Weekly Forecast 4/15/18 - 4/21/18
All of the things!!!!
New moon in Aries, Mercury goes direct, Saturn goes retrograde, Pluto goes retrograde, Jupiter is already retrograde.
Ok but for real, when a planet goes retrograde it's really all about bringing up old shit so we can reexamine it and make tweaks to our progress but also to see in what ways we still need to heal and in what ways we're ready for expansion and growth.
I know growing pains are uncomfortable, I know that looking at the things that scare you or make you feel weird/bad/uncomfortable isn't easy BUT, as I've said in the past, it's completely necessary in order for us to really get through it.
You guys, there is no getting AROUND doing the healing work. There is only getting though.
This is what happens when you try to get "around" it, sure you can deflect and avoid, sure you can push it down and try to forget about it but it's going to keep coming full fucking circle, it's going to keep bubbling back up to the surface to remind you that it's there and it's just going to keep coming until you heal it. It might start slow at first but then it seems like everywhere you turn there it is. So why prolong the process?
Why not just ask for it to be easy and do the work and then heal the shit and keep healing the shit whenever it comes up? I PROMISE you, it gets easier and faster each time it comes around. You get faster and better at it, you don't get sucked into the vortex of downward spiral, you're not triggered as often, it doesn't consume you. So let's get it done, so we can level you up, yeah?!
Oooooookay, so here is this week's forecast!
Teachers are everywhere. There are lessons and opportunities in everything.
You just have to know when to spot them, you just have to know that you can shift perspective.
So, with all the retrogrades coming up or ongoing, what are the lessons that keep showing up for you? What is the recurring theme that rears it's head? What knowledge and perspective can you gain from it? What healing? What medicine? What can you learn from these issues that keep popping up.
Honestly, the shit that hurts is our greatest fucking teacher...the shit that hurts is what makes us strong, the shit that hurts is what shows us what we are made of, it's what causes the change and growth and the uplevel. So rather than avoiding it, run at it, head first. EMBRACE it! The whole point of Shadow Work is to accept, love and forgive. Really, that's what it comes down to at its core. So, on another note, what have you learned or experienced that has taught you something new, or changed you for the better? What stories do you have that can help others though the same thing?
Our achievements through pain and discomfort can also help others who might be going though the same things, we can be that beacon of hope and encouragement and support to someone else who might be in the same situation we've overcome.
So I also encourage you to share, extend a hand to someone going through it. We are all the Magician just as we are all the Hierophant (well, we're really at some point all of the energies of the tarot), so use that experience and knowledge for the greater good!
This is highlighted and reinforced by the three of pents.
We all need help sometimes, we all need to gather our collective resources to reach a goal.
We can all use the extra support and encouragement!
Sometimes we're afraid to ask, we're afraid to speak up, we're afraid to share, we don't want anyone to see our vulnerability. We feel ashamed for needing help, or asking for it. And why?
Because we live in a time where the extremes are everyone needs all the help or never ask for help, it shows you are weak.
It feels, sometimes, like there isn't a middle ground but don't believe that shit.
We're all in this together, we are all on this planet together to learn from each other, to grow and to share our experiences. No one person is any more special than anyone else, period.
The only reason we think that is because we are TOLD that. But don't believe everything you hear and definitely don't believe everything you think. Be active in what you choose to believe, you might find there are some ideas that need tossing out.
And, that being said! Sometimes we sabotage ourselves, others...sometimes others try to sabotage us...with the idea that they are better than we are. Sometimes we get caught up in the comparison loop, we tell ourselves these damaging lies because someone or something in our lives reinforced it and made us believe it was true. The only truth is what you believe.
The only truth is yours. So, are you going to give your power away freely and let others dictate your reality? Are you going to give your power away so easily and let others tell you what you believe, think, feel, are...or what you can do or have or be? It's time to call your power back.
I know we delegate it to people we deem are more trustworthy than ourselves, or more responsible, or more grown up...whatever the fuck....but it's time to call that power back.
Don't be so quick to give it away, it's YOURS. And, the truth is, you can do with it what you will, but ask yourself this...is this person I'm giving my power to living my life, or am i the one who has to live it? Is this person I'm giving my power to reaping the consequences or the rewards? Is this person experiencing what I'm going through through my life?
No. They aren't. And no matter how loving or well inentioned, it's no ones choice but yours how you live your life, the power is all yours.
What do you want to bring to life? What is your ideal life situation?
Let me just let you in on something, you can (and do) create your own reality. Whatever lens you view the world through is your reality, and it's different for all of us. Just because you see something one way doesn't mean it's the ultimate truth for the whole world. The ultimate truth is this: the universe/god/source/higher power is conspiring WITH us not AGAINST us.
Life doesn't happen TO us, it happens FOR us.
What matters is what you choose to do within the co-creation process. What matters is the lens you view the world from.
So, what do you want to bring into this world? What passion fuels you? What are the things you want to do most?
Let those things come to life.
You have all the back up you need, you have all the support you need and if at any point you need guidance, the Universe/higher power/god is there for you, ready to help guide you on this path. Don't forget to utilize your resources and a higher power is one of them!
It's your time, right now. The world is waiting. What is the gift that you are here to share with the world?
I love you guys! I hope you enjoyed this reading!
