It is the end of an era. This lunar eclipse ahead of the Saturn/Pluto meet up marks a turning point in history. Traditions that have stood for centuries no longer fit our world today, especially in how we relate to each other. Never have we been so connected, worldwide. What will we do with this power? Both the best and worst have been on display.
Today’s Lunar eclipse has the Sun highlighting ‘Careful Affection’ and the Moon highlighting where ‘Attention To Detail’ has been blocked. How we do what needs to be done is more important than what you do. Relationships need love and respect and the devil is in the details.
Does your behavior build a ‘strong ship’ for relating or does careless, impulsive, selfish moments punch holes in that boat? Your personal shift sends ripples out that join all the others doing similar shifts. It can call out better behavior in others. That kind of power evokes great fear. It’s fear that has us melting down, blaming and shaming or hiding out.
Because our fear always goes to work limiting our greatest strengths, not our greatest weaknesses. Weakness doesn’t expand our lives, strength does. And relationships are the greatest possible expansion we know. After all, when man and woman connect it can literally create a new life. Which is why those connections generate so much fear and conflict.
When Pluto and Saturn get together we experience a death and rebirth of our basic structures in life. But even how things get destroyed and rebuilt is being changed. You can let it be as non-threatening as a chick pecking its way out of a shell or you can see an apocalypse looming. One allows for an on ramp to change while the other is a leap off a cliff.
You have such impact on shaping your world, choosing your structures, redefining what has authority in your life right now. It starts from the very core of you and moves out. How do you relate to YOU? What kind of attention do you give your feelings. Because that is the limit of what you offer others. Quality attention to those details pays big dividends right now as you’ll hear a couple paragraphs down.
If you are at odds with what you see in the world now, then the change begins within you. I have a fun story to illustrate how one little shift inside creates a domino of change outside that feels soooooo good. That which changes in you, then adds to how you relate to others. Like a chain reaction, the shift feels better and travels further.
How to navigate what’s ahead
Love and respect, love and respect, love and respect are absolutely bedrock in these changing times. Find ways to give it to yourself and you create more of it around you. The world needs more of both and you absolutely make a difference. I experienced a snapshot of it first hand.
There’s a short audio about my own journey here ahead of this eclipse – from a mini meltdown to pure magic. I lived it, it is possible and I want it for you, too. Listen to it Here. Or you can download it Here.
These are emotionally moving times we live in today. Our feelings are our starting point. Then how can we act on those feelings in a way that supports our best expression in the world. Be a good ‘ship’ builder in relationships. As tempting as it is to want something or someone to blame – that won’t move you closer to what you want. It only increases the distance between you and others, like sinking the boat.
Careful affection with attention to detail makes a world of difference, as the story shows. You can play there, too, in your life. What is possible when we move out of opposition, shame and blame and into loving connection and magic? I want to find out more… and invite you to join me.
