Wisdom of the Hidden Realms

The Solstice marks the transition between seasons and sets the tone for the one that is beginning. The main theme for this season is going back to your heart, reconnecting, and rescuing what is truly important to you on a soul level. This can apply to any aspect of your life: work, family, home, relationships, friends, health, spirituality, hobbies, interests, etc. The soul longs to be reunited to what it connects to on a deep level, and you will never be fulfilled if you keep looking for things outside of that parameter. Accept what is yours and what is not. Stick to what belongs to you and to where you belong. There is no point in fighting the river of life, for it is much too strong to go against.

Soul mate reunions are likely to abound. Healing relationships with family and friends are facilitated and important to help create new ways of connecting with people. Coming back home to your heart is always a rediscover, a reconnection, a do-over, a renewal, for what is inside it pertains to your previous lives in a line that goes straight into your soul.  It is about reconnecting to family and to what is familiar in a broad sense, expanding and reinventing it. Second chances for you and others are in order. Many endings will be an intrinsic part of this process as many realignments occur. Reap all the goodies from your past and let the rest go. Energy clearings will be very helpful and oftentimes needed.

This is all part of a universal process that encompasses karma, cosmic cycles, astrological and energy shifts, which is in a sense the forces of destiny having a direct impact in our lives. This affects everyone, whether we like it or not, and we must all adapt to it one way or another. This is part of the movement of life in a broad sense and a process of collective spiritual evolution.

On the personal level, how we perceive this process is important in determining our choices. We cannot stop the changes, but we can choose what to do as we face them. In fact, we are being giving a lot of power to rewrite our story and our destiny right now. Clarity of mind, discernment, and staying away from emotional turmoils will be extremely helpful. Be very clear about who you are and what resonates with you, at the same time being open, flexible, and forgiving about the past. Know where you stand and take firm decisions without fear. If something aligns deeply with your heart, then it should be in your life. Let old leaves fall. A lot of spiritual messages and guidance is at your disposal to help you with clarity of mind and emotional balance. Look for help if you need it.

As you move closer and closer to your real expanded nature, you will step more and more into you power, whatever that means to you, and see yourself getting stronger. You will recognize your most beautiful inner traits, reconnect with them, and let them be seen in the world. In a sense, this is a season to stop postponing the coming home to yourself, living accordingly to your deep feelings, having more depth about you and your life in every sense.

Reevaluation, emotional dramas, endings and separations can cause a lot of distress and confusion. There will be a lot of that, but this is not necessary by any means. There is a beautiful sacred energy around that allows for a smooth transition into a better version of ourselves and our lives. There is clash and dissent in the air, but also a very loving, safe and supportive energy coming in for all of us. It is almost as if there were two parallel realities in our world and we get to choose within which dynamics we want to remain. This process is already in motion and the Holiday Season is an excellent time to put your new frame of mind and heart into action, as old feelings surface and we get together with family and friends.

Have a wonderful season, full of growth and positive realignments!

Summer Solstice: June 21, 2015 – Tarot and Sabian Symbols

The Swan Queen 20150611_105046

The Sun enters Cancer on June 21 marking the Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere, and the Winter Solstice in the Southern. The Oracle card – The Swan Queen – is the same that had appeared for the Total Solar Eclipse at the Equinox, on March 20. Since the effects of a Solar Eclipse can be felt up to 6 months, the reappearance of this card reaffirms that its energy is still very active, and it shows how it has progressed from the Equinox to the Solstice. Back then, we had the color purple indicating inner focus and a clearing of the heart and of emotions; now it comes up again showing that the process continues with a deep and complete energetic purification as we redirect our energy accordingly to our new focus. The ice had begun to melt down exposing the dirt underneath it, which represented what needed to be purged. Now, things continue to heat up and the melted ice turns into flowing water, initiating some movement. The heat is coming from the fire in our hearts lit up by a desire for transformation that could lead to genuine happiness. Everything that seems superfluous, artificial or fake in your life will become unsustainable and almost unbearable. From this movement inside, things around you will begin moving accordingly. That will remove what has been standing in your way – two things must leave or change needs to happen in two areas of your life. We have been going round in circles in a sort of suspension, even if we haven’t noticed it, and it is time to put an end to it. This is a golden opportunity to choose whether we want to continue going through the motions or provoke a deep change in our lives.

You might find yourself rekindling old dreams, professional plans, places you wanted to visit or live, and reconnecting with people you would like back in your life. As you embark on the adventure of rebuilding and restructuring your life, you will get a breath of fresh air, see your vitality and enthusiasm increase, and restore faith in happiness.

Be patient about timing. What is important is to make a conscious, deep, inner resolution and follow it through. The first signs of new things coming in are already there, and you might spot them if you look around. As movement begins, make plans for the future, especially regarding relocating yourself and your resources. This is a powerful moment to do so since the Solar Eclipse point, Pisces 29-30, which is the last degree of the zodiac, is a strong indication of the end of a big cycle and the transition into a new one; the Solstice is one of the 4 points of the year cycle that sets the tone for the season it opens; and the New Moon is the right time for planting seeds. Get some inspiration from the Sabian Symbol for Pisces 29-30: “A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it”. Dream big and aim high. Create mental pictures of your plan and put it into writing so as to define it well, be a reminder and keep you focused until you grow into it.

Spring/Autumn Equinox: March 20, 2015 Tarot, Color and Oracle Cards

compassion

20150320_075816

The Equinox opens up a window in which we learn to be kinder to ourselves, and in turn the world becomes kinder to us. This will help us achieve a whole new level of self-acceptance and self-love. Self-love is the foundation for every other kind of love and a determinant of the quality of your relationships. Having compassion for yourself, others, events and circumstances in your life provides you an in-depth view about your past, present and future relationships that can open paths for new or renewed possibilities.

Be accepting of both your heart and your mind. When they are not in accord, take both sides into consideration, without denying either one nor taking sides. From a point of internal peace, it is easier to find good solutions and make decisions. Being torn between emotions and reason is a great waste of energy. Get used to being on the top of the both of them and gain the gift of balance, wisdom and sovereignty over your life.
