Your Weekly Oracle Reading + Astro Transits (05.15.2023)
Releasing feminine wounds that are blocking your heart space.
Did you miss me?!
I know it’s been a while since we’ve done our weekly readings due to our Costa Rica retreat, but we’re back and coming in hot!
Before I dive into the transits and reading, I want to share with you that the ORACLE FLASH SALE is officially open for the next 72 hours!
I’m not sure how many more of these I’ll be doing, so if you’ve been wanting to get a reading, this is your chance.
As you probably already know, these readings are roughly 15 minutes and sent to the email provided upon purchase. Please allow up to 10 business days from the closing of the sale to receive your reading.
Last, but certainly not least, my time hosting the retreat got my wheels turning, but before I begin constructing new offerings, I wanted to learn from you firsthand about your needs.
So, if you wouldn’t mind taking 2 minutes to fill out this survey to help me understand what this community is looking for, I’d greatly appreciate it!
The astro forecast of this week—
Y’all can let out a sigh of relief, because Mercury went direct in Taurus yesterday! Don’t get too comfortable, though, because we’re still in a Mercury Rx shadow period for two weeks, so you can expect things to fall back into place, but it might be a little wobbly until the end of the month.
Tomorrow is a pretty big deal, because Jupiter enters Taurus and will remain there for the remainder of the year. This puts the expansive energy of Jupiter in a sign that’s grounding, stable, secure and confident. Take a look at what house Taurus rules in your chart to see where you may experience some profound blessings!
On Friday, we have a New Moon in Taurus, providing you with a beautiful opportunity to pursue financial endeavors, call in abundance, be more sensual and connected to the physical world and make use of stability and security.
If you want to amplify these energies by doing a New Moon ritual, consider purchasing my Return to Self New Moon Journal for your new moon intentions!
This week’s reading—
I know we haven’t really dove into the energies over the last few weeks, and I can only imagine what came up with Mercury in retrograde and a full moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio.
There’s a sense with this reading that some of you have been facing feminine wounds lately. This can be connected to a prominent feminine figure in your life (mother wounds are coming in kinda loud here), feminine friendships and/or your own feminine energy (remember you have this regardless of how you identify).
This was actually a topic that kept coming up in Costa Rica, so I’m not surprised to see it in the cards. While discussing the difference between the shadow of the feminine and the masculine, a common portrayal of feminine wounds was manipulation and a cunning energy.
While masculine wounds can definitely break your heart, feminine wounds can break your spirit.
The feminine shadow is not one to be underestimated. She is a schemer, sneaky, calculated and strategic. Whatever her motive is, she will break through your barriers to your most vulnerable state and then betray you.
Yeah, it’s pretty fucked up, and unfortunately, some of you may have experienced that throughout your life, and/or have adopted that energy as a form of self-protection.
The good news is there’s a sense of release happening with this.
Whether you’re letting go of past pain associated with feminine figures in your life or healing the feminine aspects of yourself so that you can show up more empowered and open, you’re approaching a heightened sense of freedom and awareness.
Perhaps you’ve realized that true liberation is in your heart space, and the only way to experience that is to surrender and face the fears that arise instead of trying to control the circumstances to what you assume is your favor.
For those of you who resonate with this reading, whatever energy block this correlates to was also blocking your creativity and shining a light on your insecurities, scarcity mindset and dependence on others.
You may have found yourself exhibiting behaviors that didn’t even really feel like you.
This was all to challenge your beliefs and traditional norms. You’re meant to be the Queen of Pentacles, a grounded, practical, warm and generous figure who has a good balance.
Any mental strife over past issues or overthinking that led to repeated cycles is being let go of now in order to experience a new story.
The guidance for this week is “finding balance.”
Where are you leaning too far into one side? Are you relying too heavily on your masculine energy and ignoring your feminine needs? Are you too far into your feminine nature that you’ve forgotten about the masculine energy that resides within you?
Maybe it’s as simple as allowing yourself time of rest instead of working around the clock or taking action towards something that scares you.
I’m not gonna lie to you, those words (masculine/feminine) are incredibly limiting, but until we find better terms to identify these varying energies, I want you to reflect on what their presence in your life manifests as.
If you’re interested in learning more about how the shadow traits of these energies can show up in your life, grab my Deconstructing Shadow Work e-book where I explain them in further detail.
There’s Capricorn energy here, as well as Aquarius (Moon) and Gemini (Jupiter) 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 6. In numerology, 6 is “is the embodiment of the heart. It represents unconditional love and the ability to support, nurture, and heal. It is a powerful force of compassion and empathy and its warm light is a beacon of hope. Its role is to use its heart and soul to be of service to others.”
Have a beautiful few weeks, and take care of yourselves!
