Go Your Way

Go Your Way August 13, 2017
We begin this week with Mercury in Retrograde, a chaos filled world, meteor showers, and an upcoming full eclipse. 
-Between today and tomorrow are graves, and between promising and fulfilling are chasms.-I awoke to the sunshine through the glass pane echoing the songbird’s joy. As I lay in bed listening, the pangs of energy circled around as if a chain smoker was puffing one after another. The pain in the world is being stirred by fear, hate, and hurt and even those not privy to the typical empathic vibrations seem to be picking up on the mood.

I once accidentally added too much salt to a recipe. I was just learning to cook, my mom’s eyes faltering into her own world of darkness, and I was worried she’d be mad. We didn’t have much and to throw away a portion of my dad’s Friday paycheck to my mistake was unacceptable.

“I’m sorry, mom,” I apologized, tears running down my face.

“That’s okay, Kristy, you simply add a dash of sugar to counter the saltiness,” she calmly explained.

I did what she instructed and it miraculously worked (I later learned that everything from sugar to vinegar to lemon juice, depending on the dish, can also offset too much salt). I reacted instead of looked for a solution. I assumed rather than asked for help.

We are now in Mercury Retrograde {more on that here} and for the next couple weeks it’s going to be easy to throw the dish away and cry over spilled salt. It’s easy to get caught up in the hate of the world, the anger of your life, the sadness of the past, but is it worth it? Sometimes adding a bit of sugar to your life, not in the candy bar or wine kind, but the love kind, can help make the dish tastier. Is it easy? Nope. Is it easier to be caught up in the tsunami of fear and hate? Absolutely. But go your way, not the way everyone else wants to push you or distract you to go. It’s up to you to find the beauty in your days; otherwise if you rely on others you will be continually disappointed.

I wish you love, healing, and peace.
