We’ve had a lovely break from emotional transits for the past few months! Now they’re back again. Those with undefined Solar Plexus Centres might like to be especially gentle and nurturing of themselves just now.
The Solar Plexus Centre can be a lonely place. It’s very subjective, very personal and it can be hard to connect with others emotionally. It’s important to remember, as we move through our emotional waves, that this is a process we are doing together, even if it seems we are alone.
I had a dream a few nights ago that I was in a hospital searching for food, money and my mother. When I woke up I realised it was a re-creation of the days after my birth when I was, in the way of the 60’s, put in a crib in a nursery with all the other babies. All those children and my undefined Spleen picking up the fear of each one! Was it possible I would be reunited with the source of life – my mother? The money represents getting my needs met, probably. Ceres is transiting in Gate 45 which rules money so there’s obviously some tie in there.
It’s so crucial to honour our own emotional field. The information there is subjective, often not very logical, and highly personal. We like to think we are rational beings, but mostly none of us are. If we try to avoid tuning in because our emotions disturb our sense of control, our chosen identity, we can miss out on vital opportunities to understand our own growth pattern. In particular, Mercury and Mars are today connecting the Root to Solar Plexus, creating a highly sensitive field tripwired for rejection. If you don’t give me what I want I’m going to reject you. The Moon and Neptune just now add a swirling confusion to the mix.
While this transit lasts we’re looking for our emotional and material needs to be recognised. It’s good to do a stocktake for yourself rather than relying on others to try to figure out what you need.
Mars moves into Gate 30 tomorrow, creating a channel with the Sun in 41. This brings up our tendency to create our own internal fantasy world where our needs are met … or not, rather than clearly facing our own reality and recognising what we really want. We can daydream to our hearts content, or live in a self created world where we are victims of others failure to care. We’re only human!
What would improve your life right here and right now. How do you feel about that?
Because our emotions often signal needs that have been unmet for a very long time, we can choose to suppress them rather than face that sense of ongoing lack. There’s much pain buried there. The very idea that we can have what we want in life can begin to feel like a dream … a fantasy!
But we do have personal power, and the first step is to be aware of our emotions as they arise. If we can grieve, celebrate, love, hate, rage .. whatever is needed, and do it in a safe way, we will be clearer and more resonant with our essence. Take whatever time you need to do this, it is such a vital process. Experiment with how many small kindnessess you can bestow on yourself today. You might like to share some in the comments below so we can all enjoy sharing them with you. We all deserve our heart’s desires, and our emotions are key to achieving them. By suppressing our emotions, distracting ourselves, blaming others, we push our desires away rather than bring them closer.
With the Full Moon tomorrow, we come face to face with our own deep belief that we must get what we need from others. This creates an incredible sense of lack. When we trust and allow and open we can create for ourselves and open doorways for humanity to move into new creative possibilities. In itself this opening to our emotional fields is a creative act, perfectly in alignment with building something more sustainable and nourishing.
