Eclipses are times of deep mystery. Mystery and magic penetrate through the thinning veils during this dark moon, revealing profound meaning of who we are.
“A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow.
As the Moon is partially sitting in Earth’s shaddow (ie. unable to reflect the I AM Light of the Sun), a window opens and we are drawn into ourselves, the part that we don’t show to the world, the emotional and deepest part of our psyche.”
“The word ECLIPSE comes from the Greek word “ekleipsis” meaning “to abandon, to leave, to vanish” – and thats exactly what we may experience during a Lunar Eclipse – the desire to surrender and let go of parts of our self that limit our greater potential.”
“The energy of our August 2017 FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE is an extension of our February 2017 Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse. As we now come into our August 2017 Lunar Eclipse (followed by our Solar Eclipse on the 21/22 August 2017) , it is time to reflect on the themes of what was coming up for you in February 2017 and finally, gracefully and with FULL HEART let go, surrender and take that step into the soft yet powerful expanse of your HEART. It is TIME to LOVE the cracks and let go of the boundaries that limit your experience of infinite LOVE.”
As unsetteling as it might be sometimes, the emotions you’ve been working through are hinting to where the emotional freedom has to happen. It is time to own the parts of ourselves we’ve let slip into darkness, because of denial, fear or shame.
All issues regarding clear communication with relationships has been the biggest theme so far. Although this eclipse is signaling the medicine of grace and peace, some of us that are directly aspected by this eclipse, might feel the chaos needed to break down all the illusive contracts in order to get THERE. There might be a lot of confusion in the air, directing us all over the place, but we must constantly remember to detach and witness the big picture. It helps to understand the archetypes in play, and how it literally manifests itself into all of us.
ECLIPSES REVERBERATE THROUGH TIME.
They connect us to the past and future in deep, encompassing ways. Whatever we’re currently dealing with has its origins long before this moment and will have consequences for months in the future. Eclipses are not isolated events, but a long process of change and reversal of circumstances.
“RELATIONSHIPS are the BIG THEME for our Aquarian Lunar Eclipse – ALL our RELATIONSHIPS such as friends, family, lovers, community and our societal systems (such as our relationship to/with Governments, Business leaders etc). And of course the most important relationship, your relationship with SELF. I invite you to deeply reflect during our full moon lunar eclipse on ALL RELATIONSHIPS in your life and your feelings/thoughts/emotions behind that energy given/received within your relationships. And then does this energy exchange seek to empower through LOVE & KINDNESS or does is foster pain, hurt & separation through fear ?”
“Are you caught in the divisive anger/separation currently being felt within the world or are you holding a greater vision of what you know is possible through your heart ? Where in YOU can you identify anger, hurt, fear, separation in your relationships…. and most importantly what can YOU do this Lunar Eclipse to change the narrative within… which ultimately changes the story of our world ?”
“This Lunar Eclipse will be a GET REAL moment and a REVOLUTIONARY step into a deeper place within your Heart regarding all RELATIONSHIPS. The world needs you at this time to hold a greater vision and through kindness, compassion and reverence for one another come together in heart-space to be the change. What will it take for YOU to step up and be this change?”
“AQUARIUS is an innovator, a pioneer, a humanitarian ray of LOVE that seeks to find new opportunities for expansion. Thus during this full moon + lunar eclipse combo let go of the need to follow what ‘other people do’, what society may tell you is the ‘right way’ and what family or loved ones ‘expect you to do’. Simply trust in yourself, believe that the LIGHT in your HEART guides you to experience the greatest joy and that your unique way of seeing and being in this world is the birth place of miracles and a life well lived.”
“Our August 7/8 Eclipse opens a window leading into our August 21/22 TOTAL ECLIPSE in Leo and the energy will be felt right up to Eclipse season that starts again in late January 2018.”
“Just a kind & loving reminder, eclipses have a way of bringing about change/release in your life for your greater good. So you have the choice of surrendering and doing the release work consciously or you can choose to rebel against the eclipse energy kicking & screaming as the universe intervenes and makes the changes for you.”
