The Spiritual Meaning of An Eclipse & Why You Need to Know!

Do Eclipses Have a Positive or Negative Spiritual Influence?

We live in powerfully transformative times. This means there are many significant time periods, high energy gateways, as well as astrologically observable events throughout the year that act as markers or key node points on our paths, opening doorways for transformation just waiting for us to claim and step through them.

Both solar and lunar eclipses are among these highly significant times.

And now, on May 5th 2023, we're experiencing the peak Lunar Eclipse energies.

Throughout history, eclipses have held spiritual significance for many civilizations. In many spiritual traditions, eclipses were seen to be times of powerful transformation heralding potent energy shifts.

Spiritually speaking, an Eclipse Cycle serves a key role, and that is triggering change and transformation.

Eclipses tend to bring edgy and unsettled energy that has a way of revealing old patterns, insecurities, limitations, and even fears.

When you become aware of these “lower vibrational patterns” within and around you, you then have the power and opportunity to heal and transmute them so you can let them go.

In this sense, an Eclipse Cycle is an ally on your transformation journey. They shine a spotlight on where you're out of alignment, so you can transform and shift into greater harmony and coherence with Truth, and the highest possibilities for your life.

Illuminating your “stuff” however is not always fun and easy, and can be downright painful and challenging at times. This is why throughout history Eclipses have often been feared and even believed to have harmful spiritual side effects.

What Is An Eclipse Exactly?

An Eclipse is an observable astronomical event that happens as a result of an alignment of the sun and moon, or another planet.

As NASA explains: “A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth blocks the light from the Sun so that the Earth’s shadow falls on the moon… Lunar eclipses happen at least twice a year, and can last for a few hours.”

And on the other hand…

“Solar eclipses happen once every 18 months and only last for a few minutes… Solar Eclipses happen when the moon lines up directly between the Sun and the Earth, so that the moon casts a shadow onto Earth.”

Eclipse Spiritual Meaning

Eclipses hold significant spiritual aspects and layers of symbolic meaning across many cultures and spiritual traditions. In general, an eclipse is seen as a powerful time of transformation, growth, and

 renewal that is wonderful for meditation, and spiritual practice.

This is due to the union of opposites happening amidst an Eclipse, the merging of light and dark, the balancing of energies symbolically represented by the union, and the interaction between the sun and the moon.

Spiritually speaking, the sun represents the conscious mind. The sun is associated with life force energy, warmth, light, and creativity. The moon, which reflects the light of the sun at night represents our emotional body and subconscious or unconscious mind.

This of course is not the only symbolic meaning of the sun and moon, and in different cultures and traditions, we can find deeper layers of meaning and insight as to what the sun and the moon represent.

The sun is also associated with divine masculine energy and vitality, while the moon is associated with divine feminine energy and intuition.

During an Eclipse while the Sun and Moon are aligned, it is seen as a time when the conscious and unconscious parts of ourselves are brought together in harmony, creating an opportunity for deep inner transformation and healing.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

Eclipse Spiritual Meaning

A Solar Eclipse, which happens at the time of a New Moon, represents a time of profound change and new beginnings. New Moons are always times of new beginnings, but when the moon is eclipsed, the energy is amplified and elevated.

When a Solar Eclipse happens, and the moon lines up directly between the Sun and the Earth, casting a shadow onto Earth, the darkness that is created can be seen as a portal to a new chapter in our lives, offering the chance to release old patterns and embrace new opportunities for growth and transformation.

During a Solar Eclipse, when the moon blocks out the light of the sun, our emotions, and subconscious patterns can be deeply revealed. Rather than reveling in lower-frequency emotional patterns that may arise, Solar eclipses present good opportunities to reflect, heal, and transmute lower-frequency patterns in to habits and patterns that will serve.

Solar Eclipses which happen during New Moons, reveal the “new beginning possibilities” in a supercharged way.

The time around a Solar Eclipse is a time of heightened spiritual energy and a powerful opportunity for meditation, intention-setting, and ritual that can help to magnify the power of intentions so you can manifest your desires more quickly and effectively.

