What a build up to the New Moon, eh? Mercury has finally gone direct although things are slow this week energy wise. More time for integration.
I don’t know how you’re feeling, but the build up was so intense that I feel it hasn’t fully set in and feels like an anti-climax! Last weeks energy was draining, but there was air of excitement.
This week, I’m feeling a serious edge to the energy. It’s time for us to sit with that seriousness and for those of us that find it difficult to take things seriously, and I mean me, that is really something to contend with.
It’s reflective of the inner battles that we are facing and this week, the energy is showing us exactly what it is that we are fighting. It’s also bringing up where the conflicts and paradoxes lie in our belief systems. It’s deep and intense work, and I feel that we’ve had a break from working on ourselves. It feels like although there is a need to go back in, there is avoidance.
The biggest battle is with the unknown parts of us that are now starting to rise to the surface. What is it that you want to find in yourself that you feel you have been lacking in? This question is being answered with the energy this week, and yes it is pushing us to sit with it.
On a personal level, I’m back to needing solitude to just with myself and facing the shadows. On one level it doesn’t feel like it’s time. On another level, it feels like there is nothing to do except just sit with whatever is coming up..
In the background, there is a fire burning but it’s a slow burn. At this time, we are being required to use the energies of all the Elements – Fire, Air, Water, Earth and I feel that we are learning what our unique balance of these energies are. We are starting to come to an understanding of what we need to draw from these elements to make up our unique signature.
The pot is being stirred, slowly. An earthenware pot, heated by a wood fire, full of water, releasing magical vapours. We don’t know what will be left. We’re just trying to keep it all in balance before we are shown what’s on the horizon.
The magic of the New Moon is creation and I do sense that once we’ve worked out just what it is that we want, it will manifest. The trick is working through being boiled at the same time as sensing what it is we want.
One thing is very clear though and this is the sureness of knowing what we do not want. This provides us with contrast and so take that as a helpful sign. If it is not serving you, it needs to go and there is now space to release and let go.
It’s an odd energy and in Ascension terms, it feels like another transitional phase where adjustment is required. We are losing more and more of what we thought we were and this can be challenging when we live in world that requires identity. Particularly more so when we have a mind that needs to make sense of it all.
Feel your way through this phase. It may feel more and more pressured, but just as the diamond, the compression will make you shine.
If you need any help and support, or feel like you’re being squeezed, please do give me a call if I can assist.
