August Earth Energy Report: The Growth of the Changeling


My friends, it's time to get real! It's time to grow up and own who we are! And it's time to take responsibility for ourselves, our words, thoughts, and actions, as well as for what we allow in our lives, both individually and collectively.

Spring is the Egg, the season of birth and rebirth, while Summer (current) is the season of the Caterpillar, he who feeds abundantly to assure his metamorphosis in the Cocoon, which represents the season of Autumn. By Winter, his wings have grown in, he has escaped his cocoon, and is free to fly. Where are you on your journey?

Let's break down some of the energies:
With all of the current Retrograde planets, it feels like we can't move ahead, although expansive Jupiter says its okay. 
Mars Retro (the warrior, action, aggression, anger) is currently squaring Uranus (abrupt and sudden change), who is about to go Retrograde himself on August 7th.
And of course, Mercury is also Retrograde, causing all kinds of technology, communication, and travel problems.
Not to mention Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, and Chiron who are also in Retrograde...

Chiron is not a planet, he is an Asteroid. This means that we currently have 5 planets in Retro, with a 6th (Uranus) about to go Retro. So, from August 7th through August 19th, we really will have 6 planets in Retro (the memes have been claiming this was ongoing for weeks!). Then on August 19th, Mercury goes Direct, and on August 27th, Mars goes Direct. Now, before we go any further, I want, need to say this: We have this many planets in Retrograde most every year, and people don't freak out like they are now. This is due to the FEAR TACTICS being employed against us at this time. Don't feed the fears!

Ok, moving on!
My theory is that when a planet is in Retrograde, it brings its energies into our personal lives. In other words, with Mars Retro, it's about our anger, and how we use it, be it to learn and grow, or projecting it onto others without examining our internal processes. So, Retro then, is about seeing how the planet is affecting YOU and YOUR LIFE, and they give us a chance to examine our inner processes to see where WE can change for the better. Review, Rethink, Reexamine... and that brings us to Mercury, whose theme is all of those RE words, rethink, redo, etc. With Mercury being about communication and mental abilities, it's a chance to review how we communicate with ourselves, and with others. Think before you speak! Then there's Uranus, the planet of sudden and abrupt change... What changes can you make in your life - voluntarily - that will help you to move forward once all of the planets have gone Direct? Here's the thing: If you don't voluntarily look at what you may be doing that is holding you back, Uranus will step in and change things however he wants, and you'll have no say in the matter. So, use Mercury's Retro energies to RETHINK how you are doing things, before Uranus goes Retro, making it personal.

RESPONSIBILITY

This is an ongoing Theme with Saturn in Retro. You are responsible for yourself. Period. (well, unless you have young children or pets.. but I digress). You are not responsible for your neighbor, your partner, your parents or siblings, or for your friends. Yet, you ARE responsible for how you allow them to treat you.

Own who you are, that's #1 on Saturn's list of Responsibilities! Do you!

Now let's put Mars Retro into this picture, because that hidden or trapped anger you may be feeling right about now, is trying to alert you to what you are accepting, and how unhealthy that really is for you. Did you know that when we feel anger, it's actually towards ourselves? How is that? You become angry when another treats you in a way that you do not like, but may be afraid to speak up about it, so that anger becomes internalized, creating an emotional blockage within, that eventually you'll have to examine, heal, and release. So when you feel anger, look within to see your own culpability in the situation. It may not be about another treating you badly, as this is just an example, but there is always some personal responsibility trying to make itself known when we get angry. Looking within right away, we understand, and can move forward towards a solution. Waiting years to do so, creates problems on top of problems, that will need to be fully unraveled in the future, so save yourself some trouble later on, by looking within every chance you get!

Mars Square Uranus is about making the changes necessary so that we don't continue to feel anger at others for things that are our responsibility. It's all about our personal responsibility, and the responsibility that we CHOOSE to accept in our lives, at this time. If you're feeling overwhelmed (as I am), it's time to shuck off some of those self-imposed responsibilities, so that you have more freedom!

LIONS GATE

Wednesday the 8th of August is the 8-8 Lions Gate or Stargate, bringing in super charged energies from Leo the Lion and the Stars. Expect your dreams to be heightened, and Signs and Messengers to be abundant, especially during that day, but also from now through the 8th, as the energies intensify.

Other dates in August that add up to 8-8 will carry some of the residual energies of the Stargate, just not as strong. It's like the last lingering messages from the Star Worlds, something you might have missed on 8-8, that will come through on these dates. Those dates are: 8/17 and 8/26 (the Full Moon), which supercharges it too!

