So why do we all grow so excited about eclipses when historically they were the instigators of plague and pestilence. In some of the old myths the eclipse was the time of darkness where the Devil had the chance to enter the world and reap havoc. Eclipses are so symbolic in terms of celestial bodies: consider this and the reflection of ourselves - the sun, the masculine symbol and is light is eclipsed by the moon, the feminine and symbolic of illusions. The feminine reveals all that we don't know about ourselves, the hidden or suppressed aspects. If you think about it, it is quite poignant because when the eclipse reaches totality a shadow travels across the earth. That shadow is symbolic of our dark sides, that which we avoid. This eclipse represents the end of an era and a new beginning where we, as individuals, have to face ourselves, our ideals and our illusions. Once illusions shatter we can move into reality and focus on that which is real. Last time I experienced a total eclipse I dreamt the whole story of Labyrinthine, a book about art, eclipses, synchronicity and the divine blueprint. It took me five years to write the book and it is only now that the film script is being drafted and the audible version is being produced. I have been waiting to write the following one and am excited about the prospect of dreaming the next one. I can feel the story is in my unconscious and awaiting release. Let's hope that this eclipse will be the trigger!!!
