As July becomes August 2021 tomorrow, we are more than half way through another turbulent, transformative year.
This weekend, there is a “superior conjunction” between the Sun & Mercury in Leo. I love to look at and explore the symbolism and imagery around important energetic shifts and often go to Sabian symbols interpretations for insight. (Sabian symbols are images for each degree of the zodiac originally by the astrologer Dane Rudhyar)
The Sabian symbol for Leo 10 is “Early morning dew salutes the sunlight”
This suggests, the return of the morning light after a long night of restlessly dreaming and testing our strength and faith in nightmares and dark dives into the subconscious. Rudhyar uses the key word: Transfiguration
We seem to be at a peak of darkness and difficulty, climate change, heat, wildfire smoke, torrential rains, flooding, corona delta variant rising, continuing revelations of corruption and criminality, of polarization and conflict. The questions become: How to BE with all of this turbulence? How to find and express our uniqueness, our individuality and see our place in the energetics of society? How to live the Aquarian paradox of sovereignty and freedom and at the same time contribute to the well being of the collective? How can we fulfill our purpose to express ourSelves completely and to include all of our interconnections?
We must (not we have to or should) go deep and wide. We must make choices from a holistic spiritual space rather than a fragmented one. we must release our attachments to control, to past patterns that are no longer life affirming. We must be who we are in this moment in time, vulnerable human beings and magnificent powerful souls – Both, together, Now!
