Are you feeling "Pushed"?
Hang onto your hats, people! We are heading into some eclipses right away that are bound to bring some sweeping changes into your life! On November 25, we will experience a New Moon in Sagittarius and a partial eclipse of the Sun which will be followed by a Full Moon/Lunar eclipse in Gemini on December 10. And then...just in time for Christmas, on December 24 we have a New Moon in Capricorn.
Eclipses have a tendency of bringing things to a head. Solar eclipses occur when the Sun and Moon occupy the same degree in the zodiac. Since the Sun is connected with the outer world, an eclipse of the Sun usually brings changes that are visible to you and those around you. A solar eclipse can bring a much needed development, sometimes revealing a challenge that needs to be overcome before you can create the next chapter. Eclipses are the Universe's way of pushing us out of our comfortable nests. The coming eclipse is in Sagittarius, who's ruler is Jupiter, sometimes known as the great benefactor, bringer of luck, but also known to cause expansion to the areas of life that aren't so great. Sagittarius teaches us to reach beyond what we know to be possible, gather our courage and shoot for the stars.
A partial Lunar eclipse occurs on December 10 with the Moon in Gemini and the Sun in Sagittarius, I wonder how many of us will be pushed to have that conversation we have been avoiding because of a slip of the tongue (ours or another) I wonder if any of us will be shocked or surprised by what others reveal to us, or what we let slip ourselves. Lunar eclipses bring realizations from the inside which can act as a catalyst to existing situations and relationships. A Lunar eclipse happens when the Sun and the Moon are in opposition, which results in pressure between what we "want' and what we "need". Rest assured that whatever comes up from your subconscious is intended to assist you in your personal evolution.
Now, with all that being said, eclipses don't always affect everyone so intensely and you may want to consult with an astrologer to check if and how it may affect your chart. I observe the New and Full Moons for ceremony, so I take into account the astrological positions of the Moon. When there is an eclipse, I focus on using the energy to facilitate the changes I want to initiate, rather than bracing myself for an energetic onslaught. I see it as throwing a message in a bottle into a tsunami.
So are you ready for change? This winter we are having some fabulous classes and workshops to help you do just that! Whether its self development, business development, or relationship challenges, we have something to help you get to the next level! I will be posting all the Winter classes shortly.
