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

Freedom in the mind's eye

There is Freedom in Your Mind’s Eye….

Freedom in the mind's eyeThere is a space within you that offers endless grace and ease. It is a sacred and peaceful place where you are the authority. This is a place you enter to re-charge, find your neutrality, expand your perspective and see things in a different light.

Where is this sacred space you might ask? It is in the center of your head, your mind’s eye. The best part about this is that you can enter at any time. In fact, if you choose, you can use this space 24/7 to live a more spiritual life.

As Hiro Boga says, “To Be Soul, Do Soul”

“Close your eyes and turn all the way around, slow-w-ly. Sense or feel the open door, the one that offers you ease, that welcomes you to a new homecoming.

Walk up to this doorway, still with your eyes closed. Feel the grain of the threshold under your feet, the door jamb beneath the palm of your hand. Feel the life pulsing on the other side, offering itself to you.

When you’re ready, step through. Breathe this new air. Feel who you are, in this unknown, deeply familiar place. Feel how you stand, how your feet hold and are held by the ground here.

Feel yourself welcomed, embraced, in all your beauty and timidity, your power and grace. Feel all this place holds for you and with you.

Ask those questions that glow steadily in your heart.
Here are the ones that arise to my lips in this liminal space.
Why am I here?
How do I truly love?
What is yearning to be born?
How do I serve now?
How do I love my world now?

Stay here for as long as you wish. When you feel complete, for now, ask this place for a talisman, a reminder that the door is open for you, that welcome and belonging await you there, as they do here.

Turn around, and step back into the present moment, bringing the gifts of this place with you. Place your talisman on your altar, or in the altar of your heart. Kiss it, bless it, be blessed by it.

Write a note, a promise to yourself, to your soul, to your world: This is what I will do to live where I’m being called, to live where I belong.

Then, gather your allies and resources. Make a plan. Put it into motion. Begin today.”
From Hiro Boga’s book To Be Soul, Do Soul: Adventures In Creative Consciousness

There is no right way or wrong way to “do soul” or “be soul” but there are tools and techniques that help you along the way. Open your mind to the possibilities and try new things. I love the passage that says “place the talisman in the altar of your heart. Kiss it. Bless it and be blessed by it.” Give it a try and let me know about your experience!~Shine Your Light Debbie
