This is a very special event not only from an astronomical perspective but the symbolic visual impact of one celestial body eclipsing/covering /blocking/revealing another.
It is the feminine eclipsing the masculine; feelings eclipsing mind/reason; cycles and rhythms eclipsing fixed time; spiritual potential eclipsing human limits. The old Piscean masculine ways of dominance, oppression and outer control by a few eclipsed by the Aquarian feminine way of connection, communication, cooperation, collaboration and communion among all.
Although my head occasionally dropped into fear, my heart was able to anchor into humanity’s conviction made long ago that we as a species will uplevel and evolve, so knowing this is the underlying goal, I rested in the Peace of that knowing….And so it is! Rev. David Ault
The Ancients saw eclipses as signs from Divine Beings either as something to fear or an auspicious indicator. Considering the current daily occurrences in the news around the world that can easily throw one into fear, anger, sorrow or pain, this Eclipse could be interpreted to portend Darkness consuming Light. But, this upheaval and turmoil can actually be the doorways into the unevolved Shadow within each of us. At this moment in time many of those lower chakra, lower dimensional primal extremes such as anger and hatred among others, are being brought forward and mirrored back to us and through their intensity in the outer world, forcing us to look within to find those particular aspect in ourselves. For indeed it is there if you are human!
One must have chaos in oneself in order to give birth to a dancing star.
In the USA we have the potential to be innovators in this evolutionary process as signified by this eclipse path crossing our entire country revealing not only that which has been in shadow as a nation, but being such a melting pot, the many long standing feuds and hatreds of cultures, religions and tribes throughout history still in our cells and DNA.
By giving up tribalism, you become a unit of peace consciousness. I can see no other way to achieve genuine healing. You must first see that the world’s wrongs have their seed in you. Only then does the familiar axiom of “Become the change you want to see in the world” stop being a cliché. Deepak Chopra
As you follow the trail of these mirrored aspects as deeply as possible to transform them you thereby create the life you desire for yourself. And if you are able and willing with the assistance of a Guide/Facilitator (http://healersuniverse.com/discovery-process/), you can truly transmute those pieces all the way down to a DNA level, you change your physical body, and/or any dis-ease in any area of our life and your family lineage and transmuting multi-dimensional aspects thereby affecting those other existences of you. Bringing back through the abilities and knowledge from other realities. Remember many theoretical physicists are now realizing and seeing our multidimensionality. Yeah science rules!
Although the country moves into darkness for a short time so will the light return and feel brighter than ever. Whether in its totality or even if your view is a partial one, there is the opportunity to stop for a moment hopefully during the two plus or minus minutes around 2:40-2:45pm Philadelphia time (see here timing where you are https://eclipse.aas.org/eclipse-america/when-where ) and truly experience, feel, with all your being, darkness and light. Holding the perfection and necessity of both in each of us, in our world and in our cosmos. Utterly accepting and being grateful for both so that we can hold the energetic of ‘mutual duality’ as a way for the future. And holding our country in your heart and mind state whatever words you feel called in a positive form of affirmation or read the following.
My Prayer for my Country
Believing in the Divine Destiny of the United States of America and in the preservation of liberty, security and self-expression for all, I offer this, my prayer for my country: I know that Divine Intelligence governs the destiny of the United States of America, directing the thought and the activity of all who guide its affairs. I know that success, prosperity and happiness are the gifts of freedom and the Divine heritage of everyone in this country; that they are now operating in the affairs of every individual in this country. I know that Divine Guidance enlightens the collective mind of the people of this country, causing it to know that economic security may come to all without the loss of either personal freedom or individual self-expression. I know that no one can believe or be led to believe that personal freedom must be surrendered in order to insure economic security for all. The All-knowing Mind contains the answer to every problem which confronts this country. I know that every leader in this country is now directed by this All-knowing Mind and has the knowledge of a complete solution to every problem. Each is impelled to act upon this knowledge to the end that abundance, security and peace shall come to all. And I know that this Spiritual Democracy shall endure, guaranteeing to everyone in this country personal liberty, happiness and self-expression. by Ernest Holmes Originally published in Science of Mind magazine, July 1953
