Something about not holding back…


Wednesday 6 November

Moon in Sagittarius

I’ve had a song whizzing around in my head all morning. I say all morning, but, given that it’s just after 7am, I really mean an hour or so. That’s not unusual in itself- I often wake up with a song in my brain- often times it sets the mood for the day.

This mornings is James Blunt’s Bonfire Heart. I wish that I had it in my brain when I was writing about Venus in Sagittarius- it’s got that sparky, optimistic, everything is going to be ok vibe about it, that I associate with Sagittarius. It doesn’t really fit todays aspects though.

Sure the Moon is in Sagittarius- that time of the month where everyone is entitled to your opinion and rants are not only ok, but even a little de rigeur. It is, however, those few days each month where it’s imperative to open your mind and see all possibilities, all points of view…even if they don’t match up with yours. You see, as flexible as Sagittarius is, it can also be, dare I say it, more than a little preachy at times. But that’s ok. In fact it’s one of the things I love most about Sagittarius. A Sagittarian opinion is usually one that’s backed up with wide reading and education- and that makes a very big difference.

Anyways, Bonfire Heart isn’t out of place on a Sagittarius Moon day.

Later today, however, the Sun meets up with Saturn. The song I woke with doesn’t match the mood of this one…or does it? Saturn-Sun can be a time of caution, of waiting and seeing, of restraint. It can be a time where you hold onto old patterns and deeply ingrained fears that prevent you from moving forward. On the flip side, you can use this as motivation for growth.

What do I mean by this? Pretty well if you can move past the paranoia and the blah of standing still, this aspect can provide the self-discipline and strength to move forward.

So your choice today is to hold back…or not to hold back. Sounds simple when you put it like that. It also sounds very much like the ad for the latest Jeeps- Don’t Hold Back- which is probably where my Sagittarian inspired song has come from…
