Do you ever wonder if rare planetary events have an impact on you? We are approaching this summer's series of Eclipses. Eclipses happen on average four times per year - two solar and two lunar. Eclipses occur when on the New Moon and Full Moon, the orbits of the Sun, Moon, and Earth, line up in three-dimensional space. So, what does this mean for you?
What are Eclipses?
When we have a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth's shadow blocks the sunlight from hitting the Moon. On a Lunar Eclipse, half of the world can see it as the shadow of the Earth stretches far into space.
When we have a Solar Eclipse, the Moon blocks the sunlight from hitting the Earth, but this happens in a very narrow and concentrated point. Few ever see a Solar Eclipse in their lifetime, unless they intentionally go to where it is happening. The phenomenon of an Eclipse illustrates the amazing architecture of our solar system, especially the Solar Eclipse.
Astrologically speaking, Eclipses show unusual and supernatural power. Indian mythology speaks of a demon that swallows the Sun and Moon during the Eclipses. Those demons, and the Lunar Nodes, the intersection of the sensitive points, are portals into other dimensions and show where our karma accelerates quickly.
Ponder this: what is the possibility that two arbitrary celestial bodies would look exactly the same size - to appear to fit one inside the other - based on our vantage point here on Earth? What are the odds that a huge fireball, (the Sun) would look exactly the same size to us as the Moon?
The reason for this refers to the very essence of life itself and the sacred vibration of the number 108. Indian mysticism revolves around the number 108. The origin of this sacred number comes from the relationship of the Sun, Moon and Earth. The Sun and the Moon look exactly the same size to us because of the symmetry of scale and distance.
Essentially, you can fit 108 moons between Earth and the Moon and 108 suns between the Earth and the Sun. The measurement between scale and distance is identical. This is the sacred vibration that creates life. If it were not for the Sun and the Moon there would be no life on Earth. In more enlightened times humanity was more connected to this reality.
Using Eclipse Energy
Pay close attention to your feelings and a sense of hope and optimism that floods your heart. Give more time to ponder your ideas and inspirations.
Notice and reflect on how you feel at the exact moment the Eclipses are happening. Whether you can see them or not, the Earth is being affected and is in a powerful vortex at that time. These are great moments for meditation and reflection upon the nature of the Sun and the nature of the Moon.
