Remember the Solar Eclipse in Virgo last September? Welcome to the follow-up, little starseeds. This one is a Supermoon – yes, even New Moons qualify – because, according to Richard Nolle’s definition, it occurs “…with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.” This phenomenon is also known as perigee. We’ve arrived at the next major turning point in a series of Virgo-Pisces eclipses that will continue through the year.
Let’s rewind to September. The Virgo eclipse demarcated the beginning of a new life rhythm, but it was clunky, hazy, with celestial disconnect between plans/intentions and reality. But that’s what the Virgo-Pisces polarity is all about: cutting through delusion, listening to intuition and acting accordingly.
Virgo and Pisces handle their problems very differently, so we won’t witness the same unfolding, but instead a continuation, a variation of the theme. The Solar Eclipse in Virgo was at once a brutal wake-up call and also a perfect storm for out-of-control fantasy-brain. I think that, on an individual level, we were all aware of what we needed to do, but then thought, maybe I’ll defy the Universe one more time and see if life magically acquiesces to what I want :)
Why do we do this, why do we ignore gut feelings? Probably because it feels so good to celebrate, to release, to float for awhile, that when we must turn again to self-work it feels like a chore, a letdown. At this point, life has twisted and turned enough that we’re prepared, even eager, to surrender and begin. I think that’s just how it needed to happen, like an unforgiving lesson, so vicious that we stalled until the stars hunted us down and yanked us out of our bubble and into the seething, roiling pot of What Must Be. So here we are, in the pot! There’s no time left to move without direction, following the beat of nothing in particular – the planets have swooped in with galactic force.
Pisces likes to see us in motion, so if you can, get out of the house and go on an adventure. Even if you don’t have the opportunity to physically move about, know that you are being rapidly transported from one level of consciousness to the next, my friends. This is the sweet, sweet end, so gentle and understanding. Relax your grip, here it all comes in vivid form.
It goes without saying that the Supermoon + Solar Eclipse + New Moon combo packs a serious punch. We must enact the highest expression of who we want to be at the beginning of each lunar cycle. But there’s nothing to fear because we’re ready, and have been for awhile, to leave this year behind and start on the next path. Piece by piece, dismantle everything that’s left. You can’t take it with you, lovelies, even if you try, so let it all go. The purpose of any new moon is to clear out and start over. Whatever lingers has little strength left by now. I hope you are proud of yourself for all the work you’ve done and resulting space created. Sit back and watch the new arrivals stream in your soul’s door. YES!
