Weekly Guidance 12/26 – 1/1

A very interesting week lies ahead of us.

First we have the Wheel of Fortune, which means that we are at a turning point.

This can be sort of a wild card which brings the unexpected.  It’s up to us to use what we get for our greatest good and highest potential.

At times when there are big changes happening in our lives, or a turning of the season, it can be even more important to stay centered.

Connect with what grounds us – whether that is our meditative practice or our family…whatever makes us feel at home.

It’s important to get back to our true selves after being pulled in different directions so we don’t lose our sense of inner navigation.

Judgement comes in to remind us that we all have an inner calling, special purpose, and reason for being here…

…and your individual life is intimately connected to all of life.

Your personal wellbeing influences the whole of humanity and the world.

Can you imagine if every single person in the world was making choices and decisions out of their greatest good in every single moment?

Individuals wouldn’t be able to consciously do harm to another because it’s actually harming themselves.  Everything we do to and for ourselves has a ripple effect.

The 6 of Cups comes in and the end of the week reminding us to not take things too seriously, and of the importance of our inner child.

Children are so innocent and pure and need guidance and direction and love, not being controlled or manipulated.   Please treat yourself and the children in your life with love and respect.

Children need adults in their lives who are willing to be a great example for them of how to live a life with integrity and compassion, and purpose and brilliance.

This is also a reminder to enjoy the simple things in life and take pleasure in simple beautiful moments.

Each moment is unique and will never happen again in the same way.

That doesn’t mean we must hold on to it or fight against change, because good things are always coming and new moments will happen…

…but it does mean we just relax into what’s happening right now and don’t take it for granted.

Do something playful for yourself this weekend.

There is a shift in energy in this week as Mercury goes retrograde and the Winter Solstice is on Wednesday.

This is the time to relax and unwind and bring cycles and projects to completion.

Tie up any loose ends and finish what you have started in the past couple of weeks.

Writing things down can help us stay organized during a Mercury retrograde cycle.

The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year and from this point on the lights starts to increase.

It’s a good time for internal reflection.

There may be some thoughts or issues that come up around your personal identity in the way that you see yourself and your roles in the world.

Know that you don’t have to define yourself.  

It’s OK to be with pure essence of your soul without having to place any demands or expectations on it.

Connect yourself back to your state of pure awareness.

Suggested Meditation:

Light a tealight candle and burn some sage or incense.

Sit in a meditative position, breathing deeply.

Connect through your inner eye to the heart of the Cosmic mother.

You may sense this as a black space that is endlessly expansive.

You may feel that the boundaries of your body dissolve, and feel around you an endless space.

This is a completely natural place to be as it is the source of all creation.

It is safe and nurturing for your spirit.

Allow yourself to be silent in this place for 10 to 20 minutes.

In the beginning of the week we have the 3 of Pentacles, which is about working together towards a common goal.

When working together as a team, the goal of the team must be more important than any individual’s motive.  With all things in life you need a balance, so you also must make sure that everything is fair, and no one is being taken advantage of.

To have an effective team, there must be clarity.  Everyone must know their part.  This requires communication which takes us to…

The 3 of Swords in the middle of the week.  This is about using logic over emotion.

If you find yourself in the midst of a highly charged emotional atmosphere, we can clear the storm by using logic to sort through our emotions.

The most sensible and logical solution to a problem may not be the most immediately emotionally satisfying. 

However, if we let our emotions overtake us and ignore our logic…this can lead to us becoming soft, lazy, self-serving, complacent.

This bring us to the 9 of Cups.

Using logic over emotion and cooperating with your community will ultimately bring a deeper sense of emotional fulfillment.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking you should only do things that make you feel good. 

Cliché statements like “follow your heart” and “if it feels good, do it, if it doesn’t, don’t” may sometimes accurately apply in our lives…

But they can also be dangerous if we don’t critically analyze our own motivations and why something makes us feel good.

For example, stepping into our Highest Potential may mean doing something that is extremely challenging. 

But if you choose to instead do what feels best, you could miss out on an opportunity for growth, learning and experience. 

Not only that, but if you could’ve benefited others by making a different choice, then you’re actually robbing humanity of your gifts.

Working through your difficult emotions and keeping yourself mentally fit will ultimately be more satisfying anyway because you’re fulfilling a deeper need, and that is to participate in life and contribute to society in a way that is useful and helpful in the long term.
