Astrology solar eclipse december 18
In truth, a solar eclipse is really a new moon on steroids and a lunar eclipse is a full moon on steroids — they have the strength of three new moons or full moons. I have a lot of tips, so be sure to read all the points I have listed below. I start with the most interesting points to consider, but keep reading — I would like you to know them all. An eclipse can bring the sale or purchase of a house, a move to a new home across the country, the acquisition or loss of a family pet, surgery, or an important health development.
It might bring a college graduation, or the eclipse may mark the start of your course of study. Eclipses sometimes bring on a divorce, a newly published book — you get the idea. Monumental events, meetings and partings, or changes within your career may also take place at an eclipse — they are dates we usually long remember.
No matter what occurs, it will become evident that the universe is intent on moving you forward. Eclipses often mark a major turning point. If nothing happens to you, it may be happening to friends and family around you, depending on the precise degrees of the planets in your chart. More about that much later. During an eclipse period, it is as though you will walk over a rickety old bridge.
As you walk across this bridge, over a very deep, rugged, treacherous ravine, you may be a little nervous. Once you make it to the other side, the bridge will collapse and you will see the pieces fall far into the deep, perhaps making you jittery. Once we go through an eclipse, we can never go back to the former situation again, for the universe wants us to make progress, not go back to good old days. That option is taken away, forever. The only way with an eclipse is forward.
The changes could happen instantly, but they also can occur over a period of months with each successive eclipse. Still, the news of those changes often comes as a shock. Solar eclipses tend to create new beginnings and bright new opportunities. Usually, they are exciting, are often very positive, and bring news out of the blue. We always need to see the kind of conversations a moon or the Sun s having with the other planets to judge if the eclipse is completely friendly or not. Your own natal chart will matter too — I cannot see your natal chart from where I sit, so after you pass the eclipse, write a note on your calendar about what happened.
Lunar eclipses are more emotional, for they bring on final endings. They often make us aware of the passage of time, and make us sentimental. A full moon lunar eclipse is almost always an emotional time. Memories and dreams come up to the surface, and sometimes we feel sentimental. Each eclipse in one family of signs will advance the discussion that the eclipse first brings up to a higher, more sophisticated level, and keep doing so, as each eclipse of that family arises until the matter is resolved.
By then, you have evolved too. As said, however, only eclipses that are mathematically significant to your natal chart will affect you — not the ones that are too far away from touching planets in your chart. Those may have only a very mild effect, or none at all. This is why you need to have your horoscope chart.
I will always tell you the degrees and precise birthdays of the signs that will be affected by the eclipses. There are other ways you might be affected, and I will cover those instances later in this chapter. I might be able to explain this idea more easily if I give you an example. You have been good to your client, working hard for him for years. When you took him on, no one else would even meet with him, but you saw talent in this person, and although he was completely unknown at the time, you built him into a superstar.
His talent plus your hard work put him on top of the industry charts. Another agent has now come in to poach your artist and has offered him an attractive contract, one you could never match. Your competitor feels that by getting this artist, he will be able to get more name artists. This artist is your main source of income, and you have always been loyal to one another. You felt you both were happy. On the day of the eclipse, you receive an email in error.
It is an email that you were not supposed to be copied on, but on that day, you received it. It reveals the secret talks your artist has been having with the other agent. Until the eclipse, you had no idea these talks have been going on behind your back. Honestly, because this is an eclipse, your efforts might be futile, as once an eclipse comes by, the results tend to be final.
Of course, you should make an attempt — but make sure you make a dramatic move. In this instance, you will have to fight fire with fire! As you see, outside events or actions of others that you did not know anything about and that were outside of your control can create forces of change on a massive scale in your own life.
As a result, you may reassess your assumptions, your business strategy, and the way you conduct business. Maybe you will feel that you had too many eggs in one basket by allowing this one artist to account for such a large part of your income. Maybe you will feel you were too trusting or did not remain competitive enough.
You probably will have to draw up a quick plan to attract other talent to your stable — eclipses often form a time of complete evaluation, for they have the power to change everything related to the area of your life that eclipse is emphasizing. It can be a big or small event that changes everything.
Indeed, often at eclipse time an important piece of information is given to you accidentally. Still, no matter how the information comes to you, it can set off a chain of events that will force you to see things in a new light. Eclipses bring events that you assumed were months or years away right up to your front door now. Suddenly your marriage plans will change in an instant — and you and your fiance may quickly marry in your own country so that you can move to England to begin your new life together. Timetables change in a blink of an eye. There is always a feeling of life moving very rapidly — it is life on fast-forward, or great acceleration.
