Mid-Retrograde Check In
When values are clear, decisions are easy - Roy Disney

I received this quote as a hand-me-down from a previous employer and it's since become one of my all-time favorite, go-to quotes in times of need - especially when I am at the crossroads of making a decision.

As someone with a Gemini Moon, decision making has felt quite challenging for me throughout my life - so many choices, so many options! They all sound so great!

I have a tendency to exhaust every possible outcome and overthink my options until finally time runs out and there I am, eeny-meeny-miney-mo'ing the decision, yet still feeling uneasy about which one I ended up with. Can you relate?

So now, whenever I have a decision to make, I often refer back to that Roy Disney quote and find that the decision making process a wee-bit easier. I gain more clarity as to which direction to take, and when I make decisions in consideration of my values, I'm often delighted with the results and outcome.

I attribute successful decisions to be in alignment with what resonates in my heart and what I know (but sometimes ignore) to be true. So that old adage, "follow your heart" really does make a lot of sense. Even if my mind doesn't think so.

Venus in Retrograde: Healing Our Relationship with Money

I've had this song from, eh-hem, Snoop Lion (aka, Snoop Dogg) in my head for the past few days. It seems appropriate considering on Saturday July 25th, Venus began her 40-day retrograde journey which is inviting us to turn inward and reflect upon the Venusian themes of love, money, values, beauty, and relationships.

With the recent increased awareness and notoriety of Mercury retrograde within the mainstream culture, many people have come to fear and dread retrograde periods - especially since Mercury retrograde happens so frequently and has been duped as a troubling time that induces communication blunders, technology mishaps, delays, and frustrations.

With a cultural addiction to negative press, many people miss out on the inherent benefit of the retrograde period and the not-so-obvious blessings in disguise available during these times.

Retrograde periods are actually pretty awesome as they offer us the opportunity to review, reflect, reorganize, and reassess the themes associated with the planet in retrograde motion. Retrogrades are like a magic wand that allow us to (almost) pause time and go back to make necessary revisions so we can integrate lessons and co-create our future.

So when Venus, the planet of love, creativity, art, values, beauty and money goes retrograde, what can we expect?

Midweek Meditation: New Moon in Cancer

Yesterday (and today) the Moon has transitioned from it's Full Moon stage of two weeks ago, into its New Moon phase. The New Moon is when the Moon and the Sun are conjunct or aligned together in orbit. These two luminaries and lights in our life come together in a sacred marriage. The Sun, which represents our soul essence and ego, and the Moon, representing our inner, emotional, and spiritual essence are even more radiant in the sign they are visiting. This time of year, it's in Cancer.

Because of this we're looking at the themes associated with the Moon and 4th house, both ruled by Cancer (double whammy energy here). So we're looking at the themes of home, nurturing, protection, security, emotions, the feminine, and family.

New Moons are times where we make room for the new with deliberate intention. And right now, since we are halfway through 2015, this is an opportunity to redirect the energy of the year to complete intentions we set in January.
