21 NOVEMBER 2016, LEO
The third quarter moon’s in Leo and the theme of honouring others is strong – at celebrations or send-offs, or anything that feels special or significant, even simply offering a cup of tea or sending a thoughtful message. If feeling not included, respected or prioritised there’s a chance that hurt feelings could end up deciding future relationship or love directions. The question is whether to let intense feelings take over and be the deciders or whether to dig deeper to see what’s beneath apparently disrespectful behaviours or blind points of view. The asteroid goddesses Lilith, Hygeia and Astraea are in Scorpio helping both men and women access their feminine sides. People might put on a show of not feeling sensitive, dishonoured or hurt, but if we are able to spare a thought for the feminine within – our soft, tender places that get bumped about in the rough and tumble of human relating – and courageously face even the most hardened ‘I don’t care’ parts of ourselves and others, we might have some surprising insights that help us make decisions we feel at ease with. Some stuck or repeatedly symptomatic situations might benefit from people stating their preferences, setting boundaries and coming up with agreements, to be assessed and modified once tested against reality in the days that follow until everyone feels safe, even if we would’ve preferred to be spontaneous and automatic. There could be sulking or anger to work through, but as long as you keep digging deep to find the truth of how you really feel and the courage to make choices based on your heart-centred truth, this becomes a template for your deepening success.
