Look Within

It may not seem like it at the beginning of the week but is a week to look within yourself.  Make sure to take your time in making decisions, because confusion and misunderstandings are possible.
 
Mercury re-enters Gemini after it’s retrograde period on June 13 at 11:27 am.  Mercury is going to want to be social and meet up with friends.  It’s going to want to talk until the wee hours of the morning, but Mercury is just a distraction to what you’re feeling.
 
Mars in Aries is conjunct Chiron in Aries on June 15 at 10:17 am.  Mars is wanting to take some action on your wounds.  The Sun in Gemini is Square Neptune in Pisces on June 16 at 09:41 am.  Confusions and misunderstandings are underway,  Mercury in Gemini is Square Saturn in Aquarius on June 18 at 5:32 pm.  You could feel sad and disappointed.  Things haven’t turned out quite how you expected.
 
During its retrograde, Mercury was busy telling you secrets and revealing what you needed to know.   Now that Mercury is direct, you’re trying to make some further discoveries and make sense of what you’ve learned over the last few weeks, but Neptune in Pisces is creating a fog.  You don’t quite have all of the information yet that you need to make the necessary changes.
 
When confusion is abound, it’s a great time to look within.  Examine why you’re feeling sad or disappointed or angry.  It can be so easy to try and avoid your emotions.  They’re just getting in the way of your day.  Emotions arise for a reason.  Don’t ignore them.  Look at them.  Take your time and don’t rush to judgment or action.  You’re going to want to act quickly with Mars being in Aries, but take a deep breath and take your time. 
 
This isn’t a sprint.  This is a process that takes time.  You’re getting to feel crappy before you feel better, but once you begin the process, you will reach a place where the past doesn’t have the same ability to control you that it once did.  You can begin to feel free.  Isn’t freedom what you’re ultimately searching for?

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.

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. 

Always & Forever,

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.

Shadow Comes to Light

The time to confront all of the information, good or bad, is about to be upon you.  The Sun in Aries is Square Pluto in Capricorn on April 18.  You may have been able to ignore your shadow side, but that doesn’t mean that it has disappeared or has miraculously resolved itself.  Like it or not you still have work to do.
 
Shadow work is something that never entirely ends, which is why it can drive you crazy.  Shadow work is like peeling away the layers of an onion, once one layer is gone, it's time to move on to the next.  You may not have the patience for the process to unfold, but it will help to grow and reach new heights that you never quite dreamed were possible.
 
Are you trying to control situations or people that you can’t quite control or have you been using power in the wrong way?  These are two possibilities about how this aspect could show up in your life.
 
The idea of confronting and changing something that is no longer working for you is one that may terrify you.  Sometimes the devil that you know is better than the one that you don’t.  This isn’t one of those times.  The universe wants you to succeed.  It wants you to become the person that you’re meant to be.  The only way to do that is to make changes.  Change isn’t easy, especially when it’s something that’s meaningful, but it’s the only want to get where you need to go.
 
The Sun in Aries loves to begin.  It’s a perfect time to start the process if you haven’t already.  If you have started the process, give yourself a big pat on the back and keep going.  This isn’t the time to stop now.

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.

I See Dead People!

I See Dead People.  No, this isn’t like The Sixth Sense.  Mercury went retrograde on January 14 and will be retrograde until February 3.  Mercury has some tales to tell during this Mercury retrograde.

Have been feeling like you’ve been more emotional during the last few days?  Are shadows from your past starting to rise up?  Are people coming back from your past with new information?  You thought you knew, but maybe you don’t. 

Your shadows are coming back to give you more details.  All of your shadows are presented to you in layers.  You approach the first part and come to terms with that means and then the next presents itself.  This is the time to approach your past feelings and emotions and come to terms with how that is holding you back.  Once Mercury goes direct, all of the planets will be ready to move forward.  There won’t be any retrogrades until the end of April, which means that you will have a great opportunity to begin to move forward.  But before you can go forward, you have to go back.  This is that opportunity.  Delve into the past that is being presented to you.  You’re ready to move past it. 

As we moved in 2022, I came to realize that for me to move forward, I needed to let go of past betrayals.  I’ve done a lot of work on this in the past, but another layer had presented itself.  I cut the cords to those past betrayals, but there was one more that I hadn’t thought about.  It presented itself just as Mercury went retrograde.  So it’s time to cut cords and release an area of my life that has held me back for far longer than I would like to admit.  In order for me to truly shine my light out into the world, I have to release the baggage of betrayal and begin to move forward.

This work isn’t easy, but it is necessary to become the most empowered version of yourself that you’re seeking.  The universe wants you to succeed.  Are you willing to give it a try?

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.
