ARIES

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service—paid or volunteer—health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include work, health, service and betterment of yourself and those around you.

In the coming transition, your focus moves from generating a working formula for success to a focus on the human factor. You are finding balance between what you do and who you are. Between what you give to others and what you need to give yourself to take care of yourself. Between the strategies you use to create that balance and the rationale you apply to make that balance work. And between the compromises that close relationships require to make them work and the practical realities that can't be ignored or rationalized away.

As you struggle to balance these issues over the next 4 weeks, you will be laying the ground work for a deeper healing over the coming 6 months. This might sometimes feel like your wings are being clipped. It will be important to decide which parts of your true self are essential and which parts can safely be compromised. But the experience of not being able to entirely be your true self can also bring valuable lessons about balancing your own needs with those of others. You don't have to put yourself in chains, but don't just dismiss it until you understand what you can learn.

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your Full Moon, Aries, because it takes place in your sign! All eyes are on you now – or so it might seem. Is this good or bad? The answer is: Yes. ;-) On one hand, you are in your element during this Full Moon. Your personal needs are in focus. The window of opportunity is open and you can smell the fresh breeze of potential. Other people are there to provide inspiration, creative ideas and support.

On the other hand, you probably can't simply lunge forward in your chosen direction either. Perhaps in order to get the allies you need, you must compromise your actions somewhat. Or maybe you have to be more laid back and genteel than you would like to be, or else risk alienating others close to you.

The trick is to find a balance, not only between your desires and others' preferences, but also between the reality of the situation versus the ideal vision that you are aiming for. Friends, associates, groups and community can be helpful now by helping you stay focused on that vision. And if you feel held back or limited in your own self-expression, you may find that this is a necessity that will actually provide the ballast you need to keep you on track.

 

 

TAURUS

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and "joi de vivre.")

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include creativity, self-expression, identity issues, children and fun.

In the coming transition, your focus begins by searching for the formula that will allow you to be creative (in the broadest sense of the word) in reliable, predictable ways. This process moves toward being able to apply this formula so that you can generate that creativity as you need to, not just when you feel inspired or obligated.

It may sometimes feel like this is all work and no pleasure. Or, you might need to be a bit more finely-tuned and adaptable than you're used to, possibly out of a sense of obligation or pressure from an authority figure (or being one to someone else). This will start to shift soon, and you will be in a stronger position to create a more balanced situation. For example, you be laying the plans for a long-term project, which will start to come together soon. Or, you might be trying to help your children become better at something, which might find a better balance if you start to set the example in your own actions. Remember that whatever way this manifests, this is a process—you don't have to do it all at once.

TAURUS

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, isolation, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

Keeping busy, reaping the rewards and finding success in your work (or whatever you do with your time and energy) is all fine and nice. But what is the purpose behind it? What are you doing it for? What inner fulfilment do you get from what you do? You may feel connected to something greater than yourself – call it inspiration or God or aligning yourself with the natural flow of the Universe. Whatever you call it, you are reaching for a personal connection with that cosmic force. And it is trying to manifest in what you do, what you contribute to the world around you.

In this endeavour, your relationships and interaction with others is very important. It is not enough to simply feel you are plugged into the Universal flow as an individual surrendering to the Cosmic Order. You must also bring this back and anchor it in your connection with others – and specifically in the way you give of yourself to others. This might be in the form of service or work or just trying to help someone with a problem. These interactions might feel like a distraction in some way, but they are in fact the ballast that allows you to reach out to something greater than yourself without losing touch with the rest of the world.

The idea is to find the right balance that will allow you to be alone with yourself (in a good way) AND be active with others. This is part of a healing process you are in, which may affect you physically, spiritually, socially and in your goals.

 

 

GEMINI

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include home, family, support people in your life, and unresolved issues from the past.

