There is a huge focus on things at home this week and a few really big key influences happening cosmically that I really want to touch on to have us all feeling prepared and ready for the next few weeks!
Ok, so this week we have the full moon in Libra (officially tomorrow), which we all know is the sign of balance and law. As we also officially entered into the Mercury retrograde period (April 9-May 3) we will find ourselves reworking things this week at home to make them feel more aligned, harmonic and balanced. This weeks messenger, our dear friend the Pig, reminds us of what we DO have and asks us to stop the search outside for MORE and to really enjoy what we already have.
Pigs are highly adaptable, able to learn new skills and acclimatise to new environments and situations with ease. With few natural predators thanks to their ability to reproduce quickly and the fact that they can eat just about anything, pigs manage to align with abundance and positive outcomes, no matter what their surroundings are, inviting us to find the abundance that is already bountiful into your life.
So how might this look? I’m feeling like this is something to do with the home and relationships - where we are perhaps being called to purge, cleanse and reassemble things to make them feel like ‘new’ and to allow new energy to flow through, rather than begin to look for a new house or new things to purchase to make it “better”. There is something about being really resourceful! Which is perfect because I have personally been feeling really drawn to implementing small changes in my life to save money and live more simply - like shopping in my own cupboards and being more creative with the food we already have, not buying coffee and throwing out unnecessary things and NOT replacing it with other unnecessary things! I’ve also really seriously been thinking about the next chapter of my life and what it might look like - and how I can simplifying it even more, moving forward. There is this kind of less is more vibe happening, are you feeling it too?!

This goes for the important people in our lives too... there will be less focus on quantity and more on quality relationships right now, where those who genuinely care for and love you may be screaming out for your attention, and we are being gently reminded that the shiny new objects around that have been distracting you lately may not exactly be there when and if times got tough (or maybe they are right now and you’re looking for support in the wrong places) - we are to remember this important message as a collective because right now we really need our community - the one we have spent hours, days, months, years creating around us. If you have been taking this for granted, the pig is urging us to honour our communities, play together, cooperate towards a common goal and communicate honestly and openly and as much as possible.
Also, if you have been drawn realign certain things in your life now, and moving forward - do not be afraid to share it! There are so many people out there waiting for permission to do the same. We are the leaders of the new age, and THE RISE OF REAL (just came up with that, it's a good one right?) means we no longer have to hid our true beliefs and desires - in fact, we should be out and proud and attracting those who feel the same way so we no longer feel alone in this space. (Hence why I started our first official TFEL facebook community!)
Seeing what we have already and appreciating it or simply just seeing it in a different light is key. This is particularly ideal for a mercury retrograde period because a lot of the time it’s all about RE words - reworking, reevaluating, revisiting, releasing, revamping, relaxing etc. It’s not an ideal time to make big life decisions or changes, but definitely not a time to feel like you can’t do anything, either. It’s nothing to be feared and it’s basically just time to just really take our time to nut things out, reconsider decisions we are fixated on and to really “clean out the closet” so to speak before we fill it back up with new stuff.
I’ve reflected on why mercury retrograde has become so popular lately and I feel we can put it down to a few things - one being that we are now heavy consumers of online communication pathways and technology - and this planet in particular really seems to tamper with these things for us, so it’s become a lot more noticeable - as well as the fact that we are also becoming less skilled in traditional communication skills and move at such a high speed in life these days that we have become more sloppy and less attentive to details. Do you agree?
There is a kind of magic in that space between finishing one thing and moving onto the next, that space really requires us to stretch in many ways that feel uncomfortable - but gosh, how good to we feel when we can look back and say “so glad I did it that way” or “so glad I took the time to really complete that thing” instead of looking back and feeling like you rushed it or didn’t give it everything you could and having to rework it again. This week, we can really sit back a bit and enjoy what we have been working towards lately and take some time out to stop and smell the roses - or at least hug a loved one who you have been missing lately.
KEY MESSAGES FOR WHOLE SELF REALISATION FOR THE WEEK AHEAD:
FEMININE ENERGY (YOUR INNER/EMOTIONAL WORLD):
Who or what is distracting you from addressing your reality? What can you take time to release this full moon about your current situation? Purging emotional attachments to people, things and whatever else in between this week will be your saving grace. Savour and nurture what you have and see how abundant you are with the few small but simply magick (and significant) things you have created yourself already. Where in life are you abundant? focus on realising this and hold it in your heart to bring more goodness in.
MASCULINE ENERGY (YOUR OUTER/PHYSICAL WORLD):
What are you ditching this week? What can you clear out to bring in balance between your personal goals and interests and that of others around you? Who and what is the dead weight and what can you physically do to let go of it? The juggle between selfishness and selflessness has been real lately, but how can we hone it in this week? Think simple. Less is more.
I hope this has resonated, please feel free to leave a comment below about what really struck a cord with you.
Big love and piggy magick,
