Eclipses will bring a random event you do not expect, didn't know about, and one that is completely outside your control, yet that event will bring vast changes to your doorstep
Eclipses are like the Death Card happening in our charts. Wherever they fall they bring sudden surprises in terms of an external event, or an internal shift of important proportions.
For a better idea of eclipses in general and a look at where it might affect you read my Energetic Forecast for the month, or visit the store to see how your sign will be affected.
Let's go into depth about the themes of this particular eclipse chapter shall we ? When we use the Sabian Symbols to get to the heart of an astrological event sometimes we can predict things to come. Sabian Symbols are allegories for every sign in the zodiac. If you look up your own birth chart you can find the exact degrees of every planet of yours and find the story that goes with it too. It's really eye opening . As you read this description below think of who you know - personally or in the media, politics, religion who fit this:
(PISCES 18°): IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE. The collective appeal of a well-staged and exciting display of skill and/or oratory.
At first, Marc Jones interpreted the "gigantic tent" as the locale for a revivalist's meeting; later he suggested a circus tent instead. In a sense, the basic meaning is the same whether it is the traditional performance of skilled clowns, acrobats or animal trainers, or that of a religious fundamentalist dramatizing an old religious imagery, what takes place is the use of personal achievement and conviction to bring a crowd to a state of enthusiasm sufficient to make it forget its boredom with everyday routine or its familiar sins of commission or omission.
At this third stage of the seventieth five-fold sequence, the individual person and the collectivity are brought together in a significant performance which subtly strengthens the communal spirit directly or indirectly. The implication of the symbol, whenever it is found operating, is that the time has come for the individual to dare to present himself and his works to his community for applause, or for the purpose of attracting a following. What is suggested is PUBLIC SELF-DRAMATIZATION .
Does Donald Trump come to mind anyone? How about anyone else you know who speaks well or likes to grandstand in some way ? Could this be you ? Are you ready to show the world who you are? If you have been shy to show the world your talents this could be your push. If you never allow yourself to be complimented or take credit where its' due, this might be your time. If you are sitting on art or a book that you haven't been able to submit, or a course you can't seem to finish - ask yourself why you're having fear of being seen ?
On the global stage when seeing this Sabian Symbol I felt right away an important declaration is coming in public, one we may not like much, but it will launch others into action or response to it , and my feeling is that this month is a game changer internationally. As the symbol suggests, we will see good orators, or those who muck it up in public. We may see followings that belong at a circus side show - or more dangerous rhetoric passing as entertainment. As the tent image suggests, people's emotions are roused, excitement generated, and it can be used for many different ends. In our own lives, let's use it for the greater good around an important cause or issue.
Any eclipse that deals with Pisces and Virgo are going to have those victim/saviour dynamics we so need to work on. Asking ourselves the tougher questions around this dynamic can be really tough but ultimately rewarding. Am I helping really? Was I asked to help or am I swooping in there to save the day? What does the other party actually need vs what we may want to give them, or see happen for them. It's hard to step back and see our own investment in helping or saving others. We know intellectually we can't save them, but we continue all the behaviour around it anyway. This eclipse grouping it will be important to examine this and to clear this karma with others.
How does this all tie together? When we have people on podiums or pedestals in our lives, giving them power with their words, we are directly or indirectly asking them to save us somehow too. We want the religious leader to show us the way to salvation. We want the politician to protect our rights and freedoms. We want the charmer to entertain us and distract us from ourselves somehow. We have centuries of history of giving our power away- if not our very human nature.
The good news is we are in progressive times where many are awake and do see through it - even if we are scared of those who blindly follow - I feel we are a growing number who are awake and can play a significant role. Let the Lunar eclipse awaken it for you!
Now take a good look how it changes for the Lunar eclipse !
(LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED.
KEYNOTE: The ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values. The person who plays this role is always potentially an INNOVATOR.
Whatever transpires in the first eclipse, but the second Lunar eclipse you'll be feeling ready to jump on a ride into the sunset. The descent and the fire that picks us up again is the overall feeling of March for me. Life gets clearer and you will be shown what works and what really doesn't. You will see the karmic links to people that are good for you, not yet learned and those you can now let go.
March is a changing month for the better
