Eclipses can instigate a major turning point in your life, and are best not to be ignored. They have a long-lasting period of 6th 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 6th house of work and health. This is a good time to examine what does or does not motivate you to work. Do you take pride in carrying out tasks and responsibilities with efficiency? Does whether you work for yourself, or for someone else, make a difference to your attitude? Your personal status with workmates and subordinates may be sabotaged by the machinations of secret enemies, or covert opposition.
A tendency to be ruled by stubborn pride, especially at work, should be controlled. The consciousness of your vitality brings an increased awareness of proper diet and physical fitness. It will see you working behind the scenes, uncovering and researching money matters. Unexpected benefits may arrive, but at the same time you will have secret concerns, doubts and anxiety through family matters, health, and work dilemmas. There may be private concerns over a partner’s health, those in hospital or your own well being. Nervous tension could arise, especially if you overload yourself with too much mental activity.
A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 1st house of personality and self-image. This eclipse is conjunct the fortunate Fixed Star, Skat a star of Saturn and Jupiter. Skat brings good fortune, awakening personal charm and lasting happiness. It stimulates psychic interests, sensitivity, occult interests, and encourages many friends. Success should be there for you, even if it feels like a grand achievement, though a lack of success will feel like a blow. You take everything personally and are more aggressive in the expression of your creativity and imagination. Try to avoid indulging in self-centeredness, stubborn pride, or difficulties with supervisors or authority figures.
Today encourages the beginning of a new venture that you initiate for yourself, or one in which you play a prominent part. Spiritual matters, fantasies and ideals are at work. You may, for instance, visit those who are sick or confined or volunteer assistance to charitable causes. Be careful in whatever you do however. You are conveniently inclined to lose sight of reality (who… you..?) or it may be that others purposefully (or mistakenly) hide the truth from you. Mend apparent rifts, and take your existing relationships onto a new scale, deepening commitments. Between February 25th and March 3rd, arguments will arise over finances. Ensure that the information, facts and negotiations that take place are fully understood on all sides.
A Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th occurs in your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and subconscious motivations. It will see you working behind the scenes, uncovering and researching money matters. Unexpected benefits may arrive from a partner, investments, a relative or real estate. Restrictions and responsibility are expected to lift, giving you more freedom. At the same time you will have secret concerns, doubts and anxiety through family matters, health, and work dilemmas. You’ll tend to be critical when it comes to work, efficiency and routine. There may be private concerns over a partner’s health, those in hospital or your own well being. Nervous tension could arise, especially if you overload yourself with too much mental activity.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 6th house of work and health. You seek the unusual or non-traditional, especially in financial affairs. Trying a different or unique approach to things works to your advantage, in fact, might succeed better than you ever dreamed possible. However, your plan or idea has to have a solid foundation. Participation in group efforts, organizational or club meetings, fund-raising, and political activities is favoured at this time. As the Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd you’ll be equipped to take better control of your close relationships and partnerships, and bring about changes. Do others see you as strong, independent and forceful? Do you dominate your partner, or is it the other way round? Does the partnership help, or impede your personal growth? Ego seems to be a big factor as you become more assertive in legal matters, contracts and negotiations. Expressing undue stubbornness or antagonism, however, makes it difficult to resolve conflicts, or reach compromises. This Solar Eclipse could stir up emotions from the past, so avoid bitterness and blaming others for your predicament. Being infuriated won’t help in alleviating your inner source of irritability. Look at ways of reducing anxiety through meditation, charity work, helping those in hospital, the elderly or those in need of care.
