Daily Astro: January 21, 2017 {On Blaming The Planets and Self-Empowerment}

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and couldn’t go back to sleep because work-related thoughts were racing through my mind. I wondered which planet is responsible for this?

Yep, I fell into that trap.

It’s a wonderful thing to stay updated and know the planetary weather. I check the planet’s positions every free moment I get.

But these energies only enhance our life experiences. They don’t replace them, or become responsible for them.

No matter what’s happening around us circumstantially, our lives are ultimately up to us.

Understanding this factor is what it means to awaken to our soul, the grander power we all possess which goes beyond these 3rd dimensional experiences.

And wouldn’t you know it, power is the word that describes the prominent cosmic energies today.

The Scorpio Moon is in aspect to three planets: Pluto, Venus, and Mars. Pluto and Mars are Scorpio’s rulers. Venus is in Pisces and the moon trines Mars in Pisces. So we’ve got powerful energies showering on us which increases our intuition, and enables us to see beyond the material realm.

The Hanged Man tarot card came up this morning for today’s card. The confirming synchronicity is astonishing. This card is all about letting go {sometimes painfully} of empty, meaningless life pursuits to awaken to the higher, more authentic power of our soul, and our fulfilling soul mission.

Of course, the Aquarius Sun and Uranus-Pluto square is also urging us to let go of outdated structures which no longer serve us. With the waning moon, we have even more reason to let go of things no longer needed, even if they’re things we enjoy.

So don’t waste time on feeble distractions or activities that don’t electrify you from deep within.

Today’s the day to embrace your power. Focus on your highest achievement and pour yourself into it.

Restoring tarot, crystals, astrology, numerology, witchery and the magical arts to their ancient esoteric roots for healing, self-discovery and self-empowerment.
