BE STILL: If you’re in the path of the solar eclipse and feeling the inclination to go inward, you aren’t alone. As my friend @aquarian_dawn wrote tonight: “In many cultures, an eclipse was/is a time to be still. No striving, no trying, no output. In their place folks sought rest and receptivity and seclusion. A stillness takes overtakes the land, the temperature drops, animals lie still and birds roost and fall silent.” My mother, an devoted student of Vedic astrology (the ancient Hindu school of astrology), has told me that the recommendation given by gurus is to spend the hours of the eclipse indoors, immersed in meditation and chanting mantras as a solar eclipse are considered to a time of complicated, challenging energy. People posting in my instagram feed seem to be split, half are feeling inward and full of anxiety or introspection, others are social and celebratory. How are you experiencing this #eclipse?
