“Consider that right now – in the window of the eclipse energy and this month’s intensity pushing issues to the surface – is a pivotal moment in time for creating what you want next!” – Selacia
With Thursday’s solar eclipse adding to the intensity of an already powerful month, you may be wondering where we go from here. Even more important than this question right now is: “Where do you want to be when the dust settles from October’s wild ride?”
The answer you get to that second question is instrumental in helping you create what you want next.
In this article, I’ll provide insights and suggestions for honing in on your passions and discovering your blocks in the way of fulfilling them. The passions I refer to here are the dreams of your soul, incarnated now to bring them into manifestation as part of your life purpose.
Dreams of Your Soul
Most likely you have big and broad dreams – like helping to create a loving and peaceful world. As a divine changemaker, you naturally are encoded to want that and to be one of those who focus on the light even in the darkest hours. That one huge dream, in fact, will always be there in the background – helping to propel your other dreams!
You also have very specific and personally relevant dreams in these moments. In your own creation process, you have identified them as goals you could see, feel, or touch when they manifest.
These things could be a new career direction, a new or revived relationship, or simply feeling more whole as excess baggage falls away. Invite your inner wisdom to help you connect with your own dreams as you continue reading. Don’t over think this – simply allow insights to bubble up to the surface.
Creating What You Want Next
On Thursday, at about 3 PM on the West Coast, or about 6 PM EDT, we will be treated to a partial eclipse of the Sun. This will progress in stages, and so you will have the chance to see that there seems to be a slice taken out of the Sun, visible all along the North American continent. Of course, BE VERY CAREFUL not to look directly at the Sun without deep protection, such as eclipse glasses or many layers of photographic negative; sunglasses are not strong enough protection. In the Eastern United States this event combines with sunset, either disrupting it or making for an excellent light show depending on where you are. The eclipse has astrological implications as well. Astrologers think of a Solar Eclipse such as this one, even though partial, as an extra powerful New Moon whose effects can be long-lasting if it hits your chart, and as Mars makes future transits to the eclipse degree. By the common understanding, eclipses take up to six months to work themselves out in your life.
Mars will square this eclipse degree on December 5th, oppose it on March 31st 2015, and will not conjunct this point until early 2016. It could be therefore, that the events that come up for you now, in this late October and early November timeframe, will be characteristic of the powerful ending of the year and the transition to the following spring, with implications for the year of 2016. This is so because we have a very interesting period coming up at this time, of the last two hits of the Uranus-Pluto square that are currently stirring, and which come to a head in mid-December and also during the month of March.

New Moon Solar Eclipse At 1 Scorpio, October 23, 5:56pm EDT, 2:56pm PDT, 10:56pm GMT

The energy changes dramatically today, as the Sun AND the Moon AND Venus ALL enter Scorpio to join at the very front edge of the sign in the dark of the New Moon. AND, by the way, it’s a SOLAR ECLIPSE! Most of North America, and Mexico, will be able to see this partial eclipse. We might just as well celebrate Halloween on this witchy and alchemical day, one that veritably drips with esoteric arts and mystical symbols. This is a mouth-watering, triple dark chocolate truffle to some, or bitter dose of emotional medicine to others. Examine the depths of your heart to tap into your truest desire and draw it to you over the next two weeks. Be careful what you wish for. Several multiple astrological genius aspects are activated. Magic is clearly afoot.
This New Moon just over the Libra line into Scorpio fuses the energy of both signs. On conscious and unconscious levels, there are decisions that we have been weighing and considering, during the span from the last Full Moon’s Eclipse to this one, stirred by Mercury’s retrograde cycle punctuating the two eclipses that may evoke a strong undercurrent of moodiness and some dissatisfaction. As we resolve this, in the Heart’s favor, this eclipse tips the Scales of Libra in the direction of our deep desires. Neptune’s benevolent influence invites us to feel our way into the unified field, a dark center rather like an eclipse, a resonant pool of all possibility. Dream your dearest dream, pray, meditate and surround yourself with loveliness. Continue reading
It’s such a gift for me to be able to connect with you in this way again.
The month of October starts off with a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse occurring on the 8th that will highlight the relationships in our lives.
These energies are giving us the opportunity to look at our relationships from a higher level. They are calling us to ask important questions, such as:
Are these relationships operating from a space of integrity, honesty and mutual respect?
Are we allowing ourselves to speak our truth in a kind, loving and productive way, without intending to dim our light and the light of others in the process?
Is it time to move on from certain belief systems, people, places and experiences that no longer feel to be in resonance with where we are in our lives?
And could it be time to align with new ideas, people, places and experiences that support and are in harmony with the kind of reality we desire?
The answers to these questions and much more will reveal themselves as we move through this upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse.
In all of our relationships, the art of listening can be a powerful beneficial practice. It can help us receive greater clarity as to whether or not certain relationships are meant to continue in our lives. Continue reading
How have you been since we last connected, at the beginning of last month?
In April’s Forecast, I shared that there would be several celestial alignments that would inspire rapid changes to occur in our consciousness, and that a big part of this change would include a profound purification of our mind, body and emotions.
The Solar Eclipse at the end of April was the exclamation point that closed the doorway to what was probably one of the most intense yet transformative times in the last 10 years.
If you glided through the past month completely unaffected by the intense energies, then you’ve probably reached a point of great balance within yourself.
However, if you struggled with those profound shifts, know that you are not alone, and that you are exactly where you are meant to be on your path.
For many, the experiences of the last month have left them asking, “Did that really happen?”
Last month, many experienced the deeply rooted patterns that contribute to the creation of fear-based reality, which promotes separation, coming to the surface more potently than ever. These patterns came up so strongly this time around, right in front of our faces, so that we can free ourselves of them once and for all. Continue reading
Eclipse1 ~ Rarity
Artist’s Rendition of The THIN RING of the Annular Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse on April 29, 2014 over Antarctica
The April 29, 2014 Annular Solar Eclipse is a rare kind where the totality of the ‘Ring of Fire’ will only be visible for 49 seconds over Antarctica. In addition, the ring is especially thin.
This particular eclipse is also rather unusual because the central axis of the Moon’s shadow misses Earth entirely while the shadow edge grazes the planet. This is what’s known as a non-central annular eclipse.
Non-central Annular Eclipses are very, very rare. Out of the 3,956 annular eclipses occurring during the 5,000-year period -2000 to +3000, only 68 of them or 1.7% are non-central (Espenak and Meeus, 2006).
The nearest Solar Eclipse that was this exact occurred on August 29, 1486, and will not occur again until January 8, 2141. – http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OH2014.html
The thin ring that appears for only a brief moment, and the non-central aspect of this eclipse, really set it apart. It is fitting that it is ending the Eclipse/Cardinal Cross Vortex of April 2014, as it was a special opportunity for raising our spiritual consciousness within a cauldron of intense change.
