What’s the big deal about Eclipses and retrogrades?

What’s the big deal about Eclipses and retrogrades

 

While the Universe is always spinning and moving, transits coming and going, alignments shifting, there are certain phases the Universe goes through that simply don’t feel comfortable for us individually and sometimes universally for humans.

Some of it can be understood by looking at a natal chart. We were born under particular cosmic circumstances and that can help us understand why we are here they way we are. But depending on the healing we need which is based on our choices and life events, some cosmic alignments leave us feeling run over. The Universe is always shifting though, that energy will pass.

For the outer planets, the planets furthest from our sun, their retrograde periods can last for 6 months. When Pluto retrogrades, being the furthest planet from the Sun, it does for the longest period of time, about 6 months. We literally spend 6 months of every year tuning and returning into our shadow selves. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere is ironically happens in the Spring and Summer.

There are two times a year when multiple transits, aspects, and energies converge. Those times are called Eclipse seasons. During Eclipse season there are usually a few planets in retrograde, Super new moons, Super Full Moons, and of course the Eclipses themselves. With multiple energy flows flowing a little different than “usual”, we can easily become ungrounded, feel unwell for “no reason”, or wonder why the world suddenly seemed to go crazy.

While every month the moon affects humans and animals, the whole experience during Eclipse season is magnified and amplified for a longer period of time than the three days around any given full moon. What’s more, in that any given month that isn’t in Eclipse season, we usually get a break in the seemingly “chaotic” energy. Eclipse season doesn’t always give us a chance to catch our breath or a vacation from the crazy.

 

I would like to point out that the Universe isn’t really doing this “to” us. The Universe isn’t really your friend, it can’t really be personified. Instead, the Universe is best and truest mirror into where you are. When the “crazies” come knocking, we nothing has changed per say, but our awareness and consciousness has been filtered and directed by incoming astrological frequency.

Normal everyday occurrences can suddenly sound and feel discordant. Relationships with others can seem flat or out of tune. The thing to really remember is that EVERYONE is experiencing this all at the same times in their own way. It doesn’t mean your spouse will feel the same flatness in the relationship you are experiencing though. Because of their birth alignment and life karma, they may be honing in on a flatness somewhere else in their life and reacting to that.

While everyone experiences the Eclipse energy and all cosmic energy individually, there are some general truths that we can all agree with about these intense times.

1. Eclipses are times of great personal change. What feels off, flat, or not working well anymore during an Eclipse season is something we are going to be called to make some decisions about. Putting off making those decisions or taking action on what comes up during an Eclipse means that we are in resistance to some deeper truth that’s trying to come through. That resistance, while it might seem logical to avoid stirring pots or rocking boats, is going to feel like a struggle.

2. Because all emotions are a form of intuition, all emotions are actually leading us back to center. It’s resistance or pain avoidance that usually gums up the works. The more we can be aware of where we are putting some hard stops on the ideas coming through, the easier energy begins to work in your life. This doesn’t all ideas have to be acted upon, only that we have to know why something is a real no and if we are resisting a choice or acting out of our intuition that something is a real no-go for you.

3. While change can be hard and stressful, change is ultimately what is needed for a breakthrough. And most of the change that leads to breakthroughs doesn’t happen within your comfort zone or necessarily go according to all the little neat rules you’ve decided are real in life. The Universe doesn’t reward you for being good, following rules, or acting like a martyr. Your choices bring you your rewards, the Universe reflects back the energy of our choices/actions and the emotions behind why we made them.

4. Within the confluence of energies that come together in any particular eclipse, there are going to be some truths about the world and how it actually works that get highlighted in your life. Getting into alignment with those truths is vital to our experience of ease during these times, even if it means letting go of some long-held beliefs…like, say the belief “the universe cares that I am a good person” or even “the universe owes me”.

5. Getting into that kind of alignment can be one of the most healing and freeing experiences you can have. When we come into closer alignment with how the Universe is really working and operating in your lives, we understand how to be co-creators with it with more clarity and ease.

