Hi and Happy Summer!
The Summer Solstice Moon this year falls on the Gate 44, the Gate of Truth initiating us into a season where we will continue to explore the theme of “truth”. This is the same theme that highlighted the astrological “beginning” of the global pandemic.
I find this to be a very interesting start to the summer season and there’s quite a bit to unpack. In order to integrate this more fully, I have a couple of things for us to look at as we weave the “big picture” here.
First of all, gentle reminder, we are in the midst of a cycle of being invited by the planets to re-write our personal and collective narrative. This invitation lasts until mid-October. We are coming out of a massive cycle of disruption and emerging into the world a new way. We are not who we were before and we can not go back.
To move forward, we must redefine who we are and craft a new narrative that supports us in building the energetic template of what we want and who we want to grow into becoming.
We are currently right smack dab in the middle of the Quantum Human Design™ Creative Quarter of the Template. The purpose of this Quarter is to speak into form our dreams and goals as the Sun transits through all of the Gates of the Activation Center (Throat Center). We are building the narrative that allows us to begin the process of activating our dreams in our lives.
In the middle of every Quarter, the Sun transits through the Incarnation Cross of the Vessel of Love, inviting us to calibrate our creative intentions with Love. This week as we travel through the midpoint of this Creative Quarter as the Sun travels through the Gate 15, the Gate of Compassion, causing us to make sure that the dreams we hold will benefit the greatest good and will position us to share who we are and what we have with others.
We have a Full Moon in the Gate 10, the Gate of Self-Love, this week on Thursday, encouraging us to release any old stories that keep us from self-love and self-empowerment. This is a strong urging from the moon to let go of victimhood consciousness and to take full responsibility for ourselves and our life circumstances.
All of these elements together add up to a powerful combination of energies that invite us to explore the patterns of the past, cultivate our power by bringing ourselves back into alignment with our integrity and our true value.
Because this energy highlights the theme of Truth and potentially the revision of Truth, I fully expect to see a collective review of the past – in particular the more recent past – and for there to potentially be a struggle to either find the truth or hide the truth.
I also expect to see COVID prominently in the news again. We’re still battling for a collective definition of what happened, why it happened and how we are going to realign ourselves with integrity on a path forward to reflects the deep value of all life. With the gauntlet of “truth” thrown down for us, we’re going to continue to try to figure out what happened and why. It will be interesting to see what gets revealed and what truths may be distorted.
I’m particularly intrigued with the Full Moon in the Gate 10 in the light of these energies. To take back control, we’re going to have to drop our victimhood stories. This is true no matter which side of the fence you stand on when it comes to COVID. We are being encouraged to explore, through the lens of compassion, what are we for, versus what we are against.
Mercury goes direct on Wednesday, revisiting the Gates 12, the Gate of the Channel, the Gate 45, the Gate of Distribution and the Gate 35, the Gate of Experience.
Mercury has been encouraging us to explore whether the language we use and the ideas we transmit are abundant. We have been schooled to speak with high quality and divinely inspired language. We have been learning to share our own experiences for the sake of lifting others up and exploring what we have that we can share.
There is tremendous potential for us to explore how we are assuming leadership in our lives and whether we are leading as an expression of Life’s Intelligence flowing through us or whether we are taking leadership from a place of lack. A low sense of self-worth may cause us to try to take what’s not ours, over control and defend our low position.
Again, just one more planet reminding us to have a good, strong personal narrative in place and to be mindful of the impact we have on others and the impact they have on us.
Jupiter goes retrograde this week, making for a veritable retrograde pile-up in the sky! So much energy for revision and contemplation!
When Jupiter goes retrograde, it often forces us to confront a past decision or an old narrative that is keeping us from doing what we truly love. With this retrograde cycle starting in the Gate 55, the Gate of Faith, we are looking at where our lack of faith may have kept us playing small or stopped us from taking a chance that our dreams could come true. Your comfort zone might feel a little uncomfortable during this time, pushing you to – well – write a new narrative about who you are and what passions you seek to ignite with your life.
And also encouraging you to cultivate the faith to dream bigger than your comfort zone…
The Sun this week transits the Gate 15, the Gate of Compassion. The Earth grounds us in the Gate10, the Gate of Self-Love. We are exploring how we can better love each other and ourselves and remembering that we have more to give when we fill our own cup.
On Friday the Sun moves into the Gate 52, the Gate of Perspective, giving us a broader perspective that helps us know where exactly to focus our energy and time. The Earth moves to the Gate 58, the Gate of the Joy of Mastery. We are reconnecting with our joy and exploring how we can create more joy in our lives.
The bottom line? You’re designed to grow and expand beyond what you think is possible. You are designed to take great leaps of faith towards the fulfillment of your dreams. You’re designed to follow your Heart, your passion and your joy. You’re designed to create with a deep understanding that you are a once-in-a-cosmic-lifetime event.
You’re not designed to settle for less than what you dream of.
Write a new narrative that includes your biggest dreams!
From my Heart to Yours,
