WHEREAS LUNAR ECLIPSES OFTEN MARK SIGNIFICANT ENDINGS, SOLAR ECLIPSES HARKEN BEGINNINGS. AS ALWAYS WITH ANY ECLIPSE; EMBRACE CHANGE.
This eclipse begins the Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog. Read about the Chinese Astrology of this year here. The New Moon itself is exact at 1:04pmPST, and occurs at 27 degrees Aquarius via the Tropical Zodiac.
The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “An Ancient Pottery Bowl Filled with Fresh Violets” (Lynda Hill). It calls for simple, natural beauty, held by an ancestral wisdom.
The Western World is married to linear concepts of time. But there are many traditions in which time is not so straightforward. Rather, time is circuitous, some would say, promiscuous. The future and past are combining and copulating, giving birth to one another with abandon. There are beings who traverse there in the space betwixt definition and regulation; those who hop timelines and bend frameworks inside invisible shared superhighways of neurological nets. These are the rebels, the mavericks, and reformers. The untameable creatives. Those with attunement to the higher mind that comprises collective genius.
