This week the energies of the Full Moon will see us shifting and integrating many of the darker, shadowy aspects of ourselves. In this period it becomes essential to heighten your awareness around the energies moving within and find ways to integrate them. At this stage of your growth it is crucial that you integrate the shadowy aspects of yourself, thus recognising that they are in fact rejected and wounded aspects of you. With this awareness you will no longer find it necessary to project them onto others.
We are most certainly living through some very volatile times! The impact of the planetary shifts, moon phases, solar flares and more is being felt on a seemingly daily basis. And with these impacts we are being continually faced with numerous healing and awakening opportunities, which are creating for many a time of great inner conflict and chaos.
August finds us constantly entwined with the energies created by the huge planetary line up that began in June 2010. (For more information see Energy Report for June 2010). August may prove, astrologically, to be the most intense time of the whole year and it will be during the first two weeks of August that we shall experience the powerful effects of a planetary configuration that will centre on the Cardinal Grand Cross on the 7th August.
The divine plan for our life only begins to unfold when we heal and release the old patterns and programs which have restricted our soul. It is only with the unfoldment of this plan that our soul’s journey upon this planet is assured.
The start of a new year is always a powerful time of new beginnings and this year is no exception. The incoming energies have been paving the way for tomorrow’s New Moon. This New Moon comes with the first eclipse of the year, a partial Solar Eclipse that will initiate a new cycle of inspiring possibilities.
In this modern world it is easy to forget the connection we have to nature, to drift away from our primal, instinctual self. We live in an age where we are being called to constantly juggle our appointments, commitments, phone calls, emails and text messages.
At last we come to the end of the final Mercury retrograde of 2018! Just in time for the holidays! The retrograde saga, which has been a big theme this year, is almost over! It's not that retrograding planets are necessarily bad, they can just be rather challenging as we are seemingly forced into a space of introspection and delay.
The current cycle of healing and growth is expanding us beyond our previous limitations, beyond what we have previously experienced and into the pure potential of all Creation. Our core energies are being activated which is moving us into greater union with our soul.
