Today is Thursday, June 30, 2011. The Moon enters Cancer at 12:11 pm EDT. This puts the Moon in the same sign as the Sun and the solar eclipse of tomorrow. In the Vedic mythology concerning eclipses, the gods and demons together churned the ocean of milk in order to create an elixir of immortality.
This idea of immortality is a theme which is worth exploring today and tomorrow. Eclipses happen when there is a New or Full Moon near the lunar nodes. These are the intersection points of the path of the Moon and the path of the Sun, where the Sun and Moon are perfectly aligned in three dimensions. Evolutionary astrologers believe these nodes represent something akin to what Caroline Myss calls your “sacred contract.” This means the nodes say something about your soul’s intentions for incarnating.
Let’s assume for a moment that this is true, that the lunar nodes represent a sort of portal through which souls with similar intentions come into the material plane for certain kinds of experiences. What this means is that a particular kind of contract is being activated at any given time. Since the Sun and Moon align with the nodes at an eclipse, it seems like a moment when these contracts get activated as agreements. This means right now thousands of souls are getting their marching orders for incarnation over the next six months, or at least setting their intentions consciously.
What does this have to do with you? Well, what if you can re-negotiate your contract? What if, like the souls who’ve been waiting for incarnation, you can now get the stamp of approval for a change in your own marching orders? What if now is the prefect opportunity to shift your life’s focus from repeating your karma to embracing your dharma?
I would put it to you that it doesn’t matter at all if any of this is true. What I am asking you is a version of what coaches, therapists and counselors call “the miracle question.” It is an aid to help you envision how the future will be different when any particular problem is no longer present. Also, it helps to establish goals.
So, today imagine that this is true. Imagine that you can re-negotiate your sacred contract. Not only that, but imagine that it works so well you get the stamp of approval to change your contract in a way that would eliminate any problem in your life.
When you wake up the next morning, how are you going to start discovering that the miracle happened? What else are you going to notice? What else?
