So many of us are facing challenges at the current time and so many of us are feeling beleaguered and weary of pushing ahead as the storm batters against us and yet, despite the weariness, we carry on.
Little Mercury moved retrograde on the 30th March. This little planet is quite a powerful influence that so many of us often overlook. Mercury gives each of us an opportunity to focus on our thoughts, and in particular to explore how we think. How often do we berate ourselves? And how often do we congratulate ourselves? Hmm, see what I mean?!
Sometimes the strangest things can trigger a memory. Some people find reading a book can trigger a domino-effect of memories, for others, it’s a single word or sentence. Others find it’s a film or a song.
Welcome back. December looks set to be an empowering, transformative and inspirational month! There is a strong theme of going within and accessing the abundance that is so often hidden there. There is also a sense that we are continuing on our path of re-awakening, and an important part of this is self-reflection and self-honesty. Once we ‘own’ all aspects of ourselves, we can set ourselves free. Denial constrains and traps us in repeating patterns and cycles.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve often stopped briefly and contemplated the gravity of the global pandemic we’re all currently facing, I find myself feeling dazed and confused on a daily basis at the bewildering speed of how things have moved and at how much everyday life has changed.
As we continue to ride the waves of shift and change, it can become all too easy to forget to tend the garden within. Life can become so frantic, that we don’t find the time to do a little weeding or to plant some new seeds to cultivate. Such inner ‘housework’ can feel secondary to the demands of daily life, and yet it is this inner work that shapes and defines what happens next!
Neptune enters Pisces today (4th April), for the first time in almost 150 years, Neptune comes to the sign where he feels most at home. This is but a brief visit (he moves back into Aquarius into August whilst retrograde), but Neptune will be back home again from 2012. Albeit brief, this visit by Neptune stirs up a huge well of compassion and emotion within, his watery fluidity combined with the fluidity of Pisces allows for a greater awareness to develop of the interconnectivity that weaves us all together.
