Well it's 3AM and I can't sleep. The energy out there is amazing. Mars is still retrograde, making us all a tad clumsy (I keep tripping and dropping stuff) but it's also frustrated energy so people are flaring up. A bus almost hit me this morning, just suddenly swooped over like I wasn't even there. I honked repeatedly and he sped up not over, but gave me quite a chill. We're all in a kind of fog and just now at 1AM our brains join Mars in retrograde motion in Leo, where the Sun is also now, initiating drama and craziness. And then Friday is the Eclipse at 4PM with a Full Moon in Aquarius, and a blood moon like they show you in werewolf movies as well. Also the moon and the Sun are squaring Uranus and Venus is opposite Neptune. It's coming at us from everywhere.
Mercury is making our mind see false choices. We're seeing the glass half empty and our mood ranges from cranky to feeling very low, because its a time of letting go. This eclipse is the longest one in 120 years, one hour and twenty minutes long. Eclipses are endings making way for new beginnings. This eclipse is a doozy. Things must be changed. Look at our headlines and we know we're in a social crisis, but within we are having the same crisis. And its also a T-Square affecting the Sun and Moon and Jupiter. T's as I call them, are stress - two squares and an opposition. In a natal chart, It gives people grit, the person probably having had it easy in their past life now has to deal with stress and learn to cope as an almost routine in life. This T is short lived which is excellent as the energy of the day needs no help in being stressful.
The lump under the carpet is in plain view now and you have to deal with it once and for all. This is a time of MAJOR growth and time to dig deep and find yourself and deal with who you REALLY ARE and change what you don't like. Eclipse energy last 6 months, so there is usually a bang when it happens, then like a roller coaster ride thereafter. The eclipse in the Aquarius-Leo signs especially affects those sign as well as Taurus and Scorpio. But if you have planets in Aquarius/Leo they will be hit with this separation energy too.
How to deal? Take it slow. Sit in the eye of the storm. Don't let disagreements escalate. It's the moon remember, so its emotional. We can't think through things, we have to feel now because our mind is taking a break in retrograde. Don't task your mind with too much. Remember too that texts and emails can easily be misunderstood because you're not hearing the emotion in the voice and may take offense at something not meant to be that way. Just ask for clarity instead of being angry or hurt. We need to be kind to each other, because our emotions are being pummeled. Listen to music, it will carry you away from "reality" in a positive way. It's also the perfect time to be creative. Connect to the Universe and become co-creators together and build a bigger bridge to your spirit self which carries you through anything if you have that bond.
There is yet another eclipse on August 11th, but I'll talk about that at another time.
Remember, we live in times where we are CONSTANTLY challenged. This is why your tribe is so important. If you can't be with friends and family, call them, let them hear your voice and bond. Watch happy movies (Mama Mia 2 here I come) and do whatever you can to be "up" because this energy can bring up low self esteem issues too (God I was just loathing myself a few hours ago and snapped myself out of it). Just remember this heavy energy will pass, around the end of August. Have a quiet time from now till August 27th, when your brain will be back online and your energy will have your back again. It's inward work time. Go with the flow, release the past, change your life. You know, the easy stuff!!!
Hello Everyone. I am not sure where to begin with July as there is just so much going on and so much energy being shot at us (yes it will likely feel like that) that I can only only say this month is full of change, stress, some anger issues. and the need for heightened integrity. It's a time when honesty is required. We should not pretend to keep the peace or to avoid hurt feelings, we need to get REAL. You don't have to yell and scream, but you do have to gently tell your truths to people, where it's as simple as your friends never letting you pick the movie you go to see, or big things you avoid because it will rock the boat. The boat needs to be rocked. If we can't learn to live in honesty, then we're doomed. And the more you do it the more natural it becomes. And yes I know this is hard, a big one, but I'm just the messenger, the edict comes from above.
Mars is retrograde, as is Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Chiron and Mercury will be on the 27th. All this slowed energy makes us sluggish on the one hand, and aggravated on the other. People are not working on all cylinders and its the Universe telling us to slow down, rest up for the Fall when things will move shockingly fast. Now is the time for inward work; to renew relationships or end them; to make plans; to do and be an honorable person; use honesty for healing and release.
The good news is Jupiter turns direct on the 12th. She is good luck and expansion. This change will open doors again and good luck will flow to us all. Be patient and move slowly while Jupiter gets it forward motion footing by around the 20th. It is also going to open up TRUTH. News is going to be full of scandals and revelations. Information that has been slow coming will surface and send shockwaves. Get ready to be shocked routinely because a whole lot of wrong doings are going to be made public.
Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus are helping each other now. Uranus' new ideas can be implemented by Saturn and made real and permanent. This is going on for several months so get ready for new institutions and laws to appear. This is also a great time to reinvent yourself. Stop letting others define you. Be your authentic self. Learn to take the ridicule and laughter because individuality and new ideas will turn the messes in the world around, and followers who go along are basically useless now. The world needs push-back. Be yourself, and be proud. And use this retrograde period to do your inner work. We are all going to be asked to do a lot in the coming years, and working from a place of honor is key to making the world a better place.
There are two eclipses this month, and yet another in August. The norm is 2 eclipses, so three is a real wake up call. On July 12th the New Moon Solar eclipse is in Cancer. Cancer rules the home and family. Your "tribe" will be very important now. Do your friends, family and partners support you or bring you down? Only the former can prevail. We need people around us who are there for us, who nurture us and make us feel good about ourselves. It is also time to live in good behavior. We are becoming Spiritual Warriors, and we have to have integrity and honor to do the work that will need to be done, and besides its the right way to live anyhow. Truth, Honor and Integrity are the foundations of a supportive society, it creates stability. We can no longer admire the bad guys, we must become examples to show people how to live in an more authentic way, a way that can be emulated. It is also time to work on yourself and your habits. It's time to release the pain from your childhood and be free of the trauma's you experienced. FORGIVE AND LET GO. No one can change the past, but if you don't release the pain and anger, it keeps the trauma alive. It is time to forgive your parents, siblings and friends and be free of the trauma. It's time for a fresh start in your life. Let the baggage go, so you can be free and get a fresh start in life and be joyful.
On the 27th there is a lunar eclipse in Aquarius. This eclipse energy is about our sense of belonging. Spending time with your "tribe" will be reassuring. Groups can look toward revolutionary thinking and come up with great ideas. It will probably mean dissent and protesting too. Eclipse energy is a 6 month cycle, until the next eclipse. Energy is usually released with a startling event, then goes up and down over the coming 6 months and releases more energy in this direction. We must find our life purpose. Become more confident in our own skin and move forward with the right people around us, while we ourselves begin to rework every part of our life from integrity. It is time to be authentic, real, and not someone who lets other people define who they are. You are amazing, no matter how many mistakes you have made. Step up and be real. Start a new life with new patterns and habits, and change your thinking so you are confident and can carry out this plan for the new you.
The revolution is at our door. Get ready.
