Sometimes we have dark days. Sometimes the best days are eclipsed by bad things. The eclipse has two elements for me; the transition and the shadow. The transition of the shadow across the sun suggests a phase change to me. Something that I’ve been undergoing recently as I embrace the duality of being an artist and advisor.
The shadow blocking the sun is also a metaphor for how the ego can block your true self. For decades I blocked my artist side with justifications that it wasn’t a responsible use of my time.
Art isn’t just a hobby for me, it’s my source of energy. But the advisory work is also a source of creative ideas for me. My daily interactions with entrepreneurs and makers generate insights for my practice.
In astrology, the spiritual aspects of the moon represent our deep emotional tides. Astrologists believe an eclipse is a life-changing time to seek change and usher in evolution. I don’t know anything about astrology but I love the analogy to my own transitions.
