Mar 8, 2011 – Mardi Gras – Celebrate Clear Intention!

Today is a poignant day for communications.  The DARK MOON conjuncts MERCURY at 8:37 am pdt, then goes Void of Course.  There may be communications about death, changes, or truths that need to be spoken that are about things that don’t work.

We are in the last day of a lunar cycle before a NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE.  MOON is between Taurus and Gemini all day, until moving into GEMINI at 4:56 pm pdt.  An hour later, this waning DARK MOON fresh into GEMINI SQUARES NEPTUNE in PISCES.  This is deeply watery and could feel confusing, or uncomfortable–its a low point emotionally.  We might even feel depressed!  This could be one of the least comfortable days/nights in the year.  So if you are still here, reading this, CELEBRATE!  Even if it doesn’t feel so comfortable, we’ve made it this far and its something to be grateful for and to celebrate, because we (humanity) are in the midst of quite a “rite of passage,” in these next few years and we’re “all in this together.”  We are beginning a process of de-isolating ourselves.  Wherever we’ve been isolating ourselves in our “private suffering,” we’re about to share these parts with others, to receive the responding support.  Its good to meditate on what this isolated part of us is and how we might share it, to open up the isolated part, which causes us to decay in that place at a time like this.

Today is a day for DEEP INNER MAGIC, more than OUTER WORK.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse, on June 1st is at 10 degrees of Gemini.  It is related to our communications, our thoughts, and our brother-sister relations (the people with whom we most think about and communicate with).  The way in which we relate and communicate with each other or even the way in which we “see” each other, is up for DEATH and REBIRTH. Each of us has very deep “eclipse work” on our plate right now and today is a day to sit deeply with what is dying and take the time to receive and consider NEW VISIONS.  Even if we cannot yet see our new world, or even see how we will bring it into form, we must prepare to see it, and prepare to build it–if we haven’t already begun this task, we are called to begin with these three eclipses.  When we focus on our communications for a new world, we streamline our energy to flow in alignment with cosmic forces, and therefore protect ourselves from the incoming forces of Death and Destruction of the old or outdated, at this time.

If we want to initiate the highest sides of this eclipse, we can initiate a lens of gratitude, innocence, trust, light-heartedness, seeking of beauty and empowering others, speaking truth in ways that uplift, rather than critisize.  For example: I can be in paradise and go into a cave and look at a rotting animal and speak “the truth” about how bad the rotting animal is in the cave, or i can turn myself around and look at the beauty and wonder in the waterfall and the bird flying overhead and speak “the truth” about these beauties.  (both are truthful)  It is time for us to become wise enough to constantly choose the bird and the sky over the rotting dead animal in the cave.  It is time to communicate about new forms, new systems, new infrastructures to uphold new ways of living and working, that work for all of us. What is lost or dying needs to be let go of, to make way for the new.

This solar eclipse at 2:03 pm pdt on June 1, is connected with a transformation in how we work, revealed by a trine with SATURN, and a sextile with CHANGE AGENT URANUS.  Our culture’s way of “making a living,” and the way in which we live, are not working.  Our work, related to money and authentic needs versus what we “think” we need to live are up for revision. These next THREE ECLIPSES IN A ROW are going to send our “life’s work,” and LIFE, into a catharsis that will ultimately lead us to a much more integrated and fulfilled life and life’s work, but the journey of getting there may be rocky and filled with disappointments (things being eclipsed in one way or another) before the transformation is complete.  We will need to let go of or change so many of our “unexamined assumptions,” about what we actually need and how we need to live with each other.  We all need to redesign our lives to work better for all of us and these next two months are jumpstartear intention to “hold space for them to come to us,” is the energy of today, as we prepare for the magical lightning power of MERCURY CONJUNCT URANUS wednesday morning. This magical Mercury conjunct Uranus connects our thoughts directly to the invisible world.  This is communications activation and manifestation at its highest potential.  Thoughts words and actions in this time are highly impactful on the future!

Moon is in simple pleasures TAURUS today for Mardi Gras Tuesday!  This earth moon walks toward a MOON TRINE PLUTO late tonight at 12:26 am pst.  MOON SQUARES VENUS in the middle of the night while we are sleeping.  In the dreamtime, we are working through money tension, love tension &/or women-to-women tension.
