As we get closer to the Leo New Moon this week we begin a month-long cosmic dance that will last well into August – one that will also take in Venus – both now and again at the Full Moon mid-month.
The theme tune driving this particular episode is a growing awareness that if you want your life, health, finances and relationships to improve, then you are going to have to make some fundamental personal changes. No more excuses, deflections or projections: The buck stops with you.
Look to the natal and transiting placements of the Sun and Uranus for clues as to which life areas these may involve. Chances are though, that you already know because tension levels may have been building in this particular arena for some time – and, if you are honest, are fast reaching explosion point.
If however, you have been in denial, then events at Tuesday’s Sun-Uranus square could come as something of a shock. Whether it is an unexpected blow to the ego or an unforeseen disruption to plans, the message is the same: it’s make or break time – something has to give, because things simply cannot continue as they are.
Rather than resist, which will only lead to more stress, see this as your lightbulb moment – a sign that it’s time for a paradigm shift. Accepting that to maintain the status quo would be more painful than it would to be to switch tack is the first step. However, you also need to acknowledge that this is not going to be an overnight process. Judging by the planets, it is one that will take most of the month to work through….
That being said, once we admit the truth, we will enjoy two instant benefits:
a) An immediate release of tension as you let go of resistance and step into a place of greater authenticity and truth;
and b) As you commit to making changes, you may notice that it has a positive knock-on effect on everything else in your life, including your relationship to others, and to the flow of abundance.
Albert Einstein is alleged to have said: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Right now, the cosmos is telling us in no uncertain times that it’s time to give up our old ways and try something new. Save yourself a lot of hassle and stress – and listen.
