New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo…

You don’t become a mistake just because you have made one!”

– Author Unknown

How very much a Virgo Shadow illusion this quote is. How many of us, over a lifetime, actually believe this to be true, deep deep down? Be honest with yourself here….just a tiny bit perhaps?

Part of Virgo’s Shadow is trying to BE perfect, along with the judgements and criticisms of Ego-Self and Others along the way. How many of us continue along this vein, in any area of our lives? Especially in the area where Virgo resides within your horoscope chart? Interesting….

Solar Eclipse - Partial

Solar Eclipse – Partial

In a few hours from now, we will experience a Partial Solar Eclipse – the darkest part of its shadow, cast by the Moon coming in between the Sun and Earth, will not seen by us here in the Americas – mostly southern Africa, Indian Ocean and Antarctica areas of the world. A partial eclipse means the Moon in between the Sun and Earth aren’t all aligned perfectly (!!) in a straight line, hence the Moon will only partially cover the Sun’s disc.

A solar eclipse only occurs during a New Moon, and only when the plane of the Moon’s orbital path around Earth is inclined at a 5 degree angle to the Earth’s orbital plane (called the ecliptic) around the Sun.

The points where the two orbital planes meet are known as the Lunar Nodes (North Node and South Node). Therefore a solar eclipse occurs only when a New Moon takes place near a Lunar Node!

Interestingly, the path of the current Lunar Nodes are sitting at 00 degrees of Libra (North Node) at 00 degrees of Aries (South Node always sits opposite of the North Node, in its opposite sign) with this New Moon (Moon and Sun together) sitting at 20 degrees of Virgo – just 10 degrees away from one another, hence the Solar Eclipse. The closer the Moon/Sun of the New Moon sits to the North/South Nodes, the more exact (total) the solar eclipse will be! I love how this Virgo New Moon is only a Partial Solar Eclipse – not a perfectly aligned Sun/Moon/Earth! Is this driving any Virgoans wild right now? AND especially because we cannot ‘see’ the actual eclipse?!

Eclipse energy is known, Astrologically, as signifying events that can be far-reaching. Some say it is just the day of the eclipse; others extend it by 3-6 months prior to/after the eclipse occurs; others think this energy can last up to 3.5 years afterward. I think of it this way: the few months leading up to an eclipse is like the New Moon cycle, waxing its energy to peak at Full Moon (the eclipse event) and then slowly letting go over time until the next New Moon – or in this case, the next set of eclipses. Usually there is a 6-month wait between eclipse seasons (usually in the  Spring and Fall).

Also, the sign in which the Solar Eclipse occurred in the Spring (on March 20th this year in Pisces) “completes” intensely energy-wise as it closes with it’s opposite sign’s Solar Eclipse 6 months later – for us, this year, just after midnight in Virgo. The Lunar Eclipse in Libra on April 4th will complete with the upcoming Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse September 27th in Aries (opposite signs). This is why the early Spring and Fall months are so intense! Not just about the growing season beginning/ending here on Earth – ’tis the Inner Growing season deep with each of us (As Within, So Without) AND the letting GO of what no longer “grows corn” for our Soul.

Looking at this Pisces/Virgo combination of eclipses in 2015, we ‘see’ how illusions, delusions, addictions, and escapism that we once held near and dear to our hearts 6 months ago no longer do so now! Virgo rules the service we DO daily (aka work) AND the health of our physical body. Do you ‘see’ the progress you have made these 6 months in the Actions (Solar) taken to let go of the Old Piscean Shadow issues that have led to where we sit now, on the cusp of this New Moon/Solar eclipse in Virgo – initiating change and taking NEW ACTION re: how we are of service AND Being of service for the health of our respective physical bodies? You will also ‘see’ what new action is required NOW that you weren’t quite able to handle before NOW. Do you see this perfection of how we don’t need to do it all perfectly now this instant? Life is a process…and so are we.

