For aeons the solar eclipse has been known to carry an omen of drastic change, ending of old cycles, and some may even say death. A solar eclipse happens when the moon is set between the Earth and the Sun. To those on Earth, it looks like the sun is being blacked out, causing it to emit a ring-like hue. The eclipse is known in the spiritual world to be a time where portals to other dimensions open up and the veil that separate realities disintegrates. Although eclipses have a bad reputation for being ominous, there are actually some very positive things that can be gained during this powerful time!
The next eclipse will occur June 10th, 2021. This will also be a new moon in the tropical sign of Gemini. New moons are excellent for planting the seed for new projects, building new relationships, and setting intentions for the new moon cycle. Since this will also be a solar eclipse, this new moon will be activated by an even greater cosmic energy! Many people have been feeling the side effects of the eclipses since the lunar eclipse Super Full moon on May 26, 2021.
Many of you may be feeling the effects of the eclipses heavily. Do not be alarmed, this is quite normal, especially if you are empathic or hypersensitive to the environment. These symptoms may include fatigue, body aches, insomnia, restless thoughts, mental fog, headaches, shortness of breath, irregular periods, mood swings, irritability, lucid dreams, and sudden fluctuation of body temperature. Do not fret, there are ways to manage the adverse side effects, and utilize this sacred time for your benefit.
One of the things you do NOT want to do during this eclipse season is push yourself beyond your known limits. If you are a hard-worker, overachiever, or over-thinker, then this especially applies to you. The eclipse, combined with the current mercury retrograde and Saturn retrograde wants you to take this time to rest, reflect, and recuperate. Your work, job, and business will still be there when this is all over (unless it is not meant for you); but you must take care of yourself during this time. You will need lots of nature, sunlight, water, meditation, yoga, and warm salt baths. This is an excellent time to detox, cleanse the body of toxins, clear the mind of harmful thoughts, and to cleanse the heart of any ill-feelings. The cosmic energy shift is weighing in the balance, encouraging you to look within and ask yourself, what in your life needs to change, die, or be transmuted into something more beneficial for your highest good.
Humanity as a collective is shifting and changing along with the paradigm being ushered in during the new dawn. Children being born around the eclipse time will come into this world to be master teachers, healers, and pioneers! If you are a parent to any of these powerful babies coming in at this time, The Great Spirit has chosen YOU to be their guide in this life; this is not to be taken lightly. With great power, comes great responsibility!
For the next few months, there will be a quickening causing big change to happen on the microcosm and macrocosm. Some examples of microcosmic change would be personal changes in your life, such as a new relationship or marriage, a break-up or divorce, a pregnancy or a death, a new home, moving out, resigning from a job, or starting a new career path.
On the Macrocosmic level, changes that will occur are environmental shifts (earthquakes, hurricanes, huge storms), political upheaval, social paradigm shifts, worldwide rebellions, fall of great kingdoms, changes in human affairs, and global awakening moments. These changes have been building up for a while now, but they are coming to a climax between the summer solstice and autumn equinox. Everyone and everything will be affected by this eclipse and cosmic shift! If you try to avoid or ignore this energy, then you will be doing yourself a huge disservice!
The best thing to do at this time is to create and find simple ways to find your happy place. This could be drawing, writing, singing, dancing, painting, and whatever else helps you to express yourself in a productive creative manner. Remember, energy will be intense and high at this time, so the best thing to do is to channel that energy in a productive way, if you don't, then that energy will only work against you. When we create we help to channel emotions (energy-in- motion). When we stop creating, we cause energy to be stagnant within our vessel, thus causing illness and dis-ease within our auric body.
Strengthen your aura during this time with grounding, putting your feet in the grass, meditating by a body of flowing water, sun bathing, epsom salt baths, and listening to binaural beats during your sleep. Stay hydrated, eat light (avoid heavy meals and junk food), and wear your protective crystals on you to fortify your auric forcefield.
This Solar eclipse is an excellent time to release and let go of people, places, and things that no longer serve your highest good. The universe will be revealing to you truths that you have been blind to or purposefully ignoring. Make sure you heed the signs and warnings of the energies that are causing your detriment and deterring you from your true destiny. Nobody can live your life for you, so you have to take back your power, analyze what isn't working, and move accordingly to do what's best for you! At the end of the day, this is your personal spiritual journey, nobody can tell you how to live it. If you are living a life that is not for you, you will constantly be faced with roadblocks to redirect you to where you need to be.
Be kind to yourself a this time. Show yourself lots of love, care, and affection. Nurture yourself like a baby, because in essence, at this particular time, you are still a babe in its cocoon, awaiting to emerge as the beautiful butterfly you were destined to be!
