Astrology & the Solar Eclipse
According to Astrologer Carol Ferris, the upcoming solar eclipse will impact a lot more than just our view of the sun. She stopped by to explain.
What should we be looking for during this time?
An eclipse means it's dark when it should be light: the ancient Chinese said about this, "You can see the pole star at noon." And indeed, we might be able to see the planets Mercury and Jupiter at noon. So: you can see things you don't normally see. In order to look for something in the eclipse, you have to be willing to sit still and plan to look. It's a great time to meditate, to set time aside to contemplate your life, your family's life, to let the set aside time itself suggest things from the non-conscious into the conscious. So looking for means waiting for, allowing.
Will behaviors be changing? Have they already started to change?
We won't experience the event itself dramatically, like BOOM (though some astrologers think one million people crammed into campgrounds in Oregon might be a BOOM). It's already started, so the peak is the few moments of the eclipse itself, the outcome will be another 12 to 18 months following the event.
Seeing the world around us in a different light source is an opportunity to do what?
Light is energy, and the Sun and the Moon, as the Great Luminaries, or Great Lights, are sources of vitality, heat, consciousness and gravity. When the light changes, it's our chance to view things from another perspective, to get out of our own heads and allow something else to enter.
That said, because the Light is changing, it's a great time to CONTEMPLATE WHAT YOU MOST WANT TO CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE AND WHAT YOU'D MOST LIKE TO SEE CHANGED IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU. It won't change overnight, but because the eclipse is happening in the sign Leo, it signifies a change of heart.
