power spots of 2007, taking place in the
most spiritual of signs and graced by what
Merriman calls the “super[wo]man
Pluto trine Saturn. Those
who take the time to consciously synchronize—with
methods like those we share a bit further
on—can enter a new era in mind and relationships.

spiritual or transcendent sanction to even the most commonplace interchanges… the
need of giving a more permanent significance to interpersonal relationships.”
theme of blessings in relationship is reiterated
by several features: this eclipse activates
the North Node, usually considered more pleasant
or fortuitous than the South. According to
astrologer Celeste Teal, a Dragon’s
Head lunar eclipse opens a positive “inflow” with “the

highest vibration of Pisces would tend to accentuate
the mystical side of those emotions and those
relationships. Yet another layer of love surfaces
in relation to this eclipse: August 28 honors
the birth of Nepthys, the Egyptian equivalent
of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love. Jean Shinoda

in Jungian terms as the part of each of us

is an alchemical force that is flowing to us
constantly from the invisible realm of Spirit.

door during this eclipse and it’s

divine love to bless your mind, world and
relationships, and that wish shall be granted.

and in our lives. What’s your wish? Would you like
to be more constant in forgiveness? Do you
wish that your relationship with yourself or
others become more successful and fulfilling
for all involved? Would you like your business
or professional connections to work with greater ease, harmony and
results? Now is a very powerful time to establish such aspirations.
I would like my attitude and relationships be blessed with love, harmony
I wish to be able to concentrate on love affirmations
when I use them and for that consciousness to last after prayer.

Remember, you are an instrument that’s necessary for the answer
to your prayer; stay alert to signs and opportunities
and take whatever additional action is necessary to ground the blessings
