The bumpy ride continues this month, beginning with a new moon and solar eclipse and Mercury Retrograde all happening at the same time. For those who don’t know about this or have no interest, it still applies to you as you may notice weird occurrences happening around you, like phone calls dropping, being late or missing appointments, transportation issues, etc.
So really, what do you do when things seem to be spiraling out of control for you? Do you press on and try to keep going, even if (though hopefully not) things continue to worsen? Or do you stop, take heed that there might be a message around these instances that you should look for?
For example, yesterday at work, after lunch, I was hit with a huge wall of sluggishness. I got up to walk around and it truly felt like I was heavy and that the air around me was that much thicker. Odd pains that I hadn’t felt in a long time, years even, were suddenly being felt sporadically throughout the day. My day and lunch wasn’t anything outside of normal so I couldn’t attribute any of these feelings to that.
Instead, I listened to my body and after I got home from work, I decided to do something I hadn’t done for awhile but had been meaning to do. I took my dog out for a walk in our neighborhood to get some fresh air and movement back into my body. That did the trick. The fog cleared from my mind, the aches went away, and Zahra and I were able to enjoy each other’s company on a lovely, sunny afternoon.
Sometimes, it takes doing something just outside your comfort level to snap you out of it. To help during those times though and when a walk around the block isn’t quite feasible in the moment, remember to get grounded anyway. Ruby comes to help connect you and your heart deeply with the earth in love. And when you get yourself grounded and centered, open up your mind’s eye and see if there’s something there for you to take away, a message from your intuition and your guides. See what comes up and take that message to heart, following what you’re being guided to do. And then let me know how that turns out – I’d love to hear your stories.
