Total Solar Eclipse – November 2012
For those of us not in the path of totality, the solar eclipse will be seen as a partial eclipse of the Sun in the early morning just after sunrise… I estimate around 6.55am (Byron Bay time). If you are planning to watch the sunrise and partial eclipse don’t forget you must take precautions to avoid the possibility of serious eye damage. It truly is a magical experience, to witness. I was blessed to be at Konya in Turkey for the total solar eclipse in 2006, unfortunately my footage was damaged in transit. But here is a link I found on YouTube.
I well remember the confusion of the birds that all disappeared and went quiet thinking it was night time, and then reemerged and began chirping again as the sun slowly reappeared. It was such a bizarre experience. And what significance does this hold for us spiritually? The Eclipse will take you out of your usual balance and comfort zone, and make it easier to let go of the past and embrace the future.
Here’s an article I found fascinating…
Total Solar Eclipse – 13th November 2012
The Solar Eclipse is a crucial turning point that can help accelerate our transition into the new consciousness. This eclipse will create space for new patterns to take root within collective consciousness… it is like the final release that will allow in the new energies.
The Eclipse will be a significant time for everyone, bringing opportunities to release the collective grief for our loss of deep spiritual knowing of our Oneness with Mother Earth and all of Creation. The indigenous peoples of the Pacific have maintained an unbroken memory-thread of our Oneness with Mother Earth, carrying this ancient wisdom within the Aboriginal, Maori and Waitaha traditions etc.
This Eclipse in southern Pacific mirrors the May Eclipse. Being a Total Eclipse, the shadow does touch the Earth’s surface. Its astrological pattern resembles a Kite, with its head open like a flower to receive new frequencies from Mars, Pluto and Juno.
Mars is conjunct the Galactic Centre, aligning our personal will with our spiritual will (Pluto), enabling us to be in Right Relationship (Juno) with the Universe. Grounding and balancing these powerful energies, at the tail of the Kite are Ceres, Vesta and Jupiter. Ceres in Cancer challenges us to release emotional resistance to manifesting our spiritual will. Vesta in Gemini challenges us to relate to others in ways that honour the truth within our own hearts. Jupiter challenges us to release dualistic belief systems of ‘this is true’, or ‘that is true’; if we are in Right Relationship with ourselves, others and the world, then both ‘this and that are true’. This means honouring our own perceptions of truth as well as the truths of others.
At the ‘wings’ of the kite are Venus, on one side and Chiron–Neptune, on the other. Venus holds the pattern in harmonious balance; Chiron and Neptune bring the healing potentials of Unconditional Love into our day-to-day lives.
The Sun, Moon and North Node in Scorpio bring commitment and self-discipline to confront our deepest emotional fears, so that we can understand the best ways to move forward. The key is that it is time for us to take full responsibility for our own future, realising that our beliefs, attitudes and deeply held inner patterns create the circumstances of our lives – we literally create our own reality.
The outcome of the Eclipse will be to remove barriers and veils that have existed within consciousness since time immemorial, enabling us to live at one with ourselves, the Earth and the Universe.
