13th June 2012:
Watch out for provocations at the moment. They may come in all shapes and sizes, and find our sensitive spots to dig away at. Nothing is sacred at a time like this. Whatever our pet hates, this is the time for them to be brought to our attention. But this isn’t just some sadistic aspect of the universe gaining its pleasure from winding us up, no matter how much it may feel that way. With Chiron now retrograde, we’re in a phase of inner healing, and for that healing to occur we need to know what in us requires it. When the body’s out of balance it produces symptoms to alert us, and to attempt to rebalance itself: stomach pain notifies us of something not right inside, a rash shows the body trying to cast out imbalance, away from more vital internal organs. Our psyche works much the same way. If something really riles us, we experience that impact physically, emotionally and mentally. The unease, irritation, stress etc. alerts us to the fact that we’ve lost balance, that something has shifted our energy out of kilter. Just as we pay attention to a stomach pain - trying to remember when it began, what we had eaten, have we had this pain before - we can pay the same attention to our mental and emotional state: when did this feeling of unease begin? When did our temper begin to fray? Where were we and what had happened? Paying this kind of close attention to our internal world makes very good use of the provocations that occur in daily life, for it turns each one into an opportunity for greater insight and deeper self knowledge, which is the purpose of these provocations in the first place. They’re a guide, an aid, to a more peaceful and conscious life in the long run. The more we can honour them as such, the more content we can be in the present.
If I'm a male living in U.S. and we are in the same platoon on a battlefield, I will immediately request for a change to another platoon or ask the Platoon Commander to place you in barrack office to do paperworks. With your character/behaviour, who knows when you will point your rifle barrel to all your platoon mates one by one, killing all of us slowly and surrender to the enemy forces.
