Solar Eclipse Reboot!

Solar Eclipse In Progress!!

Many meanings are attributed to the Solar Eclipse, which can only happen at the New Moon. Our moon moves between Earth and the Sun blocking the sun from our view on earth for several minutes.  Astrologically, the darkness associated with the solar eclipse can speak to a shadow being cast over our lives.  However, because they happen at the New Moon, they are also about taking care of unfinished personal business, getting honest with yourself, and planting seeds for future growth.

Whatever the meaning, these kinds of world events unite us all.  Best seen from North America, maybe this shared event is important as a sign of something that might bring us together – as opposed to the many recent events that have been so divisive and full of hate. 

And this eclipse is a wonderful way to connect with our inner kid.  Yes, the kid who might have had the opportunity to do science projects and who made things to explain the way the physical world works.  I’m remembering my dioramas and models, some pretty awful, and others quite cool. 

So . . . today . . . the solar eclipse!  Don’t miss it.  I didn’t plan sufficiently so as to have purchased glasses, but was able to put my own Pinhole Box Projector together in 15 minutes.  I just tested it on the pre-eclipse sun and it works!

I’ve been absent from this blog for a long time.  A lot has happened since I last posted in 2016, much of it very disturbing, to say the least, and some of it profoundly shocking and frightening.  People have been affected and, correspondingly, I've been extremely busy. I’ve worked with a number of clients managing challenges associated with a variety of issues, including the impact of current events. 

On a daily basis, I have the great pleasure of doing collaborative treatment with people who are smart, interesting and so full of resources and focused on personal growth and expansion.  I love what I do. 

I’ll be back with more blog posts, but in the meanwhile, enjoy the Solar Eclipse.  And, even if you can't watch it, let's all think about it as a reboot!
