We’re officially in “eclipse season”!
Eclipses happen in pairs and “eclipse season” begins the two weeks before the first eclipse and ends two weeks after the second.
So what does eclipse season bring? It can be an accelerated time of change, release, letting go, starting anew…
Some astrologers say it’s a “time out of time”… where it feels like a lifetime is packed into a short period or conversely like time stretches out forever.
During this eclipse season, Taylor Schuler, our Weekly Astrological Weather guest, gave us some reflection questions that really hit home for me. She said, “When something is taken away, we have that moment of reckoning…
- Did I appreciate what I had when I had it?
- If everything were to change or end right now, what would I regret?
- How does the answer to that shift how I want to be living my life NOW? “
And I loved her answer when I asked… “Astrologers often refer to the time between eclipses as portals…is that how you think of it?”
She didn’t skip a beat and answered, “It’s not how I think of it, it’s how I FEEL it.”
My love often reflects back to me that I am a “thinker/feeler”… thinking and then feeling. And he is a “feeler/thinker”… feeling first and then thinking.
Taylor’s response made me remember that right now, feeling your way through time is even more important than trying to think your way through. Because it’s exhausting and pointless to try and…
- Figure out situations when you don’t have all of the pieces of the puzzle yet.
- Over-analyze dynamics in your relationships when you’re being asked to just be with what is.
- Overly plan and strategize when the future you’re planning for is in a state of rapid change and reconfiguration.
Being as centered in yourself as possible and focusing “one foot in front of the other” is the way through!
In the Inner Circle, we ask our teaching astrologers to choose a song that perfectly reflects the energy of their assigned Lunar Cycle.
This helps our community FEEL in addition to THINK of the cosmic tides we’re in, since music has a distinct way of touching us beyond our linear thinking.
So I was excited when Taylor chose a song for all of us this week! She said, “If you want to get to the heart of the energies, listen to Desree’s popular song from the 90’s, ‘You Gotta Be’.”
I’m going to link you to that music video here… it can be your background music for the week 😍 Let me know what it elicits for you!
Next year is also marked by some very intense eclipse energies (one that will be visible across the entire United States like the 2017 Great American Eclipse was)…
