Making it Happen– Using the New Moon Solar Eclipse to Your Advantage

After a tumultuous couple of weeks, the stars are aligning for us to create new beginnings and transform our lives. I don’t know if you have felt it, but the last few weeks for me have encompassed many surprises and delays. With Mercury retrograde and the full moon eclipse making sure we are all on the path of our highest truth, I went deep within my heart to define how I want to feel in my life. My hope is you have, too. Now with the new moon eclipse upon us today, we are about to step into action and transform our lives!

When the sun and the moon join at the same degree during a new moon, it is time to start something new or break old patterns. Since this particular new moon is also an eclipse at zero degrees of Scorpio, the Scorpio moon and sun want us to reveal to ourselves any secrets or self-directed shame we are harboring. (Yup, we are still working on our shadow.) The idea here is to embrace radical honesty within so we can create the space needed to conjure and create our highest potential. From there, we will find clear skies to go after what it is we most want, and give it our all.

Liberate your secrets, ladies.

Tell the truth. Get it out. No one is here to judge or blame you. Tell the truth about how you feel, what you want, and what you fear. Admit to yourself where you feel embarrassed, held back, and denied. Then, make a pact with yourself to step up and make the changes you most desire. (I am personally excited to do this myself!)

Not only will the sun and the moon join at the same degree in Scorpio at the time of the eclipse, but so will Venus. Holy alignment… With Venus, the planet of love, harmony, sensuality, and pleasure joining the party too, the Universe wants us to embrace our deepest values and truth. Simultaneously, this is all happening in a supportive angle to Mars. YES!

The Universe is aligned to support our breakthrough. It’s up to us to break through!

It’s time to give it what ya’ got.

Starting today and for the next week, we are in a potent time to work on our understanding of ourselves and of the world around us, and get into action on behalf of our goals. Concrete steps, massive declarations, and radical action abound. You can do it. The power of this new moon eclipse is off the charts, and I urge you to use it – fully!

Now is the time to embrace your truth—to say how you feel and get raw with yourself about what you want. To soften the potential intensity of this, we have Venus here to help. So do this with love, kindness, and self-compassion! It is time.

When we are harboring feelings of shame or ill will towards ourselves, it interferes with what we hold possible in our lives and the lives of others. Regardless of what is happening in our lives right now, we can shape our experience of it through our perception. The key ingredient to making this happen is self-compassion.

According to Kristin Neff, a leading expert on mindful self-compassion, self-compassion means giving our self a break, accepting our imperfections, and mindfully loving ourselves with kindness.

Remember, the way we perceive the world – our interpretation – determines how we experience the world. The same is true in our relationship with our self.

This week, as the moon slips between the earth and the sun creating a partial solar eclipse, we are being provided an opportunity to initiate new beginnings. The influence of Scorpio here is urging us to reveal our secrets and unveil (if only to ourselves) the honest-to-goddess-truth about what is happening in our lives with loving kindness. The upside is, as we do this, we create space for new beginnings to take hold.

This new moon is a positive, fresh start that will likely bring gifts. It’s time to meet the universe halfway and say YES, I’m ready!

Your homework!

Set aside some time this week to journal. Ask yourself how you are feeling. Allow yourself the time you need to access your feelings. Emotionally purge everything that you are fearing, hiding, or wanting. Do an emotional brain dump.

Once you feel complete, take out a clean slate of paper and begin to write out your intentions for this new moon. The best intentions are those that come straight from the heart. Write until you feel your bone-shaking-complete-truth move through you. Stay with the writing process until you feel complete. After which, release your intentions and emotions into the universe with loving kindness, and embrace the beauty that already exists within and all around you.

I can’t wait to see what blossoms and blooms over the next six months for all of us! Exciting things await. I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment and let me know what you are conjuring this new moon.

As always, I send you my love!
