The Pilgrim – Page of Scrolls, Butterfly, & Perspective
What needs to be known? You can read it but until you take it to heart you aren’t going to know it. This is the call to put what you have learned to work to help you transform your life. This often means you need to step out of the comfort zone and look at things from a different view and perspectives. How can your perspective create a narrative? Where is transformation needed?
Six of Scrolls, Protection, & Courage
Where is tenderness needed? Tenderness, compassion, kindness are seen a weakness by some, which is a load of BS. They are not weak but foster strength and resiliency. This is what you want as a super power to the Six of Scrolls reminds you to bring caring and love while understanding that doing so you can base your protection in those emotions.

The Watcher – Queen of Mirror, Heart of Stone, Heart
Are you feeling all the feels? This is all about emotion and your heart his week. What do you want? What is the place the heart most desires? Feel the feels but don’t let them take over you heart. You will need that move into your intuition and trust it fully. Trust the signs that come to you all of them. Know you are guided and can find your way. Do you trust your intuition or dismiss it? How many signs do you need before you believe?
reminds us to keep in touch without creative sides.
Not to let that be defined for you by an outside source but to use your definition. Color outside the lines if you want to or in them if that’s what’s speaking to you. There are loads of things that get outside definitions and your creativity should not be one.
Creativity is not only artistic endeavors but how you solve a problem and simply live your life. Don’t dismiss the small creative acts that happen everyday that you don’t think about. You started out with ideas and expressed them.
Expressing them is a big deal. It helps you reconnect to yourself. Ask yourself what makes your spirit dance? What do you enjoy doing?
Reminds that you need to keep your creative feelers receptive.
There’s some fire you can tap into in October. How you do that is up to you. Don’t worry about what’s right or wrong here only what you need to do to keep your rebirth going.
You can’t change and keep doing the same old, same old. It simply doesn’t work that way. Look at what’s working and what’s not working. The creative fire comes in here and all that steam the Queen of Wands can bring in to help propel you into new parameters.
The guide card for the October Forecast is the Phoenix which is also a creature of fire and rebirth. Which means you need to know the changes that have happened and work to keep the one’s you want.
Tap into the energy in the solar plexus to help solidify everything.
This is where the will sits in your body. Use it to help you get where you want.
There is also a ball of energy that is waiting for the pinprick of this change to open it up. That’s all it i s going to take to release this ball of wonderful energy that’s waiting is the willingness to embrace your rebirth and fuel it with new behaviors. Sounds simple but you know changing behaviors in the beginning means being present and aware.
What do you need to bring in to help? Where do you need more skills?
Sometimes you need to find new skills to help you keep what you want with change and get where you want to be.
If you find the detour look for the lessons you need in it. Detours tend to happen when you aren’t paying attention or you aren’t ready for where you want to go. You learn from them and the detour can help you find the skills you need.
How do you feel? What thoughts about self are happening?
Are you judging how you feel?
If you are you are not alone. And if you aren’t kudos to you!
Knowing where you are emotionally is important to knowing what’s going on with your well being. It is easy to want to get rid of difficult emotions. Society also tends to encourage this by telling you to buck up, get over it, move on…
All of which aren’t very helpful when you aren’t feeling super duper emotionally for whatever reason.
The emphasis of this ritual will be to bring in self love by doing a self blessing.
Why bless ourselves?
It is a reminder that all of you is worthy, sacred, and holy. That perfect is not what makes you any of those. It is your ability to meet yourself and in turn others where they are.
Self witnessing and validating teaches you how to show up for yourself. That will spill over into your life. It will help you remember not to give advice when all someone needs is to be seen and heard.
Seeing, hearing, validating, bearing witness is empowering. Having someone else let you know they hear and see you can be all they really need.
You can start with you!
This ritual will focus on you as a whole not just the parts you like to witness. You will have the chance to embrace the challenging aspects of self along with all the stuff that’s easy to validate.
The Equinox Ritual for Self Blessing will take place September 18th @ 5 PM Mountain, 7 PM Eastern get your invite here.
asks you to take a look at what’s working and what’s not working. Decide what you want to work on and change and what can hang out for a while.
Know what works and what doesn’t you don’t have to do it all at once. Pick what’s not feeling so right to you at the moment. It might feel a bit tight or a bit off. That’s where you want to focus.
There’s a bunch of Uranus Retrograde energy working with this to help you open your eyes and see what you need to know. It is awareness of what is working and what’s not.
Exploration of self and knowledge of your empowerment is a big theme this month don’t shut it down, keep it open, even if that is a trickle. Big change can be a scary creature to step into. Let’s face small change can be just as scary. Be okay with this and do the work.
That’s what courage is.
It is not being fearless but being afraid and still acting.
The thing about clarity is it does not pop out of your head like Athena popping out of Zeus’ head. If that does happen it is rare, write it down because you have under a minute before it is gone.
Leaving you wondering where that clarity and knowing went and how you can get it back.
Most of the time the best way to get clarity is to get started on it. Action will help you get to clarity faster then thinking about it or waiting for it to show up.
Clarity is a lot like inspiration the more you act and do the more often you create it. The artist in me knows the more I create art the more inspired I am. If Athena fully formed does show up it tends to be when I am acting.
The more you act and create a practice that leads you towards clarity the more you will have it. Part of it is trusting yourself. When you have an idea that feels right and you act on it.
Slyvanious is all bout finding clarity
What’s the direction you are headed in? Do you like? If yes keep going if no start making the choices that get you one you like.
Create small steps that keep you headed where you are going. Small adds up to big.
Refine, refine, refine!
That means you keep making adjustments and choices that keep you on track.
Doing this will help you find more clarity then trying to know the whole big picture all at once before you have even started.
As a teen I became very aware of bias. This is due to the ostracization I faced for not being LDS in Utah. It was an insular place back in the 80’s with not a ton of diversity. That’s neither here not there because we are talking about bias.
Here’s somethings I know about bias.
We all have it. It can be known and understood. Which means you strive not to use it.
For example back to high school all Mormons are don’t like non members this is part of my bias in dealing with the LDS faith. I know this I also know it is not true. Crappy kids do not define a whole religion.
Privilege! Being white means I get a pass on a lot of things. My life is easier because I am white in skin color.
This means when POC tell their experience I believe and validate them. I don’t shut them down and tell them that it doesn’t happen because it hasn’t happened to me.
Womxn you know the above because womxn are told what they experience isn’t how it is because, well the guys don’t have that problem. We all know this is BS. Call them on it and call others on it when they do about anyone!
Stereotypes are part of bias.
Know what your stereotypes are part of how you train someone to know danger. One of my stereotypes is all men are potential threats. This is based in facts but…
Since I know this I can realize most men are not going to harm me walking down the street or harass. Most men aren’t going to call other men on street harassment. Men use their privilege here.
Uranus Retrograde Meditation
What does this have to do with Uranus retrograde?
Uranus is ready to open your eyes for you. If you won’t do it for you.
This retrograde will help you know all the awful things about yourself and drag you deep into the shadow. This is work that needs to happen you need to know and own your bias, privilege, and stereotypes.
Time is up for not having to do the work due to your privilege and yes I am talking to the white folks reading this. Spirituality is understanding the totality of you,not just the parts you like.
