Call on Kali to Cut the Ties That Hold You Back

This week is the beginning of Mercury retrograde in the dreamy mystical sign of Pisces calling up opportunities to redo and revisit some of our leftover internal “stuff from the past”. I am one of those irritating people who loves the retrogrades because I’ve always seen how I can improve and shift my life if I don’t avoid them. If you work it right, you will slow right down, calm down, stop caring if planes are late or if your address book got erased and do the work required.

I see Mercury retrograde in Pisces visually. So, stay with me here and imagine a scene from the movie Moonstruck with Cher and Nicolas Cage when he babbles at her about how much he loves her the morning after they sleep together and she slaps him and yells, “SNAP OUT OF IT!” at him.

I kinda see the Goddess Kali the same way. You can’t BS yourself at all when she is called on to enter the picture. Got a resentment you’re nursing like it’s your new demon baby? Kali will help you cut the ties to your obsession and cut the crap and get accountable for your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors.

I love this goddess so much. She also reminds us to be careful of our destructive tendencies especially when it comes to seeing ourselves as victims when we act out in our addiction to codependency and misplace our rage. Her compassionate form in many ways invites us to self-forgive when we set ourselves on fire (metaphorically speaking) hoping the other person will get singed. Oh Oh.  This Mercury retrograde puts a spotlight on such madness and urges us to stop the hurtful words and step back and let the dishonesty be revealed of their own accord. You can see this in action already on the world stage. So the questions to ask yourself are: Where in my life am I still tolerating BS? How am I allowing resentments to lead me away from my purpose? Can I set myself free from the ties that bind me to the very things and people that don’t belong in my life? How do I set healthy boundaries without completely cutting myself off from the other person?

These next three weeks are not conducive to black and white thinking, rather to a strong decisive as well as a more compassionate way to finally say no and cut the ties that are holding you back from your destiny. The Goddess Kali will always help if you call on her.

Speaking of Kali, if you want to know more about her and how she came to be in the Goddess Power Oracle deck, go read our wild story on my website and be amazed.

And to help you take this topic even further, I have a short video on how Oracle Cards can help you navigate challenges that come up in your life with grace and even gratitude. Watch it now:

If you take one thing away from this video, I hope it’s this:

You don’t have to do this alone.

You can choose to pick up your cards… to pray and meditate… to ask for guidance… to cut the cords to the people and things that hold you back from your highest good.. and to feel and be present and connected to the love in the Universe that surrounds us always.

    Thank you, Colette for the insights and sincere pep talk you shared in “How to Work with Oracle Cards During Hard Times”. While we tend to think of using cards to receive insights about manifesting our future/dreams, it makes sense to also use them in helping us get thru the rough times with Grace. I also appreciate the specific questions you suggested we ask. There are, indeed gifts and treasures to be discovered along the way..💚💜💙

We tend to think of using cards to assist us in receiving insights about manifesting our dreams/future.

    This week’s cards really resonate with my own. At present I find my inner (conditioned) negative script pulling me down at this challenging cross-roads (of my health and especially career), but your Goddess cards have spared no time to send me ‘alignments’ and empowerment to challenge these thought processes. Especially Kali, who is from my own religion and it is wonderful to see her represented in such a compassionate, yet powerful form liberating women! I love the whole creation as the cards also challenge the ‘male stories’ that dominate our perceptions of such amazing Goddesses – empowering stroies I can tell my daughter! Above all, thank you for reminding me that I am not alone, but co-creating!

    Hi Colette,
    I have been enjoying your new Goddess deck for two weeks now – the insightful messages & the beautiful artwork. Thanks so much for all of your awesome light work. Did I hear you say there was an Oracle Deck on crystals/gems in the works? Hope so! Much love & gratitude to you & your team. Terry

    Really loved this reading. I have great respect for Morrghan and Kali. The first time I connected with Kali was just after I had left an unhealthy relationship/situation. Since then, she pops in once in a while and I always took it as a sign to be stronger. But now, after hearing your understanding of her, I am liberated to a new perspective of what her message is. Thank you, Colette.

