The One becomes the Many.
The Divine "falls", through realms of energy and form,
Bringing Light and Love to Spirit-Matter.
It is all a play of Light & Shadows,
From Galaxies and Worlds beyond the beyond,
To your Star and Moon, and you as well.
It is all a wondrous fullness of Life and Light,
A spiraling, swirling, and sparkling dance of Spirit,
Of which you "see" but a little...so far.
Within these emanating/reflecting/refracting energies and forms,
You are embraced and supported by your stellar companions,
In this little corner of space, in this special world you call home.
Today/Tonight a special play of Light and Shadow will dance across your world. Twice a year the Sun, Moon and Earth align "just so", and their shadows fall upon one another. It is a wonderful affirmation of how intricately and wonderfully you can feel whole with the universe. This spiraling dance of Light and Matter forms a joyous affirmation that all of Creation is of one Life, of one Spirit which is you too.
This is the second eclipse and first Solar Eclipse of 2014. Here is what I wrote about this alignment in the 2014 General Forecast:
Annular Solar Eclipse (April 28-29)
The second eclipse of the year is an Annular Solar in Taurus. The annular type eclipse creates the effect of a "Ring of Fire" around the Sun as the Moon's distance from the Earth does not completely cover the Sun, and so a small portion of the Sun appears around the edges of the shadow formed by the Moon. The term Annular comes from the word annulus which means "bright ring".
Here is information about the Eclipse and where it will be visible. It will only be visible in the extreme southern hemisphere, most visible in Antarctica.
The message of the Taurus Solar Eclipse is centered again upon the fundamental question of value: where does your understanding arise as to how you value yourself and how do you value this world around you? The answer is that the true source of value is to be found within your experience of your Higher Self, for in your heart of hearts you are Spirit, in your core you are simply pure Love.
Each New Moon provides you with a blessing from Spirit, literally formed as an Inspiration that is lovingly offered so as to lead you out from within. As the moon aligns with the Sun, a message is imparted, a drop of Divinity offered up, and the Moon will modulate and bring this to you here on Earth. But during a Solar Eclipse, there is a even deeper working of Spirit through Matter, a greater play of Light and Shadow will dance before you now.
Every year, the New Moon of Taurus will bring you a refreshing reassurance that your true value, your inherent worth, is beyond anything you can imagine or measure on Earth. Yes, at any one time of manifestation, in any one life or even period in a life, you might imagine a limit to what you can do or become (but even here you would be mistaken, for you do not really know yet what truly lies within the depths of you). Your measure is beyond measuring because at the core of you is a Spark of the Divine, and this means you are Divine too. And it is this which forms your Perennial Promise of becoming more and more, of growing, learning and reaching for the beyond, forever and ever.
But at the Taurus Solar Eclipse your gift of Inspiration elicits a deeper welling up of patterns that were laid down long, long ago. For the Moon is the Bearer of your Past, (just as the Earth is your present, and the Sun your Avatar of ever-unfolding Tomorrows). So as the Moon comes between you and your Star, she will cross over and shadow the message that is there. You will have to be a little stronger, a little more resolute, and so pierce through these shadows of old failures and fears that are elicited by the Sun from the Moon, for these are the remainders, those hopes and promises unmet, in a far distant time, these are those losses that broke your heart.
For your Journey is not a straight line, and there will be rises and there will be falls. You will feel the fullness of your strengths, but also live through the waning of them too. You will find though that in the end that there is one source of strength, that there is one abiding power which will stand with you through it all. For behind all your lives, and within each life there is the Beauty and Goodness and Love that will never fade.
Your Fountain-Source of strength is with you always, for your higher Self will help you through. So at such a time of karmic precipitation, when a welling up of old shadows is folded into the Sun's gift of the New, you need to remember who and what you really are, to listen to your beloved there within you, your Higher Self, who will tell you once more, that you are beautiful, you are valued, you are love and loved...and you will Love and be Loved, for this is who you are.
Then you can turn and face the shadows, and redeem those broken remnants of yesteryear.
You can forgive yourself and one another, for you are not yet what you will someday be.
You will see through these temporary forms of matter...
Knowing truly you are more than these.
For you are Light and Love dancing out of shadows...
Drawing ever closer...
To the Crossing Point of the Light.
