I always like to begin any conversation about astrology with the following:
“The planets are not doing anything to us.”
We have free will. We get to choose what we do, when we move and when we stay still. The cosmos cannot change that.
Astrology is about becoming aware of the energies of these celestial bodies and choosing to align with them. It’s about using our free will in tandem with the planets. That’s when we are able to be supported and ride these currents of energy; instead of being hit with wave after wave.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse is encouraging us to let it be easy. It’s the energy of making an expansive wish even when you have no idea how it will come into form. It’s the vibration of miracles, magic and dreams come true.
Some juicy experiences are being handed to us on a silver platter. However in order to receive them we have to overhaul our perspectives; especially those we hold about ourselves.
The thing is we are hardwired to struggle. We learn to work hard and earn every penny. We are told to be “realistic” and practical. Often times these entrenched beliefs and longings to please an external authority leave us feeling depleted or frustrated.
Now is the time to reprogram our attitudes. To choose peace, compassion and forgiveness. To accept our emotions and allow ourselves to come to terms with life as it is.
We’ve learned to try really hard. We’ve been told we must be trail blazers and fight for what’s “right”.
What if there is nothing to fight for? What if everything is “right” exactly as it is?
What if the path is already paved and simply waiting for us to walk it?
Of course this takes creativity and trust to see our struggles as wars that are simply not worth fighting anymore.
As humans we make it harder on ourselves than it has to be. All we have to do right now is put one foot in front of the other. Let us take a breather when we need rest while doing the best we can to adopt optimistic attitudes towards ourselves and our futures.
Are you exhausted? Are you tired of the same struggles and problems?
Give up the belief that you are alone in this.
Lean into the force of life.
Let this life force carry you, guide you and show you the way.
Be led instead of rushing the front lines.
These energies are game changers. This is because life as we know it has transformed. Jump down the rabbit hole. Fall into wonderland. Realize everything you think you know has shifted. It’s okay to feel foggy and hopeless.
Life loves you. Life has got you. It always has and it always will.
Now is the time to believe it. Then you will see it.
