The Lunar Eclipse & Your Mental Health

This series is based upon the hexagram expressions of the Iching by the month for 2021. This guidance is generally seen in the collective consciousness of human beings worldwide.

The previous month was about amassment or Hexagram 26. Similar to a mountain that accumulates energy to store and use as time passes, this amassment of energy is gathered from self-study, and knowing ourselves better.

This month May 5 to June 5th 2021, is in Hexagram 43, where we see the need to eliminate what is not useful in our lives.

  • Reforming/ “revolution” is to notice any destructive force in your life with resolve and remove it

  • Hasty Actions are inappropriate

  • Gaining the cooperative virtuous energies of people in your life are wise

In addition,

All things follow a certain nature.

In this month, May 26th the moon has a total lunar eclipse on the full moon. A total solar eclipse always comes 10 days before or after a lunar eclipse. In general there are physiological, mental and spiritual implications of celestial bodies and the like on earth that affect all living beings.

On the date of the lunar eclipse, it is best to fortify your spiritual and physical self. By following these steps, you can improve your personal well-being and spiritual development:

  1. Don't eat cooked food on days of a lunar or solar eclipse

  2. Do a 12 hour fast from 6pm to 6am on every full moon for the rest of this year. And if possible lunar and solar eclipses as well.

  3. Here is a link to specific and high energy days for fasting on planetary days throughout every year.

Submitted Questions

What role does the moon play in our lives?

How do new/full moons, eclipses influence our lives?

The moon like any celestial body has a certain nature. It not only influences the tides, but water in general. This includes the water in your body. Aspects of water in the Human body are blood, chymera (Gallbladder fluid), mucus, sexual fluid and spinal fluid.

During a full moon the gravitational force of the moon can bring all fluids of loving beings to their surface. This is expressed in the mind through mania, mental health concerns, disease states, and many other physiological health concerns.

Fortunately, many wise ones such as yogis utilized events such as satsangs, Darshan and for those willing to observe, listen and choose wisely to connect and avoid certain maladies and troubles.

In general and especially this month;

  1. Be mindful of Extremes

  2. Emotional Turmoil (Highs and Lows)

  3. The feelings of being alone, loss or isolation

Until next time
