Total Eclipse of the Heart
On Aug. 21, 2017, here in North America, we’ll all be under the rare spell of a Total Solar Eclipse. This is an INTENSE event; both on a cosmic and energetic level.
I know the majority of my clients have been feeling intense emotions, feeling disconnected, having big changes & even a little chaos as well as energy levels feeling almost manic; lows & highs.
Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines a Total Solar Eclipse of the sun in which the moon completely hides the solar surface or photosphere and thereby cuts off all direct rays of sunlight from the observer. Here on Earth, we have both Lunar & Solar Eclipses. A Lunar Eclipse can only happen with a Full Moon however. We have Eclipses because the Moon orbits the Earth once a month, and eclipses happen if it lines up exactly with the Earth and the Sun. Solar eclipses occur at New Moon, when the Moon is between Earth and the Sun. Eclipses do not take place every month because the orbits of the Moon and Earth are tilted at an angle. However, total solar eclipses are rare at any particular location because totality exists only along a narrow path on the Earth’s surface traced by the Moon’s shadow or umbra. An eclipse is a natural phenomenon & we are about to experience it!
It’s been 99 years since a total solar eclipse crossed the contiguous United States from coast to coast. According to a recent calculation, there’s enough parking in the path of totality to accommodate 150 million viewers. Will you be one of them?Don’t let “the path of totality” confuse you. It basically means the moon’s shadow. In order to see a total solar eclipse, you need to be within the moon’s 70-mile-wide shadow. On August 21, it will stretch from Oregon through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Residents in these 13 states basically won the solar eclipse lottery and they’re celebrating accordingly.
If you can’t make it to the path of totality, you can still catch a partial eclipse—where the moon covers part of the sun—from anywhere in the Lower 48. According to some scientists, animals and plants within the path of totality will also be observing the event. Birds, hippos and even baboons have been recorded behaving as though it’s night during a total solar eclipse, even though the greatest duration of darkness they can experience—if approximately located at a certain point along the path of totality—is less than three minutes. Some botanists even argue that this brief period of darkness interrupts and alters photosynthesis in certain plants.
If you are lucky enough & plan on being in the path of totality, like myself! You will be able to see and feel the Moon & Sun dance with magic in the air & glittering streams of light beaming!
If you are not going to be in the path of totality, not to worry! The energy shift & vibration will still be available to you! You can be anywhere on the planet & still feel the effects of these energies. So make sure you have your seatbelt on!Many people are quite sensitive to these energetic shifts and can easily feel them. Especially Energetic Empaths, Healers or if you work closely with Crystals & Gemstones or any type of Energy work really. If you’re not feeling it… that may be a signal to you to get under the sun & moon, go barefoot & dig your toes into Mother Earth & get grounded and connected!
A POWERFUL time to:
- Plant your seeds for a big change, because you know that’s coming!
- Set your intention & be mindful of your inner voice, remembering we are our life’s creators
- Open up your 3rd Eye, clairvoyance & divination will be amplified!
- Balance your yin energy; our feminine, intuitive, right brain energy
Now more than ever, this is an important time to be mindful of your thoughts & inner conversations. We will all be feeling the effects of the total solar eclipse for the next couple of weeks. It’s a perfect time to use this to your advantage & manifest the life of your dreams!
It would be a wonderful time to incorporate affirmations during this time as well. I love affirmations of self love & abundance!
You can also Solar Charge items to carry the benefit of this rare energy!
If you have particular Crystals or Gemstones you like to work with, I’d suggest setting them outside during the eclipse. This will allow them to be “charged” with this energy!
You can even set out fresh water under the solar eclipse & drink up all the “charged” energy for days to come!
All four giant planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) can experience eclipses, since they all have substantial moons and the Sun appears small from them. Eclipses are most common on Jupiter, because its moons orbit in the same plane with the Sun.
