We're knee-deep in Eclipse season as we currently navigate the two-week period between the New Moon Solar Eclipse on April 30th and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 15th. This powerful time in the cosmos is known as the "Dragon Tunnel" as Eclipses occur due to the nodes of the Moon (the future-oriented North Node being the Dragon's Head and the past- oriented South Node being the Dragon's Tail.) Between the two eclipse dates denotes a powerful energetic portal (or tunnel) that catalyzes fated events and re-directs us back to the path of our true destiny. Coupled with a seasonal Mercury Retrograde in Mercury's own sign of Gemini and Venus, Mars and Jupiter all charging into the fiery sign of Aries, we have officially left the dreamy and illusionary Pisces season with just Neptune traversing through the last degrees for another 3 years yet. Although there's lots of FIRE now in the energy - giving us the motivation to pursue new projects and goals, change horses and start in different directions, Mercury going Retrograde will throw a wrench in there making for miscommunications, electronic malfunctions and travel delays. Double and triple checking EVERYTHING from appointment dates to flight information, to "fine print" on contracts will be of upmost importance. Thankfully Mercury only wreaks havoc for a few weeks as he will station and go direct again on June 3rd and it's all systems "GO" moving forward.
