Happy Canada Day on July 1st and Happy Independence Day to all of my friends south of the Boarder on July 4th!
The summer has officially arrived, but here in Ontario it does not really feel like summer yet! With all the rain, one might think that purification is required, or perhaps it’s just Mother Nature nurturing us! With The sun in the sign of Cancer, purification and nurturing are typically things we connect with. However, there is another astrological energy taking place that also pulls in those vibrations. On July 1st, Chiron, The wounded healer stations retrograde at 28 degrees of Pisces and will be in a retrograde phase until December 5th. With this asteroid, we are not focusing on the retrograde for the whole cycle, only a week before to a week after it shifts direction. Both wounding and healing existing now. Many people are taping into what is causing them pain in their lives, and sometimes it is not that intense but rather a reflection process. It is really about discovering your own internal wounds so that we can heal them. WE are being given the opportunity to heal wounds that are connected to our inner light. What makes your light shine? What dims it? I suggest focusing on the answer to both of those questions. Quite often, we try to focus on the positives that are taking place so that we can attract more of that into our lives. The problem is there are so many times that we do not focus on what we need to heal. If we don’t truly heal what is being asked of us, then we keep repeating those patters. How can you allow your light to shine to its fullest potential? Look into your wounds, accept them, embrace them for a moment, and allow yourself to truly feel the darkest aspects of the wound. Then, flip it, shine the light on it. Let love flow through your being and you will see that it has no power over you at all. If you can identify with the core of the wound then you can heal that wound with LOVE.
Love is a very powerful healing tool. It automatically flows through you when you embrace life with an open heart. Our wounds close our heart, but Chiron stationing retrograde is allowing you to get a glimpse of WHY your heart may feel closed or how to integrate the necessary healing.
It is giving us the opportunity to sit in all the different aspects of the wound for as long as you require, and when you can let the love flow through you, you will understand how everything is connected. Awareness is the key to healing. Are you aware of the truth of what needs healing? Can you embrace the love that flows around and through you? If you can, then you will heal in the most powerful of ways.
On July 5th we get to experience the last of the three hits with Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. There is a bit of confusion happening here with this aspect. It originally took place on Oct 23 2016, then again on May 17, 2017. We may feel like we are going in circles with this energy, but it is really about taping into the rhythms of life. When in this cycle, life may feel like a bit of a whirl wind, or perhaps you may feel like you are at a stand still. Neither matters, for they are both a reflection of keeping you in a place that you may not desire to be in. In order to embrace this energy to its highest potential, once must align with their path of service or Dharma. One may not know what is appropriate or inappropriate at this time, so excuse the faults of others from a place of humility. With Jupiter in Libra and Neptune in Pisces we are looking at our spiritual growth and how karmic relationships can assist us with that. Embrace those people who are in your life at this time and be grateful for the experiences that you are having with them. I also offer you this, embrace the relationships for the people who may have caused you pain in the past. For when you heal, you rise above the duality of the mundane reality and understand the perspective of the Soul and its learning. Forgive those who have caused you pain in the past, and you will find that you have forgiven yourself!
The Full Moon takes place on July 9th at 17 degrees of Capricorn 9 minutes. The moon does not really like being in the sign of Capricorn as its natural energies are somewhat restricted in this sign. This particular Full Moon is asking us to be somewhat grounded and contained, which may trigger some resentment to what we feel may be limiting us from our free flow natural energy. Keep this in mind… In order to create anything that we desire to sustain, we need to restrict the energy. As an example, we need to contain how we may truly feel about our employer if we desire to keep our job. So chin up, use your grounded and sustainable aspects of the self to move through whatever lessons are coming to you on the practical plane. Tap into your internal light and extend those roots of light shine down through your feet so that you remain grounded in whatever it is that you are doing.
The New Moon inspires our hearts ot open as it takes place at 00 degrees of Leo 44 minutes on July 23rd. The Sun shifted into Leo just before the New Moon takes place, so we will be adjusting to the new solar frequencies. This particular moon stimulates the fire of creation, and the fire of spirit. Spiritual fire is something that can take multiple lifetimes to understand, but when activated within the self (on the smallest of levels) one can be inspired to lead, to take charge and to move forward. Both the ego and the spirit live within the heart charka which is ruled by the Sun (and the sign of Leo). When we feel the connection to our heart, we get to choose if we are operating from ego consciousness or spirit consciousness. Fire is passion, it is the life-force energy that moves through us, and it can also be destructive. Just as the sun can burn your skin, so can in nourish you. So decide what passions lay within your heart. Tap into the passion that comes from your spirit and move thought this time with Love in your heart.
