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 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 Annular Solar Eclipse in Pisces on February 26th will be in your 7th house of significant commitments. This significant Solar Eclipse will revolve around events from September 2016. It’s a harbinger of major changes, covering a six month phase. It will bring to your awareness the need to resist extravagance and impulsive money speculations, which can result in losses. It also affects relationships, business partnerships, agreements, legal contracts and lawsuits with open enemies. Nebulous Neptune will add some confusion over litigation and partnership agreements. Be open to changes, as there’s quite a potential for dramas, endings and sensitive feelings getting in the way of making amicable agreements. Discuss your needs with your partner, and seek to balance one another’s needs and individuality. Mend apparent rifts, and take your existing relationships on 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 6th house of work and health. You will be working hard to improve your personal income, and could very well succeed. It’s a topsy-turvy situation where you could lose money through speculations, so pay greater attention to detail at this time, as Mercury is set to go retrograde on August 13th. Your plans may not come to fruition till after September 20th. Inner frustrations will arise. Resentment, anger and emotional dramas will be difficult to restrain. Set about rebuilding your physical energy. You’ll be pretty much involved with work behind the scenes and job changes could be imminent, so keep clear of office gossip and secrets being revealed. Promote good public relations; improve work relationships and your ability to be of service to others. Health issues could arise, so stay mentally focussed on being positive. Regroup your thoughts.
A New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st affects your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and subconscious motivations. It will be a time of circumspection, rebuilding your emotional and physical energy. However, work is needed on the domestic scene, pushing you to spend more time sorting through family business matters. Not only that, but you will work towards increasing your personal income. Review your values and possessions. As the Sun enters your sign on August 22nd you’ll be equipped to take better control of your personal needs and bring about changes, especially those who were born at the end of Virgo. It will also be a spiritual time. An urge for independence, thoughts of travel and foreign destinations are in the air. 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.
