Archive for November, 2012

An earlier Dragonsmeet post covered the eclipse of 5/6th May 2012. The forthcoming solar eclipse on the 13th November 2012 is the completion of the 2012 series that many have suggested is linked to the Mayan prophesies for this time.

This eclipse is focused on the southern Pacific arcing from northern Australia, beyond northern Auckland, to its eastern edge, west of La Serena in Chile. This neatly mirrors the arc from 5/6th May, which arched the northern Pacific from Hong Kong via Mount Fuji, Aleutian Islands, Mount Shasta and ending near Texas. Unlike the earlier eclipse, this one is a total eclipse. That is, the shadow of the Moon does fall onto the surface of the Earth.

The energy of this eclipse focuses on deep healing and bringing pain and problems to the surface to be released. The conjunction of the Sun and Moon is close to the North Node of the Moon which emphasises the karmic nature of the change that it possible at this time.

Humanity draws to itself what is needed for its own healing.

Any solar eclipse emphasises the dark/new Moon which itself represents the integration of opposites – past and present; male and female, intellect and emotion; spirituality and the mundane.

Resistance to change is always present, but in the words for the Borg – ‘Resistance is Futile’! With this eclipse in Scorpio, any resistance to change simply delays the inevitable, thereby creating more pain and more suffering.

Other patterns from the astrology show a strong desire to break whatever is stopping progress. There is optimism and courage to move forward into a new start and a fresh chance.

This eclipse is the one that warns of what still needs to be done. It reminds us that whatever our dreams and spiritual desires – we need to put them into practice in our everyday lives so that we can become complete, whole….. so that we are ready!

Mars is also positioned at Galactic Centre (27 Sagittarius), funnelling new ideas and inspiration to filter down into our individual consciousness.

We are not alone.

We are loved.

All is as it should be.

Astrological “Stargate”?

The astrology patterns of this autumn (keeping the science fiction imagery going), shows the methodical activating of the clamps on a sort of “stargate”, something that will create a change of understanding for those who can cope with what they sense, see and feel and who are willing to take a step into the unknown. This eclipse/ Dark Moon is the penultimate shift of energy in the build up towards the solstice.

The activations started with the dark/new Moon of September 2012, when the planet/planetoid Pluto ceased to be in retrograde motion (that is – is going ’direct’), from our point of view.

(In astro-speak,’ retrograde is actually an optical illusion created by the varying orbits of each planet when compared to the Earth. There are differing ideas about how this may affect the energy of that planet. Sometimes it is seen as negative or weakening or diverting energy more inwardly. )

This going ‘direct’ takes the brakes off a planetary energy. So since September 16th, we have been experiencing the energies of Pluto, full on, no-holds barred transformation and change whether we want it or not!

Around this solar eclipse/dark/new Moon, the planet Neptune goes ‘direct’. This gives us the full benefit of all of Neptune’s energies – the inspiration and guidance, illusion and mis-direction.

The final “stargate” clamp is put in place of the next dark/new Moon on the 13th December when Uranus goes ‘direct’. This is the final of the slow-moving, generation planets to be fully released – just a week before the winter solstice. Uranus energies bring the unexpected, sudden  breaking of old patterns, new ideas, fast communication as well as unpredictability and uncertainty.

The dark/new Moon in December in Sagittarius itself indicates rapid expansion outwards with only Pluto in Capricorn’s pragmatism from stopping everything being swept away.  The opening of an astrological “stargate”?

Could it be that the coming dark/new Moon and Solar Eclipse of November 2012 is the 4-week marker, the “get set” prior to the “go” of the winter solstice?

(The 3 outer planets stay ‘direct’ until April 12th 2013, when Pluto goes into retrograde motion once again and the “stargate” closes down.)

Earth Healing

Those who work at the dark/new Moons to help to heal the Earth, the Dragonriders, are needed more than ever to dissipate energy hot spots and to help ease the energy flow around the world.

If you have access to a piece of dolerite/diabase or Preseli Bluestone or you live in an area where there is a lot of dolerite (New Jersey Palisades on the Hudson; Western & central Scotland; Edinburgh (Arthur’s Seat);  Northern England – Whin Sill; Pembrokeshire, Wales; Deccan in India; Curacao, Venezuela; Western Australian; Karoo South Africa; Tasmania) – please link into it when you meditate on the Earth on the dark/new Moons.

(Remember, though to absorb the stones energy to help heal yourself first, before allowing the energy to expand outwards to the Earth, other people and places.)
