Mon 21st – Tue 22nd : The Golden Phoenix
Curious to see this one pop up as we get this one quite a bit in these readings. But why? Because we are being given so many opportunities this year to really look into energies, situations etc and let go of what isn’t working – to make space for what’s coming in.
This is the Phoenix cycle : death and rebirth. The letting go of what is dragging you down, not working, or simply sitting stagnating and from the ashes something new comes forwards.
The spiral of life so to speak. And it’s in constant motion so work with it.
With the fast approaching Mercury retrograde on 31st Oct (don’t panic it’s a positive thing folks) we will be given even more changes to revisit, re-asses, look back. This is the head start …..
If you find something popping up that you thought you had dealt with it may be you have another layer or so to go. And while it can frustrate at times see it for the gift that it is. The ability to shed more of what really isn’t you or for you anymore. That’s the positive to strive for.
It may be that it’s popped back up to point you in another direction and that’s good too.
Wed 23rd – Thur 24th : Rebirth
Seeing a theme this week perchance? The shock of the colour may jolt you and that’s possibly , for some, whats needed right now. A little jolt to catch your attention.
After the shedding at the start of the week it’s straight into the rebirth stage. It can be as simple as a new idea or it can be as involved as a complete change of job, energies, people. It’s whatever it needs to be for you at that time.
It looks and feels different for everyone.
But recognise it for what it is. Something new. Something to be embraced. Something to move forwards.
But now is not really the time to go sprinting towards whatever it is. Instead take some time to allow it to settle, to understand it in more depth. Go slooooooooowly.
For a few of you it may signal a short retreat inwards, away from social media, away from your nearest and dearest. Some space and time in silence and contemplation.
As ever we say go as guided.
Fri 25th – Sun 27th : Time to rest
And to focus your attention we have another pretty blunt statement that it’s time to rest.
Let the shedding and newness integrate. Allow yourself time and space to find your balance after the shifts – as they can be a little unsettling at times. It takes a little time to settle out. So GIFT yourself this as part of your self care.
This card also, for the UK, falls slap bang on the end of summer time when the clocks go back an hour. So in a physical sense you may find you need a little extra rest to adjust (I know I always do)
Rest means different things to different people – so if for you it means reading a book, taking a walk, catching up with friends…….do what works for you.
It’s a transitional time right now and this is just a reminder that once you do all the hard work rest time is a good idea for your soul and spirits.
Start of the week – you may be given the opportunity to revisit something you thought was dealt with. Perhaps not – you may have a few layers to go yet. So work through it, do the needful and let it go with grace. All you’re doing is creating space for what’s coming in.
Mid week – new ideas, new energies, new directions……new life from the ashes. This is all part of the phoenix cycle which when you work with it can move at quite a speed. So take time to let it all settle before you do the next thing……you’ll thank yourself for it.
End of the week – we all need R&R at times. Use the end of the week to recharge your batteries and to take some time out for yourself. To adjust and rebalance after the shifts and changes of direction this week.
