Sunday’s Annular or “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse (7am PST 26 February)
– the Moon is far enough away from the Planet that it doesn’t appear to be quite big enough to cover the Sun’s disc, leaving the “Ring of Fire” around it –
is all about Clearing Away Obsolete Trances and Abrogating Obsolete Promises. While there may be Power Struggles between our Freedom-Craving Conscious Ego and “our” Change-Resisting Unconscious Identity, the Fulcrum is Decision. Once you make the firm Decision that you’re Choosing Liberation, the Olde Patterns don’t stand a chance.
The 9-Pisces New Moon Eclipse Opposes the Conjunction of asteroid Karma (Obsolete Habits) and dwarf planet Orcus (Making and Breaking Oaths), which Opposition makes a Grand Cross with another Opposition between Asbolus-Veritas (our True Intuition) and the Fixed Star Antares (Obsession).
Once we make the firm Decision, the Obsession is “on our side.” Prior to the Decision, we’re “fighting” the Obsession. We may well find that the Conscious Decision, in Linear Time. follows the Unconscious Shift! Make the Conscious Decision anyway, even if it seems unnecessary, as it then becomes a Conscious Intention – a literal PIAVA. I’ll even wager that your Decision/Intention will help your Hidden Genius emerge, and in the process relieve you of a Life-long Frustration.
The Grand Cross is aided and abetted by a Grand Trine that puts the Eclipse at the head of a Kite. The shoulders of the Kite are Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) and Mnemosyne-Ceres (Remembering the ancient Oaths that created the Unsustainability in your Life).
The Kite has Wings, making it into a Flying Squirrel Configuration. The feet of the Squirrel are Hopi (Respect) and Eurydike (Trust). There’s a picture of a similar Flying Squirrel at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/very-busy-march-31/ . The Flying Squirrel/Grand Cross combination also contains a Diamond Star (which rinses the Difficulty out of the Eclipse-Asbolus-Antares T-Square), making the Eclipse Stronger yet. There’s a picture of a similar Diamond Star at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/portal-2-25/ .
The Eclipse occurs at 9 Degrees of Pisces, and its Embellishments span 7-13 Degrees, which will trigger the planets in those Degrees in your natal chart, and their associated Issues. If Hassles arise, do Remember that this is all about Letting Go. The Hassles are there to remind you that if you are Willing to Let Them Go, it will be much Easier than you imagine it will be, much Easier than you’re used to. Make the Conscious Decision to Let Them Go.
Karma is Dead, and you can prove it to yourself. Instead of “Grasping” your Chronic Bummers with “Oh Shit, there’s that Bummer again!” and “Trusting” the knot in your stomach to Bum you Out for the next month, Consciously Relax your tummy and say “Oh Fabulous, there’s that Olde Obsolete Bummer, Up in my face so I can Stare It Down and Let It Go!!! Yippie!” Then just Change the Subject. Check back in fifteen minutes, and you’ll see that the Bummer was a Paper Tiger, one of those Indonesian Shadow Puppets, not even Real. The Bummer was “just” your Expectation.
