GRAND WATER TRINE & COUNSEL FOR THE UPCOMING ECLIPSE

snail-822610_1920.jpg

There is a very powerful, beautiful energy signature emerging at this time. It´s been presenting itself to me in many ways as we head towards the Solar Eclipse / Cancer New Moon opposed Pluto in Capricorn on July 12-13.

Astrologically, it corresponds to the Sun (15 Cancer) trining Jupiter (13 Scorpio) and Neptune (16 Pisces) – creating a Grand Water Trine. And a whole bunch of other stuff – but I´m sticking to the basics in this article.

This energy pattern is bringing out some deep emotions, ancestral and familial connections and karmic inheritances.

(Putting it mildly).

For some of you, this is going to be a tsunami that wreaks havoc through the way you would like to see yourselves and your relationship with Family and Spirit. You´ll have a lot of mud and debris to sort through afterwards. And that itself will get you digging deeper.

For others, the process will be far more gentle as you allow yourself to lift away aspects of your past inheritance, emotional framework and familial or other energetic contracts.

Either way, it is going to be the necessary bridge in lifting and creating connections to different parts of your being. Especially the bits you haven´t had much time or inclination to access in a long, long, time.

My general counsel at this time would be to sit with yourselves, maintain and nurture your home-space and go back to what makes you – you. That is a process that goes far beyond this life-time as you have experienced it. Back to the very beginning.

And if that sounds too daunting, just make the time to sit in a space that nurtures you and rejuvenates you. That makes you remember the essence of what you are.

Now that could be sitting in sacred space – or where possible – spending time with family. Or just spending a whole lot of time by the ocean. Or making yourself a nice bowl of soup and cuddling your teddy. It depends on where you are and what you can manage.

Observe what others and the external world is doing, but is not the time to jump into the fray, engage or try to ´fix´ other people, situations or things. It is a more fruitful to pay attention and wait for the right time. (September onwards, generally speaking)

The answers you seek right now are not going to be outside of you. They never have been.

Current astrological alignments support your process of growth through self-discovery.

Given that we are in the Buildup to the Eclipse, Jupiter stationing direct, Mercury going retrograde – this is not the time to take unnecessary risks. Go inwards.

The same applies to public figures and facilitators. Take the time to nurture yourself and allow yourself the space to just be you.

Pluto´s opposition to the Eclipse is going to be bringing up enough drama-karma for us to collectively look at. Along with possible changes in finances, health, intimate arrangements or crisis situations that try to draw you out. It´s a provocative energy to say the least.

Sometimes the ´hook´ comes in the form of someone who appears to want to be saved (making you the great hero) – and sometimes it comes in the form of someone you may see as your oppressor (making you the victim). It just goes back to the drama triangle and the ways the victim-abuser-rescuer archetypes intersect with one another.

This is exactly why I have been guided not to take sessions at this time. It is more rewarding for all of us – especially now – to seek answers at the Source that resides in us all.

It really sucks to be a projection screen for others when what they want is an emotional dumping ground, rather than guidance to help themselves find greater sovereignty within and without. The clean-up process takes it´s own time and energy, especially when you have to clear that person´s attachments afterwards.

Facilitators – remember that your work goes beyond being an emotional waste receptacle. And that you need to keep your boundaries strong and energy clean to help as many as possible.

You´re here to transform people, not to take on a side-gig as punching bag. Very different from what holding space is about.

Be discerning as to whether someone truly wants your help, is willing to engage and reciprocate your work with respect – or whether they just want to lash out. (Remember – Pluto does not respect boundaries).

The Age of Pisces is done my friends. You can bring greater harmony and transformation to others without sacrificing your own well-being.

If someone does seriously need help and you need time for yourself, be gentle and if possible direct them to someone who can help. If you´re on the other side of the equation, make sure you reach out to people who are able and willing to support you at this time.

Make no expectations either way as no one knows what another has been through.

That being said, be as nurturing as you can to self and others. But keep your eye out for karmic hooks at play.

