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.

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.

Give It A Go

Are you afraid to try something new or even something that you did a long time ago?  Sometimes you have to be brave to try either one.
 
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term bravery is “the quality or state of having or showing mental or moral strength to face danger, fear, or difficulty.”  While bravery may often show up in times of war, it can just as easily be used to define a person that’s willing to face their fears.
 
Facing your fears doesn’t just mean running into a burning building either.  It could be something that’s held you back for months or years.   It could be as simple as trying something.
 
As a child, I was never a great roller skater, but I could roller skate.  However, I haven’t been roller skating in at least 20 years.  I decided recently I was going to try.  I didn’t even know if I’d be able to stand up.  I bought a helmet and put on the roller skates.  Surprise, I could stand up!  Moving around is a different story.  I do great skating on the grass, but the cement is trickier.  My niece and nephew took my hand to help.  At the end of a half-hour on skates, I decided that I should purchase some pads.  It would have been so easy to criticize myself.  I used to be able to do this and now I can’t.  But I decided to applaud myself for trying and once my pads I will try again.
 
Maybe for you, it's not roller skates, but the story still applies.  Did you try?  If you did, it takes bravery to face rejection or getting hurt to try.  You don’t know unless you try.  Don’t lash out at yourself because it wasn’t perfect, or you lost ground.  It rarely is.  The point is what did you do that you might have otherwise.
 
If you tried, you were brave.  If you didn’t, there’s always tomorrow.  There are days where you’re going to get stuck in your head.  That’s ok.  You might have to work towards it.  That’s ok too. 
 
Nobody says that you must accomplish everything today.  It can be a progression towards your goal.  The question is did you try?

What Lights You Up?

Awakenings are typically challenging and that’s exactly what you’ve been going through.  An awakening to what?  It’s different to everyone.

You’re being shown a different way to life.  What do you value?  Who are you?  Each of these are valid questions that can change over the course of time.  You’re meant to shift and evolve as a person.

You came into this life with certain traits and characteristics, but even those have a light side and a shadow side.  Part of your mission is the life is to step out of the shadows and into the light.

Just you as a person, a business can change and evolve.  When I first started my business almost 2 years ago now, I have one set of skills and I’m working on evolving some of my lesser formed skills.  The most prevalent being astrology.  I’ve always loved astrology, but couldn’t figure out how to put the pieces together.  I’ve taken several courses, but this week the how was revealed to me.

Part of coaching is accountability.  You’re my accountability over the new few months. I’m going to being doing practice astrology charts for you, if you’re interested.  The only way for me to learn is to do.  If you’re interested in being on my list in June or July, hit reply and let me know.

Like me, you’ve been learning something and shifting it into something different.  You’re meant to evolve.  You’re sent here to learn.  Life would be boring if you never learned anything new.

Evolution is a natural part of life.  You’re not meant to be the same.  You’re meant to travel a path.  That path will have a fork in the road that can go different ways.  The path you choose is yours.  You’re allowed to make different choices now, then you would’ve in the past.  It’s a natural progression.

Where do you want to go?  Who do you want to evolve into?  They’re important questions for you to ask yourself.  These questions matter.  The answers will help to shape your future.

 What evolution do you want to make?  Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Surrender

One of the most challenging things you might ever do is to learn to surrender.  You have a tendency to want to control.  To control how something happens.  Eek!  You get an idea in your head.  You may even try to force it to happen in the way you’ve seen.  But unfortunately, that’s not how things work.  You’re meant to do some work to bring that something to fruition, but the unfolding isn’t up to you. What a bummer!  You can do, do, do all you want, and somethings just won’t happen no matter what you do.   It could be you’re trying too hard or not hard enough.  Like that makes any sense.
 
There’s a balance that you need to learn to walk.  The only thing you can control is yourself.  You can’t force someone else to change, no matter how much you want to.  You can’t control how someone else feels.  You can’t make something happen when you want it to.  It would be easier if it didn’t.
 
There’s a plan for you.  Things in your life don’t always operate on your timetable.  You need to learn to surrender.  Now you may be thinking how do I do that?  Each person is a little different.  Ultimately like anything else the more you work on yourself, the more things will start to fall into place, and you won’t want to control the outcome anymore.
 
Surrendering is a practice.  It’s a place within yourself that is confident.  One that knows that things will happen as they’re meant to.  One day you may do well, the next might be more challenging.  The practice isn’t always easy.  It’s something that you work towards.  You learn to work through your fears, your desires, and your pride to open up and allow courage to enter your life.
 
Have the courage to surrender to your dreams.  Work on yourself.  Feel comfortable within yourself.  What you want will come, it may not be in the package you envisioned or happen how you would like, but it will come if you can step back and surrender.

What Did You Find Out?

Did you have a realization?  Any epiphany this last week?  If you did, great!   If not, that is ok.  You might not have put the pieces together or there could be another reason altogether.
 
But let’s speak about when you did have the realization.  Did pieces seem to come together?  Do you know you next steps?  Maybe not quite yet.  It’s a process after all.  Every person is different.  Sometimes you’re drip-fed information.  Other times it just dawns on you.
 
The bigger question is what do you do with the information?  It depends on what it is.  Maybe you’ve learned something about yourself and how you’ve behaved in the past.  You can take that information and change how you react in the present moment.  Maybe you’ve kept yourself from revealing something in the past, so you work up the courage to reveal it now.  You might not be ready yet, but you’re ready to work on it.  Wherever you choose to start is what’s best for you.
 
