Relentless Releasing

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 We are being called to see ourselves as we really are: free of old wounds and outdated beliefs, and to let go of these wounds and beliefs once and for all.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?

Hello! I've noticed that I'm exhausted and could sleep 16 hours per day! Also, I'm having very vivid, disturbing dreams all through the night. I'm not feeling refreshed at all when I wake up in the morning. I feel like I've been working all night.

Also, how do we know if an eclipse is hitting our chart?

Thank you Dana for your message!

And to Reva3s, I'm feeling you, had an accident last week and I'm feeling drained I've also been sleeping so much lately and having so utterly strange and vivid dreams.

Dear Dana
These dreams have a lot to do with flying all kinds of airplanes, emergency landings on mountaintops that are actually cages, or just "crashing" into deep waters and trying to break free none has ever seen before and don't exist on any map. It seems like the freedom aspect of Uranus really has a toll on me, the flying, the trying to get away, symbols of freedom etc etc

Im exhausted, when will this get any easier? I accidentally was hit by a wooden structure last thursday (100kg heavy) and Im quite petite, and I cannot help but wonder (since I was so careful and the structure was hidden) that it had something to with the astrological aspects.

Any thoughts on this?

Whishing everyone ease on their paths :smitten:

Conversely to what might be expected with the lunar eclipse energies, a recent death in the family, increased stress at work, painting a room only discover I was given semi-gloss and not eggshell finish paint, and doing it over again... I went to the gym, put on my ear buds and cranked up the song Maniac by Michael Sombello as loud as I could stand it and had one of the best workouts of my life and felt amazing calm and composed after and carried on.

I think feeling into the energies and the shift they are rewiring in me helps me get the max out of the craziness, if that makes any sense. I hadn't heard that song in years, loved letting loose into it, and realized I have many gears I can shift in and out of within the range of whatever is normal and still remain balanced.

Relentless Releasing to be sure. I'm feeling more and more empty every is such a strange yet liberating sensation. In particular, I have released the need to convince anyone of about freedom! I can simply live and stand in the truth of who I am knowing that there will be those who resonate with this....and having no attachment or concern about those who do not. FREEDOM!

Thank you Dana!

Hi Reva,

This Lunar Eclipse is at 15degrees Aries, so you want to have your natal chart in front of you and see if you have any personal points (eg Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven/MC, North Node, South Node etc) or planets (Venus, Mars etc) around that degree or aspecting it in some way eg if you have something at 15 degrees Libra it would be in opposition to the Eclipse.

You can get a free chart at

If you're fairly new to interpreting your own chart it's worth having a consultation with an astrologer to get the gist of things.

Hi Emma,

I hope you are okay after getting hit with the wooden structure!!

Yes we are all exhausted, yet clearer, it's a strange feeling. Things keep ramping up for sure - as to 'when' it will all reach critical mass...I wish I knew!

All I know is more and more people are awakening, and there is an energy in the air that I haven't felt ever before in such a tangible way. One day at a time...that's all we can do right now!

Love Dana x

I'm sorry for your loss. Lunar Eclipses are associated with losses, and with letting go on many levels, in many different ways.

Re the paint: sounds like a Mercury Retrograde thing. It's all happening this week! (when isn't it lately though!)

Love Dana

Hi Lauri,

Yes to freedom!

And the emptier we get...the fuller we feel.

Love Dana x