Sometimes people are really just looking for help, and sometimes it´s a wolf in sheep´s clothing.

And sometimes the bogeyman under your bed is really a pile of clothes you forgot about.

Navigate compassionately and fearlessly. And keep your eyes and hearts open.

Moon conjuncts Mars and the South Node in Aquarius: Lessons in Preparation for the Lunar Eclipse (27 July 2018)

landscape-1799006_960_720

The Moon conjuncts Mars in Aquarius and the South Node right now. This is an important precursor to July 27th´s Lunar Eclipse that will see the Moon conjuncting Mars and the South Node yet again – whilst opposing the Sun.

Whatever is presenting itself to you is an indicator of what you may be facing during the Eclipse itself. So it´s a good time to start preparing and covering your bases.

This is an excellent time to work with meditative techniques, tools and perspectives that help us release attachments. Be it to people, ideas, cellular memories and/or energetic contracts.

If emotions are getting out of hand (often as the precursor to change), work with something calming like lepidolite. Working with a gemstone can mean meditating with it or simply wearing it (for starters).

You may also want to listen to Solfeggio Frequencies (available online) as these pieces of audio/meditative music allow you to process and release what is needed at a sub-conscious level.

Here are two websites to start your explorations with:

http://solawakening.com/solfeggio-frequencies-2/
http://www.meditativemind.org/benefits-of-music-based-on-7…/

Having a bath or foot soak with sea salt and/or frankincense essential oil would be of immense benefit now. Or burn the resin whilst you´re in the bath and allow yourselves to be bathed in the smell.

Allow yourselves to release whatever needs letting go of.

Visualize yourselves being surrounded and filled by the golden light to fill the spaces that have now been unburdened.

And let the healing continue.

You can repeat this regularly in the buildup to the Eclipse – it´s good general practice in any case.

Blessings and Love

48-hour heads up! Pluto conjunct Cappy Moon, Mercury shifts into Leo

Capricorn Full Moon conjunct Saturn went exact a few hours ago. But we´re not out of the woods yet.
 
Over the next 24 hours, we´ll be seeing the build-up to the Moon-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. And a further day for the wind-down.
 
In this time, Mercury will be leaving Cancer and entering Leo.
 
Put it all together and you get a recipe for emotional, psychic and/or physical outbursts.
 
All of that pent-up Cappy energy looking for an outlet can get explosive….
 
Now this is phenomenal to work with if you have a goal or ambition or direction you want to head towards.
 
And enough emotional anchoring for you to deal with the denser emotions that come up. (Which will come up as Mercury asks you to finish thinking through issues surrounding family, home, mothers, anchoring, belonging, tradition, etc.)
 
What you can do is to be very mindful when you deal with other people, especially those you have financial, sexual, emotional or psychological intimacy / closeness with.
 
Especially family. And issues surrounding the home-space / ancestral property or other shared or inherited spaces and energies.
 
A lot of projection drama is possible, as is a lashing-out of energy that remains hidden or unresolved.
 
And now you know that´s coming – you have a better chance of navigating the flow as it comes. And to manifest a more positive, transformative experience.
 
If doing any energetic / facilitative work with others, be mindful of the intensity of the aspects you´re doing it under.
 
Otherwise ….
 
Can you spell   b l a n k e t    f o r t    ?

Moon conjuncts Vesta Retrograde and The Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius), Grand Goddess Fire Trine & Buildup to the Capricorn Full Moon!

woman-archer

Use this time for inner alignment as we head towards the Capricorn Full Moon (with Saturn opposing the Sun!).

Be mindful of the different archetypes of the Feminine and how they connect with our Spiritual Paths of Service (or simply Being).

** VESTA & MOON ON GALACTIC CENTER

Vesta speaks to us about devotion (or dissolution of devotion) towards causes or energies larger than ourselves. It reflects the Archetype of the Priestess or Spiritual Facilitator.

Vesta on the Galactic Center is asking you to be more discerning surrounding the types of Service you may seek to identify yourselves with at this time – and the Paths or roads you take to get there.

