It’s All About Perspective

“New Beginnings Are Often Disguised As Painful Endings.”
—Lao Tzu

Depending upon where you are in the world when the Solar Eclipse takes place you might see it as a bad omen or a sign of good fortune.

Many of the myths surrounding the Solar Eclipse are that of misfortune. Several cultures believed that an animal was eating the sun because the gods were angry at those down below. Yet, in Italy, the lore is that flowers planted during the Solar Eclipse are the brightest of all. So, it isn’t all doom and gloom. (Source)

It is merely a matter of perspective. Just because it seems as though it is the “end of the world” doesn’t mean it is. It can be a whole new beginning if you look at it right.
