There’s a lot going on right now!
During this full moon in Aquarius, ancestors and ancient wise ones surround us, supporting new ideas, visions, creations, and everyone working to bring about this positive shift. It doesn’t matter if you’re a politician, CEO, local community organizer, teacher, stay-at-home parent, retiree, or anyone else. If you’re all about creating a caring world – a world that comes from love and honoring the interconnectedness of all life – the ancient ones are more present than ever before, offering their unflagging support and unconditional love.
We have a unique access to the wisdom of past lives and past aeons when we honored the sacredness of our individuality and were simultaneously able to blend that individuality together to create a rich tapestry of partnership and kindness. This helps us remember (and help our fellow earthlings to remember) how to live in harmony with humans, Earth and all life on Earth.
To make room for all the new vibrations and transformations, we may experiencing growing pains – for example: sleepless nights, our bodies feeling odd or “off,” headaches, other body aches, relationship issues, or job challenges. You may even experience a feeling of not knowing where you fit in anymore, where you’re headed, or where you’re “supposed” to be. But don’t be alarmed: these are all signs that we’re releasing old energies in order to make room for love, within us and all around us. Whatever you’re experiencing, breathe in love and be kind and gentle with yourself and others.
The Mars retrograde energies are taking us on a journey inward. Consciously bypass the appearance of discord on the surface to connect with the abiding fact that we are love, we are abundance, we are joy, we are gratitude, and we are one with All. We are the magnetic, attractive energies of Earth. We are the sparkling, swirling energies of the Multi-verse. If you look deeply, Mars retrograde will assist with the realization that all is one, and everything is love.
About a day and a half before this full moon (late July 25/early July 26), Mercury goes retrograde in Leo. Leo encompasses the heart, courage, and creativity. Leo also relates to our children and all our loving relationships. Combined with the full moon in Aquarius, the focus is on our future, and particularly the children of the world. What risks are we willing to take to create a world that is safe and nourishing for future generations: grounded in a solid foundation of love, and supported by ancient, ancestral wisdom? Remember that when you evolve, the world evolves. So what beliefs, addictions, and fears are you willing to let go of to help bring about the best possible future for our planet?
The total lunar eclipse creates a safe and nourishing energetic space so the intensity of the energies won’t fry us. Take time to be outside, if possible, and gaze at the moon. Plant your bare feet firmly on Mother Earth. Feel your connection with the Earth at the same time you feel your connection with the moon. Let the two energies flow gently, sweetly, lovingly into your entire being.
Working with such minerals as selenite, gold, silver, hematite, and green tourmaline will help you harmonize and flow with all these powerful shifts. So will drinking plenty of water.
Do be aware that this full moon will trigger powerful intuitive abilities. It’s an excellent time to learn about your own intuition and how to work with it.
Place your attention on yin/yang balance within and around you. Channel the energies of grace, elegance and beauty to create an environment that nourishes you as you participate in the dance of life. Take the time and space you need to focus on your inner work, and remember that you are strong. As the retrogrades begin to go direct, we will shift once again from inner to outer. All along the way, the ancestors will support us as we journey along new ground, with our hearts open, inspired to create the change we are here to create. First, though, focus on the inner work. Connect deeply with your soul. Allow the sacred recognition that we are all manifestations of love itself. Blessed Be.
