This week we’re in the Shadow Phase of our next Mercury Retrograde* cycle.  For some über knowledgeable (and extremely sensible) detailed information, I recommend that before Thursday arrives, you all go see what Sarah has to say.

*I am totally going to re-read this one.

             As far as what we’re hearing about today, it’s pretty damn timely.  My dreams were broken up between personal messages (release, release, release dammit!) and the more public images that need to be shared.

It’s a complicated puzzle.

             And, it is also confusing as hell.  We are handed, like, a scrap of the finished picture, some tattered edges of the box this mess came in, and not even half of all the pieces needed to get a full view of what the fuck is going on.

             Of course, as with ALL of Life’s lessons, if we slooooooow dowwwwwwwn, breathe, and relax, everything will simply fall in to place on its own.  Sadly, we (me!) are often too impatient.  And think we know better.

             We do not.  Now, if we stop, and just listen, instead of trying to force the puzzle to be the way WE want it, then, we’ll be fine.  But, ya know, it’s complicated.

             In returning to our regular rotation around the card altar this afternoon, we received a wonderful guide to help us in situational solving.

“Ready, Set, Go!

Now is the perfect moment to dive in and embrace your heart’s desire.

Even though you might not feel entirely ready, this card says that there’s no better time than the present to dive into your future.   You are advised to take both big and small steps to move in the direction of your dreams.

Push aside everything unrelated to your life’s mission.  Adjust your schedule so that the bulk of your time relates to your priorities and goals.  Delegate tasks to other people, or hire someone to assist you.  Your responsibilities will still be met, you’ll be happier, you’ll enjoy greater self-esteem, and you will attract more abundance in the long run – if you jump in and follow you heart.”

             Focus and Trust, such basic concepts, which can be so difficult to manage.  Using this fun image as our jumping off point though (and remembering not to speed), I think we can all do just that, complicated or not.

Personally, from me to Doreen:

 seriously, WTF?!  If I could afford to HIRE someone, I wouldn’t HAVE these problems!

Enjoy True Intimacy.

             Accompanied by the following:

“A ‘heart connection  with another person is one of life’s great pleasures.  It is the gift of true intimacy that each of you gives to the other – and it is true of every type of relationship, be it family, friendship, or romantic.

We angels share this sort of bond with you, even if you are unaware of our presence in your life.  We’re intimately connected with all your emotions, thoughts, and actions.  Because we cherish you unconditionally, our love for you never wavers.  At each moment, it’s as steady and strong as at the next

Seek out moments of true intimacy with another person (or with us).  Begin this connection by looking into each other’s eyes and speaking the truth that you feel in your heart.  Feel the elevated energy that comes from speaking from a place of truth.  That is heart connection – true intimacy.”

             I adore the idea of exchanging energy without having the pressure of that bullshit, made-up, frilly red-hearts-and-flowers fiction.  (Once you DO feel this, your life will never be the same.  Not even kidding.)

“Thought For The Month:

I speak from my heart, and I allow myself to say the truth that I feel.  

I open myself up to hearing and feeling truth.  

I let myself experience a deep connection to another person.”

  1. “And, it is also confusing as hell. We are handed, like, a scrap of the finished picture, some tattered edges of the box this mess came in, and not even half of all the pieces needed to get a full view of what the fuck is going on.” LUUUUVE this imagery!!!

    And, hell yes, if I could afford to hire someone too!!! *rolls eyes*

    Mercury again?! groooooaaannnn…

    I’m finding it not to be as bad, now that I see it from another angle.
    (Remind me I said this, in a week.)

  2. Hearts and flowers and chocolate are nice, but not when they are simply a gesture made on an annual, made-up holiday where people feel pressured to behave a certain way for that day.

    Yep,that’s part of my problem with it.

  3. We are going to a Holly Neer concert on February 14. It just happens to be the Friday night she is in town. I remember one year buying two rose bushes for the Mrs. in mid-February…she liked those better than cut flowers in a vase. I have more or less bought her an impact driver for this year, even though she got it early to build some raised garden beds.

    I have also been falling behind in my reading of posts and commenting on them. How does one’s twitter account get hacked? Been doing better with the meditation time, however…

    1. I don’t know how any of this works so I can’t tell you how hackers do what they do. All I know is that it seems everyone gets “compromised” at some point or another. It’s mostly just a shit-ton of ads.
