There are no beginnings without endings. That's the way it works. If you look for the Moon tonight you won't see it. The sky is dark. Take a breath. Let yesterday go. Enjoy the stillness. Then a sliver will appear. So beautiful in the dark sky. Time to take one step forward. Then another. Tomorrow's another day. (I am saying this to myself).
Mercury(communication) and Venus (relating,beauty) are together in sensual Taurus. The warm sun on the dark earth evoking our deeper passions and tastes.
And the drama continues. Saturn moved into Libra quite recently but is now going backward (retrograde) into Virgo. One more look at the details. Plus it's now back in a close opposition to Uranus in Pisces, with the square from Pluto continuing to put pressure on everyone and everything. It will wear you down or tear you down. And Pluto will also release the Phoenix in us and we will rise from the ashes (once the dust clears).
And to bring us hope very soon Jupiter will join Uranus in Pisces and inspire visions of the future.
I Ching 15. Modesty
MODESTY creates success.
The superior person carries things through. It is the law of heaven to make fullness empty
and to make full what is modest;
when the sun is at its zenith, it must, according to the law of heaven, turn toward its setting, and at its nadir it rises toward a new dawn.
In obedience to the same law, the moon when it is full begins to wane, and when empty of light it waxes again.
This heavenly law works itself out in the fates of wo/men also. It is the law of earth to alter the full
and to contribute to the modest.
High mountains are worn down by the waters, and the valleys are filled up.
It is the law of fate to undermine what is full and to prosper the modest. And men also hate fullness and love the modest. The destinies of men are subject to immutable laws that must fulfill themselves. But a person has it in her power to shape her fate, according as her behavior exposes her to the influence of benevolent or of destructive forces.
Within the earth, a mountain: The image of MODESTY. Thus the superior person reduces that which is too much, And augments that which is too little. S/he weighs things and makes them equal.
