Simple, Difficult Lessons

 

 

The biggest lessons often involve daily life. They are about becoming conscious during repetitious and emotional activities. The lessons also have to do with our perception of light–and the world. (They also teach us how to blend the current self and the higher self in many aspects of life.)

If you’re encountering these lessons and feelings, it simply means you are awakening and moving into a higher level of self-development. Observe often and love yourself for your courage and fortitude!

  1. Moving more deeply into trust. Trust that the universe is taking care of you. Your higher self can always find the path and lead you into a place of peace, safety, and comfort. (When life is difficult, move into the inner self. Listen to your intuition. Make an active effort based on your inner voice, heart, or another feeling.)
  2. Your light is growing. You feel more of it when you meditate, and you find your light when you’re upset. Some days, everything falls into place. You find easier to understand other people’s point of view—even when you don’t agree. You know everything is changing for the better despite how the world might appear. (It takes time for spiritual creations to move into form.)
  3. Invisible connections. When you meditate, you feel others who are doing the same. Periodically, you sense the light of many other people in the world. Love and light flow through you. You think about a small problem, and someone (or something) provides the answer.
  4. Soul Contracts. People are moving in and out of your life. A soul contract is an agreement to meet a specific person during this lifetime. It includes children, spouses, parents, friends, and enemies. There is always a strong pull. Generally, it’s about resolving issues, growing into greater love, offering support, and working through emotions (both good and bad). It’s an almost inexplicable attraction/repulsion between individuals. (In soul contracts, one person may grow, and the other doesn’t move into love. Growth can also come from negative people, which results in creating boundaries. You may also move into greater love and strength. Regardless, there is always a feeling of “fate”.
  5. Accept the alternating energies. Nothing moves or happens as it did in the past. The sun and moon are often on a different course. Patterns of nature and the weather are changing. Overall, the changes can aid with spiritual growth because you cannot repeat the same actions at the same time every day. But you can hold fast to your practices. You can send light to others and the world. (Sleeping and eating patterns are changing. Listen within for guidance.)
  6. Listen with your heart. Softer emotions are replacing anger, fear, and judgement. You’re learning to pause before speaking. You’re beginning to realize how life moves in a different rhythm when you listen and respond. You experience an uplifting sensation of happiness when acting on your inner instruction.
  7. Sense the invisible world. You have moments of knowing. Beneath the appearance of the physical world, energy moves. It’s invisible and powerful. It speaks through intuition, and you’re tapping into it. You realize that person didn’t mean what they said, or the news is diverting your attention. You open the window and feel nature calling to you. You suddenly know who will call you or how the day will move. You know how to find a higher vibration (some of the time) and shift the circumstances that are flowing around you.

Embracing Light

 

When we focus on light, the universe sends more light. When we contemplate light, we begin to understand how it works and lends support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicities, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.

Universal direction comes when we take time to connect with our soul. It may come from meditation, nature, animals, personal love, or creativity. If we recognize the “expansion”, we can create a great deal from this place—particularly with visualization.

Life responds to our visualizations, placement of consciousness, and attention. When we give attention to negative states or unwanted aspects of life, they expand. Conversely, positive thoughts and visualizations raise our vibration, creating the opposite. (It’s helpful to think of difficult areas of life as energy and to send light to them.)

By observing our personal patterns, we can alter them by changing the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focusing on a positive outcome or different response, and asking the universe for help. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for light and new perceptions of our problems. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.

Here are a few tips:

  1. When the focus is on awakening, we turn to the infinite source of energy, the universe. When we are connected to the inner self, we have more energy and enthusiasm about life. Essentially, we experience a rebirth through inner connection.
  2. It’s good to review our positive changes by noticing greater awareness, sensitivity, and intuitive changes.  We experience more of the object of our attention. (Life responds to attention and focus.)
  3. It’s helpful not to think we don’t want “something” in our lives. It’s better to visualize a positive change and act on it. It’s also positive to think of difficult areas in life as energy. We simply work to change and alter the energy.  (Energy can be changed through color, sound, or visualization. Our energy moves into a higher vibration when we use these techniques.)
  4. By noticing happiness, positive feelings, and goodness, we create more of them. When we focus on the good in life, we encounter more of it. (Experiment:  While waiting in line, focus on one good thing about a stranger and see how they respond. It may take one or two tries, but you’ll receive a positive response.)
  5. Make positive wishes and visualize often. When we see results clearly in our mind, we create them. Believe in the power of the inner self, which always perceives the beautiful, amazing side of life.

