February 2017: Leo Lunar Eclipse
February’s Leo full Moon on 11th February (at 12:32 am GMT) is a appulse lunar eclipse. As an eclipse it is not particularly powerful, but it is a lunar eclipse nonetheless.
The two main elements of this eclipse, the Moon and the Sun, both have Sabian Symbols that speak of ‘circuses’ and performance. The Moon is on Leo 23: A BAREBACK RIDER IN A CIRCUS DISPLAYS THEIR DANGEROUS SKILL and the Sun is on Aquarius 23: A BIG BEAR SITTING DOWN AND WAVING ALL ITS PAWS. Many have said what a circus we are experiencing at the moment; we can feel like we’re witnessing ‘circus acts’, and, we may be wondering what is reality and what is just a part of the ‘circus’. The ‘performances’ that we are seeing, or, participating in, may have us feeling as though we are not sure where we are likely to land, and, there can be a feeling of reality versus theatre. This sense of mystery, or being uncertain, can be sense even more strongly as Mercury is on a Symbol that can bring further confusion with Mercury on Aquarius 6: A MASKED FIGURE PERFORMS RITUALISTIC ACTS IN A MYSTERY PLAY.
There are, though, redeeming energies in this full Moon with both Jupiter and Uranus in good sextile and trine aspects to the Sun and the Moon. This shows the possibility, indeed, the necessity, of accessing our beliefs in the goodness of life, and, our personal freedoms. This is made stronger by both Venus and Mars in Aries; we are coming out of a very Piscean time where we may have had a ‘sink or swim’ feeling around events, in both a personal and a political sense, especially as we have been witness to some very strong political movements that have challenged or inspired us to action. We are likely to be revving up our energies and gathering up our strength and embracing more and more our individual thoughts, beliefs and feelings, and, we may have had to throw out things along the way, especially recently.
Adding to the sense of of the need for more personal autonomy is Mars on Aries 11: THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC, OR THE RULER OF ONE’S COUNTRY. This Symbol speaks of the need to call the shots, to be in charge, to not let others call our agendas. Easier said at time, for sure, but, we do well to remember our true place in the scheme of things – we are asked to take control and not let others push us around or define us merely by our ‘country’; where we come from, what we do for a living; how much money we have.
It seems we, our leaders, and our world may have a lot at stake. Yet, how do we tell what is reality and what is theatre? This lunar eclipse has been amplifying intensity levels and will bring this act to a head.
WORKING WITH THE LUNAR ENERGIES
The full Moon each month marks a time of heightened energies and events. It often marks the culmination of the energies released at the new Moon. Emotions can be supercharged as the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the zodiac and illumination is increased – it’s like we can see in the dark – and we can be hyper-aware as well as being hyper-awake. The effects of a full Moon can be major or minor, depending on how they interact with your own chart. Sometimes, realizations or events that are unleashed, or unlocked, can stretch their meaning months into the future. A lot can be learned at the time of the full Moon and whether it’s lunacy or illumination, or a combination of both, there’s magic unleashed.
The Sabian Symbols
He who rides a tiger is afraid to dismount. Chinese Proverb
Being on the tightrope is living; everything else is waiting. Karl Wallenda
I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse. I only owe it to the horse’s good nature that I am not thrown off at this very moment. Ludwig Wittgenstein
I get enough exercise just pushing my luck. Bumper Sticker
If you can’t ride two horses at once, you shouldn’t be in the circus. G. McAllister
Better ride on an ass that carries me than a horse that throws me. Romanian Proverb
No one reaches a high position without daring. Publilius Syrus
The full Moon is on Leo 23: A BAREBACK RIDER IN A CIRCUS DISPLAYS THEIR DANGEROUS SKILL – the following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom: – this Symbol works well if we feel that we are doing something that we are born to do, something we’ve worked hard to succeed at, doing those things, perhaps that feel ‘second nature’ to us. If we are not ready, or, practiced at what we’re attempting to do, we can be thrown off, we can end up having to go back and learn the ropes some more in order to accomplish what we’ve set out to do.
Commentary: ‘A Bareback Rider in a Circus Displays Her Dangerous Skill’. She puts herself in the middle of the action, taking risks that are second nature to her. Training has prepared her to perform tricks and maneuvers that seem awe-inspiring, well timed and carefully planned. She is so well rehearsed that even the most dangerous stunts are done with ease. These things, however, can be so daring or dangerous that others would have trouble even imagining doing them, let alone actually attempting to do them. She has an amazing sense of balance and belief in her center of gravity.