I must chat about the Moon’s Nodes sitting at 00 degrees of Libra/Aries for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse. As cardinal signs (Air and Fire) these two signal the beginning of the Fall (Libra) and Spring (Aries) seasons – huge energy of INITIATING change and new direction here on Earth re: our growing/dying seasons. AND, the New Moon signals our intention to INITIATE change and something new within our Emotional Body (Moon) and Spiritual Body (Sun). Lastly, both Nodes are sitting at 00 degrees of their respective signs – again, INITIATING a brand NEW cycle. Let’s break this down further…

The Lunar Nodes travel backwards through the Zodiacal signs (whereas the planets move forward – from 00 degrees through to 29 degrees – then into the next sign). It takes approximately 22 months for the Nodes to travel through each sign. The current Nodal journey through Libra/Aries began January 19, 2014 (beginning at 29 degrees) and will finally leave Libra/Aries as of November 13th, 2015 when they enter Virgo/Pisces (again at 29 degrees).

Look back at your own Inner Journey of self-growth to ‘see’ how you have let go of some shadow aspects of this Libra/Aries pairing of the North Node (the Dragon’s Head – the direction our collective Soul wishes to grow into because we haven’t explored this area much at all) and the South Node (the Dragon’s Tail – the direction from which we bring past talents/skills AND unresolved issues from past lives and earlier this lifetime – where our Ego-self loves to live because it is familiar).

Libra signifies the need to partner, share, BE your true self in tandem with another (be it close personal friends, clients, partnerships – personal and/or business). How well have you allowed your Soul’s need to move into the direction of BEing INTERDEPENDENT rather than co-dependent within your relationships with others? Hhhmmm….

Aries brings in the instinctual need to BE ME, all about ‘Me, Myself and I’ – independent from others (and for some, at all costs). Truly expressing your Self-Identity, unique to you. Here the Ego-self can get tangled into totally forgetting that Others exist in their world (or in the world) and “I can do it all by myself thanks!” comes into play.

The passive/aggressive parley between the two extremes is what we have been working upon and learning to heal. With Libra/North Node/Dragon’s Head – we have been moving forward into more loving, harmonious and balanced relationships – across the board, while ‘seeing’ the relationships that are NOT. These have to change or be left behind.

The Aries/South Node/Dragon’s Tail has assisted all of us to sweep away (with the Tail) all unresolved issues from our pasts – moving away from BEing an Island, I am all alone in this, and I can do it all by myself – letting go of insisting on ‘Me, Myself & I’ to create space for SHARING, CARING and BALANCE of ‘ME time’ AND ‘WE time’! ME = Aries; WE = Libra. Balance, creating an “AND” here yet again.

This New Moon/Solar Eclipse assists us with taking NEW inSPIRed Action (Solar = the fire of BEing In Spirit – or inspired – via our Inner Spirit/Soul) with how well we have perfected the process (Virgo) of looking after our true Self-Identity AND keeping true to this Self within ALL relationships we make along the way. No more sacrificing, denying, hiding the Light of our Soul Self! Like the beacon of a lighthouse, BE that beacon, shine your true inner Light, with LOVE, for all to see! BE You, yet BE in partnership, equally, with others. We have until November 12th to finish off the last pieces of this, shifting, ebbing and flowing with it all along the way

Saturn sits at 29 degrees of Scorpio for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse, therefore we are tying up any loose ends of how our Ego-self sits in FEAR of taking responsibility (Saturn) for our actions (or lack thereof) out in the world (Sagittarius – the next sign Saturn will enter). Take Soul-ful action (Solar Eclipse) to WALK through any remaining fears to BEing seen out in the world, authentically, that your Ego-self is still hanging onto. This can occur through just not showing up to begin with as you could, or eating so much that your true physical body is hidden away (hiding your true authentic self), or taking on Others’ responsibilities as an excuse for not living your own true authentic life! These are a few examples to chew on…

Jupiter continues to expand and amplify our awareness of how we wish to BE of service out in the world (and how well we are doing with our diets, exercise programs etc too!). Anyone seeing MORE eating of less healthy food/drink these past several weeks? This is a great indicator that the Ego-self is still in control, not your Soul-self. Use Saturn’s energy to help you LET GO of any remaining Ego-self FEARS to BE authentic for the rest of this Moon cycle. Scorpio is the ICE form of the water signs, so what do you need to assist with the melting of those fears you are carrying deep inside? Ask for these fears to ‘melt away’ with ease and grace, releasing resistance to the changes your Soul is beckoning you forward into. We can be “frozen with fear” and deeply so.

