THE WOMAN OF SAMARIA COMES TO DRAW WATER FROM JACOB’S WELL ~~7th Degree of Taurus
Our cycle for this moon phase starts out with Venus squaring Saturn to provide the ethics in our current situation and the Moon conjuncting the Sun to add to clearer awareness. Doing our chores can add to success. Socially we have been quite active as of late and it is time to look at how our labors have fared. For instance, are we drawing deep enough from our own well and the well that life presents? Take a look around you and try to have an objective awareness of how this all fits together. What is coming is the position we have created for ourselves through the laws of attraction. By helping others and tapping in and tuning in we can progress as good influences and alleviate feelings of lack. Ravi Zacharias wrote in, Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message, “The Samaritan woman grasped what He said with fervor that came from an awareness of her real need. The transaction was fascinating. She has come with a bucket. He sent her back with a spring of living water. She had come as a reject. He sent her back being accepted by God Himself. She came wounded. He sent her back whole. She came laden with questions. He sent her back as a source for answers. She came living a life of quiet desperation. She ran back overflowing with hope. The disciples missed it all. It was lunchtime for them.”

OBEYING THEIR CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS ~~21st Degree of Scorpio
Our cycle peaks with an indecisive tone as the Full Moon opposes the sun yet aspects Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to goad us into wanting to do something to change our circumstances. Remember the position you made for yourself at the New Moon and know that it is now manifesting. How you continue from here will determine how you wane in the next two weeks before the next cycle. Check to make sure you are wielding your authority in a wise manner. Are you domineering? Are you reliable? Are you alienating others? Any lessons that you have chosen not to learn will be returning. Use your emotions as your signal of how you are behaving. Ogden Nash, an American Poet, said, “There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all.”
This week we experience a full Moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn. Also Mercury moved into Cancer and Venus is changing signs into Gemini. This will change the tone of communication and attraction. Follow-through will be low and people seem to be unavailable. It feels like wishes won’t come true. Cycles started two weeks ago at the new moon have reached their fullest. Now they will begin to deteriorate and decline in a very natural way. Avoid premature actions, confrontations and/or dawdling. Simplify. When faced with a down trend it is best to take the tone down to the simplest of simple and limit anything frivolous. This will aid in the development of good character.

Focus on being constant. It is a very good time to be generous and review things real well. The issue is about strategy. First you got to shut everything down, rule out influences and push out what you don’t want. Then you’ll want to tell everybody else about what you are thinking. You’ll have a confident edge, expressive emotions and a live audience. So then why do you feel inhibited in some ways? Don’t worry about it. Concentrate daily on what is needed from you. You are headed for a successful future by being someones beneficiary. Jeff Oseroff once said, “Never buy a car without having a mechanic look at it. When a car’s put up on a lift, that’s when you see all those things that you can’t see from the outside.”

Focus on group gatherings. There is something nagging at you that makes you feel like you must do something unplanned. You feel hesitant, but this is a larger goal than just you. No matter what kind of welcome, you will still feel empowered towards unity. Focus on the source of a problem that may arise. The issue is about manifestation? What are your methods? You push out anything you don’t want in your space. You stand tall for the truths that you hold dear. There is love and creativity in your heart. Let your inner parent tap into that and coax your inner child. Receptiveness will lead you to a very keen awareness. Tune in. Seneca once said, “True wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in molding our conduct according to her laws and model.”

Focus on encouragement. You have created a situation in which your responses are dependent on others. Your life has become theirs. The issue has to do with not making an effort. You may feel as if nobody supports what you represent, so you allow others to influence you. That would be fine, except that this leads to a deteriorating trust in yourself. This week will be spent on restoring that trust and gaining insight. You have a decision to make about what direction is healthier for you. Do your research, listen and move beyond your indecision into your true essence. Dr. Joyce Brothers once said, “Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.”

Do not focus on a hopeless cause. Move on with your life and pour love into what you do. The issue has to do with restoring your energy reserves. You are impatient. It takes time for your plans to manifest. Its like beading: the process may be slow but the end result is a work of art. Be active with your generosity. Strive for humanitarianism and modesty. There is an old Hausa proverb that says, “Accomplishment of purpose is better than making a profit.”

Focus on serendipity. Everybody involved is in agreement. Everything is crystal clear and favorable. The issue has to do with inspired autonomy. Despite the fact that you are unable to spring forward in any foolish manner you still get to relax into what is. What will be will be and you have an extra amount of love around you and in you. It feels yucky to be held back from fully expressing it, but there is too much to do. When faced with intensity this week decipher your next move. Being overloaded and handling it gracefully can be quite character building. E. M. Forester once said, “Life is indeed dangerous, but not in the way morality would have us believe. It is indeed unmanageable, but the essence of it is not a battle. It is unmanageable because it is a romance, and its essence is romantic beauty.”
