Someone was asking how this could affect any magic done tonight. We have just gone through the eclipse. How are you feeling? Ruby )8(

Rise of the Warrior Princess

I’d like us all to think back to 8 years ago.  To October 2005.  When the last Lunar Eclipse in Aries occurred, within a couple of degrees of today’s spot.

Much has changed in these last 8 years.  The world as we know it has moved on, we as we know ourselves have moved on.  Most of us have changed, most of us have grown, most of us have a number of life experiences under our belts today that make us who we are right here right now – and who we are going to continue to be.  But we are not that same person that we were 8 years ago.

Aries Energy is a champion’s energy.  It’s a pioneer’s energy.  It’s an action-oriented move-forward-and conquer-the-world style energy.

Lunar Eclipse energy is all about reaching culmination points, closure points – and change, often created from within us.  The culmination and illumination comes courtesy of the Full Moon and the change courtesy of the eclipse.  In Lunar Eclipse energy, we are often the change, whether it feels that way or not – usually as a result of a door closing.  Because in order for a new door to open – and emotional growth to occur - often another door needs to close.  Or is closed for us.  

Which circles us back 8 years, to another Lunar Eclipse which occurred oh so close to this point.  That Lunar Eclipse was a North Node Eclipse – so our changes were about looking forward, taking the bit between our teeth – and running with it.  Possibly the Birth Of The Warrior Princess.  

This Lunar Eclipse however is a South Node Eclipse – which suggests that this particular growth phase may now be complete.  The cycle has culminated.  The lessons have been handed out – and have been taken on board.  There has been much growth.  Some pain.  Even loss.  But now we are ready to move on, to drive forward, to forge new paths and to create new cycles.  

It is time for the Rise Of The Warrior Princess.

Full Moons are highly emotional times because our two luminaries stand opposed – the Moon vs the Sun.  Our Soul vs our Ego.  The added intensity of an eclipse has the potential to make this time even more emotional, more powerful – as does the energy behind it all.  Uranus and Pluto square.  Eclipse Ruler Mars in Mercury-ruled Virgo (a placement I referred to earlier as the placement for Generals).  And Mercury, in mutual reception with Mars, stationed retrograde.

The Moon/Sun opposition in this case occurs in the last decan of Aries/Libra – the Me/We Axis.  And in order for any productive, functioning and positive We to occur, Me must be Whole.  Active. Complete. 

A most powerful lunation (feminine) happening in Aries (masculine) – bringing the two halves of us together – the strong, feminine energy in the masculine environ.  

The Rise Of The Warrior Princess.

We will all have different interpretations for this process.  Male energy may approach it differently to female energy.  For men it may be about finding power within their feminine/intuitive side – and recognizing there is no weakness but rather strength from that illumination.  For women, it may be a rise in inner strength, inner drive, a true emotional potency and power.  And liberation of sorts.

Most affected are those with planets/angles/chart points 23-29deg Aries and 24-28 degrees of fellow Cardinal signs Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  Also feeling the potency more acutely will be those with planets/angles/chart points 25-27deg of fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and sextile signs Aquarius and Gemini.

There is some particularly strong feminine energy available right now, culminating with the eclipse in less than an hour.  Strong, driving energy which may feel volcanic at its most eruptive – or simply sublimely powerful.  I will look to recognize this energy, embrace this energy – and run with this energy.  I will look to recognize and appreciate who I was 8 years ago – and I will look to recognize and appreciate how far I’ve come, who and where I am now – and where I am headed.

And I will embrace my Inner Warrior Princess, let her rise, let her shine.  Happy Lunar Eclipse, Sparklers.