Remember that Vesta goes back over the Galactic Center in September 2018. You may want to wait before declaring commitments to philosophies, paths, travel or immigration plans, institutions and so on for a while.

Vesta was last on the Galactic Center in March 2018 and so you may find some echoes or continuations from what happened back then. You may also be inspired to choose your path of Service on the basis of when Saturn went over the Galactic Center (for much of 2017).

With the Moon on Vesta in Retrograde, we are challenged to see if we can – as good Archers – draw the bowstring backwards and hold steady as we locate our goals. And not let the arrow fly till the circumstances are just right.

In other words:

Let your emotions guide you, but don´t get caught up in them just yet.

You are not your emotions.

Or your mother´s emotions.

Or your society´s emotions.

You are you.

And this is one way you receive and process the experience of being alive here-and-now during such intense times.

Just let whatever comes flow through and – as you best you can – sit in non-judgement. The more your observe, the more ready you will be to act on these matters at a more fruitful time.

On top of that Mars has just stationed retrograde in Aquarius (until late August 2018) and is challenging us to manage erratic impulses and the desire to skip steps in search of ideals, friendships and soul-tribes.

You´re going to want to let loose and fly for a grand, idealized vision of things, prompted by your emotional responses but hold on if you can. There´s more!

** GREAT GODDESS FIRE TRINE

The way we embody, express and understand different aspects of the Goddess Asteroids (Ceres, Juno, Vesta) are being activated at this time in a Grand Fire Trine. This is reminiscent of The Great Goddess Fire Trine of 2015.

Whilst Divine Feminine energy is capable of nurture, love, compassionate / detached destruction, transformation, revolution – it is we humans who are able to muddy the waters with our intentions, projections, baggage and desires.

Sometimes the ego gets us to see what it wants when we act out of a lust of power, or sometimes out of sheer desperation in search of connection and security.

Stay discerning. Look at the intention, not just the external paraphernalia of whatever presents itself to you at this time.

Ceres (29 Leo) trines Vesta, The Moon and The Galactic Center – challenging us to receive and give nurture to the child-like, authentic, playful, passionate and (sometimes) grandiose aspect of ourselves. We may be playing out emotional dramas with family members (especially the primary nurturer), lovers, children, teachers and different aspects of the Self at this time.

Uranus (1 Taurus) and Juno (28 Aries) trine Ceres, Vesta, The Moon and The Galactic Center. They ask us to consider how we allow the soul´s flowering the unfold through the expression of Self – and how the essential Self is inspired (or provoked) through soul-mates. (Who are neither always romantic or sexual – it could be your best friend, or child).

Uranus charges this Goddess Fire Trine by reminding us to stay grounded, humble, pragmatic and keeping one´s eye on longer cycles of change. Manage your material needs and when in doubt, stay aligned with your body´s cycles and intuition.

** BUILDUP TO SUN-SATURN OPPOSITION, CAPRICORN FULL MOON

All of this energy comes up just before Sun opposes Saturn (5 Capricorn) in 2 hours from now and the Capricorn Full Moon. The Moon (6 Capricorn) will conjunct Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) as it too opposes the Sun.

So keep that bowstring drawn backwards and wait for the right time to let loose.

Whilst some queries need a longer time before you can act upon then, other issues can require a more immediate response, e.g.: family, career, relationship with Grandmothers / Grandfathers / Mothers / Fathers / Authority Figures, banks, political institutions, material success / standing, property management, emotional securities, real estate/home matters.

You´ll be seeing this focus for another three days (June 27-June 30).

Look back to the Capricorn New Moon (January 16) to see what may be unfolding for you at this time. This is the first Sun-Saturn opposition in Capricorn in this current Saturn transit of its home sign. The way you set the tone here will lay the floorplan of future negotiations with Saturn over the next few years.

Consider your material reality and ultimately what you want to manifest in it as part of your greater legacy.

