Perhaps embodying equality during this Libra time is furthered through investigation of the lines. What divides Leo pride from arrogance, Pisces empathy from martyrdom, Aires protection from aggression, Cancer nurturing from smothering, Virgo independence from seclusion? Might we find Spirit dancing there in the Veil where light IS shadow?
Perhaps the sleeper will awaken to find reality is, in fact, the dream and that the teachings of the nightmare are so much lighter than they seemed. Why hide inside and curse the rainy weather? The heart is truly lighter than the feather when the alchemist knows the poison is the medicine and the lead is the gold.
When the moon reached First Quarter in Sagittarius a week later, I was offered a part-time, work-from-home opportunity by my boss who said the company did not want to lose what it had "invested" in me. Words describing me as a resource shouldn't be enough to keep me around, but I had to honor the possibility that I had manifested a comfortable compromise that would keep me fed while I build my astrology business. This was the week of Conflict and Resolution, after all.
The Illumination period began with the Pisces Full Moon two days before Equinox and my PayPal account reflected my most successful work week as an astrolonaut to date. I also received this moving message from a new client:
"I listened to the recording last night, WOW. Thank you so much. Your words touched my heart deeply in a way that was so unexpected and beautifully revealed secrets within me that were kept hidden from my own conscious mind. It is astonishing that someone I have never even met could see so clearly into my being, my soul path. I wept, realizing truths and unveiling something that has been a great mystery in my life for some time. Thank you again and again."
It became clear I had created my compromise only to destroy it. I was more ready than ever to walk away from everything including the mortgage I've been paying for 75 months in pursuit of my right livelihood. An Equinox weekend spent in meditation and conversation with fellow seekers and healers seemed to confirm this again and again. Pisces Spirt and Vision strongly swimming.
But then I got home and astro business slowed. I reminded myself not to rush; to stay grounded. Perhaps imagining Integration through the upcoming Cancer Third Quarter urged me to honor the fine line between the All and the Nothing as a beautiful place for Spirit to show. The corporate contract I'm again considering clearly states I can walk at any time, does it not? Why be a homeless hero when I might just find my wings in the balance of the thin-lined Veil in between?
So here I sit typing though circles of confusion and laughing with the lingering lessons. Just what will this week of Virgo Integration reveal? And what has this month's Moon game given to those of you readers who choose to play? One week left before the next cycle begins. The thin line between Virgo and Libra, the sixth and the seventh, welcomes us warmly. We find the Virgo lessons are steadily steering us towards healthy Libra intentions. And isn't that just how it should be?
I hope to meet you there in the Veil.
In the meantime, I'll see you in Space.
Half-Corporately Yours (for now),
