"In this week's Journal, the information seemed to be saying that the intensity was not letting up much. I'm wondering, as we're in the first week of July, if you see any light at the end of this tunnel we're all in."
I can so relate to the desire to know WHEN we're going to be through the challenges. The first week of July, especially, has been a emotional rollercoaster for many, a time of fears and frustrations that is finally starting to smooth out a bit.
In my answer to the reader, I of course needed to tell her that so much depends on what is going on with our individual charts, as to when current challenges might resolve for each of us. In that sense, without seeing her chart, I could not tell her definitively when her specific issues would find resolution.
That being said, it does seem true that our trio of eclipses has lived up to their press packet, no matter what our natal charts may reveal. We have been challenged to rise above the fears and patterns of the past and to find new ways to approach the challenges before us. The Cardinal Grand Cross has both ignited our urgency for growth and change, and exposed the fears and patterns that have been blocking our progress.
When will we be "through the tunnel" and finally standing in the light on the other side? I think we have the opportunity to do that every day, in little if not big ways. Every time we find a new way to think about something that has caused us fear in the past, we come out of a tunnel. Every time we open our hearts to love where before we had resented or resisted, we gather more light around us.
And, as we come out of more tunnels and gather more light in all these smaller ways, the light grows brighter and brighter around us -- until, even when we're in a tunnel, working on yet one more issue, we both feel and know the light that surrounds us always.
