Solar Eclipse in Pisces


New Moon (Eclipse!) in Pisces

Feb 26th, 8:58 am CST



This eclipse is sounding a clarion call for those with ears to hear:

Sweep clean your hearth, and invite the fire of divine inspiration to grow.    

This last eclipse on the Virgo-Pisces axis (’til 2024) is offering up some “punchlines” to the major lessons of the last couple years  (our eclipses here got started in the spring of 2015), and is an opportunity to awaken to clearer guidance from within.

These are very strange times we’re navigating. The images on the screen are getting weirder and weirder, and it can be overwhelming to sculpt an effective, conscientiously involved action plan.

The Sun, Moon, Neptune, and the South Node are conjunct in Pisces 

In Pisces, the last sign of our zodiac, things are rarely what they seem. External circumstances and internal experiences don’t quite line up. Neptune (the modern ruler of Pisces) brings transcendent gifts  of universal love, unconditional compassion, and felt-sense communion with the Divine. Conversely (and often simultaneously), the shadows of victimhood, rejection, addiction, escapism, and deception come bubbling up to burst our tender magical bubbles.

This eclipse is aligned with the South Node of the Moon (gifts… and baggage from long ago), and although New Moons are times to plant new seeds, this one is asking us to replant some old seeds of divine remembrance.

The reality model that is hoisted upon us today is a grossly secularized one. The myth that science killed the gods (excusing them as aspects of the unconscious mind) is killing us all. Church attendance has been declining steadily for decades, and religion is viewed by many as simply an archaic excuse to avoid reality and empower bigotry.

We are spiritual beings on a soul journey, here with lessons to learn and gifts to share. Maybe we don’t need to resurrect the church, but it’s past time for a spiritual renaissance, and this New Moon is a good time to throw some logs on that fire.

Mars is conjunct with Uranus in Aries, opposite to Jupiter in Libra

This very tight alignment is a revolutionary powder keg.

Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces, and this eclipse is highlighting its influence. Jupiter helps us to weave meaningful stories about these lives, to step back and get grateful about the larger lessons and initiations we’re receiving on these journeys. Libra is the sign of diplomatic connection, and learning to love our neighbors. Jupiter is now calling out a familiar chant with renewed passion: “The people, united, will never be defeated!”

The energies of Mars and Uranus in Aries are being illustrated, on one hand, by a certain orange-hued demagogue who seems to be doing his best to get a civil war started, and on the other hand, by a revolutionary spirit of direct, life-empowering action that is on the rise.

Some very unpredictable and dangerous energies are present in this opposition, so please be extra careful (and courteous) on the road. Tempers are liable to flare up out of nowhere as feelings that have been stuffed down for too long get triggered. Peace doesn’t happen all by itself – be it all over the place.

Set some intentions with this New Moon to generate waves of radical acceptance and healing for those parts of yourself and your personal history that you’re not so fond of (Pisces shows us that there are some icky stickies inside of everybody, and that when they’re stuffed down, they fester). Choose to initiate revolutionary connections galore this month, get out of your comfort zone, and join hands with teammates you maybe haven’t met yet (at least in this lifetime).

Blessed eclipsings to you,


P.S. Pay attention to those dreams, and the poignant symbols that greet you on the path- there’s magic in them thar visions.

P.P.S. If you live in the vicinity of the Twin Cities, come join one of my evolutionary fire-sparking classes that’s starting soon.
