A Brief Message in Turbulent Times (28 August 2017)


Bearing in mind the intense weather patterns in the US at this time, it comes as no surprise to see the Scorpio Moon trining Ceres in Cancer and Chiron in Pisces. This is a time to be more delicate with our emotions and those of other people, whilst remembering to manage the more practical aspects of our daily lives.

Whilst we can extend a helping hand to others in times of need, and to receive that help if we are in those circumstances – be mindful of falling into older, co-dependent patterns.

Be more concrete in manifesting the realizations that came through for you during the August Eclipses. It´s already time to start that process. The insights you gained then will help you find a more balanced understanding of the relationship between give-and-take, and in knowing where / what / whom you truly want to invest your emotional energy in.

Through all this, remember that Mercury is in Virgo – She who Manages.

Be assertive in what you are willing to give and receive at this time and remember to honor another´s energy, time and space. The act of emotional facilitation is priceless at this time, but only if the space-holder remains grounded, discerning and with their eye on the ball.

Powerful boundaries are needed to ensure that help reaches those who require it the most – whilst continuing to manage our own day-to-day existences and requirements. Turning a blind eye to what is happening around you, or, to what is happening in your own life is not ideal. A balanced view is what is required.

Be practical with your goals right now and take a step-by-step approach to whatever comes up your way. Remember that emotions have their rightful place in the world, but not at the expense of all else. No matter how overwhelmed you may be feeling right now, practical action will steer you to where you need to go. Be strategic.

Redirect your energies into creating and holding a healthier space for yourself (and potentially others once you can do so for yourself). Watch what you eat and what messages your body is giving you right now. You may be surprised to find just how much of what you´re feeling ties into what is happening at the collective level.

Keep at it – Step by step, bit by bit, day by day.
