I am writing to you on a hot, cloudy, muggy Saturday afternoon here in Cincinnati and the weather feels like it is reflecting the energy I see playing out all around me. The pressure seems to have turned up as more heat in our relationships, businesses, and activities, with a sense of stickiness - stuck places coming up to be explored. And yet, this is one of my favorite times of the year with more light, more sunshine, more warmth... flowers and gardens blooming... skies bright blue... all of the animals out playing in nature in the mornings. It is a study of contrasts around us and a powerful time of preparing for the shifts I feel arriving on our planet over the next few weeks.
Preparing - "creating in advance; making someone ready or able to do or deal with something; making something ready for use or consideration..."
This weekend is a New Moon in Leo and the New Moon is all about the possibilities sitting in the darkness - in the moonless sky. Yet surrounded by a million stars. A billion stars. An infinite supply of stars. The New Moon in Leo brings this awareness of the greater nature of our Souls. Leo is about fire and creation; honoring the times of the kings, the priests and priestesses; remembering the gift of powerful guidance being used for the collective good.
Our Soul-human journey continually offers us the opportunity to wake up to the all of the beauty and layers that are present in this Earthly experience. We can move through our days with our heads down, blind to the majesty that is all around us, ignoring the nudges and signs that our Soul brings forward every day... and have a quite pleasant life's experience. This is true for perhaps 80% of our collective humanity.
Or... we can become very still and present to the absolute gift of an Infinite Soul having a human, physical incarnation.
This weekend is a clear opening of a portal of Light and connection to our Infinite Soul that has never been available to us in the way it is right now. Our choice in each moment over the next four weeks directly determines what we are co-creating in our future. I offer this as an invitation to be SO present in your own life, consciously calling towards you the experiences that you MOST want for your Soul.
It is very easy to fall into the default of routines, habits, and structures that we have always followed; to operate under limited beliefs and societal norms in order to follow the flock. Many of us have spent much of our lives going along with what is expected of us.
Today, tomorrow, over these next four weeks as we make our way towards a Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st, instead we are being offered the option to plant our feet firmly in THIS moment, THIS body, THIS lifetime and align with the Infinite Soul that provides a bridge to ALL of the possibilities we craved for this Soul-human journey.
It is a clear threshold we sit at now, with two pathways. One is familiar, well-worn, and comfortable... not wrong, but yes... limited. The other - unfamiliar, perhaps a little intimidating or frightening in its unknown-ness, and yet, exciting for the infinite possibilities I know it presents.
Our planet is shifting. I know this. I feel this in every cell in my body. And I trust in the perfection and beauty that I see for our humanity. I believe there are some difficult days coming soon where chaos and suffering may feel very real. But it is simply a releasing of old human stories, a shaking up of what has felt familiar to us. And another moment to trust and choose the unknown, bold path of the Infinite Soul.
These words are coming from my Soul and being sent with Love to your Soul. So they may not feel very logical or clear. My hope is that you will simply allow the words to land gently inside your heart and feel the Truth at the times when you most need to remember.
This weekend, perhaps take time to prepare for the possibilities of expansion that lie ahead by journaling or walking in nature. Taking a long bath. Swimming in a cool lake. Sitting underneath a huge tree. Finding the quiet spaces where you can connect deeply within and allow your Soul to whisper to you.
If you are seeking the support of community, we are gathering tomorrow for our Viben Now! guided meditation at 10am and exploring the Abundance of possibilities for this Leo portal.
This New Moon weekend, we are also gathering at my home for a Viben Circle where we will set intentions, connect with new and old friends, and nourish our bodies and Souls.
In my own physical, human experience, I have just returned from two days of orientation for my daughter at The Ohio State University, where she will begin her freshman year August 17th. I am supporting her over these next few weeks as she prepares for her adventure... and simultaneously preparing my tender Mama heart to step back and allow her to fly.
This Soul-human journey is not for the weak of heart! But it is SO rich, so abundant in the joy and delight and beauty of each moment.
May your heart expand and continue to fill with more Light and Love over these next few weeks.
