What the new stars for the week ahead mean
YOUR STARS: Eclipses always come in pairs. A solar eclipse in Pisces just struck on March 9, and we are now hurtling towards a powerful lunar eclipse in Libra on March 23.
YOUR STORY: The residents of Horoscope Beach were gathered in the cafe. “We’re right in the middle of a powerful eclipse season,” said Eileen, the sage who ran the local shop.
“Yes, an eclipse season, but what does that mean?” asked Old Goat Gracie, a very rational Capricorn.
Eileen smoothed down her black silk dress, under which she was wearing her pink-and-green striped yoga pants (from Paris). She was an unorthodox Sagittarian – but the others were used to that. Besides, she knew stuff.
“At best, an eclipse reveals helpful information you might not have noticed before,” she said. “At worst, it can force you to make a fresh start. In the olden days they used to run and hide when the sun disappeared. Nowadays, we’re not so superstitious.”
Blur, the Arian warrior, was breaking out in a horrible sweat.
He was known as the Fastest Blur In Town, on account of being a Martian Artist – but the approaching eclipse in Libra (his Seventh House of Love) was making his head spin.
Out on the street, his horse began to whinny.
“I’m outta here,” he grunted and galloped off into the sunset. The others watched him go. “Well, it is a little eerie…” mused the Psychic Mermaid of Pisces Street, plucking a bit of Adele on her mandolin.
“Oh, it’s nothing we can’t handle,” smiled Eileen the sage. “As one of my great spiritual teachers once said: ‘The only thing an eclipse can do that you don’t want it to is put the spotlight on everything you want to change about your life.”
“Who said that – Eckhart Tolle?” asked Bert the barista, swishing over to collect their coffee cups. He was a Gemini and liked to keep up with the spiritual headlines.
“No, the Wary Witch said it, I believe,” replied Eileen.
Everyone looked at the Wary Witch, who was sitting at the end of the table. She hadn’t said a word yet. She was a Scorpio.
“I might have,” she murmured.
