The Great American Eclipse August 21st

Much as been written about the Solar Eclipse on Monday the 21st.

And, indeed, it really is a BIG DEAL! It is the first visible one in the US in 99 years and its aspects are powerful!!

Solar Eclipses are Super Powerful New Moons, signaling a time of endings and beginnings! And…as a point of interest…. they occur close to the same degree every 19 years. So, where were you on  August 21,1998? Can you remember what were you doing then? What was important to you? A great question to ponder now is  “What’s Next? How can we up-level our souls growth?

 

This total Eclipse will be visible in 12 states across the US….starting in Oregon! Significant world events tend to occur on or near the eclipse path. Here is a state by state viewing guide http://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/tripideas/a-state-by-state-eclipse-viewing-guide/ss-AApPwDe?li=BBnb7Kz

This Solar Eclipse in Leo calls forth our Leadership, Creativity, Courage and Passion. It is a rare, second consecutive New Moon  in the sign of Leo, so these are the qualities that are emphasized and energized!

During an Eclipse, the Moons shadow blocks the light of the Sun….resetting consciousness and opening doors to new realities!!

Unexpected events occur….it is like a  big chiropractic adjustment for our Planet bringing us back into alignment, while revealing what must change!

Several planetary factors are energizing this eclipse. The Lunar North Node in Leo designates our Spiritual Frontier—–in this case, the embodiment of heart-centered consciousness. It spotlights the need to align our head with our heart, so that we feel our inner-connectedness with all life, creating and being in our world from a place of love instead of fear! The South Node in Aquarius is asking us to take our humanitarian  ideals to the street and “Be the Change we Wish to See”! (Gandhi)

Mars in Leo is also conjunct this Eclipse, amplifying the cosmic directive to act From, For and With Love. Mars sparks our passion, pride, and willingness to take a risk, while Saturn’s close trine to Mars counsels us to be aware of rashness and selfishness! We accomplish far more through thoughtful planning and mutual respect!

Uranus infuses its progressive energy by asking us to experiment and explore new ways of expressing our gifts. We need  innovation, and “outside the box thinking” to solve the many situations and problems we face as a world….. from technology, to climate change, resource exploitation,to the air we breathe. We are on the brink….or, tipping point!

We CAN change the direction! This eclipse offers help from the Heavens. It takes Courage to walk away from what we know is not right, Kindness and Compassion to lend a helping hand to someone in need, Creativity to solve problems, and Heart-Centered Leadership to Lead away from hate, fear, bigotry, and into heart centered win-win solutions for all!

Everything we do Matters! Everyone Counts!

We are determining our future and the future of our life on this beautiful planet by our thoughts, words, and deeds!

Best practice for this  Eclipse….take time to be in nature, meditate, speak a word of prayer yourself, family and our planet. Watch for important insights, and LISTEN to instructions from your Higher Self, especially around the exact time of the eclipse,11:30 AM PDT!

In the following weeks, planets transiting the eclipse degree will offer additional downloads and activation. And, pay special attention to your dreams, info will be coming at you in many ways!

Dates of reactivation…September 5th, Mercury stations direct at 28 Leo,and stays close to that degree for about a week.

Venus crosses 29 Leo on September 18th, and 3 months later, the Sun squares the Eclipse point on November 20th!

We are Spiritual Warriors for the Heart!

“Make your Life a Work of HEART!” ( Steve Bhaerman)

Join us for a gathering on Monday evening at the AURA Shop on Main Street Santa Monica from 7pm to 9pm. We will be doing a beautiful meditation, crystal bowl sound bath, and astro overview. It is a new beginning, a reset point!! If you can’t join us live, please take the time to do your own ceremony! The exact time, 11:30 AM Pacific. I recommend a silent meditation, as it is so important to LISTEN to your Higher Self and Receive downloads and information! Make your time special and  sacred! It is a gift from the Cosmos, enjoy it!

Stay Inspired…..Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse August 7th

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

August 7th

11:11 AM PDT

Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. The Sun is currently in Leo/ with the Moon in Aquarius! This axis highlights the relationship between the Individual and the Collective!

Full Moons seek to balance and and blend the qualities of the two energies involved! And, when an Eclipse is involved, the energy is more intense, emotional, and impassioned!

Aquarius rules the global family; humanitarianism, community, friends, the groups we participate in, and what brings a sense of joy and purpose!

