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

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.

New Moon Solar Eclipse: 27 Aquarius 7

cypNMSE15feb18

There is a buzzy undercurrent to this new moon solar eclipse for just about any life zone it seeds in the natal wheel. In the days leading up to the conjunction, you may have been feeling something akin to a vacuum, a depression or even the eeriness of the calm before a storm. Some have felt a hint of euphoria, a tingling vibration through the mind and body…Yesterday, I heard someone say, ‘Perhaps I won’t give up just yet…?’

You’re not losing your marbles, just having your hinges rattled. Your emotional center is picking up the kind of static that comes when the Collective Zeitgeist is shifting from one frequency to another. For those with natal points in play, there’s a mega data stream en route – a hand on the radio dial turns and suddenly the speakers are BLARING. Is it a song, a proclamation, a public service announcement or a fixating whisper that feels like it could well deafen your inner child’s ears?

I can’t help but think of Elon Musk’s spectacular Falcon Heavy accomplishment as symbolic of what one might do with this ecliptic energy. In each unique life story touched by this phenomenon, the seed planted in this moment has the potential to make the tough – the impossible – look like a majestic walk in the park. On that note, let’s include the agenda of Saturn in Capricorn, too. There were countless sleepless days and nights of raw intellectual and physical toil with subsequent tearful release, an incessant dream-drive that many found baffling and a waste of time, frightening costs of cash and spirit spent behind the scenes for years that Elon and the many teams aligned under the SpaceX vision endured.

And they would do it all again, without hesitation.

The toothpaste doesn’t go back into the tube once you’ve glimpsed with Sky Sight. Time is not the enemy. Time morphs into your accomplice. Time lets you know how much space you have for each incremental step/phase/budget line item/trial run. Time grants you the authority to know when you’re ready for launch, ready to upcycle, ready to pro-actively manipulate the materials of your passion work.

Since the new moon in Capricorn, I’ve listened to many people say, ‘I am going to DO (this), BE (this), HAVE (this) NOW. And that is easy to understand in these times of instant gratification. But this mentality is self-sabotage. Nothing enduring happens in an instant – not even the comprehensive grasping of (this) in your mind’s eye.

For those who have faithfully continued showing up to The Grindstone, know that you have truly earned at least a mini-break…don’t dismiss the invitation and here’s why: this new moon moment signals the imminent arrival and docking of Spaceship Genius for those intentionally aligning their heart and mind. It signals the pro-active upcycling of the minds and materials that constitute your reality . The crew – metaphoric and of flesh and blood – brings rich supplies for the months and years to come. On behalf of those I know who are putting in the effort, I am positively giddy with expectation. Hold on tight!
