Mutiny of the Soul is an essay written by Charles Eisenstein – author, speaker, and activist. In this piece, he discusses how we unconsciously rebel against certain aspects of life, when our Soul refuses to participate. Oftentimes, this can be covert. We may, for example, express disinterest at a party we didn’t want to attend, or give a poor performance at a job that doesn’t bring us joy. Overt ways of such mutiny, meanwhile, could look like complete isolation from others when we are dissatisfied. No matter the experience, a mutiny of the Soul is usually unconscious, and the manifestations can be physical (health concerns, aches and pains), mental (depression, fatigue) or psychological (manipulation, deceit).
Where in your life are you currently experiencing a mutiny of the Soul?
We are entering eclipse season this week, with a Lunar Eclipse on Monday, August 7, followed by a Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21. Both cosmic events are happening on the Aquarius-Leo axis, a pair of signs known for being fiercely independent, soldiering along a path toward self-actualization, and self-determination. The Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will force us all to be rid of narratives, ideas, and stories that no longer speak to who we are on a Soul level. The Solar Eclipse in Leo will force us to embrace a new narrative, idea, and story that is solely unique to our Soul’s truth. Whatever that might be for you, dear reader – whatever your Soul is trying to reveal to you one mutiny at a time – listen. Pay attention.
