Need some help getting focused? After a month of eclipses in March and with planetary retrogrades coming up, don’t feel bad if you feel a bit off-balance. These energies take time to integrate which is why the Roman Goddess Vesta is so welcome for our week.
Her Sacred Flame burns bright to bring us back to center. As the Goddess of hearth, home, and family, She gently but firmly reminds us to be mindful of what is important. The latin word for “hearth” is focus and as I sat with Vesta for this reading, that is precisely what She said. Focus. Find your center. Take time to clean your home and sanctuary space. Allow the cleaning and tending to become a meditation. Don’t become attached to the energy of “being busy”, but instead allow for satisfaction in the step-by-step accomplishment of routine tasks around home.
After physically cleaning, do an energetic “sweep” with some energy clearing smudge. Keeping your space and person clear will help you return to center. Bring some Spring flowers in, light candles, burn incense, and create the space that makes you want to stay in it!
Light a lovely red or orange candle in your newly-spiffed space for Vesta. She will keep the home fires burning brightly and steadily all week for you.
Wishing you focus and grounding, but also inspiration with Vesta!
