This week’s tarot card is the 6 of swords.
Quite fitting as we leave 2020, journeying away from all the stress and turmoil, while creating a new life from a higher vision and enlightened lens of clarity. This minor arcana card represents Mercury in Aquarius and signals a powerful retrograde that begins on 1/30, kicking off a dynamic year of change and transformation.
Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, known as the Great Awakener that provides a clearer perspective for us to move forward.
As we journey towards a new life, detachment from the outcome is key. You need to be able to analyze and view your future aspirations and goals without being bias or applying too much emotion.
Trust yourself and know you have the ability to move forward after difficult experiences and make decisions that will benefit your life.
Sudden jolts of electricity signify a greater awareness of our thinking and actions. Do not waste your time stressing over old traumas, that slows down healing and weakens your immune system. We really need to let the baggage go and move forward.
Trust the process, because change requires your full participation.

Today is empowering as Mars finally recovers from his retrograde, preparing to enter the compassionate and grounding sign of Taurus in a few days. Mars in Aries 2020, was a hero’s journey of a lifetime. A cycle that hasn’t occurred in over 32 years. Teaching us how to properly channel our misplaced anger, frustrations, and fear. Along with releasing ego-based identities, titles, and roles. The ruler of our physical body, inner sexual power, and truth. With Mars in Taurus, we will be free to breathe, ground, and live authentically from our hearts. Releasing the fear and inflammation around our heart space and physical body. Mercury forms an eliminator with the North Node and the choices we make from here on out will determine success in the years to come.

Venus and Eris manifest under the stars today, creating new pathways to elevate and live from your heart. We have to learn how to tame our inner fire of devotion and not be consumed by rage. Mastering our inner fire. When we honor our feelings and the shadows that arise, we birth the possibility of change. When we surrender to the sacred vibrations of our heart, we are able to live authentically in this realm. Mercury conjuncts Pluto clearing the mental distortion and fog that holds you captive and prevents you from accessing your heart. It is through the shadows you shine bright.
The Moon enters Venus-ruled Libra for inner balancing and harmony. This energy also increases the need for social interaction, but may also bring up inner issues regarding codependency. Your self-worth and values should not be determined by the actions and reactions of others. Continue to make peace with any past family conditioning and influences. That does not define you, what defines you is the choice you make going forward to be your own source of power.
Mercury squares Eris, while conjunct Pluto in an explosive conversation that rebirths the divine mind. Pluto takes Mercury into the depths of the subconscious mind for realization, and divine mind revealing. This conversation between the planets may disrupt your intellect and threaten your ego. This tricks you to go into hiding and buries the authentic parts of self. There is so much mystery and power to uncover in the unknown parts of the mind. Don’t hold back, explore the mysteries of your mind.
We have no major conversations between the planets today. A perfect opportunity to rest and recharge. Write down new ideas and inspirations that flow to you from spirit. Trust everything that is being revealed. This is the integration of your 3d self with spirit.
At last, Mars moves forward into the compassionate and grounding sign of Taurus. Here we are able to ground our mental body in higher consciousness.

A brand new soul journey of compassion, grace, integrity, and love. This station creates a new wave for the divine masculine & feminine to live authentically from their hearts. It grants us an opportunity to focus and ground our actions while learning to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

The Moon enters Sagittarius later this evening for mental purification. The fire of Sagittarius emits physical wisdom so we may empower ourselves and purify the mental body for healing and expansion to take place. It is time to keep your word! Hold yourself accountable for the inner promises you make.
Eris, the Goddess of discord and strike stations direct to take down the patriarchy and provide resources to build the new paradigm. Her retrograde along with conversations to Mars and Pluto demanded that we “KNOW THY SELF” Know our anger, fear, pain, and most importantly, our power. It is time we fight for ourselves and remember our sacred pack as keepers of the Earth.
