Namaste, fellow travellers. We're one week into July and the energies are bursting. Are you having the time of your life? Are you cultivating joy and happiness and choosing to live in the moment, free as a bird soaring to the sky? Are you being called to put your rigidity aside and loosen up? To dance with the flow of the wind and embrace the solar energy that is all around us right now? Then you're right where you're supposed to be. And if not, perhaps this is the time to ask yourself how to cultivate more fun into your life?
For the longest time (basically my entire life) I've been a planner and I have more or less felt lost without a routine and a structure. I have always been told that I need to be more spontaneous and less attached to my regimen and always felt like I needed to defend my way of life. And don't get me wrong, I LOVE routines. I love writing lists. I love to plan my day and all of those things BUT something has shifted this summer. I have let go of everything and it feels both wonderful and scary but most importantly I am so proud of myself and I feel so free. So relieved. And it has all to do with the July energetics.
I started channeling it already in June and at first I approached it with caution but now I'm going all in. Nothing is impossible anymore and nothing holds me back. I live each day in the moment and I do exactly what my intuition tells me to do. One way I've been cultivating play and fun is through music. It just gets me so hyped, inspired and energized. The only problem is that I find it hard to turn my energy off in the evening, simply because I don't want to. I have SO much to do, to think about, to plan and to create. My sleep has been completely off but what the hell, we have the entire winter to sleep, right? I am not going to waste this wonderful summer on resting when I am in fact being called to live my life in full bloom! Are you with me?
But where are these energies coming from? Venus entered the sign of Leo on June 27th and will stay until July 21st/22nd. This is the ultimate time to follow our dreams, enjoy life and shine our light! Venus is the goddess of beauty, are and love. When she transits the fire:y sign of Leo we are encouraged to step into the light; to celebrate our own beauty, to treat ourselves to the things we love, to awaken our passions, to play, to be spontaneous and to put our own needs first - to feel our very best.
On July 13th we also experience a Venus and Mars conjunction in Leo which shines light on our relationships and our creativity. It strengthens our charisma and enthusiasm for life as well as inspires us to finally take the step to start that creative project we've been dreaming about for so long.
The New Moon in Cancer on July 9th/10th is also a wonderful time to call in your wishes for the remaining months of 2021. Write a list of what your heart desires and make sure the Universe knows that you are committed to work for your goals. I, myself will be doing a New Moon ritual on Saturday where I will evaluate my goals from December/January and rephrase whatever is necessary. So much has happened and changed in my life since then and I most definitely need to update whatever I'm calling into my life.
July is truly a beautiful month and I encourage all of you to have fun and come out to play! And don't pay too much attention to what other people think. Re-awaken your inner child! This is not the time to be restrictive. What you do with your life now can very well be the beginning of a new adventure. And don't be scared - it's all written in the stars! 💫
And PS. Take a social media break from time to time. It works wonders. 😇
