#happyeclipseday You know I LOVE the moon, I am so excited to see her in a staring role, but I also recently learned about the Navajo tradition in regards to the solar eclipse. I ❤️ it, and find it so beautiful! I shared it with my children, and will have it in my heart and mind today! Here is part of the article I shared, “The sun and moon are powerful deities in Navajo culture. The sun controls and regulates the universe, while the moon controls and regulates the earth.
Such responsibility is draining. Navajos believe the sun dies during an eclipse — the term for the phenomenon, Jóhonaa’éí daaztsą́, means "the sun is dead" — and then is reborn through an "intimate" process between the sun and moon.
The whole process of this is that it's rejuvenation, renewal of energy, renewal of hope that you’re going to be able to carry on from this season to the next and be able to move on in a good way,”. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona/2017/08/20/navajos-mark-solar-eclipse-sacred-phenomenon-not-watching/574707001/
