appy eclipse season, soul fam! I hope you are ready to sizzle and blast off this summer, cuz things are gonna really be rocking over the next couple of months.
We are lucky enough to experience three consecutive eclipses this summer. Typically there are only two, so we are in for a real treat. The first is a partial solar eclipse (new moon) on July 13 in Cancer (universal time, it’ll be on the 12th in the Americas). Then, a total lunar eclipse (full moon) occurs on July 27 in Aquarius, and finally on August 11 we’ll enjoy another solar eclipse in Leo.
The overall theme of this eclipse season is life purpose. We are being called to step into our full potential and purpose in this lifetime. We came here with a purpose, a series of lessons, and for life to experience us, not the other way around. There’s no longer time or space in our lives for self-doubt or hiding.
It’s time to shine and share our gifts and trudge through our darkness to blast off into unimaginable bliss, happiness, and fulfillment.
The sky is lit af this summer and we are going to be challenged and called to grow through what we go through. Think self-accountability, self-love, and self-empowerment! Thank you universe for this opportunity to level UP!
Also think energy, uncertainty, spontaneity, abundance, clarity, fresh start, and radical self-improvement. It’s a balance, ya’ll.
Let’s dive into what all this means for you.
For starters, this year, 2018, is an 11 universal year, and also a 2 universal year. 11 is the Master Number of intuition, psychic connection, and manifestation. Backed by the loving vibration of 2, the number of partnership, compassion, and cooperation, you can bet your sweet ass that you are moving forward with intention and clarity this year—all of us.
And as we find ourselves midway through the year with a new moon landing on July 13 (universal time, it’ll be on the 12th in the Americas) we are really playing with some mystical and cosmic fire of life!
Additionally, for an eclipse to occur, the moon has to pass within 17 degrees of the north node (for the northern hemisphere). Nodes are a huge aspect of our lives and our life purpose on this planet. Knowing what your node is will be huge for you this eclipse season and is the ritual I am recommending you do for this summer’s eclipse season. And hello, this new moon’s north node is in LEO! Hot damn, talk about power and prowess energy!
Don’t know where your north node is in your natal chart? Never done your natal chart? Try it here—you’ll need it for the ritual below. You can also learn a TON about nodes in episode #19 of our radio show “Finding Your Life Purpose in Your Astro Chart” with Colin Bedel.
But it gets better … 13 (the day of the first eclipse) is also the number of the divine feminine. We experienced a new moon in June on the 13th as well so the energy of the moon is graciously but fiercely feminine and flowy. Cancer is also ruled by the moon, so the goddess vibes and feelings are prevalent across the board. This is perfect timing, thank you universe!
Are you feeling those feminine feels? Empathy, compassion, sensuality, motherhood, creativity, sensitivity? Allow yourself to feel it all. Allow all the emotions to wash over you.
With all this going on, and the July 13 new moon kicking off an incredible season of love and light and eradicating the darkness, July is literally one of the most transformative months of the year. This is a bang of a start into a new chapter in life.
New moons are a time to start anew, to plant seeds, and to fortify an existing foundation or lay a completely new foundation with clear intention and soul-centered desire.
With the cosmic energies palpable right now, ritual is a beautiful way to work with these vibes and amplify your life. Dive into eclipse season with this powerful ritual that holds the potential to entirely transform the way you live your life!
Eclipse Season Ritual
This eclipse season is going to call you to step up and own your power and purpose in this lifetime. If you haven’t discovered what your north node is, please do it here and then google both the zodiac sign and the house it is in.
This will give you tons of information about yourself and what you are here to achieve and overcome. Your south node won’t be listed on your natal chart, but it is the cardinal sign (exact opposite), so look directly across the chart to see what you’ve already mastered in previous lives and google that too. Thanks, Google!
Now that you have that information, dive into your journal, record a voice note of you talking through it, or grab a cosmic bestie who has your celestial back. Talk it out, reflect on your findings, and be 100 percent honest with yourself. There is nothing to be gained by holding back and playing small.
Journal Questions or Discussion Questions
- ⚬ Who am I, really?
- ⚬ What lights my soul on fire and fills me with creative energy and passion?
- ⚬ What are my greatest challenges in life currently (money, love, career, purpose, stability, etc)?
- ⚬ How can I master my north node? What steps do I need to take?
- ⚬ What have I learned from mastering my south node and where in my life do I see the fruits of that labor?
This clarity and self-awareness is going to be the foundation of everything that you are building upon during this fresh-start eclipse season and far into the future. It is time. You are ready. You can do this and learn how to master your north node and live in harmony!
Set Clear Intentions
Now write down your intentions for the entire eclipse season. What do you want to manifest? What do you want to grow in your life? How can you beter embody your north node purpose? How can you evoke more passion, creativity, and joy in your life?
Write it down, read it aloud, and give it up to the universe to deliver. Be open and be sure to let go of any limiting beliefs and negative thoughts that may tell you that you can’t have all that you desire. Because you can. You deserve it. You’re here to experience all of life’s splendors and the splendors of your own soul.
Go to Water and Hydrate
With all of the water energy happening, submerging yourself in water is a perfect way to wash away what no longer serves you to create a truly fresh slate for all of this to integrate, settle, and grow.
Take a bath, go swimming, jump in the ocean, drink tons of water. Flow and be fluid and don’t fight what is happening within and around you.
You are becoming. Becoming who you are meant to be. The world needs that. We need your magic and brilliance.
You got this!
