At 5:42am CST there is an Annular Solar Eclipse. At 5:53am CST there is a New Moon at 19° Gemini 47’. And later on in the day, Mercury conjuncts the Sun. There are a lot of powerful portals lining up for us in the heavens. The Moon and the Sun appear to be the same size from our viewpoint here on Earth, and that is what allows for eclipses to happen. The Moon is going to appear to block out the Sun, but because the Moon is furthest away from the Earth in its orbit, it cannot quite cover the Sun, so it leaves a halo. This has great spiritual significance. There is spiritual illumination possible with this eclipse. Because it is a New Moon in Gemini conjunct the North Node, this is a time for new beginnings flavored with the energy of open-mindedness, curiosity, being open to learning, playfulness, beginner’s mind, telling a new story.
Because the ruler of this eclipse, Mercury, is conjunct the eclipse, that makes Mercury extra powerful. Mercury is in its home sign of Gemini retrograde, so Mercury has been asking us to rethink, reimagine, and to be more reflective than reactive. With Mercury conjunct the Sun, we can receive great illumination for what we want moving forward. This is a great time to get amazing insights, downloads, and ahas, so take care to really pay attention to what comes up for you now.
Neptune is in Pisces square Mercury, the Sun, and the Moon, so Neptune is also playing a major role in this eclipse, opening up another portal into communing with Spirit, the unseen, the metaphysical, what you cannot perceive with your five senses but you can sense with your intuition and your feelings. This is a time for dreaming a new dream, telling a new story.
With the South Node in Sagittarius, the energies are inviting us to let go of beliefs, dogmas, self-righteousness, and the ‘I am right so you are wrong’ attitudes that keep us stuck in old stories that don’t serve our evolution. Are the stories you’re telling bringing you joy, vitality, abundance, harmony, and love into your life? Because we are always telling stories. The question you want to ask yourself during this eclipse is what story do I want to tell with my life? If I don’t like what I am experiencing in my life, how can I tell a new story?
