Lunar Eclipse

Convert negative lunar eclipse energies to positive benefits

The Lunar Eclipse Phenomenon

  • Lunar eclipses are natural phenomena like solar eclipses. A moon eclipse occurs when the shadow of the earth fall upon the moon, blocking the sun’s rays from falling on the moon. As with a sun eclipse, exposure to the moon eclipse energies creates an negative energy situation for individuals.
  • As for sun eclipses, pregnant women should not expose themselves to the moon eclipse energies, nor should anyone watch such an event either directly or indirectly (through a water reflection or opaque film etc.) Where there is a total moon eclipse, even the areas not directly viewing the eclipse will be affected, so people there should also follow the remedies and precautions. The eclipse energies start 45 minutes before the penumbral (light) shadow passes through your location, and ends 45 minutes after the umbral (dark) shadow passes through your location.

Key Physical difference between solar and lunar eclipse

  • Physically, there is a key difference: In the case of the sun eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and earth blocking the sun’s rays by it’s body–casting a shadow on the earth.In the case of the moon eclipse the shadow of the earth’s body blocks out the rays of the sun from reaching the moon–the earth casts a shadow (new window) on the moon.
  • Although in both cases there is a planetary or heavenly body blocking the rays of the sun–relative to the earth where we are, in the sun eclipse there is a direct obstruction of the sun’s rays by the moon as viewed from earth. From space also this would be visible, where all three–sun, moon and earth would be simultaneously visible along with the eclipse shadow. In the case of the moon eclipse, the earth would shadow the moon while no physical body would intervene between the earth and moon. This difference creates negative energies of a different nature during the eclipses.
