Happy Independence Day America!
The Sun is in Cancer and the Moon moves from Pisces to Aries today. The moon is also sextile Pluto and Chiron moves retrograde.
As you know we are in retrograde season and headed into eclipse season; so what does that mean? Retrogrades allow us to review and refine. Currently there are 5 planets retrograde and Chiron; the asteroid/comet known as the “Wounded Healer”, moves retrograde in the sign of Aries today – joining Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto in giving us a second look at how we live our lives. That means the next 12 weeks are a divine opportunity to learn lessons quickly as you integrate the new levels of light that poured in through the solstice gateway.
Mercury and Venus are both in Leo as the moon moves into a fiery Aries. Normally, having Mercury and Venus in Leo with the moon in Aries would create some pretty grand and elaborate happenings – but with Mars (rule of Aries) retrograde and Aquarius – the fireworks will be felt internally today. Consider today part of a transition period as we move into a highly charged eclipse season- the calm before the proverbial storm if you will.
This coinciding retrograde/eclipse season is designed to position us perfectly to dissolve or fears and champion our own dreams. All of us in someway have been living in a fantastical concept of our life – while internally waiting for the “real/better” version of our lives to begin. The universe wants us to remember we are the absolute creator of our reality and that any resistance to this truth really is futile. Don’t be surprised as your most hidden fears and phobias come to light. All frequencies that are of a lower density and vibration are intentionally being driven up so we can stand and with compassion, embrace ourselves as the creators of them all and allow them to transmute into Love, integrating the lessons, and calling our power back to ourselves from all the places we’ve given it away.
Use the feisty Aries moon energy to accomplish any important task before the partial solar eclipse on July 12. After that, Mercury will join the other planets in retrograde motion starting July 25 just in time for us to have a very powerful total lunar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius on July 27th.
This is a great time to use black tourmaline as well as flourite and frankincense to support your integration and sense of ease during this transition into higher levels of being.
Remember, this is a time to review and refine, not to fix! Allow yourself to rest when you need to, listen to your body, stay hydrated, and above all trust yourself
