Energetic Fireworks

I posted this to Facebook last night, but I suspect that the festivities were keeping most people in the US off their computers…

A solar wind stream hit Earth’s magnetic field on July 4th, sparking a moderately strong (G2-class) geomagnetic storm. High-latitude sky watchers who receive this email before sunrise on July 5th should be alert for auroras. The hours around local midnight are usually the best times to look.

In addition to the possibility of pretty skies, the storm might be making people more sensitive – physically, emotionally, and intuitively. Beware of making more out of something than is warranted. Guard also against dehydration, and move slowly.

As usual, the effects of this storm will affect us for at least another day, so pull your energy inward, conserving it, and practice self-care.

A great visualization exercise for pulling your energy inward is to put your arms our as if you were holding the inner layer of your aura. In fact, picture yourself holding the inner layer of your aura (about 18 – 24 inches from your physical body). Then gently, slowly, pull/push that energy into your body, bringing it all the way into your hara line (the thread that runs up through the center of your body from head to toe). Feel yourself as a more concentrated energy. Do this several times a day for best results.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The Gibbous Moon

This is I’ve been taking Dana Gerhardt’s Moon Workshop for the last 9 months, and occasionally things really jump out at me. Welcome to my brain.

This is an interesting moon phase. We’re almost at Full Moon, but not quite. There’s a bit of senioritis to it for a lot of people. Are we there yet? How about now? It’s important to push through, to move forward with purpose, to stay on target. It’s equally important to do it joyfully, from the heart chakra. Otherwise we risk acting the martyr, and martyrs’ stories, by definition, don’t end well.

If you don’t feel like you’re making progress, do something about it.

If you feel thwarted, decide if there’s an around, or only a through. And then take that path.

So many people in our society are wont to throw up their hands and give up, when the denouement, the plot twist, the miracle, is just around the corner. Don’t be That Guy. Everybody gets annoyed by that character in the movies, right? Be the person who gets it done and saves the day.

Full Moon is on Wednesday. You can think about slowing down or taking a break after that. Maybe.

For now, keep making things happen!
