Solar Eclipse 21 May 1, 2012
The Eclipse period is a time of immense transformation for us all – on many levels it indicates the shifting of energy to new pathways. I liken it to a railway track where two tracks divide going in different directions. With the pull of a lever the track will direct the approaching train to the other direction. This is what we all can do with our lives in the weeks surrounding the eclipse. The zodiac position gives the focal point of change. For the Solar Eclipse occurring in May 2012 this will be at 0’ Gemini. For those of you that know your birth chart it is also appropriate that you take into account the house position this sits in your chart. Planets at either the conjunction (sitting at the same point) or the opposition (sitting opposite) are pulled into the intensity of life changing events. Where in your life do you want to make significant changes? Gemini is the zodiac sign of communication, mind stimulation and the sharing of ideas. This is an excellent time for us to clear the air of unspoken words, to share our interests and inspiration and to open our minds to new concepts.
We are all under enormous pressure to create a breakthrough in our lives – while this has been on for a few years now the pressure has not subsided, quite the contrary as it is only getting higher. Current planetary positions indicate this to be a birthing process – just like our own physical birth when we came into this life we need to go through a metaphysical birthing. The period before the actual birthing has to be uncomfortable otherwise we wouldn’t want to leave the cozy location. This applies to the Mother as well –it is natural for her to feel uncomfortable in holding the 9 month baby inside of her, this inspires her to birth the child. So on that note don’t resist your feelings of discomfort, they are necessary parts of the birthing process. The main point to focus upon is to keep moving, keep releasing that which you no longer need or want. Ultimately we are to lighten our energy – in all ways.
