Our card for the day, Saturday, June 29th, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards – The Hermit/Archangel Raziel #9 – “Spend time in quiet meditation. Spiritual teaching. Self-discovery.”
– Archangel Raziel offers sage advice to spiritual seekers, including guidance about esoteric concepts, interpretation of your sleeping dreams, and past-life memories. (taken from the Angel Tarot Cards guidebook)
– The number 9 represents: “Get to work Lightworker – Now! The number 9 means that you’ve completed all of the prerequisites to achieve your life purpose. Stop procrastinating, as it’s time to start taking action steps. Even baby steps are useful.” (taken from Angel Numbers 101 by Doreen Virtue)
I don’t know about all of you but the energies, or the Mercury retrograde, or whatever else it might be, has me dealing with old feelings and issues that I thought I had healed and released long ago. That is the focus of the retrograde but it is tiring. All I want to do is sleep, but then I have a hard time getting to sleep when I go to bed because my thoughts are a constant buzz going over stuff I thought I had left behind. Then I have a hard time getting up when the time comes. Here is what Elizabeth Peru has to say about the energies right now:
THIS WEEKEND: Hello everyone! Are you geared up for a productive weekend? A major influence in our life right now is the Mercury Retrograde, plus remember there are 5 other bodies in retrograde influencing us too, Saturn, Pluto, Chiron & Neptune. This means we are all going over old ground to know ourselves better and refine the details. This is an excellent period in which to uncover what you previously missed. In other words, to extract the jewel from the stone.
Now some people don’t like retrogrades because they think that going over old ground keeps us stuck in the past, when today should be the focus.
Well today is the focus (strongly during a retrograde) and what comes up today to look at may have to do with what you did yesterday and what you will do tomorrow. We need to look at everything with a fine tooth comb right now to learn, grow and better ourselves.
What I know from experience, is that a retrograde raises our awareness. We need present moment awareness in all of our ideas and actions. We now get to look over past mistakes and victories and say, “Gosh if I had been more aware I would have known what so and so meant back then”.
So this weekend. Raise your awareness. Wise up. Open your ears and eyes and hearts and face everything head on. And you’ll have an awesome one, promise xxx
So this card fits nicely with what is happening in the heavens right now that is affecting each and everyone of us in some way or another. This card gives us the best advice, spend time in meditation. I know I need this time to stop the thoughts that are cycling round and round in my head. Do some reading on how best to avail of the energies right now or how to deal with whatever is coming up for you. All of this will lead to self-discovery. Remember it has come up in the past that anything left in us that can’t be taken into the New Earth, the brand new reality we are getting ready to inhabit, must be dealt with now. So this is what makes us feel like we are being turned inside out and scraped clean, or I think someone else said it feels like we are in a blender. As hard as it is, it is work that must be done. Once again I will say that the best way to get through these energies is to eat foods rich in nutrients and light like fresh fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water and honor your body’s need for rest.
We should pay attention to our dreams right now too. Often they bring to our conscious mind what is hidden in our subconscious, what needs to be looked at and healed and released. If you are like me and have a hard time remembering your dreams, you might want to keep a notebook and pen on the night table and write down anything you can remember as soon as you wake up. Then as you remember more during the day, add that to it as well. Sometimes over a couple of nights you will see a pattern forming in your dream time. This is a clue as to what you need to take a look at in your waking time. When all is said and done, this period of time, the retrograde, may make us all feel like hibernating or becoming hermits. The number 9 represents completion so maybe that means we will soon be finished dealing with the old and we will be ready for the new. Be kind to yourselves and honor your own needs right now. Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