Oracle: You may believe passionately in what you are doing, but in order to prove yourself to others you need to present your abilities and feelings boldly and skillfully. You may need to be fully prepared to rush into the “ring” and show what you’re capable of. This done correctly will impress others, and may cause others to be in awe of your talent and the risks and dangers involved. However, remember to be wary of “running into the ring” unrehearsed, unprepared or in the wrong frame of mind. A sense of timing and the knowledge of what you’re doing is critical, as is being unruffled that others may be watching to see how well you succeed. If you have confidence in your abilities, there’s a good chance that you won’t be “bucked” or “thrown off”. You will have the ability to complete your mission and be applauded by others for your achievement. If, however, you are scared stiff of taking on this challenge, do you think you should chance it? If you are merely looking for applause, acclaim or recognition from others, without being sure of what you’re doing, this may indeed be a dangerous and foolhardy stunt. Do you feel you have the balance, skills and courage to do what is necessary?
Keywords: Defying gravity. Controlling one’s animal instincts. Courage and mastery over one’s energies. Shows of strength. Situations where one might get “bucked”. Rushing in where angels fear to tread. Being shown in the media. The allure of drama and danger. Life as a circus or carnival. Amazing displays of skill. Superheroes. Comic book characters. Impressing people with well-rehearsed skills.
The Caution: “Showing off”, losing control and falling. Demanding attention. Looking for applause. Fooling with nature’s energies. Arousing or controlling animal passions. Acting wildly and not thinking about the consequences.
The Moon symbolizes: Emotions, moods, mother, family, clan, domestic issues, relationship to home and country. Feelings, sentiments, nourishment, emotional nurturing, monkey chatter mind, lunar and menstrual cycles, clarity of emotions or lunacy. Female energy – yours and others.
The Sun is on Aquarius 23: A BIG BEAR SITTING DOWN AND WAVING ALL ITS PAWS – this Symbol can have us feeling like we have to ‘perform’ in some way that may not be second nature to us, although, if we’ve put in the time, studied what we need to know, practiced and rehearsed, we can move into a whole new sense of accomplishment as long as we are not compromising ourselves, or, doing what others expect of us. Staying authentic to who we truly are is key here.
This speaks of the need to develop responses and perform above and beyond the normal expected level. Having to do what others tell you, or perform along the lines of how you’ve been trained may be fine for a while, but eventually you are likely to tire of doing the same things or not being taken seriously. Perhaps there are things you don’t want to do, but it seems your duty to perform. Look to your situation and see if you are compromising yourself or just acting out conditioned responses. Perhaps you are indeed excelling your normal level of performance, only you can tell.
Keywords: Developing skills. Making excuses. Performing rote responses. Expecting others to perform. Entertaining people. Being theatrical. Stomach rubs. Big, tall, brute energies. Sitting down or standing up. Fur and fuzzy hair. Playing instruments. Dancing. Performances. Hand and arm waving. Animal training. Bears. Training in general. Learning by example. Fun vs. drudge. Circus performances.
The Caution: Being unable to recover your feet. Instinctive and creative performing for the crowd or desire to be the center of attention. Defying authority. Being vulnerable.
The Sun symbolizes: One’s core center, spirit, heart, issues to do with father, men, self, ego, your male side. How you radiate your sense of being. What others see, how you are recognized or remembered, sense of identity and connection with male energy – yours and others.
Mercury is on Aquarius 6: A MASKED FIGURE PERFORMS RITUALISTIC ACTS IN A MYSTERY PLAY – just what is going on can be a mystery with Mercury on this degree. As with the Sun and Moon Symbols in this lunar eclipse, Mercury can have us wondering if what we’re seeing or hearing is really real. We may feel the need to somehow ‘perform’ in order to ‘fit in’, although, often with this Symbol, we have an even stronger sense of the need for stripping away what is false, what is theatre, what doesn’t ring true to our authentic selves.
