“You are conditioned to believe that if you let go, if you surrender, you will either be a victim of circumstances and not assertive in your own being, or you will be viewed as being lazy, lacking in willpower, and unmotivated.

Yet will and power cannot exist alongside one another. Motivation does not come into question when you surrender fully into the present moment. Motivation to do, to take action, to make moves, comes naturally from this surrender.”

Kelly Martin, When Everyone Shines But You – Saying Goodbye To I’m Not Good Enough

Mercury turned direct last week and Jupiter stations to go direct on Monday. Then with a trine between Venus and Jupiter today, our thinking is clearing and has definitely shifted. Is it a new paradigm? Not yet, but things are changing in the slow, ponderous way the Universe has. No rush. We’ll get there when we get there.

This is an important period in which we are urged to trust and embrace our own points of view and our own hard-won beliefs and stop looking to please or seek the approval of others. Our personal self-confidence levels influence how others receive and interpret our energy. Today is the first step toward reclaiming our confidence, self-esteem, and self-respect. We train others how to treat us, and if we don’t treat ourselves with kindness, care, and more than a little tough love, people will take that as a sign of weakness and exploit it in any way they can.

Moon is void-of-course until early afternoon when it arrives in Sagittarius, and our personal beliefs and knowledge begin to emanate from us with extraordinary strength.

Tomorrow is another story.
