Elements of Spirit - EARTH Reading - 8.29-9.5

EARTH READING: 8.29-9.5

AFFIRMATION: “I MOVE THROUGH RESISTANCE TO PROVE THAT I CAN TRUST MYSELF."

THIS WEEK:  There seems to be some chunky rock formations around your arms and shoulders. They could be shoulder pads for protection, but we sense that these are layers of resistance revealed by the recent astrological alignments. BUT DON'T WORRY, they are ready to be shed.

You could also think of it as scar tissue. During mars retrograde it may have been difficult to get behind all your projects, this may have been trying, you may have even been exhausted. But all that resistance has caused you to heal and build up strength. Now it's time to rehab, to work through scar tissue and get your full range of motion back. The energy is there now thanks to Mars direct.

So whatever you held off on, or held back on during the last few weeks and months needs some muscle behind it now. Be brave and bold like a bull in a china shop. If you break something pick it up and fix it, but by no means should you be proceeding gingerly right now. Loosen up, and move around, get the cricks out. If you apply yourself and take advantage of the easy influx of fiery energy right now, you might get that all too rare occurrence wherein you feel yourself, you like what you feel, and you appreciate what you like. This may even lead you to trusting yourself! Play to your strengths, emphasize your progress, and get back in the game. 

COLORS TO POP: Grass green and dirt brown.
CRYSTALS TO VIBE: Green calcite, selenite.
OILS TO ANOINT: Rosemary, spearmint.
SNACKS TO NOSH: Muscle milk or vegan protein shakes
INSPIRATIONS TO INSPIRE: The Incredible Hulk at the physical therapist's office. He may break some shit, but everyone needs healing sometimes.

EARTH READING: 8.15-8.22

AFFIRMATION: “I AM SELF-SUFFICIENT AND FULL OF POWER, NO MATTER WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME OR WHAT ANYONE THINKS."

THIS WEEK:  KNEES AND SHINS BITCHES, KNEES AND SHINS

For some reason your ego is being challenged this week. Maybe you don’t like the info turned up by mercury stationing direct… too bad… integrate it cuz it’s true. 

Try not to be so concerned about the implications, especially how you’re appearing to other people. The shins represent how "fronting" in life; what we lead with: the ideals, morals or stances that we build our belief systems on. The knees represent the ego structure and self concept that is built upon those ideals and morals. 

How can you make sure you are in alignment? Let the old you die and accept who you are today. The old you can also be who you thought you were or who you thought you had to be. Just be who you are, as you are, start there. And use this week to articulate that perfect position with so much love. Don’t worry about saving face. Come up to speed with where you are now and everyone will love you even more (including yourself)

The first version of the affirmation we heard was: "I DONT NEED WHAT I THINK I NEED AS BADLY AS I THINK I NEED IT," but we settled on an affirmative version of that. Use whichever you prefer.

COLORS TO POP: Butter yellow, honey gold.
CRYSTALS TO VIBE: Citrine, Yellow Jasper
OILS TO ANOINT: Amber, Lemon.
SNACKS TO NOSH: Turkish delight, vegan truffles
INSPIRATIONS TO INSPIRE: Saints who have lived through trials, who then find peace in themselves during meditation or even in their martyrdom; radiating the unshakeable self-sufficiency of one who knows the divine.
