We've got SO MUCH to experience in July! Three main events are the Solar Eclipse on July 2nd (which this post and broadcast are about) as well as a Lunar Eclipse and New Moon on Leo. Let's focus on the energies of the moment: we have a total/full solar eclipse On July 2nd 2019, at 12.16 pm Pacific time at 10 degrees 37 minutes of Cancer.
As I share in the podcast above, this is less about the 'exact time' of the eclipse.. and more about the energies that are already being offered and will continue to be present in the next 6 months, should we need them. Astrological phenomenon such as eclipses have 'cusps' where we can feel the energies start to activate and still connect with and sense them long after they're gone in linear time... I like to think of this as the energetic and gravitational pull of the planets and all celestial bodies, including the constellations. You can also imagine it about it as a smooth and never ending dance of the interplay of gravitational forces and energy fields.. An energetic dance where you can feel the gravitational pull of the energy long before you meet the celestial forces.. and connect with them even after they're on their way elsewhere.
Back to what's happening now, a Total Solar Eclipse. This is where the moon completely blocks or Eclipses the light of the Sun. Many state that this darkness breaks the auric field of earth.. which causes an opening and allows energies from higher dimensions to come in. Another way to look at this is that there's a cut out in the light; as in a momentary power outage.. and when the light resumes again we may have jumped forward. Think of how you feel when the power goes out, and it resumes again.. you feel renewed energy.. and even a possibly reorganization or re-prioritization of what you're paying attention and giving energy to. Eclipses have this same effect, and total eclipses add the exclamation point to the experience of power/light and it's return.
It's also worth noting there that pretty much all ancient traditions had high ranking priests and/or calendar keepers who's most important job was to predict eclipses. They were beheaded and/or demoted for any missteps in this very important task.. as all ancients had a relation to the heavens where they understood and connecting to the celestial bodies. This is once again a remembering for us in our current life. Suffice to say that prior to modern astrology and the internet, most all cultures have been found to be aware of the power of celestial happenings, and they paid very specific attention to eclipses.
So here we are today... remembering this esoteric wisdom and stepping into our own power and purpose. What's oh so important and powerful about this eclipse is that we have a particular alignment of sun and moon and north node in cancer.. (Which happened last in 2009-2010.. so its also worthwhile to revisit what you were visioning and birthing then). Cancer herself is cardinal water. I like to think of gushing waterfalls, so powerful you can barely speak, but you are fully aware and in awe of their energy. This is the Goddess Incarnate.. and these energies of the Solar Eclipse are oh so loving and supportive and Goddess-Mother-ly. But they're also not messing around they're not just soft goo of a mom who will always love us.. They're the Mother & Goddess Universe who are lovingly supporting us to embody our Soul's Purpose.
This means we have the opportunity to move beyond our own shadows (south node) and self-imposed limitations into the lightness and brightness that naturally flows from within.. and joyfully guides us on the path of our soul's purpose. This is powerful to integrate with daily life.. the fears, doubts and messages that keep us small and looking for proof and security and ego validation. How do we do this? I offer a breath mediation, as I have come to know and experience the breath as one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal .. always.
If you'd like more personalized information about your lifetime, your energies in this eclipse I also offer for a live 30 minute reading below Regardless, enjoy the podcast as well as the opening of Eclipse Season!
