This weekend's Solar Eclipse in Virgo opposes Chiron in Pisces and trines Pluto in Capricorn. Also, Mercury in Libra is close to a sextile to Venus in Leo and Jupiter in Virgo builds to an opposition with Neptune in Pisces as we approach next week's shifts of Mercury into retrograde motion as well as Saturn into Sagittarius.
eclipse reminds us of our collective WOUNDS surrounding our perception
of INSIGNIFICANCE in the greater world.The weight of the world feels
HEAVY when we unconsciously EXPECT ourselves to 'make a difference' that
And while we can feel the HEAVINESS and the
pain that this brings up, its important to realize that the purpose of
this eclipse during the last few days of Saturn in Scorpio is to allow
us the opportunity to RELEASE this energy so that we can move forward
toward the activities that SERVE both our souls and the greater world!
Our responsibility with this energy is to ACCEPT that our 'little' part
in the world IS worthy and to actually take STEPS toward our TRUTH
under the assumption that what we DO in the world DOES make a difference
even if we cannot see the RESULTS immediately...
Venus retrograde from early Virgo back into Leo has allowed us to
REevaluate the worthiness of our ROLE in the world with the activities
that we DO on a daily basis. Maybe we don't realize just how much
influence we DO have?
And before Mercury goes retrograde in Libra
next week, we have the opportunity to begin the process of REassessing
the 'roles' that we HAVE played with others and whether these still
serve OUR needs as well...
In childhood, we unconsciously fall
into roles for others based mostly on the FEARS associated with
survival. "If I am not THIS way for others, then I will not be loved or
accepted by them!". It can FEEL as though the WORLD will fall apart if
we choose to discard our old roles when in actuality it is our
insistence on HOLDING onto these roles as our IDENTITY which prevents
our TRUTH from leading the way...and which prevents us from JOINING with
others on a similar soul PATH!
It may be PAINFUL to contemplate
it but our fears that we will have 'nothing to DO' in the world if we
simply ARE who we are CAN be released! And NOW is the time...
we instead FOCUS on our SOUL ROLE in the world rather than on the
perceived role of our EGO and choose to RElease the attachments to BEing
what we perceive others WANT us to be FOR them, then the OPTIONS for
our authentic PARTICIPATION in the world will EXPAND and the people and
partnerships will OPEN with them!
Jupiter in Virgo expands the
TASKS when we release the PAST!..i.e. the past of putting the weight of
the ENTIRE world on our shoulders. And combined with Saturn entering
Sagittarius for the next two years, it is time to 'walk our talk' and
FOCUS on living our truth in EVERY action as our options to do so become
With Mercury in Libra and retrograde for most of
the period from now through the end of October, we will be FACING and
releasing our outdated unconscious 'survival' ROLES and beginning to
MERGE with those souls with whom our TRUE roles can shine forth!
Leading up to Halloween, Mars will stimulate the degree of this eclipse,
followed by Mercury exiting Libra and Mars joining Venus in Virgo in
the first couple days of November. By then, based on our WILLINGNESS
over this period to align our TASKS with our SOULS, we will be JOINING
with others on a similar level as we begin working WITH each other
rather than FOR each other!
So, over this period, if we just
focus on OUR piece of the puzzle, we will NATURALLY and effortlessly
join FORCES with like-minded souls as WE begin making the difference we
had always DREAMED we could make! And, in the process, we will be
HEALING the world...PEACE by PIECE...;)
