The Feminine Warrior

Happy Independence Day!  It may not feel like there’s a whole lot to celebrate as a nation.  Our rights as women have been taken away and there are people out there who would like to take more of our rights.
 
It’s easy to get trapped in the negative, but it’s important to not remain there and realize that women still have power.  Females in the past have fought this same fight before and have made progress.  It can be done again.
 
The Sun in Cancer can be representative of the feminine.  It’s a nurturing and caring energy and on July 8 at 9:23 am it is Square Chiron in Aries.  Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer and it’s in the sign of Aries, the warrior.
 
There’s an opportunity here.  The battle isn’t going to be won overnight, but it can and will be fought.  There’s an opportunity for women to empower themselves.
 
As women, we have been shamed and made to feel guilty for making decisions that are right for us.  Why?  Because they may not be right for the masculine.  Women and their role in society for centuries had been reduced to the role of caretakers.  While that may be one part of being a woman, that isn’t all that we are.  The patriarchy has put us made us “second-class” citizens for centuries.  The time for the feminine to put herself on equal ground is now.
 
It's time to fight.  How do we fight?  It hasn’t been entirely revealed quite yet, but one way is to vote.  Women died for us to have the right to vote and it’s time to use it.  As a country, the United States is in its Pluto Return.  The United States’ Pluto is in Capricorn.  Capricorn is the structure.  At that time, women were the property of men and it shows in the founding documentation of our country.  And it’s not just women that were property, but people of other races.  The United States founding documentation represents rich white men.
 
The United States is not composed of entirely rich white men.  The United States is composed of women and men from all regions of the world and it’s time that our laws reflect that.  With the U.S.’s Pluto Return we have an opportunity to change course.  To make sure that we are heard and have a role in society that is representative of who women really are.  Women do not have to feel shame or guilt for being who they are any longer.  We can become a Feminine Warrior and have power over the things in life that are important to us. It’s time to get battle-ready!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Have you…

Have you learned the lessons that you’ve been meant to learn this year?  In the last week, the planets Mercury and Jupiter have gone direct, but we’re still in their shadows, plus the shadows of Pluto and Saturn, which turned direct earlier this month.
 
The planets have been revealing secrets and lessons that we’re meant to learn.  Have you changed the way that you react, or are you planning on moving forward in a different way?  Are you going to pursue a new path?  Have you been rethinking the patterns of your life or that of your family?
 
There isn’t one lesson to learn in life.  A new one can be revealed to you each day.  But just because you may have changed, doesn’t mean that the people around you have.  There may still be pieces of the puzzle to be revealed.  Information is always coming.  You don’t yet know everything that you need to know, but you have enough to start.
 
Start working through the information and the lessons provided.   What’s the first step to take?  That first step could take you a while to work through.  Take all the time you need unless you have a deadline.  The universe will reveal what you need to know when you need to know it.  You don’t need all the pieces to start.
 
When you work with a blank canvas, you don’t know what the result is going to be.  You just start.  Start painting and work towards a product.

Can You Only See It This Way?

Do you have a set dream or vision that you can only see happen in a specific way?  It’s time to introduce some flexibility into your vision.
 
When you can only see one path, it makes it challenging for the universe to help things along.  Things rarely happen in the exact way we envision them.
 
This is a time to release your expectations.  Things don’t always happen how you expect.  What happens then?  Disappointment.  Beating yourself up.  Wondering what happened?  Where did I go wrong?  You do down this rabbit hole that can be challenging to dig yourself out of.
 
Letting go of expectations isn’t easy.  They seem to happen quite naturally.  Letting of anything can be complicated but may be necessary to make the result a reality. 
 
The process of manifestation doesn’t always work how you expect.  Emotions get in the way.  Reality gets in the way.  Other people get in the way.  The list goes on.
 
Cut the ties to your expectations.  In whatever way best serves you.  There is no right way.
 
This doesn’t mean that you don’t try to work towards your vision.  The path will begin the journey.  Follow the clues.  Follow the signs.  Trust your intuition.  And be open to what presents itself.

