“A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon.”~Wikipedia
According to the Farmer’ Almanac “What is unusual about this month’s lunar eclipse is that it is the first of a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. Called a “tetrad,” such a series of four total eclipses in a row is not an overly rare event. The last such series happened in the years 2003 and 2004, and it will occur seven more times in the current century.”
What does this mean for you? Eclipses magnify and greatly amplify whatever we are empowering in our lives. This includes our creations, thoughts, feelings, words, actions, beliefs, and memories. Eclipses are wonderful opportunities for growth and transformation. Think back to 2003/2004 when the last tetrad occurred. What grew and manifested? What changed?
Eclipses are powerful energy boosters. Whether we are bringing our creations to light or eclipsing out what no longer serves us, we all have an opportunity for profound growth during this powerful time. This is a great time to let go of old patterns and to focus, empower and strengthen our spiritual selves. As we bring in more of who we are we, in essence, re-invent ourselves and change our human actions and experience.
The Sun, Earth and Moon will be exactly aligned and so too must we align with ourselves and our personal, spiritual, and creative goals. During this powerful planetary alignment, take time to align with who you are, your place on this beautiful earth and all you wish to give to the world. We are all here to make a difference and the eclipse marks yet another profound transformation in the world and within ourselves.
Full Moons allow us to reap the benefits or consequences of earlier actions and this one is no different. If you’re reaping the benefits, enjoy! If you’re experiencing the consequences in a not so positive way, make sure to bring in lots of forgiveness so you don’t get stuck in it for any length of time. Acknowledge, forgive, let go and move on. With the powerful eclipses at work, things will shift in the blink of an eye.
OH SHIFT! Things are a changin….
Yes things are changing rapidly as they have in the past couple of years. Everything is cyclical and these tetra of eclipses simply give us a chance to enrich our lives. They give us another time for transformation within. They present us with another opportunity to be more of who we are as we put our dreams, passions and creations into motion.
Take time to enjoy the eclipse and your own energy. Be aware of what you give power to. If it doesn’t serve you, let it go and “power up” not only what serves you but what brings you joy as it comes alive and manifests in your life. POWER UP!~Shine Your Light Debbie