This Symbol shows being theatrical, conveying a story, putting on a show, getting messages across to others. “Mystery Plays” portrayed archetypal stories from the Bible, often performed in Latin. “Performers” traveled the countryside, entertaining and teaching with drama as well as humor. Sometimes the “Mystery Play” can show that things are not quite as they seem. Mysteries can play a big part here – is someone wearing a mask? You may find that you are not shown the true face of people or situations. Look to see who the performers are. Are you part of the play or in the audience? Perhaps you need to be cautious in what you reveal.
Keywords: Rituals. Shamanism. Archetypes of personality. Putting on a show. Portrayals of performances that don’t always add-up. The unmasking of someone. Comedy. Banditry. Mystery. Drama. Acting. Rituals. Executioner’s masks. Smoke screens. Doing the technical but not the emotional. Saying or doing things because they “should”. Having alternate personalities.
The Caution: Deceptive or neurotic performances. Unwilling to admit to changing times. Not knowing who the players are or what the plot is. Cautious revealing. Tricks. Ploys.
Mercury symbolizes: Mind, thought, communication, memory, expression, intelligence. News, exchanges, chatting, conversations, short journeys, connections with others, telephones, emails, siblings, neighbors, the reasoning mind. Day-to-day activities. Cars, keys, small animals.
Venus is on Aries 6: A SQUARE BRIGHTLY LIGHTED ON ONE SIDE – if we’re feeling hemmed in, like there’s no escape, as if there’s no clear way forward, we will do well to remember our creative and spiritual options – we can look towards the ‘light’ – there is always a way out of dilemmas when this degree is around.
This Symbol often shows a positive nature that knows how to find ways out of situations by creating creative solutions. Don’t become too concerned with one side of issues in the material world, even if you feel boxed in with no way out. Don’t have all your eggs in one basket. You have the ability to simply look around with a more objective eye and apply simple, active solutions – there are always ways out of dilemmas. Look for the light and head towards it.
Keywords: Illuminated solutions that provide ways out of tight situations. Having to put up walls to protect or defend versus taking down the barriers. Putting all your eggs in one basket. Feeling fully contained. Walls and fences. Boxes. Understanding the borders of one’s activities. Looking for stabilization. Lighting up dark corners. Sunshine. Stepping outside the square or feeling there is no square. Moving out. Windows and doors. Rubik’s Cube.
The Caution: Surrendering, feeling trapped, seeing only one side of situations. Bouncing around. Wanting to escape tight situations. Feeling locked in or boxed in.
Venus symbolizes: Relatedness, cooperation, what attracts you. The experience of sweetness, beauty or delight. Social interactions, love, friends, how you reach out to people. Feminine persona, relationship with mother and females. Money, possessions, sense of values.
Mars is on Aries 11: THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC, OR THE RULER OF ONE’S COUNTRY – it is quite extraordinary that Mars is on this degree, really, with all that’s going on politically in the world right now. Mars here can remind us to take charge of our lives, to be our own ‘president’, to call our own shots. Even if we feel somewhat at the mercy of other’s ‘authority’ over us, we can break out of that by reminding ourselves of our autonomy… What interesting times we are living in.
This Symbol shows that it’s time to take charge, to expand your base of operations and to show that you have the integrity and the necessary energy to get things done. It’s also about bringing a sense of order and discipline into your life – physically, spiritually or emotionally. Find your sense of inner power and make it work for you and don’t let others lord it over you. Be in control of your own destiny and individuality. Show that you can be given a position of responsibility and get things done.
Keywords: Developing willpower. Inner power, discipline and integrity. Discipline of thoughts, emotions and actions. Leadership, power and ability along with their responsibilities. Accepting responsibility for one’s actions. “Calling the shots”. Rulers, presidents, leaders. Taking charge. The need for loyal subjects. Being voted in. The democratic process.
The Caution: Taking control, lording it over everyone, being overbearing. Egotistical and self-centered. Undermining others through a lack of awareness or self confidence.
Mars symbolizes: Drive, determination or agenda, how you get to your goals. How you express and handle anger, ambition, assertion of self and ability to step forward. The male principle, sexuality, the ability to step up to the plate when one needs to. Fight or flight.
