So, the big lunar eclipse is ‘here’… it’s exciting and I am looking forward to it. Like all astrological events that carry some clout – these are moments in linear time for us to really check-in with ourselves. On a deeper level. A w-a-y deeper level.
After much research and studying up on this particular lunar eclipse I have come to the conclusion that this one is goona be ‘juicy’!
On Friday, July 27th, and/or the 28th (depending on where you are in the ‘time-zone’ world), it is a Blood Red Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (Wow! …and it’s in Aquarius. I’m sure there is a ‘degree’ in there somewhere but I’ll be honest… not my level of expertise. Edit: it’s 4 degrees in Aquarius). This is the longest ‘total’ Lunar Eclipse this century, lasting 1 hour and 23 minutes (I’ve also read it’s an hour and 43 minutes). Time will tell (haha! It will though). Also going on: hours before the eclipse, Mercury turns retrograde in Leo (on Thursday the 26th).
What does Mercury retrograde mean for me? Since this usually happens a couple times a year, it’s not news. But it is when the energies around this Earthly-planet get kind of weird and a little ‘off‘. Emotions seem to be in a heightened mode. The communication ‘systems’ go a little hay-wired. I feel it’s a time to be gentle with yourself (and others) because there might be some misunderstandings happening around you and with/to you. It’s also a time for us all to stop and give some things in our lives a ‘review’. Reflection time! 🙂 What you need to review is going to be totally different than for someone else. So… Slow it down, reflect, don’t be hasty, be patient, stay flexible. Random side-note: I try not to ‘sign’ anything during a Mercury retrograde! Funny, but true. Anything that needs to be signed, finalized, or set-in-stone… well, it can wait! Spend the time contemplating it. Make finalizations after Mercury comes on back out of retrograde!
Mercury may be the famous retrograding planet that everyone knows and talks about… but we have a handful of other planets doing their retrograde thing right now too. The list seems to be: Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, and (not a planet but a comet) Chiron. Wowie-Wow! I am, and have been, feeling this! (I am also under the impression that you would be able to see the planets during the eclipse time. That would be cool!)
So, what do these planets represent in our lives? Let’s see… we got: Mercury – communication. Mars – action/passion/energy; human energy. Saturn – karma/limits. Neptune – personal/self-love; and the mysterious. Pluto – transformation. And Chiron – ‘the wounded healer’.
What a nice potpourri of things! Looks like we all need to be working on quite a bit-of-stuff! Adding in the eclipses; we are between two (or about to have the lunar as I write this). Man, the energy is high right now and I just gotta say: I am so in love with the Universe! So, so, amazing! How can one not get all giddy and feel the love right now?! Christmas in July? YES! 🙂 Let’s go!! There are no brakes in this car! It’s go-time; no stoppin’ now! Sit down, shut-up, and hold on! And how-ever many more cliché things I can say here! Can you tell I’m pretty stoked about all this beautiful transformation that is happening right now? It really is a great time to be alive on this planet!
With this lunar eclipse it looks like things are going to be brought up to the surface and drawn out of us so we can activate our ‘remembrance’ of what we came here to be/do and what our purpose is (moving forward). I, personally, have been on this journey for quite a few years now. This doesn’t scare me at all, can you tell? 🙂 I find it exciting! There is nothing to fear… nothing.
If this is new to you… you might have all kinds of things going on that you may or may not quite understand. Inner and outer: there could be some drama, some hot-mess, some heated moments, a few ugly situations, feeling like there might be something out of control (it’s really not, you just need to look at why it’s going on in the first place). Don’t forget: you are in the mix with others having their ‘mix’ as well. It is a soup but it can be souper (hahaha, terrible pun, I know) amazing when it’s all said and done. Come from that place of love and compassion. Shift your perspective on things, see the positives, be the positive. It will probably shift so many things, and for others too, to bring better outcomes.