Sometimes an event will make us sentimental at eclipse time, as we are very cognizant of the passage of time. Eclipses are brilliant illuminators, revealing a truth about a condition that you never in a million years knew existed. Once you are given the information, the news can act as a catalyst to a major decision or action you will take.
Most often we are shocked or surprised by the information that comes to us, for the eclipse is one of the most dramatic tools the universe uses to get you to sit up, pay attention, and take action. Eclipses are always your friends, for they are there to help to protect you. Always be grateful for truth. Here is another way to think about the way eclipse work: Imagine that a puzzle piece fell out of the sky into your hands.
This new piece offers information, and when added to the overall picture of your puzzle will change the complexion of the situation and bring you a flash of insight. You will also know what you must do next. This is the experience of an eclipse! You might have been operating in the dark for much too long, putting yourself in jeopardy.
Once you know, you can make appropriate plans. Realize that there is little or no chance of getting things reversed. Eclipses demand that we forward, not backward to the way things used to be. Save your dignity and do not plead — eclipses are final. That would be your only option, but be aware that finding a permanent remedy to mend the problem is not likely. The eclipse wants you to have new experiences, so keep your eyes open for what is to come next.
While sometimes news at eclipse time will be delivered in a dramatic and obvious way, at other times, the news will come in much more subtly, as a secret or as a piece of gossip. Nevertheless it will foretell dramatic changes to come. The fact that you are hearing this near an eclipse means you must listen and investigate — do not ignore it, or by the time the next eclipse comes by in five and a half months from the date you hear this piece of information, the situation, may have grown bigger.
Sometimes you are able to head off difficulties by paying attention to the signals you pick up at eclipse time. If your birthday, for instance, falls on February 1, and the eclipse falls six months from your birthday, August 1, it is still significant, as it will be degrees away, and aimed directly at you, so to speak. Also, note if the eclipse falls on or close to your rising sign degree or any planets in the first house, as that one will be felt strongly in terms of health, too. Eclipses will sometimes point out underlying weaknesses in health that can be addressed quickly so that you can soon be feeling great again.
A solar eclipse generally points to a prominent male in your life, so often a man may leave. If you are to be affected, you may break up a relationship with a man, or see that your boss has quit and is leaving, as another example. Lunar eclipses are generally female. Your relationship may likely change quite a bit.
The usual order we use for a lunar eclipse is: mother, wife, grandmother, prominent female boss, client or business associate, or female friend. This is generally the case most of the time, but occasionally these genders will swap out, and I am not sure why! Even though eclipses coincide with new and full moons, they are much stronger than a regular new or full moon. You can think of eclipses as a new or full moon on steroids. They pack so much more energy and punch than a normal lunation of the Sun or moon. In fact, they feel like they are three new or full moons rolled into one.
Bide your time and act a few weeks after the eclipse, at a time when less static will fill the air. Said another way, it is better to listen and respond than to issue announcements and ultimatums. Hold off on beginning new ventures at eclipse time. If you need to sign a contract, try to add several days beyond the date of the eclipse to sign when your judgment will become stronger and sharper. In this case, you are responding, so it is fine to act.
Having said that, eclipses tend to get truth to the surface very fast, like a geyser of water forcefully rising to the surface. You may not keep things inside, even though you planned to do so! The first example shows an action someone else is asking you to respond to if your landlord — good, you can respond to any changes the landlord brings up , but the latter is an action you chose to take under the eclipse a talk with your sweetheart — not such a good time to do so.
The ancient astrologers always wrote that if you act under an eclipse, your plan would not work out quite the way you expected, and it will likely not be to your advantage. Of course, every eclipse is different, and some are friendly to your planets and some are not. A final word: If you are a manager or own your own business, do not hire anyone at eclipse time!
Give 10 days after the eclipse to add to your staff. One other point: if you must act at eclipse time, make it a solar, new moon eclipse, for that one will open new doors and create new opportunities. If you know an astrologer, be sure the eclipse is friendly to the natal planets in your unique chart. You may experience a big change in lifestyle or massive change in one specific part of your life. The same is true if the eclipse falls on your rising sign — the first house of your chart. Your old life may now fade into history as a new one shapes up. Let me give you an example.
