Illumination: Energy for the Week of 7 October 2019
“It’s gotta be a strange twist of fate / telling me that heaven can wait / telling me to get it right this time…”
We’re teased with the lyrics to a song I haven’t heard in decades. It’s from the 1983 movie Two of a Kind, which paired Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta for a second time. The phrase “tempting fate” follows close on the heels of the song snippet. What could they mean?
“ And so the powerful tide of the turning of the wheel of the year instigates a way of tempting fate through the making of change which creates inspired actions. The inspired actions result in an alchemical way of creation, as though transforming what once was into something of newness and presence. This energy coincides with the full moon, which begs a deep transformation.”
Whee! So, it isn’t the usual context we relate to tempting fate, which indicates a risk that could wreak havoc. Instead, it’s a context which indicates a conscious decision for change that could create something truly magical in our lives.
The energy around this is hyper alive and intense, and I’m feeling it in my jaw. The impression around that sensation is that I need to hold my jaw closed before something comes out of my mouth that isn’t quite ready. I hear “incubator,” which makes sense to me, based on that energy.
It makes sense, based on that impression, that for me the result of this week’s energy may be related to communication; possibly of the vocal variety. Taking a page from my intuitive interpretations…
Where in your body do you feel this energy?
When you consider that area of your body, what form might the creation take?
And perhaps most importantly…
How will you “tempt fate” through change that creates inspired action?
May we engage with our deepest intuitive knowing and then act in accordance with it. Blessed be.
