It All Begins In Fire ~ September 27th Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries

It All Begins In Fire

“Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony.” – Heraclitus

On September 27th-28th, 2015 (depending on where you live in the world) there will be a total lunar eclipse in the fire sign of Aries! The visual phenomenon of an eclipse occurs when the Earth hangs in the middle of the radiance and reflection between the Sun and the Moon, casting its own shadow. This specific lunar eclipse will be upon a Super Moon, meaning that this Moon will be closer to the Earth than any other we have seen this year! Make an effort to see it because you will definitely feel it! This event will furiously burn away something which has been impeding you and will usher in a new era of self-awareness. Aries is a fire sign that represents the ignition of consciousness experienced at birth so this is a “rebirth” eclipse in a BIG way!

This event completes this month’s cycle begun on September 13th when a partial solar eclipse occurred in Virgo. It also is the culmination of a much larger cycle, for this Sunday night’s eclipse will be the last in a “tetrad” — referring to four total lunar eclipses that have been occurring in six-month intervals for the last 18 months. Think back over the last year and a half and reflect upon what has been in dynamic flux. Now, consider what can be released from your life with great gusto and intention!

From an astrological point of view, something significant that you have been working on, healing, or bringing into manifestation is about to transform! There will be an end that ushers in new conditions in ‘concord’ with your current evolutionary needs. Look at where 4 degrees Aries is on your natal chart to determine what areas of your life are most likely to be opening up to experiencing a great departure that will lead you to a new era in your life.

This will be a spectacular demonstration of your ability to release an unnecessary condition in your life, making the soil fertile once more for the growth of emotional fulfillment, opportunity, romance, friendship, creativity, finances etc… etc…

This great flourishing will be in an area where you most desire it if you gently allow your own will to mingle with the transformational cycles of nature! 

Sunday’s total lunar eclipse in Aries beautifully exemplifies ancient wisdom of the transformational cycles, for a lunar eclipse represents the power of catalyzing change through opposing energies. “Opposition brings concord…”  Moreover, this eclipse will be in Aries, the first sign in the Zodiac, characterized by the element of cardinal fire associated with the light of consciousness received upon birth and which rejuvenates all life every spring. In the Zodiac, everything begins in fire!

Heraclitus_in_Thomas_Stanley_History_of_Philosophy

Heraclitus of Ephesus was the most influential of the Pre-Socratic philosophers and he based his wisdom upon understanding the nature of transformation and dynamic flux. Heraclitus defined the underlying governance of nature as an “ever-living fire”, whose incessant transformations are the essence of the cycle of life and death.

In his view, fire constitutes and symbolizes the omnipresent processes of nature and the light of intelligence (the “logos”). Therefore, as the source of all life and all thought, fire is what lends us the illumination of self-discovery and transformation! 

So, in the heat of this total eclipse feel yourself burning bright! Ignite that inner spark and courageously blaze a new trail for yourself! You will be on fire!

The Season of Eclipse. September 7th-13th, 2015

September 7th-13th Reading 1. Eight of Wands: Monday/Tuesday 2. The Moon XVIII: Wednesday/ Thursday 3. Last Judgement XX: Friday/Saturday/Sunday

“Departing summer hath assumed

An aspect tenderly illumed,

The gentlest look of spring;

That calls from yonder leafy shade

Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,

A timely carolling.”

–  William Wordsworth, September

September is our time to transmute glory and grief into comfort and joy. There is something inside us all that longs for ‘an eternal summer that shall not fade’*. At least in memory, golden summer days and balmy summer nights are the pinnacle of vivacious experience. September is then the time when the grandiose optimism of summer must fade into its amber evening. Virgo season gives us the motivation to begin to organize our life and prepare for the darkening of the light. During longer evenings, we can begin to better articulate our memories and to properly assess our progress this year. All this introspection comes quickly, and it often carries with it the grief that long good-byes always do. We must release that which can no longer can thrive within us.

Monday, September 7th is Labor Day, which is astrologically highlighted by a brief but illuminating opposition between the Moon in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a grand opportunity to move easily through an emotional obstacle that has been impeding you. Let the shadow come out and lose its power to control you. The eight of wands for the beginning of the week indicates that there is plenty of will and passion to aid you in making a breakthrough. It will happen so naturally that you won’t even realize the strength of the momentum behind you until you’ve been running for quite awhile.attachment

Wednesday and Thursday, September 9th and 10th, are represented by the Moon. In tarot, the Moon has manifold meanings, but they all point to transformation of subconscious materials. Therefore, the middle of the week will support your ability to transmute fear into courage, reticence into confidence. Your dreams will tell you the story of this process in detail if you care to pay extra attention to them. Astrologically speaking, the Moon will be in Leo on both of these days, going conjunct Venus on the 9th and Mars on the 10th. This will lend your subconscious more support in seizing your creative spark and embodying your own ideal of courage. Liberate whatever artistic abilities you usually hide, for there will be something rarefied and poignant to draw from these days. Be receptive, be gentle, and most of all, be cool.

Finally, the 11th-13th shows the Last Judgement card which coincides with the partial solar eclipse which will be at its maximum potency in Los Angeles a little before midnight on the 12th, spilling over into the earlyEclipse_2010_Hao_1 morning hours of the 13th! How do the Last Judgement card and the eclipse correlate? In my mind, this is saying that as the New Moon traverses the Sun, swallowing solar energy in lunar light, the emotional, spiritual, and artistic work that you have done this week will finally bring down the walls inside you that have constrained the free movement of your spirit. This is a moment for setting resounding intentions! During an eclipse, your thoughts and feelings are greatly amplified, so allow them to move you towards positive change and inspiring situations. (do some magic) The energy will be so palpable that you may have a vision or a lucid dream! Or you may have an epiphany which reveals to you how the walls once meant to protect have instead divided you, the towers from which you sought a higher vantage point have now isolated you. These reflections will come in the flurry of dissolution that will liberate you from your former limitations. Beliefs will become a more fluid medium of consciousness. Love will be revealed to be all that you are and you will finally delight in letting summer recede into its blazing finale!IMG_0600
