Shaken Not Stirred: Coming Out of the Eclipses

SHAKEN NOT STIRRED: Even though the recent Solar and Lunar Eclipses were only 2 days in the calendar, we are still within the effect period.

Eclipses can have a direct impact on your life in the 2 weeks - and in some cases 1 month - prior to occurring, and after occurrence. It's kind of like when a wave comes rushing in from the ocean. Yes there is the moment of crashing onto the shore, but just as relevant is the lead up as the wave builds, and then the gravitational pull as the tide captures everything in its way and draws it into the ocean.

So over the last month you may have had some big things happen, be they external changes or inner shifts, or breakdowns or breakthroughs. A lot of people are going through major identity crises/transformations, and feeling a need to overhaul their life in some way.

Now, generally speaking, this is a natural result of the overall evolutionary process we are in right now. Old ways of being are dismantling, and new parts of ourselves are emerging, just like a snake shedding its skin and wriggling out as a new version of itself. But then astrological alignments come along, like an eclipse season, and essentially speed things up, clarifying and crystallizing things, making you highly aware that situation xyz can't go on any longer, or that dream abc needs to get moving forward.

Confusion can also reign, because as one thing, relationship, job or part of your identity is being washed out, the new thing/relationship/job/identity doesn't usually arrive the next day! So lots of us are going through void periods where there is a sense of who the hell am I anymore, and where am I going, and what do I want to be doing, and do I even resonate with this thing or that thing anymore?

During void times, it is usually wise not to make any sudden decisions. Void times are a time to reflect, rest, take a step back, do things to help you get clear and centred (meditation, journalling, going for a walk, going to the beach, get off the topic and go do something fun), and from that space allow your next steps to come to you.

The New Moon in Aries next Thursday marks a new period, so if you are still feeling like you are in the eclipse's washing machine spin and rinse process, things should feel lighter or clearer from then.

How are you all feeling?

OMG, This has been a crazy time. Lots and lots of fear surfacing. I've even said to myself, that I'm not making any decisions during this time and keeping things on a low keel. Thank you Dana for your post, and confirmation. I've been out of work for the past 4 years taking care of me and now I feel ready to have a new career. What I think I want to do, I'm not sure anymore. I was certain at one point. Not so much now. The last week or so I've been putting out to the universe "What's My Life Purpose"? I received nothing so far. I did ask in my meditation a month ago, Am I to be a healer and the response I got, was, "I was not available". Waiting for the dust to settle to get some clarity!!
Thank you for your post :)

This was very precise, especially about the suddenly changes and breakdowns leading to confusion

All true observations. Feeling some of this myself.

Isn't great we've learned to "always drink upstream from the herd"?

Thank You, Dana.

Always wonderful to hear from you.

I feel as though I am in a holding pattern. Some days I get incredible clarity, my vibration soars, then the very next day I feel lost.

Some days the connection with Spirit is so alive within me, I feel as though I am the luckiest person on the planet. The synchronicity is everywhere, I feel the love, abundance, the peace. I have, what feels like a massive epiphany. It is WONDERFUL. And like that wave that retreats back into the sea, so does the experience of the epiphany.

And yet, I am resolute in my intentions to move forward. When I ask for clarity, it comes immediately. When I ask for help, it also comes immediately. The void in between is most unsettling though.

Much Love, Light and Inner Peace to All. : )

:o I have been wobbly and dizzy and just out of sorts for the entire month of March. What I thought were "panic attacks" seem to be other peoples energy and I just can't seem to be around very many people these days. As soon as someone starts complaining or speaking negatively I start to spin and feel like I am going to pass out. I just feel extremely sensitive these days.
Thank you for your writings Dana.

Nik, Thanks for your contribution of music. A good way for me to come out of the discombobulating energies of the eclipse!
