The Feminine Warrior

Happy Independence Day!  It may not feel like there’s a whole lot to celebrate as a nation.  Our rights as women have been taken away and there are people out there who would like to take more of our rights.
 
It’s easy to get trapped in the negative, but it’s important to not remain there and realize that women still have power.  Females in the past have fought this same fight before and have made progress.  It can be done again.
 
The Sun in Cancer can be representative of the feminine.  It’s a nurturing and caring energy and on July 8 at 9:23 am it is Square Chiron in Aries.  Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer and it’s in the sign of Aries, the warrior.
 
There’s an opportunity here.  The battle isn’t going to be won overnight, but it can and will be fought.  There’s an opportunity for women to empower themselves.
 
As women, we have been shamed and made to feel guilty for making decisions that are right for us.  Why?  Because they may not be right for the masculine.  Women and their role in society for centuries had been reduced to the role of caretakers.  While that may be one part of being a woman, that isn’t all that we are.  The patriarchy has put us made us “second-class” citizens for centuries.  The time for the feminine to put herself on equal ground is now.
 
It's time to fight.  How do we fight?  It hasn’t been entirely revealed quite yet, but one way is to vote.  Women died for us to have the right to vote and it’s time to use it.  As a country, the United States is in its Pluto Return.  The United States’ Pluto is in Capricorn.  Capricorn is the structure.  At that time, women were the property of men and it shows in the founding documentation of our country.  And it’s not just women that were property, but people of other races.  The United States founding documentation represents rich white men.
 
The United States is not composed of entirely rich white men.  The United States is composed of women and men from all regions of the world and it’s time that our laws reflect that.  With the U.S.’s Pluto Return we have an opportunity to change course.  To make sure that we are heard and have a role in society that is representative of who women really are.  Women do not have to feel shame or guilt for being who they are any longer.  We can become a Feminine Warrior and have power over the things in life that are important to us. It’s time to get battle-ready!

Have You Been Doing The Work?

Have you been growing?  If you have, then this week should help you to battle whatever obstacles are standing in your way and reach new levels.  If you haven’t then you may experience some internal power struggles.
 
Mars in Aries is going to be Square Pluto in Capricorn on July 1, 2022 at 10:14 pm.  Mars in Aries is pushing the structures that you’ve been forced to confront with Pluto in Capricorn.  Those structures have been crumbling.  Things are no longer what they once were and there is no going back.  You’re in a new era and it’s time to accept that it’s different.  You’re different.
 
The energy wants you to change, it’s demanding change.  With this energy, you could push yourself a little too hard, so watch out for that dynamic, but it’s time.  Mercury has told you the secrets that you need to know so that you can make changes and move ahead.  That time for change is now. 
 
Change is never easy, especially when it feels like it’s been forced upon you.  It’s easier when you have a choice.  You always have a choice, but that doesn’t mean the energy isn’t going to have a say in the direction you take.  If you’re making a choice that the universe no longer agrees with, it will make it more and more difficult for you to make the same decision.  If you’re still not getting it, you could reach a precipice point and the universe will make a different decision for you.  We’ve all been there, getting fired from a job was one of mine.
 
I couldn’t see what the universe wanted me to see.  It was time for me to take a different path in my life.  It was giving me obstacles, but I kept finding a way around it.  The termination from my job was the universe forcing me to look at my choices and make a new one. 
 
It could be time for a new choice or a new path, but watch out for the internal struggles.  Those struggles may be telling you something you don’t want to hear, but it could lead you in the right direction.

Time For Yourself

It’s time for big shifts this coming week.   The Summer Solstice occurs on June 21, the longest day of the year and the official beginning of summer, plus the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer at 5:14 am EST.
 
Around the world, rituals are still performed to welcome the Summer Solstice.  These rituals are meant to thank the sun for its continuing to bring light and to request continued abundance. 
 
Cancer season represents a time of nurturing and sensitivity.  It’s the time of year when you might take time off and maybe even do something for yourself and not just go go go.  School is out for the summer and there’s some time for flexibility in your schedule.
 
Venus will enter Gemini the next day on June 22 at 8:34 pm EST.  She will move out of a sign that she rules into one that is all about communication and being social.  Maybe it’s time for spending some time with your loved ones, friends and family. 
 
