This is an Annular Eclipse, which means that the Moon is positioned further away from the Earth than at a Total Eclipse, so it does not completely obscure the Sun, but leaves a ring (annulus) of sunlight visible around the Moon’s dark disk. According to NASA’s Fred Espenak, “annular eclipses have a special charm all their own. During an annular eclipse, sunbeams turn into little rings of light. The best place to see this is on the sun-dappled ground beneath a leafy tree. Hundreds of circular shadows can be found there1.”
It seems that Solar Eclipses have a profound effect on the Earth’s subtle energy grids and ley lines. All powerful events that occur on Earth leave energetic memory imprints in the Earth’s energy grids. These can become amplified and perpetuated by the energy flow through the grids, which is fed by the movements of the Sun, Moon and planets overhead. Powerful negative imprints, such as war, misuse of power or emotional trauma can block or damage the energy flow in a particular region of the planet, causing the energy to become distorted.
Eclipses provides opportunities to release these negative energy imprints and enable new, positive patterns to become encoded into the Earth grids. Hamish Miller, the renowned UK dowser found that, as an Eclipse shadow passes overhead, the Earth’s subtle energy lines power down to almost nothing, becoming indiscernible to dowsing; then as the Sun’s light returns, the grids spring back into life. This is a bit like deleting an old computer programme, loading a new one, and then re-booting the system. Annular Eclipses have a very subtle effect on the energy grids, releasing, transforming and healing the etheric energy ‘blueprint’ that can enable new spiritual archetypes to emerge into collective consciousness.
The Plumed Serpent & the Rainbow Serpent
Author Robert Coon describes two major Earth energy lines, or Dragon lines, encircling the planet from east to west. These are the ‘Plumed Serpent’ or Great Male Dragon line, and the ‘Rainbow Serpent’ or Great Female Dragon line. They are like the two primary acupuncture ‘meridians’ of the global energy system, similar to the two main yang and yin acupuncture meridians in the human body – the Governor Vessel and the Conception Vessel. Everything else in the Earth’s energy grids is fed by these two vast circulating reservoirs of spiritual life-force energies.
The path of the Annular Eclipse on 20th May will intersect the Plumed Serpent – Great Male Dragon line at two locations – Mount Fuji in Japan and Mount Shasta in California. Adak Island is the pivotal point, lying almost exactly midway between these two sacred mountains, and is the nearest land to the point of maximum eclipse.

Eclipses occur when the Sun and Moon are conjunct the Moon’s North or South Node. South Node eclipses can help us release outmoded patterns, attitudes and archetypes; North Node eclipses enable new patterns and archetypes be seeded within collective consciousness.
Releasing the Past – Seeding the Future
The eclipse on 20th May is a South Node eclipse, which will release the energetic ‘thought-forms’ and patriarchal archetypes of at least the last 5,125¼ years, and probably the last 25,626 years of the Galactic Great Year. The Eclipse will release negative imprints left from the mis-aligned expression of male power in the Pacific Ocean grids, and along the entire length of the Plumed Serpent – Great Male Dragon line, as it encircles the Earth. So, it will affect the consciousness of the whole planet.
In the Pacific Ocean grids, the mis-aligned use of male power expressed itself in some of the most horrendous battles of WWII, particularly in such important energy points as Midway Island, which lies right at the very heart centre of the North Pacific grid; similarly at Iwo Jima and Hawaii itself, with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The imbalances in the grid were deeply aggravated by the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And of course more recently, due to the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima power plant.
From 1946 to 1958, the United States conducted 67 nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands, a pivotal anchor point in the North Pacific Grid. The total yield of the 67 tests was the equivalent of more than 7,000 Hiroshima bombs! At the Aleutians themselves, in 1969 the United States detonated a one megaton nuclear weapon at Amchitka Island – the small band of protesters who sailed out there to try to prevent this were responsible for birthing the Greenpeace environmental movement.
On a journey, with a small group of people, out to Akutan in the Aleutians in 2005, we became aware of profound levels of grief that were held within these grids. At first it appeared to be grief that resulted from human suffering, but we also had a startling experience of this grief being expressed by the Earth herself through one of the group members. Quite apart from the relatively recent abuses already mentioned, there is also the grief that has been generated by the imposition of patriarchal religious systems on indigenous peoples throughout the Pacific, who had a long tradition and profound understanding of the Earth as a sacred being.
Now it is time for the final healing of that long-held grief within these most crucial of planetary energy grids, so that the planet can begin to truly emerge into the light, after the December 21st Solstice, 2012. As the eclipse releases these old patterns, held within the grids, it will bring the possibility for seeding a new expression of male power that is fully aligned with the heart and the spiritual will, and so enable collective healing at a personal and global level. This marks the beginning of a whole new paradigm of consciousness.
The Pleiades – seeding the new consciousness
The significance of this Eclipse is further enhanced by the exact conjunction of the Sun and Moon with the Pleiades. This well known cluster of stars, above Taurus, has held a significant position in world mythology throughout the Ages. To the Maya, the Pleiades represent the handful of maize seeds from which the original humans were born. These seeds are symbolically re-planted in the Earth at the beginning of each new ‘Sun’ cycle of 5,125¼ years. (Five Sun cycles complete one full precessional cycle of 25,626 years).
While the old patriarchal patterns of the last 5125¼ years are being released by the Eclipse, hidden behind the eclipsing Sun, the Pleiades will be planting the seeds of the new consciousness that will begin to birth the new 5125¼ year cycle, that begins after 21st December 2012, as the Solstice Sun emerges from the centre of the Galactic Equator, which the Maya perceived as the ‘womb of Creation’.
This Eclipse marks the ‘point of no return’ on our journey towards the December Solstice 2012. The more we are each able to release emotional attachments, thoughts and ideologies that hold us back from experiencing full conscious awareness of our connection with the Oneness of all Life, the smoother the transition will be for us. The May Eclipse brings a golden opportunity to create Right Relations in all aspects of our lives and stand fully in the power of who we truly are and what we truly believe.
