There’s a lunar eclipse this week in the zodiacal signs of Sagittarius (the Moon) and Gemini (the Sun). Coming days after the 3rd square between revolutionary Uranus in Aries and transformative Pluto in Capricorn, it could boggle the mind and shake up dusty mental structures.
This full Moon energy can bring up old feelings and memories dealing with the experience of being taught to separate and categorize people, things and events without really knowing ourselves what that thing was. We accepted the category when we were too young to logically examine it, and perhaps we never got back to re-think it. This eclipse on the axis of the lower mind and the higher Mind focuses our attention on how we think and what we believe.

The cosmic gift of this eclipse is that the higher Mind offers us an opportunity to release outworn ideas and beliefs that no longer serve our life. Let them go with gratitude, for they got you here. But now we need to know our Truth, walk our Truth and live our Truth. It’s time to replace the old categories of knowledge with new ideas and new perceptions based on our awakened consciousness.
Think of all the labels we’ve been taught to put on people and things. Did we label them that way because we’ve had the experience of who or what they are, or were we taught a stereotype of who society says they are? Or perhaps you believe in your labels because of your ideals and your values. Either way, it never hurts to dust off our beliefs and look at our way of thinking about things. It’s important at this time to work consciously and conscientiously with our beliefs and our thoughts, since they create our reality. This lunar eclipse energy can help us become aware of behavior patterns based on faulty thinking and beliefs, so we can release old emotional body wounds we’ve continued to inflict on ourselves.
Try this: step back from your habitual way of thinking about something in your life, and examine the way you think about it. Then ask yourself, ‘Is this my real feeling about this or is it what I’ve been taught to think?’ Sometimes when we think we’re doing something helpful, it doesn’t turn out that way. Usually it’s because we’re doing what we think we should do, rather than doing what our gut is telling us to do. When they take opposite stands, follow your gut!
It's time to release ideas, beliefs and ideals that no longer serve you or Life.
