Total Eclipse of the Moon~Buddhist Thought for the Day

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth."
~ Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta

I chose this quote today not only because it spoke to me personally
but also in honor of the lunar eclipse happening this week. 

According to Susan Miller (via,
Eclipses "shine the bright light of truth",
"act as brilliant illuminators",
"are especially effective at revealing someone's character or true motivations".

They "have a way of changing perspective...
as though a puzzle piece suddenly fell from the sky, right into your hands",
"bring unexpected changes of direction",
"play with our sense of time by compressing it and speeding things up".

With three eclipses in a row (each two weeks apart~ one on June 1st ~solar~,
another on the 15th ~lunar~ and another coming on July 1st ~solar again~,
it could be a BIG month of changes and/or illumination.
That's a lot of alignment among our 'time planets' too.

If you're experiencing a lot of change or emotional upheaval right now, don't worry.
The eclipses just rattle our foundations a little (or a lot, as the case may be)
and force us to make changes we might not have otherwise made,
get us out of that rut, nudge us on to the next level.
They call it evolving and we all get to do it.
Just take care of your health, and
hold on to your hats just in case
 the floodgates may
be opening.

Ok, now that we've been forewarned,
I'm ready (especially for that puzzle piece).
Are you?
