3 things to know about the eclipse on Sunday And Monday:
- “Under exert yourself” on eclipse days
If you are exercising, walking, practicing yoga or qi gong or any sport on an eclipse day – take extra care to ‘under exert’ yourself. Going for a walk is fine, it’s just that our electrolytes and energy are not as strong on eclipse days and you will do better long-term to have a gentle ‘work-out’ or physical practice.
- It’s a great day for spiritual practices. Because the day is NOT about making a “worldly impact” or making money, the focus of the energy of the day is inward and provides great windows for spiritual evolution. It is not a day to ‘set intentions’ or seed your dreams into the Universe (contrary to what many mainstream messages might be out there). Vedic Astrology in its 7,000 year history helps illuminate your soul path – and eclipse days are when the forces of Sun or Moon are blocked-out and eclipsed; these are not days to ‘seed’ or start something which you want to grow in the world.
Creating peace and equanimity is the main focus of eclipse days. Some eclipse days can be challenging if your personal vedic chart is lighting up houses where you have many planets – or they could be quieter for 18 months or up to 3 years before your life gets a little more stimulus for change.
The eclipses bring change into our lives – and often these are “good stresses” like marriage, buying houses, moving, having children, and significant turns in life – like healing through an illness or divorce.
- Don’t View an Eclipse
In Vedic Astrology, it is NOT recommended to look at an eclipse. The short answer to why is that it can anchor more turbulent or difficult karmas in your life for the next 6 months.
The eclipse will be visible from much of Europe, Much of Asia, Australia, North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic. The effects of the eclipse will be stronger on the places and people where the eclipse is visible. If the eclipse is not visible where you are – then still notice, or try to meditate or find quiet during the peak eclipse times for your time zone.
