Have you heard? The word is out that there’s an Eclipse coming up on the 30th of November, and in the astrology world, everyone’s getting ready for a rollercoaster ride! Eclipses are times of major shifts, as if the Universe is pressing her foot on the gas pedal and urging us to go faster – much faster!
So, instead of feeling as if we are being tumbled about in the washer, how can we work with these intense energies?
The truth is, we should really be lying low during an Eclipse. The big deal about this heavenly event is that fact that it’s all about consciousness, and the theory that Eclipses block out the light of consciousness as the Sun fades in light – the Sun being the collective symbol of awareness. After all, this Star being sheds light on the whole world – what would we do without her?
In many Eastern countries, they don’t even dare to look at the Eclipse, whilst here in the West, we marvel at this astronomical phenomenon. There’s a balance to be had, we think.
However, with that said, we try not to do too much magic over these periods. In fact, we should rest, close the door and take a long, hot, detoxifying bath. Any manifestation we do now may turn out to be a little chaotic and unpredictable, and we run the risk of leaning too much into the darkness.
So again, we ask – what can we do with these powerful vibes?
The first step to knowing what do to do about this Eclipse is knowing what sign it’s in. if you’re lucky, you can place that sign in your astrology chart and see which area of life is activated for you. But if you’ve not gone that far yet, not to worry, we’ve got you!
This “family” of Eclipses currently fall in the sign of Gemini and Sagittarius – the signs of knowledge, communication plushy, travel and education. These are some of the topics we are dealing with during this Lunar Eclipse.
You see, a Lunar Eclipse is a supercharged Full Moon. Yup, it’s even crazier than a “real” Full Moon. It will bring many of these topics to a head in our lives.
Now, let’s look at a ritual we can do to manage this as best as we can:
Our first piece of advice for this ritual is to lay low. Don’t overextend your energies, or push too hard. Be very careful of what you decide to release or ask for, of what you manifest. Things may happen very, very quickly, and you can get drained faster than with any other Full Moon.
With this Lunar Eclipse, we recommend getting your friends around you, or even just a close friend. You’ll need to combine your energies to support each there. And don’t worry, you don’t have to tell them you’re doing magic if you don’t want to!
set a date to get together with some close friends within 3 days before or 3 days after the Lunar Eclipse to make the most of the powerful energies. You don’t have to do this with anyone, but it can make things better for you.
Generally speaking, try not to do too much over this Eclipse, and remember that there is another one coming up on 14 December. This is a more draining time, and it’s often advised in astrology that you find your way to the water to heal. Bathing, swimming and drinking water is ideal.
Some of you may have major life events happen over this period, so allow things to change and be flexible. Gemini invites adaptability and versatility, being open to the lessons that come your way!
