I love all these energy-days, portal days, gateways, eclipses… they are such a great time to check-in with yourself.
They can be, if you ‘take note’ and utilize them in that sense.
I’ve always loved these kind of events, even as a kid. I always thought these kinds of cosmic days had a special-feel to them, they were cool and amazing. Astrology-wise I liked the information, guidance or direction, that was offered but I didn’t really understand the deeper/spiritual meaning of ‘why’ until I started waking up.
These are days of higher consciousness, Christ-Conscious, awareness, higher vibration, and Universal love and support – unity consciousness. Little booster-blasts from the Universe, the Cosmos, to and for us.
When I try to think about how amazing this Universe is and how everything is perfectly designed, timed (linear for us humans), and adjusted (maybe/sometimes/probably) … all for our awakening and ascension… it blows-my-mind! I know I am barely scratching the surface when I ponder the Universe and how our planet is this big, beautiful, experiment.
Today (20th or 21st) we have this Full Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse thing happening! Woah! What else can we add to this? It’s at zero degrees (that ‘zero-point’ kind of thing – where physical meets spiritual) and let’s also throw on the power of the 3 too! Creative, creative, creative!!
I hope my head doesn’t explode when I head out to the backyard tonight to bask in all of its glory! Also… I really hope I have clear enough skies to enjoy it visually. It’s been touch and go around here; most nights have been cloudy.
Eclipses, in general, can bring on sudden change: they can illuminate/expose and they can be catalysts/triggers. Depending on what you need to be working on; something deep that needs to come up (probably). They can be path correctors, path aligners, re-aligners/adjusters, boosters, accelerators, and expanders. Lunar eclipses can help you close-up shop, get some completion, finish things (all to start new again… ahhh, the cycles). We are all at different places within – so experiences will vary… for sure!
This event has so much going on! And… is setting everyone up for success – if you utilize it and let it help you anchor your intentions. Your awesome and wonderful highest-good intentions! I don’t know about you – but this thing just sounds so dreamy and lovely!
Tonight, while the energy is high-powered I will be journaling, dream-listing, reality-listing, conjuring up some goals, and setting intentions. I will be getting into the high-vibrational zone and the feel good energy! Then there will be a few moments (if the clouds will allow it) of stepping out to look directly at the action taking place. (*If it was warmer than the 10 degrees where I live… I would be hanging-out outside much longer and really ‘being-with-it’.)
I don’t know if I will feel compelled to howl at the moon; while I am outside freezing my butt-off and drinking it all in. If I do – there is a possible chance that I just might get an answer back. It would most likely be a coyote – but hey… we’re still in the Year of the Dog, right?! That’s also: Me. My Chinese zodiac is the Dog. Maybe I will finish off the Year of the Dog with that great, loud, emotional howl at the moon! Releasing all the ‘old’ while opening up to the ‘new’!
This lunar eclipse is the other ‘book-end’ to the solar eclipse we had back in August of 2017 (Leo eclipses). Yup… ‘closing up shop’ for that Leo cycle we all just went through.
Completion! Completion in order to start new! Closure then rebirth! New for 2019! New energies of creation and creativity, joy, happiness, love, Spirit, abundance, opportunities, leading to manifestation and more growth. Sounds good to me!
Happy Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse!
Give yourself a good ‘checking-in’!
We are a week into the 2019 year and already getting to set some new-energies-intentions with this new moon – partial solar eclipse. The first of a few eclipses this year (Lunar too).
I mean, one can set intentions at any time but doing it for the year, with the intensity of an eclipse, is even better. 2019 is bringing us a new level of expansion with creative energy. Let’s put some jam on that bread!
I am not a new year resolution type of person. Not really. I make (or set) new intentions/goal setting throughout the year so I was never really into the January 1st thing. I do set a couple of goal, ideas, concepts for the year… but I feel they are more moldable and flexible than a ‘resolution’.
