Solar Eclipses are especially powerful New Moons. They are wild cards, bringing unexpected events into our life. Eclipse times are portals for change, revealing to us, somewhat like a cosmic report card, where we are.
If we have been taking steady and right action in our lives, on our true path, we may find ourselves happily and suddenly ahead. If we have been some what off path, Eclipses can be times of course correction, bringing circumstances and events that compel us to slow down, reflect and begin to make the changes needed in our lives.
The energy around the Eclipses can be intense, and emotional. This is especially true for this Solar Eclipse in Pisces, where we find five planets and the Moon’s nodes in Pisces, a sensitive, deeply emotional sign. We can take care of ourselves now by grounding, drinking plenty of water, connecting to bodies of water that we love, such as the sea, or a favourite lake, creating a safe space for ourselves to feel deeply, to dream, to express our deep inner dreams and spirit stirrings through music, poetry or art.
This Solar Eclipse in Pisces asks us to deeply connect with our soul and spirit. This is a propitious time to connect to that which truly inspire us, the dreams that we live for, that which our spirit longs for.
Solar Eclipses are fresh starts, this particular one however, is connected to the South Node, which speaks to a story of our past. There is something ripe here to be released, and grieved. Perhaps it is an old dream which never came true, and needs to be let go of. Perhaps there are old emotional patterns, or ways of perceiving that holds us back from truly becoming who we know in our hearts we want to become. Perhaps we need some help discerning the illusions from the true, rich dreams of our life. How are the currents of your life moving? Are you moving up or downstream?
In Shamanic and Magical traditions, as well as in the Law of Attraction teachings, it is recognized that we have the power to dream reality into being. We are all together dreaming the collective reality that we live in. This gives us tremendous power and responsibility to take charge of our dreams. What new dreams are being born in your life? How will you nourish and nurture it, in this new cycle, so that it is a source of vitality and strength and inspiration in your life?
Along with all the Water in the sky, there the Fire of Mars and Uranus in Aries. Mars and Uranus is opposite to Jupiter in Libra and this is a potentially volatile, angry aspect. Watch for people being edgy, heated and reactive. Jupiter in Libra could magnify and exaggerate differences in relationships, with one or both partners feeling like they need to pull away, be by themselves for a while.
Venus in Aries is also about to go retrograde soon too, on March the 5th until April 15th, so we can expect to see the themes of needing to rework and revision our selves, in and out of relationships during this period.
Stay happy, inspired and connected. Wishing you a most brilliant and fruitful Solar Eclipse in Pisces.
