Eclipse Season: what it is and how to survive it

Consider this your how-to and survival guide for the astrological phenomena.

Yep, it’s here, Eclipse Season. You may have heard from your pro-astrology friends (or your daily horoscope) last week that eclipse season has officially begun. But you likely didn’t hear was what the hell it means and how not to sweat it. Guess what? Cosmic’s got you covered.

Eclipse season is a powerful astrological phenomenon that takes place twice a year, and it has the ability to create significant shifts and changes in our lives. Understanding the meaning and impact of solar and lunar eclipses, as well as eclipse season can help us navigate this time with greater ease and awareness.

Cool, right? But first things first:

What the hell is Eclipse Season?

Eclipse season occurs twice a year, when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align in a way that causes a series of solar and lunar eclipses to take place. During a solar eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, temporarily blocking the Sun’s light. During a lunar eclipse, the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow on the Moon.

Eclipse season typically lasts for several weeks and includes two sets of eclipses: a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. Solar eclipses occur during the New Moon, and lunar eclipses occur during the Full Moon. The energy of eclipse season can be felt for weeks before and after the actual eclipses take place.

The Meaning and Impact of Eclipse Season

Often, you can think of solar and lunar eclipses as new and full moons on steroids. When eclipse season begins, your mood, energy levels, and emotions are impacted. Why? Because in astrology, the Moon is THE celestial body of our mood, energetic body, and emotions.

Eclipse season is a time of powerful transformation and growth. The energy of the eclipses can shake things up, bringing sudden changes and shifts in our lives. These changes may be challenging, but they are ultimately for our highest good and growth.

During eclipse season, we are being called to let go of old patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that are no longer serving us. This can be difficult, but it is necessary for us to move forward on our path. The energy of eclipse season can help us to release what no longer serves us and make room for new beginnings.

It’s important to note that the energy of eclipse season can be intense and unpredictable — and they are always influenced by the energy and themes of the zodiac sign and zodiacal axis in which the eclipses take place. We may experience unexpected events, intense emotions, or sudden shifts in our lives. However, if we can stay grounded and present during this time, we can use the energy of the eclipses to allow necessary changes in our lives to occur.

Tips for Navigating Eclipse Season

OK. So, now that you know what they’re all about, here are some tips for navigating eclipses and eclipse season:

  1. Stay grounded: It’s important to stay grounded and centered during eclipse season. Practice meditation, yoga, or any other activities that help you feel centered and present.
  2. Be open to change: Eclipse season is a time of change and transformation. Be open to new opportunities and be willing to let go of what no longer serves you.
  3. Practice self-care: Eclipse season can be intense, so it’s important to take care of yourself. Make time for rest, relaxation, and self-care activities that help you feel grounded and centered.
  4. Stay present: The energy of eclipse season can be unpredictable, so it’s important to stay present and take things one day at a time. Focus on the present moment and trust that everything is unfolding as it should.

Basically, there’s no need to get overly obsessed with or upset by eclipses. In fact, when you learn to work with their intense energies, eclipse seasons can become a powerful period of transformation and growth. By understanding the meaning and impact of eclipse season, we can navigate this time with greater ease and awareness. Just remember to stay grounded, be open to change, practice self-care, and stay present during these transformative times.
