Daily Magic: May 23, 2017 {On The Harsh Reality Of Things}

The quiet, lunar darkness is deceiving as tension and questions about our personal decisions ferment within.

The inner tension comes from the “yes, I do; actually no, I don’t” Gemini polarities I talked about yesterday. We simply live in a world of paradox, and the sooner we can accept that opposing things can both be true, the better.

But there’s something else that’s eating at us. It’s an underlying doubt that we can achieve our heart’s dream, or that we have what it takes to make it a reality.

And this, my friends, is what we need to face, as painful and scary as that might be. The upcoming Mars Saturn opposition is going to push us into it anyway.

Now, we can measure what we really want with the way things are according to the harsh reality of things. Then we find out we were the fool for going after a fantasy. Our criticizers were right. And we’re stuck in mind-numbingly boring, controlling, heartless institutional enslavement the rest of our days. Or failure.

And it’s a good idea to go there. Imagine that. Feel that. Feel the disappointment, the heartbreak, and the hopeless sorrow. I had a nice emotional release this morning while meditating on the worst case scenario.

But I’ve got some news from the cosmos. That’s not where we’re headed. As a collective consciousness, we’re breaking free from our chains of fear-based slavery and prisons of false love.

SO STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR CLEARLY DEFINED DREAM no matter how unrealistic it is. Also, banish the self-doubt and the narcissists, and invest is that one wise friend. Transitions are rarely easy, but transitioning we are.

May your life be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