Speaking of StarGates, we do have one each month. In September, it will be 9-9, October has the 10-10 Stargate, November the 11:11:11 Stargate (as this is a #11 year), and December has the 12:12 Stargate. The November 11:11:11 Stargate will be our strongest this year. Plan now to be in a meditative space while this one is going on. I'd recommend doing the same for the 8-8 Stargate.

On 8-8, it will be a #9 day, representing endings and closure. Both revisitations of the 8-8 Stargate (8/17 and 8/26) will also be on #9 days, meaning that the Full Moon of August will be on a #9 day, with the Moon in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Big Endings are coming! Again, end things yourself before the planets do it for you!

We are currently in the Waning Thunder Moon, going towards the New Ripening Moon on August 11th, which is a 10:11 day or a #30/3 day, giving us new beginnings, illumination, messages from the Universe, and its the number associated with manifestation. Get ready!

THEMES AND KEYWORDS

Self Worth and Self Love are essential for us all at this time. Leo will bring you the lessons you need, to grow those in your life. Leo the Lion reminds me a bit of Mother Bear, she who roars when needed, but can be nurturing and loving with her cubs and partner. We have to know ourselves and learn to trust ourselves to do what is right for us, in every moment, and that is one of the lessons that Leo brings. It's time to learn to trust ourselves, and we can't do that if we don't believe in ourselves, or love ourselves. Let Leo the Lion guide you this month, so that you can stand firmly in who you are, and roar when needed!

The Lion is the King of the Jungle (or so he says!), and his Royalty theme is ever present. How you view yourself and how you treat yourself, are important. You are the Queen or King of your life. Act like it, he says!

I've done a study of the stones that were used in the crowns of royalty, and actually created an Orgonic Energy Device based on them. Check some of these out this month, using them in conjunction with each other, or putting them on your head, as a crown would fit. You may even enjoy looking up their meanings to find out why the Royalty used them...

ROYALTY STONES:
Garnet, Lapis Lazuli, Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, Pearl, Topaz, Sapphire, Diamonds, and Gold.
This is not all of them, of course, just the most popular!




THEMES: Resetting Your Foundation

We are being asked to look at what comprises our "foundation", what makes you who you are.

If you were to take off everything about you, including your beliefs, gifts, talents, and responsibilities, what is left?

What can you not live without? What makes you, you? That is your foundation, those things that determine how we respond to life. That is our "Truth". And at the core of each of us, we have our own "Truth", our own individual Foundation.

The Tower Tarot card appears when we need to start over from scratch, removing our foundation, as well as all of the "bricks" that we used to build our lives.

As we move closer to Uranus going Retrograde on August 7th, we are asked to look at those bricks - are they serving our highest good? Do they support your Truth? Do they fit into your Foundation? Are you holding on to "bricks" that you no longer need?

Sometimes it is necessary to clear out the old, crumbling bricks, so that we can rebuild our lives to support who we truly are. We are entering this time now.

August will be a month of many changes, and a time of those changes taking on a life of their own, once they've been released into the world.

You now have the option of creating the changes YOU want to see grow in the coming times. Make them special, make them about you and your Truth, and honor who you truly are. This is how we Grow Our Changes Into Existence (another Theme this month).


THE GROWTH OF THE CHANGELING

Do you remember the old Charles Atlas ads to grow bigger muscles, that were in comic books and such? That's what I'm picturing here, and this Bear Warrior would be the end result - one who is able to stand up for themselves, speak up loud and clear, roar when needed, depending on none. A strong person begins with belief in the self...

We are currently growing into the changes that we have created in our lives, just as the small boy must grow up to have all those muscles! It takes time. I remember going through my healing phase, a few years back, and I'd do the work but see no results, and this is what I was told then. It takes time for our bodies - both physical and energetic - to attune to the changes that we've created. One day, you just wake up and find that things really have changed, supposedly while you weren't looking, or even thinking about it, and that's how we are doing right now, waiting for the changes we want, to manifest in our lives.

At the same time, we are STILL working with Retrograde energies, and have plenty of time to look at other things that we may wish to change in our lives, or in our world. The time to make those changes is now. Then, when they are needed, they will be there, in place, waiting. Grow your changes like you grow your herbs and plants, feed them regularly, clear the weeds (clutter), and strengthen their roots by letting go of what isn't needed any more.

Healthy Roots are essential, but that's a subject for another day!

