Finding Harmony Between Instinct and Ego

Inner turmoil begins and ends with imbalance. When your intuition says one thing, but your impulses scream another, we find ourselves stuck in the crossfire, and quite often, take a bullet.

This eclipse season has been a time for great reflection and transformation. But, it is a lot of energy to deal with if you aren’t in the correct headspace to do so. So, how do we channel it and figure out what needs work in our lives?

Well, when we are constantly running into situations that end up in hurt, be it friendships, relationships, or work, it’s usually because of a miscommunication between the ego and our instincts. Our ego wants us to fulfill our desires quickly and without strategy, and our intuition is built into us as a means of survival.

When you get into a relationship or new job without careful consultation of your intuition, there’s a HUGE chance that you missed some red flags. And when those red flags turn into flame throwers, it’s time to take responsibility for the things that we’ve overlooked.

Take the High Priestess as your spirit guide. Consult with your gut before you move ahead with matters of the heart OR your pocket. Your gut is not your anxiety. It’s not your heart. It’s not your ego. It is the thing that tells you to look past a shiny facade. Take full account of what you’re actually seeing and TRUST it. If you get an icky feeling about a person or opportunity, but you hush it away because you think you know better, I’m telling you right now that you don’t.

Temperance is key in these matters. Balance between your ego and your intuition. Your ego WANTS the best for you. It wants your wishes fulfilled and to see you soar. But, like a kid in a candy store, will over look the end result of getting sick from shoveling down sweets. Your intuition KNOWS what will keep you safe, and the harmony between the two will send you vibrating higher than you’ve ever imagined. Stay balanced, and stay witchy ( *)

 

WednesdayWisdoms: Eclipse Season Survival Guide

eclipse

This eclipse season is INTENSE witches!

With the full moon eclipse in Aquarius and the upcoming solar eclipse in Leo, we’re headed for an emotional and full throttle ride.

Since I had no post on Monday, I’ve decided to just craft a mini-survival guide for the next couple weeks, in lieu of a self help exercise according to the topic of the week.

Within all of this big big energy, we’re going to encounter three major things that will throw us for a loop. Here they are and how to keep your head on straight through it!

  1. Feeling vulnerable: 
    • This eclipse season is going to crack your soul open in a deep way. This may leave you feeling unsafe or scared. Just remember to not shrink up. Change is amazing and transformative, and the epiphanies at this time can help to lead you on a new and vibrant path. Use your judgement and proceed with caution in your day to day, and remember to be gentle with yourself, but ultimately embrace the tide.
  2. Acceleration: 
    • Life is MOVIN ladies! Quickly, I might add. In the face of a fast pace, I suggest taking a step back. Take things slowly, carefully, and deliberately. Try not to get swept up in anxiety and make impulsive moves that may land you in hot water. There is always time to breathe.
  3. Confusion:
    • With a period of night and day becoming one, there is a lot of confusion running about this season. A great way to find clarity is to journal journal journal. If you use a notepad to structure your thoughts, you will find more ease in your days. This is a great time for regular meditation as well.

All in all, I wouldn’t go into eclipse season feeling afraid. Just prepare yourself with the right tools and stay cognizant of why certain feelings may be coming up. Stay level headed and stay witchy ( *)
