Understanding the Transiting Eclipses
Eclipses happen every six months, and when they do, they come in pairs! There is the Lunar Eclipse and the Solar Eclipse. The Lunar Eclipse reflects the Full Moon cycle and the Solar Eclipse the New Moon cycle. As Eclipses can only happen during a Full or New Moon. However; when an eclipse joins a Full or New Moon, it turns up the volume on the Lunar energy, giving it additional amplification recognitions within our current realities. The more sensitive you are the more you can feel the transit vibrations from the Moon, allowing you the ability to tap into ‘mother natures’ rhythmic cycles from a planetary perspective, from a higher perspective.
From a vibrational standpoint, Eclipses allow us a unique ability to purge that which does not serve us. They aid in ‘cleaning’ up our own psychological, emotional, mental, spiritual and sometimes physical garbage, in order to make room for what we desire to manifest within our lives.
Specifically, the Lunar Eclipse allows for an amplification of alignment through the process of ‘releasing’, removing the dead wood from our portfolio of life. Most of the time when it comes to ‘releasing’ that which does not serve, our human nature gets in the way and tries to hold on to it. If you try to hold onto something that the Universe believes no longer suits your needs, then emotional confrontation with the self kicks in and it can become painful. However; if you have grown enough within yourself and understand that you need to let go in order to create, then it is not painful, for we understand that in life, there comes a time when things must end or ‘die’. This incorporates the fundamental understandings within the cycle of life, and the process of creation. For with the Lunar Eclipse it allows us to look deep into the shadows of our psychological and emotional natures and illuminate what lives within the darkness. It will reveal your hidden motivations and fears allowing for healing to take place. For that which lives within the darkness can only be healed when it is revealed by light.
The Solar Eclipse allows for the alignment process as well, placing us on a soul aligned path. This alignment based on what the Soul views as the best possible solution to any life event, from a higher perspective. Many people also have issues with this energy, because when you are immersed within your own life and its events, you can not see that maybe the universe has a better plan…and this eclipse allows for the implementation of the greater plan, which may get in the way of our ‘human’ plans, thoughts or ideas that we have created. Know that the Universal Forces can see a better, long term, big picture then us little humans. For they have the ‘birds eye view’ perspective on the outcome of any and all events. Even though we have the ability to create from free will…they can see all sides of the potentials and possibilities of our Free Will choices within this little human existence.
On an overall energy, the astrological sign in which the eclipses take place, allow for the characteristics of that specific Eclipse. You can narrow down the energy to the degree as well, and combine the lesson from the metaphoric Sabian Symbol for a deeper understanding in what requires alignment.
How Do Eclipses Affect Everyone Individually???
When we look to our own personal natal charts, look to find where the degree of the eclipse falls within your own charts. The House that it falls in is the 'area of life' that requires a cleanse and/or alignment, if there are any conjunctions within your own chart (meaning another planetary energy sharing the same degree) then there will be a direct impact within your life, other aspects within the chart to the degree can also create either a harmonious aspect or in-harmonious aspect to the eclipse energy allowing for easy or hard clearing.
It is interesting that sometimes eclipses can work their energy for some time, meaning not only are we focusing a clearing and aligning for six months, but sometimes the next set of eclipses also share a similar vibration to the set prior. Pulling in a larger cycle of completion or re-alignment.
