“A farmhouse between high mountains. A yard about the house entered by a white gate.” — The 360 Symbolic Degrees
Self acceptance – flaws and all – allows you to appreciate the flaws of others. Now you feel more safe, allowing you to express your passion.
But there’s no rush, even if it feels like time is ticking away.
Implosion, unfocused craze. Breakthrough, but also shocking treachery. People may be distant or insecure, going through their own chaotic transformation. Pull back to get closer. Reorganize. Don’t gloss over health issues. A world leader is about to fall.
It’s time for a fresh start in love after war.
The hour is ripe. Consummation of lifetimes for self-mastery. From wild horse to ego controlled. Hard-working, productive. Rustic. Harsh, clumsy, but honest, devoted, soft heart, warm feelings. Intense, romantic hunter, repelled by the dull, unfeeling world of money, business, refinement. Religious conversion. Anarchism but after fighting for gain in world of illusion, realizes futility of it all, retires to simple life of non-resistance, solace. Healing power, alternative health. Color: White.
