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 1st house of personality. This will be your personal Full Moon. I have examined this earlier in the forecast.
A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. This Solar Eclipse can bring on major changes and cover a period of six months. Just what you wanted to know! Nebulous Neptune is in your sector of finances, adding confusion and loss to the way money is handled. There’s a chance of being deluded, and making risky business deals. Start establishing a new way of securing money received through other sources, such as joint income, investments, superannuation, taxes, benefits and inheritances.
Circumstances may pulsate you into being more realistic about your debts and financial obligations. You will be extremely sensitive to people and conditions around you, including intimate relationships. You may be challenged over your belief systems, religious and political views, thanks to fearless Mars clashing with unpredictable Uranus opposing the Lord of Fortune, mighty Jupiter. Your desire for freedom of speech could land you in hot water, particularly if you are dealing with the law, different cultures or travelling overseas. Your view may not be the same as someone else’s, which can lead to arguments and impulsive actions.
A Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th awakens your 7th house of significant commitments. This final Lunar Eclipse of the year will review a culmination of events from back in February and how your personal and emotional needs have influenced your relationships. This will also affect partnerships, marriage, alliances, agreements, litigation, and open enemies. With Mercury about to go retrograde on August 13th, make sure you understand the finer points in documents, finance commitments, and negotiations. Warlord Mars occupies your 1st house, giving you extra physical and emotional energy, so beware of emotional flare-ups. Verbal confrontations over money, ego differences and dramas are all in the frame. Benevolent Jupiter however will rule by giving you some scope with legal battles, good news, and future commitments.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 1st house of personality. This will be your 2nd powerful personal New Moon, discussed earlier in the article.
