Solar eclipses happen once every 18 months and only last for a few minutes… Solar Eclipses happen when the moon lines up directly between the Sun and the Earth, so that the moon casts a shadow onto Earth. This occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned. Such alignment coincides with a new moon indicating the Moon is closest to the ecliptic plane. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured. - Wikipedia
Solar and lunar eclipses have been regarded by mystics and yogis as highly inauspicious for thousands of years. Solar eclipses are major and significant events, but many people do not understand the true meaning of them. We should follow the laws of nature in order to understand how the world functions, regardless of how wise or foolish we think we are. It is as if the laws of nature act as traffic signals for our lives and we must learn to read the stars as a map. Working with the laws of nature allows us to access the intelligent forces that function through them. I believe that the universe is intelligent, and it is governed by certain laws that cannot be changed. Living in contradiction to the laws of nature invites misfortune into our lives. Understanding the laws of nature and their manifestations leads to the development of our consciousness and gives us the tools to overcome weaknesses, so that we can live in a way that is healthy for us and for others.
For thousands of years, humankind has been fascinated by the phenomenon of the Solar Eclipse. Many cultures consider it to be a sacred event. Other cultures regarded it as a bad omen. Each mystery of life has its own spiritual significance, and the solar eclipse is no exception. It is often associated with spiritual phenomena and energy in various cultures. Here are some examples of solar eclipse spiritual meaning.
A Sign Of Change – The solar eclipse is often associated with big changes that will happen in people's lives. Change is an important part of life for everyone. If we want to develop, evolve, and become stronger, we have to work on change every day. A solar eclipse encourages us to make those changes. It is only by letting go of the old habits and emotions that we can welcome new opportunities into our lives.
A Sign Of Encouragement – Solar eclipses inspire us all. Solar eclipses motivate us to achieve new goals and to dream big. The vibration of this phenomenon also aids us in achieving those goals. So, don't just make a wish when you see a shooting star, but also during a solar eclipse.
A Sign Of Energy Increase – Everything in the world is made of energy, including the earth and us. During a solar eclipse, this energy is enhanced significantly. Most psychics, mediums, empaths, and other gifted individuals feel this increase in vibration and energy.
A Sign Of The End – With the darkening of the sky caused by the eclipse, many people thought they were witnessing the apocalypse. Mostly in ancient times. But even today. With every eclipse, there are rumors about The End! Well, the truth is that it symbolizes the end. Not the end of the world, but the end of a part of your life or the ending of a cycle. It might be the end of a project that you have been working on for a long time.
These are just a few examples of the potential spiritual meanings behind a Solar Eclipse. However, don't overlook the fact that the eclipse is stunning phenomenon. It does not happenall too often, but frequently enough for us to stop being afraid of it. We should embrace the changes and shifts it brings. You should set a good goal for yourself before the beautiful light of the sun returns.
There is no better time to meditate and fill yourself with the love of the universe (or Source). Through meditation and prayer, you'll be able to rebalance your heart, mind, and soul and truly connect with the Divine and your Higher Self. This is the most ideal time to meditate in order to create attunement and alignment to the source of your being. Above all, this is a very beneficial time for meditation and working with sacred sound (Naam).
The solar eclipse offers our planet and ourselves the chance to transform. During the eclipse, vibrating sacred sound in a group greatly helps to ease the suffering of many and to heal our world. The Divine has provided this priceless opportunity by opening a portal to our inner world. This is a way to wash away some of our karma and rid ourselves of personal darkness. Let yourself see who you truly are. Those souls who vibrate or listen to Naam at the time of the eclipse receive blessings from the higher Universe. Vibrate Naam so that you may open your mind and your heart to the touch of the Divine, and increase the outpouring of Light at this spiritually important time.
Do Eclipses Have a Positive or Negative Spiritual Influence?
We live in a time of powerful transformation. In other words, there are countless significant time periods, high energy gateways, as well as astrologically observable events throughout the year that act as markers or key nodes on our paths, opening doors to transformation that just need our attention.
Both solar and lunar eclipses are among these highly significant times.
Spiritually speaking, an Eclipse Cycle serves a key role, and that is triggering change and transformation.
There is something about eclipses that reveals old patterns, insecurities, limitations, and fears. When you become aware of these Shadow traits within and around you, you then have the power and opportunity to heal them so you can let them go.
With this in mind, an eclipse cycle is an invaluable aide on your transformation journey. They shine a spotlight on where you're out of alignment. As a result, you can transform and shift into complete harmony and coherence with your Higher Self, and the greatest possibilities for your life.
Illuminating your Shadow traits is not always fun or easy (and can be downright painful and challenging at times). This is why throughout history Eclipses have often been feared and even believed to have harmful spiritual side effects.
Eclipse Spiritual Meaning
Astrologically speaking, the sun represents the conscious mind. The sun is associated with life force energy, warmth, light and creativity. The moon, which reflects the light of the sun at night represents our emotions, and subconscious.
We can gain a profound insight into our emotions and subconscious patterns during a Solar Eclipse when the sun's light is blocked out by the moon. While it is easier to revel in lower frequency emotional patterns that may arise, Solar eclipses provide good opportunities for reflection, healing, and transmutation of lower frequency patterns. Solar eclipses, which occur during the New Moon phase, enhance the positive energy associated with "new beginnings."
Lunar eclipses are visible during the Full Moon, revealing what needs to be released, completed, or let go. This can sometimes be abrupt like losing a job, or breaking up with a partner. By staying present and observing the changes within or around you, you can claim the opportunity to become aware of what you truly desire. What has been on track, and how can you now release the old energies to embrace this change in order to evolve, transform, and grow?
In a way Eclipses are like cosmic catalysts that trigger endings and push you to take a step towards the new beginnings you may have been resisting. You can navigate Eclipse energy with ease if you're open, willing, and allowing. The only time old patterns become painful is when you are resisting them as they begin to fall away while you hold on.
Let go and allow necessary changes to unfold in your life!
