Eclipses in 2023
Brenda Black, C.A.P.
Solar Eclipses occur when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for the viewer on Earth. At a Lunar Eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon, bringing unconscious feelings to the surface. Under a Lunar Eclipse our emotions are magnified. It is a time when we can let go of emotional attachments that no longer serve us.
Avoid major decisions during the week before an eclipse. Be very careful during this time and try not to buy major luxury items, sign large contracts or even get a haircut. You may get a new perspective after the eclipses are over. Eclipses are game changers and have been noted by both humans and animals through many centuries.
