Yep. It’s going around.
The energies are really intense right now, and many things are boiling over, melting down, or erupting. Some days it feels like energetic ping-pong or pinball. You may find that your conversations and interactions with others feel more challenging right now, or some things in your life just don’t seem to be making sense or ‘clicking into place’.
The other day, someone said they feel as though they're in a different dimension from everyone else they work with: no one seems to be speaking the same language and no one understands each other. Someone else said they've had the same meeting three weeks in a row, with the same conversations and no actual outcome or resolution, except for an increase in everyone's frustration levels.
In our improv group last night, our coach said it was as if we were all on different planets - even though we were in the same room, playing the same games and doing the same exercises as the previous week.
So what's up with all of this?
There is a major energetic realignment going on right now, and we have a choice in each moment. We can allow, flow and take the necessary actions we’re being guided to take (when we're guided to take them). Or, we can get really frustrated because it feels confusing and not everything seems to make sense.
And, astrologically speaking, there’s some intense stuff going on too: the Full Moon was on December 6th, and Saturn is transitioning out of Scorpio on December 23rd. The Full Moon was about healing and transmuting our old wounds (emotional and spiritual), becoming aware and awakening rather than remaining stuck and resistant to change, and bringing consciousness and intention to our choices going forward.
The upcoming transition in Saturn is an opportunity to complete the lessons we learned over the past three years (since October 5th, 2012), specifically lessons about maturity and quality of our thoughts/deeds/actions. The heavy energy of Saturn in Scorpio will be released when Saturn enters Sagittarius on December 24th, and a renewed sense of enthusiasm and possibility will emerge. Whew! And yay!
As I wrote in my December Inspired Guidance newsletter (“Love, Comfort, & Joy!”), the energies right now are powerful and moving quickly. Feelings and emotions can be all over the place. And we are being strongly encouraged to continue to release anything that is no longer serves us or isn't optimal for us – including thoughts, habits, behaviors, actions, physical and emotional clutter, and even jobs and relationships.
Melting Down, Washing Away
Something, someone, or some situation that seemed like a perfect fit no longer seems to make any sense, and misunderstandings are popping up everywhere. We’re being forced to release whatever is no longer in our highest good at a very fast pace, or in very intense and tumultuous ways. (Kind of as if the Kali, the ultimate get-things-done goddess, had just stepped in and set things alight or washed them away!) The old must be released so that the new can be received.
Recently I mentioned to a wise, intuitive, and Universally-connected friend that the energies had been super-intense lately, and I was releasing stuff (physical, emotional and behavioral), and at the same time, connecting with new like-spirited people. Her response: it’s like ‘purification on steroids’ right now. Wow! So true!
Personally, I feel like I’m being emptied out completely, in order to be filled with something else…or being melted down to be re-formed and become what I’m meant to be.
There are opportunities for us to reevaluate all areas of our lives, starting with the places where we’re feeling the most pressure. There are opportunities for us to step back, look at the bigger picture, and to ask ourselves:
- If I allow and go with the flow, can I trust that there is a beautiful outcome on the other side of it?
- Can I trust that things are being realigned and re-organize for my highest good?
- Could I see how, perhaps, it's time for the situation to change, morph, or if evolve into something else?
- Can I identify areas where I've been resisting change?
- Could I consider allowing something else, or someone else, to come into my life?
The more we embrace the unknown, the easier all of this confusion and transformation is. All of this change, this sense of exploding or breaking down, is preparing us for the energies of 2015. It's preparing us to become who were meant to be.
It's much easier to become who we are meant to be, who we’re born to be, when we aren't stuck in the past or hanging onto the past. It's much easier to move forward when we aren't encumbered with things situations and relationships but no longer are in our highest good.
And just because situations or relationships are dissolving or shifting, it doesn't mean that we have failed…the important thing is, did we learn what we needed to about ourselves, and the Universe, from these experiences, situations and relationships?
The learning, growing and evolving is the most important part - it's what we're here for, it's what we came here to do.
I encourage you - and I keep reminding myself - to embrace the current energies, and to trust that there is much magnificent that will come out of this time of change, loss, transition, and transformation.
