Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres:
We move into the Disseminating phase of the Moon today, the time when interpersonal communications are at a high for the month, enabling us to provide and receive feedback and information that is important to our development and to the fullest expression of who we are. Information rains down from the sky.
Today the Sun is located at the degree of "two heads looking out and beyond the shadows."
We are wise to step outside of ourselves and our own perceptions and look at things from other perspectives -- from another's point of view or from the other side's point of view. We look at things a different way.
A primary result of looking at both sides of something is RE-EVALUATION. "Value" is the key part of the word. When we change our perception, we change our mind, and this changes our "value system." What we deem as worthy or treasurable comes to a new level.
Also, Venus' retrograde through September 6 is taking our views of the past into wider arenas precisely for the same purpose of overhauling what we value. Venus' light wants us to see reality, and, continuing from yesterday, it will make things "stand out" in order for us to recognize them. Things may "come apart" or deconstruct into smaller parts in order for us to take in or "process" the wisdom and understand.
Today's energetics naturally involve a level of duality or division with situations so that we can take in a bigger view, but we won't let that divide and conquer us. The process of seeing other sides or ways or possibilities actually unifies and integrates.
If things appear to be coming apart, it is more likely that they are being re-evaluated.
One of my favorite books as a youngster was Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. A mishap (or what was perceived as a mishap) occurs when a magic potion meant to bring happiness and great adventures is accidentally spilled onto a peach. The magic is so powerful that it delivers happiness and great adventures to James (and the creatures inhabiting the peach when it was transformed) even through the mishap. It still happened; it just didn't happen the way James envisioned (or wanted) it to happen.
When we look at things a different way, we see that there is more going on than meets the eye. We engage the magic. This is our mission to fulfill today.