In the coming transition, your focus starts with dealing with your need for assistance, care and approval from those who support you (family, caregivers and other allies). This may involve dynamics happening either now or in the past. Your focus will start to shift toward bringing your own identity into balance as a result of the work you do in those other relationships. Your creative imagination may be inspired by your interaction with others. You might find it awkward to let your assertive self-expression loose, but there is something to be learned from keeping forcefulness in a cool harmonizing balance for a while.

It may help to let go of some of your old baggage from the past, especially regarding criticism, perfectionism or "nitpicking." A little optimism and faith will go a long way now, even if that seems to contradict the bigger picture or what seems to be wise in dealing with your situation.

GEMINI

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues and co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large and vision of the future.)

This month's Full Moon suggests you are starting to move forward in your involvement with friends, associates, groups and/or your community. Alternatively, you might be looking at how you want your involvement with these people to evolve in the future. Co-workers, colleagues and allies in your career plans may be a significant part of your focus.

Although you might be heading toward increased involvement with groups and social contacts, it is important for you to balance this with a strong focus on your own creativity and individuality. It might be tempting to think that all you have to do is line up the right people and your momentum will take care of the rest. But your own input is essential to your success. That means you might have to collaborate with others in your creative efforts. And you might also have to compromise your creative vision in order to gain the cooperation necessary to move forward.

This may not be easy, as you're likely in a mood to maintain control over what you are doing. After all, this is your passion we're talking about! It will help to consider the bigger picture – those compromises might be worth it if they bring you closer to the greater vision of what you want to achieve, and looking at it this way could make frustration a little easier to endure. This is about finding balance between yourself and others, not about losing your passion. Don't lose your cool. Be open to surprises and unexpected benefits that open up as a result of this struggle.

 

 

CANCER

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include self-awareness, communication, learning and ideas.

In the coming transition, your focus starts with an exchange of mental energy (ideas, information, "meeting of the minds," planning, etc.). This progresses into a focus on how to focus that mental energy into action that will build a foundation for change and support. For example, you might explore intuitive ways to bring a healing framework to conflicted relationships with your family.

You might become more aware of critical attitudes in your life, which allows you to release old anger or helplessness. This in turn can free you from indecisive paralysis that happens when you try to be so fair or politically correct that none of your options seems to be worth the effort. It will help to trust your intuition and listen to your inner feelings, but also stay grounded and practical in terms of how you interpret these.

CANCER

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

Thinking about making changes to your career? Looking to become more independent about making your own decisions? Hoping to break free of the same-old-same-old? This could be your opportunity, Cancer. You are in a position to strike out on your own path, but remember that autonomy doesn't mean there are no consequences.

As much as you might want to leave the past behind, you still need to establish continuity with the past. And that means you still have to deal with the past and "where you are coming from." This might include childhood conditioning, or relationships with your family, or mobilization of your support network. There could be a strong foundation of support, resources or convenience in these areas that is hard to break away from.

It will help to avoid extremes of reaction and all-or-nothing thinking. It might seem as if your greater vision or personal integrity could be compromised so much that they become unstable. Or, the possibilities you must choose from explode beyond what seems reachable. However, if you look closer you may find that you have empowerment and resources to draw on, through friends and other resource people or through your own connection to your greater vision. Don't sell yourself short, but be careful not to overstretch your credibility either.

 

 

LEO

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include finances, possessions and income, on one level, but also self-worth, blessings and resourcefulness on another level.

In the coming transition, your focus starts by looking for ways to improve and organise "what you have." That includes money, belongings, skills, knowledge and other resources. It also includes the values and strategies that guide your acquisition and use of these resources, as well as your ability to attract whatever else you need to get where you want to go. This focus moves toward being able to use all these assets in your interaction with others, especially in the exchange of information.

What you "have" could eventually be used for barter that can benefit all concerned. For example, you might share your know-how with someone, thus generating good will with them and possibly being able to use this to further your own agenda. But be careful how you do this. There's an edge to this that could be about hidden agendas for the purpose of manipulation, which could backfire in the long run. It is important to find an ethical AND workable balance between "using" your good will with others to manipulate them, versus genuinely aiming to generate a win-win situation that acknowledges and honours everyone's interests.

