As we continue to remove the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Discarding what doesn't work for the highest good, in order to make room for what does. Don't be surprised to find yourself needing more rest and relishing your breaks now more than usual. These aren't easy times but the reward for the immense efforts we are exerting, are well worth it.
The key is to maintain a balance in everything we do, as we approach the fall equinox directly after this event and yet another eclipse. Keeping an even keel will be the on going theme during this season. Not over doing anything in any way will be extremely important. As well as setting intentions for equilibrium with all of our collective and personal desires and needs.
Since we are sitting at a crossroads with materialism in one hand and higher purpose in the other, with the choice to choose always up for grabs. Especially at this very moment, when both are so important. Finding a middle ground between the two is the only way forward. Since we can't have spirituality in a non material world, for if it was non material we would be spiritual (if you get what I mean?) so that one cannot live without the other. For in essence if this were the case, there would be neither. In other words there would be nothing, and we would be non existent.
Just like the planet Mars. Which has been conjunct Venus for some time, and has just turned direct (Showing us our values). A planet which some say was similar to earth at one point. Was supposedly once a thriving, living, breathing planet and now has no oxygen or water and thus no life.
One of the reasons I believe most Mars placements are more correct in the western horoscope. Since, if we continue on focusing our attention too much on one way of living such as; the material or the opposite, this would be the consequence. Worst case scenario.
On a brighter note, this eclipse is being hemmed by both Jupiter, which is opposed by Neptune, and the north node also opposed by Chiron (the wounded healer). What this is doing, is expanding our awareness of what is illusion and what isn't. As well as, the most challenging part (Since we live in a world where truth is not always so easy to find), exposing the truth when we do find it. When it comes to alternative cures for healing ourselves, as well as others so we can better serve humanity.
With mercury in Virgo its ruling sign, preparing to go retrograde. We should be seeing a lot of changes with the things we do want to continue, for the better.
