Winter Solstice 2021: Powerful Rituals For Spiritual Renewal

Published

on

Winter Solstice 2020 Image

The winter solstice 2021 can be compared to the dark night of the soul that holds an ancient seed of infinite renewal. This is the birthday of our life-giving sun.

Sunlight is the source of hope, the eternal atman, and the source of our souls as well. The sun sustains and empowers life through the protective container of dharma, the balance of seasons and days that allows life to flourish and grow.
 
On the winter solstice 2021, the sun reaches the dark zenith of the underworld. From this deep and grounded place, true light and hope are reborn stronger than ever before.

In this article, I will share with you the meaning behind the winter solstice 2021 and the spiritual practices and rituals you can perform on this powerful day!

Winter Solstice In Vedic Astrology (Uttarayana)

In Vedic astrology, the winter solstice is the first day of Uttarayana. This is the name given to the period from the winter to the summer solstice – the six months when the light is returning. The term Uttarayana is derived from two Sanskrit words “uttara” (North) and “ayana” (movement) thus indicating a semantic of the northward movement of the Earth on the celestial sphere. 

It is believed that the world returns to the blessed path of heaven in the auspicious time of Uttarayana. In India, it is believed that at this time the gods are awake and send blessings to people.

The period from the summer solstice to the winter solstice is called dakshinayana, the time when the gods sleep. This is the time when the Sun begins to trace a southward movement in the Earth’s sky in the northern hemisphere of the planet.

According to Hindu tradition, the six months of Uttarayana are a single day of the Gods; the six months of Dakshinayana are a single night of the Gods. 

Thus, the winter solstice marks the beginning of a favorable period for all people.

People who have been spiritually aware have always identified this transition as a possibility for lifting their consciousness to a higher level.

Particularly, the first half of Uttarayana until the equinox in March is a period where the maximum amount of the Divine blessings is available. The human system is more receptive to the Divine blessings at that time than any other.

Uttarayana is the time when enlightenment is available for anyone who puts pure intention and effort into spiritual work. This is also the period of receptivity, grace, and attainment of the ultimate.

Winter Solstice 2021

Winter solstice 2021 in Northern Hemisphere will be at 3:59 pm UTC on Tuesday, December 21st. It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. From this point on, the light day will gradually increase, and the night will decrease.

The Winter Solstice is a great time for renewal when the energies of the planet have a significant influence on us. During this powerful time, the energies of the Sun and Moon will help us to cleanse ourselves from the accumulated negative energy and fill ourselves in with positivity and inspiration.

This time is favorable for:

  • letting go of destructive programs;
  • purification of your living space, cleansing your body, and clearing your mind;
  • preparation for transition to another level of vibration, consciousness, and being;
  • mindset transformation;
  • manifesting your desired reality.

This is the end of the year, which wasn’t easy for many of us. Now is the time to take a break, loosen your grip, and relax. Take this time to think about your values, your true life purpose, and your mission in this life. It’s good to spend this time quietly, without fuss.

Things To Do On Winter Solstice

Winter solstice 2021 is the time to recall with gratitude how things have changed and grown in the last year. This is the best time to make New Year’s resolutions and it is a powerful time to plant seeds of hope in the face of life’s challenges.

On the winter solstice, it’s important to rest: get some sleep, meditate, take a walk, and get some fresh air. Take time to read and take care of yourself.

It’s important to remember that on this day, you create the foundation for everything that will happen in the next six months — think about how you want to spend this time and plan the winter solstice day accordingly.

Winter Solstice 2021 is the time to get rid of all unnecessary things that bother you. Clean your house, disassemble the wardrobe, give away things that you don’t use anymore to charity. Also, if you start getting rid of bad habits on this day, the Higher Powers will give you all the help and support that you need.

It’s important to purify yourself on this day, not just externally, but also from the inside. On the day of the winter solstice 2021, it is very beneficial to observe fasting.

Spend time with your loved ones, spread positive vibes, radiate optimism, share your light! In any case, do not fight, argue, or gossip on this day! On the contrary, make peace with those with whom there were conflicts.

On this energetically strong day, it is important to perform spiritual practices. You can perform any practice aimed at purification or forgiveness.

Here are some powerful practices and rituals you can perform on this day.

