Things may take us by surprise today. One thing that may surprise us is the intensity (a pounding, even) of emotions.
The Sun is disseminating the energy of 5 Taurus and the Sabian symbol (frequency) of "a widow at an open grave."
The Earth is located at the energy of 5 Scorpio and the Sabian symbol (frequency) of "a massive, rocky shore resists the pounding of the sea."
Since we are now interested in balancing the energies of the day, a balance of these would be to fill in the grave of the past, turn, and walk away. Further, it may be easier to dive deeply into something instead of remaining on the sidelines.
The Moon energetically connected with Pluto (via astrological opposition) earlier today, which has "charged" things with the special depth of intensity that Pluto provides. The Moon is in Cancer, which is a water sign, a carrier of emotion. This can take the emotionality of the day to even greater depths.
Knowing that things are prone to go deep today, we can align with it and direct ourselves deeply into something that is "grounding" for us. When we are "grounded" we are solidly balanced and connected. You could think of it as remaining sane. Spending time outdoors is the best method for grounding, because we are just like trees with deep roots grounded in the Earth. The Earth, Gaia Sophia, keeps us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually healthy.
Focusing on tasks (even mundane tasks), cleaning, and organizing are also helpful when the energetics are so highly emotional. But the thing to know is that we are much more than our emotions, and we have no need to be victims of anything. Emotions and circumstances of the past provide the material (raw material though it is sometimes) to learn how to create. Creation is evolution. And here we are at the Second Renaissance.
In the old world, emotions looped into victimization paradigms. In the new world, emotions create, innovate, invent, and discover. The mission today is to follow our emotions to create, innovate, invent, or discover or something, but not let them take over and take us off course. Direct the energy somewhere productive.
Mercury and Mars are still in play to air things out and open up opportunities. The information field is ripe, so be mindful to plant the seeds for the future that you want to plant. Fertilize them with love, not fear.
For sure, the energies of the Sabian symbols today impart wisdom about the principle of resistance. What is the teaching for you?
