Feeling Awkward during this Lunar-Saturn Eclipse?

The bright side is that we are being called to stand out, be agreeable, and level-headed.

Are you feeling awkward? Feeling isolated due to never knowing how to finesse a social or business interaction? Alternately, are you so nervous about the outcome of a situation that you are willing to practice a bit of crafty manipulation here and there to get what you want? There may be a feeling of being a little restricted right now, and the demands and pressures from others may feel like it is impeding on any personal ego/Ego self-dilemmas we may face. 

Since the Earth had already observed a Sun/Saturn eclipse last winter, we already were given the tools to thrive under "excessive rulership." In the coming days, we will have a Lunar/Saturn eclipse. We may already have a desire to work hard, to observe the rules and seek stability, so the influence of restriction may feel especially puissant at this time. There may be some power moves used by us or others to maintain control of various interactions. This situation may cause us to believe we have to use our power in ways that we may not have to if we are willing to let go.

The bright side is that we are being called to stand out, be agreeable, and level-headed. It will be a balancing act for our lower ego: do we show off how much we know, or do we move unencumbered from our heart and help those around us get the gist of what we are attempting to communicate? Our intuitions will tell us what to say or share, when to do so, and how to do it. No matter what we decide to share with those around us, in this second decan of Taurus, we will be charming and persuasive when we do it.

We are being called to share things that will make others uncomfortable -- these will be truths that undermine tradition, the way specific paradigms work, and which behaviors are acceptable, versus which ones are tolerable.

With the Moon waning in Sagittarius and making its way to Taurus, more emphasis on leaving the "whys"  and moving to the "hows" of creating, loving, doing and being is here. 

In this way we can continue to cultivate the seeds sown, and observe, pruning what needs to be shed and watering that which needs feeding. It is the perfect time to be more practical and not take chances on a few lofty expectations.
