What works, was right, was the best choice at one time doesn’t always remain the best choice forevermore. Shifts happen and if we’re stuck in the past, we miss the promise of the present. One modest, clearly defined action in the NOW trumps a million years of reflection, planning, or daydreaming over what once was or might have been. Dreams can inspire and uplift, but they’re most effective when based on a picture of the energy as it now exists.
Looks to be an emotional day with the Water Element reigning. We have the inverted Six of Cups (Sun in Scorpio) and the King of Cups (Fire in Water). It’s not the time for nostalgia or acting like it’s still “the good ol’ days.” It’s not. You can, however, do well by remaining true to your emotional feedback system, acting from your heart. The trick is doing a gut check, and making sure the conditions you’re responding to are CURRENT, not old stimuli. Big difference here. The field has changed.
So if you find yourself feeling unsettled, lacking trust, fearful, longing for the sense of safety and certainty from days gone by, that’s a hint right there, your head IS in the past. Beyond learning from the experience, not much you can do there. Instead, try visualizing a release, cutting those energy cords, forgiving and blessing and letting go of old paradigms. They no longer suit and cloud your perception.
The inverted Six of Cups suggests we let that dead horse rest in peace already. The King of Cups promises emotional fulfillment if we stay attuned to our heart, our intuition, via the grand emotional feedback system that serves as compass. It’s easy, if you remain aware.
Got any dead horses to bury?
