The potential this week is so fucking powerful. We are surrounded by all the energies required for money, magic and miracles. We have passed nearly all the tests of master level manifestation -- nurturing the seeds of inspiration, watering them with emotion, sustaining focus through how we speak and think -- and now we head into our final feat -- becoming that which we desire.
The person who goes away seeking is not the same one who returns. We are changed by the journey, molded in the shape of our quest. It's time to reintroduce ourselves to ourselves, and to the world. Our words and thoughts are so potent now, but what are our decrees? Are we speaking the same old script into existence because we lack the discipline to rewrite new lines for our new minds? As we head into Mercury retrograde on Saturday and the momentum we've been gaining slows way, way down, know this is the love language of our Creator. Retrogrades are necessary cosmic reviews before new beginnings, to keep us from polluting a fresh start with the same old shit. The bible says, "Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?" Even if Goddess herself removed the veil from your eyes, she cannot make you SEE.
You cannot have what you ask for while still identifying with the version of yourself who doesn't yet have it. So as you go forth into the land of answered prayers, who are YOU?
This week carries the energy of marriage, of the joining of the divine masculine with the divine feminine, of faith with action, of intuition and execution, of within as without, as above as below. We need both ends of pole so that the center holds. The joining together of opposites, the meeting of heaven and earth, creates the portal through which our new selves and new future are birthed.
We are being asked to review the parts of ourselves that seem to be at odds, to respect the angles that appear to be opposites but fit together in perfect symmetry to call forward our dreams. We are both midwife and baby; we must use the tension of our personal paradox to push and pull ourselves through.
Aries, you're feeling the contradiction between how much to rest and how much to work. On one hand you love your work; its abundant, your money is good, your quality of work is excellent, you're persistent and things are just humming and flowing along. And that would be awesome if sometimes you didn't want to just lie down and be still because old heartache rises up occasionally and makes it hard to function. You wish it would just be one or the other -- that you could have less ambition or a harder heart -- but that isn't in the cards. Is there any way you could put your stellar work ethic to use healing and handling (shout out to Olivia Pope) old pains? Just a suggestion...
In the bible Jesus says we can move mountains if we only have the faith of a mustard seed. I've never seen a mustard seed but I've heard they're really tiny. We only need a little bit of faith. A dab. A dollop. That's not really your style though, Taurus. You could move seven mountains with your secret stash of mustard seeds, because you are always prepared and your access and resources are unparalleled. In fact, who needs to even wait for mustard seeds or faith or any of that foolishness when we could just round up a team of giants and superheroes and rig harnesses to their waists and get some alien technology to pull the...
What was I saying? I got so caught up in that fantasy of just doing it my damn self. I'm with you Taurus! Who needs to trust the universe when we can just upset the foundation of heaven and earth? Now if only there were some way to turn your supernatural ability to force your fortune into a tool that creates patience. If anyone can figure it out, you can.
Its quite the paradox Gemini; if I asked your advice on the actions I should take to get what I want, you wouldn't hesitate to lay out a six point plan with with infographics, addendums and a resource list for further reading. But if I asked you what you were going to do to get what YOU want, you'd stare at me blankly and crack a joke to deflect the wave of panic threatening to carry you away. Its time for you to be your own know-it-all, Gemini. Your instincts are rarely wrong. You KNOW what to do. Lay out the plan and trust yourself.
Yours is the classic dichotomy between the feminine and masculine, intellect and intuition, giving and receiving. On one hand you want to be clear and bright with your magical light, announcing to all who come near your plans for growth and radiance in your life and the lives of your loved ones. #TeamKissyFace
On the other hand, you want to be the cosmic gardener behind the scenes, blessing the inner realms with your nurturing vibes, quietly fertilizing your tribe with love. #TeamTextFirst
You don't have to choose! Not either/or. Both/and, remember? You're so good at gauging your what-I-can-give-today meter, at knowing when to emerge and when to retreat, when to back light and when to highlight. You got this.
You're very clever Leo, but I'm on to you. You're so blessed, abundant, powerful and creative. A modern day Midas with great hair, everything you touch turns to gold. You give so much of your time and energy to others, and why not? You want to do good in your hood since you're (hashtag) blessed. That's what's up.
You ain't fooling me though. When was the last time you let someone give YOU something? Energy flows both ways. How can blessings keep flowing out if you don't let any in? Asking for a (Leo) friend...
During your birthday season, GIVE someone the pleasure of knowing how good it feels to give to YOU. Give the gift of being able to RECEIVE.
Hey Virgo boos, can I talk to you for a second? Come here. I need to spill some tea about our tribe but Imma whisper because you know we don't like folks in our business. *deep breath*
Here goes: We don't know everything. Sometimes we're wrong. We might know the facts but facts don't always equal truth. Sometimes we get so confident in what we THINK we know that we mess around and lie to ourselves and our loved ones. Sometimes our over active imagination runs away with us. Far away. (Swear to God Virgos are Ally McBeal -- if you don't know who that is, either look it up or get your young ass out my horoscopes.) We have to shut up for a bit and figure out what our new truth, our new reality is. Only a blend of facts and fantasy will do. In the meantime, we have to learn to say (gasp! eek!) I don't know.
