Tomorrow's super volatile Lunar eclipse across Aquarius/Leo will activate in you a volcanic purge, an emotional and physical catharsis. For sensitives, empaths and creatives, this alignment is an incredible catalyst out of past conditioning into the power of conscious choice. Something inside you is unfreezing. It’s as if a part of you is coming back to life. It’s subtle, it’s sensitive and it’s inexplicable. This is a version of yourself that is both familiar and utterly unknown to you. It is the new high frequency human experience and you are along for the ride. Your emergent Self is beginning to seed your 2nd Life.
Here are some words from poet Melissa LaFlamme to use as a your North Star during these karmic times :
" When you live from your intuitive core, your belly, your heart, let your soul lead and spirit guide you, your words and actions will be naturally subversive.
You will go to your edge. You will soften. Become wildly tender. Being authentic and soul-centred costs you your ticket to ride from the collective mainstream + to the illusion of safe and secure. And opens the door to your glistening, broken whole heart -- reveals to you the honey of this wildly delicious, messy life. Leaves you and those you touch, feeling radically free. Without choice now. Solid and light. Authenticity strips away all that is NOT real. All that is not made from love, to love. All that is of enriched soul and in-spired Spirit remains. There is no living a soul-centred life without being authentic — without mustering the courage to do the excavating in the dark.
Being too comfortable, amenable, pliable to the point of contorting yourself — is a ticket to selling your soul right up the river. Don't buy it. When you live from your own knowing-ness, from your gut and your wildly-rooted intelligence, you feel alive. Genuinely, madly, creatively alive.
Being real — true to your Self, your soul — is gritty. And grit causes friction, makes fire to clear the way for living a revolutionary act. This act is marked by action that the earth and the soul of the world are crying out for. And the cry is going to get louder, more pain-filled, and grievous before enough souls answer wholeheartedly.
When you get real, it is actually not about you. Your individual program is only the ground from which you step. From which you step and choose whether you will make this life of yours a walk of grit and beauty, or one of accommodation to the forces that insist you do it their way, be well-behaved, produce, consume, make nice, and as the poet, Mary Oliver says, "barely breathing and calling it a life."
Thing is we're not talking a self-improvement project; that's only the gateway. We are being used. By Spirit. One way or the other: we go consciously or we are abducted — individually and collectively, now. So it's a great time to dive in."

From Astrologer Bill Attride
Mercury turns retrograde on July 26th, at 23 degrees of Leo, and turns direct again on August 19th at 11 degrees of Leo. I mentioned this upcoming retrograde in my most recent radio show on Saturday July 21st. Here is the link to that show: Radio Show. If you move the progress bar for the playback to about 18 minutes into the show, by clicking in the player progress window, you can hear my thoughts about this, (roughly 11 minutes of commentary). And, while you are there you might want to see what other shows and topics might interest you too.
The experience you will have with Mercury retrograde depends upon your level of spiritual awareness. To the extent that you know yourself and equally understand your world, well to that same extent you will experience a greater measure of free will. You will choose how to meet each day, guided by an open mind, a loving heart and a centered will.
If you are more awake and aware, your perception and sensitivity to the shifting energies formed by the planetary influences will be held and understood as being neither harmful or benefic for you or anyone else…these universal energies “just are”. It is up to each of us, by raising up our self-awareness to determine whether we will live our lives as free or subservient to these Winds of the Spirit.
Many will complain over the next many weeks, that Mercury retrograde has brought them into a series of annoyances, difficulties or even greater harm. But the fault lies not in Mercury at all, but in our own failure to understand and make use of this change in the “Astrological Weather”.
When Mercury is retrograde we are offered an opportunity to shift our normal mental dispositions and considerations into a more reflective, pensive and introspective mode. We, like Mercury, need to turn back upon ourselves and re-examine our minds, to be ever more self-reflective and take this time to reconsider our thoughts, to question our means and mechanisms of perception, and to revise and improve our avenues and tools of communication too.
If we do this, we will use this energy shift as it is meant to be experienced, for self-examination, repair and renewal.
Of course, we all live very busy lives, and though it would be nice to take a 3-week break, to go on a retreat or to partake in some form of a vision quest, our obligations to family, community and the larger world will usually not allow us to do so.
But we can take time, every day, maybe as the day begins, and certainly at the end of each day, (and perhaps we will find some time during the day too), to pause, turn around and consider why we are thinking about something in a certain way, why we are writing or speaking with that tone or attitude. And, maybe we will understand that we can and should try to refine, renew and rebuild our self-understanding. And when we have done this, we can turn outwards and renew our sacred spaces with one another by forging a better understanding of one another too.
For this retrograde, Mercury is moving through the sign of Leo. It is focusing this opportunity to reset and renew upon our heart, upon how we might better understand and live with greater love, honor and respect for one another. Plant the seeds of better tomorrows by treating those before you as you wish to be treated too.
The weather is changing, and you would be wise to make use of this gift of the Spirit.
Be wise like the serpent, and gentle as a dove.
The path to wisdom is forged in humility and grace.
Bow down to Hermes, the messenger who brings gifts from above.
Open your heart, and you will be wise.
