    Time to Build Your Wings, or Trust and Fly?

    astrolBy Linda Amburgey

    With Neptune and Saturn squaring off with one another, our collective Cosmic lesson will be to integrate ordinary literal reality with the non ordinary realm of magic, faith, and mystery. In Muhammad’s words, “You must trust Allah, and tie your camel.” Sometimes we have to struggle and exert effort (Saturn) in order to get what we want, while other times it behooves us to place our trust in a higher order, knowing that everything is as it should be, and will come to fruition in its own time (Neptune). Manifesting requires both. Generally, we tend to start with our strong muscle, and because the square is a challenging aspect, you can expect the Cosmic professor to be testing and grading you on the right use of your weaker function. Do you need practice having more faith to fly, or do you need to ground, organize, and put out effort to build your wings?

    ARIES (March 21–April 19) Practical steps will help you to organize your life into the direction that your soul is longing to experience. Tiny seeds are being planted deep within your psyche, made possible by the raw soil of decomposition and loss. It may feel like a passage through the dark night of you soul, but remember, a birth will occur in time.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20) What kind of people do you want in your life? It’s time to envision your new tribe as reflected by the calling of your soul’s needs. Remember to do the hard work necessary to keep the tribe members that your soul needs, but your personality stubbornly refuses to see their value. Soul-mates help our souls to evolve, and sometimes that ain’t pretty!

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20) This is a good time to seek out mentors who are willing to seed your path with hard truths that you are unwilling to accept. Knowing limitation can actually expand your world by sharpening your instincts to follow the path you are unable to see yet. Imagine yourself in a huge maze trying to navigate the same path over and over vs. a few attempts, and then redirecting your efforts.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22) Try not to play it so safe right now. You need to bounce the taboo ball around the forbidden court in order to understand the deeper and hidden desires of your being. Rather than sitting on your temple cushion while your devotees anoint your feet, belly up to the bar with your fellow heathens, and share in the debauchery for a bit. The spiritual purpose will come to light once your hangover subsides.

    LEO (July 23–August 22) Life isn’t as fun as your playful self might prefer, but there is a deep and profound transformation occurring at the center of your soul. Darkness is only the temporary absence of light, and its emergence, like winter, is a divine part of the cycle. When light eventually emerges, you will have more of yourself to share.

    VIRGO (August 23–September 22) Externalizing and internalizing your sense of home will be much easier to bridge if you would be willing to say absolutely everything that crosses your mind. Complete transparency will allow your words to freely express what is not yet seen by your inner vision. Others will provide an illuminating holding tank simply by hearing your secrets.

    LIBRA (September 23–October 22) Work and money are the areas that should have your current focus. New streams of revenue may begin to show promise, but will require your commitment to the vision as well as your patience and strength. Cultivate your capacity to understand when to inhale and hold your breath, and when to exhale and blow like hell.

    SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) Although you may prefer to fly under the radar, your visibility is undeniable right now. Those creative projects may begin to earn you a little cash, and those starry-eyed lovers will be captivated by your mystique. The essence of your true power does not have to be hidden from the world. Let it shine.

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) Trust your intuitive instincts as if your life depends on it! You are dialed into the Cosmic flow, and even the darker images that appear in your dream body are full of potential possibilities. Paying attention to that which occurs to you in your quiet time will light the path to decisions around real estate and cash flow.

    CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) Reach out to your friends for some social hang time. You need the pleasure and release of this support as you may find the burdens of work projects frustrating and exhausting. The good medicine of time with your community may even bear the fruit of an important introduction to a special someone.

    AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Feel deeply into your secret desires to contribute something you deem valuable to the world. You are seeding the foundation that will serve as your new and improved platform, but you will also need to push your sleeves up and add sweat equity to this project. She who moves mountains starts by carrying away small stones.

    PISCES (February 19–March 20) There will be a lot of expanding and contracting for you this month. Communing with your instinctive side, and spending time in the world of nature, will gain you the confidence needed to appreciate the contracted moments, knowing they are merely helping you consolidate your life force energy. You must apply effort beyond your comfort zone to make your mark.