What reality do you choose to align with, and what will you build for your descendants to inhabit?

It´s not about power, scale or intensity – it´s about doing what counts (and why).

Blessings,

Announcement : Changes in Sessions + The 5-hour Soul Portrait Masterclass

Supernova

Blessings to All.

I have had to have a long, hard look at the intensity of the work that I do when working on one-on-one and the time required for recovery after each – along with taxation requirements.

Prices have been increased to reflect the time I need to honor myself and taxation requirements.  This takes effect immediately as I am currently doing a round of sessions .

Here is a table that reflects present time-slots and their prices.

15 minutes:  55 USD

30 minutes: 99 USD

45 minutes: 144 USD

60 minutes: 188 USD

90 minutes: 288 USD

300 minutes: 1133 USD ( SOUL PORTRAIT MASTERCLASS )

Synastry charts (with the consent/participation of all parties) and kids´ astrological readings are best served in the 90 minute slot.

Those exploring their charts for the first time may want to stick with the 60 minute session.

Please also note that each session and associated price covers both the astrological analysis and energy-work done during the session-time itself.

I have also decided to re-introduce the Soul Portrait Masterclass as a 5-hour facilitation.

The cost of the Masterclass is 1133 USD. It will be a combination of spoken astrology and energetic facilitation. The client will also be asked to sit in meditation in between different segments of the process.

This session is not for everyone – as they may be at different levels of development or simply have different needs. I will need to make an in-depth assessment before offering this session to someone as it takes an enormous amount of energy to work with. And the session continues to yield fruit for years afterwards.

I am having a round of sessions between now and June 29/30. You can book 15-45-60-90 minute slots directly using my new booking platform.

https://theskypriestess.as.me/schedule.php

If you are new to my work – you must read and understand this document before booking

Why What I Do Isn’t For Everyone. Read and Understand This Before Booking A Session with Me.

All potential clients must read, understand and accept the T&Cs of the session as stated in the invoice – and – the disclaimer which explains my modality along with who would be best benefit from my readings. This work is not suitable as a substitute for psychological counseling or therapy and it makes no claims to provide miracle cures to spiritual ailments. This is more for those seeking insight for themselves on the long road of self-understanding.

Sessions are conducted via Skype. A phonecall is possible but may incur a charge. The session can be recorded.

All Sessions and Recordings are subject to the T&Cs which are presented during the booking process. If you purchase / have a session, you automatically indicate your consent to the T&Cs as stated.

Astrological Overview till November 2018

 

2018 is an incredible year for (r)evolution. We are called to transform the way we think about ourselves, consciousness and the power of the collective.

At the same time, we are asked to work with aptly placed windows of Retrograde energy. (There are multiple this year)

We are asked to be patient, persevere in the face of intensity and to continue aligning ourselves with Guidance that leads to a more positive experience of reality.

July is an incredible month of change, transformation and intensity. Use this energy well to choose the destiny which you wish to manifest, the reality you (and your descendants) will inhabit.

Be wise in your choice of guides, friends and collective networks and ensure your thinking is truly aligned with the Universal blueprint. Be wary of groupthink and remember to align your Mind with your Heart.

November sees a lot of energy moving forwards with the shifting of the Nodes and Jupiter´s entry into Sagittarius. What will we see manifesting between the end of 2018 till mid 2020 will create a ripple effect that will last decades. So it is vital for us to prepare, align and stay focused – even when multiple distractions tell you otherwise.

Remember that what happens at the micro scale is a reflection of the macro and vice versa.

All things are connected.

Do what you can and keep your eye on the ball.

Blessings,

WHEN LESS IS MORE: SUN OPPOSES THE GALACTIC CENTER AND IXION (THE TYRANT)

monarch-butterfly-on-flower-1402855094pwZ
 
Blessings to All. At present, the Sun is at 27 Gemini, making its annual opposition to the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius). This year, Ixion (The Tyrant) conjuncts the Galactic Center, making this energy more challenging to navigate.
 
