Stop for a moment and ask yourself “What do I love most? What brings me the most peace?” Setting aside the love you have for specific people, let this question of love be about the values, the experiences, the connections and the ways of being in the world that bring the most peace to your life. Things that inspire you and make your heart and spirit feel full.
When you feel into that, what comes to mind? And then imagine taking that and finding a way to share those things with the world. What inspired ways could you radiate that into the world? If your Soul was like the Sun, shining into the world, what inspired truth would it want to share? What action would your deepest joy and love want to take in the world?
These are the invited questions of the current New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Sidereal Leo, which peaks on September 1st, 2016. The Soul (Sun) and Heart (Moon) aligning with a deeper creative expression connected to Higher purpose and a sense of personal power. The energy of the Eclipse will activate in the window a few days before and after, and will continue to process deeply within the collective for several months.
The Eclipse energy magnifies these themes, and connects us to our deeper unconscious mind and shadow influences around this. It will stir up our creative, purpose driven desires, hopes and dreams, while also bringing our fears, doubts, and hidden motivations.
The eclipse is also taking place in the Nakshatra of Purva Phalguni. This location in the sign of Leo brings an influence of the blissful pursuit of happiness. What delights you?
It is the nature of all humans to move towards what bring delight and happiness. And in this eclipse time, especially, it might be helpful to stop and question where we seek delight? Do we seek it primarily in the outer world? Or do we seek in inward in our spiritual heart? Are we more focused on material happiness, on spiritual happiness, or have we learned to find a balance in honoring both?
And what is your motivation for sharing what you love in the world? Do you use it to build your own sense of ego and self-importance? Or do you radiate our own sense of delight into the world as a force which inspires others?
Leo is also connected to leadership and government. So these same things are happening at the level of our leaders. What are their motivations? How much trust do we have for them? And are they self-serving or focused on serving the people they are claiming to protect?
We also have Mercury, Jupiter and Venus together in Virgo right now. This grouping of planets is known as the Saraswati Yoga, and brings together our intelligence, wisdom and happiness. Its influence is to teach the ways of sharing our creativity and joy aligned with wisdom and higher teachings, and to use this process to grow and evolve into higher spiritual states.
A lot of energy that can connect you to creativity, inspiration and the opportunity to focus on your own hopes and dreams and inspire others through them. There is also the invitation to see and heal the fears and insecurities that have kept us from pursuing more inspired actions and expressions. And to also look at what we are projecting into others and our leaders so we can learn to discriminate irrational fear from clear perceptions of what and who we are dealing with.
So, again I ask: What do you love most in the world? What brings you the most peace? And how can you radiate that into the world?
What has most gotten in the way of pursuing your inspirations, hopes and dreams? And how can you clear those obstacles out and step into a higher level of creative self expression in the world?
What are you noticing with yourself and in the people around you?
