I was in a session with my therapist the other day (yes, I have one, and she’s wonderful) reflecting on the many conversations I had had throughout the week. There was a common theme that came up over and over again, on how many of us operate under some kind of foreign authority. This foreign authority begins with the conditions of our upbringing set forth by our parents, and continues through our academic experiences. It is further influenced by social contacts, and eventually solidified by man-made laws that govern. I say that these authorities are foreign because they typically fail to incorporate our true values. While I do believe we need rules in place for living life on planet Earth, I prefer they not cancel out my own code of ethics.
We’re in between eclipses, which Astrologers describe as the veil between heaven and hell. I personally don’t believe this two-week window to be so dramatic, but as we approach a Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Libra on Saturday, April 4th, an opportunity to right a wrong will arise (particularly a wrong that has had us hard wired to live, think, and be according to someone else’s mandate). If you’re ready to live life on your own terms, don’t stick to the same ‘ol broken record when the needle clearly wants to skip tracks. In other words, only you can change your tune.