How to know if you need some boundary work

Do you even have any idea what your boundaries are?

 

For Empaths and Intuitives, sometimes boundaries can be a tricky issue.  If you are stuck in caregiver, fix-it, or ultimate healer mode, then most likely your boundaries can use some strengthening. 

For me boundaries are the edges of our comfort zone, the space where our natural resilience or place of power rests. When we go through a dark night, period of low vibe, or even depression, our boundaries are going to be low as well. We won't have the natural buffer or tolerance for tackling challenges. But when are feeling good, flowing, and high-vibe, we can take more on and get more stuff down. Boundaries are directly related to how we feel!

Here are some common misconceptions about boundaries:

  • They are static, never changing: We change our minds and hearts many times in life. Our boundaries and comfort zones changes as we do. What might be a real problem for us, can see easy-peasey to deal with in our 30's. 
  • There is always one fixed boundary to hold: That is an ideal, not reality. Each day we wake in new situations, new energies, new circumstances. We can't expect our boundaries to always be in the same place, much like we can't always count on our emotions being in the same place. We have to learn to lean to what feels flowing and comfortable each day, and seek to expand a little outside our comfort zone when we're feeling a little contracted or it feels like our energy has shrunk.
  • Boundaries keep us safe: This is much like thinking a magick wall or bubble of energy will actually stop bad guys from hurting us. It doesn't work like that on this physical plane. Boundaries, like our emotions are signal for when we are in and out of comfort zone, no more, no less. It's important information to have, but it's not all that a lot of books about psychic protection make it out to be. 

Here are some quick tips to know if you need boundary work!!

How to know if you need more boundary work

 

You need boundary work if:

You feel overwhelmed

You need boundary work if:

You feel rushed or pushed to make a decision or response.

You need boundary work if:

You feel attacked, defensive, like someone is trying to blame, judge, or push their energy or opinion on you.

How to work with your boundaries:

  1. Recognize you are getting some boundaries signals.
  2. Identify what is being triggered in you, what emotions are you mirroring? What is the cause or fear you or the other person is reaction?
  3. Ask yourself whether you agree or disagree with the line of thought, conclusion, or judgment. Is the fear based on any facts whatsoever?
  4. Give their fear love, give yourself love, and bless the situation around their fear. Remember it might not be yours to fix, but if you can show them you understand their fear, you can usually diffuse the knee-jerk reaction taking place.

expand your boundaries

 

This technique works because it raises our vibe and keeps us from absorbing the other person's emotions, reality, and/or fear. Our boundaries get triggered because we feel we are about to lose something, our time, our energy, our sense of comfort. Most times we have a knee jerk reaction to that kind of thing. But if we can come into awareness about what is happening, we can center back into our comfort zone and start to expand our boundaries so we can handle more. Being able to receive more in life is one of the keys to manifestation that can accelerate your dreams!!!

Weekly Stars and Cards Reading: September 25th, 2017: Invoke your destiny

weekly stars and cards: Invoke your destiny

Last week was action-filled, this week we can take a breather....thank the Gods!!

Happy Belated Mabon!!

The Goddess Sige comes forward this week to remind us to that sometimes quiet, silence, and stillness are needed in order to move forward and grow. Sige is aspect of the Divine that represents the cosmic void or cosmic egg, a space at the center of the heart of the Universe where everything and nothing exists and is possible. It's  space without duality or the tension that duality brings. Where everything has it's truth and existence while also not really meaning anything on it's own. It's a reflection that only in our One-ness are we complete and whole. This theme will come more prominent as we come to Thrusday when Pluto goes direct and we are finally able to stop rehashing all the old patterns that have kept our internal static blaring.

Once we only have Chiron, the healer, in retrograde, we're going to be able to finally release and move more freely. We'll be able to "Wash away your burdens" as the Messenger Oracle card suggests and enjoy the "Harvest" energies as the Green Witch tarot reminds us.

