Feeling This Week's Pressure? Here's Your Primer on Dealing

This is a BIG week astrologically so I'm reaching out.

Right now, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Ceres, and the South Node are all in Capricorn.


We have a lunar eclipse on Friday.


Tomorrow (Wednesday) Jupiter conjuncts the South Node of Karma, and Sunday the Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn conjunction (a 500-year event) I've been telling you about for weeks is finally taking place.



In short, you may be feeling a lot of pressure this week in some way, shape or form.

Capricorn is a contracting energy that applies pressure. It sends us obstacles, hardships, and slow-downs. It wakes us up to reality.


In what areas of your life have you been feeling pressured? Stressed? Or sobered?

If you have an answer to this question, let this email be a soothing note of relief to let you know you are exactly where you should be.

Roadblocks, pressure, stress, and pain suck--but they serve a purpose and they are showing up right on time.



It is no accident many of us are feeling pressure in our life or experiencing pain, hardship, or slow-down given there are so many planets in the serious and contracting energy of Capricorn right now, plus with tomorrow's Jupiter-South node conjunction and Sunday's Saturn-Pluto conjunction.


The universe has bigger plans for us.

Do you understand the meaning and purpose behind the obstacles, pain, or slow-downs you face?

How is your soul--your higher self that watches over you--urging you to transform?

Glass and metal can be shaped and formed by raising them to the hottest degree. It is only under this degree of intensity that can change take place.

We humans are the same. Often we need intense pressure to get us to change

The obstacles, stress, or pain you may be feeling right now are meant not to hurt you but to encourage you to release that which is no longer working for you and to make real and needed change for your growth and fulfillment.


  • Maybe its a mindset you need to get rid of.

  • Maybe its a person you need to remove from your life.

  • Or maybe it's a job that is outdated, that no longer serves your soul.

If you find yourself feeling stress and pressure this week, opt out of pushing harder.

Choose instead to find a moment of silence and peace where you can ask your soul what it is asking you to release.



Our goal this week is not to work harder to get through the obstacles, but to nurture ourselves through the massive transformation that our souls and the universe are facilitating for us.


The transformation will happen naturally if we let it. All we have to do is show up and be.


Feel the pain.


Take breaks.

Observe the stress.


Drink tea.

Be present to your emotions--worry, fear, anger, whatever surfaces.


Move your body.


Be kind and gentle to yourself and others.


The time for work will come, but this week, your job is to observe and rest.

Talk to loved ones you trust.


Hug your pets.


Take a power nap or go to bed early.

And find the courage to let go of what no longer serves you.


Only you can set yourself free.


Ask your soul for guidance; then quiet yourself and listen.

Agree to allow the universal energies you are feeling right now to wash over you.


The time for transformation has come.


Stay tuned for more posts than usual this week, to help you get through this intense time.
