Right now, the energies are aligned with releasing our entrenched ways of thinking and being and allowing the sacred work of the heart to guide us toward healing, renewal, and transformation in the present.
Let’s check in about what’s happening in the “as above.” Currently, Pluto is retrograde, and 5 planets are aligned in Pisces. This emotional, shadowy realm of activity can feel a bit chaotic and emotional. But we are gifted with a Mercury retrograde cycle which can be utilized to help us work with the communication and commerce issues resulting in the “as below.”
Starting now, Mercury is retrograde in Gemini from now until June 3 and currently lies halfway between Aldebaron, and the Pleiades, stars of importance to the ancient alchemists. In this position, Mercury retrograde gives us the “renegade” energy we need to ride the waves of change.
Our heart’s desire and soul’s purpose are meant to guide us at this time. Our ability to manifest the life and right livelihood we truly desire can more easily be manifested if we are willing to co-create with the vital energies.
My friend Cayelin Castell was part of a recent roundtable discussion about these energies here: https://youtu.be/1FrslzMMu3I
The door opened to the freshly untethered realm of heart-centered possibility with the solar eclipse and Beltane window 10 days ago, and it will extend until the full lunar eclipse on May 15.
To truly incorporate these energies, consider raising your personal frequency while slowing down the pace, using activities like gardening, dancing or working magic to enhance your daily experiences at this time.
As those insights begin to be received, we need to allow ourselves to remain in awareness and without judgment. Remember, heart over mind. Mercury allows us the time and support we need to question our perceptions and surf the wild renegade wave until it goes direct on June 3.
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche called this “crazy wisdom” expression, as Cayelin points out. In times of “crazy wisdom,” we find ourselves fully present and, in the moment, awakened, fresh perceptions, and unbound by our pasts or futures. If we remove our understanding from the context of time and history, our current reality drops away. Thus, we are free to perceive truths which lie beyond culture or society. We listen with our hearts.