Leo brings our creative self-expression, passion, desires and leadership to the forefront! This strong Leo-Aquarian  Full Moon Eclipse can help us (personally and as a society)  find creative solutions to issues, challenges and problems. This also applies to looking at what fuels our dreams/passions and activates the vision our Soul has for this lifetime!

This Lunar Eclipse brings with it several energetic and potent  planetary aspects! There will be an ending  or completion from past events, friends, or groups. This ending/completion  allows an opening or space for a new direction or beginning. We are called to move toward what lights us up instead of what we think we “should” be doing to fit in or be accepted by others!

A few guide lines…..

  • Expect the unexpected!
  • Stay focused, grounded,  and centered as best you can ( the energy may feel a bit disconnected and spacey)
  • Work to stay present and in your Heart! Remember, we are Spiritual Warriors of the Heart! Resist detaching from the flow and love.
  • Listen  to that inner voice urging to break free! Time to follow your hearts desire! Take time to be in nature!

Possibilities!

  • This Full Moon Eclipse can bring strength and confidence to embark on new paths.
  • It will bring clarity on how to shine your light in the world!
  • You may be drawn to a new group that you feel immediately connected to!
  • You may get clear on a goal…and reach higher and further for what you truly desire!

And a few questions to consider:

  • Do I really know what it is I truly want and dream for? (This is a good time to re-envision what that might be for this particular stage of your life!)
  • Do I allow my individual uniqueness to shine, especially in a group setting?
  • How can I  creativity  think outside the box to solve an on-going problem?

Use this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse to find your courage, determination, enthusiasm and clarity to embark on a new path that leads to a life that is more fulfilling, joyful and aligned with your Souls purpose!!

This Eclipse is an opening to free our minds, to break through and see beyond the old perceptions that have limited our potential and kept us on the sidelines instead of shinning our light!

 

Time to shed the old in order for the new you to emerge!

Join us for a live Full Moon Eclipse  event on Sunday August 6th at Mothers Beach in Marina del Rey!

This is a special gathering to be with our tribe and align with this powerful Eclipse energy

August Overview….Eclipse Month!!!

Happy Birthday Leo!

This month is set to be the most dynamic and  pivotal of the year! It has been a tension filled few months….all  leading up to this month of change! Eclipses bring sudden, unexpected, and sometimes dramatic news! So, buckle in, this month the Cosmos is going to be very busy helping us all make adjustments and changes in our personal and global world!  Everyone will be effected in some way because we all have Aquarius and Leo in our charts, but those of us who have the Sun, Moon, or Ascendent in these signs will be effected more energetically!

And, for sure…..this is a month of change!

Best practice, plan extra time, try to relax each day, meditate, and stay grounded!

 DO NOT MAKE ANY FINAL DECISIONS until the middle of September…. there are many moving parts all month!

The most challenging part of the month is the UNEXPECTED element. We all dislike surprises, so please, stay calm, and just allow the month to unfold, all will begin to make sense in September!

Below is a recap of the aspects day by day. I suggested you mark your calendars, so you are prepared. And most importantly, this moth is all about the Leo energy….  Love, Creative Self Expression, Courage, and finding your personal Superpower!

Think of this month as a Journey of the Heart! In each situation ask “What would LOVE do?

Remember, there has never been, nor will there ever be, anyone else who commands your singular array of talents, strengths and experiences! Your mission this month is to be true to your yourself! Be guided by the wisdom of your HEART rather than your family or culture around you! YOU are the creator! Your thoughts, words, and deeds shape your reality and the course of your world! The Solar Eclipse in Leo urges us to step into our heart directed lion power! It takes courage to be an original rather than a copy. It take strength to risk ridicule and rejection. We are on our own personal hero/heroine’s journey to discover and express our true identity!

So remember, on this journey we must have the Courage to move thru our fears of the unknown as we leave what is familiar! Along the way we encounter mentors who guide us and villains who test our resolve. We are forced to face our worst fears, and in doing so, we are transformed and empowered!

August is about aligning with our higher self, and our divine destiny!

Remember, all the cosmic dynamics are here to assist  us in bring our gifts and talents to the world in a way that

best expresses love!

The Leo line up this month is here to awaken us to live in and  embody HEART-CENTERED consciousness!

Now is the time, our world desperately needs our unique, creative expression, leadership, heart and LOVE!

Here are the dates to mark and a short recap of the energetic influence!

