Incredible Spiritual Meanings of Lunar Eclipse

What is the Lunar Eclipse?

A lunar eclipse is when the moon orbits into the shadow of the earth. In a solar eclipse, the darkest part of the earth’s shadow is called the umbra with the lighter parts called the penumbra. During lunar eclipse, the spectrum of light is blocked by the earth towards the moon and only a red wavelength goes through causing the moon to take on a reddish-orange glow. That’s why lunar eclipses are sometimes called “Blood Moons”.

Lunar eclipses can also be divided into two types. A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon and sun are on opposite sides of earth, and a partial lunar eclipse happens when only part of Earth's shadow covers the moon. “Blood Moons” happen when there are total eclipses. In some parts of the world, people can easily see every stage of the lunar eclipse, especially in much of Central and South America, Western Europe and Africa, and most of North America. No special equipment is needed to view a lunar eclipse and a dark environment is enough for the best viewing conditions.

Lunar Eclipse Spiritual Meaning

In astrology, the spiritual aspects of the moon represent our deep emotional tides. Astrologists believe that an eclipse is a life-changing time to seek change and usher in evolution. During a lunar eclipse when the moon is covered in the shadow of the earth, your emotions and subconscious patterns will be revealed. During this event, pathways are shown that tell you what you need to let go of and what changes you should make.

1. Letting Go of the Past

The energy potential of a lunar eclipse is at its peak during a total eclipse. It is a quantum opportunity to cleanse your emotional waters by releasing deep-seated wounds and moving beyond old pains by transcending your negative patterns. During this time, it is a the great idea to get rid of anything that you have outgrown. During each lunar eclipse, your current emotional cycle will be reset and what has long been hidden in your subconscious will be revealed. Ending ties with people and things are inevitable and necessary as you grow and lunar eclipses are the best time to let that happen.

2. Embracing Changes

Ending things and cutting off ties may not be a negative thing. Cutting off sources of negativity can help clear emotional space for new things. And clearing the mind can be helpful if any new opportunity arrives, just as useless physical things may clutter up a house, useless emotional baggage will clutter up the mind. Wisdom and maturity you’ve gained in the previous cycle can be anchored in a lunar eclipse. For many people, preferring things that are familiar can be a fault. The unknown can make you uncomfortable but stagnation in the familiar can often happen if you give in to this fear. You will easily open up to changes when a lunar eclipse happens. Seize it as a precious opportunity and bear in mind that changes we strive to make are all for our own individual betterment.

3. Golden Time to Receive Energy & Messages from the Universe

Greater connection with the Divine is made possible when a lunar eclipse occurs as the lunar energy becomes stronger during this time. Imagine a Dues Ex Machina, with a spiritual hand that reaches down from the heavens to guide you. There will be pathways opened to you and guidance from the universe that will put you where you need to be. It can be regarded as a golden time to leave what is safe and comfortable in order to grow more fully into yourself.

Crystals for the Lunar Eclipse

Grounding crystals or crystals that can represent darkness are a must-have when it comes to choosing crystals for the lunar eclipse. Any black or yellow crystals can be a possible choice. Among them, obsidian is the best. Obsidian is a teacher stone and is credited as the "Warrior of Truth." It exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force you to face your inner self.

The rarest obsidian types are golden obsidian and silver obsidian. These are formed with air bubbles and have a presence of gold or silver substances near the surface. It is said that they provide the energy of the sun and the moon. It is the perfect stone to embody the darkness that comes during a solar eclipse, when the illumination from the sun is blocked by the moon.