I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to some quietly flowing momentum. This past Eclipse season stirred up so much in my life, that I feel like I've been "winging it" for the past two months. I am really going to appreciate some ground time this week, the slower pace, and the dreams and intuitive high-tide that's coming beginning this week and into October!! The Enchanted map deck, reminds us to try and "Go with the Flow", as the Universe is really here to support us and will be listening closely to what we say we want and need this week!

Some crystals to help you focus your energy this week could be:

  • Aquamarine – this soothing crystal helps you to let go and move past anger, fear, old wounds and emotional patterns. It helps you to detach and clear the clutter within your mind, bringing clarity of the mind.
  • Citrine – this sunny stone helps you to develop a positive attitude. It encourages you to go with the flow and let go of anything from the past that is making you unhappy. It promotes the enjoyment of new things and experiences.
  • Smoky Quartz – this powerful crystal helps you to let go of old patterns and belief systems that are holding you back from achieving your full potential.

Useful internal work for the week:

 

Getting real focused on what really matters to you and what role you want to play in your life situations: As we are transitioning into a sweeter energy we might have some rough points as the energy settles. But things are settling out, we will be able to make greater strides in our consistency and building a new routine. Use some of these transition days as practice how to you up-level your life! Speak what you actually, really need and want right now! The Universe is listening!

Weekly Guidance: Sept. 18th, 2017: We have this guidance for a reason. We owe it to ourselves to see where this takes us.

weekly guidance sept 18th

Action, action, action is the theme this week. It's not so much that we'll be forced into action, it's that the light will suddenly feel like it's been switched on.

If you are still feeling down on yourself, this could be a challenging week. But we have to learn to being to shift the feelings that are blocking us from moving forward. There will never be a time more perfect than now to begin something, and as far as the stars are concerned, take that literally. I know it can sound platitudnal for me to tell you that the now moment is perfect.I know that might a thousand reasons why it doesn't FEEL perfect. 

Maybe your house is being foreclosed on or was damaged in the recent disaster. Maybe you are coming to  a new level of truth about your relationship needs and what you've settling for all along. Maybe you are starting a new work journey. Those things can shake you, but the don't have to stop you. If fact, they can be soul-aligning catalysts.  It's never about faking it till you make it or ignoring your more negative feelings. Learning to shift those bigger fears are about learning to love yourself through the process of meeting your fear and acting from your heart and intuition anyway. 7 of Pentacles (from the Green Witch tarot), just like we had last week, urges us to keep moving, keep growing, and to work our guidance and ideas.

It's saying:

"I see that fear lurking, i know it's scary. But let's take the next step anyway. We got this guidance for a reason. We owe it to ourselves to see where this takes us."

Breathe, center, listen, and act. None of this actually has to be hard. We'll have a master 22 day and some Venus and Uranus action this week opening up our ability to act from our center and begins something new. Aphrodite (from the Goddess Guidance Oracle deck), is reminding us to nourish our souls and inner-trust.

This weekend is looking like a blissful balm to these past few weeks with Equinox happening. So take advantage of the energies coming through this week. Stop and listen and love what you are hearing, and let your inner compass tune to you where you CAN go (Inner compass card from the Enchanted Map deck)!

Some crystals to help you focus your energy this week could be:

Aquamarine (for clarity and soothing feelings),

Carnelian (to bring us into our joy and one-ness),

Fluorite (to help you strengthen your spirit "listening" and open your channels more).

 

Useful internal work for the week:

Gratitude. In the midst of all the clean up and settling out from the hurricanes, earthquakes, and other chaos this week is an excellent time to give BIG thanks for simply being alive, having homes or safe places to be, and for the chance to make things better. 

Taking inspired action this week, could well be in-line with the theme of this month, blossoming. With so much help needed in the world and especially the US right now, we could very well easily find a way to serve that is greatly fulfilling and serving the greater good. Pay attention to how you feel called to help this week!

Why can’t I trust my intuition??

Why can't I trust my intuition

Our bodies are amazing. We contain two opposing forces, Intuition and ego, the balance of which ensure we take the best action possible for our survival and growth.

....As long as we're coming from our balance of wholeness as integrated beings.

