Jupiter in Libra 2016-2017

The Great Benefic Jupiter enters the sign of Libra on September 9th 2016 until October 10th, 2017. The recent transit through Virgo since August 11, 2015 has been an excruciating one on planet earth, although many useful things came of it. Mercury Retrograde has been in close contact with Jupiter in its late degrees through this sign since late August 2016, reminding us of all the loose ends that need to be tied before we can move on. The focus since last Fall has been on making corrections, cleaning up the messes made by those who came before us in addition to those we ourselves have made, working darn hard for minimal reward and trying to dodge all of the incessant nitpicking and fault-finding in ourselves or others – all a fancy, long-winded way of saying that Jupiter exiting Virgo is like saying “Good Bloody Riddance!”

Relationship Highlights

Jupiter in Libra accentuates a love of art, beauty, romance, and the finer things in life. Partnership goals will become prominent and possibly quite successful. Professions and pursuits related to business collaborations, fashion, interior design, music and the arts in general will find greater expression during this Jupiter transit than the previous one.

Lonely folks, take heart because your power animal, cool kids, or significant other might soon appear! Those whose relationships are on the rocks, don’t fret – even if it’s time to part ways the parting could be more amicable than expected. Just don’t expect any relationships to be “normal” in the months to come, whatever that means to you. There are likely to be a lot of quirks and exceptions to the rules made. Since Jupiter encourages more and more and more of a thing wherever he transits, the result in Libra could be polygamy, being torn between two lovers, leaving one relationship and jumping into another, benefiting from the wealth of a partner, friends or lovers going into business with each other.

Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) have been heavily impacted during the past four years to the Uranus-Pluto square and myriad other factors. My fellow Librans out there feeling worn out and war-torn may be sensing that things are finally about to shift in their favor. Yes, it’s true! It’s not just wishful thinking this time but things are really changing for the better for a change. Before getting out those pretty teacups and making party arrangements though, there are a few things to be aware of. We must not and cannot avoid the darkness, after all Libra is about both balance and contrast. It is also about confrontation.

With Jupiter in Libra our attention will be drawn toward working through all of our relationship dynamics – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the ecstatic. All that is Libran, including charm, courtship, and marriage will be highlighted in the year to come. We’ll also be dealing with or witnessing disagreement, divorce and endings of relationship situations that just don’t work anymore. Unfinished business will reach completion. Old contracts will be broken, and new commitments will be made.

Jupiter does absolutely nothing in a small way but heightens our experience of any given sign and aspects being made to other planets. Jupiter in Libra will be spending a large portion of time in an opposition to Uranus in Aries from the Winter Solstice in late December 2016 until the Spring Equinox in Late March of 2017. Many surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant will come through other people during this time, and then again in late September. Jupiter will move into a pushy square with Pluto late Spring in effect until late August of 2017. Power trips could lead to destruction or stimulate higher ways of communicating and coming to agreements without the compromise of personal values.

The transit of Jupiter in Libra might be fun in some ways but will probably not be all fluffy like a bunny or bouquet of flowers. It will reveal what divides us just as much as it reveals what unites us, and why. It will reflect back to us the lines that have been drawn between race, creed, gender, and class. It will very likely ask each of us the highly uncomfortable question, “Which side are you on?” in whatever divided situation we may find ourselves in. The fence won’t hold up anymore. There are choices to be made in how to resolve conflicts and achieve harmony and fairness.

Social Justice

Both secret admirers and enemies could suddenly make themselves known during Jupiter’s trip through the sign of the Scales. The other side of the story will be spoken, whether anyone wants to hear it or not. Not to mention, the turning of tables in unjust scenarios (or evening of the scales) with a ferocity that nobody saw coming may be delivered straight from that hard fist of iron adorned in baby soft velvet. Isn’t that special.

Those who couldn’t handle Jupiter in Virgo’s pokes and jabs might want to brace themselves, for the next couple of years actually. I wanted this to sound super diplomatic but that’s not always the way things roll… those who have been running away from truth or thinking they can get away with murder might want to basically get ready for a massive “Shut up bitch, and listen.” session from the Cosmos. The transit of Jupiter in Libra could offer such people the perfect opportunity to come clean about something, make a confession or make amends for previous wrongdoings, but very few will be forced into such confession. The decision to come clean is best made from within.