The Galactic Center is essentially the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
 
In my study of the Galactic Center, I have found it to be an astrological influence that aligns a person with intensely powerful energies – both positive and negative.
 
I´d encourage you to read Philip Sedwick´s superb article on the Galactic Center for further information – I consider this a classic text on the subject.
 
 
Whenever, the Galactic Center is activated in a chart, or by transit – We are encouraged to commune deeply with our Guides and to align our paths and work with the highest, deepest good for Self and All-That-Is.
 
But it can equally be used to abuse others. Especially with Ixion where it is right now. Here´s Brittanica.com´s definition:
 
“Ixion, in Greek legend, son either of the god Ares or of Phlegyas, king of the Lapiths in Thessaly. He murdered his father-in-law and could find no one to purify him until Zeus did so and admitted him as a guest to Olympus. Ixion abused his pardon by trying to seduce Zeus’s wife, Hera. Zeus substituted for her a cloud, by which Ixion became the father of Centaurus, who fathered the Centaurs by the mares of Mount Pelion. Zeus, to punish him, bound him on a fiery wheel, which rolled unceasingly through the air or, according to the more common tradition, in the underworld.”
 
Ixion´s energy is essentially the patriarchal, tyrannical Masculine out of control. It does not know remorse and sees compassion and forgiveness as a weakness. His descendants (the Centaurs) are essentially known for perpetuating these kinds of violence, especially against women – Chiron being a key exception.
 
So when you put it all together, this year´s Sun-Galactic Center/Ixion opposition asks us to navigate our choices in response to the toxic masculine.
 
Sometimes people go too far with this, and sometimes people do too little. Because it´s hard to find that balance.
 
Sometimes they get baited into mud-slinging matches that basically become excuses to energetically projectile vomit on someone with an opposite view.
 
Sometimes they plug out and close their ears because it´s all too much. Which is perfectly understandable.
 
Rather than going in heavy and hard to break through an archetype that has lasted for millenia, or to ignore the need for it entirely – strive to find a middle point of Balance.
 
Don´t let people hook you into trying to rescue others when it may simply be beyond your scope.
 
Remember that Sagittarius´ energy is going to want to elicit the image of the Knight of Wands, riding in on a moral pedestal and realizing that the battle is too big to be won alone. What happens there is a loss of energy and energetic bruising that can be avoided.
 
So what do you do?
 
Look at the lessons of the Sun-in-Gemini. Be as a butterfly.
 
Collect information from multiple perspectives.
 
Be informed with the facts (and fact-check)
 
Be pragmatic: Invest your energy in daily acts which (over time, and with lots of people) lead to far-reaching changes.
 
Get organized. Use the power of your voice and reason to network with others who want to create change.
 
It´s not something to go at solo. But also remember that sharing moral outrage with those who agree with you (i.e preaching to the choir) is not going to create change by itself. It´s the catalyst.
 
What I also found is that – especially now – it is more important than ever to take the time to tune in with your Guides.
 
Release yourself from energetic contracts that are no longer in alignment.
 
Resist the temptation to need to define and charge towards anything.
 
Know that you will be guided to act when the time and circumstances for action are all in alignment.
 
Don´t let the actions of others distract you from the process of learning what it is that you need to do – right here, right now.
 
And doing it.
 
Blessings,

Preparation for the Gemini New Moon (June 13-14, 2018)

Pinus_ponderosa_cone,_Summerland,_British_Columbia

 

For the next 12 hours, The Sun, Moon and Mercury will all be in Gemini. Mercury will then shift into Cancer.

This is an excellent time to say what you need to say and get ´it´ off your chest.

Express yourselves, but do not use it as an excuse to abuse others.

Think about the ways in which you can develop your communicative / reasoning / expressive faculties.

This is a good time to read a book, do a little writing/drawing with the non-dominant hand, or to communicate with loved ones. It is especially potent for sibling relationships.

If there´s a lot of denser emotions at play and if you feel that communication may not be possible, write a letter to them (which you then keep or burn), or write in your journal.

