Empaths and Saturn’s Boundaries

As the Moon wanes & passes through Pisces today and tomorrow, it’s possible  you’ll be visited by the ghost of despair present. Pisces feels eeeeeeverything – the suffering, the loss, the depth of emotion. There’s no separation between the pain ‘out there’ & what is experienced personally.

Knowing this, it’s a great time to check in on your own boundaries: how much time are you spending online & are you having a balanced mix of news & kittens? If you’re an empath, are you getting enough time to recharge? Are you clear about where your limit is, now & everyday?

The shit that’s hitting the fan right now is bigger than we know. We’re only getting a slice of the pie. After we’ve seen the Earth replenish itself in our absence, Governments bail out Corporations & not people, & random strangers sharing support in abundance…do you really think we’ll go back to life as it was? No chance. Impossible.

Saturn is changing signs as we speak / scroll / virtual hangout. When we wake up tomorrow it will be in new clothes with an Aquarian agenda.

Aquarius exists in group consciousness. Aware that the group (be it society, humanity, a species) is a compilation of individuals, it desires to stand out from the crowd, to be individual amongst the herd. 

Every single one of us is being called to step up into what makes us unique. What are you here to offer? In acknowledging this, your boundaries are more easily defined. If you’re an empath, how useful are you if you’re constantly drained & not replenishing? If you’re a front line activist how useful are you if you’re not listening for the signs of burn out? 

Boundaries are not a hard wall that protect us from experiencing bad things. They are points in our awareness that signal our limits, our worth & capacity. They are each of our responsibility. What is unfolding right now is a universal long haul trucker move. Pace yourself. Know your limits and respect them so that when you’re called, you’re ready!

Scorpio depths are not the periphery

Anyone else feel like they finally understand what it’s like to be a Scorpio 24/7? This Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (leading us toward the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in January😳) is Scorpio Season on full blast! Whoooooweeee!

Scorpio Season Mercury retrograde 2019

The effects might not be visible on the periphery, but so much is stirring inside, below the surface.

It’s not ‘normal’ for us to be existing with constant grief, over stimulation & anxiety, & no one is spared right now. Mercury retrograde cycles are great opportunities for us to go off line, spending less time in the loop of scrolling & more time listening to what’s asking for our attention.

Mercury rules communication, & listening is just as valid as output. Listen to your body, chew your food, watch your breathing & trust those who love you that can see your blind spots. Boundaries are there for self care!

For the duration of this Mercury Rx cycle I’m offering astrological updates on how to release what is asking to be detoxed, Scorpio style.

Avoidance is not a boundary

Lessons learnt in the recent Mercury Retrograde cycle in Pisces…& lez be real, whenever we encounter gaslighting & ghosting on the daily. Avoidance leaves situations open to misinterpretation & energetic attachments that drain our energy.

Boundaries don’t have to be a hard wall, keeping out challenges that can ultimately be rewarding. They are flags of freedom, stating to all parties where we draw a line in the sand. They let us know respectful parameters & also alert us when someone continually crosses them.

Hard conversations are never easy, but they’re well worth it when you value the relationships you’re growing or moving away from.