In the world of politics Jupiter’s activities indicate foreign policies, government and laws in general. Peace is what We want so badly with anything in Libra. Jupiter here could certainly raise ideals while simultaneously stirring the pot. That man’s man gets his huge hand in there just in time for the elections. Therefore, it doesn’t look like peace and harmony is what we’re in for on the whole. Violence could easily just go back-and-forth with nothing getting accomplished other than harm. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, an arm for an arm. Threats both real or perceived will be reacted to in big ways.

I sincerely hope that Native Americans are able to successfully protect the land from the US government’s further oil drilling in what has been called the “largest Native protest in history“. Anyone who would dare continue to rape and pillage the earth in this way is utterly insane, and None of us should be the enablers of such atrocity.

Jupiter almost joins forces with Saturn early on but it’s just not happening until August of 2017. Surely, we can try our best to be ready for enough excuses – enough ifs/ands/buts/somedays/and maybes to drive us barking mad, while exercising our abilities to stay calm and faithful in that morbid state of being called Limbo. There’s still so much to learn about relationships, negotiation, what’s fair and people’s rights versus the so-called Rights of the People. What “People”?

Last time Jupiter transited Libra between September 2004-October 2005:

  • George Bush got reelected as president just after a video of Osama Bin Laden threatening the USA with terrorist attacks and taunting Bush was widely broadcast.
  • The battle with Iraq and the Middle East continued. The US launched attack in Fallujah. The US Consulate was attacked in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. A US military base was attacked in Mosul, Iraq, and then a second battle of Fallujah took place.
  • North Korea let the USA know in no uncertain terms that it possessed nuclear weapons that it wasn’t afraid to use in self-defense.
  • Mark Felt, at age 91 and three decades later finally publicly admit to his anonymous role in leaking details regarding Nixon’s Watergate Scandal. He was the one referred to as “Deep Throat”.
  • There were several intense hurricanes that had devastating impacts on many homes and lives, with Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 being the deadliest. Since hurricanes exist partially due to raging winds, this is one of the dangerous natural manifestations of an afflicted air sign.
  • On the lighter side, Youtube went online for the first time. Uranus in Aquarius in harmonious trine to Jupiter probably had something to do with this.

I imagine that there are going to be some major Wizard of Oz type awakenings, whether for better or worse. The little guy on the other side of a screen holding up a puppet whose shadow appears enormous could finally be exposed. Perhaps he is smacked with an onslaught of tomatoes. Perhaps he discovers that he is far more entertaining and respected as he is than the show he has been putting on.

The Law of Attraction

Whatever we put out during Jupiter’s transit through Libra, we will get more of, so let’s choose wisely. It doesn’t matter whether one believes in karma or not. What I’m talking about is simply the law of returns. Cause and effect. The Law of Attraction has become a catchy New Age title referring to the fact that our focus tends to determine the quality of our experiences overall. We attract into our lives what we are most feeling, expressing, giving, and doing. Like attracts like, but so do opposites. Libra enjoys controversy and contrariness and there will be plenty to go around.

In the areas where there has been stalling, hesitation or failure to act due to fear, we will be challenged to rise to amazing new opportunities being opened to us. This doesn’t mean we should take every offer or put ourselves on the line. It just means we need to get out of our own way and get on with it.

In general there will be an inclination to relate to others in harmonious and gregarious ways. People will enjoy gift giving and celebration. With Jupiter in Libra we stand a high chance of actualizing our desires, particularly those that include others. When we we recognize our truth, our allies and our abilities we go for the gold!

Uranus in Aries – Urgency in Action

Just making some rearrangements while Mercury is Retrograde 🙂 This was posted August 2011 but first written March 10th 2011 (before the tsunami hit Japan)

Posted on New Earth Astrology at 2:36 PM

On March 11th 2011, Uranus will enter the sign of Aries, full steam ahead, for the next seven years. Right now, people are standing up for what they believe in, and aren’t backing down any time soon. With Uranus in Aries people will continue to raise their voices, act on their impulses and fight for their freedom like never before. As an example, the recent events in Egypt have bypassed the threatening presence of Al Qaida, counteracted by great fury as well as verbal and mental force. Many cultures in the world are seeking to break free of their own outworn molds. We rarely hear such news but there are members of the Arab freedom movement who are pressing for change through the power of song. How cool would that be if we all just sang our way into a state of harmony, literally?

