We are entering a time when new potentials swirl around us and portals materialize to transport us to timelines aligned with our highest dreams and visions. All this is courtesy of the February 15th solar eclipse at 27° Aquarius. Riding on the heels of the January 31st lunar eclipse, this week’s celestial event builds on themes of healing, women’s empowerment, love and relationships, and positive change.
The new moon marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. It is an opportunity that arises every four weeks to wipe the slate clean and begin anew. Solar eclipses are turbocharged new moons that cast a profound influence six months into the future. It holds the power to help us break free of old patterns, habits and behaviors and to step into a future we previously only glimpsed in our dreams and visions.
This is a time when intentions and desires unite with the powerful forces of the universe to set new timelines into motion. In order to take full advantage of the energies of this time, be willing to release whatever no longer serves you. Set your intention to see yourself and others clearly, and to allow the divine flow of universal energy to shape events around you. Allowing is important during this time as the universe can bring assistance beyond what you may have imagined. Still and calm your mind and allow the universe to speak to you and reveal the next steps of your journey into an ever more empowered and spiritually enlightened future.
You may find yourself downloading ideas of how to improve your life now. You may travel in your dreams to locations in consciousness where cosmic information is given to you by your guides. Much of what comes to you during this time will center on your spiritual purpose for this lifetime. The assistance you receive will be in proportion to efforts made toward realizing your purpose.
Aspects to this solar eclipse fine tune the energies of the coming six months. This eclipse is very close to Mercury, which brings ideas, communications, educational opportunities and more. All matters related to the intellect enter the mix. If you are a writer this is an excellent time to write a book. Journaling becomes a powerful tool for self- growth and transformation during this time. Just the simple act of writing down your goals and intentions each week can be more powerful than ever before.
Aspects from Jupiter and Uranus bring success through positive change. As much as anything else, this is an eclipse of positive change. Focus your energy on positive change and you’ll receive powerful assistance under the influence of this eclipse. Be prepared to take advantage of opportunities that manifest before you.
This eclipse is also aspected by the asteroid Juno which symbolizes mystical union. Venus in aspect to Saturn brings increased need of companionship. It will be important during this period to be loved by someone who truly sees you. This is a time to forge lasting soul connections. Paradoxically, Neptune also in the mix brings the need to exercise a higher level of discernment with all that comes before you during this time, including the people who enter your life. Neptune can cloud judgment so it’s a time for clear seeing in all matters. This eclipse also conjuncts asteroid Hygeia which brings natural healing into play.
