Bring Me A Higher Love

Oh no, the dreaded Mercury retrograde begins this week!  And it begins right in the middle of two eclipses with the second to occur on April 8.  What does that mean?  

Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Aries on April 1 at 6:14 pm EST. It may seem like a big giant April Fool’s joke, but it’s that time of year when technology goes haywire and it’s time to take a pause and revisit past communications.  Communications in Aries tend to be a little on the impulsive side, so it’s good to remember to think before you speak.  Remember once you’ve said it, you can’t take it back.  Because this Mercury retrograde is between the two eclipses, you could be revisiting something from the past that will help to create your new beginning. The new beginning is in the not-too-distant future, but sometimes you have to clean up and declutter to allow something new to come in.

Venus in Pisces Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces on April 3 at 9:10 am EST. Neptune is often thought to be a higher form of Venus.  With Venus being in Pisces a sign it loves and Neptune being in Pisces a sign it rules, this is a special day.  Neptune is nearing the later degrees of its stay in Pisces and will enter Aries in 2025.  It’s so easy to get bogged down with the daily responsibilities of life. Fear tends to take over and rule the roost, but it doesn’t have to.  Take a moment and think about how can I approach this from a place of love.  Nobody’s saying that this is an easy practice to take, but if you make it a practice, it could just change your life.

Venus enters Aries on April 5 at 12:00 am EST.  Love is going to become impulsive, but it could also have a new beginning.  Aries is the start of the astrological year and it’s a time for new opportunities and beginnings.  You could take the lessons of yesterday and start to implement a new practice, but remember you have to take action.  If you don’t take action, it’s just a thought.  Venus in Aries could help you to take that step that you have been hesitant to take.  Also, Venus in Aries loves to do something for themselves.  Love yourself enough to do something for yourself.

This is still an intense period of energy.  Take the lessons of Mercury Retrograde and Venus this week.  Rest, relax, and love yourself in the highest way possible.

Break Free

After the energies of the last few weeks, you may just want a break, but it’s not quite over yet.  Are you ready to start letting go of what’s keeping you stuck in place?  Something has shifted in your life in the last few weeks.  Are you ready to let it dissolve and move forward?

The Sun in Virgo Opposes Saturn in Pisces on August 27 at 4:28 am.  The Sun and Saturn are conversing about how to shift an area of your life.  Saturn in Pisces is ready for it to dissolve, but the Sun in Virgo is holding on.  It wants to perfect and improve it, but is that possible?  Can it be resolved or is it time to start over?  It may be time to start fresh.

Mars enters the sign of Libra on August 27 at 9:20 am.  It’s time to take action on the relationships in your life.  Mars would rather think about only itself, but there’s another person that’s involved.  That person’s thoughts and feelings need to be taken into account before forward progress can be made.  Or maybe there’s another part of you that needs to be considered.  Either way, a balanced approach is the path forward for the moment.

Uranus stations retrograde on August 28 at 10:39 pm.  Uranus in Taurus has been making changes, but it’s time to look inward.  Uranus is the planet of revolution and sudden awakenings.  Uranus is tired of the status quo and wants things to be different.  Taurus wants things to remain the same.  Since 2019 Uranus has been in Taurus shaking up an area of your life.  When it finally leaves Taurus in 2026, things won’t be the same, no matter how much you try.  Uranus stationing retrograde is an opportunity to break free of the ties that keep you bound.  You can be free from what’s keeping you stuck and take a different route.  Just give it a try.

Be Confident

The Sun is Leo and it’s the height of summer.   The Sun wants to be at its most confident and have fun, but there are a couple of reminders this week.  What does confidence mean to you?

The Sun in Leo conjuncts Venus in Leo on August 13 at 7:16 am.  Venus is retrograding back through Leo.  It’s asking us to take a look back at what you love and value.  Do you love yourself?  Are you confident in who you are?  If not, why not?  These are great questions to ask yourself and start examining the answers if you haven’t already.  It’s hard to expect someone else to love you if you can’t love yourself.  You don’t have to be perfect, but can you be confident in the person that’s looking back at you in the mirror?

On August 15 at 10:35 pm, the Sun in Leo Squares Uranus in Taurus.  You may have a sudden epiphany about what you value and why. This could be a continuation of the work you began earlier in the week.  You may receive answers about what steps you need to take or what you need to work on so that you can be more confident in who you are.  There’s nothing more important than valuing yourself and what you can contribute to your life and the world at large.

