Deep-sea divers. ~~sabian symbol (7º Scorpio)
Lets talk about being busy. You are willing to dive deep and work hard for what you want. This week, however, you have a slight (and I mean slight) lack of follow-through. It has to do with not knowing which idea to implement. You’re not sure what you are doing. You have so many ideas. The wonders that you find will cause you to yearn for someone to share it with. Stay in the moment and deal only with the present situation. This is not a good week to be better than anyone. You have not been challenged, but with Mercury retrograde in Cancer you are bound to be opposed by someone. Choose to keep a certain amount of detachment from those you speak the truth with so that you will be able to move things in a productive direction. Sometimes when we are too familiar it is hard to get anything done. You are only going to reach your goal in a step by step process. Have you ever seen anyone run fast while they were emerged in water? Rumi wrote,
“The Diver’s Clothes Lying Empty
You’re sitting here with us, but you’re also out walking
in a field at dawn. You are yourself
the animal we hunt when you come with us on the hunt.
You’re in your body like a plant is solid in the ground,
yet you’re wind. You’re the diver’s clothes
lying empty on the beach. You’re the fish.
In the ocean are many bright strands
and many dark strands like veins that are seen
when a wing is lifted up.
Your hidden self is blood in those, those veins
that are lute strings that make ocean music,
not the sad edge of surf, but the sound of no shore.”
