Between yesterday and today, we have a lot going on both astrologically and cyclically. From the new black moon in Leo, the end of the retrograde, to the celebration of Lammas today. So what do these things mean – and more importantly, what do they mean for us?
This retrograde hit everyone a little harder than expected. But don’t think we’re out of it – the affects of the retrograde will continue into mid-August as Mercury “retraces” its steps. The retrograde affected things like communication, travel, technology, and relationships. No major decisions should be made directly before, during, or just after the retrograde.
However, this retrograde falls on a time that gives us power and momentum to LEAP into the next journey of our lives. With the moon turning to Leo and the seasonal change of Lammas, we are given the power to create abundance.
Lammas is the time for celebrating the first harvest. It marks the last weeks of summer and the return of fall, and is usually celebrated with bonfires, fairs, and feasting. Lammas marks the beginning of a shift in energies – from intense energy to a slow down. The Grain Mother during this time is heavily pregnant with the seeds of abundance
As we step into our Leo season, we throw away the stress thrust upon us during the retrograde and bring out the power that is the lion and lioness inside of us. The lion is about basking in the sun, creating its luxurious den, and becoming its most bold and powerful self.
So how can we create this den of abundance during this time? I created this journaling packet for you to invoke the abundance this shift brings us.
