Last week was pretty heavy on all of us with all of those transits and it seems like most of the issues were ones regarding the heart, sacral and solar chakra but we did get a reprieve when Saturn went direct helping us to start getting our shit together.
Oh, the Universe and its divine timing…
With all of this focus on responsibilities and getting our lives togetha, it couldn’t be a more perfect way to get like Virgo and pay attention to the little things as much as the big picture and get more in touch with our practical sides. Like they always say, “The Devil is in the details” and rolling into harvest season we know it’s time to start surveying our works and take advantage of any time we have left to make changes as we begin seeing what we may be bringing with us into the New Year.

Mercury enters Leo
Chakras Being Activated: Throat, Ears, Solar
Watch ya mouf as shit could get real if you accidentally speak fire out and burn the whole place down just because you got your little ego feelings hurt. Take this energy and do something good with it by utilizing it to speak confidence and energetic life into your goals and aspirations. Leo can be a generous and giving energy as well so make sure you are generous with your words when you are interacting with others. Mercury is a communication planet and that definitely involves how we communicate with others in the world as much as it means how we choose to communicate with ourselves. Speak kind words to yourself and each other. Keep in mind that if you speak ill of yourself and of others or if you accept ill words spoken by others that this damages your sense of will, your solar chakra and that is not something you want to become damaged. This is a very powerful chakra and it helps to give us that get up and go we need to push ourselves to the limit to reach our dreams so don’t let it get all gummed up with negativity and cease to function properly. Likewise, let’s not bash others or participate in malicious gossip that could hurt others in this area as well, remember we are all one and what actions or words your speak against another you are speaking and acting against yourself. That’s facts kid!

Mars quincunx Chiron
Chakras Being Activated: Solar, Hands
Pay attention to this one as the energy can be unpredictable with a quincunx and it is itself an intense transit. Try not to fall into selfish shit that only satisfies the temporary needs of the ego as you are prone to that kind of behavior at this time. The hands can also deal with creativity and physical manifestation so we should be using the healing energy of Chiron and the hand chakras to heal what ails us and work on ourselves. If we find ourselves immersed in self-serving behavior let it be for that reason and not for appeasing the ego or defending our swollen pride. Use this energy to try a little self-care care and as getting into it with people might result in the use of hands if you feel what I’m saying. Take it easy, take it slow and you’ll make it through.
Incense: Cedar, Bergamot
Herbal Blends: Cloves, Cinnamon
