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.
