This week, it's even more evident to me (than it's been in the prior 15 months) that the world is changing, and that it is still critical on an energetic level to be aware of what that change is for you and for the world we want to build.
Bottom line, when we see an opportunity to "Be the Light," it's up to us to do so. At every single turn. I know that can be a lot to have to stay conscious of our daily choices and thoughts, but it's vital. This is a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure dimension (if you're too young to know what those books were, Google it). In this instance, I mean that we are constantly creating our reality at every moment. This is just like "what you focus on expands." If you focus on something you're afraid of, it'll be placed in front of you until you aren't afraid of it anymore, because that's what you've chosen to work on. At every level, it's all about choice.
Those choices are subtle. We aren't always aware of them. Again, that's the tricky part – staying conscious. It's so easy to be lulled to sleep in this dimension, but when we forget to be mindful of our mind, to catch the judging thoughts mid-air, to focus on the good, to BE that which we want to see in the world – love, kindness, joy, fun, hope, support – whatever that is you need at a basic level; when we forget and slip up, what happens? We are reminded.
So make it your priority this week to Be the Light. And be the light for yourself and others. And let's start saying goodbye to this world that no longer serves us.
More on that next week... until then, accept imperfection, because there's nothing worse than trying to do it perfectly.
With love and light,
Astrological Fluidity: Entering eclipse season and witnessing the power of stars
It's the last week of spring and Summer is on the way! Last week I mentioned Mercury Retrograde, and you can view our previous emails on our blog and podcasts page if you missed that one! (http://www.innerselflightworks.com/podcasts)
This week, I want to take a moment to talk about the power of the stars.
When we are born, the stars align to make an astrologically magical mathematical equation that is uniquely ours, our solar system's planets all have their own energies, and how they relate to each other is important. These are called "aspects," and are either positive (conjunct, trine) or challenging (opposing, square).
The closer planets move around our star (the Sun) quickly, and so for instance, Mercury changes signs quickly, and has a lesser effect, albeit still very powerful, on our monthly journeys. The farther planets, like Saturn, are in an astrological sign for a very long time, and can affect us generationally, and therefore, when they change signs, it's a big deal, because it totally transforms a generation, a decade, or even a century's worth of energy.
It feels as though the Earth is at the center of all of this, because that's where we live. But we must remember that we are just another orbiting mass moving around the sun like all the others, and when we feel into that flow, we can move with these ever-changing energies more fluidly.
This is a big month – we are in eclipse season – we had a Lunar eclipse on May 26th and we just moved through a Solar eclipse on June 10th.
Here's a great summary of eclipses and their meanings:
And this is followed by the change in signs and seasons on June 21st at the end of this week!
All of this can and does affect our energy – the energy I've been feeling is needing to rest – so honor that. Listen to your body, spend time in nature to recharge, work on your meditation practice, and let go of what no longer serves you. A solar eclipse will burn off the old, and coming into summer is when we get to celebrate our inner child (school's out!) and be free.
