A Once in Lifetime Experience

Today, December 21, 2010, marks a rare and beautiful natural convergence. On this day of the winter solstice, the longest and darkest night of the year, there occurred a full lunar eclipse beginning at approximately 2:00 AM. According to NASA, the last time the winter solstice and a lunar eclipse occurred simultaneously was about 372 years ago. The next such occurrence is scheduled for Dec. 21, 2094. Since I don't expect to be around in 2094, I braved the frigid temperatures outdoors and watched the eclipse in real time with my son until it reached totality. Then we retreated indoors to thaw out.

The winter solstice marks the end of long dark nights and heralds the coming of longer days and more light. From a numerological perspective, today's date, 12-21-2010 is a triple 3 day (1+2=3, 2+1=3, 2+0+1+0=3) which equals 9, the number of endings, of letting go of the old and preparing to embrace the new. It brings forth the opportunity to end those behaviors that are not life affirming and which prevent you from achieving your full purpose and potential.

Whether you subscribe to esoteric philosophy or not, may this winter solstice full moon lunar eclipse be the beginning of a bright and wonderful future for you.
