We’re entering the darkest phase of the Moon now right before the Solar Eclipse on Thursday. We’re at yet another fated choice point in our life as the Nodes get set off by Saturn. Are we ready to let go of our addictions and delusions and move towards that which brings true magic and healing into our lives on a daily basis? In fact, the operative word right now is healing. Self-care is no longer a luxury but an imperative with both the upcoming Mercury Retrograde in Virgo (starts Tuesday), the Jupiter in Virgo finale plus our big Thursday eclipse hitting the same degree (9) as the Mars-Saturn conjunction on the 24th of August. Pay close attention to the details and the players who show up in your movie over the next few weeks to make sure you’re on the right path. Some might be ghosts from the past and some might be angels sent from the future. Either way, decisions must be made to get us into greater alignment with our true dharma (Path).
Jupiter, Mercury and Venus continue to oppose Chiron in Pisces right now. It’s time to crack the core complex once and for all. You know, that wound which keeps you locked in habitual, self-sabotaging patterns that you swore “never again” a thousand times over. The victim complex, the abandonment wounds, the deep rejection complex and any ensuing addictions with love, substances or otherwise that have not allowed us to experience our true freedom and potential are up for major healing over the next month with the two Virgo-Pisces eclipses. It takes 40 Days to break any pattern and create deep alchemical change in our psyches. Join me, for the next Project 40 devoted to healing our Chironic wounds. It starts right on the New Moon Solar Eclipse this Thursday, September 1st, so there is still a little bit of time to jump in. We’ve already got an amazing private circle of people from all over the world joining together to support and inspire one another. You can join us here:
