The Moon in Scorpio has really activated that “kick you in the teeth with steel-toes” reactionary environment that we all long for.
(I really need sarcasm font).
▲This may be right up there with having dreams of being in crowded places without a stitch of clothing on after years of avoiding the gym.▲
The disadvantages of discomfort from such situations, actually serve to help us learn more constructive ways of handling conflict.
On the other hand, the advantage is that, conflict challenges us to listen closely to what the opposing viewpoint (or other side) says ♅mindfully.♅
Usually when we listen mindfully or with as little ♚ego♚ as possible, we may be more likely to make suggestions that yield a mutually beneficial outcome.
So pay close attention to what everyone is driving towards this week and take the direct approach whenever possible. Even if people are doing far too much hinting.
Am I asking for you to be thoughtless and blunt along with the tone of the oncoming Sagittarius Moon?
Yes and No! Yes be direct and make your point clear.
And No—> don’t be so rude that the focus of the conversation switches from your very good observation(s) and spirals into a battle about how obnoxious and self-righteous or dare I say “POMP-ASS!” (pompous for you grammar purists).
This is one of those weeks where the original message can easily get lost under the intensity and the need to prove that you are not “Willy Wonka” and you don’t “candy coat” nothing.
So without making this a post about non-verbal and non-violent communication techniques, just consider how you present your tone and intention at this time if you TRULY want the other side to “hear” you.
After all, if you have inflamed the other side, all they can do is now list everything that you are doing wrong in their head as you are enumerating or listing all of your useful facts and criticisms.
(Cough! Cough! Virgo! Cough! Cough!)
Mercury ruled Virgo and Gemini place a spin on the north and south poles of reason while the cosmic magician is retrograde. Since it started its journey in emotional Cancer and ends in (overly) analytical Gemini, you may see a lot of finger pointing about emotions versus logic and reason.
Don’t believe the hype, both sides have great traits and neither approach may be perfect. Perhaps balance is the key?
Not everyone can deal with the emotions (water) of others as many consider this to be a “boundary” issue. That said, analyzation (air) can easily be seen as a Neptunian “shell game” (insert water sign joke here,) so that the person can avoid all messy emotional topics without having to work on themselves or even acknowledge that any problems exist. But we know air can be so very sharp.
This may be why air is equated with metal among the five (5) elements in the east and why we often refer to air as blades or swords in The Tarot. Words can cut like a knife.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, I believe that there is a reason the word “anal” is part of the word analyzation and I will allow you to come to your own conclusion(s) about that.
This whole sky-father Jupiter theme will help us to adapt and work within the constraints of authority figures while we sort out the various types of debts chaining us down over this coming season.
So that G Minor tone is only getting us prepared for the A Major tone that will be unleashed at the Full “Thunder moon” in Capricorn right as Jupiter prepares its ingress into fiery Action Hero LEO!
Chiron/Sagittarius is the ultimate life coach and healer. Reminding us that no challenging situation takes place without its benefits and rewards.
One must simply seek out the knowledge gained from the challenge, learn to apply that knowledge with the wisdom of experience, and gallop along the waters of healing, growth and self-forgiveness.
After all, letting go frees up more space for the cycle of challenge, learning and growth to continue constructively.
Hopefully each of you will accept your call to action to learn from your trials and tribulations. You don’t need to be Achilles, Castor and Pollux, Jason or many of the heroes on the ship called “Argo” we recognize as “Argonauts.” You nearly need to be ready to accept all of the challenges symbolized by Sagittarius’ bow and arrow. Remember, such challenges can come and go in the flash of Jupiter’s thunder bolt but these challenges are here to develop you, not destroy you.
BEHIND EVERY CHALLENGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GREATER SUCCESS!
