You Can't Serve God and Fear

New Moon | February 4, 2019 | 15 Aquarius 45’
The keywords for Aquarius are “I know.” When I know, I am independent of the need for agreement or information from anything or anyone outside of me. The tone of this chart is Libra, the sign of Aquarius’ 9th house of forward thinking. Aquarius is said to be detached, meaning not biased or bringing personal weight or will to that which is being observed. Aquarius trines Libra. In this chart, the asteroid of wisdom, Pallas-Athene, is in Libra. Because Libra is fair-minded and capable of thinking in win-win terms, Pallas-Athene is strong in Libra. Pallas-Athene also denotes an inner knowing. This feminine asteroid balances Mars and Uranus in Aries where there is fierce independence which will not be brooked by persuasion or coercion. Pluto, which is known apply pressure is conjunct the South Node in Capricorn and square to both the wisdom of Pallas-Athene in Libra and the “I’ll do it my way’ of Mars and Uranus in Aries.
Some people might feel as if they are in a fight for their very sanity. This fight is waged between what they are going for in Aries—freedom and entrepreneurship—and limitations or doubts from Capricorn. Suppose one is trying to enjoy freedom from limitation, but confronted by apparent limitations, like no present or foreseen visible means of support?
“Things are working out for me even though I don’t yet see how.” This kind of statement of confidence must be made even if at first tentatively. Can you see that this stance is a better than fearing disappointment and failure?
One occasionally gets threatened by the looks of things. The strong visions prompted by Aries are often followed by feelings of doubt. Doubt is not okay. Doubt is evidence of a split mind and a split mind is going to get ragged results.
Splitting your mind is looking expectantly at what you don’t want. It is easier to imagine that things won’t work out when you don’t know how they will. Faith is required. You have to believe that you don’t need to know how. The need to know is the very thing that trips you up. You can’t see what you can’t see, and so you must trust that what you can’t see is good.
The North Node in Cancer, ruled by the Moon which is new in Aquarius, is in the 6th house of work and health. North Node in Cancer in the 6th requires emotional well-being, regardless of what might be the appearance of limitation at the South Node conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Emotional well-being sextiles Juno in Taurus in the 4th, the house of well-being. I can make healthy progress in the 6th house if I partner with someone who lives with me or if I align with own soul. The idea that things are working out for you implies that someone or something has your back and you can count on them.
Contemplate this: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” To me, serving God and mammon means serving God and your fears.
“Therefore, I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” Matthew 6:34.
In other words, let go and let God. Let the singular mind keep your eyes focused.
Take two post-it size slips of paper.
On one slip, write down what you would love to have, be, or do.
On the second slip write a statement of the opposite (which should reflect your doubts).
Fold the slips as small as you can and creating a cup with your hand shake the two opposing ideas.
Choose one of the slips.
If you select the positive statement, then burn the other slip.
If you choose the statement of doubt, you will be feel clear that you don’t want that. Burn it.
On the positive statement write: things are working out for me.
Put the affirming statement away knowing that things will work out your way.
