Intensity Alert – The First Eclipse of 2017

www-motherearthastrology-com1

Is it just me or have things become a smidge more intense since that New Moon silently hung overhead last Saturday?

If you’re experiencing:

  • Out-of-left-field events
  • Sudden happenings that force you to go over old emotional ground (that you likely thought had been dealt with and left in the past)
  • The feeling of being pushed to the limit with all that’s being asked of you
  • A sense of anxiety and/or emotional anguish

… then I’m here to tell you that it’s okay.

You’re not going crazy.

You’re just being affected by the build up to next week’s Lunar Eclipse.

Something is being pushed to grow and emotionally this can indeed be a stressful time.

Partnership issues and family matters can come to the fore during Eclipses; owing to the symbolism of The Moon (Mother, Home, Family) and The Sun (Father),  and we are often asked to let go of something – a pattern, a belief system, a way of behaving…

Before we can let go, however, we need to become aware of what has been buried away in our subconscious; literally swept under the carpet.

It can be an emotionally potent time.

By becoming conscious of whatever this particular eclipse is highlighting within your life and by choosing to take responsibility for healing it, however, you are gifted with the chance to release old emotional wounds and issues.

This type of release clears space and with this Eclipse falling on the North Node, it is a harbinger for possible growth and expansion.

So, in short, it’s time for a clear out.

The type of clear out that allows the new to enter your life…

… But!! this will not happen without your awareness and your willingness to own the issue and to deal with it in the most conscious way that you can.

So, be brave and be honest with whatever appears to you at this time and also – be grateful, because by working through this, you may just make some room for something greater to enter your life.

Bernadette Brady writes in her book “The Eagle and The Lark” that this particular Eclipse belongs to “a family of eclipses that brings with it the element of pleasant surprise. Sudden happiness, a joyful event, the lucky break, the lucky win. The Events which will be occurring … can positively change the person’s life”.

If you’re having a week like mine then that may be difficult to see right now, but if my life experience to date is anything to go on then every cloud really does have a silver lining, so I’m hedging my bets and staying positive.

Especially so, as the eclipse chart holds a Yod, which can also be an indicator for powerful change.

Remember to look where this eclipse falls in your birth chart to see the area of your life that is likely to be affected.

Look for 22 degrees and 28 seconds of Aquarius (the Sun’s position) and 22 degrees and 28 seconds of Leo (the Moon’s position).

What are the themes of the houses that they fall across?

If you need help with understanding this, you can subscribe to my Newsletter and receive a free copy of my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness”.

If the Eclipse falls within 2 degrees of a natal planet, then you are likely to be strongly affected by it. Look especially for 22 degrees and 28 seconds of the fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio).

Wishing you illumination, healing, an upturn and a positive outcome.

Much Love, Toria xo

Saturn is now Direct… What Final Brush Strokes are Needed?

Painting Canvas Outer and Inner World - PAID

Saturn will now retrace his steps back to the point at which he first turned retrograde; offering you the chance to apply the final brush strokes .

What have you been working on since late December 2015?

A project, relationship, job, personal belief system, personal behaviour pattern, your health?

With Saturn in Sagittarius this ‘project’ will likely be connected to your personal truth and your core belief system, which themselves may have been up for some re-work.

Is your Outer World an accurate expression of your Inner World?

What needs to be further worked upon to ensure that these align?

With Saturn now moving at his slowest you may be experiencing the feeling that you’ll never get there; especially if you have planets at 9 or 10 degrees within your chart.

Take heart, however, as it takes a while to birth a new you.

Just imagine if you were a mountain!

According to Aborigine legend it takes a really long time to birth one of those!

As we get into October, Saturn’s speed will pick up the pace until he re-reaches the initial retrograde degree (November 19th 2016) and brings things to a conclusion…

… be that the birth of something or the end of something.

A ‘something’ that has been irrevocably altered.

This will relate to where Saturn has been travelling through your chart and the potential triggers that he has activated (through transits to your natal planets) during this retrograde cycle.
