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 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. This Lunar Eclipse will trigger a grand fire trine with Uranus and Saturn, with Jupiter also giving you good fortune. This will bring major changes to your personal financial resources, money held jointly with others, corporate finances, valuables, benefits and investments. There may be some extra cash through your career, a relative or parent, real estate or inheritance. Try and meet your financial obligations, clear debts, and take appropriate steps to manage your budget and expenditure. Set some objectives into place, and avoid spending based on emotional whims. Your values, and need for possessions based on security could alter significantly.
A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 9th house of the higher mind. Solar Eclipses are significant and often bring powerful changes into your life and will cover a period of six months. You may revisit your urge for travel and set sail to an unknown destination. Nebulous Neptune in your 9th house could awaken a spiritual quest and a period of growth, or you could totally come unstuck with unrealistic expectations and self-delusion. You will have other issues to contend with as Mighty Mars clashes with unpredictable Uranus opposing benefic Jupiter. This will impact your desire for change, your public standing, career and long-term plans, home and family. Not to mention relationship and partnership disagreements just prior to this Solar Eclipse. Crabs will value this time for advancing studies, being involved with the justice system, writing, and delving into metaphysics and the religious realms.
A Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th occurs in your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. This Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse will direct attention to your financial achievements in the last six months. It will bring good fortune, a chance to work through challenges, especially with Mars in your 2nd house causing disruptions with finances. You’ll need to review joint resources, property with others, real estate, investments, taxes and other people’s money. Examine joint business partnership ventures, and finalise debts and settlements. Some may be faced with arguments over inheritances, partnership discrepancies and benefits due. Your value system may change, as may what makes you feel secure and gives you comfort through possessions. Deeper sensual emotions will emerge within close relationships, together with your interest in psychic experiences, mysteries and life after death.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. This Total Solar Eclipse will set you in a new direction, working hard and diligently to increase your money earning capacity. Mars, however, is in your 2nd house giving more enthusiasm but at the same time boosting the urge to spend impulsively. You might be faced with unexpected bills or repairs to contend with, or unexpected changes in your career and professional life. Meanwhile, Mercury is in a retrograde phase slipping back into Leo for a short spell before going direct on September 5th. You may need to finalise negotiations. Fine-tune your spending capacity, which will mean changing your budget, and keeping spending down to a minimum on a needs only basis in the short-term.
