The Sun has moved into the liberating sign of Aquarius so one would imagine things would start to feel somewhat less Saturnine, moving into a lighter, airier, more open consciousness. So many things are going on simultaneously in the cosmos that depending on your own personal chart you will be feeling the paradigm shifts and swells of movement in your own unique way.
Liberation is not always an easy process because in the process of liberating yourself you will have to look into some nasty, dark corners of your life and be willing to release anything or anyone that does not serve to support your freedom.
I'm doing this myself and it has brought me to my knees - and to the couch for a major lie-down.
Releasing relationships that confine and limit you, letting go of old thought patterns and emotional habits that keep you in the old ways, and even perhaps moving or changing your job from work to a calling. Whatever changes you need to make in your life can feel gargantuan to you. It is of critical importance that you do not judge yourself in the process of evaluating what is working for you and what is truly not. Discernment is needed, judgment is not. Easier said than done, but worth working towards.
If you are also going through your Saturn return (Saturn is in Scorpio so if you were born with Saturn in Scorpio you will be somewhere in your Saturn return) or Saturn is moving through sensitive points in your chart (like crossing your ascendant) you can be
sure you will be doing MAJOR clearing out. Sometimes the clearing is done for you - a friend passes or moves, you are fired from your job, you need to move. Saturn will have you facing your responsibilities and commitments head on. Just remember when Saturn moves through Scorpio you will be working in deep emotional realms and releasing much that has been obscured or hidden from view. That is the most painful stuff to dislodge. But as you clear away the debris you may be very surprised at the view.
Look to Jupiter for support. Use the expansive energy of Jupiter in the light and airy sign of Gemini to gather information that buoys and lightens your spirit.
If you get caught in the vortex of Saturnine seriousness it can be a very difficult road out of that quagmire. Actively pursue experiences that bring a smile to your face and laughter to your soul. Jupiter is trining the Sun-Mercury conjunction opening your mind to endless possibilities. Uranus in Aries sextiles this combo adding more innovation and genius to the mix.
Liberation is good but getting to full liberation can be quite the ride. Sometimes I just cannot figure out how to get from here to there and that's when Neptune in Pisces can help: let go. Surrender to your not knowing and just follow Higher Guidance as it speaks softly and assuredly to you. John and I have been chatting a lot about INTUITION as we so want everyone to know and use this invaluable navigational tool. We have been talking about INSTINCT and how using one's intuition is an instinctual, go-to, process but because so many of us are disconnected from Nature, and from our own nature, the natural instinct to follow one's Higher Guidance is obscured by the intellect and rational, limited thought. We are in the process of publishing a book on just this, which is a momentous process in and of itself - talk about Saturn kicking my butt to complete this book!
During these challenging times of release, letting go, surrender, and rebuilding using one's INTUITION, one's INSTINCT, is the MOST effective tool for the job. If you were unable to be LIVE on John's Reclaim Your Intuition tele-class all that invaluable information is available for you to work on anytime at all. More info on the class at Reclaim Your Intuition.
An excellent crystal to keep your brain running smoothly and clearly is AMETHYST.Place above your head while you are sleeping and near your head during the day. For extra help from the crystal world, place the amethyst right on your forehead. Ask the crystal to help you keep clear-minded, connecting to and activating your own personal genius.
Here's John superactivating his brain. I can feel him getting smarter moment by moment!
