The year 2014 really hit us hard so far.
I had my head in my hands wondering “Why me?” practically every day since December 21st. We’re only 10 days into this year and it feels like a cosmic hailstorm complete with downed trees, damaged power lines, frayed nerves and a raging migraine. It has been so extraordinary to find other people are also being “slapped around” by her as well.
Now I am no astrologer, but I have people in the know. I have been consulting Professional Astrologer Kathy Biehl on these recent cosmic events. Let me tell you it’s a s**t storm out there! It’s not all doom and gloom, so I am providing some links for you to peruse to help get a grasp on these things and how we can make this period work for us.
The major events are occurring right now are that Venus is in Retrograde and the New Moon (New Years Day) was in Pluto, who is the lord of death and rebirth. Out-modeled relationships, things, people, values and whatever-is-not-working must go. Best to let it go, because if you grasp on it and hold on, it will wriggle out of your hands like a slippery fish, or turn on you and bite you.
A word to the wise during Venus Retrograde: Do not get married, start a new job, or start anything new this period. If you already have wedding plans, be mindful of your communication with your significant other.
The good news is, that it is temporary. In spring, things will settle, but they will not be the same. We are being re-invented, our lives changed. Change is never comfortable. So lets put on our grown-up pants, get out there, and do some work. It is not easy but it is necessary.
