I had an intense week, I experience a ton of various emotions. I had a freak out, I had a melt down, I had a good cry session. I also wondered what is the world is going on?? I knew this would pass. I had been told that I would be very emotional this week, the topic causing it could not be foreseen but it would happen and that at least was something I could prepare for. Overall I found that when I just embraced all that I was feeling it became very intense but also it went away a lot faster than if I had resisted it. I didn't know how long the feelings would last and maybe this is the part of us that wishes it goes away that tries to push feelings away. I feel a lot stronger after going through it. My intuitive senses have also increased and I feel that we have to go through tough times sometimes (the Universe hands us) so that we come out feeling just how strong we really are.
Now we have gotten through the Full Moon phase, we have the planets moving signs this week. Wednesday Jupiter is moving from Cancer to Leo. We've been in Cancer energy since June 25 (which has been family oriented, private craving, and nesting qualities which of course has been a struggle for Jupiter which is naturally full of loud expansive energy.
Jupiter working in Leo lasts until August 11, 2015 which brings the glam of Leo with the expansive Jupiter qualities. These two will have us expressing our true self and not being afraid to let it be heard! We are in for a ton of creativity of all kinds with these two pairing together. Leo is all about the courtship. If you have been in a relationship, look for a change up in behavior (the good kind being more romantic and sweeping you off your feet!) We also get with this the ego with all the big power Jupiter brings out as Leo compliments, so we simply address this as it comes up. We have the opportunity to grow further by reeling it in (the ego) so that we don't get a big head from all the attention we might be getting soon. We receive the lessons so that we may change, and adjust and not act like we did before to these ego inflated events that come up. Or you can just keep going around in the circle over and over again (if you'd like too).
Friday July 18, we also have Venus in Cancer which stays here until August 12, 2014. Venus energy in Cancer is all about the romance and allow subtle positive love energies to come into play. Venus and Cancer are both associate with the feminine energy so men get in touch with your feminine side and women will embrace sisterhoods. The next three weeks is about healing (another feminine quality) in all aspects of your life (not just romance).
Rolling into the weekend, Sunday July 20 we have Saturn moving out of the four and a half retrograde. We may have noticed some slow downs and projects taking a bit longer than we anticipated. The energies get moving forward once again!! With Saturn moving out of Retrograde it's in Scorpio which has brought to light secrets, agendas, and called out people's true natures. Out of the Retrograde we are moving forward with partnerships and work projects. We have all learned lessons since the beginning of this Retrograde on March 2. There are no more excuses this time, it is about following your intuition and at the end of the day it is all about being happy.
There are always going to be planets moving in and out of Retrogrades, it is nothing to fear or to stop your life over. We just simply move with it, I personally like to use these as tools of why maybe something isn't moving as fast as I'd like ... or give an explanation of someone else's behavior. I by no means let it stop me or stall my energy (on purpose). The Universe has it's plan for us and we can't always see it. So why not smile and enjoy happiness?
