Fortunately, you're more than equipped to do so. The snapshot of the planets when we were born tell a deeper story, and can help us to piece together part of our soul plan. Eclipses are one of those occurrences that give us the opportunity to peer into the deeper plan of our soul and to pay attention to where we feel guided. By paying attention and tuning within, we can understand where we need to be and what lessons we are destined to fulfil.
It is easy for us to hear this and believe that our soul wants us to learn lessons so we can live these grand, abundant lives that are free from pain and suffering, but our soul really comes here to experience all shades.
We cannot escape this life without pain and suffering. Just the same, we cannot escape this life without knowing laughter and love. Life is about learning, it is about growing, it is about experiencing.
On the soul journey, there is no good or bad, right or wrong, there just is. No lesson, no journey is wasted.
Whenever we have an Eclipse, it is an opportunity for us all to raise our consciousness and to pay attention to the energies around us. It is our chance to tune in to our soul path and to see which way the Universe is guiding us.
