The first of the autumn eclipse cycle is upon us. Yes, eclipses can be momentous and be a catalyst for shifts both for the individual and the collective. Twice a year we have one of each: Solar and Lunar.
The Lunar eclipse will take place on the Aries full Moon on September 27.
Today's Solar eclipse by the Virgo new Moon brings us to a space of rest between the time of ego development from Aries through Leo and anticipation of the time we step out into the community in Libra.
Here we can stop, rest, and appreciate.
For some it is picking actual fruit of the land - enjoying the abundance of good that came and the result of planting and tending so far this year.
Mercury starts a retrograde cycle on the 17th at 16 degrees Venus- ruled Libra going direct again on October 9 at 1 degree Libra. We are given a few weeks to mentally digest what we learned/experienced about how we love and relate to ourselves during the recent Venus in Leo retrograde cycle. We've been reflecting on the creation that is the self.
We can, as we rest in New Moon space-between-breaths energy, look in at who we are at Home.
Who we are at rest, without makeup and social posturing/social anxiety/social networks.
Ahh. just me. At rest.
And, in turn, can we consider/do we want to/can we allow ourselves - to ease out the door, into the world- as that person at rest. Just me.
Also on the 17th Saturn enters Sagitarrius where he will stay until December 2017. The way we structure our lives and structure our learning/relating/time may free up. There wiill be an increase in the intuitive flow guiding our individual and collective movement through the earth plane.
Pluto goes direct in Capricorn on Sept 25. So, with the Saturn influence on Pluto moving forward, our purpose, day to day, may slot into place with a bit less resistance- as we are now allowing ourselves to be more and more in line with what we are guiding ourselves to become.
New Moon in Virgo! The fruit of your efforts and allowing are beautiful. Your sense of ease is increasing every time a feeling of warmth and love and what gives you comfort and fulfillment is invited into your space - your physical/mental/emotional/spiritual/social space.
Much love to you.
