Shamanic Weather August 5 to 8, 2022 – Emotional Swings – Empath Alert

We continue to squirm through the emotional swings from the North Node Alignment with Rebel Genius Uranus just after the Heart Healing Leo New Moon a week ago. Other aspects: Warrior God Mars adding agitation as he joined the alignment, plus the amplification by Empowerment King Jupiter stationing retrograde (stopping, then reversing course).

In shamanism, we call this the take-apart, the ritualistic dismemberment of our old constructs to make way for the new. We resist such drastic change, yet it is essential.


The destruction before renewal experience is especially timely as we are still shuddering through the US Pluto Return. In fact, my student got to experience shamanic dismemberment multiple times in his journey today! I’ll bet he’s tired tonight.

Inner You Moon takes us through some emotional swings when it orbits “out of bounds” starting August 7. Most of us who are tapped into the Shamanic Weather seem to ride just ahead of the wave, so you may be feeling it right now.


Think of the Earth as the hub of a wheel, and the Inner You Moon orbits along a track that extends from the equator, like the rim of a tire. That tire is oval, though, and natural wobbles (inclinations and declinations) in that path shift it past the central track to rise way above or below the equator.


Just imagine your tire is out of balance and your car shakes when you are on the freeway.


Yes! So, while we are already in a constant “wow, did that really just happen?” mode, an Out of Bounds Moon turns up the intensity of the stressful emotional swings. 


Overloaded nervous systems and repetitive, panicked thinking patterns shift when we become aware of them (awaken) and take appropriate action (interrupt the pattern).

So, let’s say I yell at my cat for pawing through loose papers on my desk. Now, it’s not my nature to growl at him. He is endlessly adorable. So I know I’m out of bounds with myself – I awaken.

To interrupt the pattern, I may say “oops!” and pick him up. I’ll apologize to him, and myself, and ask myself what the hell I’m so wound up about.

Did I work too long and need a break? Am I breathing too shallowly? We do that in front of monitors and screens, did you know that? I take some time to get back to center, or track deeper into what’s going on.

This is a small example…but it’s a good start.


I’ll say it again: kindness, compassion, and breath help us be with the emotional swings and move through them. Feelings have a message. And now, we choose to listen.

Make this a weekend to Roar about!
