It's so amazing to read your feedback. And I look forward to hearing from more of you over the next week. Okay, Mychal? So let's start with the overarching theme for the week when you're looking at the energy, what would you say is the theme that we can kind of anchor around.
Mychal Bryan 2:33
Among the main theme that's coming up this week is the sense of us honoring our personal contracts. And the one on the one hand, we think about contracts as being agreements that we make with other people. But I think that it's also indicative of the agreements that we made to ourselves. And when I think about this theme of honoring our personal contracts, I'm reminded that there's even deeper contracts within ourselves those contracts of destiny, those contracts of fate, that maybe some of us are still trying to figure out what exactly those contracts are that we made the universe before coming into this physical life. And I think that it's important for us to not just honor those contracts. But for those of us who are still uncertain as to what those contracts are on a deeper, more spiritual level, for us to spend this time this week to kind of figure out exactly what it is we're meant to be doing right now, so that we can live in harmony with those contracts as well.
Amanda Pua Walsh 3:34
Mychal, I've found that asking the right questions can sometimes unlock those kinds of big answers that we're seeking. So if we were to walk with certain questions this week, anybody who isn't sure about their destiny, and what they're here to do? What questions would you suggest that we quote unquote, walk with?
Mychal Bryan 3:56
You know, Amanda, as a part of my divination practice, where I practice the Kabbalistic, tarot as well, and one of my daily questions that I hold within myself for the universe, is, what guidance do you have for me right now? And that question, it's, it's large, and it's open ended, but it allows for so many of the blanks to be filled in, you know, when we walk through life with this understanding, or with this question of saying, Hey, I am here, I'm ready. I'm open. And I don't know what I don't know. But I want to know, so what guidance do you have for me right now, in terms of me living in the highest amount of harmony with who I meant to be? And I think when we focus on that question, and then when we allow the question to be a central factor in how we move through the world, then the world around us starts to give us the answers that we're looking for, to assist us in living in greater harmony with our own truth that we're meant to manifest within this lifetime.
Amanda Pua Walsh 4:59
love that so much. Very, very powerful. Alright, so why are you saying that's like why is this the particular focus of this particular week?
Mychal Bryan 5:09
You know, this week we have a lot going on. And even previously, when we take a look at the New Moon to this month of March, we see that there was the New Moon in Pisces, which was followed by the Full Moon, the Full Moon, with the Moon in Virgo. And so we have this moment when we have lunation in Pisces, to really take a step back, and dream a new dream. And that's kind of the theme that I've been sharing with people a lot recently, this thought that we have been given the opportunity this month, to dream a new dream about how we see ourselves in the world, how we want to be seen in the world, and what is meaningful and true to us in the process of expressing ourselves in the world in that way. And at the same time that we had a New Moon in Pisces, we also had a conjunction of mercury and Saturn, and mercury and Saturn at the beginning of this lunation release that have this concept of honoring the power within our words, honoring the power within what we say and how we say it and who we say it to and to make sure that were meaningful with the verbal contracts that were committing ourselves to our the verbal agreements that we find ourselves making. The last thing I'll say about this, this mercury Saturn conjunction is it really challenges all of us to pay attention to how we are expressing or communicating about what's most true for us within the world at large. And I was sharing recently that there is a part of how we do that is by making sure that the people around us know what our name is, or know what our names are. Because the name the process of naming something or the process of having a name within ourselves. It's a really big deal in terms of us starting to feel as if we're living in harmony with our truth, because your truth is also part of your name. You know, your name is Amanda. My name is Mychal. And making sure that people know how to say that name, and that they're not mixing it up with something else is symbolic of making sure that we're sharing our truth with people in all regards. So that people when they interact with us are absolutely certain about who it is they're interacting with, so that they don't confuse what they can bring to us or survive. They don't confuse how they can treat us because we are so deeply established in the truth of our name, both our actual human name but also our energetic name. What is the name that you want people to call you? When you step into a space energetically? How do you exude that from yourself? How do you demand that from your environment? This honoring the truth of our names is really a big part of honoring our personal contracts, because the first contract that we have to honor is how we want ourselves to be seen and interacted with as we move through the world.