Uranus’s last transit through Aries occurred 84 years ago, from October 1927 to March 1935. During that time there were, as always with major transits, a combination of great revelations, revolutions, crash-and-burns, and transformations. The economy suffered in many countries, which may have been a partial trigger for World War II. Adolf Hitler declared himself the fuhrer of Germany after becoming President and Chancellor August 2nd 1934. Thousands died in China of an 8.6 earthquake. One of my favorite events during this time worth mentioning was that Amelia Earhart became the first woman pilot to fly solo, and to receive recognition for flying across the Atlantic Ocean.

Here we are, at the brink of yet even more dramatic change – what life seems all about. People with their Sun or other planets in Aries may be particularly sensitive to what this transit brings into their lives, yet the Collective will continue to be affected by this shift. There is much to prepare and be ready for, much to look forward to, and much to surrender. I prefer to see this as a surrendering to the Divine Will, versus the will of the small ego. The power of Will in general has much to do with Uranus in Aries. People who live somewhat unconsciously will be acting more willfully than ever, whether or not this serves them. It is extra important to pay attention to where our individual wills are pointing us. When in doubt, one may ask “Does my will (in any given situation) serve the highest and most harmonious outcome of all?”

The coming Spring Equinox on March 20th will begin not only with the Sun’s usual entry into Aries but an unusual conjunction with Uranus, and all of the wild forces that this unpredictable planet represents. This follows the perigee Full Moon on the 19th, which will be the biggest and closest to the Earth since 1992. This is Uranus’s first Sun conjunction at the Equinox in 335 years. Soon after on April 1st, Mars brushes up against Uranus stirring up heated situations, while a Retrograde Mercury in the same sign causes us to reflect on what we just did over the past few weeks and whether or not we want to continue doing the same things over and over or figure out new strategies.

During the next seven years we are likely to see advancements in technology that appear more futuristic and Sci-Fi than we’ve ever experienced. The dark side of Uranus in Aries might manifest as machinery, weaponry, and spyware that is far more fatal and/or invasive than humans have experienced. The brilliance of Uranus brings us ingenious new solutions to very old problems.

In terms of natural disasters, we will see more of those that are related to the fire element, such as solar flares, volcanoes, and electrical storms (this vs disasters related to the water element associated with Pisces). Earthquakes could happen as a result of the erratic flow of energy and the chaos that our Earth is merely reflecting back to us.

All in all, this is a time to go for it, do it now – taking action is sometimes better than making mistakes, particularly when inaction will mean death or disablement. Whether we need to take more initiative in our health, our careers, our relationships or our world, Uranus in Aries is here to pull our heads out of the clouds and give us that big push in the behind to make things happen.

Mercury Retro Recreation, Arts, & Crafts

Things become much more manageable and also fun when things are lumped into piles that can be addressed one at a time, although Mercury, or Murphy’s Law does not always seem to allow such organization to take place. Some of us do this automatically without question. Instinct or intuition guides us to take actions that simplify our life and increase productivity. Some of us need a little push or a nudge to become more resourceful and efficient.  A few need a disaster to shake them out of a rut. Some just don’t have a clue as to where to begin.

photo-1460661419201-fd4cecdf8a8b

Here are a few suggested piles to play with:

Clear-up Pile – What kind of piles can you gather up to get rid of – as in throw away, destroy, burn, bury, delete, zap, discontinue? You can make one giant Clear-up Pile or several ones under different categories. Any junk accumulating in the kitchen, closet, or basement? Soda cans on the beach? Trash on the widewalk? Papers, papers, and more papers? Excess email? When you do this kind of thing voluntarily instead of wait for a necessity or disaster to force you into it, it can actually be enjoyable. I like to put on a favorite album and clear away to my heart’s content! When things get really deep and disconcerting, Tangerine Dream helps me get through the cinematic horrors of my clutter.

Donate Pile – It’s true that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Sometimes the garbage we keep could benefit someone else. There is something in your life right now – out of sight, out of mind, but its space is definitely being rented in your energetic field. You don’t love it. You don’t use it. You don’t wear it. For God’s sake you don’t even look at it. Why on Earth do you hold onto it? An ugly watch that a relative gave you on Christmas? An unwanted pair of jeans with rhinestones on the back pockets? An old pot or pan way in the back corner of a cabinet that hasn’t seen light in about 7 years? Might be time to grab a cardboard box and start creating your Donate Pile.

