Incredible Spiritual Meanings of Lunar Eclipse
What is the Lunar Eclipse?
A lunar eclipse is when the moon orbits into the earth's shadow. In a solar eclipse, the darkest part of the earth’s shadow is called the umbra, with the lighter parts called the penumbra. During a lunar eclipse, the spectrum of light is blocked by the world towards the moon, and only a red wavelength goes through, causing the moon to take on a reddish-orange glow. That’s why lunar eclipses are sometimes called “Blood Moons”.
Lunar eclipses can also be divided into two types. A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon and sun are on opposite sides of the earth, and a partial lunar eclipse occurs when only part of the Earth's shadow covers the moon.
“Blood Moons” happen when there are total eclipses. In some parts of the world, people can easily see every stage of the lunar eclipse, especially in much of Central and South America, Western Europe and Africa, and most of North America. No special equipment is needed to view a lunar eclipse; a dark environment is enough for the best viewing conditions.
Lunar Eclipse Spiritual Meaning
In astrology, the spiritual aspects of the moon represent our deep emotional tides. Astrologists believe an eclipse is a life-changing time to seek change and usher in evolution. During a lunar eclipse, your emotions and subconscious patterns will be revealed when the moon is covered in the earth's shadow. During this event, pathways are shown that tell you what to let go of and what changes you should make.
1. Letting Go of the Past
The energy potential of a lunar eclipse is at its peak during a total eclipse. It is a quantum opportunity to cleanse your emotional waters by releasing deep-seated wounds and moving beyond old pains by transcending your negative patterns. During this time, eliminating anything you have outgrown is a great idea. During each lunar eclipse, your current emotional cycle will be reset, revealing what has long been hidden in your subconscious. Ending ties with people and things are inevitable and necessary as you grow, and lunar eclipses are the best time to let that happen.
2. Embracing Changes
Ending things and cutting off ties may not be a negative thing. Cutting off sources of negativity can help clear emotional space for new items. And clearing the mind can be helpful if any unique opportunity arrives; just as useless physical things may clutter up a house, useless emotional baggage will clutter up the mind. Wisdom and maturity you’ve gained in the previous cycle can be anchored in a lunar eclipse.
For many people, preferring familiar things can be a fault. The unknown can make you uncomfortable, but stagnation in the ordinary can often happen if you give in to this fear. You will quickly open up to changes when a lunar eclipse occurs. Seize it as a precious opportunity and remember that the change we strive to make it all for our betterment.
3. Golden Time to Receive Energy & Messages from the Universe
A greater connection with the Divine is made possible when a lunar eclipse occurs as the lunar energy becomes more vital during this time. Imagine a Dues Ex Machina with a spiritual hand that reaches down from the heavens to guide you. There will be pathways opened to you and guidance from the universe that will put you where you need to be. It can be regarded as a golden time to leave what is safe and comfortable to grow more fully into yourself.
Crystals for the Lunar Eclipse
When selecting crystals for the lunar eclipse, it is recommended to choose grounding crystals or crystals that represent darkness. Black or yellow crystals are great options, with obsidian being the best. Obsidian is known as the "Warrior of Truth" and is a teacher stone that can expose darkened subconscious areas and help you face your inner self.
The rarest obsidian types are golden obsidian and silver obsidian. These are formed with air bubbles and have the presence of gold or silver substances near the surface. It is said that they provide the sun and moon energy. It is the perfect stone to embody the darkness that comes during a solar eclipse when the moon blocks the illumination from the sun.