LEO

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

You may be full of ideas right now, and reaching out to catch the greater implications and meaning behind all those ideas. Or, you might be involved in some intense negotiations with someone, and trying to find a way to fast-track your way to a solution...or possibly wanting to validate your own agenda in an ethical way. Or, perhaps you are stretching your awareness to connect to a more spontaneous experience of spirituality and meaning in life.

Whatever way this is manifesting for you, it is likely to involve interaction with other people and also with the Universe (for want of a better word). Perhaps you feel the urge to become more self-sufficient and autonomous, but you still feel the need for feedback from others to reinforce a positive self-awareness. Or you could be feeling a tug of war between wanting others to help you make a difficult decision, but also knowing what you want and trying to forge ahead with that.

The trick is to find a balance between the extremes. This could mean having to "tame" your independent edge a bit, while also being willing to move away from needing others to give you permission to be yourself. Your sense of adventure will help with this, as will your ability to charm your way through any damage control if your adventuresome side gets too abrupt.

 

 

VIRGO

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your New Moon and Solar Eclipse, Virgo! Although the previous New Moon was also in Virgo, this one initiates a deeper and longer-term process of healing, achievement and problem-solving. This long-term transition will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include your work, health issues and how you bring yourself to these areas. Also finances and relationships are likely to have a role in this journey.

In the coming transition, your focus starts with the work you've been doing on yourself—self-betterment, improving your health, finding ways to "tweak" your methods to create more accurate and finely-tuned results. You've been doing this for the last few weeks already, and this begins a longer-term process of grounding this in your relationships, your style of interaction and how you use your resources to achieve what you're aiming for.

For instance, you might find you are able to take a new ability to create a healing balance in your life (such as work versus pleasure) and use it as a resource for an energy exchange with others. An example of this is might be sharing your knowledge about nutrition or performing a service for others, and in return you might get help from them that moves you forward in your ambitions. Or, you might learning something new, giving you new energy, enthusiasm and "fuel" for moving forward.

VIRGO

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, transformation, death/rebirth, the occult, secrets and resources from other people.)

You may have some powerful yet controversial ideas right now that you want to put into action. Or, you might need to speak your mind about something that is not likely to be well received. Or, you could feel the need for healing—physical or psychological—and you're trying to figure out the best strategy to do that. The question is: how can you assert yourself and your needs in a way that is not too abrupt but not too understated either?

You have plenty of resources to draw on: soothing social skills, ability to be indirect (yet effective), and the charm and grace to bring these together. However, the problem may arise when you feel your autonomy or independence are being compromised, resulting in a power struggle with those involved. Sometimes charm alone won't win over an opponent who is determined to win at all costs. Or perhaps you are the determined one and find yourself confronting others who (it seems) want to manipulate you into doing things their way.

You may find it helpful to appeal to others' sense of greater possibilities. In other words, be inventive by taking your different "sides" and framing them in a context that encompasses all of these sides. This creates a common ground within a much bigger picture. It might create almost as many problems as it solves, but it could also move you out of a stalemate which is very valuable. Use your own intuition and insight to decide how (or if) this is a workable solution.

 

 

LIBRA

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, solitude, privacy, alone time, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include working behind the scenes, private time, spiritual connection, and performing selfless service for the Greater Good or for a higher purpose. You could have vivid dreams or your imagination might create images or scenarios, which may provide important clues about this transition in your life.

In the coming transition, your focus starts out behind the scenes—in some way turning away from the busy world to take advantage of the quiet, solitude, privacy or peace that can be found there. Or, you might simply be connected to a quiet place inside that gives you intuitive insight into the events of the world around you.

