~ Update: Tips for Reading your Astro-Color Guidance ~
Today's Astro-Color Guidance channeled by the Color Oracle covers the time period between the date of posting and 12/21 when the next Solstice occurs. With the transition from Piscean to Aquarian Age nearly complete, understand you have now grown beyond your Sun Sign and embody basic traits of the Sign *following* the Sun Sign you were born under. You may now read the Astro-Colors as follows:
If you are a Taurus, read Gemini.
If you are a Libra, read Scorpio.
If you are a Capricorn, read Aquarius.
... and so on with all 12 Sun Signs.
~ Welcome to your New Aquarian Self! ~
~ ARIES ~
SUNFLOWER YELLOW: Aries, your keyword focus until 12/21 is ACCOUNTABILITY and your lesson is this: Think Before You Reveal, for in Revelation you may find: the accused stands innocent until proven guilty. Everyone knows you are a passionate advocate for Truth, however you must learn to respect others' requests and needs for privacy when your Truth-Telling Crusade has simply gone too far. Closed doors mean boundaries have been set. Disconnected friendships means you were a little too insensitive with the way you handled your 15 minutes of fame in the spotlight. A crucial lesson for you to learn is this: not all information is meant to be "outed", for you have forgotten this important fact: The Universe sees all, knows all, resolves all in the gentlest of ways. Aries, we understand you are a Warrior by nature, but you need to develop your ability to know when it's time to either step off the battlefield, or understand there was no battle there to begin with (you created it in your mind with your naturally aggressive approach). Practice Peaceful Negotiations, Compassion, and Humility, and the Universe will lessen the karmic lesson you have brought upon yourself. When the Spotlight is on you, remember: you, your intentions, and your credibility are being examined just as much as anyone else's. In the future you will remember: it is more important that you fight your own battles and address your own challenges than it is to prove your accusations toward another were "right." For the next 2 weeks, a peaceful approach is best, with a willingness to make apologies where necessary to those who were on the receiving end of your accidental abrasiveness.
~ TAURUS ~
RUBY RED: Taurus, you've been through a pivotal year of Spiritual and Intellectual Transformation, at times feeling a little ungrounded, spacy, unsure of your connection to the Divine, and even questioning the fundamental goodness of humanity. Ruby Red means it is now time for you to Narrow Your Focus to include only that which makes sense to you. In other words "Trim the Fat." In other words, start closing connections to people, places, and things which entered your life due to your own insatiable curiosity and proctastinative tendencies. Focus on what matters most, including the elements of your life you wish hadn't happened to you, or which you deem somehow unfair that you have to live and grow with. One specific event continues to be a source of latent frustration or anger for you: Root it out and resolve it once and for all. Your son, if you have one, will be your main focus for the remainder of the season. See where you might have slacked off a bit in carrying out your own parental duties to prevent a mishap with him from occurring earlier in the year. This is your mess to clean up, as there's no time left now to delay peaceful resolution. See where you might have overlooked other red flags in your life earlier this year which created the dilemma you how have to resolve... quickly.
~ GEMINI ~
AQUAMARINE: Gemini, for the next 2 weeks your Divine Directive is simple: Relax, expect lots of cancelled plans, and be willing to Go With the Flow as Holiday Schedules start to look and feel a little topsy-turvy. We know you love your Social Calendar to be full of people and fun events, but... others will have to cancel last-minute, leaving you with moments of spare time on your hands, wondering what to do next. Make these final days of the season about you, and in moments of not knowing how to fill free time, why not float about out in the world, following your own curiosity as a Butterfly explores a field of vibrant flowers. Notice, a few certain people in your Social Network are going thru some pretty heavy "stuff", and so they may not feel up to socializing as they normally do. Be flexible, go with the flow, try not to let cancelled plans play on your emotions or think a long-standing friendship is over. Remember, 2016 is a year of completion, and we are in the final weeks of a very long 9-year karmic cycle. Gemini, as usual, you are ahead of just about everyone in Spiritual Self-Development, so try to be patient as others slowly catch up to you. Stay future-focused and be willing to flow sideways to align with those who actually are available and willing to meet and socialize. Keep your thoughts elevated and your emotions positive, and you'll be set up for the Holidays with lights lit and bells on. At the end of this cycle, you'll find yourself more easy-going than ever, a relief to know that a few moments of spare time spent alone actually are a good thing.
