This has been our internal conflict for a very long time. But we’re currently experiencing breakthroughs that we haven’t seen thus far on the planet.

For some people, this involves endings and release. For others, it might include intense dreams, psychic experiences or spiritual awakenings. And others finally have some real confidence and clarity for living true to self in a world that pressures us to live otherwise.

Energy coming through the 8-8 Lion’s Gate portal as the Earth, Sun, and star Sirius align only enhances our own personal alignment, as well as waking up out of the painful, dark valleys, to a soft morning glow.

It might feel like you’ve finally got a breather, or you can see all kinds of exciting visions for your most authentic life ahead.

As tempting as it might be to plow forward with all the masculine energies of the Aquarian Full Moon lunar eclipse, it’s not yet time. 

We can’t see straight just yet. If we push ourselves forward now, we’ll likely meet with some kind of unpleasant disaster. And we’ll have to humbly retreat back to square one.

With the Moon void-of-course today and moving into Pisces tonight, it’s a good day to keep things low key. If you can use today for introspection, even better. We’ve still got some fears and insecurities within, hiding in unknown crevices; the Cosmos aren’t so foolish to let us to move on without dealing with them first.

The rest of this week and next week help us face and let go of those pesky insecurities so we can rise to our full potential which requires full self-confidence. We also need to bring our dreams a little more down to earth, while keeping the dream alive. So stay calm, avoid jumping in the pool just yet, and prepare for a little more inner work at Mercury retrograde on August 12. Also watch for giving in to unsatisfying indulgences as an attempt to escape catharsis and transformation.

May your life be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish

Tarot Card of the Day

The Hanged Man Reversed

Someone feels it’s important to fit in with the crowd. Maybe they’re hanging on to past self-concepts or constricting labels, rather than embracing their self-empowered, carefree soul. Instead of welcoming the inner transformation required to experience a more successful life, or a more intimate or accepting love, they clutch the false security of human institutions – even if they’re miserable. Or perhaps they fear the pain of progress, so progress isn’t made.