Amanda Pua Walsh 8:06
Wow, Mychal, there's so much there in that idea around the name. And that being one of our initial contracts really with ourselves, right. And, you know, I live in Hawaii. And I've had the honor of studying with several different Hawaiian Kahunas. And they've one of the one of the ones that I studied with talked about the naming process, and how important it has been to the Hawaiian culture, and that they believe that you actually choose your name. I didn't grow up with that idea at all. And so learning about this was very powerful, because I never actually felt connected to my name growing up, it never was something that I felt a real deep resonance with. And so in this process of working with this amazing woman, I had the opportunity to unpack what my name actually meant. And they believe that your your name, your middle name, and your first name, within it is encoded your destiny, whether or not your parents had some naming ceremony, or they had some big download. It all has happened, whether or not anybody was aware of it. What do you say to people who really just don't feel connected to their name at all?
Mychal Bryan 9:18
No, it's interesting that you're sharing this story with me, Amanda, because I also growing up didn't really feel like connected to my own name. And I went through stages within my youth of changing my name several times. So when I when I discovered how to pronounce the word amethyst, I was like, Oh my God, I want to change my name. And then after that, when I was reading and rice, who is the author of beat the whole vampire series, and she wrote the book, The Interview with the Vampire and the queen of the dams and all of that, one of the main figures within the book, her name was Maharat. And I was like, Oh my God, that's so amazing. I'm going to change my name to it. Amethyst Maharat. And so I, I went through all of these different things and, and, and some I look back on some of that and it's comical to me that but then I look at other ways in which I've named and renamed myself on a spiritual level that really resonates with me as well.
Mychal Bryan 10:19
But you know, one of my first entry points into spiritual practice was numerology. And within the context of numerology, every thing that has a name also has an an energetic frequency or an essence that can be expressed in numerical form. One of the things that we find in the Kabbalah is this concept that the Lord that Elohim enumerated the world into existence that God used numbers and letters and sounds, to essentially create this universe. So Pythagoras, one of the founders of mathematics, says that nature, geometry arises that everything in nature goes back to a central and fundamental geometry that can be expressed numerically before it can be expressed in form. So the tree that's in my backyard has a numerical coding that can be expressed with mathematics, it can be expressed in that code, but it can also be expressed as that tree. And the reason why I'm bringing all of this up, is because from a neurological perspective, every name or or the name that we were given when we were born, is just as potent as the chart that we were given when we were born from an astrological perspective. So even if your name is Sebastian, the whale watching dolphin, then that named passion, the whale watching dolphin is going to hold within itself, the essence of who you are, and the destiny that you're meant to fulfill within this lifetime. So I know that there are many people who to grapple with this whole thing of their name and, and what their name means, or the fact that their name doesn't mean anything, the fact that they were just named after a bottle of soda, or I have a friend who was named out was named after a state. And then that same friend, there, her father named all of their children, after several states in America, so one is Nevada, and one is Michigan, and, and so and so. It's a whole situation. But the point is, the point is that if we trust that we were purposefully placed in this lifetime, we can also trust that the name that we've come into this world with, however much we love that name, however much we despise them. However much we think that that name doesn't have any value. If you know how to study the meaning of that name, you'll find that that name, more than likely has the ability within itself to really express who you are, at the end of the day. And at the end of the day, no matter how far we try to change things on the outside, who we are still follows us everywhere. And very often that contents that we find following us everywhere is the content that we hold in our name, and also the content that we hold within our astrology which is why I think those two subjects both numerology and astrology are so important, because numerology really made me realize that as much as I hated my own name, that my name was beautiful, because it holds within itself, the coding of who I am, or what my destiny is within this lifetime.
Amanda Pua Walsh 13:25
Wow, beautiful. Okay, let's so we're talking about contracts honoring personal contracts. First and foremost, the contract you have with yourself, you're talking about being very mindful of the verbal contracts that we make with our words. And then you're bringing us to the importance of our name and having a personal connection with that name as a coating for our destiny, but also making sure that other people speak our name in the way that we can receive it that it's meant to be spoken, as well. And this is all having to do with mercury and Saturn. Right.
