A fiery Grand Trine formed by a Moon-Uranus conjunction in Aries, the North Node in Leo, and Saturn in Sagittarius has been coaxing us to take action of late. Today that trine became a kite, thanks to a Sun-Mercury conjunction opposing one point of the trine (Saturn) and sextiling the remaining two (Moon-Uranus and The North Node). Perhaps you felt a dynamic shift?
A kite is meant to fly, to move, to go places, to soar, to be a thing that inspires, but to get off the ground it requires an intact spine. This kite’s spine is the Sun-Mercury opposition to Saturn. The issue is tension between communication and belief.
How do we deliver difficult news when we feel conflicted? How can we muster the courage to have uncomfortable conversations when we’d prefer to hide or escape? How can we put a positive spin on a challenging situation when we’re afraid? What kind of bridge can we build to keep lines of communication open and honest? These are a few of the questions that are up for us to explore today.
Being true to our word will ensure the spine of the kite has integrity. It’s ability to get off the ground depends on it. In some ways, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”
The body of this kite wants to create something that embraces freedom and independence and allows us to shine. Old habits are sure to be shaken up in the process, emotions may be volatile, angry, defensive, and our sense of security may initially feel threatened as we recalibrate.
We could, of course, flat out refuse to engage and stay hobbled on the ground cringing under that great wide expanse of possibility beckoning above. Such is the fear of flying.
Pray for an uplifting breeze, gird yourself for a change of scenery, and dare to take flight!