If  we're out of balance with our wholeness, ego and fear are going to:

  • Stop you in you tracks with analysis paralysis and confusion over details and "how" questions.
  • Distract you from the real work and healing that is needed.
  • Delay everything you've been trying to work for and manifest.

And you probably won't even realize that's what's happening because it will feel like:

  • Your doubts and confusion are justified.
  • You did the "next logical step", basically what everyone else does, and you can put your faith in following the herd and gaggles of teachers out there.
  • There is just something wrong with you, that you can't get the with program, stop being so sensitive, or that you can never seem to toughen up enough to make real head way.

 

But that is exactly when and why you need to put your integrated, whole, lightworker-self first.

Here's how I got Fiercely Sensitive and started really standing in my own light!!

Because the "next logical step" might only be logical for you if you are approaching it from a place of abundance, instead of fear or desperation.

Because maybe the Universe is waiting on your to take inspired action before the next step in the plan will even make sense or get delivered to you.

Because maybe you need to be deep in your power, confidence, self-value, and guidance to make the next step work.

 

 

 

 

Because maybe being fierce and going after your your dreams REQUIRES your tender, compassionate, whole heart...your authentic sensitivity.

We are not meant to live solely in ego or fear. Nor are meant to live solely in the spiritual high of being in-tune with guidance and soul. We need to become integrated beings who can:

  • Trust guidance and intuition, who can act on inspired action and grow into the results we wish to manifest.
  • Curate our thoughts and beliefs to maintain our vibration and energy levels.
  • Let our fierce open-heart lead.

 

Staying in the patterns of Intuition hit or miss, mistrust, or frustration from trying to decipher every exacting detail of an intuitive hit is going to keep you in fear. It cannot solve the trust problems. Only taking a leap and creating inspired action can bring us the proof we seek.  There is never a perfect time, perfect place in life in which to begin this level of trusting, other than the only time we have...right now. 

 

None of this requires hours upon hours of meditation, years of healing and therapy, or beating yourself up. 

 

All that being Fiercely Sensitive actually requires is being okay within yourself in this moment, to say "I hear you, keep talking..." to Spirit.

Weekly Guidance: September 10th, 2017: Listen for spirit on a deeper level

weekly guidance sept 1017 listen for spirit on a deeper level

This week the planets are going to be giving us a bit of refresher on all the insights about who want to become and where we want to go that came to us during the Eclipse season. We are still in the shadow of Merc. retro so this isn't a perfectly green light situation, this is more a "get, get set...." week, where we further align to those new possibilities. 

The cards Coventina, Love without Condition, 7 of pents, reminds us of the bigger work that needs to come forward this week. With so much tragedy, trauma and drama this past week we all need to give ourselves and others space to release and recover.  Create sacred time and space can help people do just that. Even if it's simply dedicating a little more time this week to really deeply listening to someone while they do some releasing, we can still keep it sacred for ourselves by honoring our role as witness to those who are in suffering.

And, of course, when two or more are gathered, the magick of Spirit is present and greater healing can occur. 

This weekend is looking like a blissful balm to these past few weeks, so take advantage of the energies coming through this week. Stop and listen and love what you are hearing!

  • Finding smarter ways to help more people. There is going to be a lot of people in need of help this week, and we can't help everyone, get burned out, and crash.

September month and Weekly Guidance: August 28th, 2017: Dream big and take big action. The Universe wants to rise to meet you!

Weekly Guidance: Dream big and take big action.

Feeling better now that Saturn is stationed direct in Sagittarius?

I know I am. Now that Saturn is moving direct in Sagittarius again, I feel like things can flow again with getting too weird or out there with random crazies. I also feel that things are up to me again, not simply the Universe. As if by consciously putting myself out there in the Universe I can get some results toward my intentions that I can actually bank on. Focus, aim, and inner healing are the theme of the week, not just this Saturn period.