Working with Light and the World

 

When tragedy strikes the earth through natural disasters or violence, our vibrations lower in response to the occurrence. We may feel sad, discouraged, or tired as result. However, it’s necessary to raise our vibrations into universal love to create a change in the pattern of world events.

Here are a few tips.

  1. Acknowledge the emotion and experience it for a few hours. As we move into light, we become more empathetic and intuitive, and it’s natural to feel the pain of other human beings as well as the trauma of a specific location. (We can’t put our heads in the sand, and it is necessary to sense some of the global feelings.)
  2. Pull back from the feelings after a few hours. Go for a walk. Distract the mind if possible.
  3. Send light in general way such as seeing a pink cloud over the area. Ask the universe to help in healing victims, comforting families, or healing the earth. Do not focus intensely on the area. (As we become more intuitive, the area will radiate information, and this makes it more difficult to send healing or love.)
  4. Heal the self. Rest and meditate on higher vibrations and the feeling of connection. Ask for universal light and to vibrate above the situation.
  5. Limit reading or listening to news about the event. Don’t make political comments about the event. Post and share any positive outcomes, articles about higher vibrations, faith, and love.
  6. When many of us can consistently hold a higher vibration, everything will change. Certainly, we feel the pain of negative events in the world, but we can try to move into the light as often as possible. We can share a positive attitude with others. It’s how we shine our light!
  7. When possible, make donations to help others.

New Energies: A New Way of Life

Everyone is feeling the shift–the motion of photons into new patterns, the alteration of life on the planet, and subtle changes within our perception of life. Sometimes, it’s helpful to recognize aspects of the shift. By simply observing, you become more aware.
1) Everyone desired change when the Mayan calendar ended. We’re experiencing change NOW as the earth shifts. It’s best to stay in the awareness of knowing you are a creator. You have unique abilities to manifest positive change, love, and goodness in this world. (You probably also have the ability to protect the area around you and bring in greater health and vitality to the world.)
2) If you’re awakening, it’s incredibly important to develop your gift as a person who manifests and creates change. Begin with your life. (It’s not about the “things” or objects created through manifestation; it’s about learning to use your universal gift of talents and abilities. Your gifts will come into form if you persevere.)
3) Intuition is growing at a rapid rate as you discover your inner voice and presence. Intuition is affected by thoughts, emotions, and encounters. There is a big difference between intuition derived through meditation and intuition from the outer self. (Discernment is key. Feeling tired or emotional can cause a misread.)
4) Energy moves differently. Our emotions, thoughts, and perceptions of life change with the energetic flow. It can come on hourly or daily basis, plunging us into a higher or lower state. The interesting part of the shift is understanding our inner power to alter the placement of our vibrations. We can focus on pink light or imagine ourselves in a higher state of being. (This works in minutes, hours, or days, depending on the focal point of consciousness.)
5) The same energetic aspect applies to health, which can vary from highly energized to exhaustion. The shift in health can relate to activities, people in our lives, diet, or emotional issues. We are clearing a great deal of energy, and it affects our energy. Sometimes, we sleep more because of the increase in light. We may not remember our dreams because we are processing energy, or we may need a break from the energy of mass consciousness. (It’s helpful to see ourselves as happy, healthy, and energized.)
6) As you clear timelines (relationships, karma/trauma, and events from the past), your perception alters. You may have compassion where you lacked understanding, create boundaries where you had none in the past, or feel greater love for the self. You may also find greater courage and trust. (This can involve dropping old friends and connections while finding new ones.)
7)  You know a Bigger Force is at play, and it wants the best for you. There is a deep realization of the power of letting go while tuning into this beautiful energy of love and light, which guides you into inspired action.  (On the light worker level, there is an understanding that we share our light best when we align with our true presence. It doesn’t matter if we work from 9-5 and/or where we work. Wherever we are, we lift up the world by aligning with our inner presence.)

Speaking with Your Angels

Here, Trudy Griswold tells us how it’s done — including an effective  21 day program for learning to receiving clear messages from our guides on a daily basis.

Julia: How do we begin to open to the angelic or divine realms and experience our higher consciousness?

