It’s the Shivaratri Indian festival today, and there’s a Solar Eclipse today/tomorrow – we pulled this card – Kali – from the ‘Goddess guidance’ oracle card deck by Doreen Virtue today – and it sounds *very* fitting with what’s going on!
Read what Anandashree Astrology has written a couple of days ago on the topic, we found it very interesting:
[…] Brace yourself for change, because the Solar Eclipse of March 8, 2016 has the power to transform karmic patterns and liberate you from toxic entanglements. If you’ve been clinging to false hope, or can’t seem to cut the cord with someone who’s been draining your energy, this powerful eclipse, which takes place at 5:54p PST, will burn up old stories and attachments that no longer serve you, leaving room for a new book to be written.

Some general info on Shivaratri:
[…] Maha Shivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in reverence of the God Shiva. It is believed to be the day Shiva saved the universe by drinking “haalaahala” the poison that emerged from the churning of the ocean (samudra manthana). While most Indian festivals are celebrated during the day, Shivaratri is celebrated during the night by keeping a “jaagaran” – a night-long vigil as its believed that Lord Shiva saved the universe from darkness and ignorance. This day is also believed to be the day that Shiva was married to the Goddess Parvati. […] source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maha_Shivaratri
Also note that Kali represent’s Shiva’s Shakti – or energy – which can only manifest itself if rooted in its source. In other words, Shiva without Kali is powerless; it’s Kali that propels him into his next cycle of renewal and growth.
