Eclipses often illuminate the facets of our lives that we've outgrown or that keep us from feeling free. You might realize you've outgrown a teacher or, conversely, step into a guiding role.

Let empathy be your compass as you redefine boundaries.

Magic finds us when we least expect it. I left my office for a few minutes today, and when I returned, a great horned owl feather lay on my doorstep.

Mythological Mars, the god of war, is also the guardian of agriculture. Inherent in the myth of Mars is the understanding that conflict could ensue if people's basic needs aren't met. Mars was a protector. Astrological Mars relates to how we enforce our boundaries and our ability to say no.
