Theme: Potential flow

Three major planets are not comfortable in their current astrological signs. So extra patience and perseverance is required. However, these planets (Sun, Moon, and Mars) are working very well together today. Spiritual pursuits, concerns for comfort and security, and striving for position can be achieved without conflict. Your flexibility is tested for the next few days due to unpredictability in close relationships. The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.~Albert Einstein

Today the Moon is Void of Course from 1.18 am EST USA until 1.49 am. If you’re in another country check what that means for you time-wise. It’s best to avoid making major decisions or signing contracts during this time.

Theme: Renewed enthusiasm

Today you can have cause for optimism as the Moon aligns with the planet of good fortune, Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius. There is a sense of expansiveness, enjoyment and adventure. On another front, for the next week and half, there is a process of dissolving of ego boundaries that deepens awareness of something larger than yourself, and your inseparability from the universe around you. The beauty of the earth finds reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.~Rachel Carson.

Theme: Seeking, Building and Praying

Most of the Planets and other stellar energies are in the 3 signs of Sagittarius, Capricorn and Pieces. There is curiosity about the big questions in life, a need to serve, and overcome our ego nature. Yet, we are also grounded in wanting to create new structures in the world, and to improve our social standing. Today good fortune is linked to spiritual undertakings, so be sure to have some quiet, reflective time. Say not ‘I have found the truth,‘ but rather, ‘I have found a truth’-Kahlil Gibran

Theme: The different dimensions of relating

Today the planetary energies are focused on relationships. There is an opportunity for resolving past karmic patterns with individuals that allows new ways of relating. There are also opportunities with others for sharing beneficial ideas. With the Moon in Scorpio there is an added depth and intensity to how people express themselves: this can sometimes be challenging. Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.~Thomas Merton

The Futility Of Habits

The following is an excerpt from a teaching by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo called “The Bodhisattva Ideal”

If you create the habit of compassion and generosity, then that habitual tendency will stay with you, and in some future life it will affect your rebirth and your circumstances.  There will be much more joy and happiness.  When one engages truly on the Bodhisattva’s path, one goes beyond that superficial kind of view.  One goes much deeper into the understanding of how to live one’s life. And so one’s morals and ethics and values are developed because of this Bodhisattva ideal.  The Bodhisattva understands these teachings that the Buddha has taught— that all things are impermanent.  The Bodhisattva understands that whatever material gain we can amass during the course of this life can only bring temporary happiness and, ultimately, if that’s all we do, it will bring suffering.  So this is what the Bodhisattva studies and the Bodhisattva comes to the point of realizing that.

Then there is another kind of amazing logic that enters into the mind of the Bodhisattva. It becomes part of our life experience, and becomes the most profound law that we can live by.  And that is this:  Think about this body of ours, this body that we cherish and hold onto. We decorate it, we love it, we keep it safe. We make sure that it’s happy.  We revolve much of our time and our effort around this body and its upkeep.  And then we think about this ego, this ego that is our mind and our consciousness and our awareness of self. But even beyond that, the extended effort to maintain ego is part of the egocentric structure that we call “me.”  We have developed our own habits and patterns over time in order to avoid the chaos of the idea that what we are as egocentric beings might change in any way, shape, manner or form.  We put amazing effort into perpetuating ourselves and our needs, into reacting with either hope or fear towards every other thing, so that we can determine whether we want it or whether we want to move away from it.  That kind of self-cherishing requires us to think of our own well-being and to look at other sentient beings as objects from which we can get what we need, like love, approval, romance, money, power, anything.

The Bodhisattva realizes these kinds of ideas and habits are futile. And this is the reason why:  During the course of our lives we spend much of our time amassing, structuring, creating support for ourselves, for our ego, because we fear annihilation. Once you have the belief in self-nature as being inherently real, that self has to be supported and continued, because the idea is that if self-nature were to dismantle or not be the same, that somehow chaos would result.  We have no knowledge of our true nature as being the primordial Buddha ground of being, no knowledge of that primordial wisdom nature that is our true nature.  We rely on this idea that self-nature must be perpetuated.

02/21/2019 Thursday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: The power of relationships

All forms of relationships are feeling the pincer movement! Which means right now there is lots of pressure being brought to bear on your connections with others. Sometimes this will feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place. It’s an opportunity to deepen commitments, be true to your word and explore the source of deeply ingrained habits so you can make space for change. As Carol Burnett said, Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.

Today the Moon is Void of Course from 8.53 pm EST USA the day before until 9.18 am. If you’re in another country check what that means for you time-wise. It’s best to avoid making major decisions or signing contracts during this time.

Today has potential for great imagination and subtle understanding…or miscommunications and self delusion! Others in your life can help you stay grounded, or you can serve a friend this way. There is a restless search for wisdom today. Use this energy towards improving the world around you. Unpredictable disruptions will be less frequent now. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.~Harriet Tubman
