From 10:34 pm on Sunday January 20th until 12:16 am on Monday January 21, there is a total lunar eclipse that can bring monumental change to our lives.
With the blotting out of the Moon, the eclipse represents a time where we can reset our emotions and clear away any emotional baggage of the previous six months. If we take time to reflect, the shadowy period of the eclipse can be auspicious because it allows us to connect to our inner divine light.
A lunar eclipse opens a doorway to our innermost self, presenting a perfect opportunity for soul-searching, personal reflection, spiritual contemplation and meditation. In short, by temporarily darkening the light of the luminaries of Sun and Moon, the eclipse empowers us to seek our own light and elevate our spiritual awareness—and few things in life are more important than that! Eclipses are so powerful because they bring to light the issues that need to be healed.
This eclipse is especially powerful, as the Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, reflecting our innermost nature. This feminine, yin sign is sensitive and perceptive. Its keyword is “I feel”. The Moon rules our very roots—motherhood, the home, family and happiness of heart. The entire foundation of society is based upon these roots. It is how we are nurtured and recharged in order to have the strength to go out in the world and fulfill our karma. It relates to the mother who carries her child. She knows the feeling of two heartbeats, two souls in one body. She feels that closeness.
The lesson during this eclipse is that although it is fine to feel, it is more important what we do with our feelings, how we use them. Do we use our feelings to get what we want? Or do we use our sense of reason as well, so we can channel our heightened sensitivity to work for ourselves and others? Does our super-sensitivity create drama and chaos in our life or are we able to realize what the yogis refer to as Kama Muta, Sanskrit for moved by love?
So this eclipse is an excellent time to evoke our emotion to be moved and touched. We can peel away the protective layers we have erected around our heart in order to feel the deep and tender emotion of love.
