Relentless releasing

When strong astro influences come along we can feel like crawling underneath a blanket and never coming out. Lunar Eclipses especially, when they hit your chart, can feel like a pressure cooker of intense emotional energy bubbling up within you, pulsing and expanding until you feel you are about to explode - and you may well have experienced some volatile explosions lately as this eclipse is part of a Grand Fire Trine - not to mention on top of 'don't label me/don't box me/don't restrict me/i need freedom!' Uranus! 

These releases can feel relentless and 'too much', but ultimately we are being called to shed so much of what has been covering and clouding our eyes, minds and hearts. We are being called to see ourselves as we really are: free of old wounds and outdated beliefs, and to let go of these wounds and beliefs once and for all. As part of that process, our wounds and beliefs will flare up big time, becoming magnified, for the purpose of us addressing them and clearing them once and for all. 

This is happening personally and collectively, globally and politically. Our awakening process is not something you do in your spare time after work, it is 24/7, and it is happening in one way or another to all on this planet at this time. It is playing out as activism, it is playing out as resistance, it is playing out as chaos and violence, it is playing out as greater calls for peace and justice. It is playing out in billions of ways, some difficult and some fabulous, but know that it is happening and that's a good, long-awaited thing. 

How are you all feeling?

  1. Optimistic... yet sad, too. Kind of like a wide-open heart ache for others.

  2. I used those exact words last week, saying I felt as though I was a pressure cooker. Definitely feeling a build up and trying very hard to keep my cool. But I know it's part of the process but phew!!

  3. This one aspects several planets/angles in my progressed and natal chart. I think it is interesting because the closest aspect is lunar eclipse conjunct my progressed venus (1 degree orb), life has been anything but indulgent and harmonious lately! ;)

    Work has been abnormally hectic for months (tr uranus is moving through my 10th house, south node conjunct is my natal mercury). I just keep reminding myself that this too shall pass! :D

    1. Aries Introvert, I often interpret Venus as representing our sense of self-worth and self-value, (which often shows up most clearly in our financial situation and love relationships, as well as how we treat ourselves, what we allow ourselves to receive be it self-care, or care from others, and it can be about how we show ourselves to the world via dress etc) so it may be worth looking at the lunar eclipse effect from that perspective.

  4. Physically I am unbelievably bloated, feeling tired (which is not new) but also like I want to cry or maybe throw up. The point at which Mercury went retrograde is right opposite my Sun at 3' Taurus conjunct Moon at 4'. This eclipse is happening 1' conjunct my DSC and opposite my ASC at 16' Libra conjunct my natal Saturn at 17' Libra. Suffice it to say I am feeling this one.

    Emotionally and in terms of releasing old imprints, what's up for me is needing to disconnect from survival fears passed down through familial belief systems and societal power structures. I've known about this wound and have been circling around it for years but have never been able to truly release it so far. I guess this is the time to do so and I quit my job a little over a month ago but it is terrifying and painful to actually feel these things. And there's still a part of my mind that doesn't believe this ascension process is even real, after 7+ years of consciously working on it! But I think the reason for that is that there is a part of me emotionally that still believes I can't be freed/healed and that I don't deserve happiness, fulfillment, God's love, etc. So I know this mentally but until the emotional side is healed it still manifests and unpleasant reality for me. Trying to do judgment releases etc and just allow the ancient feelings to flow out, which is tough when they're so physical. Thanks for the update. :-)

    1. Ava, wow this is a huge emotional healing eclipse for you! I'm feeling to say when you go to bed tonight just surrender all of that to the moon, and open up to releasing all that is ready to go! x

  5. Hi Dana, I feel fantastic! I've been working through a lot of stuff. Deep baggage I'd call it. The real heavy stuff that I've been functioning with all my life and now see why I couldn't create what I truly desired for myself. How could I with that heavy load of lies and illusions I believed about myself. I'm seeing myself through new eyes. I love it. I'm shedding the old me so quickly now. Blessings and Love to you and your readers.
