ECLIPSE LESSON – NUTURE THY SELF
JULY 2018 NEWSLETTER
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 planets are retrograde so to expect anything to go according to plan is a big ask. Life as we know it is changing and not panning out as we would like it.
Be aware of this energy and try not to expect too much from yourself or others. It would be better to put certain things on hold, in many cases events or meetings that are being planned may expect delays and in some cases be cancelled.
That does not mean we just give up and fall into a hole of despair, we need to simply go back to what we know is solid, and start from that platform of security to grow yet again.
Change will not happen fast as uncertainty and disruption steps in the way. Hold onto your ideas, these planets will be going direct and in normal motion around December. Expectations of projects and their outcome may be too high if you are aiming for quick results, lengthen your due date to December January as a more realistic goal.
December is when things start moving forward the way we wish them to. The planets motion normalises and life can beginning to get back to an acceptable and successful pace.
What this period in life is showing us, is all the faults and miscalculations in our own specific fields. This is the time to mend what is broken, re-evaluate the method you are using and investigate better ways of approaching people and projects. Believe you me a lot is not going according to plan due to breakdowns, misunderstanding or systems malfunctions.
Take this time to honestly recognise the truth of your life path, fix things in your life that are destructive or generally weak nor working out they way they should.
It is interesting that as Mars has joined in and is also moving retrograde, the action planet is helping by actually showing us what can no longer take us forward in our everyday life.
I have had a number of clients asking if Mercury is retrograde as material possessions such as cars, microwaves, washing machines and the likes are giving up. Certainly time to get new and better models, new tires for your car and anything that can help your way forward become easier. But this time we cannot blame Mercury, it is both retrograde Mars and then new energy Uranus brings us.
Uranus entering Taurus has shaken life up in a big way, especially in the area of our finances, and material resources. Take this with retrograde Mars and know that those areas of our life have to be addresses and restructured.
Do not hide or deny financial problems, face them head on, you may not like what you see but you can certainly look back and find the ways you managed your finances in the past, even if it means going back to what it was that made you money.
With Uranus in Aquarius this is also a great time to think up innovative ways of building up you funds. Put in structures into your business and personal life that can help you grow and secure your future.
This energy is exposing us to how extremely poor people are, to how very bad money and peoples monthly budgets are. Taxes, petrol prices and a huge jump in the cost of food is restricting cash flow. People out there are not coping; even those who have a wealthy façade are experiencing huge debt. We need to be innovative to find ways of collectively making money and supporting each other.
In the 1940’s when Uranus was last in Taurus women in the western world were allowed to vote, well what is interesting is where women are still suppressed in the East a law has just been passed allowing women to drive. So Uranus does bring about good change by shaking up some old ideals.
To read more about what can be expected with Uranus in Taurus here is an article http://www.sublunar.co.za/violent-crime-growingwhy/ which I wrote on request.
My word so much doom and gloom, but it is a reality, the is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel…Jupiter the planet that brings about a lot of things has been working through brining about a lot of change. He has been retrograde and is not moving as he stations to go direct. This means that changes we have been planning and meaning to make can now be addressed, by the end of July we should have a more positive direction as the changes that have been hovering can now actually begin to happen.
Make the changes in your life, all which is holding you back or destroying you, even if it is a dream that is not ever going to be a reality, bin it and change your thoughts. What you have been working on ending or transforming will start to take effect at the end of this month.
Since March we know things have needed to change, certain elements in our lives need to be eliminated, and for some of us circumstances have turned our world upside down. We have been dealing with the repercussions and uncertainty of a changing life for many months, reflecting on how to manage the sudden shifts we are facing. Well time of reflection is over; it is time to take steps into a new and transformative adventure. Elimination of the bad makes room for new, so begin to eliminate what has been plaguing you and set yourself free.
This is a month of eclipses which enhances the need to let the past go so new can enter. A solar eclipse is likened to a new Moon on steroids, so too is a lunar eclipse which is a full Moon on steroids. We can feel the effect of the eclipses weeks before and after their occurrence.
A Solar Eclipse will happen on the 17th of this Month and will not be visible in South Africa. Both the Sun and Moon will be in Cancer and the Moon will eclipse the Sun from an earths point of view. The theme of this eclipse will be about our need for nurturing, food, home, family, mothers, and women in general. We may find ourselves and society in general hungering for security, for home and family, a need to belong, this eclipse will high light those who are hungry and homeless just wanting a place where they can feel warm and secure.
It is a new Moon which encourages new growth and enhances the ability to pick up signals, become more intuitive and reflective. We need to take care we do not absorb too many negative emotions that can be projected back into society but to focus on the positive nurturing vibes and magnify them to heal and serve those around us.
The Cancer energy teaches us to care and serve others, this is a time where we can get over our egos and see how in new and positive ways we can heal and care for those around us. Where it happens in your chart will be telling.
WHAT A WIN WE WILL BE ABLE TO WITNESS THE LUNAR ECLIPSE!!!!
The Lunar eclipse will occur on the 27th of July beginning at 7 14pm and ending on the 28th at 1 28am, this Lunar eclipse will be VISIBLE in South Africa, so get out your telescopes and enjoy the view of our Moon as the earth’s shadow is cast over it.
One of the big themes of this eclipse is that we will need to face the truth about life, our life and life in general. Take off the rose tinted glassed and see humanity for what it is.
The Sun will be in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius, it will be a full Moon a time for completion. An Aquarian Moon is all about reflecting on the truth, humanity, groups of people, friendships, and innovative needs. Many truths will be exposed, be they good or harmful, the truth will prevail and the repercussions will be felt for a long time after the eclipse.
This eclipse will guide us into finding completeness in these areas of our lives and the ability to let go of those things that do not bring about completeness. We will be able to let go of waning friendships and innovative ideals that will not happen, chose the groups we find healing and inspiring, let go of groups, people who are dishonest and those that are not in any way kind to humanity in general.
Please note I will be doing mini reading for those in need to see where these happenings are going down in your life. R300 contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
With Saturn retrograde in Capricorn we may find an increase in injuries and dental problems. Aches and flare ups of chronic pain due to arthritis and rheumatic symptoms may be on the rise.
Rheumatic pain also known as fibro myalgia is more often than not caused by continual stress releasing enzymes into your body resulting in pain throughout your body followed by fatigue.
The only real cure for this is to eliminate as much stress and pressure that you possibly can from your life. Sleep more and eat a healthy diet cutting down on foods that cause inflammation such as wheat, sugar and unrefined foods.
Do not ignore dental pain, treating a cavity sooner will protect the nerve and prevent further decay. It is very important to visit your dental hygienist regularly to keep your gums healthy; they can detect gum disease early. Remember flossing not only removes food from further decaying your teeth but keeps your gums strong and healthy.
It is safer to rinse your mouth with salt water than mouth wash which if used too often can kill off your natural flora.
Bad smelling breath can be due to decaying teeth, but there are other causes such as acid reflux which if not controlled can cause decay in the tissue of your sinuses and that causes bad breath. The reflux can decay your teeth as well, so manage your reflux for healthier teeth and general health.
Many people drink fresh lemon juice to manage the ph of their bodies, this is not a bad thing to do but remember even watered down the lemon juice will be damaging on your gums and soften the enamel of your teeth, so simply rinse with water after drinking your lemon juice.
That’s it for this month; remember to celebrate the eclipse on the eve of the 27th, a bonfire, nice friends and a time to reflect on the future.