Energy Cleansing Ritual

Before you fill the bathtub with hot water, light scented candles (or ordinary candles), dim the lighting. Set up your intention to purify your energyclear your aura, etc.

  1. Fill the tub with warm water.
  2. Be sure to add sea salt, because it takes away all the negativity.
  3. Turn on meditative music for relaxation. This can be the sounds of nature, spiritual chants, mantras, etc.
  4. Get in the bathtub.
  5. While laying in the bathtub, visualize that water and salt take away all your problems. And every minute your body becomes lighter and lighter.
  6. When you feel that you have spent enough time in the bath, drain the water. When draining the water, imagine that all the bad things go away with it.
  7. After performing the ritual, you will feel a true renewal at the level of body and soul. You can climb under a warm blanket with a cup of your favorite herbal tea and just let yourself relax.

Practice Of Letting Go

It is best performed at sunset of the day before the winter solstice.

  1. Write down on a piece of paper all the negative and bad things that happened during the year – what you want to get rid of or forget.
  2. Now say your intention to get rid of, let go of, forgive, etc. For example: “I forgive my mother and let go of all the resentment and negative feelings related to her,” or “I let go of all the conflicts that I got involved in this year and open up myself to loving and respectful relationships.”
  3. Now burn a piece of paper, imagining your sorrows burning in the fire. Visualize how along with the smoke, all your problems disappear.
  4. Feel the release.

Ritual “Reconnecting With The Sun”

Reconnecting With The Sun practice image
  1. Stand facing east. Look in the direction where the reborn Sun rises.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Sun for all the good things in your life and ask for guidance and assistance in the future.
  3. Visualize your future as you would like it to be. Listen to yourself. What do you feel? Immerse yourself in your feelings. Let the sun recharge you and fill you with its energy.

Abundance Meditation

This practice is best done during the day, when the Sun is at its zenith, to feel more connected to the energy of the Sun.

  1. Make yourself comfortable: lie down or sit down in a meditative posture.
  2. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and slow exhalations. As you inhale, imagine how the solar energy of golden color enters your Solar Plexus (Manipura chakra) along with the air.
  3. When you feel the heat in your Solar Plexus, mentally say the words:

“I feel the power of sunlight in me. I am one with the energy of the Universal abundance. I attract prosperity and embrace abundance in my life. So it is!”

  1. Feel how the energy of the sun is circulating inside you and how its heat spreads from Manipura chakra and fills your entire body.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Universe for everything it gives you, for the abundant life, and limitless opportunities. Smile and open your eyes.

The Bottom Line

Winter Solstice 2021 is a powerful time that will bring us, as a global community, a collective shift in action and behavior. As individuals, we will also experience our own unique shifts based on our personal karma. This is the time when we can actually purify our karma with prayers and mantras and create the foundation for everything that will happen in the next six months by setting our intentions. Whether you decide to take advantage of any of the rituals I have described above or not, it’s important to take some time during this solstice and simply sit, be still and align yourself with your Higher Self!

Also, let’s not forget that in ancient cultures, the winter solstice was celebrated as New Year’s Day. Therefore, this energetically strong time is perfect for new years resolutions and new starts!

Happy Winter Solstice!

Feng Shui Astrology For December 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology for August Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s eleventh month starts on December 7th and ends on January 5th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until January 5th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

December 2022 is the month of the Water Rat. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in December 2022 and how to choose dates for different events properly.

Feng Shui Astrology for December 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Water Rat

According to the Chinese calendar, December 2022 is ruled by the Water Rat.

In Chinese mythology, the Water Rat is an image of frozen water, like an iceberg or a very deep dark pond. The Water Rat has a cold and unpredictable mysterious energy. Behind the external emotional calmness, unpredictable things can suddenly happen internally. In December, many people may feel emotional and pessimistic. Deep fears and panic may also arise in society.

On a global scale, there may still be a coldness, and the economic downturn may continue. There may be a lack of energy, an unwillingness to act, and a desire to isolate yourself from others and stay in your own “shell”.

This month, it will be more difficult for people to express their opinions, will, and positions. There is also an indication of possible frequent sharp changes and increased instability.

This month, it is highly recommended to engage in activities that bring you inspiration and festive spirit. Decorate your Christmas tree, create a holiday spirit with festive decorations, make home-cooked meals, invite friends and family over, and focus on the positive thoughts that bring you joy and inspiration.

