A Guide To Survive Eclipse Season

It is the last few months of 2020, and of course, it has to end with a bang to match the entire year. Although there is hope for a happy ending, remember that the storm does get rough before there’s a rainbow. 

There are a couple of turbulent weeks ahead before we reach the safety of 2021. The current has been swelling up for one massive wave of intensity to wash over us one last time before the year ends. 

This year’s last eclipses occur until December 14, bringing in new perspectives and the unknown. Learn more about the eclipse season and explore what this final eclipse means for you and the world around you. 

What Is An Eclipse?

An eclipse occurs when one celestial body (a planet, the sun, or moon) passes into another’s shadow. This movement causes a temporary obstruction, and there are two types of eclipses visible from the earth. 

The two types of eclipses are the solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse, and they both have different effects. According to NASA, there are two partial lunar eclipses a year, and there are one solar every 18 months.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon orbits between the sun and earth, temporarily blocking the sun’s light. This eclipse casts a shadow on the earth, sometimes not visible, and typically lasts a few minutes. 

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth orbits between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the moon. This eclipse is visible at night and lasts a few hours. A total lunar eclipse is rare and only happens at a full moon.

Many people may find that some of their plans or thoughts are accelerated during the eclipse season. The quick decisions, raised stakes, and significant changes may be overwhelming, but they’re in your favor. 

An eclipse will push you towards your destiny and open opportunities that would’ve come up at a later stage. So, when things are feeling chaotic and looking rough, remember that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

The eclipse cycle promotes growth, change, and adopting a new perspective. It is possible to be distracted and put off by these occurrences, so it is best to keep yourself grounded during this time.
