The turning of the wheel is just that: a turning of the wheel. There’s little effort required, in fact, effort tends to get in the way of inspiration, which in turn requires perspiration, and tends to lead to exasperation, if you are prone to procrastination. The time is always now, but no time tends to be better, but when there is the odd confusion of an eclipse. For during an eclipse something is hidden, unseen, missed, hiding behind, trying not to be seen, or perhaps wanting to but not having the confidence or fidelity to come out and sing.
So what it is now? who is the one who can tell? Can anyone tell your fortune or is it yours to be made? You know what the winged ones would say to that, or the 4 leggeds, or the creepy crawlies, or the wise one’s of the sea, or the fairies within the earth, and the ancestors. Shit, everyone but anyone in a body right now knows, and the rest of us must ponder and moan and groan or try to read a tome, or see the messages in the stars, and be not jealous of the one’s who think they have it, for there really is nothing to have, nothing to be, nothing to see, nothing to be sad about, nothing to be mad about, nothing to look for, nothing to search for, nothing to cry for, nothing to run from, nothing to hide from.
Eclipse season is upon us starting Tuesday March 8th with a Solar Eclipse in Pisces, followed by a Lunar Eclipse Wednesday march 23rd on the Aries/Libra axis. Eclipses seem to have a quiet, still, expectant sense to them that tend to be better served in a more abstract way, that is, it’s better to feel them and sense what the message may be rather than arrive at them with pre-determined ideas for what could be. The word eclipse, according to the online etymology dictionary, is an abandonment, a failing, a forsaking. Not the kindest of words or experiences, however, and as always, valuable points of departure from the fallacy of experiencing life as a fixed and understandable phenomenon. It would seem that an eclipse, or eclipses since they seem to be related (duh, everything’s related), are the heaven's way of reminding us that we must stand alone at times to discover the way of growth and renewal, to remember novelty and chaos, to be lost and confused.
There’s three important points in the chart of this eclipse on Tuesday: Jupiter, Saturn, and Chiron. For the day or two of the eclipse the Sun/Moon conjunction in Pisces, joined by Chiron just 2 degrees from perfection, are opposite Jupiter and square to Saturn. That’s a famous ol’ T-square with Saturn, in Sagittarius, as the focal point. This is a lot of Pisces/Jupiter energy that will be highlighted perhaps aiding and abetting a greater sense of abandonment in the moment.
The moment is a herald for each seeker to observe and listen to the words or images or feelings that spring forth from the central nervous system. This is easily mistaken as personal, after all it comes seemingly with one’s own voice, within one’s body, however, that is all part of the mirage. The voice that seems to be one’s own is owned not by anyone, but belongs to the eternal tree standing on the eternal hill, ablaze with the fire that always burns, where love letters may be destroyed and other strategies employed in the goal of evolution.