To me, the meaning of resolution is like a vow or a firm commitment. It just sounds too form-fitting to me and maybe that’s why I don’t really make them. I like to let goals and intentions have fluidity; to change and adapt if need be. The core of it sticks around but in its totality … never set in stone.
Maybe that’s why resolutions ‘fail’ for so many. It’s too strict. It’s too… old energy. We don’t need this kind-of ‘ruler slapping the hand’ mentality anymore. If the struggle is real, don’t bail and give up on it. Change it and work with it. Come at it at a different angle or perspective. There’s ways to get your goal achieved – you have to be open to let it shift around a bit for you – to eventually get you there.
I’ve learned how to be relaxed about some of my goals. Goals are intention setting – and when you ask the Universe for guidance to get you there; it might take more time than you thought, it might be a winding road. Depending on how grandiose the goal might be; remind yourself: there’s a lot of moving pieces and parts that need to come together at the right time and right place.
With this particular partial solar eclipse, and new moon, I will be doing my ‘seed planting’ thing for this amazing year we are now in. I will be setting some intentions for the year that are not only ‘goals intended’ but they will also be open to interpretation (to the Universe). Because sometimes when you think you want ‘this’ the Universe might give you ‘that’ – and it is up to you to do ‘something’ with it. That’s the flexibility I allow. I am open to receive.
I like that it’s a 3 year. 2+0+1+9 = 1+2 = 3! I love this number. It’s also my life path number (Numerology). It’s a creative, imaginative, expressive and joyful number. I feel a resonance with this year and that it will be a productive/creative one. I’ll set my intentions for it to be so!
If you want to know about your life path number, and want to have some fun… go do some quick math here:
I have only recently, in about the last 3-4 years (this is my 4th year of consciously enjoying this portal day), been truly aware of the Lion’s Gate (Lion’s Gateway) on 8-8.
I am not even going to pretend I’ve always known about this portal/gate way. Because I haven’t.
However, I have always felt that 8-8 had some sort of significance. Didn’t know what it was or why I ‘felt’ energetic high’s on (and around) this time. I didn’t really put the puzzle pieces together until a few years ago; when I happen to stumble upon something that would lead me to the next thing… information regarding 8-8: the Lion’s Gate. In fact, it was the ‘rare’ 8-8-8 (in 2015: the year of ‘8’) that I would find this; it ‘clicked’/resonated. I took notice, and I was like: ‘Oh, this is so Cool’!
Since there are no coincidences; I was meant to discover this on a deeper level and have it become a part of my new life. I remember really feeling the energies of that Lion’s Gate day (in 2015) – which prompted me to go investigate. Hence, the trail of crumbs I followed to discover and learn about this yearly activation. When you ‘choose’ at a soul level, you will feel/recognize the ‘prompts’ to help lead you where you/your soul wants to go. Apparently this one was long overdue!
So, long story longer… there was a good reason why I (always) ‘felt’ this day.
The quick-compiled description of the Lion’s Gateway is:
The Lions Gate is a time of increased Universal/cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual/the Divine; it occurs in the astrological (zodiac) sign of Leo. It is an alignment with the Earth, the star Sirius, and the Galactic Center; thus becoming a portal/gateway. When this alignment happens, there is an intense surge of light which awakens DNA and transmits high vibrational frequencies and codes/key codes/star codes of and for awakening.
There is so much more information about this special day but that would have me writing way more than I intended. With each passing year, though, it seems there are more articles, more information, and people/light-workers talking openly about the Lion’s Gate. So awesome!
I’m not really wanting to get into the how and why’s of it all. There is enough info out there (elsewhere) that is easy to look up. I just want to journal what this is for me.
I am understanding that this one is packed with a punch and will flow right on into the New Moon Solar Eclipse just 3 days later. It’s a nice ending (it’s never ending… but you know what I mean) to all this fun eclipse action we have been having. It’s all here to speed up our ascension. A nice kick-in-the-butt, if you will. Soooo many of us will feel this, probably for days!
