Current Energy–Go it Alone or Honor the Whole? Aquarius Leo Polarity of Sun Full/Moon Relates to Communication with Community; I-Ching Kua 37

This message is about effective and sincere communication—and hopefully I can do that here in the paragraphs that follow as this divination message unfolds.  And this message is also about FACEBOOK type teamwork that is respectful so that efforts can be successful with each person understanding the importance of their own role.  It’s been a while and it’s time for another blog post—sometimes I seek clarity by turning to a divination method and more often than not it’s been the I-Ching.  I’ve gone through almost all of the Kua’s now and have only 3 more left.  Maybe we can ask to gain some insight and perspective about the current pattern of energy generally speaking.  There’s astrology as a method but I’ve covered a bit of that lately in on my Facebook Wall, so I’ll let that stand and look toward this other divination method now for some wisdom and guidance.  What should we consider about the current energy pattern now and how to respond to it most wisely?

Well, sure enough this does relate to the Sun being in Aquarius now; it’s Kua 37 and has to do with the clan/community/family/ancestry/heredity archetype.  The human family—how we have so many differences but how we are also all alike; two eyes, a nose and mouth even though there are so many other differences.  Focusing on what we have in common—the common heredity; that is how we can respond most wisely to the current energy pattern!  You can apply that wisdom or guidance in about as many different ways as there are stars in the sky—dependent upon the current question or concern of your life.

Ha!  Just look at the image of the Kua 37 called THE FAMILY and tell me that you cannot help but think of Facebook!  Wu Wei’s Book of Answers calls this Kua THE GROUP and indicates the influence of the family or group is helpful as far as enabling you to accomplish more than you could alone.

I’m still marveling at how today’s Full Moon in Leo is triggering the opposing Sun in Aquarius which is so much in archetypical alignment with this Kua 37.   That’s Aquarius energy—the group, the clan.

The current energy is about everyone fulfilling their duties and functioning for the good of the whole with humanitarian attitudes such as loyalty and dedication and sticking with one another during times of external conflict.  Families and clans, after all, protect one another and they share resources.

Sometimes standing apart and separate just simply doesn’t work if we want energy to move forward—we have to think inclusively.  What do you have to offer the world?  That’s what this Kua seems to be asking us to consider.  This is how we can best work with the current energy—to consider this inner question in some way and then respond to it, finding some way to share what is the best that we have to offer in order to play our part well.

Focus on strengthening mutual support now and we can practice this within the home and family unit if not at work or in organized groups.

Honor the opinions of others and respect your own opinion too while at the same time realizing that they will not always match—they’re not supposed to!  The ideal is to find the common ground and build on that.  Blend the male/female energy of both authority and gentleness.

This is the perfect Kua to draw when the Sun is in Aquarius (and conjunct Mercury today no less!) opposing the Leo Full Moon.

“We are all members of one human family. Faced
with constant threats to their survival, our ancestors–
black, red, yellow, and white–developed family and
tribal bonds. Clans, tribes, nations have fought one
another down the ages to protect themselves and
 further their bloodlines, customs, and beliefs. Now, as
a species, we have finally reached a threshold: we
can no longer afford to base our relationships on
 factionalism and noncooperation. If we remain
entrenched within our collective inheritance of
aggression, fear, and separation, we will bring to a
 standstill life as we know it.” –Ma Deva Padma

 

How to Move Through February 2012; Divining some Guidance for the Upcoming Month I-Ching Kua 44

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.
