So much is happening in the skies! This weekend we have a New Moon and a partial Solar Eclipse (later this month we have a Lunar Eclipse). In September Venus, Mercury and Pluto all change directions and go into Retrograde. Mars and Saturn change signs. And at the end of the month we have our Autumn Equinox! This is enough to make your head spin! But, fear not... all change is good change.
Without going into the details of what all this means... let's just keep the focus on how to support you through this time.
Your new motto : Let it happen!
Let it happen is different than "let it go." Let it happen is all about allowing what is right in front of you to be embodied. It's all right there. It's about allowing. Giving permission. And surrendering.
These last few days have been particularly emotional ones. So many people around me, myself included, have felt waves of emotion coming from "nowhere." Allow yourself to be emotional without having to know why. That "why" question comes from our minds, it really just gets in the way of our own experience, it blocks it, and slows it down, and sometimes even stops it. Try to just sit back and let it happen. And trust those emotions, your body has a wisdom that the mind cannot even fathom. Sometimes you won't know why, and that's ok, and maybe for the best. The best thing you can do is just allow and give yourself permission. Let it come up, let it be felt, and let it happen. It's gifts and lessons will be stored in your body, trust that they are there.
With this New Moon we are in a time full of opportunity! An opening! Whatever has been knocking on your door, whatever lesson has been hitting you over the head, whatever direction you are feeling pulled toward, whatever you are wanting to do... ask yourself "What am I waiting for?" Are you waiting for it to hurt more, to hit rock bottom, for permission, for an invitation, until it's easy, for the perfect time? Pay attention to what has been showing up over and over for you. And move in that direction. Let it happen. You don't have to understand how it will all happen... this is where trust and faith come in. And let the energy of Virgo this month help you. Virgo's are great in the day to day organization of things, focusing on practicality and order as a way to function and move through life. This is how they achieve great things! So, just stay focused on what is right in front of you. Ground yourself in the day to day, one step at a time, and let it unfold right before you. And not to far into the future you will be ready to look up - at the horizon - to see that you are in the big picture.
Also, ask yourself - "What am I resisting?" When things show up time and time again, over and over, it's a good question to ask. What are you resisting? I believe that there are natural forces at work, and currents of energy that have direction. It's when we ignore or resist this natural flow that things get tricky / unnecessarily painful or difficult / confusing / heavy... and so on.
New Moon's are opportunities for introspection. They are a blank slate, in their darkness anything is possible. It's a great time to make wishes for the next two weeks and beyond. Read more on how to do this here. You can wish about anything you want, but think about the kind of support you need and what will help you tackle the big picture. Think about the Virgo energy we are in right now: getting organized, focused, clearing things away. It's a great time to make wishes involving these things, as well as some of these questions - "What am I waiting for?" - "What am I resisting?"
Let it happen!
