This is an Annular Eclipse, which means that the Moon is positioned further away from the Earth than at a Total Eclipse, so it does not completely obscure the Sun, but leaves a ring (annulus) of sunlight visible around the Moon’s dark disk. According to NASA’s Fred Espenak, “annular eclipses have a special charm all their own. During an annular eclipse, sunbeams turn into little rings of light. The best place to see this is on the sun-dappled ground beneath a leafy tree. Hundreds of circular shadows can be found there.
It seems that Solar Eclipses have a profound effect on the Earth’s subtle energy grids and ley lines. All powerful events that occur on Earth leave energetic memory imprints in the Earth’s energy grids. These can become amplified and perpetuated by the energy flow through the grids, which is fed by the movements of the Sun, Moon and planets overhead. Powerful negative imprints, such as war, misuse of power or emotional trauma can block or damage the energy flow in a particular region of the planet, causing the energy to become distorted.
Eclipses provides opportunities to release This is a bit like deleting an old computer programme, loading a new one, and then re-booting the system. Annular Eclipses have a very subtle effect on the energy grids, releasing, transforming and healing the etheric energy ‘blueprint’ that can enable new spiritual archetypes to emerge into collective consciousness. these negative energy imprints and enable new, positive patterns to become encoded into the Earth grids. The path of the Annular Eclipse on 20th May will intersect the Plumed Serpent – Great Male Dragon line at two locations - Mount Fuji in Japan and Mount Shasta in California. Adak Island is the pivotal point, lying almost exactly midway between these two sacred mountains, and is the nearest land to the point of maximum eclipse. The eclipse on 20th May is a South Node eclipse, which will release the energetic ‘thought-forms’ and patriarchal archetypes of at least the last 5,125¼ years, and probably the last 25,626 years of the Galactic Great Year. The Eclipse will release negative imprints left from the mis-aligned expression of male power in the Pacific Ocean grids, and along the entire length of the Plumed Serpent – Great Male Dragon line, as it encircles the Earth. So, it will affect the consciousness of the whole planet.
As the eclipse releases these old patterns, held within the grids, it will bring the possibility for seeding a new expression of male power that is fully aligned with the heart and the spiritual will, and so enable collective healing at a personal and global level. This marks the beginning of a whole new paradigm of consciousness.
The Pleiades – seeding the new consciousness
The significance of this Eclipse is further enhanced by the exact conjunction of the Sun and Moon with the Pleiades. To the Maya, the Pleiades represent the handful of maize seeds from which the original humans were born. These seeds are symbolically re-planted in the Earth at the beginning of each new ‘Sun’ cycle of 5,125¼ years. (Five Sun cycles complete one full processional cycle of 25,626 years). While the old patriarchal patterns of the last 5125¼ years are being released by the Eclipse, hidden behind the eclipsing Sun, the Pleiades will be planting the seeds of the new consciousness that will begin to birth the new 5125¼ year cycle, that begins after 21st December 2012, as the Solstice Sun emerges from the centre of the Galactic Equator, which the Maya perceived as the ‘womb of Creation’.
This Eclipse marks the ‘point of no return’ on our journey towards the December Solstice 2012. The more we are each able to release emotional attachments, thoughts and ideologies that hold us back from experiencing full conscious awareness of our connection with the Oneness of all Life, the smoother the transition will be for us. The May Eclipse brings a golden opportunity to create Right Relations in all aspects of our lives and stand fully in the power of who we truly are and what we truly believe.