We continue to experience the Grand Trine (triangle) in Fire – very much a formation of Love to inSPIRE Soul-ful ACTION (fire) to create something new in our lives for the good. Here Venus in Leo (Desires from the Heart to create) + Uranus Rx in Aries (Unexpected Changes to be ‘Free to BE ME’) + Pallas in Sagittarius (incorporating mind/body healing techniques from around the world) play their parts within this Grand Trine. See where Leo, Aries and Sagittarius are in your birth charts – these are the areas of your life where you will take Soul-ful Action this month! If you are NOT inSPIRed to do so – In Spirit – then don’t make it happen! This is the Ego-self way – making it so, and now, to check another item off its To Do list…a friendly reminder…

Summing up: perfect yourself via the service you provide to Others and to your physical body AND continue to free up, let go and heal those Ego-self fears of BEing SEEN as your true authentic Soul-self AND take responsibility for your OWN actions/in-actions along the way. How you conduct yourself leading up to, during and in the aftermath of this New Moon/Solar Eclipse will impact your life for this next Moon cycle and perhaps for the next 3.5 years, energetically, physically, work-wise, and health-wise….just saying….

And if you are inSPIRed to learn more of how this New Moon/Solar Eclipse and upcoming Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will be impacting/activating your life, give me a call to set up either a Moon Cycle Report reading or other in-depth readings. See my contact information on the right side of this post. I look forward to hearing from you, and

Blessed BE!

Shadow Sides of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn…

Shadow & Light March 2015

Shadow & Light March 2015

Why am I speaking of the Shadow side of Pisces, Aries, Libra and Capricorn today? Because Saturday’s Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse brought UP and OUT (aka ‘outed’ us all) key Shadow work still to ‘see’ and heal. This was facilitated by Pluto’s movement through Capricorn.

During the latest Full Moon phase the SUN sat at 14 degrees of ARIES (interestingly, Fire + Fire elements), the MOON sat at 14 degrees of LIBRA (Water + Air elements) in opposition to each other, exactly. The other character, PLUTO, was sitting at 14 degrees of CAPRICORN (Earth element). What they all have in common is this: they each represent one of the 4 CARDINAL points or signs of Astrology – heralding the BEGINNING of a new season (hence why Cardinal signs signify CHANGE, New Initiatives, New Starts in our lives).

Aries begins Spring; Libra begins Fall; and Capricorn begins Winter. Two Equinoxes and one Solstice. Two areas that required BALANCING/EQUALITY to create an AND in our lives, in order to allow us to dig DEEPER into that long-winter’s NIGHT of how we reach Material Gain in this New World post-2012….cool!

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

T-Square to Pluto from Moon opposing Sun April 4, 2015

In order to REACH this T-Square connection (visualize the Sun in Aries in opposition to the Moon in Libra, BOTH squaring up to Pluto in Capricorn – the apex of this triangle or T-Square formation) all of us, respectively, needed to somehow LIVE in the shadow of some aspect of ourself this past weekend – and I mean really LIVE in it. Got cozy with it, allowed it to become LOUD enough to catch our attention. So whatever you found yourself doing (or not doing) Saturday during the 28-days-worth of Moon energies via the Total Lunar Eclipse, THAT was EXACTLY what you were MEANT to be DOing to keep your Ego Mind distracted from the real work going on behind the scenes….

The fire of the Sun within the Fire of Aries – the Sun rules Leo, which represents SUSTAINED Fire, and the Aries Fire is QUICK, INSTINCTUAL, not lasting very long. Aries wants to take action via leaping before thinking; Leo wishes to take long action in order to CREATE something New….and to me the Sun in our birth chart represents our SOUL self. This Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse with the Sun IN Aries brought forth that which we only ‘see’ within ourselves for a short time, yet is required to CREATE something NEW our Soul self needs now and in the future.

The air of the Moon portion of the Full Moon phase lay in Libra which brings in BALANCE and EQUALITY through Thought, Conversation, Interaction with someone significant in our life. Remember the Moon represents our Emotional Body via feelings and intuition and those hits of Insights from our Higher Self/BEings/people mirroring that which we need to see about Self.

