FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE TONIGHT! OH SHIFT!

Lunar Eclipse“A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon.”~Wikipedia

According to the Farmer’ Almanac “What is unusual about this month’s lunar eclipse is that it is the first of a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. Called a “tetrad,” such a series of four total eclipses in a row is not an overly rare event. The last such series happened in the years 2003 and 2004, and it will occur seven more times in the current century.”

What does this mean for you? Eclipses magnify and greatly amplify whatever we are empowering in our lives. This includes our creations, thoughts, feelings, words, actions, beliefs, and memories. Eclipses are wonderful opportunities for growth and transformation. Think back to 2003/2004 when the last tetrad occurred. What grew and manifested? What changed?

Eclipses are powerful energy boosters. Whether we are bringing our creations to light or eclipsing out what no longer serves us, we all have an opportunity for profound growth during this powerful time. This is a great time to let go of old patterns and to focus, empower and strengthen our spiritual selves. As we bring in more of who we are we,  in essence, re-invent ourselves and change our human actions and experience.

The Sun, Earth and Moon will be exactly aligned and so too must we align with ourselves and our personal, spiritual, and creative goals. During this powerful planetary alignment, take time to align with who you are, your place on this beautiful earth and all you wish to give to the world. We are all here to make a difference and the eclipse marks yet another profound transformation in the world and within ourselves.

Full Moons allow us to reap the benefits or consequences of earlier actions and this one is no different. If you’re reaping the benefits, enjoy! If you’re experiencing the consequences in a not so positive way, make sure to bring in lots of forgiveness so you don’t get stuck in it for any length of time. Acknowledge, forgive, let go and move on. With the powerful eclipses at work, things will shift in the blink of an eye.

OH SHIFT! Things are a changin….

Yes things are changing rapidly as they have in the past couple of years. Everything is cyclical and these tetra of eclipses simply give us a chance to enrich our lives. They give us another time for transformation within. They present us with another opportunity to be more of who we are as we put our dreams, passions and creations into motion.

Take time to enjoy the eclipse and your own energy. Be aware of what you give power to. If it doesn’t serve you, let it go and “power up” not only what serves you but what brings you joy as it comes alive and manifests in your life. POWER UP!~Shine Your Light Debbie

MERCURY RETROGRADE: Use it to Your Advantage!

Once again Mercury, the planet ruling of all forms of communication, intellect, commerce and technology, begins its retrograde phase. Perhaps you’ve already been feeling the effects of this upcoming phase. You may be forgetful, have technology challenges or notice a lot of mis-communication. Mercury goes retrograde three times a year and in my opinion has gotten a bit of a bad rap.

Yes, there are communication issues, you shouldn’t sign a contract without checking and double checking the details (it is not advisable to sign anything during this time but if it’s unavoidable do your best to be mindful of the fine print) lest it have to be re-negotiated, and technology challenges arise at every turn but you are actually receiving a gift. Mercury retrograde gives you the opportunity to review all the details that have led you to the present moment. Take this time and use it to your advantage!

Going backwards to move forward…

How can you possibly use it to your advantage when things that were once flowing seemingly coming to an abrupt halt? Well, that’s exactly HOW you use it to your advantage!  When Mercury goes retrograde you have a chance to re-visit energies and heal those things you may not know consciously are still unresolved. You might start thinking about past events, hear from an old beau or notice you are in a challenging situation very similar (or exactly the same) as something that happened in the past. When this happens, not “if” but “when”, you can heal it because you now know it wasn’t cleared up or there is stuck energy still needing to be released or resolved. With awareness this is a time clear blockages and receive a tremendous healing.

The slow down or halt of those things that were flowing nicely is also a gift. Use this time for rest and rejuvenation. Reflect on what’s been going on, how you’ve handled yourself, the choices you’ve made and go within to reconnect with your passion and spirit. Our daily lives move so rapidly that sometimes we put things on the back burner, so to speak. Review what has happened, clear the energy, forgive yourself and others then move on to plan for the creative endeavor you put away until further notice. Mercury retrograde is the “further notice”! This slow down gives you ample opportunity to fine tune, re-connect with spirit, heal and re-visit anything and everything you’ve shoved into the closet in the back of your mind. You don’t necessarily want to start anything new until after March 17  (allow one week after for the energies to settle) but you can certainly put your plan of attack on paper!

You can even use the technology breakdowns to your advantage. if your computer crashes you might just have to pick up the phone and actually speak to a human being instead of the email you were going to send. If technology goes haywire and you can’t send an important document or report, review what you were working on. You may find an error you previously missed or a paragraph that could use clarity and this gives you the chance for a complete or partial ‘do over’ if necessary. Of course we love our Facebook, Twitter and the like but if for some reason you are dis-connected from your social media, you now have the time to get connected with yourself again! You have time to meet up with a friend in person or better yet before you go out take time to meditate!

Use this Mercury Retrograde time wisely and to your advantage. Take a step back, allow for a much-needed break, heal, reflect upon what you’ve accomplished and put your goals for the future in order. Take a deep breath, clear lingering blockages and let go. Review, renew, reflect, reconnect, notice where your attention has been and get your space back. ~Shine Your Light Debbie
