The coming Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (Autumn in the South) is an extra potent one, as a Supermoon and Solar Eclipse fall on this day of March 20th at 29 degrees of Pisces. The super closeness of the Earth and Moon the night before the eclipse are what make this a “Supermoon” event. It will be a total solar eclipse mostly visible in Europe.
There are no major aspects from this eclipse to the other planets, but being at the anaretic degree of Pisces in the decanate ruled by Mars/Pluto it is very powerful in its influence. It is also conjunct the fixed star Scheat in the constellation Pegasus, at the leg of the horse. Effects produced in this position can be very very good or very very bad, depending on how the energy is and has already been flowing overall. There are many endings taking place, and the trick is to remain present for them rather than dwelling heavily in the past or gazing too far into the future. These are ultimate endings, taking place at the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac. We are at the point of “no return”. There is a strong desire to move in new directions but many may feel lost or without footing, or overcome with free-floating anxiety. We need only to pause and reach inward for answers, healing and solace. The winged horse represents a magnificent sense of freedom that reminds us we are more than these physical bodies and can reach anywhere – into infinity with our consciousness.
Now and leading up to the solar eclipse on September 13th there will be radical planetary shifts that push us to make some long overdue changes, many of which will become conclusive by August. Some of what happens will likely entail further destruction and catastrophe that force people to simplify, size down, and cooperate with each other more than they ever have. With our dwindling oil and water resources and increased pollution we will need to become a lot more solution-oriented as a Collective.
If we are inner-directed rather that other-directed we will be able to see more clearly into the nature of reality, our own and in general. A crystal energy that may be helpful to work with at this time is selenite, which can enable us to understand and integrate lessons and experiences from past, present and future lives.
This solar eclipse may be the mark of a perceptual and experiential shift in our relationship with what we call God, Creator, or the Matrix. Time and space travel will become increasingly accessible to us both on inner and outer planes in the months to come. It may indeed seem that time is bending itself to accommodate our expanded perceptions and occupations within space.
