Thank you Jamie.
I love your articles. I look at a few different astrology blogs regularly, and your explanations are always my favorite. Maybe you can fix that.
Hello Jamie. This Eclipse was NOT nice. It unearthed much of what was hidden or not quite clearly visible. Now, afterwards, I am left with who lied and is still continually lying without fessing up to anything. There is one central figure in this whole thing. I would hope that he will finally trip up and take big fall.
He has set people against each other -even marriage partners- for his own gain. Divide and conquer. In fact, when reading the intro to this eclipse I thought I had misunderstood the meaning of it. So positive and forwards looking. Here is no forwards until the backwards gets cleared up. As difficult as it may be, try to let go of all past malicious actions.
My birthday was on the 2nd. This star technically belongs to Cancer decan 1 but we are on the cusp here so this star falls in orb to this Solar eclipse. Even though these crabs are so talented and skilled at getting what they want in life, they do have that soft centre and makes them surprisingly vulnerable.

The willpower of the masses are easily swayed by smoke and mirrors at this solar eclipse.
It could make it hard for those touched by this eclipse to resist drugs, alcohol and temptations of escapism.

This is a celebratory life and suggests good karma earned, much as the trine aspect is. If there has been a separation or falling out between partners the Three of Cups can symbolise a happy reunion.
The joy of brightest star Sirius shines through here. The card is associated with multiple marriages or many children. It could also signify a period spent socialising and organising parties. A solar eclipse is a turbocharged New Moon.
Generally, New Moon rituals are perfect for planting new seeds and starting afresh. We are essentially working on the blank canvas of the dark moon where our ideas can gestate in the new moon soil. But with an Eclipse, the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth. Therefore the lunar interrupts the flow of energy and causes disruption. It breaks our habitual behaviour and gives us a kind of cosmic reboot. This makes the unconscious, conscious, like when you become aware that you are dreaming. During an eclipse, like the lucid dream, we get that same sudden feeling of hyperawareness.
We could do anything!! At best, the effect of a solar eclipse can amplify insights gained from a very balanced left and right brain. The Solar eclipse is very good at showing up any imbalances you have.

Hi Marina, Enjoyed your delineation of the solar eclipse. However, conjunctions of the outer planets tend to presage, rather than manifest, immediate change; their aspects following their conjunction trigger events.
I particularly enjoy how you thread the other esoteric arts, such as Tarot and crystals, into your delineations.
