We have been journeying between eclipses since Feb. 10. Now we are on approach to conclude a period of essentially being in transit from one place to another, and we’ll arrive with the Pisces New Moon and solar eclipse on Sunday. Len Wallick offers some travel advice to you today.

Self-Quickening: A Pisces Eclipse Travel Guide

Sunday’s partial solar eclipse with the New Moon in Pisces is coming right up. As it happens, the Sabian symbol for the eclipse degree has “self-quickening” for its Sabian symbol keyword. And moving faster — with ease and agility (literally or metaphorically) — happens better when one offloads what’s unnecessary and travels light.

Easy On Yourself

The Moon entered Capricorn this morning, where it will continue to move until Thursday. Combined with what the Pisces Sun implies, Len Wallick recommends that you take what the Moon and a few select other planets are doing this week as a sign to go gently into your good, inner work.

Defining (and Refining) Restraint

Do you want a simple guideline to the current astrology that’s also easy to remember? If so, Len Wallick offers one for your consideration in this piece. It begins with first defining, then refining, the practice of restraint — especially as regards to a certain (and, unfortunately, familiar) form of verbal expression.

Loving the Transitions, Eclipse-Style

The day before entering Pisces, the Aquarius Sun makes an interesting, possibly subtle and potentially useful aspect to a rather notorious centaur planet: Pholus in Sagittarius. Since we’re between eclipses, this could offer some momentum to any pattern-shifting you’re attempting. Small, concrete actions can yield cumulative results.

Your Valentine

The astrology of Valentine’s Day 2017 as read by Len Wallick encourages you to release exclusive attachment to pervasive commercialization of the event, so as to embrace your own humanity — and that of others. It would follow that you should also fully embrace your own unique experience.

Using a documentary about the reciprocal relationship between the Mofu people of Cameroon and the Jaglavak ant as a starting point, guest writer Steve Guettermann discusses “sacred reciprocity.” That is, spoken and honest prayerful intent, offered from a place of gratitude and abundance (rather than “behaving to have”), even during a Dark Night of the Soul.

For Love or Money

You know money when you see it, and likely the same with love. As Len Wallick sees it, the two-week period between the lunar eclipse taking place today (or tomorrow, depending your time zone) and the solar eclipse to follow will be an opportune time to realize the power of your mind when it comes to both.

This Friday (Saturday in some times zones) we have a Full Moon in Leo (with the Sun in Aquarius). But this is not just any Full Moon; it is also a penumbral lunar eclipse. As Amanda Painter describes, it’s an eclipse whose chart is beautifully illustrating our collective moment.

Grace

Some consider grace to be an elevated state exhibited only rarely. As Len Wallick sees it, grace is instead an ability to levitate the condition of others. Beginning with Mercury today, the cosmos is now indicating how you might find your own unique way to do some graceful lifting of your own.

Express Yourself and Get Down To Business

With the Sun reaching the midpoint of Aquarius, a ‘fixed’ sign, the season ‘fixes’ into place. Yet our astrology is still leaning more heavily on the mutable signs (which are adaptable) and the cardinal signs (which are about initiative); as Amanda Painter notes, socially we seem to be reflecting this energy.

How You Think, What You Feel

The Sun in fixed Aquarius is reaching a point where it will be resonating strongly with a large number of celestial objects in cardinal signs. As Len Wallick sees it, this puts you in a position either to make conscious choices or create unintended consequences based on how you think and what you feel.