Trudy: This begins with willingness. The beings in this realm want to help us. Most of us can’t see, feel, or hear the angels. However, simply understanding or knowing that they are there is the first step. The angels can teach us to align with our higher consciousness when we begin with this first step.

Once we have attained this knowing that the divine realm exists and is there to help us, there are four steps that can be followed for angelic guidance. These four steps have literally changed my entire life. I have a partnership with my divine group and a true guidance system. My life is so much better. I worry less, and I am so much happier.

The formula for divine guidance is as follows:

    1. Asking is the first step. The angels want to help us, but they cannot help unless we first ask. Learn to ask for what it is that you want or for guidance in whatever problem you need help with. Be very specific. Write down as many details as possible.
    2. The second step is timing. The angels have their own timing. A problem will be resolved at the correct time. Answers always come at the right time.
    3. Letting go is the third step. Let the problem go completely. Let it happen, let the angels flow through
    4. Saying “thank you” is the fourth step. An attitude of gratitude keeps the flow moving. When we are grateful, the energy moves on this wave of appreciation.

The first step comes through the intellect as it forms the question and specifies the details.

The second step comes through the heart — we trust with our hearts that the answer comes at the right time.

The third step comes through the solar plexus as we let go of the emotions surrounding this center.

The fourth step is gratitude for the help that completes the process and lets it flow into action.

Julia: I’m curious. When we ask, how detailed should we make the request?

Trudy: You should be absolutely specific. For example, if you want a new car, don’t just request “a new car.” There are many, many cars in our Universe, and when you ask for a new car, the angels aren’t sure which one you want. Ask for something specific; e.g., “a red 6-cylinder BMW with black upholstery.”

You may wonder why I used a BMW as an example? This is because I wish to deal with the fact that many of us believe it’s selfish to ask for good things, things that make us happy. We’ve been led to believe that we don’t need material possessions. But God and the angels want us to have every single thing that is good.

We can have material possessions without being greedy or selfish. It’s proper to ask for love, a wonderful job, and material possessions. It’s not selfish to want good things for ourselves. God and the angels want to share these wonderful things with us.

At the end of your specific request, you should always add that you are asking for “this or something better.” The Universe may have a better person, car, or job in mind for you, and adding those words to your request leaves the door open.

There is so much goodness in the Universe. It’s just waiting for everyone, but we cannot have what we do not ask for. Learning how to ask is such an important step!

It’s also important to remember that God never gives half of a gift. If you ask for a job in San Francisco, and the job comes, then you need to realize that you will be taken care of as you make each step. God will help you relocate, move, and find new friends. Each step that we make forward will be held in place by the support we have asked for and been given.

Julia: In your books, you say it is very effective to learn how to receive messages through the angels by writing. Can you explain that technique to me?

Trudy: First of all, you can say a prayer before you start the exercises, and ask the angels to be with you. Prayer wraps us in protection.

The angels also tell me that when we breathe deeply after asking for their presence, they come to us through our breathing. We become open when we breathe deeply, and the angels can actually come through every part of our bodies.

After doing this, “see” your guidance group gathered around you, and now start writing a letter to yourself from the angels:

Your letter might start, “Dear Julia, We love you and _____________.” You would just start writing the words that come into your consciousness or heart. The message is in your inner knowing. It will not come through the intellect.

We have found that most people are not clairvoyant or clairaudient, but that many are clairsentient. They will have a sensation of knowing that becomes more and more frequent. It is matter of “knowing what you know.”

If you find yourself thinking that the information is something you have known deeply within yourself for a long time, that is correct. We plan our lives in great detail before we ever arrive on Earth. We choose our parents, our siblings, and the time that we arrive and depart — and then we forget it all. So we’ve created this wonderful plan we can no longer remember.

Those who are in spirit, like the angels, can see the bigger picture and share it with us. The angels are not limited by a third-dimensional body, as we are. When we pray or commune with the angels, they help us to align again with our own plan. So it is natural that the messages should seem familiar.

Julia: How can one discern between “making up” the messages and knowing that they are messages of the Higher Self or the angels?

Trudy: First of all, practice is important. We ask that everyone in the beginning will write the letters for twenty-one days. It takes twenty-one days to establish a habit. That’s the reason for the stipulation.

