New Ways of Thinking

It’s so easy to think about the same way that you always have, but what if that way is outdated?  Just because you’ve always done things that way doesn’t mean it’s the only way. The universe is encouraging you to think about things differently right now.
 
There is a Full Moon in Capricorn coming on July 13 at 2:38 pm.  The Full Moon is also in opposition to Mercury in Cancer.  You’re being guided to let go of these ways of thinking that no longer serve you,
 
Look at the world around you.  There are lots of ways of thinking or looking at things that now seem outdated.  The rights of women that many of us are facing are outdated compared to when many of our laws around the United States were implemented: the rights of minorities, the rights of people of different sexual orientations, the classification of gender.  The list goes on and on.  It’s time to take a look at what it means to be a person with rights. 
 
Look at your opinions.  Are your opinions more valid than other person’s opinions?  No, they’re opinions, not facts.  What you value may be different than what someone else values, does that make it any less valuable to you?  
 
Each one of us is being asked to have a new perspective.  It’s so easy to just continue down the path of life and do things the way you always have, but has that way of doing things made you happy?  There are so many unhappy people, and you could be one of them.  A new way of doing things can seem bad or overwhelming, but what if it’s not? 
 
As I have made changes in my life, I have had to look at what I have thought and been taught.   Every time fear has come to the surface, the same question runs through my mind.  What if I can’t?  And then I get the response, but what if you can? 
 
You don’t have to act right away, you can and should take some time to process a new approach to thinking, but next time what if comes to your mind, try and flip it and see what happens.  If it doesn’t work, you can always do it differently, but maybe, just maybe, it will work, and you could be on your way to a new approach to life.

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.

Transformation Through Destruction

Are you in the process of transforming your life?  You’re not alone.  Pluto, the planet and transformation, destruction, and rebirth is still in Capricorn, where it’s been since 2008, but is really making its presence known. 

In January of 2020, Saturn and Pluto had a conjunction, which many say began the world that we’re now living in.  COVID -19 changed your life as you knew it.  The repercussions of that aspect have been with us for more than 2 years, but Pluto isn’t done.

On February 20, the United States began the first of its 3 Pluto Returns (there’s debate as to whether this happens now or later).  The next Pluto Returns take place on July 11 and December 28 at 27 degrees Capricorn. One of the keywords for Capricorn is structures.  Pluto in Capricorn has been transforming our structures personally and globally, but things are about to get kicked up a notch.

Venus, Mars, and Capricorn form a triple conjunction in Capricorn on March 3.  Major revisions are starting to take place.  Fears, insecurities, and shadows are rising to the surface.  It’s time for you to face your feelings about where you need to make changes.  These energies may be deeply rooted and will most likely be uncomfortable.  Rebirth isn’t meant to be easy.  You’re being asked to grow into the person that you’re meant to be.  This is a time for you to question the direction of your life.  Where are you going?  What do you want it to look like?

Take this Plutonian energy and channel it into rebuilding your life.  Use the energy to your advantage.  It’s never easy to change or to look at the dark side of life, but when you do light begins to emerge.  You can’t have light without the dark. 

Because there are 3 passes of Pluto this year, you have an opportunity to do it gradually.  The transformation doesn’t have to happen overnight.  You can take some time and ponder it, but with Mars being involved, it wants you to start moving.  The time is now.  Start doing the work if you haven’t already.  Use your imagination to create your dreams. 

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

Who Would Have Thought?

Who would have thought? Just when it seems like things are coming together, something happens that makes you question. You can do everything right and still have what you were fearful of happening.
 
Some days it’s challenging to be an optimist. To believe that everything is going to work out. Life can make you question. Trying to live life on the straight and narrow, rarely happens how you expect.
 
Who would have thought almost 2 years in, we would still be in the midst of a pandemic. Right now at-home tests are a rare commodity and fakes are being sold. What at one point would have been a cold can now be COVID. With symptoms where you would have gone to work and worked through it, now you have to stay home.
 
Everything changed in March of 2020 and we’re still not out of the woods. Maybe the lesson hasn’t been learned yet. Astrologers are saying this isn’t over. More variants can come. We could face another shutdown. Look at the number of cases.
 
When will this end? It’s hard to say. Most pandemics historically last at least 2 years. Just remember life is a marathon, not a sprint. You can’t predict what life is going to throw your way.
 
Do the best you can each day. Do what you can to keep yourself and those around you safe. Take extra precautions if need be. We will get through this together.

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.

Ready or Not?

