Discover Your Solar Eclipse Magic
A little transparency here…
The Full Moon was last week on Wednesday the 5th and I have not (as I write this) yet done my Full Moon Journal reflection.
Heck, in total honesty I didn’t even change the page on the calendar to April until today. 😲
YIKES! That is so unlike me.
As I look back right now, in this moment, I see that I have been busy! Ha! Ha! I have had my fingers in a lot of “pots”, including one big technology project that consumed me like a dog with a bone (although I did manage to take time out to have some fun and enjoy the Easter holiday). I’ll share more on that in our upcoming Solar Eclipse gathering this Saturday in the Thriving Circle.
So yeah I had some distractions, most of them self-imposed.
That’s a perfect example of Aries fiery energy. It can consume you, fire you up like nobody’s business, and before you know it (if you’re not careful) burn out like a flame in the wind.
How about you? Do you ever struggle with finding some sort of balance between all your life, work, other commitments AND giving yourself space for rest and self-care?
It’s a lot sometimes, right?!
But when you do find that balance – it’s like finding the missing puzzle piece that completes the picture!
What is “balance” anyway? I think that differs for each of us. Certainly, some of us have a greater capacity than others for energy expenditure, and it probably shifts as we age and in correlation with the events in our lives – at least it has for me.
In addition, I think it’s unrealistic to expect there to be a real even, 50/50 at any one point in time.
So, you can just let that one go!
But just as a plant needs both sunlight and water to thrive, we need to nourish both our inner and outer selves to be at our best.
Too much focus on the outer commitments and obligations without enough time for rejuvenation can lead to burnout, just as a plant without enough water will wilt and die.
For the last month we’ve been under the influence of the Sun in the sign of fiery Aries. Aries is a sign of action 🏃♀️ and it can be really easy to find yourself in a go-go-go state of being and lose sight of what it is that feeds and nurtures you 💆♀️ – and not even realize it.
This eclipse invites you to cultivate your inner fire, to tap into your passions and desires, and to use your energy to create positive change in your own life and in the world.
It also invites you to embrace balance and alignment, especially now because eclipse energy can feel a little intense and because its influence extends beyond the typical monthly cycle of a New Moon – this energy will be with us for at least the next 6 months.
I have the perfect tool to support you with that, too!
The New Moon solar eclipse in Aries can be a powerful time to reflect, set intentions, and focus on new beginnings.
Here are some questions that you might find helpful to ponder during this time:
💡 What area(s) of my life am I ready to start fresh in? NOTE: the area of your life that this eclipse is highlighting (in your birth chart) will give you some clues as to where to start! I’ll be sharing what those are, too, this week.
💡 What are some areas in my life that feel out of balance or neglected? How can I begin to address these areas and bring more harmony into my life?
💡 What risks am I willing to take to pursue my dreams?
💡 What steps can I take to be a leader in my own life?
💡 What passions or desires am I ready to explore or pursue more fully?
Remember, these are just a few examples, and the questions that resonate with you may be different.
Use this time to reflect on what you truly want and what steps you can take to move closer to your goals.
Just know this…
This eclipse invites you to cultivate your inner fire, to tap into your passions and desires, and to use your energy to create positive change in your life and in the world.
Whatever you begin to put in place now, will serve you very well over the rest of the year.
So excuse me while I take a pause to reflect on the Full Moon. Ha! Ha!
With good energy,
