What an Eclipse portal this has BEEN, near twilight zone-ish. The passing weeks have been tinged with a distinct shift in the collective from what I have perceived. Even if we are still experiencing some of the same “motions” and “habits” the energy contained within such doings feels changed to us.
I’d like to think it’s because many of us showed up for the darkness that we were called upon to explore at length over the past few years that brought much of life to a standstill in a way. And now we are finally seeing some space open up on the peripherals of things. Of course - the energy is still dense and there is a seriousness because there is always more to dig up - more to uncover - more truths that lie in the shadow - this process is never really over is it…
Yet something is different. Today that Gillette commercial came online to the collective consciousness and it caused a damn STIR. This commercial stood to “call out” toxic masculinity in our society and essentially “call in” those who see truth to programming running.
Something that can be so wonderful about the internet is that it can clearly show us what energy people are running, a decent amount of their beliefs, and what their triggers are. Does it tell all? No of course not…but it shows what gets people in a damn tizzy - and that’s cool because it gives us more of an opportunity to CLEAR. THAT. SHIT. This is the power of Aquarius energy - a solar season that has likely started by the time you’re reading this (Jan 20th).
So why do I love that this commercial came out towards the middle of this portal? Well this Lunar Eclipse in Leo is the culmination of about 2 years worth of work, cycles, triggers, responses. Life always happens in various cycles - a particular theme will arise in the collective and in the personal and be the thing we are working through, healing, understanding…clearly. It’s wise to look back to about Feb 2017 to see what cycle you noticed start around then - what journey came online for you?
Collectively - we have been starting toxic masculinity DOWN - so it makes sense something as BIG as this was finally being tackled my a mainstream, well known brand and not just a story on the news. There’s something about BRANDS making a statement that get’s people paying attention in a different way than if it were some politician or even individual artist where the energy is somewhat more “focused”. Even if it’s not “really” - this is how it is perceived. Especially because politics had been so hush hush for a while and even artists causing a stir is more of a “personal” taste/style thing.
But Suddenly when a brand that serves MANY has something to say - it reaches more people that use them - and therefore there’s a major self reflection there across the board.
This commercial also made it clear that this talk about toxic masculinity is FINALLY having some kind of impact. We all would like to say this shit doesn’t matter - a brand - a razor etc etc it’s not important - it’s capitalism and capitalism is the devil and spiritual people should know that and not pay attention to it. But here me out - what if this IS THE SHIFT? Or A MAJOR component of the shift.
I’ve been saying this for a while now - the whole thing doesn’t HAVE to be destroyed, anarchy is NOT the best option. It seems like we just want to wipe out the old programming and use the resources of the structures already in place (with some tweaks) to be FAR MORE EFFECTIVE, EQUAL AND HEALTHY.
I started to see that for my own self this week when I realized I had some similar habits and responses to situations (this may eventually change) BUT the essence of the energy filtering through them felt different than before.
I started to see - we already have so much in place there - and we are alchemizing new infusions to pulsate through them.
So what does this have to do with a Leo energy in particular? Leo is the sign of Creative Self Expression. Many associate its essence with that of entertainers for the Joy they bring, the inspiration they cultivate, the romance they bring to life - and we know how much entertainment can influence us through all it’s emotive ability.
Entertainment is not “fluff” - these places we gather to enjoy something - can be places to deliver profound messages too. We started to really question the messages we were sending through our entertainment spaces and clearly - something is starting to change and trickle through all the walls, systems and structures.
We have this Leo Lunar Eclipse culmination coupled with our Jupiter in Sagittarius transit helping us broadcast beliefs and philosophies to the masses. We even have the numerous Capricorn transits at work here too - the modern archetype of the patriarchy is sitting right at the top of the line - under our extra large microscope.
And funny enough Capricorn is also a sign associated with Fame and Infamy because of how “public” it is. Perhaps we are all having the question of “What do we want to be truly infamous for?” pop up. What deeds do we want to be aligned with?
It seems like, in some way, everyone wants to be known for being true to their creative self expression, stand up for their beliefs AND likely wants to be know for their ability to put ego or fame aside to change accordingly when a set up is no longer working or just not “right” - not sending the “right” message anymore. At least - that is what I HOPE!
