Astrology is something that has interested me increasingly over recent months. The thought that our emotions and behavior is tied to something greater than our physical body (i.e. the forces of the universe) is something that greatly appeals to me. This month is a particularly powerful time for this side of spirituality, as a full solar eclipse will go down on August 21st.
This solar eclipse (when the moon moves in front of the sun and blocks out its light) is actually the second that will take place this month, the first -- a lunar eclipse -- having occurred on August 7th.
I'll be the first to admit that pretty much forever I've either completely dismissed or given major side eye to anything to do with astrology. As I was growing up, I had a deep appreciation for nature and the larger world, but never really thought to tie it to higher meanings such as moon phases and personal signs. I still have some pre-conceived notions about it all, which I'm working to overcome because I really feel there may be something to all of it. If nothing else, it's certainly a fun new subject to discover!
I have a long way to go in terms of understanding astrology and the impact it could have on my life, but I do know that I'm on a never-ending search for things that will provide meaning and help me get closer to living my best life. Increasingly, I want to feel powerful in my motherhood and frankly like a warrior goddess! I have a lot of work to do in this area, but I can tell you that I'm loving the journey.
My little ones also seem to be very curious about my new interest, and I wanted to share these sites that I love:
Do you have any great astrology resources? I'd love to hear! I will share more reflections as I dive deeper into this world.
