The Line in the Sand

“Everybody's life is either a warning or an example. You've got to decide what you're gonna be and you have to draw a line in the sand.” -Tony Robbins

“It was possible to grow up in an instant, that you could look down and see the line in the sand dividing your life now from what it used to be.” - Jodi Picoult

“You will never find people who truly grasp the cosmic perspective such as the entire community of astrophysicists leading nations into battle. No, that doesn't happen. When you have a cosmic perspective, there's this little speck called Earth and you say you're going to do what? You're on this side of a line in the sand and you want to kill people for what? “- Neil deGrasse Tyson

July’s cosmic events herald the largest opening in human consciousness to date since the start of the Ascension process.  Over the next 4 months there will be great leaps and change in the collective, on the planet and in our lives. We now more attuned to where our line in the sand is after a major clearing in June, which focused on engaging wholeheartedly with our sense of empowerment, creativity and pleasure (2nd chakra) combined with our joyful heart (4th chakra) to wisely create what we truly want.  In July the cosmic energies that are streaming in this month are drawing a firm line in terms of embodying more feminine co-creative principles and inclusive moral code. Here are the highlights and what we can expect:

More galactic information and consciousness will be released through the 3 upcoming eclipses (2 in July, 1 in Aug), Mercury Retrograde and other planetary alignments.  This new coding contains a deeper communion with all life forms earthly and universally. And will assist in seeing more through the illusion of desire, needing or wanting.  There will also be more elimination of the old pattern of material wants, addictions, “wanting”/“needing”,competition, and “better than” ego based thoughts. We will be shifting to more allowing of interdependent relationships based on respect, cooperation and love.  Initiatives that actually empower everyone will be on the rise, because peacefully-minded people are a huge support to the genuine security of all.

We can access this incoming information by being evermore emancipated, strong, conscious, compassionate, free of rigid thoughts, practicing stillness of the mind, and needing to learn to navigate and trust the laws of nature, and metaphysics.  Our brain, heart and body are constantly being re-wired for this new sense of reality, hence the continuation of psycho-physical Ascension symptoms.

There will be great breakthroughs in science over the coming months, more people seeking a sense of spirituality for meaning as the old continues to fall, more push from our inner selves to open up to Oneness on earth and through feeling compelled for greater knowledge of the galaxies around us.

Our senses of multi-dimensional consciousness will expand evermore, and those caught in the old 4th Dimensional paradigms of fear and separation will find it harder to stay in that reality and have a tribe that will support them - this also comes to play in politics, science, religion, business, institutions of any kind - anything in our world that seeks to divide and conquer will be on a more slippery slope.  More and more are seeing through this kind of illusion and there will be more transparency to allow people to see that division, exclusion and oppression of others (including our planet and animals), to allow others to have liberation or gain the upper hand is a false moral principle.  We are just not buying into this BS anymore as our intuition grows.

This is the reason we have felt in June like the bottom is dropping out underneath us.  That our sense of who we are is falling apart, being picked apart and only that which is empowered, free, compassionate and balanced will remain.  So July is where we draw our line in the sand, where we start to hone the sense of what we need, how we find passion, harmony and our equilibrium in what we feel, think and say in our life.  Those who have genuine tolerance, compassion and acceptance for their fellow humans, and who feel a real sense of social responsibility will excel in life. Finally. Really, it’s true! So there will be more honest conversations needed in July, and the need to keep the ego in check as we shift into this growing reality.  

Our ego will continue to drop away (so be prepared for more inner struggle with your mind), to be replaced by our Sovereign Self, along with more peace, wisdom, shrewdness and inner knowing. We are learning to work with co-creative trust, and move with a cosmic rhythm which cannot be controlled by our ego, or solely our Will or a concrete plan. In doing so we open to more ease, more receiving and to greater possibilities than what we thought of.  We can engage more passionately and fully in life, take more risk and be more courageous if we trust that the universe has our back. More of us will be heading this way during July if we surrender to it!

Trust, Be Still, Receive, Act, Let go of the outcome, Repeat

In service,


Psychospiritual and Psycho-physical symptoms for July:  Be careful about what you think and say this month, we are working out our reality even more through the ethers.  We are becoming more multi-dimensional and learning about the Law of precipitous thought. Continue to look for signs from Spirit to guide you - via whatever you believe like card decks, nature, angel numbers, random happenings. Draw your line in the sand with others, keep your boundaries, but be compassionate.  Listen. Answer thoughtfully. If you operate with higher morality and strong code of ethics you will have much more chance now of abundance and prosperity from September onward.  If you don’t act from this place you will see greater obstacles impeding you.

Symptoms will include:  throat issues, gummy/red/rashy eyes and eyelids, skin rashes, vivid dreaming, tight shoulders and shoulder blades, tingling in the second chakra, nervous system tension, heart expansion/palpitations/heartache, achiness, fatigue, fuzzy brain, confusion, no sense of past, full human range of emotions (feel them, acknowledge and use them to gain a sense of what you need), expanded sensory system, more psychic information and awareness.  We are dropping out of conformity, into the Cosmic Mind and becoming weavers of our own destiny!

Archetypes for July:  The Enchantress/Enchanter, The Sovereign, The Magical Child

Cosmic Dates in July:

Since the Solstice in June:  Mars started its retrograde cycle, joining a slew of other planets including Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto and Neptune, with Mercury set to follow in July. - it means an even greater heightening of Mercury Retrograde - cleaning out even more of what does not serve us inside and outside.  To create more peace and balance in our lives. So be open, focused, be very careful with your thoughts and what you want to manifest in your life. Listen with your heart and not your head.  What do you really need in that moment?

Mercury Retrograde:  Pre-shadow July 7th, Full retrograde July 24/25, Post shadow July 27-Aug 17, Mercury goes direct August 18/19

July 12 - New Moon in Cancer.  - A gentle opening in the 3rd chakra is occuring for you.  Stand tall, be all of who and what you are meant to be! Practice self-kindness, self-love and give yourself permission to shine a gentle and loving strength.  This is true power and more of the TRUE YOU.

July 12 - Partial Solar Eclipse. This partial eclipse will only be visible in extreme southern Australia and Antarctica.

July 27 - Full Moon in Aquarius. Full Buck Moon. Also known as the Full Thunder Moon and the Full Hay Moon. Purifying of what no longer serves is amplifying in you.  Any skeletons in the closet that need to come out are coming up.  New inner bridges are being built that will carry you over difficulty.  So trust and surrender that all is working out for your highest good.  

July 27 - Total Lunar Eclipse. The Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of Europe, Africa, western and central Asia, the Indian Ocean, and Western Australia. Moon Mother energy comes crashing in and we are reborn!

July 27 - Mars at Opposition. The red planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun - this is significant as the Divine Feminine energies released through the Total Lunar Eclipse will clash with the energy of masculine Mars - so you will need to watch being drawn into power struggles.  

July 28, 29 - Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower. The Delta Aquarids is an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from July 12 to August 23. It peaks this year on the night of July 28 and morning of July 29. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky.  Meteor showers allow further illumination of that which does not serve us, and where we need to make changes.
