We are finally at the month of two eclipses with a Mercury retrograde between them. To say there’s about to be monumental change would be an understatement. Leo does not do anything small.

Just a reminder to all of you out there that you signed up for this adventure and what an adventure it’s about to become! To pretend that you’re not a bit nervous (if not outright frightened) these days would be a lie.

You are challenging yourself to sail off the edge of your known world. And you will discover that there is something beyond that edge. But you must be willing to confront limitations in your perception before the new reality can be seen.

It is no different than when the white man came to the New World. The Native Indigenous People had never seen a sailing ship so at first, they did not see it at all. You cannot see what is ahead because it is nothing that you have ever encountered in this life. That is not necessarily bad but it can be very stressful.

This month, a lot of eggs are going to break—thoughts and beliefs you’ve carefully held all these years. It would be wise to let them fall. Let something bigger overtake the ego mind. You will have the opportunity to see and embrace your most shadowed and disowned self. Resistance isn’t worth it any more.

Your innocence and openness is the secret code to get you past those demons you’ve created to protect you from your truth. Squirrel reminds you to gather what you need for the future; having reserves is always a good idea, especially in unpredictable times.

It is time to unburden yourself of the guilt you’ve been carrying for way too long. You just need to confess the truth to yourself to be free. Without truth, you can fall into hopelessness.

You have this moment to break out of generational patterns that have been repeating over and over again. Step beyond your DNA and into your true self.

I know that sounds like a big leap but the current astrology lends the extra power you need to move beyond present limitations. Choose to move with the energy instead of against it. Be your own hero or heroine. Magic happens when you are willing to trust that you are bigger and more powerful than you believed or that others told you.

The only limitation is the one in your mind. Connecting with others of like mind creates a unified field that may become unstoppable.

You can feel it. The change is like a sound coming from a distance. Your sensitive ears and intuitive feelers are already connecting to something beyond you. Let this be a magical moment. Let this change be so full and fulfilling that you cannot remember that older, smaller self any longer. From this place, your life can become what you’ve always wanted it to be.