Hey Libra! Look at you, all beautiful, peaceful, balanced. Look at you, transmuting the energy of your lower nature into a higher vibration, turning your disgust to compassion and your hatred to illumination. Everyone loves you, and in return you ruffle no feathers and make no scenes. Team serene, Mr. and Mrs. Okay With Everything, from the kingdom of In It But Not Of It, Always Rise Above It.
Oh, so y'all don't be wanting to fuck people up out here? Y'all don't be wanting to balance these scales of justice all over your enemies ass? Oh Libra. Stop hiding your other face. Some of these fools deserve to see it. Its okay to fight back. You'll win.
Quite a contradiction we're looking at here, Scorpio. On the one hand, you worry yourself to death daily. You categorize and prioritize your concerns ranking from least to most likely, from sickliest to deadliest, from daily inconvenience to life-changing emergency. People don't understand your fears but they haven't survived what you've survived. They don't get it and you don't have to explain.
On the other hand, you have the love and compassion of 94 simultaneous hearts thinking about baby kittens. You feel everybody's feelings, and you're one of the few signs who can hold space for all that emotion without being overwhelmed by it. Your experiences haven't made you bitter at all, they've made you the most compassionate person on earth.
So. You know how when people tell you their sad stories, and you know just what to say because you've been there? Learn to turn that superpower inward and give your own compassion and empathy to YOU. The world needs you to give yourself the version of yourself that you give freely away. We need you to love you like you love us. Make sense?
Hey Sag! Did I catch you at the wrong time? Were you just headed out to a party/ baby-shower / quick weekend trip / work meeting / barbecue / poker night / movie night / Taco & Tequila Tuesday? Got a second? No? Okay can I just walk with you then? I'll be quick.
When you gon' sit your ass down somewhere? Don't look at me like that, it ain't a trick question. You know you need to sit your ass down somewhere and rest and meditate and get grounded in your body and get out of your head.
There is nothing wrong with kicking it, nothing at all. You are the life of the party, and everyone loves to see you coming and hates to see you go. But don't use your friends to avoid yourself. Don't use fun as a distraction from the inner work that HAS to happen. Can you maybe (don't get mad), just maybe... talk to your friends about what's going on with you? Isn't that what they're there for?
Feel free to dismiss everything I'm saying as ridiculous lies, as I am a Virgo and a few paragraphs ago I fully admitted that sometimes we don't know what the hell we're talking about.
Am I wrong though?
Oh Capricorn, I feel you. You want it how you want it and ain't nothing wrong with that. You want to be in charge, and you should! Look how hard you work to provide for yourself and your loved ones. Look how much you sacrificed to get where you are, so that everyone can be set up. You don't do it just for you. Do you?
Don't you? Let's be honest for a second. You try to keep your finances in such excellent shape and your responsibilities in order because that's how YOU want it. You've learned that happiness is an inside job and the team can only be as good as its leader, and nothing makes you happier than having your shit together. Except sometimes you want to run away from your own kingdom because the more moving parts you provide for, the less you can control, and sometimes -- due to no fault of your own -- shit falls apart. If its anything you hate its chaos and complications, even if it brings laughter and joy.
Luckily its the season of Both/And, not Either/Or. You don't have to choose between yourself and your tribe. You just have to take turns. Balance. Take better care of you so you can take better care of them.
You're caught between moving on and staying put, Aquarius, and that's a tough place to be. At best its uncomfortable; at worst, it defies the laws of physics. Some hard shit went down, and you can't change it or fix it, all you can do is gather your hurt feelings and move toward healing.
Is that really all you can do though? Can't you stay? Can't you wallow in it a little bit? Have you ever heard of healing pain? If you believed your agony had a purpose, could you stand it a little longer? Often its not so much what happens that hurts, but what we tell ourselves about it. Instead of changing your life, can you maybe just change your story?
So much energy, Pisces! So much spirit! So much fire! So much perseverance and stick-to-it-tive-ness! You can accomplish anything you want. Literally, anything. For a water sign, you certainly have all magic and internal firepower required to claim what you desire.
You know, when you get out of bed. When you can stop over thinking and obsessing and worrying about what to to do, why to do, how to do, when to do, what could go wrong, how it could go wrong, when it could go wrong, why it could wrong, when you could fail, how you could fail, why you might fail, where you could fail...
Oh you want me to stop. Cool. Can YOU stop though? Seriously. You're amazing. YOU'RE AMAZING. You can't fail at being amazing, no matter what happens. In no scenario, in no outcome, will you look up and realize you've failed at being awesome, inspirational, beautiful, creative and blessed.
Tell your thoughts to fuck themselves because you have some wonderful-ing to do.