In December 2022, it is recommended to avoid traveling in the South direction. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the South direction.

Auspicious Days In December 2022

December 17th and 29th are good dates for starting long-term affairs. Any project started on these dates will not promise rapid development, but it will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Dog.

November 14th and 26th are good dates for signing financial agreements. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Monkey.

Inauspicious Days In December 2022

December 7th, 9th, 19th, 21st, 31st, and January 2nd are unfavorable dates to start anything important. These dates bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

December 12th and 24th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete ongoing projects.

December 9th and 11th are “No Wealth Days“. These dates are not suitable for starting a business, making investments, or signing financial agreements.

The November New Moon: Here’s How It Will Affect Us

Published

on

July new moon image

The Moon is waning to a new moon on November 23rd at 2:57 p.m. PT (5:57 p.m. EST). This is when the Moon is lost in the glare of the Sun and completely invisible. The November new moon is a powerful time that can give impetus to our spiritual development and personal evolution. I will share everything you need to know about this new moon in this article.

The New Moon In Vedic Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the new moon is called Amavasya. It is the time when the Moon and the Sun line up.

According to Vedic astrologyShukla paksha, the brightest part of the lunar month begins with Amavasya, when one can count on the indulgence and benefits of the gods. It is recommended to dedicate the new moon to spiritual practices, offerings, and prayers. It is also considered a favorable period for completing previously started projects, cleaning, and charity.

Amavasya is considered the most favorable period to engage in your personal development; spend this day in meditation and prayers.

It is said that any activity related to material affairs will not bring any benefits on this day. However, any spiritual practice you engage in will multiply its benefits when performed during Amavasya. The same can be said about charity and donations done during Amavasya – you will be generously rewarded for your acts of kindness.

The November New Moon

According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), the November new moon occurs in Scorpio. 

The moon in Scorpio promises us a lunar month of transformation and inner changes. The task of this lunar month is the destruction of the old paradigms that no longer serve us. This lunar month can aggravate issues related to inherited property and financial affairs. It can also bring an internal crisis and emotional vulnerability into our lives. Therefore, this period is perfect for emotional cleansing.

Another theme that this lunar month is going to activate in our lives is the need for security. We will have to find a way to feel more safe, secure, and protected. Accumulated fears, resentments, jealousy, and mistrust rise to the surface. Use protection mantras, breathing exercises, and meditation to build a feeling of security and safety.

How does the Moon in Scorpio affect our mind?

Emotionally, these days are not going to be comfortable:

  • There is a need for emotional release (for example, crying out your pain);
  • Intuition manifests itself more strongly, psychic abilities increase;
  • Suspiciousness and anxiety increase;
  • Interest in transcendental knowledge;
  • Secrecy and suspicion increase;
  • Feeling of loneliness;
  • Spontaneous aggression;
  • Sexual attraction is aggravated.

The lesson of this period is to learn to choose your words carefully. If some situation has caused your distrust, double-check the information and only then act. It is very beneficial to chant the mantra: “OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI” during this new moon.

The New Moon In Anuradha Nakshatra

According to Vedic astrology, the November new moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Anuradha Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Anuradha is a Saturn-ruled nakshatra that is symbolized by a lotus. Saturn’s rulership over this nakshatra will bring our karma to the surface. This may result in some delays in our plans, obstacles on our way, and challenges. Many of us may feel frustrated, angry, and apathetic because of this. However, we should remember that Saturn teaches us patience and determination. Therefore, those who can master these qualities will be rewarded by Saturn. Similarly to the lotus (the symbol of Anuradha nakshatra), flowering is preceded by a long upward journey through murky waters before arriving into the light. Remember, during this lunar month, be patient, stay determined, and you will eventually reach success in whatever you’re doing. Don’t let obstacles stop you!

Anuradha nakshatra also promotes balance in relationships. Therefore, it’s an excellent time to embrace your leadership and organizational skills. This is a good time for working in large groups of people, socializing, and putting energy into your romantic relationships

The new moon in Anuradha nakshatra signifies a particularly auspicious time for spiritual practice, which is great for softening the impact of Saturn on your life.

Health-related Issues

Anuradha nakshatra may cause chest infections, nose bleeds, constipation, hemorrhoids, high fever, menstrual problems, and weakness of the bladder, genitals, rectum, or pubic bone. It can also cause heart problems. 

