Pushing the Reset Button: Lunar and Solar Eclipse

The last three days have been unsettled for me. I don’t feel at home in my home. I am exploring significant career changes. Everything feels connected and disconnected at the same time.

Not surprisingly, this is part of preparing for some large astrological events. This month has both a lunar August 7) and solar eclipse (August 21). It’s a pretty big month for energy work.

“Think of it as a reset button on your life and give yourself grace and ease if feelings of dissolution or confusion set in. You may be experiencing a complete dissolution of everything you know yourself to be, or may be embodying a new archetype of personality with your family and friends that you have never been associated with before. This is a time for reevaluation and soul karmic clearing. This is the universe’s way of having you redefine the way you see yourself and interact with the world around you, as you.”-Collective Evolution

I am preparing two rituals. For August 7, I will be working on a reflection of how I am serving the bigger picture. I will be exploring how I align with my deeper values in service to higher conscuousness.

For August 21, I will be focused on the self as an empty vessel, a blank page. I will be offering myself to serve in the highest and best way to benefit all.

Neither of these are new exercises but syncing up with greater energy brings more fireworks to it. I will be asking for a visual symbol to help me carry this month’s work forward.


Lunar Eclipse Chewed Me Up and Spit Me Out…Improved


“Lunar Eclipse* Full Moon in Libra illuminates the shadows and reveals the energetic wounds in our hearts in our relationships to Self and Others. With gentle loving acceptance, it’s time to hold space for it all as we continue to choose love.” Mystic Mama

That says it all, really, about this incredibly powerful energy.  I have had 5 friends describe how they have been torn apart this month, purged and rebuilt. I am no different.

My primary lessons this eclipse were:
– respect and love for myself
– facing spiritual ego
– manifesting abundance
– opening my heart

I was pounded. Tested on all fronts. 

Death. Judgement by strangers. Cleaning up other people’s messes and saying No More. Manifesting unexpected abundance by releasing shame. Deep connection and loving relationship.  Fear of trusting and being hurt. Defending my ego identity as Spiritually Accomplished.

I had my sense of Self sliced apart.

All in 7 days. All. In. 7. Days.

And you know what? My gratitude for this is boundless. I wouldn’t change a minute of it. I was pushed back into truth over and over. I let go of the intensity of one moment because the next wave was seconds away from crashing over me. I didn’t hold on, even to judge myself.

I am the Bionic Woman of spirituality…rebuilt better for having been broken and taken apart.
