March Solar Eclipse: Total System Reboot.


If you’ve been looking for a change the universe is about to deliver.

On March 20th, 2015, a powerful Solar Eclipse ignites a major turning point and beginning into our lives.

A new 19 year cycle is in the process of being born and many of us could feel a total system reboot as a result of this intense and energizing energy.

How many times have we dealt with electronic snafus and said to ourselves, “Time to reboot”?  It’s the thing we tend to do when there are no other options available to fix a problem.

Reboots always seem to correct or eliminate the strangest of problems in a quick instant. Wouldn’t it be something if we could do the same in our own lives?

The secret truth is that you can. There are certain times during the year where you can tap into a restarting/rebooting type energy. This March Solar Eclipse is precisely that—a time to restart and begin anew. Similar to rebooting our gadgets, we’re all about to hit the on/off button on ourselves and have a chance to wipe the slate clean.

Whether you realize it or not, a new beginning and fresh start is happening around you. If you’re aware of this energy and open to the possibilities you might be able to see the potential in your own life. This is a great time to set intentions for yourself, make amends and look forward to new beginnings.

Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons, which create something new in our lives, and this one will be visible in parts of northern Europe. At the exact point of the eclipse, the moon will cross paths with the sun and create a burst of energy release. Many of us will actually be able to feel a resurgence of some sort because of it. The electromagnetic fields of the Earth are directly affected and the power behind it is more than super-charged.

This Solar Eclipse in particular is even more impactful because it’s a supermoon and eclipse rolled into one. That means we can expect to feel even more ramped up and ready to go. On top of that, it’s occurring in the 29th degree of Pisces which is the last degree of the zodiacal wheel. That means we’re in the process of saying goodbye to something while embarking upon totally new territory.

Something new is waiting and it’s up to us to seize the opportunity.

Something else to be aware of is this Solar Eclipse holds a ton of spiritual splash in the background.  The sun, moon, Mercury, Chiron and Neptune are all nestled in the sign of Pisces at the peak of it.

Pisces is a sign that is in tune with the higher forces in play in the universe. Due to this influence our perception will be higher than normal and if we listen closely new insights will come to light.
Adding even more impact to this Solar Eclipse is the fact that the sun will enter the pioneering sign of Aries about 13 hours after the peak of it.

This transition delivers the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere and the Fall Equinox in the southern hemisphere. A change of seasons is upon us and this is another great indicator that we’re shifting gears into new territory.

There’s always an element of mystery as well as a possible fear component when we embark on something new. No matter if you decide to jump in feet first or poke in one toe at a time, the universal tools are there to help you if you’re aware of them. This Solar Eclipse delivers the system reboot we all need to help us get to wherever we’re going next.

For additional personal insight, here are the themes associated with the Solar Eclipse energy for each Zodiac sign. Something important to keep in mind is despite how this affects you personally; a Solar Eclipse of this capacity will heighten awareness and insight to great levels. Aha moments are really prominent and if you listen hard enough you can hear the universe talking…it’s just not always saying exactly what you want to hear.

Taurus: Setting new long term goals is the emphasis of this system reboot for you. It’s time to start making a dream a reality.

Gemini: New seeds are in the process of being planted in your public sector which could alter the way that people see you—in a good way.
