First off...today was a Good Day despite the high energy around us and feeling a higher level of stress than usual. Why was that? Solar Eclipse. So what is a solar eclipse? Text book definition is: the conjunction of the Sun and Moon. This can only happen at a New Moon (this year it happens to be the Chinese New Year). Now this phenomenon has an effect upon the earth's electromagnetic field, which is part of the scientific explanation of the Law of Attraction. Funny how that subject keeps coming around. We as individuals wonder how this cosmic event can effect us. If you were born at or near the degrees associated with todays eclipse (seventeen degrees of Aquarius)I'd be inclined to expect you to pay attention over the next year to the major changes that will happen. In the larger picture related to geography, those places on the planet that can view the eclipse will most likely manifest some government and leadership upset over the next year and possibly for as many years as the eclipse lasted. In our own back yard I'd be very inclined to take notice that our voters chose a Republican candiate to run for office and the Democrats are still on the fence. One might go out on a limb and suggsest that Mr McCain might very well find himself our next president. But let's delve into that further on another day.
Tomorrow after 11am the Aquarius Moon goes off the radar and does not return until just before 9pm. So we must write off another day this week as a No Day. This really cramps our daily-must-do stuff. Friday the moon is in Pisces and although this tends to make us more emotional at least we can accomplish something.
Today for many was Ash Wednesday. Some people practice the act of "giving up" or sacrificing during this time before Easter. Often as children it equates to candy or chocolate (Oh no, never chocolate). Perhaps this needs some rethinking and revising. In truth, a kindness towards another person, possibly a stranger seems more realistic than struggling to avoid a candy bar. Open a door for the person behind you, call an old friend and ask how they are, give a few extra dollars to your favorite charity, say a prayer for someone who is ill, play an act of kindness forward, play it forward more than once...big or small, out loud or to your self...this is an excellent time to be kind.
