Today is a Leo New Moon and a total solar eclipse! Here in Maine, we won’t see the sun totally obscured by the moon, but it will appear partially hidden, and the powerful energies will be affecting us just the same. In astrology and mythology, the moon represents the feminine archetype and emotional truth, while the sun symbolizes the masculine archetype, the ego, and the sources from which we draw our power to take action. This eclipse and lunation is call to creation of a more perfect union between these aspects of ourselves and our society. Eclipses signify shifts, completions, and releasing as well as new beginnings. If you feel like you’re losing your grasp on something, consider whether it might be best for you to let it go. Whatever sparks today will continue to smolder and spread for the next 6 months. Even if there’s nothing physically moving or changing for you today, pay attention to inklings and ideas, just take the energy in and let it settle within you. Hold high in your consciousness the question of what would make your head and heart work more powerfully in tandem, and make note of whatever answers come. It may be helpful to write down any and all ideas, no matter how far-fetched they seem. As the moon’s movement makes us see the sun in a new and different way, it’s likely that your perspective on something pressing is going to change today, too. <3
