For time immemorial, eclipses were said to be a bad omen. In ancient China, they believed a dragon would devour the sun; thus, people would bang drums and make loud noises to scare away the creature. Whereas in India, Hindu mythology suggested that a demon named Rahu tried to disguise himself during a banquet of the gods and drink the nectar of the Gods to attain immortality, however, he was discovered by Vishnu and beheaded. In South America, they believed the appearance of an eclipse was the tell-tale sign of the anger of the powerful sun God, Inti. They often fasted and offered sacrifices to appease him.
Symbolism of an Eclipse
In recent times, people across the globe believe that an eclipse is a sign that big changes are going to take place and is a time for self-reflection on the decisions we make in life. An eclipse is a harbinger of change to help us evolve into better versions of ourselves. The moon is said to be a symbol of rejuvenation as, during different periods of the month, it undergoes phases. It allows us to look deep within ourselves and discover what is hidden under the surface. It allows you to reflect, motivate and overcome personal obstacles. The sun is a symbol of illumination and purification, it boosts positivity while encouraging us to find clarity in our lives. Together, the sun and moon are an exceptional combination to help us rediscover ourselves while building and growing towards a productive yet fulfilling future.