Mychal Bryan 14:09
So that was at the New Moon. But as we move into this coming week, we have on the 21st, we have the Mercury conjunct with Jupiter. And the mercury Jupiter combination is a combination for the speaker. It's a combination for the communicator. And one of the things that I think could be very special for people to do at this time on March 21, is to really commit themselves to what are the sorts of messages we want to be sad about ourselves in the world? What are the sort of ways we want to communicate about ourselves in the world? How do we want people to receive that communication? How do we want to be known? I think the mercury Jupiter has the ability to inspire us in that sort of way. And it's on March 21, which also coincides with the vernal equinox when the sun grasses or turns into Aries. And so I think that with this happening also around the time of the astrological new year, that this is really the time of us setting our New Year's resolution. And very often that concept of setting a new year's resolution has to do with how we want for people to receive who we are within the coming year. And so within this coming year, I think you know, the mercury Saturn conjunction at the beginning of the month, really primed us for this mercury Jupiter conjunction now we find coming that we find coming on March 21. Because Mercury Jupiter the entire purpose of Jupiter from a from a metaphysical perspective, is to help us to find a sense of expansion within the Saturnian world that we find ourselves living in. So all of us are in the physical body on the physical planet, and all of that stuff. And that corresponds with the Saturn thing, so we cannot change. But within that petri dish of our physical experience, that Jupiterian principle allows us to expand and to grow and to become wise, even though we can't fully jump out of the petri dish into something completely new. We can still live expansively we can still live gloriously, we can still live with a deeper philosophical meaning to our lives so that our lives don't just become a realm of material consciousness, but our lives also has the ability to elevate ourselves. So on March 21, the question that you should be asking yourself is what truly elevates me? What are the things on the philosophical level that gives my concrete material mundane life, a greater sense of perspective and depth, as well as a touchstone to spirit, because those things are things that we should really be doing, or those things are things we should really be doing on the 21st of March, in order for us to move into the rest of the month, and ultimately, the rest of the year with a greater sense of who we are?
Amanda Pua Walsh 16:57
Mychal, when you're talking about setting new year's resolutions, because it's the astrological new year, and having this question of how do you want people to receive you? How do you rectify the truth that you actually can't control how people receive you, that how they receive you is, is more their choice, and, and you can control who you are and how you're being?
Mychal Bryan 17:26
You know, I think that that's a great question, Amanda. And I also think that our own truth to our own energy and our own truth to our name, I once again, Harris's word name, but it isn't just like I said, it's not just a matter of your first name, it's a matter of all the ways in which you want to be identified and seen and known within the world. I think that our relationship to that is something that we really have to solidify within our lives as a thing of utmost importance. Because once we solidify who we are, and what we stand for, and where we stand within the world, there is no force, save for the sheer power of the Divine itself, that should be able to shake us from that. And I think that that resolution in ourselves that resolution and what we believe in, why we believe in it, and why we're willing to lay our lives on that mountaintop. I think that that resolution is of utmost importance, even as we interact with people who don't have the perspective, who don't have the depth of clarity, and who cannot see the world as we see it, or who cannot see us as we see ourselves. When we begin to measure our lives by that depth of clarity and perspective. And that conscious awareness of who we are, that we find the circle around this changing, we find the people around this changing because things of when people hold us in a lesser light than the light that we hold ourselves in the light that we hold ourselves and completely consumes that lesser light around us. And when people can't handle to be in that radiance, or in that fulgent or in that flame, they move away, we find people who have the ability to reflect back to us our true nature coming into our lives. So I don't think that we really have to worry about the fact that people hold us and viewers from the perspective of their own ability to see based on their own filters in life. Because when we don't match up with those people, the integrity that we hold within ourselves, prevents us from staying in those spaces, either because we consciously say to them, I cannot be in this space anymore, or because our presence within the world says to them, I cannot be in the space anymore, and therefore either you're leaving or I'm leaving, but my energy cannot fit within the dim light that you're trying to view And I need to be in other spaces. And so either they leave or you will leave. But I think that our energy oftentimes creates a place for us in the world, far more than our words or even our actions. Does.
Amanda Pua Walsh 20:14
I am that was the mic drop right there, Mychal. Okay. We've talked about Monday. I mean, we've talked about the whole week. And then we've, we've dived into Monday, are there any other days this week that that the astrology is significant enough for us to be paying attention as we go throughout the week?