Water vs. Earth March 2015

Water vs. Earth March 2015

Emotionally, where were you in your head? What triggers occurred for YOU this past weekend that perhaps totally freaked you out? Perhaps wanted you to ESCAPE (Pisces Shadow) BACK to where you WERE before this MOON CYCLE began March 20th @ 29 degrees of Pisces? Remember: 29th degree = LET GO OF SOMETHING this month….

Okay – so we have something INSTINCTUAL (Aries) that wants to assist our Soul (Sun) self to CREATE over the next 6 months to 3.5 years (due to the Eclipse energy). We also have the NEED to communicate (self-talk and with others) in an EQUAL face-time way (Libra) that somehow rebalances the beauty of our Emotional Body (Moon, at the Full Moon stage) – via the SHADOW of the Total Eclipse – bringing forth OUR SHADOW SELF – that which we usually reject out of hand in a blink of an eye….sound familiar?

Post-2012 we are are ALL learning to CREATE an “AND” world – no longer this or that, black or white, male or female, light or dark. ‘Tis this AND that, black AND white, male AND female, light AND dark – do you see what I am saying here? IT IS BOTH – AT THE SAME TIME.

The KEY transformation (PLUTO) is for us to SEE and EMBRACE our Shadow Self (Moon) AND our Divine Self (Sun)- see both/all sides of our selves – with Integrity, Responsibility, building a NEW solid FOUNDATION down here on EARTH (Capricorn). Once we begin to understand the ‘AND’ portion of living post-2012, we also begin to EMBRACE all of ourselves, all of the time.

The Shadow of Pisces brought our attention to WHERE the DRAMA of the Ego self is still in play within us and our lives. How does YOUR life look on the outside when it comes to drama? This is the reflection (Full Moon Illumination) of what we hold true as an Ego belief on the inside!

Knowing WHERE Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Pisces are in your birth chart shows where this heavy-duty SHADOW work resides, what we have been “outed” into between the New Moon / Full Moon (Total Solar Eclipse / Total Lunar Eclipse) phases this Moon cycle. Very cool and very timely AND very scary for the Ego self.

As an example: I have both the end of Pisces (29th degree aka New Moon placement) and most of Aries (includes the 14th degree aka Sun at Full Moon placement) within my 8th House of:

  • Shared $$$, resources, and experiences with Other Partners (be they business-related, personal, taxes owed to the government, paycheque from an employer, etc) one of the Money Houses….
  • Trust issues – emotionally, physically, psychically – in exchange of money, things, work, intimacy…and the EXCHANGE includes Giving / Receiving…
  • Sexuality – 8th House moves us past the 7th House of the “getting to know you” phase into the really GETTING TO KNOW you intimacy of all the dark secrets we hide from others….and self if we weren’t aware of it BEFORE we hooked up with a significant Other
  • Life-Death-Rebirth – all the questions we have around DEATH and dying…here is where both Scorpio AND Pluto naturally live – so how am I allowing myself to TRANSFORM and die off, via Shadow work healing, some Ego aspect of myself each Moon cycle (and especially this cycle due to all the Eclipse energies)? Or am I just paying lip service to it?
  • Ego Self Shadow fears…..related to ALL of these 8th House themes….and am I allowing them to die off or am I still holding onto them, tightly, dearly?

Then I have the opposite sign, Libra within my 2nd House of:

  • All the ways I allow myself to bring in INCOME, via all my senses, personal resources and skills and talents…is there just ONE way of working all my life or many ways? Am I utilizing ALL my talents and gifts or overlooking my best assets?
  • How all of this relates to my Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence, and VALUES – what do I value about work and working to make $$$ to pay my bills? How are MY Values mirrored by the people I work FOR/WITH? As well as the business itself – what do they DO that I value in my world, within this world?
  • What do I VALUE materially for MY life? What is the balance between earthly material needs vs. spiritual needs? What is my attachment to material things? And how do I honour the energy exchange, materially?
  • This House of $$ deals with our daily needs, how harmoniously I deal with them and allow others in to my life to gain what I NEED to live.
  • Creature comforts, benefits of services given and received. Owning, lending, borrowing. Identifying SELF and SUCCESS via THINGS vs. BEingness….am I of VALUE or am I only of value due to WHAT I HAVE or OWN or have BORROWED?

