Leo New Moon: Walking the Circle

Perhaps this Leo New Moon calls for a new glyph for the Sun – not a closed circle with a dot in the middle, but rather a labyrinth. We set forth in life on a walk through this labyrinth, and no matter which course we take, we’ll inevitably end up precisely where we’re meant to be.

Eclipses in Action

Fault Lines

Oh yeah. Eclipses. They rattle us because they remind us where the bones are buried. They haunt our sensitive spots and tap on the trick knees of our psyches with the tiny ball peen hammer of fate until eventually – reflexively – we shoot right through the ceiling.