Mychal Bryan 20:33
Well, as we move into the 22nd of March, we have the Mars square, Uranus, and Mars square, Uranus is a really interesting combination, it's a really volatile combination. And the message there is to not be volatile, with your use of energy. On that day, a big part of knowing what our name is, is also knowing what the personal limitations of our power is, you know, not everybody is meant to be a great airplane pilot. And it's worthwhile for those of us who are in demands to be great airplane pilots to know that about ourselves, and to allow ourselves to exist within the scope of what is real for us, based on the limitations of our own karma and dharma, what is it that actually resonates with you are with us rather, and this life that we now live, and what is it that isn't in harmony with us, and this life that we now find ourselves living in, because at the end of the day, not everyone is supposed to do everything. And I think that the Mars Uranus combination is a combination that gives us a sense of a gung ho spirit that makes us feel as if we can plow down, we can plow down every mountain, and we can scale every height, and we can do all of the things. But we should also really be mindful to check our energy on this day on the 22nd of March, and to make sure that we aren't holding ourselves in the world from a place of immature volatility. Because Mars Uranus can also lead to that, which means it can be a day where warfare springs up in a greater way. Or it can be a day, where more accidents are prone, because there's a need for speed, when in fact, the message within that Mars Uranus is to slow down, really be settled within yourself, really realize that not every battle is yours to fight, not every mountain is yours to scale, and to really be willing to sit with yourself in a way that allows you to possibly pay attention to things that you haven't been paying attention to before. Because oftentimes, we speed through life as a means of not paying attention to the pink elephant in the room, when in fact, if we slow down, we realize that, hey, there are some parts of myself that have been left unattended to, and there are some parts of me that I still can't see. And those parts of me are wreaking havoc in the background. So I feel like I should be speeding through life right now. Because the superficial version of me says go faster, go faster, go faster. But the more profound internal version is saying, hey, the reason why you feel like speeding so much is because you're not paying attention to the painful content within your past or you're not paying attention to the pink elephant in the room that actually needs for you to slow down, isolate yourself for a day and really think. And so I think that Tuesday is a day for thinking but it's a day for thinking in a deeper and penetrative way that doesn't really allow us to give ourselves a break. You know, like really do the soul searching work on Tuesday, instead of flying too far or too fast.
Mychal Bryan 23:45
On the 23rd of March, we have the Mercury conjunct Neptune and Mercury conjunct Neptune is a great combination for just seeing how we're placing ourselves in terms of once again, our words, it's all about our words. Really. Mercury conjunct Neptune has to do with allowing our minds to be a vehicle for dreaming and fantasy as well as for us to start to tap into what looks like something that can fulfill our desires of ourselves. Assuming that you've spent the last two days doing the sort of deep internal inventory inventory needed to not only be willing to state your name and redefine what that name represents for you, but also on the to say being willing to look within the shadows of yourself to see okay, are there things that I'm not looking at or things that I'm not paying attention to that actually need my attention, even if they suck and even if they hurt? Then we have on the Wednesday us moving into this period with the Mercury conjunct Neptune, which says now that you've done that stuff, what can you reimagine for yourself? What can you bring to life through the sheer force of your imagination? And how does your imagination become a reprieve from you living In the sort of narrow, Saturnian frameworks that you may have been living in before, so the Mercury conjunct Neptune is a wonderful day for the dreamer, it's a wonderful day for the poet is the wonderful day for the person who needs something to make them feel as if they have access to a more courageous part of themselves, in the same way that our imagination can oftentimes paint us in a more courageous life. And we actually feel Wednesday's and appropriately for you to do that. To imagine yourself more courageously imagine yourself living a life without limitation. Imagine yourself releasing, if I had no fears. If none of these things have previously held me back from a fair place within my life, or actually existence in my life, who would I be? What would I be able to accomplish in a life lived without fears? And Wednesday really brings that in with our Mercury, Neptune combination,
Amanda Pua Walsh 25:53
Mychal, one of the things that you've talked about, or you brought up in the beginning, and I'm hearing it again, echoed, is this dream, a new dream theme? That that you're saying is, has been present this whole lunar cycle? And sounds like Wednesday, we have an opportunity to really tune into that. Would you? Have you noticed? Or would you say that it is natural, that we have been noticing the dream, someone else's dream that we find ourselves caught in or seemingly caught in? So there's things happening in the world, things happening in people's lives that don't match whatever that internal dream is, at all? Like maybe the antithesis of it? And do you think that sometimes those things come to our awareness, so that we can be aware A, that we're allowing ourselves to be swept up in that dream, and be to really differentiate what it is that we're wanting to bring, and get really clear on that on why we want to bring it?
