Eclipse Pointers

Hey folks…eclipse season is here. To gracefully move through eclipse season, read on. 

Eclipses happen in pairs, within two weeks of one another, usually twice a year (but not always and sometimes we experience three eclipses in a row). Eclipses occur when new a new or full moon falls near the lunar nodes. A solar eclipse always occurs at the new moon; likewise, a lunar eclipse can only occur when the moon is full.  Eclipse season can be emotionally bumpy, and in that vein here are some pointers I’ve assembled over the years.

Eclipses move us along our evolutionary path, often with huge signposts, other times with a whisper – and always with an element of surprise. Imagine you’ve been focused on redecorating several rooms in your house and you’ve been stuffing the attic with all the things you’ve moved in the process. “Suddenly” the roof begins to bow. But this is not really a surprise because out of the corner of your eye you’ve noticed the bulging attic yet because you’ve been so focused on other things the attic just wasn’t a priority. Now the attic demands your urgent attention. [Read more…]