This is an extraordinarily powerful time for words. You can enmesh – or – liberate yourself from outmoded constructs and ways of life through the power of speech and intention. Stay aligned on your path without seeking to control or influence others – and you should be good.

Remember that we have the Gemini New Moon coming up within 1.5 days´ time. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, provides his parting messages for you at this time.

We also see Venus moving into Leo shortly after the New Moon goes exact. This is a wonderful to time to think about our value systems and how they hold the constructs of family, tradition, motherhood and emotion. Release that which no longer resonates.

That will then open you up to more aligned forms of love, and ones which truly express your spirit. In other words, clear the baggage within so that Venus in Leo has the room to come out and play.

But it´s not just about letting go of dense belief systems and ideas, sometimes it´s about changing parts of ourselves that have – at some point – given us a lot of joy. It´s woven into the nature of change itself.

Our ego adds weight to itself by getting us to hold onto ideas well past their sell-by-date. If you´re feeling resistant to let go, question whether (1) letting go is what your part requires of you at this time and (2) is your ego in the driver´s seat?

Ego-based identifications are not always the negative, denser kind. Sometimes they can be a cherished ideal that we´ve built our identities around.

But in times of immense collective change, sometimes our growth requires us to give up what we´ve become so fond of. And that´s where it´s a challenge.

Trust that you will do things in the timing that is most aligned with your growth – and trust that you will not hide behind that principle in stalling your own process 

Refer back to yesterday´s piece on Mars conjunct the South Node (1st time out of 3 in 2018) and how it builds up to the game-changing Lunar Eclipse in July.

We live in very interesting times and what you do counts.

So set those intentions wisely with this New Moon. Be open to change and be willing to do what is needed to make it happen.

Blessings,

MARS CONJUNCT SOUTH NODE (ROUND 1 OF 3) + JULY´S LUNAR ECLIPSE

 

This is a brief video on the ongoing Mars-South Node conjunction in Aquarius. There is a lot of energetic baggage that is ready to be lifted at this time – from a very long time ago.

Your key to moving through this energy is to allow for new possibilities. This is less about your emotions (though they are brought to the surface now by Jupiter trined Neptune in the water signs of Scorpio and Pisces) – and more about your mental constructs.

Allow yourself to rediscover the true meaning of free will and the power of conscious choice. Many, if not the vast majority, of us still act on outdated forms of programming and scripts that are simply no longer needed.

This alignment is an incredible catalyst – and one that can, will and is supporting the processes of spiritual transformation across this planet. It also comes at a time where Kilauea continues to erupt on the Big Island in Hawaii.

Whether we know it or not, or want it or not …. we live in incredible times. And the (r)evolution of consciousness continues.

At the practical level, pay attention to the vibration of what you put out in the world (especially through social media), the kind of friends you attract or those who position themselves as members of your tribe. You will rediscover some gems, and realize that some others may no longer be aligned with the path you are on. Sometimes your idea of the path itself may need changing.

So what do you do?

Be Bold. Be Fearless. Choose to Believe that another Future is indeed possible.
No matter how strongly entrenched the 3-D constructs of the past appear to be.

To quote The Matrix … remember … ´there is no spoon´.

We will be seeing the Mars- South Node conjunction in Aquarius – TWO MORE TIMES – on account of Mars´ retrograde. Here are the time-frames for each time this conjunction will happen in 2018. I am including both calculations of the Nodes (Mean/True) – both of which operate at different levels of reality.

June 7-June 13, 2018 (South Node between 6-8 Aquarius)

July 18-July 20, 2018 (South Node between 5-6 Aquarius)

September 23-25, 2018 (South Node between 2-4 Aquarius)

Ideally, you would pad these dates out – depending on your own psychic sensitivity and other factors in your chart.

So really: this is just round 1 of 3.

It is also interesting to note that Mars is now brighter than any star in the sky (including Sirius.). The announcement was made on June 8th on spaceweather.com.

