Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report

Oh my oh my eclipse season is back! We usually have “eclipse season” as I like to call it twice a year. This year we have our first set of eclipses in March and then we have another set of them in August and September. But today starts it's off with the new moon in Pisces. More on that later, but for now the rest of the aspects!
The sun in Pisces opposes Jupiter in Virgo at 5:57 AM. Even though this is exact early in the morning it is something we will feel all day long. Call it generosity of spirit, or being confronted with excess, or perhaps optimistic pursuit. However it shows up in your life it is big and it is excessive! Often with oppositions these aspects show up as someone else in our life whom we are confronted with. Like maybe we meet someone who loves to gamble and we and inspired by them and maybe even some of their luck runs off on us. Or maybe we meet someone who is a philanthropist and we are inspired to likewise give. Or maybe we meet a spiritual seeker with whom we resonate and decide to seek spirit on our own as well.
The moon conjoins Neptune which peaks at 6:11 AM. This is spiritual moment, and sometimes, when we are in tune with spiritual things we tend to lose sight of reality. So the trick under an aspect like this is to regain your connection to spiritual things while maintaining some awareness of reality.
The moon makes a square aspect to Saturn which is exact at 4:29 PM. Under this aspect we feel some pressure. We can feel frustrated, or challenged, or just plain overwhelmed. But what is life without challenges?
At 5:55 PM the moon makes a sextile to Pluto which means we are in touch with a deeper sense of emotional support. This is a nice follow up to the last aspect because after the challenge we feel the relief.
The moon opposes Jupiter at 7:47 PM which feels like we are being confronted with too much of something. Too much food. Too much drink. Too much emotion. Too much!
The big deal of the day is a solar eclipse in Pisces which is exact at 8:54 PM. The solar eclipse occurs when the new moon either partially or completely blocks the sun due to the alignment of the earth, moon and sun. In this case the moon is between the earth and sun. New moons are times of power and solar eclipses are times of incredible power. If you look to see what area in your own chart this eclipse is occurring you can see where you personally will be most affected. The eclipse is at 19 degrees Pisces which has the Sabian Symbol of “A Master Instructing His Disciple”. When you think of disciples the most common image is probably of the twelve disciples and their spiritual master, Jesus Christ. But whether you see this as a Christian or you see it in some other way this idea of passing on spiritual enlightenment from master to student is a very important symbol. So the questions to ask are things like What are you teaching? What are you learning? What type of teachings are you involved in passing on through the generations? What is worthy of being passed on? Our values and our philosophy in life are more important that perhaps we always realize and this eclipse will help us to solidify our beliefs, perhaps through a moment of awakening.
After the eclipse the moon is void-of-course until tomorrow at 2:40 PM so you can look at this as a time to re-calibrate after this energy overload.
A good stone to work with today is amethyst which helps us attune to our personal spiritual wisdom.
An essential oil I would recommend today is juniper which helps us resonate with our inner visionary.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
