It's Thursday, April 29th - an '11' day, numerologically (did you remember that this is a Master Number? All about keeping the peace...); and a 'leaf' day, biodynamically through tomorrow at 11:00am. Then we move to 'root.'
This morning, bright and early (well, maybe not so bright, as it's been drizzly, rainy, gray all day) I heard traffic slowing in front of the barn. How happy was I to realize this was the Green Mountain Power co. moving their recently-installed-new-telephone-pole-anchor out of my lawn and closer to the edge of the garden bed.
That became the metaphor for today.
It was an opportunity for me to re-anchor, check stability, and address all of the issues that have been bubbling to the surface.
This has been somewhat challenging, as several new friends and acquaintances are mirroring serious reflections up for healing.
Thank you, I say. And:
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Undoubtedly, this is being assisted/magnified with Pluto moving retrograde (from April 27th through October 7th). Pluto is 'The Alchemist.' Here's what my astrologer friend Lisa has to say about this occurrence:
"The next five months may be an intense period when going deep becomes the norm as we work to blend the dark with the light in our current unfolding reality.
Pluto is ruler of Scorpio, the deeply cathartic sign connected with the 8th House of sex, death, obsessions, power and joint assets. Even given the fact that it's a pretty far out planet, it is both globally and personally a catalyst for major change, especially in situations that no longer serve your highest good. This transformative process inspires you to better listen to your innate, inner guidance so that you might overcome limiting beliefs. This, in turn, will expose traumas that need healing, individually and collectively. Pluto in retrograde motion has the capacity to reveal the falsehoods you have allowed to rule your life. All of this ultimately helps you become more empowered to rise like a phoenix from the ashes."
Sounds like all energy is working on our behalf... ultimately.
Like today's Gate 24:Line 3 - The addict "The powerful attraction of regressive forms. Exaltation: The ultimate though difficult triumph over regression. The difficult but possible task of overcoming irrationality."
I'll leave you with Martha Beck's inspirational demo of what dissolving rigidity and old structures could look like. It's us, I say; re-anchoring resolve to bring love and light.
