Let It Be

May 3, 2016

CaliBeachWhen I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
~ Paul McCartney

No idea why, but this song’s been playing in my head on and off for weeks now.

My energy’s been all over the map, and with it, my moods.

Maybe it’s Mars retrograde: We’ve got to be ready to move with whatever energies are flowing in a given instance.

On top of Mercury’s retrograde in Taurus, which is an excellent opportunity to carefully review which conditions have changed and/or are changing, to meticulously reconsider whether the modest steps we’ve lined out still make sense… and to just generally reconnect with the current state-of-affairs.

And to have both at the same time:

Still, to have both these fast-moving bodies simultaneously relegated to the temporary limbo of retracing their recent zodiac steps doubly emphasizes the ‘pause, reconsider, regroup’ themes associated with personal-planet retrogrades. If obvious forward advances and developments don’t proceed as smoothly or swiftly over these weeks ahead, then, it would make perfect sense. Clearly, we have some unfinished business, unresolved tensions, lingering questions, and/or scrambled specifics to revisit first… and this is the ideal astrological time to do just that.

“Let It Be” going through my head feels like a sign (like Doreen Virtue said to look out for this week). I’m recognizing that these backward movement energies are asking me to slllllooowww the f down.

Review, revisit, etc, but more so to relax, rest, go inward. To really be quiet and listen, to figure out what my truth is.

This already feels true the last week or so. Out come the journal, the journaling course, the tarot cards, and the podcasts. I’ve gone deep, cried my eyes out, been coached on certain issues, and resurfaced with a calmer, better understanding of who I am right now.

I’m sure these retrograde vibes aren’t done with me yet, but I can feel I’m being molded, challenged and moved in a new direction. To get the most out of this process, I need to slow down and surrender, not thrash against. (Oh no, the thrashing last week did nothing but bind me tighter to my suffering).

I need to let it be

(Bonus: Let it be also showed up when I read some Noisy Plume archives)
