use your Zen mind this weekend

IF YOU CAN TAKE A BREAK FROM THE CONFLICTING ENERGIES AND EMOTIONS AND MOODS: No one said life was going to be easy and you could have and be anything you want, did they? Actually, my research into the Millennial generation indicates that their well-meaning parents actually told them that this was true! Well, obviously it is not true but a person can still make an impact on society. Amy Zerner and I have done it. It takes time, work and patience, but it can be done. And we're just starting, or at least we feel that way. Zen mind, beginner's mind, remember? And you can’t worry about whether or not you are getting “recognition” for what you are doing. Doing the work is its own reward and creates an awareness in a person that magnetizes to them all kinds of good stuff and experiences and love and more stuff like that there! We're all going to need our Zen mind this weekend because Mars has JUST gone out of my Sun sign, Aquarius, where it has been inclining everyone and anyone to be wild and crazy and different and to make an impact and now it is in Pisces, which is more in line with "There, there, everything is going to be OK. Don't drive yourself crazy. You are beloved.” So those two Mars placements can induce whiplash of the spirit. And Mars/Pisces is in a loose trine (120 degrees, the "good" aspect!) to Venus, which has JUST gone stationary direct, retrograde no more, which is also opposite Uranus/Aries, so there is sexual electricity crackling in the air. Venus is in its home sign of Libra (it's also at home in Taurus, but that's for another day) so balance is fighting to become ascendant in the cosmos but, as I posted the other day, all the planets are on one half of the solar system so one half of everyone's charts is lit up like a pinball machine and the other half is watching the action in relative darkness, receiving it as aspects/angles, which can be very powerful, but the action on the Libra through Aries side of the tracks is Conjunction Junction and INTENSE! Oh, and did I mention little old Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius tomorrow? Remember, with Mercury Retrograde, my patented saying is “Be Aware and you don’t have to Beware.” It’s a great time to finish what’s been started, to get the replacement for the wrong whatever you just bought. REview, REnovate, REgenerate, REstore, REst. And Mars/Pisces is now a degree away from EXACTLY square (90 degrees, at cross purposes with) Jupter in ITS home sign of Sag! The desire to make an impact, to do BIG THINGS is almost overwhelming and REstraint might be called for! To paraphrase a famous advertisement meant to increase parental awareness of where their children were, "It's the Weekend of November 16th 2018. Do you know where your heart center is?” The next few days will incline you to come to grips with who you are, who you want to be, and who you want to be with (and not be with, too!) Stay true to your school of thought. Stay tuned to the resonant frequency of your core beliefs, they've gotten you this far. Be a rock for another person, another being. You can do that and just about anything once you know yourself and your limitations. As the legendary Chinese General philosopher Sun Tzu famously said, “If you know yourself and you know your enemy, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” Life is a battle, Millennials and everyone else. And the first rule of warfare is “Make your base secure.” - Clausvitz Self-esteem is the only way to feel secure. If you don’t have it, you don’t think you can survive and that leads to all kinds of self-fulfilling prophecies, none of them good. Self-esteem is earned, true, but you have a lot about yourself which you can be proud of right now. Just don't look for another to fulfill you. Don't try to change anyone. It's hard enough to change yourself. So just be yourself. Really. It’s enough. For most of us, our biggest problem is thinking that we’re not good enough just the way we are. We ARE good enough, and I’m not just saying it because I’m a crazy Aquarian with a Leo Rising and a love everyone Pisces Moon. Well, maybe just a little. But I’ll bet you’re an amazing person!!!! Hmm. Maybe I would have been one of those Parents of Millennials!!!??!? Uh, oh. This weekend is going to be INTENSE!!!
