Thanksgiving 2012: A Wellspring of Gratitude

Thanksgiving 2012: A Wellspring of Gratitude
The astrology of this year’s Thanksgiving inspires a day when we can more readily connect to a wellspring of gratitude in our quest to give thanks. That’s because Neptune, the planet of compassion and heart-centered understanding, is quite strong on this day. It squares the luminous Sun, forming a harmonious trine with love planet, Venus.

Neptune dissolves boundaries and can make us overly sensitive to those around us. Holidays themselves usually elicit many powerful feelings. And with Neptune radiating strongly, there’s a greater potential for our taking on feelings of low-level anxiety, notably the type where we can’t really pinpoint the source. If that’s the case for you, consider Aspen flower essence, which helps to instill calm and provide protection for a sensitive heart.

With Neptune instilling a sense of blurriness -- and also being the planet ruling alcohol -- we may find ourselves tending towards having one too many. So that a potential hangover doesn’t have Black Friday taking on a whole new meaning for you, consider these wellness strategies. Drink one glass of water for each alcoholic drink you enjoy. And if you still feel a bit under-the-weather on the morning after, consider a natural hangover remedy such as umeboshi plum or nux vomica homeopathic. Massaging the arch of your right foot, the place that connects to the liver, can also be helpful.

Another planet that is particularly strong on Thanksgiving this year is Uranus, which squares warrior Mars. This may lead to a sense of assertiveness expressed by either you or others that seems to have emerged from out of left field. Expecting the unexpected is a great Rx for this day. And if today’s electrically charged energy seems disquieting, a general stress-reducing panacea, like the flower essence blend Rescue Remedy, may be a great go-to.

By being aware of the strong astrological energies during Thanksgiving and arming yourself with supportive wellness strategies, you may find a deeper sense of peace as you connect with all that you’re grateful for in life.