A good question to ask yourself this Cancer season, is what can you do for yourself?  It’s so easy to focus all your attention on the people around you and lose track of what you need.  Cancer is also known to sacrifice itself for the needs of others.  Don’t lose yourself in the process.  It’s way too easy to let that happen.
 
Venus in Gemini can be inquisitive and searching.  If you’re looking to change things up, this can be a great time.  Cancer is willing to start something new and Gemini is adaptable.  You can take all the secrets that have been revealed and start to implement some inner growth.

Look Within

It may not seem like it at the beginning of the week but is a week to look within yourself.  Make sure to take your time in making decisions, because confusion and misunderstandings are possible.
 
Mercury re-enters Gemini after it’s retrograde period on June 13 at 11:27 am.  Mercury is going to want to be social and meet up with friends.  It’s going to want to talk until the wee hours of the morning, but Mercury is just a distraction to what you’re feeling.
 
Mars in Aries is conjunct Chiron in Aries on June 15 at 10:17 am.  Mars is wanting to take some action on your wounds.  The Sun in Gemini is Square Neptune in Pisces on June 16 at 09:41 am.  Confusions and misunderstandings are underway,  Mercury in Gemini is Square Saturn in Aquarius on June 18 at 5:32 pm.  You could feel sad and disappointed.  Things haven’t turned out quite how you expected.
 
During its retrograde, Mercury was busy telling you secrets and revealing what you needed to know.   Now that Mercury is direct, you’re trying to make some further discoveries and make sense of what you’ve learned over the last few weeks, but Neptune in Pisces is creating a fog.  You don’t quite have all of the information yet that you need to make the necessary changes.
 
When confusion is abound, it’s a great time to look within.  Examine why you’re feeling sad or disappointed or angry.  It can be so easy to try and avoid your emotions.  They’re just getting in the way of your day.  Emotions arise for a reason.  Don’t ignore them.  Look at them.  Take your time and don’t rush to judgment or action.  You’re going to want to act quickly with Mars being in Aries, but take a deep breath and take your time. 
 
This isn’t a sprint.  This is a process that takes time.  You’re getting to feel crappy before you feel better, but once you begin the process, you will reach a place where the past doesn’t have the same ability to control you that it once did.  You can begin to feel free.  Isn’t freedom what you’re ultimately searching for?

Plunge Into the Depths

Mercury has now stationed direct.  Yay! But, remember the shadow period of Mercury retrograde typically lasts about 2 weeks, so it’s still active.  On June 10, Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn.
 
Trines tend to be a harmonious aspect, so it’s one that’s often overlooked for self-development work, but it can help.  Mercury is asking questions of Pluto and wants to know its secrets.  Pluto is your deepest emotional wound.  Pluto wounds tend to be unconscious, but what happens when you make it conscious?  You’ve opened up another whole can of worms to work with.
 
Pluto wounds are emotional.  They tend to lead to tears, but if you start working with it, it can truly begin to change your life.  Now that Mercury is direct, what secrets were revealed to you.  Did you learn about your Pluto wounding?  Could it change the direction of your life, if you make it change?  There’s a good possibility that the answer is yes. The secret revealed could change your life, but what do you do.  Do you act or do you stay with the known road?
 
Mercury trine Pluto is a perfect time to investigate the inner workings of yourself.  How do you tick?  You can alter the course of your life.   The hardest step is always the first.  Inner work is hard, there are no 2 ways about it.  It may be one of the most difficult things that you encounter, but it can also be the most rewarding and empowering decisions that you make. 
 
Are you ready to change your life?  You don’t have to act, just yet.  You can start with the preliminary work.  Begin with the investigation.  No decisions have to be made during an investigation; you’re just gathering information. 
 
What information are you starting to gather?  Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Karmic Point

The early part of the week could feel relaxing after the energy of the last few weeks.  The intensity will give you a brief reprieve before it’s time for the first Karmic choice point.
 
Mercury is stationing direct on June 3 in Taurus.  You should have had some big reveals over the last few weeks.  Mercury has been telling you secrets and giving you information that you need so that you can make some big decisions.
 
