Well if you do not yet realize the intensity level that May is bringing, then put on your hard hat and lace up those working boots because we are all entering the Venus retrograde in Gemini/Solar eclipse “Danger Zone”. You think I am joking but it will not feel very funny. The grump factor is increasing to a level that many will snap and people who have been a completely reasonable Dr. Jekyll, may suddenly become Mr. Hyde.
Politics are going to heat up to a level that if you have not already stopped watching the news you might by the time the solar eclipse happens on May 20th. A person can only take so much and right now the “reasonable quota” for stress is so far off the Richter scale that some may just choose to remove themselves from the game of “He said, She said”.
That might not be a bad idea.
Negative people love to pull all the others off the cliff with them and it takes tremendous consciousness to not get sucked into the wake of chaos and despair that is threatening world situations right now.
The “Words of Truth” cards say it all: Fear, Integration, Denial, Stuck, Creator, and Exhaustion. Whew! What a bunch of words for this month. Spring is supposed to be about new beginnings, light returning, hope springing eternal, and the belief in abundance. Yet, right now, many are feeling such swings in polarity that the flexibility seems to have gone out the window and there is no spring in your step.
April’s showers might have felt like big storms and you can only hit a dock with so many big waves before that dock finally breaks down. Right now, it feels as if too many storms have undermined our internal and external stability and if one more wave hits our dock might collapse.
There is an undercurrent of manipulation and a feeling that those that want to create havoc and pain will not stop until they get everyone pulled down to their level. But don’t let them!
What creates shifts in awareness is a consensus that “Enough is enough!” There is a tipping point and that is coming. However, it will probably be June/July before we see the results of so much negativity. I am afraid that no one is going to like how it looks.
It takes great skill to find places to be in harmony when so much externally is affecting us internally. I personally choose to find peace from the place that nature will create acts of destruction in order for rebirth. Whether we like it or not does not matter. The realization that there are just cycles to life and that nature is not personal helps tremendously in these moments. Learning to navigate big waves with honesty and authenticity is all anyone can really do.
The planet is going through a difficult time for the next few years. If we take it personally it will be a long haul. These moments are here to awaken us to gifts that we forgot we had. It takes challenging moments to force us to reach inside the deepest parts of our soul and bring them forth. Choosing to be proactive rather than reactive is very helpful right now. You can let yourself become consumed by the fear, stuck-ness, denial, and exhaustion or you can step into a creative place and stay present with the integration that is attempting to happen.
There are so many pieces in our life that just do not seem to fit in any way that we can see. So there is this random searching quality that everyone is feeling as we quest to find where we fit in this new and evolving picture of our life. It has been doubly frustrating because much of who we have been just do not belong in this new place. We are looking for new tools to build this new reality of ours. None of us have been here before. All of us want to know the way. But the way is so unique and different from anything we have experienced that we feel confused and uncertain as to how to proceed.
I have a phrase, “If you don’t know, don’t go.”
There will be a moment when it becomes clear, but do not jump prematurely. You are not ready until you are ready. The universe is creating a calculated delay to get you to check and recheck before you jump. It is not trying to create a problem. It is trying to prevent a bigger mistake.
The key is to find what your heart and soul are calling you to do. Then, even if what you are being called to do is difficult, you do not mind so much if you are doing your calling. If you are doing something that you love and that uplifts and inspires others, who cares if it is a bit uncomfortable. Stretching is always about moving beyond the old places of knowing and comfort.
This month, would you rather be free or safe? Would you rather be open or constricted? Would you rather be fully feeling or numb and indifferent? Each of you gets to choose. No one can make the choices other than you. No one knows you better than you know yourself. Your high self understands the kinks, twists, turns, and backtracks that you need to grow and become the flowering of your being, right now. So listen and let it coax you into allowing something deeper to emerge.
It is spring. You are awakening from a very long slumber. You are a seed that is sprouting. You buried that seed deeply in the ground waiting for the perfect conditions. And that moment has arrived. But now that seed has to grow a long way to get to the light of the sun and emerge from the darkness that has protected it. It is perfect. You are ready. You are strong. Trust the part that knows how to get there better than your mind. You will find the way and the light will come. Keep going and know that this is a perfect moment.
