It’s the 50th week of the year and the card of the week is the Knight of Pentacles. As the year unfolds, we are asked to look back on the journey and consider our victories and our losses. This year has been quite the journey through the stars and we’ve seen sine major shifts since the August Eclipse. We’ve seen a lot of clearing out of stagnation as well. As heavy Saturn prepares to shift into it’s home sign of Capricorn, we are finally seeing all the gains that we’ve experienced not just this year but since 1988. It’s not a coincidence that we have the appearance of 3 Aces this week marking the kick off of major changes and new beginnings heading our way. But first we have to take the cosmic garbage out to the curb for Mercury Retrograde to take to the dump for us. This is a time to get rid of what you don’t need to make room for what you want to draw in as you remodel your life. The number of the week is 5, a number that reminds us that even though it’s a challenge to let go, when you overcome that heavy weight, you show yourself how strong you are.
Mantra: Get strong and carry on.