As you become accustomed to asking for guidance, you will begin to notice a difference in the phrasing of the words and sentences as they come through the angels. There is also the resonance or inner knowing that I spoke of earlier. You will begin to develop an awareness of the difference in the messages.

Julia: Should we ask for the names of the angels who are helping us?

Trudy: You may ask for an angel’s name, and you may feel that the name you receive is familiar to you. There are groups of angels that guide us through our entire lives and stay with us all the time, so it’s not surprising that you would feel a sense of familiarity.

The names are sometimes unfamiliar, too — they may be comprised of syllables and be representative of a group of angels that is helping you.

If you feel that you need a name and that it this would be helpful to you, then you should ask for one. But you don’t always need a name — it is possible to receive the guidance that you need just by feeling the presence of the angel.

Julia: You spoke of your guidance group. How do they differ from the angels? Is this a group of angels?

Trudy: When I speak of an angel, I am speaking about masters, spirit guides, angels, teachers — all those who are on the other side. They have similar emanations, as they are in the angelic realm — a place of “good,” a place without polarity — and they all wish to help us attain our greater good. The guidance system can consist of many of these beings.

People who have passed on often can help those of us who remain on Earth. They are very much with us in spirit, and often work with family members to share their larger perspective of freedom and love.

Julia: I have noted that in working toward higher consciousness, it is not uncommon to find blocks within the self that hold us in an old, negative position — and yet it is painful to encounter them, and easy to become discouraged when this happens. What do you advise?

Trudy: Finding and achieving balance is one of the most difficult and important tasks on this planet. We all construct or assemble our reality in accordance to the happiest and saddest times in our lives. When we move toward happiness, we encounter the parts of us that are enmeshed in the sad times.

Unhappiness simply teaches us what we don’t want. For instance, if you were born into a family that was unloving, then you will want to create love in your life. If your job makes you feel unhappy, then you need to create another job. This is the way in which we identify the direction in which we should flow.

Yet our consciousness often tends to gravitate on unhappiness. People may tell you all day long how beautiful you are — compliment your makeup or hair or clothes — and then one person comes along and tells you that your hair looks terrible, and for the rest of the day you “play” that one negative comment.

We tend to focus on negativity instead of the good. You have to let goodness flow through you and walk in the knowledge that you are an integral part of God’s plan.

These experiences of happiness and unhappiness, of good and bad, are reflections of polarity — the state of movement between opposites on this plane. When we leave negativity behind, it means moving through the blocks that have caused our unhappiness. It is difficult, because we are trying to flow toward being positive and yet we are experiencing the negativity underlying the old situation.

It is essential to realize that these challenges are part of spiritual growth. This difficult learning is vital in opening the doors to our good. People often think that spirituality is magic. It’s not. It involves real work on the physical plane.

The angels say that as one door is closing we are walking toward a door that is opening — but it can be hell waiting in the hall for the new door to open. We simply have to trust that the door is going to open. We have to be patient and let go.

While we wait, we should get busy and do what we love. Create joy in whatever way we can.

Also, the angels say that if we really want change, we should clean our house. And I do mean this literally. Physically clean your house!

Julia: Do you have any tips on patience and waiting while living through challenges? These are difficult soul qualities to develop.

Trudy: Sometimes, we need help with our challenges. We have to ask, “How can I let go of this challenge? How can I make my mind stop thinking about this?” The answer is to ask the angels for help, while knowing that we are being supported through the challenge.

You go through the four steps that I outlined, and ask, “What do I really want in a new relationship? What I do really want in a new job?” You ask for help, and you write down everything you can think of that you want in the relationship or job.

After you have called the angels in, you become patient. When the time is right, the plan will unfold precisely.

It’s like sending a letter. You write the letter, putting all of your passion and hopes in the letter, and you put it in an envelope and mail it. But after you mail it, you don’t stand there and wait for the postman. You don’t demand that the postman guarantee that the letter be delivered, or worry about whether the letter reaches its destination. You simply trust that it will.

It works in the same way with the angels. You have to trust that the angels will take care of your challenges.

Another important point is to know that you will be given work in the physical world each day. We have to do our work, because we live in the physical world, and we can only work one day at a time.

It’s important to stay out of the future. When we look at the future, our fear starts to build. Instead, we take one step at a time, let go, and say thank you.

So the secret to a spiritual life is staying present, doing the physical work, and remaining patient while having faith that the angels are helping.

