Welcome to eclipse season 2020! As I mention in the broadcast, we have a very special series of three eclipses in one month's time. This first eclipse, which happens on June 5th is unique as its overall cycle is shortened, making it an intense time for upgrades and healing. During this time we can choose to move beyond our collective pattern on living in linear time, into the harmonious natural rhythms of circular time. We can also expand our own ability to heal by offering even greater depths of compassion.
First, linear vs circular time. Our ancestors lived by cycles of the moon and sun. They saw time as a cycle, continually renewing itself with new life, the fullness of life, and then the receding or dying off of life. They built ceremonial and time keeping sites, such as Stonehenge, to keep track of the cycles of the moon. Ancients kept track of moon cycles specifically to predict eclipses, as they understood how powerfully the moon affects all life and water on our planet.
Fast forward to modern society, where we live by linear time. Counting hours in a forward moving direction, and constantly whizzing from place to place to place.. as if there is never enough time. Hopefully, with this time for staying at home many of us can feel the need to hop off that "conveyor belt".. and step into circular time!
Second, compassion. With the stopping of linear time curing COVID, many have been challenged to reorganize, recoup and recalibrate. While this process of death and rebirth is universal, it has been sweet and easy for many of us, and extra challenging for many others. Which reminds us all that now more than ever, we can remember to take a moment and step into another person's shoes :)
