ॐOracular Mantra—larger-than-life thoughts and instincts regarding the authenticity of endings and beginnings and potentials of all things are resonating and reverberating…

Why do we feel the need to compensate?

What is it we’re doing when we overcompensate?

Wikipedia tells us… “in psychology, compensation is a strategy whereby one covers up, consciously or unconsciously, weaknesses, frustrations, desires, or feelings of inadequacy or incompetence in one life area through the gratification, or drive toward, excellence in another area… compensation can cover up either real or imagined deficiencies and personal or physical inferiority—positive compensations may help one to overcome one’s difficulties, on the other hand, negative compensations do not, which result in a reinforced feeling of inferiority.

There are two kinds of negative compensation: overcompensation and undercompensation…

Overcompensation is characterized by a superiority goal, which leads to striving for power, dominance, self-esteem, and self-devaluation.

Undercompensation, which includes a demand for help, leads to a lack of courage and a fear for life.

❝There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.❞
——John Lennon

Alfred Adler, founder of the school of individual psychology, introduced the term compensation in relation to inferiority feelings; he argued that a perceived inferiority or weakness led to physical or psychological attempts to compensate for it… such compensation, obviously, could be positive or negative in its effects.

The typically joyful and playful and lively Leo moon squares Uranus and Mercury before moving void of course*—all before 7:30am here on the west coast… and so the voided and balsamic Leonine moon renders its natural liveliness a bit deflated and so transfers its energies, or overcompensates them, instead, to the influences of a currently breakthrough/breakdown balancing Libran sun.

The sun—by tradition is Leo’s ruler anyway—begins applying the heavyweights in Capricorn from Libra, and today exacts its square to a somewhat weakened Jupiter at 18°42′, while Jupiter exacts its ongoing sextile (since roughly mid-September) with Neptune at 18°45’—which was last exacted on July 27th at 20°.

These are both definitely larger-than-life energies, separately…

Your reality, or reality as it is, may feel larger-than-life today, or through this week, and it may feel somewhat effortless for you to capture either a deliciousness or deficit about it that isn’t typically acknowledged or experienced… and this will all hinge upon how you’ve been navigating your circumstances up to this point. Although, it is possible that—despite your recent perspectives or perceptions or previous programming—you’ll be somewhat unwilling to accept deficit, or unable to allow for deliciousness, and be more inclined to go out of your way, in either way, and beyond your means to fulfill any lack or enjoy those little sweetnesses in life, deservingly or not.

And this is just the background soundtrack…

❝Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.❞
——Marianne Williamson
