Your Weekly Oracle Reading + Astro Transits (06.19.2023)
It's time to remember who you are.
Happy Monday, magicians!
I hope you had a beautiful weekend that provided you with whatever insights, clarity, communication and movement that you needed.
Before I dive into this week’s transits, I wanted to remind you that we’re going to Thailand!!!
I announced last week that the next Return to Self retreat will be held in Thailand on March 11-17, 2024. Bookings for this trip open this Thursday, June 22, at 12:30 pm PST, and the first 8 people to book (by putting down a 25% deposit) will get $200 off.
The astro forecast of this week—
We had a lot of major transits happen last week with Saturn going retrograde, Pluto retrograding back into Capricorn and the New Moon in Gemini, so if you’re feeling a little all over the place or experiencing old stuff coming back up, trust that everything is still going according to plan.
Luckily, there’s not too much major astro stuff happening this week, aside from welcoming Cancer season on Wednesday!
This means the sun will be shining on whatever house Cancer rules in your chart, so expect some beautiful things to grow in that area of your life.
And happy birthday to all of my Cancers!
This week’s reading—
Some of you have been stuck, perhaps for a long time, in stagnant energy. Especially when it comes to your career or finances.
You may have been put in a position to severely doubt yourself or your skills, and this then translated to losing focus, motivation and ambition in following your dreams or the vision you have of where you see yourself going.
This has been a form of self-sabotage.
You weren’t seeing the fruits of your labor, which understandably, took a toll on your mental health and your faith. You may have resorted to taking on a dead-end job, or refusing to leave the job you hate, settling for mediocrity or even allowing perfectionism to get in the way of taking action toward your goal.
If the last statement resonated with you, remember that perfectionism is a trauma response (what isn’t these days), and is a very tricky way of setting yourself up to fail.
While you may use your perfectionism as an excuse to create quality work, what you may be in denial about is the fact that you actually use that perfectionism to delay ever getting started. That’s where it’s fucking you up.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, and in fact, it probably won’t be. But at least you’re putting action behind the intention, and that’s the most important part. Course correct as you go. You’re allowed to pivot and make changes as you see fit, so stop getting in the way before you even begin.
You’re meant to live a life of luxury and financial independence.
You are capable of so many amazing things. Success and achievement is written for you in your story, yet there still might be some self-worth issues that are blocking your ability to invite that energy into your life.
Why do you believe you’re not worthy of nice things? Who made you believe that and why do you keep accepting that as truth?
It doesn’t matter how you grew up, what your living situation was like, or what you’ve experienced in the past—you get to decide how your life unfolds for you moving forward.
For some of you, there’s a sense of guilt. You may be the only person in your family who is striving for a different life, and while you refuse to let that desire go, there’s still an unconscious block that stems from you feeling guilty for wanting better, and potentially getting better, than those around you.
Let that go.
Release yourself from the responsibility of how others chose to live their lives. That’s not on you. Furthermore, your ancestors didn’t go through everything they went through just for you to continue this cycle of lack. They struggled and persevered so that you could have what they couldn’t, so show up and show them what they helped make possible.
There’s no guilt in that, only deep reverence and gratitude.
You are the magician! You are able to manifest whatever it is that you truly and deeply feel is possible for you. Focus your intentions on that which you want to bring to reality and let go of the programmed limitations that have been placed on you.
You have the inspiration, desire, resources, willpower and ability to make your dreams a reality, but you have to be the one to believe that it is so.
The guidance for this week is “emerge.”
It's time to stop hiding and playing small. It’s time to stop holding on to a version of yourself that’s begging to die.
You’re evolving and growing. You might even be becoming someone who you don’t necessarily recognize, but are eager to know, and yet, that can create a lot of hesitancy.
It’s OK to be scared. It’s OK to be uncertain about what’s next. But what’s not OK is continuing to hold on to the cocoon when it’s time to fly.
Spread your wings and see what you’re capable of.
There’s Virgo energy here (Sun and Venus), as well as Mercury energy, so these placements may be significant for you or someone else connected to this reading as additional confirmation, but they don’t have to be.
The numerology of this reading is a 9. In numerology, 9 “represents completion, but not finality. Think of it more in a cyclical sense; it's about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin.”
What did I just tell you?!?!
Have a beautiful week and take care of yourself!
