The last few days I have felt an Urgent need to fulfill my purpose. Am I doing it? Is it working? Why am I still in the same rut I was when I last wrote about how to find your purpose? I’d like to take a closer look at this urgency through the lens of astrology. It’s a perfect metaphor for diving deeper into self.
Some of this urgency is colored by the recent full moon in Aries — a sign that is all about acting on impulse — Aries is the beginning of spring and the impulse to be outside and run through the fields without wearing shoes — or maybe you’ll do it nude — who cares if anyone is watching?
But purpose — purpose seems to be harder for us to fulfill than it is to identify an impulse — or could that impulse have hidden within it the seed of purpose wanting to fulfill and express itself into the world?
In astrology, the Sun sign you were born under is your purpose in this life. It is the energy you came here to express – and we can use the Sun and your Sun sign as a metaphor to help explain this.
The Sun is composed of extremely hot gases of up to 10,000 degrees F and its main purpose is to support all life. The gases intermingle with one another to generate energy that then work its way to the surface. This energy provides light so we can see all that we can’t see when it’s dark. The Sun also sustains life through mingling with plants and trees to create photosynthesis. Just as the Sun fulfills its purpose through nature — we individuals fulfill our purpose in a similar fashion — how we express that light will effect those we come into contact with — to assist in the well-being and growth of every individual.
So, the light that shines from you is how you shine your light out in the world. This light will be at the backdrop of all that you are –
Depending on other factors in your chart — aspects, house and element placements — there may be blocks to expressing that energy — which is all about the lessons we’ve come here to learn —
Back to this urgency of purpose expressing itself — this urgency feels like an impulse — an impulse that a flower bud has right before it is about to burst open — it wants to flower and the petals are stuck —
Is this stuck feeling a sign that you are not ready to blossom? Or is it that you have been so ready and the stuck feeling is that you haven’t done much about it?
No matter what, your purpose is always shining through — you can’t help but express it in all you do —
How does your Sun express itself?
