'Turn around, bright eyes. Every now and then I fall apart.'
Oh Bonnie! Hands up if you're feeling something...something you can't quite define...it feels odd, weird, mysterious or subtly grotesque? Welcome to the full moon eclipse. In contrast to western astrology definitions the vedic interpretation of an eclipse goes something like this: as the karmic axis shadow the two great lights in our sky (the sun and moon) this shadow creates chaos within the mind and soul. Feeling disconnected from our sources of light we start to see more of our darkness and demons. Now before you panic about sinking into the hellmouth and summon your inner Buffy...there is always insight to be gained.
The moon is eclipsed this time around so our mind is feeling both vulnerable yet also perhaps more spiritual. Some can expect big disturbances (especially if your own sun, moon or ascendant fall in Taurus or Scorpio) and yet others can just have a delicate uneasiness or a subtle feeling of deception or disillusionment about their current reality. With eclipses there is always a mystery as this is deep karmic rubble. This rubble is yours to explore over the next few days particularly tomorrow night from 6:47pm-11:49pm AEST. The remedies suggested during this time is to eat light or fast, stay away from big groups of people and meditate. Any spiritual practices are heightened or amplified at this time.
On a mundane level I see this eclipse as a way to see what's really happening in our connections right now - the moon is in Anuradha which shows us how to devote, respect and honour both ourselves and those we commune with. The eclipse will either cast a shadow over these connections causing the heart to feel isolated/lonely or amplify where you are incorrectly pouring your heart into fruitless love/connection. Why so cruel? Well I'm glad you asked - as this is the karmic axis it is why we are here. The lessons we are here to learn or balance from previous actions/lives. So it may feel weird but it is through this weirdness we can start to remove the veils of illusion and get true insight. Through this insight we can start to see our part we have played or are playing...essentially cast light on our own shadows and finally accept. Finally grow.
