Usually i use the term “Eclipse Season” to describe the six or so weeks that usually brings a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse. Then i use “Eclipse Zone” to describe the actual days around it. But this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo (impending) is so batty, it’s an Eclipse Vortex. I literally do not recall an Eclipse Full Moon energy so weird, radically insightful and just stressful.
But it has led to me having some interesting chats with my Druid and the one of the things he said to me is vis a vis the Ancestral Hauntings post from last year. He feels like there is a lot more ancestor energy around in the astral realm this year then ever before. Not recent ancestors, but further back ones, “who lived well and died well.” He said he has been picking up on this since Xmas. And suddenly i twigged; Saturn In Capricorn, the Time God in his home sign, with Pluto also there – how rare is that? Saturn/Capricorn Vibe has many themes but one of them is lineage and ancestors.
There is this sort of “rule” floating about in pagan and new age circles which tries to dictate that people should align with the deities most linked to them ethnically, not try to co-opt the pantheon or elements of a system not theirs by “right” – sort of a magical nationalism or something. Personally, I am ambivalent about this; what if you feel spiritually aligned with – say – Ancient Egyptian energies, as i always have, even if there is zero trace of that heritage in your blood? Does it really matter in the broad cosmic scheme if your incarnation in this life is of whatever nationality or race?
But having said that, the DNA testing does now make it super easy to identify your origins in that way. I once even read an article – or did i just dream this? – that said past existences could be woven into the strands of the DNA double helix. Is there a gene some people have for being magic? And if so could scientists identify it or would they just call it something else? What if neuro-divergency were just the current era’s word for witches, mediums and magicians?
