Telling others what we think easily ‘catches fire’ and becomes angry (or maybe just vociferous) today, but whether words display temper or not, one thing we can be sure of, what people say/ communicate carries the essence of what they truly care about, what they honor and find sacred, and what they will fight to preserve. That tells us to take seriously the message behind the words–and to realize we are conveying the same with our own speech, topic choices, mannerisms, and ‘statements’.
The thing that will really be empowering, much more so than just speaking out, will be the facing of those areas we’ve been ignoring, in denial about, or that we see as unjust. In choosing to engage with one or more of these, we find our way to a highly effective form of personal power expression, one we could not have stumbled upon without taking up that challenging, and probably unpleasant, subject (Merc sxt Vesta and sq Mars, Sun parallel Black Moon Lilith and trine Juno)
Today’s word image is two trees, though young, that must come down. We can’t always judge the ‘life expectancy’ for another living thing–which is why it’s so important to treat everything in our sphere every day with an energy that recognizes both the sanctity of life, and the relentless temporal nature of our current reality.
