Creativity: The Joy of Release and Transformation

moving butterfliesThe inevitable release from elementary school, university, graduate school, one career to a new career, one relationship to another, or choosing no relationship, and retiring from career to enter retirement all have a particular commonality. That commonality is the building upon what one has already accomplished.

Certainly, particularly when one is at one of these particular stages of life, no matter, we are all like the “ninja cat”, we’ll get creative, hopefully!!!!

Our situation will create the need for considerable increase in persistence and tenacity within the situation we’ve placed ourselves!

The issue throughout our lives is the resistance to change that we all face.  We all may want release from a particular circumstance, but we don’t know what it is or how it is that we can accomplish what it is that we think we want. This is where ingenuity enters our lives.

We’ll start testing various approaches:

Not focused or concentrated on which outcome we want, and eyes, not wide open, we reach out, and whatever comes to us we might think that, that is the only possibility!

One thing for sure is that the inevitable transformations, still have great and many potentials that we may not be aware of. This is where it is important to stay open to many possible potentials ahead of us, continuing to reach and test, hopefully with eyes wide open!!!

Remember, what we are concentrating on is regeneration, adding upon our tools and skills of life to make our lives more interesting, fulfilling and meaningful!!!

We’re all observing the possibilities and potentials of the transitions we find ourselves engaged in.  As we are engaging in various activities and experiences, we’re testing our own perceptions about our potential and possibilities to transition to, testing our capacity for personal persistence and tenacity.

What we are all called to do during the transformation of a stage of life to another stage of life is to give it a new form. Therein will rest our new purpose and meaning, how is it that we will fit into a particular scenario, and do we really want to fit in to it!!!!

Certainly transformation entails considerable difficulty, whether it be studying a particular discipline of fitting in, to become better at what it is that one wants to embrace, or cutting back and being more practical in one’s life in order that one can get more out of one’s life than one is presently experiencing. Certainly one will have a tendency to follow one’s propensities.

We come to see within ourselves a sense of a particular joy in this difficulty in creating the need for considerable increase in persistence and tenacity in what it is that we are engaged with, that will ultimately be the tool of our personal and situational tansformaton.

Chinese New Year: February 19, 2015: Year of Sheep Aries: Identity Yoga with Libra Relationships

chinese_zodiacClick on this chart to see the year of your own birthdate and the sign of the year you were born.

The year of the Sheep, or mountain sheep, is symbolic of the Ram, the first house of identity in the age-old natural constellations of the Zodiac. The age of the Ram in sculpted structures throughout Egypt and various archeological sights can be quite informative. Just by viewing its nature in it’s climb up rocky mountain heights to the top gives you a sense of your own inner identity in several particular areas of your chart in comparison to others’ charts with whom you have relationships (Libra is the polarity sign, or yoga of relationships ruled by Venus).

If you have ever hiked up various mountainous terrains, you have seen that there are paths created by various animals. Not only the sheep or Aries the Ram, but other creatures, utilize these age-old worn paths of security that wind zig-zag up the slope of the mountain, just as a snow skier glides on the snow in a zig-zag fashion to the bottom in a rhythmic, systematic and enjoyable journey down a slope.

Aries, the Ram or the sheep, rules the head. You have heard the question, “Why doesn’t that person use their head?” Interestingly, the nature of the Ram is to use its head to “butt” its opponent. The smart person utilizes intelligence as a defense.

Aries is a fire sign (and is shared also with the other two fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius) ruled by Mars, the warrior. The way one expresses one’s defense will be indicated in one’s chart by what sign is in the natural place of Aries, the first house of identity. The second place will be which house in one’s astro chart one’s actual Aries sign is located. The third indicator of Mars expression will be where Mars is located in ones astro chart and where one’s Scorpio (also ruled by Mars and Pluto are located). These will all also affect one’s response of where one’s other two fire signs are located.

Therefore, we can adapt this “technique” this year to utilize a rhythmic and systematic climb to the heights of our individual personal inner call that will emerge from the universe as April, the true new year of the zodiac, approaches. We can take note, that Capricorn, the goat, also a mountain-climber, in all of us, is indicated by where it is located in one’s personal astrology chart. The natural cosmic zodiac of the constellations of Capricorn has been the natural 10th house of the zodiacal constellations of the zodiac. Each of us has a particular sign for the time of our birth, marriage, residence, employment date, etc. within this natural cosmic area.

If you have Capricorn on the rising of your chart, it will be in the natural sign of Aries, so you are keen on rising to the top with persistent effort. Capricorn is also the sign of the “parent”, therefore one will have a tendency to be the parent in relationships.

So, you will have your own individual house in the natural 10th house which will confirm for you, and assist you with greater understanding about your particular career, what one makes of oneself. You will have The house of Capricorn (sign of the goat), somewhere in your particular chart, which will give you additional information about how and what it is that you do to earn your particular place in the world.

Uranus is moving  through Aries, therefore you have probably experienced “unexpected ” changes in your relationships this past year. This has an impact on one’s identity, for one’s relationships have a great deal to do with how it is that one expresses oneself.

Wherever the above-mentioned placements are within your chart will be the area wherein you will experience the most change for the next three years.
