29 Jul ORACLE SESSIONS Weekly Forecast | July 28th – August 3rd, 2019
7/29 As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive and challenging, the ultimate result is usually refreshing in some way. Consider the energy that thickens, gathering for a severe thunderstorm, then releasing buckets of rain, for hours. You sleep deeply and awaken to a bright sunny morning with birds chirping unusually loud outside your window. That’s exactly what is happening here. This activation is the necessary challenge that gets your attention that something better is available, if you’re willing to improvise and think on your feet. If you’ve been unusually restricted in some way, you may feel restless. Rather than being reactive to the unexpected shift (within or without), it’s best to take a pause for the cause, step back and try to gain some perspective so you can consciously respond, instead of react. Remember to be present: too far in the past can be depressing and too far into the future can cause unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, be under the sky, invite clarity about the next step and trust your gut – your natural god-given instincts are what is needed for this one. This energy, while sometimes uncomfortable and often sudden, is very necessary to disrupt any illusions/delusions you may be holding on to. It’s time to express your Self in all new ways. With today’s challenging aspect between the Sun and Uranus, there is some uneasiness in the air. Pay attention today for any feelings of nervousness, fear, or uncertainty that creeps into your consciousness. If so, catch them, and quickly remind yourself that they are just that – illusions. The planet Uranus is challenging us today as well, with its unpredictable nature. We might feel a desire to retreat and disconnect from everyone around us, without any logical explanation for it. We may feel that we are without clarity on what we really want or what direction to take. Today, it is important to not permit doubtful feelings to gain control and cause you to take actions that you will regret later. The best place to operate from is a place of certainty, knowing that Great Spirit is with us, guiding us, and protecting us. Without fear, we are able to make the highest decisions and choices that are based on love, abundance, and kindness for all humanity.
7/30 We are still in a shadow period – however, while it may not always feel like it – this is imperative to your own growth and healing. This retrograde is shining yet another light on the value of self-care and self-love, as it relates to communication and self-expression. If we are not clear about our personal needs and desires, it makes it really difficult to attract the good things in life. I encourage you to use the rest of August to dig into how you really feel and what you really think about some issues that are close to your heart. We can use this slow reversal to reconnect internally, so we navigate externally with more ease and grace. We have this breather, right as we plant these new moon seeds, that will support us when we get to the Harvest. With today’s movement of the Moon into the sign of Leo, it joins the Sun and Venus which are also in Leo. We have a boost of fiery and passionate energy on the inside and outside. The Sun represents our expression. The Moon represents our emotions, while Venus represents our pleasures and romances. All three planets are enjoying the warmth of Leo. However, like every sign, Leo brings with it blessings and challenges. Today, avoid drama, pride, and thinking you have all the answers to all the questions of life. Instead, utilize the available confident and passionate energy to share and support everyone around you. Here are examples of positive actions that you can engage in today that are aligned with the cosmic energy: Make others laugh. Transform someone’s negative situation by helping them see it in a brighter light. Be the one to uplift the mood of everyone in your environment. Live large, take others out to a cup of coffee, lunch, or any other fun outing. Within all of us is an endless, sharing force of energy. Today’s cosmic atmosphere helps us to see that and act upon it. Being a force of sharing, after all, benefits the giver even more than the receiver.
7/31 Today brings in the Leo Super/New Moon and this is a perfect time to plant seeds and walk by faith. This new moon will help initiate the new in a clean, positive, and hopefully fun way! It may be time to Lighten UP! Get creative, have some fun! Make time & space to dig into anything that is weighing heavily on you and find a NEW way to express it. If your focus is on self-care, self-love, and self-worth – and how you define that for yourself – it may also allow you some customized opportunities to change your thinking in some way. The world is shifting at such a rapid pace, it’s more imperative than ever to know your own *Heart*. Many of us have lived our lives guided by “survival” rather than what is truly in our hearts. And we have discovered, either directly or from observing others, how this can backfire. Consider that anything you do, whether for yourself or the world, needs to be heart-centered and rooted in *love* (Leo’s domain) – that love is that which endures, and ultimately succeeds. When we do things with genuine enthusiasm ~ humble and pure ~ we can literally Inspire, Awaken and Uplift others and that creates a certain magnetism that creates an energetic flow. The purest form of leadership is to lead by example, so deepen your connection to your own Heart, share your Light (without attachment) but simply for the joy of sharing and that will encourage others to shine theirs as well. The sign of Cancer is very much connected and affected by the past. Memories, childhood, parents, and experiences from the past can take an important role in the Cancerian’s life and decision making. The past can be a great teacher and impetus to help us recognize aspects of ourselves that we would like to transform. But, when the past is a constant painful reminder of all of our negative experiences, mistakes, or flaws, it can become a limiting force for our spiritual growth and transformation. Today, there is a face-off with the Moon, the karmic planets of Saturn and Pluto, and the south node. This is challenging, as it will remind us of our past wounds and difficulties. Today, we need to rise above our past. Do not allow the past to haunt you or overwhelm you in any nonconstructive way. Make an effort to visualize yourself as who you are today, and all you will become in the future. Understand you are no longer who you were in the past. You are now stronger and wiser because of it. The past is now just a stepping stone for your life today. You can never go backwards, only forwards and closer to your perfection.
