Cards: ALL REVERSED!!! Knight of Pentacles, 8 of Wands, Ace of Swords
Stones: Botswana Agate, Smoky Quartz, Rhyolite, 2 Citrines!
There seems to be resistance to even facing up to the week! (Considering Mercury goes retrograde this week, I don’t blame anybody! ) Bottom line, here is this week’s overall message: Some obstacles and body issues may have us feeling stagnant and scatterbrained. Body care/movement, a more positive self-image, and removing some of life’s obstacles will help us not only detoxify, but also bring forth some spiritual growth, forward movement, and help us get more focused.
Obsessing about obstacles making you lethargic? You may want to use the Botswana agate to help shut off obsessive/ destructive behaviours, as well as get your body moving. Transmuting negative energies into practicality and organization can be to your benefit, as well as integrating the past life lessons into to the present so that you can resolve some issues and move forward also. Good ol’ Merc Ret is occurring again ~ are there some good ideas you put up on the shelf and hadn’t proceeded forth with yet? By the end of the week it looks to be time to get refocused and re-motivated to get going on these ideas. Merc Ret gives us a chance to re-do things. Citrine helps with cleansing, mental clarity, creativity, and regenerating, as well as promoting joy, positive attitudes, and attracting prosperity and success. In a reading, Citrine suggests trying something new. I struggled with this, as during a Mercury Retrograde phase, it’s never ideal to start something new. I concluded that being in conjunction with the reversed ace of swords and all the astrology involved, it’s about breathing new life into ideas that have been lying around, waiting for their chance in the sun. They are technically still new ideas, but to you they may be old new ideas; they have been sitting in the back of your mind for a while. It seems that at the time you originally had some of these ideas, it just wasn’t time to enact on them to bring success, and they needed to percolate for a while. Perhaps now your approach may be a little different! Time to re-energize and re-work these ideas! (Mercury retrograde loophole with the New Moon! whoppee!!)
Have an enjoyable week.
Peace, Love, and Light,