Then there is Capricorn – in my 5th House – currently on top of my natal MARS (taking Action, BEing Assertive, Instinctual Warrior energy and Pioneering NEW paths within myself):

  • The 5th House is ruled by the Sun and Leo in the natural wheel of the Zodiac. Here we want to SHINE somehow, CREATE something not seen before, via FUN & PLAY and ROMANCE. Our Inner Child comes out here to show us the way….as well as all children.
  • Pleasure and inner satisfaction, those inner yearning’s to BE SEEN and CREATE – to have MY Creations SEEN by Others…
  • Games, entertainment, gambling, sports, how we win or lose, how we DRAMATIZE our lives.
  • Popularity vs. hero worship vs. inner happiness. King or Queen of the Mountain; Drama Queen or Drama King.

So for me, in my life, I have SEEN the tapes and OLD messages of the traditional institutional world (Capricorn) that were still running in my Ego mind (beliefs) about what I could or shouldn’t create on my own (Aries) as a WOMAN towards material gain (Capricorn) because I wasn’t EQUAL (Libra) with my personal collection of talents and skills to BE materially wealthy (2nd House) through Others (8th House).

I was holding into, unconsciously, past life ideas and beliefs (Pisces), that BEing an independent woman in this day and age also means being LESS THAN with or without a significant partner/Other in my life. BEing successful meant LOSING something of myself in the mix (Death and dying – Pluto/Scorpio/8th House). Who knew?

I am currently going through a process of ENVISIONING a NEW reality and future for myself – and hit the wall about it all over the weekend – my Ego said STOP! I’m going no further – you cannot make me! I want to GO BACK, STAY PUT, do NOT pass GO….etc etc etc.

Most of us have ERIS in Aries (her orbit takes almost 600 years to move through one Astrological sign) and my Eris is at 8 degrees of Aries. Eris throws the apple of discord into the mix to see how we regain more harmony and balance in our lives, especially our gender-roles as females and males since 2006/07.

Neck Point, Nanaimo, BC 2013

Bottom line here: ALL of us are rebalancing (Libra) some aspect of ourself via Ego Beliefs that no longer work in THIS world of THIS lifetime (Pisces) that in turn have prevented us from BEing our instinctual self (Aries) that takes Action for ME, ‘AND’ WITH Others (Libra) so that yes! We can HAVE successful Material GAIN and goals and responsibility (Capricorn) in our lives, as long as we EMPOWER (Pluto) ourselves to EMBRACE the Ego Shadow values, beliefs, emotions (Moon) AND the Soul Self values, beliefs, actions (Sun)…creating a more balanced (Libra) ME (Aries) in the process. Create an AND World – WITHIN – first, so that we Manifest WITHOUT.

What have YOU been DISowning so far as YOU? What Shadow parts of Self do you reject? Toss away as nonessential aspects of You? That which we reject we project AND attract to ourselves…

As Within, So Without; As Above, So Below – ah yes… we keep coming back to this simple yet deeply resonating Hermetic saying…

8 Phases of the Moon Cycle

8 Phases of the Moon Cycle

In just over 6 hours we begin another Eclipse Season and New Moon cycle all at the same time! AND 13 hours later the Sun moves into Aries, announcing the Vernal Equinox – the beginning of Spring. Similar to what we experienced back in December for the Winter Solstice (New Moon AND Solstice on the same day) yet with a bigger energetic bang due to a Total Solar Eclipse this time.

The cardinal signs of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra all initiate CHANGE – a change of season, therefore weather and plant life – and a chance to renew something – not totally, but renew just the same. When the Sun changes signs, especially entering one of the cardinal signs, it signals a new phase of life here on Earth.

And the New Moon phase of each Moon cycle also means CHANGE – a chance, through our conscious intention, of bringing some new aspect of change into our life for that Moon cycle.

Annular Eclipse

Annular Eclipse

Eclipses occur during a New Moon (solar eclipse) or a Full Moon (lunar eclipse) but not every New or Full Moon creates an eclipse. The short version why this is: it is all about the location of the current Moon’s Nodes (North Node in Libra or South Node in Aries) at the time of a New Moon or Full Moon timing. Since Libra and Aries are cardinal signs, it makes sense that the South Node in Aries will be close to the Sun’s orbit because the Sun enters Aries shortly after the New Moon phase begins, triggering the Solar Eclipse. And we will experience a Total eclipse this time (not all eclipses are total).