8/1 With today’s challenging aspect of Venus, in Leo, and Uranus, in Taurus, we should expect some type of shake up. Uranus is always here to rock the boat. Since it is in Taurus right now, and forming a challenging aspect with Venus, the unexpected can appear in our romances and/ or our material possessions. It is never a good idea to go rebel or fight against the typical Uranus influences. It represents for us a positive wake-up call, a blessing in disguise. It is a reminder for us to stay open minded and navigate willingly through change and anything unexpected. Our test is always in how we react. Are we getting upset? Are we frantically trying to shift things back to “normal” and what we are used to? Or, are we are eager to discover the lesson inherent in the new situation? Are we willing to adapt to any unpredictable change knowing that it is sent from Great Spirit for our best interest? Today might be a challenge to flow with the energy, but at least let us not fight against it. Let us be open to understanding that nothing is random, and whatever that is appearing before us, today or any day, has a hidden gift and blessing waiting for us to discover. The best advice would be to keep your head down and stay on track. Let the wind of change swirl around you — not through you. Embracing change, staying open, and being flexible are valuable qualities to possess. However, today’s energy is more on the irritating side; therefore, we should pay attention not to allow any irritation or dissatisfaction to creep into our psyches and, ultimately, influence our perception to what seems to be, at first, an unpleasant surprise. Take a day or two before you make a final decision on any changes that might appear today. Allow yourself to develop a greater and more spiritual point of view and perspective. Allow yourself the time to grow open to new ideas and circumstances. We often are afraid of change, but it usually gifts us with the most fulfillment in the end. In life, the very things we need are not always what we want or even know we want.
8/2 Venus rules your values and priorities and an activation with Uranus signifies something sudden and seemingly out-of-the-blue. Of course, this isn’t true, but it can feel that way. The truth is, it is time to do something different where your love, finances or relationships are concerned. Making a conscious effort to do things in a completely new way will be rewarded with a lesson and a blessing you would’ve never considered. Due to these new revelations happening within you, the immediate response will come from those closest to you. If you’re in relationships (personal or professional) that have reached a point where they have to change or end, this is a good time to try to discuss it openly and with as much detachment and objectivity as possible. This energy can provoke the need for excitement or stimulation in your relationships, giving you the urge to shake things up. Be aware and mindful of others’ feelings too because they may not be in the mood for such sudden change. Another expression of this energy is to get things on the table; it’s a great time to really discuss things and come to an agreement or compromise. Ultimately, this is a test of your flexibility in relationships. The more inflexible or attached to status quo that you are, then the more disruptive this energy can be. The more willing you are to change within and do things differently without, the more productive and joyful you will be.
8/3 After a long period of Mercury in retrograde, Mercury is finally turning direct again! This change allows communications to, at last, flow much more smoothly. It signifies a period when clarity replaces confusion. It is an ideal time to revisit those projects you did not fulfill or goals you did not accomplish due to doubt or lack of clarity. Now is the time to speak and deliver strong and pure messages. It is also the time to be able to better understand others, as well. The fog of Mercury in retrograde is now cleared away. The sky is clear and open for all types of communications and connections. Without obstacles, we stand the greatest chance for success. With clear skies, we can be sure there is smooth sailing ahead. It is in knowing when the universe’s energy is favorable that we are then able to place our very best foot forward.
Overview: This week the energy may feel a little hectic and challenging. I know! I know! The energy has been so off and wonky that I was truly hoping to provide better news. However, the wonderful insight and opportunity we have this week is to take a pause. Take time out and just be. It’s time to disconnect from the world a bit and traverse inwards. This is a week of stepping back and taking an objective look at our lives with clarity, curiosity, and a clear goal and understanding of what we want to accomplish – and to get real with ourselves about the parts of our lives that still need attention and need to heal. The good news is that at the end of the week we will be transitioning into some faster paced energies – so this week allots us a time to begin getting our outlines created and objectives identified. This is a strong week to lean into faith and to trust that EVERYTHING that is happening – is happening in our favor. Even when it doesn’t look or feel that way. Remember, we have a very limited perspective and have no way to witness all that lies ahead and is in store for our highest and greatest good. This is the week to focus on your FAITH and TRUSTING in the unseen.
