Solar Eclipses are powerful new moons. Symbolically, it is a time when the universe is letting us know that the message in this chart is extra important and PAY ATTENTION!
If you have a personal planet or point (sun, moon, Venus, mars, ascendant, midheaven) at the degree of the solar eclipse then you will see something happen in your outer world that is related to the planet that was eclipsed.
For everyone, whether you have a planet at this degree or not, it is a time when you will be able to ride the astrological wave of intent and capture the moment to be able to expand your awareness and your personal boundaries of what you know into a greater arena.
The astrology for this solar eclipse suggests that we will confront a few blind spots in our view of the world. Even if you are not an astrologer or those around you are not into astrology, you will see the manifestation of these significant times. It is similar to the old saying, just because you don’t know how electricity works, doesn’t mean you don’t get the benefit of light when you flip the switch.
When you are interpreting a chart you want to first look at where the planets are (the signs) and the aspects between the planets. This sets the stage for what will happen and what we are meant to learn from these times.
The solar eclipse is at 0 degrees, this in itself is quite important as it immediately tells you that the next new moon will also be in Gemini. Two new moons in Gemini and with one an eclipse points to the significance how important understanding, communication and how you think will be prominent over the next several weeks.
So what does this particular astrology chart say and how do you go about interpreting the chart? First look at the aspects with the sun and moon. We want to look at hard aspects; the squares, oppositions, semi squares, which are the circle divided by twos. You will see that the sun and moon is squaring mars in Virgo and Chiron and Neptune in Pisces. What does this mean? The closest square is with Neptune, therefore it is extremely important to be realistic and idealistic at the same time. There may be something that happens where you feel let down, discouraged or even betrayed by life (more on the theme later) yet it is vital to keep the faith, to believe in your life and what you know in your heart is true. At the same time challenge your beliefs! Are they really yours or do you espouse words that have been implanted and memorized from years gone by and don’t give them a second thought. This is a time to think.
Mars and Chiron are opposite, Chiron; the civilized centaur was a teacher, who taught the children of the ‘gods” music, herbs, astronomy, and medicine. Chiron opposite mars can have several interpretations, one, the most obvious is the opposing forces between the need to heal, and the fighting stance against mar aggression and selfishness. Looking deeper into the meaning can be two colleagues, after all Chiron did teach the warrior Achilles who later led the Trojan War, arguing their personal point of view. Mars in Virgo can suggest it is time to put action and effort into serving and physical healing; Chiron in Pisces is to heal the soul’s wounds. The open end of this T square is Sagittarius, finding the answers through truth and living according to what is right and just.
In addition there is a conjunction of Jupiter, Mercury, and Sedna in Taurus quincunx Saturn in Libra who is opposite Eris. Adjusting to what is fair for all relationships, such as our relationships with our coworkers, family, community, citizens of our country and the people who we share the planet with are all part of this equation.
This time is especially strong for those who feel they have been left out of the bounty and nourishment from the earth, whether they were passed over for a job, feel angry that their safety or material security has been diminished, or are living in a country where they cannot get clean water and food for their children.
As many of you know we are living in great times of opportunity for change on the planet and in our own lives. The start of 7 Uranus Pluto squares will begin June 24th 2012 with the last exact square occurring on March 16 2015. The message from the universe is to seek truth within, think different, heal your inner wounds, and understand what needs to be balanced and adjusted in your personal life. In taking these steps the healing from within will continue to radiate out to support and help your world, family, community, and in turn uplift the vibration for the planet one person at a time.
