In case you missed it, or you’re not a stalker of the cosmos - this past Friday was a full moon and the longest lunar eclipse in a century.
I follow quite a few astrologists and their celestial forecasts. Oddly, I’m not crazy about astrology reports.
Let me revise that: I’m not crazy about astrology reports unless they are short and to the point.
I want to be debriefed about what I’m going to feel, actions I need to take and maybe a tidbit about planetary happenings.
The thing is, I’ve never been MORE aware of the celestial happenings around me. Living near the ocean brings more awareness of just how powerful Mother Nature really is. I feel it. I feel it in the waves. I feel the ups and downs, the ebb and flow, the calm reflective qualities as well as the wild, unpredictable wrath of emotions.
It is ever changing and different every day, as am I.
Therefore, I’m always seeking out this astrological wisdom to bring me into alignment, to have more insight into my inner hot mess.
I’m sure you can relate:
Why the heck can’t I sit still?
Why, even though I have so much damn energy, cannot I not seem to get anything done?
What am I doing with my life?
Am I even good at anything???
And before I even have a chance to make Mercury’s retrograde a scapegoat for like, everything -
I tell myself what I need to hear:
Let there be space.
Let there be breath.
Listen to your intuition.
Trust your own damn wisdom.
The moon, the stars, the sun, the waves are all working in your favor.
Let there be more breath.
I came to the realization that I haven’t been breathing. My breathing has been shallow and at times I have felt like I’m holding my breath. Funny, just when I thought I wasn’t impacted by this month’s moons, retrogrades, eclipses and such, it all came at me the other day when I did a short meditation. I lay down in the grass and watched the clouds move through a cerulean blue sky and something just opened up and I started breathing again.
Funny how we seem to get in our way at times, we create our own un-alignment, our own shadow of doubt across an otherwise perfect full moon.
P.S. Immediately after writing this I literally started listening to an astrological podcast – and they described the lunar energy and of course it aligned with my ups and downs and all that. I freakin love synchronicities and validation.
And I guess astrological forecasts...maybe a little more than I thought. Oy vey.
