Navigating Cosmic Energy Changes
Have you felt as though the energy since the start of the year was a bit off? Maybe you've been feeling lethargic, irritable, or just out of sync?
If you have, it’s not surprising. As we entered the New Year, both Mars, the planet of action, and Mercury, the planet of communication, were in Retrograde. When planets are in retrograde the themes they govern don’t flow in the way we would like. We are often called to review and reflect rather than move and grow, which can be frustrating. Mercury Retrograde took place in Capricorn, our future planning sign, which really did slow down the preparations for the New Year.
How to Navigate Changes in Cosmic Energy with Ease
When tuning into your energetic vibrational frequencies, it's essential to have a strong intention. Setting a clear intention helps to focus your energy and clarify the direction of your journey. When you have an intention, you can also use it as a reference point to help gauge your progress.
Once you've set your intention, the next step is to clear out any unwanted energetic blockages. This could include negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, or other forms of resistance. Clearing out these blockages will help to create a clear energetic path for your journey.
Once you've set your intention and cleared out any energetic blockages, it's time to connect with your intuitive guidance. This could mean tuning in to your intuition, listening to your body, or engaging in some form of meditation. Connecting with your intuitive guidance will help to keep you on track and open up the energetic pathways.
Reading Supporting the Cosmic Energy Change
To help you work through the recent changes in energy, I’ve pulled some cards using the Tarot of the Everlasting Day by Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin. This reading will meet you where you are right now and guide you forward through the changing energies you are experiencing at this time.
“It’s necessary to maintain the slower pace you started the year with. Although there has been a recent energy shift, encouraging forward movement (no planets in retrograde), be careful not to go too fast and tie yourself up in knots.
It’s so easy to burn brightly at the start, but you are in this for the long haul, so pace yourself.
Big plan, goals, dreams and wishes require prolonged dedication if they are to be successful, and yes, they will be successful if you allow the energy of abundance to come in.
Consider what you determined you were not going to allow into the new year. Have you managed to keep it at bay, or has it started to sneak back in? That’s the trouble with bad habits and unwanted things, they’re sneaky.
Acknowledge where they have started to nudge back into your world, and do what you have already done once before to banish them again. It’s okay that this takes more than one go to get it right.
If you were to look at a map of your next 12 months, what type of map would it be?
Is it something modern and colour coordinated, like a map of the London Underground? Or perhaps it’s old fashioned, where unknown regions talk of dragons. Focus on your map and consider your next steps. What does your intuition tell you about where to go next? How does your journey align with your resources, values and ambitions?
- Take a moment to pause.
- Consider this guidance.
- Journal what comes up for you.
- And continue on your journey”
