As Truth becomes our mantra, the Queen of Pents calls us to use our wisdom and grounding as we enter this period between Eclipses. Either we will be on the ball with the information coming through us at this time or we will behind the ball, in denial, and feeling the pressure and struggle.
For me these changes and reflections seem to be centered on my closest relationships and whether I have placed my trust wisely. While there might not seem like there are a lot of external actions making things volatile, my mind is active with listening and sensing out where these relationships need more accountability and more trust. Any external chaos at this times seems to support this internal investigation, having you look more closely at where the balance in your relationships really lie. What is happening in the moment might not even be what is really upsetting you. This period brings a deeper stirring of things we might have sensed were wrong or off over time, yet have not had the motivation or inclination to correct. Try not to get caught up in the little ripples that might be happening currently, for what you are seeing and sensing go deeper than these happenings. Whether it's people relationships or your relationship with work struggle, this is a week to beyond your normal patterns. The energies of this week will allow you to see where things could go if you got out of your own way or you stopped believing and feeding your excuses.
This kind of see-saw, internal view and then external view of your situation, will continue throughout the week. Remember the focus is in making sure you see your relationships how they really are. This isn't about the blame game or trying to show who cares more. It feels more like a family or relationship internal audit, evaluating how things got to this place and who played what part. It might seem like you or others around are walking on egg shells, but really it's simply that we are adjusting to seeing things in a new way. That new perspective will either ring true or fall away. To avoid unnecessary stress this, it might be helpful to focus on "I" or "impact" statements. Saying "I feel this way..." or "From my perspective, that feels like....." will shift a conversation away from blame and more toward balanced discussion. Stick with the bare bones truth, and try to avoid dramatizing the situation!
Eclipse periods are provided twice a year, so that we can continue our path of growth, not to cause unnecessary strife. While I can't guarantee we can be on a stress diet this week, to help combat some the pressure and chaos, it is a week to sink as deep as we can in our grounding and wisdom. Flying off the handle will not get us anywhere in this already emotionally highly-charged week. Most of the struggle will be internal, so put extra reminders in your calendars or planners for this week that you are the creator of your own reality. You alone can define what comes next, how you will react, and how the Truth either helps or hurts you. Only you can decide how it will affect your life and where you will actually go.
