Yesterday was the full moon in Leo and the start of the lunar eclipse, which extended through today. High-surging emotions from the last few weeks have now been shed to a large degree, making way for a new post-eclipse time of happiness, gratitude, and positive development. Motivation, charisma, and joy are increasing, while melancholy, existentialist concerns, and tearful reactions should be minimized. Breathe a sigh of relief that we’re through the turmoil and into greener pastures – there’s lighter and brighter energy afoot now, so enjoy it and your first foray into this post-eclipse world.
Eclipses always herald dramatic changes in the energetic environment, and this lunar eclipse is no exception. Thoughts are generally clearer and more precise; momentum is picking up with respect to ideas, projects, and relationships; and inspiration found lacking in recent months has rebuilt itself to a highly effective degree. Take advantage of this spurt of energy over the next few days, as the advent of the Virgo moon and additional waning moon energy on Wednesday will subdue things slightly.
Work with citrine, carnelian, red aventurine, or hematoid quartz to streamline your ideas and to boost your self-confidence and personal energy.
It’s the full moon in Aries, and the energy this week is all about taking charge through strong action. Find your flow so that you can focus and get things done – without some clear direction and a pre-planned roadmap, you may get lost in the details and forget about the overall plan.
What did you start working on at the new moon, and how can you funnel that momentum now? A major go-getter of the zodiac, Aries has the determination and tenacity to find the advantage in any situation. Channel that same energy to find your own advantage – differentiate yourself in your market, develop your skills, drill down on that one essential point that you understand so well – you know what you need to do.
Once you’ve taken clear action in the direction of your dreams, your next task is to sustain your progress. What processes can you put into place to support you as you move forward? How can you focus your efforts so that you continue down your path without veering off-course? What small steps now can save you mountains of time down the road?
For help in planning, developing, and acting on your goals, work with pyrite, hematite, sunstone, or carnelian.
