Ask Astrid Fridays ~ The Rabbit’s Corner: Eclipse Season of Change is Upon Us
Astrid never ceases to amaze me with her messages of reflection and energetic embodiment. Take a look at her latest symbol she manifested on her fur and how perfectly it reflects the upcoming Eclipses. In particular, it’s an exact duplicate of the Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse of June. I wasn’t able to get a photo of Astrid’s back yet, but she actually has two smaller circles on her spine that just started to develop too, with this much more defined and dramatic circle on her side. The two smaller ones feel to be reflective of the Lunar Eclipses.
June and July are home to a series of three Eclipses – two Lunar and one Solar. The first appearing on June 5th with a Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, which will open up a flow of energy through Galactic Center. The second Lunar Eclipse is in Capricorn on July 5th that will continue to add transformational Earth energies for the collective.
Then we have the Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse aligning with Summer Solstice. For many time zones it will be the day after, on June 21st, but for Pacific Time zone people, like myself, it will actually fall on the Solstice of June 20th at 11:41 pm for our wedding evening.
With each of these Eclipses we can bank on some dramatic shifts and shift-potentials within and without that may speed up what has felt in slow-motion, but may also seem surprising when in fact they’ve been changes messaging us for a very long time that have hit the tipping point.
So, indeed, things in our lives can receive a heightened illuminating quality within and without where we may have illusions revealed and our perspectives altered. It’s definitely a point of loving release and mourning for the old stories and experiences, as we embark on the possibilities of new beginnings.
Astrid sheds light on this time and calls to attention the importance and value of bringing spirit and heart back into your work and life.
You’ll always have things in the way and always have many reasons why certain things aren’t possible, including why peace can’t be your everyday experience within all of it.
She reminds us that the stories we tell ourselves and keep replaying, are what we wear like energetic imprints on our skin that radiate out to the Universe, and draw in like beacons, what we really want more of.
She and I have both been feeling the collective ebbs and flows of stress, confusion, impatience, frustration, worry, and inability to see or feel clearly circulating around. It’s not easy to find peace in waters like those, but it’s a state of being we can choose to create more of, from the inside out.
That’s the way it works. Not having things on the outside change or be a certain way to experience peace, but to know that peace is something no one can take away from us because it’s within. Surrender, unconditional detachment, openness, and compassion are part of the path to peace.
It’s the same with anything we want to create….it begins within, here and now, and not at any romanticized moment.
I think that if we are honest with ourselves we can discover the value and importance we place on things by how much time and energy we spend in each of them.
Astrid asks if you’ve been feeling stressed, how much time are you actually putting aside to create more peace? How much of the stressful things do you find your self worth somehow tied into?
Spiral traps are hard to step out of, but with commitment you can. Astrid is holding a gentle, but grounded embodiment of peace to anchor and support each of us to navigate and cross those waters within. She reflects our potential doorways through these astrological alignments upcoming.
Most of the messages that Astrid and I both keep receiving, seem to keep recycling back around.
Why? Because we seem to keep needing to hear things over and over and over in different ways and on different days, until the alignment within takes hold. It’s something I do with myself, too, and recognize that it isn’t always enough to hear something once. It isn’t enough to read it, listen to it, or be around it in blaring ways….it becomes enough when we’ve actually embodied it.
Astrid calls us to decide on what we want to stand firm in and to commit to creating new stories that will be more effective beacons to draw in what we do really want.
She has “become’ the Eclipse energies to more effectively drop into what it means for herself and to beam it out for the collective as a constant, mirrored reminder.
She asks us to look at everything with different perspectives.
For instance, what if your obstacles are designed gifts to guide and support you to be who you really are? They’re not designed to sabotage you.
Everything is a supportive tool to support you into your highest version of you. And this continues to evolve and will need tweaking and reinventing, with every different level of experience you want to continue to have. It’s a consistent flow of energy in motion that never ceases to move and become stagnant.
I love that Astrid always uses opportunities to message me personally and the collective. As mentioned, with our upcoming wedding on the 20th within hours of the New Moon Solar Eclipse, I’m definitely understanding and anchoring into more of what this life change is about to create and trickle forth. And in the days leading up, I’ve been focused on reviewing and refining, upgrading and reinventing the next version of life I would like to experience.
Astrid is integrating what all of the changes mean for her, too, and is preparing for her next version she’ll be actively embodying and partnering in.
Who wants to join us in breaking the wheel and reinventing a new way?
