For this total solar eclipse the Sun and Moon will be *precisely* aligned with Chiron: known for raising our awareness for the purposes of healing. Chiron acts like a lens, focusing our attention, and I wrote these horoscopes to assist in that.
During the two weeks between a pair of eclipses life can feel like it speeds up or takes a sharp turn. You may be asked to notice what you no longer need to stay attached to, to choose your next step toward your vision with intention, and to stay loose enough to roll with the unexpected. Mercury stationing retrograde April 1 is adding some "interest" to the process.
Between the current eclipses, chances are you'll begin getting a clearer sense of how to move toward what you desire and align your steps better with your intention, and new options will emerge. Throughout Taurus season, your body and emotions could be quite informative, even if your mind feels like it's playing tricks on you.
Taking a walk Monday, I encountered several water striders zipping about the surface of a stream pool. As I watched, I had a fleeting thought about the concentrated burst of astrological activity arriving in about a week and a half. Something about the shadows, ripples, and reflections called to mind the upcoming Mercury retrograde and pair of eclipses, as well as ideas about how to move through them.
I had wonderful intentions of writing a post last week about this week’s busy astrology, what with the equinox and the Aries New Moon on the same day, and Pluto changing sign a couple days after that, and Mars finally leaving Gemini after about seven months… but life often reflects astrology on both macro and micro levels. In other words, I got too busy — preoccupied with the process of transitioning out of a job (amusingly apropos of Pluto leaving Capricorn) and preparing for a trip to a new sea (echoing Mars entering Cancer). Sometimes all you can do is just keep swimming, no matter what's going on in the skies!
