Our special destiny is calling (Uranus in Aries, Jupiter North Node). We know it, we feel it.
We sense that we may need to break away from the pack to manifest our dream (Eris Uranus Aries). That's a bit scary, but we persevere. We are impatient to get there, (Aries) yet we find ourselves resisting the work required (Saturn in Sagittarius), causing us to feel stymied, blocked. Yet , despite our misgivings, we know deep down that unimaginable change is occurring/has occurred, though it may be still under the surface waiting to manifest. Shocks and upsets make us pay attention. Suddenly, or unexpectedly, there is a slowing down, or a complete change of direction (Mars Retrograde).
This throws us back on ourselves as we are forced to reexamine our plans and our vision. Doubts arise as to what we are doing and what we believe in (Saturn in Sagittarius) . Are we there yet?
As we revisit our plans, questions appear. There are discrepancies. Disillusionment . Our core beliefs and assumptions come under fire. Distrust arises. (Neptune square Mars and Saturn)
We discover what works for you doesn't necessarily work for me (and vice versa) We discover 'Truth' is relative. "We' are relative.
As hidden factors come to the surface conflict may occur. Trying to force the situation won't work. Surrender required.
Communication is key. Clarity is key. Compassion is key (for self and others). Consider carefully the beginning.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
Know yourself. Know your enemy.
Face the shadow, find the Sun.
All will be well.
3. Difficulty at the Beginning
" a blade of grass pushing against an obstacle as it sprouts out of the earth"
Times of growth are beset with difficulties.
They resemble a first birth. But these difficulties arise from the very profusion of all that is struggling to attain form . Everything is in motion: therefore if one perseveres there is a prospect of great success, in spite of the existing danger. When it is a person's fate to undertake such new beginnings, everything is still unformed, dark.
Hence one must hold back, because any premature move might bring disaster. Likewise, it is very important not to remain alone; in order to overcome the chaos we need helpers. This is not to say, however, that you should look on passively at what is happening. You must lend your hand and participate with inspiration and guidance. I Ching