Are you confident in who you are?    Let me know.  Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment?

Practicality vs. Creativity

Hope you got some time to rest last week and maybe even figure out what’s important to you.  There are two sign changes this week, so the energy is shifting.

Mars enters the sign of Virgo on July 10 at 7:40 am.  The planet of action is entering the sign of perfectionism, industriousness, diligence, and practicality.  You may be finding it challenging to get things done while Mars is in the sign of Virgo, you may have to double and check everything to make sure that it is just right.  It could also keep you from being impulsive with your actions and make sure this next step is one that you want to take.

Also on July 10 at 4:48 pm., Mercury in Cancer Opposes Pluto in Capricorn.  The ideas coming to fruition might have to take a backburner to whether or not they are structurally sound.  That’s ok, write those ideas down anyways you may come up with a solution at a later time.

Mercury enters the sign of Leo a few hours later on July 11 at 12:11 am.  Your thoughts might be more creative or you may feel more confident while Mercury is in the sign of Leo. Harness the power of the sun and let it help guide your thoughts to be more optimistic and fun.

The Sun in Cancer Squares Chiron in Aries on July 12 at 8:06 am.  Get out of your head and get in touch with your emotions.  Your emotions are trying to tell you something, but you’re spending so much time trying to be right or striving for the next thing that you might be losing something important in the process.  Dig down.  Cry if you need to.  Crying is a great way to release pent-up energy and expel it from your body. 

Which is it for you?  Practicality or creativity?  Maybe even a little of both.  Let me know.  Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment?

Green Means Go

The energy doesn’t always work in your favor.  You may want something to happen and you want it to happen now, but the universe has applied the brake.  No matter what you seem to do nothing is moving forward, but there will start to be some motion again as Mars will station to go direct on January 12 at 3:56 pm.
 
Mars has been retrograde in the sign of Gemini since the end of October.  The planet of action and competition has been restless, social, and expressive.  Because of the airy nature of Mars, it seems like there’s just been a lot of talk and not much is happening.  It has been difficult to just get done what you need to and any changes that you wanted to make were put on the back burner until a better time.  Well, that time is coming. 
 
Mars will start retracing its steps and going back over those ideas and start to come up with a plan to go forward.  Mars will join the ranks of the other direct planets and once Mercury stations retrograde on January 18, it will be full steam ahead and you’re ready to go.
 
Review what you’ve been working on and decide whether you want to move forward or if the plan needs a little more time to percolate.  There’s nothing wrong with taking a little time to think it over, but sooner or later, you have to just go. 
 
Venus in Aquarius will square Uranus in Taurus on January 14 at 8:22 pm.  Spend some time with your friends or community, there may just be an aha moment that takes things in a new direction.

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. 

Always & Forever,

Don’t Be Like Everyone Else

It can be a challenge to just be yourself and either not wish you were someone else or that you had what someone else has, but this is the time to be yourself.  Don’t conform to other people’s expectations of you.    Mars in Aquarius is Square Uranus in Taurus on March 22.
 
The sign of Aquarius wants us to be unique and march to the beat of our own drum, while Uranus in Taurus is changing our relationships with each other.  In addition to our views of love and abundance. 
 
Mars Square Uranus is likely to bring up feelings of impatience and a need to break free, whether it be from the rules of life or the completion of tasks.  It’s going to be challenging to get a lot accomplished under this aspect.  If you find time from all of the rule-breaking and feel like accomplishing a task, this is a great time to be creative.  The energy level is high so it’s a great time to tap into your intuition and see what comes through you.
 
As human beings, you want to fit in.  You want to belong, and there are times when you will morph who you are to accomplish those goals.  This is not one of those times.  Be who you are.  It’s not never easy, but there’s nothing better than standing in your own power and not apologizing for being who you are.  Stand tall and be proud of yourself.  You are unique and that’s something to be appreciated and valued.  You be you. 
 
Often during the most challenging times of your life is when you learn the most about yourself.  When you are forced to grow and change, things that you never dreamed of could happen, all of a sudden happen.  Go where the wind blows you.  Feelings may still come up, let them.  It can be challenging to stand your power and be who you’re meant to be.  Don’t let those feelings sway you from harnessing the energy to your advantage.

Venus In Reverse

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, went retrograde on December 21, 2021, in the sign of Capricorn, where it remains in retrograde until January 29, 2022. What does that mean?
 
