energy update June - tension and lessons
Intuitive energy update time: There’s been some heavy chaos and upheaval lately.
It’s showing up in our personal lives as well as the human collective, so that we may feel like there’s an energetic cyclone blowing through!
Fear, disruption, uncertainty, or drama may be hitting a crescendo, which feels strangely at odds with the lazy days of Summer that are just beginning for us in the Northern hemisphere.
The end of May and beginning of June has long been a favorite time of year for me. When I was a kid, it was because of school letting out and the Summer heat returning! It’s the time of year when my husband and I first met, and our younger daughter’s birthday also occurs at this time.
To me, Summer days feel like joy, plenty, and ease - slow mornings and late sunsets, watermelon and popsicles on the porch, fireflies and evening swims…
Despite all that, there’s a tension in the air right now that’s palpable.
The other day, the Schumann resonance was spiking higher than I’ve seen it in probably a year.
The new moon in Gemini, on May 30th, especially felt like we were being invited to close down some old channels, and mindfully re-focus our attention elsewhere.
New moons are about beginnings and endings; about retreating and regrouping; about making sense of and befriending the neglected, atrophied parts of ourSelves.
This might look like asserting your boundaries for more space and alone time - or saying no to things that actually, just aren’t doing much to uplift your mental state.
As Gala Darling says - chase JOY like it’s your JOB.
Prioritizing your joy is not just a nice idea for when we aren’t busy with more important things.
It’s literally how we raise the collective vibration of the planet.
Joy IS the important thing!
So, maybe quit being so patient with basic bullshit in your life? :)
Additionally, Saturn is going retrograde on June 5th.
Usually we hear more about Mercury retrograde (which ended yesterday!).
Astrology newbies worry about retrogrades because they think it means “bad things” are more likely to happen.
In my opinion, retrogrades feel more like opportunities for growth.
Retrogrades tend to manifest potential pattern-breakers or choice points, where we can either decide to step out of unhelpful cycles and choose something new - or, we can resist the lessons dished up, dig in our heels, and (quite likely) end up having a predictable, not-so-fun time.
Things are going well, you’ve made progress in your life, and then your ex texts out of the blue?
You’ve been sober and quietly proud of yourself, and then you’re having the best time with dear friends - and find yourself being offered a drink?
