How are you? My head is spinning. The crazy just never seems to stop, and I am hanging onto the roller coaster for dear life, hoping not to fly off into oblivion. Everything seems to be chaotic, friends and family struggling, people going through massive change or meltdowns, road rage seems to escalate every month. But I am trying to remain calm by reminding myself that these ARE crazy times, the chaos will give birth to the new, so for now we have to keep on keeping on.
The reason is that the "other side" is so powerful right now. We are growing more and more dissatisfied with this world. We see the flaws, the futility, the stupidity and we're just sick and tired of it all. We must make changes to ourselves AND the world. We must give our spiritual life more importance and live as examples to others of how to incorporate our divine connection to our worldly days. And when we do that we can't help but see the wrong doing, the selfishness and the greed. It's almost nauseating. And this intolerance is what WILL change things. Neptune is helping us by fine tuning our senses so that we feel there is more to life than this.
And Mercury, about to go retrograde on the 18th in its home, Gemini, is squaring Neptune making our thinking muddled as the spiritual pushes into our lives painfully like a woman giving birth. Our mind must learn to adapt to what is not necessarily logic, what can't be explained in usual terms, but adapt a knowing of something more, something here with us, something whispering to us, and opening the light up in our eyes so we see things as they really are, not as they appear to be. These too enhance our psychic senses..hunches, premonitions, feelings....of something more, even a vision of more. Actual psychic practitioners will see their skills enhanced, and perhaps an overflowing of people contacting them with trivial crap thinking its so very important when its not.
It's time to set our priorities straight. What is important and what is crap you crave in your life that leaves you unhappy and wanting? Focus on real not on media images of real. Nothing could be further from reality than the media. They are there to SELL you stuff...products, ideas and lifestyles. I know people who "have it all" and they are miserable, because the media hoax is never going to bring you happiness. Be thankful, even for a parking place, and focus as much on the good as you can in this crazy world with so much pressure. Be thankful for that warm bed you crawl into at night, be thankful for your health, be thankful for your friends and pets, be thankful for every little thing in your life.
I've been having vivid dreams lately, of gifts coming from out of no where, surprising big changes out of the blue, and I do feel like I am on the verge of something - but timing is blurred and Neptune likes it that way. I have faith it's coming, I believe. It's all I can do. Let go and let God, while continuing to try.
Jupiter, the planet that rules spirituality, and gives us hope, is rubbing against Pluto, the ruler of the underworld who tends to see the darkness while Jupiter encourages us to see the Light. Believe that spiritual matters are taking over, and will create balance between yin-yang, positive-negative. Balance is coming for sure, but it will be a bumpy ride on the way there. Grow your faith. It will make the rise so much easier. Are you talking to your Angels, God, Guardians, Guides, Higher Self? Well do it, make it a habit. Just keep dialoguing and the connection grows and you are "help" from unseen forces that will get you through.
Saturn is also squaring Mars now. Venus just went into Cancer, a place where love matters at a core family level, and making security in love very important while it's making another adjustment to Saturn's placement, giving us few answers. Mars is in Gemini where lots of energy is available for action....but Saturn is saying slow down, not yet. And the Sun is in Taurus, where you lose that marvelous Aries energy and almost feel like just laying in bed all the time its such a change in dynamics. We're in a boxing match and we can't see or feel the punches, but they are coming at us, invisible sources of change pushing and pulling us, leaving us spent, tired, depressed, angry and mostly frustrated. Not much seems to be moving forward, set backs are common, and we have to keep trying even though a drink sounds better than trying. it is so NOT a time to indulge in drugs and alcohol too much. Neptune lures you in, to forget the problems of this world, and before you know it you can't live without it. Be strong. You have to SEE and be a part of the changes, not a time for hiding or closing your eyes.
Look within. It will help so much. Forgive yourself and start anew. Make real change and live from your heart. Release selfishness and be concerned with all of us and our future. Be kind and generous with your time and your love. Find joy in the little things. Keep trying no matter how often you fall down, you'll appreciate it so much more when you finally accomplish your goals, but they will change from your original concept to the final outcome. Think of others and fairness and decency. And love yourself, flaws and all. No such thing as perfection in this world. It's all an illusion you know.
