The Solar Eclipse Sept 13th is at 20º Virgo in Virgo Decan 3
Sacred Prostitutes & Skeptics. Rulers: Mercury & Venus (Taurus Triplicity.)
Deity: Hestia. (Goddess of the hearth.)
A Solar Eclipse is a turbo charged New Moon. Generally new moon rituals are perfect for planting new seeds and starting afresh. We are essentially working on the blank canvas of the dark moon where our ideas can gestate in the new moon soil. But with an Eclipse, the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth therefore interrupting the flow of energy and causing disruption. It breaks our habitual behaviour. I like to think of it as a cosmic reboot. The Moon blots out the solar, left brain energy so the lunar right brain can take over. This makes the unconscious, conscious, like suddenly being aware that you are dreaming. The effect is like a lucid dream. During an eclipse we might get that feeling of sudden, shocking awareness, so we could do anything!! Sometimes this is so awesome that we don’t even know what to do, others even become fearful of their own power. Most of us in lucid dreams however, decide to fly. With this eclipse the flight could be liberating a mind that has been thinking too small.
This is a fantastic Eclipse for sharp minds, researchers, perfectionists and organisers. With Jupiter now in Virgo it could be that great mountains are created from tiny molehills. Or shall the Virgo meek inherit the earth Jesus fashion. This eclipse is opposite the asteroid version of Jesu himself, Chiron, the wounded healer. He died for our sins.. What a guilt trip! Hopefully this eclipse will help us bin that self-flagellation. The big challenge for this Virgo Eclipse is getting both sides of the brain working in balance and with this Mercury ruled eclipse it should be a given. Unfortunately what we have to guard against in our left-brain dominated world, is that we allow the sharp logical side of the mind to take right over and not even for our own benefit! This kind of eclipse can make us prime workers for the Pluto dominators since those touched by it strongly become overly dutiful and self-sacrificial, but with fantastic brains. Just what the power elite prey on. But you have the power, it’s really up to you wether you become a drone for others to profit from or wether you use your tremendous computer brain for yourself and for the greater good.
The Eclipse is on quite a major star Denebola in the tail of Leo the lion. Robson says It gives swift judgment, despair, regrets, public disgrace, misfortune from the elements of nature, and happiness turned to anger, and makes its natives noble, daring, self-controlled, generous and busy with other people’s affairs.” Denebola gives a mixed bag of influences and seems to support the themes already discussed. Elsbeth Ebertin says Denebola has a Uranian nature and…major catastrophes are triggered off by it..[ ]..It could also mean that this star is the cause of very exciting events” Afflicted and with Uranus it is said to cause mental illness. The eclipse is quincunx Uranus, which shows adjustment will be needed for our poor disturbed minds. These are minds that have been fried by too many EMF’s or mass media interference. For very sensitive types, keeping away from screens altogether might be a good thing during this eclipse. For the rest of us, everyone can benefit from an electricity fast on this day due to an overdose of brain-storming. With the volatile energy you might end up having to make do with candles anyhow. Watch out for those electrical storms!
