Many women I know online and in real life are answering the call of this eclipse… They are doing exactly what Schopenhauer mentions in this quote, withdrawing/elevating themselves above the mass. They are answering their soul’s call for change, growth and transmutation. They are going with the flow of the celestial tide, opening their hearts to receive.
There are men who are doing this too but I see women taking the lead.
This is why I came here as a woman this time around. To maximise my potential for soul growth… to more easily shed linear timelines and the need to be right.
So much of my early childhood programming came from my father because my mother left when I was only three. The need to be right has been overpowering in my life. It was my platform of stability for so long, just as it was my father’s.
Later, once I got to know my mother, I watched her struggle on those same linear, patriarchal terms in her own search for spiritual truth… Alas, it is not possible to possess the truth. And so she had to admit defeat after defeat every time she looked outside herself.
Sadly, rather than learning from her struggle, for the first half of my life, I repeated her pattern. In my pride I was convinced that where she failed to nail down the truth, I would succeed.
To know truth is not possible – it is only possible to BE truth and we can only be truth when we surrender completely to light, returning to our zero point again and again… surrendering ever more deeply with each breath.
My mother was forced to surrender in the end… Dementia took her ability to reason. Perhaps this was the greatest blessing of this incarnation for her. Or perhaps she surrendered to love just before she lost her ability to reason. I don’t know. I only know that I love her and that everything is going to be OK in the end.
If it’s not OK, it’s not the end. Love has won.
Today, on the day of the 21 August Solar Eclipse, I am grateful for the ability to surrender to love. When I AM love, I am also truth because there is no other truth than love.
Pulling the Queen of Cups as our card of the day on the day of the solar eclipse tells me that many of us will have a complete emotional reset, as well as experience an increase in psychic ability. This is true for both men and women but more women are currently answering this calling.
The Queen of Cups is Water of Water (feminine/yin). Water corresponds to emotions and intuition. This eclipse also happens on a Monday, ruled by the Moon/Archangel Gabriel. Some of us will experience life-changing revelations with regards to our life purpose, in addition to the emotional/psychic reset.
