Every year we have a season of eclipses - in the Spring and the Fall. In ancient times, eclipses were ominously associated with a fall from power for a nation, or the death of a leader.
Both the ancient Chinese and the Indians thought a snake attacked the sun during an eclipse. The ancients also concurred that making lots of noise was the best way to scare the devouring creature away.
The earliest recorded eclipse was in China on October 22, 2134 BCE. Sadly, it manifested bad luck for the two court astrologers who lost their heads because, since they had failed to predict it, the emperor had not prepared to make the necessary noise to scare the devouring dragon away.
A Time of Great Power
So, we fast forward to our age of 'knowledge - seeking - wisdom', and now watch the eclipses on webcam, But, what does it mean for you? Think of a Solar eclipse as the moon standing in front of the Sun. Translated into the language of astrology, it's a time when your emotions unite with your manifest reality - which can be a good thing. The eclipse signals an opportunity get your heart and soul, your reality and your desires - into alignment.
Ghosts Out of the Closet - Neptune and Mars
Every eclipse has a planetary signature based on the conditions of its origin called the Saros Cycle. The New Moon Solar eclipse of April 28th is a member of Saros Cycle 16 South, and was birthed through Neptune and Mars. These two planets present a signature of dealing with wasted energy and even misdirected motivation - in other words - ghosts, old habits, defeating messages, and past failures begin crying for another chance to live.
This sculpture was created by Oka, a famous Balinese mask
maker. It took him 12 year to make because he worked on it only at the time of Full Moon. It was never intended to be sold, but, when I saw it, and knew that it depicted an eclipse, the Sun devouring the Moon, he agreed for me to own it. I'm honored to own this magical work of art.
It's important to note that with this eclipse being under the influence of Neptune and Mars; it's may be advisable to wait to take action!
If you need to make a major change in your life, consider that you have the next 6 months to prepare, and take heart in knowing that the New Moon of October 23rd signals a positive and passionate time to be in alignment with your new world.
This is not an excuse to continue living with the ghosts, but, it's an opportunity to get clear on the fact that you need to do something about them, and they're not going to go away on their own.
