I have felt the rumblings of the eclipse myself this morning and I haven't even been in the path of a tornado. What with the electricity being out at my house for hours, having to have it out with a prepubescent tech support dude at Constant Contact, been to the APPLE store for the 4th time in two days (practically a fate worse than death) to get my cell phone to work and a trip to BEST BUY (another retail nightmare) and Home Depot (could this day get any worse?), negotiating parking lots with SUVS the size of Tyrannus rex and looking at my lawn of dandelions, knowing I cannot operate a lawn mower or a weed whacker as I am notoriously dangerous around any sort of equipment, I feel like I should just go back to bed and call it a day. And then I berate myself for complaining about anything at all what with people's entire lives being wiped out by the wrath of Mother Nature and hearing about more people I know facing serious health issues and all the other things that are happening in the world and what do I have to complain about?
Last night Jon Stewart's Moment of Zen had me bawling my head off. A reporter was talking with an elderly woman outside her tornado- flattened home in Oklahoma. She had no front teeth (probably in a glass next her bed - all of which is gone) and she said she had been calling for her little dog and she knew that dog was in that house. Just that moment the dog peeped out from the wreckage - all puppy cute. The woman turned to the reporter and said that God had answered not one, but two prayers for her - one that she be alive and two that her little dog be alive. In all the devastation of her life she was happy to be alive with her little dog. And I'm over here whining about the details of daily living.
I will take this eclipse time to reboot my own mind and reset priorities to be thankful for every little thing I have and do for to be alive is the greatest gift of all. How I deal with being alive is completely up to me.
This Full Moon in Sagittarius, opposite the Sun in Gemini, shines the incandescent light of the Divine Feminine Full Moon on the thinking, perception, and perspectives your hold as TRUTH. Methinks it time to reconsider every opinion (best to have as few of these as possible - mind your own business and focus on evolving your SELF), every viewpoint, every habitual thought pattern.
Not only is this Full Moon the third in a series of three eclipses but it is also a SUPERMOON. You know how the Moon has an elliptical orbit around the Earth? A SUPERMOON occurs when the Full MOON is as close to the Earth as it can be in that orbit. And you know what that means - more intense effects on the tides, the tectonic plates, and YES! you guessed it - a SUPERMOON has potentially (if you're Moon-affected) a more than usual effect on YOU. I would suggest being EXTRA careful driving and such this Memorial Day weekend as people's minds could most certainly be elsewhere than on the road. I have seen some things in traffic today that made my hair stand up straight!
Use the POWERful TRANSFORMATIONAL impact of this eclipse to re-boot, re-vamp, and upgrade your thinking to a more conscious focus on UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and ACCEPTANCE. Relinquish your need to control and micro-manage. With Neptune in tight square (90 degree angle) to the Full MOON, you are being asked to SURRENDER, to let go of the reigns you are clutching at frantically in your slippery hands.
Use the OPTICAL CALCITE to allow your mind to open to the endless possibilities of your own unlimited potential. Let go of the limited notion that you could even begin to know what is possible for you.
Look through your OPTICAL CALCITE (which kind of looks like glycerin soap). See how it reflects many spectrums of color and see the answers to your questions come to you in a new spectrum of understanding. Ask the crystal to help. And then let it! Let information that you need come to you. Take time to be quiet and listen. You might be surprised at what come through!
