This week rests on friendship, relationship, connection. What is emotion anyway? How does energy move between ourselves and others? What is this magical energy in motion that allows people to get carried away in their love and longing for each other?
Perhaps there are some relationships in our lives that we’ve just given up because the energy just isn’t there. We fought the good fight, we tried to protect it -- we even gave the matter over to the Almighty. But the time comes for all things to die, no matter how much prayer and begging we do. Sometimes the death IS the answer to our prayer. If we can face that truth and allow ourselves to go through the grieving process, then we can be delivered to the other side. If Goddess herself is no longer putting energy into something, then it’s out of our hands. When energy transitions to another place, we must go with it. We can only thrive where life lives. Whatever is crumbling must be permitted to fall, so that the creator can rebuild in a manner that is pleasing to her.
This week we are writhing in our emotions, our hidden feelings, our secret places. We are feeling the things we rarely look at in the light. Our obstacle is faith, whether or not we have the strength to meet Goddess halfway when it comes to co-creating our deepest desires. If we believe our treasure is coming, we must clean house to create space. We must be honest about the seeds occupying soil in our lives that never, ever gave us a reward for our effort, no matter how diligently we tended the earth. We must be honest about our failures. And yet even as logic screams at us to cut our losses and throw it all away, we can’t help but hope that if we just work a little harder, just give it one more chance…
Our hearts are bigger than we ever imagined this week, and with big hearts come hope. And it has been said a time or two that with hope, anything is possible. Our advice this week is to keep our emotions steady while we balance them with our thoughts. Mind and heart must work together; neither know the way alone. We must be wary of blindly defending what we have always defended; but so must we also be wary of hastily abandoning that to which we have always been loyal. This is the week to let the universe fight our battles while we get a little rest.
New opportunities -- and possibly RENEWED opportunities -- are heading toward us this week. We don’t have to do anything except relax, refresh, and quite possibly -- reconsider. We are hesitant to rush to OR from anyone this week, because rushing at all in either direction will result in a missed opportunity. This week we need to let the magic of love, friendship & emotion play all around us, and allow that magic to reveal certain aspects of close relationships that we might otherwise miss.
