ECLIPSES & THE MARRIAGE OF THE SUN AND MOON
There is nothing quite as dramatic as the darkening of the Sun at an Eclipse, which explains why they were always considered to be evil omens. Total eclipses that are visible from earth are big news but these are quite rare. In reality however, there are two and sometimes three sets of Eclipses every year. "Eclipse" simply describes the blocking out or concealment of one heavenly body by another, most often, the Sun and the Moon. There are two kinds of eclipses, the "Solar" eclipse at the New Moon when the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun and the "Lunar' eclipse at the Full Moon when it is the earth that stands between the Sun and the Moon. During the eclipse period the Lunar eclipse can either follow or precede the Solar eclipse .
What Do They Mean for Us?
I have noticed that Eclipses seem to work most noticeably as catalysts so don't expect a mind-blowing experience on the day of the next eclipse. But it is fascinating how a major turning point or change of attitude or emphasis can often be traced back to a chance meeting or random event close to an Eclipse that seemed insignificant at the time.
An Eclipse in your sign will be extremely powerful and the closer the Eclipse falls to your Sun or another planet in your chart, the more potent and extreme the effect is going to be. Of course, over a lifetime there won't be that many Eclipses that link precisely to one of your personal planets (by personal I mean the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars). But every eclipse has life changing potential regardless of its sign and your own star sign. And remember we also have to factor in any aspects the Eclipse is making to other heavenly bodies. I will be give more detailed information on next year's eclipses as we get closer to these celestial events.