Mychal Bryan 27:00
Definitely Amanda. And I think that this goes back to I think Abraham Hicks says something about this, where they say that the more we can identify the things within our lives that aren't working, the more we have the ability to see the things that do work, or the more we find the deeper we find ourselves going into a negative situation, the more the path away from that situation becomes clearer. So if you find yourself in a relationship with someone who is completely disrespectful to you, then their disrespect highlights the polar opposite of that disrespect, which is respect. So therefore, through being in a negative situation, you find yourself also beginning to itemize the things that represent the good if I'm with a disrespectful person that I need the person who gives me respect. If I'm with a person who is unfaithful to me, I need a person who will be loyal. If I'm with a person who calls me I believe that I need to be the person who will call me beautiful. And so the more we find ourselves going through dire straits, in terms of the things in our life that don't work. If we only turned our gaze in the opposite direction, the more we'll find that list of the things that we truly desire being illuminated there for us to move towards. And to your point about getting swept up and other people's stuff. I think we get swept up in how other people prioritize themselves. And then we lose sight of the fact that we are our own priority. Or we lose sight that we are indeed the Sun within the center of our own lives. And then we go back and forth between feeling as if okay, if I let this person down, that I'm a bad person, or maybe they're going to think that I'm being selfish, or maybe they're going to feel as if I am being a heartless, whatever. But on the other hand, if I don't let them down, and I find myself repeating this cycle of negative enmeshment, or negative entanglement, that doesn't really allow me to feel as if I'm a sovereign being within my life, who can break free of the shackles of the things that don't work, simply because I have such a deep attachment to this negative person or to these negative circumstances. So that becomes the polarized thing that we find ourselves between one do I be selfish, and do something that is divinely inherently for me? And for no one else? Or two? Do I stay stuck in the painful pattern, where I find myself repeating the same old mistakes again and again, unable to liberate myself from them? And I think the answer between that is very clear. You know, we're all trying to survive within the world and a big part of our survival is doing what is truthful to us and doing what really speaks to our heart and doing what allows us to have a sense of, of a life of expansion within the The world. And if that means being selfish to someone else, for the pure purpose of your own continuity, and for the purpose of your own expansive life, then sometimes that's the thing we have to do. Because if we're living in harmony with our truth, and if that person is living in harmony with their truth, then nothing that we do for ourselves should register to somebody else as an act of selfishness, because their own truth isn't dependent anymore on our ability to show up for them or on our ability to continue to stay stuck in a negative perception of ourselves that doesn't actually serve our highest version of what's truthful to us. So on Thursday, so I'm so caveat, I'm a uranium astrologer, as well as being a traditional astrologer, which means I usually look to the sky for the hard aspects. And a big part of that within Uranian astrology is because the hard aspects are the things actually make things happen in the grander scheme of things, hard aspects or aspects of material manifestation.
Mychal Bryan 31:06
So there is a is really going to be a continuation of that mercury, Neptune energy that we find ourselves going through on the 23rd, which would have been the Wednesday. And what I think that that actually allows us to do is it just further allows us to get clear on one, what's the thing that I want to do for me, what's the dream, but I want to dream from my life. And because Neptune, Evangelion Adams in in her book,
Mychal Bryan 31:40
astrology, your place amongst the stars, says that Neptune does mean fantasy, and delusion and dreaminess, and all of that stuff. But more often than not, Neptune is also a combination, or Neptune is also a planet that has to do with disillusionment, and disappointment, as well. And so I think that with this mercury, Neptune combination, on the one hand, yes, we are dreaming a new way of identifying ourselves, we are dreaming about how to fulfill our desires within the world in terms of our interactions with others, as well as our interactions with our work and our family and the things we're doing. But at the same time, the Neptune with the mercury is showing us some of the areas where we find disappointment, and then saying, you know, are you actually truly happy with the tools that you have within the environment that you're in, in order for you to do the work that you're meant to be doing? Do the tools that you have? Does the placement that you found yourself in within this moment? Do they actually help you do your great work? Or do you find yourself with inefficient tools? Do you find yourself around inefficient company? Do you find yourself in a space that is fundamentally lacking in such a way where as it has to, it drives you to, to put yourself in an environment that can actually support you, as you begin to build your new vision, your big vision within the world? So that Thursday is just a continuation of saying, hey, now that you spend the day on the Wednesday figuring out what it means to be a fearless version of you, on the Thursday, ask yourself fearlessly? Do I have the tools and the equipment within the environment that I'm in in order to actually bring this vision to life? Or do I need to pull back? Or do I need to replace myself or relocate myself so that I can actually do the work that has been planted within my heart to do right now, because if you don't have the tools, that means that no matter how much you dream, within that same environment within those same relationships, you will never actually feel a true sense of satisfaction, because you will still be trying to make a sandcastle in an environment where no sound exists.
Amanda Pua Walsh 33:57
Sounds like a little bit of a reality check. Yeah. Okay, here's the big vision. What do I actually need to bring this forward? What tangible things do I need around me? Yeah. Okay, let's go to Friday, then.
