From my musings on Facebook:
Don't forget IT IS LEO SEASON. Get as much sunshine (literally/metaphorically) as you can. What makes you smile? What does SHINE mean to you? Where's your joy at?
I feel like we use the word "shine" a lot without being specific as to what it means. It can feel like every cell of your body is glowing. It can feel like being just okay yet being okay with that. It can feel like you are THE SOLAR CENTER of your life (which you are). It can feel like whatever the fuck you want it to. You just need to zoom in on it. Light it up.
This is Eclipse relief.
Because it was a tough one. Leo is the process of individuation- Aquarius is the process of integrating the authentic individual into the collective. Pedestals did not survive this Full Moon in Aquarius. As disappointing as that is to Leo, most of us really. Everybody's falling off them. But at the end of the day this is okay. Because we want equitable relationships, right? Not ones based on hierarchy. Aquarius is not okay with that.
I found myself (along with others) reconsidering the ways I wait, ask, & think I need external approval & validation. Leo tends to get caught up in this but Aquarius is, being the opposite sign, not interested. Aquarius is about individuation that is not processed by how it fits into constructs. I think we spend too much time waiting for "people" to forgive, validate, or see us. But we're not even letting ourselves be seen. Fuck forgiveness, judgement, punishment. We need to start with radical love of the self & collective. And move forward from there. Active love that doesn't evade, ignore, or deny the darkness, but body & bravely embraces it.
I wrote detailed 'scopes for each sign (you can subscribe anytime) about what cycles might be coming to a close with a Lunar Eclipse according to the houses...this means knowing your rising sign. Anyway, it made me think about how Eclipses reverberate. Like, it wasn't over Monday. And it didn't start then either. I feel that it depends on the individual so much- what your process is & exactly how much is being cleared out. That's what I feel this Eclipse was, a big HEY GET RID OF THIS reminder.
We're getting rid of shit because we need soooo much space for what is gonna show up with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st. I think the deeper we let ourselves acknowledge the feelings that came up with the Lunar Eclipse, the clearer we might be. And clarity is truth, is transformation, is power.
Reminder: For the entire month of August aka Eclipse season, you can book an hour 1:1 session with me for $100 (20% off the usual rate). We can talk about your Eclipse story, map out what the Solar Eclipse may be bringing you, & figure out what this Mercury retro (Aug. 12-Sept.5) is telling you.
sending ease & love,
