Daily Divination 5-16-11 Relationship Imbalance & Projections of the Anima/Animus -Moon in Sag

 

When we are not feeling whole and balanced inside of the self, it can be because we are projecting our energy outward. 

Take the example of a male who is projecting his anima outwardly onto a woman making her the focus of what he actually needs to balance within himself.  So what I mean is that the feminine energy within himself, if not balanced and realized within his whole psyche, he will put onto a woman in his life, expecting her to hold the energy and fulfill the inner feminine role ‘for’ him instead of doing it himself. 

 For a woman, it is often her animus or male energy that she projects outward onto a male instead of holding it within herself.  

These are parts of the psyche coined by C.G. Jung.  In some of his work he calls the anima/animus a spirit guide.

In cases of these imbalances or lack of connection to one’s full psyche or soul, the individual makes the “other” in their life the de-facto god or goddess. 

And in relationships these imbalances of the psyche or soul causes one to be one’s own worst enemy which brings us to the 9 of wands that I drew today to inspire the daily message. 

The message today involves not being distracted from the knowledge of and connection to the intimate divine ‘other half’ within. 

It is necessary today to use any difficulty presenting itself, especially in relationships, to reflect on the inner state which has predisposed you to the conflict or disharmony in the first place. 

It is important to work on feeling whole, balanced and grounded and no “other” can do that for you, no matter how much of the energy you have projected upon them to carry and hold for you.  And…

 Actually, if you have enough sense of humor about it, and can stand back far enough, you can see how males project the anima on a female and then fight with this feminine part of the self in order to integrate it.  If this doesn’t cause you to laugh,one can at least smile at what is going on.  The same is true for women, but in reverse.

Of course we do this with all unconscious parts of the self… we project onto others and then fight with it  in order to become conscious of it so it can be integrated! 

Projecting outward one's unconscious qualities

 It’s all a process of returning to wholeness but in a very unconscious way of course.  I could write a book on this but for today, as I am behind my time, this is it for now.  Thus, the Cosmic Communiqué for today…  or so goes my illusion. 

PS– the motif of this card is the same archetype as Moon in Sagittarius.  Moon often represents the emotional consciousness or unconscious energy and Sag relates to personal belief .. think of the arrow being shot into the air… projecting the unconscious outward, which is what this message is about. 

I wish I had more time to correlate  the astrology with this card better, but there’s a bottom line.  By the way, the Moon moves into Sag tomorrow.

‘See you tomorrow…

Divination Message March 24, 2011 Queen of Swords, Elizabeth Taylor, Feng Shui, Sag Moon

Today’s message is about maintaining a calm and cheerful state of mind; keeping the feet on the ground and mind clear.  And also about the importance of  spending time in environments that feel right and natural to one’s spirit or energy essence.  Nature is our teacher when it comes to environments.  A flower that is cut off from the source of its nourishment, snipped from its stem, gradually wilts and dies. 

The question in today’s message has to do with asking, “Have I been separated from the source of my nourishment in any way lately?”

  When we keep ourselves strongly connected to energy that is nourishing to our body and spirit,  we are able to think more clearly.  And we are more open to receiving inspiration (and are more receptive to Life Itself in general).  Additionally, we  feel more willing to manifest our desires. 

We are more apt to be able to cut through confusion and realize what is truth for our life and what isn’t.   We’re also much more able to help others to see themselves in a much more objective way too.

Sometimes I think about moving to be closer to my daughter’s which would involve leaving the mountains.  But wonder if it might result in something like that flower being cut from the stem.  I feel nourished by my environment here in the mountains and the peaceful, quiet place here in nature.

Today’s divination message reminds us to surround ourselves, the best we can, with an environment that is supportive to our own natural energies.  Nature Itself  is already balanced.  If I had to leave the forest, I’d bring as much with me as I could by using Feng Shui which is an ancient Chinese system that uses the principles of Natural Law to help increase positive qi (chi – energy) by balancing Earth, Air, Water and Fire energy. 

Today I drew the Queen of Swords to divine a message for us; the archetypical energy of this Queen is exactly what I’ve been describing… clear and grounded.

The Queen of Swords in Tarot is a representative of  deeply truthful and honest feminine energy that has learned wisdom through what we may call “the school of hard knocks” resulting in clear-minded and realistic wisdom.  Drawing this card for today’s divination sure made me think of Elizabeth Taylor who just left her body ending her recent incarnation.  If there ever was a shining star Queen of Swords, it was her! 

Strong, independent feminine energy that knows how to communicate and is unafraid to share visions and thoughts.  This is an ideal that can be supported by staying grounded and connected with whatever it is that makes you feel that groundedness and that balance.  

Nature helps with that.  And, that ties in with today’s transiting Moon which is currently moving through the sign of Sagittarius. 

 Sag is the zodiac sign most often associated with nature and natural law. 

Sag is about honesty as well as also being the archetype of optimism, humor and philosophy too.  The Queen of Swords energy represents bold, bare-bones honesty and all that other Sag stuff–  all definately Elizabeth Taylor type energy!
