THE ZODIACAL PROGRESSION

“The reason most people fail instead of succeed is they trade what they want most for what they want at the moment.” Napoleon Bonaparte

 Isn’t it interesting that we need to know who we are (Aries) and what we have (Taurus) before we can reach out to communicate with an other. The zodiac wheel is a progression whether viewing it through traditional astrology or esoteric. In esoteric astrology Aries is the “I Am!” of existence, the recognition that even though I still remember I am of the Source I have chosen to return to Earth to continue a Soul’s journey begun many lifetimes ago. My descent into the material world, represented by Taurus is actually a descent into the attraction of, and attachment to things that are not of the Source or me . . . except on the level of the creator of that item. Yet how desirous we can become of the things of this plane of existence. We can literally go backward and identify ourselves with things, losing our identity with the Source. But if we can appreciate the beauty and the muse-inspired creativity of the thing, now we are not attached to it and see it for what it truly is, another bit of the Source, already a part of us regardless of ownership. We don’t have to have it to enjoy it.

Then we shift into Gemini, the sign of conflict for the purpose of finding harmony, where instead of fighting over our toys we choose to share them and communicate our love and appreciation of the other rather than a sense of difference, alienation or competition for stuff. Communication becomes an exchange of ideas on ever higher levels as we reach out to assist one another in our evolution.
