Eclipse Season: An Intuitive View

by Kay Taylor June 08, 2011 05:10 PM EST

On June 1st we had the first of three eclipses. This one was a solar eclipse, a new Moon with firepower. At 11 degrees of Gemini we could say that it may indicate a trigger for you in whatever area of your chart Gemini energies are located. If it makes a close aspect to a planet the effect will be stronger. The effects are not always immediate; in fact generally they play out within the next ninety days. As Gemini is the sign of communication -- words, thoughts, expression -- there is a likelihood you are making significant decisions now or processing new information that will lead to new ways of thinking about things and that will then lead to forward-moving decisions.

The lunar eclipse on June 15th is at 25 degrees of Sagittarius. The emphasis on mental activity shifts to include releasing beliefs and philosophies that impair the clear decision making and communication process and getting clearer about what's true for you now. This will be occuring as Saturn moving direct is picking up some steam. The lessons we've been reviewing since January now get a forward thrust into practical action and manifest reality.

The final solar eclipse on July 1st is at 10 degrees of Cancer. With this strong initiating force aligned around issues of love  and security, we are ready to move another step toward balancing the deep transformative/awakening energies that have been so powerful over the past year.

Now what if you didn't know about any of this? Perhaps you haven't been all that interested in astrology in the past or lost track of planetary motion or don't have direct experience of the effect of eclipses in your life so don't pay it much attention. What is happening in your life?

These energies affect all of us whether we are aware of them or not, just as the Moon affects the ocean's tides.

If you are interested in thinking of your life in symbols, astrology provides a wonderful expressive language. In the latest eclipse the essence of Self (Sun) blended with the essence of Feeling (Moon) in the flavor of thought (Gemini). If you read keyword descriptions or looked at the placement of Gemini energy in your chart your mind might have been triggered to consider new possibilities of synthesis and integration.

If you didn't know about the eclipse, or hadn't considered the meaning of an eclipse to your life personally, you have still been connected to this powerful force. Intuitively you have been pondering decisions at a new level, considering actions to take, understanding intuitively within that fruition is possible by October.

Life is really beautiful this way. You can approach it with or without the guidance of the stars, but since the energy of the stars are inside all of us, a part of our molecular structure, they are guiding us from within at all times, posing the questions, inviting us to come up with new and creative answers.
