(also check out these posts from the weekend for this week's planetary shifts - Mercury into Pisces and Mars into Sagittarius.)
Eclipses are some of the most dramatic means life has to draw our attention to spaces that need to change. They allow us to move from one level to another in some area of our lives very quickly.
This particular Solar Eclipse is as powerful as I've ever seen. We have MANY planets hooking into tomorrow's eclipse (8:45pm EST).
The Sun and Moon at 18 degrees Pisces, Saturn at 16 degrees Sagittarius, Jupiter at 18 degrees Virgo, the North Node at 21 degrees Virgo, the South Node at 21 degrees Pisces, Uranus at 18 degrees Aries, Pluto at 17 degrees Capricorn, Chiron at 20 degrees Pisces, Ceres at 15 degrees Pisces, Pallas at 16 degrees Aquarius and Juno at 15 degrees Scorpio.
Your natal and progressed planets and points from 15-20 degrees will be activated by this.
There are ways we can make this "reset" even more effective and more positive.
We refuse to re-live old woundings and release the ways we self identify as a "victim".
This includes the way we language what has happened to us and the way we language familial pain. We acknowledge the power of those scars and empty spaces as the sacred darkness they are and we work from the space of who they have made us now and not the space of who/what we lost. Even when we tell those old stories it is from this new space. We will cease to attract people and situations that will tear open those hurtful spaces when they are healed and not calling out for attention.
We trust our intuition and our "gut" knowing (if we nourish and heal our physical guts we will be more and more effective with this).
We release our attachment to any absolute beliefs - the more possibilities we are open to, the more doors open to us.
We can do only what is ours to do. We set boundaries - what is ok, what is not ok. We release our desire to "make" things happen or to fix anything. We pass up opportunities to play the martyr and carry loads that are not our loads to carry.
We offer compassion and empathy - (not pity) the highest level of Pisces energy!
People who are always thinking everyone should "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" (and yes, there are times we all need to pull ourselves up!) are usually either 1. people born with bootstraps who cannot imagine what it is like to not have bootstraps or 2. people born without bootstraps who pulled themselves up anyway and think everyone else can, too. It is easier to imagine that everyone else is as powerful as we are than it is to step into our own power and claim what we have actually accomplished!
And if we are having trouble pulling ourselves out of a situation - or grounding our dream in the physical - it could be useful, since the expression is such a part of the collective vernacular and carries so much power - to actually make a pair of boot straps and pull ourselves up.
And, no, of course I have no idea what bootstraps actually are or what this pulling would actually look like! :)

Venus into Pisces at the end of the week (next post) - making us very attractive to our dreams. Remember the things we love, love us back folks and we can dream them right into our lives!
