Magickal Oh-no! Day
This Magickal Day is powered by Death.
And, yes, I know you didn't want to hear that. So you will just have to trust me when I tell you that, while mighty shakeups of the status quo are likely, the big transition that this major archetype refers to need not be The Final One.
But do take seriously the fact that an energy this big and inevitable will produce sweeping changes. For some of you, that's exactly what you've been praying for, and you can plunge into these liberating changes and finally go where you've been hoping to go. For others, adjusting to change will be more challenging, threatening or, at the very least, not immediately satisfying.
Some "secret sauce" help on the way: The usually formidable forces of repression (external or internal) might be caught napping today. You can take a chance, skip past them and do what you want.
Use the dynamic energy of the times to help you courageously examine aspects of your surroundings, life situation, beliefs and habits that might be crying out for major overhaul. If the pace seems too fast, keep focused by cracking open a journal and writing down what's happening, how you feel about it, what thoughts and ideas come to mind, what's becoming clearer to you, what commitments you feel ready to make and what incremental steps you are willing to take. If you get stumped, keep writing whatever comes to mind next. Keep your hand moving. That's change, too.
At some point, find some wonderful, safe resource--perhaps your meditation practice, or a massage or bodywork, or a loving chat with a family member or friend--that can give you a momentary time out, a respite from this process. Settle in, catch your breath for a while, and you will feel stronger and clearer when you return to it.