Mychal Bryan 34:10
So once again, from the hard aspects side of things, Friday is still low on the uptake. But as we move into, so when I say Friday's low on the uptake, I mean, that Friday really sets up another day for us to further hash out these themes. So not that Friday is completely uneventful, but Friday is holding on to that energy of the mercury Neptune that we found earlier. And now after you've decided that, hey, the tools that I have actually aren't available to me where I am. It causes you to realize on Friday and I'm saying on Friday, as if it were a sequence, but it could be a sequence view if you like, but it causes you to realize sequentially. Am I living in a universe that's too small for me, and not necessarily the larger universe but have I allowed myself Live in the fishbowl universe, essentially, because I'm comfortable here. You know how I got uncomfortable based on the things in my life that don't work? Have I gotten comfortable with the fact that I actually need a hammer to build this house, but yet I'm surrounded by spoons, have I gotten comfortable with the fact that, you know, things aren't really what I need for them to be, but I understand them in the broken way that they are. So let me just continue to stay. Have you allowed yourself to move into a heavy dense framework of your consciousness, where it's more comfortable for you to stay within the quagmire of things that don't work. But it's less comfortable for you to actually get up and go out and do the things that you need to do. Because that getting up and going out represents a greater source of change that you're even more uncomfortable with. So I think that it's easy for us to talk to people about change on the one hand, but on a deeper level, we have to ask ourselves, you know, why do people find themselves stuck in awful situations to begin with. And very often, it's because those often situations of familiarity. And as human beings, we're all trying to establish a familiar sense of how we relate to our environment. And so even if the environment that we find ourselves in is an awful environment, the familiarity of that environment still causes us to feel as if that's a place where we need to continue to be. But Friday ushers in the question of saying, Hey, are you really come from it really comfortable within this framework that you've created for yourself, because if you're not actually comfortable, then it's very likely that you need to move on, it's very unlikely, it's very likely that you need to let go of that tiny University and build for yourself, and allow yourself to live within a much wider framework of life, so that you can start to attract to yourself some of the things that actually helps you to do your great work. And that can be a scary thing. You know, as we make these journeys away from the hot seat of our comfort, it can feel like we're going through a bit of a dark night of the soul experience. And it can feel as if we are fundamentally letting go of certainty. And it's amazing how many people will hold on to the certainty of a bad situation before actually allowing themselves to tap into the momentum of moving towards a bad situation. And so Friday, as we go into the weekend, Friday really ushers in the question of, Hey, are you actually at this moment in a situation that's holding you back. And if you are, do you have the intestinal fortitude to get up and go and face your fears in the process of leaving, but also realize that that fear facing process is also an exhilarating thing to be a part of, it's a wonderful thing, when you get up and leave your comfort zone. On the one hand, you have fear and anxiety. And on the other hand, you have exhilaration and the feeling of being alive. And all of these feelings, the fear, the anxiety, the sorrow, the anger, the exhilaration, disaster, the joy, the ecstasy, all of these emotions are a part of getting up and moving towards what we're meant to do. And so we shouldn't only expect to feel good things, as we leave our comfort zone behind, we should actually expect to feel some of the heavier emotions as well. But the fact that we're willing to stir all of those things up says we're willing to not be stuck. And our willingness to not be stuck is an extraordinary thing that allows us to create an extraordinary life for ourselves.

