Later today we have the full moon in the sign of Gemini, which means the moon is in Sagittarius, the opposite sign of Gemini. What makes this full moon especially interesting is that Mercury is currently stationing to go direct tomorrow, and we’re in the middle of a T-Square, which I discussed in my newsletter that went out last night. In short, this is a very intense time full of opportunities for adaptation and growth, but only if we move with the current of our lives rather than putting our ego against it. Some could say this can be translated to surrender or destiny, and while both of those could be true, it could just as easily be said that this is the time to put to work the art of alchemy: changing lead into gold, or lemons into lemon juice, as it were.
Yes, you guessed it. This is the time of extreme pressure and a lot of starts and stops, but it is only through pressure that we can be transformed into a diamond. However, that means that first things are getting shaken up so that we can work with them in a higher vibrational way. There’s a very powerful lesson that I learned several years ago that is definitely in play now, and that is that there are two ways to approach changes: you either wait for them to happen, which means they usually happen outside of your control, or you make changes happen, which usually puts you more in the driver’s seat. Of course we can’t control ~all~ the changes that come along in life, but if we take concerted effort to create changes in line with our Will, we demonstrate to the universe that we will be as proactive as we will be reactive, and this can be a powerful statement, not just to ourselves, but also to others.
“But Bill, where do I start with these changes? They seem overwhelming!” Yes, they can be seen as overwhelming, but the easy rule of thumb to use is to remember the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.” (Reinhold Niebuhr, no challenge to copyright intended) By using our active intelligence, we can discern what we can change and what we can’t, and then take steps to implement the changes in line with our greatest growth and good, for that is the lesson of this time. This intense period will last until late July, so it’s going to be around a while, which means we can begin now, and adjust our methods and techniques as it is necessitated.
Without going to deep into things, there are a lot of things happening in my world, so stay tuned if there’s something you’re desiring. I’m not going to list it all here, but a lot of events, writing projects, and classes are coming into being, especially here on the website, so if you’re interested, definitely check it out!
