The Chariot, The Queen of Water and the Ace of Fire reversed
I don’t know about you, but I have perfected the ability to exert my will and get things done. I was raised within this model, and, I am still super proud of all that I can accomplish.
As I have discovered recently, my ability to push through is so ingrained that I have to pay attention to every movement of my body, every thought in my mind and every emotional response in order to get out of the “make it happen” mode and get into the receiving mode.
In other words, I have to watch myself like a hawk:)
Please excuse my Astrology mumbo jumbo for just a moment.
On August 22nd, when Venus in retrograde squared Jupiter direct and Neptune was opposing Mars, I really felt the need to shift. I realized that I had been swimming this way all of my life, and that it had not really worked.
What is interesting to me is that Venus and Jupiter are squaring each other again this Sunday, but now Jupiter is retrograde and Venus is direct.
And, on this New Moon in Virgo, we have the Sun and Moon opposing Neptune.
So Neptune is in this mix again.
Neptune is the Divine or Spirit. It is the womb that cradles us at the beginning of our life. It is also the ethereal that carries us out of this World with such grace and love.
Neptune is about going with the flow, trusting in a higher power (and/or the higher power within). It is about knowing oneself as of the whole and residing in a state of unconditional love.
And Neptune is about neutrality, which is probably Neptune’s highest lesson since it is tough to stay neutral about our own life.
There is no striving with Neptune. You don’t push your way upstream, you flow.
I think we are all experiencing this energy more and more these days as we step into this New World energy.
This doesn’t mean you sit back eating bon bons and do nothing.
It means you move with your Soul.
You move with Spirit.
Sometimes you may need to move fast and sometimes you can float a bit. But no matter what, you can trust that you are not alone and that you are loved and cherished.
I am a big believer that we all came here for a reason. That every single person has a unique gift and expression that only they can bring in.
It is this individual spark in every being that contributes to the whole and makes us complete as a species.
Every person is needed.
So, doesn’t it make sense, that you would have help and guidance? Isn’t it logical that Spirit would be cheering you on? And, wouldn’t there be times that we could be carried by the wave instead of having to fight the current?
If we accept this, we can begin to relax and trust.
Trusting that spark within us that knows “who we are, what we are, and how we serve”. - Paul Selig.
Then we can move with love, decide with love and BE love.
I don’t know about you, but I know a day is coming when I wake up like a kid on Christmas morning. When I can not wait for my feet to hit the ground so that I may share my gifts with the World and receive the gift of others.
The day when we stop playing small.
I can feel it. Can you?
We are all powerful creators, and we all came here to create a better World together.
Not one being is any better than the next.
All are honored, loved and needed.
Much love on this New Moon in Virgo!
These are my creations of The Chariot, The Queen of Water and the Ace of Fire.