Of course the closer the mathematical degrees of the eclipse match your Sun, the better and the more important the eclipse will be for you. I do have to add the disclaimer that we always have to look at all the planets involved in your chart and see how they are aspected at birth, but generally, this rule will be true. Eclipses in the same element are often friendly to each other.
The fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. For example, as soon as the Pisces-Virgo series of eclipses are done on February 26, , that series will not be back until September 17, While the family of signs will repeat sooner than that, in about seven or eight years, they will appear in different mathematical degrees than they did recently.
However if you go back 19 years and look at the series of eclipses that arrived that year, you may be astounded to see that all of them will be nearly identical in the family of sign, mathematical degree and precise date it arrived. Keep in mind that the other planets in the sky will have since changed position, so no year is ever a carbon copy of any other year. Still, by looking back 19 years, you may be able to come up with a theme that will teach you something. The most dramatic example I can give you is one that affected me. My daughter, Diana, was to go to college for the first time on an eclipse that fell August It was the day her father was driving her to Boston College, and I was a little worried because there was an eclipse that day.
I was hoping all would go well, that the drive there would be uneventful, and that Diana would like her dorm room. I thought, well, I can look back 19 years. How could the previous eclipse in the same sign and degree of 19 years ago possibly affect her, or me? I did the math and realized, much to my shock, that 19 years earlier, to the precise day, I had found out I was pregnant with her. The first eclipse, 19 years earlier, taught me to be a mother.
I was now learning to be a mother again in a different way, by letting my little bird fly away independently. As I realized this, I got goose bumps all over. The universe runs on time and is a source of vast wisdom. I will never forget the moment I realized this! As said, sometimes it is helpful to look back to those years to see what themes e emerged at that time so that you can predict what might come up for you now. Just take 19 years from the present and look up to see what happened at eclipse time from the table below.
So for example, your birthday falls on February An eclipse is coming February 26, , or you were born on August 26, exactly six months away. Watch January 26 one month earlier , plus or minus five days, and one month later, March 26, plus or minus five days. Let me give you a visual idea of what I mean. Later, when Mars, the warrior planet, takes the same route as the eclipse did and reaches that scab, at the same mathematical degree and sign as the eclipse, something may happen. Being the rough and tumble guy that Mars is known to be, he will break that scab open and the news of the eclipse would be released.
This may also happen if Mars is in the opposite sign of the eclipse but same degree. Saturn, being a karmic planet, can do the same if he is close enough and is due to travel over the same path, same sign, and same degree. I thought you might like to know how I calculate things for you!
Your judgment may be impaired, or pieces of information may be missing, so bargain for more time to think about your decision or next action. You may want to wait seven days before deciding, but that is not always possible.
Solar Eclipse Meaning
If someone comes to you with a proposal, consider it carefully. If after looking at it from all sides you like it, then proceed, but try to beg for just a little extra time. Keep your schedule light because urgent things often come up at eclipse time that will need your immediate attention. You may see your life change as a result. Get expert help if necessary, or hire helpers in your own personal life if you need more hands on deck. An eclipse may bring news suddenly, but it takes weeks to understand its real meaning. If you should suffer under an eclipse, consider that perhaps that situation is being swept away so that the universe can provide you with something better.
Be patient and keep an open mind. In the fluid situation it creates you can find ways to benefit. Here is one example. Mary has worked at the same company 15 years and does her job well. Her raises have been so little as to be almost non-existent, but she was so loyal to her employer she would never think of leaving. Now comes the eclipse and she is downsized. Mary is terribly upset, worried about how she will pay her rent, and if you asked Mary, she would say that the effect of the eclipse on her has been catastrophic. A Lunar Eclipse in the ninth house , your personal beliefs may be tested.
Your hunger for adventure or learning may come into focus. You want to take a leap of faith now. There may be an important beginning or culmination in education. If you are in business, a writer, or the like, you might reach a wider audience. A Lunar Eclipse in the tenth house , you may need to review and change your career goals. Career matters come to a head, but as the seventh house from the fourth, so might a personal, domestic, family, or house and home matter. A Lunar Eclipse in the eleventh house , friendships may be tested, or your relationship to groups or organizations.
There can be a major event involving a child or a romantic partner, or a culmination of a creative project can occur at this time. A Lunar Eclipse in the twelfth house , you may recognize an overwhelming need for rest and spiritual renewal. There can be exposure of a private or even clandestine matter in some cases.
