"Be Kind For Everyone You Meet Is Fighting A Hard Battle." This quote from Plato, the most well-known Greek philosopher of ancient times, has appeared in my orbit a few times lately.
I thought of subbing "hard transit" for hard battle, with so many facing major life challenges now. I've had Saturn riding my Mars for awhile, and see it playing out with an actual antagonist, looking to bring pressure on us using local authorities, as I've written in a previous post. Most of the action so far, with Saturn being in Libra, has been relatively respectful, and luckily, we have allies.
I don't like sweeping statements about the trends, but with Uranus in fighting Aries in square to Pluto, there are battles brewing or in progress, on many fronts, large and small, local and global. There can be a lot of raw, trial and error with Aries. And being kind, can mean stepping back and giving someone space to find their own way.
The photo of the week comes from CLUC with the caption, "Human being and universe: Any answer from somewhere ?" What I've noticed in my own battles, is that there's the questioning of why or how, to god/goddess or however you experience the greater force. The dialogue with spirit can be a lifeline, as answers to questions do come -- through impulses, dreams, serendipity.
