For those who might not know at the end of this month, we will be having a penumbral lunar eclipse. This for those who might not know is something that happens at night to the moon on seemingly rare occasions. 

This penumbral lunar eclipse will be coming on roughly the 29th/30th of November and it will be bringing with it some interesting energies. While it won’t be a huge difference in how the moon looks, it will make a big difference in how it feels. This kind of thing is quite interesting and well, it’s pretty important to be aware of. 

Time and Date wrote as follows on what a penumbral lunar eclipse is before we dive into these energies:

In a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the more diffuse outer shadow of Earth – the penumbra – falls on the moon’s face. This third kind of lunar eclipse is much more subtle, and much more difficult to observe, than either a total or partial eclipse of the moon. There is never a dark bite taken out of the moon, as in a partial eclipse. The eclipse never progresses to reach the dramatic minutes of totality. At best, at mid-eclipse, very observant people will notice a dark shading on the moon’s face. Others will look and notice nothing at all.

Now, when it comes to the energies of this ordeal we should be aware that lunar eclipses of all kinds are things that are meant to help us grow. They push us to let go and really work harder to make the changes we need to make. While in the past people were afraid of solar and lunar eclipses, now we embrace them and the energies they bring forth. 

Lunar eclipses be them partial, complete, or penumbral are all bringing a lot to the table. They help us to bring about abundance and for some are needed to work through the rough times we’re facing. While on a physical level, you may feel as if you’re quite drained but that is not the case. You are simply being reminded to take things slow and being offered a chance to take a break and think through the things before you. 

While you might feel emotionally charged during this eclipse and while its energies are present you will get through this just fine. The sensitivity you end up feeling will help you let go of the baggage you’ve been carrying for so long. Do not isolate during this time, if you need to talk about something, find someone who cares that will listen to you. Leaning on your support system is never a bad idea. 

The eclipse in itself is going to help you find yourself more and you need to let yourself explore more properly. Things are not as complex as you’re making them out to be. I know, it might be confusing but you deserve the growth that is coming, period.
