I love feathers and often find them on my walks through the redwood and tall sycamore trees in my neighborhood. It’s especially thrilling to find unique feathers, like these two. Feathers remind us of the Air element, representing intelligence, communication, sharing, networking, connections between people, places, and things.
At the moment, Mercury (ruler of Gemini and Virgo) is retrograde in Virgo. This is a reminder to check our communication skills. Are we saying what needs saying in a way that can be received and understood? Are we open to hearing things we may have missed in the past? Are we willing to reconsider our position on things that are not working well and make wiser choices that create greater understanding and flow. Are we able to look at that which has created clutter in our minds, computers and homes, and say enough is enough?
This is an excellent time for recognizing the stuck places and clearing the way for something desired but still unknown. There is a whole new world of opportunity available to us once we release our grip on what has been. You have nothing to lose but the stuff that has bogged you down. At the very least, you will have a clean desk. 😎
Post-Eclipse Sky – August 21, 2017, by Jodi Lilly
Happy Leo New Moon Eclipse!! The sky is arranged in a unique pattern, today, with Mars (the warrior) conjunction the North Node (destiny point) as well as the Sun and Moon (consciousness and our unconscious feeling level) in Leo, sign of Royalty, the Heart, and Love, symbolized by the King of the Jungle, the Lion.
There are some beautiful supportive alignments to these Leo planets and luminaries from Saturn (structure and discipline) and Uranus (revolutionary ideas and visionary breakthroughs), as well as Jupiter adding harmonious vibes to the mix from his position in Libra. These are just some of the elements making up today’s super-charged cosmic soup of initiatory energies available to us, as we set our intentions and focus our attention on creating the kind of life and world our hearts desire.
With Mars, as well as the Sun and Moon, flanking the North Node, and the Fire sign grand trines, this is a time for action. Follow through on your intentions. Pay attention to that which inspires and draws you forth. Release that which bogs you down. Mercury is still retro in Virgo, so don’t get too far ahead of yourself, but look toward what you desire and let go of that which is not aligned with that path, for you.
This is a new day! There is enormous creative potential available to each one who claims it and gives it form. This is an excellent day to make a list of New Moon intentions or create a vision board dedicated to your vision for your life going forward.
Enjoy this beautiful day, listen to your heart and follow your instincts for upleveling to a whole new world of possibilities!
