The last Eclipse of the Spring is upon us. Falling in the first decan of Sagittarius (4plus degrees), this Lunar Eclipse is attempting to show us the origin of our beliefs and perhaps how they have misled us on our Path. Priya Kale, an Astrologer who divides her time between Mumbai and New York City joins me to help dissect this Eclipse in improv cahoots. I hope you enjoy your listen. Happy Eclipse!!!

“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.”
John Maynard Keynes
Monday: Moon in Libra, Sun moves into Gemini
The week starts with an explosion. Followed by racing winds being surfed by novel ideas, your mind should no doubt be blown back into a new dew with these celestial energies manifesting. Today is the 3rd square between Pluto & Uranus. This battle of the Titans has been going strong since Spring/Summer 2011 and will not quit until 2015. The nature of the square is conflict, friction, and resolution. Pluto wants power, consolidation, and change; Uranus wants liberation, freedom, and change. At least they both have change in common–it’s just their way of going about doing it. In the big world, this is the aspect responsible for the unrest in the Arab Spring, the Occupy movement, and the general feeling of revolution in the air. In the little world (your world), it is responsible for all your fears popping out of your shadow attempting to block you from the greatest breakthrough of your life. Again, this aspect is exact today. Use the brilliance of the bright Gemini Sun to put all the peices back together. Shoot, why not start a new puzzle.
Week of May 13th-19th
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” Tom Robbins
Monday: Moon in Cancer
Love is not unrealistic. Only those who relate to it selfishly may feel this way. Today, the two Planets who relate most to Love –Venus & Neptune–square off, creating a potential tragedy in the hearts of all you helpless romantics out there. Neptune says, “There is nothing wrong with being a romantic, just as long as your not helpless in it.” This is Personal Love, or Eros. It’s only a fraction of the infinite fabric of Love. Venus says, “But how can I love without any expectations?” A whisper from the depth of our Collective Heart answers, “Without trying, you find it. A love that never dies.”

Eclipse #2 of 2013 is upon us. It is an Annular Solar Eclipse occurring in the Tropical sign of Taurus. Aspected by many planets, creating quite the celestial drama for all of us earthlings. These are my thoughts….:::

Week of May 6th–12th
“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.”
Monday: Moon in Aries
This week begins under a vanishing moOn. The excited fires usually accompanied by an Aries mooN are tamed by it’s proximity to the Sun. Luna is waning towards her next cycle, which begins Thursday with the Solar Eclipse. The feeling is more internal, than external. Use this flickering flame to see what you can in the chambers of your shadow. Walk fearlessly with this moon towards her conjunction with Pluto, inquiring about all the ways in which you are changing. Ask: “What else can I do to make this change last forever?”
Week of April 29th-May 5th
“Try to accomplish everything without doing anything”
some Taoist sage
Monday: Moon in Capricorn
The week begins in front of a mountain of tasks to be done. Feeling it through this Capricorn mOOn, a seriousness carries through our entire process. This is good. And in the deeper layers of our Collective Psyche, Mars opposes Saturn, bringing about copious amounts of frustration, impatience, and feelings of being powerless. Pay no heed, keep moving forward. Sweat till you have no more. Get sore. Recover. And, of course, tell stories about it. The moON also harmonizes with Sun and Mars today, giving an extra boost to our Will’s aim.

In this show we will hold hands as we glance deep into the hole that is this Scorpio Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses are fascinating. They have a way of making things happen; getting us on the “right” path in our confusing lives. And so, welcoming such a portal, I give you my words with art and music to help you understand just what the hell is going on.
Week of April 22nd – 28th
Monday: Moon in Virgo
The week begins in earthy tones. With the Sun fresh in heavy, slow paced Taurus and the Moon in the late degrees of Virgo, the energies working through us may feel like they are functioning on a lower bpm. There aren’t any major aspects to note today, but the Virgo moOn does square Lilith in Gemini midday, potentially derailing our steady focus on self and its improvement into a more seductive sphere of separating desire. Be watching for this. It may come in the form of a friend of potential lover distracting you from the true focus of this day–which is refinement and organization of your vital energies.

Week of April 8th through the 13th
“ All of our pain comes from our expectations”
Monday: Moon enters Aries
Our tanks may well be on empty today. Even though the Moon is moving into Aries on this sluggish Monday, the moOn is invisible from the sky, shedding all its beams in preparation for the New mOon on Wednesday. Make it through work, do what you need to do, and don’t push yourself beyond your capacity. Your adrenals may be weak today. Deep reflection is needed. Give it to yourself. With the fires of Aries being ignited in us, our sexual energies running over, and heart’s sagas overriding our senses, it is good to just beware of it all today. Reflect on the nature of your desire and attempt wholeheartedly to get clear about it.
