New Moon Solar Eclipse: 18 Leo 41

street performers

Two from a beautiful crew: come enjoy street dancers, performing on Friday evenings in Old Town Paphos, from the heart for all.

The sun (ruler of the new moon) and the moon (the Eclipser) will be receiving guests shortly in the royal summer play house of Leo. In attendance are Mercury (alternately preoccupied, shifty, wired-out and boisterous), Pallas Athene (the aloof strategist in chainmail tunic, occasionally clanking and chiming amongst her metal toys) and Hekate, the way-pointer currently in telepathic 3-way comms with Vesta (‘sacred hearth’ matters) and  Eris (strife and discord).

Along with the Sun, these three have been focused on their passion work for some time now. Over the previous weeks, as they have worked within allotted spaces and passed along corridors vibrating with life-force on the way to their place for New Moon rituals, each have encountered and paid their respects to the glowing orb-in-residence that symbolizes the Holistic Pursuits: the North Node point, currently at 5.5’ and just 12 god-sized paces from the top table.

More on that point here: When the Rubber Hits the Road and and The Traveler’s Essential Tool.

Casting a pleasant shade, the moon glides in. A bell rings and the pressure in the central fountain increases notably and holds; the surrounding pool level begins to rise. Bowls are set before all…and all are welcome!

We Note that elsewhere Venus squares Saturn. However, she also sextiles that North Node point. Venus is in Libra – her home territory and Saturn’s zone of exaltation. She is wired to soften the Boss’s message. Still, this kink in the line indicates that reality, with all its gore and glory, must be the foundation of lasting relationships and value-exchanges. No veneer or curtain will do just now and that’s for our own good. Practice firmness as kindly as you can without undermining your Self. The sextile tells us that when we are effectively working with others, we’ll have the capacity to co-create beyond our current limitations and see/hear/feel the proof. Be mindful, be observant.

That north node point is squaring a stationing Uranus in Taurus and for some, this is going to make mindfulness a lot harder to maintain. If this sounds like you, don’t fret – no, not by any means. ‘Failure is the elimination of the non-essential.’ – J.K. Rowling. So, let your Genius Muse out – and on the positive side, this contact will last a while...you’ve got time to practiceWhen Uranus is involved, tuck and ride the wave.

New moons are a time for Rest and Restoration, to re calibrate the mind/body balance. But life doesn’t always seem to cooperate! These are the times to practice centering while driving, while walking, while riding the bus. And again, center in the shower, the pool or under the garden hose. Center as you fall asleep and while you wait for the kettle.

Over the next several days, peruse your inner seed bank and select according to your Leo house placement. Consciously begin again to nurture your Joy. Make it a ritual.

The Saros Series number is 2 New North, an eclipse family that “changes a person’s direction through the sudden collapse of an existing structure.” The structural breakdown could be anything from a belief system to something in our external life that unexpectedly destroys our daily routines. This may initially bring about confusion but the positive message of 2 New North is that in the long run the changes will prove deeply beneficial.  – many thanks to Sher Astrology’s Kimberly Maxwell

We Need to Talk About Robots and Leaflin’s Exquisite Body

Collectively, we are navigating (or being navigated..) through some fairly choppy energy weather over the next few weeks. At the moment, we are in between two eclipses and to further encourage growth, we have Mars (life force) conjoining our symbolic ‘bathtub drain.’

Otherwise known as a channel of release for that which has sustained/taught us well but is no longer worth it’s weight on our trek, in the south node‘s union with Mars the headlines announce a perfectly timed offer. Freely flowing drive and motivation is on tap for All of Us when it comes to letting go of excess junk.

Clues as to what to get rid of will include the flashy looking or otherwise impressive ideas/tech/groups and persons that have proven themselves to be empty within, at least when it comes to your authentic needs. And on the topics of authenticity and needs, the equally obvious question is, Are you willing to give that a go on a personal level? After all, we are just beginning a gradual shift in schooling from Performance/Audience to Sustenance/Security themes.

