A relationship is not a test. We make ourselves so miserable trying to "succeed" at relationships, rather than viewing them as simply one way among many to support ourselves and others on our separate journeys toward happiness. There's a famous quote by Eckhart Tolle that I've always disagreed with, in which he says, "If I accept the fact that my relationships are here to make me conscious instead of happy, then my relationships become a wonderful self-mastery tool." The assumption is that there is something greater than being happy — some prize or rank achieved through "self-mastery" or "consciousness" — but there isn't. Self-mastery is only meaningful as a tool to help you be happy, and you have to be very careful about being proud of "working on yourself" in ways that actually make you feel horrible. This applies to relationships. If your partner is a mess, can't keep a job, has no spirituality, never goes to yoga, but makes you feel seen, supported, and safe, you might be in the right relationship. If your partner is "woke" as all hell but you hate yourself when you're with him, you're probably in the wrong relationship. When people talk to me about their partners, the first question I have is, "How do you feel about yourself when you're with this person?" Society has such devious ways of convincing us that our worth comes from being in relationships others approve of, and even the most bohemian people can start acting like suburban Republicans as soon as they adopt the construct of being coupled. So you have to remind yourself that your value does not come from being in a relationship. Your value comes from your goodness, which you can develop with or without a partner. Living well is difficult enough. Stop giving yourself such a hard time about your love life too.
Sun Transit in Scorpio 🌞♏️ on 23 October. When the Sun is in Scorpio🦂✨, activity and energy are directed towards exploring the world around us, discovering its secrets. The strength 💪😎 of the personality lies in ability to transform, find new unknown features in oneself. At the same time, selfish impulses can be quite tangible - yes, Sun transit through Scorpio sign reveals such useful qualities as purposefulness, vitality but oftentimes it happens through exploitation of other people's resources. Overmore, we may notice in ourselves and others such traits as sensitivity, suspicion, cruelty, despotism, secrecy, and a desire to control and suppress people.
Inclination towards disputes increases, in connection with which, more mistakes can be made.
However the period of Sun in Scorpio transit may appear to be auspicious for people dealing with large-scale financing 💵💶💷💰as well as for those involved in matters related to inheritance. Also this can be quite efficacious time for surgeons, psychiatrists, doctors 👩⚕️👨⚕️, healers - as people become more receptive to extrasensory effects. These days may bring luck and success those who is engaged in secret activity, working in investigation bodies🕵️, state security, counterintelligence agencies, or is involved in research work👩🔬. At this time, all secret will come to the light.
To sum it up, besides some negative influence of this period we may feel, it’s important not to make unnecessary mess but to control our selfish impulses and desires in order to create a positive atmosphere and have healthy relationships with the people around us as well to bear in mind the common known truth “my tongue runs away with me”🤓👆 which is dictated by this astro period💫✨#follow#astrology#sun#transit#scorpio#strength#vitality#will#change#transformation#exploration#purpose#exploitation#people#resources#sensitivity#secret#control#auspicious#finance#productive#effective#time#medicine#doctor#healing#luck#success#investigation#body
I’ve been exploring for a while now -
what does it mean
to reconcile my “false past”?
false being that which looked one way
on the surface
but felt an entirely different way
the irony of my childhood
is it looked pretty perfect..
but now, as a woman,
I realize I’m here to heal, & help others heal
all that was never spoken or seen
but which we swallowed without awareness
& let formulate the very relationship
we cultivate with ourselves,
our lives, & the brilliance that we are..
I could feel the pain
of my great grandmother
& many others
leaking silently through the cracks of my childhood
& now I see straight to the essence
of the strength & courage of my parents
through being in deep contact
with what was always beneath the words & surface
- with the pain, the vulnerability, the resiliency -
with what is within me
that I can trace all the way back..
it’s part of my purpose
to help people see
there is no such thing as “too sensitive”,
for sensitivity is the window
into seeing exactly what’s calling out
to be healed
from behind the veils..
the moment we turn toward the wisdom of our sensation
& let it speak from the emptiness of what we thought was solid
is the moment all that pain wraps into smoke
& gives birth
to a form of life with depth,
to a way forward that’s entirely
written by me
🙏🏼 thank you @natureismymedicina for sharing the notion of “false past” with me ♥️ #sisterhood •
