Ah, you knew.  If we had a Lunar Eclipse at Full Moon we must have a Solar Eclipse at New Moon.  Yep, we do.  It is called the Solar Hybrid Eclipse and simply means that at some time during the eclipse it will be an annular eclipse and at other moments it will be a total eclipse.  It will be seen over the Atlantic Ocean and you might enjoy watching NASA’s animation of its journey:


During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon crosses between the Sun and the Moon and eclipses the light of the Sun to the Earth.  The effects of this event  can last as long as a year.  The Sun and the Moon at New Moon are both sharing the radiance of the Zodiac pattern of Scorpio.  Scorpio provides an even greater eclipse, if we let it, the eclipse of our inner self.  During this eclipse, it is a time to use our Will Power to dip in, discover, dissect and then direct our intentions to higher wisdom.

The Sun and Moon are at 11 degrees 15 minutes of Scorpio at New Moon.  The Sabian message of the degree is “An embassy ball.”  As an embassy, it relates to the sovereign territory of foreign lands.  As a “ball,” it relates to elegance, beauty and the things revealed by the chosen and privileged leaders of this territory.    Because we love to take a peek at the beauty of the ball, it is a time to realize we can “see” what we have concealed and may now have become foreign to us.  We may not  realize what challenges may be hidden as they may be camouflaged by the facade of elegance.  We can be enticed by the “bling” of our unconscious that can lead us to denial and illusion, guiding us away from the territory that keeps us bound in challenges and in preparation for a  warring inner and outer conscious states.  We use this to ignore the voice of transformation and remain in the territory of struggle displaying itself as anxiety and comparisons.  However, we can also use the “bling” to help us enter the territory of the unconscious, take charge of the challenges and awaken ourselves to the inner power.  The elegance we can find is the refined gracefulness of our soul…perhaps in foreign territory of our inner being because we have forgotten our conscious power to search for its wisdom.


Entering the time of the New Moon in Scorpio provides us with the entrance into a Celtic “Year and a Day ” gift.  Reed – Ngetal, the Celtic name of the lunar cycle, calls everyone to take on the power of searching and researching our inner self for a year and a day.  To do so brings about powerful insights and great wisdom.    Are you willing to come to the Ball and dance with your soul for a year and a day?  Are you willing to learn from your most sacred state of consciousness and open the door of Mystical Wisdom?  You have help, not only from this time of the year, but from the Mystical Rectanble  formed by the angling of planets to each other.  Earth, in her sacred alignment of support of this Solar Eclipse, initiates the arching of lights from one planet to another.  She archs to Mars in Virgo and Chiron in Pisces (who vibrate on the axis of healing and service).  Both arch to the Sun and Moon and the entire Stellium of planets that are aligned in Scorpio: Venus, Moon, Sun, and Saturn; along with the North Moon Node and align on the Axis of the Soul as they oppose the  Earth and the South Moon Node.  The wisdom to be revealed is the wisdom of how to Master the Soul Intention to live in the constant vibration of universal change and transformation and understand it, even when it is breaking down old structures of personal and universal states of consciousness.

In other sacred geometrical alignments, we have a Grand Trine and a Kite configuration showing up.  The Divine Grace revealed.    Mars in Virgo starts the field of the Grand Trine, archs to the Earth in Taurus  and to Pluto in Capricorn as they arch energy to each other.  The Earth and Pluto arch to Chiron in Pisces and completes the circuit of the head of the Kite.  As we open the Mystical Rectangle and release the healing power of Source, we most certainly have the opportunity to Master our states of consciousness that reveal our soul voice, passion and purpose,  and free us to live in a world of compassion, peace and a new order of leadership in a territory that may have been foreign to humanity, but is now the New World.

The intensity to step into the power is with us during this lunar cycle.  Some aspects of this power may be hidden, some partially hidden.  However, we, the Seekers of Truth and one’s who desire to live empowered by the voice of our Higher Privilege can lead the way with courage an intention.  Set the intention at the New Moon to gain the wisdom of the cosmos.  Cultivate it in your personal life by responding and let the cultivation overflow for all of humanity to use.   Call everyone to the Ball to be enticed by the Bling of Light that God/Goddess reveals.   Let the Higher Power Within guide you.


Love and Light,

Rev. Katherine Bell
