It’s super frustrating right now.
Enough is enough!
Yet, relief isn’t going to happen. In fact, more constraints and challenges await as 2020 continues to build to its crescendo.
This New Moon adds more fuel to the already ‘burning-out-of-control’ embers, but I’ll explain how this is actually a huge gift for you.
Join me on Friday as I go live at 10:00 am ET in my True KLT group to talk about the last waves of this energy, the opportunity in it and to do yummy ritual. 😘
Tarot: Setback – 5 of Worlds
With every setback, there’s a hidden gem. The key is being able to think of it as an opportunity. You’re being tested and you can only be tested when you’re moving forward, so ask yourself:
a) Am I being tested a ridiculous amount this year, especially now?
b) Am I being tested, but not that much?
c) Am I not being tested at all?
If you answered b or c, you’re relieved.
You must be doing it right!
But, alas, that’s not necessarily the case.
If you’re doing massive amounts of healing and pushing through tons, it may be. But, if you’re not doing these things in every area of your life, then look at where you’re not pushing yourself enough.
You may still feel relief as you think you’re dodging a bullet.
Remember, you wanted to be here, in this moment, at this time, doing these things.
If you haven’t recently gone through significant transformation, you’re not doing enough on your transformational path.
It’s that simple and stark, and by the way, even if you have – what else can you bring up for healing?
2020 is here to give you tremendous gifts, but you need to be committed enough to keep saying YES.
Yes, yes, yes – to everything that’s uncomfortable, unfamiliar and unknown.
All. Of. It.
Because if you answered a?
You’re pushing forward by just the right amount.
Your transformation is happening beautifully and you’re in complete alignment with this epic opportunity of 2020.
I’m in the a) category, where are you? (I’ll tell you story in the free Facebook group.)
Let me know where you are as I’ll tailor my upcoming messaging. 😉
The July New Moon on the 20th at 1:33 pm ET is all about setback. It feels like a giant step backward with more limits and constraints due to circumstances beyond your control. The gift underneath this New Moon is actually about taking greater responsibility for your own life. There’s relative stark beauty in the configuration of this star alignment. (Sun, Moon opposite Saturn Rx at 28°)
The lower expression of the Sun and Moon in Cancer yearns for security. These 2 want to take it easy, curl up and ignore all that’s going on in the world. They want to erect barriers, isolate themselves and inoculate their feelings by overindulging in activities giving them comfort. They pander to their unhealthy sides by hiding from anything that’s too hard.
They say, “It’s not me. It’s them. What’s going on doesn’t have anything to do with me. I’m going to protect myself and my loved ones by creating space between me and them. I can’t watch the news, it’s too much. And politics? It’s not my deal. And the climate? I recycle, I do my part. And the economy? I don’t ask for much.”
How much these 2 are missing when they slide into their lower expressions!
In the higher expression, the Sun and the Moon gather all of the energy of the source of all life.
Is that all?
The. Source. Of. All. Life.
Read that again.
The. Source. Of. All. Life.
This last decade has been a universal call to reset the devastation wrought in the world.
In all areas, the ravaging inequality in every form, the all-but mass extinction of a healthy climate and the utter lack of morality. Greed has almost destroyed the Earth and her inhabitants, so here 2020 comes with a call for generosity.
Generosity of kindness, compassion and care. One for the feminine way of intuition, cooperation and creativity. One for values and integrity of home, family and love over money, power and control. One for the soul of the world.
The planets are here to put the heart and soul back into the world.
At this New Moon, Saturn is the main player.
Saturn, the father, gives you tough love, makes you yearn for discipline and responsibility. He asks you to show up, be mature and adult, even when it’s hard.
Especially when it’s hard.
It’s easy to show up when things are going well. It’s easy to be your best self when everything is in the flow, you feel really good about yourself and how things are going.
Saturn thinks showing up then is meaningless.
Think about it. When are you most proud of yourself? What accomplishments matter most to you? When someone asks to highlight the main points that gave you strength, what’s the common theme? ‘It was a really hard time’ is the usual refrain.
When life’s hard, fraught with landmines without end, that’s when it matters.
It’s hard to take responsibility, admit your flaws and mistakes, take ownership of them, heal them and move on during the best of times and these are not the best of times.
But, this is the requirement.
This is what 2020 is all about.
It’s critical to get this right.
The rebirthing of the soul of the world is at stake.
The rebirthing of you, your loved ones and as a servant to the world, others who you touch throughout your days and weeks.

New Moon Crystal:
Seek respite in Cherry Opal.
Cherry opal is of the opal family who is absorbent and reflective and teaches the karma of cause and effect. It induces mystical visions, amplifies traits, and enhances self-worth. It’s a family of love and passion.
Cherry opal asks “What’s your intuitive expression? Do you hear, see, feel or know your connection with the mysteries?” And by mysteries, I mean anything unseen, unfamiliar or unknown.
This particular stone is all about passion and creativity. It also helps you with your pursuit of living your life mission.
Amazing for a such little jewel, right?
This New Moon feels yucky after more than a week of yucky (and a ½ year, depending upon your perspective.)
However, dive deeply into your inner divinity to find the gems you’ve been keeping hidden for thousands of years.
I’m here – holding the space. It’s what I do. 😘
