Welcome to my blog, Spirit Connections! Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and share my posts. For those of you who are new to my web site and social media pages, this is a condensed version of my former Newsletter. I combine astrological patterns with messages from Spirit to receive insight on how we can best navigate these energy shifts. There are additional cards and messages on my Facebook page, click on the link above.
This is an excellent quote I came across that provides insight on the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces today: “Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today, March 8 (or 9th depending on where you live in the world), we have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. The total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia will be able to see a partial eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 23:19 UTC on March 8, 2016, and its maximum point will take place at 01:59 UTC on March 9, 2016. Totality will last for 4 minutes and 9 seconds. (this time and date information is from the web site: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2016-march-9)
Pisces is a water sign of the zodiac and is associated with emotions, psychic abilities, intuition, spirituality, dream states, compassion and charity. This is the first of four eclipses this year. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon stands between the Sun and earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. This is what we typically think of when we use the word "eclipse," with the moon covering the Sun. All eclipses help us to break old patterns that aren't serving us and assist us in making healthy positive changes in our lives. A "Solar Eclipse" emphasizes new beginnings and bring things to light which can help shift our perspective on new beginnings coming into our life. The effects of eclipses can last up to a period of six months. This is a great time to set new intentions based on your true heart desires.
What does this mean for us? That is a huge question for this month because there is so much going on energetically and astrologically, but the word "change" would definitely be a key word for this month. We have two eclipses this month, (the New Moon Solar eclipse today and the Full Moon Lunar eclipse at the end of the month) the Spring Equinox and planetary shifts as well. Their is definitely a "change in the wind" for this month of March. The energies are very powerful and being in the sign of Pisces brings in unconditional love and compassion, creativity, heightened awareness, increased intuition, vivid dreams and profound healing so we can fully align with our life purpose. Pisces, which is a water sign of the zodiac, and is a deep feeling energy. You will be feeling extra sensitive and your emotions will be heightened, so remember to be kind and gentle with yourself and stay away from drama and negativity. Call on Archangel Raphael for any healing you need so you can create room in your heart to receive new love in all forms. Set new intentions based on your true heart desires. Take action steps you feel guided to make but you do not have to rush the process. Go with the flows of this fluid Pisces energy and take one step at a time. As we approach the Spring Equinox on March 19, things will continue to get clearer and you will be ready to take more action steps to manifest your true heart desires.
I was guided to pull a card from the Nature's Whispers oracle deck by Angela Hartfield and artwork by Josephine Wall for the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. The card: #50- Potential Gateway. New beginnings will be coming into your life. All your knowledge, wisdom and experience will assist you in making new decisions about your life path. Take time to contemplate what you really want to do, what are your true heart desires? Notice the shape of the heart within the tree; this is letting you know that your heart holds the answers you are seeking and will lead you through the new potential gateway that will align you with your authenticity. Staying grounded, centered, and connected with Spirit, be at peace knowing all will work out for your highest good. A new gateway is opening-allow Spirit and the angelic realm to guide you and let your love and compassion lead the way so new life energy can begin to grow. “Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
