When strong astro influences come along we can feel like crawling underneath a blanket and never coming out. Lunar Eclipses especially, when they hit your chart, can feel like a pressure cooker of intense emotional energy bubbling up within you, pulsing and expanding until you feel you are about to explode - and you may well have experienced some volatile explosions lately as this eclipse is part of a Grand Fire Trine - not to mention on top of 'don't label me/don't box me/don't restrict me/i need freedom!' Uranus!
These releases can feel relentless and 'too much', but ultimately we are being called to shed so much of what has been covering and clouding our eyes, minds and hearts. We are being called to see ourselves as we really are: free of old wounds and outdated beliefs, and to let go of these wounds and beliefs once and for all. As part of that process, our wounds and beliefs will flare up big time, becoming magnified, for the purpose of us addressing them and clearing them once and for all.
This is happening personally and collectively, globally and politically. Our awakening process is not something you do in your spare time after work, it is 24/7, and it is happening in one way or another to all on this planet at this time. It is playing out as activism, it is playing out as resistance, it is playing out as chaos and violence, it is playing out as greater calls for peace and justice. It is playing out in billions of ways, some difficult and some fabulous, but know that it is happening and that's a good, long-awaited thing.
How are you all feeling?