Lunar Eclipse Meaning

Lunar Eclipse Spiritual Meaning

A Lunar Eclipse occurs during a Full Moon, when an alignment with the Earth blocks the light from the Sun so that the Earth’s shadow falls on the moon. When a lunar eclipse happens, it gives the moon a reddish orange glow, this coloring is where the name “blood moons” comes from, referring to the color of the moon during total lunar eclipses.

This shadow on the moon, which represents the subconscious or unconscious mind, can be seen as a time when the subconscious mind is brought to the surface, allowing us to confront and release old patterns and emotions that may be holding us back from spiritual growth and evolution.

A lunar eclipse is a time of deep emotional healing and purification.

This energetic influence often reveals where you need to let go, bring something to completion, or let something fall away.

This completion energy can sometimes be abrupt like losing a job or breaking up with a partner in a way that brings deep emotional tides … Or it may be more subtle, like realizing the negative effects of habits or patterns you've been perpetuating in your life that no longer serve, leading you to realize its time to embrace positive change in your life.

When you stay present in the moment and observe the realizations, changes, and insights that are being triggered within or around you without judgement you can claim this opportunity to harmonize with more of what will truly serve and empower you in your life.

Where have you been on track, and how can you now release the old energies to embrace this change to evolve, transform and grow?

In a way, Eclipses are like cosmic catalysts that can trigger endings and push you to take a step towards the new beginnings you may have been resisting.

If you're open, willing, and allowing, Eclipse energy can be joyfully navigated with ease. Its only when you are in resistance that old patterns become painful as they begin to fall away and you hold on.

Let go and allow necessary changes to unfold in your life!

When you do, Eclipses can act like doors or gateways that support us in entering into a higher dimension of being.

To step across the threshold into higher states of love, joy, peace and light you can't bring your “stuff” with you.

If you're not sure what I mean when I say “stuff” … I'm talking about the accumulated blockages, limiting patterns, distorted and negative programming, fears, insecurities, doubts etc, that block you from maintaining a higher vibration of love peace and light.

You don't have to transform your old patterns, and you don't have to make the choice to serve love and higher frequencies within you. But if don't… Then you suffer.

Eclipse energy pretty much presents the choice: “Transform the old energies that are no longer serving you, or bask in them to your own detriment.”

An Eclipse Cycle means that it's time to transform on multiple levels. Are you willing to change? Keep in mind that if you're not willing to change… Eclipses are known to trigger necessary life changes for you.⠀

Are you needing a wake up call to let go of something you're holding onto even through you know it doesn't serve?  If Eclipse energies are in the air, this is likely already in the works for you in some way!⠀

Are you needing some sort of push to realign you with your highest purpose? Be ready, because during Eclipse Cycles things that need to be revealed, shaken up, changed, or even destroyed have a way of being triggered and revealed.

I'm not of the belief that Eclipses are harmful spiritually, and that we should try to insulate ourselves from their harmful effects, but rather, any negative repercussions that arise during this time present us with valuable and necessary realizations for where we need to transform, change and grow.

Support yourself in making the most of this period by detaching from the outcome and letting go.

Stay present, centered and adaptable to be ready for the unexpected.

Allow the Grace of the Divine to reach you and guide you through any transitions or transformations so you can come into alignment with the highest possibilities for you.

And remember that as you release what no longer serves you, you make way for new creative inspiration, and the highest levels of your Divine expression.

What do you really want to manifest, experience, and create in your life?

And know that this is the perfect time to plant seeds of intention, to be honest with yourself about where you are not on track with the highest possibilities for your life. Sometimes awareness of where there is a blockage or distortion is all that is really needed to be able to finally shift, change, transform and get in sync with the spiral of creation.

Remember that change happens in an instant, especially when we allow!

Eclipses act like energetic gateways, allowing a heightened frequency to reach us and impact us in many ways.

This makes eclipse cycles a powerful time to focus on what you really want and to consciously manifest!

Things often feel accelerated around Eclipses, and whatever needs to be dealt with will surely appear.

Stay grounded, open and willing…

Knowing that while the energy around Eclipses may feel intense, it ultimately supports you through massive transformation to help you align with your highest self and most vibrant life!