RETROGRADES AND COYOTE'S REVERSE TEACHINGS

Looking at Retrograde lessons is a bit like trying to decipher the reverse teachings of Coyote. We have to learn to look at things from many different angles or perspectives. You never know which energy or emotion associated with them, will be the one to bring you the breakthrough, so you have to look at them all.

Mars is about passion, fire, energy, anger, aggression, the Warrior... and more. Leo echoes many of these energies, adding fire to our lives during his season. And, with Fire being the Element of the South, and of Summer, we need to look at what role Fire plays in our lives. Are we using it in a healthy manner to burn away the old, or are we projecting our fire onto others, and expecting them to deal with it?

But that's not all! Look at the other Mars energies, and note how you are dealing with them all, if it's in a healthy way or not. Do the same with Mercury, Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Chiron, Uranus... how do you deal with changes? Easily, or fighting them every step of the way?

Another clue to understanding this Reverse Teachings energy is to look at the reverse meaning of Tarot Cards. They always shine a light on something we may miss, if we only look at the positive meaning of the card. The planets are the same way. They are here to help us to heal our lives, and to live a life that we enjoy. If something negative comes up, it's so that we can heal it or heal from it, not because we're being punished!

The entire Universe is supporting you in all that you do. Never doubt that!

IN CLOSING

Rethink some things this month. Learn to Roar! Learn to treat yourself better! And take REsponsibility for you, not for others!

We are building a stronger, more loving world, step by step. It might get messy, it might get ugly, it might be the most wonderful thing you've ever experienced. It all depends on how you see things. Turn it around, and see things differently. It's important!

New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer Energies - July 2018

Pink Sun from Wildfires
We currently have some tremendous energies coming into the Earth at this time. Jupiter has come out of Retrograde, and things have begun moving forward - somewhat - already. Due to the abundance of planets in Retro at this time, however, we do have some tricky alignments during the New Moon Eclipse that will be making their energies known. Let's first look at these!

TIMING

Sun and Moon are both in Cancer for this event.
July 12th: The New Moon is at 10:49pm EDT, 9:49pm CDT, 8:49pm MDT, and at 7:49pm PDT.
July 13th: The New Moon is at 2:49am UT

Partial Solar Eclipse: July 13th at 1:48am UT through July 13th at 4:13am UT
This Eclipse is not visible in most locations on Earth, however, it will still affect us all!

PLANETARY ALIGNMENTS FOR THE NEW MOON ECLIPSE

Venus in Virgo Quincunx Mars Rx in Aquarius - Venus wins, embrace love.
Mars Rx in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus - Uranus wins, embrace change.
Pluto Rx in Capricorn Oppose Sun and Moon in Cancer - Tricky! Examine your motives and subconscious fears while the Sun and Moon are shining their light on them. What is holding you back from being your true self? Find the blockage!
Chiron Rx in Aries Quincunx Venus in Virgo - Healing Love from Venus to the Wounded Warrior
North Node in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus - Change and Karma - you get what you give. Karma calls...
North Node in Leo Quincunx Saturn Rx in Capricorn - Discipline and Karma - You Create Your Experience.
Mercury in Leo Square Jupiter in Scorpio - Expansion may be hampered by communication. Keep things close to your chest for now.

And that's not all of it, I'm sure. These are just the big ones that stood out for me.

Granted, these are simplistic definitions of the energies of these planets and their alignments, yet you can always learn more from a qualified Astrologer. That is not me (smile!). I'm here to help you to get to the ROOT of the problem, and to do that, I look at the ROOT energies, and what they are trying to help us with. More on this in a minute!

In addition to all of this, by the New Moon, we will have moved out of the Grand Water Trine, but pick up a Grand Earth Trine, between Venus, Uranus, and Saturn.

Currently, as we are only 3 days away from this event, the planets are already moving into these alignments. Right now, the following are active: (as of 10am MDT 7/10/18)

Pluto Rx in Capricorn Oppose Sun in Cancer - a beginning taste of the New Moon alignments, with the Sun shining his light on our inner issues.
Chiron Rx in Aries Quincunx Venus in Virgo - same as above
North Node in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus - same as above
North Node in Leo Quincunx Saturn Rx in Capricorn - same as above
Mercury in Leo Square Jupiter in Scorpio - same as above
And we are currently STILL in the Grand Water Trine, and the Grand Earth Trine has already begun.

Some of these alignments are already active, in other words, and we are already dealing with them. There is nothing to fear. Do not allow the fear tactics of others, cause you distress, especially during the next few days. As I discussed on the FB page this morning, there are two base emotions: Fear and Love. The one that you embrace during the next few days, will determine how these energies affect you. Stay positive, keep your vibrational level high, stay grounded, cleansed, and purified. Let no one entice you into fear mentality.

