Core material about the timeline of Eclipse effects can be found in the article, The Solar Eclipse - What It Means and Its Effect On Our Life, as well as many other elements of what we can expect from these recurring celestial events. Links to recent eclipses are at the bottom of this article.
Also, here's another important article explaining even more about what effects we can expect to result from Lunar and Solar Eclipses. There is a lot of fear and trepidation connected to Eclipses, an unfortunate leftover from previous centuries when Eclipses were believed to augur the fall of empires, dynasties, and powerful people anywhere the Eclipse shadow fell. While Eclipses do tend to shut down some elements in the area of life house in which they fall, this is not necessarily a bad thing, since we must bring some things to an end if we are to embrace newer, better ways of doing our Being.
While the future effects of an Eclipse may be powerful, in that they last over a long period, they are not necessarily bad. No Astrological event need be "bad," or have "evil" effects, regardless of whether we're using Vedic, Chinese, Western, or any other approach to defining "All-That-Is" within a precise system of space-time factors. Though a circumstance may seem to have "bad" omens for the future, we can always transcend any negativity and turn the future to beneficent possibilities.
No matter where an Eclipse falls, we can turn it to good. Here it is important to remember Astrology is NOT a "predictive" art, in the usual way this is understood.
The craft is less deterministic than most believe, including we professional Astrologers who seem to be able to "hit the mark" regarding future manifestations. Pattern is everything, and time is a continuity. By knowing the past and present, we can often extrapolate the future. But we can never know how a being will respond to any given life challenge, whether pleasant or painful. Each has their ability to respond as they choose in the moment.
Click through the link in bio for your horoscopes! The December solar eclipse was conjunct Jupiter so is very fortunate. During the eclipse season , we had the opportunity to activate the potential of five of these events three solar eclipses and two lunar , which will take place in January, July and December. Daily Horoscopes. We'll have to wait until the morning of May 26, , when the central and western United States will be treated to a total lunar eclipse, although totality will be relatively short, lasting less than 18 minutes.
This directly related to the concept that each planet has a duality of function. It is up to us to determine whether the Moon, Sun, Mercury or any other planet involved in eclipses, "bad" aspects, configurations and other phenomena manifests productively or non-productively. To remind you, a square can be more productive than a trine, and an opposition can produce awareness. Polarization is only a problem on the ego level.
Seen from a higher angle, oppositions are necessary for us to acquire objectivity and the ability to encompass duality within a higher view. By all means, check out the entire article, since I explained how past eclipses affected my chart, and gave examples of the good that can come after an eclipse removes old patterns. This Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Libra-Aries over time will show us how to deal with learning when to show Higher Love and when to show Spiritual Will, when to go to the heart and when to go to the mind. Due to the continued influence of planets in Scorpio, this will bring a greater awareness around recent and current losses, and show us the power of holding the void.
Whatever is shut down by this Lunar Eclipse creates a space for a new power, a new magnetism, a new sense of purpose, a new way of substantiating and confirming a greater duty or set of responsibilities that will be clearly recognizable this Winter and next Spring.
This Eclipse is balancing, activating, and yet also stabilizing and purifying. All Eclipses radically transform areas affected by the planetary positions, so look to where you have 26 Aries and 26 Libra to see what will be shut down. Those life areas will yield a new way of looking at relationships, and how spontaneous we can be or not. This will help us all to eliminate what we need to while opening to new ideals in interacting with others. In this Penumbral Lunar Eclipse at 26 Aries, we see the most important factors are Moon tredecile Pluto with Sun quintile Pluto, the opposition-sextile-trine I just mentioned, the Grand Irrationality set into motion by Mercury, and numerous quintiles, biquintiles, and tredeciles promising unique and specialized conditions and gifts.
There are almost no frictional aspects, showing this will be a very productive, unique, and overall harmonious Eclipse period. Because the Grand Irrationality is active, we will all have major critical decisions in house areas involving Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces.
Expect important decisions and changes in life areas where you have these signs on the cusp or planets in these signs. Though was no slouch in terms of Eclipse effects, was a rare year that offered us 6 Eclipses in one year, 4 Solar and 2 Lunar. We had the first Partial Solar Eclipse in January, we had the second one June , the third one on July 1, and a final one November ! While the Lunar Eclipses are no longer in force, the 4 Solar Eclipses of will affect us for a long time to come, so take a look at the numerous January, June, July, and November Eclipse articles in the archives.