Ready or not here it comes?  2021 has been all about change.  There’s no going back to the way your life was.  Your life is going to be different moving forward.  How your life will be different is up to you.
 
2021 has given you the opportunity to build a new structure for your life.  You can see what the universe has had in store for you by looking at the world around you.  It would be nice if things could stay the way they were, but that’s not how life works.  It’s constantly evolving and changing.  You’re meant to evolve.  You’re not meant to stay in one place, although wouldn’t it be nice if you could?
 
What does 2022 have in store for you?  That’s unknown at this point.  What is known is that 2022 is a continuation of what you began in 2020 and 2021.  You’re meant to become a better and more authentic you.  There’s no more living based on what other people expect of you.  If you’re not happy, the universe is going to make it more and more difficult for you to stay stuck.  When you’re stuck, typically it’s because you’re fearful.  Fearful of what you may ask.  It could be any number of things.  You’re the only one with the answer to that question. If you don’t know, then ask for some guidance.  The universe will give you a little nudge in the right direction. 
 
The hardest part sometimes is to ask for help.  Whether it’s asking for help from your family and friends or even just the universe.  To let things unfold as they’re meant to.  You can’t push, no matter how hard you want something to happen, it can’t be forced.  There could be any number of reasons why, but you have to trust that what is meant for you cannot pass you by.  Take some time this week and start working on what you want your 2022 to look like.  Do you want a new job or someone to share it with?  Start to visualize that life and let the universe help guide you.  It will give you directions along the way, just follow the steps and begin 2022 with the intention of welcoming in what’s in your highest and best good.

It’s A Mistake!

I’m sure you’ve made a mistake.  The issue isn’t that you’ve made a mistake, but how have you dealt with it? Have you tried to fix the mistake, or do you just keep plowing ahead as though you haven’t made one? It could depend on the mistake.
 
This time of year, is perfect for trying to fix mistakes of the past or for forgiveness, whether it be to forgive yourself or others.  You may beat yourself up because you didn’t know something.  It’s ok that you didn’t know, the question is what do you do now that you know? 
 
There are things that you’ve learned that you had no way of knowing.  The past 18 months have been all about experiencing life in a way that you and no one else could have predicted. The life before March 2020 is gone and you can’t go back, but you can move forward and forgive for what you didn’t know.
 
Fear can stop you from living the life that you’ve dreamed.  The fear of being wrong can cause you to make mistakes. The idea that you might not be good enough to experience that dream is something that is real. After doing a lot of soul searching, you might start to feel differently. You wish that you’d known this information back before you made these choices.  You can choose again. I’m not talking about using a time machine, but you can do today what you didn’t do yesterday.  By starting to act differently, you can begin to change the mistakes of your past.
 
You do deserve to have the life that you’ve dreamed of.  You don’t have to carry the baggage of your past with you everywhere you go.  You can let it go. It doesn’t have to control you the way it always has.   This is a time for a new beginning.

What’s Rising to the Surface?

What emotions have been coming to the surface for you? Are you angry or sad or don’t know quite what to think?  The same thing keeps happening. It’s eclipse season and anything is possible.
 
The nodal axis is the process of switching from Gemini – Sagittarius to Taurus - Scorpio, from mutable to fixed. If you know your birth time, it’s a perfect time to see where Taurus and Scorpio lie in your chart.  What might be coming up for you? I’m a Gemini Rising, so Scorpio is in my 6th house (the house of daily life and health) and Taurus is in my 12th house (the house of hidden things).  The houses contain more than just this, but for simplicity purposes, we will keep it basic. Before the eclipses even start, you can start to see things shifting. My life is shifting from a focus on me (1st house) and my relationships (7th house) to what’s hidden (12th house) and my daily life (6th house). 
 
There are things from my past that I have kept hidden or didn’t know about that are starting to come up.  What has been keeping me blocked from moving forward? Where do I want to go and what is stopping me? My fears have always played the biggest role in stopping me. From the time I was a child, the dark and mysterious (Scorpio Sun) have fascinated me but stepping outside of my comfort zone and putting my trust in other people has held me back. There were a number of people that let me down and unfortunately for myself, I paid more attention to what they said to me than the people who showed me that they loved me and cared about me. For much of my life, I chose fear over love. I was too afraid to put myself out there and go for what I really wanted. In the last few years, I’ve begun to unravel that thread.  I started doing something with my life that I love. Not listening as much to what other people think about what I do, but there’s still more.  I’m having to allow people to get to know the dark and mysterious me.  I have to let people in and get to know me.
 
