Messages From Spirit {June 24 to June 3}

Are you feeling the shift?  Boy, has there been an energy shift after all the transitions that happened at the tail end of last week.  Between the Summer Solstice and the full moon in Capricorn, which also happened to be a super moon, things are moving!  The Capricorn full moon tends to amplify the energies of responsibility, doing what needs to be done, and getting practical and logical about things rather than emotional and sentimental.  When you add to that the power of the Solstice, a time when all life and energy hits a peak, we find that we’re in a position right now where we’re excited for changes that will have us getting shit done.  But this week we see Mercury Retrograde some into play and that always has the potential to throw things off a track a bit.  Looking at this week’s Messages From Spirit, that could happen.

This week’s reading is being done with the Oracle of the Shapeshifters by Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith.

At the start of the week we have the card [fontpress type=”webfonts” name=”Poiret One” size=”18px” lh=”20px” color=”#00B8B7″]Dragonling Garden[/fontpress].  Here a dragon shapeshifter sits under a night sky in a forest with a collection of young forest animal friends.  Behind her is a little lagoon surrounded by lush green grasses and plants.  With her are all animals of beginning and hope and she embraces them with a sense of peace.

No doubt you’re feeling some sense of renewal and hope this week as things start out.  It’s a new beginning.  It’s a time to create whatever it is that you truly desire and you have the resources to do it.  But this dragonling brings a message and a lesson too – in order to be free to do anything you want you have to be ready to be reborn.  You have to be ready to shed the old completely otherwise there’s no room for new growth to really happen.

Since we’re working with shapeshifting creatures in this deck, consider starting this transformation by shifting your perceptions.  Changing the way you look at the world.  Changing how you see yourself.  Do you see yourself as “less than”?  Do you see yourself as being incapable of making big changes?  By learning to change your mind about what you’re seeing and feeling within yourself and the world around you, you’re able to be free from the old and open to the new.



Midweek we see [fontpress type=”webfonts” name=”Poiret One” size=”18px” lh=”20px” color=”#00B8B7″]Butterflies In Gloom[/fontpress].  This is the big release – release the things that have held you back and begin to open up to happiness once again.  Here the butterfly shapeshifter is moving from one stage into another, just like how the butterfly transitions by shedding it’s cocoon and spreading its wings.

Sadness and fear can be like a cocoon.  It helps to protect us and keep us safe in some ways.  The ego loves when we’re fearful because this is when we stay in one place, don’t make changes, don’t take risks, and don’t do things to disrupt the existing flow of things.  The ego loves it but our spirit really feels dragged down and repressed because of it.

At this point in the week you’ll begin to see that you’re really losing that cocoon and that you’re free and ready to let go of the lower energies that have been holding you back. The excitement of the new world that you’ve seeing and the possibilities for yourself have a sense of joy flowing back into your life and you’re ready to ride that wave. 

{Keep in mind too that this is about the time Mercury Retrograde officially begins.}
At the end of the week we see [fontpress type=”webfonts” name=”Poiret One” size=”18px” lh=”20px” color=”#00B8B7″]The Black Cat[/fontpress].  The Black Cat is a big sign that it’s time to get things back into balance.  The changes and shifts that have been happening are all important but equally important is getting into balance with these changes.  It’s easy to get swept away in exciting shifts in our lives but this can ultimately set us up for imbalance later.

Are you feeling like this isn’t real?  Are you feeling like the shifts and changes happening within and around you are an illusion?  Do you feel like you’re making up this feeling of joy and excitement?  Do you feel unworthy?  Go back to the Dragonling Garden and remember the message there – you have to shed the old to make room for the new.  Shift your view of yourself!

It’s time to start to soften your view of things and to allow yourself to come into balance with the changes happening.  They may be happening so quickly that you hardly believe they’re real, and that’s perfectly normal!  But you need to welcome them from a place of worthiness otherwise you’ll see no real long lasting changes happen.

In The Black Cat card we see two really important and powerful allies.  The crows are messengers, coming to warn you of this impending or worsening imbalance. The black cat is a reminder for you that you hold all the magic and power within, that you can shift your life any way you desire if you harness your inner power.   Find your balance but speak your truth and own your power to do what is right for you.

Be careful because by now Mercury will be doing its thing which tends to throw us off our game a bit.  Don’t let the feelings from earlier in the week be derailed by the “mountains out of molehills” kind of thinking that comes with Mercury Retrograde.

Big changes and big shifts are happening in the energy around us right now.  You’re probably feeling it in one form or another.  Harness that excitement and that energy so you can start things new and fresh going into the summer.  You might start to feel like this is almost too good to be true because worries, problems, and pains that you may have been dealing with seem to call away easily.  Don’t second guess things too much.  When you do this and you try and find too many rational and logical reasons for why things are going the way they are you lose the magical connection to them and you take away some of the power these changes are having in your life.  Instead just go with it.  Know you deserve all the good in your life that you can stand and just find your balance in the process.
