The Eclipse Precipice

The changes wrought in us by Lady Eclipsia playing on repeat can leave us feeling all alone. We stand at the precipice anew, our wings still sticky and our fear still churning, as we contemplate taking the next leap of faith. In this strange new landscape we are not who we once were. We have…

Eclipse Fatigue

You know, there is such a thing as eclipse fatigue. Barely acknowledged, as we all take deep shaky breaths and steel ourselves for the next hurdle in a world demanding constant forward motion. This is the kind of bone tiredness and lack of fucks borne only by the unholy eclipse rollercoaster. Felt as keenly by…

The Pointy End of Eclipsia

It is said by far more twee folks than me darklings, that if you are going through hell keep going. It strikes me that the same can be said for eclipsia, which has well and truly arrived. And with the kind of cracking clang that has upended the lives of so many in my spheres…

Divine Disruption

Although not yet deep in eclipsia, our divine disruption has begun. Eclipses are traditional harbingers of change. They ripple in every direction through our lives, delivering all the tenses all at once by pinging our past, present and future. They are divinely designed to make us uncomfortable. They show us what has become untenable in…
