This rare transit increases our spiritual angst and permits us to contemplate matters of the spirit more deeply than ever before. At this time, we are questioning, seeking new ways of thinking about our spiritual welfare; ignoring this important part of ourselves wont work anymore. We must do something about it.
This type of honest questioning and persistence can bring about increased consciousness to our behavior and to our understanding of the nonphysical world. However, the danger is that we may not be very grounded; we can actually be in quite a bit of denial, for a while, anyway. Once this transit is over, the reality weve been ignoring for weeks will once again intrude into our lives. Remember, denial is bliss...for a while, anyway. Avoid making important financial decisions at this time, and beware of opportunities that seem too good to be true. Our judgment is not perfect right now and all that glitters is not gold. This is not the time to take risks. The urge to escape can be very strong during this transit. Direct this toward creative endeavors, or at least activities that are not potentially harmful.