On Saturday, we have mercury in a semi square relationship with Uranus and I mentioning the semi square because within Cosmo biology, and while I should say Uranian astrology for us, because Cosmo biology came out of Uranian Astrology. So within the Iranian astrology, and then Cosmo biology, we find that the semi squares, these these smaller harmonic hard aspects, so the aspects of 45 degrees, so the semi square being a half of the square, and then the sesquiquadrant being three semi squares, 45 times three, these other aspects that are still a part of the heart aspect family are also very important aspects of material manifestation as well. So that's why I wanted to include the semi square that we have between Mercury and Uranus on the Saturday, because after you've allowed yourself to break apart the previously held comfort zones that you had, and allow yourself on Friday to begin to make some of the moves out of that. And I think we should preface this by just letting people know that of course, no one is expecting you to you know, change your life overnight or completely transform your life all at once. But I think that you could listen back to this recording and go slowly with this process. As for yourself, so if you choose to do the thing that we're doing on Monday, and like Monday, or the thing that we're doing today, be the thing that you do for the rest of the week, then do that if you need to extend Monday's lesson for another month and do that, because change takes time. And these things shouldn't be approached in an instant, automatic sort of way. So if you want it to take the advice for the next seven days, and to spread that over the course of seven weeks or seven months, I think that that's, that's also a healthy thing. Because what we see with this energy is something that says, if you're willing to engage with this story, as it's being told, you can choose to start the story in the way that is being told. And slowly unfold the other parts of the story as you go throughout the rest of your month and throughout the rest of your year. If that feels like a better, more steadier pace for you. So not being said, on the Saturday, we have the mercury, semi square Uranus. And that's a wonderful thing to have after going through that experience of realizing that you live in a fishbowl universe, Mercury semi square, Uranus is a feeling of having lightning fill your body. And it's a feeling of being completely alive and completely connected and completely in the knowledge of who you're meant to be and completely in the knowledge of who you actually are. And I was saying to a group the other day, that that Baal Shem Tov, which is who is one of the great rabbis or one of the great rabbinical scholars says to us that forgetfulness is exile. When you forget who you are at a deep level, you essentially exile yourself from the kingdom of heaven. And so this heaven isn't a place that we go to when we die. This Heaven is a world that we actively create at this moment. And forgetfulness is exile. And he goes on to say that remembrance is redemption. And Mercury Uranus is a combination that allows us to be completely filled with a lightening of the remembrance of who we are. There is a there's a Maureen or Marie,
Mychal Bryan 42:13
quote, or a Marie Chant that says, I am a seed that was sown from the past, and I shall never be lost. And I think that when when I think about within, in relation to myself, that fills me with a sense of remembrance, that I am a seed that was sown from the past, and I shall never be lost. It makes me know that as I move forward within my life, as I create transformation and waves of change within my life, I am allowing myself to trust more where I've come from, to trust that I'm actually built on something to trust that my life is actually built on something, and I'm allowing myself to know and remember that based on what I'm built on, I will never be lost, I will never be swept away by the tides of change, because in riding those tides of change, I'm also calling on the power of who I know myself to be at my deepest, most spiritual level. So on Saturday with the mercury semi square Uranus, give yourself the opportunity to trust the lightning that's filling you trust the insight that comes rushing into you as a result of choosing to break apart your fishbowl universe. And trust that that insight has the ability to take you onward. And wherever onward leads for you is completely within harmony with where you're meant to be at this moment in your life. Exciting, so I wasn't sure if I should do Sunday, but I did prepare for Sunday just in case.
Mychal Bryan 43:41
On Sunday, we have the sun semi square Saturn and so that's on Sunday, the 27th of March, we have the sun in the semi square with Saturn and sun semi square Saturn could kind of feel like a bit of a Saturn Return for all of us in a way. And what that really means is that okay, fine, you you wrote the big wave on Saturday you allow yourself to burst open your fishbowl universe, you said the things you needed to say. And now as a result of you saying the things you needed to say that caused the fishbowl universe to burst apart to begin with, you now are buzzing with the energy of mercury Uranus because you feel a greater sense of insight and possibility and you can see all the ways in which you can now take this newfound freedom back into your life to do something new and original and creative and wonderful. Well Sunday says Okay, now that you've done all about wreaking havoc and reconstituting yourself, who are you going to be what are you making physical now with this energy of Sun semi square Saturn? What are you making physical within the world now that actually allows you to feel a deeper sense of what your newfound purposes what are you bringing to life and that could be a very heavy thing. especially after coming off of the high of the mercury Uranus the day before that could be very heavy thing. It's like, oh, if I avoid, why do I have to now all of a sudden grow up so suddenly. And a part of that is that because we're all adults, you know, for the most part, those of us who are listening, we have gone through some things in life that have made us mature to a level where, yes, we could experience freedom on one day, but the next day, we do have to come back to our adult decision making processes. And we also have to re organize ourselves within the petri dish of life. Because even though you persisted, open your fishbowl, you can first open the petri dish until the day you die. Because the petri dish is this physical life that you live in. So you first open the fishbowl. But now you have to reconstitute yourself and a part of the Saturnian petri dish of life in a thing or in activities that actually turn you on, or in activities that actually give you a sense of purposeful existence. And then might feel like having to grow up far too fast, far too soon. It's like, Oh, my God, I just experienced this freedom. Now I have to grow up. Yes, now you have to grow up because we all have to come back. So take advantage of the processes that we're going through this week. Allow yourself to go through the movement of them to face the dissatisfaction of being where you are to slow down long enough to see what's lurking in the background, to also give yourself the opportunity to realize whether or not the tools you have at your disposal are working for you or not, to then realize that this fishbowl is too small to hold me and I'm a shark trying to live in the fishbowl so I should probably break open the fishbowl and return to the ocean. And know that in returning to the ocean with your adult Sharky self, you do also have to make adult Sharky decisions about the new version of yourself that you're creating and about the new version of yourself that you want to be. And so don't consider that don't feel overburdened by that. Because all that is is the universe saying, now that you've made the change? What are you planning? What new contracts are you planning to stand behind, in light of the changes that you've made, so that you can move through the rest of your year with a sense of wisdom, integrity, pride and maturity?
