As I re-read a text message I’d just sent about the upcoming Lunar Eclipse (April 25/26) I had to have a little chuckle. Instead of saying ‘good time for inner healing’, the auto spell-check had changed it to ‘god time for inner healing.’ Indeed it is.
Eclipse seasons are notoriously unpredictable in their effects. Even aside from the actual eclipses, once we’re in the season all bets are off and anything could happen. Life often takes on a feeling of speeding–up in some way.
With Mercury having stationed direct at 7:59 p.m. GMT on 17th March, ending its three weeks of retrograde motion, we begin this week with a feeling of renewal and an opportunity to begin making progress again!
For those who have been following the posts over the past couple of weeks, you'll know that I've described this series of Eclipses and Alignments as like being a car wash/rinse/dry process. Well here we are at the 'getting dried' part of the cycle with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.
The eclipse speaks of many things - as lunations always do - but the crux of it, I figure is the image of reaching deeply into oneself and others in order to get to the pure, refreshing waters of who we and others are. It's also about opening up the heart, healing our wounds and finding our place.
This month we will see the continuing acceleration, with increasing intensity, of that which we have been witnessing and experiencing all year – extremes of actions, emotions, responses and revelations. The higher frequency energy flooding our planet, and our cells, is triggering and bringing to the surface everything within us that is in alignment with that energy.
November's total solar eclipse is going to be a big one and it marks a period that we will probably remember for a long time to come. The effects of eclipses are generally seen as lasting for several months, some say as long as nine months. My take on it is that the effect stretches into the future, and whatever is given birth to at the time around the eclipse holds the energy of that eclipse, so it's energy can be around for a very long time.
How did the solar activity in October affect us? On a global level, the Earth experienced potent purges and movements allowing Her to align into a sacred space that can easily support the rapidly evolving consciousness of the collective. It's not always butterflies and rainbows, as we've seen these past few weeks with the weather patterns and Earth movements, however it is all part of a Divine process that's ushering us into a higher global state of consciousness.
Hello friends. We start the month on a rather inward or quiet note with the Day of the Dead/All Saints Day celebration but this soon makes way to a vibe that is very much about expansion and LIFE. November brings us further activation and clearing issues. It also carries the Stargate/Eclipse energies which is not only things leaving or being “eclipsed out.” but new people and energies being magnetized IN. Be sure to be open and create space for them.
Does anyone else feel like they are readjusting their molecules after a wild adventure ride in the cosmic amusement park? After spending two amazing months in Mt. Shasta, I am in the San Francisco Bay area again gaining perspective while letting the dust settle. It feels like a game attempt on my part to integrate the life-altering spring that we all have been through.
This is a difficult time for many because of your determination to do ‘it’ right. You have devoted many lifetimes preparing for this transition. Now that it is here you want to be absolutely certain you are doing all you can to ensure its success. This transition is already a success beyond anything you or we envisioned.
Hello dear readers, As I’ve said earlier this week, for many the Eclipse/Venus Transit eclipsed some people and things right out of our life and we’re left holding the bag. It’s been confusing, upsetting and just plain sad, so let’s walk through this for some clarity. The Masters and wise ones advise us to “not take it personally” when people around us are going off, blowing up or even leaving. It’s pretty hard not to when someone’s got a metaphorical gun pointed at your head.
For those who may think that the energy of the eclipse has now passed, that is not entirely true. The energy will linger for 6 months or more, depending on what is given birth to in this time period. What happens now takes us forward, so please do remember that the Symbols I quote below are still effecting us and will continue to tell their story well into the future.
