A touchy feely flashlight for illuminating the path you’ve traveled and your way forward into the future, this episode is an exploration of what we “carry” and how we can wield it with more consciousness and clarity. Bess and Sandy deep dive into personal pasts and memory, ancestral inheritance and patterning, and our collective responsibility for examining shared histories. The conversation covers how to handle and hold the emotional intensity of memories as they arise, dealing with regret, and reframing our stories in the service of communal healing. Get ready to shimmy with your ghosties and make good with all that’s gone down!
Inside your cosmic snack pack:
The Elements (00:07:55): Each of the four elements has a temporal orientation towards the past, present, or future, and understanding your own elemental balance can help you unlock how you process experiences.
Pluto (00:11:50): The higher octave of the planet Mars’ personal power, our Pluto chart placement uncovers how we can give up some of the controls and let ourselves get “moved” by big feelings, learning to tell the difference between the memories that are ours to integrate and what is no longer ours to carry.
The 4th House (00:23:50): The sign on the 4th house cusp is your gateway into the personal past, and this key can help you grapple with the stories you’ve inherited from your family of origin and how to reframe them in service of your most integrated self.
