Today is a day for commitment to your relationships and your own emotional needs and boundaries.
The vastness of the Cosmos requires us to create an enclosure, a home, a structure – the expanse of eternity and infinity would swallow us if we did not define a territory.
Territory is an emotional space filled with those you love and its walls are walls of thought, belief and understanding.
By understanding territory and the different scales of space, as well as the borders, boundaries and gateways, we can connect to other realms. The Cosmos is unified in essence, but in experience it is full of separations. We need to recognize the separations and define the boundaries between any given space, domain or realm before we can connect to it properly.
This in turns allows us to locate the empty space, our inner sanctum, a place full of potential.
|The Ancient of Days, 1794, Printing by William Blake: |
Urizen, the embodiment of reason and law,
holding a compass with which he is measuring and containing the universe.
[Just a quick note from me, based on my experience on FB with this post one MSC year ago: If, just if, there is a bit of territorial argy-bargy today, if it seems like someone is metaphorically peeing on your territory – specifically, if it appears that someone is attacking or denigrating you, or, more pertinently, someone you love – let it go until tomorrow (9 Monkey). You'll be able to see the trickster humour and therefore respond better then.]
