Libra Last Quarter Moon at 16°17′
ॐOracular Mantra—finding a balance between inner calm and chaos while navigating actual storms and restructuring…
Everything is changing, your Not Yet is unfolding… and even the most solid and seemingly secure foundations are vulnerable to the demands and responsibilities of re-examining, redefining, repairing and entirely restructuring both your immediate and long-range goals and ideals.
It is as if there is an eerie calm within this new chaos—should you find your center, and collect your calm, it might even reward you…
❝The story of life repeatedly assures you that if you will use what you have, you will be given more to use.❞
Your bluer than blue horizons are requiring your resilience, and perseverance, to confront the balancing and potential rebalancing of your actual circumstances toward that which you have in mind, as well as actively working toward and building in regard to your goals and ideals. Plans need to be implemented and strategized, and prepared in ways that work to effectively restructure, repair, redefine, and re-examine the basis of your needs and the ‘why’ of what you’re working toward… and these plans need to be put into action.
You may think you’ve got everything covered, that everything is secure and stable and situationally sound—look deeper, look underneath the surface illusion, look within yourself and how everything is reflectively being highlighted…
Look within the calm of the chaos.
These highlights are communicating to you that which needs to be honestly and authentically addressed.
❝You are what you are and you are where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You change what you are and you change where you are by changing what goes into your mind.❞
There is a disconnect, however subtle, however unrecognizable.
Readjust your centeredness as necessary. A reconnect will occur. Like a light switch.
Further, try not to get too caught up in many of the details now—they may simply be a distraction; rise above the fray, the frenzy, the fuzzy, and the fret—you’re better than that, these are but hooks to catch you up.
Also, as you work to make these repairs and adjustments it is essential to practice patience, follow through thoroughly, and faithfully, and to move forward slowly and steadily, especially as Mars, the action planet, has finally moved into Taurus from being in Aries since June 28, 2020… you’ve been fighting the fight, truly, and lines have been drawn—your personal hero’s journey is now authoring the necessary time to nurture your needs, the needs of/for which you are fighting, in rich fertile soils of potential and true growth… the stuff of evolution and breaking through previously believed limitations.
It is possible that what you’re really looking for, or looking to rebalance, is a sense of meaning—or, rather, a renewed version thereof.
To ask yourself what the meaning that lies beneath your ideals really is—to also say: the meaning within your struggle, as it might feel as though all of your hard work is simply no longer enough—this is not enough, this is too surface-focused…
❝Failing is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.❞
What you’re actually seeking, the real core of it all—is purpose.
Meaning is how something or someone is defined, as well as an intention, or reason for doing something… purpose is the fulfillment of the meaning.
One intends, the other accomplishes.
Meaning is either a real or imagined belief, a belief that something has a beneficial use, or a legitimate reason for being.
Purpose, however, assigns value… and value can be temperamental, overlooked, unassuming, or entirely mismanaged and misunderstood at every turn, if one is missing the point of it all—what is the «value» of your purpose?—is this, perhaps, what’s confronting an inner struggle within yourself?
You’re struggling to experience the value of a necessary accomplishment…
It is likely that even the most reasonably secured scenarios and previously planned-for precautions, or weather-resistant efforts of prevention, in terms of goals, ideals, and new foundations, are being put to a somewhat stormy test—this is not in an effort to blow over everything you have been building, but to gain new awareness toward what is requiring some repair or restructuring, in an effort to further strengthen and accommodate your bonds, goals and ideals, and that is all…
❝When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.❞
The degree through which today’s last quarter moon occurs associates itself with a ‘calm mind’, through a degree which follows a degree associated with the need for repairs after a storm… to imply that you have «survived» a storm.
And when you’re able to confront yourself at the source of your inner needs and motivations, and a renewed sense of purpose, you can then make the necessary repairs and adjustments to become stronger, and more efficient, and you will then possess “the capacity to gain an objective and calm understanding of human experiences in which one was once deeply involved…”
In fact, today’s moon also applies a square to Mercury through most of the afternoon and finally exacts this square in the later hours of the night through a degree which associates itself, as ‘an airplane sails, high in the clear sky’, with “a consciousness able to transcend the conflicts and pressures of the personal life… [this degree] symbolizes the capacity, latent in every individual, to contemplate the stress of existence in our world of duality from a higher level—through the use of his mind, backed by the efforts and struggles of past generations and the cooperation of other men, the individual can gain a new perspective on human problems and reach freedom and peace in a supernal realm of being.”
Remember that, as lovely and Venusian as Libran energies are, these energies are governed by air, and thereby, by mental capacity—Libran energies are all mental, logical, reasonable, and just, however harshly… if it’s no longer making any rational or realistic sense to continue living within a self-limiting narrative of your own making that is keeping you down or behind or seemingly less than—manage this imbalance.
We create our own barriers and our own limitations when we subscribe to the parallel and dualistic doctrines of a man-made misery we refer to as ‘reality’, and this, however harshly it may read, is a choice.
The perpetuatingly untamed, unmanaged ego is rarely interested in risking the dismantling of any childhood conditioning, false memories, programming, pain, or engrained patterning for true ease of life… your triggered ego would rather you cling to your misery, whatever it may be, because it’s yours.
❝One of the main reasons people fail to reach their full potential is because they are unwilling to risk anything.❞
It’s all a balance—both within and without, as above so below…
Calm and chaos are but the same energy—one is managed, the other: triggered or disrupted. What is disrupted, and simultaneously triggered in reaction is a very useful universal indicator that something simply needs managed, not survived.
Daily management creates long-term accomplishments, and there is value to be honored in each day of this process.
That is all.
