Avoidance is not a boundary

Screen Shot 2019-05-04 at 12.05.51 AM

 

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.

Consciousness has no hierarchy

 

 

We are all these Sunflowers. We all have a physical manifestation that we move through the world with, and yet, there’s also a subtle vibration pouring from each of us at every moment. 

 

THERE IS NO LADDER OF HIERARCHY IN CONSCIOUSNESS.

 

The psychic airs are so thick and heavy right now. It can feel so hard to push through the fear and sense of impending doom, wherever in the world we are. The more I sit in this heaviness, the more I’m drawn toward understanding consciousness. Not with the mind or intellect, in being.

 

Uranus in Taurus is offering us just this. Uranus is an agitator, an awakener, forever pushing us toward freedom. In this Taurus case, we’re being given the opportunity to free ourselves from habituation, from the limitation of the body and being tied to material concerns. That doesn’t mean we check out, stop giving a shit, stop wearing clothes and give away all our money (though you can if that’s your jam.)

 

It means something different for everyone, but the vehicle that gets us there is very simple: listen to your own needs, your own inner dialogue and have boundaries that shield you from being saturated by the outside noise. Make space for your divine sound to pour forth and change this dominant, fear-based narrative. 

 

Taurus gets comfortable. It loves a groove…but grooves become ruts which become trenches that we find hard to dig ourselves out of. We’re all being uprooted. We’re all re-evaluating our worth and what we invest time, energy and money into. It doesn’t make sense that the structures that support us also undermine us. This change is destabilizing and necessary. Look to what you’re clinging to and what’s being challenged to change.

 

The noise in the world, on social media is SO. LOUD. It doesn’t matter if it’s from the left or the right, red or blue, Liberal – National – Labour – everyone’s yelling. Make space for your Sunflower sound. Plug in and let it out.

Mutable Magic – the changing of seasons

MUTABLE MAGIC

Screen Shot 2018-09-11 at 5.01.30 PM

The mutable signs ~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ~ all represent the energy of the changing seasons.

There’s been an irritability in the air. Not of the Mars variety where we could blow our top. It’s based in the mutable energy of change that doesn’t let us settle. 

Mutable signs remind us that change is necessary. Stagnation is not an option and remaining in the past lacks vitality. In such unpredictable and often volatile times, we seek the security of things unchanging. Change represents chaos, and chaos reminds us that we don’t have control. But chaos is from where life emerges. It’s the void that contains the all; where we come from and to where we all return.

Each Mutable sign follows a Fixed sign. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) represent the peak of a season. There is no denying in February that we’re in the depths of Winter in the Nth Hemisphere – and the height of Summer in the South. 

Fixed energy is sure and stable. It’s the foundation stones upon which we build life. Mutable signs, however, transition us from this stability, simultaneously aware of what it’s emerging from and heading toward. Moving, changing, gathering information, mutability is never still, never stagnant. Always curious and of service.

Mutable signs gather the information we need to transition to the peak of our potential. They are the gate keepers to the Solstice and Equinox. They are the changing of the guard from one season to another. It is both receptive and dynamic.

A snake sheds its skin before it emerges anew. The energy of change can be uncomfortable because we can’t rest and we have no guarantee of what’s to come. We have to lean into trust and roll with the energy of now. 

This particular mutable season is within the veil of a Venus Retrograde cycle. The energy of change is more potent because we’re being asked to look at what we’re going to leave behind in the Underworld. We will take a Phoenix journey down and through Scorpio’s lair. If you’re struggling against the winds of change right now, ask yourself what you’re holding onto and why. What is lingering from your past that’s draining your vitality?

There is endurance to mutable energy. It has the ability to adapt. To bend and not break. Take this tree wisdom with you though the Underwolrld. We’re all going together. No one is spared.

When you board a cross~country train while Mercury’s retrograde wearing a Mercury~Gemini shirt & the train leaves 7 HOURS late & your seat is facing backwards…so you’re literally retrograding through retrograde season…& then you look out the other window & the universe paints your thoughts in letters on the neighbouring train.

Touch the Earth

Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 11.04.57 PM

 

Of all the adventures I’ve dragged my Sagittarian ass through, this trip is up there with my faves!

The dry heat of the desert, the genuineness of folks in Denver, the stories the Earth shares in Navajo Nation lands…& the welcome relief these Utah salt flats were after feeling gay-unsafe in Wyoming. 🙌🏼💓 Thinking of you #matthewshepard 🔥♐️🔥 .
As we welcome the Sun into Leo today, this Mars Retrograde is only gunna get hotter & dryer. If you feel like yr going to loose yr shit or bite the hook this month, touch the Earth & ground yourself.
Leo is about coming back into our most authentic expression of ourselves, without the need of external validation…but remember that fire is too hot to touch. Make choices that make you proud.

Hermit life

Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 7.16.48 PM

 

Hi frenz 👋🏼
Here I am in my hermit cave, smelling the roses & feeling out the shifts & changes in the cosmic weathers. #cantturnitoff 🌀

 
There’s a lot going on! I’m seeing & feeling the pain that’s present & surfacing for folks, both personally & collectively…& there isn’t one answer or one remedy.
🌪

 
Good news is: we are amidst great opportunity for change & rearrangement. Bad news is it’s not a sprint race – it’s more like a marathon. Pace yourself, have snacks for the trip, keep hydrated & just. keep. going. No doubt you’re going to fuck things up along the way. Keep offering compassion & accountability in equal doses to yourself & those yr with.
🤜🏼💖🤛🏼

 
I’m writing in my hermit time, & would also love to hear from you as to what’s going on & what you might like to hear about, astro-post wise.
💫✍🏼

 
Hit me up with which way the wind is blowing for you & lez walk through this together.

The eclipse portal

🌕🌑🌕

We’re walking through that space-time between eclipses.

.
The stirring is real & the undertow is strong. What are you leaving behind & what are you walking towards? 🦋

.
Eclipses ask us to let shit go to allow space for what represents authenticity. It’s not always easy & it’s often not smooth. Walking through the portal from one eclipse to the other takes courage to remain clear & true. It’s the razors edge.
