This week's solar eclipse, on Thursday, September 1, 2016 is
"theannular solar eclipsevisible from Madagascar and locations in Central Africa. The Moon's shadow will also cross parts of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.For most viewers in Africa, the eclipse will be a partial solar eclipse.The eclipse will begin at 06:13 UTC on September 1, 2016. The maximum point will take place at 09:01 UTC, and the annularity will last for 3 minutes and 6 seconds."
Astrologically Elsa P. gives this succinct advice about using the positions of the heavenly bodies during this solar eclipse.
"...Find a goal, people. Shoot for something. Make sure it’s righteous (Sagittarius)! Make sure it helps people (Virgo). Don’t be afraid to sacrifice and act with compassion (Pisces). Because if you do this, I bet you have a GREAT WEEK ahead. Never mind, you can set your inspired (Neptune) course (Mars Saturn) for the future (Jupiter), creatively and emotionally (Sun Moon)...
Pete and I are applying that advice in our lives today. We sent an email to members of our community last night, it opens with this paragraph (edited)
"Pete and I prepare to move from the woods in Langley, where we have built the original tiny home, chemical free and fragrance free Safety Pin Cafe lifestyle. The strong and swirling winds of winter during the past couple of years have brought White Pine tree tops and limbs too close for comfort. The dampness and mold of a deep forest life is also more difficult for me to manage. These two issues spur us to take action, and care for ourselves. So we have come up with this proposal to move our Safety Pin Cafe lifestyle to __________."
This is our goal: to collaborate(with people and place we respect), seek(creative living solutions) and offer(our services, and experiences) to help grow an organization's mission(Virgo). There are risks and costs involved in our goal and to get to some mutually beneficial outcome all involved will need to be inspired and future thinking. We meet with this group this evening for food, pie and conversation. The crockpot has been working over time, and details are still being tidied up today. The pie will go in the oven in time to be baked and ready to eat with ice cream while we discuss the potential.
There will be work (hard and maybe frustrating) to be done to make this goal possible come this winter. But it's worth it, we think.
One last thing Elsa wrote about this solar eclipse,
" Now please, please,spread this postfar and wide. Because I know astrologers are going to scare people with this. I’m telling you, if you’ll work with Mars Saturn, it’ll be like sitting at the table holding at least three aces and maybe four."
How about you, got a goal and people to connect with?
