Annular Solar Eclipse on April 29th at 4:17pm (AEST)
So how are you faring in the midst of this group of powerful planetary, and lunar aspects? (see my last article)
The Solar Eclipse tomorrow marks a brief end to an intensive regrouping, letting go, opening up and staying true to yourself, courtesy of the Cardinal Grand Cross we had last week, and the ongoing relationship between Uranus and Pluto (until March next year).
It brings with it the possibility to shift your consciousness. Eclipses usually bring disruption, so use this time to interrupt your usual ways of operating and dealing with situations, which perhaps haven't been as effective as you would like. Allow for other possibilities to unfold. Always with the intention for the best outcome for all concerned ofcourse.
Surrender to the force of change which is in the air and stay conscious.
The emphasis of the Annular Solar Eclipse does seem to be on relationships and how we experience what we call love. Stand back for a moment and ask yourself about the nature of love. Is the love you share with your significant other and your close friends governed by attachment and fear? Or is it a blending of great souls who bring more than the sum of each into the picture in an overflowing of inclusive humanitarian and compassionate love?
The eclipse, which is a new moon, is in Taurus. And Venus the ruler of Taurus is in Pisces. Enquire into the nature of your love. Is it about indulging in the senses, reveling in sensual bliss and delights. Or is it about a bigger picture and a sense of belonging to the whole? Either way, and with an unconditional heart allow your curiosity to linger on these questions.
'Love your wounds - they reveal what matters most to you, what your deepest soul longing is and what you came to heal in the collective. That is why we chose to incarnate into the families and situations we did, so that we could experience that affliction, and take it on as our own and then rise above it for All...
Love your so-called flaws, they are spiritual jewels that mark our journey and reveal where we let go of the physical to embrace the spiritual fully. It connects us to the deeper soul journey ~ wisdom, maturity, depth and transcendence. We are programmed to see them as flaws, when they are an initiation into the deeper mysteries.
Love your dysfunctions and the things that cause you to lose friends, successes or throw you into life lessons. They help us to find humor, wisdom, liberation and our inner child and this releases us from caring so much about what others think and allows us to find a deeper love of self and rise above the judgements of others.
Love your pain, It teaches forgiveness, tolerance, patience and it gives us the humility we need to unite together in higher consciousness and integrity... It shows us our healing power and how to transform, face our demons and get real with who we truly are and what we need to share and express.
Love your insecurities, they are a part of our genius and higher aspects of self that have just been shut down or unsupported. They show us our gifts and creativity and help us to let go, take risks and be comfortable in our own skin with our own boundaries and standards.
Love your Ego/identity when in crisis, let it be a compass pointed at your higher self, so that all actions, words, decisions and behaviors, reflect the nature of your divine blueprint. It shows us how to remove masks, programmings and ancestral patterns. It teaches us where we abuse free-will and reminds us of how to be authentic, powerful, influential and an example...
Love and honor these things in self and each other and focus on where it can take you and what it truly means, instead of how it makes one look and how it seems. When we see Truth, we see perfection in all things and we know how to find our way home...'
