Hello lovely ones and welcome to August 2017 and eclipse season!
With the sun in fiery Leo for the month, a powerful Jupiter/Pluto aspect, a lunar and solar eclipse and Mercury Retrograde, all I can say is - expect the unexpected this month!
As we all know eclipse season brings the winds of change.
Soulstrology says that Jupiter square Pluto at the start of August indicates powerful transformation, good fortune and a rebirth of sorts is on the cards for many this month ahead.
Mercury retrograde as always can bring back the past, for healing and/or closure or for opportunity and a sweet new beginning.
Either way, change is the theme of August.
For some this change may be welcome, planned or long anticipated.
For others it may manifest as an abrupt, unseen or unwelcome ending.
Soulstrology says that whatever manifests for us this month is in divine cosmic order and that we must not only keep the faith that all is unfolding exactly as it ought to but also trust that the events of this month are for our highest good in the bigger picture of our destiny.
When we experience sudden change it often results in us freezing or being floored.
Or sometimes we fight against the direction of the winds, forcing ourselves to move against the natural rhythm of cosmic change, staggering and gasping for air as we do so.
Change isn't always welcome or easy and is often far from pleasant.
But it is the only constant.
This month whether you are experiencing welcome changes or have the rug pulled from underneath you, trust that your only job is to dance with the winds of change.
Dancing with the winds of change is to dance with your eyes closed as though no-one is watching.
Lose any self-consciousness, shut out external distractions, tune into your heart and dance to the rhythm of change with grace and joy, trusting you are being led to your destiny.
As always I will write detailed blogs for the Full Moon/Lunar eclipse and New Moon/Solar eclipse.
