Greetings fellow Earth travelers!
The current astrological energies have been intense! We’ve had Saturn conjunct the South Node happening since April and WOW for some of us (and by some of us I mean me) it has been a doozy! Maybe you can relate? This dynamic gives extra weight to our past and how we perceive it than it may not actually carry during lighter astrological transits.
The thing about this kind of dynamic is that we can take it on consciously and deal with our pasts better and more effectively than ever before, and emerge lighter and more free on the other side of the experience. The dark moon in Cancer (Sign of the Moon) gives us the extra emotional intelligence we need to navigate this period and with the approaching New Moon and Mercury direct, we can emerge from the experience renewed.
Sometimes the process can make us feel like we’re being broken down – it reminds me of a tweet I saw yesterday that’s so apt and wonderful:
“People talk about caterpillars becoming butterflies as though they just go into a cocoon, slap on wings and are good to go. Caterpillars have to dissolve into a disgusting pile of goo to become butterflies. So if you’re a mess wrapped up in blankets right now, keep going.”
Self-acceptance during periods of growth (or change) is required – and even though life can feel too overwhelming to even think about more than just getting through the day, adding a layer of shame to that will only prolong it and/or make it painful. Accepting the “what is” instead of resenting it, affords us remarkable freedom.
What if we could fully accept ourselves as we are in this moment, and let go of the idea that our human vessels are currency or tools for wordly credibility? They are, however, a physical entity that reflects what’s going on in our hearts and minds. A shift in thoughts and feels will result in a shift in the physical vehicle as well. (The reverse is also true: the physical can affect the mental/emotional). We should all endeavor to accept ourselves for what we are. Right now. Right here. Go ahead, try it. I’ll join you.
Me: “Hi Self.”
Me: ” I love and accept you exactly as you are right now.”
Self: *Beaming* “Thank You. I love you, too.”
Cells, Immune System, Energy: “SQUEEEEE!” *Burst, pop, giggle, grin.*
See? That wasn’t hard at all, was it? Rinse, repeat.
The NEW MOON is Wednesday and Mercury is also turning direct! That means more ease is nigh. Embrace yourself in all your you-ness in whatever state it is in. Your body and your life will thank you.
As always, I am with you on the journey. If you want to take this conversation deeper and get clarity and comfort where you are at on your journey, book a reading. I would love to connect with you, dear one.
With my deep affection,
