This eclipse is all about your love life, and it offers a protective, tender moment to reflect and decide what to invest in. .
A solar eclipse occurs when a new moon moves between the earth and the sun, preventing some or all of the sun's rays from reaching the earth. Although the sun is 400 times wider than the moon, it is also 400 times farther away by cosmic coincidence. Therefore the two objects appear to be the same size in our sky.
Astronomers can predict eclipses because the Earth and Moon have very predictable orbits. Then why isn't there a solar eclipse every month? The moon's orbit is usually tilted a few degrees north or south with respect to the earth. When the moon eclipses the sun, it casts two types of shadows on the earth: a smaller, darker shadow known as an umbra and a larger shadow known as a penumbra.
There are four types of solar eclipses. The first and most spectacular is a total solar eclipse when the moon completely covers the surface of the sun. A total eclipse can only be seen when you are in umbra all over the earth is known as th The path of totality.
People within penumbra only see a partial eclipse, the second type. From this point of view, the moon goes outside the path of the Totality passing eccentrically in front of the sun and never covering its surface completely annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly in front of the sun. In contrast to a total solar eclipse, however, the moon appears too small to completely cover the sun.
The moon's orbit is elliptical, so it is sometimes closer to Earth and sometimes further away. Finally, a hybrid solar eclipse is when the position of the moon between the earth and the sun is so finely balanced that the curvature of the earth plays a role. The moon will be further from some parts of the earth along the eclipse path, resulting in an annular eclipse in other parts, the moon will be just close enough to completely cover the sun, resulting in a total solar eclipse.
While a total solar eclipse occurs somewhere on earth every or two years, every point on earth experiences the event only about every 400 years - Pit ched hum) (static crackle) We pause this article for an important safety notice. Looking directly at the sun, even during a solar eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage. Fortunately, there are ways to safely enjoy an eclipse.
The easiest way to do this is to use certified solar eclipse observation glasses that are shaded a thousand times darker than regular sunglasses. You can also view the solar eclipse indirectly by making a pinhole viewer. Simply poke a small hole in a piece of cardboard.
Hold the cardboard towards the sun so that the sun's image can be projected onto a flat surface. Make sure you only look at the surface and not through the box. Just before the moon completely covers the sun, low-lying valleys at the edge of the moon are the only places where sunlight continues to penetrate - remaining brilliant rays of light, known as Baily's pearls, disappear one by one.
And finally, a single bead of light known as a diamond ring, which signals that you are only seconds away from being dead, remains. to experience ality. As soon as the last pearl disappears and the moon completely covers the sun's surface, the view through your eclipse glasses will be pitch black.
Totality is reached. At this point none of the sun's rays reach your eyes and it is the only time that You can safely take your glasses off. Remember to put your eclipse glasses back on before the sun's rays shine through again.
Any sunlight that reaches your eyes, even for a few seconds, can cause serious damage. While a solar eclipse can last a few hours, totality usually occurs for less than three minutes. It is also known that animals and plants change their behavior during a total solar eclipse.
Songbirds can stop singing, crickets can start chirping, and flowers can even start closing in see total solar eclipses. The moon moves about an inch and a half away from the earth every year. It is estimated that in about a billion years, the moon will be too far from Earth to completely cover the sun. (elegant music)
The solar eclipse will have a positive effect on Cancer in terms of wealth gain and progress in life. They can expect to move to their desired place from their current place. .
The effects of solar eclipse on all the zodiac signs will be like this: Aries - The natives of Aries may have to bear the opposition of something in their family. You will also need to be careful in money matters. Gemini - For the people of Gemini, this solar eclipse will bring some negative situations. .
A total solar eclipse is one of nature's most awe-inspiring events. A solar eclipse is a time to focus on internal change. The sun represents our focus on our most personal desires, goals and our external self. It signifies our personality, self-expression and the tangible ways we interact in the world.
Today I'm going to give you a Chinese astrology perspective on the upcoming solar eclipse ring of fire. Stay with me. Welcome back to Choosing Gratitude.
I'm Karin from Choosegratitude.net. And on this channel I am talking about everything that has to do with the manifestation of your dream life.
If you're new here, don't forget to subscribe to the channel, click the notification bell, and give this article a thumbs up. And let's manifest our dream live by choosing gratitude. Can you believe we just went through a super powerful lunar eclipse ...
That was the blood moon, the lunar eclipse. And now, not even 10 days later, I'm talking about an impending solar eclipse. These two eclipses are so close together and each is a powerhouse.
We are living in a kind of explosion of the energy transition. This article is really very important. And before we get into today's solar eclipse, I want to make sure that you've also seen my article about the lunar eclipse that just happened.
And the effects of those eclipses usually last around six months. Check out the article about the lunar eclipse up there. First, when we talk about eclipses, I want you to understand that the energy we experience around the time of darkness is like a snapshot of the energy we will experience over the next five, six months.
OK. In order to consider this upcoming solar eclipse we have to consider the last lunar eclipse because it just happened right? It's almost like that is the yin, and now this is the yang. So we have to look at them side by side.
During this lunar eclipse, remember that the moon was in Sagittarius and the sun was in Gemini at that time. OK. The opposition between the sun and the moon created a kind of tension.
Now if we look at the solar eclipse, the moon has moved all the way from Sagittarius to the opposite of Sagittarius, the Gemini. The sun is still in Gemini, isn't it? So the sun hasn't moved that much, but the moon moves a lot faster. Now we have the sun and moon in connection in Gemini.
Every solar eclipse is a conjunction of the sun and moon, which means that the sun and moon are together. When there is a conjunction, there is an explosive energy. OK? Opposition like the lunar eclipse creates a kind of tension.
