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.

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.

Jump In The Deep End

The Sun moved into the sign of Taurus on April 19, so it is now the season of security, beauty, and the world around you is beginning to bloom and come to life.  The sign of Taurus is represented by the bull.  It has a fixed attitude and it isn’t looking to change unless it has to, but what if this is the time to begin to ask questions and start to do the work?
 
Mercury in Taurus will be Trine Pluto in Capricorn on April 28.  Within the next year in March of 2023, Pluto will move into the sign of Aquarius, the sign of innovation and forward-thinking, and leave behind the sign of our structures.  There is still a lot of work to do before this takes place and next week Pluto will station and go retrograde.  If you plan on beginning anything new, now is the time to act. 
 
Mercury in Taurus has been whispering secrets and asking questions of you.  What are your answers?  Now is the time to examine your inner structure.  Are you who you want to be?  Is there something that you are ready to release?  If the answer is yes, this is a perfect time. 
 
Shadow work is never easy, but to truly encompass the energy of Pluto, is essential.  Nothing that is truly important ever comes easily.  Mercury in Taurus is asking you, what do you value?   Ask yourself the same question.  If you look at your life, what you value should be clear.  It should be how you spend the vast majority of your time.  If your time and your values don’t align, maybe it’s time to start to shift that area of your life.
 
Sometimes just the idea of change can be overwhelming.  You don’t have to change everything overnight, but you have to start somewhere.  Sometimes the easiest thing is to just dive right into the deep end and get wet all at once.  Just dipping your toe in takes a lot longer to reach the same point.  Also, you don’t have to dive in alone.  Find someone in your life to either help you or hire a coach to help you. 
 
The road to empowerment will always take you through the landmines of Pluto, but you have to start.  Let the energy be your guide.

Shadow Comes to Light

The time to confront all of the information, good or bad, is about to be upon you.  The Sun in Aries is Square Pluto in Capricorn on April 18.  You may have been able to ignore your shadow side, but that doesn’t mean that it has disappeared or has miraculously resolved itself.  Like it or not you still have work to do.
 
Shadow work is something that never entirely ends, which is why it can drive you crazy.  Shadow work is like peeling away the layers of an onion, once one layer is gone, it's time to move on to the next.  You may not have the patience for the process to unfold, but it will help to grow and reach new heights that you never quite dreamed were possible.
 
Are you trying to control situations or people that you can’t quite control or have you been using power in the wrong way?  These are two possibilities about how this aspect could show up in your life.
 
The idea of confronting and changing something that is no longer working for you is one that may terrify you.  Sometimes the devil that you know is better than the one that you don’t.  This isn’t one of those times.  The universe wants you to succeed.  It wants you to become the person that you’re meant to be.  The only way to do that is to make changes.  Change isn’t easy, especially when it’s something that’s meaningful, but it’s the only want to get where you need to go.
 
The Sun in Aries loves to begin.  It’s a perfect time to start the process if you haven’t already.  If you have started the process, give yourself a big pat on the back and keep going.  This isn’t the time to stop now.

Time to Dream

Restrictions and boundaries have been the game, but right now stop and take some time to dream.  Jupiter and Neptune are meeting in the sign of Pisces on April 14, 2022.  While Jupiter and Neptune typically meet up every 13 years, this is the first time since March 17, 1856 meeting in their home sign of Pisces.
 
The sign of Pisces is all about intuition, imagination, dreams, empathy, and idealism.  Expect to find yourself more drawn to the dream world this week.  Who wants to be realistic right now?  Take into your intuition and search for the truth below the surface.  You’ve been learning a lot about what has been holding you back from moving forward.  This is a time to imagine what your life could be like if you’re willing to go to the next level.  This doesn’t mean that you need to take action yet, just imagine.  What could your life be like? 
 
You have dreams that you haven’t followed for one reason or another.  Life and other people’s expectations can have a tendency to get in the way.  Tap into those dreams.  Could you be meant to do more with your life?  Could you have it all wrong?  Or maybe you just need to make a few tweaks.
 
Your dreams can send you down roads that you never could have possibly imagined.  Your guides can whisper guidance in your ear that may seem like total nonsense but lead you to new discoveries.  This is a time to let the universal energies guide you where you need to go.  Don’t dismiss it as crazy quite yet.  More will be revealed but coming up with the idea is always the first step.

Time for Patience

Are you ready for your next Saturnian lesson?  It’s coming on April 4, when Mars in Aquarius will be conjunct Saturn in Aquarius.  The planet of action will be conjunct the planet of restrictions and boundaries.  Expect that things might not work out the way that you have expected or hoped.  Frustrations will become evident.  Plus Mercury just entered Aquarius on March 27, so expect that people might say exactly what they think.  This is a time for patience.

Patience can be a challenge.  You have an expectation for what is supposed to happen and when.  You’re finally ready to take the leap and it just doesn’t happen the way you wanted.  This isn’t a time to be discouraged.  It’s a time to persevere.  Be patient.

The universe doesn’t live on a linear timeline.  It would be great if it did.  Things happen when they’re meant to.  This can be a challenging lesson, especially in this day of instantaneous responses.  You no longer have to wait to receive a reply to a letter, you can get an answer right over the telephone.  You can book an appointment right over the internet during non-office hours.  But most of life doesn’t happen instantly.  You must have patience.

Patience can be one of the hardest lessons to learn.  To trust that what you’re feeling or working towards is the right thing, but not right now.  It could happen in a day, a week, a year or 10 years down the road.  Aquarius is a sign that tends to have you looking towards the future.  It’s not meant to happen now, but that doesn’t mean that you want to wait either.  Be patient and know that the universe has a plan for you.  Follow the clues and see where you’re being led.  Try to not let your expectations get in the way of what could unfold.  It could be bigger than you could have imagined.  Let the future take you where it will, but remember to keep going.  This isn’t the time to stop.
