Energies of Now: Live Wires in the Muse Pool, and Timely Questions

As I write this, the Energies of Now are heavily spiced with Airy, Mental electrical currents and a beautiful now-waning Grand Water (Mystic, Imaginal) Trine, with a tiny bit of Earth and Fire on the side. Live wires in the... Continue Reading →

Energy Weather: Waves, Recalibrations, and NarciPath Management

Energies of Now: Your Odyssey and Neptune (and Pals) Magic

The Energies of Now are taking on more Fire, where we’ve had an ocean of Water in recent weeks, though the sensitive, watery, tidal essence of the Neptunian-Piscean is still very much in play.

That said, it’s good to note that Fire and Water create steam, or hydro-thermal baths, or boiling water, or doused passion, etc. … actually, and metaphorically speaking.

So lest we Go All Mars (Fire) and bubble over, or get too steamy (in less than helpful ways), or feel like there’s still a wet blanket on our energy and passion, here’s an Energies of Now update.

Fire and Water will continue to be foremost elements in the Energies of Now, so this is a timely reminder … and an Orienteering clue-guide as well.

What’s bubbling for (and in) you?

Read on, and see what stirs into your awareness.

Wishing you happy and wise navigating as we ready for a new season … and a new (astro and seasonal) year’s Vision Quest and Hero/ine’s Journey.

Odyssey
noun od·ys·sey ˈä-də-sē

: a long journey full of adventures

: a series of experiences that give knowledge or understanding to someone

1:  a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune

2:  an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest (Merriam-Websters Dictionary)

Sounds like life, doesn’t it — the long journey full of adventures, changing fortunes, new understandings, and gravitas-creating wisdom?

Or so we would hope, in any case.

We’re each on our very own Odyssey, and we’re on a collective Odyssey, too, in these wild and wily transformative times.

The mythic-astrology language for the archetypal energies at work now includes:

Neptune in Pisces,

• Uranus in Aries,

• Pluto in Capricorn — and their epic ‘square’, waning but still in effect, and

From what I’m feeling, experiencing, and hearing from a fair number of peeps, it’s a fine time for an Energies of Now update.

I’ve heard quite a few, “Oh thank God! I thought it was just me who was feeling (fill in the blank).”

I feel ya, truly I do.

That’s how it is, and that’s why we share. Compadres on the wild and wily Way.

Rather than recreate the wheel, I’ve updated a post that had a relevant ‘symptoms list’ and roster of helpful practices to ride the wave.

So here we are, my fellow Chaos Surfers and Transformativas!

Big Love,

Oh yeah, it’s been a doozy of a few days. Or week. Or more.

Peep-reports from the field, which sync with my own experiences and/or observations of those around me, suggest a Zap-Zone with a very stirred up, mucky shared field.

So after several requests for an Energies of Now ‘energy weather’ post, here it is. Truly, my pleasure.

First, the symptoms.

Second, possible energy/psychic ‘cocktail’ elements or influences.

Third, some self-care suggestions that I and others have found helpful … and regularly practice, update, upgrade, and tweek.

The Symptoms and Experiences

Sensitives, or people wired just so, who have shared energy updates with me report experiencing the following in the last week:

• unusual physical symptoms,

• waves of sadness or melancholy … some of them coming and going quite suddenly,

• disrupted sleep, disturbed dreams,

• free-floating underlying angst…

Resources for Empaths and Sensitives Series

The Light of the World (detail), by William Holman Hunt, c1900-1904. (Image courtesy of WikiCommons)‘Tis the season, given the ‘thin time‘ of All Souls and Samhain days coming up at the end of the month and early November — and the general Transformation Times Zap Zone energies we continue to live in and dance with.

Here’s an updated Resources for Empaths and Sensitives Series musing, along with the link to the garden-bouquet of posts for Sensing-Empaths and other energy sensitives, and transformation-catalyst kindred spirits who are feelin’ it just about now.

Big Love and Thin Times Blessings,

Ahhh, to be an actual, ‘just wired that way’ Empath — One who is naturally made to be more sensitive to the energy currents (subtle and not-so-subtle), including the thoughts and  emotions wafting and swirling around us at any given moment.

To be a Sensing-Empath, oran Empathic-Sensitive as some might say, is to have a set of unique innate gifts or medicines for our times.

In this case, Empathic Sensitivity is an inherent or natural trait — the way we’re made — not a learned-behavior.

But the inherent capacity to actual sense and feel subtle and ‘unseen’ energies? That’s innate, not taught.

I’m not sure — in fact, I don’t actually think — that actual empathy can be taught, though certain awareness or ‘having a clue’ might be increased, and skillful communication and interpersonal behaviors taught (or mimicked).

That said, empathic sensitivity may not always feel like a gift…

[I wrote and published the original post way back on August 28, 2012, and have updated it several times a year since, including late-September 2015 … because yes, it’s a timeless “new normal” topic in our wild-energy times!]

The energies have really been swirling and whirling again, and there is more ‘energetic unsettlement’ underway.

Have you been feeling it?

If you’re an empath or ‘energy sensitive’ — a minority percentage of any population who is naturally ‘wired’ to pick up on subtle energies — the answer is probably a definitive ‘Yes!’ I know that’s been the case for me.

In various energy alchemy and insight-checkin or even visioning sessions with clients, I regularly notice that the energy field in general was intermittently either more chaotic or the opposite, more flat-line, than I’ve seen and sensed it in a long while.

No wonder we might be
