” Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Wolfgang von Goethe
When things have seemed so bad, so devastating, and it seemed we were in the deepest part of the bottom of the pit… the sun rose again, and again, and again. So it seems… it wasn’t the end as it felt. The gift of persistence kicks in and hope fuels it. It gives us a drive to move from the depths… to some other place, and we find ourselves there. And then we decide to move further… and low and behold, we are there! Persistence is guts, determination and desire to keep going REGARDLESS of anything… just keep going! Be it small and an eternity, or monumental and in a flash… don’t stop moving. You are on a path to somewhere… and something other than the present awaits you.
“Whatever your battle, it’s never easy. The monsters never just slink back into the woods with their tails between their legs. They will fight you for every breath. There is a battle in this Universe for every inch of light, and only those who persist will rise to behold the astonishing light of the sunrise.” ~Daphne Rose Kingma
The month of December is so magical! Best wishes to all my fellow Sagittarians!
Any time there is major change and upheaval, our perceptions and beliefs alter. If they don’t it can be extremely challenging to stay fixed and rigid, particularly if it is causing pain or stagnation. This is what this period is about, getting to that place of seeing that there is no where else left to go but up and we can certainly recognize that hanging on to the old or anything too serious and heavy, is not where it is at.
Sagittarius is also associated with our beliefs and belief systems, ideologies, life philosophies and understandings of life’s meanings. It assists us in seeing the larger picture, but at times it means we create large expectations and feel challenged by the day to day mundane aspects of life that don’t feel very expansive and it can cause us to second guess our direction. This is where trust comes in handy, embracing the Mystery, and keeping the energy high and this week we have help with that.
With this potent Sagittarius energy, we can find ways to transcend these mundane details of day-to-day life and nurture our faith, hope, and vision. Uranus trine the lunation allows us to detach ourselves just enough to move forward with less fear.
It is when we find a comfortable landing place, that we often feel ready to move on from the challenges or disappointments of the past. This comfort usually comes when we find positive thoughts and philosophies about what has occurred. which means we have found the message in the situation and the wisdom to why it even had to happen.
This is a good time to just allow release from the heaviness and all the processing and to locate and empower beliefs that are not just sugar coating what our challenges are or creating a facade to hide what we don’t want to see — it is about finding a much deeper belief based on life experience, wisdom and the courage to be co-creative with life, on the highest of levels. This then becomes a knowing, beyond just believing.
This New Moon should provide a new starting point for those who wish to lighten up and see life through a more positive lens.”
