Many will sense that something quite mystical and magical is occurring and those who are attuned to such things can really sense this. If you stay present to the new energies, it may soften the intensity the energies and situations in your life. A key will be to go with the flow, not push rivers around, surrender to those things you can’t control and manage the things you can. The serenity prayer is a perfect one to keep saying now. Some things you can impact, others you can’t, ask for guidance in knowing which is which.
