There’s a whole rainbow of astrological energies affecting us this month and particularly today, as the full moon and lunar eclipse is coupled with mercury retrograde. I love reading up on all the different insights into what is happening around us and within us during these phases. I loved Ezzie Spencer’s post on today’s astral movements:
“Eclipses are accelerators. Just like at any Full Moon, be prepared to take action to bring your intention into form, and release attachment to the outcomes of your intention. So at this Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon, be ready to move faster. This full moon is in Aries, which is a hot and initiatory energy. Be courageous and take action at this eclipse to bring your New Moon intention into form. What was your New Moon intention? Hark back to your Libran New Moon intention, set two weeks ago. The themes were to do with stepping into your radiance, allowing yourself to shine, and allowing the flow of beauty and prosperity into your life. Take steps at the Lunar Eclipse to bring more of this into your life.”
I also enjoyed the insight posted on Mystic Mamma about the Lunar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde, and how you can navigate through this powerful phase as explained by Helen on The Little Sage. These two resources speak a lot about taking a patient and reflective approach to this month. Continuing to take steps towards your dreams and being your true self, but don’t feel the need to rush towards it right now, get things organised as the momentum builds, and release with force when things align again in November.
In my little creative hub, things are definitely building up and moving towards something bigger and I’ll be using the creative and fiery energy of the eclipse to make headway in the way of new projects and planning how I want to spend my time creatively. In line with the insights of springing forward in November, this happens to be a period when I’ll be launching some new exciting things which I am bursting to share with my little community here. I will also be celebrating the 1st birthday of Maps to Herself! More on that soon but I wanted to share a little about what is happening astrologically today and over the month as I’m sure you are feeling it to!
