“The universe is not short on wake-up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button.” Brené Brown
Woe to the slumber of routine.
Restless stirrings spark and flash
unconscious disruption rumble.
Turn around, look again
refocus your lens
… upside down.
Get out of your own way
Invite the fresh, the new, the innovative view,
this unfolding present moment
as it transforms before your eyes.
Synchronicity is not an anomaly.
The visual and the analytical accented with flair,
supercharge the Eclipse Wake Up Call.
May we all be aware.
Improvise with the unexpected,
try a new approach.
Some wrestle with anxiety
as contradictions are illuminated.
“It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.” Adrienne Rich
Twists and turns veer out
of the tiresome ruts and holding patterns.
Fixation is a drain.
Keep the energy moving
and include time out
from the hyperactive, analytical
incessant tech parade.
Bow to the earth,
your animal body’s need
for nourishment and rest.
It’s too easy to disassociate,
to forget and neglect the basics….
Remember what is essential!
“The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?” Jack Kornfield
Solar Eclipse Aquarius: Wake Up Call
February 15, 2018 1:05 pm PT
A Solar Eclipse changes the way we perceive the order of our lives. We see a shadow where we depend on seeing light. We may be startled by our own shadows and try to throw them on someone else! The darkness accentuated by an eclipse can bring a sharp focus of clarity into our field of vision. The infinite unknown must be taken into account. Eclipses are supernatural passageways that accentuate the uncertainty of daily life. The challenge of incorporating streams of new information into a foundation of unconscious beliefs is very stressful. How may we accommodate truth into our lives?
We are in the process of a long-term breakdown and transformation of collective hierarchy. The remnants of the old tenets that we’ve been struggling with are evident in tricky ways. We may find ourselves juggling options and obligations, trying to keep all the balls up in the air. Old stories are repeated in new guises – do we fall into the same trap? The drama is set on both the personal and collective stages.
Each eclipse is not an isolated event. The larger cycles, called the Saros Series, classifies this eclipse in a family that is characterized by an abundance of brilliant ideas. Bring it on! Is it raining bright ideas on your head? I’d like to know! I invite you to leave a comment below. (and make sure to read below for the Bonus Question)
“A change in the collective does not happen until the change happens in the individual. The individuals make up the collective. This is why we are here. We are looking at the collective insanity and seeing how it works, and that is the first step in liberation.” Eckhart Tolle
The New Moon in Aquarius in 2017 was close to the Cross Quarter, midway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. At that time I wrote:
Wake up and meet each day
with possibilities and with choices.
Distill the tumult and disruption,
the fears and confusion,
to the essential values of your heart… read further:
