This New Moon Eclipse will come in with quite an upheaval. It asks us to transform our outer world relations and will trigger a set of transformations that will unfold over the next year.
I want to emphasize that there are a lot of planetary energies at play here. This isn’t the typical Solar eclipse when the moon and sun meet in the same sign. No, this eclipse has an entourage. The Sun and Moon will join Ketu, the south node of the moon and be accompanied by Mercury and Venus. This is a 5 full planetary conjunction, and will occur in the very yogic lunar house of Jyestha Nakshatra.
This Nakshatra (lunar house) marks the ending of the previous forms of relating and the point in which new ways of being emerge. This new way of being is more spiritualized, more embodied. At this unique point within the cosmos there is a lot at play, the primary being that collective consciousness is rising to another level of unity, of spirituality. The process of this spiritualization will occur on multiple levels thanks to the unique party of planets in Scorpio.
This eclipse will ask to see beyond senses, beyond the wheel of wanting.
It is an awakening to merge into oneness through contentment, to see the purpose, passion, and truth lie not in the material manifested world, but through the true self. This is fulfillment.
Spiritualization is the purpose of this moon. It can create detachment and dissatisfaction along the material world and through senses and sensory pleasures. Previous forms of sensory pleasures will fall short, mindfulness is required. Mindfulness around wanting more, wanting a different lifestyle, wanting to define self and status. This will trigger the opposite effect and drive frustrations and discontentment. The intellect is thwarted so thinking, analyzing, and projections of previous mechanisms will falter.
It will drive the self to look inward. Intuition, seeing, understanding and connecting spirituality into the material world will take a deeper level. Seeing how one created their own suffering and fortune will be revealed. To see purpose, and the meaning without applying meaning or definitions is important. There lies an opportunity to become different.
To recreate a new life, not based on material satisfaction but soulful fulfillment.
The Sun-soul is rising and opposite Mars, there will be more pranic energy to lift the Sun-soul self into greater awareness. Know yourself beyond this world. This eclipse will show you beyond illusion, constructs, delusion, and paradigms. It is important to practice Pratyahara (removal of the senses during this time). Name the demons, embrace them, look through fear at what lies hidden behind it all. Integrate what has been condemned, and know the oneness, peace.
This eclipse falls on a unique point on the zodiac wheel in which the dark waters of Kali (goddess) are creating healing, resurrection, and purification. This is Kundalini within the cosmic body, and at this point, pranayama is important as well as chanting. These practices urge us to go into the ethereal and know the wisdom beyond the physical.
Lastly, expect upheavals, expect the unexpected, but KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that life is ALWAYS, and HAS ALWAYS happened for you. Use this lunation to understand and see what lies within you, beyond the senses, beyond the body, beyond the thinking mind. Beyond all of it, you are the creator. Connect with the dark waters, which is to be one, to be everything and nothing. To be a place of contentment and absorption. Surrender, then surrender more. Your greatness is taking new form.
The New moon flow and Meditation, will aid in working with these Kali energies.