✨ 🌙 LUNAR ECLIPSE ASPECTS🌙✨
Now that we’ve got that message shared and through. Let’s talk the influences of the aspects surrounding the days of this Lunar Eclipse - there are many!
First of all this is a Total Lunar Eclipse and Super Moon (it will appear larger to us due to it’s closer proximity to Earth). Much of the US will be able to see in it’s full Blood Moon glory overnight on Sunday night into Monday. Yes it’s going to appear red in the nighttime sky. This is also known as the Wolf Moon in Native American cultures - we know animals are deeply attuned to the natural goings on of Earth & Space.
We know that this Full Moon is different in both appearance and energy. What a reflection we will be gifted with.
Considering that the Lunar Eclipse falls at 0º of Leo - this enhances that archetype - it’s the START of that sign and those first few degrees are fresh and pure Leo fire. We are going to really reflect upon what we have Created in our Life, any Joy or Sorrow, any recreational activities that have become lifelines to our vitality and emotive ability.
IF you’ve slacked in that department (::raises hand::) this may be that final push (or shove) needed to actual start the fire that gets that shit going - it might feel like we will DIE if we don’t create something to get our expressions OUT.
🌙 LEO FULL MOON OPPOSING AQUARIUS SUN
The Full Moon sits opposite the Aquarius Sun. Aquarius is the sign of Collective Consciousness, Innovation, Eccentricity, Liberation. I feel like I say this every time we have a Leo/Aquarius event: Express Yourself so that Other Likeminded People Can See You, Find You, Love You, and Create a Liberating Force and Momentum Together! We are powerful on our own yes - but having epic support systems will take things to the next level of collective consciousness too. And we REALLY need that shift in consciousness so that we can transcend some deeply ingrained bullshit.
🌙 LUNAR ECLIPSE SQUARE URANUS in ARIES
The Lunar Eclipse will make a challenging square to Uranus in Aries - this is the major aspect that this lunation makes. Now Uranus sits in the very last degrees of Aries (moves back into Taurus in March!) - so that means Leo and Aries are not signs that traditionally square each other - but for this lunation the margin is SO CLOSE of a few degrees here that this aspect is potent. Not only that but Uranus is the modern day ruler of Aquarius.
Another thing I’ve often said for Uranus in Aries: individuality for the sake of humanity! We are closing out a period of identifying how individual we all are and how we have different needs and desires and how our collective system needs to accommodate that much more efficiently if we want to survive and we don’t want to be ruled in a bad way by technology.
Speaking of technology - be careful not the social media internets - Uranus rules this area of our lives and can provoke some “in my feels” internet spats and misunderstandings if we aren’t prepared to really walk the talk or are easily flustered by kick back. Depending upon how you’re feeling - you may either be expressing the fuck out of yourself via social media OR you may need a full break from it this weekend or into next week.
So the influence of this Square…well Uranus is unpredictable. Any astrological aspect made between two planets can be utilized for ill or for well and it really depends upon how we show up for it to the best of our ability.
This energy is bound to create some volatile energy surrounding the Eclipse - so this really is a Full Moon on steroids. Uranus when linked to the Moon creates unpredictable shifts in our moods, they may rapidly shift, our mental activity is going to be very stimulated thanks to the technologically advanced energy of Uranus shocking our internal, and likely external electrical systems. It may feel like there are some earthquakes going on. Lunar Eclipses that are as intense as this one do have a tendency to be coupled with Earth events/ natural disasters - but it may just feel like all that grounded energy coming in through the Capricorn stellium is shaky.
We are being shown where we need better foundations. Perhaps there’s a leak making things weak. Maybe something burrowed in and is throwing the balance off. Or maybe we just need the extra energy shaken off and the way we do that is by being surprised, shocked…awakened.
Be aware that Lunar Eclipse “big changes” can unfold over a few months time - we may have yet to be surprised, or receive unexpected something or others, or find ourself being sparked by…unusual joys and pleasures. Meet this energy head on by making a change instead of waiting to be forced into one (it need not be a huge change! The idea is just to converse with it on your own volition as the free willed human you are).
