“This week, our hearts are awakened from a slumber. Loving-kindness emerges. A gentle, sweet mercy emanates in the world this week, and as it does, it inspires us to the power we have to change another’s life, and in the process, our own. Our hearts are asked to be opened to others this week, letting people in and creating a little more of the love that the world so desperately needs. It is when we let others in that we are then able to let our inner Creator out.” – Karen Berg on the portion of Vayera
As we are in the midst of the month of Scorpio, emotions run high, and we may have strong feelings, which can lead us (at times) to feel and react in an intense manner. The week starts on a more challenging note when the aspect of Venus in Scorpio and Saturn in Aquarius can create friction and emotional setbacks. Be watchful Sunday through Tuesday not to fall into judgment or frustration. Notice if you are viewing the world and others around you through a dark hole and interpreting things with a negative lens. If you do feel tempted to fall into this vibe, remember: it’s temporary, and our perception is limited.
The energy shifts Tuesday evening through the end of the week when Venus, and later Mercury in Scorpio, form a positive aspect to Neptune in Pisces. Still, emotions are in the front seat this week, but there is an awakening of empathy, a desire to see and connect to others, and the urge to be a source of support wherever it's needed.
On Thursday, the 17th of the Scorpio (also known as the day of Noah’s flood), the cosmos supports us with a few positive alignments that can help us to elevate from the harsh energy of the day. This is greatly needed as this day is known to be connected to the energy of destruction and disconnection.
As the moon moves into the sign of Cancer on the night between Friday and Saturday, we can experience a beautiful bond and connection between all the planets again in water elements, which supports our connection to the divine and our ability to open our hearts and be there for anyone who needs us.