THE MESSAGES AND LESSONS


The reason that I harp so much on Healing Your Life, is because we have these difficult alignments coming up regularly that affect us all. Retrograde Planets turn the energy towards our inner world, and help us to heal within ourselves. When you have healed your life, the difficult alignments don't hinder you as much, nor affect you as negatively as they may others. If you haven't, they will force you to confront yourself and your issues. This is why so many have problems when we have these difficult alignments and Retrogrades, they fear the inner confrontation, they avoid it, they turn away from it, and in doing so, are turning away from healing themselves, and choosing to remain in fear.

If you have healed your life, you might only see the issues reflected in others, and knowing that they are going through a difficult time, this will tell you to help where you can, and to pull your energy back before their negativity affects you. It's a heads up that to go out in public, you may encounter angry people. Knowing what the energies of each planet are, will help you tremendously to manage the energies much better, and in a much more positive way.

The following are Root Messages from the planets:
Uranus: Initiate your own changes to be less affected by its energies
Pluto: Examine your motivations (what motivates you), and what's keeping you from moving forward (regeneration).
Venus: Self love, love for others - heal your Heart Chakra!
Mars: Deal with your anger issues!
And so forth...

Know that the Universe wants you to have the best experience possible in this lifetime. It wants you to accomplish the goals that you set out for yourself in your Life Plan, before you came to the Earth. The Universe is NOT punishing us with these harsh transits! It is helping us to heal. If you are healed, they aren't harsh. When we work WITH the energies of each transit, as mentioned in their Root Messages, you learn, grow, and mature more with each one that you pass through. It also helps us to become more self aware.

The same goes for the Stargates, such as the 7-7 Stargate that we just completed. Every one that you work with, opens you up even more. Hold these Stargate days as Sacred days, and monitor your thoughts and positivity level on each of these days, adding in a little outdoor meditation time to help you to integrate the energies. Do the same thing for the Eclipses, by recognizing that they, too, are Sacred, and spend your time accordingly. Each time around the Wheel of the Year, each StarGate and Eclipse you experience, adds to your overall growth - if you are working WITH the energies!!!

CHARGING STONES DURING SOLAR ECLIPSE

The Universe informed me last night that this Eclipse would be a prime opportunity to charge specific stones. Those stones are:

Moldavite, Tektite, and Fulgurite especially!
Yellow High Vibrational Stones: Libyan Desert Glass, Golden Healer, Yellow Tourmaline, Heliodor, Golden Labradorite, Golden Selenite, Golden Obsidian, Amber, Citrine, Yellow Sapphire, Sunstone, and Tiger Eye (to empower you!).

Working with Moldavite helps you to integrate change into your life, more quickly, while Fulgurite helps you to initiate change, by making wishes on it. Work with either of these on that day, to help with the energies.

Any stones that are placed out under the light of this New Moon Eclipse, will assist you in the future, in bringing change into your life, so you could also program a Crystal Quartz with the energies of change by putting it out during this time.

In addition, if you have one of my Golden Rainbow Ray Light Healing Orgonic Energy Devices, place it outside during this Eclipse to recharge and reprogram itself. Then use it daily!


DIVINE FEMININE

A Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon moves in front of the Sun, eclipsing his light for a period of time. This asserts the feminine over the masculine during the event. Many, due to their beliefs, will not venture outside during this Sacred time between the Sun and the Moon, to show their respect for their union. And yet others, hold no respect for the process at all... and so it goes. You do you!

The energies seem to be quite different this year, in that it seems more like we are in a feminine season, than a masculine one, which is what it actually is, Summer is masculine. It is a time when we are out and about in the outside or physical world, more so than when we are alone in our caves in the cold months. This may be due to the Divine Feminine awakening that is currently taking place on our planet. Now, this is not about women. It's not about goddesses. It's about eliminating toxic masculinity that insists that it is superior, and angry about it. To be clear, the feeling of superiority, is an Ego issue, not necessarily a masculine issue. It affects us all.

Being sensitive, showing one's emotions, being compassionate towards self and others, and feeling empathy for others, are all "feminine" traits, as is nurturing self and others. None of these are strictly things that only womyn do, and it's time to let go of that belief. It's masculine to show your emotions, to express how you feel, and to nurture yourself and give yourself what YOU need for a change.

