For the week of July 31 - August 6, 2017:
We are officially inside the transformational wormhole eclipse passage. This particular week seems fairly calm and steady, although the aspects are certainly setting the stage and preparing us behind the scenes, connecting some profound dots, leading to the upcoming eclipses on August 7 and August 21. Whether we believe it or not, everything is radically changing…for the better. Everything that’s occurring now is delivering us to our most awakened Self and brand new possibilities. We’re entering the month of August, an “8” vibration of transformation, power, abundance, and the sustainable recycling of infinite energy.
It’s important to remember that chaos precedes transformation, and transformation occurs in a split second, in moments of darkness. The unexpected turbulence shakes us out of our familiar operating system, interrupting the status quo and awakening our blind spots, leaving us highly sensitive and vulnerable to every subtle movement and sound. In this highly activated state, there’s nothing to hold onto, and we’re able to access parts of ourselves that have been hidden, dormant, or suppressed.
When we’re not relying on familiar muscle memory for automatic pilot responses, we begin to reinvent ourselves in a brand new way. In that vulnerable state of redesign, we connect deeply to what matters most, at the heart level. We get crystal clear about the unnecessary distractions that aren’t important or nourishing, and we refine our focus and commitment, unapologetically. In order for transformation to be sustainable, we must be willing to integrate holistically through our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Integrity and congruency matter as we walk our talk and align ourselves with a higher vision, every step of the way. This is how we manifest a whole new world from the inside out.
If healing is to occur on our planet, it’s from each of us standing up as healers, teachers, visionaries, and leaders, in our own authentic way, remembering who we are, why we’re here, and why it matters. When everything around us begins to fall apart, we have no choice but to reach deep within ourselves and call forth the light from within. To spend any amount of time judging, fearing, or worrying about the current reality is a waste of time, energy and valuable resources.
Each of us has powerful light within, and no matter what is occurring, we have the power to choose to give light or to diminish light. There are billions of ways to generate light, through ordinary simple actions. And there are billions of ways to diminish and deplete light. Anytime we honor ourselves, stand in integrity, communicate with clarity and transparency from the heart, and choose Love, we’re generating light. Anytime we’re hiding, second guessing, judging, defending, criticizing, or trying to predict the future from our ego minds, we’re diminishing our light and disconnecting from ourselves and our vital source of energy. The planet is calling forth our light, fully committed, fully plugged in, and standing empowered. That kind of light elevates the vibration of Love, which supports the collective awakening process on the planet.
The week begins on Monday as Venus crosses the World Axis and moves into Cancer. This is a major shift in energy from masculine to feminine, and our hearts step into the realm of emotional power, which feels nurturing, soothing, compassionate, and safe. When are hearts feel deeply loved, we can navigate the unknown from a more peaceful space, which supports our nervous systems, especially our root chakra. We typically hold fear based energy and fight/flight/freeze patterns in our root chakra, however the vibration of Love has the power to discharge that fear and ground the root into a nourishing connection that feels like home.
On Tuesday 8/1, there are no major aspects. We’re stepping into August, shifting to an “8” vibration, and calibrating that powerful energy of transformation into our cells, metabolizing light for fuel. Allow for some recharging and realignment to occur, we’re shifting to a more sustainable fuel source and things are heating up.
Wednesday 8/2, Venus is in a stepping stone with MakeMake, aligning with divine order and the laws of nature. Late that evening, Uranus goes retrograde at 29 Aries. This aspect is HUGE. Not only does this activate a major grand fire manifestation that stretches beyond time and space, connecting the dots between Saturn's retrograde at 29 Sagittarius in April, Mercury's shadow at 28 Leo on the recent new Moon, and the upcoming Solar Eclipse at 28 Leo. It also marks Uranus’ journey back towards Eris and the reactivation of the Light Bridge with Jupiter and Haumea. The Male and Female Awakeners are beginning their journey back towards each other again for another massive catalyst of energy that brings home all the past years' worth of wake up calls into a glaringly obvious neon sign that can’t be avoided. There's no way to pretend to sleep through this. It’s always better to receive the message before things flare up out of control, but make no mistake, we won’t fall back asleep after this one. We’re all awakening, and nobody is left behind. It might be a painful process for some, but we’re all in this together, and we’re already there.
Remember, Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and the upcoming Lunar Eclipse next Monday is at 15 Aquarius, on the World Axis. The fact that Uranus is changing direction just before this event means there's no way to predict or prepare for what's ahead. Similar to getting a chiropractic adjustment to the neck, it's best if you don't see it coming or try to help it along. Let go, and trust the process. Aquarius energy is always way ahead of the curve, bridging the future with the now. We probably won't comprehend what's coming until afterwards, and yet the dots have already been connected and we're already standing on the other side.
On Thursday 8/3, Mercury, Vesta and Orcus conjunct at 8 Virgo, starting a new cycle that will be revisited through Mercury’s retrograde journey. Mercury is the Messenger, Vesta is the flame of devotion from the heart, and Orcus reminds us of the promise we made to resurrect, to come back to life in times of transformation, death, and rebirth. This is an important relationship that communicates crystal clear, now and again revisited, of why it matters that we stay on the planet and fulfill our promise. In intense times of change and transition, we need to be reminded of why it’s worth the discomfort, why it matters to go through the process in the first place. It’s too easy to give up when things get hard, unless we have a devoted and committed messenger in our ear, championing us to remember our vision, and remember who we are.
Friday 8/4 is a Jupiter Pluto stepping stone, an opportunity to expand our consciousness through all that’s occurring in this radical transformation process. Jupiter connects us to a larger social consciousness, and as we find higher ground in our own personal journey, we can easily hold higher ground for the collective experience.
On Saturday 8/5, the Sun and Neptune are in a great eliminator. We make a choice to shine our light on the Truth, not on the drama and the distractions. As we do, we generate enlightenment and diffuse the veils and illusions.
And Sunday 8/6 is a quiet day, as we prepare for the lunar eclipse on Monday 8/7 at 15 Aquarius. The Leo Aquarius polarity is all about awakening humanity, ushering in the new consciousness, and allowing each individual to shine bright like the sun in service to All, globally. Through our individual awakening, we become the Light that awakens others. Once we’re awake, we never fall back asleep. Once we rise up in Love, we elevate the vibration of energy on our planet and change the game completely. We are each the torch bearers of one brilliant spark of light, contributing to a massive global shift in consciousness, inventing a new sustainable resource for our planet’s resurrection.
The practice for this week is a mirror gaze meditation. Take 10 minutes a day to connect with your own reflection. Be in relationship with yourself, tune into your higher communication, and give your undivided attention and unconditional love to the reflection before you. Practice letting go of judgment, fear, or doubt, and allow all aspects of yourself to be seen and revealed as you soften your gaze and embrace all that you see. Notice any limiting beliefs, resistance, or doubt, and allow your truth to communicate clearly to you. As we release our fears of being seen, we liberate our light to expand and flourish powerfully in contribution to All.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”― Marianne Williamson
