`Aha Update #12: Aiming for the light New Moon and Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017

"... Astrologically, the house where the eclipse lands will be highly energized.  Leo is a Fire sign, but you can also see Mars is nearby along with the n. node. I see creative drive in this chart. A desire to feel and to be vitally alive. (The solar eclipse happens on the New Moon, the dark moon is also a time when intentions for the coming lunar cycle of approximately 30 days can be set.)
Elsa continues, "I expect the lights to go out. I intend to be infused with light and energy when they come back on.  The emphasis is not on the darkness but on the brilliance!" - Elsa on the Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017 (read Elsa's entire post, which includes ideas for setting intentions based on where the eclipse is in your chart.)
The Leo solar eclipse takes place in my 8th House of legacy, heredity, death and rebirth; Pete will experience that eclipse in his 12th House of intuition, secrets, dreams. Taking clues from astrology, and Elsa Panizzon's point of view, that the emphasis is not on the darkness but on the brilliance after sun and moon separate I'm putting the astrology and kilo (paying attention Hawaiian/Pacific Island style) onto this 'aha update.

  • Solar eclipse in the 8th house: Light up dark places, fearlessly.
  • Solar eclipse in the 12th: Share your light and positive energy with others; particularly those who may be suffering.

It's too easy to live in fear when Environmental Illness is your reality. No, it's not something you 'get from me.' Just as a wall won't keep poverty on that side, not yours. A medical diagnosis (which I paid for ... how odd is that) set me and Pete onto the path of being Mauliauhonua a family intimate with where we live. Where do we live? For a pair like us, we live on the edge, on the border, and in between the micro and the macro. In this sort of life, we become very intimate with all the parts of Earth that other humans either don't see or won't see. We kilo, we observe everything because our survival depends on it. All indigenous (people intimate with their place) live this way.

As we clear out our self inflicting distractions as well as the wandering distraction of invading beliefs about who and what Environmental Illness is I like this bit of kilo:

One of my mother's favorite expression was "Piss on it." Other moms might have said, "Don't cast your pearls before swines." Here's what another astrologist, Rob Brezny is recommending for us Scorpio's.

" Some zoos sell the urine of lions and tigers to gardeners who sprinkle it in their gardens. Apparently the stuff scares off wandering house cats that might be tempted to relieve themselves in vegetable patches. I nominate this scenario to be a provocative metaphor for you in the coming weeks. Might you tap into the power of your inner wild animal so as to protect your inner crops? Could you build up your warrior energy so as to prevent run-ins with pesky irritants? Can you call on helpful spirits to ensure that what's growing in your life will continue to thrive? "

To end this update, here is a powerful song introduced to me by Terri Windling, writer, editor, muse and author of the blog on mythic life Myth & Moor. The song is  entitled "Why we build the Wall"
and is sung by Anais Mitchell. It was written a decade ago, but is as relevant today as ever. Even more important then to keep a light on and aim for enlightenment.

Here's a personal  INVITATION

Monday, August 21, 2017
10:00 A.M.
Join Pete and Me 
"The Muliwai"
(This is Sunlight Beach Public Access on the West side of Whidbey Island. The public access is about half way down Sunlight Beach Road. Look to the water side of the road, and a smaller than the usual home there, brick-red in color with a white lettered sign "STOVERS" OR "STOWERS". The driveway is next to that red house.)

While the tide is going out and while the Moon moves into her eclipsing position of the Sun
Bring your Eclipse Glasses, and/or your Flash light if you have 'em :)

P.S. Please come as fragrance free as you can be.

If the wild fire smoke is still too debilitating for you as it is for me, 
I may be setting my intention from Vardo for Two. But perhaps the sky will have cleared. We'll kilo.

Hope to see you at The Muliwai.
Mokihana and Pete
