Today’s I Ching Hexagram for August 1 is 61: Centering in Truth

61: Centering in Truth

August 1st, 2014
hexagram09

Truth involves establishing an aware relationship between your inner core and the circumstances in your life. Centering in truth involves the ability to perceive a fundamental wisdom, reflected within yourself and the people you know.

Truth is transformed into power when you dissolve prejudice and make yourself receptive to the world as it really is. Truth’s power can be a remarkable force indeed — yet is rarer than generally imagined. It can be maintained only by cultivating a genuine openness to things as they are — a willingness to see, rather than merely look.

Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked; if you cloak genuine mysteries in dogma, opportunities for new insight will be lost. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds.

In any debate, the power to perceive the truth in the other side’s argument is essential to achieving success. It is possible to influence even the most difficult people, or improve the most difficult circumstance, through the power of universal truth — for unvarnished truth is something to which all things naturally respond. Get in touch with the part of yourself that is aware of this universal force. Cultivate this inner resource, and you will become adept at using it to bond with others to support a common purpose.

Your Tarot Card for August 1 is The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man

August 1st, 2014

Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action. This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.

This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again. Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.

Your Horoscopes for Friday, August 1

We have a new set of planetary energies to assimilate today with talkative Mercury’s two-week visit to proud Leo. Our confidence soars as warrior Mars squares optimistic Jupiter, and we may be so sure of our opinions that we grow stubborn in our self-defense. Although the gracious Libra Moon encourages us to seek balance, we are torn between rebellious actions and responsible self-restraint as Venus aligns with radical Uranus and stabilizing Saturn

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The tension between you and someone special might begin to ease up today, but the source of the stress doesn’t necessarily go away. You can take the easy way out and simply move on to the next situation demanding your attention. However, this is a squeaky wheel gets the grease type of strategy. Even if you remove yourself from the initial problem, it will return unless you face the issue and push it into the light of consciousness. It’s time to muster up some of that famous Aries courage and get to work.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s very possible that you don’t agree with the direction being suggested to you, but it could be self-defeating to openly go against your partner’s wishes now. Nevertheless, you don’t have to be afraid to say yes to a spontaneous invitation; trying something new might serve you well today. In the meantime, remember to let go of your plan if others don’t embrace it. Your enthusiasm is an asset as long as you aim it in the right direction.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You must decide whether to change your loyalties today or stick with your previous commitment. Your nagging anxiety may push you to choose sooner than you wish. Nevertheless, your discomfort settles down throughout the day as your path becomes clear. Don’t allow self-doubt to get in your way. You can influence your future by envisioning it once you know what you want. Work hard and let the power of positive thinking do its magic.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

There’s no reason to compromise your needs today. You have a precise idea of what you want and are wise to reveal your desires to those who matter. Sharing your feelings may seem scary at first, but your story will flow easily once you begin talking. Others will respect you for taking a stand whether or not they agree with your decisions. You’re armed with unabashed optimism, serious determination and innocent playfulness, which might just be an unbeatable combination.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your positive attitude goes a long way toward progressing along the road to success, but even your closest friends might not understand what’s motivating you today. Your actions may appear erratic and out of character, but you know exactly what you’re doing. Unfortunately, your confidence could backfire unless you’re willing to slow down and bring others with you. Avoid the temptation to strike out on your own, even if it takes longer to accomplish your objectives. Reaching your destination is sweeter when you share it with those you love.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Keeping yourself busy is not a substitute for being productive. You realize that part of your job now is to sort out the meaning from the increasing amount of trivial distractions. The pace is growing more hectic day by day and you might feel as if you have no place to hide. However, it’s not wise to cut yourself off from the current flow of information because there are gems of truth buried in the incoming data and it’s up to you to find them.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It seems as if it’s no use trying to keep secrets now because everyone already appears to know what’s going on in your life. Don’t get discouraged; the chaos peaks today and then the energy will begin to settle down. The cosmic forces that are magnifying your social world are almost ready to move on and your life will soon return to normal. Ironically, you may find yourself missing the excitement sooner than you think, so enjoy all the activity while it lasts.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You have been quietly watching your own show play inside your head, wondering how to bring your story out into the open. Finally, heightened anxiety may propel you toward taking action today. The timing is good, but make certain your risk is worth it because you won’t be able to hit the undo key once you make your move. Nevertheless, don’t overshoot your target; expending too much energy now isn’t wise. It’s better to achieve your goals than to fall short empty-handed and exhausted.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may have high ideals and big dreams, only to discover that they are out of place in your external world today. Thankfully, this incongruity isn’t a problem. Rather than giving up on your own vision of your future, relegate it to the fantasy realm, where you are free to do whatever you want without external consequences. Keeping the dream alive now is more important than reaching your goal. Taking care of your responsibilities while exploring your imagination allows you to experience the best of both worlds.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Yesterday’s stress begins to settle back down today, especially if you expressed what was on your mind. At first, you might be pleasantly surprised by all the emotional support you receive, but then reality sinks in and you realize how much work you have ahead. Your optimism serves you well, but don’t let blind faith be a substitute for following through on your promises. Remember, everything looks a little closer now than it actually is. Reach for the stars but be grateful if you only touch the treetops.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Keeping your plans in perspective is challenging now because you’re painting the future in very bright colors. It’s tempting to believe that a large project will require less time and money than it actually does. It’s easy to assume that other people will do everything they say, but chances are they, too, will fall short of their promises. Nevertheless, this is not a time for denial or doubt; you can make your dreams come true as long as you don’t turn a sensible idea into an unrealistic fantasy.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your bubble might not actually pop today as long as you accept that it can’t get any bigger. The safest way out of your current predicament is to figure out how to deflate it before it explodes. You helped to create the present circumstances by inflating a perfectly good idea until it became too big to handle. Rather than considering your involvement as a problem, think of it as an adventure. You’re the specialist on the bomb squad and have been sent in to defuse a tense situation. This is the stuff that creates heroes.

