I’m so grateful we made it. Our 2020, in its spectrum of ludicrous to loving is both overwhelming while raising relevancy in our relations to each other and our home.
Finding myself having had both positive and negative aspects of rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience, this year has been made do-able because I engage in my daily practice. When a daily practice is created and developed, it astounds in how its perfection is beautifully humbling. My path leads to a point of removing the last petals of rose coloured glasses. In turn highlighting much of my list above and thankfully leaning into more positive outcomes. If you need, in a ratio of 3:1.
On our path teachings and depth, remind of the benefit of learning as an ongoing component in life. Respecting tradition, ongoing learning supports a highlight to new understanding and its ability to serve the present moment. A daily practice within our selves or our spaces, en-lightens. If you consider this as a lightening within you may find yourself on the inside of feeling connected. These practices, Feng Shui, Astrology, Geobiology, Yoga and Meditation are traditions aiding development in enlightenment, with great success.
Success can come in the forms of; rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience. I hope for your release of 2020, you find more of these, peace and much love.
As the end of 2020 has a couple of retrogrades happening here are some good ideas to realize the opportunity to review what you have been working on with projects and goals, utilising time to ask: Is there new data? Does any tweaking need to happen? Is your goal the same? Where am I including time to restore myself?
As you slow down into the retrogrades, feelings can include fatigue, indifference, cravings, irritability and lack of appetite. In support of addressing these feelings to maintain a positive emotional and mental perspective, remember to keep exercise scheduled regularly, to drink water, to stretch out of long held postures; for example sitting at your desk working on the computer, opening up the front of the body if you drive a vehicle for a living, or laying on the floor with hips even and placing legs up and over the couch to invert, if you work on your feet. All of these are simple additions into your day beginning or end that help to reset the body, keep the mind open and the heart light.
To compose energy on the go, breath exercises are great, portable and easy to adapt to available time. Key tip, a full round is one full deep breath in, a pause, a slow complete breath out, and another pause. Repeat a full cycle on its own if time is short and for a few full rounds if you have more available.
It is recommended within the last few months of 2020, not to push. Utilise rhythm to have some ease and flow to any aspect of tweaking, critical assessment of data and viewing goals. We really step into function over form in this section of the year. It’s got to work before we address how it looks.
In our pursuit of goals, from hitting targets to finding a new gig, gratitude frames real information, grounds us and serves in all aspects of a retrograde. As we bring together a calm, clear focus we are able to build the path ahead. Retrogrades help us to step forward with clarity, free of excess stagnant energy and with gratitude.
888 Activities that support a healthy you at any time in retrogrades:
Leave some open spaces in the room/office/reception/kitchen.
Add colour. Auspicious colours in 2020 are blue and green. Less of yellow and brown tones till February 2021.
Clear labels in storage areas. Keep it tidy.
As we always recommend at 888, eat seasonally and as fresh as you’re able. The better you eat, the clearer your body functions. Being in a position to properly code your food as fuel can reduce cravings, support proper rest and aids mental agility. Our expression from ourselves and in our spaces, creates a vitality that reassures and makes life worth living.
In our 888 Meditation Moment this week, it is wise to consider, how major shifts can create a new foundation for how we behave and who we like to hang out with, even how we hang out.
This mantra centres within us, for a love base around how we treat ourselves, how we speak to ourselves and by extension to others. Meditation is wonderful for restoring our energies as well as giving us access to our portable safe spaces. This is a valuable tool. It supports all levels of our bodies, our outlook, our embodiment of life. For me its vital to keep my soul acknowledged for me to hear my calling to endeavour to embody life. For this mantra, crystals in hand can include, clear quartz, kyanite, sodalite, turquoise and lapis. This weekend is a good time to ground crystals like hematite, tourmaline, jet, smoky quartz, lepidolite and emerald. If you’re looking to add an essential oil these are good suggestions, considering aspects of new thoughts, courage and being pro active; jasmine, galbanum, cedar wood, chamomile or lemongrass.
Enjoy giving yourself some support, no matter how the week has been. Safe Passage.
In our cards for today and into the end of the week, we are looking at Eagle in regards to strength and Peahen regarding nurturing.
When we meditate on strength let’s consider that true strength is displayed in the recovery process, not the initial action. Ongoing and taking strength into your day to day is what develops your relationship to yourself and through extension into your community.
Considering nurturing, your actions display the tone you wish to be treated with. If we combine these two aspects of ourselves, how can we utilise this to build, recover and help others? Perhaps right now it is good to start within, to clarify, gain stillness and to then engage. From kids, to colleagues, if this is in your tool box, what can you create?
For our full moon this month, on December 12 at 4.12pm AEDST, it would be wise to consider finalising, completing and consolidating what you have been working on and towards.
As tensions build to create adjustments based on behaviour, karma and adjustments being made, keep in mind being patient, renewed respect and commitment for your goals. This moon brings energies of clearly seeing relationship dynamics that are negative & unhealthy creating disharmony. There will be uncomfortable and unpredictable tensions to tip for karmic balance to restore.
There are karmic consequences for manipulating, guilt tripping and subversive tactics. If you can meditate or have subconscious awareness, it will decrease the emotional and energy drain, as well as over coming obstacles supporting impartial and balanced views, especially around intimate relationships. Be aware of feelings of jealousy, possessiveness, infatuation, spying, even falling for negative or dangerous people as instant attraction has active potential. Give openly with no catches or hidden agendas in support of calling in what you desire.
Call in patience and determination as we are in a phase of lesser resources and time, for extra responsibilities that can land unexpectedly. Forcing us to look at what is not working. Learn what to let go of, as loss, hardship and disappointment come in, if its broken fix it or release it. With critical points creating events to restore balance, especially around relationships, can look like an argument to affairs, internal imbalance around body image and self love. As cravings rise keep in mind its best not to over indulge, as actions have karmic repercussions right now. Cultivate thoughts around mothers here, to help resolve overall during this time.
Emotions heightened are emotional coldness, guilt, fear, heavy work load, emotional vulnerabilities, personal and professional imbalance, your needs and the need of others and imbalances. Self control is tested as is patience, dedication, trust, loyalty, forgiveness however they can if addressed, create a renewed commitment and restoration.
Female warrior energy is amplified for your needs right now, bringing courage, energy, renowned and eminent friends, fighting spirit, strategic talents, quick decision making, advance and success. Particularly on the 12th, be aware of aggressiveness, belligerence, tendency to fight futile or lost causes and danger of sudden dishonour. Supporting female energies brings in, good fortune, assertiveness, a mighty tongue, be aware to men this can appear as nasty and bad tempered aggression. Stay as grounded as possible.
Overall what we are working on is our perspectives around being strong, dignified, self controlled, constancy and inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety, danger of treachery and prosperity in trade especially by voyaging national or internationally. These aspects all relate to our nourishment, hence the mother aspects to be considered.
There is luck in hunting, wealth, military prowess, traitors and deserters, revolts, borders and boundaries disputes, positive outcomes in regards to construction, think a good time to sell your property, development etc. We are addressing our structural culture as a people, in regards to male dominance, patriarchal systems, power and success from forethought and strategy to rapid moving conditions. Adaptability is a female base in energy, strength with flexibility, calm considerations, speaking from truth with compassion, allowing time required for actual change and dealing with the uncomfortable. These are shifting to karmic balance, keep it clean to keep your good karma and fortune in play.
Keep it fluid, light stepping, a little goes a long way. Much love for your full moon.
