Saturn in Sagittarius has been in close aspect to the Sun the past week, urging us to take responsibility for communicating our deep inner truth and integrity; our beliefs can no longer be ignored. We have to be committed to living them and expressing them. And to discern to what we want to be focused and committed too, or to what we are no longer prepared to commit. We may suddenly be confronted with the truth of a situation.
With Mercury conjoined to Pluto who is often known for speaking the truth in an often blunt and direct way, we need to become aware of HOW we communicate our needs and truths and take responsibility for what we say. Most arguments are not caused by WHAT is said but by HOW they are said. We are being reminded of the power of words.

The following is taken from The Four Agreements
by Don Miguel Ruiz

2. Don’t take anything personally.
“Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”
3. Don’t make assumptions.
“Don’t Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.”
4. Always do your best.
“Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.”
