A solar or lunar eclipse is one of the most impressive natural phenomena that can be observed in the heavens. In the past, eclipses were sometimes seen as an omen for troubled times or impending disaster. A light-devouring demon or dragon was blamed for the spectacular eclipse of the sun.
Today, now that we know how solar and lunar eclipses are caused, we no longer need to fear that light is fundamentally endangered. However, during an eclipse, the Sun and the Moon, the two central lights of a horoscope, form a unique relationship. Therefore, astrologers attach great importance to the symbolic battle between light and darkness.
Solar and lunar eclipses take place every 6 months, and each one carries a specific theme. Some bring blessings and insights, others reveal omissions or errors that require correction. But all of them will show you what lies in the shadow of your own life and wants to be seen.
It’s only when an eclipse happens on your birthday or hits one of your natal planets that you feel the influence. This time corresponds to a major impact or change in your life.
The effects of eclipses stay with us for as long as six months, and they reveal main areas of focus for this half-year period. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. Therefore, major decision-making is best avoided during an eclipse period.
Here you’ll find more information about eclipses of the Sun and Moon:
A solar eclipse occurs when The Moon lies between the Sun and Earth, casting its shadow on our planet. This only happens with a New Moon. Solar eclipses work somewhat differently than lunar eclipses, and emphasize beginnings. (Something may also be ending but the attention is more on the start than the finish.) The changes could phase in over a period of months. Still, the news or timing of those changes often comes as a surprise. If a solar eclipse falls on or within a few days of your birthday you will certainly feel the effects of it over the course of the year. Changes will be complete by the time you reach your next birthday.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth lies between the Sun and Moon, so that the Earth’s shadow darkens the Moon. This only happens with a Full Moon. Lunar Eclipse. Full Moons bring matters to fulfillment. If you have been working on a business deal or looking for some kind of settlement, this eclipse could finalize things. A Full Moon heightens feelings and emotions. All eclipses produce stress in our lives as blockages begin to crumble followed by a feeling of freedom. Sometimes an eclipse signals the end of a relationship, sometimes the taking of a relationship to the next level and sometimes a change in marital status. At the very least, a stage in our lives ends and a new one begins especially for the signs directly affected by the eclipse
An eclipse can brings: a sudden windfall, business opportunity, love encounter etc.
However, I have also seen sudden difficulties as: an accident, divorce, sudden loss etc. Astrologers suggest being very careful during an eclipse period. Restrict travel, surgery or starting a new project.
