Planet Earth is on the verge of a Lunar Eclipse; a lunar eclipse is an amplified Full Moon. You are being given the opportunity to shed the last 6 months and prepare for the next 6 months. The energy of a Lunar Eclipse is intense so it’s important to be gentle with yourself this week. Although the Eclipse is exact on August 18th, you may be feeling it’s effects all week. This is a time of shedding, releasing, forgiving and letting go. The new cycle will begin with a Solar Eclipse on September 1st (more on that later this month).
For now let us focus on the cleansing and letting go as it is a necessary precursor for the birthing that will occur come September. 2016 has been intense; Mars retrograde hashed up a lot of subconscious patterns and self sabotaging tendencies. Good news is we are emerging from that period.
Look back to March 2016 and reflect on what was occurring in your life. In one way or another it’s time to tie up lose ends that began in March. Chances are March was a foggy time, there could have been a ton of potential swirling around but you may have had no clue how to implement these ideas into your life. More good news; clarity is coming back online.
However in order to receive clear guidance you must see yourself clearly. The lesson right now is that you are a star. You have an authentic radiance that makes a difference to the collective. No more holding back or playing small. You do not need to sacrifice yourself anymore. No more putting others before you.
It’s time to step into your own personal stardom; but in order to do so you must do a final purging of all the limiting beliefs that are holing you back. Inspiration has been hitting for a reason. Potential abounds right now. Perhaps there’s new relationships blossoming, a career opportunity or simply a chance to play; there’s no limiting the new that is emerging and it is unique to each individual.
Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed or blown away by the possibilities that are emerging. Remember that until September 1st it is a time of shedding. Catch the inspiration and hold the vision; you do not need to know all the details right now. Trust that the divine is taking care of them. You job is to focus on yourself. Get interested in what you love, commit to your radiance and reflect on what you have learned since March.
It’s important to take a nonjudgmental stance on what has occurred over the last 6 months. See whatever has happened as your teacher, forgive any resentments and carry what you have learned into the next chapter. You are coming out of the gutter, it is safe to be yourself and when you allow yourself to be authentic you give a gift to the planet.
