The picture I have this week with Saturn and Mercury Retrograde so close together is a wise grandfather walking a young child home. This kind grandfather doesn’t talk down to the child, instead he serves it up clearly as one human being to another. As a result, you see the child stand taller, walk with more confidence as understanding and self-respect emerges. That’s what’s possible. Or you could stay committed to being a child and have a big old meltdown. It really is your choice. It helps to know you have that choice, and if you do have a bad moment, you can also recover. The one thing I will say, though, is Saturn brings consequences. Long-term consequences are likely. So take a breath before you blow or shut down, you may be very, very glad you do.
Consequences show up this week as the same trigger is presented to you again and again and yet again, until you take responsibility for your emotions, your reaction. Remember the definition of insanity and instead do it differently when that trigger reappears. If someone has an issue with you, take a good look at what the issue is. It is there for a reason. You may flat out disagree with their issue, and it still calls for something from you rather than a reaction or over reaction. How can this conflict teach you more about the empowered adult you are now instead of the wounded child. If you feel victimized in any way, your inner child needs a wise, loving hand to help get back home. You are not powerless and they are really not (usually) trying to hurt you. Disagreement between people is normal and natural. How you handle it can really mature this Mercury Retrograde and especially this coming week.
2017 ripped the bandaid off the festering wound from your younger years. While it may sting when ripped off the fresh air and light only improves that old injury day by day. Instead of seeing difficulties through those young, helpless eyes this week, take inventory of what you did right, what you would change and where you can stand in the Truth of you for everything else. Then manage your own expectations, firmly and compassionately. Alos, hand back expectations to those who’ve put them on you and get through this week with less blowouts and more holiday cheer. I love to share my colleague Rhonda Britten’s definition of expectations as being premeditated resentments within you. Come this season, high hopes can too easily tip over into expectations and set everyone up for more tension and conflict. Try doing it as an intention instead, something you do for yourself rather than putting a load on someone else. Aha, there is maturity ahead when you do. The Cards and Stars can help…
P.S. If you are seeing this and you don’t normally get my weekly updates, it’s because this week was so important I wanted everyone to have good guidance to weather the bumps for the days ahead. So enjoy and if you want this delivered to you instead of checking back, you can get that for less than $.50 a week. Get yours here

Card of the Week: The Hooded Man
This Wise Old Hermit is perfect as the face of Saturn this week. Mercury Retrograde has us turning inwards in Sagittarius to fact check what we believe, why and if it is still relevant in our lives. The guiding light from the Hooded Man says that you and you alone know what is for you versus what is not for you. That isn’t information anyone else can give you. In fact, you get into real power struggles in relationship to when either person fails to own that core Truth. It has to work for you or it won’t stand the test of time in a relationship. The challenge comes in when you want what works for you to work for someone else. That isn’t always possible and this week you discover options on how to handle it when there are differences that have to be negotiated. At least, that’s the possibility. The potential requires you to choose it. For those who wish to go dark rather than listen to their wiser self, this week reveals what a cold and lonely path that will be. The Universe offers you course correction if you’ve been stuck in the blame game anywhere in your life. Instead of blame, take charge of what you will do in any situation in a way that feels right to you. What you look at, try to understand, acknowledge for yourself or others and take a step in that direction. You’ll like the feeling of power even if the unfamiliar road is a little unnerving. You aren’t alone on it for very long. We are all just walking our young selves back home to the place in you that knows yourself and lives from there. There are more and more people on this same path. So use this week well and your personal reflection has a real gift for you.
Tarot for Day 1 (12/11/2017) Two of Stones
Two’s are always about partnership and stones are the body so this is where real differences of opinion show up. Mercury, our Winged Messenger is in easy aspect to Eris the Goddess of Discord, so chances are things will get stirred up today but only so that you can soothe them out. The Moon and Venus are hanging out to help bring conflict to a more harmonious relationship. Doesn’t that feel better? It’s a chance to see the other persons point of view and acknowledge it even if you don’t agree or see it the same way. Let them know they’ve been heard and check to see if they can return the favor. Explore what fresh collaboration is possible from your own individual places. The differences between you can help bring about a new option somewhere between your two views that enriches you both. It matters that you explore how protection and defenses kept you in conflict rather than relationship. See your part in anything that happened and you will be richly blessed with this point of view.
Two’s are a starter number, so just head in that direction today rather than trying to get it all figured out in one leap. Better to agree that is the goal and take a few steps together in that direction while it all unfolds. This new point of view, shared between you, is a great beginning.
Stay curious today if any conflict arises and navigate the disagreement from this place, see what’s possible.