Jupiter is stationary retrograde on Libra 24: A THIRD WING ON THE LEFT SIDE OF A BUTTERFLY – Jupiter goes retrograde on February 6 on this degree, adding to the need to find our balance, our equilibrium, etc. On a physical, emotional or political level, we can find the left and right working against each other as each side tries to gain control of the other. Needless to say, this can lead to all kinds of struggles. Finding our
This Symbol can show imbalances of many kinds; physical, mental, spiritual or emotional. Understanding and accepting fragility and differences in our self and others can give greater empathy for those who have difficulty operating efficiently in the world. When the transformation into full potential occurs, it is wonderful, however, you may feel that you are unnaturally developed or somehow lopsided in the emotive, intuitive realms. Instinct may swamp logic or logic may take from instinct or intuition. Physically, one side of your body could work more efficiently or smoothly than the other. It helps to try to regain balance and equilibrium – try finding that still space in the middle.
Keywords: Creative overbalance. Bodily impairments and handicaps. Being light, flippant and fluttering from thing to thing. Over-sensitivities. Oddities. Beautiful imperfections. Idiot savants. Imbalances. One side of the body being more perfect than the other. Wings, arms, legs, feet.
The Caution: Unrealistic reliance on being different. Obsession with strange things. Flapping around and not getting anywhere. Restlessness, nervousness. Lopsidedness.
Jupiter symbolizes: The big picture, expansion, exploration, aspirations, religious and philosophical ideals, issues to do with traveling, foreign lands, people and traditions, culture, education, generosity, luck, abundance, support, optimism. Insight through knowledge and wisdom.
Saturn is on Sagittarius 26: A FLAG-BEARER IN A BATTLE – Saturn on this degree can bring out the desire, or the need, to stand up, to wave our flag, to salute our standards. However, with Saturn here, the push back may be rather strong, or, we may feel somewhat tired of constantly having to step up. It is going to be very interesting to see which way events go over the next few weeks, with Saturn on this degree. The trick is that Saturn is just now entering the orb of the Galactic Center, where we are said to be able to connect with the ‘Law Of Attraction’ (I feel that we can connect with that ‘law’ on any degree of the zodiac, it is just particularly strong on the degrees from Sagittarius 26 to Capricorn 1). With Saturn here, we may feel that things are out of our control, but, with faith, we can direct our responses, and, our realities into our chosen direction. Having said that, we may still need to stand up and be counted, at least in some measure.
This Symbol shows standing up in “Battle” carrying the “Flag” for your nation, political, social or moral beliefs, or for some issue that needs defending or supporting. The “Flag-Bearer” is often the one ‘out front’, in front of the situation or the army; the one who’s unarmed and yet determined to represent their side. You may feel that there have been achievements done by you or others that need to be acknowledged. Responsibilities pile up on you, and the struggle is not always easy. Don’t worry, though, although everyone around you is busy, they are noticing your leadership abilities. You are often the linchpin of the whole situation.
Keywords: Having the courage of convictions. Standing up for ideals. Representing one’s collective in a worthy cause. Carrying the standard or the ‘Flag’. David and Goliath. Being the messenger. Advocates. Ensigns. Leadership. Self sacrifice. Fighting for political ideals. Flag waving.
The Caution: The sacrificial lamb. Overzealous idealism. Empty shows of courage. The fear of stepping out of line. Not knowing when to back off. An inability to keep quiet.
Saturn symbolizes: Authority, rules, discipline and obligation The heavy stuff. What we fear, loss, karma, aging, the establishment, orthodoxy, tradition, status, the concept of time, walls, boundaries, limits, older people, restrictions, patience, conquering difficulties.
Uranus is on Aries 22: THE GATE OPENS TO THE GARDEN OF ALL FULFILLED DESIRES – concentrating on where you want to be can indeed bring you more and more to that place. We need to step up to the plate and step through the gate, even if it means overthrowing some things that are outworn or unfulfilling in our lives. A sense of peace and fulfillment can be at hand with this degree, although we may have to let go of non-essentials in order to step into that rewarding space.
This Symbol brings up fabulous opportunities and possibilities. You could find yourself in beautiful places with your desires met. There can be the promise of happiness; stability and feeling like you’ve arrived where you want to be. At times, though, you may be right at the point of what you want, but perhaps you need to make the deliberate action of opening the gate; admitting to your self what you want and where you want to be. Perhaps you need to knock, showing your intention of wanting in. Maybe you already have everything you need – look around.