Some links are at the bottom of this page. The Solar Eclipses of January and June brought blessings upon us since they happened. We've simply been challenged to let go of old life patterns that no longer serve the emergent Archetypes we've been living the past two years. Due to such things as the Grand Irrationality and the various Cardinal T-squares and Crosses set up by Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn, we're all going through major changes that will affect our lives for many years.
It may have been a wild ride, but power and new potentials have resulted from our choices. Since the past is prologue to the future, those who prepared, learned, and allowed themselves to be moved into new ways of relating to others in have found in an activation of a concrete higher power or value they can trust. Those who have not shown kindness and understanding at critical junctures in the past three years have reaped consequences. Our ability to become an elegant and balanced Spiritual Warrior has been put to the test in diverse ways, and made clear the consequences for seeking what we have sought.
In we had two Solar Eclipses. We also had two Lunar Eclipses. That Eclipse showed effects through mid-March Though there are always endings associated with any Eclipse, these open the space we need to align with Spirit in natural and productive ways. Take a new look to see what really matters and what you do and do not want to bring with you into the new world you're already living.
We've all blasted off into new realms in the past couple of years, and now are moving into a time of stabilizing our long term plans. This Eclipse continues to help us get clear about what we no longer need or want, and we can now let go of many things that have pushed and pulled us in the past.

Although an astrology novice, I have been reading your writings for about six years I guess. Although you state that no eclipse is bad in itself, and there is nothing to fear, and although I believe what you write, I have to disagree. I barely made it through the eclipse trifecta! By the middle of July, I lost my job, my wife, my cat, all my belongings, been blamed by my children for the divorce and they don't speak with me anymore, and became homeless, of which I still am. I haven't had a shower or slept in a bed for two years.
Don't fear an eclipse? I'm petrified! Just the name gives me the heebie jeebies, lol. Believe me, I'm grateful though, as one thing I learned in life many years ago, things can always get worse. Finding work at 58 in this economy that pays the money I used to make is next to impossible. In the grand scheme of things, I have got it pretty easy, as there are always others with issues that would make my problems look like a walk in the park. But then you say that we will feel the effects of the eclipse extravaganza for a few more years to come! I trust in your expertise, but for the love of God, some good news would be nice once in a while.
It seems as though that astrology is a lot like the nightly news. All bad! I rarely read any positive effects of all that is going in this world called atrology.
But, as not a quitter, I'm holding on to hear something good. Funny, I always said that the human being could withstand a great deal, it's amazing, but only if they are thrown a bone once in a while. A little good goes a long way. Here's hoping!! Posted by: Norm October 14, at PM. Hi Norm - Even though some Eclipses in the past symbolized events that took away everything I ever held dear or real, I got to fill the void with new life material. Endings are tough, but life is about endings. Nothing ends that continues to be real for us. Eclipses only remove what we can no longer hang on to.
And the Summer Eclipse has already run its race. More recent ones are now in play. To note, this one will be excellent due to a plethora of great aspects. You should have more than one bone thrown your way over the next few months that should prove satisfying. And if the old skills don't land you a job, then I suppose it's time to cultivate some new ones that will take care of your wallet and heart as they develop.
This is a time to let go of some old ideas so we can regenerate appropriately. Posted by: Robert October 14, at PM. This solar eclipse is happening within 3 degrees of both my Sun and Ascendant, but I welcome it. I dreamed last night that I died, and felt my soul flee away This dream could be a fore runner for this eclipse - and I still don't fear it.
From where you are now, you can transform your very soul, please believe me. Check where you have those planets in your map to see exactly in which aspect it will affect you the most. This eclipse empathizes work and health. Sagittarius people love their freedom so it is a perfect time to plan yourself to travel, be with friends, do outdoors activities and things that make you feel alive. Therefore, because the Moon is passing through Capricorn it means that it is a moment to try to stay focused and emotional balanced.
Capricorn tends to be more impulsive, strict and serious while Cancer is a lot more relaxed and sensible while dealing with all the changes and news that comes with the eclipse. Meditation is the key.

As already mentioned, in there will be five eclipses three solar and two lunar , during the months of January, July and December. These astrological events will take place under the influence of Capricorn , Leo and Cancer. The first eclipse of will have the energy of the sign of the Goat. We talk about defining the objectives to be developed this year, and how to channel efforts make your actions visible.
Additionally, it will touch on the relationship with authority figures, and how you project yourself in that position.
