Eclipse Week

Remember the total solar eclipse last year?

Tomorrow there's another one and various tour companies have been selling holidays to Africa and Egypt for those that want to witness it.

According to my astrologically minded friend (and I have to say, I can see it), the interim has been a period of massive opportunity and upheaval. She's not online and I forget when the last period like this was (86? 96?) - I'll find out eventually but she did say that in retrospect it will look like a double-double shake up. The autumn and winter we have just gone through threw all the cards in the air, uncovered deceits (whether deceit of others or where we were fooling ourselves) politically, internationally and on a very individual and personal level. Things ended. With a longer term view it will seem that what crashed to the ground were the houses of cards we and others built and came to rely on over the longer period. In some ways a return to who we really are and in some ways a massive move forward. In short, one huge celestial spring clean.

What I meant by a soft landing is this: whether this chaotic period simply taxed you or also shamed you, we should be coming out of this, to different personal degrees, with more strength, more awareness, more honesty. In short, slightly better tabs on the truth. Any changes you have made or that have been made to you, should all work to the good of those with sufficient humility to accept and absorb them. New eyes.

Match 29th - the solar eclipse is the end of this - not with a bang, shutters down, as it will have a gently softening effect for a few days - the soft landing. IF this is true (or true for you) you will look back beyond the past six months and feel better for having gone through them, you might even also feel that way about the past decade.

The day, as an eclipse day, is also supposedly the best one for starting or announcing new projects, although most of us, I guess, will still be too busy absorbing the enforced insight into who we really are.

Fingers crossed.

Congratulations to She Weevil.

Cheryl -- I was taught that an eclipse (solar or lunar) and the two or three days on either side of it indicates a heightened potential for accidents. Know anything about that? I guess the general counsel would be to do everything with an extra degree of caution.

Very interesting description you've offered. Can't wait to see what shakes down for everyone.

Zilla - Is that just lunar eclipses? I'll go and look it up.

Hmm. I had my accident and hope that's it! Never heard about the accident thing before but then I don't know much about this.

Otherwise I'm hoping for my soft landing.

Interesting about the honesty thing because I can definitely identify with that. I'm not a dishonest person but do have great chunks of my life kept secretive from my mother and a lot of this has changed all of a sudden early this year.

Gosh, all of this right after the Mercury Retrograde period. And then throw PMS in there & it's no wonder we're all screwy!

Well that certainly makes sense. last six months - in fact last eight years have really been pretty hard going on a number of fronts (psychological, professional, interpersonal). Could do with some stars going in the right direction!