Our emotions are the gateway to our psychic abilities, as I explained in my book, "The Psychic Key: Opening Doorways in Your Mind". To block your emotions, is to block your psychic abilities. THIS is one of the main reasons why it is so important to embrace your emotions, express them, and heal them if need be. And if you think that emotions are strictly for the feminine gender, please, examine your beliefs, and then let yourself grieve over the suffering you have been trained to endure - suppression of the true self.

There are MANY in this world right now who honor the feminine principles, who honor their emotions, who honor their own path, and know that it is up to them to heal their own lives. This is why we have come so far in balancing the Divine Feminine now. Keep doing what you are doing, keep feeling life itself, and we empower ourselves more each day.

Hope is never lost, until you give up on you. There is always a way forward. We may be suffering right now, but the Wheel will again turn, and things will turn around when it happens. This Eclipse is another doorway into bringing those opportunities into being. Make your New Moon wishes! Dream big! Wish for things that will serve the highest good of us all! And do so with as much positivity, faith, and belief as you can muster!

Everything in my life serves my highest good... even the lessons we are confronted with.
Aim higher than ever before!

CHANGE

Change is a Keyword for us this month, and embracing and/or initiating Change, is going to be essential. That's what Eclipses do, they bring change. Don't stay stuck where you are, if you can do something about it, and you can always do something about it!!! Here is my answer to this issue:

COYOTE WISDOM TEACHINGS: MASTER CLASS IN REVERSE TEACHINGS

I will be conducting a Master Class on the Teachings of Coyote, the current and upcoming Retrograde motion planetary energies, and the Reverse Teachings of the Medicine Wheel, to help us all to embrace the changes that are facing us, both individually and collectively. This class WILL change your life!

One of the Medicine Teachers of the Direction of South, is Coyote. He is known for showing us how ridiculous we can sometimes look or act, by doing the same himself, allowing us to see ourselves more clearly.
He goes about things in a different way than others do, and shares his "backwards" teachings with us, to help us to understand everything better.
There are some Coyote Medicine People in our world who do everything backwards, in order to better demonstrate and emulate his teachings.
Yet Coyote is best known for his humor, for in making us laugh at ourselves, we drop the seriousness that we have become mired in, and we lighten up, and this enables us to see things differently.
I am about to embark on a journey into the Teachings of Coyote, and I want to invite you to join in.
These teachings are a way to create change for the better in our lives. We will also be working with the energies of Uranus, the Agent of Change, as he prepares to go Retrograde in a month's time, on August 7th.
We will be working with ALL of the currently Retrograde planets, and their Reverse Teachings, and we will explore the Reverse Teachings of the Medicine Wheel, as they apply to our quest for change.
This is about changing our lives. It is radical change that we are seeking, as well as a deeper understanding of how these energies work in our world.
This Master Class will be hosted in a PRIVATE Facebook group. It will involve discussion, shared teachings, videos, and a program specifically designed to create radical, positive change in our lives. Individual consultations will be ongoing for the duration of the class.
This program will last through the New Moon in October, when many of the currently retrograding planets have moved to direct motion.
Astrologically, due to all of the Retrograde planets, we can't move ahead until October anyway, so why not stop and examine the potential in Coyote's teachings? 😁
There will be a $50 fee for this Master Class, and then you will be added to the private group. The group teachings will begin on the New Moon on the 12th/13th of July, but we will have thru next weekend to get acclimated. That gives you only a week to sign up.
I hope you will join me!

