Here comes the New Moon in Gemini and the Annular Eclipse of the Sun of this year, the Total Eclipse will be on November 13 in the sign of Scorpio. Here is the chart of the area where it will be best seen across the Pacific Ocean.
The solar eclipse is an extra powerful new moon, when for the period of time that the eclipse lasts, the Moon blocks the Sun’s energy for us on Earth. These electromagnetic, ultra-violet, infra-red waves, etc given out by the Sun, are blocked by the moon. We remember that the New Moon means the beginning of something, of a project, a friendship, a job, a situation that arises from something that ends. What starts with this new moon will culminate at the full moon of June 4th, which will be a partial eclipse of the Moon.When there is an eclipse, whatever is happening at the time of the new moon, seems to have black clouds hovering over it, that make us fear the outcome. This eclipse ccurs in the 0 degree of Gemini, the sign of the twins, the sign of duality, the sign that learns its lessons through to finding a sense of self, again and again, by dealing with the opposite, with its inner twin, with the other side of himself.
We already know that eclipses are formed when the lunación (full or new moon) occurs few degrees of the Lunar nodes. In this case the Sun and the Moon are next to the South or descending node and form a square to Neptune in Pisces and suddenly mysticism flows, and even those who do not believe in anything mystical, will secretly wonder: “What if?” When academic knowledge fails us, we trust our intuition. Science is always going behind the intuition. Even scientists before making their equations have an intuitive vision, which leads them to investigate. We know much more instinctively than academically, albeit sometimes difficult to formulate this ancestral knowledge. These are the moments where other types of intelligence take dominance, when we realize that academic intelligence is only one part of our brain and that there is much more wisdom within us or neurones conexions than we can understand.
In this new moon, the Sun and the Moon makes a conjunction to the Pleiades (seven sisters or seven mothers of the world), that are about 28 degrees Taurus. This star formation known to many ancient cultures and that have enriched the mythology of many of them and many temples seem to be aligned towards them, as the pyramid of Giza, the Parthenon, and others, invite us to meditate on our connection with other worlds. Throughout history, many people have believed to “come or descend” from the Pleiadians, the inhabitants of the Pleiades. Meediums like Barbara Marciniak, say they receive messages of these beings, which speak to us of our origins in other universes. Preston B Nichols, has written about his experience in the Pleiades after having been taken there and having been “instructed” in concepts that our world is far from understanding, according to him. I want to clarify at this point, that I have no knowledge of any of this claims, and I am merely inviting you to meditate on the possibility of realities beyond our perception, which we all know is so limited. Unfortunately, we only have a vision more than limited from where we are and it is impossible to understand the universe intellectually, so we often have to rely on intuition to understand truths beyond our physical perception and our scientific understanding, by our space limitation.
Mercury and Jupiter are part of this lineup at the last degrees of Taurus, and if we follow the meaning of these two planets we connect with the possibility of expanding our minds beyond the known horizons, because that is what Júpiter does. He invites us to leave the “neighborhood”, to venture beyond our culture and this is why in the first Jupiter return at 12 years old and the second return of this planet aged 24, many of us venture to other countries, other cultures, that will help us in the process of des – identifying ourselves of our own culture, in order to become individuals and cease to be the cultural puppets that we are. In fact in each return of Jupiter we move one way or another and enrich our perception beyond our cultural, religious, familiar limits.
Venus in its retrograde motion, which begins the 16th, 4 days before the eclipse, continues in trine to Saturn, and old issues in our relations have the opportunity of resolution. It is possible to recall old stories of love and wonder what would have happened if we hadn’t given up so easily and worked harder at them, rather than breaking them. Realizing that it was not the relationship, but our own need to escape from the boredom of ourselves. At the end of the day, we always ended up learning, that it was not the other’s fault, not even the relationship’s fault, but instead we were bored with ourselves. Often, the fear to recognize, that we are humans and not gods is difficult to bear.
