Did You See It?!
Tuesday December 21, 2010
Did you see it? I woke up from deep sleep at around 2:30, and went out with my man who was wide awake and filming it. He's a night owl. A cool, cloudless night with the Moon almost directly above us. What a magnificent sight!
What's going on for you? For me, the eclipse, at 29 Gemini, is a 4th House (home, emotional roots) affair, and both husband and I are Gemini Moons. On top of that our Moons square the generational Pluto-Uranus conjunction in Virgo. So whatever stirs up the Gemini jitters threatens to open up Pandora's Box of intensity. So much so, that after looking at the chart in an eclipse reading, Robert Phoenix suggested an eclipse pre-nup.
Keeping that in mind helped, when I started to feel that inner revving up that's so familiar. The big crisis was toxic smoke from the wood stove, getting smoked out and having to evacuate temporarily. Gemini rules lungs and breath, and the nervous system. I had to call on Wonder Twin powers to find something funny in it all, and not get caught in a super high velocity loop of negative thoughts. And not let the evil twin spoil my eclipse night.
One of my stand-by tricks worked -- a long shower, and writing my wishes in the steam. This eclipse, in signs of messages across worlds, is in play for as long as six months. And the next eclipse is January 4th at 13 Capricorn. So being able to adapt, and expand your perception sets you up to making the most of your inner and outer resources, alliances, and strength to persevere in the year ahead. The first step, and one that happens for many all day long, is redirecting negative thoughts.
This mental flexibility helps you reframe a situation that seems stuck. Mercury in retrograde until December 30th, assists in this connecting dots in a fresh way. It can cause you to see the landscape differently, so your plans change. This adaptability can bring faith in your ability to go with the extreme changes that are happening for so many.
