Vesta has stationed direct. Her three-month retrograde through Leo and Cancer has now ended.
Pay attention to whatever intuitive, emotional or other forms of messages you receive at this time. For some of you, it will be a parting of ways with a particular construct of service. Specifically how that is embodied and brought into the domestic, familial and/or psychological interior.
Some of you will have renewed and reinvigorated such commitments to home, family, motherhood, tribe and culture – the parts of life that anchor our emotional being. It varies for each person and how they choose to work out their karmic slate.
Given Vesta´s current proximity to asteroid Atlantis, those who remember lifetimes from that period and/or have a strong emotional attachment to it will feel this shift intensely.
Many old karmic contracts from then still in play are being dissolved right now. That slate is being washed. And for some, letting go will be as painful as needing to let go of a beloved home, or even a parent.
But it too – is a powerful rite of passage.
For others, it can be felt as the release of emotional patterns that conflate emotional vulnerability with victimhood or the inability to fully step into one´s power.
Not everyone will choose this, but many are certainly aspiring to. An that counts. Big time.
As Vesta is part of the Grand Cardinal Cross involving Uranus, Eris, Pluto and Jupiter – her shift in direction will also shift the way we navigate this potent astrological alignment over the next two months – at the emotional level.
So, what to do?
Here´s a couple of suggestions:
Remember to feel your emotions, let them move through you.
Listen to what your body needs and wants – and what it doesn´t – at this time, in terms of nurture, nutrition and comfort. Dark chocolate will probably go a long way for some of you
Do grounding and purifying practices to keep the flow clear and focused. Salt soaks with Lavender and/or Frankincense will be of great benefit at this time.
Rituals of release by bodies of water (particularly the ocean) will be extremely effective at this time.
Request psychic protection at this time – calling upon Ascended Beings and/or Archangels you resonate with will be useful. This is a lovely mantra to work with for that purpose:
Work with facilitators whose integrity and accuracy you trust and who have specialization in cutting or dissolving karmic contracts. You may want to wait a day or two to let the emotional waters subside a bit.
Vesta finally moves past the point where she began her retrograde (i.e. moves out of her shadow period) on May 20th. You have 10 weeks to integrate the deep and profound changes to the way we feel – thanks to her Retrograde (December 2016-March 2017).
