Eclipses are cosmic safety valves
Rudolf Steiner: "Eclipses of the Sun and Moon, recurring as they do in the course of every year, may really be looked upon as safety valves. A safety valve is there to avert danger, to provide an outlet for something or other — steam, for instance — at the right moment. One of the safety valves which makes its appearance in the cosmos, and to which we give the name of a solar eclipse, serves the purpose of carrying out into space in a Luciferic way the evil that spreads over the Earth, in order that evil may work havoc in a wider, less concentrated sphere. The other safety valve, the lunar eclipse, exists for the purpose of allowing the evil thoughts which are present in the cosmos to approach those human beings who are desirous of being possessed by them."
