We are all connected to the cosmos, we are the Universe which expresses itself as human, which means that when there are changes or shifts in the sky, we feel it deeply too. We can feel the effects of the cosmos not only emotionally and spiritually but also physically.
Think of it this way, we know the Moon has the ability to affect the tides of the ocean and since we are also made up of almost 80% water, imagine what effect the Moon has on us?
Likewise, different planets in the sky are capable of activating us on the physical level, bringing either low or high energy, outward or inward energy.
The low energies:
The cosmos radiates low energy when we have many retrograde planets, or when there is a transit or a major change that forces us to go back and look at things from the past in order to move forward.
This low frequency of energy can create blockages, making us feel blocked, stagnant, lethargic and inactive. Digestive issues can arise or we may find that we lose the motivation to focus on the things we are working on.
Symptoms such as bloating, lethargy, irritability, stuffy nose, constipation, and muscle pain, especially in the back, may also be apparent. There may be a desire to sleep more and retreat inward, this is especially true if the energy is also directed inward.
The high energies:
The cosmos gives off high energy when we start a new cycle, when a planet moves to a new sign, when we have a solar or lunar eclipse, and when we have a New or Full Moon.
These are all times when we receive a concentrated dose of energy from the planets above. Our intuition and psychic abilities can also be increased during periods of high energy, which can cause activations of the third eye and headaches.
This high-frequency energy can cause a feeling of liberation and in doing so it can amplify suppressed aches, pains, and illnesses. It can also amplify good feelings, making us feel energized and inspired.
High energy can also make us more sensitive, which can leave us prone to getting coughs, colds, and other viruses. High energy frequencies can also cause blood pressure problems, loss of balance or dizziness, skin problems, and acne breakouts. There may also be a tendency to insomnia, worry and a general feeling of restlessness.
The inward energies:
The cosmos asks us to go inside each time we complete an old cycle or prepare to move on to the next chapter in our lives. Inward energy can also occur during retrograde periods, the fall equinox and the winter solstice.
Inner energy often comes just before and just after a change or a major change, because this is the time we need to adjust and reflect.
Inward energy can effectively help eliminate physical symptoms and can activate the body’s healing and liberation process. Because energy is being drawn in, physical symptoms are often felt internally.
The outward energies:
The cosmos asks us to radiate our energy outwards after having started a new cycle or a new energy change has come our way. Outward energy is also felt during the spring equinox and the summer solstice.
This external energy can help inspire and energize us, and it can also stimulate the body’s healing process. Because the energy is drawn outward, all of the symptoms are often seen on an external level.
Inward and outward energies work with high and low energy frequencies and can change the way we feel and receive all of this energy.
It is also important to note that physical signs and symptoms are often felt when there are blockages or underlying problems that need to be resolved.
If you start to notice a pattern in the cosmos and in your health, it can also provide clues to your healing journey. If, for example, you get a headache around a major planetary change or the full moon, it may be a sign that your intuition is blocked and in need of release.
Likewise, if you feel tired and lethargic during a period of low energy, it may be due to the fact that you have to take the time to take care of yourself and retreat inward a little.
Even though events like an eclipse affect everyone, there is also your own personal astrology to consider, and you may feel different compared to someone else. The best way to find your way around is to think about your symptoms and look at them from an energy perspective.
For example, if you have a sore/dry throat, you may be wondering what you are holding in, what energy do you need to let out externally? How can you express yourself outwards?
Physical symptoms are always a sign of imbalance, but imbalances happen to all of us, in fact, there is really no escape. All you can do is nourish and protect your body as best you can and learn to manage your energy during cosmic changes through rituals, meditation, exercise and so on.