Please go to my website to sign up for this class:
Michelle Hawksong Phillips - Master Class

~~~~~~~~~~~

One last thought: This New Moon will be the Thunder Moon, and Thunder is a Catalyzer of Change. Get ready! It's happening!!

At this time, I have shared with you all that has come to me on this subject. If more comes up, I will share it, either here, or on The Touch the Earth Page on Facebook, where I post regular updates. Connect with me there, if you'd like.

Happy New Moon,
and a power-filled Eclipse to us all!

July Energy Report: Inner Child, Freedom, and Transformation


It's time for me to take a different perspective on the monthly Energy Reports. First of all, I'm not an Astrologer. I'm a Channel, Seer, Intuitive, and Seeker of Wisdom in all forms. This has led me to where I am now in my life, and it's time to use these gifts to serve the highest good of us all, including myself. I will continue to use Numerology and Astrology to explain the why's of the energies, yet I must use my intuition to see the energies. Because, you see, I am an Energy Reader, I instinctively feel the current energies, the energies of others, and the mysteries of the Universe.

Funny story: I used to read Tarot Cards publicly, and after a while I realized that they were just a prop. I could read without them, yet the clients needed the prop to understand how I arrived at my answers. So I continued to use them. But I'm not a Tarot Reader. I'm an Energy Reader! (smile!)

We've reached the point in our history when we have to be who we are. This Waning Moon has us seeking to Know Ourselves more deeply. In this process, we discover who we really are, what our gifts really are, and how best we can use them to serve all.

Me? I'm a Healer, and see almost everything as an opportunity to heal in our lives. That's what I talk about, that's what I do, and that's what we're going to discover more of here, in this blog. We're going to look at the overall energies, and how they can help us to heal, both individually and collectively, because, well, we need it right now. There are, unfortunately, many in this world who need to heal who are not even aware of that need. Their issues, when not healed, begin being projected out into the world. When we have a "leader" who is not healed, his issues become ours, if they weren't already.... We resonate with that which we emulate, or those of like mind. Supporters of this regime, are all on the same vibrational level as the unhealed man in charge, echoing his principles. When we learn better, we resonate higher. If we don't, we stay mired in that low vibrational energy. And now it's affecting us all, so it's time to talk about how to heal it.

South/Fire Qualities (Copyright Michelle Phillips)
HEALING YOUR INNER CHILD

On Summer Solstice, the Sun moved into the Direction of South on the Medicine Wheel, welcoming in the season of Summer. Each Direction on the Wheel, carries certain lessons and energies, for us to learn about as we traverse that season. Each and every time around the Wheel, facing each Direction, we learn a different one of their lessons, or we receive a deeper understanding of one of it's qualities or lessons.

In the Direction of South, lies the Element of Fire, which carries it's own lessons around anger, passion, and our inner fire or motivation. Summer is the season of growth in our gardens, and we are working towards what we will be harvesting come Autumn Equinox. This, too, applies to our lives. What did we give birth to on Spring Equinox? It should be growing well now. It's time to weed the garden, and get rid of the plants or ideas that didn't pan out, that won't grow to fruition, so that the ones who can, have enough energy to do so. Feed those ideas well!

Coyote lives in the South, reminding us to have a sense of humor. Laughter is the best Medicine, he says, as he makes us laugh at ourselves and our silly mistakes. Don't take life too seriously, he reminds us, no one gets out alive.

Each Direction represents a portion of our lives. East/Spring is birth, South/Summer is childhood, West/Autumn is adulthood, and North/Winter is the home of the Elders. With South being about our childhoods, it's a good time to get outdoors and play. Yet, childhood was traumatic for many, and these are some of the ones who are projecting their issues out into the world, because they have yet to heal their childhood wounds.

If you were raised being pushed away from your parents, you might have no respect for the bond between parent and child, because, of course, you have no understanding of it. If you were abused as a child, you may not have any self esteem or belief in yourself. If you were creatively stifled as a child, you might have a hard time expressing yourself creatively, or even with doing the work that you've chosen to do in this lifetime, if it involves a creative pursuit. This stifles your passion, as do many other things, such as sexual abuse, or just being told not to speak, for when we can't speak our passions, they become stifled. Pain and suffering as a child has to be resolved as an adult, or we become stifled, and unable to move beyond the emotions and pain of our childhood.

Love and Self Worth begin within, yet are much stronger when we have a loving and supportive childhood. I've said it before, there are many in this world with issues affecting their Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras, which are responsible for our senses of love and self worth, respectively. Heal the childhood wounds, to begin repairing the damage done, and to replace the old programming with kinder, more loving thoughts, that support who you really are.

Our Inner Child deserves to feel safe, supported, and loved, in all ways, so that they can be free to play and have fun. If you aren't able to do that, then look at the past and see where your childhood may have been stifled. Then support and love yourself enough to turn it around!

