Eclipse is called as ‘grahan’ in ancient Sanskrit. We know what this phenomenon means from an astronomical standpoint, where a Lunar Eclipse occurs when earth comes between the line of vision of Sun and the Moon.
Because of this, in the case of a Lunar Eclipse, we find that earth seems to cause a shadow on the moon.

Energetically speaking, those who are sensitive to cosmic energy changes can feel these energy shifts days and sometimes even weeks in advance. There have been many strong energy pattern changes in recent times, and we can already observe their effects in the ever-turbulent world around us!
When these happen at an individual level, it can lead to accidents, misunderstandings, arguments and even fights. When such thoughtless actions happen at a larger scale, we can see rifts between nations and mass movements of crowds in a certain direction, leading to riots and even financial markets crashes or short frothy rise!!
So, what can we do to protect ourselves during this and for that matter every lunar eclipse? The best thing to do is to be observant of one’s own internal working.
Watch your thoughts and emotions- is this really how you are feeling (then there should be a deep real cause) or are you reacting to something/someone and are coming under the influence/grasp of surrounding forces?
Take an extra moment and think thru before saying or doing anything. Under the turbulent energies of a lunar eclipse, it is very possible that your actions are thoughtless and rash, which you will later regret. So best to breathe deep, take a few minutes to clearly think thru before taking any actions particularly when it comes to important situations like your relationships, finances and so on…
Lunar Eclipse is a great time to forgive and forget the past… It is time to bless all that has been in your life. Those things, situations, and people who you feel have completed their run in your life… it is time to let them go… Not with anger or regret… not with pain or grievance, but with love, joy and gratitude.
As for the unpleasant people and situations… what is the point in being angry or upset at them. This does not mean you condone the situation or the wrongful acts of the perpetrator, it simply means you “choose” to bless that situation with forgiveness and gratitude… and leave it behind. This way, you can lessen your own burden and walk further along your path of spiritual development with fortitude and resolve.
