26 Jul The Longest Lunar Eclipse of The Century! What July 27th Means For You…
Eclipses are rare astrological events because all three, the Earth, the moon, and the sun must align. During a lunar eclipse, the sun and the moon are on the opposite sides of the Earth. With this split, there is a clear energy in the air of the future and the past—what you need to change versus what you need to let go.
On July 27th, the shadow of the Earth will block the moon for the longest time in 120 years. This total lunar eclipse will last 1 hour, 42 minutes, and 57 seconds. Including all phases of the eclipse from start to finish, the moon will stay in the dark for almost 4 hours. This is a long eclipse, especially comparing to the shortest on that happened on April 4th, 2015 and lasted just 4 minutes and 48 seconds.
The longer a lunar eclipse lasts, the stronger its energy, and this time it is here to bring some needed change. Buckle up for the ride, and learn how to use this lunar eclipse’s energy to grow into your full self.
A Lunar Eclipse is a Messenger of Change
If there is just one main thing to remember about eclipses is that they are the very definition of change—sometimes sudden. With change comes the opportunity of complete transformation.
As everything in nature has cycles, eclipses are a reminder that cycles exist for you to honor and follow. During the dark part of the cycle lies an opportunity to purge the old energy that does not serve you, heal, and invite the new.
There would not be as big of growth if there were no cycles.
What often stops growth is the fear of change, the fear of the unknown. The lunar eclipse is bringing both change and the unknown to you to show that there is nothing to fear. What we see as darkness in just a clean slate, and an opportunity to let go and start new. Days filled with light are just around the corner.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone and Purge
The first step to a new life is to purge the old. As the moon grows dark, the darkness can finally be confronted; with this darkness, unconscious feelings come up to surface. It is time to forget where your comfort zone lies and do what needs to be done for your own self-transformation.
It is time to let go of any attachments you are still trying to hold on to. Are you attached to the way you live your life? Your job? Place of living? Being attached can cause anxiety due to fear of losing something, and depression if you lose it. Both are unnecessary. You cannot lose what still serves you, and what is good for you.
If something leaves your life, it means it was slowing you down even if you were not aware of it.
The cause of attachments lies in emotions, which is why it is also important to realize and look at your emotional cycles.
Are you holding on to past hurts and grudges? It is time to forgive those you hold a grudge toward, including yourself. Forgiveness is one of the most important steps to setting yourself free.
After forgiveness and the process of letting go of attachments occurs, a new openness to positive change arises and works it’s magic in our lives.
Trust In The Process
Finally, the last step into accepting and thriving during the lunar eclipse is to trust it. You must trust that the energy is leading you where you need to be—because it is.
A lot of change can happen during and after the eclipse, and you must realize that the big events that it brings are all a part of the divine plan. However, the energy can only guide you so far before you must start walking on your own.
The lunar eclipse will set the wheels in motion, now it is up to you to follow through into a complete transformation. Real change requires your input, your participation, and your willingness to change. The rest will happen naturally, just like all natural cycles of life.
