OUR NEW MOON this week marks the start of a lunar cycle that reaches its climax in two weeks with a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse. This means that we enter "eclipse season" this week, a time when life can be especially eventful. We are, in a sense, opening a magical box that contains great treasures. While we may not fully understand the value of all that the box contains, we can be assured that the gifts of eclipse season will be instrumental in moving us forward on our evolutionary journey.
You'll find differing opinions about when eclipse season begins and ends, since it's not an officially defined astrological term. My perspective is that this particular eclipse season begins with this Tuesday's New Moon (since it is part of the lunar cycle that includes an eclipse). It then continues into the next lunar cycle that begins with a Solar Eclipse on June 10, and completes at the regular New Moon on July 9. This means we have a full two months to work with some very potent energies, and to make significant strides forward.
THE SUN AND MOON will align for the New Moon on Tuesday, May 11, at 11:59 a.m. PDT (6:59 p.m. GMT). This is an inspired and creative New Moon...
