Grant yourself permission to be comfortable. On May 26th, we experienced a Lunar Eclipse in the Fire sign Sagittarius and as magical as it sounds, it was powerful. Eclipses act as fated moments in our lives where we must relinquish control and trust what the universe has in store for us. For some, that’s easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy, for others it’s not easy to take the backseat and let a power higher than themselves take the wheel. For many of us, regardless of the level of difficulty in processing the eclipse, the fatigue felt after is worth noting. Luckily, the Universe is not a cruel observer of our Earthly experience, cue Venus in the sign Cancer.
