This month the unusual and highly potent astrological configuration of a Grand Cross or Square of opposing energies between Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, and Mars will be at the height of its influence. Since this will be the most dominating energetic influence this month we thought it might be helpful to pick out some of the more important themes that it might bring to the fore, together with some essences to help.
Firstly by its very nature this configuration is bringing the energy of confrontation to the fore, so if we still have issues around the balanced use of power they could well show up this month. Some of the more common expressions of this issue are the need to be right, power struggles or control issues. These are all issues of the solar plexus chakra so if you find yourself embroiled in any of these well worn habits this month consider a 25ml Solar Plexus Chakra combination to help you come back into balance. Either Male Essence; strengthening masculine or Heart Chakra combination would be helpful as a follow on for this issue.
Old issues related to lack of balance in relationships could also come to the fore in this energy, particularly where there is a lack of trust, unresolved anger or left over feelings of resentment. Helpful essences here would be Healing Relationships; restoring intimacy & trust, Letting Go; dissolving attachment, Inner Peace; transforming anger, or Self Responsibility; transforming resentment.
Another theme in this energy configuration is the collapse of the old to make way for the new, so it is possible that we might begin to see the demise of old systems in the world that we have previously relied upon. This is clearly a positive process in the long run but could trigger old fears around survival and lack if we get too caught up in the moment. In this situation choose Inner Calm; transforming fear, Courage, or Base Chakra.
Sudden, unpredictable events and unexpected changes are another possibility in this month’s interesting energies, so with this in mind we are going to finish this month with a reminder of how useful a well chosen combination of Bach Flower Remedies can be to help quickly restore balance and equilibrium in unexpected and difficult situations. Amongst Dr Bach’s 38 remedies there are sure to be 7 or 8 that will resonate with how you are feeling in any given situation. Mix these into a treatment bottle and take a dose at least 8 x a day, more often if the need is acute. In a very short space of time you will feel more balanced and able to respond appropriately to any situation you might find yourself in.
If at any time you need help with choosing the best essences for yourself please do be in touch, we are always happy to advise.
