This is an Annular Eclipse, which means that the Moon is positioned further away from the Earth than at a Total Eclipse, so it does not completely obscure the Sun, but leaves a ring (annulus) of sunlight visible around the Moon’s dark disk. According to NASA’s Fred Espenak, “annular eclipses have a special charm all their own. During an annular eclipse, sunbeams turn into little rings of light. The best place to see this is on the sun-dappled ground beneath a leafy tree. Hundreds of circular shadows can be found there.
Life will not be the same on Earth as many of you have long sensed and are increasingly noticing. There will no longer be many of the experiences that you have had in the past of conflict and disorder, as increasingly the higher vibration of the planet will make these energies incompatible with this point of focus vibrationally.
The incredible 'Ring of Fire' solar eclipse is coming in less than 4-weeks. It's the first annular eclipse visible in America in almost 18 years, and there will not be another for over a decade. It has incredible significance. It is a portal of tremendous energy, and will spawn magnificent energy feeds. It is precisely why the final phase of the heralded ' Cosmic Trigger' is occurring on this Eclipse of 2012.
On May 20, 2012, a rare solar eclipse alignment will happen between the Earth, the Sun and Alcyone in the Pleiades Constellation. According to myth, the hunter Orion was in love with the SEVEN SISTERS and pursued them until the gods took them to safety, transforming them first into doves, and then into stars. Maia, the eldest of the seven Pleiades, gave birth to Hermes (Thoth).
The eclipse on the 20th is in the early degrees of Gemini. For those who have their natal astrological chart, see which house that is in, for that is the area that will most experience great change. Doing Ceremony and making energetic intention is a great way to use this Light. (I say energetic intention, because without energy, intention is nothing more than a few words).
May is a perfect and important month for regenerating our life force and the animas vigoras, an ancient term for the fire of inspiration, which when invoked, ignites our passion to thrive. Look around. Some of us have been in hibernation mode while others hover near survival. This is not what we came here to be and do!
May 2012 looks to be a very powerful month with the 5:5:5 Stargate, Full Moon, New Moon and Solar Eclipse offering us several opportunities for intense transformation and change. These opportunities are paving the way for the very significant alignments and gateways coming in June 2012.
Are you paying attention to the universal sleight-of-hand that is about to happen this coming weekend? If you're under pressure and thinking that it has all been self-generated then I have some good news for you. The first of two Super Full Moons will occur on May 5th (in Scorpio) and the second a month later on June 4th (in Sagittarius). And just for good measure the cosmos is tossing in a solar eclipse in Gemini on May 20th with a lunar eclipse occurring on the full moon (June 4th) also in Gemini.
Occurring on December 10 in the United States and the early hours of the morning on December 11 in Australia, December's full Moon is a total lunar eclipse. Being a south node eclipse, this is an event that will have many examining, and learning from, the past. The Sabian Symbol is Gemini 19: In A Museum, A Large Archaic Volume Reveals A Traditional Wisdom.
Thursday's New Moon with a partial Solar Eclipse ushers us into a new landscape with new ways of experiencing and where sensing and knowing expanded information is possible. This is a passage-way. Eclipses always come in pairs and this last Eclipse cycle of 2011, opens a path to 2012 that is initiatory; you can be changed in very practical ways that filter down into your experience and give you new footing by the December Solstice Celebration and to enter 2012, doing/being what you are, what you want and what you love.
Welcome to the Solar Eclipse in Cancer today, the third of a super powerful, mega-shifting eclipse series! Right about now you are likely feeling very clear around where you are still under-estimating, under-valuing and under-caring for yourself. If you aren’t sure that you’re very clear at all, take a look around at the kinds of things that have been going on in your life these past few weeks, including this week. The energies are being quite ruthless in getting the message across.
Was last week hard for you? Were at the point where you just couldn't take it any more. You're not alone, we all felt that way. This week closes out the June eclipse cycle, finally. It's not an invitation to be glad it's over and go back to our old habits, though. It's time to integrate the learning and follow a different path. Read on...
There is a lot of free-floating anxiety in the collective field right now. So if you have been feeling emotional, especially anxious (afraid) and “not good enough” (shame), there’s a reason. This intense period is forcing us to dig into our Emotional Basements, where the bodies (old hurts and secrets) are buried. It is easy to get caught up in the emotional intensity, to fall into anger, shame and fear and to or to engage once again in the drama.
The new Moon on July 1st is a partial solar eclipse, observable only from parts of Antarctica. Although it is only a partial eclipse, it is still a powerful one as it is square Saturn and opposite Pluto, which gives it quite a bit of punch.
These new passages and pathways orient you to inner avenues of knowing and being, creating and sensing divine truth that were previously unavailable on the Earth to most in human focus. It is through these new pathways that you will begin to live in much more full multidimensionality and yet with a singular focus across time and space: the emergence of the true identity within infinite time.
