The Eclipses Are Coming

 

For the many decades that I worked as a professional astrologer, I knew eclipses to be potent portal openings for change and fulfillment. They seem to take us higher. Lunar and Solar eclipses occur at least twice a year and their effects last six months, until the next set of eclipses occur.

In a Lunar Eclipse, Earth passes between Sun and Moon, and Earth’s shadow blocks Moon Light. In a Solar Eclipse, the Moon travels between the Earth and Sun, and the Moon’s shadow blocks the Sun’s Light.

Taking a fresh look at the meaning of eclipses, a recent meditation revealed eclipses as a fusion of Sun, Moon and Earth. In both a Solar and a Lunar eclipse, there is a trinity alignment of exquisitely timed perfection. This exquisite alignment is like an impregnation of Sun/Moon/Earth breathing together.

That this happens at least four times a year and with predictive regularity, and has been happening for thousands of years, is astounding to rational mind. This ritual patterning speaks of great portals of becoming for human beings.

I encourage you to take a  journey with your Self, your Soul, the Sun, Earth and Moon and ask in your own words, what is the meaning of eclipses, for you.  

This week’s Lunar Eclipse occurs on Friday, February 10, at 7:34 PM Eastern time on the axis of Leo Moon and Aquarius Sun. The Solar Eclipse occurs on Sunday, February 26 at 9:59 AM, with a Pisces Sun, Pisces Moon.

The celestial region where these eclipses occur speaks of the union of a stellar human taking center stage in her life, and, from there, finding expressive harmony as a humanitarian being. From this fusion of experience comes the awakening of the direct, visceral Knowing of Oneness.

Something popped up in the collective experience recently and it speaks to a belly-laugh interpretation of the celestial story of the February 2017 eclipses: individuals, in this case, countries, take center stage while coming together as a cohesive, collective whole. Creatives, writers, performers, producers, of late-night talk shows of countries from around the world, have joined together in creating and sharing parodies of their respective countries’ response to the recent United States inauguration speech of “America First.” 

From a Fifth-Dimension perspective, we have long ago crossed the Field into Global Consciousness, so one country being first is of a by-gone era; this positioning is no longer sustainable. We are on this Earth, together, as One. The global late night talk show parodies can be seen on this page.  Over the next six months, as the energies of the February eclipses radiate out, and more countries of our Earth Family activate their flag and present their own parody, it will be interesting to see a world united in resistance, through the strength expression of soft humour.

Resistance united as Global People Coming Together, is one expression of the 2017 Eclipse series.  There will be other collective and personal expressions unfolding within this 2017 eclipse series, as well. Make wishes, listen closely to the Heart, ride the wave of finding your center stage and claiming it, then sharing yourself in the Collective Field. This sharing can be as big or as quiet as your Soul directs, specifically for you. It is of value though, to listen, and ask for assist of your Soul if you feel called to go outside your comfort zone. From the place of claiming your stage, then expressing yourself, comes the direct, visceral, the know it in your blood and bones experience that We are One.

This is one facet of what is on offer in the February 2017 eclipse season. Please share your experiences in the comments section, or email me in the months ahead as eclipse energies of this sacred trinity, Sun/Moon/Earth play out their dance of fusion, opening us to higher frequencies of Love and Oneness.

The Richness of Now

As I write this post, it is the evening of the Full Moon Eclipse, June 4. 2012, and we are a day from the Venus/Sun conjunction.  This is  a turning point time and represents an incredibly potent time for self-healing and self-being.

Eclipses are a kind of portal, a travel path of Sun and Moon synchronicity.  The Sun and Moon are the major lights in our lives and when they eclipse one another, it represents a seeding point.  Eclipses represent a time to dream big and wish on those light stars.  Notice over the over the next six months what manifests through your dream field, your imagination and your wishing well.

This Venus transit represents the beginning of a new 100 or so year cycle of hers.  There was a part one of this event in June, 2004 and June 5, 2012 represents part 2. The Mayan Calendar is based on Venus and her cycles so this June 5, 2012 event is part of the weaving of  the major Mayan Calendar event later this year, December 21, 2012. The word “potent” does not even come close to the power and potential of this time.

What is significant about these events is that the Lunar Eclipse and the Venus conjunction occur very near the same spot in the sky.  This is a thrilling time, a grounding rod for all things Venus: creative mystery, values, Beauty.  It is heart medicine of the highest caliber.

Ways to optimize this time include, first, realize that your field is expanding.  There is more room to be you, to be creative, to be artistic and expressive, whatever that means for the individual you.   Benefit comes, as well, from heeding dreams, moving the body in expressive gestures like walking or dancing, and speaking, seeing and reaching for what it is you want.  This time is about signing the canvas of your life with Beauty, Creativity and Heart. There is no right or wrong and no small or large. Now represents a time to take a first, or ongoing, step in releasing the BEauty within You.

If you are reading this post in real time and feel that you are tired and maybe out of sorts, recognize that there is major change in our Universe with these events and it takes our bodies and consciousness time to adjust.  I do hope that one makes time for this adjustment with resting when tired and processing emotions through art and heart connections with others. Good nutrition and positive thoughts, processing out those thoughts that bind you, is also helpful.  If you are reading this post weeks or months after the fact, rest assured that you can actively participate in the shift as the Venus transit is a long-term one and if you are not consciously working with the June 2012 eclipses, there are other eclipses on their way, as they occur every six months.

Working with the natural cycles as they occur in our ever-moving celestial sphere helps us align with and attune our intuitive inner knowing as we take one step after another on our beautiful planet Earth.  Step with life as it gets more fun, creative, connective, colourful, and rewarding.  Venus is about rewards, too, the reward of us within vibrant, interconnected life.

Experts who know the rhythms of the Mayan Calendar tell us that the meme is changing from “Time is Money” to “Time  is Art.” This Venus transit, along with the eclipses, open the door to us living Time is Art.  What that means is that artistic expression paves the way for fulfillment, we no longer live by the clock.  Rational minds cannot understand this, so please, do not stress yourself by trying to understand something beyond the mind’s grasp. We are multidimensional beings and we live and function beyond just the mind.  The richness of now is a time to let those other areas of our multidimensional experience, soul, heart, spirit and physical body, reach for the creative expression longing to be released from within. It is helpful not to put any judgements on the type of art you are called from within to do.  Now’s the time.
