Faith and Patience

In the wake of the Full Super Moon which threw us back upon ourselves and highlighted the need for self-reliance above all else, we may find ourselves eager to take the reins and act but uncertain quite what it is we’re supposed to do next! This is an uncomfortable place to be, because we have a sense of urgency without a plan of action to back it up. We may jump before we’re ready, act on impulse then discover it was the wrong one, or just give up and think no matter what we know we could do, we’ll never get it together so what’s the point in even thinking about it any longer?

In a word, the issue today is one of patience, or rather, lack of it! Even giving up can be a symptom of impatience, revealing our unwillingness to stay hopeful for longer and continue with one small step after another towards our desired goal. The vision of what we want to achieve or manifest in our life may be so clear that the prospect of not having it right now can cause us to jump to ridiculously rash conclusions that it’s just a pipe-dream, an impossible fantasy rather than a possible reality. We may find the waiting intolerable so we ease the pressure by deciding it would never happen anyway, closing down any possibility for life to prove us wrong.

Looking at the charts for today I can’t help thinking it would be a great shame if we gave up now. Just as it would be if we acted now without having thought things through. The cosmos speaks of everything finding its right place, gently slotting into the space it should occupy for life to unfold as it must. We can’t hurry this process. It’s way bigger than any of us. In fact it’s bigger than all of us put together! So the best thing we can do is stand back, give it time and continue to trust. In the background, of course, we can continue to make plans, consider our options, ‘gird our loins’ or whatever it’s going to take for us to act when the time comes. This isn’t wasted time, it’s a valuable space in which we can settle, listen, consider, day-dream and plan our way forward. And it’s fine to act now if we’re clear, calm and collected. But if action comes from impatience, a sense of anxious urgency or a despairing need for something, ANYTHING, to happen, then we may end up regretting what we’ve done in the not too distant future.

In two days’ time Mercury stations retrograde beginning a three week period during which we can test out some of our notions and adjust them as necessary. In the meantime considered planning is far better aspected than rash action, and patience recommended rather than urgency. All things will happen in their own time, not ours. And no matter how we’re feeling or thinking right now, that time will come soon enough…

Have a good day everyone.
