Even though this morning's total solar eclipse wasn't visible from the U.S., we're feeling its effects. Here are some extraordinary photos to help you get up close and personal with the energy, courtesy of NASA.

With the Earth, Moon, and Sun in alignment during an eclipse, we connect with our destiny's deeper calling. At the Lunar Eclipse on March 14th, we cast a light on our interior shadows for purification. And it was intense! (See March 28th entry, Emergence).

At the Solar Eclipse, we're called to dive even deeper, to bring forth our highest and best selves. Pluto, planet of transformation (its calling card reads, "Sex, Death, Rebirth"), is at the Galactic Center--which it hasn't visted in 248 years. Individually and collectively, we are ready to clear the blocks to greater common-unity and healing/wholeness.

Eclipses are an intense point in "time", shining the Light into Earth's darkness as well as our own. Emotion (energy in motion) is at high tide (the Moon rules emotion.)

Knowing this allows us to be more consciously in control of how we respond, rather than reacting by rote. It's a time of loss, of blessing and releasing the old with gratitude for its teaching. Then we have space for the new to enter us.

Pluto and the Galactic Center are shifting the 3rd dimensional reality template. While this process is underway, the best place to be is quiet and calm within your own core. Meditation, yoga, drumming, dancing, journaling, walking in nature, are all good practices for now. Remember, too, to drink lots of pure water to aid toxin release, as necessary on the emotional plane as the physical one.

At the same time as all this is happening, the New Moon is in Aries, planet of forward motion and action. So, once we've made peace with the old and space for the new, it's time to welcome Spring full-out, embracing life with the sensual, Earthy ecstasy that is the Ram's hallmark.

Blessed Be!
