Why Are Eclipses Spiritually Significant?
Most of us know that an eclipse occurs when a celestial body, usually the sun or the moon, moves into the shadow of another. We tend to use the term in relation only to the sun and the moon and the way we can view them from Earth. During an eclipse, all three line up together.
The solar eclipse occurs when the shadow of the moon falls on the surface of our planet, obstructing the rays of the Sun. The lunar one takes place when the moon itself enters the shadow cast by the Earth.
Both are of immense spiritual importance and can have positive and negative repercussions across the world.
