2017 Solar Eclipse

Solar Eclipse 2017

On Monday, August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States, darkening skies from the West coast all the way to the East coast. On this day, most of the world will turn their attention to the stars and witness a truly – once in a lifetime, astronomical event where the Moon will pass directly between the Sun and the Earth, casting a long shadow upon the Earth’s surface.  Those along the path of totality, (which stretches from the Oregon coast to the South Carolina coast here in the U.S.), will experience a short window of time where the moon will appear to block out the Sun, turning the daytime sky dark and revealing the Sun’s brilliant corona along with several neighboring stars and planets.  The last total solar eclipse, visible from coast to coast across the country was almost 100 years ago on June 8, 1918.

Those of us, who will be outside the path of totality, will still be able to view a partial solar eclipse, where the moon will cover a portion of the sun’s disk.  Visit  https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in.html to find out what time to watch the solar eclipse from your area.


Why this eclipse is a big deal?

This visible meeting of the sun and moon is a compelling opportunity to turn our attention outward to  the celestial bodies, who are essential to our human experience.  From a Shamanic perspective everything in the universe has consciousness.  The stars, moon and planets are conscious beings who not only provide the physical conditions necessary for us to exist and survive, but also influence us and assist us on our paths towards spiritual maturity. Shamanic practice involves developing an awareness of the consciousness of all things.  We can apply this when building a therapeutic relationship with our physical body as well as  applying  this when cultivating relationships with the celestial bodies. The study of astrology has helped me to connect with these celestial bodies more deeply and with more appreciation. It has been essential to my growing understanding of life – of the widely varying circumstances that different human beings are born into and must learn to navigate while here on earth.

On the day of the solar eclipse we are operating with more congruency between our will and our emotional nature.  This is an opportune time to meditate.  Meditation is a kind of medicine that strongly connects us with the source, with these celestial beings and all of the universe.  By getting grounded and resting in the dimensions of our own inner silence, the energetic frequencies within our mind and body harmonize with the frequencies of nature, and we tune into a vast sea of cosmic energy.  We can choose to manifest positive new beginnings from this solar eclipse bringing forth amazing adventures, ultimately basking in the fulfillment of our own unique potential.  While being open to change and not overly attached to specific outcomes, we swim with the universal current and not against it, we enter into symbiotic relationship with the cosmos and become part of the creative and expansive flow of the universe.

This is a powerful time to be alive. Now more than ever, it’s important that our intuition and awareness are always being strengthened!

The yogis also consider eclipse events to be important happenings. They are particularly important for the area of the world that the eclipse effects the most. In this case, that is the USA. According to yogic science, sadhana (spiritual practice) done during an eclipse window is 1,000 times more powerful than during ordinary times. So in that sense, this is a very big deal!

Remember, LOVE LIGHT is victorious!
