The eclipse at 00º Cancer on the umbilical cord to the great cosmic mother, is hugely significant for a few reasons.
It is conjunct the north node in Gemini, making this a pull towards alignment to our collective souls purpose.
It falls exactly on the solstice, the turn of the seasons on the world access point or cardinal cross, so this is not a singular geolocational experience, this is world felt. And our attention is peaked as a globe united from a microscopic virus.
The ring of fire, the annular solar eclipse, where the moon is at its apogee (furtherest point from earth) crosses in front of the sun, not completely covering it but creating a burning ring, seen form parts of Africa, India and China.
It’s also the end of a 26,000 year cycle. An event that is being coined as the single most important event of our lifetime amongst the astrological community. And that is a big call.
I don’t think we will begin to understand this period of time until there is space from it and we reflect in hindsight on this history defining moment, and year.
When I feel into this event, the same image comes to mind over and over. A great rebirthing.
But first the we must traverse the pain and intensity of bringing something new into the world, which means tearing away the old.
A time where sacred space opens up for a collective purging before we call in the soul path of new humanity.
Where there is equality, justice and the belief that humans are inherently GOOD beings. We have been taught that we are each others enemies, that one is ‘better than’ another, reflected in literature, movies, suppression of waht is different, governments and control systems. Stories and false truths implanted in our consciousness, culture stamped out over time. This is the future we have created for ourselves, so now it is up to us to undo it.
There is no right or wrong when it comes down to flesh and bones. We are vehicles for spirit.
Cue emotional intelligence NOW. Don’t try to work it all out with the mind during eclipse season, that is only one part. This is a FELT experience. Get into the body, and the heart, this is our true navigation.
In moments of intensity in our inner lives and out in the world, it is important to come home to ourselves often. Come back to nourishment and self care. Do our practices, get in the body, and move energy and emotions safely. Make time to meditate and centre, sort your home first, before getting caught up in the outward.
Call upon your ancestors and your spirit team for support, ask for guidance. This is a form of self soothing fit for Cancer Season. As physical beings some often forget we can call upon spirit, and how powerful it is to ask them for support. Bring it into your body and feel the solid grounding and heart opening this sacred action brings. Ancestral lines and connection healing right now is so powerful and potent.
Lean in, but take care. There may be days where hiding in your shell is necessary for you, do it, but don’t stay hiding. Lean in to things that are falling apart, the shadows that arise, the uncomfortable parts, explore them, learn new ways.
Seek beauty in humanity often. Spend time in the forests, breathing in the scents of what is real, of what holds us. Our home, our mother. Bathe in her waters and scrub with salt.
It will be an emotional roller coaster, let it flow, and be wise with how you wield your words and actions. When Mars enters Aries in just over a week from now, our passion for a better world will be fierce. And we are conscious enough NOT to create wars, and we must trust that.
We have been to places like these before in the past. There have been viruses, there has been civil unrest, there have been revolutions, there has been war, but what makes this moment different, is that we are evolving. The shadows of what our worlds have been built upon are being exposed. It is raw and uncomfortable, but know that it needs to happen to move to a different place. We can evolve quickly enough to traverse these times with some sort of grace.
Amongst the fragmentation we are also forming alliances with one another, we are opening our eyes and our hearts wider, and we are yielding the power and capacity to create our world in the image of who we truly are. The matriarchal energy is here, we are doing the work and our efforts will prevail.
Seek beauty in humanity often while things fall apart. We are also alive in one of the greatest times, we have technology, we have instant connection to one another across the globe. There is no more hiding. We have reached an apex of exposure that the eclipse with reveal more of.
Balance is paramount. Self soothing is medicine. We all have a role to play and each one of us will experience it differently. A restructuring of our reality is in order, we are in the birth canal.
Remember what you are here to do.
See you on the other side.
