2017 ended very differently than it had started. The world I had known for years was no longer there. The future that I thought I was heading into was no more. In August of 2016, I was brought to the path of the Tower. This would be the beginning of a series of events that has caused a deep transformation within me.Through this initiation, conducted by a group of close ceremonial brothers and sisters, I began this new path. And while I am still piecing together different stories and different narratives surrounding this transition, I thought it good to explore more deeply how the Tower energy can manifest in one’s life.
There are many reasons why this eclipse was important. Not just because the last full solar eclipse was on June 8th, 1918, with the next one being on April 8th, 2024. What this eclipse did was close out the energetic gateway that was opened a few weeks prior. On August 8th 2017 there was a partial lunar eclipse that set in motion a shift both mentally and emotionally. It was visible over Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. This Gateway traversed the sign of Leo and as such brings a strong sense of strength and spirituality.
