Total Solar Eclipse – Opportunity to Activate a New Timeline

by Cayelin K Castell

NOTE new insights a few paragraphs down.

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017 is the first total solar eclipse to cross the continental United States from coast to coast in nearly 100 years the last one was in 1918 and also passed over the Bahamas. (Here is the 2017 Eclipse Map)

This is also the first time a Total Solar Eclipse is passing exclusively over the USA since 1257, a good 760 years ago and 519 years before the United States became a country. NASA eclipse Map of 1257.

There is a total Solar Eclipse April 08, 2024 crossing Mexico, Canada, and Central America – as well as the USA but not from Coast to Coast. Map of 2024 Eclipse HERE

This Video by Dale O’Brien covers eclipses past, present and future over the United States. So worth watching – as this talks about an earthquake 3 months after the 1811 Eclipse that went across parts of the USA and many other US eclipse related events that followed along with other eclipses across the United States and historic events connected to that.

January 25, 2316 is the next time a Total Solar Eclipse exclusively passes over the the USA. 299 years from now.

This August 21 Total Solar Eclipse is part of a Saros series that features 77 eclipses and this is number 22.
This Saro series started with partial solar eclipse on January 4, 1639, with the first total Solar Eclipses in June 29, 1927 lasting until September 9, 2648. The series ends with a partial eclipse April 17, 3009. The longest eclipse will occur on June 25, 2522, with a maximum duration of totality of 7 minutes, 12 seconds.
Some of the eclipses in this series have occurred in 1909, 1927, 1945, 1963, 1981 and 1999. In 1999 President Bill Clinton was impeached by congress but not the senate, in 1981 we had the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan. In 1963 we had the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In 1945 we had the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well as the death of the sitting president Franklin Delano Roosevelt and in 1909 an assassination attempt of President William Taft. In 1927 the Deadliest School Shooting in the United States Killed 38 Children and 4 Adults.

Totality
Totality falls along a specific line and you must be somewhere inside that line of totality to have the total Solar Eclipse experience. Otherwise, for those in the United States watching the eclipse it is only possible to see part of the Eclipse and how much you see depends on where you are.

Research shows that the Eclipse path often creates accelerated changes in the places the path of totality passes through. Regimes fall, governments go through major change, extreme weather patterns occur, sometimes earthquakes happen, and other major collective changes that are often unexpected take place. This is why it is powerful to connect and consciously align (as much as possible) with the intent of the eclipse energy, as that helps us to ride the wave of changes in the most beneficial way possible.

What Time is it Really? The Seasons of Our Lives Through the Lens of The Shamanic Timeline

By Cayelin K Castell, Inspired by Daniel Giamario and outlined by Mary Kern

The Earth has seasons as she travels around the Sun. There are four main recognized seasons, Spring when new life is growing and blossoming, Summer when the Earth is flourishing and abundant, Autumn when it is time to harvest and store up for Winter and of course Winter when life seems to be more still and inner as it prepares for new birth in the Spring.

Venus in Aries Archetypal Integration begins March 31, 2017

The archetypal expression that most describes Venus in Aries is the Warrior Amazon. However, back in 1995 a primary archetype Shamanic Astrology connected to Aries was the Wild Woman. What follows is an article I wrote in 2001 describing Venus in  Aries from the perspective of the essence of the Wild Woman. Having Venus in Aries myself, I found myself identifying with the Wild Woman then and perhaps even more so now. Here is what I wrote then….

The definition of Wild in the case of the Wild Woman means: a natural, unrestrained life or state; occurring, growing or living in a natural state; intensely enthusiastic; amazing or extraordinary. The healthy Wild Woman lives from a place of pure innocence and knowing, unrestrained by the limiting rules and judgments of the current culture. She knows when she is connected to her inner sense of self or her true self, and from this place she spontaneously acts in a natural and supportive way.
