Today is the partial solar eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 12:51pm CST, peak at 2:51pm, and conclude at 4:47pm. It will be visible mostly from South America. Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Ketu will be in the sign of Aquarius and nakshatra of Dhanishtha.
The twelve signs correspond to a part of the body, comprising the concrete physical form of life in their totality. Aquarius corresponds to the shanks. The shanks are in between the thighs (Capricorn) and feet (Pisces). It is through the shanks that the power of forward movement, generated by the thighs, is conducted to the feet that connect and move us on stable ground. Aquarius is therefore about becoming secure in our individual expression, because it is only when we are secure in our unique offering to humanity that we can move forward in life. This is why Aquarius is symbolized as the Water-Bearer, the bringer of gifts for the upliftment of humanity. Aquarius is the sign that precedes Pisces, and Pisces is about spiritual connection and understanding. We can only attain the Spiritual (Pisces) by facing the psychological complexes of our humanity (Aquarius). The eclipse will be occurring in the nakshatra of Dhanishtha, which is a Mars-ruled nakshatra symbolized by a female lion. It is a nakshatra of courage and deep universal values, beckoning us to deeply feel what it is to be human, recognizing the spiritual destiny of humankind. Dhanishtha is also a nakshatra of occult knowledge, and during the peak of the eclipse the 8th house cusp will fall in Aquarius. The 8th house is the house of occult knowledge, and so this is a powerful eclipse for the emergence of hidden truths.
Who will be affected by this eclipse? This is a partial solar eclipse, unlike the total solar eclipse of Aug 21, 2017. The eclipse is not casting its shadow on the United States, so it will not affect the United States, but it will affect South America. Regardless of physical location, those who have personal planets (Ascendant, Saturn, Sun, Moon, Atmakaraka) in Aquarius, will feel the effects of this eclipse. This is a positive eclipse just like the lunar eclipse we experienced at the end of January. It is very good for the expansion of creative ideas, insights, and realizations. If you have been stuck or struggling to express your deepest truths, then use this eclipse to summon the courage to creatively manifest your unique talents, gifts, and offerings to humanity. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses--the purpose of becoming aware of our weakness is to more powerfully direct our strengths.
This solar eclipse is revealing something that is otherwise hidden from view, but as it is a Ketu eclipse, it is showing us something we need to let go of rather than something we need to grow into (Rahu). Rahu and Ketu show us our shadow in different ways. Rahu stimulates our insecurities, moving us in the direction of growth and evolution. Ketu is all that we have come from and therefore all that we feel secure in. Ketu becomes our security paradigm, and thereby reveals an even deeper weakness. If we live our life in the familiar and comfortable confines of Ketu, we do not evolve. Ketu shows us what we must release in order to grow in this life, and Rahu shows us what we must embrace. This eclipse is about facing the deeper patterns of our collective psyche and thereby the embrace of a higher potential. With Mercury joining the eclipse, we especially see a need to move beyond an intellectual understanding of life and the world and to develop the higher faculties of faith and intuition.
Lord Dhanvantari, the god of Ayurveda, is an Aquarian symbol. He comes bearing the pot of amrita, the nectar of the gods, made from Lord Vishnu's churning of the ocean. Rahu and Ketu, the lunar nodes, are the forces that churn the ocean of our consciousness (Moon). Riding the currents of their motion, we taste the nectar of life.
“Man is only a brief design in the numberless evolutionary stages of the World. And the individual human being is only a moment, a specimen, a partial realization of Man. The individual is not made for his own sake, but to be a sacrifice toward Man—so that Man may fulfill his evolutionary destiny. And Man is not made for his own sake, but to be a sacrifice toward the ultimate evolutionary process of the World. And the World is not made for its own sake, but to be a sacrifice to the unqualified and eternal Divine”.