The New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse occurs around 3:36a MDT March 20th causing a dark shadow to travel across the face of the Earth. In ancient times, darkness from either a Solar or Lunar Eclipse brought fear and terror to the surface of mankind. The word eclipse means to dim, to hide or conceal – somehow Light becomes invisible when it should be light. People are afraid of the dark corners of their inner self – the Ego Shadow self – the dark of night, the bogey man in the closet or under the bed.

Giza Pyramid, Cairo, Egypt 2011

Giza Pyramid, Cairo, Egypt 2011

What fears will we be processing this time? What does all of this mean for us humans? With the Moon blocking the Sun’s energies as it passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, what emotional (Moon) truths will be revealed after the darkness or blockage passes?

This New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse occurs at 29 degrees of Pisces 27′ – an ending of something emotional for all of us. Collectively, we humans are still processing and releasing our hold on the Drama Triangle – be it taking the Victim stance, being the Rescuer or wanting someone to rescue us, or Persecutor (aka bully) or feeling persecuted. Some of us run around the Drama sitting at each of these positions; others sit at one or two. The key is to GET OFF and away from the Drama!

Pisces is all about Magic, Movies and Illusion. Dreams and dreaming. Intuitive knowing and emotional sensitivity. What is your normal State of BEING? Emotions will occur and stay with us for maybe 15′ before moving on (sad or mad or happy or glad or joy or calm etc). The state of BEingness can be patience, giving, taking, risk-taking, or perpetual drama etc.

As humans we are still figuring out how to BE with our emotional body AND move away from our addiction to the drama. Drama keeps us busy emotionally and mentally, distracting us from moving forward with purpose. Look at your life, the people in your life and ‘see’ the drama playing out around you. Would you rather be IN the storm of the drama or stand in the eye of the storm instead?

The Eclipse energy, Solar = sun = vitality and action. To me the Sun represents our Soul self – so during a Solar Eclipse I ask myself what ACTION is my Soul beckoning me to take? The theme begins with Pisces – our divine and spiritual self – that wishes to BE of service for the good of all, BEYOND the Ego self (or little self). Mastering the Ego in order to all the Soul to come forward to be leader, from the heart with unconditional love, compassion and no judgement – with Self or Others.

Mt Shasta Morning Mists 2011

This is what we will be working on for the next TWO YEARS. Tomorrow’s New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Pisces is just ONE of FIVE timings of connecting either with Pisces or the opposite sign of Virgo between tomorrow and March of 2017! Seems like the Universe is sending us a message: learn to deal with your emotions, be aware of your feelings AND learn to BE with them and yet not OF them. Deal with them (don’t run away from them by escaping into your collection of addictions aka crutches that keep you distracted from the REALITY by staying within the ILLUSION).

Interestingly, we have BOTH the Moon and the Sun plus Neptune (ruler of Pisces), Mercury and Chiron all in Pisces at this time. The Moon, during its month-long cycle, shows each of us what aspect of our Ego Shadow needs to die, whilst the Sun shines a Light on what that aspect of self is, and Neptune helps us imagine and dream higher dreams of a better way of BEing, Mercury shows us how our thoughts can be deluding us (idealizing the situation rather than seeing the reality) and Chiron continues to assist all of us to HEAL the wound of separation from our Spiritual/Divine self.

Chiron glyphChiron in Pisces brings hypersensitivity to the mix, whereby we sense and are alerted to the pain and suffering of others around us. Energetically, and emotionally, set up healthy boundaries with self and others. What are you willing, and not willing, to experience with others from here on out? This New Moon begins at 29 degrees – indicating an end of a cycle – an end of HOW we do energy and emotions with self and others. In other words: let GO of the DRAMA, heal the wound of separation that prevents you from SEEing yourself (and all others) as a Divine BEing having a physical experience down here on Mother Earth, DREAM your dreams of a better world, life (inner and outer) and IMAGINE your heartfelt intention.

Objectivity will be difficult during this Solar Eclipse – this energy peaks at the time of the eclipse and for several days later, yet remains available to work with until the next eclipse that closes this one (in other words, this Solar Eclipse in Pisces will close at the Lunar Eclipse of Virgo – opposite sign to Pisces) in September). We have six months to work through this process (and it will bear fruit further along for three years thereafter).