Secrets can emerge at this time, or there can be a desire to do something private, secret, or risky. A work project can come to fruition. See also my Daily Horoscopes for July 16, , for sign-by-sign interpretations of this eclipse. Its effects can be felt up to six months after the actual date of the eclipse. This eclipse might challenge these matters and present opportunities for new beginnings. Flaws in an important system in our lives are revealed around the time of the eclipse, prompting us to redo or to start fresh. We may find ourselves completely re-working this area of life.
Something ends in order for something else to start anew. We may be called to give up something in order to move forward into a new chapter in our lives. We need to pay attention to our instincts, our deepest needs, and our feelings; and to recognize the importance of our family and our personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety we derive from them.
We are called upon to get in touch with our vulnerability and our needs for intimacy, as well as opening ourselves up to accepting support from others; to offer and show support for others, without a hidden agenda; and we might begin a new project that involves improving the home itself, or improving domestic life in general. With this potent Cancer energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle.
For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to these matters. We are reminded of our support system and our need for a sense of safety and security. If we focus too much on achieving our career objectives at the expense of building a solid sense of personal satisfaction, we eventually become ineffective both personally and professionally.
We may find ourselves completely re-working the areas of life ruled by Cancer in our charts. Nagging problems from the past six months need to be dealt with and put behind us. An eclipse occurs close to the nodal axis, and this eclipse is closer to the North Node of the Moon. Still, there is an element of the unknown involved that can worry some. Those of us with planets and points strongly stimulated by this eclipse can feel especially drained and tired, both physically and emotionally.
There is a need to let go, forgive, cleanse, and release. Eclipses can seem to wipe us out before we begin fresh. Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Cancer in our charts are likely to occur over the course of the next six months. This eclipse is part of a set of eclipses falling along the Cancer-Capricorn axis. See dates below. Not everyone will feel the effects of the eclipse with the same intensity. Those whose personal planets are activated by the degree of the eclipse will feel its effects on a personal level the most.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 6 to 16 degrees of the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most significantly. The chart of this eclipse is above. The first eclipse in this set happened in July and was a partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Events last summer and fall may have started the ball rolling.
Solar eclipses occurred at approximately the same degree as this July eclipse on June 30, , July 1, , and July 1, It might help to think back to these periods, if applicable, and consider the themes that surrounded your life back then in order to get a better understanding of what the current eclipse series might mean for you. The last time we had a set of Cancer-Capricorn eclipses was July to July , and this can also give clues as to life departments and themes may emerge through this set of Cancer-Capricorn eclipses.
If this eclipse stimulates your 1st-7th house axis , you are called upon to strike a balance between relationship and self. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore over the next year. You may, for example, receive a cosmic push towards expressing yourself more creatively especially if degrees Cancer is in the first house and experience an increased drive to take charge of your life. Basically, you will be learning to stand on your own two feet! This sequence of eclipses will alert you to the need to interact with others—either the public or through a close partnership especially if degrees Cancer is in the seventh house.
For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For most, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into focus. This eclipse should give you a push towards a stronger identity or sense of purposefulness through a close partnership.
If this eclipse stimulates your 2nd-8th house axis , you will be called upon to strike a balance between your own needs for security and comfort and the same needs of other people, likely those of a significant other. If degrees Cancer is in the second house, personal finances will come into strong focus. How well have you taken care of your finances? More importantly, have you taken charge of your personal sense of security? If degrees Cancer is in the eighth house, issues of sexuality and spirituality may be a stronger focus. In either case, issues of shared resources, sexuality, and possessions are featured.
If degrees Cancer is in the second house, take charge of your life by taking the necessary steps to make yourself feel good and secure. You are called upon to make a stand and to tend to your comfort levels.
Eclipses – Jo Tracey Astrology
If you do so, the positive effects will ricochet back into your intimate life. Get in touch with what feels most comfortable for you, and the intimacy level in your relationship will step up a notch. If degrees Cancer is in the eighth house, you are learning about the comfort levels of others. Essentially, you are learning to share and to surrender yourself in a balanced manner! If the 3rd-9th house axis is stimulated by this eclipse, issues surrounding learning and sharing knowledge will come to the fore.
If degrees Cancer is in the ninth house, you will be learning to expand your horizons, either through contact with people from an entirely different background than yours, travel, or higher learning. Your personal philosophy will be changing, and this eclipse gives you a push towards adopting beliefs that truly work for you in the real world.
