The last Solar Eclipse 2021 comes to us on December 4th in the form of the new moon. New moon eclipses are known for bringing sudden new beginnings and unexpected news. This Solar Eclipse is going to unravel our deepest and most psychological issues that have been buried underneath for a very long time. In this article, I will share with you what to expect from the last Solar Eclipse 2021 and what to do to soften its impact on your life.
The Last Solar Eclipse 2021
The December 4th event will be a Total Solar Eclipse when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, blocking the Sun’s light in some areas. A Total Solar Eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are aligned directly. People in the path of a total solar eclipse can see the Sun’s corona, the outer atmosphere, which is otherwise usually obscured by the bright face of the Sun.
Solar eclipse 2021 will be partially visible from parts of South Australia, South Africa, South America, the Pacific, the Atlantic, Indian Ocean. Meanwhile, the total phase of the last Solar Eclipse 2021 will be only seen in Antarctica.
How Will the Last Solar Eclipse 2021 Affect Us?
According to Vedic astrology, a Solar eclipse always occurs at the new moon, when the lunar node of Rahu (or Ketu) is located close to the Sun (up to 12 degrees). Thus, when a Solar eclipse occurs, Rahu passes between the Sun and the Moon. It is because of the influence of Rahu that Vedic astrologers do not recommend looking at the Solar eclipse. The fact is that Rahu, mixing with the energy of the Sun, affects our subconscious and imprints negative thoughtforms in it, under the influence of which we may unconsciously become involved in a chain of adverse events.
In addition, it is important to know that at the moment of the eclipse, our thoughts and desires are tracked. The most negative of our thoughts and the most selfish of our desires are transmitted to the cosmos and very quickly grasped by Rahu. Thus, in the future, these thoughts and desires will be materialized, and we will bear karmic responsibility for this. Therefore, at the moment of the eclipse, it is important to be mindful of our thoughts, desires, and actions. It is best to focus on spiritual practices, reading sacred texts, chanting mantras, and praying.
The part of the Earth where the eclipse is visible falls under the influence of Rahu. This means that in these territories, unfavorable events may occur and the karmic lessons that Rahu brings will be activated.
The Sun represents the vital energy – prana. It controls immunity, intelligence, activity, and digestion. In physiology, the Sun represents the structure of the thalamus and the nucleus of each cell.
The Sun also represents human vitality, health, joy, and optimism. Therefore, during the eclipse, you may feel weak and discouraged, digestive problems may arise. In order to minimize the negative impact of the eclipse, it is best to avoid things that consume a lot of energy. Try to spend this day in solitude, away from crowded places.
During an eclipse, Rahu overrides all the benevolent qualities of the Sun. Therefore, during the eclipse (as well as a few days before and after the eclipse), people may experience a decline in strength, poor health, bad digestion, and problems with the cardiovascular system. Rahu tends to obscure consciousness, so people can find themselves in mental states that are not typical for them: there may be more stress, distraction, unfounded experiences, anxiety, negative thoughts, and conflicts.
The Last Solar Eclipse 2021 is going to unravel our deepest and psychological issues that have been buried underneath for a very long time. The intensity of emotions will be at an all-time high. Because of this, violent events can result globally throughout the month of December. There will be a feeling of insecurity and because of this people can take actions that will not only cause others harm but will cause themselves harm as well.
Solar Eclipse in Jyeshta Nakshatra
The last Solar Eclipse 2021 occurs in the lunar mansion of Jyeshta Nakshatra.
Jyeshta Nakshatra is all about power, leadership, and ego. The energy of this nakshatra makes it difficult for people to let go of their pride and ego and makes them rebel against dharma or righteousness.
The symbol of this nakshatra is a circular amulet or a round earring which signifies the phase that what goes around comes around. This nakshatra teaches us to be mindful of what we say and what we do.
Jyeshta nakshatra may make us magnify our troubles and problems in life, therefore, try to stay patient and turn your attention inward. By turning your mind inwards, you will be able to tap into the transformative energy of this nakshatra and use its energy to move forward in life in the right direction.
During the last Solar Eclipse 2021, our own sense of right and wrong could be flawed. Therefore, try not to get stuck in your ideas and opinions, forcing them on others. It’s most likely, your opinions are going to change a lot during this time.
Also, beware of jealousy and betrayal that can surface up during this time. Cultivate purity of intention, action, and speech that is so much needed during this time.
Dos For This Eclipse
Vedic astrologers suggest fasting at least 12 hours before the Solar eclipse. There is an exception for people with health problems, elderly people, and kids – these categories of people may not fast but should at least refrain from food during the exact eclipse time.
The period of 12 hours before the solar eclipse is considered an inauspicious time before the eclipse. Therefore, refraining from eating anything during this time is considered to be beneficial.
Any charity and donations during the eclipse time are considered to be auspicious and help to purify your karma.
