Eclipses can instigate a major turning point in your life, and are best not to be ignored. They have a long-lasting period of 6 months and have a much stronger effect than a regular lunation. Depending on your natal chart, the effects of course can vary due to planetary degrees and aspects. Here are the major eclipses for 2017.
A Full Moon and Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Leo on February 11th will influence your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation. This powerful Lunar Eclipse will mark the culmination of events from back in August 2016. It will highlight relationships, partnerships, and romantic attractions. It’s an important time to re-evaluate your relationship with others, your creative urges, and projects that you may have had underway. Legal issues or divorce settlements may come to your attention, or you will rejoice with a relationship commitment, business partnership and possible marriage. It is also a significant time of parting company with friends, current partners and people exiting your life giving you greater opportunities in the future. It’s time to fulfil the need for something innovative. Why not explore areas of music, writing, publications and the arts?
A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations. This Solar Eclipse will have a twofold affect and will cover a period of six months. Issues that have lain dormant may resurface. February 25th to March 1st will also have an adverse effect, giving you additional woes and concerns. Conditions and arguments surrounding your career and relationships could prove disastrous if you don’t control the urge to act in a rational manner. Some Rams may be faced with a separation, and taking a totally different course with personal plans.
This may cause you to slip away and spend some time on your own in contemplation, recharging emotional batteries, and overcoming sub-conscious fears. Show understanding and compassion for those less fortunate, without getting caught up with emotional self-pity and being a martyr. Health issues are likely to arise, whether caring for a partner or another person, being in hospital, or dealing with institutions and secret societies. There’s a potential for your intuition and psychic perception to increase, together with interests in esoteric and spiritual matters.
A Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th occurs in your 11th house of friends and groups. Opportunities will unveil themselves through the people you meet, friends, love relationships and attractions. There’ll be benefits, and insights into building your future goals and dreams through others. Some may help you with legal issues, or you may celebrate over a new relationship. You’ll take greater interest in expanding the network of friends, groups, associations and societies which could play a part in fulfilling your goals. You’ll feel a stronger emotional pull to have fun, socialise and open up relationships with children other than your own.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation. Relationship issues will rise to a crescendo just prior to this New Moon. You’ll be looking for alternatives, excitement and something that will stimulate you. Mind you with energetic Mars in your 5th house, your sexual zest and magnetism will be at an all-time high. Chances are that you will meet someone significant between August 24th and 29th. However this is also likely to bring challenges in some way. This significant Solar Eclipse will have a strong effect on your nurturing side, sensual emotions, sensitivity and creative expression. It will also be an important time for friendships, relationships, children, music, the arts, outdoor sports, celebrations and entertainment.