Shh . . . It’s A Secret!

Secrets have a way of coming out, but sometimes they have to be revealed.  There are different types of secrets.  There are the types that are self-serving.  Where you want to do something, and you know you shouldn’t.  It goes against societal norms, such as an affair.  There’s also the sort, it may be self-serving to a degree but you’re not ready to share.  You have the intention of the secret one day being revealed, but you need some time before it is.
 
What type of secret are you hiding?  Everyone has secrets.  I can guarantee that you have one right now.  Your life isn’t an open book, you’re allowed to keep things to yourself.  The question is why is it a secret?
 
It’s the intent that matters sometimes more than the secret itself.  Although I wouldn’t encourage that logic if an affair is involved.
 
Why am I discussing secrets?  Things have recently become clear to you. You may want to keep it to yourself while you put the pieces together.  You aren’t quite ready to confide in someone else.  You’re afraid of what they might say or you don’t know what to do.
 
You are allowed to have your reasons.  There is nothing wrong with keeping it to yourself and working through the pieces, but be aware secrets tend to be revealed at some point.  It can come out when you least expect it. 
 
That could have just happened to you within the last few weeks or could be to come.  Be prepared for what happens when the secret does come out.  Your world and the one around you can change in an instant.
 
Information is rising to the surface.  All will be revealed.  It doesn’t always happen the way you plan.  Be aware.

Just Release

Over the course of the last few weeks, something has been revealed to you.  You’re receiving clarity on something.  You’re going to start working toward a goal soon, but before you do, look at what’s rising to the surface.
 
Emotions are coming up.  You may feel confused, sad, guilt, fear, or any number of other emotions.  You may feel a lot of emotion at once or could even just feel numb.  You’re at a point where the emotion needs to be addressed and released.
 
You’re shifting and changing.  It’s what 2021 is all about.  Your life isn’t going to be the same and there can be a grieving process for what might not have gone entirely as planned.  You had your sights set on it, but it just didn’t work that way.
 
It’s ok.  Sometimes you just need to let it unfold as it’s meant to.  It doesn’t always go as planned.  You have a tendency to want to avoid pain.  You’re not alone in this.
 
It’s important to step into the pain.  You shouldn’t try to ignore it.  It’s like a wave.  In order to ride a wave, you have to go into it.
 
You can’t avoid the emotions.  No matter how hard you try.  If you try to ignore the pain, it could catch up with you.  You want to release the pain.  Release the past.  Move into the next chapter with a little less baggage.
 
As you move through this time, give yourself the space you need.  You may be tired, sleep.  You may not want to speak to anyone, don’t.
 
Things will start moving soon, so process.  Feel whatever rises to the surface.  It will all be ok.

It’s An Evolution!

Have you been evolving lately?  If not, how can you evolve?  This year is about rebuilding the structure of your life.  January 2022 is not meant to look the same as January 2021.  It’s supposed to be different.
 
Change can be hard.  Especially when you’re not ready.  Is there a way you can get ready?  Maybe take it in small pieces.  Or maybe you need someone to help push you past the fear.  Fear can stop you in your tracks and keep you from growing.  Life is easier when you know what to expect.  But sometimes you just need a little push.  A push that moves you from your head into action.
 
I needed one a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been preparing to bring in-person Reiki sessions to a hair salon that I work at.  I had all the pieces ready.  I just needed to pick a date.  My boss and I were having a conversation and told me just to pick one.  I sat down and picked a date that gave me some time to get everything aligned, but it’s in the books.
 
The only way to get past fear is to do it.  While I’m in preparation mode, I’ve also been working on ways to combine Reiki and astrology.  I’m taking some medical astrology classes.  It will probably take me until the end of the year to fully combine it, but I’ve started.  I have a plan to grow, and my business is evolving.  I’m evolving.
 
You may find yourself in a place that you never pictured.  It’s ok.  I’m right there with you.  You could love how it turns out, but you’ll never know if you don’t try.  You have to begin somewhere.
