At 6:42 am today, the sun and moon in Gemini conjuncted each other in a “north node eclipse.” This is some of the most powerful astrology we get—a wild initiation in not just our personal lives but our shared future.
Many of us have been feeling a big itch since May 27’s lunar eclipse, not coincidentally when things began reopening in earnest. Since then, there’s been a collective malingering in a portal between the old and new. Today a door opens. Cue breakthroughs and (sorry!) breakdowns.
Paranoia might be the order of the day but, ahem, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you. This is the time for shadow work—for deceptions and illusions to be revealed, including how we betray ourselves. Ask yourself: how do I confuse my ego needs—my desires based on fear and scarcity—with the callings of my highest heart?
Your highest heart is where personal will unites with that diamond of divine energy that lives inside everything. And mining that diamond is today’s big offering. So how?
Spend as much time as possible outdoors. Drink tons of water and eat enough protein to ground you. Breathe as deeply as you can. Unplug from your devices. Above all, pay attention to your physical responses as you evaluate your life—relationships, work, self-care—with curiosity and compassion. “Gut instinct” is not just a figure of speech.
Today is for untangling the dystopia from the utopia—not only around you but within yourself. It is not a time for business-as-usual. It is a time to rise.
