At this solar eclipse, Neptune squares Gemini's rule, Mercury at 29* Taurus: Two cobblers working at a table. This is a symbol of perspective, which is what this new Moon eclipse is asking us to focus on. Feet symbolize our understanding (implying the experience that comes from knowledge). Shoes represent the containers of our standpoint. Seeing both sides of an issue helps us to "understand where we stand'. It stretches our perspective. With Neptune's square to Mercury, our right-brain, intuitive wisdom comes to the foreground. So watch your dreams, your fantasies, your visions, during this eclipse. They will lead you to a new perspective.
Chiron symbolizes the archetypal energy of healing the wound that leads us to our destiny by bridging the physical and metaphysical realms. All of us have a wound that has driven us on to greater consciousness. With Chiron in Pisces, we are being asked to help our collective wounds that keep us from our spiritual destiny. We can do this by healing our personal wound and discovering our destiny. Chiron turns retrograde on June 8th, at 6*Pisces : A parade of army officers in full dress. This is a symbol of group responsibility. Even advocates of peace can see that the original intention of the warrior spirit was to protect and defend the community. Now is our opportunity to become peaceful warriors as we work to transform our death culture into one of great light and hope and peace.
Mars, Venus and Mercury are still traveling through Taurus, grounding us in the Earth as we make this great change in the group Mind.
Pluto in Capricorn is still squaring Uranus in Aries. This challenging square is still building -- it won't be exact until June 2012, when these two planets of evolution and revolution pick up the 60s energy for the first of 7 squares that will really pull us into the revolution that awaits us.
Pluto at 7* Capricorn is: A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god. This symbol implies that we are ready to see the new vision of our "possible future'. Within each of us is this veiled prophet, waiting for us to tune in and discover what he is seeing.
Uranus at 4* Aries is: Two lovers strolling on a secluded walk. If we are going to engage in our new, archetypal identity, we have to understand its bi-polar nature. There is a new masculine/new feminine energy evolving in our times that our archetypal identity engages so we will have the dynamic energy to bring about a new birth, within ourselves and within our society.
So if this new identity is challenged by our vision, don't deny either one. Rather, walk with the new vision for a while and see what develops.
In the next month, we're going to see a total lunar eclipse on June 15th and another partial solar eclipse on July 1st. This triple series of eclipses represents a process of unfolding, changing our beliefs so we can change the charge of our emotional bodies. First work on knowing, healing and opening your mind to the Cosmic Mind so that at the second solar eclipse, the Cancer new Moon, you can renew your emotional body with the new developing story. More about these eclipses in the next two Cosmic Story newsletters.
We are in what transpersonal psychologist Jean Houston calls "Jump Time', a time of evolution. Don't be "left behind' as we step into the energies that will shape our future here on our beautiful and endangered planet Earth. We each have something unique that we have commissioned ourselves to do. If you haven't discovered your new story, don't you think it's time? I'm here to help.
