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.

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. 

Always & Forever,

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 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.

Feel the Feelings

It’s time to get ready to feel.  Feelings that you may not even have known that you had might emerge and take you by surprise.  On March 13, the Moon in Cancer is going to be in Opposition to Pluto in Capricorn.  Have you been working through your shadow?  If you haven’t there could be some surprises in store for you.

Pluto wants us to explore the dark side of life.  Exploring the dark side is how you can start to live a life filled with more joy and happiness.  You can’t have the light without the dark.  The Moon in Cancer is all about exploring what you feel.  There could be some surprises ahead for you.

Also, on March 13, there is a conjunction between the Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune all in Pisces.  The Sun is shining a light on your dreams.  What do you want your life to look like?  This is your opportunity to explore and see what that dream might look like.  Do you accept the opportunity?  Later in the week on March 17, the Moon in Virgo is going to be in Opposition to Jupiter and Neptune.  How do you feel about it?  Do you have a plan?  Is there anything that you haven’t thought of yet?

You’re being asked to look at life differently than you have in the past.  There’s always an emotional component to life.  Sometimes you don’t stop to explore those feelings, but they’re still there just waiting for you to take the time to process and ask how does it feel?  If you never stop to feel, eventually your emotions will sneak up on you and surprise you.  Emotions want to be felt one way or the other.  If you’re not comfortable with emotions, rest assured that you aren’t alone, you can try and experience them in a controlled way.  This doesn’t mean that they still might not sneak up on you, but the disruption to your life might be lessened.  You can always watch movies or listen to music that will make you feel.

Feel everything that you need to feel this week.  It’s more important than you might realize.

Is it Time for Optimism?

Last week was a doozy of a week that didn’t seem to let up.  There was an intensity to it that might have made you long for a break.  It makes you want to ask is it done yet?  It might not be over, but there’s a little bit of optimism shining through.

Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is currently drifting through Pisces, the sign of the dreamer and romantic. On March 5 Jupiter formed a conjunction with the Sun in Pisces.  Jupiter is going to expand the dreamy, romantic, optimistic nature of Pisces.  This aspect may instill a more confident feeling that leads you to believe that maybe you can move beyond the past and begin to create something new.  There’s an opportunity for growth here if you decide to seize it.

The New Moon in Pisces on March 2 has opened an opportunity to shift and have a new beginning.  Pisces is not without its sentimentality and emotionality but could create a sense of awareness and connection that could be lacking from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Optimism may seem like a fantasy land to some people, especially with everything that has happened in the last few weeks or even years.  Optimism is the sense that there’s the opportunity for you, your friends, your family, the world, etc. to move in a positive direction.  There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of optimism, especially when it can feel like everything is falling apart.  Optimism can help you to get up in the morning and have some hope.  There are times when hope and faith are all that you have.

Allow the Pisces energy to come into your life and escape into the world of your dreams.  Are you being pointed in a direction?  Do you have the courage to walk through this portal and forgive yourself for your past mistakes?  Are you willing to create something new?  The opportunity is being presented; do you seize it?  The choice is yours alone to make.

Beat Of Your Own Drum

More planets have moved into the sign of Aquarius, the sign of originality and uniqueness.  Mercury moved into Aquarius on February 14 and the sun has been in Aquarius since January 19.  Saturn had already moved into Aquarius in December 2020.  So, what does this mean?  You’re being asked to accept yourself for who you are and be yourself.

Now that can be easier said than done, but it’s doable.  Are you the type of person who has spent time trying to be someone else, only to no longer know who you are, or do you know who you are, but don’t really like that person?  There could be other types here, but let’s stick with these two for simplicity purposes.

I was one of the former, I had spent so much time trying to be who other people thought I should be that I had lost sight of who I was.  Someone who says, “oh you shouldn’t be that way,” so I would try to conform myself into that expectation.  Let me tell you, it takes a lot of energy trying to be someone that you’re not.  Just because I wasn’t like them, didn’t mean there was something wrong with me.  In fact, it was exactly the opposite.  I had something that I could offer the world as I am, that nobody else could offer, but I had to be willing to let that person out and roam free.  I used astrology, energy, and trauma work to help me unravel the puzzle of who I truly am and learn to accept me.  Now 10 years into this work, I love the person that I’ve become and can’t imagine being someone else. 

Now for the other type, you know who you are but don’t really like that person.  You’re not alone.  My question for you, is why don’t you like that person?  There are many answers to this question and none of them are wrong.  Your response to this question is the key to start moving you down the path of loving who you are.  Your uniqueness is what makes you who you are.  Everything else revolves around that. 

You have an opportunity to love who you are, not who you could one day become, but who you are right now.  Loving yourself is a process.   It doesn’t come easy and it doesn’t come overnight.  Especially as women, we’re often taught that we should meld into a mold.  We should be everything to everyone else but aren’t taught to love or care for ourselves.  The time to love yourself is now.  The time to accept yourself is now.  There isn’t another person like you and won’t be astrologically for another 25,000 years or so. Step into your authentic self and you can begin a whole new phase of your life.

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