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 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.

What Are You Looking to Grow?

Have you learned anything this year, but especially the past couple of months?  Secrets are being revealed.  We’re being given our marching orders.  It’s time to grow!
 
Why do I have to?  You don’t.  It’s your choice, but growth is part of the human experience.  When you’re comfortable, you’ve stopped growing.  The best lessons from life come from those moments when you decide to take a chance and go outside your comfort zone.
 
Take a gamble.  What’s the worst thing that can happen?  You try something, it doesn’t work, and you do it differently next time.  Or maybe you tell someone that you like them, and they don’t return your interest, then you can stop wondering what if and move on to someone who does.
 
For the past year, you’ve been holed up inside your house.  You have been facing limitations, and maybe you took chances, or maybe you didn’t.  A pandemic isn’t always the right time to take a chance, but the fog is starting to lift.
 
Now is the perfect time to take what you’ve been dreaming about and put those plans into action.  Some of you have been plotting the course ahead and just need to pull the trigger while others have still been dreaming, and wondering how do I get there.  You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.
 
Take a chance.  Seize the opportunity and move forward.  Learn something new.  Experience a different way of life.  You don’t know if you don’t try.

What or Who Do You Love?

Love can be a tricky emotion to talk about.  It can feel different from one person to another.  It can be unknown.
 
Love is one of the higher vibration emotions that you can experience, but it can also involve a world of hurt.
 
As a teenager, I was friends with a person who manipulated me to the point that once I stood up for myself and fought back; I didn’t know who I was, but one thing that I did know was I never wanted to feel that way again.
 
What I didn’t know at the time is an attitude like that can prevent the good from coming in, and it didn’t stop the hurt.  The hurt still surrounded me, it became a focus.
 
One of our objectives in this life is to love others.  Hurt is a natural part of the process.  You’re going to hurt when people leave your life whether it be from moving away, dying, or an end to the relationship.
 
Hurt helps you to grow and expand.  There are lessons that you’ve learned through love and hurt that you couldn’t have grasped if it had happened in another way.  You don’t grow when all is happy in your life.  You learn from the drama, the tension, and the hurt.
 
Looking back at your life, you’ll remember moments from the good times, but the bad times helped to shape you as a person.
 
I never wanted to hurt again after that experience, but I still have those moments in my life.  Those moments led me in a new direction.  I wouldn’t be writing this blog post, if I hadn’t been fired.  I wouldn’t be who I am if I hadn’t experienced the dark times.  I’m sure you can say the same.
 
If you allow it, your hurt will lead you where you need to go.  It will take you to a new lesson.  A new way to grow.

Clean Up!

Have you been cleaning a lot recently?  Throwing things away that are broken?  Donating or selling what you no longer use?
 
Over the last year, people have been cleaning the house.  To the point where donation centers have put limitations and reminders on what they will and won’t take.
 
You may be one of the fortunate ones where cleaning up is easy.  You’ll periodically go through your belongings and toss what you don’t need anymore.  For another group of you, everything has meaning.  You can’t get rid of that, so and so owned it or so and so gave it to you.  Everything is connected to memory.  Maybe you fall somewhere in between the two extremes.
 
I’ve been resistant while the mass cleaning of people’s spaces has been going on.  Why might you ask?  Partly because of the amount of time that I would have to spend, but also because I didn’t have the energy to look through everything.  This past week, the energy shifted.  I knew it was time and I didn’t have any more excuses.
 
To manifest what you want, sometimes you must get rid of what you don’t want.  You must make space.  Making space for what you want somedays can be a challenge, but it’s necessary.
 
If your life is already full, do you truly have space for something new?  Only you can answer that question.  For now, I’ll continue making space a little bit at a time.  It may time longer, but there’s nothing that says I need to tackle it all at once.  I just have to do it.  Just cleaning up a part of the space, feels lighter.  There’s room opening for something new to enter.  Not sure what that might be yet, but it’s a start.  The intention is there.
 
Manifestation is a multi-step process.  The step that isn’t always mentioned is the decluttering process.  Yes, it is a process.  It’s not as easy as just cleaning for many.  Allow the process to unfold as it’s mean to.
 
Where are you in your decluttering process?   Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Is It The Heat Of The Moment?

Do you ever find yourself triggered?  It could be from a phone call, conversation, email or just scrolling through social media.  You desperately want to respond.  Put that other person in their place.  You want to tell them that’s not true or maybe just unleash all of your anger about something else.
 
Try something different.  Take a step back.  Let yourself get to a place where you’re calm.  Words can be unleashed in anger that you can’t take back.
 
You may find yourself having a confrontation with an employee who’s just doing their job.  You may just say something that isn’t true.  There’s a tendency to not be your best self at these moments.
 