What happens individually, is reflected in the Collective, and in the Cosmos.
Right now, the reflection looks dim collectively. It's time to See Clearly all that is holding us back, so we can stop harming others with our pain. Release anything that is holding you back from joy!

ASTROLOGY FOR JULY

Currently, many of the big player planets are in Retrograde: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. We have Mercury going Retro this month, from 7/26 thru 8/19, and he enters the Shadow Zone of Retrograde on July 7th... that's coming up soon! IF you are planning on backing up your computer, do it before the 7th!!!

Uranus will go Retrograde in August, and Venus will go Retro in October, so they are the only ones in Direct Motion at this time, and Uranus is a very slow mover! Jupiter comes out of Retro on July 10th, but the big giant is also a slow mover and will remain in Scorpio for the remainder of the year.

Planets in Retro are slow moving, and going backwards, which keeps them in the same astrological sign for a long time. And when they are slow movers like Uranus and Jupiter, they remain in the same sign for a long time anyway. So... bottom line: pretty much what we're seeing now, is how it's going to be for the next few months, until the planets begin coming out of Retrograde and going forward again, with the exception of Venus, who strolls by each one, blowing kisses, and the Moon who checks them all out a couple of times a month, to make sure they're behaving!

Then there are the Asteroids. Vesta is currently Retro, and Chiron the Wounded Healer goes Retro on July 5th. Then in October, Juno goes Retro. The one to pay attention to here is Chiron, however, as He will rub a few planets the wrong way as he sinks into his Retro cycle. Most notably, Saturn, the planet of restriction, discipline, and rules. It's hard to heal our lives when we feel restricted, yet Chiron's Retro cycle brings his energies within, as are Saturn's, where they'll have to fight it out. If you really want to heal, you'll do it, because you'll see the things that have been RESTRICTING you, your path, or your life. That's good news!

The rest of them square up, oppose each other, and just generally get on each others nerves, as many of us are doing right now. And that continues. It's up to us to find the calm within the storm, and embrace it within us. Let the Sun in Cancer lead the way. Home is where the heart is, and you can enjoy the month basking in his rays. When emotions come up, listen deeply, heal them, and get back to the Water to rinse it all away.

The New Thunder Moon will be on July 12th in Cancer, involving a partial Solar Eclipse. Eclipses are bursts of energy that help us to move forward again, or to make the necessary changes in our lives. During this one, both the Sun and the Moon are conjunct in Cancer, the sign of the Crab, and our watery emotions. Expect it to be an emotional time.

The Full Thunder Moon will be on July 27th in Aquarius, involving a total Lunar Eclipse. This one happens on a #9 day, making it about endings and closure. My thoughts on this is to ask for what needs to be healed to be brought to fullness so that we can clearly see and understand it, to release it forever. We could also ask that others understand what needs to be ended, or brought to a close in our world. This will be a powerful time, use these energies well! We'll talk more about this one as the month goes on.

NUMEROLOGY


Each month, there are specific dates that stand out for me, and I'm never sure why! It's like they call out to me and say, me me me!!! begging me to give them my attention. This month, those dates are:

July 11th - The day before the New Moon, it's a double Master Number 11 day.
July 19th - is day #200 of the year, and we move into the feminine number sequences, as they begin with 2. The message that I was given for this day is: Grow!!!
July 20th - is a triple Master Number 11 day
July 29th - is a double Master Number 11 day, and the first day of week #31 (3+1=4), with 4 indicating New Foundations upon which to build the new.

The Week of July 15 - 21 is week #29 of the year (2+9=11), and every day of that week will carry double Master Number 11 energies. If you are doing any magickal work growing anything in your life, this is the week to do so.

Because I've been taught to look at numbers differently, and to add them differently - or in several ways - I get insights in this way, as well. July's numbers are fairly straightforward this time, as the 1st of July was a #1 day, the 2nd a #2 day, and so forth. The 17th, for instance, would be a #8 day, so we're simply adding the date together. With me so far?

Here's another way to look at it all. We are in a #11 year, so every single day this year carries those Master #11 energies. Here's another way to visualize it:
July 1st = 1:11 (a #1 day in a #11 year)
July 2nd = 2:11
July 11 = 7:11:11 or even 2:11
July 27th = 9:11
July 2018 = 7:11

These are the time prompts that I regularly receive. Lately, it's been all 711, 811, or 911's, and we will have several of those this month, so heads up. I know not why, but I do see it as a positive.

Number 11 is about staying positive no matter what happens, which gives us our name for the month of July: "Positivity Please!" Month. No matter what is going on, DO NOT ALLOW anything to take you away from positivity. We must now imagine a much better world, and hold to that vision with all that we have, never faltering.

Please, stay positive!

