This week we experienced a spectacular cosmic phenomenon that, by most accounts, was powerful even if it was FELT rather than seen.
For those who chose to view the Eclipse, the gifts of the modern age made that a safe experience that also included bonding with loved ones and strangers. Brilliant! Definitely an experience to define a positive future!
In ‘light’ of our ‘shadows’ that have also surfaced in big ways, the time has come to shift, make change, and grow.
The Eclipse and New Moon were but 2 of many astrological aspects happening this week. The bold and bright players include Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Regulus, Uranus, and now Saturn.
All of these planets give us a compass – a tool that allows us to create and navigate change.

Whether you love astrology for its profound insights like I do or you are a casual reader who enjoys learning, you know this week has been very powerful.
And Saturn agrees with you as he slows down and turns ‘direct’ creating more forward motion step by step. 🙂
This weekend we are being given an opportunity to really look at what we’ve learned over the last 18 months, particularly over the last 5 months. Often, these feel like hard lessons and more likely than not, they’ve been in our faces the last week or so.
You can take what you’ve learned (humble pie included) and apply it to creating the dreams that call to your heart – the ones that were illuminated in a ring of fire around the moon on Monday.
Your birth chart is a fantastic guide! Within in its sacred mandala lies a treasure map that shows you where, when, how, who, and what about your life and its divine unfolding.
- As you continue to feel the transformations, you might consider the following:
- Where am I being guided to make change?
- Where is the need for change blatantly if not painfully obvious?
- What are my heart’s truest and clearest desires?
- What is my first step?
Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way still stands out for me as a powerful connection to the 12-step process as a way of recovering our innate creative selves. Check it out!
And a (modified) reminder:
“God/Goddess/Creator grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.”