If the 4thth house axis is stimulated by this eclipse, issues surrounding public and private lives, as well as attention to career and to family, are stimulated. The fourth house rules our instinctual needs, the domestic scene, our needs for security, and our focus on family and home life as well as relationships with family. The tenth house rules our needs for status, our career and reputation, our worldly ambitions, structure, and our drive for success. Striking a balance between these issues is the focus of this sequence of eclipses.
This eclipse is the first cosmic push for you to take charge of your private life. If degrees Cancer is in the tenth house, you are called upon to pay more attention to your career and public life, and to take charge of this important part of your life. Either way, this can play out in a number of ways. Some may have to make some critical decisions due to situations in the life that force them to make choices between career and family goals. Some people are promoted or their career takes a new direction especially if an eclipse occurs close to the Midheaven.
If this eclipse stimulates your 5thth house axis , social activity is the focus. The need to be appreciated by others, and the need for togetherness with others, comes into play. A love affair may begin or end under this influence. New contacts with others may also occur. If degrees Cancer is in the fifth, you will learn to let go of a fear of taking risks, and to develop the courage to strike out on your own individual and creative path without fear. You are called upon to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect, which detaches you from your feelings.
This series of eclipses is about learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence. If degrees Cancer is in the eleventh, you will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness. You are called upon to learn about the value of the team.
You may need to give freedom to your romantic partner instead of expecting him or her to follow a script of your own making. You learn the value of brotherly love and the benefits of a sense of belonging to a community. Events are such that you move towards a more objective approach to your life and you cultivate true friendships. If degrees Cancer is in the sixth house, you are called upon to deal with the details and practicalities of everyday life, to become more organized, and to take charge of your routines.
Circumstances are such that you need to develop some healthy habits, routines, and schedules. Believing in a grand plan is fine, but practical concerns need to be dealt with as well. Recognizing your personal limitations in terms of just how much you can give to others and just how much compassion and understanding you can show is essential now.
If degrees Cancer is in the twelfth house, over the next year you are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. When this axis is stimulated, issues of guilt, worry, and anxiety become paramount. With the Leo-Aquarius axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives.
The Leo-Aquarius polarity deals with the balance between all that is personal Leo and all that is impersonal Aquarius. The energy of Leo is creative self-expression and the boost to the individual ego that we receive through pleasure and romance, while Aquarius rules the group, more impersonal friendships, and objectivity. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between romance and friendship, and between expressing ourselves in personal and impersonal ways. The Leo Moon is proud and intensely individual—not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Sun, while individualistic as well, values independence and the team.
The Full Moon illuminates this conflict. Some sort of crisis which can be a crisis of consciousness or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts. The Leo Moon is bold, creative, expressive, and loving, but can also be melodramatic and egoistic. Others will be moved towards romantic declarations or revelations. This eclipse occurs around the time of a fabulous Venus-Jupiter alignment, and can point to a sweet release of sorts. With the Leo-Aquarius axis involved, our larger work should be on reaching a good balance between focus on personal enjoyment and our need for community and altruism.
There can be a heightened awareness of flaws in our romantic relationships, relationships with children, and creative activities. There can be final word or final decisions now. It can be viewed as the final cosmic push regarding the themes it is stimulating. On January 21, , a Lunar Eclipse fell in Leo at a similar degree as the one occurring this year. In the Saturn-ruled sign of Capricorn, public life, career, reputation, achievement, and accountability are in sharp focus.
This eclipse is about new beginnings regarding all of these matters. This is a time for setting practical, attainable goals; working on developing maturity and common sense in the personality; considering the future, and preparing for it; focusing on concrete ways of developing self- discipline and self-mastery; finding ways to give satisfying form to wishes; making commitments and recognizing responsibilities; accepting that we are limited, and that, ironically, some of our limitations truly free us to explore deeper dimensions of experience by offering us a secure foundation, and nurturing our dreams in a realistic fashion.
Capricorn teaches us that recognizing our limitations actually frees us to focus on what matters, where we are, who we are, and where we want to go. With the potent Capricorn energy of the Solar Eclipse, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle.
The eclipse point itself is aligned with Saturn and Pluto, suggesting that we might need to work hard to achieve our goals, and possibly face some roadblocks along the way. Its sextile to Neptune suggests we get help from the consideration of our emotional or spiritual needs and our ideals. This suggests that we may be hesitant about making changes, preferring to cling to the past. Letting go of something that has been holding us back is likely to figure. Eclipses conjunct the South Node tend to feel a bit more challenging than those aligning the North Node, at least initially, as we are called upon to give up or release something and to move out of a familiar place or a comfort zone.
