Lasting 33 minutes and 45 seconds in duration, tonight will mark the end of the first eclipse season of 2013. Although it is sure to be felt, because this is an appulse eclipse, it will not be visible. It is also occurring during the third of seven exact Uranus-Pluto squares and destined to assist in the continuation of much needed change—individually, as well as collectively.
Awareness to your individual past patterning, as well as your soul’s current destiny, is one of the many gifts Astrology offers. When you feel stuck and not able to create movement in your life, you have likely become too comfortable with the security of past familiarity. Therefore, discomfort will become more intense in order to instigate movement into a new way of interacting in life. During important Eclipse periods such as this one, the universe is encouraging us to awaken to our individual and collective destinies.
The theme for this final eclipse of the season is one of communication; with a special emphasis on truth versus belief. Along with Jupiter–the ruling planet of this eclipse–Venus, Mercury and the Sun are all transiting in the sign of Gemini. This stellium of Gemini planets is creating an intense emphasizes on thinking and communicating with mindfulness. Lastly, the planet Neptune is making a challenging aspect to this eclipse and stressing the need to heal what is keeping us from our true nature.
Following are a few questions you may want to ponder during this eclipse:
What are your individual beliefs at this moment in time?
What stories have you created or fabricated about your reality?
Are your thoughts and communication reflecting your individual destiny—your personal truth?
If yes, wonderful! If not, this eclipse is an opportunity to acknowledge that which no longer serves you so you can move into proper alignment with your innate wisdom—truth consciousness!
We are not here on earth to change our destiny, but to fulfill it. ~Guy Finely
The energies of an eclipse can be felt a couple of days before and after an eclipse. The ancient sages believed that eclipses were a time for meditation and learning; a special time to honor the spiritual aspects of your life. Try to keep your schedule light, remain internally focused, eat only pure foods, and do not consume alcohol. The veil between earth and the heavens is thinner during an eclipse, allowing you to more easily connect to the eternal universal wisdom that is your divine essence.
