We’re hungover from the eclipse energy. what do we do now?
We’re hungover from the eclipse energy. What do we do now?
To say that eclipse season shook us to our core would be an understatement. True, we know to strap on our seatbelts when lunar and solar eclipses hop on the roof… but damn. The polarities of the Taurean and Scorpionic energies have been playing tug-a-war with our lives. Taurus season wanted us to get to the root of what really matters: our family, the Earth and how we inhabit it, financial stability, and naturally, security and luxury. The Scorpio lunar eclipse energy felt like a funeral, in a way, forcing us to make amends with the past and say our goodbyes. To transmute and neutralize forces that have cast shadows of fear, negativity, shame or doubt. The past three eclipses have showcased what’s no longer working, and when we’re playing with our time and energy it can be hard to accept that a pivot is in order. These opposing energies make it increasingly difficult to balance. Like, are we growing or starting a new garden? And the last few months, it’s been up to you decide.
With Mercury Retrograde’s trickster vibes continuing their creep on us, Gemini season starts on May 20th, and confusion and uncertainty may be lingering in the air. I wanted to pull some cards for us this week focusing on the aftereffects of the eclipse energy.
Now that the dust is settling and we’re focusing on rebuilding and reimagining.. what now? My question for Spirit is this: “How do we move forward?”
La Lune + Forgiveness
La Lune, or the Moon, brings the element of mystery to us the next weeks ahead. Representing our emotional realm, this is still a temperamental time for us. Keep this in mind with your interactions with others. It’s the moon’s calling to shine a light on the unseen and subconscious. It digs up internalized emotions, situations that we’ve suppressed.
Forgiveness showing up for this reveals there’s been a lot of situations that we’ve internally caged, and it’s time to let them go. Read more about the act of forgiveness here to welcome the medicine and embrace those challenging moments. Forgiveness first requires acceptance of the situation, your role in it and the role of others.
“The true healing begins once we’re able to hold ourselves accountable for the power we’ve given others, our fears, or our trauma.”
Our intuition is sharp and psychic gifts are being cultivated, too. Pay attention to your dreams and write them down. A lot of us will also be getting downloads near or around water. Are you someone who gets the best ideas in the shower?
Mercury Retrograde merged with the Moon energy can indeed a recipe for confusion. Avoid overanalyzing and trying to make sense of things, things are still unfolding. Instead, observe from a neutral perspective much like a spectator watching a story of their own life. Feelings of confusion can easily impact our mental health, so please be aware of your mental landscape and how you’re feeling. If you’re being highly triggered this week, you may will need extra support. Please make that known to your support system, but also know that the astral energies are magnifying what already is. If you’re more of a logical type of person, these upcoming weeks may be a challenge as we’re invited to intuitively feel our way through.
It’s an ask from the Universe to trust ourselves, as well as trust our ability to communicate and be guided by unseen energy, Spirit, our guides, ancestors. Intuitive exercises will make it easier for you to navigate new terrain. The hardest part of intuitive connection is unwavering faith. Naturally, we question and doubt things that we can’t see with our eyes, but we’re asked to try.
The Moon also represents maternal energy. You may find motherhood wounds creeping up. The divine wants us to step in as our own source for nurturing and heal ourselves with compassion, empathy, sweetness and unconditional love. Show up as the mother you’ve always wanted or always wanted to be. If your relationship with your own mother, or mother figure, has been strained, there may be an opportunity for you both to be vulnerable and expressive, an apology may even be pulled out of of one of you.
Ride the waves this week, flex your intuition and practice gentle forgiveness the best you know how.
