Both solar and lunar eclipses are a love of many, and good news for you they seem to be abundant this year. As a matter of fact, there will be a total lunar eclipse coming in just the next few days!
While eclipses are abundant in energy, they happen much more often than you might think. For those people who might not be aware, the difference between a solar and lunar eclipse is a big one.
Solar eclipses can be either total or partial and occur during the new moon phase. This meaning, the sun and moon are positioned at the same degree within the same sign. During this occurrence, the moon passes between the sun and the Earth causing the sun to become temporarily obscured or blocked.
Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, occur during the full moon phase and during their occurrence reflect the Earth’s shadow. This happens because the Earth is wedged between the sun and the moon. During a lunar eclipse the moon ends up a red/orange color. So you will hear the phrase “blood moon” brought up a lot during a lunar eclipse.
Each eclipse can and will hold something different for you. It all depends on the sign it occurs in and what is going on in the celestial world. For instance, the lunar eclipse to come on the 27th will be in Aquarius. This means that something will be coming to a close within your life.
You cannot avoid the impact to come from these cosmic events, but you can prepare yourself for it. I like to practice white light meditation in the days before, of, and after each eclipse. This helps us all to maintain our personal energies during these trying times.

Do not obsess over them but please allow them to work their magic on you. Staying calm and collected might seem hard, it can really help you grow as a person. Eclipses are powerful but positive, nothing bad will come from this! Even the hard things in life can turn out to be useful in the end.
