Another lunar eclipse coming up Weds of importance. This will be a Moon of Virgo, and I am aware that a similar configuration/event occurred on 02/20/89 - look back at the first half of 1989 in your life. This does not mean exactly what happened then will happen in the next 6 months, but you may see similar themes or issues. The signs most affected may be Sag/Gemini/Pisces/Virgo - but a full moon lunar eclipse is going to hit everyone, some way or another.
One thing about looking back - we always (if we've survived) have the benefit of hindsight and the inevitable wisdom it brings. What matters is whether we use that wisdom. For example, this eclipse is hopefully the last of a series of events astrologically that has put me in the washing machine stuck on agitate. In 1989, around the times in question, I made an impulsive, reactionary, ill-informed decision to make a change in my life based solely on 2 things - a job offer and fear. The years that have passed find me in a similar position but the variables have definitely changed. It turns out I'm at a place in my life where I could make an almost identical decision based on almost identical reasons. But for the fact that I have learned something in the intervening years, it would be easy to fall into the same mindset and let the events take me again.
I once read something written about me and a gazillion other people in this world... that we don't really wake up and start to live until the second half of our lives. I did not fathom it originally but now I get it. Some people live from day 1 and others of us require a lot of shaking, rocking and rolling to get the thing going.
Someone I consider very wise also told me that no matter where we are, it is exactly where we are supposed to be. I think of it in terms of, if nothing ever happened, nothing ever would... what frames the next event in our lives is what happened last. How we respond to these events, all leading to the final event, is what defines us as individuals. Some believe all of life is a cycle and others that free will means there can be no way anyone can know what will happen next.
And here I wax philisophical, setting up for Venus in Aquarius in the 9th house for Gemini.
May these changes open the door to peace, health and prosperity for each of you.
