Today there was a Total Solar Eclipse earlier around 8am this morning.
Eclipses usually signal a powerful and even disruptive beginning or end. It’s effects can often be felt for the next 6 months, until the beginning of the next cycle.
This eclipse is conjunct the South Node in Sagittarius. The South Node signifies what we need to move away from, what has been mastered and must be transcended. To continue to engage in a way typified by the South Node is ultimately draining for us, and disempowering.
It is much better for us to move toward the North Node, also called the Node of Destiny.
Sagittarius typically represents the themes of philosophy, religion, and foreign languages or travel. Ruled by Jupiter, it can also mean idealism and expansion.
Gemini, on the other hand, is more about communication, logic, the mind, and our thought processes. It can also be the spoken and written word, as well as our local community, siblings and neighborhood.
This eclipse perfectly encapsulates the themes that have been on my mind in recent weeks.
With the South Node in Sagittarius, I am looking to move away from my decade-long focus on higher learning, philosophy and spiritual ideals.
However, I won’t be abandoning it or leaving it behind completely.
Instead, I will turn my attention toward the North Node in Gemini, and my focus will shift to how I can communicate what I have learned to my community.
I view this eclipse as my opportunity to shift into greater connection with those around me through my writing.
What would you like to shift during this eclipse season and beyond?