We may find ourselves completely re-working the area of life ruled by Capricorn in our charts. Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Capricorn in our charts are likely to occur over the course of the next months. Note that this is one eclipse in a series of eclipses falling in Cancer-Capricorn. Not everyone will feel the effect of the eclipse with the same intensity.
Those whose personal planets are activated by the degree of the eclipse will most feel its effects on a personal level. This phase of the Moon occurs at 15 degrees and 25 minutes of Capricorn, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 10 to 25 degrees of the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most significantly.
Solar eclipses occurred at approximately the same degree as this January eclipse on January 4, , January 4, , and January 4, It might help to think back to these periods and consider the themes that surrounded your life at that time in order to get a better understanding of what the current eclipse series might mean for you. Most recent previous eclipse sets falling along the Cancer-Capricorn axis occurred from July to July , July to June , July to December , July to June You may, for example, receive a cosmic push towards expressing yourself more creatively especially if Capricorn is in the first house and experience an increased drive to take charge of your life.
The August eclipse should give you a push towards a stronger identity or sense of purposefulness through a close partnership. If Capricorn is in the second house, personal finances will come into strong focus. If Capricorn is in the eighth house, issues of sexuality and spirituality may be a stronger focus.
If Capricorn is in the second house, take charge of your life by taking the necessary steps to make yourself feel good and secure. If Capricorn is in the eighth house, you are learning about the comfort levels of others. If Capricorn is in the ninth house, you will be learning to expand your horizons, either through contact with people from an entirely different background than yours, travel, or higher learning.
If Capricorn is in the tenth house, you are called upon to pay more attention to your career and public life, and to take charge of this important part of your life. If Capricorn is in the fifth, you will learn to let go of a fear of taking risks, and to develop the courage to strike out on your own individual and creative path without fear. If Capricorn is in the eleventh, you will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness.
If Capricorn is in the sixth house, you are called upon to deal with the details and practicalities of everyday life, to become more organized, and to take charge of your routines. If Capricorn is in the twelfth house, over the next year you are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan.
The following horoscopes outline some of the ways this Solar Eclipse may affect the zodiac signs. These horoscopes are from my daily horoscopes Astro Highlights. This Solar Eclipse brings heightened awareness and sensitivity to your standing in society and your professional goals, dear Aries, as it happens in the professional or public sector of your solar chart. There can be feelings of excitement or uneasiness, depending on how you handle change, surrounding career, reputation, and life path matters now.
There can be an initial feeling of being stuck, blocked, or uncertain of your next step. Going forward, it will be a good time for developing new business plans and goals. A sense of renewal and reinvigoration regarding your career goals is on the horizon. Changes in work, focus, life direction, bosses, authority figures, reputation, or your own authority and influence can occur now and in the coming few months. Significant shifts in how others see you can occur now.
There can be recognition for your accomplishments. You are more actively aware of the need to bring added structure or rules into your life, or you might decide you need to improve your performance and general practices so that you can better follow certain rules. This is a phase in which you are exceptionally busy with career or public responsibilities. Drama or commotion stirred now paves the way for new approaches and new beginnings. A fresh approach is encouraged. Goals for self-mastery and self-discipline should be made at this time.
This eclipse is part of a set occurring from mid to mid that encourages you to find a better work-home life balance. Your goal now is to enter new beginnings with healthy confidence. You have more impact on others than usual, so use this time in the spotlight well, and avoid hasty moves. Making nice with people in high places, teachers, bosses, and parents can figure strongly, and there can be substantial changes in your life when it comes to your own influence or authority or with authority figures in your life.
Eclipses often have an effect of wiping out our energy as the slate is cleaned, after which energy slowly rebuilds. Transits occurring at the time of the eclipse have more staying power than usual since they are tied in with the eclipse energy. A Mercury-Mars square suggests impatience can be costly, particularly with words and methods, but a Sun-Neptune sextile suggests the consideration of spiritual goals can boost your business, or that you can benefit from past work and efforts now and in the coming months.
This can bring invigorating events into your life that serve to nudge you out of your usual routine. You are making a break from the past in some manner, which will help clear the path for future growth and development. There may be opportunities to broaden your horizons through travel, education, life experience, or adventure. There can be emerging opportunities to publish or promote your work, share your ideas, and enjoy mind-expanding experiences. Meeting important people through these endeavors is possible. Transportation issues can also be in focus, with new avenues opening up for getting out and about.