Dos and Don’ts During the September New Moon

Amavasya is one of the best days for donations. When you’re making donations during the new moon, the beneficial effect of it is greatly enhanced, and your negative karma gets purified.

Our emotions play a very important role during the new moon. If you are happy on this day, you will become even happier; if you are unhappy – you will become unhappier. Any of our qualities are strengthened on this day. Therefore, the new moon is a very important time for spiritual seekers since the effect of any puja or recited mantra becomes even stronger on this day.

Amavasya is a great time for new beginnings. This is the time to discard old habits and thoughts, all failures, and embrace the new experience that the new moon promises us.

Favorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Completing tasks
  • Paying off debts
  • Throwing away the old and unnecessary things
  • Fasting
  • Giving donations and gifts
  • Meeting with your parents or other family members
  • Performing any spiritual practices
  • House cleaning (it will help you to clean not only the space around you but also your mind)
  • Honoring deceased ancestors (you can just think about them or look at their pictures)
  • Doing charity (you can donate anything except money)
  • Tuning in to harmony and love
  • Forgiving yourself and others

Unfavorable activities during Amavasya:

  • Making important purchases
  • Getting married
  • Making important appointments
  • Start training
  • Making promises
  • Surgeries
  • Start building a house, or enter the house
  • Making final decisions
  • Taking trips, business trips, travel
  • Making repairs, renovations
  • Appointing important meetings that can affect the execution of transactions, the conduct of business, etc.
  • Making money transactions (investing money, transferring large sums, borrowing or lend);
  • Overworking

Manifesting On New Moon

Vision Board Template Manifesting Image

It’s very beneficial to use positive affirmations during the new moon. During this time, affirmations have a special power – they make your positive thoughts and intentions grow and gain strength more quickly. That is why such practices as creating a vision board or Reiki wish box will be particularly effective on the new moon.

Here are some examples of the high-vibe affirmations you can practice on the New Moon:

  • Love is my inspiration, my conversation, and my life! Peace is my natural state! Gratitude is my way of seeing and being! The face of God greets me everywhere I go!
  • Every cell of my body temple celebrates health and wholeness!
  • All my relationships match the high vibration of unconditional love!
  • Positive thoughts revitalize my body temple!
  • Abundance blesses every aspect of my life!
  • I am guided, governed, and gifted by the eternal presence of Spirit within me! The high frequency of divine love resounds through all of my relationships! Excellence is encoded in my soul and evident in my expression! A consciousness of awe and wonder makes things possible in my life!
  • My commitment to peace, love, and kindness raises the vibrations of the planet!
  • The sweet water of appreciation bathes everything I do!

The Moon Mantra

During the New Moon, it’s beneficial to chant the Moon mantra “Om Chandraya Namaha” 108 times. This powerful mantra vibrates with the energy of the Moon. Chanting this beautiful mantra will help you see things more clearly and look beyond “illusions” to see the deeper meaning in things and the truth that lies within.

Buddha Shakyamuni Mantra

It is very beneficial to chant the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra during the new moon. Recite “Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha” 3, 7, 21, or 108 times. When chanting the mantra, visualize how the Divine Light purifies all your subtle bodies and frees your consciousness from outdated programs.

Chanting the Buddha Shakyamuni mantra brings a change in our consciousness, helps to reach enlightenment, inspires us with new ideas, and gives us confidence in our abilities. Also, it relieves uncertainty and distorted perceptions of reality.

The Bottom Line

Although this lunar month promises to bring lots of emotions to the surface, it also has great potential for our transformation and growth. If we can stay determined in our spiritual practice, our moral principles, and our higher goals, we will discover great opportunities for achieving something really amazing. The November New Moon doesn’t promise us a quiet time but invites us to re-discover our inner potential, to reconnect with the community, and find ways to serve humanity. Saturn is going to test us, but this test is only designed to make us stronger and to boost our personal evolution. Spiritual practices are essential during this new moon. They will help you to reconnect with your Higher Self and soften the impact of Saturn on your life. The lessons will still be there, but you will be able to understand them more quickly and easily. In general, this is a good time for emotional cleansing, releasing old energy, and finding new ways to spread your Light on this planet.

