Mars is retrograde in Gemini, the sign of language and communication as well as the assimilation of our experiences through thought. Mars is in a challenging square aspect to dreamy Neptune right now which can be confusing, but it also offers an opportunity to use language to generate magic.
In my practice I am often gifted with the opportunity to help a client find a new direction in their lives, and often this comes through words. For example, in 2012 I posted an article about a reading with a client who had been working on her own personal transformation and learning techniques to help other people to evolve and connect with their own divine power within them. When she talked about the work that she was doing and her excitement about shifting her work life into more transformative work like this her entire face lit up and it was clear that this was her soul work.
Still, she lacked confidence and was afraid to take those steps to move forward and make this shift. This is so true for many of us! She told me, “I pray about it every day.” In her prayers she has been asking “why am I still stuck, what is keeping me from moving forward.”
In the 1990s when I was developing the work I now call Visioncrafting™ Tony Robbins was a guru of mine (before he fell off the pedestal as gurus so often do). In any case, one of the most important lessons he teaches is that to get the right answers you have to ask the right questions. If your questions run along the lines of “why does this always happen to me,” you will tend to reinforce the feeling of helplessness because you will have an answer for why you continue to suffer negative consequences. A better question would be “How can I find a way to make choices which will bring me the results I want.”
In the case of this client, we changed her prayer to instead ask for clarity around the next step that needs to happen in order for her to move forward into her dream. So if you’re feeling stuck and looking for the key to open the door to your own magical transformation, take a closer look at the questions you are asking. By harnessing the power of language, we can shift our beliefs in what is possible, and open our awareness to the unexpected. And in that opening, the real questions, those that lie beneath the assumptions, can be answered. ❤️
