WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
The first solar eclipse of the year comes in with the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces on February 26th, 2017. We can expect a double dose of this energy as the sun and the new moon are both in the dreamy sign that swims the deepest depths of the subconscious ocean. This energy will also be carried with us for the next 6 months until the end of this year’s eclipse cycle in August 21st, 2017.
When the sun is eclipsed, we can expect the changes occurring are going to be more in our environment than internally within us. Even though the double dose of Pisces is more of a dreamy and introvert sign, the sun brings its qualities to action rather than just in thought and emotion. Do not get carried away with the extreme emotions and changes that occur – allow your reaction to be one of positive action and use this energy to your benefit, rather than being dragged by it.
The important thing to remember is that this is a big start for many of us – the energy from the eclipse is pushing us to let go and surrender so we can flow through the changes it brings into our lives. We can expect our emotions, dreams and mental states of confusion to be on a high during the week leading to the eclipse as we try to find harmony and balance. You can consider it much like the earth shifting its plates and causing destruction, only to settle once the plates find their resting place. The storm is going to be tough, but those who get through it will be rewarded as they step through the gates of the new dimensional realm which offers empowerment to their manifestations and dreams.
Pisces is the dreamer and the most empathic sign of the zodiac. They encompass little bits and pieces of each sign, making them much like a chameleon whom can take any shape when it is called for. They can get along with just about anyone because it is easy for them to walk a mile in their shoes – they don’t just have an overload of compassion that allows them to feel those around them, they can go much deeper than that and understand you like no one else will. With that said, you may tune into others more than usual. This is where those extreme emotions come to play as well – they might not just be yours, and could be a mix of those around you as well, causing even more of an internal imbalance. The simple answer to resolve this dilemma is to protect your energy by practicing shielding exercises.
Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusion, and the God of the Sea, is ruled by Pisces. Within Neptune’s depths lies psychic ability and prophetic dreams. But which are real, and which are imaginary? This is a time when the reality we had once clung to, turns out to be a dream and nothing real at all. You may have been pushing your intuition away, because the logical approach or the fantasy seemed to hold more merit than your gut feelings. This is going to be a tough transition for many as their veils are taken off and the truth is revealed. It is important to practice letting go of the old and to accept the flow of the new.
Do not try to control or manipulate the way things are headed down, as they are going to the direction that aligns with your higher path – even if you don’t like it, you will come to find that near the end of this eclipse cycle, the changes which shook up your world were needed to clear the way for something better.
Pisces might be the biggest dreamer of the zodiac, but what they have in imagination, they lack in action. This sign tends to get stuck in their head and finds more comfort to just fantasize about their dreams coming true than going out to make it happen. So, with those realities being torn apart, they are to shake you up and make you realize that you have the tools to make those dreams a reality. Those blockages or things that you insist are standing in your way may just be a figment of your imagination. The reality, or rather imaginary dream which might at first seem a little alarming as certain foundations you had once depended on are going to be moved away, and you must resettle and reinvent yourself.
Relationships can expect to be in the extreme highs of romanticism, passion, and yes, even shock as masks tend to fall off around the eclipses. Especially being in a double dose of Pisces, you can expect to make realizations that certain things are just not what they had seemed to be. This may be hard, but also very rewarding for some as relationships are going to come closer together, or be torn apart. This is all for the best, as I had said these changes are pushing us towards our higher path, and we all know that the high road is nothing easy, but always the best route to take. You may realize the attachment you had to someone was not healthy and the sense of identity you clung to was not really you at all. Those close friendships or relationships could have been what was limiting your growth all the while. This is where certain breakups become life changers and world shakers.
However, those loving relationships, such as twin soul unions or soul mates will find those highs euphoric. Valentine’s Day may have already passed, but the feeling of romance, love and connection is still running strong for those who are truly meant to be together. Pisces might be ruled by Poseidon, but it is shared with Eros, or better known as Cupid, the love match maker, so in other words, that arrow is still lodged in and influencing your heart in all ways of love.
Setting intentions and preforming ritual magic should be down within 24 hours of the New Moon Solar Eclipse to ensure they get carried with the intense energy cosmic energy. So, dream your dream, the dream you feel deep within your heart and soul, and make it your goal to transform it into reality.
As Jupiter moves into its retrograde position, we start to feel a major slowdown in our productivity, but the wheels in our mind keep turning. We have a big picture in our minds that we can feel so deeply within our heart, but we haven't a clue on how to go about it.
This Leo Lunar Eclipse comes to help, after all, Leo is the superhero of the zodiac! This royal sign is a fixed quality which means they can take what the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra Capricorn) whom are the pioneers to initiate the ideas, and they can transform the spark into a flame that will burn brightly for all to admire. While most moons tend to illuminate hidden emotions, which are tied to our blockages and toxic behaviors; this lunar eclipse is a lot gentler and all about illuminating your strengths and passionate nature.
With the Sun being in Aquarius, and with it being eclipsed over the moon, new pathways or unconventional ideas are forming. A road you might have considered too farfetched or out there suddenly makes sense and it all just comes together. The sun energy from the futuristic minded Aquarius and lunar energy of the royal lion really help those whom are looking for their mission, their passion, or their service to humanity find the answers and roadways they have been looking for. Aquarius is the humanitarian and Leo the King, or Queen, of the Jungle and therefore the animal kingdom. These two energies together can create World Peace as their sole missions are understanding, and protecting. The blood moon is really carving out the masterpiece that was always meant to be you.
The full moon lunar eclipse is all about finding that purpose, that passion and setting it ablaze. While this is great for those starting new chapters, as this will really help put devise a plan that is paved for success. There is a major tendency to overdo it - to overindulge - which could lead to future headaches rather than praises for reaching your goals. Watch what you spend and do not go beyond your means - pamper yourself, but also remember the other responsibilities you must tend do with your money.
Leo is also a very affectionate sign and expresses emotions through being passionate and romantic gestures. So, you best believe those Valentine’s Day plans are going to be out of this world and the romance is going to be a lot like Hollywood. Like I said, Leo does it big, and when it comes to love? Oh, there is no limit to what this sign wouldn't do to prove their love, especially when there is a day right around the corner made specifically to celebrate all that is love! The energy is playful, youthful and all about enjoying yourself to the fullest in bonding with those you love.
Leo does it big, or not at all. This sign is all about creativity, but creativity with a purpose. They want to move people with their presence, not just for the sake of stroking their ego, but because this sign wants to impact people and spark some form of inspiration. As Leo is an alchemist, in turning all it touches into gold by pulling out what makes it so beautiful.
