The past few days have packed quite a wallop, and this latest incredible blast of energy isn't over yet. We are in the New Moon's start up energies all day today (and to a lesser degree for the next 2 weeks), while Mercury pulls out of the storm period he's been in, and Eris's storms kick up in a very big way. Eris is going to station direct on Tuesday, yet everyone I know (just about) is already feeling this very powerful new archetype as she exerts her considerable powers over our consciousness.
Eris is definitely living up to her purpose, which is to wake us from the inside out. She has historically (I.e., mythologically) been known for her temper, her short circuit, and her tendency to stir up trouble. With everything we've learned these past few years, it is now possible to redefine her highly judges tendencies and perceive them for what they really are: a passionate devotion to raising consciousness, the mastery that does not allow for too much sleeping or laziness, and the capacity to create the upheaval that is essential to clearing away the old and preparing for the new.
Have you experienced an intense emotional upheaval in the past week or so? Not yet? Can you feel it building? Emotional upheaval doesn't have to be out of control, but it can definitely FEEL that way on the inside. I would go so far as to say that it might be best to let those emotions fly... even if they do disrupt your life a little bit. The emotional disturbances of Eris are meant to take us to higher ground, and sometimes, we are so stuck in our old emotional habits that is is nearly impossible to get unstuck.
Enter Eris. We are in Eris' storm period. Don't be surprised to find emotional disturbances everywhere you turn. Keep to your Self, as other people's issues are none of your business, even when they try to make them so. Stay as centered as you can, keep breathing, DEEPLY, and let those storms rage. They are clearing the field for each and every soul and soon we will have brand new territory to play in.
When Eris goes direct on Tuesday, she will be preparing to receive Uranus, her long awaited visitor. Together these two awakening forces will come together three times to manifest a new awakened consciousness in each and every one of us. This begins in June.
The space between now and June is the clearing space. Not the kind of clearing we've been doing, this is a clearing of our higher grounds. We are ready for it. A lot of it is going to seem strange. I don't remember the last time I cleared my higher Ground, in any way shape or form. I've been exploring it for a long while. Eris's station lets us know we have arrived, and if we're going to move in in earnest, we will need to clean it all up first.
Contemplate how much of your own higher Ground has been realized to this point. I promise you, it's a lot. You just have to look in the right places.
"You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully."