August 2nd…Uranus stations Retrograde at 28* Aries thru 1.2.18

The Rebel, Eccentric, Freedom planet  as it stations retrograde will cause chaos the first few days of the month!  We are being asked to look at our own personal freedom! Insights and idea come from out of the blue, so have a notebook handy and jot down all info you receive. Highly recommended….plan extra time and don’t rush, stay in a calm state!

 August 4…Jupiter squares Pluto at 17 * Capricorn

The planet of expansion challenges the planet of power and change. Again, this is is about change…in a big way! Best practice, work to create a win win for all involved in your disagreements and negotiations!

August 7th…Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius /Leo 15*

Themes  of what is best for our world vs. how you can bring your unique talent to  change it for the better! This is a super powerful full moon lunar eclipse. Emotions will be intense! Some element of your life that is not working will end….making way for a new beginning!

Please join us for a live ceremony at Mothers Beach on Sunday the  6th at 7:30 PM.

Please RSVP…details on the Full Moon page and sign up under the events page!

August 12 …Mercury stations retrograde at 11* Virgo thru September 5th

Remember, Mercury has us rethink, review, relax, and renew. Best practice….do  not make any final decision on the information and insights you are receiving. Keeping a journal to jot down ideas will be helpful when the dust settles in September and directions finally become clear again!

August 21…Powerful Dynamic New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo @ 28*

This is the second New Moon in Leo….very rare….so a new beginning is definite!!! If your birthday is within a week of this date, your life absolutely will take you in a New Direction of the Heart!!  I will be posting more details shortly on the New Moon page!

August 25th….Saturn station direct @ 21 Sagittarius

Work projects that have been stalled start to move forward! I advise waiting till after the 5th of September before you are full speed ahead….Mercury will bring a few more insights to empower you!!

 

This is the most dynamic, energetic month of the year! It is NOT BAD! So please don’t read this and freak out!!!!!

The Cosmos is shaking us up a bit….to get us on the right soul path!

Is your heart open?

Where do you need to be more courageous?

Where are you Shinning in your life?

What is your Passion…are you living it?

swa moon logoA  side note…..New Moons occur every 29 ½ days when the moon align with the sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of New Beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating.  New moons are about starting anew….hitting the reset button!

 

 

So…..be clear, set your intentions around the natural qualities of Leo, and  Dream BIG, Plan Big, Play Big and Intend BIG!

Full Moon in Capricorn/ Cancer July 9th

 

This is a super powerful, highly emotional Full Moon!

The Moon is conjunct Pluto…..illuminating what is buried  to be released! Deep, dark feelings we have  hidden and not wanted to deal with will probably come to the surface. We are in the middle of a revolution/evolution, and Pluto in Capricorn IS, HAS,and WILL continue to breakdown our social structures and systems, both on the national scene, and in our personal life! The old order is dying, and the new paradigm  is trying to emerge…. all we need to do is to look at the political world scene and our feelings of safety, security, power, lack of it are felt personally!This can be a scary time, so facing our fears, releasing them and having love and compassion for ourselves and others is the Best Practice!

Opposite this Moon/ Pluto aspect  is the Sun conjunct Mars, both in Cancer. Our emotional fears, anger, family  issues ,control and power struggles, are highlighted!

This opposition is forming  squares to both Jupiter in Libra, and Uranus in Aries…. making everything seam bigger than life, and feeling like we just want to break free!!! This  loose grand cross  in Cardinal signs is asking us to make decisions. This is a crossroads moment in time.  We are face to face with what needs to be changed and released! Time to let go of what is old stagnant, corrupt, and diseased, so that new life and directions can be born!!!

Here is a great quote ….particularity for this weekend….”Everyone and everything around you is your teacher” So as weekend unfolds with highly charged feelings, what can you learn? How can you act with love and compassion in the midst of chaos? Taking responsibility for our feelings is the key to navigating this energy. Ground yourself in your Truth, allow others to have their opinions, look for a mature and open hearted resolution. Be a Spiritual warrior for truth and justice for you, your family, and for the world stage! We need YOUR LIGHT!

Take time to go out under the power of this Moonlight, and let all your frustrations go! Write them down,release them to the moon, howl it out, and bless all those challenges for  the many lessons learned,and just surrender to change!! Crystals to use tonight….Moonstone, black onyx or obsidian, rose quartz, and carnelian!

 Stay

Inspired….Connected…..Empowered

Peace and Blessings
