Eclipses occur when the lunar nodes change signs. Eclipses herald change, and the house in which the eclipse takes place – in your birth chart – is where you can expect to experience a change in your life.

It is well known in astrological circles that eclipses have effect not only on the mind, but also on the fire within, the digestion, and there is a spiritual dimension to eclipses also. Prayers, mantras, rosaries, anything that is offered up is multiplied manifold during the time of the eclipse. Prayer, Meditation, sending light and healing to the Earth, to all peoples in all dimensions on Earth during an eclipse is multiplied 100,000 times.

Rules are not important; intention, and the motivation within the heart is what is important. When an eclipse is at hand, offer some time for the spiritual welfare of all on this planet, and allow the Higher Cosmic Beings to take this energy where it is most needed at this point in time. Multiplied 100,000 times, mankind and those who live in fear and suffering, would benefit from your effort.

This day, there is a Solar eclipse and many people wondered whether the Birthday festival will be celebrated or postponed. The shadow of the moon falling upon the sun is not the calamity that people should fear, the shadow of maya falling upon the intelligence is the eclipse that has to be treated as a bad omen, as inauspicious. The mind is the moon, the intelligence is the sun; see that they do not suffer from eclipse, then you are safe. Do not worry when something happens in the outer sky; worry when the shadow of some dark desire, some foul passion, some monstrous emotion, some fell intention casts its evil gloom over your inner sky. see that the splendour of the Lord, the cool rays of His Grace are not dimmed in the recesses of Your heart.
