Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius + Mercury Retrograde

This Friday, July 27th 2018 at 10.20 pm PT, we will experience the longest Lunar Eclipse of the 21st century (1 hr 43 min long!) with a beautiful blood moon in Aquarius (in the sign of the new age!)

This is the second eclipse of the month with the partial solar eclipse in Cancer on Friday, the 13th, having started this emotional and inspiring moon cycle about two weeks ago.

 

Friday’s Full Moon will be in Aquarius - an energy of friendship, community, rebellion, ideals and innovation. 

 

As a fixed Air sign, I like to see Aquarius as the Storm. Structures that no longer serve us will be broken down to make place for the new. Authenticity is Aquarius’ number 1 priority and is emphasized during these next six months.

 

With the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius, we are asked to reflect on the special-ness (Leo) of each person in the community (Aquarius). Leo is ruled by the Sun, supporting us to see ourselves as the main character, the star in our game of life, while the Moon in Aquarius makes us aware of others who are stars as well. 

 

During day time, we only see one star, the Sun. The Sun stands for our individuality, creative self-expression and self-realization. It is important to embrace the gifts we have and celebrate ourselves. 

During night time, we realize that the sun is not the only star in the sky, but there are billions upon billions of more stars. The sun doesn’t care about the opinion of the other stars. It doesn’t stop shining because it’s not the brightest star. It takes care of its own solar system and plays its part in a galaxy consisting of billions of other solar systems, within a galaxy cluster of billions of galaxy clusters within the universe (one song). The sun is shining its light to the best of its ability, while acknowledging the other stars in the sky and letting their light shine as well.

 

This is the message of this Lunar Eclipse:

 

Shine and let shine. 

 

And if other stars shine on a different vibration then you don’t need to focus on them anymore. Change your focus and shine your light onto the people, things, emotions and thoughts in your life that bring you joy or that you find important, that fuel your fire or desire for life.

 

Know that not only you benefit from expressing and celebrating yourself but also others. By embracing your gifts you inspire others to embrace theirs. 

 

Notice the divine in each one of us. If energies like competition, jealousy, arrogance, comparison, and fear of being special, come into your life, focus on the bigger picture - we are all stars within an infinite universe. We’re all in the same boat.

 

You are special. I am special. We are special. 

 

Some stars shine brighter than others and that’s ok. That doesn’t make them more special, they just may have shed more layers so that their light can shine through brighter. Let them inspire you. 

 

Embrace who you are while cheering for others to shine their lights the way they choose to. 

 

We are all co-creators in this game of life. 

 

So let’s have fun with it. And lighten up on the path of enlightenment. ;-)

 

 

Additionally, to this Lunar Eclipse,  Mercury will be starting its retrograde journey on the 26th of July through the sign of Leo. 

 

Throughout retrograde periods, we are asked to reflect on how we have used that sign’s energy in our life. With Mercury in Leo, we are meant to re-think our way of shining our light. 

 

Are we taking light from others (fishing for energy/attention/compliments) or are we dimming our lights out of fear of embracing our gifts and special-ness? 

As a society as a whole, we are meant to ask ourselves who and what are we celebrating? 

Looking at our celebrities, we tend to mostly focus on athletes, actors, artists, politicians... But what about the ones who invent, research, create new structures who are working in the background? The ones who help and stand up for others in the face of adversity? Is there a need to change who we celebrate, who we shine our light upon? Are there things in the dark that are meant to be lit up and spread awareness about to bring about change?  

 

These next weeks until the end of August, let things fall away that want to, embrace the unexpected, face those fears and make space for fresh energies. After the partial solar eclipse on August 11th, Mercury will go direct again on August 19th, calming down these cosmic energies of rebirth. 

 

Let yourself be reborn.

We are moving into the age of Aquarius with flying colors!
