Wooo, July was quite an intense month.
I follow astrology so naturally, I accredited feeling “off” to the recent rough and tumble of our solar system. In July, we survived some powerful moons, solar flares, six retrogrades, and the longest eclipse of the century. Since we are of the same matter and elements as that of space, the activity going on in the sky stirs us Earthlings up too. During this time, a lot of people I’ve talked to reported feeling over emotional, fatigued, or not quite themselves.
I’m not saying it’s okay to use the chaotic state of our solar system as a scapegoat for a series of mental breakdowns, but I am saying there is something to that old adage “as above, so below.”
Enter August. A new month, full of new energy and new opportunities. July and everything that happened back then is old news. And so here we are, moving forward! The final eclipse of the summer will grace us on August 11th. We’re almost clear of eclipse season— almost! Unfortunately, we will still have to brave those inimical retrogrades, but alas, I have a plan to help us make it through! To ensure that this month feels more smooth than the last, I have compiled a list of my favorite affirmations to remain balanced, grounded, and open.
Affirmations are powerful statements that help reframe the mind to harness a more positive perspective and outlook. If you repeat them often and actually believe them, you can make some incredible life changes!
That being said, my trusty crystal and I will be riding out the retrogrades and the last wave of eclipse season together repeating, journaling, and meditating to the affirmations below:
- I am powerful and persistent.
