Reflections – The Eclipse of the Moon – The After Party

 As the Moon reflects all in the whole universe, we too may reflect on the whole of our experiences.  I was mildly fretting yesterday that I had forgot to mention that the eclipse of our dear Moon was also happening near the South Node. I mentioned that the Moon in Scorpio/Eagle has many opportunities and possibilities, one being triggering those lower, primordial, …
