Hello Goddess!

We are in the midst of SUCH a powerful energetic weekend!

We are now experiencing Mercury retrograde and the bright new opportunities of the summer solstice, as well as the illuminating and transformational solar eclipse energy! This magical event occurred overnight Saturday, June 20th/21st in 0 degrees of Cancer at 11:41PM PT (2:41AM ET on June 21st).

Solar eclipses are very powerful events, bringing about MAJOR transformation in our lives. It is a HUGE consciousness upgrade! This is a sacred opportunity to honor what needs to be released and put to rest-and to create new beginnings that will re-energize your life. The shifts and changes from a solar eclipse continue for as long as 6 months to a year afterwards. The house of your birth chart where the eclipse takes place will give you more info about what area of your life it is affecting specifically.

The moon rules Cancer, and both are also the archetype of the mother in astrology. The Cancerian themes revolve around home and family, nurturing, self care and your emotions. Cancer is also a very nostalgic and sentimental sign, so you may find yourself feeling emotional about “the good old days” or past connections that you have good memories of. Just remember that new moons & solar eclipses are about moving FORWARD, so try not to get stuck in the energy of the past.

This is a time to really ensure that you are nourishing your divine self as well as others. Create some time to honor yourself today in whatever way feels best to you. It’s a beautiful opportunity to even take this a step further and decide to make this month the beginning of your new AMAZING self care routine!

The time is NOW to look at the energy and the vision that you would like to create for the rest of 2020….. and even heading into 2021. How have things been going so far? Are you happy with where you find yourself now-or is there some deeper transformational work to be done? What information do you need to move forward? It’s time to make new conscious decisions and to envision and FEEL what you REALLY want, releasing the things that are no longer in alignment with your heart and inner truth. The decisions you make and the actions you commit to now will set the stage for the next 6-12 months, so make sure you are clear on what you want and are consciously moving towards it!
We currently have 6 planets in retrograde (Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune & Pluto). Venus will leave the party on June 24th, going direct once again. Remember to take some time to slow down, breathe and care for yourself as needed.

We just entered the realm of Mercury retrograde on June 17th and will remain there until July 12th. Once we are in the retrograde period, it’s best to use this time to set the intentions for what you wish to move forward with after eclipse season, and pay attention to anything that comes up for review or revision with those intentions later on.

The retrograde time asks us to take time to care for ourselves…….to slow down, breathe and take care of body, mind and spirit. Take this time to redo, revise, reorganize, reconnect, reflect and revisit wherever needed. It’s a great time to “clean out the closets” and revamp both your inner and outer environments.
It’s a GREAT time to review your intentions that you are creating during this new moon cycle, pay attention to anything that comes up for revision with those intentions, then wait until after the (2nd!!) Cancer new moon on July 20th to implement major actions if at all possible.

A few things to keep in mind during the retrograde:

  • If possible, avoid making large purchases such as cars and homes.
  • Make sure your computer has been backed up and try not to buy electronics during this time if you can help it.
  • It’s a good idea to wait on launching a new business, signing important contracts, and making important decisions if possible. Decision making can be off at this time and you may find afterwards that you didn’t have all of the information needed to do so. If you do need to do any of these things, just be sure to double and triple check written contracts and ensure that there are no miscommunications.

When considering the above-always go with your inner guidance, first and foremost! Maybe you are feeling guided to go ahead and do something on the above list. Maybe your car just broke down and you need to buy a new one during the retrograde period. These are just guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Do whatever you feel divinely guided to do!

Pluto in Capricorn continues to assist us in transforming our lives by helping us to break down old paradigms and structures, helping us to let go of what is no longer in alignment with our Higher Self. Saturn revisiting Capricorn from July-mid December brings in a reminder to focus on responsibility, hard work and the potential to achieve your goals. This energy assists in building the new foundations that will support us as we move into this new cycle of action.
This is a FANTASTIC time to set intentions for what you wish to bring into form and create the momentum for the remainder of 2020. *IMPORTANT NOTE* When setting intentions after a solar eclipse, be sure to wait until 48 hours AFTER the eclipse has become exact. This is different then setting intentions during a regular new moon period. It is important to also avoid any Moon Void of Course times when doing so. Please join me in my Facebook group, Awakening to Your Cosmic Design for Sunday’s solar eclipse video where you will receive information on the best times to set your intentions, as well as discovering what the Mercury retrograde period means for you.
We have TONS of energy moving during this time! Take care of yourself, go within and really honor your needs right now.

Some questions to reflect or journal upon during this eclipse cycle:

~What would it look like if I chose to shine my light even more fully in the world?
~What do I need to release from the past that is no longer in alignment with my Higher Self?
~What am I feeling guided to create in the second half of this year and going into 2020?

Remember that you are a POWERFUL creator! Take this opportunity to make changes for the better, to take action and create the life that you desire.

It’s YOUR time my friend!! <3
