The Sun prepares to conjoin Jupiter in tropical Mutable Fire, or Sagittarius.
What times you have lived in and how deeply you have been called to question the very fabric of who you are and what you stand for. Deeply you have been asked to dive, blindly too, as the waters through which you swam were cold and dark. There were times when it felt easier to keep diving in and down, surrendering to the dark, letting the current wash through you, bleaching your sight, deafening your ears, tainting your tongue and numbing your sOul. There were times when you swam close to the edge of that whirlpool, surrendering your strength and wishing the current take you wherever.
Yet despite the trepidation, you still held firm; yet within the uncertainty, you still kept moving; yet amidst the maelstrom, you never wavered. Why? Because of that unwavering spark of light that never dimmed, a beacon of hope that lit your way.
And today you stand on new ground, looking east towards the pending light-rise, the shadow understood, the darkest hour past, the feeling of hope rising. Today your heart can expand beyond anything you have known over the past twelve years, if you give permission for the light without connects with the light within. Today is the great day you’ll ever know. Breathe in, imbue, embody and en-Light-en. It is a new day, a new dawn, a fresh start, a new hope.
