Let yourself embrace your feelings, knowing they are meant to come like waves as they carry you to new shores of understanding. It's normal to feel heavy or disorientated following an eclipse, so take the time necessary to go slow, brew a cup of lemongrass tea and run a warm bath. Sleep in today, settle into your home and as you create space to reflect, let the decisions of the eclipse settle into your heart like the turning point you've been waiting for.  


Post-eclipses can often bring the feeling of an energetic hangover, as you can feel tired, disorientated or overwhelmed. While this eclipse was a lunar one, so it would have affected you more emotionally, those feelings may be intensified, yet there is a glimmer of hope. It's expected that after a significant celestial event, the cosmos can often be a bit easier or gentler to help you gradually shift into a new chapter, but that is not the case with today's energy.



Mars, the planet that rules passion and ambition, will align with Mercury, the planet of communication, in Scorpio. Together, these two planets bring a desire for change, decisive action and quick decision-making, signifying that while you need to rest and care for yourself today, you must also be prepared to move toward newness.  


The universe is always working in perfect divine timing, and while you may feel like it's not the right time for a meaningful conversation or the moment to take a leap of faith — there may be other plans in store for you. It's essential to find a balance today between pushing yourself to do something versus letting this opportunity pass you by.

Focus on starting your day off slow, let the energy of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse be washed away and then focus on what you are being promoted to decide on.

By tending to your own needs first, you're going to more likely find success and courage in what you need to tend to in the evening hours, as long as you remember that the moment is always yours to make perfect for anything — including the significant changes you've been seeking.
