Retrograde Stepping 2020 Style

Taking the time to have ordered aware thoughts.

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:

  • Remove clutter.
  • 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.
  • Smudge.
  • 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.

Safe passage.

So Good for Right Now

Any one of these ingredients are, so good right now. They smell and taste delicious. Our food is the most immediate option for fortifying our presence. Be conscious of how you fuel your system. Is it good right now?

A simple addition to any routine, is to choose any one of these ingredients and add it into current moments. If you like tea, lemon, fennel seeds, lime, lavender in an infuser will aid your immune system, nervous system and cleanse organs. If you don’t drink a lot of tea, consider which ingredient, except carrot, would you like to smell in a cup of warm water on your bedside table as you settle to sleep? Allowing the cup to cool overnight and in the morning, can be poured into composte or the garden bed. If you would like to combine a few ingredients, a pot of water on the stove with, for example, bay leaves, fennel and lemon smells lovely extending through the house in aid of restoring appetite, stamina, settling the nerves and supporting respiratory health. If you have a few dollars, fresh twigs from the tree and lavender flowers can be a lovely welcome home.

Of course these can be added to meals, and I speak especially of carrot, although the oil, if you have access is delicious on the skin. Regenerative and good for skin health, loaded with anti oxidants, carrot oil can be added to your moisturiser for an at home pamper session. Be aware of taking a beat before going into the sun with this oil. Let it fully absorb into the skin. Almond oil is a good base for some drops of carrot oil. Patch test if you haven’t used oils before or a lot.

When adding these to our meals, any 1 of the above go well with rice, in salad and dressing, with a little salt and pepper a little goes a long way here; it is recommended that diet and health programs already in progress should be considered. Check with your current people.

In my experience, each one of these is great in any remedy, comments on these collectively from clients have included:

  • The freshness has reignited in my stamina.
  • A settling of my mind that help me feel content in my decision making.
  • My body softened and I slept well.
  • My ambition showed me how I really wanted to be a better communicator.
  • I loved the carrot and the lavender, I ate them together. I couldn’t stop smiling, people at the party kept telling me how happy I looked.

Incorporating small measures in a step by step fashion, help to establish new rhythms. Especially good when repairing or building neural pathways. Allowing a more general cohesion between thought and action. Supporting the energy for reframing of outmoded niche perspectives. Promoting understanding, calm, reason and active listening feeds into a better foundation for growth. These ingredients are an investment in your well being. Take your moment, to provide for your complete self. Engage in the unique power of you. Allow dignity and find your balance.

Safe passage.

Navigating Our End of 2020.

With a couple of retrogrades happening within the end of this year, its worth mentioning a couple of points for consideration, to ease your path. Our illumination continues on in regards to social issues, authority and leadership, expression and justice. These impact and influence us all, raising to the top what has not yet been fully addressed. Primal urges called out in our behaviour, ask us to think before acting and speaking, with taking time out for considerations around maturing and evolving.

Fear and isolation may add to what you are positioned to navigate, with power struggles and confrontation in the mix. Our opportunity to keep our path forward towards success is firstly to understand that blocks and challenges are a sign to slow down, even to back off to avoid making major mistakes. Patience and small, slow steps are going to aid reaching goals.

Integrating with the Age of Aquarius energy, brings these aspects into the spotlight; self expression, sexuality, gender, innovation, collective well being and health, logical thought and growth. These apply to personal and professional environments and conduct. In business this includes industries like, technology, finance, communication for example social media platforms as well as psychology, the arts and social services. Personal feelings will be raised in professional environments. Concentrating on maintaining is relevant for project outcomes as well as profits. Including employees and client bases would also be wise in your considerations here.

This is an opportunity to tidy up, mature and resolve recurring issues and energies from past life experiences. As in Feng Shui, what is imperfect is a moment of choice. Our choices find us where we are and offer alternate options, if you can be in the moment, in the space, to respond out of victim or perpetrator mindsets to learn how to safely express Mars energy. Mars relates to anger, rage, negative energy left unchecked. Learning to utilise better expression of these characteristics once navigated can bring relief, more options for outcomes and aids us in feeling safe in vulnerability and risk assessment for balanced actions in the future.

For this I would recommend utilising the words in the image as your touchstone for quiet contemplation, aiding you in continuing towards yours and our success.

Safe passage.

I wanted to remind you today of magic, play and power. My day has been full of tech issues leading me to feel stagnant, like I’m taking steps backwards. I meditated and was reminded of how quiet helps. As well as even when its challenging, it is the very time to remember these aspects of our essence and that no matter what is going on for you today, tomorrow, next week these are essential to our well being.

The crow is an exceptional bird, highly perceptive they use tools, are fast learning, able to construct, solve problems and are adaptable. As well as recognising the importance of play. Magic can reinvigorate us, reconnect us and ground. Earthing our souls in the physical plane is crucial for clarity, building trust and remaining open in our agency of self. All supporting decision making and manifesting. Magic can help us step into the new, the unknown, carrying our faith, even if only in ourselves, into the future.

Beautiful dolphin, brings to us a sense of community, communication and playfulness. Giving our essence space to play aids our ability to be willing to engage. Enhancing solving problems while increasing creativity. Playfulness can allow us to try new things, to be in a learner mindset. Willingness aids us to have an open portal into our purpose.

Bee, our guide for pollinating our purpose with personal power. When we combine power with magical play, we are potent and fruitful. By utilising our essential unique approach, achieving our goals taps into a deep strength that is cosmically connected.

Finding our path forward, despite how we feel and doubt, is always served when we include magic, play and power. Step out of the immediate desire or call to have a fearful reaction. Create a space to play with your power and magic. Find your way to manifesting.

Safe passage.

Peaceful Prosperity

Our minds and words are part of our peace and prosperity, connected with health being our first wealth. When we feel challenged, overwhelmed or fearful it is wise to address our mindset, to continue towards our goals of peaceful prosperity being integrated with our health.

Our thoughts are what become. Our words carry vibration. Centred in personal agency and power, it is inevitable that what we think and say impacts, ourselves and those around us. Inciting or inspiring?

As we step forward into a time and space of serving for greater cause, peace and prosperity are formed and sustained through thoughts and words. Education grows to include self knowledge, including the shadow self, as well as this aspect of our societies and systems. As illumination continues, our understanding and education around where and how we have lived, comes to the surface.

In navigating through what has been in shadow, now coming into light, it is wise to ground, stabilise as best as able and consider. What are you creating? How are you engaging? What and who, do these serve?

Feelings of uncertainty, ask us to find a source of inner strength, compassion and discernment, in turn supporting immunity, right place right time, being articulate and a sense of fulfilled service for greater cause. Beginning with filling ourselves and expanding in expression, to include others.

888 Tips for settling self.

1. Clean, your space, person, pets. Tidying externally, cleans out negative thoughts and allows space for clarity.

2. Drink water. More, more, more. Water the garden bare foot.

3. Meditation, keep it simple. This can look like a gentle walk at sunset, yoga, a cup of tea in a quiet space. If you have young children, sleep when they sleep.

4. Read. Grow your perspective. This does not have to be work orientated materials. Do you read for pleasure?

5. Step out of routine. Where your able to without dismantling the home / work balance. Repetitive routines slow our thinking and can distance us from our emotional base.

Foremost be kind. Keep it simple and uncomplicated if the above is a little to much for where you are right now. Be kind. Start with yourself and as you overflow, you can discern who to share with.

Safe passage.
