I love mysteries.

Not mystery books. I'm talking about life's real
puzzles.

It's powerful to contemplate the heavens and
grasp the enormity of the universe. We tend
to go along, head down, minding our own business and
struggling with the minutiae of our lives. To pause,
look up and peruse the star-studded sky is a reminder
of the insignificance of so many of our worries.

We need to pause more often, and we need to remind
ourselves repeatedly that the little things that ruin our
day are really little things.

This is a good week for musing on the cosmos. We're
looking at a harmonic concordance starting
tomorrow.

But that's not all. There's a lunar eclipse occuring at
the same time. A lunar ecclipse usually occurs only
twice a year, and every time it happens, it's enough to
get hearts racing and telescopes focusing.

Therefore, this unusual combination is immensely
important if you follow astrology. It's causing
major excitement and anticipation around the world.

Six heavenly bodies are lining up to form a grand sextile
Star-of-David shape. The sun, moon, Jupiter, Mars,
Saturn and Chiron will be symmetrically situated in a
series of 60 degree triangles. It's remarkable in its
perfection.

Anytime a trine, or triangle, pattern is formed
by planets, it is considered by astrologers to indicate a
period of unobstructed flow of energy. This weekend,
there are two trines forming--one is in the
earth element, signifying the realistic and practical, and
the other is in the water element, representing
compassion and imagination. Consequently, this is
considered an ideal combination of energy flow,
resulting in a profound integration of consciousness.

Our planet could use one of those right now, so I'm kind
of excited about it. It gives me something to think
about.

It gives me hope.

It's impossible to look at the night sky without
wondering how it all came to be. It doesn't matter
what particular spirituality you honor--those stars fill
each of us with a sense of the possible, the
unknowable, the mysterious.

Albert Einstein, my favorite swimsuit model (visit http://www.mentalfloss.com), said:
"The fairest thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands
at the cradle of true art and true science.

Celebrate the mysterious this weekend--whatever that
means to you. Look at the stars. Wonder. And hope.

That's what humans do best.

"...perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens
for one who desires to see it, and having seen it,
to find one in himself."
Plato