Keywords: Craving happiness. Gardens and their treasures. Trellises and flowing plants. Pathways to bliss. Gates and doors. Unlocking and opening gates and doors. Analyzing your heart’s desires. The grass being greener on the other side. Rewards and treasures waiting. The allure of somewhere else. Initiations. Passages to a better life. Acquiring property. Sexual fulfillment. Opening up to life’s possibilities and rewards.
The Caution: Denying your self the right to receive just rewards. The grass being greener on the other side. Always wanting more and more. Possessions owning you.
Uranus symbolizes: The unexpected, things that are individual or ‘different’. Charged, energetic dynamics, electricity, light, lightning bolts, sudden changes, those who live on the fringe of society. Sudden turns and twists of fate. Rebellion, surprises, liberation, freedom.
Neptune is on Pisces 11: PEOPLE TRAVELING A NARROW PATH, SEEKING ILLUMINATION – staying true to your path can bring enormous rewards, especially if you’re been clear about what and where your ‘true path’ is. That light at the end of the tunnel does not have to be an oncoming train, although, at times, especially lately, that may be exactly what it has felt like.
This shows having a quest, “Seeking Illumination”, having a “Path” and staying on it regardless of what life throws at you. Sometimes the search for high ideals and understanding places us at odds with the more conservative social expectations of others. It is the ability to persevere with the search, regardless of the cost, that marks the sincerity of any path or journey. You may, at times, have to go without some comforts or stick to a rigorous agenda. Most times this quest is very illuminating, sometimes it’s confusing. You will need to reject that which is unworthy, while staying true to your objectives in order to stay focused on the goal.
Keywords: People “on the Path”. Sticking to one mindset, diet, regimen or habit. Having a cause to follow. Not looking sideways. Awakening one’s base senses in order to progress. Physical ecstasy. Being in the now. Going towards the light. Staying true to self. The promise of light at the end of the journey.
The Caution: Being blinded by the light. Not knowing where you’re going. Denial of physical pleasure. Puritanical and one-eyed. Distractions. Narrow minded. Disillusionment.
Neptune symbolizes: Mystical, “out there,” spirituality and con artists. Dreams, mysteries, mystics and religious issues. Intuition, clairvoyance, seeing into the invisible. Addictive, chaotic, charming, deceptive, illusory, co dependent, sensory awareness.
Pluto is on Capricorn 19: A CHILD OF ABOUT FIVE CARRYING A HUGE SHOPPING BAG FILLED WITH GROCERIES = this Symbol, especially with Pluto on it, can bring up issues of having taken on too much, feeling burdened or held down by responsibilities. It can, of course, show situations where someone is not mature enough or ready to carry out all that needs to be done or taken care of. One can feel tired and weighed down, although, there can be a leap ahead in our development if we can rightfully sort out what is truly ours to shoulder and what is not.
This Symbol shows having to “Carry” heavy loads, to shoulder responsibilities, do chores and jobs and help others, sometimes because there’s no one else who can or will do it. Often, the “Child” gets these responsibilities because they are the one who others know is going to take it seriously, completing the task, taking care of details. You may feel that you have been burdened with responsibilities beyond normal expectations and possibly beyond your capability. Despite being keen and enthusiastic, you must be careful not to try to take on too much, or do too much, or too quickly. Like a child, you need to play, be creative and rest.
Keywords: Being the one everyone counts on to do the job. Feeling weighed down. Having to carry the “bag”. Lifting heavy weights and bearing the consequences. Taking on things above and beyond what one should. Acting the grownup. Maturing quickly. Looking after paperwork. Running errands. Providing food and sustenance for everyone.
The Caution: Overloading the innocent and the inexperienced without thought of the consequences. Never being ‘off duty’. Dropping the bundle. Carrying the family.
Pluto symbolizes: Unconscious motivations, depth psychology, history. Sex, procreation at a deep level, intensity, profound emotions, taking hold of one’s power. Being king or queen of one’s underworld. Strength, survival mode instincts. Big money. Big power. The Plutocracy. Power vs power struggles.
Chiron is on Pisces 23: A ‘MATERIALIZING MEDIUM’ GIVING A SÉANCE – Chiron was on this degree for several months last year. Many people felt that their psychic abilities and intuition were increasing, leading to stronger impressions and being able to pick up on what’s going on. Chiron here can bring rich rewards from checking out what we ‘materialise’ through our thoughts, through the stories that we tell ourselves. What are the stories that take up your time and energies? How true or viable are they?
