Capitalizing on the May 19 slingshot energy, many individuals have been feeling up in the air, in a space of not knowing where and when they are going to touch down. You were shot up in the air on May 19 with the powerful combination of energy, utilizing all of the astrological transits that April and May had to offer. Then for the last 7 weeks, you have been riding the arc of that slingshot trajectory, feeling like you are floating with little to no idea of what is going to happen next.
Add that to a chaotic feeling Mercury Retrograde period (ended June 30), and you can feel like you don’t remember which way is up anymore. This feeling is creating some physical symptoms to coincide with this spiritual launch forward. You can feel vertigo, nausea, dizziness, lower back pain, foot aches/cramping, restless legs, as well as an overall sense of confusion, like you feel unsure of the answer to even the simplest of questions.
These symptoms are the ways in which the body is interpreting the preparation for this upcoming landing. Think of it like your body is an aircraft, making its descent, and during the descent you are experiencing rapid changes in air pressure, deceleration, temperature and so forth. The body is doing its best to adjust to the rapid changes, and coping by experiencing some of the symptoms mentioned above.
Starting on July 16, as Jupiter enters Leo, this will be the day that begins the time of touching down on your new path. All the while you were up in the air; Mercury Retrograde was clearing out your path below, dusting it off, clearing the way and trimming all of the weeds.
Now as you prepare to touch down (again), you will not be shown the fullness of what is ahead for you, until it is upon you. You will be landing blind! I am sure for some of you, the thought of this is quite frightening, yet it is necessary. It is necessary because the Self (Ego) has become so adept at expecting, anticipating and even manifesting its assumptions, that it was required to restrict access to foresight about your new path.
So how will this new path look? For some, it will start with a substantial change in their life. Examples of this can be a change in an existing business, moving to a new location, changing jobs, etc. For others, they will begin to receive resources that can assist them in taking the foundation they have already been working on and bringing that to a greater level. And, the third option is that this new path brings a new round of individuals experiencing their own spiritual awakening. In fact during this Jupiter in Leo period (lasting until August 11, 2015) you will see spirituality discussed in the mainstream media in a way that was never thought possible before.
The lesson for all during this time is to learn to let go of what each of the next steps will look like on your path. Certainly, you can have some general goals and aims to focus on, but in order to best make use of this energy in your life, it is recommended to learn to let go of all of those smaller steps in between.
You will know the when and how of each step only at the moment when you need to know, and not sooner. Think of it like turn by turn directions, where you only hear the one next step you need.
Most of all be patient and learn to let go of the need to push things in order to make them happen. If you do this, you will discover that this tactic feels chaotic and stressful. Instead, go with the flow of your spiritual GPS, your intuition. It will show you exactly where you need to be at the right moment you need to be there. Learn to let go of the time you WANT to be there, and allow yourself to flow with God’s time.
Your new path is ready, and you are ready to land on it, why not do so with peace, connectedness and trust that the Universe possesses all of the wisdom to know the best route to take. If you feel your Self trying to push against you, simply say the following affirmation: “I surrender. I accept. I trust.”
