Right, i have all these of windows open (computer and house), Phoenix Mp3 consults to do, Horoscopes and a thousand emails to answer but i WILL meditate for 20 minutes at the crack of the eclipse in about half an hour – i have it alarmed.

There is nothing better than the existential breakdown of stuck/stagnant old crap followed by a luscious New Moon Eclipse in staunch Taurus for evolutionary people. The Eclipse is square Lilith and in quincunx to Retro-Mars. So if you DO decide to barge back into a past paradigm, just for old time’s sake or because you are high, it won’t feel so great.

Mars may be Retrograde but he is still MARS.Β  Any momentum has to have an actual thought process behind it. Or honed instincts operating above sentiment. And Lilith loathes anything that equates to a surrendering of independence.

This, after all that Zap Zone crap, is like an Independence Moon but with the strength, stability and sensuality of Taurus to draw on.

Coming very soon: Grandmaster Mars – my mp3 rant re the Mars movements of the next six months. This is not an astrology lesson, it’s just me giving you the Mars schizz – pay whatever you want from zero $ upwards – subscriber only. You will want to have your scheduler handy to note the super relevant dates.

Also, something to look forward to – Love Juju in June!

During the eclipse I held the best freestanding handstand of my life. Maybe it was some kind of gravitational pull, but I was solid (for once). After, I meditated briefly and then decided to shift my money out of my bank (that aids fossil fuel developments that may be damaging the great barrier reef) and into a credit union with better ethical credentials. I’m dong the Market Forces thing and it’s sooo inspiring. I think Taurus is in my second house and occupied by Mars so I’m feeling pretty pro-active about making some big changes around money. Also I’m moving… Read more »

Nice. Handstand are pretty hard I totally get how satisfying that would be. Not that I can handstand yet or anything.

As the eclipse started, I fired up my iPhone and opened the live stream from the Slooh Observatory. I immediately saw a wonderful half eclipsed Sun rising over the Antarctic horizon amidst dramatic clouds. I managed to meditate on it for about 10 seconds and then my annoying coworker started pestering me that we’re not supposed to use our personal phones on company time. This is when I set my intention to get a better job with no annoying coworkers.

The one I do it turns out I was doing it wrong, so to do it right it takes about 45 min, still doing twice a day since yesterday, rough but feels good so far

Did it last night, did it this morning, ready for round 3 and 4 and 5! So easy! It’s funny, people have been coming out of the woodwork for months telling me to meditate, and I’ve been all “yeah I knoooooow, whatEVAH.” Thanks,MM, for being so non-Guru-y about it, and thanks to this community. Strength (or motivation) in numbers (or peer pressure)!

Question:
In the extended chart selection in astrodienst there are seemingly two options for Lilith…the check mark box in ‘Additional Objects’ or the search for astro 1181. They give me two different astro positions. Anyone know which is the real Lilith?

Saturnalien
Saturnalien

Use the one in additional objects to get your Dark Moon Lilith position. (1181 will give you the position of an asteroid that has been named Lilith – most astrologers don’t use this one unless they are specifically into asteroids.)

I set intentions, lit some candles and got my meditation on this morning. Great idea MM. Thanks for the idea. I’m already feeling that steadiness, resting in my own personal power. YES!

Sat in meditation, in my car, full torrents of rain washed away all the durm und strom- lovely. We are on EDT so FME was 2AM. Bravo and Brava to all! Just making the intention and effort is awesome. Same time same place tomorrow!!!

So cheesed off. I always try and do a meditation bang on the New Moon, followed by a tarot reading. I’ve been doing this for decades, literally – because it’s so worth it, especially because the cards always point me in the right path and give me great insights and revelations (as does the meditation). Soooo, this time I was exited because a lot of people here were going to do it too. So I put my alarm on to go off an hour before the New Moon – but for the first time ever, it just didn’t go off.… Read more »

Well, you sound like you don’t need much help to achieve your meditation goals! Taurus Moons are yin and peaceful, sleepy warmth sounds an ideal state to have started that moon in.

Holy Moly.. since I missed the Eclipse I had a dream last night. I dreamt that I was at a house and I met someone who mentioned to me a business to go see. I wish I could remember the name but is something like M2 Communications. I went to go see this business that was located at an airport. I had to go through security which was very casual. I got the business location and it turned out to be a bank. So the tellers were there. I explained to them who I was and 2 guys were behind… Read more »

I was having phone sex with someone 5,000 miles away at the exact NM, does that count as meditation? Of sorts? Maybe.

Past few days rearranging everything, new Feng shui, told fantasy boyfriend it was over. As soon as the eclipse happened I realised it is not over, no matter how much I tell myself it is. Next?

Went to bed early but woke up up right as the eclipse was happening (midnight here). 4:30 am and cant sleep, have to be up by 6 anyway..mind racing and waking up from a two week dissociation-heavy spell. Moon in Taurus and eclipse opposite natal Pluto at 9 degrees. Psychic earthquake.

