The week ahead: October 5th through October 11th:

Mercury retrograde is finally coming to a close on October 9th. For a few days afterwards, I would still continue to double check anything you post up or sign off on, and make sure all the correct information is there. Since this retrograde is in the sign of Libra, you may have noticed a couple things coming to the forefront since September the 17th. Themes of relating to others, coming to terms with things, and finding fairness in a given situation are just a couple ways this time could be manifesting for you. Any retrograde period is here to help us gather more information, which helps us to see clearly what’s going on, and since Libra is an air sign, it’s almost like we were able to look at these different themes from a cerebral standpoint–helping us to bridge the past with opportunities to resolve long standing relationship issues and bring the truth of the situation to light. Sometimes those realizations might be painful, and sometimes it’s like a large burden is taken off of your shoulders. All of this realization may also help you to reflect on what fragments you, distracts you, or throws you off course. It may all seem like it’s down a rabbit hole from there, but you should walk away from this time with a clear understanding of what brings you peace, because ultimately, that’s your end goal; being at peace with yourself and all the relationships you have in your life. You have a couple days left to use this time to it’s ultimate potential: make a plan to make things right with a certain relationship, use the info you’ve gathered here to survive during times when you get triggered by something that’s painful, and strive to be fair in all that you do. It’s time you know that you’re worthy of the peace you’ve been searching for, my friend ❤

Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick on, two, or all three cards. Pick what you’re drawn to). The stone you see in the picture is rose quartz. Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. One of the most important stones for Heart Chakra work, Rose Quartz opens the heart to all types of love – love of self, love of family, love of friends, romantic love. Because it is a type of quartz, Rose Quartz does have a high energy, but its vibe is also calming and soothing. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation, and forgiveness of others. Lowering stress and tension in the heart, Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, and allows healing of heart issues and dis-ease associated with holding on to such negative emotions.

The painting in the picture above was done by my little sister, Corrinne. I love this painting and wanted to bring forth some of the totem power of the fox this week to help us through. Fox animal and symbolism: cunning, strategy, quick-thinking, adaptability, cleverness, and wisdom. If you’d like to know more about this awesome animal, please go here.

If you chose card #1: Your message this week is to release judgments about yourself and others, and focus on the love and light that is within everyone. Your card goes on to say that gentleness is the strength behind true power, and it comes from feeding yourself with nourishing words, thoughts, deeds, intentions, and all forms of food. Shield yourself from harshness by placing an intention to attract only kind and gentle life lessons and relationships. Transform harshness into gentleness by refusing to see anything but the shining light that’s within each person and situation. This intention begins with your relationship with yourself. Be very gentle with yourself in all ways. Be happy, be kind, be sweet, but most of all, be true to you. Additional Meanings: Release guilt and shame to heaven for healing and transmutation • Keep your thoughts about yourself and others positive • Avoid gossip or badmouthing of yourself or others •  Forgive yourself or another • Don’t be so hard on yourself or others • Release perfectionist tendencies.

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is to unleash your adventurous side! Take risks and be daring. Your card goes on to say that don’t play it safe right now. Instead, take bold action in the direction of your true heart’s desire. Success comes not from timidity but from committing yourself fully to realizing your dreams. Hold the clear intention of success and it shall come about. Enjoy the excitement of taking risks, of being bold, and of being daring. And be sure to celebrate your success with a party or by splurging on a wonderful indulgence! Additional Meanings: Take a risk• Make a bold life change • Appreciate your body • Flirt • Go have fun and celebrate.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is that the love you have shared is eternal, regardless of the situation. Your card goes on to say that when it comes to matters of the heart, your help is here. It’s all around you, and also inside of you. Your inner wisdom may seem quieted buy any pain that you feel. Yet, be assured that the healing you’re undergoing is swift and efficient, and you truly are healing from the inside out. First, your heart must heal from its grief, loneliness, and any feelings of betrayal. This can take some time, so be patient with yourself. Treat yourself as you would any ailing person: with caution, gentleness, and tenderness. Next, get yourself out into the world–not in a harsh fashion, but with outings to parks, forests, and such, which are essential to lightening your outlook. Nature is the great healer, you see. That’s why Isolt is frequently amidst the flowers and the trees. Although they may seem quiet on the outside, they’re quite talkative when you breathe and simply ingest their magical tones in conversation. Spend time among the forest and the trees, as well as the plants and the animals, and you’ll regain your foot hold upon this planet. You’ll revive your sense of spirit, and your desire to tread among the living once again. I promise that your heart will mend, and that you’ll also help others in this fashion along the way. Additional Meanings: Love from your romantic partner is eternal, regardless of outward appearances • You’re healing from a breakup • You’re healing from some other type of loss • Let go of an old relationship to make room for a new one • The love that you send into the world is an important part of your Divine purpose • Your deceased loved one is happy and sends you love.

My hope for you this week is that you can challenge your assumptions about the relationships in your life that are causing you pain. This isn’t true in every situation, but it takes two to tango and you may have done some unsavory things right back. How can you take responsibility for your part in how things transpired? If someone else where to come and look at this situation objectively, how would they rule in your favor? In the other party? Let things come to light that you’ve long buried, and face what it is that this needs to teach you. When you have these profound “come to Jesus” moments with the people and situations that trigger you, you find a golden key. This golden key unlocks a higher perspective into who you are and what makes you tick. When you understand yourself better, the next time something triggers you, you can stop and observe instead of getting sucked in and participating (responding vs reacting). You’ll be able to talk yourself down and choose a better path. Allow yourself to become aware and release what’s been keeping you hostage this week–for your relationship with yourself, for your relationships with others, and for your own peace.

This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
