A solar eclipse (as seen from the planet Earth) occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and when the Moon fully or partially blocks (“occults”) the Sun. While today’s partial solar eclipse will not be visible in India, there are a few aspects of this eclipse one must know.
Positive and Negative
In symbolic language each situation contains both its positive and negative aspects.
The positive aspect of an eclipse is very powerful because it creates a reflection of ourselves in the Universe as well as the notion where we feel a connection with our inner self.
The Sun is related to our day to day manifestation. So, when we talk about the solar energy, we talk about the masculine energy; the energy of manifestation.
On the other hand, the moon is a symbol of the night. Its energy relates to the feminine energy. And feminine is related to interiorization or going within.
Because of the involvement of the moon, the night becomes very important as it is related also to the unconscious aspects of life, to the metaphysical dimensions of who we are.
At that precise moment of the total eclipse, people are profoundly in connection with their sensitivity. There also arises a realisation of the importance of our emotions, our thoughts, and the energy that we have within ourselves, though not everyone is conscious of it. But it does create a form of meditation and a form of connection with something that is bigger than them.
Since this is the last eclipse of 2018, it is a good time to revisit the total solar eclipse that took place in the United States at this time last year.
This eclipse brought forth some realisations for the country:
Rediscover its essence
Overconfidence of the US:
Time to go within
The US has turned its face away from interiorization. Every country has a personality and that of the US gives it a lot confidence and a leadership role in world affairs. But it is also a society based on materialism.
Now, because of the leadership of Donald Trump as the President, who is very focused on his own ego and his own success, the country too has seen this philosophy being followed. But because the total eclipse involved the conjunction of the Sun and the Moon, it reflects the profound realisation that the country needs to go more within and not just look at things on the surface.
Exposing the dark side
This also exposes the dark side of the US. One of the facets is the racism which we are beginning to see on the streets. This is a sign that people will need to develop more of their spirituality. It begins with questioning the notions of success, the meaning of money and also the people in power.
Every eclipse touches our perception of being and so it is always very good for a reflection about our lives and about who we are in the world and where we are going.