On June 4, Saturn will station to go retrograde in the sign of Aquarius.  Saturn will remain retrograde until October 23.  Saturn is beginning to take you in a new direction.  The period of confusion and stagnation will come to a close and even though it may seem counterintuitive with a retrograde planet, Saturn in Aquarius wants to you explore your future.  What should it look like?  Is the life that you’re living, the one that you really want to be living?
 
You have a choice to make.  If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve been getting information about the direction and choices that you’ve made so far.  Do you want to keep going down that path or is time to choose a new one?  Choosing a new path is never easy.  It’s so much easier to continue down the known path, even when you’re unhappy. 
 
You’re here on this planet for a reason.  It may not always seem obvious, but it’s there.  The parts of yourself that can seem uncomfortable, maybe part of your mission in this life.  As a child, I always wanted to be like everyone else.  I wanted to fit.  I never felt like I belonged.  As I’ve gotten older, the harder I tried to fit in, the harder it was for me to continue down that path.  One day, I began to realize that I was never going to be like everyone else, I just had to learn to be me.  After years of trying to be like everyone else, I first had to figure out who I was.  But then, I had to learn to be me. 
 
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been getting more information about who I am and what has been holding me back.  Like you, I’m at a choice point.  I can make a different choice and grow or I can remain where I am.  I’m not entirely sure what that new path looks like yet, but I do know that I’ve had to release some expectations of where I thought I would be.  It’s a process and one that’s not entirely finished, but I’ve started to put the intention out there and make some new choices.  It’s scary, but in the end, it will take me somewhere I never could have expected.

Confident or Angry

How have you been emotional over the last week?  Lots of emotions have been rising to the surface.  You’ve been receiving clarity about the direction that you’re going to be taking.  You’ll need that information as you begin this week.
 
Mercury is still retrograde, but on May 22, it’s going back into the sign of Taurus.  If you’ve been feeling ungrounded, this is great energy to help you feel more stable in your way of thinking.
 
On May 24, Mars is going to enter the sign of Aries, the sign of the ram and the warrior.  The positive form of Mars in Aries is a sense of confidence and a readiness to take action.  The negative form can be feelings of anger. Whether you’re in the positive or the negative only matters in so much as it tells you where you stand in that given moment.  It can be fluid and you can move between them. 
 
The key is to pay attention to what you’re feeling.  If you are feeling angry, take a deep breath.  Why are you feeling angry?  Maybe it’s something that you’re meant to work through.  When you’re angry, you’re rising towards empowerment.  You don’t want to discount what you’re feeling or try to suppress it.  It’s meant to be expressed, but it must be conveyed in a way that is healthy for you and those around you.
 
Look at the world.  There are way too many people that go around and use their anger toward others who don’t deserve it.  Try and look at your anger objectively.  Are you in a place where it can be expressed safely?  If you are, great.  Find a way to direct that anger in a healthy manner.  If not, you’re going to continue to take some deep breaths and use those breaths to control your emotions. If you can, walk away and come back to the anger when you’re in a better place. 
 
Anger is tricky.  It can seemingly come out of nowhere and take you by surprise.  Normally this is because something has been suppressed, which is why you want to state it, but you don’t want to unleash it.  If you’re feeling angry, it can be a great time to talk with a coach or someone else who isn’t connected to what you’re experiencing.
 
Mars in Aries will take those emotions that you’ve been feeling and channel them in a positive or negative way.  Which path are you going to choose?   Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Release

It’s time for the next eclipse!  It happens on May 16, 2022 at 12:14 AM EST.  This Lunar Eclipse happens under the Full Moon in Scorpio.  What do you need to release?
 
The North Node is in Taurus, you’re meant to examine what do you value and if it isn’t something that you value or it doesn’t bring you joy, then with this Full Moon in Scorpio it’s time that it’s released.  Of course, this doesn’t mean that you throw away everything in your life that doesn’t bring you joy.  But something was revealed to you under the New Moon in Taurus.  Something that you’re working on right now.  What is preventing you from moving ahead?  It could be an emotional block or baggage from your past.  This is the perfect time to do some shadow work and release what no longer serves you.
 
It's easy to get stuck in the day-to-day activity of life and think that a better life is for other people and doesn’t apply to you.  Or maybe it’s just too hard to get there so why bother.  There’s no sense in lying, making change is never easy.  It’s so much easier to be in the routine of life, but does it help to make you a better person.  Does it bring value to your life?
 
