The Spiritual Significance of the Lunar Eclipse

At a Lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon. Lunar eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us.

This month's partial Lunar eclipse also falls on the Full Moon. But unlike a normal full moon that reflects the sun’s illumination, during a lunar eclipse the moon emanates the Earth’s shadow, known as the umbra.

Eclipses are rare because they can only take place when the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are all aligned. They always happen in groups of two or three. A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon and the Sun are on exact opposite sides of Earth. There are four to seven eclipses every calendar year. Typically, there are two eclipse seasons.

The energy of a Full Moon is always that of the cycle coming to completion of its influence and essence. The full moon is an opportunity to let go and a time for anchoring in a new maturity or wisdom that was gained in the previous cycle; it is a perfect time for releasing something that no longer serves you.

Doing a small personal ritual on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, like lighting a candle or writing an intention down on paper and burning it, can help you to engage the energies of release and usher in new changes.

The energy of this Lunar Eclipse will last through the beginning of the new year and will open a new gateway of energy that is productive, active and positive.
