Hope you made it through last week with no major problems. There was a lot going on in the cosmos and all of it is going to help us evolve and become the enlightened beings we are meant to become.
For me, the week was full of new experiences and realizations. I learned that I can let go and not be attached to things. I learned some things simply are not as important as we think they are. Things might be important to some folks but I am choosing a more simple path.
The past week, the energy has been intense. If you read last week’s post you know some of what I am speaking of. If you are on the path of awakening, you have been feeling the energy in some way. The eclipse energy is bringing in a new wave of energy and bringing things to the surface to be transmuted into light. This applies not only to the individual but also the collective.
There is more too. Over this weekend we are feeling the effects of a geomagnetic storm that took place last Friday. This energy can cause us to feel quite tired, cause breathing issues, sleeplessness, increased paranormal events, and greater intuition. Some people could notice some vertigo, ringing ears, and differences in appetite. A few folks might notice some time lapses or timeline shifts but this is far less common than the other effects.
Some of us will no doubt have experiences that lead us to a fearful place. If you give into the fear, your future such experiences could be limited and thus, limit your personal evolution. Avoiding fear mode is difficult for humans in general. Contrived or not, when our world is so full of fearful info, there is little wonder that people have a hard time living without fear.
During these times, it is important to drink more water. I don’t think folks drink enough in general anyway and just had a conversation with a friend in Delaware about this yesterday.
For those with sleeping issues, having a glass of milk or source of calcium and potassium an hour before bed is a good idea. I make sure I get at least 300mg of magnesium a day and try to take more like 1 gram or 1,000mg a day or more. I will say that this amount is something one must work up to. Otherwise, you will want to be sure you are close to a bathroom all day. Breaking down 1,000 mg over 3 daily doses works well, however, and I sleep well at night.
My last suggestion to alleviate energy symptoms and improve sleep is to soak in a hot bath of Epsom salts and sea salt. This not only helps detoxify the body but also relaxes it. Feel free to add vinegar to balance the skin’s pH or essential oils to add fragrance and enhance relaxation.
Last week I shared a link that explained some of the effects of the energy shift that began about August 1, 2016. If you did not read is, please consult last week’s post for the link.
This Mercury retrograde period has a different energy to it than most of them. This time, there is an aspect that is helping us to move ahead. This does not mean that we should not use caution with our communications or travels, it just means there is an aspect that is beneficial.
Mercury is in Virgo. Virgo is known for health and healing but did you know that Mercury can be healing also? This could be a powerful combination for some of you.
This is retrograde is also a good for being of service and philanthropy. A few could see good fortune in the stock market while overall, the market is on edge.
This retrograde is in close proximity to Jupiter and Venus. This could mean good luck in the love department for some of us. It all depends on your natal chart and how your planets are triggered here. But with Jupiter, the great benefic and Venus, the planet of love so close by, sparks are going to fly for some folks.
Now speaking of Venus and Jupiter…..Venus has already transitioned to balancing Libra. Jupiter follows her this week, when on Friday he enters Libra. This transit might lend a hand to some of our current collective issues that deal with being fair and accepting of differences. Jupiter will transit Libra over the next year or so. If you were born under Libra or have a Libra Moon or ascendant, you will perhaps be most affected by this transit.
Other aspects this week include a productive trine between the Sun and Pluto. This could provide us with some good energy to positively negotiate details of a plan or a relationship. This energy might assist us in learning the truth behind some things we might have wondered about. This could also increase our ability to focus and concentrate on whatever it is that we might need to do. In spite of Mercury retrograde, this is actually good energy to begin a project or small business.
Saturday there is an opposition between Mercury and Chiron. This aspect can cause misunderstanding and miscommunications. I would say that this will most likely be accentuated by the retrograde energy too. Do your best not to give into the fear and take things personally. Reading the intention of others will be difficult.
Saturday also brings us a square aspect between Saturn and Neptune. Disillusionment is perhaps the most likely thing most of us will notice. Some of us could wonder if we really have what it takes to make our dreams come true. Will we actually be able to follow through with our thoughts and ideas? Or will we avoid things altogether?
Perhaps the best outcome of this aspect is a reevaluation of our worldly goals and our more spiritual desires for our life. There could be some blocks when it comes to financial plans. And a few will feel completely uninspired. Some will be forced to face addictions, over spending, or lifestyle and behavior choices that hold us back.
It will be important for all of us whether we are on a spiritual path or not, to accept that sacrifices must be made. It will become more and more important to give up addictions and tighten the purse strings, not just now but as time goes on.
And don’t forget that hot bath. Detoxing is a good thing.
As I said in the beginning, drink lots of water. You should be doing this anyway but you might need it more next weekend. Don’t forget to eat cleanly too. This means fresh, unprocessed foods. Reduce or eliminate caffeine and alcohol. Take in some sunshine each day and laugh as much as possible.
I wish each of you a great week ahead.
