Transforming Our Luminous Future
The first of three eclipses happens on Thursday, April 25 at 12:57pm at 5°46´ Scorpio. This degree is represented in the Sabian symbols by the following image: "A gold rush tears men away from their native soil." Usually, eclipses come in twos, not in threes. This is a rare cosmic occurrence, ending the corridor we have been in since December 21, 2012. Eclipses are always major turning points. This one is asking us to leave our comfort zone to step into the unknown, which promises us a better life. It is about trust and faith in ourselves and our capacities to create the realities we dream of.
Saturn continues being retrograde this whole month (till July 7) between 10°08´ and 8°03´ Scorpio. The shadow period continues until October 14. The degrees it travels through this month are symbolized in the Sabian symbols by "a dentist at work," "a fellowship supper reunites old comrades," and "a drowning man being rescued." As we are now well past December 21, 2012, three scenarios are apparent: those who have ascended and for whom the worst is behind yet still have much work to do on themselves; those who have ascended and already done their homework and are now rejoicing with others in the same position; and those who were on the edge, who almost didn't make it but are not being left behind. It's a wonderful time of shifting from the dark ages of the Kali Yuga into the golden age of peace and prosperity.
Mercury's shadow period continues until April 6. During the first week of April, we can still remember aspects of ourselves that were forgotten, connect with people we haven't seen in a while, and complete projects that had been collecting dust.
