Here’s a reflection prompt, culled from evolutionary astrology forecasts for the iterative processes through which we create our mindscapes and engage our cultural space. These reflection prompts intend to stimulate self exploration.

The time period during eclipses can feel more dramatic, more emotional, more electric. Solar eclipses stimulate things that are coming into our personality (ego experience) and lunar eclipses disseminate things that are leaving that filtered-vision of reality.

We met a solar eclipse on July 12 (paired with a new moon, working in the areas of home and baseline power vibes). We will meet a lunar eclipse on July 27 (paired with the full moon, working in the areas of tribes and teachings and carrying the Mars retrograde two-steps forward, three-steps back flavor of this summer). Then, in August, one more solar eclipse on August 11 (paired with the new moon, working in the area of your potentially bestest, brightest, show-stealing persona).

There’s a lot going on outside and within.

The July solar eclipse might have really ripped into you. It affected the tender areas and might have wrung your being out from your mind to your heart to your tummy. The July lunar eclipse might do the same, double dutch, since the Martian flavor can make the tender areas burn. When you make it to the August one, how are you going to wear your shiny, polished mind armor, phoenix?

REFLECTION PROMPT: How do these words feel: personality, home, baseline power, tribe, teachings? 

Extra strength RX: Take reflection time to listen. Open to a blank page. Gaze upon in. Be quiet in the space of unwritten words, and let the universe do it’s job while you do yours to be human and bear witness. Insights might come that help you use the potential of this reflection space (a charged point in time and space).
