This week a huge change is coming. Wednesday is the full moon, so it is very important to keep our minds clear and focused. Our collective fears and uncertainties are coming to the surface and manifesting in the world. We need to focus on what we want, what we can do to improve ourselves and society as a whole. It is time to face our fears and shadows head on and learn from them. Right now they are holding many of us in a state of panic and anxiety. Fires, hurricanes, and floods are surrounding us on a physical level. There is a direct reference to hurricane Harvey in the king of swords, who presides over the southwest, also to the fires in the west. The message is to honor nature, ourselves, and our communities. If we are united with compassion and kindness as a whole, the destruction will become rebirth.
After the emotional charge of the eclipse last week, energies are finally settling down. So much came through with the cleansing and darkness of the eclipse that everything was turned upside down, inside out, and every direction for many of us. This week as we concentrate on integrating and balancing our emotions and energies, the cards remind us to focus and remember that our power comes from our intention and perception. It is time to stay clear and centered and to embody the you who you are evolving into energetically. What did you experience over the past week? What was released? What was gained through this release? What emotions did you feel? How did they affect you physically and emotionally? It is important to take these things into account because during this waxing moon we are in high creation mode. Over this week and culminating on the full moon on September 6 we have the ability to take a drastic leap forward in creating a timeline that fully attunes us to our soul’s journey. The current cycle of anxiety, stress, negativity, anger, and low energy is ending. Take this time to look forward and inward. A new sense of joy, optimism, and energy is on the horizon. Open yourself to its embrace and prepare to move forward into the wonders of possibility.
This week starts off with intense energies. The full moon in Aquarius is tonight; it is also a lunar eclipse. While the full moon is a time to send out energies of manifestation, this is also an introspective moon. The cards for this week have a strong message. You are at the tipping point of the next level of inspiration, passion, and completeness within yourself. The words that come with this doorway are “That which you seek, you already are.” You know deep down what it will take to move closer to your truth and personal power. The moon brings this to light. You have to be willing to let go of the people, relationships, and situations that aren’t in your best interest. Make lists of these aspects of your life. Write stories to match, both as they are now and as you would like them to be. What is different between the two? What can you let go of or change to move closer to where you want to be? When you bring understanding to the present situations where you feel stuck, and really work on what needs to change, you will find yourself more fully present. There is no use mulling over the things that bother you. Either you change them or integrate them into the flow of your life. Once you get to this place of peace and balance, and allow things to change, your potential to create the you and the life that you desire will appear.
As we go into a new month and the last third of the year it is time to reflect and do some soul searching. What is it that you really want? I don’t mean more money, a new car, a better job. This isn’t about the material things. What do you want for your life? What is truly needed for you to cultivate happiness and balance? We are starting a new cycle of death and rebirth. The darkness is slowly creeping forward to show us which patterns need to be let go in order to evolve. This knowledge is living in the subconscious. It shows up through introspection and intuition. Is there a little twinge that something just isn’t quite as it should be? Do you feel like you are on the edge of something great, but you can’t quite see what it is? Don’t dwell on the outcome, but sit with the feelings. There is a level where you know how to fight for what is truly in your best interest, to move through any opposition in your path. Everything isn’t black and white. Be patient and let the colors merge. Be willing to let go if need be; be willing to charge forward if that is what calls your soul. Be your own witness and you will find your truth.
Passions are easily stirred up today. Watch out for situations that may trigger an emotional response. Work hard to center yourself and control your gut reaction. When you have a clear head you can use the fiery inspiration to clearly communicate your feelings and position with understanding and empathy.
We are in the tail end of the energies of last night’s new moon. The presence of the moon card talks about the subconscious energies that were stirred up and ready to be released. The feelings may be difficult to deal with and you may want to try to push them back down, to try to talk yourself into the light. You are going through a process of growth. It will be difficult, but let it happen. Accept the feelings that have been held for so long, sit with them, and center yourself. Acknowledge the dark, accept it, and welcome the coming light. Feel the inspiration and strength that comes from accepting the parts of yourself that feel unlovable.Use this inspiration to shape your shape your world.