This shows the ability, or the need, to pick up subtle energies and psychic clues in the environment. The “Materializing Medium” can receive radiations, frequencies or vibrations that cannot easily be sensed by most people. You may be experiencing a surprising sensitivity and awareness to spiritual forces and energies. This can cause confusion, other times enlightenment. Sit with any new impressions until you understand their authenticity or depth. Sometimes there is a need to free ‘stuck’ or earthbound entities. This can show someone who can “Materialize” things; make things happen just by thinking about or concentrating on them.
Keywords: Spiritual channeling. A need to free up “stuck” or earthbound entities. Efforts to materialize things. Coming straight out with things. Giving voice to spirit. Tarot readings, clairvoyance and clairsentience. Things seen ahead of their time. Bringing messages from the other side. Contacting the dead.
The Caution: False fronts or performances. Making things up. Using mind control to get a desired outcome. Weird energies or people. Quacks. Imposters. Fakes. Delusional.
Chiron symbolizes: Our wounds, Chiron is known as The Wounded Healer. The wounds are The Stories That We Tell Ourselves, it is where we have to focus on healing, it can show things that are out of shape or misplaced or in need of repair.
The Moon’s North Node is on Virgo 4: BLACK AND WHITE CHILDREN PLAYING HAPPILY TOGETHER – the Moon’s north node on this degree brings up issues to do with seeing others as equals; to see people on the same playing field, people just wanting to get ahead in life, being free to be themselves without fear nor favour.
This Symbol shows the integration of people of different races, religions, economic status or places. You may find people from different or seemingly disparate or separate areas coming into your life, making it richer, more rewarding and interesting. Prejudice of any kind, whether religious or race based, economic or class systems, is an illusion based on social perception and excludes people that could add to our lives. Social perceptions can color how we see others and these need to be put aside. Rather, it’s about embracing brotherhood and caring. The integration, acceptance and enjoyment of all people brings depth and meaning to life.
Keywords: Universal brotherhood. Overcoming prejudices and boundaries that separate people. Knocking down social barriers to relate freely. Being able to let go, relax and have fun with people from anywhere. Adopted siblings. Foster homes. Affirmative action. Trust and joy. Play that unites people.
The Caution: Acting with morality that is swayed by public opinion. Not being able to adjust psychologically to situations that require creative responses. Racial prejudice.
The Moon’s North Node symbolizes: This is known as quite a ‘karmic point’ (although all planets and points in a chart can be’karmic’). One’s destiny in this life. The things you are meant to integrate, move towards, become. Destined relationships and relationship issues can show up here.
The Moon’s South Node is on Pisces 4: HEAVY CAR TRAFFIC LINKING TWO SEASIDE RESORTS – this Symbol can have us racing backwards and forwards, it can have us travelling, moving around, etc, or, it can have us thinking too much, not being able to settle where we are, not feel settled anywhere.
This shows moving about, getting from destination to destination in a free flowing manner. Driving or flying or in a bus; there’s lots of activity going on. There’s also a need for space sharing, patience and give-and-take as people have their own needs. This can show communications and linkages between separate worlds leading to increased pleasure, OR, frustration, confusion or psychic indigestion and the need for a holiday. There’s a lot going on and confusion can set in if one doesn’t follow the rules to ensure a smooth flow of operations. Being ‘squeezed-in’ can bring a sense of panic but it can also bring pleasurable interchange between people and a chance to tune out.
Keywords: Going with the flow. Running back and forth. Having to move continually. Pollution and car exhaust. Rush hour and road-rage. Plans for arrivals and departures. Public holidays. Traffic jams. Traffic banking up. Having trouble making left hand turns. Detours. Packing and unpacking. Luggage. Travel itineraries. Impasses. Nervous systems. Urine therapy. Constant phone calls. Switchboard jams. Heat and smog.
The Caution: Distrust of connecting elements. Creating barriers. Constant traffic. No real human interchange. Road rage. Traffic works. No time for leisure. Accidents. No escape.
The Moon’s South Node symbolizes: Past karmic patterns to be overcome, can be habits that are good, but can describe things, relationships, issues that you need to let go of, or, hold you back from manifesting your true destiny. Relationships that feel karmic and difficult, memories from the past.
