I’ve been talking to many of my metaphysical friends lately, and a theme that has come up is the recent Solar Eclipse that took place on February 26th. In Astrology, solar eclipses are transitional phases where we shed a old pattern/belief/person/lifestyle so that we can move forward towards enlightenment. Solar Eclipses are also tied to New Moons, and as I have stated in numerous blog posts, new moons equal new beginnings. They are major astrological events that can shake the reality in which we live.
Drastic changes in one’s life are unsettling. These changes could be sudden, or have been building for a while. None the less, major transitions are not easy. They require courage and faith that the universe has a plan for us, and this uncomfortably that we are dealing with right now is crucial for our soul’s growth.
I myself have been feeling the effects of the Solar Eclipse very strongly. I am still unsure what the universe has in store for me, but as of now, I am trying to “go-with-the-flow”, which makes sense seeing as how this Solar Eclipse/New Moon was under Pisces, sign of the fish.
In honor of the Solar Eclipse, and for anyone affected by the energies of the celestial bodies, I’ve compiled a crystal pairing to assist in these transitional times:
Moonstone has always connected to lunar energies. As this Solar Eclipse also coincides with a New Moon, it is important to honor what the moon represents. New Moons signify new beginnings, as does the energy of moonstone. Moonstone also connects to Pisces energy, as this is the zodiac sign this Eclipse/New Moon is under.
This grounding stone offers wonderful protective energy in times of change. It is linked to the death/rebirth aspect, and as Solar Eclipses are a transition from old to new, this is a useful stone during this time. Assisting in transitions, it overcomes fear, and releases old worn-out patterns and conditioning so that new ones can be developed.
The Solar Eclipse can bring about a lot of emotional stress. Kunzite is a very beneficial stone for the heart. It alleviates emotional heartache, healing the trauma and bringing forth peace and universal love in its place. It promotes introspection, so that you can reflect and understand why these changes are occurring for you at this time.
Seraphinite is a high vibrational stone that connects to the angelic realm. It is a stone of spiritual enlightenment, connecting to the crown and heart chakras. It can assist with reviewing the progress of life, and what changes you need to make in order to find peace and fulfillment.
