Solar Eclipse in Pisces: Moving Forward with Faith & Courage, Feb 2017

Feb 26 Solar Eclipse at 9 Pisces, exact at 9:58am EST: Ever since the US election in November, we’ve found ourselves in a new reality. And especially since the presidential inauguration January 20th, that reality has moved, shifted and changed daily. It feels like right now there is nothing to hold on to in terms of grounding ourselves. And this solar eclipse in Pisces with Neptune, Mercury and the South Node are telling us that we cannot go back to what was; we cannot put the genie back in the bottle so to speak. So here we are in this constantly swirling energy with seemingly nothing to grab on to in our outer reality. The usual way, the old way no longer applies. And there appears for right now, to be no set pattern to settle into to give us a sense of comfort. So we must cultivate our own comfort within ourselves at this time. What is that for you? Now is the time to ask yourself that question and to know what you need in order to move forward.

These times of transformation are just beginning and it’s important to recognize this will be a long distance marathon that will ask of us all our strength, courage, perseverance and endurance. These dark times that are upon us require our going through them in order to evoke change and transfiguration, personally and collectively. We must go through this: in fairy tales there is often a dark forest where one gets lost and the hero/heroine usually traverses this forest for seven years. This is where we find ourselves right now, in the dark forest. The path out is serpentine and does not reveal itself easily. It reveals itself moment to moment, move by move and the whole of all the steps lays in the mystery; no one has a formula or a step by step guide with guaranteed success. And as we walk it- we must do so mostly with blind faith, trusting our actions will have effect even if we cannot see immediate results.

Solar eclipses call us to “see” something, to integrate something new into our consciousness and usually bring about this opportunity through intense and sometimes surprising events in a short amount of time; initiation through shock. Are you open to the message and consciousness this eclipse may bring you? Will you listen to Spirit asking you to awaken and not go back to sleep right now? Most of of have certainly been initiated through the constant barrage of shocking events these last couple of weeks.

We are not who were thought we were, that is for certain (speaking collectively). So who are we willing to become right now as we move forward? And who we are is made up of what we believe as much as it is made up of what we do: thought and action both motivated by intention. For so many of us, we’ve found ourselves kicked out of the nest of how things were in the past. Now who are we willing to become, right now, today?

We must surrender to the fire of these intense and transformative times in order to be made into the deeper expressions of our Soul selves. It certainly is not easy nor is it comfortable; true transformation rarely is… And this eclipse is reminding us that trying to “go back” is not an option. We must accept the situation for what it is now in the present moment and we then we will be able to move forward. These are shocking times in American democracy (and for many others in the world as well), it’s undeniable. We are being called to wake up through these shocks and not go back to sleep. We are being initiated to our deeper selves and the journey is always fraught with uncertainty and mystery. The hero’s journey always tests faith. It is essential to take note (perhaps a list) of what is Sacred to you right now and hold fast to those things during these times when you feel the path disappears and you are lost. Our inner compasses are essential now more than ever during these times.
