Do you have a headache or neck pain this week? Feeling stressed and emotional? A Solar Eclipse coming off a total lunar eclipse might be why.
This year’s only solar eclipse is on its way and, coupled with the recent total lunar eclipse, could be wreaking havoc on our bodies, hearts and minds.
Eclipses work in pairs, and with a lunar and solar eclipse occurring within a fortnight of each other, we should be paying attention to any emotional and physical effects we may be experiencing.
A lunar and solar eclipse are as powerful as each other, and with both happening so close together a spiritual process has started but isn’t complete until sometime after this Thursday’s (June 10th) solar eclipse.
With its approach I am hearing reports from many people that they are now experiencing more physical effects, particularly headaches, neck and shoulder pain.
This is because we are now making things more physical, including our emotions and decisions as the internal changes have already been made following May 26’s total lunar eclipse and super blood moon.
Lunar eclipses are about integrating experiences; the focus is internal or within – while solar eclipses are about taking action and the focus is external. You make the inner changes first then do something about the situation by releasing these experiences physically.
Despite the fact the solar eclipse won’t be seen in Australia with the naked eye (only in the northern hemisphere), we will still experience the spiritual, emotional and physical consequences.
Just because we don’t see it physically, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. It is a time of new beginnings and a new cycle moving forward. Turn your face to the future.
The eclipse phenomena will also have some special flow on effects for our star signs. If people have their astrology natal chart with any planets near 19 degrees of the mutable signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces and Virgo, then they will be very strongly affected.
The solar eclipse is in Gemini, this means that Gemini and other air signs Libra and Aquarius will also be affected and will need to have a good handle on their emotions.
They are also doubly affected because Mercury is in Retrograde in Gemini now and until June 21st, making for lots of misunderstandings and miscommunications and problems with technology.
The solar eclipse in Gemini is also all about masculine principles.
Women have inner masculine forces and it’s time to be more proactive, independent and externally focussed so they can get more of what they want in the world.
Body meridians and power switches called chakras also release physical and spiritual emotions.
Following the lunar eclipse, chakras are opening up and releasing the past… turbulent energy comes up and we may be feeling irritable, angry, argumentative, volatile, upset, unmotivated, exhausted, lethargic – even bloated.
The good news is we should feel alleviation from these symptoms following Thursday’s solar eclipse.
People should be starting to feel better, and our minds and emotions should be clearer so we can start to realise the direction we need to go in to move forward.
Whether that’s coming to terms with ending a relationship, focusing on work or business after an initial shock or confrontation, or whatever it may be – starting to plan and taking action will help.
In Australia, the June 10th solar eclipse will be “felt” here at 8.41pm AEST, while the best actual viewing locations will be in countries including Canada, Russia and Greenland.
The eclipse is sometimes referred to as the Ring of Fire because the moon doesn’t completely block out the sun and leaves a ring of light. There will still be plenty of live streams happening.
Tips for people to look after themselves during the eclipse period:
- Meditate: be mindful of what you are feeling, feelings are every bit as valid as thoughts.
- Have some quiet time: be alone with your thoughts and think about things you want to accomplish physically, with your health and wellbeing, in the workplace, or in relationships.
- Write down your feelings in a diary or journal: particularly if you don’t feel like you can talk to someone trusted about your emotions.
- Try not to look back at the past or into the future: not being present in your body or with your feelings is a problem. Be truly present and at home in your body now.
Here is my YouTube Video detailing physical manifestations which are likely to happen by star sign during the solar eclipse period, and they’re also below:
Aries (March 21 to April 19): Communications and your local environment are highlighted. There are new beginnings coming soon in communications, publications, promotion, study or perhaps communications with distant family members including siblings. Be extra careful now with Mercury Retrograde with miscommunications and misunderstandings!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Seeds can be planted now which will transform your money, possessions and communications. Events from the past may pop up and any feelings with those may also influence your current thinking, especially regarding the things you value. Mercury is Retrograde so ensure everything important is in writing. There may be glitches involving your money or the things you value.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20): It’s time to think about a new look! Change your appearance and your core beliefs about a new direction you could take in life. You can be more perceptive and sensitive now which enables you to pick up what’s going on with others now. A new cycle is beginning for you when you can more closely align your life to your core beliefs.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22): You may feel sensitive and perhaps even a little moody so it’s best to grab some quiet time now. It’s a great time to meditate and pay special attention to your dreams and intuitions. It’s also worth contemplating your life’s direction and spiritual journey. Plant some seeds now in your spiritual life which will help to rejuvenate and enliven you as they grow in future.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): There are new beginnings with groups and connections. Perhaps some new friends come into your life, and you may also feel a need for community now. Deepening your relationships is worthwhile. You could attend functions, socialize, and make some new friends.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): New beginnings are starting in your house of vocation, career and life direction. Your reputation and social status may also feature strongly now. Whatever you do tends to be more public than usual. The world sees more of you personally, whether you want them to or not.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Perhaps you’re thinking about going on a break somewhere? Travel and expanding your life generally could be on your mind now. Your life can become larger now through study or meeting new people, especially those with foreign connections. Your spiritual life also expands so look at the big picture and don’t be afraid to try new things.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): You may have concerns about joint finances or intimacy now. Do try to be objective especially around women and your partner because your emotions are likely to show. There are new beginnings around shared resources such as finances, property or some deep hidden things like secrets.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): Give your time and attention to close relationships especially with women or significant partners both personal and business. There could be a rejuvenation of existing arrangement or new partnerships can form. You could also plant seeds to get a casual relationship onto a more committed level now.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19): New beginnings are likely in your health or general wellbeing. Your everyday habits and work could also have new procedures or arrangements. Self-improvement both mind and body could be on your mind. You may try to turn your emotions into something practical by starting something new.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18): It’s time to come out of your shell by expressing your true feelings, especially your playful or dramatic side. Perhaps romance is on your agenda too. You may also be more interested in drama, sports and entertainment in general. The world of the child comes closer to you now.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Spend some time at home or with your family. There are opportunities for positive growth at home and you may do some renovations, gardening or perhaps your home becomes more of a sanctuary where people feel comfortable, private and secure. Relationships with women or your mother may feature now.
