This talk is about using eclipses for personal empowerment. We take a look at the mythology of eclipses and the astronomy of the eclipse as a Shadow phenomenon and a disruption of the dark/light fractal of time. We also cover the basic mechanics of the lunar nodes and bendings, and identify nodal themes in the chart. We learn how the Dragon’s Head is bringing in new energy for growth and the Dragon’s tail is releasing old energy which is no longer useful. The lecture concludes with a specific look at the eclipse of November 13, 2012, with practical tips for channeling the energy into useful forms.
