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.

It will also influence your area of work and health, and a see a possible romantic attraction in the workplace, thanks to sensual Venus and passionate Mars in your 6th house. Be open to unexpected changes which may have a fortunate turn of events with your money situation and plans on the domestic scene. Stimulating Mars will prompt you to push yourself harder through work, upset the status quo, and potentially suffer from illnesses, accidents and surgical operations.

A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation.