In late July, Mars will go on to outshine Jupiter as it makes its perihelic opposition with the Sun. Mars will be at one of its closest points to the Sun, with the earth in between. It was a little closer to the Sun in 2003 – but it´s still a pretty powerful event.

What´s even more fascinating is that the date of the Mars´ perihelic opposition is July 27, 2018 – – – which of course coincides with a Total Lunar Eclipse on the same date.

In other words … what´s happening now in your lives, and in the skies is setting you up for … immense change. How you navigate now will set the tone for what you experience during this eclipse.

Sun opposes the Moon (4´44 Leo-Aquarius)
Sun conjuncts the North Node
Moon conjuncts the South Node and Mars
Everything squares Uranus in Taurus.

Mother.Of.God.

That´s potent.

This Eclipse will be a game-changer. Anything is possible.

And even more so if you have ANYTHING near 2-6 degrees Scorpio. That would create a Grand Lunar Nodal Cross 😀 Whew!

Listen to the video for more details on just what Mars asks us to consider – and what we stand to gain through its transformation.

Time to rethink the way we move through reality.
And what it´s all for.
And who we move through it with.

Sun, Mars and The Super-Galactic Center in a Grand Air Trine (22-25 May 2018)

Typhoon_amber_concentric_eyewalls

Sun at 1 Gemini trines Mars at 2 Aquarius and The Super-Galactic Center at 1 Libra. (22-25 May 2018)

This Grand Air trine – which will be even more potent tomorrow gets us to look at the narratives through which we have constructed our identities, our relationships, our ideologies- and the concepts which make up our navigational compass in life.

This is a good time to revisit the stories which your lives are woven into, and those which you have (for better or worse) super-imposed onto your experiences.

Relationships and the way in which we understand the agency of the Masculine will be especially under scrutiny at this time.

Whilst this can be a very liberating energy to work with, it can be profoundly uncomfortable for some as it overturns truths and frameworks so deeply cherished.

Those who are especially vulnerable to panic and anxiety attacks, mental loops, getting stuck in one´s head, etc. are advised to practice extra self-care. Distract yourselves in a healthy way should the processing of this mental energy be more than you can handle.

Or go to a qualified professional or support group who can help. Be mindful of not taking on another´s intellectual baggage in lieu of your own.

 

Blessings,

 

Postscript – I shared some of my recent health concerns on Facebook, as it´s been a tough burden to bear. An interesting comment appeared in the comments. This was my response and it ties in well with the Mars-in-Aquarius energy. My thanks to the soul who facilitated the response.

It is unwise to project upon those whose task it is to challenge certain things in the world – irrespective of the goodness of our intentions.
 
Some of us do things of this nature not because we are victims or defensive. It is simply part and parcel of the contracts that we chose to undertake for a much larger purpose.
 
And it´s a challenging role to play. But the key issue is to remember that it is a valid role, or modality to engage the Universe with.
 
Unfortunately, new age dogma preaches that if you are hurt or wounded that you have somehow invited it, or your inner victim feels the need to get beaten about till it realizes it no longer needs to be a victim.
 
Many warriors do not speak up about their scars or their battles to avoid this kind of projection. And that adds to the perception that they are angry, defensive, overly protective, and so on.
 
Basically it´s a bad cycle of mutually-reinforced misperceptions.
 
People will simply not know the reason why challenger/warrior types have chosen to take the hits that they have. Because truly: the nature of the Universe and one´s role in it goes so much farther beyond the victim/abuser dichotomy.
 
Now of course there are those who don the mantle of the Challenger but are really acting out a wounded psychodrama. That is entirely possible.
 
But it takes a hell of a lot of study, understanding and knowledge of that person and the karmic contracts they have chosen to participate in (with whom, and why), before a person can make a true assessment.
 
Well-intentioned individuals offering perspective on a situation or person can do so much of damage by trying to fit others in that binary ´victim-abuser´ formulation.
 
In short, there are many reasons we do what we do. Tarring all of it with the same brush doesn´t really do it justice.
