We’re in the midst of eclipse season! I pulled the Mystic Rapture card reversed from the Divine Muses Oracle and one of its reversed/shadow messages is about eclipse season reflection. Eclipses can bring change and force us to look at our Shadow. We are being asked to adapt & grow beyond the current perception of ourselves and that of the world.
Eclipses are an obscuration of the sun or moon, and this phenomenon reflects the darker side of our nature—or Shadow. If you are sensitive to energy, this reversed card is suggesting that you take heed during this eclipse season. >>>>>
There are two or three eclipses in every Eclipse Season, which happens twice a year. We’re in the middle of the 1st of the year, and it's a dual eclipse portal with the New Moon Solar Eclipse coming up this Thursday in Gemini. This eclipse season began with the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26th.
Eclipses can really throw us off and make one feel on edge. You might sense the friction in the world during this time or find yourself more easily irritated or impatient. With this Gemini Eclipse, indecision, distractions, gossip, or being stuck in our heads can cast a shadow.
If you’re interested, look at the astrological houses that these eclipses are lighting up in your personal chart to explore and unpack the specifics for you.
In the USA’s chart, this Thursday’s Solar Eclipse is lighting, or should I say darkening, the 7th House of relationships. It’s also the House of projection & open enemies. If you're in the USA, be mindful of the “us vs. them” energies. It can get toxic this week, so you may want to stay out of the fray.
For me, this eclipse is illuminating my 9th House, which publishing is under. I just submitted my final proof for the revised & updated companion guidebook for my 2nd edition Divine Muses Oracle. For the past few weeks, I’ve been rewriting and working to add two entries for the two new cards. I'm so glad to be done with this part of the process! Now waiting for final approval to move forward to print the book as the cards make their way!
Take good care of yourself during this eclipse portal!
