Daily NVC-Based Astrology Reading
For today, Tuesday, February 28, 2017, the major aspect is the Moon conjunct Venus in Aries. Moon conjunct Venus is generally considered a favorable alignment, however, we’ve had some challenging alignments recently with an on-going T-square involving Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter. We’ve seen this manifesting in the difficult political climate since the election, and you may see it manifesting in your personal relationships as well. Adding Mars, the warrior-god, to the mix hasn’t helped, so it’s possible that the Moon conjunct Venus could help soothe troubled waters.
From an NVC perspective, the most important things to consider in any given situation are our feelings and needs. Today I pulled two sets of grok cards. One set indicates needs met, the other needs unmet. If the recent Mars injection to the T-square led to a situation where you were triggered and spoke violently, then today you may be feeling ashamed and regretful. Consider what needs were unmet that may have triggered your violent response. Often what we’re needing when we’re triggered is acknowledgement.
I am delighted to be part of an introductory foundations class in Compassionate Communication, also known as Nonviolent Communication, ideal for people new to compassionate communication (NVC) workshops, and great for practitioners who want to deepen their existing NVC skills and consciousness. We invite you to join us as we explore this powerful communication technique.
The class follows Marshall Rosenberg’s seminal book Nonviolent Communication: A Language Of Life, and will focus on:
* Making clear observations.
* Honestly expressing feelings.
* Deeply meeting needs.
* Making doable requests.
* The power of empathy.
* Each class will include physical movement
(kinesthetic) activities and there will be time practice applying the techniques to real-life situations.
The Essentials of Compassionate Communication:
Here is a list of some of the main skills involved in Compassionate Communication.
1) Making an Observation without evaluation
2) Owning and Expressing Feelings authentically
3) Identifying the met and unmet Needs based on the feelings
4) Making a clear, specific, and doable Request to meet a need
5) Giving Reflection and Empathy to another person before responding to them.
