You may very well be inundated with emails these days, from all of us being profoundly zapped by the current Eclipse Zone?! And, with as much grace as I can muster, I thought to describe briefly what has been my almost overwhelming preoccupation these last couple of weeks.
In short, I was adopted as a baby. Long life story, mostly blessed. Can’t complain really. I’m Aquarian, Taurus Rising, Scorpio Moon: and have enjoyed being a magical realist most of my life.
However, I am currently ‘obsessed’ with the notion of my birth family?!? Some sort of radical prospect of being ‘found’?! Fantasies of aristo-parents?!? It’s just all-consuming. Is this to be expected with all the South Node activity? And is it a suitable obsession in an Eclipse Zone?! Is something going to manifest?!?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! The Tarot is replete with indications that this is ‘real’….

Dear Aqua Orchid!
My god, yes. It’s a big zapper of an Eclipse Zone, made more intense by Mars square Neptune. I have the weirdest Mars-Neptune manifestation, that actually made laugh aloud at 4.30am in the emergency ward this morning. #EclipseHumour.
So it’s been a super-volatile eclipse zone for the people in my immediate circles and myself, the sort of drama that you need time/peace/ease to process and which produces vast insights/stuff to think on BUT which allows for no time whatsoever. Highly stressful and to cap it all off, my ‘healing’ swim in the ocean resulted in SEA LICE.
If you have never had these, they are utterly vile. But lying in the emergency ward, waiting for a one of those saint-like cheery e.r docs to administer steroids and coated head to toe in calamine lotion (used since 1500 BC i found out) it occurred to me that this is the most baseline manifestation of Mars square Neptune.
Not only that but I was on the way to E.R, – alone, for various reasons – and thinking/asking ‘where the hell are my spirit guides, when i need them?’ as i was feeling bleak and stressed.
There was a weird gust of wind, like a ozonic breeze from outer planets, with the scent of alien roses and the moon suddenly broke through the clouds. It shone on an apartment building, an old style one with a name inscribed above the front door, temple style.
The name of the building was Lares. So in case you don’t know, that is the name of the Ancient Roman daimons or “guardian deities”. Every house had a shrine to them. So that was interesting.
And so to Aqua Orchid’s question – i don’t think the desire to find birth family all of a sudden is an Eclipse Thing….though the Eclipse amplifies damn near everything. It’s Saturn in Capricorn and that whole activation of lineage, ancestor spirits, earth magic, dragon-lines and well, maybe the Lares.
And as for researching the birth family, the astrology is onside for it and if you are emotionally prepared for such an encounter/the information, why not? Does anyone with experience of this have more informed thoughts on the topic?
Aside from adoption, this Saturn in Capricorn vibe is also bringing up a LOT of issues/discussion around family names – who is called what, which “side” of the family is most influential and all manner of such themes.