It is as if the energy is being staged, but you have not yet seen the full manifestation of it. But when the sun and moon meet in conjunction, it's like, set, set, go. And the energy just explodes.
What follows this sun-moon conjunction is the mercury. Mercury is also in the picture. And remember, mercury is the ruler over twins.
This solar eclipse and even the last lunar eclipse both have a huge impact on Gemini and Sagittarius because you know these signs are directly involved, right? So if you are a Gemini, this solar eclipse will literally create an experience of rebirth for you. OK? So it's like shedding your old skin and finding your new sense of identity. This could be a difficult time for you, especially when mercury is declining.
You know, reducing mercury is always a challenge for Gemini because mercury rules your life force. You know when mercury goes down it's like slowing down. Usually, twins aren't very good at slowing down.
They usually always think, always talk, but during this time you might feel like a slowdown in the energy now the sun and moon are creating such a big energy shift in your sign. And the mercury tries to pull you back. So you will feel like an internal war is going on.
It's like the twin in you ...
One of them wants to go this way, the other wants to go another way. So this is just something you want to be aware of. If you are not a twin but are an ascending twin or have many planets in twins, you will feel this very strongly.
And even if you are not a Gemini, I want you to pay attention to where this happens in your chart. And the other thing I want to highlight is that the sun and moon are triening the energy of Saturn. We talked about it in the previous lunar eclipse article, um, you know, we are feeling this energy of the trigon, the solar trigons, the Saturn Energy and this trine is still happening.
Remember, Saturn doesn't move as fast as the moon, right? So the sun and moon both channel the energy of Saturn very, very easily because trining is a light intake of energy and what does Saturn represent? Earth, obstacles, and a sense of hard work, right? When Saturn and the Sun are in trine, you basically have a sense of reality. You know, you just won't be fooled by dreamy ideas. And, um, interestingly, if you look at Chinese astrology on this day, June 10th, we have Yin Earth Day.
It's a yin ox day. So it's a super, super earthy day. And it's a super, super yin earth day.
Ox is essentially yin earth. And we have the heavenly trunk and the earthly branches both in Yinearth. The nuclear energy of this solar eclipse is not the sun, but actually the earth.
What is earth The earth is your center, right? The earth is earthly affairs. So I would not be surprised that we will see some earthly affairs at the center again. Now let's look at how this earth interacts with other energies around it.
In Chinese astrology, this day is the Yang Wood Horse Month and it is the Yin Metal Ox year. If we look at all of these elements, especially on the heavenly stems, which is what the top means, the first thing that struck me is that the day energy and the month energy, they are a couple again, Yang Wood and Yin Earth are a couple, when they are a couple what happened that they meet and then they disappear together. OK.
So on this day it happens that the yang wood energy, which should have been prominent today, should be in abundance. Today she is no longer there, she is gone. You know, and I also made a article about the Yang Wood Horse Month.
In this article, I'm specifically talking about June 10th and 11th. You will feel a bath of the Yang wood energy. Within this pair of yang wood and yin, the earth, the yang wood, is definitely Earth's challenger to what the nuclear energy of that day means.
You remember that nuclear energy is in the earth. Nuclear energy is being challenged a lot. Usually, when reading a Chinese chart, the first thing you want to look at is whether or not the daytime energy is challenged.
And in this case, unfortunately, it is (questioned). When the lunar eclipse happened just because it was called the blood moon eclipse, everyone freaked out. And I said if you look at Chinese astrology, it really isn't that bad.
But if you look at this solar eclipse, even though it doesn't have a scary name, it doesn't sound bloody, it's actually a bit more difficult than the lunar eclipse. What this tells me is, um, after seeing these big shifts caused by the lunar eclipse, we must face a real challenge together. And usually, yang wood is a pretty positive, prominent type of energy in Chinese astrology.
But in this case it is unfortunately not exactly positive because we do not see anything that shields this yin earth day energy. This is how the normally positive yang wood becomes a challenger. That tells me that in the next six months we might see something that we find positive, good for us, but it will turn out to be not good for us or challenge us.
And, um, I want you to watch out for the yin metal energy here too, because it's our year in Metalox, right? The yang wood is so busy working with the yin earth day energy that the yin metal energy (year) is left alone. Ordinarily, the yang wood would be there to take some of the metal's threat out of the year. Now the yang wood is busy.
So what is happening is that we are going to see a sudden surge of this yin metal energy which tells me that we are going to have a sudden volatility in the market or a sudden volatility in the economy and maybe even something like that seems so positive, so great . And it can be a trap. So if there's anything in your life in the next six months, it seemed too good to be true.
It is probably correct. It's too good to be true So avoid anything that sounds like a super great idea. OK.
You want to be pretty safe on your feet because you know what? The earth energy on the earthly branches is consistent. That tells me that the world outside is going crazy, that the world outside can be very tricky because the metal energy can suddenly soar. But you feel an increase in stability in you.
You can feel an increased earth energy. If you are willing to look inward, most people will never look inward. And if you don't, you won't feel it.
So in the next six months it is really important to look inside and find that stability, that grounding energy within you, because your world could go insane. Don't be fooled by great investment vehicles, don't be fooled by great news because - you know what - we have to kind of stay cool, just like that, ox you know, kind of stay flat and steady. This is our only way out.
And western astrology confirms that we are in a time of mercury decline, when that happens it will be a great time to slow down and look inward. Many people fear that mercury will drop, but actually this is the best time to internalize things. This is the best time to meditate on connecting with the divine, especially for signs like Gemini or Sagittarius.
You're usually very, very active, and this is actually a time for you to go against your nature and slow down, stop being distracted by the crazy things that are going on outside of us, and start catching yourself To focus stary, to find inner stability and to find spiritual connection within you and to ground yourself.
