Welcome to the last week of November 2019! As we approach the final month of the year, the skies sure are alight with movement:
In the Stars
On Monday the 25th, Jupiter is finishing his jaunt across the Galactic Center and is posing some questions to our deepest knowing; what is our purpose when we get beyond the ego? How might the hard choices be the more fulfilling ones? Is getting everything we want really what we need?
This probing query serves to get us ready to launch our truly authentic and tested intentions out into the cosmos on Tuesday, with the help of the New Moon in Sagittarius. Be sure to take full advantage of this opportunity in order to set yourself up for a windfall of intuitive and passionate energy as Neptune turns direct on Wednesday!
We’ll be enjoying (or at least riding) this flow into Thanksgiving and our weekend’s sure to be filled with tender, heart-filled moments – that is if we can ease into this new, more expressively emotive energy. Coming out of this inner, personally reflective time might have some of us feeling raw and vulnerable tough, so take it easy on yourself and others. You will have time to integrate and express, for now just enjoy your loved ones and allow the holiday cheer to lift you up rather than drag you down.
“Look around your world and see where you have confused the fulfillment of desire with the role of sovereign… and take up the mantel of that role in your life now.”The Sovereign, Oracle of the Dragonfae Deck
The Cosmos is taking no prisoners this week, and our divinatory reading is agreeing with the stars: we all have to fight for our very lives! No, it isn’t death of the body at stake, but rather the death of the spirit OR the death of the ego. No longer can we serve two masters: we must choose.
Jupiter crossing through the Galactic Center has allowed us to glimpse beyond our perceived limitations and Neptune’s retrograde journey has forced us to get up close and personal with our own hearts, but now is the time to make a decision. How are we going to apply all that we’ve learned?
Will we keep playing small, feeling sorry for ourselves, making excuses and playing into ego’s vain and purposeless games? Or will we make the hard choices, face our resistance and do the difficult things our very spirits dared to take a chance at existence for?
“Open-hearted we must be, sovereign to ourselves, loving unto ourselves and full of the knowledge that we already have more than enough.”The Sovereign, Oracle of the Dragonfae Deck
We have been lied to. Again and again we have been told that objects, ideals, status and achievements are more important and valuable than ourselves, our spirits, even our very souls… This has created a sepsis of energy density and decay and we simply must stop the spread of this “wanting/wasting disease.”
We must take back our own personal sense of responsibility. Take back our ability to control our actions and limit our desires. Take back our Divine sovereignty and stop participating in the puppetry of our minds, bodies and emotions.
We must each decide, within our own sovereignty, to become the person we can respect most and then yes, even endeavor to overcome all the challenges of distractions, desires and difficulties that get in the way of becoming that person. Fulfillment arises through development of strength, fostering good habits and contributing our own blessings to the world. This is why no amount of stuff or achievements will ever satisfy – we’re not just here to get, we’re here to give too.
“Feel your own soft majesty. Feel your power, now, and express it through living in integrity. Be responsible, beginning now and incrementally taking the vibratory level up gently each day for your world.”The Sovereign, Oracle of the Dragonfae Deck
and the Answer
“Discernment empowers you to make choices that are aligned with your spiritual intentions.”Sound the Fierce Flute, Kuan Yin Oracle Deck
We respond to the call of our highest self with discernment. This doesn’t mean judgement, but rather a gentle awareness.
We can discern that a relationship isn’t right for us because that person’s priorities are different than our own without making a judgement about that person or their priorities. Discernment is about acting authentically, from a place of assurance within our own self-aware truth, whereas judgement is trying to have that type of authority over something external to us.
Judgement is often a power move of the ego, an attempt to protect the feeble “rightness” of our own choices by vilifying those with different motivations or ideas. Discernment however, needs no one to be “wrong,” it’s simply an acknowledgement of what the truth is. When we act in truth, we are organically and naturally empowered.
“If you wish to grow spiritually through love, joy, peace and abundance, then discerning between higher and lower vibrational choices is helpful.”Sound the Fierce Flute, Kuan Yin Oracle Deck
This is where we begin to have real, potent and powerful effects in our lives. This is what gives us the ability to manifest and quantum jump.
At any given time, there are an infinite number of lives available for us to live. Our choices gradually make some options and opportunities more or less viable and likely to occur. In this way, having discernment allows us to gradually create the supports and foundations that encourage and promote the types of futures that feel most authentic to us, whilst also furthering ourselves from the outcomes our souls do not long to manifest.
“This Oracle has come to you because you are in need of seeing a situation in your life from your heart rather than from appearances.”Sound the Fierce Flute, Kuan Yin Oracle Deck
NOW is the time for us to be discerning! As this New Moon approaches, how will we be using our new emotional and visionary energy to progress from here? Are we going to take this cosmically charged opportunity to make a conscious and authentic quantum leap into the possibility and potentially of our own unique spirits?
This week, we can make these newly purified, raw and authentic revelations even more powerful and potent. We can feel them in the depths of our hearts and souls without fear! We can all dare to allow our truth to spill forth in all of its vulnerable glory, and present it with humble awe to the majesty and care of the Divine.
“Don’t be afraid to trust your own vision, beloved, it will help you live your truths and take good care of your own Soul.”Sound the Fierce Flute, Kuan Yin Oracle Deck
May we all embrace our enlightenment a little more this week. May we all step into our sovereign responsibilities with humble discernment, and be blessed with the awesome fulfillment of doing the hard things. Blessed Be!
