Closeout Sale On the Mind

Ready for a great release? This weekend's solar eclipse in Pisces heralds a huge opportunity for surrender and re-visioning! It's a callback to 19 years ago: in the spring of '88, I was awakening, remembering who I am and beginning to reclaim my essence and life purpose. It was a heady time ~ and little did I know what waited in the wings.

Astrologer Stephanie Austin, whose name you may recognize from her Mountain Astrologer magazine column, says:

"We're approaching an extra powerful New Moon, a Solar Eclipse, which forms on Sunday, March 18th at 7:43 PM PDT at 28º Pisces. A New Moon marks the ending and beginning of a monthly cycle; a Solar Eclipse signals that we are closing out a major chapter in our life. Exactly nineteen years ago, on March 18, 1988, there was a Solar Eclipse at 28º’ Pisces. What was happening for you that spring? What is calling you now? What was important last autumn, when there was a Solar Eclipse at 29º Virgo, closely opposite this eclipse?

"Pisces represents the alpha and omega, the infinite, endless journey of creation. A Solar Eclipse in Pisces draws us towards a more unified consciousness, towards seeing beyond the illusion of duality and separation. Having been and done everything, we come to see every aspect of life as part of the divine play. A Course in Miracles speaks to the ultimate goal of Pisces: “When you want only love, you will see nothing else.”

"Pluto at 29º Sagittarius closely squares this Solar Eclipse, symbolizing the necessity to let go of what is no longer serving us. A square is a turning point, a need to “square” things. Pluto's exact square to the Sun on March 19th helps us see what we need to weed or prune in our lives in order to grow. What is no longer working? What is true now? What is your intuition telling you? Pluto challenges us to question everything that closes our minds and hearts.

"This Solar Eclipse interrupts old patterns, and offers instructions for a higher level of understanding and being. To more easily tune into your next step, schedule some quiet time around this weekend and meditate during the peak of the eclipse if possible."
