Midwinter 2019 Eclipse Season ~ Fight or Flight
There are two Eclipses we will work with this time around: the annular Solar Eclipse that occurs on Christmas Eve (December 24th) and the Lunar Eclipse on January 10th.
The annular Solar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Capricorn at 8:29pm cdt. Solar Eclipses are especially potent times to align with when we need to break patterns concerning our sense of identity and our thought processes. Solar Eclipses are also the best times to work with highly visible patterns of behavior/thought/response that show up in our daily lives. Given its location within the greater celestial sphere as well as the time of year it is occurring in, a particularly fruitful line of questioning for this solar eclipse has to do with our sense of safety – at every level: physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, economic, intellectual…and the list goes on.
Before we answer the question of whether we fight or fly, we first need to re-visit our basic concept of safety and security and make sure that we are acting on (and reacting to) the most relevant and up to date information. Safety is a theme that comes up for many of us frequently. Some feel that the world we live in is not safe in any manner, others fear for the safety of specific populations (ie, young children or minority populations), still others recognize that they are viewing their sense of safety and security (or lack thereof) through old stories and old attitudes that no longer apply. The sign of Capricorn is deeply concerned with safety and the shadow side of that can be never feeling like we have enough safety and security. We will call upon the potency of this celestial moment to help us get clear on our needs around safety and security and disrupt or eliminate completely any patterns around safety and security that are no longer relevant. Our work with this part of the Midwinter Eclipse Season will culminate in the Fire to Ashes rite.
After working with the solar eclipse we will have a much better sense of when we want to fight versus when we do not. At that point we can turn our attention to the Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer that occurs on January 10th at 1:21pm cdt. Lunar Eclipses are also potent times to break patterns but the kinds of patterns we address here occur in the emotional realm, are often shadowed or not clearly seen, and sometimes arise from our ancestral lineage. For this Lunar Eclipse the aspects are particularly right to consider flights – the flights of fancy that we engage in, the flights that we agree to that take us away from or out of our daily experiences, as well as the magical art of flying and working with fantasy as part of intentional enchantment. For this eclipse we will address patterns of fear and resistance around positive forms of flight while simultaneously looking at where we engage with flight in not helpful or constructive ways. Our Lunar Eclipse work will culminate with the Water to Roots rite.
The Midwinter Eclipse Magic Ceremony Includes:
1.) Invite only aural magic teaching via video/phone to go over the fine points of both eclipses and provide participants with prompts that will support them in creating their petitions for both eclipse rituals.
2.) 2 Eclipse Magic devotional candles blessed, dressed, and set prior to the solar and lunar eclipses respectively.
3.) Fire to Ash rite (for the solar eclipse)
4.) Water to Roots rite (for the lunar eclipse)
What is Eclipse Magic?
In August of 2017 I decided to create a special Eclipse Season Ceremony – it was an experiment where I applied my understanding of eclipses…that eclipses are for breaking patterns to some intentional magic making and I invited five folks to join me for a beta run.
The results have been spectacular.
Of course they have. It makes a ton of sense: eclipses are celestial phenomena that turn the regular cycles and patterns of the heavens on their heads at least for a little while.
This eclipse medicine is unique and can be applied to our own life as well.
So, as I like to do with all successful magic, I want to open this offering up and out to all of you, thus the Eclipse Magic Service is born!