Overview of Your Love Horoscopes for the Weekend of Aug., 2 – 4

Weekend Love Horoscope

August 2-4: Nurturing Love

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

You might go into the weekend feeling like love is a sure thing, but wait — not so fast! Yes, the Moon will be in partnership-oriented Libra until late Saturday night, but the dominating energy has more to do with Mars in intense Scorpio. This weekend you might feel a sense of endless frustration with your lover because he or she may seem more interested in lying low than doing anything social.

On Saturday, Mercury in playful Leo will square off with Mars, and there could be an argument about love, sex, or having more fun in your relationship. This may escalate quickly, leading to angry words spoken that one of you ultimately regrets.

Fortunately, the Moon in Scorpio will link up supportively to both Neptune and Pluto by Sunday, allowing both of you to soften up enough to address the situation. Don’t allow a lover’s quarrel to ruin a potentially good time!

August Days: The Bold and the Beautiful

August Days: The Bold and the Beautiful

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of sun, scorpio, saturn, mars, leo, horoscopes, astrology

Yay, it’s party time! As we enter August 2014 with the Sun in fiery Leo, there’s an element of playfulness and child-likeness in the air. The Sun rules the heart, and everything is out in the open now.

Even better? Lucky planet Jupiter is also in Leo, which only happens once every 12 years! Master Astrologer Jeff Jawer says we can use this potent combination to get brilliant results this month.

“When we are dynamic and creating and loving and expressing and taking risks in living our lives,” he said, “then I think we really tap into this expansive power of both the Sun and Jupiter in Leo.”

However, it’s important to know that Mars and Saturn are in serious Scorpio this month, too, which creates a strong counter-current to the buoyant Leo energy. This could cause some creative conflict, so you’ll really need to focus on the details if you want to realize your grand Leo plans.

Fortunately, Mars and Saturn will also make positive aspects to help us out!

“Each of those planets will form harmonious trines with wild, crazy and ingenious Uranus in Aries,” said Master Astrologer Rick Levine. “This allows the energy to flow in ways that we do not expect. If we don’t get in the way of ourselves, this can bring some very, very powerful, new and exciting results.”

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 1

The so-called dog days of August 2014 are upon us — exactly 100 years since the beginning of World War I, and the skies today have their own version of a titanic battle. In terms of celestial bodies close to Earth, all three planets nearby — Mercury, Venus, and Mars — are highly active. Venus in Cancer is the main agent of change since this traditional heavenly orb of love and beauty squared shock-master Uranus last night, and now she proceeds to offer eager human souls a grand triangle in water signs, composed of 120-degree flowing trines to Saturn in Scorpio (3:23AM) followed by another one to Chiron in Pisces (8:06AM). Healing forces, although somewhat disguised or sluggish, are back on the march with the amelioration of old wounds the primary target. Mercury — the Messenger of the Gods cool-communication winged-deity — reinforces interests in the widening field of alternative medicine by forming a potent, 135-degree tie with Chiron (2:51PM). The red planet Mars — ancient ruler of both agriculture and warfare — takes on the biggest challenge by making a feisty square of 90-degrees to King of the Gods and leader-of-the-pack Jupiter (3:47PM). Their adversarial joust — deepening the rivalry between fixed and powerful Scorpio and Leo, respectively — can knock your socks off across the board. Therefore, the universe is putting a lot out on the line during this first 24-hour time-period in the eighth month of the year. To add cosmic insult to injury, the Moon in Libra squares Venus in Cancer (7:59PM) — simultaneously starting an almost precise 24-hour void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 7:58PM tomorrow night. Don’t press your luck by making major overnight decisions. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
