What are a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse? A solar eclipse occurs when the moon stands between the Sun and the Earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. A solar eclipse is always a new moon and in astrology tends to mark new beginnings.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth stands between the moon and the Sun, cutting off the light of the Sun from the moon. A lunar eclipse is always a full moon and usually marks endings or culmination points. They bring up memories, dreams, and emotions, so they often pack a big punch. An eclipse of the Sun will more likely focus you on a prominent male in your life father, husband, boss, or other key man.
An eclipse of the moon will center more on the prominent women in your life mother, wife, or female boss, for instance. This is not always the case, but you will find this will be a good rule of thumb. Solar eclipses work somewhat differently than lunar eclipses, and emphasize beginnings — that is why they are so exciting.
Most of the time they make us happy! Occasionally something may end too, but the accent will be more on the start than the finish. The changes could come gradually or suddenly. Still, the news or timing of those changes often comes as a surprise. If a solar eclipse falls on or within a few days of your birthday, you will certainly feel the effects of it over the course of the year.
Changes will be complete by the time you reach your next birthday. Although most solar eclipses are almost always positive, if they form hard angles to other planets, the effect on you can be jarring and difficult. This is not usually the case, but it can be at times. As you see, eclipses are not like other aspects, for they can work in a variety of ways.
I will let you know if I see something you should watch in your monthly report on Astrology Zone. Keep in mind that all eclipses are there to help you mature and grow, and that the eclipses are ultimately on your side.
Eclipses come in pairs, always as a new moon and full moon two weeks apart and come up every five-and-a-half months in one family of signs, for example Cancer-Capricorn, or Leo-Aquarius. Each family of signs lasts approximately 18 or 24 months before moving to the next family of signs, moving, say, from Cancer- Capricorn to Gemini-Sagittarius.
Events that follow an eclipse have more weight than events brought on by a normal new or full moon. In fact, an eclipse is like a new or full moon on steroids! They shake us up so that we can move from one level of maturity to another, very rapidly. They will provide whatever we need to get moving — a competitor, a rival or critic, a benefactor, funding, or some other force — that get us to think, decide, or change.
An eclipse will always give you precisely what you need to advance and evolve. They look for weak links in all circumstances and instantly and urgently bring information so that you can decide what you want to do.
Eclipses work from the outside in. In that I mean that an outside event that has nothing to do with you, and over which you have no control, will often act in a way that affects your life in a powerful, direct, and lasting way. The outside force can be a small, casual event or comment — it need not be a big — but yet it can have monumental influence on our life anyway.
Eclipses bring news of big life events that you long remember. You may sell a house or buy one, or start a new business or close one. You may get a major promotion or a new client, or be given enviable publicity, or be downsized. You may meet someone new to date, or get engaged. Often at eclipse time, we are very aware of the passage of time, and that can make us a bit wistful even when the news is very happy.
You may suddenly be expecting a baby or get news that the adoption you had hoped for is suddenly coming through. You may come in to a lot of money, or lose an important source of income. You may sign a big business deal or walk away from one. You might have surgery or win a marathon and be on TV. You may acquire a new pet, or sadly suffer the loss of one.
Alas, as you see, not all news on eclipses is happy, but eclipses do mark major life events that make us value the good parts of life even more. Eclipses often change the status of a situation. While an eclipse will always seek out the weak link in a situation to expose it to you, they are just as capable of helping you in a positive way, such as to help you find new love or be asked to interview for a big position.
The luck you uncover can be the change in status you will receive.
It peaks this year on the night of the 17th and morning of the 18th. The Leonids is an average shower, producing up to 15 meteors per hour at its peak. Have your wits about you! Just before the path ends, it barely misses Buenos Aires, the northern edge only 30 kilometers south of the center of the capital. It peaks this year on the night of October 21 and the morning of October Halloween is just around the corner. You start out on the path the trainer suggested.
Check your monthly report on Astrology Zone for how I see the eclipse affecting you. Keep your eye on your health at eclipse time, and doubly so if the eclipse is near your birthday, is in your birth sign, or is six months away from your sign i.
If you need to address a health or dental issue, get advice and help so that you can get back to feeling tip top again soon! You may feel like you are walking across a bridge to a new land at eclipse time. You are — with no ability to go back to the place you started. In that sense, after you start moving toward the new situation by enforced changes or by your own volition , the bridge will collapse — there will be no way back.
You are ready for more. The universe wants us to embrace all that is new, not go back to what is tried and true. The ancients always wrote that if you act under an eclipse, especially a full moon eclipse lunar , the plan would not work out quite the way you expected. Instead, bide your time and act a few weeks later when there will be less cosmic dust in the air and things are more settled.
Here is the rule: Try to allow some space of a week or more between the eclipse and the date you act. Sometimes it is not possible to put things off, so do your best.
It is OK to accept a new job, but might not be wise to quit one at eclipse time. When you act at eclipse time, you may be surprised at the outcome — things could backfire or create an effect that you had not anticipated.
Still, admittedly, it may be really hard to put off saying something at a full moon eclipse. Truth tends to surface like a geyser at these times! See how you feel! Eclipses will always play with our sense of time and change it by compressing it and speeding things up.
They bring events to bear today, ones that you assumed would happen months or years into the future. An eclipse comes by and one of the partners in the couple gets a big promotion and a chance to work in the London office. Suddenly the couple decides to tear up their old blueprints and instead get married immediately so that they can start their life together in London right away.
Indeed, timetables often change dramatically under eclipses. Also, at eclipse time, if one of your planets will be touched by the eclipse, you may feel your life moving on fast forward, at greatly accelerated speed. Time moves so fast, you can almost see the hands on the clock spin around!
Eclipses can help you do things you never thought you could do, overcome fears, and show yes, you CAN do it! Consider this little metaphysical story I devised for you to illustrate this point. You are not an experienced rider, so you ask the horse trainer for a gentle horse.
He suggests the perfect one for you, a horse that is even-tempered and experienced. He also suggests an appropriate path for you. Before you set off on your trail, you were told by the trainer that you will need to jump a stone fence five miles down the road but that the horse is capable of doing the jump.
You start out on the path the trainer suggested. Distracted by the gorgeous scenery, you forget about the fence until it looms suddenly in front of you. You probably would have never taken this path if you knew how big it was. You cannot imagine going over that and surviving it! Yet, it symbolizes something you want to do but are terrified to do, so you feel conflicted fear vs.
Before you can pull on the reins, you find yourself flying through the air on his back and much to your horror and yet giddy amazement, you are flying over the fence. Much to your astonishment, you land perfectly. The horse is fine and so are you — but you feel shaky and count all your fingers to be sure you are all in one piece!
It all happened so quickly! Timetables are moved up at eclipse time. You had no time to think! Now, however, you feel quite accomplished — proud of what you did, and rightly so!
It is a great moment! Had you had time to think, you may not have had the courage to try. But you did react, and you succeeded.
Welcome to the effects of an eclipse. Bide your time and act in a few weeks when there will be less dust and less electrically charged static in the air.
Said another way, it is better to listen and react rather than set forth dictums under an eclipse. If an eclipse falls on your birthday, the year that follows certainly will be quite eventful.
One part of your life is surely due for massive change. You may experience a big change in lifestyle or in one specific part of your chart.
