This week in circle, we talked about the details of where we “are” in terms of planets, phases, seasons. We are just about to enter a New Moon next Monday, August 25th, in Virgo. The Sun enters this same sign this Saturday, August 23rd, and the last solar cycle before Autumn Equinox begins. This is the harvest, the gathering time. We begin to pull together all we have watered, visioned, created & nurtured. Gathering and receiving all the experiences that support our purpose is what this time is about. Are you ready to receive?
The support available to us is astounding, even in the tiniest of ways. First let me show you the basic energies holding us in support right now: We have a trine with Uranus (Connection with Great Spirit), Mercury (Communication from Guides & Answers), and Mars (Primal Force, movement toward Right Action) – All lining up with a quixunct to Saturn (Ancient Wisdom, Seven Generations), bringing challenges, redirection, adjustments and diversions. Don’t think stops & starts are wrong right now, even with all that is going for us, stops and halts have purpose and reason. All is in alignment to put us in touch with the sacred…and our self.
When something slows you down, ground and check your space. What emotions are manifesting, and where does it take you out of your joy and peace. Check the directions see if something calls to you. Check to see if elements or one of the four kingdoms are making themselves known. I was craving water something terrible at Circle Monday…Ha! It was “faith” (the lesson of the West) that ended up revealing itself to me later this week!
On my way here today, I found myself “stuck” behind a driver going *gasp* the speed limit. I grew agitated and impatient, wanting to be where I had not arrived yet. Then I remembered the part about hold-ups, and took a couple deep breaths and thought about where my impatience came from. It came from a lack of trust (faith) that I was going to get myself where I wanted to be exactly when I wanted to be there…which was NOW. I was trying to control it and do it all myself. I let my grip on the steering wheel relax and decided to let my guides help with the drive. I concentrated on my grounding and working the automobile, but allowed the rest to be taken care of.
….Immediately, the driver turned…all other cars on the road were gone, I sailed through several green lights all the way through the busiest intersections in town! Even when I did hit a red light…I realized that it wasn’t a blockage, just a slow down for safety. I was still going to “get there” and five minutes of stress give or take were only going to get in the way of my thoughts. This way, I glided with my guides the rest of the ride and enjoyed the view and the revelation along the way…wow, right?
THAT is exactly how this energy is working for us right now. It’s right here for us to harvest and receive, if we just allow for it and pay attention. The moments, thoughts, ideas and feelings we catch ourselves in this week are revealing to us more and more about our selves and our alignment with our purpose.
This is a great time to start a new pattern, change old beliefs for new ones, harvest your best self in the moment – While being fully supported by the Universe/Creator.
Once you receive the messages, watch how they reinforce each other. I realize that just the revelation of my feelings of impatience vs. faith is just the tip of the cookie. I’m sure the next week will have me see this reflection is a thousand different ways, big & small. All I can do is stay grounded and keep taking the next step…
Both Circles this Monday (women’s & men’s) were visited by chickadee. By the second circle, they were even flying around inside the tent and sitting on the branches nearby during meditation. The chickadee medicine is “cheerful & truthful expression.” According to Ted Andrews’ book, Animal Speak, there are seven types of chickadees, representing the sacred 7 - Associated with the seven rays of power, seven planets, seven energy bodies of a human being, and the seven energy centers.
These tiny messengers are all around us. In finding our truth, we receive more joy in being here on the planet, and our expression of this joy radiates to All. Wow, just wow. We are so lucky to be right here, right now, receiving our harvest!
