Daily Divination 8-1-11 Neptune/Mercury Joy and Enthusiasm—Can You Feel It? Now’s the time to Channel Inspirational Energy; I-CHING Kua 16 with Astrology and Tarot Archetypes

Enthused, zapped, lit up, electrified and turned on with energy—can you feel it? Today take that bridge to the world of Joy and Enthusiasm! There’s nothing like it under the Sun and speaking of Sun, let’s add on Optimism and Celebration! Enthusiasm has nothing to do with ego; rather, its  in connection to The Divine that we experience it– and in doing so, we  joyously merge with Life and with others. Something is shifting—perhaps it is because July is now behind us and we have the optimism of the new month ahead; but something has definitely shifted.

Astrologically, we have Mercury in nearly an exact opposition to Neptune which can illuminate the ever-present grace of The Divine; the ocean (Neptune) of inspiration is communicating (Mercury) with us!

The image for the I-CHING Kua 16/Enthusiasm is a perfect representation of a Cosmic Neptune and Communicative Mercury.

The keyword for today is Enthusiasm and you will do well to create it wherever and however you can and share it with others—it should be easy.

Today is a great day to inspire others and even the most daunting goals can be achieved easily with a little Enthusiasm; that grace is easily obtainable today.

Take time to celebrate today; never underestimate the power of shared Enthusiasm. The increase in confidence that Enthusiasm provides today will help you successfully achieve any endeavor.

Enthusiasm is generated by inspiration and the planet of inspiration (Neptune) is making a direct hit to the planet of communication (Mercury). But now I’m repeating myself. Mercury and Neptune will oppose until August 8th. It’s a great day; a great week (just like it is any time but especially NOW) to be touched by the illuminating creative power of Enthusiasm!

Cosmic Communiqué 6-22-11 Finding and Communicating Joy in Your Life! Kua 58, Gemini, Taurus, The Sun, The Star, The Magician

Today’s Cosmic Communiqué advises reflection upon the true source of joy.

 The main difference between joy and pleasure is that joy comes from within, while pleasure comes from the outside world—mental and physical sense gratification.

We are able to maintain joy when we cultivate affection, consideration, respect and kindness toward others.  That, however, begins within the self first and then is consequently shared with others–joy shared is joy doubled!

Those who can reach a state of bliss in life do so, in my humble opinion, by understanding their own nature and the nature of reality Itself. And part of that includes understanding the past, incorporating it or integrating it so that it can be released (healing).  In that way,  freedom can be achieved. And that freedom creates an inner state which enables us to share this state of inner strength and joy with others.

When anxiety and discord are banished as a result of healing and integration of the past, what is realized is the true nature—joy—is found to be the core of one’s own being.  As this happens, Life is experienced differently– the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Taurus and Gemini are the correlating astrological archetypes. And The Star, The Sun, and The Magician archetypes of Tarot are the corresponding archetypes of today’s I CHING definition, Kua 58.

[Entering any of the following search terms–Taurus, Gemini, The Star, The Sun and The Magician—in the search window above/right will yield further information on these archetypes.]

Essentially, the Taurus archetype represents peace and tranquility and Gemini is about communicating—so putting a few keywords together, we could easily see the correlation to the I CHING Kua 58 of the day. This is in basic terms to “communicate peace and tranquility to others”. This is exactly the meaning of today’s message.

Star, Sun and Magic (Magician) are words with meanings which speak for themselves as far as archetypal symbols.

It’s those clichés that we hear all the time—release guilt about the past, forgive yourself and others, love yourself and be happy. I used to become borderline angry when I’d hear this kind of talk because I didn’t understand what steps were necessary. Is it simply as easy as changing your mind? This simmered for a long time while I searched for deeper understanding and actual steps to take—exactly how?  Reciting positive affirmations alone seemed like putting a Band-Aid over the question.  I needed to go deeper, as most people find that they do.

For me it involved learning about the mind, how it works exactly, going deeper into the study of the soul and the nature of reality. Buddhism and Hinduism studies (to name a few) have assisted me a good deal and then soul astrology provided some practical stepping-stones that were helpful.  And then there was a personal investigation of regression, integration,  and withdrawing projections–these types of inquiries.   Jungian Psychology and all the rest have provided valuable personal insight. These are topics that I write about often here in the blog and my weekly newsletters. Is this “the way” for everyone? I don’t know, but it’s been helpful for my spiritual alignment is all that I can share.  I don’t ‘do’ dogma very well–I study on my own, then observe and correlate with my life using discernment and intuition–that’s my way.

And what I hope is that my psychic, intuitive and channeling work with others aids them in receiving the right insight in the right timing for the next step on their path–whatever that might be. That is my intention in my work anyway.

One insight received at the right time can swing open the doors to the soul and reunion with or realignment with the Higher Self.  And that reunion, my friends, is what true joy has got to be about! How could it be otherwise?

It is only through insight that we can heal and transform and find true joy!
