For the past few weeks, I have been feeling completely out of sorts. And it’s no wonder, as not only has the Lion’s Gate portal been opening, we have also been dealing with a whopping 5 retrogrades.

And did I forget to mention that last month was eclipse season? Excuse me while I jump into a pit of sage, crystals and other miscellaneous measures of spiritual protection.

Currently, Saturn will remain retrograde until September 18th, Jupiter until August 11th, Neptune until November 27th, Pluto until October 3rd, and Chiron until December 12th.

As Saturn and Pluto reconstruct our core values, Neptune has been pushing us to be our most authentic selves. However, with Jupiter’s ‘out of the box’ energy, we have also been pushed to reflect on our experiences, learn from them and creature true change in our lives. And no matter how much you want to change, unless the change you wish for aligns with the change the planets have in store, you may be finding that you simply cannot push forward.

To add insult to injury, we just now left the shadow phase of Mercury, which brings our darkest parts of the self to the surface, revealing it for the world to see.

And the Lion’s Gate portal, it lifts the veil between the spiritual world and the physical world, allowing for communication between ourselves and our spirit guides like never before. If you have been noticing a lot of synchronicity, an immense feeling of tiredness that seems unending, and the feeling that you are completely out of place – it’s likely your guides are trying to tell you something.

Right now, the best advice that can be given is to reflect, to plan and to provide self-care. Sit down, and write down the worst parts of your self. How have you worked to transform and how have you been your own setback? Now, you must understand that now is not necessarily the time to act. Instead, it’s time to reflect. What are your spirit guides trying to tell you? How are they insisting you change?

The full moon in Aquarius will be upon us on August 15th and will be the perfect time to actually begin working to create change. For now, a wounded soldier, allow the healing energies of the universe and your spirit guides to guide you to where you most need to be. If you pay attention, they will lead the way.
