I have often felt like I have been treading water this year. In comparison to many that is a good thing since there is a generalised feeling that we are all drowning in an economic disaster zone where politics is no longer a dialogue but an imposed regime of cutbacks and hardship for those already at their limit. Sabre rattling continues across the globe and many are reaching the end of their tether, possibly whipped up by clandestine groups and influences in an undercurrent of disturbing unrest and rising anger.
I have indeed been fortunate in that I am not drawn into those scenarios and have the space and time to attend to matters of a higher level. None the less it has not been an easy year by any means. Attempting to go it alone and leap into the unknown in many respects has been both rewarding and frustrating. The one step forward, two steps back syndrome has accompanied me all the way (see previous blog Timing and Intention).
Today there is a full moon in the sign of Taurus. This signifies a time to contemplate what still needs to be done and what just amounts to wasted effort. Taurus gives the ability to persevere to the point of bullishness but is also practical and tactical in its approach. With the sun in Scorpio it is the season of sifting through old habits and paradigms and settling on giving our energy only to the projects that add deep meaning and a sense of purpose to our lives.
With this in mind I shall be sticking to my 'bigger picture' project but being very aware that the paths that lead to it meander and often turn off in quite unexpected directions. Remaining open to opportunity whilst being vigilant and using discernment about what is likely to be a dead end, I shall keep plodding on relentlessly constantly on the look out for that little ray of light to guide my way.
