This weekend is super charged with energies that will bring change and disrupt to bring transformation. The Solstice is the nature’s way to remind us not to take things for granted that our modern life is fragile. For example all the technology in the world cannot replace the sunlight, and things don’t always go to plan.
We have to be ready to change to be able to transform and shift our consciousness. Because new beginnings are on the way.
November’s full moon would have given most of us a new sense of determination to make things work so new ideas and opportunities would have been shown to you. Hard work and that resolve would have brought in some results. However these last week or so would have seen you feel a little unbalanced.
There is a sudden sense of loss of direction and questions may have risen about purpose. Don’t be disheartened as this is temporary! Just pause and put your trust in the universe. Take all the actions you need to and leave it to work its magic until after the holidays. There are some things you simply cannot rush through. There will be things that will crop up to help you tweak your plans which you wouldn’t be able to do on hindsight. So just remember that a delay or pause isn’t always a bad thing.
One of the things about the Solstice combined with the Full Moon is that it will TRIGGER you but you won’t know why! Hence most of us are feeling a little angry and some will even experience that sinking feeling in the stomach. Look beyond the situations that activate these response from you. Who and why? What can you do to change it? These are lessons and messages in some way. Always dig deeper than the surface to understand why and then look for the “how”. How to deal with it? For example is there someone who keeps spewing negativity on FB that makes you angry? How can you do deal with it? Unfollow, defriend, block, ignore or just step away from Facebook for a while? The choice is yours.
In order to shift or grow as a person, we have to keep filtering out the toxic people and situations so we literally leave the baggage behind. So times like this help us to let go so we have less issues to deal with in the New Year. Sometimes it is best to just cut the cord! It doesn’t mean you are a bad person.
The energy feels a little mischievous! I sense that some of us are feeling rebellious and will want to go against the grain! This can be a useful thing if you are someone who goes out of their way to make everyone else happy or a stickler to the rules. Doing things differently and being a little playful could really help you grow.
If you are a little empathetic or sensitive to energy then you will have felt a strong pull towards the unknown. It is like you know there is a big transformation taking place but you can’t put your finger on it. Ears may be ringing, headaches and also very tense neck muscles.
So this means you have to LISTEN more than you talk this week. You are either not listening to what is being said, so trying to hide from the situation or not allowing anyone else’s opinion in. Time to listen to all arguments to a problem and then making your mind up.
With Christmas next week and stress levels being so high, tempers will flare but there are plenty of triggers so just breathe through your anger and even resentment. Just remember that the combination of the Solstice and the Full Moon tomorrow is all about transformation and will shake things up.
However like lunar energy, this will affect people at different levels. Some will feel very grounded and magical, others highly unsettled. This is because we are all individuals on different places on the path so it cannot be the same for everyone. It also depends on how open we are to change. The more open – the easier and those who fight against it will have a harder time.
Many of us felt incredibly lethargic about two weeks ago and very thirsty too! This is because the energy was building up rapidly and our body were slow to adjust.
Another thing to note is that while I said for some, progress will be slow over the next few weeks, others may find themselves making very sudden decisions about career or business! You may have been grappling for an idea or thought for a while now, procrastinating and fearing it but now it will come to you in a snap! It will all make sense in your mind and the decision will be an easy one to make. Expect some ruffled feathers though. Do remember that new beginnings are slightly challenging as you have to figure things out as you go along. It is a path not yet known.
Now the last Full Moon of 2018 comes to us on Dec 22nd. This is in the Cancer which is a water sign which means there is an emphasis on emotions and communications. A few days before Christmas with travel chaos, pressure to get everything right and demands put on us, there is no doubt stress is HUGE. So it is important to find ways to keep calm and breathe as much as possible before you communicate otherwise it will be laden with your stress.
There is divine female energy associated with both the sign and the Moon. You will want to protect those close to you, almost like a female tiger. Feelings to do with love, nurturing and companionship will be high. Time to protect that fragile heart of yours and also be compassionate. I feel I need to speak to those who have suffered abuse or have deep resentment in their hearts right now. Forgiveness is not a weakness. It is not a sign that you have lost. Forgiveness is freedom. This will be a very emotionally charged time so do take care of yourselves.
Remember everything you do these next few days will shape the coming year. We can only move forward if we let go of the past.
21.12.18 in numerology is a number 8 day. This is a reminder about BALANCE – power and emotions. We need a balance with both so make sure you don’t give your power out to other people and equally don’t hog it either! Eight is also known as Karma – you reap what you sow! If you put in the hard work then you will be busy enjoying your rewards next year. This is a number that is associated with abundance so keep your thought positive!
Imagine you have an extra-large suitcase and next to it are rows of people who have been in your life so far. On another row is are heavy bricks filled with pain, anger, tears and resentment. Next to them are clouds of laughter, happiness, happy memories and love.
Now visualise that you fill up the bag with people and the bricks plus a tiny percentage of the clouds. Your bag will be HEAVY! Now imagine that you have to drag that bag around for the rest of your life. Sounds arduous doesn’t it? Well it certainly is but we humans do this to ourselves sometimes. We do have a choice even at heart breaking moments on how we deal with life. The person who filled the bag with clouds and just a handful of significant people would have only needed a cabin bag and it would have been extremely light.
Focus on the LIGHT. It won’t hold you back!
THREE THINGS TO DO BETWEEN NOW AND SATURDAY
- Clean the house, get some fresh flowers in and smudge the house with sage
- Put your crystals out to reenergise in the moon light
- Write down your wish list and the things you want to let go of. Burn on the 22nd
