I’m sitting here trying to decipher the rather busy and colourful astrological chart for this early morning’s new-moon-partial-solar-eclipse and I’m just not sure what to say. New moons are the time to start something fresh, so clean your house and make a list of goals. Eclipses are like a super-charged fresh start. That’s what I got so far...
Maybe it’s because I’m approaching my 30s (the initiatory Saturn return in astrology-speak) or maybe it’s because I’m feeling particularly humble but how the hell should I know what is going on? What have I learned in my brief life and studies that can be reasonably and usefully distilled into a little article?
I know what I would like to do: write something that resonates with at least a few people; create something that taps a nerve of truth; share writing that is practical and meaningful; and of course, write something deeper than those numerous, vague, and overly-optimistic new age platitudes.
Based on what I’ve read, effects of eclipses last about 6 months. I haven’t tested this idea yet but my partner and I started a little experiment to do just that.
