Juno moves direct in Virgo today (the 2nd May). Juno is a powerful little asteroid with a strong connection to relationships, power balances and the dynamics in our interactions with others.
This forward movement marks a time to emanate the balance we have achieved within to other aspects of our lives. It is also time to ensure that all of our relationships (of all kinds) are balanced and life-giving. Of course, sometimes duty and obligation places us in relationships where we give much more, and as long as we enter such relationships with the right spirit, we can still receive positivity from these connections. If we see them as draining, negative and unpleasant then we either need to make the decision to walk away or to change our perspectives...
There is a sense that we are becoming more and more self-aware now, and, as a result, we are far more aware of what we truly want from our lives. This is why balance in relationships is so important, for balance prevents us from being pulled ‘off course’ by having our energy sapped or from being dominated by someone else (as well as a myriad of other possibilities as well).
Possibly the most important we have in life is the one with ourselves, and all too often, we can become wrapped up in powerful emotions that can drain and dis-empower us.
Someone very special sent me these words...
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself. He said, “My son, it is between two wolves...One is evil: Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is good: Joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, compassion and faith”.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied: “The one I feed”.
These words are powerful and thought-provoking. Of course, it is important to acknowledge anger, regret, sorrow etc, for acknowledging them is surrendering to the flow of life. To fight them is to anger them more, giving them more strength and power in our lives. Once we can acknowledge and surrender to them, we can let them go and be in a place of joy, love and peace. We can feed the positive by facing the ‘negative’ with strength and resolve.
Juno wants us to nurture ourselves and our relationships now to ensure that we can live in balance and harmony. The dynamics or energy flows within our Selves and between ourselves and others, will become more visible and obvious now. It is therefore up to us to choose which wolf to feed...
