Mercury and Mars are currently both retrograde, making this a great time to focus on introspection, inner work and the resulting awareness and insights for taking action when the time is right. Initiating physical action this week could leave you singing with Mick Jagger, “I can’t get no satisfaction”. (Mercury turns direct May 22nd and Mars on June 29th)
Also, energy is building toward a New Moon this Friday at 16 degrees Taurus (3:29pm EDT). This stimulates focus on personal resources, money and possessions, who and what we value, our creativity and our sense of self-worth. The stage is definitely set for inner work on these things.
This Taurus New Moon forms a grand earth trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Take time to be outside, sit on the ground and let your electromagnetic energies balance, get in rhythm with the earth, dig your toes into the dirt, feel and breathe deeply these grounding energies. We need the added stability as we face changes and uncertainties that are going on personally and globally.
Don’t want to repeat the past? Identify the limiting pattern. Don’t rationalize it. Interrupt it. Break it! Let it go and start fresh.
Have the courage to listen within. Honor your higher guidance to say “no” when you’re heart says “no” and “yes” when your heart sings “yes”.
After all, life is an adventure.
The energies we experience this week may feel deeply personal as we are pushed to acknowledge aspects that are beyond our control. Power and control are not the same thing and the energy present is guiding us to embrace one and release the other. Releasing, setting free, letting go and clearing space to make room for what’s next, is an important theme at this time. You may notice a strong guidance to break free of old limiting beliefs, unproductive childhood conditioning and restrictive relationships. We are experiencing a drive to acknowledge the true from the false and fully express the powerful truth of who we are. Internally and/or externally this week, we’ll notice that the feminine and masculine are not seeing eye to eye. Its not competition that brings progress but rather coherence, a working together in supportive, laser like focus.
The energy building toward our Full Moon in Scorpio, which is down right intense this week, may take some of us through dark and difficult experiences. But setting intentions for renewal, transformation and soul growth we can rise from the ashes with newness and strength like a Phoenix.
People’s opinions and criticisms are often hard to take. But stepping back from the emotional charge of taking things personally, enables us to stay in our power, discern truth or insights that prove useful, and continue to confidently contribute from our higher happier purposeful self.
Our creative Source is Love and we are made in this likeness. Many of us don’t realize or maybe don’t remember that Love is our core nature and life force. However, we are sentient compassionate beings who came here with great purpose and carry great worth.
Our current New Moon in Aquarius ushers in a cycle of taking risks to introduce or embrace new ideas and innovations. This includes walking our own unique path in life. As individuals our gifts, our ability to care about each other and to think outside the box is needed, and as a collective we can co-create a sustainable, abundant and joyful life for ourselves and future generations.
Of course, we have reasons to dwell on loss, disappointments and limitations of the past but it is debilitating and enslaving. Each of us is being challenged in many areas of life to sustain our emotional balance, compassion and hope. We will be called to rise to higher levels of our own spiritual nature as we focus on practical, progressive solutions.
Wishing you Peace, Joy and loads of Blessings! Have you noticed a little more craziness this week thrown in with the normal holiday activity? The energy is always powerful spiritually, emotionally and physically at Christmas. Add to that the energy building all week toward a Full Moon in Cancer; feeling, family and security oriented which will peak Friday, Christmas Day. At the time of Full Moons we all seem to be rather full of ourselves. Also, Uranus (symbolizing “expect the unexpected”) has been making its station (energy building and magnifying) and goes direct on, you guessed it, Christmas Day. All of these energies are blending together like ingredients in a fine meal to be shared by many. Coming from a sense of adventure and holding to the Light of Love will enable us to embrace the inspiration that unfolds instead of participating in squabbles and drama.
The head can go round and round. But your open heart knows you, loves you, holds peace and dances with joy. So get out of your head, give worry the day off and dance to your own kind of music. Its balancing and healing.
We each have a very deep and powerful intuitive energy and when we know how to tune into it, we gain access to our authentic inner truth. Its not found in circles and circles of thinking. We begin to find it by listening to the core of our being, feeling our music and rhythm, the voice of our soul.
You know you are made of skin, bone, blood and muscle, what you see and touch.
The key is to remember you are also made of Light, which is your life force of love, healing and expanded abilities.
The more you acknowledge and embrace this about yourself, the more your DNA lights up with connections, you resonate with higher frequencies and break through limitations.
What an adventure!
