The overall energy for this week:
Tarot and Energy Forecast temperature: silver linings
This week we will be heading into much needed relief, though that does not mean life won’t throw a few curveballs here and there. Mercury stationed direct on the 14th but we are still in the shadow of the retrograde. Continue to double and triple check your work, especially related to travel, communication, or agreements. Then on Friday we will be welcoming a New Moon in Taurus, signaling the end of this eclipse season and giving us a moment to assess where our treasures lie.
Are you still seeking treasures outside of yourself? Are you still on the hunt for that dream career, that dream home, that dream person? The love, security, and validation you are in need of are all within you. The blessings are already here; it’s up to you to perceive them.
While yes, many of us are heading away from challenges, we still have some things we need to tidy up this week. In particular with our material world — our finances, our homes, our livelihood, and even our relationships. What was the pain point that this past eclipse season opened for us? This is your moment to really sit with it and see how you can turn this coal into a diamond.
Beginning of the Week:
The energy of this week is asking us what kind of life do we want to live? What do we envision for ourselves? Everything you want in the future starts here! Right here is where the magic is, and now is the time to get clear on what you want. The form is up to the Universe (God, Source, etc) so don’t get attached to any specific outcomes or timeframes. Instead focus on how you feel as you consider that which you desire. This is how you will get into alignment.
As the Mercury retrograde dust settles, our vision will become clearer. You might have greater clarity than before on what it is you really want and how you want to live moving forward. Having that heading gives you the opportunity to course correct. Maybe you now realize that instead of being a Stockbroker you want to become a Kindergarten Teacher — now is your chance to pursue this dream; Spirit favors bold strides ahead!
I would hold off on taking action — for now it’s enough to see what’s over the horizon and create a strategy. Consider what tools and resources you have now (hint, hint, you have a lot more than you think). Sit with your thoughts and desires this week and allow them to show you the way forward.
P.S: many of these desires will require big changes to your finances, which means you also need to change your financial tactics. You may need to, for example, focus on saving more money.
Middle of the Week:
There may be some shadows and conflicts coming up over the next few days, making us second-guess ourselves. A lot of this insecurity has to do with comparison. You are comparing yourself to others; comparing how you measure up to those around you. Possibly some of you have even received some negative criticism recently that wounded your ego. Now is the time to clear and settle your mind.
This is the perfect opportunity to take a little solo retreat. Take some time for yourself, preferably outdoors or in nature. Connect with your body; breathe. Get grounded and allow your mind to relax. Make the time for meditation, contemplation, and even journaling to get that little hamster off your mental wheel. Stress will not offer the solutions you need, no matter how many times you go over the problem.
Once you give yourself time and space to retreat from your troubles, you’ll see that the solution was right in front of you all along. By the way, spending some much needed “me time” will also help you take a break from the drama of those around you — you need to set a healthy boundary this week, for your own good.
End of the Week:
Clean house! De-clutter! Spring cleaning time! It’s time to release the old and welcome the new — make space for new blessings!
Clean your physical spaces and rid yourself of things that no longer have value for you. Some of you may even find things you thought you lost while you are cleaning house. Open your windows and send the dusty energy on its way. If you have an altar or sacred space, this would be a good time to replenish your offerings.
This cleaning (which also includes energetic cleansing) is helping to obliterate those obstacles in your life. There are literal and metaphorical walls all around you, which are blocking your blessings. Possibly some of you are moving or will be ready to move soon. I can also see some of you will be leaving stale job opportunities as well, making space for something of greater value to you. That “dusty” energy can also apply to relationships. If you have had just about enough of someone, close the door. Block them, kick them out; do whatever you have to do to let them go.
If you have been struggling financially, this cleansing period will be super important for you. I also highly recommend taking a spiritual bath — check out my post on spiritual protection to learn how to prepare one.
