On June 1 there’s another Solar Eclipse. It’s occurring in the twelfth degree of Gemini. According to Dane Rudyhar, writing in: An Astrological Mandala, this degree’s keynote phrase is “Liberation from the ghosts of the past.” In the commentary he challenges us to create, “virgin minds, for virgin fields”. This seems like a clear call to continue our mindfulness and meditation practices. How else will you be able to recognize a virgin moment, in a virgin mind?
Solar Eclipses mark major, important, new beginnings, which inherently implies a major ending as well…certainly in the balsamic time preceding the eclipse. Regardless, it generally affects a majority of us, all the time, especially those who live connected to the moon.
Would you like to have a “virgin mind, in a virgin field”, right now? What if everyone you met after Tuesday, becomes an opportunity for a new beginning untainted by the past, both recent and otherwise? What an opportunity for those who practice loving-kindness………..
Tuesday: Yoga for The Eclipse: Bring something from your home altar. Do your practice. Journal. Share your experience. Chant Om. A few times. Enjoy yourself. Find your sangha.
