Well done for getting through the Eclipse season! The dynamics of the last Lunar Month will be in effect for the next 6 months and will ripen at the next round of Eclipses November/December. This will be a huge time for humanity and my sense is that getting through the rest of this year is key.
This Lunar Month is a call back to our humanity and our personal connection to humanity. We are still moving through a meta cycle that is focused on the breaking down of systemic greed, corruption and misuse of power. It is confronting as almost every week there is another story of someone in a position of power being called out
We begin this Lunar Month with the second New Moon in Cancer in a row! The New Moon last Lunar Month was actually a Solar Eclipse and was super potent. This New Moon is in strong aspect to Saturn which will activate the potential for empowering whatever you are working on at this time in your life and energise the story to be able to go the distance.
Saturn asks for commitment and taking responsibility. This is definitely a time where we are being asked to look within and to get clear on how we are interpreting the current world events.
We have three options:
- Go into denial and bury our heads in the sand.
- Live in fear and go into anxiety and operate from a reactionary survival position.
- Respond from wisdom and kindness and move with the times looking between the cracks for where the light of the future is beginning to pour through.
I get the sense that this Lunar Month is an invitation to take greater responsibility for our part in co-creating this reality and to move consciously with these cycles.
In Tibetan Buddhism, there are teachings on how to navigate times of degeneration. Basically, when the world gets wild there is an invitation to go inwards, to go within and calm your own system. You can do this through meditation, healing, talk therapy, a cup of tea with a friend, time in nature, movement practices, sitting with spiritual wisdom, prayer, ceremony.
Tibetan Buddhism teaches that during times of degeneration you have a powerful opportunity to work with the energy and to leverage the intensity to support your own practices and the rest of this year is going to continually give you opportunities to work with this.
There is so much more to this month some of which I cover in the video above. Plus if you join The Lunar Project I include all of what I see in the Astrological Cycles into Rituals and practices to support us through these cycles.
KEY DATES & THEMES
(i) NEW MOON IN CANCER - JULY 2oth/21st
As this is the second New Moon in Cancer in a row, we get to really tune deeply into what supports and nourishes us. Saturn is directly opposite this New Moon, giving us an opportunity to commit to something at this time that requires hard work and staying power that we know will nourish us in the long run. You can really harness this energy at this New Moon.
(iii) FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS - AUGUST 3rd/4th
This Full Moon wants to turn our attention towards the future! This is a moment to look between the cracks of the structures that are breaking down! We are co-creating the future and these are the days to take responsibility for your part of the deal and to get clear on how you are interpreting the events of the current times.
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into Rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>>
I get the sense that working consciously with these times is a way to advance ourselves individually on whatever spiritual path we are on. The intensification of these times provides us each with a powerful opportunity to develop our spiritual wisdom through the way we choose to navigate the times we are living through.
It is not what you are looking it is how you are looking at it... EVERY SINGLE TIME! Are you looking from fear or are you looking from wisdom, understanding and compassion? It honestly is your choice. No matter what is going on, you / we all have the option to respond to events from consciousness, awareness, wisdom and compassion!
This is another potent Lunar Month where we get to really commit to what we know we need to do to move the story forwards.
Cancer and Aquarius are both focused on humanity. This may be a Lunar Month to really tune into what that means to you. How can you stop and connect with your own humanity? How can you stop and connect with all of humanity and know that you are not separate and that we are all in fact connected to everyone and everything and that we are all truly in this together.
Stay open, learning and trying to understand what is really going on and not forget that this is a massive year with continual transformation and restructuring of power dynamics. It is a monumental metamorphosis for all of humanity and how you move through these times is not only important to your own personal development, but it is impacting the whole human story.
Take it easy everyone, take care of each other and don't forget that we are all co-creating this story!
With love always,
