Weekly Forecast 05/20/18 - 05/26/18
Welcome Gemini season! And Uranus moving into Taurus!
There are some interesting vibes going on right now, it seems to be a tug of war between feeling completely inspired and energized and then feeling stuck in a rut with no energy.
Duality seems to be playing a big role right now but sometimes we need to stop and take a break, even when we're raring to go and ready to take action, we need to balance it with rest and self care before we burn out.
It doesn't always need to be all or nothing, is a message that came through today...it's just as ok to take a break as it is to get cracking on the things you need to do. There is a time for each, respectively.
So! Let's get into this week's forecast, shall we?
The beginning of this weeks calls for a little action. The Knight of Wands asks us to step up to the plate and do what we know we need to do to get the ball rolling on what we're passionate about that we keep putting on the back burner. It's easy to let Plan B become Plan A but you need to be clear about what it is you want, only YOU can make your dreams a reality. Only YOU know what you want and what's best for you. Only you can prevent forest fires....lol, but really, we can stand by and point fingers because it's really fucking easy to put blame on other people or things for WHY we aren't doing what we know we want to do.
It's really easy to say we don't have time for things because this other thing is preventing us from making time, we can do this, that or the the other thing because we have a 9 - 5, we can't have a great relationship because our partner isn't putting in the work, we can't afford, we don't have time, blah blah blllaaahhh...what the fuck ever, I get it, I do...but it's time to stop making excuses and time to start owning up to our own shit, take the reins and live the life you WANT to fucking live. Period.
Have you been using your intuition lately or have you been falling into routine and autopilot?
Are you checking in with what you know is good/right for you or are you just complying with the status quo? Your intuition is a gift, we all too often forget that because we tend to, as a society, favor logic. We place higher value on what is tangible, and that's understandable, we want something we can SEE or TOUCH, we want a guarantee of the outcome, we want to know that 1+1=2 and it's going to be that way every single time. We don't really want to look at any unknown or unforeseen variables, we don't want to be displaced. But what if, rather than relying on autopilot, rather than always and forever falling back into logic, into the reality society dictates, why not check in with YOUR reality, YOUR truth, YOUR rules? Why not decide (because you do get to) how you want to live your life? Why not decide what the rules of YOUR life are? Why not let things flow? When we try to force and control everything so that we're never once inconvenienced, we often find ourselves inconvenienced and frustrated. But why? Because we're forcing instead of flowing. If you're in flow, if you're listening to your intuitive guidance and following it, taking the inspired action, holding on loosely, it's a little more difficult to be inconvenienced. You intuition is there to guide you, to help things be easy (because it does get to be easy, but that's another topic all together), how can you work on building up your intuition this week? How can you call on it, listen to it, draw from it this week? You might find flow and alignment are much easier achieved when you're following those intuitive nudges.
I don't feel like it's ANY coincidence that the Knight of Cups should follow the Queen of Cups. So going back to utilizing your intuition more this week, how can you put that into practice? What little things can you do on the daily to really use that intuition? The Queens are the nurturers, they tend to take their time ensuring that what they have worked on so hard stays up to par, and then taking the time to do what they need to do for routine maintenance. The Knights call for action, they want to get things done! Use that Knight of Cups energy to get in touch with how you're feeling, what you need, how to get yourself to that optimal operational point. This isn't about always doing the MOST, this is about steady movement right now, taking the steps forward in the same stride as the backwards steps. Knowing that it's ok to be where you're at. That it's ok to take steps backwards, because perhaps there is something you missed that you need moving forwards. Just because you take a step backwards, doesn't mean you failed...although, I know it can feel that way sometimes, but there really is no such thing as failure, only growth and learning opportunities! It's ok to put logic aside and let your intuition take the wheel for a while, it's ok to trust in your beliefs, it's ok to trust in yourself, it's ok to know that you can't fuck it up, that you can't make a "wrong" choice. It's all an experience, the path won't ever always be linear as much as our human brains feel like it NEEDS to be sometimes...
Sometimes we need to take a break, choose another route, get knocked off the current one in order to become more aware and aligned with who we are and what we want.
The Empress...this beauty is all about pleasure. So, where can you stand to have more pleasure in your life? Where can you do more of what pleases you? Maybe you've been worrying about what is pleasing to others for too long...this is your reminder that your happiness and joy and pleasure matter too. Of course, by serving others we're also serving ourselves, but it's not always about putting everyone else first. Remember, it's really fucking important to fill your own cup as well...after all, you can't be of service to others if you're not taking care of yourself, it doesn't make you selfish...I promise.
Another message the Empress brings to us this week is, stop worrying so much and placing so much value on what other people think of you, or what they're saying about you or might potentially think or say about you. There is no sense in worrying about trying to please everyone, and absolutely no sense in obsessing over what may or may not happen. Live in the here and now because that's all we've really got. The Empress says that it's not only ok, but necessary, that you take care of yourself, that you make sure you're living the life of YOUR choosing, the life of YOUR dreams...rather than living out someone else's expectation or dream or idea of what is "right" or "good" for you.
I love you guys! Have a wonderful week! Remember, take some action, you can't spend all your time planning and never doing.
