The question in mind for today’s divination message here on the last day of January 2012 is about February and how to move through this new month with grace, ease, security, contentment, prosperity and happiness. The guidance and wisdom reply comes through Kua 44, The Attraction of Opposites. Suddenly, I think of that phrase “fighting fire with fire” and envision how quickly fire can catch and spread. In the Wilhelm/Baynes Book of Changes this Kua is called “Coming to Meet”. Fire can fester below the surface, below ground roots can burn without the eye seeing fire and then suddenly the flames spring up and spread. It feels that we are being guided to keep anger, passion or any type of fiery energy from getting out of control. Interesting; since Mars (the planet associated with fire) is retrograde meaning fire energy turned inward toward oneself.
Another image that comes to mind is of heaven and earth coming to meet each other but if there is a desire for personal selfish gain at that time, the energy can backfire and disastrous results could occur. So here is, it seems, a head’s up that we should keep our efforts free of selfish motivations this month especially as we “Come to Meet” the higher energies that are available to merge with us here on Earth. Sounds pretty esoteric I suppose, but a reminder to keep our motivations altruistic and humanitarian this month can’t hurt. Careful that all of the efforts in February are not solely motivated by a desire for personal recognition and personal gain—that can get too easily out of control. As Edgar Cayce once said during a reading, “There is set before thee good and evil. Chose thou.”
Approach others throughout the month of February from a position of equality and independence with your footing on equal ground. Don’t let the wind carry the fire creating an out of control situation. Remain conscious and avoid passions becoming out of control and avoid becoming heavily invested in any particular outcome.
Transiting Mercury is moving through the constellation Aquarius now. It is nearing our Sun and will merge with our Sun on Feb 7th.
Insights from your Soul about your ‘purpose’ can flash in as this progresses if you can be clear/open these first few weeks of February 2012.
Today the Moon is in ♉ Taurus… remains until Wednesday Feb. 1st afternoon EST. Taurus ♉ rules the 2nd house of what is valued (AKA House of $money$). It’s a good time to visualize all the bills are paid and a steady stream of money flowing toward you. ♥ People are likely to be in a conservative mood when the Moon is in ♉ Taurus… folks will favor banking, gardening and generally chill-laxing! PS — the hungry ♉ Taurus Moon feels fed when its feeling secure.