Everyone is feeling more free, so remember to keep your on and off duty boundaries, as the "Be vigilant" card from the Messenger Oracle deck reminds us. It's not our job to guide people through every second of their live and decisions. Sometimes just letting people know we have faith in them is really all that is needed. We have to take care of us first, get our stuff done first, and give from our excess. And the Universe is counting on us to take of our stuff, our mission, this week.

Thursday and Sunday are Master 22 days, so we're going to have cosmic support to get things DONE! Mama Earth (the Mawu card) and the tarot card "the world" remind us this can be an awesome week, nourishing, moving toward blossoming if we can release our fear of getting bitten in the ass or the crazy idea that we can heal everyone else.  These are the patterns we need to free ourselves from, so we feel fully supported and justified in taking care of ourselves.

"The Ghostlands" card from the Enchanted Map deck asks us to stop comparing NOW to the past. We are never really reliving a past pattern, as each moment is a new and different place and time. Our glory days aren't only in the past either, we need to taking Inspired and creative action to make those kinds moments are of our present lives. What you are experiencing nostalgia for are the things that we are being called to bring into our current lives, not from the direct past experience, but from where we're currently at.

September Guidance:

This month of integration is going be like a soulful Homecoming. Now that the dust has settled on the big Eclipse action we might be asking what on Earth it all meant, what all that hoopla was about. Well it was more than a simple string of bad luck or chaos. And we've got all September to begin to take part what did happen. And as some of our retrograde go direct over this next month, all those changes we wanted to see happen are going to come to the forefront. Eclipses aren't necessarily about beginning new things, but the second half of Mercury retrograde is. And this is where we currently are. 

All the ideas and inspiration can now begin to to be put into motion. You have all month to play around and find out what works, but what you focus on this week and next week are going to an extra dose of manifestation power!!

What does this mean for the lightworker Soulpreneur, the biz goddess?

 

This might be a week for:

  • Either moving forward, slow and steady, or finally making some decisions about how to move forward slow and steady.
  • Pay attention to new things seem to be working for you or helping you gain more traction. These are clues as to where we need to invest more time and attention over the coming month.
  • Some Core Desired Feeling or Energetic key work might be good this week, as the past comes up to remind us of the good times. Just remember to not compare the past to now, we are looking how we can weave in some new energies into what we are doing now, that might have served us well in the past.

Weekly Guidance: August 21st, 2017: Learn to embody higher energies

Learn to embody higher energies.

 

Happy Eclipse and New Moon!! 

The Moon card came forward this week to remind us to go inward.  Solar eclipses happen during New Moons, and new moons are all about release and integration of shadow. And it's new moon in Leo. So we're going to get bold, bold enough to confront our past and move through it. Bold enough to let go of things we never thought we would be to release because they formed such a strong lesson point in our lives. But even good lessons sometimes need to be let go, so that we can begin taking in new lessons and deeper lessons.

As we roll into Tuesday (some parts of the world will still be in Eclipse energy) we'll have a master day after our revelations. While master days are typically days where we are being asked to stand for ourselves and our work, we're still in Mercury retrograde. So this might be an excellent day to try something new or trying things in a new ways. It might well very be a day when you can let go some bad past experiences and try something that felt like "failure"  or "hurt" before with new eyes and heart.

The Messenger Oracle card, "Respect your Boundaries" and the Enchanted Map deck "Come together", show that while things might be lifting, we still need to make sure we are leaving ourselves the time and space to finish the inner shifts we have begun. That might include some extra alone time, daily practice "work", and making appointments with uplifting friends and peers for some planning and dreaming time. We are still in an energy of being able to experiment with different changes, but as Saturn goes direct over the weekend we'll come a point where we'll be able to make more solid choices. And once we are really able to get some momentum going, we can be more ready for meeting the world as it is again.

Vesta rounds the reading for the week. The message "Your household situation is improving, either through a move or a healthy change in the occupants." isn't entirely literal. While relationships, authority, and trust might have brought some issues to the home-front, this season hasn't had the "homey" energy that we had in June and at the beginning of the year. But the message is certainly poignant, in that life in general is going to improve and flow easier, as the week goes on, as we begin to integrate and get real with all the changes and shifts this eclipse has brought for you. 