I was asleep during the eclipse but had a lovely dream that I can’t remember now. The eclipse fell right on my Moon in the 12th house and I’ve been getting the message in increasing volume, like an alarm clock ring that builds in intensity: Take good care of yourself, especially of your body, all the little things you do to tend to yourself will result in a shining Qi that you will need later this year, especially in November. Be vibrant, composed, still and shining. Also: don’t give your good will away simply because someone asks for it. Be… Read more »

Aye, I was there bang on the New Moon. First time in ages, tried not to have too high expectations of myself: just show up, sit still and breathe. And that’s what it was. But then the image of the little personality me sweeping the way and a great, big divine foot placing its foot where I’d just been cleaning. Must be my Virgo moon coming out! Very Pythonesque.. Actually, I see a strong way forward as a united being. Very lovely. Looking forward to checking in on an experiential level for 20mins again tonight, then again tomorrow morning. 20… Read more »

I’m such a moron!!!!! I had a huge, 2 days worth of planning, new moon/eclipse = new life, intention setting ritual all set up for the moment of this eclipse – and then totally got the times mixed up!!!! (3 hrs ahead rather than 3 hrs behind Sydney). Dang!!! No wonder – at pretty much the exact moment of the eclipse, I started thinking, “Meh, I don’t know if I really have to do this, all this planning and clarifying of intent…I think it’s pretty much done…” Oh well, I’ll just go ahead with a much less intense version at… Read more »

Perhaps it’s the intention, the energy put into the prep is the fait accompli methinks more than the exact timing?

Yeah, I agree! I often miss the exact time because I’m asleep or whatever but the intention is there.

Stunning symbolism of the sickle moon. LIke a new moon that shows a few days after it’s ‘new’. LIke the symbol of Islam. Interesting the connection, good enough to put on a flag and logo but it belongs to ALL of us.
No-one owns anything i believe which is why i never bought a house, my hippie ideals then about purchasing a piece of land x amount deep & x amount high when land belongs to every one and every specie.

No, they don’t own it, I like the idea of being a caretaker of land. In the wetlands behind our house there was a herd of ibis (looked like a herd of sheep cos they are big and white from a distance) about 300 of them milling around and then about 20 in the trees settling in for the night!

Pi

that’s nice to hear, they are wetland birds by nature (adaptable, but nest and socialise around wetlands/ waterbodies). happy Ibi πŸ™‚

You would have loved it Pi, there are purple swamphens running around there too, and sometimes black swans with cygnets.
I just realised I was out there at the time of the eclipse, but I forgot to look up at the sky for looking at the birds!

Pegs, soz your lumberjack love turned out to be less than. But it inspired me & I saw a hint of my future: an eccentric nature-whispering farmer, hermit lifestyle optional, who is smart & funny & kind & passionate. Listens to trip hop on his ipod while he plows the field & feeds the livestock, kind of guy, with broad shoulders & big hands. He drives the hitch to any horse auction I find, and we always make a hot weekend of it. *licks chops*

(That’s what I’m going to do when I get cashed up: buy up horses at auction on their way to slaughter, & take them home to live out their lives in peace on my farm.)

A preparation for mediation: Breathe in to a count of 10. HOld it for 10, then exhale dynamically, blowing away all problems. Breathe in Breathe out Breathe in the light of the sun Breathe out all negativity Breathe in the aromas of nature Breathe out all stress, all thoughts, & problems Breathe in and let every thing go on the exhale Breathe into your solar plexus and imagine a radiant sun full of life full of energy, now breathe in it’s power. You can do that for each chakra and it’s corresponding emotion-feeling). I called it Honey Comb Streaming a… Read more »

no, always cool to hear and thank u for reminder of what the microcosmic circle is.

I used to do a lot of reading about such things but grew a little over it, so much intangible when my own real world needed attending to. also quite isolating, or if they did were on some guru transit.. what kind of spiritual journey is it if i was always alone? stuff that. i guess that was the long tail end of a neptune-cap moon transit some time ago.

My oath, just saw pix of the annular eclipse on teen. Beautiful. A smile from the sun moon earth. Mars in Virgo women LOVE being busy as bees. Am about to give away my past in the form of some amazing but not worn now….jackets. Leather & Denim with chamois & fish skin (i kid you not-it’s called an Earth Jacket), leather trews (wide leg…lol) to a friend i haven’t connected with for 18 years. Still slowly culling, minimalising in prep for whatever changes i instigate with the mantra ‘do it NOW’. Still working on transformation-transmutation. Am going to die… Read more »

For me the rewards of pluto were only seen after the whole show is over (transit wise!!), and then it was a total revelation. There is always a high price though, and one I can never forget. Many good and exotic plants in my garden were killed all the way to the root along with the noxious weeds. All worth it though, suprisingly.

Meditated and did yoga as intended. Hiked up to a big hill, took my shoes of and soaked up the full glory of the eclipse at its exactness. My intuition feels extra strong and in tune. Love this eclipse energy! Here is to the first lunar cycle of daily meditation πŸ˜€

Meditated for 20 min., 10 min before the NM/eclipse — letting go, then another 10 min. of letting in.

Of course, my mind was busy with scenes from previous lives, my arms itching and whatnot. That is how today was. Tomorrow another day, another mind adventure πŸ™‚

Worlds most crap meditator checking in here. BUT i did it. Felt guilty for being a slacker, sad about those girls in Nigeria, annoyed at hair and uneven pigment on legs – mind would not shut u p.

but as they say in yoga – it is a practice.

i will improve.

does grandmaster mars do extras?

I feel you, but just the fact you’re sitting there and sincerely trying means that you’re making progress, its just not evident straight away sometimes (ok, often). Well done though!!

gently return thoughts to the very basic / simple sensation of your breath , lungs filling or the feeling of breath at nose / lips. that was an instruction i received from a pretty cool meditation teacher once, of course the thoughts wander off again like a horse in search of tasty grass, but each time we regain it calmly, back to base camp (breathing)

Big thanks to whoever wrote of the psychic – cord cutting ritual – I just deposited the stone in my local canyon – pissing down with rain as I walked a circuit through the bush, timed to reach a particularly good spot over the deep water. It was raining so hard I was completely saturated, washed in rain water, it was even my boots last venture as they disintegrated as I walked. And I saw two people the entire hour walk. Both sort of sign-posting the old and the new. Before the stone throwing, a man huddled in the dark,… Read more »
