Caution! Negative thinking is dangerous to your health!
Mercury in Aries has been creating a veritable rush of mental activity. But Saturn in Libra is throwing a shadow across your path right now. Whether you just got some bad news, or someone in authority is challenging your point of view, your real challenge is to stay calm, centered and alert.
If something or someone is challenging your progress, it is not to make you stop; it is to make you stop and THINK. One of the most sublime gifts of your mind is its adaptability, so use it. The mind is not a blunt instrument; your mind is a subtle vehicle that can lead you to a greater awareness.
You might believe that your only option is either dig in, push back and win OR give in, surrender and retreat. But you always have a "third way". Remember, it is not about winning or losing... the way of the spirit is about understanding.
Use this challenge to re-examine your assumptions as well as help one another to see your positions more objectively. By combining, contrasting and working your thoughts together you move towards a greater understanding; by walking the middle path, you raise one another's consciousness, which is the actual goal!
Remember, the word "consciousness" means literally "together knowing". You, on your own, can only understand so much. But when two or more work toward a common understanding, when you truly look within and listen without, that is when "mind magic" happens.
