Many of you are experiencing a strange combination of fear and heightened anxiety that began with the penumbral eclipse on February 10, 2017. Eclipses usually signal endings or beginnings and so some of you are in shock as some things, jobs, possessions and relationships have been “taken away.” In the wake of those losses some of you are confused, hurt and in shock. It’s alright. You are not alone. In fact there are more people having the same kinds of experiences. So let go of the idea that these radical changes are happening only to you.
While some astrologers have advised you to focus on more grounding others have recommended that you stay loose and fluid. In my case I have had to ground AND become more flexible depending upon the situation and believe me, there have been several. The most obvious one is the landfall of the tropical storm – Lucifer. I live in the Los Angeles area at the base of the mountains. As the water poured off the mountain and ran down the streets past our tiny cottage in torrents our power and internet flickered off an on like blinking Christmas lights. Outside trees were being uprooted and toppled like match sticks. Inside me and my chihuahua Fifi weathered the storm by candle light and I caught up with some reading.
What I have discovered is that the best way to manage this chaos is to connect with the element of my astrological sign. Each sign of the zodiac is governed by an element.
In my case I am a triple Libra. Libra is governed by the element of air. As the winds outside my window lashed the trees and scattered the rain, I connected with the element of air and put my intent in that element to remove my confusion, doubt and anxiety. Today as the storm has lifted, if only for a few hours, I feel calm, clear and refreshed, like a valley that has had the pollutants in the Air purified by a raging storm. The other air signs are Gemini and Aquarius.
The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces have been experiencing heavy emotional ups and downs. Likewise, if water is featured strongly in your chart you too may be experiencing sudden outbursts of tears or resurfacing emotions that you thought had healed long ago. My advice is to meditate on the image of a calm pool of water. Mastery of the main element connected to you will give you clarity. Remember, the waters in a pond can be murky if the water is stirred, but clear when the water is still and the debris is allowed to sink to the bottom. Allow your emotional, mental and physical “debris” to sink. Meditation is a great way to do that.
The fire signs: Leo, Aries and Sagittarius seem to be experiencing trans-formative incidents of sudden clarity about a situation, freedom from situations that bind them and better health. Allow your fires to burn brightly. Fire gives light or “clarity.” Fire burns away trash or debris. Fire can reignite your life force and give you back the vigor that you thought that you may have lost. Like the mythical phoenix, allow yourself to be reborn as you rise from your own ashes. Be more aware of your solar plexus, which correlates to the element of fire and be aware of what you feel in that chakra. If you are suffering from too much heartburn drink plenty of aloe vera juice and watch your diet. The discomfort will pass.
The earth signs: Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus seem to be experiencing major changes in the material world. I’m not just talking about wealth and prosperity, but your body itself which is made up of the elements of Mother Earth. For you, remember that the Earth is a fertile planet. Whatever you may have lost can bloom again, in a better and more nourishing “soil” if you take better care of your body, mind and spirit which are the fertile grounds from which your dreams and aspirations can grow and bloom. Meditation with crystals, any crystals will replace any uncertainty with security.
