This week's energy theme is asking you to make changes so you can ultimately work smarter, not harder. If you are moving from a place of habit, pattern, and addiction, these are surfacing in major ways. You are being asked to shift to a place of awareness, creativity, and surrender. You may find yourself doing a lot of soul searching as you are faced with experiences that remind you of what needs to be wrapped up and brought to a close. You may feel confused and worried as you let go of the past but aren't yet clear about the future. It's okay to not know, hanging out in the in between is where you are required to be right now. We are breaking a cycle of chasing things as we evolve into a deeper power of creation. You may find yourself battling wants versus needs.
There is so much energy and focus around work and career right now. Be careful not to fall into fear with it but to surrender your situation to spirt and ask for help. If you are feeling fear your energy tends to panic and you reach for quick and familiar fixes. But right now your work and career are evolving, it's time for a new incarnation of certain projects, places, and offerings. Some of you may find yourself rebranding or restructuring, or just tweaking things to be more efficient, and moving ahead with new ideas. Although this process can be unnerving, it's about getting you onto an easier path. You may be feeling resistance toward making changes but ultimately the challenge involved with implementing healthy changes will be well worth it. Instead of moving forward from the familiar, we are being forced to get quiet, listen, and connect with the WHY behind any choices and decisions. Be aware of not running on autopilot right now and creating unnecessary stress for yourself. If something isn't working, step back, gain some perspective, and look for what can be done differently moving forward. There are things that aren't working as well as they used to, get in their and pluck the weeds. A mental decluttering will help to clear the way for new insights to take root. So often you ask for things you don't really want but believe you need. It's time to let go of living from lack and fear and to get back to the abundance and faith in your work, finances, and career.
Work with spirit more closely and set an intention of moving forward from all the wisdom of your past experiences and life lessons. Use your past to propel you forward so you aren't just hitting repeat and replaying the same life lessons. Fear may have had you acting first and seeking second. But spirit reminds you to save yourself unnecessary strife by seeking first and actioning from awareness. This means take some time to just be, let the fog clear and the dust settle, so that when you do make a move, it's the right one. There's a big difference between perseverance and blind progress.
The energy of this week is so powerful! I am loving the summer solstice vibes and am excited to teach my workshop this weekend. This week's energy theme has you making the shift into a more energized and illuminated state. But keep in mind it will continue to be in the energy of this year where it happens in a gradual, slow and steady build. So no, you won't become the road runner overnight, and yes, patience will continue to be a theme this year, but you will feel relieved sensing this increasing wave of energy. The elementals compare it to a hike, the first half of this year had you climbing uphill, right now and for the summer you are enjoying the view, and then in the fall and winter, you get to enjoy your walk down.
The energy and patterns this week coming up for clearing have been around fear of success. Blocks that are preventing you from feeling comfortable expanding into new territory and soaring to new heights have surfaced. Lack of confidence and past disappointments are ready to release as you reconnect with your dreams and wants. This is the perfect week and weekend, especially Thursday, to sit in ceremony and let spirit shed light on some important awarenesses. Here are some questions spirit recommends meditating on:
This is a great week to get out of your own way and let spirit lead. It's one thing to wish for what you want, it's another to will it into being. And this is the time for your wishing and willing to come together and make magic. It's never too late to make a change, to heal, and to grow. This is your week to cast light into any remaining shadows of the past as you declare it time to emerge and fly high as the brave soul you have become.
This week's energy theme has many people feeling confused and conflicted. This new moon in Gemini asks you to acknowledge, accept, and honour all aspects of yourself. Many people find Geminis to be confusing and contradicting characters because they can appear to be two people, and others wonder, which one are you? Geminis are often self-conflicted between having the awareness of different aspects of themselves and struggling to know which is their truth. They are adept at indecision and changing their minds. The truth is that they are all those aspects, as we all are. And this journey is about honouring all of them and finding balance. The affirmation and practice this week is: I mean what I say and I say what I mean. Do your words and actions match? Are you living an authentic life?
