HJ: Eclipses are sacred alignments of celestial bodies which amplify and create specific energetic patterns that have the effect of transforming human consciousness, among other things. As such, they are catalysts for change and growth at all levels of the mind-body-spirit triad. They tend to move us towards higher expressions of ourselves and consciousness — a gentle or sometimes even powerful nudge towards the realization of our true self.
For those who are doing the inner work and achieving heightened levels of conscious awareness, they also allow greater access to the multidimensional consciousness that we all have the power to experience and perceive, once we have developed the skills and sensitivity to do so. These manifestations are subtle and require one to be highly in tune with themselves and the reality they are creating and experiencing. As these abilities increase, the manifestations become less subtle — meaning they become very overt and noticeable. Not many are operating at this level, but it is something that can be somewhat easily cultivated. The main requirements are intention, focus and discipline — a commitment to the process of spiritual awakening.
In that sense, the article below is a wonderful primer on what exactly the experience and unfoldment of the eclipses can teach us about ourselves and help us learn about the process of spiritual awakening. It will help engender a deeper understanding of the higher energetic forces operating at any given time on this plane, and help one to recognize when they are successfully beginning to perceive and access them.
Eclipses of 2013 help us Access the Spaces between Dimensions
By DL Zeta | Celestial Vision
We are in a time of endings and beginnings ushered by a series of eclipses designed to help us gain traction in any stuck areas and take significant steps on our chosen path. The eclipses of 2013 kicked off with the April 25th Scorpio lunar eclipse and will continue this month with the May 9 Taurus solar eclipse and the May 24 Sagittarius lunar eclipse.
Key Eclipse Issues are Abundance and Personal Power
Key issues emphasized in this time center on abundance and personal power. These eclipses ask us to examine our beliefs around these core issues. If we are invested in thought viruses based on lack and scarcity in any way, this will come to the forefront during this time. Issues that may arise encompass a broad spectrum of topics, all of which share the core issue of scarcity. These issues include relationships, health, resources, spiritual insights, inspiration, creativity and much more.
If there is any area of pain, conflict or struggle in one’s life, it can likely be traced back to thoughtforms along these lines: “I don’t have enough,” “options are limited,” or “I am small and limited.” These are indicators that old programming is still in place around issues of abundance and scarcity. If we keep following the thread of a scarcity thoughtform, it eventually translates into thoughts such as “I’m not enough,” “I am nothing,” or “I am unloved.”
Love and Gratitude are Antidotes to the Scarcity Thought Virus
We can counteract these thoughtforms with “I am love,” “I love myself unconditionally,” “I am a wise and empowered being with access to the vast resources of the universe.” Meditate on love whenever these feelings arise. To get in touch with feelings of unconditional love, hold before you the image of someone or something that evokes this unconditional feeling within you. Once you connect strongly with this feeling for a loved one, practice extending it to yourself and all others.
Gratitude can also help break the spell of a thought virus. As you meditate, bring your focus to everything you’re grateful for. Keep expanding the list of things you’re grateful for by finding the silver lining in every situation in your life, both past and present. Unconditional love and gratitude are the two best antidotes to the scarcity thought virus.
The April 25 Lunar Eclipse
The April 25th lunar eclipse occurred at 5° Scorpio and its effects are still being experienced by many. The effects of some eclipses can be felt three months or more prior to an eclipse and for up to a year afterward.
A lunar eclipse occurs during a full moon when the earth moves exactly between the sun and moon, effectively short-circuiting their natural connection. The period of a lunar eclipse is a good time to change destructive emotional patterns. This can be anything from toxic relationships to addictions to sacred wounds we’ve carried with us since childhood.
The energies of a lunar eclipse have a way of magnifying any unresolved emotional issues so we can shine the light of our present-moment awareness on them. Our spiritual communion and insights are intensified during a full moon and even more so during a lunar eclipse, heightening our powers of spiritual perception. Combined, these allow us to heal and release emotional energy held in past traumas.
Our Astrology Chart Depicts the Personal Impact of an Eclipse
Everyone feels the effects of an eclipse differently. The type of impact and its intensity and duration depends on where an eclipse falls in a person’s astrology chart. If an eclipse falls within 3° of a planet or an important point in your chart by conjunction or opposition, it is of special significance to you. The nature of the planet impacted by the eclipse offers clues to the experiences that lie ahead.
For example, in the case of the April 25th lunar eclipse, if you have a planet at 5° Scorpio or within 3° of it, or you have a planet in Taurus which opposes Scorpio within orb of 5°, you will feel the effects of the eclipse more intensely.
Scorpio delves into intense passions, secrets and desires. It is also important to consider what house 5° Scorpio falls in for you. If, for example, 5 degrees Scorpio falls in your 11th house, the upcoming experiences will center on the major themes of the 11th house – friends, social groups, long terms hopes, wishes, ideals and creative goals.
The May 9 Solar Eclipse
A solar eclipse takes place during the new moon when the moon blocks the sun’s energies as it passes directly between the sun and earth. During the month of a solar eclipse, you will likely start noticing the energies of an upcoming eclipse right after the previous new moon and full moon. We are already feeling the energies of the May 9 solar eclipse.
Entering the Space between Dimensions
This solar eclipse falls at 19° Taurus and sits in the doorway of a powerful spiritual portal at Orion’s Belt, which leads to the Great Central Sun. Many will experience an upsurge in spiritual abilities and visions during this time. Those who have planets within 3° of 19° Taurus will feel this most profoundly. For those most powerfully impacted, it may seem that vortexes into universal knowledge spontaneously open for glimpses into spiritual realms. It is possible at such times to feel oneself standing in the spaces between dimensions. Learning to move seamlessly between dimensions allows us to become more effective at bridging consciousness into the new time.
Lucid dreams are more likely to happen when one is under the powerful influence of a solar eclipse. To make the most of this time, set your intentions to embrace whatever comes up during this time and make time to meditate the day of the eclipse. Creating an eclipse ritual for yourself can help you focus the energy for a breakthrough. It is easier during this time to shift to higher-vibrational timelines. This eclipse series will assist many in finding firmer footing in the new time.
Remain Calm during May’s Wild Ride
Due to the eclipse energies, this month is likely to be a time when deeper truths surface and emotions run high. It will be difficult to remain objective as emotional wounds and any issues around which we hold strong emotional energy come front and center. Events in our day to day lives can trigger unhealed emotions that suddenly rise to the surface with power and force. It will help during this time to remain calm and trust that whatever is happening is according to divine plan. These energies by design are helping us gain traction in stuck areas and grow in our spiritual understandings. It should be noted that this is not the time to make life-changing decisions as things may appear different on the other side of the eclipses.
Eclipses are major turning points at both the collective and individual levels. The sign of an eclipse offers clues as to the themes that are due for a change. At the personal level, the planets and houses impacted by an eclipse offer insights into the transformative changes that beacon to us on the road ahead.
