Clear your mind and prepare for change

By Cassandra Tyndall

There’s an electric feeling in the air this week as one of the farther-flung planets, Uranus, grinds to a halt and heads in reverse, or retrograde, from our perspective. For some, this may hallmark exciting events, sudden new developments or the plot twist of new possibilities you’ve been waiting for. For others, Uranus changing direction may symbolize a proverbial spanner in the works that could see the onset of changes you weren’t prepared for.

Whether you see change as an opportunity for adventure and excitement, or, you prefer to err on the safe, familiar and known, it can promote mental stress and anxiety. With a flurry of information, logistics or details coming through, it can be helpful to do a “brain dump.” Take out a piece of paper and write down all your thoughts, ideas, feelings or even a list of to-dos. By dumping onto paper what’s occupying space in your mind, you can feel instant relief. This exercise can help you in prioritizing and strategically planning the rest of your week, and beyond. As you sift through the details, a brilliant Sun – Mercury – Mars alignment can propel you to take inspired action about a goal or dream that’s inside your heart.