Julia: Much of the advice you have received from angels seems practical, involving day to day matters. Is this true?

Trudy: Yes, it is. We can only live one day at a time. That is absolutely the most any of us can handle. So you may receive information about bills or cleaning your house or exercising. The angels are highly practical and may give you information about your house or children.

The angels have to teach us how to live in each day more fully and wholly. We have to learn how to live correctly in the physical body and the physical world. Living in this way teaches us balance, and it brings clarity, spirituality, and joy into our lives.

Whatever we are living from day to day is our lifework. This is the way in which we develop a spiritual life. It is the way that life unfolds.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Trudy: In the beginning, the angels told me that the most important thing was love. I thought, “Oh, this is easy. I love my husband. I love my children. I love my friends. I can do this.”

But then the angels told me that self-love is the type of love they meant — developing a capacity for loving yourself more fully. Through learning to love ourselves, we learn to love each other more. Through love of self, we change our physical habits, such as food or exercise. We establish boundaries. We learn to listen to our greater truth and our inner guidance.

This is the real lesson we have come to learn. I say to myself each day, “Thy will be done.” I try to feel God’s flow for me in each day. And I take it one day at a time and remind myself that the best is yet to come.

7 Simple Tips for Finding the Inner Self

 

Our higher connection can drop with a small misunderstanding, a long day, or the energy of mass consciousness. Fortunately, it’s easy to raise our vibration by connecting with the inner self. (It only takes a few moments, and the practices become more effective over time.)

  1. A higher version of you–and your higher vision of life–actually exist when you tap into a different frequency. Think of frequencies like radio stations. Tap into the right vibratory rate for by asking for a higher version of yourself and a visual of a higher version of a particular situation and/or aspect of your life.
  2. Take a few moments to remember who you truly are. Remember the good parts of yourself. Think about your talents, how you love others, and what you like about yourself.
  3. Send love (universal love) as pink light to yourself. Imagine a ray of pink light illuminating the space around you. See every particle in the room spins more rapidly in the light. Ask for the presence of your inner self. (Universal love is a higher vibration, and you’re actively pulling it into your field.)
  4. Ask to clear any lower vibrations from other people in your surrounding area as well as your energy field. Imagine the energies dissolving and disappearing. (Sometimes, other people–their feelings and thoughts–are the cause of a lower vibration.)
  5. Concentrating on blessings can bring a positive shift. Notice the goodness in your life. You may want things to change (drastically), but give thanks while you imagine a new and better life. Your emotional state influences manifestation, and everything changes more rapidly when you’re in a positive state.
  6. Focus on the qualities that you like in other people and send pink light to them. The universe loves it when you think about “goodness” and send any form of love.
  7. Nature restores the soul. Take a long walk or sit outside and watch the motion of trees. Think about it feels when you are living in a higher vibration—how life moves differently and how you feel love and light. Sit on the earth and meditate on these images for a few minutes. (It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work. It will eventually change everything!)

Earth Patterns

 

As a child, I learned the patterns of clouds, seasons, the motion of the moon, and meaning of dew on the grass. Nature spoke in an immutable language of signs, which never changed—and spoke of the future in a thousand ways. But the earth is changing, and the signs no longer hold their former wealth of information.

The sun and moon rise in different locations. There are unseasonable patterns. Fall comes early, perennial plants bloom in fall rather than spring, and storms and fires fill the continent. Globally, we’re experiencing solar flares, rising oceans, and a fluctuating magnetic field. The planet is taking on the matrix of a new pattern.

Part of the new pattern is the return of the wolves. (When I first met them, their numbers were smaller. They said the resurgence of their population was associated with a positive change as well as the turning of the planet and stars.) The four-leggeds and the creatures of the ocean also send waves of songs to support us.

In alchemical writings, there are notes indicating the elementals (the creatures ruling the kingdoms of fire, air, water, and earth) respond to the moods and thoughts of awakening human beings. As we awaken our energy level soars, and the acceleration of consciousness amplifies any imbalance in the emotional, mental, or physical realm of humans. As our energy increases and expands, nature acts as a balancing force by releasing emotion through storms and flames.

With many people awakening at this particular time, the planet’s reaction is not surprising. Earth is likely reflecting the oscillation of emotions and thoughts of many people at one time. As we increase our consciousness and light, our feelings and emotions often become more intense.

