Friday March 20th is a powerhouse day. The Solar Eclipse occurs at 29.27 degrees of Pisces - just about to move into Aries. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and Aries is the first. It is Astrological New Years eve.
The new year commences as the Sun enters Aries shortly after the eclipse, a time of a new start, a new year ripe for new opportunities. But when the eclipse occurs its still in Pisces, the sign which is the culmination of all other signs, the end of a cycle. This energy is ripe with history and knowledge of the human experience, of its potential for good and bad. It is rife with knowledge and wisdom, and so this eclipse heralds in a new, wise energy in the world. It is death and rebirth. If you have planets at late Pisces or early Aries, this will trigger great change in you. But it will trigger great change within us all. This is the birth of the new age, for real.
The battle with Pluto and Uranus has ended its peak energy and is waning, albeit quite slowly over several months before it truly separates, but the battle's peak is over. And this eclipse means that Uranus has won, and the "new" is at hand. This means Pluto will fulfill its promise of the phoenix from the ashes, ending the old to make way for the new...the new power, the new structure and new rules. These two titans won't connect for another 30 years, so we have that time to rebuild. Whatever house these planets fall into in your chart will have great change aplenty. Pisces rising....you are about to be reborn, shedding the old for a new you. Pisces 4th house, expect your domestic life to undergo major shifts. Pisces is your 8th house, expect relations with others to change and you will receive help from others and gifts or opportunities. In the 10th your career could change dramatically, etc.
Pisces rules the 12th house, the place of secrets, karma, enemies, but also the arts and spirituality. Her ruler Neptune creates illusion as well as spiritual epiphanies. This step into Aries with the force of a solar eclipse means many secrets will be revealed and made public. Expect some real shockers over the next few months, as evil is forced into the light of day. Als Neptune is in Pisces now, its home, giving greater credence to spirituality, and Mercury is there too, making the mind succumb to the spiritual. Everything in the world and around us is changing...be more fluid and less rigid and it won't be so hard. Don't cling to the shore...let go and float down the river taking you to new and better options.
The 20th is also a New Moon....new beginnings, new starts. The Sun enters Aries today as well. The first sign, the beginning. An the equinox as well, winter is past and spring is upon us.
Venus moved into Taurus, the home of Venus, so our hearts are filled with caring. Let this flow out of you and into your world and the world. Connect to others and the Universe and feel the warmth of its energy.
Saturn and Jupiter are in harmony, (Saturn went retrograde for several months starting last week), and Neptune connect to them as well, creating an energy for solid change (Saturn), spiritual focus (Neptune) and Jupiter who gives us a strong sense of justice and accounts for all the activism taking place now. Like the 60's, change is afoot, and justice, respect for one another, and practicality must merge. Spirituality is the key to it all. A world of justice, fairness and compassion is sustainable, and so very necessary to our own survival. Injustice, favoritism and selfishness must come to an end. Our spiritual guidance will take us there. Read last weeks blog for more information about connecting your daily life to your spiritual self.
May your coming days be filled with adventure, bravery, new ideas, new actions and a deeper connection to your true purpose in being here.
