You’re experiencing the opportunity to see yourself as the center of your own universe. This is an important sensation for everyone to undergo, especially given the common tendency to place someone else in that seat — whether consciously or not. That is rather like handing another person your car keys and asking them to drive you wherever they want.
We’re in the final week of the present Mercury retrograde, which has been almost concealed under the other unusual astrology surrounding it — the eclipses, which are now over; and Mars retrograde. The period when Mercury prepares to station direct is usually a time of revelations: of hidden truths emerging, and patterns coming together.
Tomorrow’s lunar eclipse will be followed in two weeks by its solar counterpart, which will also be the last of this cycle with the North Node in your sign. What have you learned in the past year or so about your path through life, and in what ways have you progressed along it? This may also in some ways feel like the culmination of a longer journey beginning in the summer of 1999.
The lunar eclipse marking the beginning of your birthday month is pretty exceptional astrology, potentially rivaling last year’s momentous eclipse at the very end of your sign. The current event is encouraging you to shine like the star at the heart of our solar system, which rules your sign, and is symbolic of the gift you have of leadership and of example.
