There is no denying the fact that the moon’s phases can have a significant impact on our lives, but this Friday we are about to experience an incredible energy. Not only does Friday the 13th mark the next new moon, but the start of the next lunar cycle will also be marked by a partial solar eclipse!
When we hear the word ‘eclipse,’ we often think about the lunar eclipse, a phenomenon that many of us grew up watching as a child. The solar eclipse, however, occurs when the moon moves between the sun and the Earth, blocking the sun’s light and creating a shadow here on earth. This occurs approximately 2-3 times a year, although the last time we saw a partial solar eclipse fall on Friday the 13th was in 1974!
The fact that this partial solar eclipse will fall on the new moon has a significant impact on all of our lives. The new moon is known as a time of new beginnings, as we enter into a new lunar calendar. This is the time to consider what goals you hope to achieve during the coming lunar cycle, setting your intentions for the days to come. In doing so, we are better equipped to focus our attention and energy as we move through each of the moon’s phases, increasing our chances of achieving great things. It is a time where anything is possible if we are willing to set our sights on our greatest goals and dreams, and fully commit ourselves to the hard work that it will require.
The energies of the new moon will be intensified by the fact that this new moon is also a supermoon, the closest new moon to the Earth throughout 2018. The new moon is the absence of light, as the moon is restarting its cycle, but despite your inability to see the supermoon, its energy will be profound.
This is going to line up perfectly with the energy that is brought into our lives by a partial solar eclipse, which includes a time of sudden change and transition. Not only will we see ourselves stepping into a new chapter in our lives, but it will be considerably different from our path in life up until this point. This may be triggered by someone new coming into our lives, unexpected news or a sudden struggle that can derail you from the path you were already traveling. It may be uncomfortable or even painful but know that this change is going to bring you to great places if you are willing to harness all that it has to offer. While the initial transition may be sudden, it will take days, or even weeks, for this energy to settle and for all the pieces in your life to fall into place. Be patient.
It gets better! This specific supermoon new moon partial solar eclipse will fall on Friday the 13th. While many today buy into the modern belief that this day is one of bad omens, but this is a somewhat misunderstood concept of the true meaning of this day. Throughout history, Friday the 13th was believed to be a day to celebrate the cycle of life including creation, rebirth and, yes, death. This is a day that has been associated with the Goddess Venus and her feminine power, bringing creativity, beauty, and wisdom. This will help you to think outside the box, finding more passionate goals and dreams to aspire to achieve.
All of these influences will line up to provide you with the perfect opportunity to redirect your life towards an amazing future. Ensure that you keep your heart and mind open to the coming change, and don’t be afraid to dream big!
