We have energies that are both contracting and expanding us at the very same time. I mean, what the F are you supposed to DO with that? Haha! It can be like the sensation of growing inside of a container that is actually shrinking all at once.
That thought makes me think of being inside of an egg. Being a new bird, growing, but yet still perhaps not quite entirely ready to get out of the shell. It's getting really uncomfortable to be in here, and yet...we don't get to leave the egg until we are up to speed with being outside of it. The test for being ready?: that we can get out. That we have the strength and size to remove ourselves from this shell, and be outside of its protective container.
This is nature's way of keeping us safe and strong. This is the psyche's way of getting us fit for being in the situations we long for. It may seem like the shell is shrinking, but actually it is WE who are getting bigger. We are expanding in consciousness, and in desire.
We have 4 planets moving backwards right now. And, a square from the Time Lord Saturn cramping the style the Divine Child, the Sun. While these energies slow and deepen things, we also have the Sun approaching an expansive conjunction with Jupiter. That shell is feeling tighter and tighter perhaps, and we might feel like just having one big badass major temper tantrum out of sheer frustration!!! But relief may be on the way. Your job now is to focus on YOU, to get yourself up to speed for what is to come.
