higher-consciousness

When you learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy – if you are aware of all of that in yourself, without any choice, that is part of meditation.
—  Krishnamurti
Sun in the Astrological Houses

Your sense of identity & purpose is directly related to: 

 ☼ Sun in the 1st House: Your behavior, personal concerns, interests and style. Your Self-image is a main theme in your life, so you’re very careful and/or self-conscious when it comes to projecting yourself. 
☼ Sun in the 2nd House:  What you’re able to maintain, build or achieve (esp. materially). Security is a main theme in your life, so you may be overly possessive, materialistic or eternally unsatisfied.
☼ Sun in the 3rd House: Your communication skills and your ability to understand concepts, ideas and people’s behaviors. Your mental abilities and intelligence are part of who you fundamentally are.
☼ Sun in the 4th House: Your private life, home (literal or not) and your roots. Personal fulfillment comes as you lay foundations and form bonds. You feel complete when you know where you belong.
☼ Sun in the 5th House: Your unique qualities and ability to demonstrate them. You need an outlet for your personal potential and thus strive to express yourself creatively and freely.
☼ Sun in the 6th House: Your daily work, to being busy and productive, organizing and fixing things, and not wasting your time. Being useful and efficient is part of who you are, just like helping others.
☼ Sun in the 7th House: Your partnerships and relationships, so you may care too much about how others feel about you. You dislike being alone, and you enjoy life better when you’re with other people. 
☼ Sun in the 8th House: Your experiences, discoveries and the fulfillment of your deepest desires, but also to the grasp you have on your inner hidden self. You’re anything but superficial.
☼ Sun in the 9th House: Your thirst for learning as your desire to get in touch with the different, the foreign and unknown helps you attaining higher consciousness, the truth and pure knowledge.
☼ Sun in the 10th House: Your public image, your social position and recognition. You seek personal fulfillment above all, and achieving your goals is of the utmost importance.
☼ Sun in the 11th House: Your connections and groups you fit in, but also to your hopes for this world and personal dreams. You feel complete among like-minded people in terms of interests/goals/ideals, but you praise diversity and tend to avoid bias.
☼ Sun in the 12th House: Your inner world, but you fear expressing it, so you hide. You’re highly introspective and your will is directed inwards making you feel isolated and passive. You daydream away your life.

I spent a portion of my afternoon blissfully meditating to the sound of pouring rain and catching the occasional flash of lightning 💓
