Courage and curiosity
reveal your heart fire.
Ignite your path.
Illuminate hidden traps.
Clear the way forward.
Create space for the unexpected.
Live in the now.
Deal with the what is.
Dance away the debris
of the past.
“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.” John Maynard Keynes
Lucky to be liberated,
graced to be free.
Admit your folded wings
to open fully
and follow the light.
Maybe anger brings clarity
or blood rises to cloud the eyes.
Old habits are a trap.
Step alive. Ignite your path.
Eclipse sparks a short circuit.
Leap into the future
and find yourself in the now.
Surf the shimmering
edge of awakening.
“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” Alan Alda
Lunar Eclipse Leo
January 20, 2019 9:15 pm PT
I’ll take the liberty of quoting myself regarding a Lunar Eclipse Leo:
The dark side of this eclipse is greed, self-pity or a hunger for approval that masquerades as emotional fulfillment. The awakening is connected to a larger, all-inclusive awareness, that takes in the mistakes of the past and includes healing and forgiveness.
The eclipsed moon is in Leo, sign of creative expression, generosity and self-love. Doesn’t everyone deserve unabashed self-love and the vitality of self confidence? Here we have an opportunity to see and feel limiting criticism and judgements exposed. Welcome the light of love into the hidden places, bring gentleness to the vulnerability within you and the vulnerability in everyone.
Additionally, Jupiter square Neptune which came into place on January 13 (through September 21, 2019) gets cozy with Venus in Sagittarius at the time of this eclipse. Dreams and desire, illusions and ideals in romance and friendships are heightened. Enjoy the optimistic boost, be inspired, don’t hesitate to ask questions and be up front with the truth. Expectations go hand in hand with ideals. Be clear about your intentions and those of others. For some, there is an inexplicable yearning that cannot be quenched.
Eclipses always agitate the air. This one is squared by Uranus, the electric agent of synchronicity and change. We’re getting more than the usual dose (but what is usual anymore??) of the unexpected. Some will be feeling more nervous, angry or impulsive. Use the impetus to break free of fear and find the freedom to express yourself.
“A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.” Gerald G. Jampolsky
☽ Leo Eclipse Contemplations ☼
What is my personal shadow on the other side of unabashed self-love? Is there any reservation (shame? fear? fear of what?) that holds back the radiance of my life force?
Where am I sensing an impatience or restlessness within me? How may I risk living life differently? What would that look like for me? Is there something I can begin immediately?
“It is a unique and powerful gift to articulate the intersection between the mundane and the spiritual. I love how you articulate that which is from the other realms. To find the words that make sense by pulling together all the realms is amazing to me. Your intuition, your skill and ability to align science and psyche offers an enlightening perspective.” Maura G.
