But wait...there's more!!! Not only are we experiencing the effects of the eclipse but the planet Mercury has gone retrograde which means we are also feeling the influences of Mercury when it is retrograde.
Some of the common themes that are coming up for many are:
- Masks being taken off
- Hidden agendas are revealed
- A surge of anger coming to the surface
- Experiencing crazy dreams
- The need to separate oneself from drama
- Our own shadow side is front and center
- Other people's shadow side is front and center
- Creativity is at an all-time high
- Communication is wonky on both parts
- Electronics are going haywire
- Accident incidents are increased
All that is coming to the surface is to help you align yourself with the path, people and opportunities that are for your highest and best good. Eclipses are catalysts for change and they pack quite an energetic punch. They get the ball rolling for us and the worst thing we can do for ourselves is to resist and try to go against the cosmic flow.
There are some sweet benefits that come with the energies of the eclipse as well and I would highly suggest everyone take advantage of them.
- Plant those giant seeds, not just the small ones but the ginormous seeds that you have been a little leery of planting. This is big energy so it's either you go big or go home! I am going big during this time!
- Dedicate more time and energy to your spiritual practice. Meditation, journaling, read books and or spend time with like-minded-conscious people.
- Carry paired crystals such as moonstone and citrine or selenite and fire agate to embrace and enhance the solar and lunar aspects of the current energies that are influencing us. I would carry the moonstone and selenite on the left side for the lunar aspects and citrine and fire agate on the right side for the solar aspects. You can also create crystal grids with these crystals magnifying your intentions.
- Pay attention to the signs that spirit will be planting all around you. These signs may come in the form of animals, number sequences, songs on the radio or even through your dreams. Write down these signs in your journal. They will have meaning for you within the next few months.
Most importantly, try to not go into the place of fear or worry as things get stirred up for you. Remember all that occurs is for your benefit as a growing and evolving beautiful soul who is here to learn, share, grow and embrace the uniqueness of who you are.
Blessings and Light,
