It is the natural instinct of most parents to protect their young. Throughout the animal and human kingdom, when an offspring is in danger, the parent is compelled to protect them. We have even heard the stories of mothers able to lift heavy objects in order to save and free their children. This protection emanates from love, which can be a shield from almost any danger. It is this love that we completely rely upon as babies and young children. While learning to walk as toddlers, we need almost constant protection from our parents or guardians. Even as adults, this need still exists. As we stumble through adult lives, the Creator is forever watching over us and shielding us from negativity. The love of the Creator brings forth a protection shield, and this week, that force is reenergized into the cosmos. This week ushers in the new moon of Scorpio, a month known for its challenges and the famous biblical flood. As our antidote to the energies of this month, our protection shield of love is activated and renewed. Our gift this week is the Light of protection.