This starts to shift toward the need to take action in a more direct way—except that you probably can't be too direct or you'll defeat the purpose of what you're trying to achieve. Communication and frame of mind will be important (and are now). Fairness, discretion and subtlety will take you a lot farther than direct force or argument, even though it might be tempting to indulge in the latter. Keep your vision, ideals and faith in focus to guide you.

LIBRA

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of "Significant Others," relationships, partnerships, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, and balance.)

In many ways, Libra, you may hold all the cards in your interactions right now. This could seem to give you the "green light" to make your move in making changes or progress in your close relationships or in your approach to how you relate to others. Alternatively, you may feel that someone else holds the power in your interactions, and you are left trying to tiptoe through a tricky maze of actions and reactions.

Either way, your situation with others will likely require a lot of strategy, negotiation and/or careful manoeuvring. This may involve a "two steps forward, one step back" kind of progress. However, your position is a strong one now, and your usual charm and diplomacy are powerful resources. Your biggest difficulty may be trying to decide how best to approach your goal. This is especially true if you try to aim for such a high level of perfection that no plan of action seems like it will work (and probably wouldn't).

The higher purpose at stake here is establishing your own agenda, needs, wants and priorities, while not feeling like you have to blow away the competition just so you can stand your ground. If you're afraid you're losing the battle, it might be tempting to want to sacrifice your autonomy to the good of the group (friends, family, co-workers, society, etc.). However, it's possible to take the "high road" without leaving your personal agenda behind. Aim for a win-win situation.

 

 

SCORPIO

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues, associates, co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large, and vision and hopes for the future.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include social alliances, networking, associates, groups and memberships.

In the coming transition, your focus starts by looking to friends, allies, associates and society for assistance and support. You might be looking to others to help you heal wounds from the past, or you could be reaching out to help others in that way. This will begin to shift toward finding a higher (or deeper) purpose that connects you to ideals, imagination, illusions and/or unconscious wishing. You might feel yourself becoming a bit detached from the world around you, but this gives you the opportunity to find a deeper connection to the Universe or the Family of Humanity or perhaps a higher creative part of yourself that you didn't realise was there.

You are still striving to balance your higher principles with concrete achievement, which is a long-term process lasting from late August until the end of October. Right now it is focused on the battle between your intuitive faith and your inspired ideals, which may not be the same or even agree with each other. If you are having trouble finding a sense of faith right now, dig deeper into the past to find the source of the discord. Dreams might offer a clue about this.

SCORPIO

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service, paid or volunteer, health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

Your thrust right now is to move forward in pragmatic, decisive ways – perhaps in your work, your health, or just focusing what you do with your time and energy that contributes to the world around you. The challenge is that although you are trying to forge ahead, there is still much to be done behind the scenes. This might seem to hold you back or keep you stuck in a stalemate. However, your situation is far from stuck!

The trick is to find a way to assert your will, priorities, desires and ambition, while still maintaining a healthy balance with a spiritual perspective. In other words, don't get locked into a linear approach in whatever you're doing ("I just have to do this and this will happen"). You probably have to work cooperatively with the Universe to get where you're going, and that means not being able to move ahead as directly or quickly as you'd like to.

Listening to that deep penetrating intuition of yours will help you hear the subtle whisperings of the Universe, which is probably working more cooperatively with your aims than you realise. Surprisingly creative ideas and inspiration may emerge this way. And even though these ideas may seem to pull you off track, they can also help you see the bigger picture more clearly. Detaching yourself somewhat from your intended outcome can allow the natural flow of the Universe to fill in the gaps and help you get where you're going. This is a cooperative effort.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include career, ambition, long-term projects, and the constant refinement required to achieve your goals.

In the coming transition, your focus starts with the opportunity to examine not just what you want to accomplish in the future, but what you have already achieved up to this point. It is just as important to take stock of your past successes because you will build on these as you reach toward new goals. This begins to shift toward aligning yourself with others who can help you move toward those goals, both by pushing you and persuading you.

