Closer or further…
Within the next 24 hours, the Saturn/Uranus trine will be exact. The last exact one was on May 19th, so it’s well worth thinking back to what was happening in your relationships at that time, including family, friends and work colleagues as well as with your significant other.
This planetary aspect challenges our beliefs, inviting us to let go of old ones and embrace new ones that resonate more accurately with the person we are now. Saturn demands that we put some effort into whatever it aspects and in this case the god of time and manifestation invites us to consider what our philosophy about relationships is built on and who, or what is it serving. William Glasser (1998) built ‘Choice Theory’ and ‘Reality Therapy’ on the basic precept that our beliefs and actions determine the quality of our relationships. Although I am not a follower of all of his theory, I like his suggestion that we ask ourselves at all times: ‘is what I am doing/saying, bringing me closer to someone, or creating a greater distance?’ Glasser (1998)
Today and tomorrow are ideal times to make a few notes about important relationships in our life over the years, particularly the ones that are gone. What difficulties led to an ending? What beliefs were those difficulties based on? Did those beliefs bring us closer, or create more distance in our relationships? What might we do differently in future relationships based on new beliefs? As always – no judgement on ourselves and others – we are doing the very best we can! MG. #SaturnUranus
