Sunday, July 20, 2014: Today a calm but somewhat somber mood prevails. You're now ready to consolidate situations that have been developing since last fall. This is a clear reality check in terms of what's working and what's not. You're taking another step forward and leaving your past behind, whether you know it or not.

The world and life has been.. to say the least... gnarly this year. After months of stops, turns and reversals you began to slowly gain traction. Just recently a door to your future was opened, you moved toward it... but stopped at the threshold and only got a glimpse of what was on the other side. It's was as if a voice was whispering to you... "Wrong door" or "Here it is but you're not yet ready... you still have work to do on yourself before you earn entry". You'll have to decide which works for you. That could be a question you should be asking yourself now.

There are many inner voices that create the mind chatter we hear as we go about our day to day life. Sometimes they agree, sometimes they don't and sometimes they negotiate... sometimes one shouts... while others whisper... And sometimes what they say is so divergent that is can seem there is no way you can do what they are urging you to do.

"Two perspectives, two methods, two sets of values, completely widdershins to each other, and yet stronger together than they ever could be on their own. To get it right, each must stretch and adjust to accommodate the sheer alien weirdness of the other one." (July's Saturn-Uranus Quincunx: Adjustments Ahead by astrologer Steven Forrest)

These are the two voices that have been waging war and nagging at you for quite some time, sometimes loudly and sometime only as whispers in the background. But this weekend and into early next week both will be particularly loud. One, the shrewd, careful and conservative voice of caution, filled with fears anxieties and limitations, says stop, go back over things, look to the past. While the other, the hot-headed aggressive radical non-conformist, shouts ... "Out with the old and in with the new... be fearless... look to the future... get on with it... do something brave, different, unexpected... move forward, change and create the future!

Individuals who are naturally more conservative, careful and fearful of change will resonate to the voice of caution. While individuals who are naturally more aggressive, rebellious and open to change will throw caution to the wind and answer the call of the wild. But clearly, unless you are able to find some common ground, you can't do both.

What do these waring voices have in common? Well... both have the "now"" in common, and both say assert yourself and be self-made... they just want you to go about it in different ways. So the question now becomes how are you going to assert yourself... fearlessly and unconventionally... or shrewdly and carefully?

Perhaps, at least for now, it's best to accept, adjust, listen to both sides of the argument in your head... write down the dialogue, and see what happens.

Today's Quote

“There are four things you need to know about war. One, every action requires careful tactics. Two, never lose hope and fight only for what is right. Three, be brave but you don't have to be fearless. And four, be willing to sacrifice.” ― Courtney Allison Moulton, Wings of the Wicked
