Looking at the astrology and energy of the day and how to best use it in our lives.


September 4th 2020

Blessed new day. I pray it finds you hopeful.

Today, Venus is finally starting to break away from her square to Mars, we have the moon in Aries making some aspects to Jupiter and Pluto, and we have the Sun and Mercury in Virgo. Today is actually Mercury’s last day in Virgo, and that can leave us feeling a bit desperate to figure things out.

I can’t state this strongly enough, figure it out!

Get as clear as you can, because when Mercury moves into Libra, you don’t want to start negotiations with yourself all over again! Being stuck in an endless loop is one of the dark’s best tricks, but we have the tools to see those loops, and to exit them.

Right now, it’s a lot like looking at a piece of paper partially scribbled on, but a lot still blank. Today is a day for sorting out what we want. What has come up in your life the past month? What do we still need to draw on that paper, and what do we want to get rid of.

We need courage to make changes, but with Mars all but stopped in Aries, we can be very lacking in motivation and energy at the moment.

I think a lot of us are struggling with energy. Let’s face it, it’s been a hell of a year, but Mars stopping, turning retrograde, that’s what has our energy zapped. But we have a Mars retrograde in Aries coming up next week and we haven’t seen Mars retrograde at home since 1988, so this is going to be potent.

We need to use this time seriously, we need to get some things figured out, we need to get clarity, and with the Sun and Mercury in Virgo, that’s pushing that need stronger than ever.

Look at your life the past month or so because things have been shown to you, truths have been unearthed. Where are you right now? Where are you trying to go?

Because retrogrades test us, they poke on all our raw places and ask, are you sure about that?

God honestly isn’t invested in your answer, just that you have one and that you can defend it.

We need to be sure in our choices before this retrograde begins.

We need to be able to defend those choices after retrograde begins.

Otherwise, you’ll get to the end of these three months in the same place you’re in now, only more angry and more frustrated.

And who wants that?

Deal with what’s coming up in your life right now. That’s God speaking to you, but don’t expect him to sound like your parents, teachers, or pastors. God’s voice is unique, and aligned on a frequency that is individualized for each of us and what we’re meant to do in this life.

We have to be willing to step out of our “good girl” boxes and live this life!

Don’t put these things off anymore, you’re out of time.

Use the energy, do the work, and you’ll be blessed beyond all your imagination. It’s a promise I’ve seen come true in my life over and over again.

Do it.

It’s hard, but it’s worth it.

Much love. See you on Monday.