Fix-it Pile – This pile is one of my favorites. Another name for it could be “When-I-get-to-it-Pile”. It is the pile of things that may be collected throughout the year until there is enough time to address the items contained in it. See, we don’t have to wait for a bunch of things to break down on us all at once to think in terms of adjustment. There could be a favorite barrette that broke, a blade that needs sharpening, a guitar bridge that needs repair, you get the idea. The things in this pile are not in need of urgent attention but they are useful and worth taking the time and effort to fix or get fixed. So, if you have your Fix-it pile together, take your pick get down to it.

Exchange Pile – This is another fun pile, because you have a choice in whether to donate the stuff inside to a charity or or meet up with someone that has things they are also willing to part with you might find useful. In Sonoma county, many women I know love to throw what’s called a “Clothing Exchange Party”. Women bring clothes and other odds & ends they don’t wear or use anymore and just have a field day picking and choosing from a giant pile or exchanging items in mini piles. The party atmosphere may be enhanced with snacks, music, and special beverages.

Scrap Pile – Scraps can come from fabric used in sewing, construction papers used in crafts, old crayons, cracked garden pots, wrapping paper from gifts received, random ornaments, acorns, copper wires, bones, little whatnots and thingamajigs. Instead of throwing away ribbons and other pretty accents you can save them for future arts and crafts. I mean, don’t go overboard with this and turn an entire room into a scrap pile (unless your profession is directly related to turning scraps into art). One box is sufficient. It can be whatever size box you choose. There is a great sense of satisfaction that comes with turning scraps into art.

Just as the physical body needs circulation to function properly, so does the environment that we inhabit. You might come up with your own kind of piles that work better for you. The point is to make way for creative inspiration to flow with ease.

September Superfoods & Supplements

There are many foods, minerals and supplements that people may find very helpful this month to unwind and replenish during the transit of Mercury Retrograde in Virgo and the intense activity of the eclipses.

The sign of Virgo relates to physical health, diet, exercise, hygiene, organization and work. It rules the large intestines and nerves. Challenges to planets in Virgo can cause a wide range of physical symptoms from indigestion to insomnia, nervous exhaustion, and toxic overload.

What is the #1 mineral for Virgo’s physical (and a few mental/emotional) issues? I’ll tell you in a minute…

This has been one of the most underlooked minerals in the past, but it is now being recognized as crucial to the assimilation of other key vitamins and minerals such as Calcium and Vitamin D. Most Americans are extremely deficient in it, and as a result they suffer from stiff muscles, headaches, stress tension, irritability, anxiety, mood swings, irregularity, and restlessness.

That magical mineral that we need more of is Magnesium!

There are far too many symptoms and conditions for me to list here related to a deficiency in magnesium but they include diabetes, intestinal complaints such as Crohn’s disease and leaky gut, kidney malfunctions, menstrual cramps, heart attacks and even cancer.

Magnesium has been shown to help with detoxification, elimination of heavy metals, regulation of blood sugar levels, and general calmness. There is a popular supplement on health food shelves that is actually called Calm Magnesium, which can be especially helpful before retiring for the evening. Not all magnesium supplements are created equal. Magnesium with citric acid called Magnesium Citrate can cause “the runs”. Magnesium Oxide is not readily absorbed. Magnesium Glycinate is chelated and can provide greater bioavailability and absorption than the others.

(Don’t take my word for any of it – plenty of research data is available on the internet! Consult your health expert for advice)

Magnesium Changes Lives

Magnesium is meant to be an abundant mineral in the human body. Like water itself, when insufficient a huge list of ailments can manifest leading to degeneration. There was a time in my life when my anxiety was so incapacitating that each day was spent in agonizing misery and anxiety that felt like I was going to suffocate from lack of oxygen and heart palpitations any minute. This discomfort continued for hours, sometimes days and weeks.

When I began taking a magnesium supplement I was amazed at what began to occur in my body. It was not a cure-all but it definitely shifted my perspective, my heart rate, my breathing, my posture, and my ability to function. I’d say that it did quite a bit to improve my condition!

Sources of Magic Minerals

SuperFoods containing magnesium, also rich in many other minerals and nutrients – ORGANIC ALL: Almonds, Basil, Broccoli, Burdock Root, Raw Cacao, Chlorella, Sage, Seaweed, Sesame Seeds, Spinach, Spirulina, Sunflower Seeds. A lot of Green in the diet!

photo-1472141341085-dab5ea0df9a2

Another supplement that I highly recommend for those who have been stressed to the max lately is B12.

