What powerful energies seem to be present today! Perhaps it deals with this upcoming Full Moon/ Eclipse on Monday. Today we are being told to retake our power. Stop littling yourself and shrinking away from fear or for the sake of others. You have much to offer the world but you can’t do any of that if you’re not allowing your authentic self to shine like the star that you are! (Maybe that’s just my Leo sun talking ;))
If you reclaim your power then it will feel like a rebirth–a renewal. It can feel like you’re a new person but you aren’t. You are simply whole. You’re not denying an aspect of yourself to please others. I know. I have done this on numerous occasions and have only now reclaimed my own power and it can be hella scary! I constantly worry about what others will think, if I may lose someone because they don’t agree with my path but that’s their problem. Not mine. I cannot masquerade as someone I’m not simply to make them feel better.
So, my friends, focus today on reclaiming your personal power, what that means to you, and have it can help you sort of go through a cycle of renewal and newness. What are some things you can do daily to help acheive this new stage? No one said it was easy but it’s worth it.

The truth is that we are always going to have moments that test our patience, our temperaments, our emotions. This a part of life but just as a lotus is shown, we must rise above the mud and the muck. It is through these very moments we are able to choose to be wiser, kinder, and better–thereby becoming the lotus arising from the mud. Its a deeper sense of awareness that external catalysts don’t have to ripple across our peace within. This is what the fish is saying for today. Fish can be adaptable, dig deep at the subconscious, It’s about wisdom. This seems the theme for today. Wisdom of knowing that while there are always going to be trying times, conflicts with others, or actions which plague and pluck at our emotions, we are capable of rising above with a sense of awareness, understanding, wisdom, and grace (the swan energy). We are coming into our own emotional power, refusing others to steal away our peace and happiness. From stealing away any bit of our power.
In truth, we wouldn’t be fully grateful for the good moments if we didn’t experience the sour ones as well. Sometimes the bad moments seem daunting and overwhelming–as if we will never be capable of overcoming them–but this is what fear does. It puffs up the situation to appear much more terrifying than what it truly is. Don’t give in to fear. Face it with understanding within your heart and even a sense of gratitude for the learning experience.
You may be tested with these very sorts of moments today–whether it be from an event that takes place or from people. Don’t sweat it. Just remember to breathe and if needed, call upon either fish or swan energy for today. Turtle is about persistence so don’t allow yourself to be stopped–keep pushing forward. You are capable of achieving all that you hope. Allow yourself to remain centered and calm with your emotions balanced, in check, and controlled. Don’t give away your power.
