With Jupiter and Saturn less than a degree apart in the skies we come into the solar eclipse new moon at 3:13am AEDT tomorrow. Signs Scorpio (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus), Capricorn (Jupiter, Saturn) and Pisces (Mars) are ruling the skies at the moment. Even the lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu are in Taurus and Scorpio - what does this tell me? Being all feminine signs of the zodiac we need to become more receptive of our soul essence (within) and still at the moment - regardless of all the chaos that is about. The sun is being shadowed by the moon - the sun traditionally represented the light of the soul and the moon representing our minds - the mind is overpowering or standing in the way of the energy that binds us all. You may already be noticing today how you are caught up in the mundane or habits of thought? What practices can you nurture at this time that creates contentment? Another way to look at this eclipse is that moon is blocking the sun to show you where you are not feeling content, safe and happy in your life (all moon traits) in regards to your confidence, expression, willpower, soul (all sun traits).
The eclipse being in Jyestha has the power to rise and conquer in battle. The battle here is both internal and external. Internally it is our lower patterns and traumas keeping our heads held under - externally it is the future of the planet and all its living beings. Jyestha has a symbol of an umbrella so even though it has the courage to fight and win battles it also offers protection from the storm. In fact Jyestha is the older sister who is both parent and friend with a shoulder to lean on in a very relatable way. Can you be this older receptive/nurturing (feminine) guide to another or lean on one you know if you need at this moment in time?
This most certainly feels like a buildup to the Jupiter Saturn conjunction on the 21st. Leave a comment below if you're feeling to share your experience - I would love to hear and have us connect with each other during this time. The power of the feminine signs and the feminine archetype (which is in us all regardless of gender) is to come together and connect. The eclipse being in Scorpio points to massive transformation and now more than ever we need each other to do this.
