This week is about the space between lovers. It doesn't have to be romantic love either. The earth loves you. Do you love her back? Your lungs love you. Do you love them back?
Notice how little mind you paid to the examples above. Who thinks about the earth? Who thinks about their lungs? Sky and breath are guaranteed, right…? The mechanisms that support our lives are silent and assured. We ignore them when they are present and mourn them when they are gone. Like my daddy said, you don't miss your water till the well runs dry.
This week, we need to be grateful for our water, for our earth, for our lungs, for our people; for every invisible lover who goes unnoticed, but serves it's beloved anyway.
And if we should look up and for some reason our beloved isn't there, let us not assume the love is gone. Let us not assume the worst.
Let us have faith that more will be revealed and in the meantime in-between time, trust that all is well, and we are loved.
Ok y'all this is not a drill. This week may look minor as fuck (I usually say af but I'm out right cussing in the second sentence to get your attention, because that's how serious this week is) but it's MAJOR. Shit's happening whether you see it or not. You're going to need your Spidey Senses.
Speaking of Spidey Senses, let's talk about Pisces for a second. Pisces people get a bad rap for being so sensitive, but it is this very sensitivity that protects them from many of the traps in which the rest of us find ourselves. Pisces feel bullshit and go the other way. They may cry, but they GO.
Since Mercury is still retrograding through Pisces, we're all being reminded that we all have this Piscean power to sense and avoid traps, at least for another week or so. That is very helpful, because the (sorry for yelling but this next part is so, so important) THE DEVIL WALKS ABOUT SEEKING ALL HE CAN DEVOUR.
Frfr. Traps are EVERYWHERE. It's landmine city and we are blindfolded. These traps look like friends, lovers, confidants. These traps look like trust, truth, clarity. We won't see it until it's too late.
So this week, trust no bitch unless that bitch is you. No matter what. If it don't feel right, walk AWAY. Don't mind hurting anyone's feelings if they contradict your own. This week is mind over matter- YOUR MIND ABOUT YOUR SELF IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS.
Remember this and you shall stay free. Go forth and be joyous and let your heart be light. You are protected along your path, provided you feel each step. You are being guided. Do not stray. Do not look down. Do not look back.
Since this world is upside down, your “worst” qualities this week will be your saving grace. To quote A Wrinkle in Time, “To you, I give the gift of your faults.”
There is such a thing as a tesseract.
This week is looking hella (ok yeah I've lived in Cali for awhile now...lol) dramatic, like a showdown between good and evil, light and dark, escape and stagnation. Just remember that whatever blows up this week will provide the necessary fuel to get us unstuck. The north node is in Cancer currently, which means the universe is focused on forward movement only.
Speaking of forward movement, let's raise a hand if we know the difference between love and addiction. Here is a hint: space. Addiction offers zero space, but then when it's over it's OVER and we pray to never see it's face again. Love on the other hand, can be here today and a continent away tomorrow, but no matter how far it flies it's never not coming back.
Now addiction can feel fun. It pretends to be really super duper fun. But deep down the reason addiction won't give us any room is because it knows if we had a moment off the merry-go-round we would throw up and go home. And stay home.
Love on the other hand is stable, slow, steady and so fkn BORING, but it doesn't make us want to run away and throw up. Love makes us breathe deeply because our heart ISN'T racing. Sweaty palms and erratic pulse is a sign of ingesting poison, no? Love isn't supposed to feel like we might possibly die. Love is rest, not stress. Grandma's house. Sunday naps with the news in the background. Warm hands and even breaths.
This week we are led to listen to our bodies. How do we feel with our “loved” ones? It's a retrograde so regardless of how we feel, we shouldn't make any sudden moves...but do take note. Review.
Tests are coming soon.
This week begins Mercury's three week retrograde through Pisces. It's all about feelings- old feelings, new feelings, borrowed feelings, blue feelings. And the most irritating part about it is that we've felt all these feelings before. None of this is new. That's what a retrograde is, a REminder. A RE-do. A REfresher course.
So if we're REcycling obsessions, compulsions, fixations and childhood wounds like old clothes, Mercury is coming through like Johnny Cochran to REiterate - if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. LET THAT OLD SHIT GO.
Holding on only exacerbates our pain and disappointment because when this retrograde is over- and quite possibly before it's through - we're getting new inventory. A whole new shipment of feels. Regardless of our bias, the universe is confident we will want the new hotness and not the same old, same old. We must trust our favorites were discontinued for a reason. We must trust the universe has major upgrades with our ease and satisfaction in mind.
And this isn't a magical portal, either. On the other side of it, we won't be gifted with a glittery new miracle that makes everything worthwhile. Naw, what hurt will still hurt. All pain doesn't have a purpose.
But. At least we will finally grow the fuck up. At least we will learn to see and understand the first time around, so a painful REminder isn't necessary.
Where once we were smart, we shall now be wise. Sometimes that's all we get, and that's plenty.