Lunar Eclipse on November 8th: Karmic Lessons, Unexpected Shifts, & Big Changes

Published

on

Lunar Eclipse on November 8th Image

The total Lunar eclipse will occur on Tuesday, November 8th. This lunar eclipse is going to be an extraordinary astrological event for several reasons:

  1. As the full Moon is in Aries, it is conjunct Uranus, which is responsible for sudden and unexpected changes.
  2. Mars is in retrograde motion – which intensifies anger, violence, and armed conflicts.
  3. The lunar eclipse will occur in the lunar mansion of Bharani nakshatra which is famous for intensifying karma and bringing to the surface the karmic debts. It also makes people violent and physically aggressive.

In this article, I will share what we can expect from this time according to Vedic Astrology (Jyotish). Also, I will share with you what opportunities are hidden in this eclipse and what we can do to neutralize its negative influence on us.

Lunar Eclipse on November 8th

A Lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth, sun, and moon align in a way that causes the Earth to cast a shadow onto the moon, making the moon appear reddish.

The partial Eclipse begins at 1:09 A.M. PT (4:09 A.M. ET). The full Eclipse begins at 2:16 A.M. PT (5:16 A.M. ET). The maximum Eclipse occurs at 2:59 A.M. PT (5:59 A.M. ET). The full Eclipse ends at 3:41 A.M. PT (6:41 A.M. ET). The partial Eclipse ends at 4:49 A.M. PT (7:49 A.M. ET).

The total Lunar eclipse will be visible across Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Ocean, North America, most of South America, parts of northern and eastern Europe, parts of Russia (the Far East, Transbaikalia, Northern, and Eastern Siberia), and the northern part of Greenland.

If you live in these parts of the world, you should take serious measures to protect yourself from the eclipse (described below), and do NOT look at the eclipse.

The Full Moon Eclipse from Vedic Astrology Perspective

According to Vedic Astrology (Jyotish), lunar nodes – Rahu and Ketu – take part in the eclipse. By their nature, lunar nodes are formless clumps of unfavorable energies. They can be compared in some ways with points of radioactive energy. Radiation is invisible, but its consequences are known to everyone.

However, from the perspective of Vedic Astrology, such eclipses are not harmful in the literal sense of the word for our physical bodies, but they instead affect our inner world. Solar eclipses affect our consciousness and subconscious, and lunar eclipses affect our mind and psyche.

To understand how the upcoming Lunar eclipse will affect us, we need to understand the nature of the Moon from the perspective of Vedic Astrology.

The moon supports our mental calmness and clarity of mind. Therefore, three days before and three days after the eclipse, we can usually see an increase in quarrels and conflicts. People become more aggressive and intolerant. As a result, accidents, violent acts, and terrorist attacks may happen.

Mentally, the number of fears and emotions increases. At the physical level, the moon can manifest its effects in disturbances in the lymphatic and circulatory systems and aggravate lung problems. The moon is also associated with water. Therefore, there may be dysfunctions of fluid metabolism and hydro balance in the body. In addition, a lunar eclipse can create problems with water transport. And also, there is a possibility of threats from water, such as floods, tsunamis, storms, etc.

The main effect of the eclipse appears in life with a delay of 6 or 18 months after the eclipse. Therefore, it is essential to monitor your thoughts and desires at the moment of the eclipse.

The Full Moon In Bharani Nakshatra

The Full Harvest Moon 2021 image

The lunar eclipse on November 8th will occur in the lunar mansion of Bharani nakshatra. This nakshatra is a Venus-ruled nakshatra that has a terrible character and brings unfavorable effects. It represents the phase of transformation and destruction (refers to Lord Shiva). Therefore, we have to be extra focused on completing our projects and tasks since, during this time, we can be easily destructed.

Bharani nakshatra also intensifies our karmas. During the time of the eclipse, our karmas are going to ripen with speed and rapidity, forcing significant changes upon us in swift succession. The influence of Bharani nakshatra may make us feel subdued and slightly introverted.

Bharani also has a reputation for severity and ferocity. It doesn’t bring diplomatic skills. Instead, it makes people violent and physically aggressive. Therefore, make sure you watch your temper during this time. It also makes sense to stay away from any crowded places if possible.

Bharani symbolizes rebirth and breakthroughs. It will force us to review and transform our old belief systems and ways of thinking. The death of old paradigms will eventually give birth to a new philosophy and bring us healing and personal growth opportunities.

