Following the recent Total Lunar eclipse on July 28th, we continue to be blessed with celestial movement and gifts from the cosmos. These heavenly bodies continue to navigate our journey as they reveal our destiny within the dancing stars. Many feel exhausted with the struggle to stay focused and maintain balance in these intense energies of change on our beloved Earth, so make an extra effort this month to find stillness and do something to nurture you. This is a phenomenal time on Mother Earth if we keep our heart light shining bright and do not allow ourselves to be distracted by outside influences. I am sharing this month not only how to work with these energies but a reminder of the retrograding planets. We will have 6 in retrograde for a period of time before Mars and Mercury move forward towards the end of the month plus the additional impact of Chiron known as the Wounded Healer.
August 8th – Lions Gate and the next wave of light transmissions
A New Planetary Year commenced on the 26th of July, following the “Day out of Time” on the 25th and began to send a higher frequency of light to illuminate areas in our life that need our forgiveness. The Lion Portals began to open, and a new time spiral began. After the fall of Atlantis and then the abuse of power and loss of integrity in Ancient Egypt the connection to the Sacred Lion Portals and the Sacred Lion energy was lost. Our human consciousness was cut off from the star knowledge and what had once been spirals of time now became timelines locking us into illusion and ego-based manipulation from fear. The Lion’s Gate opening occurs every year between July 26th and August 12th assisting in raising the collective consciousness of humanity to eventually bring us back into full knowledge of our star origin.
The energy is the highest on August 8th when the portal opens fully, allowing the next wave of celestial light to enter into our earth plane realm. If we keep our personal vibration high and remain centered, we are given the opportunity to create within the sacred spirals of time and manifest once again. In this “TWO” year we are passing through the pillars of the past and future to create in the immediate now and will be given the codes to higher levels of creation. This New Time Spiral will give you the opportunity to create and manifest your dreams. Many of you have felt major changes since the Lion’s Gate of 2017, in your work, service, relationships and even your identity feeling a sense of confusion and lack of direction. This has been an intense process of “letting go” in order to position you to stand tall in a new place from which you will birth your new earth dream. At the time of the Lion’s Gate, the brightest and most powerful Wave of Light yet to embrace the Earth, will be experienced in the Sacred Year of 2018/19. I will be adding an audio meditation to assist one in preparing and working with the Royal Lion Guardians for those who are members of our online subscription series in the next few days.
I wanted to share a review of the planets in Retrograde as we move through the Lion’s Gate and stabilize the Eclipse Cycle. August 7, 2018, Uranus turns retrograde and at that point we have six planets in retrograde. When a planet is Retrograde it’s energy becomes more inward. During this inward phase, we have the opportunity to review or reflect on our ‘inner-self’ as it relates to the past. The past maybe this life or could relate to a previous incarnation. What we inwardly work with during the retrograde period will depend on what the planet energetically rules,
Uranus turns Retrograde on August 7, 2018
Open mindedness and flexibility will lead to creative breakthroughs if one chooses to embrace the essence of Uranus. With Uranus, ‘expect the unexpected’. Uranus is unpredictable and requires original and out of the box thinking. Uranus is freedom loving and you will be asked to review your life and how you are living it. Take the opportunity during Uranus retrograde to explore inwardly what freedom means to you and what you need to change to be an expression of freedom.
NEW MOON Solar Eclipse – August 11th
This is a night of powerful intentions to be grounded in sacred ceremony. The New Moon is in Leo and still under the influence of the Lion’s Gate portal. For those who are members of our online subscription series, I will be posting a New Moon Ritual to allow you to celebrate the essence of this night of manifestation.
Mercury goes direct on August 19th
The planet of communication and decision making, if used for your highest good provides an opportunity to reevaluate your dreams and recalibrate the direction you are going which has been illuminated with the recent eclipse. Mercury began its retrograde cycle as the Lion Portal began to open. Do not make life changing decisions during this time, instead gather information, gather tools and go inward to commune with your divine self.
Mars Goes direct on August 27th
The energy will intensify with a final wave as we integrate the eclipse cycle. It can at times feel as if you are paddling upstream, endless delays, roadblocks, setbacks and detours around every corner. Mars is a warrior planet and will reveal internal anger. To work with this energy, look at delays with a different perspective and seek to understand how these delays are really serving you. Don’t force anything. If it doesn’t flow it is not meant to happen at this time. Take that energy and focus on what is working.
Neptune is still retrograding until it turns direct on November 24th
When Neptune is retrograde, focus more on your dreams, listen to your intuition and pursue more creative endeavors. During Neptune retrograde, turn inward and be receptive to the truth. Illusion is exposed and reality becomes clear. You are encouraged to pursue your spiritual development by being committed to daily practices that bring the mind into stillness such as meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, forest bathing, crystal gazing. Find ways to quiet the mind and go within to hear the voice of your own heart. Neptune rules self-sacrifice, victimization, false accusation, scandal and slander. When in retrograde, we tap deeper into the memory of what we hold in our unconsciousness regarding persecution, false judgment, self pity, betrayal, scandal and guilt. All comes up for review and the Total Lunar Eclipse has now brought it more clearly into our consciousness to see where our patterns originate.
Pluto began its retrograde cycle on April 22 and ends on September 30th
Pluto encourages us to establish boundaries and speak truth. Focus on this internal question… “Am I living my life from a place of joy the way I AM intended to live, or am I living my life fulfilling the expectation of others?” Go deeper and ask.. “Is this true or is it my perception that these are the expectations of others?” You may be surprised when you find the truth and the creation of those beliefs.
Saturn continues its Retrograde cycle until September 6th.
Saturn is the Lord of Karma and when it is in retrograde, it provides a time when our karma is sorted out. Karma is a form of energy that is very real. Past, present, and future blur into one. The lessons associated with Saturn retrograde relate to your thoughts and words. Our words can empower or disempower someone so pay close attention to how you use your words. With the opening of the Lion’s Gate we have an opportunity to review how we have used our words and how we have been influenced with the words of others.
August 26th/27th Full Moon in Pisces
With all the celestial activity and being asked to step into your grandness you have been pushed and expanded in all areas of your life. You may feel overwhelmed by the enormity of what lies ahead. Just embrace it as you have all that you need. It is only when you see yourself less than the Goddess herself that you separate from the source of power that is available to you. This is a moon to fully embrace the dream you carry and allow yourself to be rejuvenated by the celestial waters of the Goddess. Take the intentions you set during the New Moon Solar Eclipse and energize them with beauty, love, inspiration, gratitude and and excitement. A Pisces full moon allows us to access our most creative, imaginative and intuitive self through our emotional bodies. We are called to dream and envision from our inner sacred temples of light, as we activate the dragon heart. A Pisces full moon will illuminate our spiritual journey after the cycle of breaking down our illusions. Our world has changed forever, and we can only now step forward. I will be posting a Full Moon Ritual and guided audio meditation later this month to support the full integration of this night for those who are members of our online subscription series.
As we move through August, enjoy the ride, dance with the stars, hold gratitude in your heart for these amazing gifts from the universe.