Amanda Pua Walsh 47:22
Mychal, you just perfectly summarized everything that you said. But that's normally what I do at the end. But as you were doing, I was like, wow, that was just amazing. And one of the things that you said to our inner circle community is that the theme for the entire lunar cycle was that we are in a crucible of transformation. And what you just outlined for this particular week, sounds like a very like tight microcosm of that transformative process, right? Becoming aware of the limitations, being pulled by a vision, having to face the things that are keeping you from that vision, having to then step into the vision in a new way. And it all just seems like it's laid out perfectly. I love to call it the cosmic curriculum. And it sounds like the cosmic curriculum is just like day to day today, today, walking us through this process. And I love what you reminded us of that we don't have to do it all at once that we could sort of be mindful of the process as it's happening, but really decide to focus on certain elements of it, as we're going throughout our week. So I'm not going to spend a ton of time on the summary because you just did it so perfectly. But a few reminders. And that is that the overarching theme for this week that you identified was really a lot around these personal contracts. And coming back to this personal contract with yourself. One of the questions I love to walk with or ask and just hold in my heart is, what am I here to contribute? What am I uniquely formed around to contribute? And I love how you emphasize being receptive for the answers because sometimes we think we know or we want it to be something because that's comfortable and safe, and it's what we've been doing. But that might not always be the answer that you get to being open and receptive is something that you reminded us to do. You reminded us to honor the power of our words. You reminded us about the truth in our name, both the actual name and our energetic name. We're having lots of opportunities to dream this week. We're having lots of it sounds like a lot of spiritual opening and awareness is available, which I think probably will feel pretty good to people because it's it has felt somewhat, I think somewhat mundane and dense. A lot of this year so far. So having that opportunity for the more expansive okay here Here's the bigger picture, like, here's what's really going on behind what appears to be going on. Okay, you get, then we're gonna have this opportunity to look at the tools in our environment and where it's too small, and then break that open with some sort of like lightning type force that comes through and just illuminates and allows us to break open. And this idea of trusting where I've come from, trust the insight. So as you're receiving insights, trust them, and write them down, or, you know, somehow select put some energy behind them. And, and really trust where that's coming from. Mychal, it sounds like an amazing week, if you had to give it an intensity score on a scale of one to 10, with one being not intense at all, and 10 being the most intense we could possibly have. What would you put it up?
Mychal Bryan 50:54
That's a really good question. I think I'm looking at Tuesday in particular, which is the day after the equinox, when we have the Mars, the Mars, Uranus story going on. And that, for me feels pretty intense. And that, to me feels like the highlight the high period of this crucible of transformation. And I think it's going to be intense on a personal level. But I also can see that being a very intense day in the world at large because Mars Uranus is a combination of of things, that things that explode, or things that are accidents or things are the rocks, it is a very volcanic combination. So I think that that's going to be very intensity in the world. But I also think it's going to be very intensity for us. And I think some of the disillusionment and the disappointment, and all of those things that comes up as a result of that within the coming week. But also the fact that in the loss of those things, we have the opportunity to dream, a new dream and think about things in different ways. It feels pretty high up there. I'd give the speaker I'd give the speaker a solid nine.
Amanda Pua Walsh 52:02
Okay, great. One of one of our inner circle, I mean, great, like, it's good to know, it's just good to know. And then we can we can work with it more productively, someone in our inner circle named Maya, posted, you know, you you said the theme for the month, the lunar cycle was crucible of transformation. And shortly after she posted in our inner circle group and said, Does anyone find themselves just going throughout their day? thinking or saying out loud, I am in a crucible of transformation. And it was just so funny. There's so many, so many comments underneath the people saying, yes, there's so much going on. And just remembering that we are in this crucible, can be so helpful, and also provide a little comic relief as things feel really heavy and serious. So yeah. All right, Mychal, thank you so much.
