Plus the fact that this Friday is also a New Moon, which means new energy and a good time to start new endeavors. When an eclipse is taking place dramatic things can happen and emotions can be heightened. So if you are having an emotional week or Friday things just blow up in your face, there are larger factors at play here. Astrology fascinates me as it reminds me to: 1. come back to self acceptance of who I am because I was born with a blueprint and it is just a matter of getting to know me instead of trying to change me and 2. it brings the awareness that most things in life can not be explained with a simple answer....there are many factors working at the same time all the time.
So often I find myself wanting answers and understanding why I do the things I do or why my digestive tract suddenly starts acting up when I mentally feel nothing has changed. Yet, things are changing all the time: our relationships, jobs, for women where they are in their cycle, our energy can wax and wane depending upon the thoughts going through our head. And then there are the bigger things that we consciously don't stay awake to: the sun, the moon, where the stars are, the cycles of the earth, the season, the weather, the energy being emitted from our wireless router, our computer, the telephone wires, our cell phones. All these things affect us. Ever sat in front of the computer for a really long time and just got more and more tired. It is not just because you are working so hard, or blinking less as you stare at the screen, but the energy that is being emitted from your computer can be toxic to your body.
So what is the message here? We can't walk around in fear all day thinking about all the things that could be affecting us (trust me I've spent a day or two like that and I did not get a lot accomplished that day needless to say). It is a matter of coming back to earth, coming back to the ground. It is about lying on your floor and staring at the ceiling and walking barefoot in the park to connect back with the earth's natural energy, which is ultimately soothing and healing. When life or emotions get stirred up how can you nourish yourself to come back to the stillness that resides within you? How can you ride the wave of your own emotions and watch yourself from the outside like a curious observer?
It is not an easy thing to do, but the more you can completely empty yourself and get out of the thoughts of who you think you are or should be and accept what is, you can root your energy and presence back into the present moment.
P.S- this Friday...stay close to earth and it will help you connect back to your smiling heart.
