“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”   -Marie Curie

Energetically the past six or seven weeks have been an absolute richter scale between feeling self-assured, positive, and centered to being on the verge of screaming: “What the hell was I thinking?!”

New moons, full moons, retrogrades, and eclipses have been combining with a prevalent fear based mentality and unease about the state of affairs in the world.  With this, there has also been a pervasive trend to double guess, question, and feel like we are deluding ourselves, all leading to difficulty making decisions or moving forward.

Sometimes we just need to step back. It may be after a divorce, ending a job, entering the next stage of grief after the loss of a loved one, or maybe when we’ve finally had enough and know we can’t keep replaying the same scenario.

Looking back at who we’ve been no longer feels like it fits any more.  Looking ahead is a blank vista of hesitancy and confusion about where to go next.  As we stand in limbo trying to redefine who we are, the energies equally feel encouraging and foreboding.

Professional and novice astrologers alike are validating that the full moon partial eclipse coming in tomorrow is here to remind us to set our focus on our dreams and to stay steady in this whirlwind of change. Behaviors and choices that have kept us caught in a cyclical pattern are poised to be released so new insights can replace the repetitive limitations we’ve been placing on ourselves.

Is it finally go time?  Have we reached the apex and tipping point of truly stepping into our own as individuals so we can embrace our dreams as well as bond with like minded people as a collective? So many yearn to share experiences and thoughts with others who will nod in unison and smile in understanding. It is time.

If this eclipse really is the stepping off point for the energies of the next six to twelve months, what better time to align who you are and with what you want to do.  And if you are unsure, what better time to go within and ask yourself what you truly want and dream of bringing into your life. Freedom is showing up to instill the confidence to move forward in a new direction with clarity and creativity.

The beauty is as we step into embracing our individuality, we equally attract people who resonate with our true frequency thus establishing the community we crave. By standing up, getting centered,  and being respectful of ourselves, each other, and the planet, we will be able to access the strength and conviction of the inner warrior archetype to face these new beginnings and opportunities.

Navigating the energies of the past several months, and for many the past several years, may have left a hesitancy and insecurity towards stepping out of the comfort zone and trying again. Channeling the inner warrior allows us to take back our power and regain lost confidences as well as bring forth the version of ourselves who has been waiting patiently.

Getting out in nature can reawaken a stronger sense of self.  Finding a cause to support or defend can help to reignite passion and drive. Facing your fears and embracing the stirrings of your heart can lead to love, adventure and living a life of purpose.

Internally and externally we are shifting into the new consciousness of being.  There is little to no room left for wasting time, being insincere, or playing a role rather than living the life we came here to experience.  If you doubt you have the ability or strength, please gift yourself with looking back at how much you have experienced and overcome these past several years. Congratulations, you made it!
