For March 2013

You're the one who brings people together. Though you may not recognize this, many see you in a kind of authority role. You tend to be so soft-spoken or at least careful that this fact might surprise you. Yet you're a stabilizing force for those around you. This is a special kind of leadership. It involves respecting what is becoming known as healing process, and availability for service. This is different than being "self-sacrificing." Indeed it is everything but a sacrifice; mutual gift would be a better description. Yet at times this can be demanding, and it's necessary to maintain your equilibrium. This is not the same as a perfect balance; equilibrium about staying in contact with who you are, even when you cannot fully express those aspects of yourself. That means staying in communication with yourself, monitoring your feelings, and being aware of your own needs. I would strongly suggest you take care of yourself, by which I don't mean long, luxurious spa treatments but rather making sure you get enough rest when possible, eat actual food and maintain your physical space. Make sure you devote some time to other interests at least every couple of days. This is all in service of something larger. You are being called upon to fulfill some truly profound aspect of your purpose, and there's really no way to tell where it will lead you, except to say deeper into yourself. I would offer one thought, courtesy of A Course in Miracles: Everyone teaches, and teaches all the time.

  • Know When You Don't Know
  • Know When You Don't Know

    I think about this concept a lot—how to know when you don't know. For most people I run it past, it's like a Zen koan, similar to "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" In this case, we could ask, "What happens when you rub one brain cell together?"

  • Putting (or Keeping) the Spiritual Body in Motion

    Right now, the astrology is suggesting it's a perfect time to bring your inner awareness and vision into some tangible, external expression. That is, to harness the energy you feel moving within you by actually doing something with it. You have to claim it through action to "own" it.

  • Cosmic PMS? Women and Men Ride This Wave

    At the risk of appearing to reinforce dismissive stereotypes about women, the following image might help you to get a handle on some of the current astrology, which is still in effect after last night’s Cancer New Moon: the planets seem to be indicating a kind of "cosmic PMS" that you might be noticing in yourself or others.