I’m sharing my thoughts below, which are simply based on observation.

  1. Storms and rain can reflect our inner condition; they can also clear our inner and outer condition. (Think of the garden in mid-summer after a wonderful rain.) From my experience, it is possible to calm a storm or experience it in a less intense manner.
  2. Fire purifies and changes a landscape. With the many fires in the United States, it could be helpful to imagine the landscape after days of rain–or to see new life in the place of the flames. (Note: it’s more helpful to see and imagine rain than to wish for it.)
  3. Some of our weather may be manufactured by others. We could imagine gentle, balanced weather–or devices that don’t work.
  4. We hasten the seasons and the feeling of an accelerated year by sending children to school in early August. Advertisements such as Halloween in August make time seem to move more quickly. When we buy and prepare months ahead, we actually visualize cooler weather and other events such as Christmas and snow! It’s always a wonderful time to slow and become present.
  5. Mass beliefs such as associating harsh winter with global warming increase the likelihood of the experience. If many people believe this, we’ll certainly experience it. Obviously, it’s also possible to visualize and create a milder winter. On another topic, pollution obviously exists, and we have to see this truth. But we can also imagine a planet without pollution, including clear skies, clean water, and solutions for current problems.

If Nature is reflecting our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions, there is a possibility of creating a better reality. As far as I know, few people, with the exception of indigenous people, experiment with this. Please share your thoughts and insights.

Planetary Change: A Change in the Weather

newsletter_planetpic

 

The past few months have been filled with unnerving astrological aspects such as the Uranus/Eris conjunction (new beginnings and changes combined with discord and upset) and Saturn/Neptune square (confusion, difficulty with decisions about right action), and Uranus/Pluto square(the periodic descent into darkness followed by regeneration.) These aspects remain but have weakened–and changes in the weather provide new tools  to better deal with them.

Relatively speaking, the planets are quieter after the super moon. It feels as if they settled after taking on material form in the outer world—at least for the moment. As we pass through periods of intense growth, it’s likely that we’ll continue to feel strong emotions, conflicts, and challenges because it’s how we gain mastery.

Currently, more developed souls are working with collective by learning methods of sending light to larger groups and developing their personal calling. Other light workers have identified their calling and are putting into form on an individual level. But everyone is working on the development of their personal life as well as the perception of energies in the outer world. (We cannot change everything, but we can send light and work together in the achievement of a higher frequency.)

This week’s astrology offers an interesting and easier walk on the path. Sun in Scorpio (intensity, magnetism in outer life) trines the Moon (emotions, inner self, maternal energies) in Cancer. Sun and Moon trine in water signs can help to create harmonious emotions and positive feelings about life. Both Sun and Moon trine Chiron, the wounded healer, bringing power to heal the inner and outer life.

Mercury (mind, communications) in Sagittarius conjuncts Saturn (structure, time, karma) and gives insights about long term plans and structure in life, particularly in relationship to philosophy and the spiritual journey. Saturn gives perseverance and patience, and Mercury can give connection to the Higher Mind. (Mercury also squares Neptune (mysticism, idealism, illusion), meaning it’s important to see through the idealism and illusion of New Age spirituality to find a greater truth.)

Mars (overall energy, male, assertion) helps in realizing our inner potential. It sharpens the body and the higher mind; it can bring us back into alignment with universal ideals. It gives power to move more deeply into spiritual realization, and it helps with positive group endeavors. Mars trines Jupiter (good fortune), which can bring success in a harmonious sense.

Venus (love, beauty, feminine) sits in Capricorn, which bring feelings of rejection and loneliness to the surface. It also squares Jupiter (good fortune.) With this aspect, it’s important to think encouraging thoughts about love—and to know lower thoughts and fears about love and/or relationships are only temporary. This, too, will pass.

Jupiter in Libra balances energy, focuses on partnerships, and harmony. Currently, Jupiter is opposite Uranus, which doesn’t favor new endeavors. Plan to finish or work on projects planned in the past. Jupiter also squares Pluto and brings tension around our hopes and desires, but Pluto can reveal the blocks and hidden issues, which slow the progress of plans.

On the positive, Saturn (karma) trines Uranus (new beginnings), and both planets are in fire, which rules the heart. It indicates the possibility of creating an entirely new structure based on the voice of the heart and interests of the soul. It’s a beautiful opportunity.
