Saturday is a Super Full Moon Eclipse in Libra. It’s that time again! New moment , new choice!
Eclipses are about endings and new beginnings; a rebirth, a reboot, a new start. What will be eclipsed (overshadowed, blocked, ended) in our lives is in fact what needs to go; this is a release mechanism so we can make our way into new territory. Its about learning how to balance your own needs (Sun in Aries) with your need to connect to others (Moon in Libra). If thats difficult, the eclipse will help remove whatever is standing in the way.
Libra is all about relationships, so an eclipse here brings a welcome change in how we are relating to others. If you feel stuck in a rut, you are about to get rocket boosted clear out of it! If you are carrying an emotional load that's weighing you down, you can expect some of your personal baggage will be jettisoned at the speed of sound.
Some relationships could end under/around this eclipse, and most will be faced with the need to change in some way. Forgiveness and compassion were a key element of the last eclipse in Pisces, and we can use those qualities to move on from old hurts recriminations etc.
Of course we can work with this energy or against it. We can hold on to those grudges and keep perpetuating the same ol' same ol'. We do have a choice.
That total solar eclipse in visionary Pisces activated the need to move beyond our petty ego stuff and open/surrender to a higher vision. We are being called to step into our true self and let go of outdated outworn layers of adaptation that have nothing to do with who we really are. Whether you are playing the parent or the child, the victim or the abuser, the lover or the loser, know that these are just roles and not who you really are.
So much is working to bring us into alignment with our true humanity, which is rooted in the divine(whatever that means to you) Its a higher calling and a higher nature that can allow us to move in this world with integrity and grace and a natural authority rather than an imposed one.
I am sure you have been feeling it. The last two weeks as we were bridging the two eclipses ... we also had a big blast of solar flare activity. Has anyone else felt uber sensitized, pressurized and intense? Or have you felt caught between a rock and a hard place, wanting, needing to move forward, impelled to move forward, yet still hesitating?
Now's your moment to finally let go.
Time seems to be both accelerated and pressurized. Things are developing at an alarming rate. Choices are in our face.
Both Sun and Uranus in proximity the South Node of the Moon means we really must release the past to be able to face the future with new energy. Pluto will help us break us out of those stuck patterns. All this can feel fated or out of our control, yet we really do have a choice. We can stay exactly where we are, doing exactly what we have been doing for oh so long, and get exactly the same results. Hmmmm.
New moment New choice!
I know you have been trying. There have been so many stops and starts and frustrations we almost gave up on our plans. In retrospect we will see that those obstaccles have allowed us to doublecheck our decisions and reassess our motives so we could be clear about the way forward. Nonetheless, this whole process can be highly destabilizing and trigger feelings of insecurity, making us unsure or hesitant.
The eclipse on Saturday may be just the release valve you need.
Also, luckily this crazy ride has some ballast. With Venus and Mars in slow and steady Taurus, we are provided with the nurturing quality of mother earth to help us keep our feet on the ground. This will increase our tendency to try and eat our way out of our stress... try keep it balanced. (Libra is all about balance) Creating ritual around food is another way to honour the earth and ground ourselves in her bounty.
A long walk in the woods last weekend helped me land back into my body after the last few weeks of mayhem. And then of course I came down with a cold, the natural response after pushing the body too much. Achoo! and actually, being ill can be another way of grounding into the body, as it forces us to take time off and spend quality time with us. Better to slow down before that happens.
Sun who gave to us this food
Earth who made it ripe and good
Dear Earth, dear Sun, by you we live
Our loving thanks to you we give.
Overall, this combination of grounding earth and inspiring fire, fanned by airy air... and combined with the releasing potential of the eclipse... will provide exactly what we need to move forward in new and exciting ways .
This Full Moon Eclipse in Libra is a call to get it together with our community our tribe, our family, our 'other.' And that means getting it together with yourself!! Quit wasting time with old issues. Let go of the past, or deal with it. Forgive, forget, move on. Whatever it takes.
Love the ones your with!!!
