Imagine this. You’re going about your business when all of a sudden, in the daylight hours, the sky starts to darken. The air becomes still. Animals start to shuffle about, dogs give a low growl. You look to the sky and a disk is moving across the life-giving Sun and then darkness prevails. Imagine how frightened you would be if you didn’t know what was happening! Throughout history people have turned to astrologers to find out what is going on and so I am here to tell you just that.
Eclipses herald times of significant change and movement and have been noted and studied since humans looked skyward. Records show that the Chinese calculated eclipses 3500 years ago and the Babylonians followed. Today, with our sophisticated equipment and measuring devices we can get pretty detailed about the whys, wherefores, and how-to’s of eclipses, and still the mystery remains.
Eclipses have been associated with major cataclysmic weather-related events like earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes as well as human-activated events like bombings, wars, and your basic bad-behavior plundering. Eclipses have also heralded major scientific and evolutionary breakthroughs. Things are always changing on Planet Earth and during an eclipse changes are triggered. Manifestation of the triggers can be seen three to six months after the actual eclipse. Wheels are set in motion and then, poof!, one day you are somewhere else, thinking new things, trying new things, morphing into new parts of yourself.
Where will an eclipse impact you in your personal life? Look to the sign and degree of the eclipse. Then look at your chart and see where that degree falls. Look at the house where the eclipse falls as that will determine the area of your life that will be most greatly impacted. Look to see what other planets are involved in the eclipse as their energy will add significantly to the story of change, movement, letting go, and release.
An eclipse is a shift in the vibrational alignment between the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon creating an analogous shift in the alignment of our own energies. We are not only on Earth but of Earth. What she experiences so do we, each in our own way, according to the constellation of energies in our own unique charts.
A SOLAR ECLIPSE occurs at the NEW MOON when the Moon and the Sun are at the same degree in the same sign. The moon is in between the Earth and the Sun. From our perspective here on Earth it looks like the Moon is blotting out the Sun. Powerful time of reprogramming your essential life force to align more correctly with your personal growth and evolution. Is your behavior out in the world synchronous with how you perceive yourself to be?
A LUNAR ECLIPSE occurs at the FULL MOON when the Earth is in between the Sun and the Moon. The Earth blocks out the light of the Sun reflected onto the Moon so the Moon, though full, is darkened, sometimes appearing red. If it’s a partial eclipse it looks like a bite was taken out of the Moon (whoever said the Moon is not made of cheese could be very much mistaken). Very eerie and so cool! Lunar eclipses ask us to go the emotional realms and see what changes need to made there to bring about the desired balance of energies.
Use the powerful force of the eclipses to propel yourself into new territory. Follow eclipses in your own chart and see for yourself their effect and impact on your life.
Born at an eclipse? The planetary energies activated by the eclipse at the time of your birth will significantly influence you all the days of your life.
Eclipses occur in pairs, 2 weeks apart. Occasionally there will be 3 eclipses in a row, 2 weeks separating each.
Even if the path of an eclipse does not cross the area of the world where you are living you will still feel the effects of the eclipse.
