It is election season and regardless of who you are favoring for the election just know that there are going to be those that are very disappointed as there is always a winner and looser. Whatever happens I am hoping that finally we can all choose to work together for a better country whose government is not stagnated by those who refuse to cooperate and work together. Life is about compromises and everyone has had to make them at different times in their life. Rarely do we get exactly what we want but life is about learning to take what the universe is offering and then making something unique and special out of it.
I believe in human ingenuity and the creative free spirit that is the United States of America (special emphasis on the United part). Let us all come together and drop the shields where we have put out our positions, sides, and beliefs and remember that first and foremost we are a hodgepodge of people from all races, cultures, and creeds. What we have created here in the United States is unique in the world and let us show the rest of the world how to put differences aside and find where we are the same and how we can work together to build a better world.
This month, the cards indicate that it is time to put aside the petty fighting and look to the larger world issues that affect not just us but all of life on this planet. Together we can create a world of potential and promise for our families but we have to hold hands to do that.
Take a look at the manipulations that you have been using to justify your feelings and instead of manipulating, why not just feel your feelings all the way through until they get to the bottom of what you are afraid of seeing inside of you. Projection is always about a disowned internal part that is trying to get our attention and this last year many of us have had to take a hard look at who we thought we were and who we might actually be. For some of us that was a difficult wake up call but one that was essential for our growth and development.
This is a moment to learn when to speak and when to listen. When to observe and allow others to reveal his or her deeper intent rather than react and shut the process of truth down in your need to express your opinion. Listening is an art that takes trust and self-confidence. Listening takes patience. Listening requires you to be fully with the other person and not thinking about how to respond. Observation is essential to find truth. Step out of yourself and step into another person’s perspective, ideas, and expression. You will always learn much more that way.
Many of the cards this month refer to the need to retreat, withdraw, observe, or focus on compassion for yourself first as you are on a sacred journey into the deepest places of your soul. Neptune is going to be in Pisces until 2028 and that is going to give each of us an opportunity to dive deep and discover the hidden treasures and resources that are available if we are willing to face the fear of the unknown. It is difficult to let the past go. It is even more difficult to let the stories of the past go that you have been telling again and again to justify what you are feeling.
This month there is great confusion as to what the true reality is. Don’t expect a quick answer as we are all learning to swim in the stormy waters of Neptune. The only way through is to trust your soul and allow your heart to be the compass that guides you through that storm.
This is a time for contemplation to discover how you are like the things that draw your attention. Those things that pull at you whether they be crystals, sound, meditation, creative things, etc. are a reflection of who you really are. When you want to be calm and clear like a Buddha you embody that feeling and that energy and then you discover that within you has always been a Buddha waiting patiently to emerge.
Take some time for yourself. Go slowly into this new space and when you do you will discover an untapped resource of energy that is powerful and stronger because your mind is no longer in the way blocking the purest expression of who you really are.
Take some of that energy that you have been using to fight the world and instead turn that focus into loving yourself fully and completely. Then from a place of feeling full of love, take that energy out into the world and share what comes from your authentic self. If each of us did that, the world would be an amazing place to be.
