I am not one to be pessimistic despite my blood type - B negative! I therefore wondered what was going on to promote this mood. I immediately checked the astrology for today. Ahhh, she says! The transit of the moon changing signs later today from Aquarius to Pisces is activating some sensitive responses from my natal chart. In addition on a world scale, the moon will conjunct (i.e. pass across) transiting Neptune and Chiron later today suggesting vague feelings of insecurity and old hurts raising their heads. Fortunately moon transits are very short lived and cause minimal disruption but they do affect our basic needs. This afternoon therefore will be good for going inside and finding creative outlets to express this. I am planning a book and will consider further steps later today. I have already made an agreement with a friend to write tomorrow at her house - this will make it feel like a real commitment and I will therefore get some writing done.
I do like to 'bombard' myself with positive messages in order to focus on what is good in my life. I feel that without that it is easy to drift into a malaise of general discontent. I have spent years disciplining my mind to refuse to buy into any negative thoughts which afterall are merely passing whims generated by my imagination. I will not be trussed up by the messages of doom and gloom. That's also one reason I rarely watch the news or any TV for that matter!
This morning habitually, I switched on my laptop and received a tumultuous inflow of positive messages reinforcing my determination to Keep on Keeping on! First www.tut.com "Options multiply, Sharon, when insistence lessens. And when the time is right, I'll help you choose. Be fruitful, The Universe."
Then on Facebook a friend of mine has designed her own divination cards http://sparklesoflight.weebly.com/the-hawk-princeapple.html
and had drawn two cards which gave strong support for remaining on course.
Just to reinforce this, as if I needed it by now, Doreen Virtue had also posted a short video entitled Moving Forward on Your Life Purpose
I know that we only see what we are looking for (I am a psychologist afterall!). It's selective appreciation of what is happening around us. This is very much like 'selective hearing' that we often accuse our loved ones of suffering from when we ask them to do something for us and they don't! Sometimes however we really need messages from outside ourselves to hit home in order to move on.
We can only see life through the lens of our own experience. Make sure your lens is set to 'TRUST' so that you do not become trussed up by negative invasions from your inner critic.
