Hello Everyone – yes, I’m still here!
This latest article is about the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces – for more information read on ……
This is a Total Eclipse, which is a powerful cosmic event for the whole world to experience. It will occur mainly through the nighttime in the US and Europe and will be visible in Australasia. The full shadow will fall across Indonesia and may touch the Northernmost tip of Australia.
For countries that are shadowed in this way the full effect of the eclipse will be felt. There will likely be some political unrest across the region – particularly as the eclipse is total, thus powerful.
An Eclipse is technically a New Moon, when the Sun and Moon come together on the same day. Obviously a New Moon occurs every month – what makes a New Moon into an eclipse is that the Moon is on the Ecliptic between the Earth and the Sun. The Ecliptic is the apparent path the Sun makes on its journey around the Earth. Usually the Moon is either well below or above the Ecliptic so it doesn’t interfere with the Sun’s light heading our way.
Eclipses are generally in each Zodiac axis – in this case, Pisces/Virgo – for about 18 months and they recur about every 6 months, give or take a few days. They go backwards through the Zodiac, so will then go back into Leo/Aquarius in August 2017 for another 18 months.
Pisces/Virgo is the axis of mysticism, spirituality and service to humanity. The axis of Love in Action, Service through Loving, Giving for Love’s Sake
Your Zodiac Signs – Sun, Moon or Ascendant
So what does it mean for me? I hear you ask. Good question -please read on!
Solar Eclipses generally have a 19 year cycle, repeating the actual degree of the Sun being darkened by the Moon. Look back in your own life and see what you were doing in 1997 – not necessarily the small events, but the overall picture of development in your life and the qualities that were around that year. This particular Eclipse will pick up a square to reality check Saturn, sextile to transformational Pluto and an opposition to expansive Jupiter. The effects of this package will last for about a year on a personal level for each one of us.
There will then follow 2 weeks later, a Lunar Eclipse on 23rd March at the beginning of Aries/Libra.
The readings below can either be read from your Sun Sign – ie your birthday – or your Ascendant sign, which is calculated form your time of birth. Try also reading it from your Moon Sign, as Hindu astrologers suggest. You may even read them all together for an even broader picture of your life, because it does seem to work that way for many of my clients.
Aries : 21st March – 20th April: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 12th Solar House of hidden matters coming to light, hospital visits (not necessarily for yourself), mysticism and spirituality. The square to Saturn can indicate that your beliefs will be challenged to go through a shift, necessitating you to make changes in your attitudes towards learning, travel, foreign affairs and teaching. Career-wise you can have an opportunity through Pluto’s long term effects to transform your attitudes towards those in power around you, which in turn will likely change their attitudes towards you. Jupiter’s opposition can bring new co-workers who offer a breath of fresh air to the work place and open up your social life as well. Take a health check and maybe start some exercise or meditation programme to ensure you reap Jupiter’s benefits.
Taurus: 20th April – 20th May: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 11th Solar House of friendships, projects, ideals and humanitarian ideals. This can bring a complete reversal of some of your friendships either they leave or you do. You are likely to meet new people who share your new vision of the world around this time. You will need to be careful taking on any large loans or mortgages as Saturn is overseeing your shared finances. This could bring an unexpected or overlooked bill through your postbox. Best to go through your accounts again just in case. A long distance journey could be a transforming effect in your life – especially if it’s with someone you really care for. You may meet someone from a different culture who opens interesting values for you. Jupiter can expand your creative side bringing some joy and expansion of your inner gifts.
Gemini: 21st May – 21st June: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 10th Solar House of career and public standing. This can bring a change in your career plans that are both unexpected and stretching of your abilities. While it will mean hard work to get up to speed with what is expected of you, the outcome can be rewarding in the longer term. Saturn is sitting in your relationship sector and so can bring serious choices to made. It can also mean marriage – Saturn likes us to obey the rules. Older people are appearing in your life offering their own special wisdom and broad world view that can also open your mind to new possibilities. Pluto has a hand in your shared resources and could help you to concentrate on practical business problems – and ensure your taxes are well taken care of. Jupiter in your domestic domain can expand your living space – such as putting in a new kitchen.
Cancer: 21st June – 23rd July: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 9th Solar House of broadening your mind and exploring who you are right now. Travel plans could be disrupted so be sure to read the small print on your flight documents – have you renewed your passport, for example? Many of your plans for the future are changing direction in an interesting way. Saturn has taken up residence in the sector of everyday work/chores encouraging you to stop being available to others all the time. Just put a boundary on your caring nature and see how peoples’ attitudes change towards you – they may develop an new respect for you. Jupiter in your neighbourhood can open up new friendships and meetings – involving people from different cultures and beliefs that can expand your mind. Personal relationships can take on a very intense turn that can be transformative.
