In between two eclipses (the next one is on February 15) there sometimes seems to be a lull in the action, or the markets start to do a little flip flop, or something we have been working on just does not seem to be working. That is because we are caught in the ‘shadow’ of the two eclipses. This might be particularly true for those born in the middle of the signs of Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus, or for those people who have a high percentage of those signs in their charts. In these charts, the major areas of our lives are affected–our personal identities, our very close relationships (personal or professional), our families, homes, and our professional lives. These big issues often seem to be the major focus in our lives. However, there are other areas that are being eclipsed that are just as valid–our goals, the friends and community that help us achieve our goals, the way we handle our resources, and the way we take a chance on love, children, and our creative pursuits. These are all the areas we confront as we move into eclipse season.
If it seems dark it really is not, we are just in the room where we find the answers and need to locate the light switch. As soon as the eclipse shadow passes, the light will bring insight. Later this week, Venus enters Pisces, the sign of spirit and the creative process. This happens on Saturday, January 10. The Sun in Aquarius in first quarter aspect to Jupiter allows for setting some private ‘me’ time aside to allow the ideas that are percolating to enter your consciousness.
