This Solar Eclipse is the first of the year and is going to set the tone and energy for the months ahead. In fact, whatever energy transpires on this Eclipse is likely to create a theme that will last until the next Solar Eclipse on August 21st.
Earlier this month on February 11, we had a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, which was all about endings, letting go and clearing out the past. This energy has still been lingering but will shift as the New Moon Solar Eclipse energy takes over.
If Lunar Eclipses are all about endings, Solar Eclipses are all about new beginnings. Whatever emotions or events were stirred earlier this month are likely to melt away and shift in a new direction as February draws to a close.
You are still transitioning to that better place, but this New Moon is helping to steer you closer as the Universe guides you toward your appropriate destination. Previously, you could not see fit to totally find your way past the hard times the last two to five years, but now your creativity is returning. This is a year to learn, to grow, and to work on new skill sets which will help you stand the test of time and provide a long-term stable base upon which to build.
The New Moon and eclipse arrive together to illuminate the need to let go of old trauma so that painful wounds can be soothed and healed and our energy can focus on creating new, healthy loving experiences.
Pisces is the sign of surrender and release, which means we should try to resist the desire to control and manipulate events and instead breathe deeply with faith that the universe will safely guide our souls on their way.
The overall message during this solar eclipse and New Moon: If we courageously open our hearts and choose love, despite our fears, our past has the chance to heal, and the universe kindly rewards us by offering us more opportunities to give and receive love.
Whatever has been cleared from your life in recent months is now dissipating and the New Moon Solar Eclipse will help you to get an idea of what new chapter lies ahead.
There is a tremendous amount of organizational energy available to you, allowing you to look beyond what was lost in recent years. A solid routine is your best basis for overcoming stress and finding solutions to various issues. Dare to be a free thinker, but keep both feet on the ground while doing it; that is not perhaps an easy task, but you can do it. There will be choices available opening up before your eyes; rise up, look around, and proceed with care toward the future
For this reason, the Solar Eclipse is the perfect time to start writing down your hopes, dreams and wishes. The energy for manifesting is going to be extremely high at this time, so definitely use this to your advantage.
It is recommended that intentions for new beginnings are set within 24 hours of the New Moon so that they can be carried with the momentum of this intensified universal energy.
