In case you missed the memo, August has been emotionally intense and there’s more to come!
To recap this month: Mercury was stationed direct on August 1st, with a shadow of its retrograde just ending, and I don’t know about you, but I’m still fending off all kinds of technical glitches.
August 8th marked the Lion’s Gate, a portal of hefty proportions, which ends on the 12th and connected us to accelerated learning, soul-evolution, and transformation—all to do with the Third Eye Chakra and the star Sirius. Expect integration to last at least another two weeks.
Perseid’s Meteor Shower will have come and gone on the 12th to 13th, somewhat obscured by the light of the rising full moon in Aquarius.
That’s where we’ve been and what we have been influenced by. We come to the full moon hopefully grounded because this moon will be at 22 degrees with Aquarius opposing Sun in Leo, and opposing Venus and Mars, which means relationship shenanigans!
Aquarius values friendship in love as well as independence and loyalty, which is so reminiscent of what Sun in Leo would exact. If you’ve ever loved a Leo or are one, you will recognize those same requirements as nonnegotiable.
Venus, the goddess of Love, rules our values and inner balance, pleasure, attachments to others, our relationship with money, and the harmony that comes from loving the self. As women, we tend to own our Venus, whereas the masculine tends to project their Venus onto their partner. As we’re learning more about what love truly is and what it means to be in harmony with our inner masculine and feminine, relationships find more clarity and growth.
The energy of Mars will, like Leo, bring out our fire, ambitions, and a desire for assertive action. Put it all together, and there is potential for either up-leveling our relationships, or being triggered into the usual arguments that seem to crop up like clockwork during various planetary events.
I see astrology as a map to our consciousness, a magnetic relationship between us and the universe, where the stars, moon, and planets support our awareness of who we are in the context of the rest of nature. Once we are in deeper touch with Self, we can take greater responsibility for our reality. We are not victims of the fate or what is written in the stars, we are co-creators.
Something that’s been coming up lately for my clients and myself is redefining what love means.
Spirit Update: 14.08.19
You are not here to suffer.
You are here to learn through each experience that you draw toward you like medicine for the soul.
If suffering occurs
It is because we place a lot of importance on the feelings that arise with the experience.
What if you observed the emotions as you felt them,
Allowed them room to express what your soul was feeling,
Then released them with each tear, each conscious aha moment provided by that experience
What if we honored the pain but instead of entering into suffering, which is a continually repeated thought/memory of the pain,
And instead, brought in new thoughts, that transformed the pain into wisdom?
When we hang on to suffering, we are causing trauma to ourselves, long past the original trauma.
Who would you be without the suffering or remembered trauma?
Enter the darkness, shine a light on it, see it for what it is, release it with love and gratitude, embrace the wisdom, step into further purpose.
