Eclipse Season upon us
Solar eclipse (new moon) 10/25 + Lunar eclipse (full moon) 11/8
Eclipse season is upon us.
The new moon is a time where a seed is planted, when sun (masculine) merges with the moon (feminine) - sound familiar? When the eclipse is involved, is not just by longitudinal degree, but also by latitude as well; it is a three-dimensional alignment of Earth, Moon and Sun (body, mind and spirit). It is amplified.
The solar eclipse happens on Tuesday, October 25, at 6:49am.
And, in the sign of Libra, in the stellar house of Swati.
The root word of Swati is “Sva,” meaning innate or belonging to oneself. Swati is the independent one, governed by Vayu, the god of wind, which is also how we experience our breath and our speech. The way of transcendence begins with our breath and is the basis of most all spiritual practices. To step out innately toward one’s true self, bridged by the breath.
Sun = Purpose
Moon = Inner relationship
Ketu = Past perfection
+ Venus = Peace on earth
are all together in Swati.
That is a party of planets.
Venus is in a very happy place here but influenced by enemy Saturn, this is where Sun is debilitated, Moon is unhappy and Ketu is neutral. What does this mean?
This is a time for rest.
For doing less.
For preparing for the rest of the year, especially through mid-January.
This is a time to do extra nourishing things, eat the right foods, be in your comfies, take long baths, sit by the fire, and all the things that can support rejuvenation.
The solar eclipse is half the story, the lunar eclipse happens on 11/8 when moon is in Aries with Rahu, opposite Ketu+Sun+Venus+Mercury. It’s a big deal.
For those working with their own personal astrology, you can refer to what houses these eclipses are happening in your chart. The signs are Libra/Aries (new moon/eclipse) and Aries/Libra (full moon/eclipse). It is a full cycle you want to be aware of.
