What do we do with an “uncommon eclipse that doesn’t happen for another billion years?” What can we do with such a thing? What powers, what transfigurations? What losses? What will be found, rediscovered, or pulled out of a deeply hidden closet once we’ve lost everything else but what needs to emerge?
Eclipses are doorways and openings to the Great Mysteries : [ Death, Birth and Resurrection]. While Jesus Christ had quite a display of birth, death and resurrection–going down in the history books, eclipses are times when those great mysterious processes are open to all of us.Each of us is offered a key of transfiguration at this time. A key to a kind of death and rebirth that is something “we’ve all been waiting for.”
What HAVE we all been waiting for? I know what I have been waiting for on some level, . . . . for an opportunity to truly be myself, to stop being afraid of everything everyone thinks, and accept myself so much that there is no pain anymore from other’s projections. I’d like to be so free, and so “me,” that I’m invincible to critique, and incorrect projection, because I’m just living such a pure divine truth, that it emanates light, resonates truth, and walks with the “keys to the kingdom” in hand.
I’m ready to enter the “Kingdom of Heaven,” meaning I am free of suffering, I’m dancing in grace, and I feel I can put hands and feet in Mother Earth and celebrate her flowers, trees and creatures in joy and balanced living. I’m ready for this shift from anxiety, defensiveness, and a feeling of “never enough,” to rest. (once and for all). In its place I’m re-membering a garden of grace in my heart, filled with flowering solutions and abundant openings of seed pods at just the right time, for abundance to return, in just the right time.
As we have been crossing the desert of URANUS SQUARE PLUTO and its tests of soul, losses of material things, and shifts of perspective, even all new friends–we are coming to the end of that planetary tight spot of about five years!
This ECLIPSE is like a point of Resurrection, from the Slow Death of the old self over the last five years. The old self has been dying for a while now. This is the final day. This is a good death day–the best kind! Its the day when all that we don’t need in the new self, the New Earth self, is lost, released, and unwound from our mind, heart and spirit.
There are often “messages,” within the mythic story of the eclipse and where is there a direct path of the eclipse passing over? A town called “Little Egypt.” What this might mean will ring a bell for anyone who might have ancient Egyptian rites of passage unfolding at this time. These are egg-breaking times of becoming the full soul expressions we were seeded as.
What can we do to be conscious about the power of this doorway of transfiguration? I’ve been considering this as I whirl around with wolves for the last week. Been thinkin on the best use of this energy as I observe it building and emerging in my field of energy awareness. . .
Great Spirit, (insert your spiritual tradition here)–
Please take my old self. All of my fear. Every shred, as I’ve felt every pocket of fear arising even today, so in this dark, last day, purify me of my deepest most annoying fears that plague me repeatedly from my unconscious. These insidious doubts and fears, hide in secret unseen corners of my imagination. Today is a day to allow the eclipse to show us the shadows in us and others, to gently, lovingly sweep them out, seen, acknowledged and released in grace. Sometimes they need to arise for us to see “just what is clearing away.” Sometimes we need to feel the most annoying fear, just so that we can see what is clearing away in this powerful death of the old energy doorway.
May we feel the portal open: a fiery solar portal of suction, to all that is unkind, all that doubts our brilliance, all that distracts us from our mastery, may we let go of all of it as it is all sucked away! Shrrooooooop! Today !! The dark moon before the Solar Eclipse–we release all the shadow, all the fear, all the doubt, all the dust harboring little demons. Its all rising up to be cleared and seen, healed and buried, sent to the sun, and renewed in its own way in the garden of life here.
Tomorrow in the Solar Eclipse [11:30 am pdt: Monday August 21]–we give birth–to ourselves, and to a new world. What might be the mythic story that is unfolding in this transfiguration, for us and for our world. Each one has a key to transfiguration–a death and birth–a chosen release and uptake of new life.
Participating consciously is the greatest treasure of a power like this. Consciously walking though the time of this next two days. Walking through the transfiguration, letting go and re-membering ancient codes of honor for all of life, ancient powers that resurrect what needs resurrecting.
What can we consciously resurrect that “needs resurrecting?” What did we lose? What is deeper that we REALLY want? Where is it really? Where is its rebirth?
I’ve been watching for the nature of this ECLIPSE PORTAL and it has been shown to me that though as always there can be high levels of anxiety and losses of what was never meant to be in that way, there is grace in this portal. We can trust it. We can trust the benevolence of what is being born at the Solar Eclipse. We can allow this grace power to purify us and carry us into a new incarnation of self where we have new codes of honor.Never again will we dishonor ourselves in the same ways we did before, and that will ripple out to the whole world around us. This is a point of resurrection of holy life and holy light. Where do we need this renewed light in our lives? What is the mythic story of our death and resurrection? Each of us has a beautiful cultivated soul and story. This is the time of our authentic emergence, shedding our cloaks and veils and “revealing ourselves,” bare and filled with glowing light.
Here’s the ASPECT LIST for the grace of today’s death:
MARS SEXTILE JUPITER in the morning [9:42 am pdt]. We are guided in our action. We are meant to rejoice, as we release the old world, and its old ways.
MOON SEXTILE JUPITER: [8:32 pm pdt] the Leo MOON, about to eclipse the SUN tomorrow, is conspiring with the Great Planetary carrier of grace and opening, upliftment and wisdom renewed.
MOON CONJUNCT MARS [8:55 pm] As the MOON (an important player in the eclipse transfiguration–conjuncts mars in the evening–the energy is at the very end of the cycle, unstable. The MARS CONJUNCTION speaks to the possibility of movement in the earth, movement within us and movement of almost everything we anchor to. Its ok to feel funny, things are MOVING! May we allow this movement and change, letting go, and letting the change flow through our earth body.
MOON TRINE SATURN [10:26 pm pdt] is a stabilizing energy–although things are moving and there could be some earth shifts, there is a stabilizing energy arising. The destruction, loss or chaos that may emerge is a precursor to a deeper foundation of a new world coming.
SUN TRINE URANUS: [11:23 pm pdt] what is the secret solar ingredient to this eclipse–using it well? Our own genius. Each of us has a personal genius. Our own genius is calling us to the plate. We are asked to participate in life with our full genius–no holding back!

Author’s Blessing: In this “between lives,” . . . “between worlds” time: May you really dig in and take this transfiguration into your core and ride it like a lion on the earth. Digging your claws deeply into what is yours to be, do and express. Dig in deeply, root into your true version of self. The one you imagine being “when we emerge from the veils,” . . . . now is the time . . . . what is the you that is emerging? I will take this day to fully let go of the things that have irritated me about me, lately and in my soul. Its time to fully let go. this day is a sacred release. Nomatter what else we are doing today–may we allow this sacred time of power today, to purify us of the old. May we pray for this tranfiguration to be gentle upon all creatures and the earth. May we all walk in grace today and from here on, into the course of time we have here, and beyond.
. . . . . .
P.S.: I can do TWO readings today in the dark of moon. If anyone needs a reading, you can use the form on this website or PM me on FB. Two readings on the day of the Solar Eclipse and new birth–if anyone feels you would like starlit guidance in this portal. I love giving readings–it is a higher version of myself when I am giving readings, the self that I honor and the self that is returning in full force and re-formed! Much Love to each one of you!
May your transfiguration be more real and complete, full of your soul, your beauty and your power, than you even thought possible!
