Just when you think you’re going to catch a break in quarantine, then three retrogrades are coming in one week! What’s an empath to do?
PREPARE! Knowledge is power, right?
I am a firm believer that galactic and universal vibes have a strong effect on us. Energy impacts energy, after all, so obviously things like moon cycles, Schumann Resonance, eclipses, solar flares, planetary alignments and retrogrades will create a shift.
Being a sensitive my whole life, I can tell you that when I have the awareness that a potential change is on the way it helps me to manage my own vibes. It saves me from just walking around in a funk, and gives me the opportunity to use tools and techniques instead of just being in reaction and clean up mode.
I look at things like this as I do the weather report – it helps me to know what’s coming my way. If I bring my umbrella and don’t need it, even better! Don’t count on reacting the same way to each retrograde, because you won’t be the same energetic frequency you were in the past.
Here’s what’s happening this week:
Monday, May 11, 2020 – Saturn goes into Retrograde. Traditionally, this represents accountability, taking responsibility for one’s actions in all things – present, past, and future. It’s a good time dig deep and remember WHY you’re here instead of just going through the motions. Dig out your meditation pillow and focus on your mission and purpose. Keep a journal nearby to record insight that comes forward. Think of how you’re feeling, and remember YOU are responsible for how YOU feel and react – no one else has that power.
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 – Venus goes into Retrograde. This time is all about evaluating relationships, both with others and with self. How’s your self-esteem? What is worth your time and effort and what is not? How are old and new relationships working for you? Who adds to your life and who pulls at your energy? This is a great time for cutting cords with those peeps that you’ve been having low vibes with. Venture into the healing space of forgiveness and move forward into brighter light.
Thursday, May 14, 2020 – Jupiter goes into Retrograde. Jupiter’s retrograde is about how you view the world and how you view your abundance in the world. It is also about expansion and believe it or not, many people lose more weight during this particular retrograde. All these points seem fitting, right? While we are still experiencing a quarantine? This is a good time to release and manifest. Journaling, lucid dreaming, and setting long term goals are all wonderful tools to utilize.
As with all energy fluctuations, be on the lookout for: headaches, weird sleep patterns, funky dreams, body aches, and being extra sensitive. To counteract these issues, make sure to hydrate, meditate, eat grounding foods, get outside and connect with nature, and ASK YOUR GUIDES AND ANGELS FOR HELP. Remember, they won’t just take over and jump in to fix things.
Stones that are also helpful during this particular time are: kyanite, flourite, kambaba jasper, fuchsite, morganite, rose quartz, and apophyllite.
Deep breaths. We are in this together. Remember, you’re not alone.
