There is a choice waiting to be made. It feels difficult because it has to do with our desire, vision and purpose. There’s a sense of wanting to put this decision off because it’s so important. Courage is required because the feelings of indecision are not from lack of information or clarity. This choice changes many parts of our lives. The windows of our perception are open and insights, feelings, and glimpses of possible futures are flooding into our consciousness. We’re surprised because the work we’ve done has seemed to take a long time with no definite results, confusion has just vanished, not yet replaced by the clarity to say: Yes, that. We thought we were able to take time off and relax. Yet, life is always in motion transforming itself in response to our thoughts and desires. So now the Wind of the Above has blown open the doors of our inner self and the choice of which one to walk through is upon us. You’ve done the work. Focus and you will experience of the pull from one of the doors and the courage to walk through. It’s your time.
We face a conflict, an enemy of our wishes and desires. It appears at times that we will lose this battle and it is easy to become discouraged, even depressed about the apparent outcome. Yet, our inherent courage is rising to the surface. We can rely on it. Our fight is with our conflicting thoughts. Turn inward. Sense that our emotions are connected to our intent and creative energy. Realize our thoughts are manifested in our world. The battle we face is with ourselves. We have brought ourselves to the edge of a transformation. On all levels – spiritual, mental and physical – we are about to experience the world we have wished for and sacrificed our time and energy. Breakthroughs are imminent. Our Higher Selves have a message for us. Tune in; listen.
The Spring Equinox ushers in new, supercharged energy that is available for us to reinforce and strengthen the structure of our life or change it. March is the most beneficial time for alchemists to begin the next stage of their manifestation of the Great Work. These forces from the Above give us new energy to create the life we want. A breakdown of usual structures and perhaps a personal tragedy have happened that left us mentally confused and emotionally hurt or defensive. Enough time has passed however that a healing and restoration is possible. It emerges from embracing our emotional self. Getting in touch with this part of our self is the beginning of our personal Great Work. Focus on the opposition to our desires, wishes, feelings and behavior we have encountered and discover a new way to address and move beyond them. The key is to identify what our essence is, what is that signature characteristic that is uniquely us. Then, embrace and elevate it. Complete these two statements and find a way to focus on them each day: “I am …” and “I believe in…”
Getting through each day has been difficult. A sense of separation and mental fog or discontent fills the air. Our triumphs feel ephemeral, dream like. Yet, our expressions of compassion carry us through and leave us feeling restored. This compassion is founded on our ability to be both receptive and benevolent to others. A powerful force from outside ourselves fills us with energy now. A major cycle of completion has recently occurred, a phase, project or step we have been working on for a long time. However, we feel a sense of being pulled to take another step. Stay aware, do not fall asleep on your journey. Ask yourself two questions: What am I ready to release? What am I creating space for?
It’s not about our self – our little self. It’s all about our Self – our Higher Self. The ability to influence and even control important parts of our material world is present and available to us. This comes with a price. It is very seductive to have this control and we risk putting all of our energy into it. But, we are meant for larger things. Embrace inspiration. The emotional balance we are beginning to feel is a foundation on which to build. Courage is required to manage our thoughts which remain chaotic and unpredictable. Grounding ourselves in the here and now of our worldly experience will give us the clarity of mind that is required. We may feel energized but are unsure of what this means or how to use it. Look inside for inspiration from the Above. We’ve created a balance within us whether or not we feel this. Look for it. The foundation we have been resting upon has just shifted. Something significant has changed. Ask yourself: What is this? It’s time to transform. The inspiration we’ve been looking for is here. Reach for it. The next step lies within. See the answers to your questions there.
Something new is being birthed. It’s both an opportunity and a scary time. The focus now is: What about me? This question emerges from fear. The plans we are putting in place come from our knowledge that has helped us in the past. But changes are happening too fast to plan this way. What is necessary now is to go inside and find our emotional center. When we do, the opportunities for cooperation and even collaboration will appear within our reach. Anxiety has been present for some time. Its hold on us however is loosening. To make the changes we want, we must choose in the face of unpredictability. Keeping our focus on our feelings, we will become aware of the significant changes that have already been made. The next step? Build our road as we move forward. Continue to create.
The core issue for this week is a sense of hope and inspiration. Do not be surprised if you have a very clear picture of the future that you want. You can get there but it will not be easy. You are surrounded by concealment, conflict, unrealistic idealism and impulsiveness. This is a natural way all of us react to exciting, overwhelming and unpredictable times. There is much movement. This is a time to gather information, travel to do so if necessary and, above all, remain aware. The Forces of the Above also have a very strong presence, more than usual. Take advantage of this; build and create – ideas, relationships as well as material things. There is some opposition in communications so use self counsel in your decision making. Do not become too involved in the details of your environment. See the balance in opposites. Bring them together to create something new. By the end of this week you will have a feeling of regeneration and the flowering of your self.
The core issue of this time is our ability to recognize and accept that our progress and transformation is intimately tied to others. Cooperation and collaboration are necessary for transformation. On an Elemental level, the winds and tides of our life is with us. While we may feel uncertain and vacillating and must be vigilant to not become mired in the details of our lives, we are aware of our emotions and they will carry the day. Success and accomplishment of our goals and wishes on the material or spiritual planes of our lives are within our reach now. We will be called upon to surrender part of our lives, but this will lead to an awakening of our inner selves. We will be asked to remain responsible in the face of a challenge, but by doing so will create the foundation for creating the new life we want. We will be anxious about taking the next step that we see in front of us, but it will lead to the igniting of our involvement in our personal transformation. Timing is important. Stay awake, be vigilant. You’ll know when the time is right.
The essence of this time is restoration – a gift of material well being we are to receive after a long period of striving and hard work. Our lives are influenced now by very powerful energies from each of the Four Elements. There is a balance of impulses and emotional awareness. We are more able to remain open to our feelings, emotions and intuition. We can clearly see our next steps. What has been hidden is now revealed. As a result of the clarity and balance we’ve achieved, our real wishes and desires stand before us. It is time to focus our heightened awareness on what we really want because we are able to reach out and touch it. Recite an alchemical decree that is significant for this moment: “I honor all that exists.” Embrace what you see.
Powerful energies have been released. If we allow ourselves to be aware of them and use them, a transformation will burst forth now. We will recognize this transformation. We will feel closer to our true selves. We will be able to clearly express ourselves to others. And doing this will ignite more transformation. Some will resist. The challenge will be to hold this image of ourselves, to embrace it. While we will feel under attack and more significant changes will follow, we will be able to reclaim our lost essence. It is very important to stay on the path we have recently chosen. See the essence in all things. Elevate ourselves and others. Reciting the alchemical decree: “I believe in …” and filling in the space for ourselves will comfort and support us at this time.