It’s never easy to walk the path less traveled.  Your family and friends may question your judgment, but you know in  your heart what is right for you.  It’s time to step into your self and value who you are and not just what everyone else expects you to be.  You can easily get lost when you’re trying to be someone else.  Release those expectations and start to walk your path.  It may get emotional, but it’s only temporary.  You can do this.  You’re meant to grow.  You’re meant to become a better person.  Release what no longer serves you and plant the seeds to become who you want to be.

Fight the Good Fight

We’re still in Eclipse season. It’s already been a doozy energy wise and it’s about to get cranked up another notch.  On May 10, Jupiter will move out of the dreamy-drifty sign of Pisces into the sign of Aries, the warrior.  Also on May 10, Mercury will begin its retrograde period until June 3.
 
Jupiter in Aries is full of energy, it’s idealistic and impulsive, but it can also be arrogant.  Jupiter wants us to expand into the unknown, look beyond what’s comfortable and learn something new.  This is a great time to tap into Jupiter’s love of higher learning.
 
Mercury in Gemini is a quick, trickster energy that is telling secrets.  Retrogrades want you to look back at any issues from the past.  Review what’s happened.  Did it happen the way that it was supposed to?  Could you do something different?  Retrogrades aren’t typically the time to begin the change, but to examine what could you do to move forward.
 
It’s quite the energetic hotbed that we’re in.  You may be presented with an issue that thought you already dealt with and realize that you only dealt with one piece of it, or you just thought you did.  Our shadows are presented in cycles.  Just one layer is gone, the next pops to the surface to be faced.  Healing work is never done.
 
The second eclipse of the season arrives on May 16 and you’re being pushed to realize what doesn’t work for you any longer.  Are you ready to let it go?  The North Node in Taurus wants you to learn new things and grow.  With the Sun still being in Taurus, you’re being provided with some stability as you start to fight the fight.  The question with Jupiter in Aries is what type of warrior are you?  The type that does it with honor or one that’s hot headed.  It may not always seem like you have a choice, but you do. 
 
It can be easy to feel the heat of the moment and act impulsively but take a deep breath before taking action.  What is your ultimate goal?  Act from that place when at all possible.

Time for Growth

Happy Beltane!  It is officially the halfway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.  Warmer weather in the northern hemisphere is on its way.  Beltane is the merging together of growth, fertility, and new beginnings.  When combined with the energies of yesterday’s eclipse in Taurus energy, you’re looking at a potent time.
 
Not only did yesterday’s eclipse involve the Sun and the Moon in Taurus, but also Venus, which rules Taurus, and Uranus, the planet of awakening and electricity were involved.  You can still feel the effects of the eclipse today and for the next couple of weeks.  It’s a time when a lot can feel possible, but it can also feel like you just want to stay home and hideaway.  You may feel quiet and reflective one moment and full of persistence the next.  You may feel the need to release the emotions that no longer serve you.  This could involve lots of tears or just being stubborn and not wanting to give in to the energy.
 
The universe has a plan for you, and it is revealed to us in small manageable pieces.  Pluto just went retrograde on April 29, so we’re being asked to review our darkness.  How can your darkness move you into the light?  Your shadow always has something to teach you, good or bad and Pluto in Capricorn is still transforming the structures of your life. 
 
The bull of Taurus isn’t exactly known to change.  It has fixed energy that doesn’t like to change unless it absolutely must, but this is one of those times where change seems to be required.  The world we live in has changed.  Like it or not, COVID has changed everything, and it isn’t over yet.  People desperately want things to go back to “normal”, but that just isn’t possible.  Life is different.  You will always know what it is like to wear a mask in a store or to even just know what COVID is.  There is no going back.  You can only go forward. 
 
You may resist the idea of change, but it’s required for growth.  This is a time to grow.  Just look outside your door, the planets are starting to come up out of the ground, but they’ve been taking root all winter.  There are things taking place that you aren’t privy to.  Don’t fight the energy.  If you get emotional, let the emotions happen.  There’s a reason why they’re coming up.  It can be a time of great intensity if you fight, but if you go with the flow and see what the universe has in store, you could be pleasantly surprised.
