An emotionally charged month:
We are in an energetically charged season as we enter the month of November with a powerful Solar Eclipse in the horizon. According to our last astro forecast, many of us will be experiencing deep emotional transformation. This is growth, the shedding of the old guard in preparation for the new.
In the past few weeks or days leading up to the end of October, have you been feeling more emotional, sentimental, and nostalgic? Have you felt a little out-of-yourself – discovered temperaments and traits you didn't know you were capable of embodying? If you've felt so much as an inkling of this or a full on emotional torrential downpour, the first proper thing to do is to acknowledge these emotions; affirm your newfound discoveries of self. This on its own is a big step forward.
Second is to pay close attention to your emotional state and the whims that get enacted during this time. But remember, be kind to yourself. As Mary and I discussed on our first podcast together in early October (listen here), seasons with retrogrades, eclipses and other powerful planetary happenings tend to amplify our deeper inner selves. The 'selves' that we'd normally keep hidden, or didn't even know existed in the first place, will come out of the woodwork in full force. Instead of doubling your efforts trying to "get rid" of these amplified versions of you, study them. Both the good and bad. You can never fully step out of your yin, so might as well yield it to your advantage. Study to understand your darker traits to co-act it with your lighter ones. You're multidimensional and unaware of the power you possess. Remember that.
The only way out is through, especially when we're dealing with emotions and other personal matters. You can try and sweep it under the rug, but they'll always find a way to resurface. Bottling up emotions will only get you so far until you reach the cap limit, then you know what happens next... So go through the motions of it, feel it, and cry if you have to. You're honoring yourself by doing this – by not putting a limit to how much or how hard you can feel, you're allowing yourself to embrace the growth, the transformation and the shift.
Growth is uncomfortable and humans are creatures of comfort. We'll always find a way to build a box, even if we like to step out of it frequently, and that's okay. Again, expect deep emotional transformation this month and remember, don't cower or hide. Instead, acknowledge, study, embrace and move forward.