~ CANCER ~
SILVER: Cancer, two weeks left to go in what was an emotionally taxing season for you, you learned about boundaries, and how breaching the boundaries of others can have a serious impact on your own peace of mind and personal reputation. Inappropriate connections you had to others have now been removed, although we know you like to collect people and call them family, this does not always resonate too well with others who simply cannot give you the nurturing attention and affection you were hoping to receive from them. Following your emotions has led to unintended consequences, while you need not view this as rejection, rather as re-alignment with people who are your own, true Soul-Family. Of all signs yours is considered the neediest, the most in need of a mother, the least inclined to give back in equal measure, and this you must learn to temper about yourself otherwise your transition into the Aquarian Age will be a rocky one (think of a fish stranded on a rocky seashore, and you will understand now others view your somewhat constant need for emotional reassurance and energetic "petting.") Silver appearing here means what you thought were adverse events, were actually Blessings in Disguise. You, of all signs, are also the most prone to depression and doom-and-gloom thinking. Did a Miracle just manifest for you? All depends on how you look at it. If you learn to bless your losses and reach forward toward new gains, you will have finally proven to the Universe you have outgrown your lifelong need for a mother, and have grown emotionally in leaps and bounds instead. Remember: You are made of Water, so clinging to an Electric Fence is not such a great idea at this time. If you were zapped by someone setting energetic and emotional boundaries with you recently, learn from it, in order that you may protect yourself from your own mistakes in the future.
~ LEO ~
BLUE: Leo, your personal Truths are being tested, will you compromise them again, this time around? Hopefully not. Your Truth is what you know to be right for you, your own validation of your own experience, in your own language. What matters now is that you begin to align with others who not only listen, but also validate your Truth without trying to re-interpret, re-hash, or revise it to meet their own level of understanding. In order for others to understand and embrace your Truth, a significant amount of explaining is necessary, which we know you find utterly tedious. Why should you have to explain what others should simply understand? Because they... have not been through what you have been through. Leo, you are a leader by nature, and in the job description of Leader is this: "one who is adept at leading others." If your back is always turned, others will either follow blindly, or drift away to someone who gives them more personalized attention. Blue also refers to a predominance of feminine energy in your life at this time, so see if you can go about resolving issues you have with women of mature age (25-45), including friends, significant others, colleagues, and strangers. Allow others time and space to absorb your Truth in order to interpret it in a way they understand, and most importantly, refrain from unleashing your legendary fury upon those who are new to your story.
~ VIRGO ~
ORCHID: Virgo, the thought of being alone used to terrify you... how can you possibly survive without standing in someone else's shadow? What if... you get blamed for something... big? The most energetically sensitive of all signs means you have a knack for skewing things way out of proportion, an expert in making mountains out of molehills and superheroes out of common thieves. Now that the inevitable has happened, being blamed for something someone else put you up to, you now understand the value of having an individual identity apart from a group, family, and even a significant other. Speaking your Truth for the first time in your life sounds like a rusty old squeezebox being played for the first time, although in time, you'll become more adept at speaking your Truth with grace rather than with a mouth full of sharpened knives. Your greatest lesson this season has been: the knives you throw at others return to you at full speed, so hopefully, you've learned to temper your critical voice a bit in order to soften the energy around you. Lost a few too many friends and followers on social media? That, right there, should be a clue-in for you. Criticism drives people away; honeyed sweetness will bring them back. Understand that life in a Transparent Universe can be a little stressful at times, and even you... make big, big mistakes on occasion like the rest of the world does. You might arrive at an understanding that it *is* best for you to hide in someone's shadow if accountability is just too tough for you to handle.
~ LIBRA ~
MINT GREEN: Libra, being the most cerebral of all signs and quite possibly the most social, now is a good time for you to stop lamenting the past and start dreaming up your ideal future all over again. You have by now learned that no relationship is ideal, no situation is entirely fair, nobody is perfect, and not all ideas mesh well with reality. So... where to go from here? Understand that there aren't as many people working against you as you previously thought. Along with a brilliant mind comes a tendency to turn your Intellectual prowess inward, against yourself, so you'll want to keep the self-reproach to a minimum as your life and social circle shifts and changes around you. Placing blame and finding reasons really is not necessary, in light of the fact that the Universe is in charge of everything, and others around you are exercising their Free Will whether you agree with their decisions or not. Was it fair what happened to you? Of course not. Was it the other person's fault? Not entirely, and it wasn't yours, either. Libra, until the 21st of December you'll want to work on letting go of the old habit you have of rationalizing everything, and instead embrace the idea that the Universe, at any given time, is actually an organized mess of chaos moving in slow but forward motion. The good news is: you didn't do anything wrong. You did the best you could with the skills you had at the time. Now, it's time to dream up your next Fantasy adventure, and get set to making it a reality!