On the 8th we will receive new Light Codes for our empowerment, strength, freedom, and abundance (to name a few). Then just days later, on the 11th, is the New Moon Solar Eclipse (11:11). This is a great time to, once again, release (more) of what’s no longer serving you. To also really open your heart, feel the joy, express yourself, find (or re-ignite) your passion(s). Let your inner-child out; yes… come out and play!
There are probably some things that you have been putting on the back-burner; maybe it’s an art class, or dance class. Maybe some swimming, surfing, rock climbing or riding a bike through some cool mountain trails. Maybe it’s something that is not as schedule-intruding like: planting some herbs (get your garden-on!); deep-cleaning that bathroom that seems to have gotten away from you lately. Get out, and dust-off, that oh-so amazing recipe from grandma. Then conjure up the confidence to make it (and hopefully eat it too; with friends or family maybe?). Bring out that inner-chef! Whateverit is: NOW is the time to take yourself up on your ‘offer’… and do it! A ‘back-burner’ thought/idea/activity/plan can come to the front! Even those baby-steps count. Just signing up for a class; committing to it – that alone can be a huge step for some.
Remember that each door you open and go through will lead you to your next door (of growth and opportunity). This is also the time to be standing strong (Leo/lion = courage!) and take authority of yourself and your life. Be the truly unique person that you are; be the beautiful light that you are, and come from the place of love. It’s all good… and it will be: all good! Trust your intuition, your guides, and the Universe. This is a time of new beginnings! Y-e-s! 🙂
I, myself, have been super tired (and wired) lately. I know why though… and it’s a good kind of tired. All this energy; all these upgrades, downloads, frequencies, high vibrations! Whew! I can’t seem to get enough meditation time or sleep. I just want to be in meditation (all-the-time!). When I am done with a session, I am already thinking about, and getting excited for, my next session. There are times when I think that it’s kind-of disruptive to my day… and then I quickly realize: I don’t care! What I care about is taking care of my physical (and, yes, spiritual) body while all this beautiful Universal-Pure Source activity is going on! The physical upgrades, alone, can be quite a handful! I have been feeling, sensing, noticing, and witnessing some different changes going on with my body (this year alone has been a doozy).
Just last week – I physically saw my heart beating out of my chest! It was almost cartoonish and a little surreal (but very real). My heart chakra is/has been opening up and re-adjusting itself for a while now (doing lots of work there). When I do have those occasional moments of ‘heart palpitations’ I know it’s an ‘ascension symptom’. This one, I will say, was one of my biggest heart palp moments I have ever had. It didn’t scare me at all. I actually stopped what I was doing to watch this happen right before my eyes! Even though it lasted, probably, 10 or 12 seconds; I was feeling joy and gratitude for the evolution my heart/chakra is receiving and opening up to. I would later find out that we were all receiving heart-opening codes and energies around that time. That makes sense! Thank you Universe! I accept! 🙂
Discovering the possible cause/reasons why (what is energetically happening on and for the planet) help validate. I have a knowing and I trust; but as a human… I also like validation and some confirmation along the way. So, connecting-the-dots of the planetary upgrades with a physical symptom… can ease my mind a bit and keep me grounded! It does help keep you from going a little coo-coo. 🙂
So, along with meditation and sleep, I am eating what I intuitively need to eat. Taking supplements to fill any gaps and drinking plenty of water. Right now I am boosting my vitamin C intake. Not only is this an awesome power vitamin to help if you are breathing a lot of smoke-filled wildfire air (like we currently are); it’s going to help you ward off any ascension flu-like symptoms you may encounter.
During the Lion’s Gate I will be open to receive (as always) and just soak it in. As for the 11th, I will be deep into my sleep state when the eclipse happens (@2:58 am pacific time), hopefully having some awesome vivid dreams! 🙂
Enjoy all this wonderful energy coming in everyone! Take good care of yourself, nurture yourself. When you take good care of yourself… well, I could write something ‘poetic’ here. Instead, just a statement: take care of yourself! It is your vessel right now. You want to be in an optimal-functioning vessel! Right?!
Peace and Love!
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!
