I would love to share this wonderful piece by Sophie Bashford, the spiritual teacher, whose work I really enjoy. In this piece she poetically describes the mysteries behind the current Lunar Eclipse in Libra:
Lunar Eclipse in Libra
A Full Moon Eclipse, and now the Goddess will take you to where you truly need to be.
You can drop the act, drop the pretence, drop the defences, drop the hard ego control, drop the 'need to know', drop everything.
Let it go, because you never had the reins anyway.
This is it. Everything has now come to this.
You will be taken to where you need to be: for your heart's deepest fulfilment, your contract with the Divine to be enacted, the meeting with your sacred Self to occur, the purpose that you asked to fulfil to birth itself through you.
This may look different for everyone in physical reality, but the roots of this are planted firmly in the same spiritual soil.
You are now going to stop running from your Self.
Every diversion tactic that your ego created will now end. You will be brought to your knees if that is what you need.
The Goddess will now guide you towards exactly what your Soul most needs in order to fully merge with Her, and accept her medicine for total self-realisation and activation of Her fullest Gifts.
Whatever, and whoever, you most need for complete realignment with the Truth of your Sacred Self will now manifest - rapidly.
Perhaps you need to be out of intimate relationships for a while if that is where you hide from yourself. Perhaps you need to devote your entire heart, body and spirit to the Divine, and learn to discern your own voice and feelings from the crowd. Perhaps there, you will discover the guidance that has been long drowned out by other people's voices.
Perhaps you are now ready for a consuming, all-enveloping dive into sacred intimacy. Perhaps you spent a lifetime with your heart defending against the opening that is necessary for this kind of connection. Perhaps this relationship will confront you with a depth and desire that you never felt was possible, and in truth, scares you. But it is here, it is coming, you are ready.
Perhaps you need to use your talents, creative gifts and soul wisdom in places and forms that really challenge your ego's imposed limits. Perhaps you are being taken so deep into the Heart of the Goddess, that you will have no choice but to surrender to Her Plan in ways that melt your Soul, take you up against your darkest fears, plunge you unapologetically into the core of the Unknown.
The Goddess is working through you with a sacred vigour that is unsurpassed and previously unseen.
This is it: there is nowhere for you to hide.
Your power is needed. Whatever you require to attune and open to this divine power will now be dispensed. You will have to follow the guidance: there is no other option.
Eclipses are blunt, definite, unavoidable.
The energy of the Goddess is now blunt, definite, unavoidable.
You're ready to come face to face with your Self. No more running. If you must be still, you'll be made to stay with yourself. If you must purify - from anything: relationships, work, drugs, food, whatever - you'll be grounded until you do. If you must now go forward and take your place with someone, something, some place, some challenge, some project - you'll find yourself there.
This is YOU. This is the Divine Plan in action. This is your Highest Self showing you that It is greater, wider, stronger and capable of more Love than you ever realised.
You are destined for deep connection, deep truth, deep work, deep power.
The Eclipse now moves your terrified ego out of the way and allows your heart to lead.
Get on your knees if you are not already there. You are a true vessel for the Goddess: get ready to see how She really works."
