“This lunar cycle offers an opportunity to break through our knots – our habits and negativities – and expand light into the darkness of ignorance.” – Ananda Astrology
Summer is the time of the Visionary, the one within who tells the truth without blame or judgement. The Summer sun kisses and blesses our accepted strengths, parts of us that we easily celebrate. But the strong light of Summer also creates stark Shadow. What is hidden from us, what is lying in Shadow, holds the key to our next phase of growth.
Our Shadow is not inherently evil or bad. The Shadow merely holds aspects of ourselves that we have not yet faced or processed or accepted. The Shadow is the Unknown in us, which we often fear.
The recent new moon on August 2 has brought up things from the Shadow to be met with compassion. Kari Field of Ananda Astrology goes into the Vedic Astrology details here. I found it illuminating, as on that date I felt very angry and vocalized frustration about longstanding issues with my husband. What is lying in Shadow is emerging to be resolved for the next piece of growth and healing.
May you find more compassion for whatever Shadow material is up for you right now. I can hold space for you and offer guidance in alignment with your spirit’s highest wisdom. Contact me for support at this tender Visionary time.
