Solar Eclipse May 20, 2012 @ 4:47 PST. 7:47 EST in Gemini. Eclipses are about sudden change. The energy of a Solar Eclipse is powerful. It is the coming together of the Solar, masculine energy with the Lunar, feminine energy that builds to a peak.

When the two power points are at the same longitude and declination in a Solar Eclipse, the light and energy from the masculine is interrupted. Thus a shadow is formed on Earth known as an eclipse path which affects our life in those areas affected by that shadow.

When energy interruptions occur as in this Solar Eclipse our natal energy patterns resonate. We get to choose how to use the planet cycles in our life. It is an opportune time to release old patterns that no longer work for us. New patterns can be implemented in their place.

This Solar Eclipse May 20, 2012 gives us the opportunity to make powerful changes through awareness of our own life energies. This Solar Eclipse is in Gemini which highlights ideas and communication. Find the house where Gemini is in your chart and Mercury for this is the place where you can make positive changes in your life.

Planets Influence

Planets Influence is a new tag that I added to my website since Atrology interests me. I am not an astrologer and astrology does not come easy for me. So I will keep the articles in this new category very simple.

It is helpful to understand how the planets influence us. They trigger what needs to be balanced in us. Then we are better able to see what needs healing within us through our positive intention.

When we open to the energies of the planets influencewe have the opportunity to enhance our growth and development as beings through our awareness.

We are not alone. The Universe provides us with both the challenges to grow and the energies and support to transform ourselves, thus meeting the challenges. In order to do this we need to surrender to God and ask for help.

This is the time to look at the areas of our life that are most challenging to us. Let go of what you do not want in your life during this Solar Eclipse May 20, 2012.

Intuitive Readings Seattle - Reiki Healing Seattle - Meditation Seattle

For more than 28 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn't matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same - to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it's best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:

Live your true potential
Feel your own wholeness
Experience inner peace and joy
Express your creativity
Be who you really are- perfectly human and perfectly divine
