Why not tell yourself a new & better story?

You’ve worked hard. But to date, your actions have not delivered the desired results. More likely than not, this is because of undesirable (i.e. outgrown) behaviours, which in turn, have been driven by undesirable (i.e. outgrown) stories about yourself to which, over time, you’ve become attached. It only makes sense that to get desired results, you’ll need to manifest different behaviour that is fuelled … Read More Why not tell yourself a new & better story?

Working with Your Lunar Nodes

The nodes are oft associated with karma and reincarnation – the South Node representing what you’ve accomplished in past lives (both good and bad) and the North Node representing what you are meant to accomplish during your present incarnation. But even if you don’t believe in karma or reincarnation, you can still benefit from working with your nodes. Consider that the South Node represents … Read More Working with Your Lunar Nodes

Lost at Sea

It’s near impossible to react calmly and sanely under such conditions and the energy on a the Eight of Hearts reflects this.

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic / Melancholic Days

In classical mythology, Mercury is the trickster god and hence like the Fool card in the tarot, has no fixed agenda. Indeed his is a spontaneous approach to life and although he rushes in where angels may fear to tread, he is usually successful.

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic/Choleric Days

Now the Moon is in Leo and this Phlegmatic/Choleric energy is characterised by the planetary cycles inherent between the sun and moon. This is because Cancer is ruled by the Moon and Leo, is ruled by the Sun. But their relationship is reversed (the Moon rules Cancer but is now in Leo and the Sun rules Leo but is in Cancer).

Today and Tomorrow lead up to the Phlegmatic new moon

All this is making way for that new moon which symbolises a time to plant seeds for the future, a gateway to the energy the energy you need to pull into your life to make it all that you’d have it be

Today is a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day – chill out, observe, deliberate

With the Sun in Cancer (cold/wet) and the Moon in Gemini (hot/wet) it’s going to be a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day. As you may recall, humoural theory is based on the ancient and medieval physiology and medicine as expounded by Empedocles, Hippocrates, and Galen – it’s all to do with the four block or ‘roots’ of the material world that manifest in certain humours … Read More Today is a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day – chill out, observe, deliberate

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic Days

But now the Phlegmatic energy is different because instead of Mars, we have Jupiter involved – and his traditional astrological job is to bring worldly wealth and priestly wisdom.

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic/Sanguine – but take heart!

In terms of the Jungian Functions, Aquarius (air) represents the thinking function and so when Cancer (feeling function) overwhelms (as it is apt to do), you can drop back, re-group, and gather much needed perspective.

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic/Melancholic

By nature, the Phlegmatic is shamefaced and sober and the Melancholic, suspicious and musing. Put the two together and there isn’t much you can do to balance out what is likely to feel like a cold shower.

Today and Tomorrow are Phlegmatic/Choleric Days

Often we experience various combinations of the four humours resulting in mixed temperaments – the more balanced between the four humours – the better and this one, although not the easiest to balance – can actually be quite beneficial.

It’s going to be a Phlegmatic Couple of days

The phlegmatic energy is, as you might expect with the Sun and Moon both in watery signs, is wet – even dreary. This is because it is connected with the Jungian Function of ‘feeling’ and that suggests not only getting bogged down in your feelings but also your inability to access the opposition Jungian Function of ‘thinking’ and hence rationalise everything away.