BE NOT AFRAID and TRUST and have FAITH that all is in right and proper timing. As per usual the Moon’s phases are always bringing us new ways to ‘see’ our true inner self and in turn bring awareness and conscious action for next steps forward.

Then at 4:45p MDT March 20th the Sun enters 00 degrees of Aries 00′. The Equinox – equal hours of light and dark – a rebalancing occurs energetically. The Vernal (green) Equinox signifies the beginning of Spring in the northern hemisphere (Fall down under) and the ‘new moon’ of the Solar year.

Aries is cardinal fire – taking action, via courage and assertion (not aggression), your self-identity is being SEEN outwardly by others. What do YOU want? Are you taking action toward what YOU want? Aries also represents the Inner Warrior (so that courage I mentioned) AND being a Pioneer in some regard. I think of pioneering new inroads within myself that I may have been afraid to take before now. Hence that courage and asserting self. Where have YOU been afraid to live, deep within, that no longer feels that way now? What was I so afraid of before? Huh!

To find out where the 29th degree of Pisces and 00 degrees of Aries are in your birth chart tells you what area of your life is being affected right now. For me I have the end of Pisces and the beginning of Aries in my 8th House of intimacy, shared money and resources, the life-death-rebirth cycle. Here intimate and business partnerships prevail. It will be interesting to see how I allow more intimacy into my life, allowing others to SEE me more clearly and deeply than I have allowed them to before now.

The path of this Total Solar Eclipse begins to the south of Greenland, circles to the east of Greenland and Iceland by midday, and ends to the north of Greenland at sunset. The best viewing of this eclipse from land will be the Faroe Islands and Svalbard archipelago [EarthSky astronomical website]. To varying degrees a partial eclipse in the rest of the world occurs over Greenland, Iceland, Europe, northern Africa (Egypt), the Middle East and northwestern Asia.

I find it interesting, with all the unrest and wars going on in the east, this is where this supermoon is bringing LIGHT into a dark subject! What healing will occur there to bring less drama and more love to the heartbeats that live there? Time will tell…

Solar Eclipse - Partial

Solar Eclipse – Partial

From the chart I created for this New Moon/Solar Eclipse, we are also connecting with the LAST of the seven square timings between Uranus and Pluto since June 2012! This occurred March 16th and this was the ONLY time that both planets were DIRECT – bringing forward movement together all at once!

Many people have been downsized/let go from oil and gas companies up here in Canada (especially here in Calgary where most of the head offices are) since September 2014, and I am not surprised to hear of many more layoffs occurring this week and into the next six months.

Pluto has been travelling through Capricorn since 2007 – bringing to the surface deeply buried INTEGRITY issues, via power and control struggles, within governments, countries, corporations. Interestingly, the sign of Pisces rules the liquids of Mother Earth – oil and gas being one aspect. the 29th degree of Pisces – what are we truly letting go of this Moon cycle AND eclipse timing?

Uranus has been travelling through Aries since March 2011 – asking us to BE more independent, self-sufficient, not victims needing to be rescued. One thing I know to be true: no one ever dies from losing a job. It is a great opportunity to usher in much needed CHANGE in direction, thought, feeling and living. All in Divine timing. Right on time, and just in time.

Uranus brings Unexpected Change, seemingly out of left field – yet if you glance back you most likely were picking up on the nuances and signs along the way. The Ego likes to deny seeing them, hoping it will just go away quietly.

The South Node in Aries brings unresolved issues from the past to the fore – re: warring, fighting, bullying (self and others) which in turn activates change (Uranus) and taking action (Mars) for more EQUALITY in the world, especially for women (Eris) – all in Aries.

Planets & Glyphs

Planets & Glyphs

Venus is now in Taurus – what do we wish to create, lovingly, in a tactile way, to beautify this world rather than tear it down with war and anger? She is like the lone voice in the wilderness, asking for us to let go of old patterns of conditioning re: our global leaders and so-called authority figures. Who gave them the authority to begin with and when?

Jupiter turns Direct again April 8th, within Leo, ruling the heart, the heartbeats in the world, magnifying and expanding our previous experience beyond the norm. After this supermoon, just what will we CREATE (Leo) heartfully and directly with its energy? What will change in the world? What will change deep within?
