This will be a week of seeming opposing forces, action and dreaming, forward movement and stability. We can no longer afford to view life as and/or. Instead, we need to learn to live from a place where all the forces come together into a sweet spot. It is through these opposing forces that we find balance, that sweet spot that touches upon all the ingredients we need to forge ahead on our path. A word on balance, before . When we talk about balance your mind might conjure up visions of perfectly done yoga poses or of you being a super mom and entrepreneur.
But balance isn’t something static. It’s not a “perfect” state of being all things at once. Balance is being able to maintain homeostasis in rhythm through opposing forces, like a ball going through push and pull forces. We don’t want to get caught in such heavy currents that we are frozen in place, we just need to find a healthy and sustainable rhythm that will keep our center flourishing and nourished.
Balance isn’t about being stuck in one place, it’s dancing amid the forces surrounding you.
What caught my attention about this reading is the Magickal Map Maker card. The meaning in the book for this card focuses on the players in our life. The author points out that we need to be aware of the vibe of others in our life. Also that there are times we need to choose a new vibe for ourselves through the people we play with and love. So, please so be aware of those who seem to be message bearers for you this week, it might very well be a sign that you need to let this person and message into your life more.
I want to point out here, that the Map Shifter is consciously arranging things in her life. She is watching the flow of things around her, so she will know where to shift or move to next. In this week of protecting the balance we have found (or are still finding), be aware of two things. The first is your balance as it is right now. How can you make this more pleasurable and sustainable?
The second thing to be aware of, is as October comes upon us, we will see new inspiration and level of truth telling. These are the last two weeks of being in the shadow of this last Mercury retrograde. Our communication and expression can still be put to the “soul alignment test”during this time. If you feel you haven’t gotten past your blocks and hit upon the root truth to what you are experiencing in life right now, you have two weeks yet to do so!! The focus on balance this week could really lend itself to finding your new truth!
Tell me in the comments below: What truths are you holding back??? What do you need to do in order to upgrade your idea of balance??
This week’s guidance feels very clear, it’s all about soul integration. If you’ve been doing the inner work this eclipse season has asked of you, then this week should feel more like an internship than a trail by fire. I am saying it’s an internship because the work we do this week can very well count as moving toward our overall success. It’s not a test, it’s a chance for us to slow our roll, roll up our sleeves, and use the lessons and mind shifts we have been awakening to these last two months to move forward.
On the surface, it may seem like obstacles or weird situations may be thrown your way, but this is your chance to get more deeply into your center and apply some Love to the situation. When we are fully in our center, there really aren’t any problems, as we are used to thinking of them on a daily basis. From that perspective we are acting from love or not from love, from the light or from our shadow. This week is all about shifting and releasing, basically everything I’ve been writing about here at Super Secret Powers since the beginning of August!!
We are being asked to slow down a bit, not so much to make better choices, but to make choices from the best energy and space for us. This can be a week of big action, but we are being called to approach our actions and decisions this week from a very deep soul level. The stars will support this move, this rebirth of our soul selves, by giving the energy to release the habits, patterns, lifestyle choices, and so forth that no longer serve us. As we move toward the Full moon and eclipse over this week end, invest your trust in your light, your intuition, and your guidance. In the week coming, I sense that many who thrive this week will finally have sense of initiation, of having “made it, or even finally having graduated!
Soul Level Reflection for this week
Weekly Reflection: Sept. 12: We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to created them. -Einstien
Today we are introducing a new deck to my mix, the First Light Tarot is a neat combination of oracle deck and tarot deck, decorated with photos from the Hubble telescope. It’s awesome little deck for those who are considering it. But on to the reading….
The intensity of August and the Eclipse season continues to inspire us and keep us looking in a new direction. If you take the time to set your intentions clearly and early, based on the illumination you got over last week and the weekend, you will have created an energetic “talisman” to help guide you during the coming week.
This week is more a trial run than it is real life. We’re going to have a lot of ideas and inspiration for practical implementation thrown at us in regards to your new vision. This is the time to test out your thoughts and feelings about what you can create. Take the energy on, take to a big level, so that you can discover what will easily flow from your intentions and what needs more clarity and refinement to work.
Weekly Affirmation: Our intention creates our reality. -Wayne Dryer
To focus on creating your energetic talisman or tuning your internal compass, charge your energy field up really high at the start of the week. Raise your vibe with your core desired feelings (the feelings you really to experience now and in the immediate future) so that those feelings can act as a magnet pulling resonant inspiration and opportunities your way for the rest of the week. You can also allow those feeling to guide you in making choices that feel resonant with your desired feelings. Charge your system by getting real good and deep with what you feel, no holding back, as the closer we get to retrograde the fuzzier things can get in the realm of words and expression. Take time over the next few days to do some internal work, like the Desire Map, the Dreambook, or the Courageous Living Program!
