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!

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

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.

Plunge Into the Depths

Mercury has now stationed direct.  Yay! But, remember the shadow period of Mercury retrograde typically lasts about 2 weeks, so it’s still active.  On June 10, Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn.
 
Trines tend to be a harmonious aspect, so it’s one that’s often overlooked for self-development work, but it can help.  Mercury is asking questions of Pluto and wants to know its secrets.  Pluto is your deepest emotional wound.  Pluto wounds tend to be unconscious, but what happens when you make it conscious?  You’ve opened up another whole can of worms to work with.
 
Pluto wounds are emotional.  They tend to lead to tears, but if you start working with it, it can truly begin to change your life.  Now that Mercury is direct, what secrets were revealed to you.  Did you learn about your Pluto wounding?  Could it change the direction of your life, if you make it change?  There’s a good possibility that the answer is yes. The secret revealed could change your life, but what do you do.  Do you act or do you stay with the known road?
 
Mercury trine Pluto is a perfect time to investigate the inner workings of yourself.  How do you tick?  You can alter the course of your life.   The hardest step is always the first.  Inner work is hard, there are no 2 ways about it.  It may be one of the most difficult things that you encounter, but it can also be the most rewarding and empowering decisions that you make. 
 
Are you ready to change your life?  You don’t have to act, just yet.  You can start with the preliminary work.  Begin with the investigation.  No decisions have to be made during an investigation; you’re just gathering information. 
 
What information are you starting to gather?  Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

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.
 
What new path are you in the process of taking?    Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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