Lunar Eclipse 12 December 2010

“Mercury the wise communicator and universal trickster turned retrograde….Mercury’s retro phase tends to bring unforeseen changes…”


I got up this morning at 2:30 am ET to view the eclipse and welcome the winter solstice. I was moved in the cold and windy night. Low-powered binoculars made it clear that I was looking at a sphere, not the familiar disk of white.

Earlier, as if on cue, a spark jumped from body to device and I spent the day today mending the electronics that were overcome by the power I unknowingly transferred.  A reminder, power flows invisibly and sometimes unexpectedly. My belief in omens is slight – I call myself pragmatic yet I take heed of the possibility that signs point out our paths if we’re observant.

Change is in the air – I have been living it, feeling it and transmitting it. Following my signs.