The point is that you make a shift.  You use the epiphany to help you move forward towards the life or wish you desire.  We don’t have realizations to do nothing with them.  We’re meant to make adjustments.  We’re not supposed to have static lives.  Evolution is important to who you are as a person.  It can change your life if you allow it.
 
Have you been having lots of dreams lately?  Your messages could be coming through your dreams or a song that you hear repeatedly on the radio.  We’re given the information; we don’t always realize what it means.
 
If you’re still having trouble, talk it out with someone else.  Maybe that conversation will lead you where you’re meant to go.
 
Use what you’ve found out to take steps towards your goals.  You can achieve them.

Have You Ever?

Have you ever been angry or upset about something that you shouldn’t have been?  Most likely it isn’t about this event at all, but a past event.  It could even be one that you remember nothing about.
 
This happens all the time. It’s nothing to be worried about.  You’re not losing your mind, but it’s a moment to think.  Why do you feel this way?  It’s a moment to heal.
 
There is something in your life that needs to be healed.  I don’t care who you are.  It doesn’t matter if you’ve done healing work in the past.  There’s always something within the needs to be healed.
 
With Mercury still in retrograde, it’s a perfect time to look at what people have said to you in the past.  How did you interpret it?  Did it impact you?  If it comes to mind, you’re probably ready to let it go.
 
To grow and expand as a person and to live a happier, more empowered life, you need to release something from the past.
 
The next question is typically how.  That’s a little complicated because it depends.  Maybe you need to express your suppressed emotions.  You might need to talk with someone.  Your energy field may need some fine-tuning.  You could need to understand who you are as a person and why you’re here.  Only you can indicate the direction your healing will go in.  Only you can dictate where to begin.
 
A lot can happen in childhood.  It may be deeply engrained, but you have no memory of it.  Energy work can be especially helpful in these situations.  This was where I started.  My earliest memory is at the age of 6, but a lot happened to me from the time I was born until 6.  My body experienced trauma from having seizures.  The medical testing to determine what was happening.  The trials and errors that are part of the process.  It may be a good thing, but none of those events are part of my memory.  I had to find a way to relieve the trauma.  That’s where energy work came in.  Then more traditional therapeutic processes for the memories that I did have.
 
Memories are tricky.  They are a part of you whether you believe it or not.  They make up who you are.  It’s time to heal some of those past memories.

What’s Coming Up?

What’s rising to the surface for you this week?  It’s coming up for a reason.  Don’t just stuff it back down.  You tend to push those “bad” emotions down but isn’t the time to do that.  Become aware of what your emotions are trying to tell you.
 
Awareness is everything.  It’s the path forward to a new life.  Are you angry?  Don’t just lash out.  What are you angry about?  How does it relate to your past?  It’s always connected to the past.  It rarely has anything to do with the present moment.
 
When someone texts you asking questions.  Maybe it’s questions you’ve already answered.  Does it piss you off!  Maybe it’s because your boundaries are being infringed upon.  Maybe it’s because you feel like no one listens to you.  Take a step back before you tell the person where to go and how to get there.
 
To get to the bottom of the emotion you have to be aware.  Aware of what that emotion is trying to tell you.  Emotions aren’t the only thing that can be trying to get your attention.
 
Maybe you’ve been having lots of dreams recently.  What are they trying to tell you?  Maybe you’ve been going about an obstacle the wrong way.  Your dream could be providing you with instructions to adjust your tactics.
 
Are you the type of person that likes to skip to the end of the book and find out what happens?  Life isn’t like that.  You can’t just skip to the end.  You must go through the messy stuff to get to the good part.
 
You have to become aware of what you’re thinking.  Aware of what you’re feeling.  Why do you think or feel that way?  It’s all a part of what you’re learning right now, in this moment.  You’re meant to dig in.  Uncover the secrets and expose them to the light,

It’s Time To…

What do you want 2021 to look like?  A lot of the structures in your life were demolished in 2020.  You can build something new.  Something different.  Are you ready?
 
It’s so easy to get stuck in the mindset of poor me.  Things never seem to work out for me.  But you don’t have to live there.  You can create something new.  Something different.  You can build a life that you love.
 
Maybe you’ll be one of the fortunate ones and with a snap of your fingers, it will be different.  But let me tell you a secret, it rarely happens that way.  You must process your old life first.  How did you end up where you are?  It’s not an easy process.  There’s a reason that people stay the way they are.  It requires work and effort.  How bad do you want it?
 
Are you willing to take the leap?  Are you willing to put in the work?  It would be easier if things did just magically happen.  You must demonstrate how badly you want it. 
 
The lessons that you’ve experienced have made you who you are.  You lived through them for a reason.  They’re part of your life’s journey, but you don’t have to stay there.
 
We can get guidance from our intuition, oracle/tarot cards, astrology, numerology, etc., but ultimately you have the final say over how your life turns out. It’s yours to live as you wish.  So, what are you going to do?
 
Every change starts with a small step.  You can do this if you want to.
 
It’s never easy to move past your fear or swallow your pride, but there’s so much joy on the other side knowing that you did something that terrified you and it turned out ok.
 
A leap of faith is challenging, but you must have hope.  Be optimistic that your world can be better.  It can be what you want it to be, the effort is up to you.
 
Do you ever have a thought that doesn’t leave?  A thought that says you should do this.  Start there.  You don’t have to change everything overnight.  Work through the pain and see what lies on the other side on your timetable.
