We are approaching a period of accelerated and powerful energies with the upcoming fall/spring equinox, an eclipse series in October, and Mercury retrograde from October 4 to 26.
These energies will bring windows of opportunity, as well as challenges designed to help us re-calibrate our spiritual connection and restructure our approach to our purpose. The decisions we make during this period will cast a wide sphere of influence well into the coming year.
Revisit your intentions to make the Most of Magnified Energies
So why are we talking now about energies that are a few weeks out? One reason is that many lightworkers are sensitive to energies and begin to experience the powerful shifts an eclipse brings a month or more prior to the actual event. Another reason is in order to make the most of the opportunities this powerful passage will bring, we need to revisit our intentions and visions prior to this time of magnified energies.
We can begin now preparing for this period through dreamwork, journaling, meditation, dietary and other changes. By focusing our intentions, we ride the waves of these powerful energies into future life tracks where we experience more of our divine nature.
The September 22 Equinox seeks to balance Mind, Body and Spirit
The upcoming equinox will boost our preparations for October’s transformative energies. In the northern hemisphere, it’s time to balance mind, body and spirit, and undertake cleaning and clearing in preparation for winter. Clearing clutter and bringing order to our environment is important to finding balance. This is a good time to begin new dietary regimens and health practices that build our immune systems. This balancing and clearing will support our journey into October’s Mercury retrograde and eclipse series.
Visiting Future Life Tracks in Dream States
The next few weeks are a time to examine whether some of our intentions are outdated and no longer valid. This is a time to open to new ideas and visions, and to begin energizing these as the energies amplify and accelerate.
In coming weeks, nightly dreams will become an excellent source of new visions as our subconscious minds are drawn to travel to future life tracks in order to examine the field of potentials crystallizing in our futures. Practice writing down dreams and you will begin to remember more of your nightly travels.
The period just prior to an eclipse series is a very rich time for dream journeys. You can set your intentions before going to sleep to travel to potential new life tracks. Just before bedtime is also a good time to review the questions you are working with, and to ask for guidance to come through your dream travels. This is a time of heightened energies when lucid dreams are more likely. To cultivate lucid dreams, practice lucidity in your waking life. Be mindful of where you focus your attention prior to falling asleep, as this focus helps direct the flow of your dream travels.
Journaling, Automatic Writing and Meditation
To make the most of upcoming energies, it’s helpful to begin an intensive introspective period in the weeks prior. You may find it helpful to journal if you don’t do so already. Journaling helps you gain perspective and insight into your ‘waking dream’. Daily journaling also helps you bring awareness to stuck emotions so you can clear them. When you journal, give yourself the freedom to write whatever flows into your mind. Journaling is a good housecleaning tool to assist you in processing emotions and bringing awareness to the landscape of your mental and emotional bodies.
Once you become comfortable with daily journaling, you can begin to incorporate automatic writing. One way to begin automatic writing is to write out questions on one side of your notebook and allow answers to flow onto the opposite page. When you begin writing things you don’t consciously know, you have tapped into the deep well of your subconscious.
Meditation is another excellent tool for getting in touch with the flow of your internal world. Meditation can bring awareness of potentials crystallizing in future life tracks. It also helps with internal housecleaning. Meditation raises your vibration, and over time can help break loose stuck emotions, allowing them to bubble to the surface of your consciousness to be released. If you don’t currently have a meditation practice, begin now. Sit for at least 15 to 30 minutes every day, releasing all thoughts and relaxing and stilling your mind. Allow whatever happens to be perfect for you within the moment.
Our Astrology Charts Depict the Personal Impact of an Eclipse
We will all feel the effects of the upcoming Mercury retrograde and eclipse energies. The exact way in which you experience them can be understood by examining your astrology chart. The type of impact, and its intensity and duration, depends on where an eclipse falls in a person’s astrology chart. If an eclipse falls within 3 degrees of a planet, or an important point in your chart by conjunction or opposition, it is of special significance to you. The nature of the planet impacted by the eclipse offers clues to the experiences that lie ahead. Each house in astrology points toward an area of your life. Knowing which house in which an eclipse falls within your chart will help you get your affairs in order.
Mercury stations retrograde from October 4-26, journeying from 2 degrees Scorpio to 16 degrees Libra. This is a potent Mercury retrograde because it activates the October 23 Solar Eclipse point of 0 degrees Scorpio, intermingling the energies of Mercury retrograde with the solar eclipse. You can examine where 0 degrees Scorpio lands in your chart (and points within orb) to see how the October 23 eclipse will impact you. There will also be a total lunar eclipse October 8, at 15 degrees Aries, with the sun opposing at 15 degrees Libra.
On September 26, Jupiter begins a trine to Uranus that lasts several weeks. Jupiter in trine to Uranus opens a portal to good fortune, positive energies, and new and interesting people. This is a great time to bring forth new visions and new creations. Artists, writers, inventors and visionaries of all kinds can ride waves of success during this period. This Jupiter/Uranus trine leads us into a grand fire trine (with Mars, Jupiter and Uranus) conjunct the October 8 Lunar Eclipse. We will talk more about these energies as we draw closer, so stay tuned.
Creating a Unified Field of Intention
Once you lay the groundwork and choose your intentions for this upcoming period, you can work with all aspects of your consciousness to bring unity and agreement to these intentions. If some aspects are not on board with these intentions, you will not have the unity of vision that brings the laser focus and concentration needed to make the most of these energies. To harmonize and unify all facets of your consciousness, visualize an inner circle of love during meditation. Bring inside this circle all your aspects – younger selves from this lifetime as well as past and future selves that exist in timeframes parallel to your present moment. Inner peace and harmony with all ‘selves’ allows you to create a unified field of intention to help you navigate the upcoming energies.
