The Closing of Eclipse Season: Practicing Resurrection
Hello alchemists and travelers! I hope that you have been navigating this eclipse season with grace and gratitude.
The past few weeks have been powerful, and if you have been doing 'the work' along the way, the healing and insights gained will have a profound effect on your world. Remember, the past 6 weeks have helped us to focus on what we value in our surroundings and daily experiences, as well as the deeper truths that motivate our choices and direction. These effect our 'real world' choices, in a grounded and tangible way, so avoidance isn't really an option! (Nor should we wish for it!)
One of the big themes of Scorpio (the eclipse last week) is Death and Endings, which understandably can stir up some tension and fear for those who hold suffering in connection with these. But I would like to propose a new way of looking at these as we move towards a New Moon in Gemini (which helps us to...
Eclipses: Following Your Fate
The day before...
In less than 24 hours, the Full Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio begins. And because you still have some time to prepare, I wanted to send a bit of information and some areas to address, enabling you to take full advantage of the power and potency in this moment of your life.
The Nodes are connect with our fate, destiny, our greatest threads and themes in this lifetime. And this eclipse connects with the South Node, which highlights where we have come from, so that we can free ourselves from the old story and karmic cycles, and begin to create anew.
Over the next few days, spend some time meditating on the 'darker' sides of Scorpio, the aspects you've been afraid to acknowledge, the parts you've hidden away. Scorpio deals with death, the taboo, sex, drugs, & rock and roll, our old shame and the ways we have been 'wrong'. These aspects are deeply held and require courage to face.
If you can engage your courage...
As I speak to clients and friends, the past few months have highlighted some common themes. One of the biggest is a feeling, not of being lost, but lost-ish. People haven't felt totally in the dark, but the way has appeared cloudy or blurred. Either the next step feels unclear because it is new territory, (and there will always be some doubt in navigating the new), or because there are a few potential paths to follow, but the way doesn't seem obvious.
Instead of trying to find the perfect path, or stressing that you're going to lose your way, here is my advice to you:
Get Directionally Correct.
That's it. If tomorrow isn't crystal clear, then simply decide which way you want it to go.
If you want to move towards better health, make a plan that includes better food, more movement, less booze, more sun, or whatever combination would be useful.
If you want to move towards understanding yourself, meditate, try new...
I've spoken a lot recently about the ways we attempt to alter our own chemistry, so that we can feel different. We drink, smoke, eat, walk, sleep, dance, sing, clean, and choose other activities in an attempt to feel better. We know that some of these choices will up our Dopamine and Serotonin levels, so we pick things that feel easy and convenient to alter our states.
Especially over the past few years, many of us have felt low, either frequently, or at some point, collectively grieving what we have missed, and the lack of shared experiences. The problem is that often when we go too low, we over shoot, and seek out a high.
Highs are temporary, fleeting, and often come with a crash after-our bodies cannot sustain them, nor are we meant to live in them all of the time. And highs are often pursued through unhealthy patterns, addiction, cravings, trying to fill a gap, and they never really satisfy.
So here is what I am proposing:
High is not...
Although we are a few weeks into Spring and a new astrological year, things may not feel as 'solid' or formed as we would like for them to be. We have cardinal energy to inspire us, fire to ignite passion, and the Warrior/Aries energy to give us direction.
But we are also moving towards Eclipse Season (cue dramatic music!) ;)
Each year, I normally spend some time connecting with the eclipses, making plans that work with the energies present, and generally being aware of their effect.
This year is different. This year, my focus keeps being drawn to the eclipses, and I have been feeling compelled to make them a focus for the year.
Here is just a little bit of info to give some clarity (we'll go deeper during eclipse season)-
The eclipses this year are on the Taurus/Scorpio axis. So for those of you with a lot of energy in either sign, you're going to feel it! And even if you don't, these transits will absolutely effect you too.
Taurus energy centres on...
Hello beautiful beings! We are currently between 2 eclipses, and heading deeper into Sagittarius Season! This week is an ideal time to shed old skins, masks, roles, identities. And as you create spaciousness within, you gain clarity to choose what will support and nurture you over the coming season.
Take time this week to sit and breathe. Connect with your body and emotions. Seek the deeper meaning in what you feel and what you experience. The answers are within.
If we fight against, we become small and fixed. But this is a time to expand. Allow yourself to expand your mind, and what you think you know. This is how we learn.
Allow yourself to expand your heart and the ways you experience life. This is how we learn to shift our emotional states and the way we feel in this world.
Allow yourself to expand your focus and the ways you view others around you. This is how we see beyond what can be seen.
Hello humans! I hope that you are navigating this Scorpio Season with grace! At the moment, things may be feeling a little intense, unsteady, or overwhelming. Now is the time to breathe deep, dig deep, and recognise that the discomfort or pain that is surfacing is simply what needs your attention right now. And as you address the issues being highlighted, you heal. Not through avoidance, running away, or sweeping things under the rug, but by embracing the opportunity to heal instead of hide. There is no way out, only through.
And if you can embrace this, your Eclipse Season (we're in it now!) is going to feel much more manageable! We are approaching a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, and this one will be particularly powerful because it will be highlighting our earthliness, our quality of life as human beings.
This week has a huge emphasis on quality of life, particularly embodied living, being present within your...
We are nearing the end of eclipse season, a time to clear your mind and body, to recalibrate your course, with fresh eyes and intuition. For many, the past 6 weeks have been changeable, a bit of a roller coaster, unsure of the coming days or even moments. As this energy begins to settle, we can assess what has altered and what has remained.
For those who have been more courageous, consciously editing their minds and lives, what remains will be strong, and have integrity. These are the foundations to build upon, they will last. If we have hesitated, or allowed ourselves to remain in wishful thinking, there may still be options present that lead to nowhere.
Over the past year or so, I've been contemplating what God is to me. I know that we can have some conflicting beliefs and ideas about the divine, so I've started to question/ponder what is worthy of my worship, praise, devotion. We all 'worship' different things in...
