The Eclipses in 2016

Solar Eclipse at 18° Pisces March 9th 2016

The concentration of gentle Piscean energy now can be expressed in aimlessness and indolence. This can be very pleasant if you don't have anything pressing to accomplish but as it is happening on a weekday, I'm sure you have many commitments! The Eclipse links to Jupiter and dare I say, can encourage an element of over confidence. It's great to feel that you know what you are doing but don't let your ego get out of control! This Eclipse also connects to Uranus and this could lead to the temptation to rebel for the sake of it. You may just want to play Devil's Advocate but you could be best holding back or you might learn a sharp lesson. Endings and separations are symbolized by this Eclipse and it is an opportunity to develop self awareness while embracing the importance of Universal Love.

Lunar Eclipse, 3° Libra, March 23

The accompanying Lunar Eclipse in Libra provides opportunities to build bridges. However you will find that your thinking is strongly influenced by your feelings. Try and strike a balance as much as possible. Bear in mind that willingness to compromise is essential and can do much to smooth over potentially tricky situations. Any attempt to see other people's point of view will be of great benefit to you in the long run. This is an Eclipse that could be physically stimulating so if you are feeling a little under par do something that you enjoy that also gets your juices flowing!

Solar Eclipse, 9° Virgo, September 1

This Eclipse in Virgo puts the emphasis on discrimination and attention to detail. This is especially important when it comes to health and your day-to-day working environment. You might want to start taking in something healthy and home-made rather than microwaving a quick snack at lunchtime. However the primary message of this Eclipse is about facing up to reality. This can mean that you finally understand why certain things have happened in the way they have happened. Or you may see through the games and power plays of a certain person and understand who they really are and not who they pretend to be. Also if something has been bugging you for a while, there may be a chance to get to the truth of the matter. This is not a time to bury your head in the sand and neither is it a time to dwell what you perceive are your personal failings. Cutting through illusion can also help you to recognize and own your amazing qualities and use them to your best advantage.

Lunar Eclipse 24° Pisces, September 16th

This is the second Eclipse in Pisces this year but this one could have a more jarring effect on your emotions. There could be a sense of frustration as you try to make your feelings understood and this could lead to an emotional outburst or a period of sulking! Now bear in mind this is the general atmosphere so this could apply directly to you, someone you love or you might simply observe it in a work colleague or neighbor. The way to handle this erratic energy is to hang on the Virgo qualities of separating what is important from what may be a passing phase, and the Piscean values of love, compassion and empathy.
