Hope you are hanging in there this retrograde. I've been hit with some of her growth pains here and there. She isn't going to leave without giving me lessons I assure you. But that's her role in the universe. The one who pokes and proves at things we must uncover to heal. She'll jab you into directions to show you new opportunities. But she also shows us that we can achieve greatness in the end. This retrograde has been especially difficult for those who came close to their goals right before only to have a drastic obstacle thrown in their way the minute the retrograde cycle started. Don't give up! This is only going to push you farther into the direction you need to be. It will help you fine tune your goals and come out the other side with a better idea of where you need to be and go.
Hell if you can make it through retrograde...am I right?
When you are up there you are alone but not lonely. You are able to see things from a distance and focus on the present.
When hiking in the mountainous woods you stay ever present. Focusing on the natural surroundings and possible dangers around you. I mean you actually have to watch out for some pretty epic animals out here. Moose, bears, snakes, you know everything my little Hufflepuff heart loves. While being present you are also able to sort out things that may have been cluttering your mind. You see yourself up there and see how small you are in comparison. It helps when you are trying to gain clarity on an issue and you can look at it objectively. We learn to feel and listen to our intuition.
Nature has a great way of getting us out of our heads and into our hearts.
I was going through all these shifts in my life but was unable to see how far I have come.
At the end of our hike we turned around to look back up the trail to see where we stood. We saw all that we accomplished, the same for our lives. Look back and see all the progress you've made and the steps that you have taken. Look at all the things you may have missed while complaining or only focusing on the bad parts. Then look at all the moments you saw pure beauty or grace. It can be a real eye opener to how we view our own lives.
It is important not only to see where we are going but also where we have been.