Remember to take some time for embracing the sacredness of your life and this time of year!

 

And here's part 2

What does this mean for the intuitive biz Goddess?

This week should be geared toward things like:

  • Building some new or improved action plans with your clients.
  • Refreshing your marketing plans and opportunities to "get out there in the spotlight".
  • New product ideas or ways to serve your following might hit you out of the blue.
  • Since we're not out of Merc Retro yet, we still have two weeks to go, this is the time to make sure your clients are being realistic about their new plans, ideas, and changes. It's at time to help your clients research and experiment with trying new things out. Don't commit to action plans and huge investments of time and money now unless flexibility is part of the desire for the project or idea. If something more stable is desired, wait until after Merc goes direct in early September to solidify plans.

Weekly Guidance: August 14, 2017: Where’s your balance point between ideals and action?

weekly reading august 14 17: what's your balance point between ideals and action

Where's your balance point?

This is going to be another busy-feeling week, and if we're not grounded, we're going wonder where all our time went. The challenge this week is really to hold steady and meet the inspirations coming through with an eye of discernment. And there is going to be a lot coming through, but at the beginning of the week, it's not necessarily going to be the warm fuzzy kind of inspiration. It might feel more like "hard won" lessons about our boundaries and our ability to take action.

 

Here's a brief day by day look at the shifting influences of the week:

Monday: Some Saturn action in the skies, meaning we are assessing our relationship with luck, time, and ability to make opportunities happen even in adverse circumstances. 

Tuesday: Venus action- Let what you love tune you to a higher state of mind.

Wednesday: we're getting a little Mars action again, remember to tune it what it is that you really feel you need to stand for. What battles are you really meant to fight? What is movements are really worthy of your admiration?

Thursday: is going to be a good day, high-vibes, uplifting and we begin the up-vibes as we head toward the big solar Eclipse!

Weekend: Follow the inspiration coming through. What needs to change in your life and how can you take the first step NOW!

 

Through these movements we are being asked to keep practical and keep your nose to your personal grindstone (of what you are passionate about). Be less concerned about what others are doing and more concerned about what it's going to take for you make bigger action, more commitment, or even more consistent devotion. Eclipses and Merc. Retros are about up-leveling your life. Sometimes this requires a clearing of things you have been procrastinating over or taking the harder action because it's what is actually going to bring you the bigger results you have been seeking.  This isn't about perfectionism or meeting someone else's idea of what you "should be" doing. This is about tuning to what seems to be getting you real results and movements and being confident enough and self-loving enough to follow that and build your own path.

The leadership themes of this Eclipse season have been very noticeable in my life.  I have been having thoughts around how I can be more "on the ball" and ready to do all the things I have set before myself. My feminine side has been getting the influence of wanting to live solely by my ideals and wait till things settle out, while my more masculine side has been egging me on to take more action. But soul knows this is black and white thinking, neither is the course of action that really needs to be taken. Both sides of the coin are needed. The ideals of what we are aiming for AND the action to make those thing happen.   

For me, what's it's coming down to is what kind of leader or ruler do I want to be....to myself. Not just others. How do you want to feel while completing your tasks, while actually taking action. While we may not be able to summon confidence to our side for each and everything, we can take some faith that the actions we are taking are going reach the people they intended AND serve as an outlet for the guidance coming through. Even if we don't quite "get it" in the moment, even if what are debating seems a little fuzzy.  Even if our more masculine side says we're weak for not be super brave in the moment. 

Sometimes it's the heart that wins the day, other times it's inspired action. 

Take this week moment by moment and feel into what you are trying to say and create and seek the most accurate alignment you can in the moment!

This might be a week for getting deep insight, but it will be a week where lots of questions and doubts surface. You may need to keep your readings, healings, or sessions lighter than usual to leave room for people to explore some of the "leadership" and "direction" questions that might come up. Remind them that big energies are coming through this week, and that they will peak with the Eclipse. This is not the week to huge sweeping changes, but rather to take not of the doubts and questions that come up. Once we know what kind of inspiration is on the heart and mind, you can help others set some specific intentions for introspection and inquiry over the big Eclipse. 

