If somehow you missed it scrolling through your IG, facebook and news feeds yesterday it’s that time again when communication is wonky, electronics go haywire, and our internal GPS seems to steer us astray. Yes, yes you know it as Mercury retrograde.
This retrograde coincides with the new moon, so while it could feel a bit overwhelming we promise that while the ruler of communication is moving backwards, inner reflection and positive self-talk will go a long way in helping you get through this month.
Here is Violet Guide’s reading for us.
The Signifying Card is pulling the energy of the Six of Swords - in the darkness of this new moon, you really start to comprehend the reasons why you’ve laid down those negative thoughts and experiences that have kept you blocked. This is a “hope at last” feeling to lean into the rainbow of thankfulness for seeing the truth and then taking action over it from this past cycle.
Take the time to look inwardly to really pause and soak up the knowledge you have learned.
We have the Sun and the Three of Swords. This is specifically going into the full enlightenment of undoing the Swords that kept you in a bondage. This bondage tied us up and kept us in a perpetual cycle.
Now we have the keys to unlock the bondage and really undo; this is a huge push through on fully understanding why you were tied to people and what magnetized that. Finally we are breaking away from that trauma cycle that was alive with those two people we’ve discussed in past readings.
Our Power Roots are The Magician and The Ace of Swords. The Ace of Swords is all about mental clarity and a new way of looking and interpreting situations in your life.
You take that power back into your own body instead of worrying about the thinking of others.
The Magician is all about understanding that you have everything you need inside of you. You do not need those people that kept you down.
You have your cups of your community back, your pentacles of how you invest and spend your energy, your wands of your goals and gifts and your swords of tongue and thoughts back into your body.
Those are your power thoughts to keep in the front of your mind. Keep that sunshine in the front of your mind.
Body, Mind Spirit
Collectively your body is finally letting those things die off and decompose. You can actually feel your body letting those thoughts and traumas fall away from your body. Your mind is letting the negative charmer energy break off your body in how you use to view that person that magnetized you in the first place.
You are restoring your own attraction in your mind, and your spirit is showing there has been a lot of empathy pouring out recharging your own personal business, as well. Over all this is a huge release and restoration that is being replaced in your body.
Two New Cycles Manifesting Healing
The recharge of replacement energy is the freedom of the Six of Wands manifesting with the Mother of Pentacles. The cycle sheds light on how you have learned to parent your own inner child with empathy. This has created the most freeing energy inside! Empathize with yourself.
The second recharge is to continue to see and sacrifice learned roots from your childhood with the Six of Cups. As you see where things started and manifested that are negative in your life, the quicker you can call them out and replace them with a behavior that pushes you into the Temperance card of healing!
Keep letting that fire and water mixture come down as the healing waters keep circulating. This cycle is all about growing you in your career and into your gifts. You are going to feel the tension of the change of energy - growing pains. It is causing you to be wiser and more aware of what you want in your life and how to manifest it.
The Nine of Pentacles is still saying to protect yourself, protect your energy because your Son of Wands youthful reawakening is still charging up. While on the other side of your balance is the Strength card with the Daughter of Wands so as you face that pain your feminine balance is recharging this youthful awakening as well.
You are still mastering this journey and still manifesting the Three of Pentacles so trust who is journeying with you in opening the awareness. Be thankful for facing your pain and regaining a new part of yourself.
Happy new moon,
