So Mercury is in retrograde and we have a solar eclipse tomorrow and there’s a New Moon, so I think this post is coming to the blog at the perfect time.
I’m actually insanely excited that tomorrow is both a New Mood and a solar eclipse. Lots of good vibes coming this way.. And if you’ve followed the blog for a while you know I am all about good vibes.
A little breakdown of why you should be excited too, for more reasons than just being able to witness something extraordinary tomorrow.
The New Moon:
+ The new moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle and occurs approximately every 29 days. When there is a new moon, the Earth, Moon, and the Sun are positioned in a line.
+ The New Moon symbolizes new beginnings. The moon is so powerful, it is responsible for moving oceans, the ocean tides and for the growth of plants, and we as humans are also affected by this powerful energy. This is the perfect time to really look at you goals and the things you want in life or start new projects and really focus your energy into them.
+ During the first 9 hours of the New Moon (which is happening at 6pm UTC tomorrow), light some candles and incense, play soft music, and look back at your old goals and set new ones. Be very clear when writing out your new goals or wishes for your life, but keep them to 10 goals/wishes or less.

The Solar Eclipse:
+ In astrology, eclipses are like a portal for exponential growth. Specifically, eclipses are a time of rapid change, either from internal or external circumstances. Solar Eclipses always occur at the same time as a New Moon.
+ The changes that a solar eclipse ushers in are positive, as the sun is categorized as a positive planet in astrology. We may be pushed forward into a new job before we think we’re even ready, and the eclipse will show us just how ready we really are.
+ A solar eclipse is meant for us to demand more of ourselves, and the events around it will prove to be a test of our strength and resolve to achieve our dreams. Be sure to embrace the changes with open arms and an open mind.

A few ways to fully embrace all the goodness tomorrow:
+ Create mini vision boards- keep them in your office, your car, your planner… Wherever you’ll see them a few times a day to remind yourself of what you want in the future.
+ Write your goals down daily- Whatever you choose to write down tomorrow night, do this everyday. This will remind you what you’re striving for every single day. Write down your mini goals for the week or even your long-term goals, but re-write them or type them on the Notes App in your iPhone, every.single.day. I bought a new notebook just for things like this and I carry it around with me always. When you’re stressed or feeling like you’re not quote where you want to be, ready through these.
+ Celebrate the milestones you reach going forward. Even if that milestone is just completing what you set out to do that day. Celebrate it.
+ Meditate and visualize- I bought the book Girl Code a few weeks ago and this section really resonated with me. Cara Alwill Leyba is the author and says that when she was making the decision to leave her corporate job, she spent a ton of time meditating. Each morning she would lay in bed and visualize her ideal life: flying first-class to an amazing destination, waking up and cooking a healthy meal and enjoying a cup of coffee outside, working on her business everyday and surrounding herself with amazing clients that helped fuel her passion and grow her business. (More on this later).
Just doing these little things, can have such a serious impact and you’d be kinda stupid to not fully embrace tomorrow and what the Universe is doing.
Arthur is probably going to the hate the mess I’ll be making with all my magazine cutouts and glue and tape everywhere creating my vision boards..
Ok, back to Cara and her meditation and visualizing- she envisioned her ideal life everyday and suddenly it happened. All of it.
She’s managed to create this business and written books and cultivated this community for fellow chicks who love to hustle and it’s just insanely inspiring.
” We each have a unique path to walk in this life, ad there is a reason that yours is unfolding the way that it is.
Embrace your journey and look for the lessons. Believe in divine timing, and know that what is meant for you will not pass you”.
-Cara Alwill Leyba
Seriously grab a copy of her book(s) and start looking for those good vibes in your life.
I’m off to enjoy the last few hours of Sunday and read!