Energetically this aspect can make things rattled, unsettling, and restless. So you’ll likely want to move your body and express anger. Leo and Aries are fire signs after all and can burn us up from the inside creating headaches, heart burn and heart palpitations if left to consume us. If you’re sensitive - be aware of these bodily sensations and take care of yourself.
Drink water, sweat it out, drink water, sweat it out. Etc. Etc (but be CAREFUL - and don’t overdo it). If you’re unable to move around too much - def focus on breath work and being more present with this amazingly voluntary and involuntary body mechanism. You can also light candles to be surrounded by flame energies safely.
🌙 FULL MOON TRINE CERES in SCORPIO
The other Aspect happening is that the Full Moon will make a graceful trine to Ceres whom is in the very last degrees of Scorpio. Ceres is the Great Earth Mother Goddess Asteroid whom reveals to us our relationship to abundance/loss, life/death and nourishment/lack of care. In Scorpio she has been doing double work in exploring our relationship to something in our lives dying and working through some deeper shadow work we have around what we are attached to. This subtle trine works to support the taking care of ourselves bit through these epic times of evolution, expression and transformation.
We are doing work whether we want to “see” that our not - productivity is taking place on the material and immaterial realms and we need to try and nourish ourselves through that - to find our what we need to bounce back from tragedy or trauma, make it through, come out stronger. She also makes it clear that it IS important to nurture our creativity without apology and to full own the power of creativity.
She also brings the theme of the Feminine right to the forefront as she is such a Moon like and Venus force. We are being called to invoke the wisdom of feminine energy - the knowingness of cycles, of nature, of emotions, of subtle forces, of unspoken things, of what can only be felt, of intuition. It’s as if she’s there asking us to take it deeper as this Blood Moon Eclipse falls eerily upon us - a sight to behold for all it’s beauty and fury.
We will want to partake in the exchange of emotions, we will want to nurture others by letting them know - we are HERE with them, for them. It will feel good to share our stories of pain, grief, and yes even unconditional love and joy - to truly bond in the totality of the human experience.
✨ OTHER ASPECTS ✨
Venus & Jupiter conjoined in Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces. Venus & Jupiter join together exactly on Jan 22nd which will likely be a welcome day following this Eclipse as it is highly hopeful, expansive and wants to bring in the pleasure and adventurous horizons. It wants to bring in the big love. So yes even though these two square Neptune in Pisces - energy of all the existential feels - there will be great potential for creativity, for imagination, for artists and for expressing our very very sensitive tender feels in bigger ways than before. If you’re seeing clearly - this is a beautiful moment of vulnerability and expression and even romance.
If you’re not seeing clearly, and something feels off - make sure you’re expressing this energy in a way that is more about you and getting to know yourself as opposing to making proclamations of love or setting off on some grandiose adventure without thinking. Jupiter and Neptune can create delusions of grandeur in some instances and even breakdowns because of how BIG & urgent everything feels.
Mars in Aries will square Saturn in Capricorn. This is one that will ask for us to temper our sense of haste, urgency and instinct gratification with our long term commitments, patience and ambitions. What is it that is inspiring us, motivating us, getting us into action? How is it aligned (or not) with these bigger goals?
Mercury in Capricorn will square Uranus in Aries. These two are the ones that could be creating restless thinking, nervous thinking, future tripping in all the worst ways, and even feelings of not having what it takes to make it. Thankfully Mercury travels fast and will be moving in Aquarius in a few days so this is very temporary. None the less try soothing this energy by writing down some of the stuff you are thinking so it’s out of your brain. And know that not every depressing thought is a real one. I highly recommend watching this Gigi Young Youtube video where she says something like “The pain we feel, the torment our brain puts us through that creates sadness, anxiety, grief, and depression is because our soul knows that it’s not true and is sad for us.” Or at least that’s how I heard it. Watch here: https://youtu.be/41t9JqNSZ1M. It’s called Healing & Spirit.
Okay babes that is what I’ve got for you this Lunar Eclipse.
I hope you all make it through these next few weeks of integrations with the energy breakthroughs you’ve been waiting for. Also note that we have NO major RETROGRADE PLANETS coming for us until March - so February is likely to come with some more waves of movement for us.
