How to restore equilibrium between a Solar and Lunar Eclipse
We are navigating through two eclipses in a row, from the 20 March 2015 Spring Equinox / New Moon – Full Solar Eclipse to the 5th April Easter/ Passover and Hanuman Jayanti 4th April ( Birthday of Hanuman – the monkey god) / Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! This also corresponds to an important transition from Winter to Spring. Eclipses are events of cosmic/planetary alignment when the power of the emotional mind ( represented by the Moon ) is amplified , hence we can be affected by becoming highly sensitive and confused. How to stay grounded in times of great activation ? By simply remaining anchored in the power of our true nature, that is essentially Prana / the inherent intelligence of all living being.
As we are fast approaching the end of another Solar cycle (the turning point of the year called Sandhia in Sanskrit, means joint/ juncture) i feel naturally drawn to Akasha, the Element Space and to Meditate on large scale events , like the revolution of the planets around the Sun and the movement of the Sun around the Centre of our Galaxy ( the Milky Way ) .
Wherever there is a turning point ( end of a cycle) there is a natural deceleration of our brainwaves, then a bend ( Sandhia – transition) and then acceleration resumes ( our normal rhythm of day to day life) . Here the transition and change in direction is clearly marked by the Sun : peak of darkness at Winter Solstice /transition/ Sandhia and return of the Light /change in direction / increase in energy in the form of Charged Prana radiated from the Sun.
Therefore this is a perfect time to practice Akasha Dharana and Darshan, Concentration on the Space Element and Visualisation of the Cosmos. Akasha is the infinite Space before creation as well as the container of everything that is manifested and can be perceived as the invisible Space between things that interconnects them as well as the infinite Space surrounding things.
