This energy may compel you to express yourself on one or many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to).
This is the beginning of a new cycle of personal self-expression. You may feel the urge to express yourself in new ways, and on many different levels. Communication may also be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated, meaning two-way and not just one-sided.
Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall are all active periods, often with a lot of movement, change & choices to be made. The Gates of Power mark the MidPoint between these Initiations and MidPoints are always potent, creative times that allow you to prune the non-essential, while anchoring what is real or alive.
The human part of us tends to 'think' rather than 'feel' and thus creates the illusion - that we are NOT connected to every other living organism in the Universe. The Neptune part of us KNOWS we ARE! When you get back far enough, you can see just how inter-connected we are - Mother Earth and all Her creations!
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights...
Life is all about choices. And if your parents were busy, like most parents are, with survival and keeping a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food in your belly, sitting you down once in a while to point out your choices and their consequences probably wasn't a priority. That's okay - you chose your parents for the lessons they would facilitate. You got what you got and you didn't get what you didn't get. The choice now is how can you use what you did get in the most effective way?
This month we are feeling the pressure to produce results - either from ourselves or outer circumstances (or both). Either way, you have to be extremely mindful of how you spend your energy at this time. Strategic thinking takes practice but you must make the effort to expand your mind to access additional options you may not have realized you had ... and then TRY THEM! (What do you have to lose?) Mother Earth provides EVERYTHING we could possibly need to live this life. It is all within each and every one of us.
Independent means "free from the control of others; self-reliant". To me, it means OWN YOUR STUFF - KEEP IT REAL! Everything about you - the good, the bad and the ugly - is because of you and your choices. We make choices based on the knowledge and experience we have at the time, but the choices are our own nonetheless.
This energy provokes the need to delve deeper into the ideas or information being presented at this time, whether personal or professional. You will want to dig deeper, ask the hard questions and gather insights that are deeper and more profound than usual.
