As the leaves in the fall let go of their resistance to the changing seasons, to their branches, to their pasts and fly into the Fall air, so do we all in the Autumn and this one is especially so with a vibrant changing tapestry during this time which has the power to bring about an entirely new landscape into our lives.
This is mirrored in the Southern hemisphere as they ready for Spring, another vast change that brings with it immense growth and renewal. No matter where we are right now we can feel the transformation welling in our blood.
We welcome the New Moon on September 13th in Virgo, and the Healer Priestess is tapping us deeply into a place of looking at what is nourishing us. The solar eclipse that day will cause some changing energy in your world that day, no matter if you can see it or not.
A total lunar eclipse on the Full Blood Harvest Moon in Aries occurring on the 27th/28th will be bringing a HUGE transformation into our lives. You can feel it building around you already and have been for awhile. This shift is going to fuel the next six months of our journey with a new courage and fire.
This is potent re-birthing energy, bringing us a culmination of the lessons and clarity we have seen which is fueling us in the direction of our dreams, our purpose and our passion. This is a time of seeing things with new eyes, finding solutions that seemingly didn’t exist until now. This is a brave time of moving in the direction of infinite possibility.
Combine that with Venus returning with her lessons for our heart from the underworld as she goes direct once more on the 6th, Pluto venturing direct as well from the shadows on the 26th right before the major shifting energy of the eclipse. Expect him to bring with him the truth in a big way no matter how hard it may be to deal with. Mercury joins the bandwagon going retrograde on the 18th, slowing up communications and bringing a focus to the deep questions we must ask inwardly.
Spring energy in the Southern Hemisphere merges with this energy to bring from the darkness of the Winter months all that is needed to flourish in what is to come, leaving behind what no longer has a place. This is a powerful place of planting in the lush forming new landscape a whole new world. This can only occur once we are open and ready.
The energy of the Autumn mirrors this inward journey as we shift our attention from the external world and begin to make our descent into the darkness once more. This is not a time to mourn the Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, but to embrace the changing of the tides; the death and rebirth in the seasons, and of the self in a colorful and vibrant way.
Autumn leaves tumble to the Earth below and show no fear in the dance from branch to ground. They know the time has come, they feel it deep within; the time to evolve with the changing season is here.
So they let go of the branch and fly into the unknown embracing the icy winds and uncertain horizons. The time to surrender to the fall has come once more.
Much love and light upon your colorful journey.
Walking the crisp leaf path
Fallen before me
Gifts from the trees above
Turning in the Autumn breeze
She whispers to me
“There is no end
Only new beginnings
Change on the winds
And rebirth in the seasons
Do not cry for the fallen leaves
They gave to the tree
Now they give to the Earth
They will rise again
Born again in the Spring”
