Seeing a Finish Line...

We've reached the dawn of a New Day! (Naples, FL 6/11)

Good news, faithful readers: we're almost finished with this round of "holy-crap-this-is-INSANE!" Mercury has gone direct and we're now in the phase of the Waxing Moon. Join me in breathing deeply and saying, Huzzah! :-)

With the moon beginning its latest journey towards fullness, though, there are still a few interesting times ahead, as the Fifth Night in the (Mayan) Ninth Wave lasts until September 5th. As the waxing moon energies are all about manifestation, a few residual Shadows may be chased from their hiding spots in the back of your psychic closet and brought to the surface of your awareness. All for the good; just deal with them as you've been dealing with the other Shadows that have been coming up, and watch as they dissolve in the light of the new day.

With the coming of the Sixth Day, you'll be able to look around and see all the mess that you might be surrounded with at the moment. (In some cases, for my friends in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic sections of the US, this may be literal! I'm holding Calm Serenity for you at this time.) The Sixth Day with shine with the light of Clear Insight, allowing you to see quite clearly what's ready for releasing, and what's truly meant to be kept in your life. In the Northern Hemisphere, call it a final cycle of Letting Go prior to receiving the Bounty of the Harvest; in the Southern Hemisphere, take advantage of this energy for some inspired Spring Cleaning!
Either way, it would be a good idea to take full advantage of this dynamic clearing and cleansing energy that's coming our way, for the next convergence of cosmic events is going to be a doozy: the energetic shifting that usually arises with the Equinox is going to happen on the exact same day that the Sixth Night begins: September 23rd! I will be joining you in getting my "house" in order...in this case, taking care of some long-overdue business! More on that very soon - if you haven't seen my excitement elsewhere, that is! ;-)


Now entering the "Opposite Sketch"

There are folks of a certain generation (or two) who will remember a show on Nickelodeon called You Can't Do That on Television. One of the regular features of the show was the "Opposite Sketch," wherein parents were absolutely permissive, and their teenaged and tweenaged children were smart and responsible - often times, more so than the parents. It was an exercise in role reversal.
Why do I mention this? Because the concept behind the Opposite Sketch is coming into play, and will be fully anchored in this reality by the weekend. I've received some clarification of the energetic processes that are unfolding around us, which can be summed up thusly: Whatever you're experiencing now, be prepared to start experiencing its opposite.

If we return for a moment to our friendly Mayan Calendar to check in, we see that tomorrow we go from the Fifth Day to the Fifth Night. As I mentioned before, this is the day where the energetic flow is going to do a complete one-eighty and move in opposite directions for the rest of this month, and a smidge into the next.

This doesn't mean that everyone is going to go from "Ah!" to "Blah!" in ten seconds or less. What this does mean: if you've been having a groovy month so far, the next few weeks might be a bit harsh. If you've been having a crappy month so far, the next few weeks might actually show some sun peeking through the dark clouds. If you've been rocking and rolling, you might come to a complete stop; but if you've been wallowing in intertia, a nudge might be on its way to get you moving again. You see my point?

One thing that I said earlier remains the same now: this is definitely the time to stand firm, stand pat, and hold on to that Positive Vision of your life, and the lives of everyone around you, like a dog grabs on to a rope and starts a game of tug-o-war. Be fierce in your convictions, and gentle in your interactions! And always check in with your body for any needed inspiration or wisdom! If you feel like you need to get outside, Go Outside - if only for a few minutes!
The good news is, Mercury isn't going to be Retrograde forever, so breathe through the weirder spots and remember that this, too, is passing - and something better is just around the corner. I'll leave you with a bit of beauty to enjoy... :-)
She knows the way up and out. (Naples, FL 6/11)


A special addendum from our Creatrix

That would be me... ;-)
In this first week of August, I am noticing the prevailing theme for this Fifth Day/Mercury Retrograde extravaganza is Awakening. Some people are Waking Up to their gifts, their possibilities, their Reality, for the very first time. Other people, who were already Awake, are finding that their spiritual gifts have suddenly been ratcheted up several notches, and/or that unexpected energies have sent their lives topsy-turvy!

Let me say first: All Is Well. Really, it IS.
Let me say second: This, Too, Shall Pass. Really, it WILL.
Breathing easier? Good.
The key for these times is to stay as centered and neutral as you can. Get out into Nature to ground and reconnect to the True Reality as much as you can. Use the tools in your psychic toolbox - and don't be surprised if some of those tools suddenly change shape, or if shiny new tools show up to be used, with pleasingly optimum effect!

Yes, Special High Intensity Transformation is happening, Right Now! You're not going crazy, though; many of us are finally going SANE.
Still confused or freaky? Look on the left side of this blog. My email address is there. We can arrange for a time to talk, on the phone or on Skype. I can help you to think outside the box...

Namaste. <3
