Sun transits Gate 25 moves to Gate 17
The bumpy emotional weather continues this week. You might not want to come out of your pillow fort just yet…
I want to start this week with a review of the Nodes. The Nodes set the theme or the “plot outline” for our personal and collective narrative. The South Node represents what we need to understand and learn from in order to move into the theme of the North Node.
With the South Node being in the Gate 5, we are exploring our habits and asking ourselves if our habits are truly creating the experiences we desire. Do our lives reflect the values we’ve been realigning and the integrity that we’ve been cultivating over the past few months?
This exploration is inviting is to drill down to the foundation of the rhythm of our daily lives and to explore whether our habits and practices are helping us build what we want in our lives.
The North Node in the Gate 35 says that we can be more fulfilled, create beyond our old, outdated patterns and habits and cultivate new experiences that better match our intentions when we shift our habits and patterns to support creating something new and expanding our potential for new experiences.
I think sometimes a different, more gentle way to look at “habits” is to explore our habits through the lens of “order”. Are we being orderly in our lives?
This ISN’T about having a clean and minimalistic life. This is about exploring whether there is an order to how your life works and whether this order is feeding your ability to fulfill who you are and what you want to create in your life.
We are asking ourselves whether we need to cultivate a different kind of order in our lives that feeds the fulfillment of our Heart’s Priorities and our Soul?
If we’re going to get practical and grounded with this exploration, the planets are asking us to explore the concept of “order” in 5 core areas of our life:
- Our Lifestyle – Is your home and the way in which you live orderly? Is there an easy flow through which you can build and create within the confines of your home? This is certainly a big one for many of us as we are still working and living a somewhat reclusive lifestyle in our homes.
- Your Spiritual Connection – Is your relationship with Source in order? Do you have an orderly and consistent practice that supports you in your growth and in taking big leaps of faith?
- Your Body and Yourself – Is your relationship with yourself in order? Do you eat well, take care of your body, exercise, rest and nurture yourself? Do you put your self-care first as a way of building a strong foundation for your life?
- Relationships – Are you showing up for your relationships? Do you make time? Are you valuing and acknowledging your partners and friends? Is there anything you need to do to strengthen your relationships?
- Work and Creative Fulfillment – These two don’t always go together so be sure you explore the “order” in both of these areas of your life. Is your work brining you the support and the fulfillment you need? If not, how can you create more order so that your work is more aligned with your purpose and your fulfillment?
Take some time this week to ask yourself these hard questions. We have plenty of time to make the changes necessary. If you feel like you’re totally out of order with yourself, don’t try to change everything at once. Take baby steps and make one change a week. Pick the area that you feel is the most foundational for you.
For me, I have to always start with my relationship with Source. If I’m “out of order” in this area of my life, nothing else falls into place. My spiritual disorder causes me to create from a place of using will power I don’t have to hustle and push things into place until I’m depleted. Order, for me, is an essential part of maximizing my potential and the fulfillment of my purpose.
Spiritual order allows me to be receptive to the coherent guidance that is available to me when I’m not distracted by chaos and misalignment.
But, that’s me. You have your own exploration and understanding about what you need to cultivate.
These personal explorations will further enhance our collective work of putting the bigger picture – the infrastructure – of our reality together in new ways that better reflect the new evolved values that we’ve been cultivating this past year.
We are being supported in creating “order” by the intense collaboration of Saturn in the Gate 19, the Gate of Attunement and Jupiter in Gate 49, the Gate of the Catalyst, defining the entire Channel of Intimacy and Connection.
This configuration brings us the potential for creating intimate emotional connections that support, nurture and expand with the right emotional frequency.
We are learning to use emotional energy to maintain or sustain intimacy and connection to each other. We are also learning how to commit and endure with the right emotional energy that supports relationships which reflect our true value and values.
This is a pretty intense, emotional theme that might have many of us fighting for or blowing up our old relationship agreements. We are being invited to let go of co-dependent partnerships, partnership agreements that no longer fit who we are and crafting new ways to be in partnership with each other that are sustainable and enduring.
This theme is playing out everywhere and continues to force us to have to reckon with the idea that we are all inextricably and intricately entangled with each other. There is no way out of the fact that our individual actions impact all of us.
This energy also makes us very sensitive and gives us the Big Feels about pretty much everything.
Take deep breaths before you speak and blow things up. Make sure your communications are deliberate and not reactive. Take some extra time to soothe your nervous system before you do or say something that is unkind or not helpful.
The relationship negotiations we enter into with this energy have the capacity to give us a new “operating system” that can, ultimately, give us greater longevity, sustainability, empathy, compassion and support in our personal and collective relationships.
This week the Sun starts in the Gate 25, the Gate of Spirit, moving to the Gate 17, the Gate of Anticipation.
We start the week with good intentions grounded in our connection to our Higher Self and purpose. We feel aligned and connected to Source, preparing ourselves to take our higher purpose and intentions out into the world – and into our relationships…
As the Sun moves into the Gate 17 on Wednesday, if we’re not careful and deeply rooted in exploring how to fulfill our good intentions, we may end up feeling critical of our partners and wanting to correct them instead of pointing our focus inward and exploring how we can better implement the intentions we started the week off with.
The Gate 17 teaches us to use the power of our minds to explore potentials and possibilities that stretch our ideas about what else is possible in the human condition. In its highest expression we are using our thoughts to inspire others to think bigger and bolder and setting the stage for creating energy that expands potential.
With the Earth moving from the Gate 46, the Gate of Embodiment to the Gate 18, the Gate of Re-Alignment on Wednesday, the theme of the Sun in Gate 17 is accentuated by the Earth giving us the shadow potential of justifying our opinions and feeling compelled to correct others instead of taking a nice walk to the bathroom mirror and exploring where WE perhaps need to change our own thinking patterns and expand our perspectives to be more loving, more inclusive, more compassions and empathetic.
All of this while we are feeling super emotional with Saturn and Jupiter playing out their big emotional themes, makes for a week where we are either exploring new patterns and possibilities with our loved ones or we’re criticizing and bloviating opinions all over the place that have the potential to pack a mean punch to those we love if we’re not careful.
The bathroom mirror is your Best Friend this week. Don’t say anything to anyone else until you’ve said it out loud to yourself first and see if the real “source” of your frustration, anger, bitterness or disappointment is your own perspective and limiting point of view.
Yes, I’ve been showing you the shadow of all of these energies, which I don’t like to focus on too much, but I think knowing the potential bumps in the road this week is essential.
Let’s end this Evolution Report on a high note.
We are rewriting old scripts about our relationships and how we want to renew our relationship agreements. We’re elevating our agreements, breaking old patterns and exploring new ways to create more enduring, loving, intimate and powerful partnerships that reflect not only our own value and values, but the value and values of those we love.
This is a powerful week to deepen your intimate connections with each other, to yourself and with your Right Place in the Cosmic Plan.
Make sure you don’t hide out from the work ahead. Be honest, clear and compassionate. Take deep breaths and communicate from your Heart.
Take good care of yourselves and each other.
From my Heart to Yours,
