Holy cow...these energies coming into this eclipse are a little crazy. I've been feeling them and seeing the results since last week, but this morning I realized how potent these energies are.
I woke up from a series of nightmares this morning, which wouldn't bother me that much if it weren't for the fact that I haven't had a nightmare in years.
Both the dreams I had dealt with the fear of not being able to defend myself. In both dreams I was trying to use tools to protect myself, and then I had realized that the threat was inside already.
Dreams are always symbolic.
When I feel threatened or triggered by someone or something, I can learn to see that the real threat lies within and with my own perceptions.
This (full moon, blood moon, blue moon) eclipse is digging up our deepest, darkest fears. Anything hiding in the shadows within your heart will be brought up to be faced. But this is only happening to open you up to your highest potential and power.
A cosmic event such as this one hasn't occurred for over 150 years, so the effects will be felt deeply and will last for a while.
This eclipse is in 11 degrees 27 Leo in the constellation of Cancer. Leo is all about fire power, love and confidence. This fire of Leo will burn through all the illusions and outdated beliefs you have around love and being seen for your authentic self. On the flip side, Cancer is all about emotions, family and the home. How can you break down your innermost fears to welcome the relationship, career or change of your dreams?
In addition, eclipses mark endings as well as new beginnings. They will illuminate the truths we were never able to see before. Expect to have more than a couple "a-ha" moments in the weeks to come.
I believe that this eclipse will allow us to stand firm in what we are passionate about. There is an opportunity to find a new-found confidence in your abilities and dreams. The key is to learn to listen to the soft inner voice within. The key is to listen to your emotions and see what they are trying to tell you.
Do not be surprised if the past is dug up for release. A past love, person or situation could come back around again. Think back to what was going on in your life last August. Last August we experienced the Solar Eclipse in Leo, so any themes around love and self-worth that you were facing then will come back around for a do-over.
And for the record, the sign of Leo never does anything small. Be prepared for a sudden change. You will probably be smacked in the face out of nowhere....and it doesn't have to be something to fear.
I'm seeing that most people will have to move through the initial stages of anxiety and fear once everything starts to change, but if they keep strong, their wishes will be granted.
What's different since last August is that you are different, changed. You can make a new choice. You can choose again from a place of love and authenticity. The truth is that you only need yourself to make it happen. People, places and situations may not have changed, but you have.
You can change everything for the better. All you have to do is stand in your truth.
Take a deep breathe. Meditate. Take some time away from people leading up to the eclipse tomorrow morning. The energies will be intense, especially in North America where the eclipse is visible.
Im seeing that during and after this eclipse both males and females will be pushed more into their feminine energy which is all about feeling and expressing emotions.
The rise of the feminine is indeed happening.
So...what emotions have you been holding in? What words or truth have you not been able to say? What chance have you not been willing to take?
You are powerful and you can find the strength. I believe in you.
Happy Eclipse and may you find the calm within the storm. I'm thinking of you.
