Are you feel anxious, jittery, apprehensive or excited?

Do you feel like Something Big is about to happen?

If so, you’re probably tuned in to the transformative energies of an explosive eclipse series this summer (or winter, if you’re in the southern hemisphere).

Eclipses are special alignments of the Earth, Sun and Moon that happen every six months, in pairs or triads. During an eclipse, a shadow crosses over the face of the Sun or Moon, and we explore light and shadow, conscious and unconscious. There’s a trio coming up soon: A on June 1, on June 15 and another on July 1.

Whether you can see them or not, you’ll feel the effects of these potent alignments. The June 15 lunar eclipse aligns with , and the July 1 new moon solar eclipse forms a volatile Grand conjunct the great star Sirius. The June Solstice falls in the middle of all that. The new moon solar eclipse on June 1 initiates the sequence and serves as an accelerator.

Since ancient times, eclipses have been associated with abrupt, often unexpected, changes. Beginning two to three weeks in advance, and continuing for several weeks following these special , we’ll feel the effects of shifting electromagnetic frequencies. Life feels unstable and shaky.

Because of the specific ways the eclipse configurations line up in this series, changes will be sudden, forceful and highly transformative. There’s enormous potential in that.

Are there things in your life that you know need to change?  Have you been yearning to release addictions and get healthy? Are you itching to turn your life around, maybe switch careers, end a relationship, relocate, transform your body, get more sustainable?

Eclipses break down longstanding . So now’s the perfect time.


What to expect

These volatile energies will express as sudden, unexpected changes, chaos, upheaval and movement.

At times you’re likely to feel off-balance, nervous, agitated and emotional. Other times, a sense of euphoria sweeps you away.

It’s easy to lose your focus and become distracted. Sleep and eating patterns often change during eclipse periods.

Physical changes may show up. Sudden illnesses and accidents are common as we constantly adjust to the dynamic energies. Chronic conditions may become more severe, or you may finally break through and heal a longstanding problem.

Jobs and relationships may suddenly end, or begin. You may find yourself relocating unexpectedly. Many of our friends and family members will cross into spirit.

An increase in seismic activity usually accompanies eclipses, and with this series Earth changes are likely to be intense.

These are all symptoms of the reconfiguration that’s currently under way in the transition to the next world age. Along with the of destruction, we’re beginning to manifest at a miraculous rate by capturing and focusing the creative forces.
