So just as April is winding down, the energy around us is all shifting towards one of purging, cleaning, renovating, and restoring. Now, I’m not an astrology expert, but I am definitely more conscious of the shifts going on around me and this time is no different with five planets going retrograde. What that means for us though is this is potentially a time for some huge changes, and it’ll be easier for us to ride through the waves of change if we can go along with what’s coming up rather than fighting it.
It’s funny, when Snowflake Obsidian came up for today’s reading, I almost put it back because really, who wants to go inward and quiet when so much is going on all around us? It’s spring, there are things to do, places to go, etc. However, the more I sit on this, the more relevant its message is for us today – despite all the chaos, the distractions, the stresses, and the change, our first move before getting swept into that swirl is to pause, breathe, and go in. Find that place inside that brings you peace and quiet, and in that stillness, you will receive the guidance around what to do next.
This crystal is one of purification and revelation. Think of a winter night, when all is still and quiet and peaceful, the snow gently falling to the ground. Even in that dark stillness, you know that things are shifting, transforming – paving the way for a spring that will come in a few weeks or months’ time. And in that stillness, when everything is finally at a standstill, insight and inspiration can be received that much easier, so allow that to happen for you. Take that spark and begin to create something new and meaningful in your life. Let this be the beginning of a new period for you, where you can open your heart and yourself up to higher vibrations and the loving energy around you.
This retrograde period will force you to see things in a new light, make you look at the bigger picture of things. You’ll realize things that need to be changed, things that need to be released, and in the act of changing and releasing those, new paths leading you toward Love and Fulfillment and Joy will be revealed. I’m not saying this will be an easy process, but it is your choice how you go along with the change. It will always be your choice.
