Today’s Oracle takes us to the Aquarius weekly for Nov. 13, 2009
This is a beautiful time for a crisis of faith. While you’re in there, consider what, exactly, you feel moved to have faith in. We usually associate faith with God. Yet we do so with no tangible concept of what God is, which gives us a foggy concept of what faith is about. Your current situation is more personal, or needs to be. You’re not being called upon to have faith in something outside yourself, but it’s not strictly about you, either. What you are looking for is an intersection where your purpose connects to a larger purpose; where faith in yourself is akin to faith in a creative force that is at once contained within you and greater than you.
The Daily Oracle offers a horoscope selected randomly by our Intelligent Archive Oracle program, unique to Planet Waves. It’s also a database of my horoscopes going back to the late 1990s. You can use the Intelligent Archive Oracle to answer questions and give you ideas for how to handle problems and situations you cannot see through. This feature is available to our All Access and Core Community members. See this link for more information.
Ha — I’d say that my current crisis of faith is in the creative process of the play I’m in. Traditionally, most of us actors are of the “It will all come together by show time” mindset, no matter how rehearsals are going. At the moment, though, we’re all pretty exhausted — mentally, emotionally and physically — with no day off in sight until after our opening weekend. So I’m feeling more hesitant than usual about opening night, since I know there’s no real opportunity to recover and center myself — at least, not by my usual standards.
So, the intersection where “faith in yourself is akin to faith in a creative force that is at once contained within you and greater than you” sounds about right, however elusive it was feeling last night.
