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.
The Lion’s Gate, today, August 8th, is an annual time of expanded consciousness, increased frequencies, and spiritual epiphanies. Expect your awakening to quicken and your multidimensional awareness to increase. It’s important to take the time to ground the energy that you receive – for integration purposes today, my most recommended crystals are natural citrine, smoky quartz, septarian, dravite (brown tourmaline), or kambaba jasper.
The Lion’s Gate occurs in the time of Leo, so the lions are highly active right now. Here’s a message from them.
Thank you, loved ones. You’ve come a long way – you’ve understood much of what we’ve shared. You’re growing and expanding your consciousness and your being – it’s amazing – isn’t it? – to have things fall away and have more peace spring up in their place. At this point you surely understand part of why things had to go the way they did . . . you’ll understand even more in the coming months, as you integrate those upgrades that you have designed and implemented for yourself.
Each one of you is different, with unique characteristics – each one of you received an upgrade recently. Your DNA has activated in a way that it had not before. This has happened naturally, and the effect is more pronounced for those who have a spiritual perspective and have been growing in that way. You will recognize the difference; you will see the growth, feel it, embody it as you have wanted and tried to do. Manifestation is easier now – love is easier now – acceptance is easier now. Those are the things that you must cultivate even more moving forward.
It is important after this date to remember to keep your vibration high and to allow yourself to trust that you are in a pattern of continuous growth. Do not allow yourself to slide back to your old habits and ways – propel yourself forward, despite the seeming cost. You’ll lose friends – you’ll lose loved ones, potentially. But that’s okay. It’s for your highest good; it’s for your internal growth. Some aren’t meant to remain in our lives forever; the best thing that we can do in those cases is to embrace the lesson and move on from the past.
Don’t struggle to make things right again – know that as they fell away, it was for your benefit. The more drastic the falling away, the more for your benefit it was. If you’d clung to anything that should have expired before – it may have been more dramatic, but trust that it needed to occur. If things had belabored . . . well, you wouldn’t be where you are today, and you wouldn’t have been able to take in the upgrades that you’ve received. Rejoice in your expanded capacity to love, live, and know what’s best for you. These are the things that will help you going forward, more than a single relationship or friendship with an unmatched vibration would have helped you.
Enjoy the benefits; embrace your upgrades. Understand that all things happen for a reason, and continue to move and grow beyond them. Your world is just beginning, and your future is bright. Cling to that if you cannot stay in the present moment – but stay in the present moment if you’re able to. Your past is no longer a concern, however, and it needn’t be a part of your consideration.
Thank you for working with us, for growing in yourself, and for improving your relationships and perspective. These things are invaluable and will always be.
