Blessed Saturday, Blessed Lammas! Saturday is a day influenced by the third eye, also called the pineal gland and represented by the color purple!
The pineal gland regulates hormones and, when decalcified, can be a powerful vehicle in percieving and intuiting beyond this 3rd dimension. That is, it’s a powerful tool in meditation and in connecting to the divine. Our eyes are limited by what they can percieve- they were created to percieve this dimension. Light particulates, for instance, are real but beyond our perception based on the physiology of our eyes. The 3rd eye is your divine sight, giving you the ability to see beyond this physical realm.
The 3rd eye chakra maintains the balance of spirit. The 3rd eye mantra is “we are perceptive.” Saturday is also ruled by the planet Saturn!
Saturday june 21 marks the day when, in the northern hemisphere the sun creates longer days, it’s the longest day of the year the summer solstice. In pagan tradition we celebrate a sabbat it’s called Litha.
Litha means illumination and the summer solstice is all about the sun! This is traditionally the month of marriages, since May and Beltane traditionally ring in hand fasting which lasts a year to determine your commitment to your partner. June then becomes the month when, after your hanfast, a couple will marry. Blossoms, fertility, fire and water all represent this time of year. Like most sabbats a bon fire and playing in the water, even a sprinkler will do to celebrate this holiday!
Blessed Litha beloved’s! In the southern hemisphere Litha is celebrated on 21Dec.
Saturday June 20th the sun will move into the sign of Cancer and later in the evening the moon will also move into Cancer creating an annular solar eclipse that evening. The day of the solstice we celebrate the sun, in a pagan tradition or sabbat called Lithia!
Expect high energy from the earth, sun and moon. We also have 5 planets in retrograde motion, revisiting or reviewing our current personal and social trajectories. There’s never been a more important time to ground and sheild your energy. With heavy galactic energy influx you could feel ill mentally or physically or manic and I encourage you to remember who you are: a spiritual energetic immortal being having a physical 3D experience. Observe. Allow. Shift into heart space. And so it is.
Mercury the messenger planet will appear to be moving backwards in the sky, an effect called Retrograde. He will continue to transit the sign of Cancer, the sign ruled by the moon and who rules the 4th house of home and family. Mercury in Cancer gives us communication around the home and family. This retrograde is just prior to a solar eclipse where the sun and the (new) moon have also moved into the sign of Cancer illuminating the same area of home and family that mercury plans to revisit and reevaluate. Stay loving and in heart space. Remember your creative energy is life force energy and is a great way to process change and emotions. You are guided and protected as we reach for our highest and greatest selves and timelines. And so it is.
Pluto moves retrograde today, in Capricorn! The moon will trine Saturn who recently entered Aquarius, ushering in the Aquarian age. A trine is a harmonious blessing (x3) so expect Saturn in Aquarius trine the moon offer less restriction or blocks with regard to individuality. It’s a blessed day to take time for yourself, break down boundaries and open up. We are expanding. We are not victims, we can lovingly choose ascension.
Mercury will square Pluto and Jupiter making it day of review, what are you expanding, what is your souls purpose? Mercury is restricted with these squares so take your time communicating and notice the messages you receive!
Sometimes unlearning social contracts, patterns or beliefs is the way your soul needs to learn. It’s time to honor our heart space. If it doesn’t resonate with the heart space, let it fade away or release it. Keep touching base with yourself. What is it you truly desire? One of my favourite super heroes is Wolverine. He was made to be a killer. He didn’t know the intentions of the creators he only knew that he was heartbroken or felt he had to, in order to defeat his brother, Sabertooth. In Logan, Wolverine says “don’t become what they made you” speaking to the little girl version of him they created. They made her a weapon, just like they made him a weapon. But he had consciousness, not just programming. What if our reality has limiting beliefs that we can transcend by unlearning the constraints of this reality? That’s why it’s so important to be your authentic self and to choose you. Holding space for authenticity is transformative and allows for others to transform and be more authentic and loving, too.
Rocking the H wave on my metal foot! The VA is really pushing these machines….i know everyone is going through something! I know that being vulnerable and sharing my feelings and fears will hold space for someone else on this journey. Dealing with chronic pain and injuries, for me, is another opportunity to transform energy and to practice focus and gratitude. Isn’t it crazy how much we take for granted, until we no longer have it or it’s painful or difficult to use? The pain is so visceral it’s debilitating sometimes but it’s an opportunity. An opportunity to heal, an opportunity to overcome, to release, surrender and to feel. Pain can be used as a learning tool and as an opportunity to surrender. We choose. I am so grateful for the reminder that I am alive and I release the need for that reminder to be painful. This too will make me stronger! And so it is.
Feel the energy shifting today? It’s Venus, the earth goddess has returned and she is transiting a ruling sign, Taurus! Take time with nature and be prepared to see and to feel love from the universe and all. The more loving you are the more loving the universe can be with you!