This picture above was taken as I was writing this blog and happened to glance over at my phone. It was a moment of manifestation and confirmation. The number sign of 11:11 saying pay attention to your thoughts, and the lioness representing balance. The lioness is my power animal, she is equally fierce and lovingly maternal. I'm a Leo and my sister is a Gemini. We are best friends and part of what makes our energy such a friendly and supportive match is that we both relate to and share an air of mystery. I've had people express their confusion to me, not understanding how in their words, I can be strong and sweet at the same time. If the depth of my fierceness comes out they then think my prior sweetness must have been a lie. And isn't this exactly what is being called out on the world stage right now? We are breaking down this barrier and belief that you can only be this or that. You are good or bad, right or wrong, things are black or white, blah, de blah, blah. We are all masculine and feminine, we are all darkness and light. If you are making others uncomfortable with your healthy balance of power, you are doing your soul work, so keep it up! The human ego based illusion of comfort wants to label things, to put you in a box, to know what to expect, to have you behave a certain way. But it's all b.s. When you are honouring your emotions and processing them properly, you are always flowing from one aspect of yourself to the next in divine rhythm. And that's what Gemini has to remind us of and to offer us. Gemini is dragging that twin out of the shadow and saying, don't forget about this part.
This week asks you to go inward and put your focus back on you. Take some space and time to reconnect with your personal truth. Ask spirit for help in bringing your inner and outer worlds into harmony and alignment. Ask for support in honouring all aspects of yourself without judgment. Commit to a deeper level of authenticity. When you stop boxing yourself in and pull all aspects of yourself out from the shadows and into the light, you're an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. And all that depression, anxiety, and fear energy won't hold power over you anymore. Because you'll turn around and give that piece the big old hug it really wants and needs. You will kill it with kindness knowing it's just another beautiful aspect of you finding its strength.
The terms that have been surfacing repeatedly this week are self-permission and sabotage. The current energy theme is asking you to practice discipline. And it's brought up patterns for clearing around needing or waiting for permission. Spirit reminds you that you came here to shine your inner light as bright as you can, and you don't need permission to do so. It's your destiny to be the best and brightest version of you. So check in and see if there are any blocks preventing you from elevating a relationship in your life. It may be your relationship with work, health, love, or all of the relationships in your life. Do you feel fearful that you'll outgrow people in your life? Do you feel scared that the more you have, the more you'll have to lose? Or perhaps you've burdened yourself with way too much pressure and are overwhelmed to make any change. Take some time to sit with spirit and give yourself permission to ignite your light and shine it out that much brighter, see it cut through the darkness of fear. Remind yourself that you are safe to shine and that sitting on the sidelines isn't safe, it's settling.
Because you are being asked to practice discipline the sabotage piece may primarily take the form of procrastination. It can also show up in various other ways such as comfort eating, self-medicating, and perfectionism. Try to be disciplined while remaining balanced. A message that has also been coming up is the need to have more fun. You may be feeling a bit burnt out or are struggling to get re-energized. Spirit says just start having more fun. The fun factor is also what will maintain balance so you don't dodge the discipline. If you aren't having fun and staying connected to why you are honouring the discipline, you'll lose your drive. Stay focused on your goal and the reward, and enjoy reaching it.
There has been a lot of collective consciousness clearing and it's important to pray and trust in spirit right now. Be conscious of not holding sadness, pain or grief in your heart over what you feel isn't happening. But rather feel and process it so you can clear space for the drive and discipline to work its magic, focusing on what you can make happen. Meet others where they are at but with the intention of lifting energy as opposed to joining it. The sabotage piece will want you to slip into the energy versus bringing your light to stand beside it. And that's why the self-permission is so important, it allows you to honour others while standing strong in your self. The elementals say, be like a tree, that sways joyfully in the breeze with the others but never forsakes its own roots.