    Call on Kali to Cut the Ties That Hold You Back…
    Thank you. I printed and read the information several times and I do feel.

    Each week the card’s essence seem to increasingly center on initiating inner change- perhaps in step with the Mercury Station in Pisces because it’s right at the doorstep before Aries at 29 degrees, and Chiron the wounded healer left the Pisces residency to walk with Aries — for new starts.

    I adore your week’s reading, and found my 3 personal cards completely supportive to guide and eliminate doubts. I’m accepting the message of taking my shining energy and calibrating the broken personal thoughts to not only restart but reform! like a metamorphosis and I love the thought of renaissance. That thrills me and frightens as I write till I remember KALI to the rescue!! Sever! cut. Delete. Thank you Kali of many forces. Not only does life have merit — but my heart responds thank you for your force telling me MY life has merit. Not in the sky only but here right on earth. Oh my gosh. I didn’t realize that in relating thoughts, I’d catch myself right in the act of cutting out thoughts not to engage! as you wonderfully advise.

    I’ve several of your decks. And in love with each, though the Goddess takes over presently. I am wondering about the Shaman deck I so loved and know I still do, and need to visit it too. But for this week Monday Mar 4, I pulled from your online deck. Wow. Arianrhod Celtic — Time’s my friend. Great to feel while living in changing rebirth. Then Danu of Celtic Assurance to trust the invisible grows. Lastly, Germanic Eostre signaling Yes! new Beginnings! My key’s to keep a beginner’s mind and I love this! So perfect to walk with new starts knowing the process unfolds and live with it. Be with it.

    I know this is one LONG message to you. I’ve intended to write so many weeks for the past year I’ve gratefully received your guiding energy through the many decks and cards, teaching always the intentional meaningfulness. So, I figure I better express all I need now as I may not for umpteen times forward.

    But what’s evident to me progressively, is this totally beautiful connection with the essences of source — divine consciousness. I totally always have loved mythology and so glad to embrace the entire world’s (in theory — it all takes time) senses of the unknown that speak closely and directly. Because I’m realizing every culture connects independently to similar forces through their own lens. Like Celtic Arianrhod of TIME — reminding one that time’s beyond the sickle shearing the crop. That the relationship of time and space continues to breathe through life and death phases till the fruit truly’s ready to bite. Or feed to the birds. Or juice for the whatever, but mostly to eat and savor.

    Coming through a strong astrology focus, I relate time both to Saturn and Neptune. Saturn has structure and limits of Time’s up! Netpune’s of timelessness. Two nutshell captions — but still, Arianrhod connects both to say — live through the timeframes because your dreams and energy’s all working to manifest in due time. So, I feel like she’s now part of this big family of energies — many goddesses along with so many other spirited energies that live within us — perhaps on different time zones and climates and born from lifestyles necessary to shift valuable perspectives.

    What’ I’ve said is probably pretty basic. But, the experience of feeling akin to these goddess is opening up through all your fantastic tutelage. You really bring home the truth of the natures — and cook up our moments just like life does. Thank you so much Colette. and yes, I do love the visual graphics too. Very capturing. Very important to perceive and helpful to accept their truths.

    I’m glad Yhi shines on your path to illuminate ours. With Kali as the backbone to keep feet reaching the flowers without trampling them or getting stung from choosing to sit on top of them but let bees collect nectar. Well — Kali’s a big story. Thank you for leading us through forest and fields and beyond.

    I just got to read your weekly oracle today & I just can’t believe how it tied into a youtube I was watching. All about renewal & erosion, Light, Dark & rebirth Light again. The yin & yang of life. To be grateful for all things & thank the erosion & thank the renewal. If we could balance those 2 in our lives we could face life directly & treat it with love. I really get the oracles now & why they always say something better will come. Love you! Thank you!
