Daring Visionaries & Star Measurers. Decan Ruler: Mars Deity: Elpis (The Spirit Of Hope) Aspects: None!

“This Solar eclipse is simmering, about to boil over from Pisces as it makes its way towards birthing at the spring equinox of 0º Aries. The collective is bursting with anticipation for the future and impatient because we have been cocooned for far too long.”

New Moon Solar Eclipse MarchThe Solar Eclipse falls on the fixed star Scheat in Pegasus the flying horse. It is also on the anaretic 29th degree. This is a very unstable place because the element is about to change into its very opposite. Pegasus was born from the blood of the decapitated head of Medusa (See notorious Algol). Bellerophon tamed the flying horse and then attempted to ride him up to heaven. Pegasus’s over-ambitious rider fell off before he got to the stars, but it didn’t stop Pegasus getting there.

From this myth comes the Pegasus syndrome “It is unwise to take any situation for granted as the ‘lesser’ person (or, in this case, beast) may be the very one to teach us the much needed lesson in humility. Pegasus is also indicative of a specific mission in life which the inquirer will always find the time and energy to pursue, although the path may be sewn with difficulties and limitations”  The article goes on to say “In poetry, the phrase “My Pegasus will not go this morning” means the author’s brain will not work (lacks inspiration), and “I am mounting my Pegasus” means he’s going to write (he’s becoming inspired).”

Interpretations of the fixed star Scheat itself seems to be associated more with the accident side of the myth. Robson says “It causes extreme misfortune, murder, suicide, and drowning.” [1] The Ebertins say. “Tied up with ‘malefics’, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people, it can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow.” [2].

Scheat Hits The Fan

Solar Eclipse March 2015Now my take on Scheat is that it although it can have a real naive, reckless attitude, this naivety is often a blessing. It gives one the bravado to go into the scary woods with nothing but blind hope and a gut feeling. Often the path to liberating wisdom is laden with booby traps, put there by those who want to keep us chained in ignorance. If we had done the sensible thing, conduct careful research and seen what a minefield the path was, we might never take the journey at all. Any worthwhile quest has an element of risk.

In actual fact, Pegasus inadvertently threw off his rider because he was stung by a gnat sent by Zeus! Maybe this Solar Eclipse on Scheat is telling us we are more likely to reach the stars if we become Pegasus ourselves, rather than riding on someone else’s research and studies. Visionary Pegasus says, question everything, do your own research, be your own scientist. Once you have a true, deep connection with your inner wisdom and solar center, nothing, no religion, no ideology, no–ism and no measly parasite can throw you off your stellar mission.