Like anything, this isn’t a journey that happens overnight.  It’s a process.  None of us are perfect. Not you and not me. There’s something that we’re all working on.  The question is, are you doing the work or are you allowing your past to control you? My past controlled me for a long time. More time than I would like to admit, but little by little, the past can be let go of. The emotions can be released. One day you can think about the past without breaking down into tears. You can appreciate the moments that make up a part of who you are. There may still be a sense that you wish you had realized it earlier, but it’s ok.  You can change today.

Are You Feeling Alone?

Have you been feeling rather isolated lately?   Either by choice or the nature of life.  COVID-19 has changed so many people’s lives, it’s not particularly surprising that one of those maybe the feeling of isolation.
 
I have experienced isolation in many ways.  As a teenager, I was hurt by a friend and could no longer feel that I could trust people.  My method of coping was to hang out in my room and watch television.  I would live vicariously through other people’s lives, until one day I decided that it was time for me to venture back out into the world.  I still had trust issues, but the only way to move past it, is to try it, so I started trying to learn to trust people again.  It’s had its ups and downs over the years, but at least I have emerged from my room. 
 
When COVID-19 started, I returned to this pattern, but for a different reason.  The fear was still there, but it wasn’t an issue of whether I could trust people, but I was trying to protect myself and those I love.  I came out of full isolation mode in June of 2020 when I went back to work, but there was still a piece that felt that I needed to protect the people that I care about, so I went to the grocery store and to work and not too much else. 
 
Just within the last few months, I’ve started to emerge a little bit, I’m going shopping in stores again, fully masked of course.  In October, I went to my cousin’s wedding.  You either had to prove your vaccination status or provide a negative COVID test within 48 hours of the event.  I went to a hotel, with a bottle of disinfectant, just to be on the safe side, and nothing happened.  I stepped out of my comfort zone, and nothing had happened.  I started to imagine the possibilities.  Maybe life can return to some sort of normal.
 
The next week, I found out someone that I know and had encountered had come down with COVID-19.  I went back to the end of March 2020.  I quarantined in my room.  I was masked, if I had to come out and my bottle of disinfectant, went everywhere with me.  I passed 2 negative COVID tests before I emerged.  The stress that weighed on me that week is one that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.  All the what-ifs came to mind.  I had to protect myself and the people that I care about.
 
My story over the course of my teenage years, the past year, or the past month, maybe something that you can relate to.  It’s not unique and one that so many of you encounter.  How do you deal with the unexpected?  Do you run and hide?  Is there a reason for you to isolate and quarantine?  Either way, the result is the same.  The feeling of being alone. 
 
As an introvert, I need some time alone, but an entire week alone was a little more alone time than I bargained for.  There are people out there, that live this life every day.  It’s not the healthiest way to live and can lead to feelings of depression, even for the healthiest among us. 
 
What can you do to help someone who’s feeling alone or isolated themselves?  The answer may be felt like nothing, but human companionship is one of the necessities on this journey called life.  You need people around you to feel alive and guide you through the lessons of life.  This isn’t a time to isolate yourself from the traumas of the world, no matter how much easier it may be.

What is Going on with Everyone?

Have you noticed that people seem to be angrier and ruder than normal lately?  There doesn’t seem to be any wiggle room anymore for compassion towards others.  People are at their wit's end and just can’t take anything else.  It’s my way or the highway.
 
Remember you always have a choice.  It may not seem like it at the time, but you do have a choice.  Lots of businesses are having to change their prices and policies to keep up with the changing times, whether it be people’s new habits or the price of doing business.  Your choice in that moment is to accept their pricing and policies as they now stand and continue doing business with them or to go somewhere else.  Sending angry emails and text messages don’t get you where you want to be.  It may feel great at that moment, but compassion will get you further.  The person that read that angry message rarely has anything to do with the change that you’re upset about.  That person is just doing the job that they’re paid to do.  All that happens is you make that person’s day more difficult.
 
It seems that a boiling point as been reached.  Are you one of the people that has been on the receiving end of someone else’s tirade, or have you been one that’s been taking your emotions out on those around you?  Either way, it probably doesn’t feel great after that initial moment.  The most helpful thing that you can do is to think before you react.  If you must respond, do it with kindness.  Respect our people’s boundaries and know there is a reason that a boundary is in place. 
 
You always have a choice in how you respond.  If you need someone else’s opinion before you respond, seek it.  Think about your response first.  If you’re having a conversation, tell the person that you need a moment to think about it and will get back to them with a response.  Always remember that even when it doesn’t seem like it you have options.  It may not be what you want, but you do have a choice.
