If you were challenged to find some groundedness a couple weeks ago when Jupiter squared Neptune, take heart:
This Thursday, January 31, you can find some new footing with Saturn sextile Neptune.
Saturn asks us to do the work. It helps us to find our sense of duty in the world and rewards those who put in the effort. With Saturn sextile Neptune, we can all make progress within our spiritual paths and spiritual work.
For anyone who has a spiritually-based business, or performs acts of service or healing, this can be an auspicious time. Especially if you have been challenged by blurred boundaries, demanding clients, or unrealistic expectations.
In this world where we are taught that the “customer is always right,” it’s very difficult to know where that rule begins and ends. From a consumer side of things, many people have confused the message with thinking that they can buy their way to rudeness. And when companies of all sizes are willing to accommodate anything less than respect towards their staff, it can give people a serious superiority complex.
They start to think they can get away with anything they want, and that every demand should be met.
But if you’ve ever been on the receiving end of such behaviours (and so many of us have), you know that realistically, everyone has their limits.
We can only do so much. We can only say “yes” so many times before we run out of time and energy to commit to it all. We can only give if we are taking time to refill our own reserves.
This week gives each of us the chance to see where our acts of service – whether they are personal, or professional – are coming from a sustainable place. If not, take some time this week to firm up your boundaries, look at what you are ready to stop doing, and let yourself say no where it’s necessary.
This is also a great time to map out any spiritual goals for yourself at this time. If you want to deepen your devotion to an existing practice, explore a new path, or connect with your deities or guides for their support with a special plan, set some time aside this week to reflect on those dreams.
On Saturday, February 2, we welcome Imbolc. This is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox.
“My acts of service are stronger when I sustain myself.”
Until next time,