Leo: 23rd July – 23rd August: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 8th Solar House of shared resources, taxes and savings. You may have a legacy or inheritance that comes out of the blue. Partners may have sudden changes in their finances that can challenge your own financial stability. Keep your head down through this period and don’t spend too rashly. With Saturn in your sector of children and social events, you would be wise not to overspend on them too rashly as this is not the time for speculation or commercial situations. A child may come to you for a loan – over to you to make your own decision. This is a good time to take your healthcare – exercise, nourishment, meditation – into your own hands as you could feel the transformative power of Pluto smiling on you as you do. Jupiter may bring an offer of personal financial expansion from a foreign interest in you.
Virgo: 23rd August – 23rd September: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 7th Solar House of relationships and partnerships of all kinds. This can bring about huge changes in your relationship life – new love, if you are single; new clients if you work one on one with clients; changes for your partner, if you are already in a relationship. With the square from Saturn in your domestic area, it’s best to leave things as they are right now and not rock any boats. Your parents may give cause for concern so keep your eye out for them. Put your energies into your creative ventures with Pluto supporting you from your creativity sector on your chart. This has been a good year for Virgo overall as Jupiter is in your most personal, me, me sector on your chart – so lots of joyful events, good trips away, an expansive period with others noticing that you exist – which is unusual for shy Virgo.
Libra: 23rd September – 23rd October: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 6th Solar House of health, exercise, meditation, routine work and co-workers. This can ensure that you look after yourself physically and mentally – no sliding off the wagon or binge-eating over this period. You may find that your siblings or cousins make demands on you as they could be going through a hard time right now. Take care of yourself first, though. You may decide to make large changes in your domestic situation – perhaps beginning a work project from home and building an office for yourself in an unused corner somewhere – a neighbour may be helpful here. An office mate could move in with you for a while, which would tide you over until your own business is up and running. A new meditation or relaxation program could take care of any stress levels that may ensue.
Scorpio: 23rd October – 22nd November: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 5th Solar House of creativity, enjoyment, events in the lives of your children. An offspring may go through a huge life change and require love and support from you – or land on your doorstep needing a place to stay for a while. Watch how much you are spending on a new hobby or interest – it could prove more than you bargained for, says Saturn in your money sector. No matter how many invitations you get that look like fun – accept them – this is a great time for meeting new and supportive people. It could all get a little intense as Pluto is expecting some transformational meetings to occur that could be life changing. Jupiter sits in the sector associated with projects that offer a good future, friendships and an opening that can expand your existing social life bringing new languages, religions and customs.
Sagittarius: 22nd November – 22nd December: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 4th Solar House heralding forced changes in your home environment. This can be through needing more space, due to an impending addition to your family; an elderly parent moving in; a need for more personal privacy; and other events that bring a similar result. Saturn is in your own sign and will be making his own demands on your time. You will be taking on more responsibilities in your life, through your career, family and children. Although it can be exhausting at times, you will have an underlying sense of getting your life on a solid foundation. Pluto’s influence on your personal earnings can transform your financial life and bring its own rewards. Jupiter ensures that your career opens up to bring fresh opportunities that offer you new life for the foreseeable future.
Capricorn: 22nd December -20th January: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 3rd Solar House of communication, teaching, writing, siblings. It is a mental house, so the eclipse can bring a change in your ideas – some of which could be good enough to publish for the world to read. Jupiter in the sector of publication and broadcasting can support your ideas – maybe through blogging, writing, setting up an online tutoring course, or your own radio show. You choose. Pluto in your sign is ensuring that you transform your life into something closely resembling your original plan before you were born. You are a realist, ruled by Saturn, the common-sense planet – and you need to grab this opportunity with both hands. Saturn in is your mystical sector so meditation could be a good way for you to open up to the promptings of your imagination.
Aquarius: 20th January – 19th February: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 2nd Solar House of personal finances, belongings and values – knowing what’s really important to you. Interestingly, the eclipse can bring changes to all of the above. A new channel for making money could open up through some ideas you have hidden in the back of a drawer in your office, for example, waiting for the right time to show them the light of day. This can be a very productive period for you, spawning new projects and ideas. Saturn in the friendship sector of your chart can encourage you to be tough minded about not lending money to friends during this time as you may not get it back. Jupiter brings a ray of expansion into your financial life by giving you an inheritance of some kind – not necessarily money, but some investible ideas that could lead to improved finances.
Pisces: 19th February – 20th March: The Total Eclipse of 9th March falls in your 1st Solar House can bring changes in all the important areas of your life: you may move house; find a new relationship; change your career; or even relocate to a new country. Certainly Jupiter can bring new relationships with people from a different part of the world, with new cultural values and beliefs. This is the 18 month period of profound changes that started in 2015 and will continue until mid-2017. When you look back on this time, you will be amazed at where you are and who you are with. Saturn in your career sector will bring responsibilities that may seem heavy but which will teach you a lot about yourself. Pluto in your friendship area can bring an intense and deeply satisfying lifelong friendship that can transform both your lives for ever. Some friendships will end to clear the decks.
