Breakdown to Breakthrough

Do you feel the momentum building?  You can feel it in the air around you.  Uranus in Taurus has been conjunct the North Node in Taurus for the last few weeks, but on August 1 at 4:53 pm, Mars in Taurus will conjunct this same point.
 
Uranus is the planet of awakening and revolution and the North Node is a point that you’re working towards.  Mars is the planet of action and activation.  Mars, Uranus, and the North Node are all in the sign of Taurus, a fixed sign that is extremely resistant to change but is seeking security, stability, comfort, and practicality. 
 
If you’ve been resistant to change, this may be the point where you feel like you have no choice, but to change.  When the North Node is involved in a chart, it can feel like a fated moment.  You have no other option, but to go in this new direction.  While Taurus is a fixed sign and is resistant to change, it is also one of growth.  Taurus season is when the seeds that were planted start coming to life.
 
The last two years, you’ve spent a lot of time envisioning a new future and planting the seeds for what you want to come.  Now is the time, ready or not, here it comes.  If you’ve been doing the work, you will begin to see the sprouts start to come out.  If you’ve been resistant, then it’s time for some unpredictability.  Taurus is a fixed sign, so it loves control, but the more you try and control something, the more unstable it can become.
 
Expect some surprises this week.  Whether you’re ready or not, you’re moving in a new direction.  Some things have to break down so that a breakthrough can occur.  This is that moment.  Do you have the breakdown during the earthquake or as part of the aftershocks?  Only time will tell. 
 
Try to move with the change.  It can be a challenge, especially in the moment.  Take a deep breath.  It’s time for you to grow and growth can be exhausting. Just look at children and how much they rest during a growth spurt.  Use this as your model for the week.  Try and take a time out if possible.  Remove yourself from the chaos that may be around you and search for clarity.  It’s there if you take the time to look.

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 Growth

Happy Beltane!  It is officially the halfway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.  Warmer weather in the northern hemisphere is on its way.  Beltane is the merging together of growth, fertility, and new beginnings.  When combined with the energies of yesterday’s eclipse in Taurus energy, you’re looking at a potent time.
 
Not only did yesterday’s eclipse involve the Sun and the Moon in Taurus, but also Venus, which rules Taurus, and Uranus, the planet of awakening and electricity were involved.  You can still feel the effects of the eclipse today and for the next couple of weeks.  It’s a time when a lot can feel possible, but it can also feel like you just want to stay home and hideaway.  You may feel quiet and reflective one moment and full of persistence the next.  You may feel the need to release the emotions that no longer serve you.  This could involve lots of tears or just being stubborn and not wanting to give in to the energy.
 
The universe has a plan for you, and it is revealed to us in small manageable pieces.  Pluto just went retrograde on April 29, so we’re being asked to review our darkness.  How can your darkness move you into the light?  Your shadow always has something to teach you, good or bad and Pluto in Capricorn is still transforming the structures of your life. 
 
The bull of Taurus isn’t exactly known to change.  It has fixed energy that doesn’t like to change unless it absolutely must, but this is one of those times where change seems to be required.  The world we live in has changed.  Like it or not, COVID has changed everything, and it isn’t over yet.  People desperately want things to go back to “normal”, but that just isn’t possible.  Life is different.  You will always know what it is like to wear a mask in a store or to even just know what COVID is.  There is no going back.  You can only go forward. 
 
You may resist the idea of change, but it’s required for growth.  This is a time to grow.  Just look outside your door, the planets are starting to come up out of the ground, but they’ve been taking root all winter.  There are things taking place that you aren’t privy to.  Don’t fight the energy.  If you get emotional, let the emotions happen.  There’s a reason why they’re coming up.  It can be a time of great intensity if you fight, but if you go with the flow and see what the universe has in store, you could be pleasantly surprised.

You Again?

Do you ever feel like the same problem rises to the surface repeatedly?  Just when you think you might be getting past it a new layer comes up?
 
The reason is you haven’t gotten to the root of the problem.  Until you reach the root, you’re not done.
 
Trauma work is not the easiest of work to tackle, but it’s essential to growth.  To become a happier person sometimes you have to go backward.
 
You might know that something was an issue in the past, or you’re having a conversation and getting angry and upset about something you didn’t even know was a problem.  Life can slap you beside the head sometimes, but it’s how you move forward that matters.  Do you deal with the issue, or do you run and hide?
 
Running away only gets you so far.  It will continue to rise to the surface until you face it.  It will pop up at the worst possible moments.
 
Do you want to be beholden to an emotion that can control the direction of your life?  The answer is most likely no.
 
It’s time to be uncomfortable, even when you don’t want to.  It’s time to move forward.  It’s time to live your life on your terms, not on a past emotion or someone else’s expectations.
 
You’re in the last quarter of 2021, 2022 is right around the corner.  Maybe now is the time.

Growth Hurts!

Life seems like a challenge right now.  If it doesn’t hurt, you’re not doing it right.  Now is a time to grow and expand.  Growth hurts!
 
Think back to when you were a kid.  When you grew taller, you would be tired.   You would sleep more and eat more, but eventually everything would even out.
 
Growth in life is the same way.  It hurts.  You exercise for the first time, and it hurts the next day.  Each time you work a new muscle group, it hurts again.
 
When you’re expanding your knowledge base, there’s bound to be pain involved.  That doesn’t mean that you should run though, the universe will always find you.  The next time the lesson will be a little more complex.
 
It seems you may want things to stay the same, but that’s just not possible.  Or maybe you want someone to do the hard work for you.  That’s not an option either.
 
You came here to experience life.  Growth is a natural part of life.  You don’t just go from Point A to Point E, you must go through Points B, C, and D before you get there.
 
Even when you think you have tackled this lesson, there could be another layer to work through.  No matter how much you want to, life is a process, and it doesn’t always happen overnight.  The things that you desire the most you must work for.
 
Growth is hard, but on the other side of each obstacle.  It could be everything you’ve ever wanted.  Seeds don’t grow overnight.  It can take months or even years to get the desired result.  Keep working on it, you will get there and one day you will be in awe of how much you’ve grown.

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.
