This has been a real rough retrograde for many of us. We still have almost 2 weeks left (ends July 1) and then another 2 weeks (July 2-15), to see if we learned our lesson during the retrograde. The test is to see if we can communicate with others without having to worry about judgment or criticism and to be ourselves.
This retrograde is all about bankruptcy. Not only in money but also in energy! Lacking energy to go to gatherings with friends, of identity (self-doubt, lack of confidence), and to work in our passions. Thank goodness we have people who will always remind us of our real identity and the great gifts we have to share with others when we feel less than inspired. This is a great time to move us forward when the retrograde is over.
In order to move forward into new opportunities and people, we must move out of the old first. This bankruptcy going on in our lives is the ‘cleansing’ process to move forward. We are shedding responsibilities of homes, people, possessions, and money so that we can move onto something worth rebuilding, only better.
Some may think it counter-intuitive to be bankrupt before the gates open up where you can access that divine God source energy but this is exactly the time to tap in. It is often when we have nothing left that we tend to look to God, so this cleansing process is needed to get into that Divine space. This is the time we are often most open to the help that the Divine energy offers us.
Some people may feel the need to make topics of conversation about all the people they have ‘lost’, how little money they have, how they have no energy, or how they are not happy with their careers. This is the time to go within and have a conversation with Divine to appreciate what you have had instead of dwelling on what is lacking.
When it comes to our identity, it is time to bankrupt those ideas and words that are someone else’s. This is the time to step into the unique individuals that we are, even if we find that we are being mocked or made fun of. This is the time to step out into the light to be seen and stop worrying if everyone else is doing or saying what we are. This time is about our identities, projects and creations and the things we are speaking out to others about. This is the time of hope and renewal for us through new ways of being, speaking and creating.
There is also a sextile going on. In sacred geometry, this creates the shape of the star of David, or merkabah. This is telling us that we have the potential to get somewhere we could never get to before with just a little spin on our part. It brings growth and expansion in science, technology and industry as well as telling us to leave the ego behind and serve humanity. When adding this to the bankruptcy energy, the message is that we are being cleansed so that we can transform our ego identities and the way we speak into something that can be in more service to humanity and the collective greater good.
We are also being advised to tap into that feminine heart space and to look DEEP within for that energy. The key to unlocking our chakras and reading our individualized, personal letter is through that heart chakra. We may be feeling a sense of urgency to dive deep within ourselves in order to open up our chakras and purge what is not helping us to complete the service we came here to do.
We may have some great new ideas in helping us to grow spiritually. This is the energy that is being offered to us right now and can be used to take humanity from one way of thinking to another.
The sextile is creating a sense of urgency by wiping clean our old speech habits to open our chakra system so that we can do what we came here to do, to open us up and create the opportunity for great expansion of who we really are.
On a personal level, old situations and arguments, (ones that we felt that we had moved on from), are coming about that may be emotionally charged and in some ways, we may even be feeling attacked by. I caution you to sit back and let this storm roll through. Don’t give it a place to land so that it will run out of steam on its own. The old adage “it takes two to tango” comes to mind.
Uranus jolts us out of our patterns and ruts. It’s a lot like spinning around in circles. The spinning motion of this could end in two ways. It could spin out and dissipate or spin out of control. When spinning in circles, nothing is accomplished so it is best to disengage from any “war” activity with other people.
Starting yesterday, Chiron went retrograde. The great healer that could not heal himself. This means we are going back over old ground so that we have a cosmic ‘do-over’. This weekend the sun will be moving onto the symbols of the heart chakra, so this is the powerful time to do some sort of meditation that connects the heart chakra to the God space energy. There is very much to be gained from spending time in meditation this weekend. I hope this gives some of you some insight so there is understanding in this time of what could seem like challenge or struggle.
Hold on, it’s almost over…
