This symbol is illuminated 5:36 PM EDT Aug 14 (9:36 AM GMT, Aug 14)
Inspiration: Riding bareback is likened unto acrobatic balance maintaining a seat of power.
Today: Riding a horse is an archaic image of power, harmony and balance.
The powerful horse has its own way of moving. Riding bareback requires connecting with horse… establishing a harmony of motion. Because the position connects the spines of horse and rider… seat to back, the seat of power… it is crucial to master balance.
There is also an acrobatic aspect to the bareback rider. Leaping on and off, bouncing up and down, using all limbs to keep communication and connection with the horse. Therefore watch for changeable dynamics… changing one's mind, one's mood, one's whole course of action.
If you have experienced extremes of success and disappointment over the last three days, the object is to find balance. It is as if you are getting back on your horse with a renewed sense of how to ride after having fallen off recently.
Like riding a bicycle… once you know how, you never forget… you can re-address a situation or task. it may lead to a quick change of mind as to how to proceed, but a sense of feeling balance will guide your decisions.
