Welcome to July, Friends!
July 2nd brings us a total solar eclipse during the New Moon in the Water sign of Cancer. A new moon signifies new beginnings and is a great time for new fresh starts. This July new moon allows for change, it's unavoidable! We can see our lives and situations in a new light right now, with more clarity and optimism... today is also a powerful solar eclipse. The sun being eclipsed by the moon means that we have access to seeing our shadow side today. If we are gentle with ourselves and can observe our inner voices and work through challenges, this is a powerful time to BE the light in the dark.
So, Inspired yet? What is needed for you to LIVE your biggest dream?
I invite you to join me in seeking more clarity for laying out the future path, because the energy will now grow for the next two and a half weeks, until the full moon. Full moons have magical manifesting energy to set these new goals and energy into motion! For today, I’m writing down the steps to reach my vision with today’s clarity, and over the next two weeks, I will step down the well-crafted trail in fullest creative mode.
It’s a social time, as this new moon creates a newness and fresh curiosity for being with others. Today, the trick might be socializing without triggers. This can be hard because Cancer is so emotional, and the sun and moon are both in Cancer today! If we do find ourselves set off by something, It’s important to identify what those triggers are, and be gentle with everyone.
We are traveling, and I had a strong emotional reaction while visiting my parents two nights ago. It was reactive and difficult. That night and next day I asked the universe for insight, and then we saw a fawn hop across our path. Deer medicine is about Gentleness, with self and other. With the solar eclipse today, we can use this time to see into the darkness and the fears that may be creating obstacles for us in reaching happiness. It’s a good time to see past patterns and resolve them by treating ourselves the way we would treat a good friend who has been hurt in some way. Kind. Gentle. I have my selenite crystal in my pocket, for receiving positive energies and letting the rest go on by.
Feelings right now can be intense, with both the sun and moon in Cancer, so taking downtime and time for self-care are super important! This helps us better practice emotional sobriety. Understand what is ours, and what is not and don't take on extra stuff. This feeling that is created by treating ourselves like a good friend, can be liberating, and creates a better space for us to be open and receptive to positive people and happenings in life!
This is such a powerful visioning time, for mental clarity, I am using Balance and Frankincense. I also love to powerfully vision through meditations with the focus blend, InTune, and Align (from the yoga collection).
Step into your highest good, friends! It’s time. And you are supported, in reaching whatever goals you set out to live your dream! This is the time! As Nike says, Just Do It.
The Universe thanks you.
For in reaching out and living your highest intention, you give others permission to do the same.
