Astrologically speaking, this summer we've been opening our palms, shrugging our shoulders, rolling a few eyes, and doing our best to go with the flow. Talk about a turbulent energetic summer! Blue moons, eclipses, everything in retrograde (including our relationships, technology, and temperament), an over all multi-transitional experience
August's Super New Moon - named as such for sharing space with a partial solar eclipse - has built upon the energy thus far. This New Moon is one to take a prolonged pause and really decide what doors you want to open for you now that you've made it through the whirlwind that was the summer so far. You've got cosmic energy behind you, beneath you, surrounding you, above you.
The questions then fall into your very capable hands: What do you want to do with this energy? Where do you want to call in more joy, abundance, connection, success, or peace? What seeds would excite you if they planted, sprouted, and blossomed over the next month? Really feel into these questions and allow your body and soul's wisdom to arise.
The thing is, moonbeam, you have everything you need. And in cosmic speak, the universe owes you a win. Spend some time really thinking about what you want. Oh, and don't be alarmed if you get faced with a little more discomfort this moon cycle. We are still in eclipse season, after all. Go get it.
As one of our astrological expert friends noted about this full moon, "things are about to get weird." We are entering into a moon cycle that is going to bring up emotion and serendipity from every direction. The strange-ness of this cycle is for our highest good ultimately, but the processes we each individually go through may be uncomfortable at times. This moon is a powerful one to remember that we are fully supported and taken care of. The random and the weird - circumstances, emotions, and thoughts - are actually there to help up expand.
As an archetype, the moon carries aspects of the feminine energy. Regardless of gender, feminine energy and lunar energy are often used synonymously and carry a more spherical or cyclical perspective. This energy leans into the ephemeral and it carries a deep trust in the unknown as well as the interconnectedness of all things. There is both elegance and patience innate to feminine energy.
However just like everything in nature, a need for balance exists. Feminine energy dances with masculine energy. The moon also has the capacity to inspire directness, action, linear thinking, and full honesty.