A lack of it often coincides with anemia, fatigue, dementia, lack of appetite/emaciation, depression, general weakness and malaise.

This special vitamin is absolutely required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological functioning, optimal energy levels and overall wellbeing. It is also easy to lose quickly in states of high stress and panic, and in aging. B-12 is said to aid in the body’s ability to make DNA for new cells. It is one of eight B vitamins that help the body convert food into glucose which is how we get our energy. Many people are low in several Bs so they might as well take a B-Complex.

Foods containing B12 aside from various types of meat include: Eggs, Nutritional Yeast, Yogurt, and grains that have been fortified with B12.

As a supplement B12 can be taken as a pill, sublingual drops/tablet, or injection for those who like needles 🙂

Solar Eclipse in Virgo 2016

An annular solar eclipse at 9 degrees of Virgo on September 1st will be visible from Madagascar and certain areas of Central Africa. The effects of this eclipse have been building up for several days, bringing explosive action, fierce opposition, and holy hell in our spheres of existence. The “ring of fire” formed the glowing rays of the Sun outlined behind the Moon could symbolize this.

For some this New Moon Eclipse heralds the release of struggle, the breaking of chains, and the onset of inspiration. Much of what is being processed now is a recap of what came up last year 0f 2015 around September 13th with the Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees of Virgo. Close where I live in Northern California, a huge fire took down almost an entire valley, and with it a spot called Harbin Hot Springs that was beloved by many. It was a time of endings, disappointment and loss on a grand scale and it was only the beginning of more of what was to come in the months to follow.

I see the huge emphasis in Virgo as a call to becoming more intimately aligned with Gaia – to make amends with Her, to assess the ways that we can become more prudent with regard to our resources. This world that we live in is as filled with awesome beauty as it is with terror and decay. How often do we immerse ourselves in the beauty? How often do we give thanks for the bounty “at our disposal”?

An eclipse or transit is never “all good” or “all bad” but a mixture of things, pushing different buttons for each of us each time. The transits we have experienced recently and are currently experiencing could very well lead to breakthroughs in consciousness that significantly change the course of our lives.

Those who shun the shadow side of life should read no further.

This eclipse on September 1st highly activates the Saturn/Neptune square that has been in effect since November of 2015. This confounding cosmic arrangement will pack its last punches with us throughout September. Many of the illusions that we have long held dear are dissolving before our eyes and sliding like sand through our fingers.

The North Node conjunct the Solar Eclipse is showing us where we may have wrongly given of our time, energy, and resources in the past. It is pulling our head out of the clouds and into the stark Now. It is helping us to redefine our goals and aspirations and encouraging practical plans of action toward attaining them. One major lesson many have been learning since November 12th of 2015 and will hopefully complete by May 9, 2017 is how to overcome the tendency to rationalize outer conditions and toxic situations at the expense of personal sanity and integrity. Between Chiron and Neptune the South Node in Pisces has revealed many of the causes of our own self-doing. Various forms of self-sacrifice and sabotage have proven futile at relieving the suffering of others, let alone the self who is being sacrificed.

Intense pain – psychic pain, physical pain, soul pain has been a highlight for so many this past year. When the pain is too great to endure, escapism becomes the coping mechanism. On the other hand, an extreme sensitivity to the disappointment, pain and suffering of others, both on minor and major scales can become distracting to one’s own progress, and we now see more clearly the ways that we have been distracted. With this illumination we can adjust our responses and create positive change.

To those for whom it applies: Whose bottomless pit of need have we sought to fill? In what way have we become exhausted because of a deep care, sympathy or pity for the states of others – shocked to find out where our very sympathy is the thing most undeserved? This is how psychic vampires even thrive; they must be fed by those who pity them enough to give of their own life force energy. Since the North Node’s transit of Virgo began I discovered the hard way that I had been trying to cater to the crying egos of others for quite some time rather than truly helping them to serve their higher purpose. It was extremely depressing to say the least. It was also liberating.

Meanwhile, Mercury is stationed Retrograde at 28 degrees of Virgo in exact conjunction with Jupiter who is getting ready to shift gears into Libra on the 9th. The danger with this combination is that words and their meanings may seem bigger than life to some and can be misconstrued in many ways. Judgment could seem more severe than is merited. Bickering and nitpicking could lead to all out brawls or become quietly resolved for those making every effort to choose the higher route.

