Reflect Before Looking Ahead

We began 2021 knowing that it would hold the vibration of the number 5 (2+0+2+1=5), which in numerology is indicative of adventure and change. As I write this, it's 5:55 pm (EST). This has certainly been a year of change for me. Has it been for you? Change that I have planned, change that I finally initiated, and change that I have not, but nonetheless it occurred and so much has happened. There are so many things coming into my awareness about looking ahead to 2022, however at this time, I feel it's extremely important to pause and reflect with devotion and intention before looking ahead into 2022. What has changed externally, internally, intentionally and/or unintentionally? We are about to close out eclipse season, which can be a time of great chaotic change, or quiet nudges and whispers from the You-niverse. The themes of these whispers began in mid-2020, with the energetic shift in the cosmos to letting in new ideas and information and letting go of outdated doctrines, beliefs and philosophy. The final eclipse of 2021, and the final eclipse of this cycle is in the wee hours of Saturday morning, 2:43 am (EST), with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius. This is the final opportunity to release indoctrination, limiting beliefs and philosophy until a similar energy returns to us collectively and individually in early 2039.


I think it's always important to have an awareness of what's coming, but at this time, with the calendar year ending and the energetic shift occurring almost simultaneously, with the Solstice approaching, in the darkest time of the year, reflect and release. Every month as the Moon wanes into darkness, it's a wonderful time to go inward, focus on REst, Self-REcognition, your Soul's looking glass. Examine and remember all the beautiful and treacherous times of 2021.


How have you grown?

What limiting beliefs or indoctrination have been released from your consciousness?

Have you become a more sovereign being?

What else can be surrendered?

How have you embraced new information that may challenge everything you thought you knew?


The eclipse energy is ripe for this shadow work, and the clock is ticking to steep in it from now until December 21st with another eventful Solstice. It will be flanked by the Full Moon in Gemini on the 18th and the nodal axis shift (to the Torus/Scorpio axis) on the 22nd. Powerful. I leave you with this...2020 and 2021 have been...extra. The energies we've been experiencing have been some of the most challenging, potent and transformative energies that many of us will ever experience in this humble lifetime. Honor yourself over these next few weeks. Take time outs from the holiday buzz and reflect and release as much as possible. I've been in the trenches with you, I honor you, I SEE you and I feel you.


From my Soul to yours with Love,
