As the author of this blog, I would be doing all of you a disservice if I didn’t tell you that I’m an optimist of the highest order.
There’s rarely a day that goes by where I don’t think about the capacity for people to transform their lives for the better, breaking the chains of confining ideologies and the potential for human development.
However, when we put our Astrological thinking caps on, one of the most important things for us to remember is that everything has a flip side.
I do the best I can to avoid placing planets, signs, aspects and houses into static and confining categories as “good” and “bad”.
Realistically speaking, we must realize that everything we know to be a favorable about a certain astrological sign, configuration or placement carries the same potentials to manifest unfavorably in one’s birth chart. This is important to know because with some self-observation, we could possibly avoid the traps and pitfalls that come with an underdeveloped part of ourselves.
We will not always exhibit the highest form of our astrological makeup, but the desire and intent to push forward and become more than what we are is what will help us avoid the excessive weight of belaboring over our imperfections.
It’s an exhilarating feeling when we witness our own growth, when we get a larger glimpse of what we’re meant to become.
The key is to build on that flash of insight or that stream of consciousness and integrate it into our psyche so we become more confident, and are able to radiate that to the world. To show gratitude and reverence for becoming closer to our cosmic blueprint is one of the greatest gifts we can bestow upon the universe.
In turn, staying grounded, and keeping a firm hold on the reality of our limitations has its own set of advantages.
Remember: Sunday’s best can turn into Monday’s worst.
Even though this may be the case, let’s be patient with ourselves.
