Mars Retrograde

Awakening Souls Energy Insider: July 2018 Edition

Awakening Souls Energy InsiderIt’s July which just happens to be this Leo woman’s Birthday month! July’s flowers are the Water Lily/Lotus Flower and the Larkspur. They are not only beautiful but hold great symbolism.

Water Lilies and Lotus flowers represent rebirth and optimism as they return to waterways after the rains, even if they dried up the previous season. They also represent what is true, good and beautiful, including peace and spiritual enlightenment. To me, this represents hope that what seemingly will never return will bloom again.

Larkspurs are sweet and joyful sprinkled with a wee bit of lighthearted, carefree summer days. I sense a theme here and I’m good with it.

I’m choosing to hold space for all that is good and beautiful to prevail in these tumultuous times. I hope you’ll join me in holding space for a rebirth of peace, kindness and love.


Featured Reading:
Your Birth Agreement

What better way to celebrate my birthday than to offer YOU a reading about your birth agreement.

In this reading I will look at your birth agreements which include what you came here to do, why you chose your parents and why they chose you.

This information speaks directly to clearing a path for you to connect with your soul’s purpose this lifetime.

Note: Feel free to choose from a 90, 60 or 30 minute session. All you have to do is schedule and mention you’d like this month’s featured reading. There seems to be confusion about how to schedule these readings.

July Musings

July MusingsWhat a month this is going to be! Many Astrologers are calling this the Summer of Retrograde. In addition to Mars (already) in Retrograde, and Mercury entering Retrograde on July 25th we will have a Full Blood Moon lunar eclipse. It’s a bit like lions and tigers and bears. Oh,my!

Yes, the energy is all over the map, so to speak and we’ve all been feeling the heat. I know some like it hot but I also know others do not.

Of course, I’m not talking about the weather. There are those who exist on chaos and division and it’s possible that you are taking on some of that energy. Fear is running rampant and it is challenging to figure out how much of it is ours and how much is not. If you’re feeling isolated, frustrated, angry and lashing out, you might also be feeling the early effects of Mars Retrograde.

A quick note about July 4th:

I’m almost afraid to write anything about a holiday that is supposed to be a celebration of freedom but it’s important to open a conversation so we can begin the process of bridging the divide between “us” and “them.” It’s not about “us” and “them”. It’s about WE.

“July 4 1776 “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Let us all work towards establishing justice, promoting the general welfare and securing the blessings of liberty for ALL.

Retrograde SummerMars Retrograde

All planets at one time or another go retrograde. This is when they seem to move backwards.

Astrologically speaking when a planet goes retrograde we experience a slow down of forward motion in our lives; We are given the opportunity to create great change as we review and recharge.

Mars Retrograde June 26-August 27

Mars, the planet of action, motivation and desires, began it’s retrograde cycle on June 26th. If you’ve experienced a lack of motivation or apathy, feeling sluggish or impatient this is why.

Mars in Retrograde gives us the opportunity to take pause and reflect on our actions.Are our actions in alignment with our vision and purpose? Do our actions have clear intent that supports what we wish to create? What are WE putting out into the world?

Mars rules over emotions like anger, conflict, and frustration so if you’re holding on and resisting them, this retrograde period may cause them to be released. The good news (yes, there’s good news!) is that when Mars is in Retrograde the energy slow down will allow you to be more mindful. This will be especially helpful in your communications this month.

All actions, and our intent behind those actions, have consequences and those consequences are either in alignment with our vision and supporting us or not. As with all retrogrades it’s best to pause, reset, regroup, recharge, re-energize and reflect.

Mercury Retrograde July 26-August 19:

The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts, automobiles, and such. So, when Mercury is retrograde, stay flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.

About a week or two before Mercury retrogrades, finish any tasks or projects at hand. You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be ready for angrier people and miscommunication.

Some people blame Mercury retrograde for “bad” things that happen in their lives. Instead, take this time to sit back and check where you put your energy in your life.”~Farmers Almanac

Just as with the Mars Retrograde this is a gift of slow down. Take advantage of it! Here’s a post I wrote about using The Power of Mercury Retrograde for Self-Healing.

(You might also consider joining me for the How to Thrive During Mars & Mercury Retrograde meditation workshop. You’ll have everything you need to get you through! Please visit my website meditation workshop page for details.

Summary:

Yay for the retrogrades giving us time to pause, practice patience, and all the RE’s. Relax, review, recharge, etc. It’s time to breathe, forgive and, as I mentioned in the opening, hold space for a rebirth of love, tolerance, inclusion, kindness and peace.This month is a month to be aware of what we’re putting out into the Universe.

It is a time to connect with all that is good and beautiful within our being so we can join together to effortlessly hold space for all that is good and beautiful in the world.

There will be plenty of time to enjoy the of summer days. For now it’s time to take a breath. Find joy in the lush green of a forest or meadow or the beauty in a babbling brook or mountain stream. Enjoy the summer festivals, loving moments with family and friends and of course celebrate YOURSELF and all that you are!~Shine Your Light Debbie

The Super Frost Moon is upon us! If you’ve been extra emotional the past few days, the Moon, plus Mercury going Retrograde at the same time, might be why.

Feelings and emotions are your body’s way of communicating with you so honor your feelings instead of pushing them aside. Listen to what they are telling you. This is indeed a time for a little extra self-love and a lot of forgiveness all around.

The Super Frost Moon in Gemini is all about truth and uncovering who we really are, not who we think we are. The full Super Moon invites us to dig deep as it shines a light on unresolved emotions, things we may have buried within our psyche and things we didn’t or couldn’t express.

Think of this Super Moon like a spotlight shining into your soul. Super Moon’s tend to amplify the energies and with Mercury Rx in play it might feel like we are taking two steps forward, one step back. That said, this Moon will also guide us to see and connect with our highest essence and open up a new space for expanding our creativity!

Mercury Retrograde has gotten a bit of a bad rap. This recurring event, among other things, is about RE-flection, RE-visiting, RE-leasing, RE-charging, and RE-juvenating. Mercury RX is not to be feared or resisted. It’s a time to be mindful.

Think of Mercury Retrograde as reflect and release so we need not repeat.

Mercury Retrograde is a gift that allows us to slow down and take time to reflect versus unconscious reaction. Its job is to give us pause. To point us to those things we might have missed, overlooked, or pushed aside so we can finally deal with, and release, whatever ‘IT’ is.

Trust the process. Both the full moon and Mercury Rx are bringing things to the surface. Be open to the process and what comes to light. Embrace the slow down and have faith that whatever you experience as truth comes to light, it too will pass.

As we come to the close of a tumultuous year of awakening it’s a great time to reflect on how far we’ve come. If your emotions seem to take over, allow the Super Frost Moon to illuminate the darkness and show you the way! Stand in the spotlight center stage, honor your emotions and fill yourself up with the light of truth!~Shine Your Light Debbie
