This Aries eclipse offers us a chance to take stock of our journey so far. And it's important to look at the things that may have been triggers for us in the past, and to ask ourselves if we have grown past them.
Have we moved on from the issues that used to cause us pain and upset? Are we able to see things from a different perspective?
But it's also a time to recognize that we have already come a long way. It is a chance to look at the lessons we have learned and the changes we have made, and to celebrate our growth.
Becoming Your Future Self
Use this Aries eclipse as an opportunity to look ahead and ask yourself who you want to be in the future.
What would you have to let go of in order to become your future self? What do you want to create in your life, and what can you do to move closer to your dreams?
This is a time of really leaning into what you know about who you are at a soul level, and what you know about your future self. How have you changed, grown, and evolved? What steps can you take to move closer to the person you want to be?
This can be a special time of self-reflection, and it's an opportunity to call it done and to neutralize the things that trigger us.
As we move through this Aries eclipse, let us recognize that we have already grown past it, and that we are capable of even more.
Neutralize the Things that Trigger You
You may be bound to a situation or person that is detrimental to your wellbeing. Are you ready to unlock the chains? - Penumbra Tarot
Here are 5 steps you can take to detach yourself from unhealthy reactions and empower yourself to respond, instead...
(1) Think about the situation or person who triggers the reaction in you.
What kind of thoughts come to mind, and how does it make you feel? Write them down.
(2) Ask yourself which memories from the past made you think and feel the same way. They are what fuels your hair-trigger reaction.
(3) How can you begin to make peace with or heal them?
(4) How can you rewrite those stories so that you can rewrite this one?
(5) Keep chipping away at it until you begin to react less and respond more.
Letting Go Meditation
Find a comfortable seated position and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in and out. Allow your mind to drift and focus on the feelings of being calm.
Visualize yourself in a peaceful and calming place. This could be a beach, a forest, or any other place that soothes you or brings you peace.
Now, imagine yourself releasing all of the emotions, thoughts, feelings and experiences that have been causing you distress or triggering you. Picture them floating away from you until they are out of sight.
Allow yourself to become aware of the peace that comes with being free from these triggers. Feel the relief of letting them go.
Now bring your awareness to your body. Feel any remaining tension and stress leaving your body as you take a few more deep breaths in and out.
When you are ready, slowly open your eyes.
(1) How did it feel to let go of the emotions and triggers that have been causing stress?
(2) What did I learn about myself?
(3) How has this process changed me?
(4) What kinds of things can I do to avoid reacting in the old ways in the future?
(5) If I do get triggered, what can I do to nurture myself?
Self-Love Celebration Ritual
To celebrate your growth, create a self-love ritual to honor yourself. This could be as simple as lighting a candle and writing down how you've grown, or as elaborate as creating a special ceremony. The key is to take a few moments to pause and give thanks for the journey we have made, and the lessons we have learned.
