The The New Moon and Solar eclipse takes place Aug. 21, 2017 at 28 degrees and 53 minutes of Leo and during an intense Mercury retrograde. This retrograde has been full of resistance. Everything feels irritable, confusing or just not working. But now is your chance to work on new beginnings and manifesting. Not just because of the New Moon but because of this powerful eclipse.
In my reading for the Full moon and solar eclipse earlier this month, this same idea was coming through. It was said that: “there is a portal, a major opening for more intuitive thoughts & creation happening. A cosmic door of creation. Follow the direction of your heart, not your fears – and you will see its power.” And again 2 of the 3 that came up during that time, have come up again! One of them being that we must give up our old ideas, our old thinking and the wounds which are not serving us. They have run their course, and they are now just a liability - blocking you from moving forward. Who you were 10 years ago, 1 year ago, a month ago – is no longer serving you.
There is so much resistance in the collective right now.
This resistance just continues to build and build. Resistance to what is, and to who we are – just blocks us from having intuitive insights, imagination, and it makes us unable to manifest our truest desires.
The 1st card is again, reminding us that we must release in order to receive.
The 2nd and 3rd cards are wonderful confirmations that if we can drop the resistance, accept what is and move with the flow of non-resistance – then we can harness this powerful energy to manifest joy, happiness, and purpose.
“Never Ending Story” – Self-criticism; the wounded ego; unnecessary drama”
There is a story woven through the imperfect fabric of life that tells of hurts, loss, rejection and humiliation, self-loathing and arrogance. and all manner of suffering born of unnecessary dramas. It is the old story of refrain that says you cannot do this, must not go there, should not say that and if you do, your world will come crumbling down. Know that none of this is actually true. That voice you hear is just a small, scared conditioned part of you trying to protect you, but based on fear and wounds. Love that piece of you. It’s distorted guidance is preventing you from being true to yourself. You are NOT your story, and the narrator is simply the voice of fear. This fear, procrastination, greed and the perception of victimhood could all be active in your life right now. Love yourself through this, but don’t let this irrational and wounded part of you guide you. Your sensitivity is overloaded these days, this is a time to avoid drama especially when it comes to other peoples “stuff”. It will best serve you to keep your distance from anything that will take you more into self-criticism and the like. It’s time to finally release these old wounds and imagine the life you’ve always dreamed.
“Imagine – Turning imagination into manifestations; creative thought; visualization; the power of aligning imagery and feelings; creativity”
Who do you want to be? What do you need to believe in order to have the life you want? You were gifted with the power to imagine. If you can dream it, you can create it.Allow your creativity to deliver messages to you that feed your soul. Allow these feelings to mingle with your inspirations. Create vision boards, practice with visualization meditations. Bring what you desire to you! This is a powerful time to get clear on how you create your prosperity, what it means to you to be prosperous and what attributes you need to develop in yourself to make things happen. Act as if your dreams really will come true, and get ready for prosperity!
“New Life – Birth of new ideas: growth; opportunities; a breath of fresh air; life renewing itself.
This is a magical time. One of those times in your life when new ideas inspire you and new opportunities bring you hope for seeing your dreams come true. Allow your heart to fill with enthusiasm. Let your light shine, for this is a time of good fortune.You must acknowledge your inexperience and gently allow yourself to be teachable. You are at the beginning of something new, don’t try to rush the process. New life has its own timetable.
It’s time now to practice. Practice changing your thinking from the anxiety filled “it’s not going to work” to the “what could I do if I didn’t resist.” How can I work daily on finding the beauty in the world.” What can I do today to focus on what I do want, instead of what I don’t.
Allow this new moon energy to release from you the strong hold of ideas you have for your life, your path and your purpose then allow new and better divine ideas and inspirations to guide you.
Much love and gratitude to you..