You might find that things that are said and discussed with your colleagues, associates and friends seem to reflect an inspired vision of what you want to aspire to. But your intuitive wisdom may reflect a somewhat "darker" or deeper picture that doesn't have quite as much "sweetness and light" as you wish it did (or as others would have you believe). Don't mistake healthy questioning for loss of faith. If you feel a loss of faith, it's possible that you have expanded your understanding and awareness in certain areas and now other areas of your psyche need to catch up and re-integrate.

SAGITTARIUS

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and joi de vivre.)

Your creative self-expression is ready to burst! You've been going through a challenging year of uphill battles and questioning your vision. Right now you may feel like you just want to move forward – it almost doesn't matter where or why, as long as you can be yourself and set yourself free! Your creative energy is high right now, and as much as you might not want to admit it, being held back for a while has made your life force and energy stronger.

I wish I could say that all the lights are green and you can sprint ahead, but there are implications to deal with that will require balance, discretion and diplomacy. The good news is that you will likely have the support you need from others (friends, associates, groups, community), although in order to draw on that support you may have to compromise on your freedom a bit.

This might feel like yet another setback or roadblock, but what is required is more about cooperation and collaboration. It is time to integrate the discipline and hard work you've been doing (in those uphill battles) with patience, tact and social skills. This can help you get the support and backing you need from others for your chosen direction without feel you have to divorce yourself from the rest of the world (or the Universe) to do it. Aim for balance and a win-win solution.

 

 

CAPRICORN

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include your pursuit of principles, ethics and ideology (and perhaps theology), in addition to the quest to expand your horizons—literally or metaphorically.

In the coming transition, your focus starts by examining the moral values and specific attitudes that guide your ambitions and your quest for understanding. Your quest for truth and meaning may be something you can get through interaction with others, or perhaps by acknowledging and embracing the more intangible blessings and resources that you have at your disposal.

This will shift into implications for your career and ambitions, and especially how you assert and communicate authority and expertise to others. You are challenged to find ways to take a stand that are persuasive without being pushy, and congenial without being too compromising. The work you have done toward empowering and grounding yourself is perhaps being contradicted or challenged by an idealistic vision of the way things "should" be. You may find that some of the struggle lies in a conflict between your own higher principles and the philosophical vision of others. Your transition involves finding ways to bridge the gap with others to create a win-win outcome.

CAPRICORN

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

There is a burst of energy in your home life, your personal needs, your impulses and/or your relationship to the past. More specifically, you may feel the urge to break free from or confront past patterns. In a way, this may be a time when you "leave home" – whether you are simply moving your residence, or are leaving behind parts of your identity that you have outgrown.

If this energy were to go unchecked, it would lead to impulsive rebellion, defiance and recklessness. And in fact, it might feel like this at first to your usually cautious and paced Capricorn nature. However, this is probably a much needed (and perhaps long overdue) movement to break out of old habits that now interfere with your purposes.

Those purposes involve interaction with others who may attempt to calm you down or encourage you to behave in a more balanced fashion. This might play out in the form of feeling a child-like urge to resist an authority figure. Or, you might gain the support of a colleague, co-worker or mentor, but need to compromise your plans or vision somewhat, to maintain that support. The idea is to find a more workable balance between the subjective and objective aspects of your personal needs and ambitions. Doing so will require you to reach beyond the purely practical to include a more imaginative and inspired vision of what is possible. To do that, you may need to mobilize your more independent impulses and risk being a bit "politically incorrect."

 

 

AQUARIUS

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, death, rebirth, transformation and sexuality.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include encounters with the mysteries of life, especially examining how the balance of power with others can shift and change depending on your assumptions, beliefs and greater context that you frame it in.

In the coming transition, your focus starts out by digging deep into the specifics of how power becomes a balancing act between you and others. No one holds ALL the power, although sometimes you might have to look very closely, as if with a psychological microscope, to find the pivotal point of your power. This focus starts to shift into a quest to find how to wield that power in ways that are ethical, just and fair. How do you assert yourself in ways that neither compromise your integrity nor place your priorities above others?

