Tap in & connect with the energies: Shadow work takes the power away from the past by helping you understand the root of your emotional reactions. Reactions that might have served as a survival method, but now simply prevent you from fully embracing life.
Note what behaviors you have that are triggered from different events throughout your day; people you meet, situations you are in. When do you notice yourself acting out of control, getting caught in reactions that you are not proud of? When our shadows act we often come from passed pain, that is applied in the now. Maybe you where once heartbroken and now have a hard time trusting others?
Let's deepen. Here is a full description for the current vibes:
Pluto went retrograde on the 29 of April, and since it is one of the slowest moving planets it will remain retrograde untill October. A retrograde period is often calling us to look within. Pluto rules over our shadows, and during its retrograde we are all asked to bring them out in the light; rather than turning away from this part of ourselves, give them love. And via that accept all of what we are. It is not until we do so that we can enable the full capacity and wisdom that Pluto shares; shadow work, that of alchemizing our pain into our greatest strength. Your passed pain can not control you once you choose to embrace this part of you with love.
Pluto is in Capricorn right now. Capricorn is all about rules and taking responsibility, she teaches that you can build any life you desire, all you need is within. The retrograde period is a time to feel into what rules you believe and stick to, rules that might have become restrictions. This is a time to feel into the deepest layers of who you are, and how that is controlling your life. Pluto governs over collective and individual trauma, this retrograde can help you understand and come to terms with what is happening in the world and what you are going through on a personal level.
Mercury planet of communication and Pallas Athena goddess asteroid of creative intelligence both shift signs at the beginning of this week. Mercury leaves the earth of Taurus for Geminis air, and Pallas leaves the fire of Aries for the earth of Taurus. Always when a celestial body shifts archetype we can expect a shift in the energy.
This week is a window of great mental inspiration because Mercury thrives in Gemini. You might feel the urge to explore and study something new. You might also catch yourself having a hard time focusing on one thing at a time, if so don't, let your mind run free, be curious about where it might take you. Gemini is all about new experiences and interactions with others. Pallas Athena with Taurus is calling you to explore the voice beyond the mental noise, the wisdom that thrives within your body, what does it whisper, and what is it calling you to do? Next week Mercury moves back into Taurus for it’s retrogtade, back up all your data, double check important info, all about this next week.
Mantra for this week: I lovingly embrace my shadows as a part of who I am.
