Ive been sharing a series of posts about affirmations this week, and I have one more coming next week. I wanted to take a break today to talk about the super blood moon and eclipse we have coming on Sunday...
Completions and Closure
During the next few days, you may find that challenges are coming to an end. One of the articles I read suggested that things may resolve on a national level - which would be great - but here, I prefer to focus closer to home, in case there are things that will be meaningful for you, personally.
Because these are predictions that may or may not seem to come true in any particular person's life, I think of them as possibilities. And what I do is set an intention to be open to those possibilities.
I have quite a few challenges I'd like to see turn the corner and/or come to an end, so I will offer them up for completion. Do you have anything like that in your own life?
Another article suggested that if you look back over the past few years, you may notice your own personal growth in areas that had been a challenge for you. That sounds good, right?
And for me, there has been a spiritual shift that's connected to a challenge that began just before the time the article mentions (early 2017). Are you beginning to resolve any challenges that began a couple of years ago?
"This Eclipse also has some volatile, erratic energy to it, so we may feel a little scattered, drained or off balance. We may also find ourselves being pulled to release wounds of the past and to let go of things we thought we had dealt with. This Leo Eclipse is extremely potent and is going to be activating and transforming us on the deepest layers of our soul."

Be Happy, instead of Proving Yourself Right
Apparently, it could be easy to get into arguments and feel the need to prove yourself right over the next few days. I always cringe inwardly whenever I hear something like that because it's so easy for me to fall for that trick.
I have an intention to be careful this weekend - but I can be so unconscious at times, without even meaning to be, and I find myself wandering into a disagreement and then thinking, "what just happened?" Does that ever happen to you?
I am sick most of the time, so I am often not really paying attention, or I'm distracted by something I am worrying about, so if I can stay present, I might have an easier time of it. And isn't that the truth all the time?
Full Moon on Monday
It's also going to be a full moon, which offers its own energy. The full moon will marry the sense of completion and resolution to the opportunity to celebrate. You may see glimpses of new moon intentions coming true or being empowered.
And for this full moon, take a moment to celebrate any completions, closure or shifts you experience. If you have moonstone, it would be good to have it nearby to keep you calm all weekend and lean into the curve in an emotional sense, where the moon is concerned.
In fact, here's a quick ritual you could do - grab moonstone & amethyst, and place a slip of paper underneath them that offers up whatever you want for completion during the eclipse and the full moon.
I also suggest resting this weekend. Sounds like there could be changes. You'll need your sleep.
Wishing you a peaceful weekend!