On that note: There will be emotional baggage you carry that would like to be in your spot light so you can take a look at it. If it comes up (and it will): deal with it. Start the process of dealing with it. You might have some physical ailments that need a deeper look too. Your body has probably been screaming at you for a while now. It can’t take it anymore and would like a direct-line to your ‘office’! Answer the call… it will be the best conversation you’ve ever had! Talk to your body; it’s listening. And we can’t forget that there’s also going to be some crying. Hopefully it will be the good kind of crying. That deep inner soul cry that you are fully recognizing something in you: you acknowledged it, you learned from it, you thanked it, even loved it… then released it! Yup, those are the BEST crying sessions… ever!
There also might be situations where you will need to, or are, letting people ‘go’; letting a relationship ‘go’ (people, pets, jobs…). Old stuff just isn’t working for you any more… because it’s not supposed to; it’s probably way past its expiration date. Take a look at ‘it’… a real good look. Intuitively, you should know what to do. Seriously, what does your heart tell you (or your gut)? That is your inner-knowing. If you haven’t been utilizing it… now is a great time to start. Meditation is awesome for that! I would go into that but not here or right now. That is a whole ‘nuther page! Maybe I’ll journal about my thoughts on meditation at another time. Bottom line: Love it! Do it! Practice it! And what better time to start/continue/develop/or even evolve meditation: the lunar eclipse on the full moon!
The energy/energies will be intense on so many levels but it’s all for the good of the oneness that we are. Unity consciousness. Through anything and everything – this is a great time to be, hopefully, digging deep within yourself and facing whatever it is you have been ‘stuffing-away’. Let stuff go; especially if it isn’t even yours! It is time to grow!
Besides doing all this home-work… there’s fun stuff going on too! This is the time to also be dreaming big! Open yourself up to the possibilities, the potential, and the love that you are! Find the joy, find the fun! Deepen the connections with what you truly love (people/relationships, places, pets; your creativity, a job/career you absolutely love and adore)! Because when you have been dumping a lot of stuff that isn’t truly you, when you begin to unload/lighten your load; you let more and more love for your true self to come in. At least – I hope you would be! It’s absolutely beautiful. Wonderful! Freeing! And… just amazing! Stay on the path of being your true self (finding your true-self); loving yourself, nurturing yourself. Stay positive, give yourself some time, and be gentle. You’re not going crazy; you are awakening, ascending, evolving. Growth can have some painful spots… it’s all-good!
So, during this amazing event… I can’t ‘see’ it where I live but I want to totally give it the acknowledgement it deserves. It will be in the morning for me but that won’t stop me from staring into the sky and talking to the moon, the Universe, my higher self! 🙂 I am also certain that I will ‘feel’ it… all day long! And at bedtime: I bet my dream(s) are going to be crazy-vivid-good! Lately, I have been doing a lot of ‘work’ in my dream-time.
So, where ever you are: physically (and physically … on the planet), mentally, spiritually (mind, body, spirit) during this lovely eclipse…
I hope you: 1) get to ‘see’ it or enjoy the moon in some way. (May we all have clear skies; no cloud cover, or smoky/hazy skies)! If it’s during the day; don’t let that stop you.
2) Send yourself love.
3) Send others; as well as Gaia, love.
4) Be open and honest with yourself at this time. No beating yourself up; not anymore! Be gentle with yourself. Change doesn’t happen overnight (well, sometimes it does/can). When you are working through A LOT of stuff – it’s probably going to take some time. Taking baby-steps to a better you is good.
5) If you are healing; beginning your healing journey, or need to start the process: send yourself even more love! Send your-self light as well. Green is a pretty amazing healing color to think of and/or look at. Be kind to yourself. No negative self-talk. Tell your self/physical body ‘I love you’!
6) Be caring, compassionate, nurturing, and patient. Remember that we all have our own struggles and things to work on. No two people have identical issues. Some things may be similar but at a deeper level… that’s where we all have to go ‘inward’ and process differently.
7) Release, release, release! Let shit go! Clear it from you! It no longer serves you. It’s old and out dated. Purge, dump, clean and clear! Whatever it is that you have been clinging on to… it probably wants to be let go, it needs to be let go.
8) Be happy, joyous, be unique, be you (because everybody else has been taken… or whatever that saying is!); be the love and the light that you truly are.
Good things are on their way…
Love and blessings everyone!
Happy Christmas in July!
Ya, I just had to say that (again) because it fits!
