The fascination that solar eclipses cause on humans is eternal.
In ancient Greece eclipses were considered unfortunate and could even cause the interruption of a battle. This happened in 585 BC when Thales of Miletus was the first to predict a solar eclipse, as recorded by Herodotus. The eclipse was the reason for the cessation of hostilities between the armies of Medeans and Lideans.
Today we do not accept the unfortunate nature of eclipses and we tend to accept them as Astronomical events beyond our powers.
In the astrological level eclipses occur on the nodes of the Moon and involve large inflow or outflow of energy to or from the subconscious. It is obvious that we, as human beings, can do nothing to control these flows that disrupt our lives over time, and not instantaneous.
The truth is that eclipses show our inability to control the forces of nature and therefore they are triggering reflection, questions and philosophical mood.
This eclipse of the 8 and 9th of March 2016 occurs in South East Asia and the Pacific Ocean. The input of energy on our planet is considered to happen from the North Pole and the North Node of the Moon. Main source of this energy is the Sun. Visible results of the energy input are the Northern Lights. A phenomenon that captivates, not accidentally, our senses ..
We, as beings of the planet, are affected and tune with eclipses along with many other organizations of our planet. The way in which our biological clocks are coordinated with the cycle of the moon is a long-standing and scientifically acceptable. (More in my article "Moon, the New Ascendant of modern Astrology")
It is not necessary to have visual contact with the eclipse to be affected by it! The effects are felt by a mechanism that is product of the evolution of Earth organisms regardless of the position on the surface of our globe .. How and why many beings of Earth have developed a mechanism sensitive to the phases of the moon is a huge knowledge asset that cannot be answered in a few lines. But it is logical to conclude that natural selection led to this solution.
We, as human beings, are a piece of nature in harmony with the environment and thus the Earth, the Moon, as part of the wider environment, and the sun with our planetary system. Any turbulence of this system are felt by people on Earth through a resonance mechanism whose exact mode we do not know yet. The turbulences are fluctuations of the Electromagnetic, gravitational and perhaps a new form of fields that remain to be discovered.
Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac argues that different movements and positions of the planets, the Sun and the Moon bring different qualities to people on Earth. Some phases of the Moon, as the nearest body to Earth, are of particular importance for people. Positions relative to the Sun and Earth, of course! Especially when we have these absolute alignments that we call eclipses things are getting more complexed!
