Eclipses & Their Meanings

When the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth a solar eclipse occurs; a lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon. Prior to your birth (sometimes between conception and the first breath of life) there were at least two eclipses — one solar and one lunar. These prenatal eclipses have a profound influence on an unborn child, and the energy pattern dispensed during these eclipses follows you the rest of your life.

The magnetic pull of the Sun and the Moon eclipsing is strong enough to open the Earth's sheath temporarily so that these energies can be received. At the time of the solar eclipse the planet is seeded with the energy pattern that correlates to the psychodynamics of the constellation the Sun is in at the time.

One way to think about this is that when the Earth's "window" opens to receive this "cosmic dusting", the "view" (energy, information and knowledge) that is in front of the window is what is perceived. So if the Sun is in Sagittarius when the eclipse occurs, the knowledge and information available through Sagittarius is visible. When the window is open, not only is that knowledge visible, but the Earth's magnetic field pulls in the energy of that constellation. When the Moon is eclipsed, a similar process takes place.

At birth, both of these energies enter the body. By knowing the sign of the solar eclipse preceding your birth, you can identify the covenant you made with the universe in exchange for the privilege of having a body and being on the planet.

Impact Of Eclipses

The immense impact of the eclipses on individual destiny seems to be tied in with the workings of the planet Pluto. Our research has shown that those born prior to the discovery of Pluto in January 1930 may not be as subject to the effect of their prenatal eclipses. However, those born before 1930 who are particularly evolved and aware beings are just as sensitive to these influences as those born after January 1930. This can be explained, in part, by the fact that even though the planet Pluto was in existence prior to 1930, humankind's consciousness had not yet evolved to the point where Pluto's energies could be received. Once that point was reached (in 1930), Pluto was "discovered" on the physical plane.

What Eclipses Mean

The sign of the solar eclipse shows a "universal" destiny. It is the energy of the collective unconscious that needs to be actively expressed on the Earth at that given point in time for its own balance. The souls that are born into each solar eclipse have been "dusted" with that energy and have promised to spread that energy on the Earth to help with the growth and evolution of the planet.

Thus, whatever solar eclipse preceded your birth is the energy the universe has invested in you and that you have promised to share during your travels on Earth.

The solar eclipse energy is what you are here to clarify for the collective whole. Where your solar eclipse is concerned, you must share as you have promised in your covenant with the universe. Your only choice lies in whether to share your gift in a positive or in a negative way. You can go about your life willingly sharing this gift with your fellow beings, or you can teach the lesson by having such negative traits that those around you learn what not to do from your behavior and personality. If you do choose to teach these lessons in a negative manner, you are creating an imbalance within your life that causes your own lessons to be learned with more difficulty than is necessary.

You promised that you would share the energy of the "solar" eclipse in order to earn the right to come onto this plane and learn the lessons represented by your "lunar" eclipse. The universe operates in perfect balance.

If you give something, you open yourself to receiving something. So when you accepted the gift represented by your solar eclipse and promised to share it with others, you earned the right to learn the lessons you need in order to evolve, as shown by your lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse is what you need for your own soul growth pattern: what you have come to learn, where you hurt, where you need completion. And as you master these lessons, the entire planet learns them, and part of the universal balance is attained.

Evolved souls cooperate with this universal plan, spreading their solar eclipse teachings and mastering their lunar eclipse lessons, thus fulfilling their contracts with the universe. At that point, they are freed to enjoy being on the planet without obstructions, free to attract and experience the beauty, fun, and bounty available on planet Earth.
