New Moon Solar Eclipse: Something New on the Horizon

New Moon Solar Eclipse:
Something New on the Horizon

I’ll just apologize straight out for the weird formatting of this post! Mercury retrograde is in full force -i’ve already written it three times . Looks like this publishing app is useless and I’ll have to try something new next time . As we wait…

We’ve just come out of a couple of stressful weeks in which Mars (warrior) picked a fight (or two) with Pluto (power and control) on the other side of the zodiac.

This silly back-and-forth – projecting and counter-projecting, and so on – is so tedious! Despite this, we (or at least I) get sucked in every time!  By now many are seeking a way beyond the polarities,  and this eclipse energy may provide a new window or a doorway to see the world through.

This Gemini eclipse says is time to awaken to a more conscious awareness of our purpose and direction in life (North Node) so that we can become the captains of our own ship! 

‘Two old ladies were driving along-  one said to the other, “Mable, you’ve just driven through three red lights! Mavle looked over in surprise and said  “Oh ! I mistook you for a driver!” ‘ 
Sometimes you just got a laugh at it all! There are so many stories to tell, so many agendas to consider. There’s a mainstream narrative, there are each countries narratives,  there’s are leaders narratives and there are also each persons narrative. In addition to everything in between. 
And each of these stories is made up of a variety of points of view and beliefs. It’s  not always easy to get to the truth, because the very people we rely on for facts and information have been co-opted by various political agendas. So what to believe? What should you focus on? I think we have to get comfortable with saying I don’t really know !
Speaking of what we know or don’t know ~  last year a bunch of government information was declassified around UFOs – and nobody even seemed to even notice because we were so distracted by Covid . I watched a little segment on the news, but that was it. There’s a great documentary on Netflix called The Phenomenon about these disclosures and it’s all quite fascinating. 
These documented stories have the potential to challenge our way of thinking and open our minds to a wide range of alternatives. That Is just one example of new informatio coming to light that can change our way of thinking . Meanwhile,we’re  still being bombarded daily with many falsehoods, manipulations, distortions and it’s hard to sort through them all in the midst of so much pain and fear and chaos. We all know that politicians lie, yet  what really amazes me is that so many people believe them! 
This is the season for telling the truth, yet no one really understands what the truth is. Of course you think you do and you will argue your point endlessly but I would challenge that and suggest that there is a lot we don’t know; still more unveiling to come. 
Meanwhile, the world has gone insane, and the asylum has been taken over by the inmates! Oh wait – it’s always been that way . Maybe we’re just finally starting to recognize it. 
But seriously – we’ve got to start working together. In the new system, petty quarrels and tyrants have no place. Gemini speaks to the diversity of human experience ~  time to transcend political parties, gender politics, ideological stances, ethnicities, assets, angendas and attitudes – to find some common ground. 
Everyone is suffocating. Everyone is in pain. Everyone is giggling. Everyone is in tears. 
Gemini encourages us to enjoy our differences and move past the arguing as we continue our journey through this maze.

At  every eclipse we face a turning point where something is left behind to make way for something new to come in . Whatever notion or idea of how things should be that has led us to this point must be blessed and then relinquished in order to make room for new energy.

A simple ritual of writing down what you’re letting go of and burning it in a candle or fire will assist. 
Although we can certainly feel that change is in the air, there’s a certain vagueness and uncertainty of outcomes requires  an act of faith as we step into the unknown . 

If you plug your chart into astro.com, you can see what house/area the eclipse falls in and have a clearer indication of when a release might happen. It may be a concept, a person, a place, a job, a habit (haha that came out as hobbit!) If you’ve got any hobbits hiding in your cupboards – it’s time to set them free!  

We all want to live with the hobbits in the shire  in the woods (well at least I do !) We’ve all read the story or watched the movie.  When Frodo got called to his great adventure he really didn’t want to go . But fate had other plans for him, and there would be many trials and barriers in his way before he could return home. 
As we transition from the old era to the new (a process that could take many years)  we find ourselves in the in/between. A fog Sedna to have descended and whatever lies in front of us is still unknown.
At this time the setting of clear intentions is extremely important yet how can we do that when we don’t even know where we are heading? The retrograde of Mercury suggests that we take some time to contemplate and reassess our ideas before making any new ones.  Neptune continues  to bring uncertainty -feels at times like we’re operating in the dark.
As the earth’s shadow temporarily blocks the sun’s  light, it invites us to step outside our logic to access our intuition.  Because 90% of our beliefs are held in our unconscious mind, being more self-aware is the first step. Become a witness to your own self programming .
The zeitgeist of the Gemini/ Sagittarius nodal elaxis is ultimately about examining how we find meaning in life (or the meaning OF life! )

By reviewing, redefining  and releasing old core beliefs and old stories (south node in Sagittarius) we can start to see more clearly whi  we are and what we’re doing here. It’s rather shocking to discover that the very ideas that we have basec our sense of self ~ and of belonging ~ may not even be  ours own. 

“Are we free? Are we aware of our surroundings? Are we making decisions based on Full awareness, or are we driven by unconscious dynamics that we’ve inherited, or that we developed as a response to childhood trauma? Insofar as we are not conscious we are not free.”  Gabor Mate 

Facing our illusions can be painful ~ it takes courage to see things as they actually are and not just how we want to see them.

This series of eclipses can reveal the truth around the old stories we have been told ~ and raise our awareness to evolve  beyond hidden  narratives. 

We are beginning a new chapter and it turns out that each of us is actually the author.  It’s time to write your own story! 

You know you want to, don’t you?
