THE SOUL CLEANSING POWER OF THE SOLAR ECLIPSE
Have you been feeling frazzled, strung out and pent up? If you look at the world around us it seems we’ve gone mad. Tensions are at an all time high and everyone is about to pop. There is a major planetary event on August 21, 2017 which last occurred back in 1979. It is a total solar eclipse that will last for several minutes across the USA. I believe that these epic planetary events hold a lot of power in what is happening here on earth. I’ll talk about the spiritual significance of solar eclipses and also show how each astrological sign can use it to their own best interests. The moon will come and wipe the sun and we can wipe certain areas of our lives clean with astrology as our guide. This solar eclipse will touch our very cores and we can use it as a soul cleansing super power to enlighten specific areas of our lives.
Solar Eclipses have always been revered by mankind. In the past they were feared and said to portend some cataclysmic events. Ancient cultures all had myths about creatures in the sky who would swallow the sun and the apocalyptic havoc that would cause. Now astrologers are scrambling to see how it will unfold in world current affairs but I am more concerned in delving into personal astrology and laying down a path on which it can be used to walk towards self-liberation. There are ways that we can tune into the solar eclipse’s power and use it to transform areas of our lives that are needing attention. Imagine that there is a big part of your life where you are being given a chance at a fresh start. A bright shining redo button that you can push and make things happen in your world. That is the power that is available to each of us, according to our signs, and here are the ways that each sign can take advantage of this cosmic occurrence as a do-over in specific parts of our psyches.
