It's Soul Check in Time!!
This week, the Cosmos invites Us to Slow Down, Pull Over, Pause, Rest &
Reflect on Who You are and Where You are Going.
~It is an ideal time to Reset Your Spiritual GPS!
We are now approaching the half-way point of the year 2023!!! My goodness, yes, we are living through one of the most accelerated times in history!! Because of this ongoing acceleration, we MUST make a conscious effort to regularly slow down, breathe into the present moment and check in with ourselves. Think of the Star Alignment this week as a "Rest Stop" on your Road Trip of Life.
The Gemini New Moon meets the Planet Neptune at a 90° angle and opposes the Galactic Center at 27° Sagittarius. This creates a BIG dose of Inspirational energy, heightening our sensitivity and intuition. Be sure to allow yourself time this week to slow down, listen and "receive" any Divine Insight (meditate, spend time in nature, creative activities, long distance driving, dreaming, prayers).
Our Minds are Powerful Machines...
Every thought becomes Form...
Our minds can Create as easily as they Sabotage.
This week we have the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Juno all in the sign of Gemini!! A Gemini New Moon reminds us of the Power of our Minds! Our minds have between 60,000 - 80,000 thoughts per day, the majority of them are negative and often repetitive. What feeds your thoughts? What are you reading and listening to? Our brains interpret ALL the information we feed it every day. The news and media are filled with constantly changing and fear based information. The human brain is wired to be attracted to negative information as a survival mechanism. The thing is, our brains react to hearing about or watching a tragic event on the news as though it is happening to us. This neural reaction causes an increase in cortisol levels which is hard on our health; increases anxiety, depression, weight gain, sleep disturbances and auto-immune disease. It is also helpful to be reminded that your brain reacts to worry and overwhelm the same way it would if you were being chased by a bear, stimulating the same stressful neural reaction.
~How much time to do spend in Faith & Trust vs time in Doubt, Self-Doubt & Worry?
~Notice any repetitive thoughts you have? Worry, judgments, criticisms.
~Notice how often you complain to yourself and others.
~ What do you gain from repetitive negative thoughts or complaining? What do you lose?
Gemini teaches us that our Curious Mind feeds our Youthfulness and Joy. What are you "curious" about? Ways to feed curiosity; new experiences, try anything new, travel, meeting new people, talking to strangers, ask questions, take a class, read a journal or listen to podcast on something you are curious about.
“In curiosity is surprise and youth and motion and wonderment. Curiosity is the gateway to everything you know you want and comfort is like a beautiful prison.” SARAH JESSICA PARKER (Gemini Rising)
Cancer Solstice~ June 21st
A few days after the New Moon, our first Solstice of 2023 arrives, as the Sun enters the sign of Cancer! It designates the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and a Winter Solstice for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere! Solstices also mark a time of Endings & New Beginnings. They can bring us separations as well as losses and gains. Most definitely they are a potent time for change. Ironically though, the word “Solstice” comes from the Latin word “solstitium”, meaning “to stand still”. For the few days around the Solstice, the Earth’s axial tilt comes to a gravitational pause. This creates an energetic portal as there is a reduction of energy to the magnetic field on Earth the day before, day of and day after the Solstice (June 19th- 23nd). This pause or stillness is what we need before we shift directions. These few days are an extra potent time for setting intentions, meditation, creativity, intuitive insights, ceremonies and prayer!
Pluto in Aquarius: March 23rd - June 11th~ CHANGE IS BREWING!!
Most of us desire New Beginnings but at the same time resist change. Change is inevitable in the Natural Law of Cycles. New Beginnings are the fun part of change. However, before we can have New Beginnings we must create room and space for them by first experiencing "endings". The Natural Law of Evolution is the cycle of Involution, Death & Rebirth. The ending part, death and letting go is the uncomfortable part.
The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 1778-1798! The Retrograde Cycles will have Pluto alternating between Capricorn and Aquarius until the end of 2024 when it makes a more permanent entrance (20 years) into Aquarius (Nov 2024- Mar 2043). Pluto in Aquarius in April and May gave us a sneak peak as to what this upcoming 20 year transit will feel like.
Pluto is the Planet associated with Change and Evolution~ Aquarius is the sign associated with Progression, Freedom and Inclusiveness. Pluto in Aquarius Accelerates change! This Planetary Cocktail is sure to shake things up, to AWAKEN the world, accelerating change and progression.
How was April & May for you? Any shake ups, endings, breakdowns or breakthroughs? Pluto holds the key to our Deepest Soul's Desires. It also represents our Deepest Fears. What fears have you looked at over the last couple of months? This energy also brings attention to the lungs, nervous system and the mind. It can unlock trauma in the brain, emotional patterns and bring healing attention to mental health.
Know that Pluto is on your side, supporting you in reaching your Dreams. The thing is... Pluto operates like a wrecking ball~ clearing, destroying... anything in your way~ particularly fears. Clearing our fears, clears the lens of our intuitive vision, it gives us Clarity & Confidence.
Trust the Process.
Be Patient with the Unfoldment.
Enjoy the Cosmic Rest Stop this week!
