It’s eclipse season and if you’ve been feeling a little unsteady, you’re not alone. Many, many of us are exhausted (and experiencing a range of physical symptoms), have shadow or subconscious material coming to the surface to be processed, are in another wave of transition or metamorphosis, or are generally just feeling ungrounded or uncertain.

This is big stuff. Not only are we smack bang in between two eclipses, but it’s also Mercury Retrograde! I’ll come back to Mercury shortly. But first we need to understand that Eclipses are the universe’s way of nudging us onto our most aligned path. They create powerful energetic shifts, but they always have our best interests at heart, whether we can sense it immediately or not. Things are likely to pop up that need to transform. Trust, trust, trust.

The first eclipse occurred on the 25 March at the Libra Full Moon and the next one is coming up on 9 April at the Aries New Moon. Happening across the Libra and Aries axes, these eclipses are here to support us at a collective level to move courageously towards our individual dreams and consider how we’re bringing the people around us on the journey. Allow whatever change is unfolding in your life to happen. The less we resist the more the universe can work its magic.

And back to Mercury Retrograde. The messenger planet, the planet ruling day-to-day communication, stationed retrograde on 1st April. What does that mean? Well, from our vantage point on Earth, Mercury appears to be travelling backwards. This can mean travel delays, computer crashes and communication breakdowns. For this reason, Mercury Retrograde is often feared but you don’t have to! Use this time now until 25 April to slow down and go within. It’s the ideal moment to reconnect with your creative capacity, fan the flames of your inner fire and review your next steps.
