"It’s another new moon: when the magically minded make wishes and astrologers attempt to divine this cycle’s intentions. But fates are personal. Even if a new moon chart could be forced to describe them all, no single astrologer could tell that many stories…"

Trespass2 I always pay attention to what happens to me and how I feel at the time of solar and lunar eclipses. Prophetic, ominous, auspicious or propitious, whatever the adjective, the bottom line is this: Awareness is the golden key for unlocking the mystery, magic and magnificence of eclipses. With awareness, we tap in to both the subtle and obvious, ingest the physical and metaphysical; discern, interpret and intuit.

Last week I had the great good fortune to attend the West End edition of the Talking Gourd at the Livery in downtown Norwood. The featured speaker was Amy Irvine, author of Trespass, the highly acclaimed memoir of a courageous, half-crazed coyote woman “living at the edge of the promised land” – a book of love and loss, longing and belonging in the redrock spires and pink sand washes of southern Utah. Her presentation was focused on her current work-in-progress, Terra Firma, woven together with threads of Mother Earth and Father Sky, evocative dreams and devilish demons, sacred space colliding with uncertain territory. It was a rather mystical experience, for me, the beginning of a shamanistic quest. I could feel it in my bones. The eclipse window opened, and I jumped right in.

Coyotex2 This week, as the energetic essence of the Gemini eclipses emanates throughout the cosmos and giant Jupiter moves from Aries into Taurus, listen with your heart. Hear the message in the wind. Be willing to feel your feelings and embrace what comes – the joy and sorrow, the ups and downs, the darkness and the light. Gaze into the mirror of self-reflection. Alter your perspective, look deeper, see further, explore.  Eclipses are doorways to higher consciousness, and the floodgates are open. In Gemini – the crafty coyote and trickster of the zodiac – we are reminded that there are many points of view and a multitude of realities. What we see depends upon our beliefs, biases, and points of reference. The world turns and our minds spin. Illusions, fantasies; real or unreal? Roll out the magic carpet, pack your wand and begin the quest. Onward Cosmic Coyote!

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19)
Generous giant Jupiter moves from Aries into Taurus this week and won’t return until 2022. This important visit takes place in 12-year cycles and denotes touchstone periods of golden opportunity and growth. Doors close as others open. Guardian angels gather and surround you with light, illuminating the road of wellness and wealth. Stay on the path.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
While the Sun winds its way through air-Gemini and the Bull travels along the practical, realistic path of life and love, an emerging sense of hope drifts through the cosmos. Jovial Jupiter is moving into Taurus for a yearlong stay, serving to awaken, inspire and encourage personal exploration, discovery and enlightenment. Go in the directions that feel good. Enjoy!
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Candles flicker and cakes are cut as happy birthdays celebrate another revolution around the sun. Count your blessings and make those gratitude lists. Guardian angels are flocking to follow your motives and intentions. Jupiter’s move into your solar 12th house presents you with a year for mending fences, connecting with Spirit and cultivating goodness.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Planetary motion and movement during this powerful eclipse week guarantees plenty of expansion and opportunity regarding friendships and fellowships. Get out and make connections with people you respect, admire and want to be like. Seek out good influences and healthy relationships as you look beyond the horizon but live consciously in the present.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Everyone is joking and jostling as gentle giant Jupiter makes a move from fiery Aries into earthy Taurus. White-hot, fast and furious, devil-may-care actions and attitudes are no longer favored or popular. It’s time to change the channel to calm and centered, patient and persevering. This may be a stretch and challenge for the Lion, go for it. Plant flowers, practice yoga.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Professional goals and social status take center stage as the Sun moves in to your solar 10th house of career and achievement. You may also find yourself cleaning up messes or improving the condition of your life and environment. Meanwhile, Jupiter’s encourages a practical, down-to-earth approach. Take it easy and pace yourself. Stay focused and do it right!

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Everyone loves Jupiter and its movement from excitable Aries to tranquil Taurus makes headlines in the celestial news. Expect a shift from a default position of personal anger and outrage to personal acceptance and inner peace. The bottom line: it simply makes sense and feels a whole lot better! Especially regarding other people’s assets and estates!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Celestial information and cosmic messages travel quickly, especially when planets pack their bags and make the move to another sign. Jupiter and Venus change residence this week and it’s an intriguing combo of wit, will and wisdom. Great good fortune comes to those who practice patience, cultivate peace and focus on the happy humor of life and love.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Ruler Jupiter changes signs this week and moves from fire into earth. This translates as a time of realignment and adjustment for the Archer. Take a look at things from an oblique angle or higher perspective. What was hidden from sight can now be seen clearly if you slow down and adjust the lens. Self-discipline and self-examination are allies. Indulge.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Good news filters through the cosmos as you hear that gift-giving Jupiter is moving into fellow earth-sign Taurus. Collect your coins and gather your resources. The upcoming year is one of great creative and artistic potential, when you will be provided with a myriad of opportunity regarding love and life. Goodness is your key to success. Good luck.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)
An expansion of home and family is on the books over the next 12 months, so get ready to go and grow! Whether it’s a real estate sale, a more beneficial living environment or the birth of a baby, chances are you’re in for a bigger plate and
better place to live. Travel to explore options, research locations and expand horizons. Keep the faith.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)
Prepare yourself for a year of increasing curiosity and mental stimulation as Jupiter moves into your solar 3rd house of learning and education. You may find yourself researching spiritually enriching practices and programs of enlightenment. In all cases, the experience, strength and hope of mystics and the wisdom of saints uplift you.
