Eclipses can instigate a major turning point in your life, and should never be ignored. They have a long-lasting period of some six months, with a much stronger effect than a regular lunation. Depending on your natal chart, however, the effects of an eclipse 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 4th house of home and family.
This Lunar Eclipse brings a grand trine in Fire Signs. It will be influential in bringing changes to your domestic scene, and your relationship with family members and relatives. Benefits and opportunities will emerge, either to change your residence and take on a grander home, or to renovate or extend your existing home. There’s a chance of moving due to work requirements, or alternatively working from home. Family business agreements will come under the magnifying glass, along with real estate, property, work and health. You will need to balance your career with family life, look at your long-term goals, and consider financial security.
A New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes.
This Solar Eclipse will have strong effect and will cover a period of six months. It revisits events back in September last year surrounding your friendships, love relationships, partner’s children, associations, groups and organisations. If you have not fulfilled your dreams and goals, now is the time to reconsider and build toward your future ambitions. Circumstances may lead you onto a new learning path, making new acquaintances, and re-evaluating your values and ideals. Some may begin a new love relationship and make a commitment later in the year. Others could find themselves gob-smacked as different circumstances unfold giving you a different course to follow. Endings are never easy, and this is in the frame but could prove beneficial in the long term.
A Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7th occurs in your 10th house of career and ambitions.
This partial Lunar Eclipse is going to have a bearing on your success, recognition, career path and long-term plans. It has the potential to set you on a different course, finalising your current career and spiralling you off to do something else. Things could happen out of the blue, or opportunities could present themselves for you to take up a position of leadership and importance. You may receive a promotion, a raise, and be placed in the limelight. You’ll also need to consider how events could impact on your lifestyle, family relationships, the home and balance your professional life with that of the family.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 4th house of home and family.
Leading up to this Solar Eclipse, there is the potential for upsets and frustrations with work, health, travel and communications. Mercury will be retrograde, upsetting plans with delays on the domestic scene. Meanwhile action-orientated Mars is likely to create upsets, but will at least give you the motivation to spruce up the appearance of your home, garden, and do a well-needed clean-up. Delightful Venus enters the scene on August 26th, turning your attention to beautifying the home with renovation ideas. This will be a favourable time to smooth over any misunderstandings, gain harmony with family members, and negotiate terms with family agreements. Changes to your home structure are possible from August 24th to the 29th. Also in the frame are real estate dealings, property rentals and working on projects behind the scenes.