~ SCORPIO ~
FOREST GREEN: Dear Scorpio, your dance with the Divine Masculine continues... have you noticed an unusual influx of masculine energy into your life this season? While everyone else exalts feminine ideals to the point of imbalance, your keen perception noticed something was quite amiss: specifically, it takes two polarities to co-create, not just one. So... why is the Divine Masculine left out in the cold? Through careful research, patient attention, and superior listening abilities, you now have the key to unlock secrets of the Divine Masculine which were previously unknown, or perhaps simply ignored by spiritual and non-spiritual folks alike. Why do Fathers "abandon" their families? Why do Husbands "cheat" on their wives? Why do Brothers "pick on" their siblings? What primal instincts drive men to do what they do, say what they say, and hide what they hide? You now harbor the sacred secrets of the Divine Masculine, Scorpio, and, most likely have learned this important Truth: the virtue which Divine Masculine exalts above all else is not Beauty, but Trustworthiness. Hold a space in your Heart for the Divine Masculine, and he will continue to offer his innate Loyalty and Protection to you in return. Look for sacred Trees to be an important part of your journey for the next 2 weeks, beyond the Solstice, and into the new year.
~ SAGITTARIUS ~
HOT PINK: Sag, you're feeling revved up and ready to go, excited and not knowing why, ready for something but you don't know what yet! That's o.k.... Hot Pink means your energy levels are surging, your natural Motivation levels are back to normal, and you finally have the energy to set out on yet another adventure to explore and discover something or someone entirely new. Jumping in your car and setting out for an unknown destination is so... you! You already know, Motion and Motivation need not have a specific purpose, because wherever you end up will be called "Here." Charge up your phone and bring an extra camera because we already know you'll either drop or lose one of them, and you'll want to document your next adventure for all your spiritual friends to see and admire. Sag, we're all happy to see you feeling back to your bright, happy-go-lucky self. Now, put on your favorite walking shoes and get ready to travel!
~ CAPRICORN ~
ORCHID: Capricorn, you are out of your element and forced to stand on your own two feet, either planned or unplanned, you now find yourself standing, or sitting, alone. Looking out for yourself in the past has brought you to this place of solitary refinement, understanding now that someone else's dreams do not necessarily include your own. The tables have turned, and your penchant for assuming an authoritarian stance over others is now being used against you. You may work independently, however, you must remember that you are not your own boss, as there is always someone to answer to for your successes as much as for your failures. Those around you are starting to believe you are not as blameless as you present yourself to be, and so, it is best for you to spend the next 2 weeks on your own soil, in your own element, and creating a world for yourself in which you won't be so entangled in others' needs, wants, and demands on your time. Use this time to re-evaluate who is demanding what, if you really can meet their laundry list of demands, or if perhaps it's better for you to remove yourself from the garden of someone else's life in favor of planting your own.
~ AQUARIUS ~
ORCHID: Aquarius! Like your Virgo and Capricorn brothers and sisters, Orchid means you are re-evaluating your relationships and deciding it might be best for you to identify as Single at this time. Being the most Intellectually Sensitive of all signs, you have learned that certain personalities overpower your own, and not all arguments can be won with polite speech. You have learned it is much easier to let others have their belief systems rather than trying to convert them to your own. Where you might have tripped up is in placing expectations upon others which were logical to you, but totally unrealistic to them. And so, the bridge you must learn to extend to others is that of Open Communication, with explanations to coincide with your expectations. Aquarius, you are the most forward-thinking of all signs, so you must remember to rein in your thoughts so others can keep up with you. Being too progressive will leave you feeling left out, although clearly you are ahead in shaping your own lifestyle values to fit the dawning Age of Aquarius. For the next two weeks, practice this one, simple rule: if you feel misunderstood, it means there is more explaining to be done. Be patient when others misunderstand... for truly, you are from another world!
~ PISCES ~
SALMON: Dear Pisces, Salmon appears to guide you through the final weeks of the season and the message is this: Be wary of setting personal goals so high, that you inadvertently create hardship for yourself in not being able to reach them. Strive for Balance rather than one-sided success, and be mindful of those who depend on you for nurturing and attention. Many elements of life and of your current situation are not fully in your control, and after a month of Soul-Searching, you are realizing that your life is not perfect and neither is anyone else's. Your lesson is to *see* that you have access to a never-ending supply of Abundance which manifests in countless forms, especially when encountering a few unexpected twists and turns along the journey of your life. This last month for you has been an emotional one Pisces, but ultimately, Salmon means you *are* moving in the right direction to accomplishing one of your most cherished goals. Remember to Trust in the infinite supply of the Universe, even if you ease off a bit from striving to achieve at work, you'll still have access to all that you need at any given time. Next month you'll see more clearly the fruits of your labors, and how well you achieved your goals despite any seeming setbacks you experienced in this important karmic year.