Health-related Issues

The influence of Bharani nakshatra may cause muscular spasms, injuries to the face and neck, a weakness of the body’s connective tissue, and fevers.

Sutak: Particularly Unfavorable Time

Sutak is an exceptionally unfavorable time before the eclipse. It begins 9 hours before the peak of the eclipse. During this time, the most destructive energy accumulates in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Count down 9 hours from the beginning of the eclipse in your region — this is the beginning of an unfavorable period. Note that Sutak is even more unfavorable than the eclipse itself.

Do not schedule any important things for this time. Observe a feasible fast to mitigate the impact of the eclipse. Oil massage, drinking water, combing hair, brushing teeth, and being involved in sexual activities are not recommended during this time.

Recommendations for the Lunar Eclipse on November 8th

5 Full Moon Effects on Empaths Image

This Lunar eclipse on November 8th will have a significant impact on everyone. We will experience a release from restraining factors, and new life changes will begin. This is the time when one period ends, and the next comes.

The eclipse will karmically scan each of us and reveal our debts. We need to be prepared to face any consequences of our past actions. Performing the practices described below will help us soften the karmic lessons and align ourselves to the rhythms of our planet and the Universe.

Here are some essential recommendations for this Lunar eclipse based on ancient teachings:

  • put thoughts and emotions in order;
  • practice mindfulness;
  • do not get provoked by others;
  • show more love for yourself and others;
  • let go of everything that doesn’t serve you anymore – toxic relationships, old connections, negative thought patterns, bad habits, etc. Clear space for the new chapter of your life;
  • DO NOT observe the eclipse and DO NOT leave the house during the eclipse hours (keep your blinds/curtains closed);
  • DO NOT start new projects, cases, or transactions during this time. The moon causes emotional instability. Therefore, anything new started during this time will not work out. There is also a significant risk of various mistakes and miscalculations;
  • postpone trips, if possible;
  • DO NOT eat at least 3 hours before and after the eclipse (ideally would be fasting 9 hours before and after the eclipse);
  • avoid crowded places;
  • DO NOT eat food that is exposed to the eclipse. Make sure you cook fresh food after the eclipse;
  • postpone physical activity;
  • DO NOT perform psychic readings or hypnosis during the eclipse time;
  • DO NOT make big purchases;
  • STAY AWAY from any arguments, conflicts, or unpleasant talks;
  • donate;
  • DO NOT plan a wedding on this day;
  • if possible, postpone your cosmetologist or dental appointment.

By following these simple recommendations, you will be able to avoid the negative influence of a lunar eclipse. To make it easier to get through the eclipse:

  • Take a shower before and after the eclipse or, at least wash your face and hands. Water is the element of the Moon. Therefore, it’s a perfect way to align yourself with its energy;
  • Meditate during the eclipse;
  • Read prayers or chant mantras.

The lunar eclipse will affect us especially strongly during the three days: November 7th, 8th, and 9th. But we can start seeing its effect 1-2 weeks before the actual eclipse. We can also keep noticing its influence for about 1-2 weeks after the eclipse.

Mantras For Lunar Eclipse

These mantras will help you neutralize the Lunar eclipse’s negative influences and align yourself with the cosmic energies and the Divine plan. You can chant these mantras during the eclipse or listen to them.

#1: Om Som Somaya Namah

#2: OM SHRAAM SHREEM SHRAUM SAH CHANDRAMASE NAMAHA

#3: Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

#4: Om Namah Shivaya

#5: Om Dum Durgaye Namaha

The Bottom Line

Any eclipse is a reboot of humanity’s consciousness. Eclipses can be compared to the “Reset” button on a computer when the only way to get the computer working again is to restart it. Therefore, we should be mindful of the importance of the role of eclipses in our lives because this is our chance to “reset” our consciousness and our lives.

It is very beneficial to work with subconscious programs during the eclipse time. It is better to write down all those qualities you would like to transmute in advance. During the first half of the eclipse and at its peak – in meditation, mentally transmute them into the positive qualities you would like to have. After the peak of the eclipse, mentally say those positive qualities and absorb them into the body in meditation. This practice is simple but very effective.

Also, remember that each eclipse is a powerful opportunity for us to purify our karma and evolve spiritually. This is an excellent time for our personal and collective evolution that carries tremendous potential for humanity and the planet.