You’re being asked to revisit the past.  What have you learned about love? Capricorn represents your structure or foundation. What are your feelings of love based on? Depending upon whether you use the mean or the true node, the North Node is switching from Gemini to Taurus and the South Node from Sagittarius to Scorpio, which asks what wounds are rising for the surface for you to release.
 
Wounds are challenging. They can sneak up on you just when you think you’ve let them go.  I’ve been working on releasing emotional baggage for a few years now, just when I think I’m getting there, another layer rises to the surface.  I’ve been thinking about love and what it means to me now and what it has meant to me in the past.  I grew up with a lot of friends and family who I knew loved me, but an event with someone who I thought was my friend began to change what I had thought about love. Suddenly love brought pain and hurt.  As an 11-year-old, I couldn’t process what that meant.  I had trouble trusting myself. I had thought this person was my friend. How could I have been so wrong? I had trouble trusting others. Did they have ulterior motives? Were they out to get something from me? Once they got it, would they be gone?
 
It took time to put the pieces together and start to move forward. For years I lived in the pain and didn’t know how to begin.  As I approached my 30th birthday, I knew my life wasn’t what I wanted it to be.  I found Reiki. I started to heal. I started to find friends who met me on a new level. I started to open up, but along the way, I encountered betrayal again.
 
I reacted differently this time. I stopped trusting that one person instead of everyone, but I found this wound was still keeping me from moving forward.  I need to do some work. Wounds work in layers. There are layers to peel away.
 
What wound do you need to clear right now?  Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

It’s the Season of Light!

Some of you might think it’s too early to be looking ahead to Christmas.  I start decorating right after Thanksgiving, so I’m not in that camp.  The Sun moved into Sagittarius late in the day on November 21. For me, the Sun moving into Sagittarius signals the beginning of the Season of Light.
 
Sagittarius is a sign of wisdom, but also of hope and optimism. Something that you and everyone could use a little more of this year. The switch from Scorpio to Sagittarius is one where the energy can be felt. The release from the intensity of Scorpio is a welcome bit of relief. We’ve just given thanks for what we have, and the Sun doesn’t move into Capricorn until December 21.  For me, it’s the season of driving at night and seeing lights on people’s homes.  Just that alone can make the world seem like a happier place.
 
With everything that has been happening this year, it’s important to occasionally take a time out from the hustle and bustle and trying to figure out where you’re going and just be where you are.  To live in the present moment. To be optimistic, but not set in your ways, for how life could be. Maybe the world could agree to disagree and accept you and your neighbor for who they are. We so want to be right that we may have lost sight of what is true, or even beyond what is true, and acting from a place of love and empathy for our neighbor. It’s a hard standard to live by sometimes. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the goings-on of the day, but an ideal to hold nonetheless. 
 
So, during this season, when it can feel like consumerism has gone mad and every decision is about what you’re spending to show people that you love and care for them, maybe take a minor detour.  Spend time with the people that you care about and be appreciative of what you have. If life has taught us anything in the last couple of years, it is that life is fragile and can change in an instant. You can’t go back, no matter how hard you want to, and the future can’t be predicted. You only have this moment to do with as you may. Show the people that you care about how much and look to the light for answers.

It’s A Time To Heal!

There’s been so much going on energetically.  What are you to do?  You’re being given information and guidance, the key is to listen and begin to heal.
 
Healing can occur on three different levels: the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual.  When you’re encountering an issue, you never know which plane the problem is on.  The key is to locate the issue, the plane then begin your work using whatever modality works for you.  Reiki and trauma work tend to be what works best for me, but you could be different.
 
If you can catch an issue early before it has settled and has time to cause physical problems, the better off you are.  It’s important to remember that most things don’t happen overnight, illness and healing included.
 
The universe has been giving you guidance.  Bringing secrets to the surface and revealing information.  What you do is up to you?  But you’re not mean to sit with that information forever.  You’re supposed to do something with it.  Why not begin the process of healing yourself?
 
Healing is a process.  It’s like an onion.  You’re going to encounter layer upon layer before you get to the core of the issue.  It took time to get you to this point and it will take you time to “heal” it.
 
It’s ok to take breaks along the way.  Healing doesn’t happen all at once and doesn’t always make sense, but it’s one of the most important gifts that you’ll ever give yourself.  The gift of healing gives you a better you.
