We’ve finally got some energy from the Cosmos to start moving forward. I bet you’re relieved to hear that! Or maybe that’s just me.

If you’ve been following these interesting retrogrades and planetary aspects, you’ve cleared out the past and buried pain. You’ve bravely reconnected with your True Self. You’ve developed a whole new life path or goal. And you’ve established your new foundation.

“Mercury Retrograde brings everything full circle, so that we can come home to ourselves.” – Ashanti

Now it’s time to take those first tiny, but solid steps forward. 

This is really an exciting time considering all we went through to get here. And we’re not out of the woods yet.

But I started feeling this new energy last night. I looked at my new life goal. I double checked my plan to get there. And then I started digging in to the work. After months and years even of feeling held back, it felt glorious, let me tell ya.

Fears and distractions might come up today. This is normal as we step foot into the unknown. We subconsciously create distractions as an attempt to avoid the discomfort of embracing our personal power and doing something new. 

“Ask, What action should I take, not to make this happen’, but to express more of who I am already.” – Maryam Hasnaa

Freedom can feel scary and intimidating when we’re not used to it. The message is to direct your high energy into your new life path, goal, or creative project. And understand that there’s hard work ahead. Otherwise, you might find yourself giving up and going back to bed.

We’re also still figuring out that our beliefs create our reality, and we can control our beliefs according to our Higher Self knowings and desires. So don’t be afraid to change your beliefs to what you know deep within, which is always something good.

“Happiness brings success more than success brings happiness.” – Magnetic Mama

May your soul be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