 

And the same goes for you, lightworker. This isn't the week to start the big changes, this is a week for recording or writing down what you need more insight over, and setting intentions around getting that clarity. You might find some great insight into what deeper problems are really plaqueing you clients, which is great insight for marketing and program/product creation!

Weekly Guidance: August 7th, 2017: Trust you are in the perfect place at the perfect time

Weekly reading

What's Rising within you?

As we're heading into the beginning of the Eclipses, today and tomorrow, we're having a bit of a release period. You might find yourself calling into question the big choices you made over the last 12 years, since 1999.  Knowing whether those choices were made from fear or from a place of personal empowerment, can really help get us into alignment with where we are headed. Understanding why you might have held on to something you should have let go of, gotten off track, or settled instead of shooting for more, will show us where we need more forgiveness around our sense of self. 

Take the next 48 hours to practice some forgiveness and gratitude, so we can facilitate the release and tune into the greater energy and message available in this time.  Try not to borrow drama, stress, or negativity. Instead sink in to soul and know that sometimes there are no easy answers, sometimes we just have to put one foot in front of other and know the Universe is rising to meet us each moment. 

And don't forget to baby yourself today. No matter what get stirred up, acting from a place of anger, upset-ness, frustration, or resentment isn't going to serve anyone. Let the realization of your triggered feelings sink in on another level, one that is going to inform you where you need to make better or more powerful personal choices. This week isn't about letting the fire consume you, but instead it's more about sorting stuff out, thinking of it in a new way, so we can bring ourselves into more soulful alignment over time. We've got a busy energy month, this August, so take it one feeling at a time!

Each moment we have during an Eclipse and retrograde season we are having for  a reason. It's not always some deep, life-altering kind of thing, sometimes it's as subtle as realizing you've been avoiding something, like sending a bill, and it's causing some flow issues for you. We can come to great clarity during these kinds of energies, because we are being pushed to take care of things we've been putting off or putting on the back burner.  Don't dread it. Have a little faith that it's coming up during this time, because now you are ready to take some action, make a decision, etc... to clear it up and get it off your plate.

For me, the personal freedom issues have been coming up and I find myself questioning whether I've been living as intentionally as I need to be, or not. But we can't let perfectionism or past regret shade our present moment. Those are illusions of the fear mind, ego. They would like to have us believe that if we do everything "just right" good things will happen, and if we fail to do things "just right" we'll struggle or get punished. It's time to move past this concept.  For every choice there is consequence, but who said consequence is a bad thing? The Universe isn't out to punish us. I don't think "God" punishes us either. I think we've been living for so long, so entrenched in the world of duality that we're simply used to looking for all the bad things that "could"  be related back to our failures and flaws. 

But what if there's is little or not relation to the car breaking down during Merc. retro and the fact that you didn't stand up for yourself as well as you did with your mom? How would your life change if you didn't have to let all the weird little happenings between people and events relate back to what you decided to do? What if you chose this moment, despite whatever, to simply rise and love and breathe and smile?

Clients might think they be backsliding on their blocks, but they might also have a renewed devotion to getting through those blocks. This isn't the week to push ahead hard. This is a week where we'll have to see what hits our clients and be the rock and words of wisdom. There might be a tendency to want to push forward to end pain once and for all, but this is just the beginning of the Eclipse cycle. Deeper, slower work will be need to fine tune the visions that are coming through and blocks that are being raised into awareness.

Remember this isn't about trying to make everyone quantum leap, this is about the slow conscious awakening to the fact that we are meant for more. Be the voice of reason in impulsive times.  Make sure your peeps are doing the needed work around the issues before they make big commitments. If flexibility is what they need in their plans, use the Merc. Retro in their favor by making the commitment now. But if they need more fixed, solid plans, use the Merc. Retro to find the clarity needed, and make the bigger commitment after the retro is over.

Trust that the Universe has some surprises up it's sleeve for us and plan for that!
