This Lunar Month is an invitation to open your brave heart all the way no matter what! We begin this cycle with the New Moon in Leo which is inviting us to operate more from our hearts. Our wisdom is not in our heads, it is in our wise hearts. These are the days to practice loving even when it feels impossible.
These times remind me of the Hindu Trinity:
In Hinduism, these deities are responsible for the creation, maintenance and destruction of the world. If we can't be with these different forces we will struggle.
Brahma equals creation. Vishnu equals maintaining and sustaining creation. Shiva equals breaking down of creation. Our reality exists constantly within these 3 realms and if you are not able to move wisely and gracefully through each one, you will suffer and resist the natural flow of the reality we live in.
The more graceful you are through these dynamics and changing times, the more you can remain heart centred and mentally sovereign, the more peaceful you will be. The more peaceful you are the more you can access wisdom. The more you can access wisdom, the more you will access high level solutions and creative ways forwards through these intense times on Earth.
The New Moon tomorrow in Leo is a moment to open your heart ALL the way and feel into your greatest potential! As you open fully to love, fear dissolves naturally.
Then the Full Moon this Lunar Month is in magical Pisces. This is an invitation to go super spiritual and connect with the celestial realms and to know there is more to this human experience than the chaos.
It is important to note the journey of Mars through the skies as just before the Last Quarter Moon in Gemini September 9/10, he will go retrograde. Now this isn't normally a big deal but the big thing with it is that he is activating Pluto/Jupiter/Saturn in Capricorn 3 TIMES and this is the configuration that Astrological symbology suggests is responsible for the great restructuring of our reality! It's big! And Mars will stir this up!
Mars activates and he is in his own sign of Aries so he is super charged and wanting revolution!!! This is a month to tune into what needs a revolution in your personal life. Of course this is a big time for the collective but let's keep moving with the energies and working with these cycles to benefit our spiritual and personal development!
I really recommend going and looking at the sky in the evening to observe Jupiter. Saturn and Mars shining bright. They are just so beautiful to look at. Ancient Astrologers believed that looking at the planets and stars and connecting with them would invoke their protection and blessings. They are easy to spot at the moment but you can always download a sky watcher app.
The good news is that there is plenty of opening and positive energy to work with this Lunar Month where we can really make this extra long 6 month Mars journey work for us! Mars is passionate and energising, let's charge up and be passionate about love and compassion!
This is also a month to reignite faith where it may be lost. We can still believe in something greater no matter what is changing around us.
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 LEO - AUGUST 18th/19th
As this is the New Moon in Leo. This New Moon is conjunct Mercury and trine Mars who is charged up in Aries. This is going to be an important moment to work with the generous and open hearted creative potential of Leo to the max!
This New Moon may reveal ways to allow love and wisdom to guide us out of the rabbit holes of fear and worry! Feel into it. Leo is ruled by the Sun. Take a moment to stand in the Sun and it's unpolluted light, not yet damaged by humans, and feel your system charge up!
(ii) FULL MOON IN PISCES - SEPTEMBER 1st/2nd
We literally are in a moment in time where practically every person on Earth is aware of moving through the same global event! Pisces is symbolic of the ultimate connectivity of everyone and everything. This Full Moon is a moment to feel into this greater connection we have and to embrace true compassionate understanding for each other.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune which adds a super spiritual overtone. This is a moment to truly embrace whatever spiritual practice supports and nourishes you. Embrace this Full Moon as a soothing balm to the heaviness we are currently moving through collectively.
:: 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 >>>
Yes Mars is strong this Lunar Month but it can be embraced through love (Leo) and compassion (Pisces) and we can take Mars' passionate and dynamic energy and apply it to a revolution away from fear and towards love!!!!!
We are living through a major climactic moment in history. This is the year we will look back and know that it all changed and if you move consciously with these times, as opposed to spinning in fear or living in denial as many currently are, you will be so grateful that you did.
Take it easy everyone and take care of each other and don't forget that we are all co-creating this story together!
With love always,
