Shadows on the path...

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE | NEW MOON in LEO rises as the Queen within takes her throne on the seat of the Heart of Love. 

Divine Feminine energy comes through the veil to awaken humanity to its true power in love.

A new way is calling as the outmoded, short-sighted, repressive ways of the Patriarchy are no longer tolerable or permissible. We the people awaken and new leaders step forth.

Together we rise in consciousness for an inclusive humanity. Together, we cast away the illusion of separatism and step forth to heal the divides within ourselves, our partnerships and our communities.

Each of us has the power to shift and realign with the heart, as we let go, forgive, ask for forgiveness, and move through our collective grief to our seat of personal power within the heart of love.

“The Earth, Moon and Sun line up so well at totality that we’ll get a chance to see the Sun’s corona, it’s outer atmosphere. It will look like a black hole surrounded by iridescent, scintillating, delicate colors.

“This is a chance for all of us to wake up to our unity, and our responsibilities to each other, to Mother Earth and to the future.

“But first we have to be at one with ourselves…”

“This eclipse occurs on one of the four ancient ‘royal’ stars – Regulus, the King. It is the star at the heart of the constellation of Leo.

“For thousands of years, this bright star was in tropical Leo but in 2012, it moved by precession into Virgo, the Virgin. So while it still represents the King, the underlying energy is the Goddess’ love…”

“Because the Full Moon in Aquarius this month was sandwiched between two Leo New Moons, our cosmic instructions want us to bring our sovereignty, power, leadership, gifts and visions into the world.

“We need to learn the right way to use personal power.

“Leo rules the Heart and this eclipse opens the heart of the lion. May our collective masculine energy focus on being warriors of Love and Light, releasing the Leo shadow characteristics of arrogance, self-importance, overweening pride and the need to be right.

“The eclipse’s effect might last from 6 months to over 2 years, so don’t expect a miracle on August 21st. Take the energy in and let it move around you and settle in. The results will come.

“Especially watch what happens on September 3rd, when Mars reaches the eclipse degree. Also, Mercury retrograde will station on the degree of this eclipse, 28* Leo, on September 5th. You might get a hint of what new thing you’ve birthed then…”

“Sabian symbol for the Sun and Moon at 29* Leo is: A Mermaid Emerges From The Ocean Waves Ready For Rebirth In Human Form. Mermaids are magical beings who can navigate the great realm of the Collective Unconscious. Psychologically, they represent a new feeling and energy that arises out of our collective longing for a different life.

“For a mermaid to be reborn in a human form symbolizes the incarnation of that new feeling attuned to the World Soul. A new beginning for the "Divine Feminine".

On a personal level, confusing situations and troubled feelings stirred up by shadow will only arise because they are ready to be cleared. While this may be a difficult period to navigate, if you can steady yourself in the storm through spiritual practice—prayer and meditation are especially potent around this time—you may find yourself feeling much lighter and freer on the other side.

So in class this week we explore the shadows we cast and move through a flow that brings the light! 

See you on the mat folks.

In Vedic astrology, solar eclipses are said to accelerate social evolution, often through agitation, which may present as some kind of crisis or confusion.
