Light and Dark Need Each Other

The Astrology

  • The New Crescent Moon is in Mars-managed Scorpio for the next two days.
  • The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in Venus-managed Libra continue to prompt inquiries into what is needed or wanted in all types of relationships.
  • Mars is finishing its transit of Mercury-managed earthy Virgo.
  • Jupiter in Sagittarius spreads hope.
  • Saturn in rocky Capricorn draws attention to the foundations and structures of what is building.

The Vibe is YIN YANG

Yin Yang

The concepts of dualism, of opposing contrary forces, as well as that of complimentary energy and interdependence are contained in the yin and yang symbol. It reminds us that neither light nor dark can exist without its opposite. Less obvious, but equally important in this symbol, is the message that in our universe, things are constantly seeking new balance. The planets in light and airy Libra and those in earthy Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus clearly show us that strife can coexist with harmony, anger with peace, sadness with joy, lies with truth.

From the Tao Te Ching

When people see things as beautiful,
ugliness is created.
When people see things as good,
evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.

Attract What You Want on Purpose

The Astrology

Venus always attracts relationships and personal resources and those things manifest according to the sign Venus is in. When it was in Virgo, too much thinking about what is wanted was possible and idealism could get in the way of getting to what was truly wanted. In addition, the natural desire to share what is abundant could be either overdone or hindered, depending on personal attitudes. Attitudes toward service to others, for example, could make it easy for others to take advantage of you in response to your generosity.

Now that Venus is in Libra, expect to see some new beginnings. Positive outcomes are favored, meaning that what is desired is more apt to manifest if you don’t get in your own way. Venus in Libra emphasizes putting strong focus on attracting what is wanted. There is a caveat here. The Universe and the Law of Attraction don’t discriminate between good and bad, right or wrong. Those are judgments people make. The Universe responds only to strong desire and what is focused on is what will be realized/received.

Yesterday’s post goes into more depth on this topic and I give an overview of the Libra month ahead. There’s also a challenge at the end of that post that encourages you to show yourself that you attract what you think about.
