I’m going to be bold and blunt here.
In order to retrieve the “gold” of selfhood, you’re going to have to dig deep.
This Sun-Moon blend suggests dynamic and developmental tension between self-expression and self-protection.
There’s a difference between creating an alternate route for the sake of emotional safety and erecting an impenetrable fortress of the heart because of fears associated with losing control.
Working with this dynamic combination of solar heat and emotional intensity will likely clue you in to the nuances which exist between those two extremes.
There’s a emphatic need to mine the subconscious to get to the root of all of your ugly “stuff” as a means of total self-acceptance. The road to discovering your personal identity may sometimes be paved with swirling, tumultuous feelings which you would rather keep out of public view.
If you don’t know what your true motivations are, it’s more difficult to arrive at your destination successfully, so there’s a suggestion inherent in this blend that you will turn over every rock, stone and pebble of your mind to see what lies beneath. The master peeler of the layers of the psyche.
On some level, you’re also nourished through penetrating interactions with others which yield the same feelings of the fire in the belly. You know very intimately that you must have the knowledge of the heart to claim the throne.
The rabbit hole you travel may be ripe and rampant with what you wish to avoid, but meeting the challenges of navigating crisis assists you in gaining a shining picture of everything you can be.
“There’s gold in them thar hills !! ”
