Earthy new moon in Capricorn and a partial solar eclipse bathe us in the energy of so much to do, so little time. Resist the urge to make a bunch of decisions and complete all your projects NOW!
Ground to Mama Earth.
Slow down to her slow, sacred winter rhythm.
Relax – you have time.
Tonight, a Leo new Moon and a partial eclipse of the Sun.
Sacred dance of Light and Dark in our Sky.
Moon and Sun square Jupiter in Scorpio
with 6 planets in retrograde
and yang Mars squaring wild card Uranus.
Time to reset. Tie up loose ends and clear the decks. Clear first and then set new intentions. Choose what you want to focus on going forward.
This current Earth-Sun-Moon cycle is
“a call to dig deep and be fiercely honest about
what needs to change inside so that the outside can follow.”
“a beautiful window within which to set intentions around
a higher vibration of self-love and acceptance.”
Airy Aquarius full moon with a total lunar eclipse clears the air. All kinds of BS falls away. Retrograde Mars also stirs the pot. Wild and crazy times!
Get very clear about what you truly want. Hang on to what you love and value no matter what.
New moon in watery Cancer. Big emotions are intensified by a partial solar eclipse and Pluto in opposition. In these chaotic times, remember to nurture and care for yourself. Even badass warriors need me-time!
Take loving care of yourself so you have the focus & passion to care for your world.
Fiery Leo full moon eclipse this morning may be stirring up
old fears and old wounds within you and those you are close to.
Gently pull your child-self into your heart and
LOVE up the world around you.
Be KIND to everyone today, including yourself.
Next week, the Moon will “extinguish” our Sun for a brief time. A small strip of the North American continent will be aligned just so, and when the Moon moves between our Earth and Sun, it will cover the entire Sun, turning morning into night.
I have fantasized about seeing a total solar eclipse ever since I read Annie Dillard’s description of one many years ago:
“The second before the sun went out we saw a wall of dark shadow come speeding at us. We no sooner saw it than it was upon us, like thunder. It roared up the valley. It slammed our hill and knocked us out. It was the monstrous swift shadow cone of the moon. I have since read that this wave of shadow moves 1,800 miles an hour. Language can give no sense of this sort of speed—1,800 miles an hour. It was 195 miles wide. No end was in sight—you saw only the edge. It rolled at you across the land at 1,800 miles an hour, hauling darkness like plague behind it.
…Less than two minutes later, when the sun emerged, the trailing edge of the shadow cone sped away. It coursed down our hill and raced eastward over the plain, faster than the eye could believe; it swept over the plain and dropped over the planet’s rim in a twinkling. It had clobbered us, and now it roared away. We blinked in the light. It was as though an enormous, loping god in the sky had reached down and slapped the Earth’s face.”
The Sky Gods will perform a bit of celestial magic overhead on Monday August 21. I will be heading north tomorrow to experience the totality first hand. I’m looking forward to the show.
How might this magnificent sky show affect us physically, mentally, emotionally?
