Then the Change Comes 

The Lunar Eclipse occurs at 00:45 GMT on 11th February 2017

Eris, the dwarf planet first discovered in January 2005, has been taking her time to seep into the collective psyche, sometimes wilfully ignored due to her challenging message. She speaks of visceral matters such as violence and revenge.

 With Mars now journeying through Libra and Mercury preparing to turn retrograde in Scorpio at the month end, relationships may be up in the air, challenging us to greater clarity of communication and more penetrating honesty.

This Full Moon could go either way. We may find ourselves mysteriously free of the troubles which have burdened us in recent weeks or increasingly weighed down by them. 

There is much talk of the intense influences around this month. What with a total lunar eclipse on 15th, a Cardinal Grand Cross on 23rd/24th followed by a solar eclipse to round the month off on 28th/29th, yes, there’s plenty to excite! And of course, as with most things in life, these alignments do not just appear out of nowhere on the day in question

The ups and downs of life seem particularly marked these days. One minute we’re on top of the world, the next down in the dumps. One day we see great progress, the next it’s three steps back.

This super new moon in the 7th degree of Virgo – conjunct Venus, Mars & Mercury – is a cleansing moon. Virgo is a deeply healing sign imbued with ancient knowledge often lost to us in favour of modern reductionist approaches to health. 

Neptune retrograde is many things: unity with the divine, flight into unreality, immersion in love, avoidance through self-deception and compassionate repose. It is both our return to sacred source and all we do to avoid the stark terrain we must sometimes cross to get there.

A solar eclipse occurs at a new moon and sees the light of the sun obscured by the moon. Astrologically, the sun reflects our core will and essence. It reveals the qualities that we manifest as we mature (giving it a future-oriented quality) and the path we must walk to step into an independent, unique expression of our being.

Watch out for hyper-sensitivity which could result in over-reactions and misunderstandings today. It doesn’t have to, of course. It could lead to greater insight and deeper understanding of ourselves and other people.
