Remember the saying “Knowledge is power“? Well, that goes doubly for eclipse energy.

Not only are there life areas that are supported (as usual), but also some that you want to keep an eye on for awhile.

Here is some knowledge about today’s eclipse that can help empower you to use it to your advantage.

Solar Eclipse in Rohini

Today, June 1, at 5:16 PM EDT, we have the first of 3 eclipses that all occur within one month of each other.

It’s a partial solar eclipse that takes place in Rohini Nakshatra, at 17°6′ of sidereal Taurus. (Wondering what a Nakshatra is? Take a look at this post and find out which one relates to you.)

Effects on Security & Growth

Taurus is an earth sign, and it represents our foundation and our security, including financial.

Rohini is marked by the bright red star Aldebaran that is the eye of the bull. Its shakti or power is that of growth.

Eclipses show where energy is being blocked, so an eclipse in this Nakshatra can show a stunting of or uncertainty about growth of all kinds, including areas related to our security.

You will likely see this play out on the world stage for the next 6 months (especially in areas where the eclipse is visible), perhaps with a continuation of the already slow economic growth. But because growth and earth are so interconnected here as well, I would expect to see some issues with crops too.

In your personal life, this will not have too much of an effect unless you’ve got your Ascendant (rising degree) or a planet at or very near the eclipse degree. If you do, indications are similar in that you will likely see a stunting of growth in the area(s) indicated by what that planet and house mean in your chart.

But in general, this can be a good time to evaluate what is thriving and what is languishing in your life. Are you putting your attention on what you want to grow? Now is a good time to turn away from or actively sever from your life those things that are not fruitful but are sapping your time or energy.

Effects on Diet & Romance

This applies to all areas, but in particular, look at the areas of diet and romance.

The grahas (planets) that cause eclipses are related to poison, dishonesty, and the like. So watch that these things don’t worm their way into your diet and romantic relationships in the next few weeks.

Rohini is related to growth (and agriculture/food), so evaluate if what you eat is actually wholesome for you and also if its production supports Mother Earth (and forms of life) or causes harm or imbalance. Let’s all take a little better care of Her and us right now.

Rohini is also an erotic maiden who invokes much jealousy from others.

Take a look at your romantic relationships and if there is anything unhealthy going on, this could be a good time to bring it to a close. This would include things like jealousies and over-indulgences, or relationships that are built on anything unethical, even if slight.

You will actually be supported in letting go of these things over the next 2 weeks especially and the next few months more generally.

Upcoming Lunar Eclipse

On June 15, we have the 2nd eclipse of this 3 eclipse series. Stay tuned for a post on that closer to that date.

In the meantime, see my previous post about working with eclipse energy as it applies to all eclipses. I continue to update that post as things occur to me.

    This is so fascinating! Yesterday (June 1) I felt a really strong sense all day of letting go and making a definite effort to sever an energy sapping situation in my life. And I felt very confident and supported that this time it’s going to work! I don’t know anything about eclipses/astrology, but I find it very amazing that I felt that strong sense of positive energy specific to my situation.

    Thanks for sharing this fascinating information, Patti.

      Hi Leah,

      Oh, that is really cool! Thanks so much for sharing that! I think you must be sensitive enough to harmonize naturally with the subtle energies. Some people are better at that than others, and it helps to go with it instead of against it.

      I, too, had a very interesting day, but in a different way. I’m glad I knew it was an eclipse or I would have thought I’d stepped into a different world, it was that different; kind of surreal. Even the weather, the look of the sky, humidity in the desert, and cicadas screeching for the first time this year.

      Thanks for coming by!
