Solution. Overkill. Paralysis.
We are up to our frontal lobes with Swords this weekend.
This week has been rather intense for many of us, and gratefully we find ourselves at the weekend. A good thing, too, as we have quite a lot on our minds.
Because wrestling with our own thoughts is rough work, this weekend must include mindful self-care. The idea is not to avoid the mind-work before us but rather to incorporate restorative comfort into our tasks. Since we know we cannot pour from an empty cup, we must take good care. As an example, consider taking journal in hand to spend the afternoon in a favorite coffee shop, drinking a comfort beverage, jotting down some thoughts.
NOTE: You may discover things about yourself, positive or negative, you didn’t realize. Do not be alarmed by this as it seems to be the point of this energy – there are things we do not know, and must learn. May 2018 (and likely June as well),is all about this kind of personal growth and engagement; we are likely to see this energy recurring into the Summer. We will need to get comfortable with the discomfort.
PLEASE REMEMBER: You are important, you are needed, you can do it.
Enjoy the weekend.
PRACTICAL MAGIC TIP: Coffee and chocolate, in addition to being easily accessible and delicious, are instantly grounding. Use them to your advantage this weekend while you are pursuing the air energy of thoughts; remaining grounded will likely make it easier for you to see/find/create the practical aspects you will need. Ingest them with gratitude and intention, and they will surely aid you in your mind-work.
