The week ahead: December 19th through December 25th:

1

We start this week with Mercury (planet of communication and information) going retrograde in the sign of Capricorn on the 19th. Mercury retrograde is a time to redo, rethink, revise, and review anything that needs a second look. I like to see it as a time to take a breather and make sure that whatever you’re building has a solid foundation upon which to grow. Capricorn is the sign of structure, patriarchy, and big business, and from all the research I’ve been doing on this, we should probably prep ourselves for some big things to come to light in terms of the world stage and how our current structures, patriarchy, and big business run themselves. I have a  feeling it won’t be pretty, nor has it been in the last 6 months of 2016. If anything has been covered up, expect it to come to light. Same thing goes with our own inner structures and the way we’ve set things up to work for ourselves. If you’ve been hiding, avoiding, or pretending that something is totally fine, expect something to bubble to the surface now in the full light of day. Sounds horrifying if you’ve been actively trying to avoid or hide anything, but please know it’s happening to help you see a deeper, more entrenched cycle you’ve allowed to go on, and this cycle most probably predates you (think family, culture, or country), but one you’ve carried as your own, nonetheless.

The winter solstice is also coming up on the 21st, asking us to go inward as we embark upon Capricorn season, questioning what our truth is and how we can use it to build a structure (family, business, personal, etc..) that lasts. Capricorn’s are known for being workaholics, so be careful this week of being single minded in your approach to whatever you’re trying to pursue or using work as an escape from facing what needs your help. Don’t forget the one’s you love in your everyday life! Especially if they’re a part of your plan for world domination 🙂

So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: How can you find new pathways to respond, instead of the habitual reactions you use without thought? How can you find the truth of what you’re trying to avoid while still accepting yourself, warts and all? I know that mercury retrograde season isn’t highly thought of, since it’s also a time that electronics and time frames seem to go wonky, but if you choose to re-frame this time as way to really get things right and to take your time to achieve a goal, then you have to know that anything is possible and that your story can change to one that better suites you and your needs. I know that what you may find or what may come up might be very painful for you and you’ll feel that all stability has left the building, but I’d like you to remember this– when everything feels like it’s falling a part, it’s actually falling into place. This week, find new ways to start responding and accept yourself for all that you are. You’re soul is ready for a fresh start and your heart has been waiting to love the whole you ❤

Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–pick what you’re drawn to). The stone you see in the picture above is Azurite. To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early Egyptians, Azurite was a most potent psychic stone and shrouded in mystery; its secrets known only to the highest priests and priestesses. It was called the Stone of Heaven by the ancient Chinese who believed it to open celestial gateways, and was revered by Greeks and Romans for its visionary insights and healing powers. For the Mayans, Azurite inspired the mystical self and facilitated the transfer of wisdom and knowledge via thought, while Native Americans used this sacred stone to contact their spiritual Indian guide, feel the presence and understand the message. For modern practitioners, Azurite’s metaphysical properties still mirror its legacy powers, clearing away tension and confusion, and opening the mind to new perspectives. This crystal stimulates the intellect, awakening the development of psychic and intuitive abilities, and brings inner vision into alignment with spiritual guidance. It may be used for the enhancement of dreams, entering a meditative or channeling state, and enables out of body journeys to take place safely. Azurite is beneficial in exploring past or alternate lives, and its ability to clear the Throat Chakra allows for precise verbalization recalled from these experiences.

If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about the Akashic Records. Your card goes on to say that when we learn that we are in fact co-creators of our own realities, we are accessing the most optimal vibrations of potential experiences available to us, and are effectively working with the Akashic records. When we talk about connecting with our “Higher Self”, we are also describing an understanding of our own Akashic records. We can connect with this source of loving information in order to awaken and be the best versions of ourselves. When you begin questioning your reality and become more aware of your spirit (just as you are aware of your own physical body), the universe has a funny way of helping you out–providing you with divine clues, synchronicities, and truths along the way. When this card shows up, it is a reminder of the endless possibilities and limitless potentials that are surely available to you through the Akashic records–these can be accessed in various ways–through insights, imagination, past-life memories, intuitive glimpses, meditation, dreams, prayer, high frequency foods, energetic downloads, loving connections with others, listening to music, dancing, exercising your body, exploring nature and the outdoors, interacting with animals, being creative, learning and gaining wisdom, and overall, following your heart. It defines being able to access your greatness, and the power to change your life for the better by being open and making healthy choices. Through learning to release the ego, self judgement, or judgment of others. By practicing forgiveness and unconditional love–there are so many contributing factors that may provide a clear navigation of your own Akashic records. It is a great journey that we each have the potential to take–are you ready to access the spark of your being? You were the one you have been waiting for!

If you chose card #2: Your message this week is about The Wheel of Fortune. Your card goes on to say that just as the seasons change in an everlasting cycle of energy, so does the path of your life. For every situation, there tends to be an archetypal opposite that keeps the balance in tact. Understanding the Wheel of Fortune signifies the state of acceptance that things may be good or bad at any given time. Do not be discouraged by the difficulties or low points–these too will pass. In modeling unconditional love and gratitude, it is easier to identify the positive moments as they come, and to attract more abundance into your life. Know that sometimes, you may need to take a leap into the unknown in order to move forward–you alone have the power to create the life you desire and to overcome any challenges along the way. Look for the lessons instead of giving in to struggle. That is what the wheel is all about, after all. Questions to ask yourself right now: How can I learn from the choices I have made? How can I set my intentions, in order to attract more love and abundance into my life? Additional Meanings: Cycles • Transformation • Transition • Change • New Beginnings • Life lessons • Akashic records.

If you chose card #3: Your message this week is about the Nice of Cups. Your card goes on to say that this is one of the most joyful and harmonious cards of the Tarot, the Nine of Cups indicates a time of satisfaction and completion! Your wishes and desires are finally beginning to manifest, leaving you with a renewed sense of emotional stability and spiritual strength. You are at a healed stage that comes after struggles have passed. Now is the time to enjoy life’s pleasures and luxuries after everything you have worked for. A positive balance of self fulfilled dreams and intuitive insights. Additional Meanings: Romantic fulfillment • Advancement • Goodwill • Dreams • Kindness • Healing • Abundance.

My hope for you this week is that you’re ready to know what’s wrong so that you can make it right. The sign of Capricorn is asking us to make a commitment to doing the work that’s needed, and self mastery is going to be a key. Mercury Retrograde is asking us to look at that way we communicate the information we receive and give to ourselves and others–is it right? Is it true? Is it helpful? Now is the time to start disciplining yourself for what’s to come and to face all parts of yourself. When in doubt, love who you are and know that whomever that may be for you, is beautiful and perfect just as she/he is ❤

This is your week! Make it an amazing one! 🙂
