A Gentle Reminder: It's Self-Care Season!


Hello everyone,

This is a gentle reminder to all of us that it's Self-Care Season!

As the holidays gain steam, it can be easy to throw all those gentle practices out the window. We may fall into old habits of people-pleasing, over-extending, or over-spending. We may feel tugged to do too much, or spend time with folks that are draining. It's time to recommit to our Selves, to promise our Inner Child that we will take excellent care of him or her. 

Remember to rest, to play, to get outside. Sleep, dream, and slow down to better enjoy your Loved Ones. When you get confused, pray or journal, make a phone call to a trusted friend or counsel. You are not alone!

This is the season to remember that when we put our selves first, we are much better able to show up for others, for the world, for each other. Keep it simple, say no when you need to, and always remember to ask for help!

Enjoy, and let your heart be warmed by the gifts of the season in whatever way serves YOU best!

Sending you love and gratitude,
Erin

P.S. I have a few openings left this week, so please contact me if you would like a reading or counseling session. If you're thinking about it, reach out now to bolster your support system, as I myself will be self-caring by camping in Nature next week :).

New Moon in Scorpio: The Hidden Gift of Resentment



On the horizon, this Sunday we have a New Moon in the fixed water sign of Scorpio, also appearing as the Serpent-Eagle or Phoenix emerging from the ashes. The Scorpion is a potent symbol of magic, transformation and metamorphosis, asking us to dig deep where we would often rather not go. We are reminded that power is often hidden as we experience the darker, shadowy emotions and states of being.


A pop astrology reference to intensity of Scorpio you will often hear is: “Scorpio holds grudges.” “To the day they die!” some folks insist. Now, is this true? Check it out, if you have a Scorpio Moon, Rising, or Sun – or if you have close friends or family in this camp. Certainly, it depends on the amount of work one has asked of themselves, for we know that built-up resentment in the body can lead to health crises, and an encrustation of deep-seated unhappiness.


We’ve all heard how important it is to “let go” of resentment, or to focus on forgiveness. The latter is a pet topic of mine. Forgiving others too quickly can simply be a “spiritual bypass,” in which we try to gloss over the pain to get to a happy ending. The result? The roots of the system are still rotten, and the disease agents continue to wreak havoc on our souls, our psyches.


Resentment feels different than the flash of rage, the rush of blood to the head or the hot immediacy of anger (another important indicator-emotion). Resentment seeps into the bones; some of us ruminate and savor our resentment – like a familiar old frenemy. But what about the gift of resentment?

I have learned to take IMMEDIATE notice when I become aware that I have a resentment toward someone, something, some situation. It doesn’t last too long, because the gift of emotion is a fast-acting one, sort of like ipecac, the substance formerly used to induce immediate vomiting to expel a poison. (The German word for poison is, literally, Gift.) The moment I am clear that I have a resentment, I know it’s time to set pen to paper, to work it through with a trusted advisor, or appeal to Self, to quickly understand where I – not the other – need to make a change.


Did you catch that? It is my own self, not the other – that person that seems to be disrupting our serenity – that needs to make a change.


We come out of victim mode, the “poor me,” the blame game. This may require us to stand up to another, even experience a very uncomfortable conversation, even (for shame!) raise our voice a tiny decibel. Of course, we can try to do it graciously, yet sometimes it gets sloppy. The important thing is this: a resentment is a sign that we need to take immediate steps to change something about our situation.


Let me repeat that:

A resentment is a sign that we need to take immediate steps to change our situation.


We may need to say no, to opt out, to quit something. We may need to request something from another, to ask for help, to speak up. We may need to stop provoking, or stop engaging with the person, or situation, that continues to get our goat.


We may need to cease having expectations about another person’s behavior, and that means letting go of hope that they are going to change. The short terminology for this, of course, is to stop shopping for bread at the hardware store.


Does this mean that we skulk away, and feel bereft, failed, empty, let down once again? No, for we learn to meet those needs in another fashion, perhaps by giving to ourselves what we are wishing for from another. We may start requesting things from another person or situation that is able to give us what we long for. And, it means that we may need to experience a spell of grieving when we are fully honest of the loss, that of another person not being who we hoped they would be. 


Resentment made conscious is so strong, so uncomfortable, that you can’t miss its cue. And it has a close cousin, called bitterness, who also bears gifts.



Bitterness: Resentment’s Tougher Cousin

Bitterness shows up like resentment but slightly colder; we now are on the verge of shutting down, closing the heart. It’s a big clue that we’ve got to go after something, to take a risk, to allow ourselves to be opened again by life. It’s a major toxin, but it doesn’t have to be – let it be a homeopathic to invoke healing. We hear of bitterness often when we hear of people shunted by love, let down by relationships, whether romantic or familial. If you notice that you’re bitter about the prospect of dating, or opening your heart in love, you may need to put yourself out there and allow yourself to go through the initiatory fires all over again – to be opened up again.


Bitterness can be used sparingly. It is a sign that something is OFF, out of kilter, incorrect or incongruent in your life. Use it, not as a resolve to stay stuck in the muck, but rather as a motivator to change your state, and do it as soon as possible. You might be scared, terrified even, but you will most certainly be brought back to life, resurrected like the phoenix, our Scorpio serpent-eagle rising from the ashes once again.





Need Spiritual Support? How to Work with Erin

As most of you know, I am a spiritual counselor, intuitive consultant, and teacher. I currently have space in my practice for two or three new clients. I am open to ongoing work with individuals, or couples, and I work via Zoom or Skype or phone with folks all over the world in several time zones. The rates are affordable when you purchase a 4-pack series of 4 hours at just $450 for 4 sessions. {This will be increasing soon so it’s a good time to get started – you can purchase as many packages as you like.} 


Frequency: I like to work with folks on average every two weeks, sometimes less, sometimes more; clearly, regular sessions seem to have the most benefit. We will usually spend ample time in a spiritual/psychological counseling capacity; I utilize the tool of tarot and intuitive readings as needed. It’s always helpful for me to know when you would like a reading, so let me know and we’ll work that into the session!

If you have any questions about my work, please email me here. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to support and guide my clients, and hope that this work benefits you, strengthens you, reassures and aids you in your blossoming and unfolding. With love, Erin
