We have an eclipse coming up this weekend in Piscis. It's funny because the last year and a half I have been tracking the eclipses - looking specifically at how they touch different points in my natal chart. This would in theory tell us how a specific eclipse will influence our lives - and if it will influence it very strongly. If for example, it aspects one of our main planets, like the Sun, Moon or the Ascendant - it's a big one.
While there have been changes in my life over the past year, especially internal perspectives, I don't feel those shifts corresponded to last year's eclipse themes.
That is not to imply that eclipses don't matter. I have definitely seen and felt the impact of eclipses in my natal chart, specifically that of the two eclipses that happened when I was still in the womb. Our prenatal eclipses are meant to shape our mission in life, and what we have to teach in the world. I started looking into this six months ago when I stumbled across a book called Spiritual Astrology, by Jan Spiller. The theory is that our prenatal eclipses can tell us the gift we have to share with the world, and the gift that that the universe has to give us in return during our life experience.
According to Spiritual Astrology, the treat that the universe has to share with me was shaped by a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. In her book Spiller tells us that the Pisces gift is developing intuition. It is a sensitive, intuitive sign that connects with the other realms. Well, looking at my blog and considering the fact that I used to be very skeptical about all of these intuitive things - I think I am making the most of it!
This weekend's Solar Eclipse is in Piscis - which makes me wonder if it could be the one to connect with me on a personal level, as I am so very engaged with all pursuits Piscean. Stay tuned, eclipses play out over six months so I may be blogging for a while! If you haven't already subscribed, look for the "Email Follow" box on the top right hand side of my blog. Keep your eyes peeled for the confirmation link and be sure to download your gift as well - an introduction to Grounding, Clearing and Shielding ourselves. If this eclipse has a strong influence on us the skills will come in handy (especially grounding) because Pisces intuition is able to perceive it all!