Two big questions that arise with Jupiter in the late degrees of Virgo are:  What have we taught those who we have chosen to teach us? What have we learned by teaching others? Here on Earth, the teaching and learning goes both ways between teacher and student but usually not in any predictable fashion. In another philosophical sense everyone is a teacher to us if we are but willing to learn from our interactions with them.

The Solar Eclipse forms a trine to Pluto that could be the boost we have been needing to move on to the next level in some way. If a change of career, residence, relationship, or occupation has been long considered the road moving forward will soon appear. When it comes to eclipses (we have one more to go this year on the 16th) we can seldom be sure what direction things will take but we can expect that what is stuck will become unstuck!

The asteroid Aphrodite makes a conjunction to the Solar Eclipse which could indicate some surprises in store regarding love and/or romance. Earthy forms of healing and somatic therapy are favored now, such as massage, herbal medicine, and acupuncture. It would probably be wise to take it easy on ourselves and others and not push too hard for results the rest of this week.

3 Flower Essences for Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

Every time Mercury appears to be moving in reverse there are many aspects of life that seem to be also. There is often this random stream of chaos: a dish cracks, a computer crashes, a tire goes flat, someone thought you said dumbass when you said alas, a new pair of pants don’t fit, and so on and on. It’s time to slow down – just a wee bit – and do a little bit of review.

The house that Mercury is transiting in your own birth chart and any planets being “aspected” will say more about how Mercury Retrograde is affecting you specifically.

With Mercury Retrograde in Virgo from August 30th until September 21st there is a focus on improving aspects of what we have already been building upon, healing, or manifesting. It is also of great assistance in releasing old items, beliefs, or toxins.

Buried emotions might rise to the surface causing depression or a flood of thoughts and worries could make it difficult to fall asleep at night. Here are three Bach Flower Essences that might be particularly helpful during the next few weeks while Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo.

Crab Apple

This is the flower to help quell an obsessive concern for imperfections and impurities. Nitpicking and excessive criticism so often experienced when Virgo is stressed in some way can be eased with this essence. The desire to be perfect or do a perfect job at something can erode one’s confidence in the long run. When one feels they are not good enough, or they are embarrassed because of a blemish, or experiencing germophobia, Crab Apple helps gain a healthier perspective and fosters self-acceptance. Psychosomatic illness and certain allergies often develop in those who loathe their bodies or appearance in some way. Crab Apple is a great essence for those who feel that the physical body is unclean no matter how much they bathe. This includes a religious shame of sexuality. This flower essence can energetically enhance many types of detoxification programs and diets, including fasting. When there are serious questions about what is pure, moral and “good”, Crab Apple can facilitate clarity.

Pine

The essence of Pine is indicated for use when there is an inability to forgive oneself or to accept one’s human nature. Although regret may sometimes be useful to a certain degree it can easily become so exaggerated than one feels a lack of motivation to better themselves or even get out of bed in the morning. It can turn into self-deprecation, which does not help anyone. We all make mistakes! That’s part of life on the Earth plane. Pine addresses the kind of shame that makes it very difficult to make any progress. If such shame is an ongoing or crippling issue for someone it may work very well together with Crab Apple to restore ones sense of self worth and original innocence. Pine is a tree that represents both purity and equanimity. Its appearance, fragrance and energetic imprint can help us to become more objective about our shortcomings and to understand how we may better ourselves with a compassionate awareness instead of judgment and the burden of guilt.

White Chestnut

White Chestnut is the flower essence for the mind that never quits. It just gets more lit the later it gets at night. There are as many reasons for mental agitation as there are personalities. Most will agree that having an overactive mind is unpleasant and exhausting. One could be concerned with the completion of a project that requires a lot of mental energy, thus making it difficult to wind down at the end of a very stimulating day. Another person could fear losing their job, health or relationship which causes them to feel that they are constantly living on the edge with their minds replaying various scenarios of the worst that could happen. The events of the day, week, or month could be repeatedly analyzed and lead to extreme headaches and insomnia. This type of nervous energy can also wreak havoc on the digestive system and immunity. White Chestnut helps to reroute congested mental energy from the higher chakras to the rest of the body or areas where it might be needed. When there is more clarity and calmness within the mind, the voice of the Inner Self can more easily be heard and heeded.
