How to Prepare for Upcoming Solar and Lunar Eclipses

Lunar eclipse coming

Eclipse season will be here soon, here’s what you can expect and how to prepare for this cosmic dance between the Sun, Moon, and Earth.

Both solar and lunar eclipses hold strong energy in astrology. They can shake us up and stimulate change within ourselves to reach our highest power. We will soon see a partial solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. What can we expect from these cosmic events?

“Eclipses take place when we have lunar events, which are full moons or new moons that fall close to the nodal axis,” Astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut said. “So what is the nodal axis? The nodal axis is the axis of intersection between the orbit of the moon around the Earth and the orbit of Earth around the Sun. That intersection has a north and south, and those points are called nodes. So, the north node represents our destiny; or future, where we’re headed as humanity, what is our destination, what is our direction, where do we need to focus on. In the south, the south node represents our past; what we need to purge, what we need to cleanse, what we need to integrate, what we need to let go…”. 

The first eclipse will be on April 30, but Arraut says we will feel it a lot sooner.

“We usually start feeling it around a month before the first eclipse takes place. So, this first eclipse that takes place, the 30th of April, brings many changes into our lives, since all eclipses are like catalysts that align us with our highest purpose. Eclipses literally will cleanse, detox, and be used as tools to show us what path we need to follow,” Arraut said.

Soon after the solar eclipse,we will see a lunar eclipse in May. How does this relate to the solar eclipse we just had?

“We can expect endings, closures, cleansings through situations that needed to detox from our lives,” she said. “So, Scorpio is already the energy of emotional detox of power and empowerment. So, we can be feeling very emotional close to this eclipse, but it’s also going to give us the power to move forward with those changes we’re already starting with the previous eclipse. So, it’s very normal to be experiencing this and to let go of certain situations with this eclipse. But we can definitely see a lot of endings, and a lot of closing times for people to walk out of our lives, and people to walk into our lives — especially with the previous eclipse.”

How should we prepare, mentally and physically for these changes?

“Many people are going to experience death and rebirth from their own ashes and new beings creating, literally, brand new lives for themselves, moving toward a much more practical, much more positive, growing reality. But in order for that to happen we need to let go of what no longer serves us,” Arraut said.

What can we look forward to, and take and take advantage of this eclipse season?

“Overall, we could use this eclipse season to focus on building a new reality for us, focus on enjoying Earth, focus on the pleasures of being conscious  — of being a conscious human being appreciating what makes us happy. Letting go of whatever brings suffering or letting go and cleansing that emotional baggage, because that is what the cosmic energy is guiding us toward, to take care of what we value the most and let go of all the intensity and what is no longer necessary within our lives,” she said.

Science Says Wormhole Travel is Real; Can We Use it for Exotic Propulsion?

Wormhole Travel Now Possible

Once believed to be sci-fi fantasy, new research suggests we may be able to achieve interstellar travel using wormholes as shortcuts through spacetime.

Recently, physicist Pascal Koiran at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in France published a pre-print study detailing the potential that matter could enter the event horizon of a black hole and pass through a wormhole and exit out the other end intact. Though still highly theoretical, wormholes are believed to be incredibly unstable as they exist as a tunnel between a black hole and a white hole in another part of the universe. 

But because nothing, including light, can escape a black hole once it has crossed its event horizon, physicists have believed that matter would need to somehow enter the wormhole outside of the event horizon in order to safely pass through.

Dr. Simeon Hein, director of the Institute for Resonance, explains the mind-bending physics of this theoretical phenomenon.

“So the idea people were beginning to think, ‘well, what happens to the matter and energy that gets condensed and condensed into a black hole?’” Dr. Hein said. “The idea was that it had to be ejected somewhere else beyond that point in space. And that became the idea of a wormhole to another point in spacetime where all the matter and energy would be ejected from the black hole to conserve this idea of symmetry which is the foundation of modern physics — that there’s kind of a basic symmetry to the universe. And so the other side of the wormhole is a white hole.”

If wormholes have been conceptualized by theoretical physics for decades, what is so novel about the mathematics proposed in this recent paper?

“Physicist Pascal Koiran in France, he looked at another way to measure what’s going on in the mathematics of black holes. He used a different metric than Einstein would have used because back in the 1950s, two different physicists, David Finkelstein and Sir Arthur Eddington of the Royal Society in the UK, both proposed that there was this point of no return in the black hole where once you got past a certain point, it was no longer symmetrical, you couldn’t leave anymore, the so-called Schwarzschild radius,” Dr. Hein said.

“Past this point, you would just keep getting more compressed and you would have to go through the wormhole. So, using the so-called Finkelstein-Eddington metric — and a metric, by the way, is kind of the idea of a standard unit of measurement, a standard unit of anything: speed, direction, or position — using this measurement Koiran was able to show that it’s actually more stable than you think; that there is some stability even at the highest level of gravitational compression in a black hole. This would suggest that moving through it, maybe something really would survive.”
