Astrology and Self-Worth


Astrology and Self-Worth

With Saturn in 2nd house in opposition to the Sun, I find this affirmation (see photo) particularly appealing and motivational.

Low self-esteem can be indicated by various astrological factors, here are a few examples:

  • Saturn in challenging aspects to Sun/Moon/Venus
  • A challenged Venus (Goddess of love and self-esteem)
  • Challenged 2nd house (of self-worth)
  • Challenged 1st house (of ego,sense of self)
  • Chiron in Aries (wounded ego, self)
               ......and the list goes on.......

It's not all doom and gloom.  We can look elsewhere in the chart to overcome these challenges. 

My Venus helps me out by reminding me that it is more than OK to be different.  My chart ruler urges me to be proud of who I am and to parade down my solar path with dignity and vitality.  The ruler of my 2nd house is in a harmonious aspect to Venus (self-esteem and pleasure).  Therefore, I am able to tap into other reserves to alleviate the pain and discomfort triggered by my Sun-Saturn aspect.

Are you plagued by self-esteem issues?  What are the astrological indicators in your chart and what 'keys' can you use to ease the distress?

Don't Shoot the Messenger!


As we approach the New Moon in Cancer on Friday, coupled with Mercury retrograding Gemini (Cancer in the first half of the cycle), we are likely to be dealing with stirred up emotions with their roots in childhood.  

Instead of feeling sorry for yourself and directing anger at the perpetrator or 'messenger', understand that if pain wasn't within you in the first place, then no external person or event could have triggered the negative reaction in you.  Thank the person for facilitating the process of pushing this subconscious issue (Cancer) into your conscious mind for analysis (Gemini).

Assess Your Internal Dialogue




On the theme of digging into your emotional past (New Moon in Cancer 2014: http://cosmicpotential.blogspot.hk/2014/06/new-moon-in-cancer-2014.html), why not assess your internal dialogue and discover what beliefs are currently reverberating in your mind?  

For example, perhaps you have picked up the notion that 'money is hard to come by', or 'no pain no gain', so you wonder why your colleague can get away with murder while you work your socks off but get the same reward as that lazy so-and-so.    

'Positive affirmations don't work.  I've tried them.'

This is likely to be because consciously, you are uttering the positive statements, but subconsciously, you're thinking of the opposite.  

Our thoughts create our reality. Perhaps it is time to make some alterations and re-adjust those outdated (subconscious) thoughts.  

                                                           "Affirmation" by Savage Garden
                          
I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self-esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

New Moon in Cancer 2014

On 27th June at 9:08am (BST), we have a  new moon which takes place at 5 degrees 37 minutes in the nurturing sign of Cancer.

New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, where seeds of intention can be sown on fertile soil.  

Under the sign of Cancer, representing the mother archetype, it is a great time to explore our subconscious mind, to identify habits and patterns formed during childhood which might be preventing us from moving forward in adulthood.  The cardinal T-square (Mars-Uranus opposition both square Pluto) could reflect impulsive actions that are fear-driven.  Or we could do something different (Uranus) and face our fears (Pluto) boldly (Mars).  It could turn out to be quite a healing experience (New Moon trine Neptune in Pisces).

Check the house in which this new moon lands in your chart.  Do you have planets, angles, points between 4 degrees 37 minutes to 6 degrees 37 minutes in cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra)?  

Cancerian associations:  motherhood, the past, habits, emotions, subconscious mind
