Between February 10th and February 26th, we were in the period between the two eclipses. That means that karmic events and serendipitous meetings surround us. The eclipses are charged with a massive amount of cosmic energy. We can direct this potent energy to bring about changes in our lives, release the old toxic patterns of thinking, and welcome the new Age of Aquarius.
During this eclipse season, we are forced to take extreme actions related to relationships, money, and financial success.

However, there is a lot of support now for shifting and transforming these areas. As we approach the Solar eclipse at 8 degrees Pisces on Sunday, February 26, we start feeling the intensity of this transformational energy.
Astrologers believe that each Age lasts for about 2100 years, and we have just entered the Aquarian Age after having spent two millennia in the Age of Pisces. Innovative and future-oriented Aquarius asks us to take responsibility for our unique talents and play an active role in creating a better world.
We have been learning through pain and suffering for many years now. I think we are ready as humanity to make the next step and choose to make a shift from helplessness to power. We are ready to release complaining and victim mentality, let go of toxic relationships, jobs and unhealthy addictions, and welcome the unknown.
Learning through suffering, and going from one crisis to the next is getting old. Even though it might be necessary to suffer at the early stages of development to step outside of the comfort zone and create an opening for awakening to a deeper reality of who we are, there must be a better way. As A Course in Miracles puts it, “Tolerance for pain may be high, but it is not without limit. Eventually everyone begins to recognize, however dimly, that there must be a better way. As this recognition becomes more firmly established, it becomes a turning-point.” (T-2.III.3:5-7)
We are at the turning point! It’s a point of disillusionment and realization that we already have what we’ve been looking for within ourselves. We are learning to be free of guilt and to live on purpose. The Saturn will be transiting the Galactic Center during the eclipse, signifying the need to trust and take a leap into the unknown. All the dreams we have been yearning for will start to materialize quicker and quicker, as we accept our own power.
Below are some characteristics of the two eras. The beginning and ending of each age is less clear, but most astrologers agree that we are going through the transitional phase now. The transition can feel very disconcerting, as we adjust to the new way of thinking and build new neuro-pathways.
|Age of Pisces||Age of Aquarius|
|Illusion, deception, dream||Truth, reality|
|Dissolving in a group||Maintaining your individuality in a group|
|Looking for truth outside||Finding truth inside|
|Secret, hidden information||Revelation|
|Fear, guilt||Love, acceptance|
To make this transition process easier, we need to stay focused on our purpose. You might want to ask yourself the following questions:
As we learn to be masterful co-creators of our own life, we need to consciously practice staying grounded in our power. It takes time to release toxic emotional and mental patterns, and stabilize the new healthier way of being. Luckily, we have all the tools and techniques to do that now. Knowledge that has been available only to a handful of people in the past is now fully accessible by anyone.
As we begin to trust the new Aquarian way of thinking more and more, this quote can be helpful: “Do not model yourselves on the behavior of the world around you, but let your behavior change, modeled by your new mind. This is the only way to discover the will of God and know what is good, what it is that God wants, what is the perfect thing to do.” (Romans 12:2)