How might habits, agenda, lifestyle, inner mind wiring have slowly cut off nutrient dense flow to your vision when you weren’t looking. One can’t keep track of everything all the time and so this is quite a positive opportunity to take stock.   objectively speaking   And yet that is exactly the point of the space weather: initiate application of life force and discover it’s easier to clear your way than you believe it will be. Wanna call that for a bluff? Step right up.

As we move towards the July 27th lunar eclipse at 4 Aqua 45, I hope you find the following links give flashy or otherwise impressive-in-a-fulfilling-kind-of-way food for thought. 🙂

I feel myself in danger of slipping through the cracks of this society, and often wonder if perhaps it is by slipping through the cracks that we might actually find the truth … the world we’ve been waiting to inherit all this time, a world that is whole and in which we are fully alive, unashamed and liberated from the “artificial information field” that clogs the doors of our perceptions and prevents us from trusting our senses. Indeed, what has been touted as “grave danger” may be the beginnings of waking up…    – Leaflin Lore Winecoff  (link for more from her exquisite mind and body)

 

All I can offer is what has happened before historically. My personal opinion would be just a guess and that is not what clients want to hear. So the sooner the better and the longer this is stalled the worse it gets.  Martin Armstrong  (link)

 

Fresh Perspective: I found this take on experiencing American life after being away for a couple of years fascinating and enlightening… recommended. (youtube link)

 

Indeed, it is precisely in a period of great spiritual and societal hunger like our own that we most need to open minds, hearts, and memories to those times when women and men actually dreamed of new possibilities for our nation, for our world, and for their own lives. It is now that we may be able to convey the stunning idea that dreams, imagination, vision, and hope are actually powerful mechanisms in the creation of new realities — especially when the dreams go beyond speeches and songs to become embodied; to take on flesh, in real, hard places. – Vincent Harding  (link)

And, finally,

This is a surreal cyborg affair…What does a good Anthropocene look like, does the road to that place run through an army of machines or do machines stand athwart the path, and what is the role of political ecology in charting the way there? … Clearly, we need to talk about robots.’ Read on for an excellent essay by Paul Robbins via this link.

 

Readers, your comments on these matters are, as always, greatly appreciated.

New Moon Solar Eclipse: 20′ Cancer

pluto_secrets revealed NASA july2014

Integral Yin Rising
At this Cancer new moon, the sun (yang, animus) is partially eclipsed by the moon (yin, anima), marking the first instalment of auspicious happenings and events across our Systems/Lineage lines and directly impacting the value We assign to them. Over the next year and a half, our inner security sensors and drives have access to an upgraded fuel blend. Core cultural shifts are afoot and premeditated measures are advised: this could get messy but the innate potential is too overwhelming for us to ignore.
And that’s indicated by an exact opposition to Pluto (element: Fixed Water), a striking feature of this new moon solar eclipse. Generally speaking, Pluto is the generational composter, however this is up close and personal for those with degree markers in range.

The script calls for  themes that speak of slow and steady, concentrated yet natural-feeling courses of action. Perhaps a story begins with the main character being anesthetized and a precise surgical incision is made…or episode 1, scene 1 involves an incident or confrontation occurring that emphatically puts the protagonist on notice – but is there any impact if pride/hubris and/or victim mentality still distort their vision?
Robin Adams points out that, ‘’The culmination occurs on 10-January-2020 with the Lunar Eclipse @ 20 Cancer…Myths and Legends are dying. Breathless in scope and vast in response – please remove subconscious shackles! Biology is connected to our perceptions, beliefs, and experiences.’’ As we step further into this Now, this space-time of destined development, how might you lay this tugging template across your own experiential map? How might some sectors of your life story, over the next year and a half, brim up, over and through in nutrient dense preparation for (insert heartfelt wish here)?

We’re all in this together. We have been practicing the wisdom of antifragility, the strength in flexibility and the courage that grows from embracing our best authentic Self. These are all parts of the equation that organically brings us within range of the Systems/Lineage axis. Let’s begin by feeling how power-full it is to confess ignorance where applicable and by promising to acknowledge fears as they arise when we explore hierarchies/pyramid schemes that extend above and below the vision field, in the spotlight and behind the scenes. I think that makes for a brilliant start.
