Today is a day for casting lines. We cast off from people, places, things, beliefs, habits, thoughts that have run dry. We cast toward new opportunities, new ways of thinking, and new ways of being. This is part of the shifting/changing that is underway this month.
We can already see aggression and conflict intensifying as we build toward the July 3 - 6 window of time when Mars contacts the Eris Point (favored degree for insertion of chaos) and the Sun contacts Pluto. These contacts are happening at 180 degrees apart, when these electromagnetic and archetypal energies reach fullest expression. These energies combine to make dramatic events, aggressive and even warlike behavior, conflict, and anger turned inward in the form of depression.
However, they also bring deep and lasting transformation, revelation of truth, energy for repairing or rectifying things, unification of our inner masculine and feminine, and re-acquisition of personal power that has eluded us.
People are responding and reacting to these energies in various ways. Resistance to change makes it harder to handle. The way to open to changes is to recognize that they just may, in fact, liberate you from what is causing distress or dissatisfaction in the first place.
Many things are on display today. They stand out. We can easily see the brilliance in others. We see where abundance may lie. We see where we want to aim. These are things we want to focus on. We want to turn away from things from the past that haunt us - especially perceived mistakes. Along with this, there is a strong push to cover up, mask, or hide what we do not want others to see.
Everything casts us in a new direction today as a shift in consciousness takes place. Be open to those opportunities. Be on the lookout for them. As a reminder, today's photo from wise owl Marie is from Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado.
