We are now pretty much between eclipses with the Total lunar Perigee Moon looming late on the 15th in some countries and evening the 16th here.
The Uranus conjunction certainly has had an effect in my world already in the Scorpio vein and although I have no planets in either Taurus or Scorpio its certainly personal.
The eclipse will trine my I C (home zone) and semi sextile to my Jupiter in Libra. It will happen in my solar place of higher mind and travel, release. It is fairly close to black Moon Lillith in my natal chart in my friends and community place and it is certainly bringing up some deep feelings and transformation.
Today with the Moon in Leo, Saturn is conjunct Vesta at 24 Aquarius and if that isn’t a warning to keep strong boundaries against karmic happenings, I don’t know what is. Its as if we must prepare for the onslaughts of time itself and the ramifications of past tyranny of the patriarchal type and I certainly cant argue with that.
But its not really a negative influence, only one to remind us of our inner strength and the structure of our own personal universe, how strong we are on that basic level, unmoving and stoic no matter what comes our way.
A reminder also to remember the equality of all people in the final analysis and not to judge.
(Aquarians take note and those with planets or points near that degree.) But it is for all of us due to eclipse energy.
This is all not surprising at all as tomorrow two of the centaur asteroids are coming out to play and neither of them are nice at all, and in fact they are or can be downright nasty.
Nessus and Mars will conjunct tomorrow at 17 degrees Pisces which happens to be on my Mercury so not sure how this all fits in with the eclipse energy but i will be wary...
The aspect of Mars/Nessus is one of secrets and hidden anger, maybe not so hidden but it could be revealed in different ways such as manipulation, blame or jealousy, vindictiveness.
It's also generational which makes it even more intense.
But the good news is it does invite us to unlock the feelings and let go of the guilt or blame over any mayhem, or heartache the energy has brought to us in the past. Its time to say “the buck stops here” with any form of abuse or long term jealousy leading to revenge or other poisonous actions against others.
Whatever else this aspect will bring it does mean a complexity of feelings on the part of the perpetrator so the main thing is not to be drawn into anything if anyone baits you in the time frame ahead towards the Scorpio eclipse especially in this case if you are Aries or an Arian type person, (Moon/Asc etc) or if you have planets or points near 17 Pisces. Or are a Piscean.
But these asteroid aspects can affect any of us where the energy has been an issue in our lives.
For the perpetrator it would also be about past abuse and its very relevant within a family situation as it can uncover all sorts of past grievances of the abusive type.
Being already in Scorpio energy there is no doubt this aspect is going to bring a lot out into the open individually and globally and it will carry a fiery punch with it.
The other aspect is Ceres conjuncting Absolus at 27 degrees Gemini. Absolus is a newcomer in astrology from around 1995. He is at least as complicated and intriguing as Nessus. Asbolus is described as dark, gothic and deep!
The asteroid has a dark surface , one reason for the name. He was a seer , a centaur in Greek mythology. After having one of his warnings ignored brought out his worst when he later provoked the bloodbath that brought the deaths of Chiron and Pholus at Heracles’ hands. Asbolos was crucified by arrows when he died.
Because of his sight, he was described with the nickname oiônistês (augurist – someone who predicts the future from the flight of birds).
Ceres is of the nature of Taurus and Cancer known as the mother creatrix symbolising the universal mother that creates and nurtures all life and in Gemini this aspect is very much telling us to look for hidden meanings in words said even in a lighthearted manner. It warns us to look deeper that the surface for what is being conveyed such as hidden messages, signs from nature around us especially in the air- birds maybe. (There is a fantail outside my window wanting to get in s I write this.)
Its an intriguing aspect and to me I do see warnings with this to definitely look below the surface to find answers especially if there are cross currents that feel like a threat to our own security or that of family.
Its like something could try to pollute the purity of our own intentions. There is a kind of horror behind some of this as if some are blind to what is actually happening or being said.
Some may call the energy the primitive “ reptilian brain;” the bottom line of awareness, and it can be about a confrontation that requires a radical change of thinking and attitude. Its almost like a reboot to the flow of one’s individuation process especially with the eclipse effect thrown in.
So that is around tomorrow for us to ponder on and some of this sounds distinctly global with all that’s going on and ties in with what could happen during the Scorpio eclipse.
Its aalso going affect certain individuals with a strong wake up call to step way back from abusive people, and keep that third eye open for signs of enlightenment and messages from spirit for needed strength and courage. The age old fight between light and darkness goes on..
This is all to the lead up of Mercury changing direction 9th/10th May depending which country you are in, at 4 degrees Gemini for a Rx that takes hir back to Taurus before s/he goes direct around 2nd June and then re-enters Gemini mid June where s/he will stay until 5th July.
This means the Rx will last through the eclipse so that is going to add yet another twist and makes one wonder what will happen with our communication systems in that time – to mainstream media , social media etc …
Its certainly all connected and new ways of thinking are most definitely on the cards for many of us. There are truly some exciting times ahead but also times of some sudden and even explosive happenings that will come from some very deep and hidden places.
Not to mention the rebirth that is at the root of all of this.