To answer this question, you may need to wrestle with a conflict between your dream of who you are as a sacred or special human being versus your vision of what you are capable of becoming and achieving. These may seem to be incompatible right now, especially as you are challenged to become more grounded and committed in your close one-to-one relationships. It may help to find opportunities to speak your highest truth in soothing ways that might even seem superficial but contain the essence of something greater.

AQUARIUS

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

You are embarking on a journey of learning, and you might feel a bit like a kid on your first day at school. This might involve literally taking a course in some subject, or it might mean you are taking in new experiences which you must make sense of. Either way, you will likely need to mobilize your innate intuition and spontaneous "knowing" – and to let your sense of adventure guide you!

You are on a precipice that requires you to start fresh with a clean slate. Your past knowledge and experience will only take you so far, and right now it is to your advantage to walk into new experiences without preconceptions. However, that doesn't mean your knowledge and experience are unimportant – far from it. In fact it is important to strike a balance between your personal experience and your worldly knowledge; between the raw information you gather and the greater meaning it implies.

That balance also extends to relationships, both with Significant Others (partner, spouse, family, etc.) and with others who take a more community-based role in your life (mentor, colleague, spiritual advisor, etc.). It may be time to integrate your own understanding and wisdom with that of others, although ensuring that your own creativity and autonomy are not suppressed. It may be necessary to compromise your ideas a little, but your essential vision can remain intact.

 

 

PISCES

SOLAR ECLIPSE

NEW MOON in VIRGO

September 22 to October 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of love, balance, harmony, close relationships, marriage, partnership, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, lovers and adversaries.)

This is the beginning of a long-term transition that will unfold over the coming year, starting with the next 4 weeks. The areas most likely affected by this transition include close relationships, your style of interaction, what you want from that interaction and what you bring to relationships.

In the coming transition, your focus starts by examining the nature of your relationships and interactions, especially to determine if these areas reflect your knowledge or if your perspective might need to be refined. This starts to shift toward creating a new balance of power with others, since it is not enough to figure out the "formula" for how to interact with others. It's just as important to ensure that you can stand up for your priorities and can give a voice to all the different parts of you.

To do this, it may help to draw on a sense of morality and optimism about life. However, this might conflict to some extent with a quiet inner voice that believes more in sacred solitude and humble service, than overt demonstrations of idealism or practicality. Remember that while you are discovering how to balance all these different perspectives, you are also more than your belief system, ambitions and power struggles. Don't forget to have faith in the part of you that lies beyond what you can see in yourself.

FULL MOON in ARIES

October 6, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

This is a time to gather together new assets, skills, self-reliance and courage – all resources for the coming journey. This involves re-assessing your personal values, especially how much and in what ways you value yourself. What may be pulling you in a different direction from this is a wish to cooperate with others in order to share and balance the power with them.

What power? Every interaction contains power implications and dynamics – who gets to have the last word, whose opinions win in the event of a stalemate, how assets and resources are divided up. These issues are often decided on an unconscious or unspoken level, and are played out in the way you and others interact. Right now, those interactions and power dynamics require a diplomatic and gentle touch, but which also allows you to assert your interests and priorities. That's where your own resources, courage and self-value come in. These qualities are required now in order to maintain a healthy balance between yourself and others – not allowing one to dominate over the other, but to find a balance in which a win-win situation can emerge.

This may involve breaking out of old patterns and reaching for a new vision of what is fair, just and wise. You have been working toward this all year, and the time is approaching when you will need to take what you've learned and commit to a direction that resolves the struggle of realism versus idealism. That solution is not likely to be perfect, but that's okay – it only needs to make sense to you in a way you can live with. In order to find the best solution for you, it is important to be willing and able to assert your personal worth AND work cooperatively with others. This is not about caving into your ego. It is about ensuring that you are included in your own life.
