Annular Eclipse of the Sun
Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac. It embodies all of the energies of all 12 signs. It has the deep understanding of one who has been around the block a few times. It's been around ALL of the blocks a few times. It assimilates and transmutes the energy of all that it has learned and gathered in its journeys around the wheel of the year, in the journeys on the wheel of Life.
That doesn't mean that Pisces knows all and feels all. But it knows a lot and it feels a lot.
The ruler of Pisces – Neptune – is the place where our dreams wishes hopes desires and delusions reside and grow. There are many paths and dreams and byways and illusions that come with this sign.
There are two fish, attached to one another. One is jumping up into the light of the Sun, tugging the other toward the surface.
The other is down in the depths, exploring what is transforming and turning in the depths. That one pulls the sunny one down below for a look.
We need both. We operate in the day time, on the Earth plane, seeing what is there and operating within that construct.
We also must see what lies beneath- both in our own ever changing consciousness and what is happening on a deeper level in the group consciousness.
There can be sleight of hand here.
We can turn our attention to obvious changes in mood and weather and not be prepared for the bigger storm over the next ridgeline.
With the new Pisces Moon, we take the time to assimilate and become conscious of what we have learned and experienced and gathered in the past year(s).
We come to our own center and see where our two fish lead us.
We are aware of our blind spots. We are aware of our favorite delusions and know the path down which they like to lead us. Getting involved in daily routine can help with equilibrium.
We know how to remember our patch of sunlight while we root around in the reeds for tasty morsels of Truth.
We have ALL been around the block a few times and we have access to our own compass of truth and creativity.
Getting lost in the reeds and weeds and staying there is one way to go, and the balance of all we’ve learned will lead us to our unique and useful and wise wave upon which to ride home.
The Leo Full Moon will be eclipsed by the Sun in Aquarius on Friday Feb 10 or early Feb 11 if you are closer to GMT.
Leo is ruled by the Sun so to be eclipsed by the ball of fire while cocooned in the emotional moon asks us to love ourselves and hold ourselves gently.
The energy we are receiving here regards our creativity, our generosity – which we give to ourselves, first, and our very hearts.
With Aquarius sun it is like solar flares of creative genius are going to shock each one of us into a creative cycle. With Mars in Aries til March 9 we are connecting instinctually to that creativity and to each other.
At first we may just have roiling feelings, a fire in the belly that moves to the heart and the head.
We may not make anything at first as the influx of energy moves in waves through us. But the waves will keep coming and receding and in the calm moments ideas will be revealed. We can then commit to paper or video or conversation the creative outpouring that each one of us alone has to give.
In joining with our friends and our communities –as Aquarius is the rebel who relishes friends, the alienated one who yearns for its group, we share these pieces of ourselves that are becoming more clear and more authentic the more we have the courage to share them.
Sometimes, we may not understand what we are coming up with UNTIL we share it – we may find then, that we may have been designing one side of a coin and a friend, unbidden, has been designing the other.
In this way, the beauty and usefulness and integration of each of our creative self expression can be identified.
Each voice, each muffin, each painting, each idea, each solution or tidbit of a solution contributes to the whole.
We may sometimes go off on our own and gestate and reflect and produce. We then come back to the friend(s) and find how our pieces fit together. Like stone soup or a potluck dinner or a crazy quilt.
So if you feel ablaze with ideas one minute and incinerated the next, that's ok. Go with the kindest process for yourself. Be warm hearted and generous with yourself first. Send loving soothing vibrations to your own physical heart every day. Thanks for beating. Thanks for leading the way and for the guidance you give. Leo rules the Heart. Aquarius rules the higher mind. The Head and the Heart and the fire of gut awareness that is Mars in Aries are integrating so that we can be useful on all levels – for ourselves and for the good of the whole.
It takes heart, it takes courage, it takes naps in the Sun that lead to the allowing of flashes of genius.
We then create the lives we want with ease and grace and the delight of expansion.
