Energetically speaking, there’s a shit-ton going on right now. (And yes, that’s a professional if not technical term.) Pluto, Mercury, the moon, and (depending on where you live) tomorrow’s Equinox.
All of that, to those of us Highly Sensitive types (plus whatever “regular” living chaos we’re in), can add up to some stressy-ness and edgy emotions.
And that calls for Self-Care of the most major kind. (As well as MORE releasing.) Perfect message then, for what arrived today.
Yours – Mine
As I read through the Four Agreements (it’s slow going, I really want to absorb it all), I see the benefits of stepping away from our suffering even more clearly.
Your situations are your situations, my situations are my situations. The same goes for how we feel and how we react. I can’t be responsible for your reaction, just as you can’t be responsible for mine.
Can we approach life with Truth and lovingkindness so as to mitigate as much harm as possible? Absolutely! In fact, it’s recommended.
We just can’t get hung up on who else feels what about everything. WE are the focus of our own journey. Sure, it’s nice to have fellow adventures along for the ride. Our main responsibility though, is our own sacred selves.
On our card altar right now we’re going out into the future (while staying firmly planted in the now), manifesting that next chapter. My chapter. And your chapter.
Two of Wands
Remember how Staves, Wands, Clubs are all about energy? Like what we started this conversation with. Energy. The power of life which rolls within and around us all.
That which makes us all connected. The very essence of who and what we are. The spark of creation and wave of power.
And here, in its truest form of duality, balance, and those first steps into “making” something out of nothing. In this illustration, our character gazes out upon the possibilities of All.
We are most magickal when we are in sync with the Universe and all of Nature. Here is the validation of our efforts. We can see, as this individual does, that there is a future. We have learned from our past, as we embrace our present.
This present moment, this is the gift of intentional living. Your gift. My gift.
