Beware of the Lunar Eclipse May 5th 2023 to May 12th 2023

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

Lunar Eclipse will occur in the Airy sign of Libra. It is necessary to remember that Libra, Aquarius & Gemini – all the three zodiac signs complete the circle of Airy signs and so when Lunar eclipse occurs in Libra – it is going to impact the other two airy signs – Aquarius and Gemini with the same intensity as it is going to impact the zodiac of Libra. So in simple words – natives belonging to Libra, Aquarius and Gemini will be facing certain difficult moments of their life during this Lunar Eclipse occurring on 5th May 2023.

Libra natives will face issues regarding health and mental troubles, depression and frustration. Many of you feel frustrated during this phase of lunar eclipse. Primarily – you will be stressed due to your career issues – either you will have a real bad time on job or you will be facing the challenge of being jobless – either way – your profession and your career will become the center point of your troubles – so stay cautious and remember to chant “Aum Namaha Shivaya” 108 times for the entire week of Lunar eclipse starting from 5th May to 12th May.

Aquarius natives will have to stay away from all kind of legal troubles and disputes. Some of you may suffer due to chronic diseases. While some of you may get infected with some dangerous virus. Stay cautious as Corona virus is again on the rise. Overall this Lunar eclipse period – your secret enemies will definitely try to harm you – and you will be in deep troubles – so it is better that you don’t increase your enemies. Don’t hurt others by your offensive comments or rude behavior. If you really want to overcome the negative effects of this Lunar eclipse then maintain a sattvic diet and remember to chant every day the Ganesha Mantra – “Aum Gam Ganapataye Namaha” – chant for the entire week starting from 5th May to 12th May.

Gemini natives will have to face many financial difficulties as well as some of you may face family issues during this lunar eclipse period.

Now that I have discussed the impact of lunar eclipse of the fiery signs – I will now share the impact of this eclipse on watery signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces sign.

Cancer natives will go through a lot of emotional turmoil and may even face certain issues in relationships. During the lunar eclipse period – you should control your mind and avoid getting caught in any fights or arguments. In worst scenarios this lunar eclipse period may even push you towards suicidal tendencies but you must not entertain any such negative thoughts and instead you should focus on positive thoughts and should try to be with your friends and family.

So during this low phase – it is advisable that you take a break from your work.

So stay faithful and be consistent in your efforts.

Now that I have discussed the impact of lunar eclipse of the watery signs – I will now share the impact of this eclipse on earthy signs – Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus sign.

Capricorn natives may have to face certain issues in their marriage. Problems to your marriage partner or problems from your marriage partner – either way you will remain busy in your married life problems. If you are a social figure then be careful when dealing with the public.

Virgo natives may face certain issues from friends or siblings. Certain disappointments regarding financial profits or money will impact your mental peace. In case you have in-laws then some trouble from your in-laws is bound to disturb your peace of mind. Overall this lunar eclipse period may negatively impact your profit margins, create financial troubles and you may face certain allegations from your in-laws during this lunar eclipse period.

If you chant with faith and consistency then you will suffer less during this lunar eclipse period.

Taurus sign natives may face certain issues with younger siblings. You may fall short in communicating your feelings to others and thus others may misunderstand you.

Chant the Ganesha Mantra – Aum Gam Ganapataye Namaha daily starting from May 5th to May 12th – this will keep you away from all the troubles and you will be able to focus on your goals.

Overall the Lunar Eclipse occurring on 5th May is going to cause much havoc and sufferings in the life of many people however those meditative souls, those who do daily meditations, those who chant daily – these evolving souls will be able to sail smoothly through these difficult phase of Lunar eclipse day. However those negative men and women who abuse others, who cause much harm to others, who do black magic on others – such men and women will suffer a lot and will have to pay heavily in the days to come. Always remember KARMA always catch you – no matter where you go and what you do. Your Karma always follows you wherever you go and that is why the message to all my followers is in one line – DO GOOD and you will receive good – always remember – happiness is not readymade it comes from your own actions. Yesterday somebody said “When I sit down to meditate – my mind is filled with millions of thoughts – I cannot concentrate – I cannot meditate – please help me – please show me the way…”

I said to him – the answer is simple but to know the answer you must first listen to this beautiful story – One day Buddha is passing by a forest. It is a hot summer day and he is feeling very thirsty. He says to Ananda, his chief disciple, “Ananda, you go back. Just three, four miles back we passed a small stream of water. You bring a little water — take my begging bowl. I am feeling very thirsty and tired.” He had become old.

Ananda goes back, but by the time he reaches the stream, a few bullock carts have just passed through the stream and they have made the whole stream muddy. Dead leaves which had settled into the bed have risen up; it is no longer possible to drink this water — it is too dirty. He comes back empty-handed, and he says, “You will have to wait a little. I will go ahead. I have heard that just two, three miles ahead there is a big river. I will bring water from there.”

But Buddha insists. He says, “You go back and bring water from the same stream.”

Ananda could not understand the insistence, but if the master says so, the disciple has to follow. Seeing the absurdity of it — that again he will have to walk three, four miles, and he knows that water is not worth drinking — he goes.

When he is going, Buddha says, “And don’t come back if the water is still dirty. If it is dirty, you simply sit on the bank silently. Don’t do anything, don’t get into the stream. Sit on the bank silently and watch. Sooner or later the water will be clear again, and then you fill the bowl and come back.”

Ananda goes there. Buddha is right: the water is almost clear, the leaves have moved, the dust has settled. But it is not absolutely clear yet, so he sits on the bank just watching the river flow by. Slowly slowly, it becomes crystal-clear. Then he comes dancing. Then he understands why Buddha was so insistent. There was a certain message in it for him, and he understood the message. He gave the water to Buddha, and he thanked Buddha, touched his feet.

Buddha says, “What are you doing? I should thank you that you have brought water for me.”

Ananda says, “Now I can understand. First I was angry; I didn’t show it, but I was angry because it was absurd to go back. But now I understand the message. This is what I actually needed in this moment. The same is the case with my mind — sitting on the bank of that small stream, I became aware that the same is the case with my mind. If I jump into the stream I will make it dirty again. If I jump into the mind more noise is created, more problems start coming up, surfacing. Sitting by the side I learned the technique.

“Now I will be sitting by the side of my mind too, watching it with all its dirtiness and problems and old leaves and hurts and wounds, memories, desires. Unconcerned I will sit on the bank and wait for the moment when everything is clear.”

And it happens on its own accord, because the moment you sit on the bank of your mind you are no longer giving energy to it. This is real meditation. Meditation is the art of transcendence. Just watch your mind – just watch your thoughts – but do not act on it – just be a witness and then slowly slowly the mud of thoughts will settle down and you will be able to taste the clean water – the bliss and this bliss is the blessing of the Buddha – he is smiling, he is happy to see that you are evolving – that you are coming closer and closer to that beautiful moment of self-realization.

Although 5th May is a lunar eclipse day still on the same day – Buddha Poornima is also celebrated – and I think that there cannot be such a great coincidence where on one side you have the challenges of lunar eclipse and on the other end you have the great teachings of Buddha – if you hold on to His teachings – you will definitely sail smoothly through this rough path of lunar eclipse. It all depends on what you choose – what you focus on – because what you focus on – grows. Focus on your self growth – focus on daily chanting and meditations. And then you will be alright.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
