The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse serves as an emotional release. It's a shift in perspective, and a time to face our challenges in a brand new way. While this Eclipse is accompanied by several retrogrades, it means a lot of this work is internal right now. Mars Retrograde has us swimming in the collective air waves of Aquarius, naming & working with the fears, conditioning, and harmful narratives that keep us from growing into who we want to become. It's a time to shed what we've outgrown, and step more fully into who we are now, and who we are becoming. Uranus in Taurus points to the area in your chart that wants change. Yet, this comes up against the subconscious emotions that rear their heads during Eclipse Season. The Sun & N. Node in Leo suggests that we must love ourselves through our transformative processes. Maybe you need deep rest, to unplug, or a personal recharge- something that will serve your spirit.
The Eclipse asks each of us to seek and use our unique creative power in relationship to collective narratives. What old stories and coping skills no longer serve you? Old habits may die hard, but the Lunar Eclipse is a great time to break them. It's also a good practice to recognize how far you've come, how many layers you've already worked through and healed. Offer up your fears for the Moon to hold, and for the Sun to devour- you may want to write a list and burn it under this Full Moon. The Sun in Leo is a defender of the heart. With Mercury Retrograde in Leo now, too, we can listen and learn how to become better versions of ourselves. We contain multitudes- pain & joy, beauty & sorrow. None of us are perfect, but since all of us are individual contributors to an ever-changing interconnected society- we owe it to each other to do our best. Confidence stems from authenticity, trusting yourself and your limits, knowing your strengths, and admitting where you still have room to grow. Listen to what your heart is needing right now and trust that the rest will follow.