Being triggered is meant to be a moment where you have the opportunity to see things clearly.  Triggers are meant to make you uncomfortable.  They’re meant to help you grow.  You can only truly grow in those moments.
 
When everything is going along the way you want it, are you going outside of your comfort zone?  I’m guessing the answer is no.
 
The darkness is where you learn.  It’s not meant to be all lollipops and rainbows.  You came here to learn.  What you come here to learn is for you to decide.  You aren’t meant to stay in one place.
 
So the next time you start feeling angry or uncomfortable, take a step back.  Ask yourself questions and try to come from a place that is kind to yourself and those around you.  The world could use a little more kindness.

Why Am I Alone?

Why are you alone?  It would be nice if there was a simple answer or even an answer.  You could be all by yourself or in a room filled with people and still feel alone.  These days you’re not alone in feeling that way.  There are many just like you.  The question becomes how to resolve it.  Again, there are no easy answers.  Feelings can be as powerful as anything that is experienced.
 
It's a feeling that you have to search within you to resolve.  Ask yourself why do I feel this way?  How often do I feel this way?  Maybe you experience it for a moment or it's ongoing.
 
You never expected to end up here.  You can be single or married.  It doesn’t matter.  You must look at yourself for the answers.  It would be so much easier to blame it on someone else or have someone else solve it for you.  It’s a method that has its uses but is never a long-term solution.
 
Sometimes you must explore the darkness and it must be done alone.  No one else can do it for you.
 
It can be difficult to believe there’s a reason for you feeling this way, but there’s an answer.  Maybe it’s a belief that you have.  Maybe you’re afraid.
 
There are all emotions that you can start to work with.  You must have a little bit of courage and take a leap of faith.  If it’s a fear, the only way to overcome it is through it.  If it’s a belief, that takes more effort.
 
You don’t have to feel alone.  There’s a world of people out there.  Your best friend could be right around the corner.

But I Don’t Want It to End!

Endings can be complicated and complex.  You may want something to end, but there can be emotions involved that you’re not ready to deal with yet.
 
Life comes in cycles.  There’s always a beginning, middle, and end.  But like a circle, for something new to start, you must release something that doesn’t.
 
For the new to begin, you may have to confront a fear that’s held you back for years.  You may have to speak it aloud.  Speaking what you want may be one of the hardest to do.  There’s always the chance that someone can say no.  If you have trouble just speaking it aloud, the response of no can be a blow that stops you in your tracks.  The challenging part of no can be a no for now.  But the no could signify an ending of sorts.  It could be the end of a dream and the beginning of something new.
 
You have faced challenges, many of which you wished would end, but didn’t.  You ready to start something new but needed to address something else first.
 
There is a transition that happens between endings and beginnings.  One that can often seem seamless.  One day the world seems one way and the next it's completely changed.  In March 2020, for so many, an old way of doing things ended and a new began.
 
It can be difficult to determine what keeps you from ending something, but there’s typically an element of fear involved.  Facing your fears may be one of the hardest things you do.  Others may surround you and comfort you on your journey, but they can’t live life for you.  You’re the only one who can do it.
 
For most obstacles in life, there’s no doubt that endings can be one of the hardest, but there can often be a gift on the other side.  Remember to tell yourself, that everything you want is on the other side of fear.

Curveball Coming!

Did you get a curveball thrown your way?  Something that you completely didn’t expect.  Or maybe something that you’ve been trying to avoid, and you received some news about.
 
It can be upsetting or challenging to get some news, and other times you’re jumping for joy that it happened.  Either option can change your life for better or worse.  Sometimes what you need is to take a step back and gain a little perspective.  Or maybe you’re being triggered and meant to confront it, so you can address it and become more empowered in your life.
 
Triggers are a challenge.  They’re meant to teach you something, but at that moment all you can do is think or feel what’s happening.
 
You don’t want to deal with it right now.  It’s not the time.  It’s not the place.  You have other things to do.  There are a number of reasons why.  Life will normally trigger you at the worst possible moment.  A conversation that will leave you emotional right before you need to be somewhere.  A difficult moment right in front of your co-workers.
 
You don’t want to show emotion in these moments.  You don’t want to seem defeated, angry, or name an emotion, but you’re meant to feel the emotion.  The emotion is what will help you to process the trigger.
 
Give yourself time to process the trigger, develop an action plan and gain some perspective.  Confronting your triggers is the only way for you to truly become empowered.
 
Triggers aren’t mean to be an annoyance, they just happen that way.  Triggers are meant to move you forward.  Triggers are meant to move you forward.  If you choose to ignore your trigger, that’s ok too, but it will come back.  Until you confront it, it will always return.  And the next thing it will be a little more annoying.

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.
