Well, so much for blogging every day in August. You know… I’m not even sorry. I haven’t been in the mood, and I’m okay with that. Things have been both slightly quiet and dull, but at the same time busy and I have a lot on my mind, just nothing I have wanted to write about. Honestly, I haven’t even picked up my camera and I’m just trying to figure out where this month went and what I’ve been doing.
This photo? Not new…
Not this one either.
I suppose I’m at one of those points where I’m not sure where I want this blog to go. Do I keep it up for myself? Do I attempt to make it something more that attracts more readership, and is that even possible considering I’m not exactly spectacular at writing or even that interesting. (Not fishing for compliments here, just genuinely unsure what I would blog about that would capture a vast amount of readers’ attention). I also just have other things going on, and I’m not sure if it wouldn’t be better to focus more on those things.
Maybe it’s it’s just the eclipse talking… I hear the effects can last a while and I know a lot of people have mentioned they have been feeling “off” for lack of a better word. Making rash decisions, being far more compulsive than usual or moody.
From my favorite Chani Nicholas for this week and to come:
During eclipses, we are asked to understand where in our lives we feel eclipsed. What issues we are harboring that tend to eclipse our ability to heal. What wounds rob us of joy and connection. So that we can bring a little bit more awareness to the work we need to do. So that we can be better agents in the process of the world’s healing. So that we can be better agents in our own healing.
The meaning of eclipses do not unfold in one day. They unpack themselves over longer stretches of time. They occur in the same sign over the course of a couple of years, revealing the potency of these portals slowly. This week’s total solar eclipse is one of a cluster occurring in Leo from 2017-2019. It is arguably the most dramatic of all of them and the most visually stunning, but remember that it isn’t the whole story.
We’ll have to live out the rest, in order to truly appreciate its significance.
She is always SPOT ON if you’re into that and want to read your own.
On that note, I think I have rambled enough. Time to go retire back into introverted thinking while outwardly maintaining a persona of productivity and optimism. 😉