One last thought here: Last year, just before Summer Solstice I think, I was told that it's all downhill from here. While many many things have gone downhill in the past year, I'm thinking now that perhaps we have not yet seen the full extent of this message manifesting. Things have to go downhill, in order to make room for the new. We have to see and understand clearly all that has been done to us for the duration of this country, to realize what the problems really are. I don't feel that we've seen it all yet, much more will be revealed. As these revelations occur, we gain another piece of the puzzle. Yet, we still cannot make out what the puzzle is a picture of, for we don't yet have enough of the pieces. Or, in other words, we are not yet seeing the Big Picture. Expect that to happen soon, perhaps even this month. This is a place that we have to get to, in order to transform all that we are, into something that lives sustainably with All of Life, so we have to see the oil pipelines bursting, to recognize the importance of the Earth and the Water. We have to see the horror of how we are treating children, to realize that we, ourselves, were treated horribly, to heal that wound within us, and to then heal it in our world.

It's all about the Big Picture this time around. Keep collecting those puzzle pieces, keep healing whatever comes up, keep nurturing yourself, and keep an aura of positivity around you. These are things that we CAN do. Help where you can, show love and kindness to all, be the change that you want to see in the world... maintain the traits that you hold that make you who you are, a loving and positive person holding the light for us all.

UNITY MESSAGES



From the Facebook Page, Touch the Earth, on Saturday 30 June:

At times, it can be beneficial to reflect back on how we arrived at the present moment. This time around, recognizing all of the dysfunction that has been fed to us as the norm.
Since time immemorial, we have been divided into segments of the population, separated by color, age, religious doctrine, sex, and heritage. How did it happen? Every form we've ever been asked to fill out, asks us these questions, reinforcing in us our differences.
Why have we been intentionally divided?
Because together, we are a formidable force, and they know this.
We are easier to manage if we are fighting amongst ourselves. And if we're busy infighting, we have no compunction to fight them. Yet, in reality, they have brought us here. Perhaps intentionally...
All of this fighting keeps us at a low vibrational level. It tires us at our cores. It's exhausting, stressful, and anxiety-inducing.
People who are tired and stressed out, don't fight back.
Then they push us to work more, work harder, and we're so tired that nothing else is possible. We neglect ourselves, our health, our friends and family, all in an effort to keep from sinking.
Yet, when I look around me today, I don't see a people whose spirit is broken. I see a nation of survivors, each lost in their own pain, perhaps, but still ready to fight for what they believe in.
We've lost our connection to each other, and to the natural world around us. We've lost our magick, our belief in ourselves, and our connection to the Spiritual world.
We've lost the ability to communicate with each other.
Deep down in our hearts, we all want and need the same things: love, health, and to not only survive, but to thrive. We want to be treated equally. We all want to leave a better world for our descendants.
Today, just for a moment, reflect on what you have in common with those you've been separated from, those that may be different from you. Then start a conversation to recognize your commonalities, not your differences.
Never allow the fears of others, to make you someone that you are not. We are all human, and while we are here, we have to live together on this planet. It should no longer be about what divides us, but instead about how we can come together, and work together, to insure a better future for us all.
A bundle of sticks is strong, while a single twig can be easily broken... ~Tecumseh
Unite.


From the Facebook Page, Touch the Earth, on Monday, July 2nd:

A couple of days ago I shared a Unity post with you, where we discussed how we are separated into categories of color, age, religious doctrine, sex, and heritage, and the why's of this division.
There are other ways we are continually being separated and divided, such as our political party, or even our favorite sports team...
ALL of these are merely LABELS that have, in most cases, been placed upon us, which create competition amongst us. Labels that don't describe who we really are. Yet we continue to wear them...
Who are you, outside of the labels that have been assigned to you? What qualities do you embrace? What morals? What defines your character, or your belief system, or how you live your life? What are your Beliefs? Because those are who we are.
During this Waning Moon, we can benefit from releasing all that we are not. These labels are a good place to start. Don't be defined by how others may label you. Create your own character, your own values, your own Truth of who you are.
Be true to you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Going forward, I may not be sharing "monthly" energy reports, because that holds me to a schedule, and I'm more of a feel the energy then talk about it, kind of person. It comes when it comes, not just on the first of the month! So, I'm not cutting out the Energy Reports, I'm modifying them. I'll share whatever comes to me for the month, or whatever needs to be discussed, as, at this time, there is much that we need to talk about, and it's not all about the "forecast". I'm a Big Picture type of person too, and that's what has been revealed to me lately. I will continue discussing those subjects here, as they are needed. There is much that we need to See and Understand Clearly at this time. It is my goal to bring you those things, and not limit ourselves to any one framework. Much of what I share here, has been outlined in posts on the Touch the Earth Page on Facebook, so follow me there to stay more up to date on the energies! You could also follow me on Instagram, where I share these posts, as well. I am @RevMichelle on Instagram.

Then come back here for some storytelling! It's more fun that way!

Have a great month!
I'll be back when I have more energy notes for you! Stay tuned!
