Moon Cycle Solar Eclipse Holiday

posted in: Moon cycle | 0

The solar eclipse is a major holiday in the world of moon cycles. And tomorrow is a doozie! Like Christmas or the 4th of July or Thanksgiving. It is most especially a marker of a significant change. The meaning of this is unique to each of us and, like with all concepts about living with the moon cycle, it is a choice to access it and use it.

Moon Cycle Solar Eclipse Holiday Aug 21 2017

I have been through many eclipse experiences. Most of them come and go and it’s like, “Oh, well.” Which means that the eclipse degree and sign on my astrology chart is not significant.

Other times it touches me deeply and profoundly to the point of knowing that my personal world will never be the same. This is one of those eclipses for me.

To get a glimmer of a notion if you are having a major eclipse experience, consider what has been happening in your life since the end of July. The lunar eclipse of Aug 7 may have opened up a particular issue, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual. The lunar eclipse uncovered the shadow of it.

Now, with the solar eclipse Aug 21 it is time for the reset button. For me, this solar eclipse says, “It’s time to put the dark of the Moon shadow on top of the light of the Sun.”

Time to reboot the machine that will manifest acting in a new way related to the issue. You’ll know deep inside of you which question is highlighted now and which activities will be in motion soon. If not, be open to receiving the answer. This attitude of belief allows the information to come.

Change is optional. Grab the opportunity to make a change, or let it go, it is your choice. Some of us manifest the issues in a very physical way and it is not an option to ignore it anymore.

The direction of this personal evolution will take some time to sort out and may even take months to fully understand it. It will be resolved by the next round of eclipses coming in January next year.

For eclipse day Aug 21 and the next week, it is time to just “be.” Allow the reset to happen. It’s big, mysterious, and perhaps unknowable in the grand universal scheme of things. That’s okay. Be gentle with yourself. Allow it to percolate and brew up a whole new you for this coming autumn and winter.

What’s your plan for the Aug 21 solar eclipse?

Totality is at 11:30 am on Monday, August 21, 2017.

Aug 21 2017 Total Solar Eclipse - What is Changing? Riding Moon Cycles

See the NASA maps to find where the total eclipse can be viewed across the US states. I’ll be about 200 miles south of the line, but I still expect a pretty good show.

Eclipses are exciting and don’t happen that often. The last time a total solar eclipse could be viewed all across the center of the US from coast to coast was June 8, 1918.

For a solar eclipse like this one, the lineup is Sun, Moon, and Earth. This can only happen on a New Moon. We are standing on Earth and the Moon comes between us and the Sun.

Sun ———- Moon ———- Earth

Outside —– Inside ———- Me

For moon phase imagery, you might say the Sun is shining a light on our deep Moon issues so we can see them. What is brewing in your universe? Perhaps what has been lurking in the dark on the inside can now be looked at.

Eclipse time is an opportunity to take a perspective on your personal year at the very least. Consider plans and results between these dates:

Feb 2017
Aug 2017
Jan 2018

The common factor of these three times is Change.

What has changed since February? What are the results of the choices made then?

What change now will set up a new result for January?

There are no right or wrong answers, only choices. And opportunities.

Choose to change and experience a new result. Or decide not to change and you may get another chance in a future cycle. Or be forced into a change.

Either way, the ripples will extend from three to six months.

I like to consider what it was like in the past when our Ancestors had no electronics and it was a simpler time. An eclipse would be a momentous event, even scary and ominous.

Viewing an eclipse is a chance to have a sense of the relationship of humans to the greater environment. We live in a whole universe, standing on a blue planet, surrounded by other heavenly bodies. It’s a beautiful and awe-inspiring concept. I hope you make time to enjoy it.

And I’m so glad you stopped by today!

What the Void? It’s the Friday Moon!

posted in: Moon Phases | 0


Making plans for this Friday? Head’s up! It’s a void-of-course moon all day on Friday, July 14, 2017.

What’s a void-of-course? It is the time period when the Moon is traveling between astrological signs. The Moon is not making an aspect to any particular planet.

I mention this because it’s practically all day on Friday for the V/C from 10 am PST to 5p PST.

Along with the moon phases, I watch the V/C moon times carefully. Instead of a negative vibe of what not to do, I try to focus on positive activities. There are quite a few that pretty much guarantee a successful transition when the Moon moves along again.

Void-of-Course Moon on Friday July 14, 2017 Riding Moon Cycles

On the job, I’ve always done my best to avoid important assignments and reports during the void-of-course moon. Delay as much as humanly possible for another day. Sometimes delay is not an option if you are not in control of your schedule, but knowing the void-of-course times in advance can help when you do have a choice in the matter. This practice got me through many years of corporate employment with a positive reputation, just by following the moon phases and the V/C whenever I had an opportunity to voice a preference.

Here are activities that I find work well during the V/C – in no particular order. It’s a list of suggestions for the type of day you can schedule. You’ll find me with a full laundry basket on most V/C days.

  • Social time with known friends and no agenda
  • Rest, movies, music
  • Filing, putting things away
  • Routine work activities
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Mending
  • General chores
  • Garden maintenance
  • Routine personal care and pampering
  • Work an ongoing project – no starting, deciding, finishing

Attending to chores and routine maintenance makes for a great start of the next astrological sign because everything is set to go.

I’ve never had an original idea start during a V/C moon that manifested into a success. And I have made lists of them. I make a point of NOT thinking up new ideas. And I love new ideas!

I also make a point of not trying to organize something new or try to throw things out. It’s not a great time for final decisions.

I hope this moon cycle tip works for you this week. I am so glad you stopped by today!
