Last week, I challenged you to call out that spade, and to play your cards on the side of truth. That challenge still stands. We are entering choppy waters as we approach the end of 2017. The Universe will be encouraging us (or nagging, pressuring, and pushing, depending on how willing you are to heed its call) to hold steadfast in what is true regarding important actions that need to be taken. The planet Mercury links up to Saturn this week, a tough combination that grounds us in hard facts and reality. When Mercury turns retrograde next week, a period of reviews, reassessments, and continued conversations will ensue.
As the Sun enters the sign of Sagittarius the Archer this week, I cannot help but to reflect on what this sign represents in Astrology. Sagittarius is the truth seeker of the Zodiac – the sign that wants to experience life and say that it lived. Sagittarius is the philosopher, the wise old sage, the dreamer, and the explorer. Once the Sun is done digging up dirt in the form of limiting beliefs, secrets, and old wounds that need to be unearthed while in the sign of Scorpio, the light of all light ensures that we expand and evolve through a greater, more integrated awareness - that is the power of Sagittarius.
Last week, I gave an astrology reading to a client who was getting the shit kicked out of him in various areas of life. When we finished, I checked-in to see how he felt about his reading, and he responded that, “to be honest,” he was very disappointed. I asked why, and he replied that he was disheartened to learn the next six months would be much of the same difficulties he had been experiencing over the past year. I followed up; “well, now that you are aware of what is happening over these next few months, how might you react differently?” He said that he would continue to react the way he’s been reacting – by doing the best that he can.
