Aries – how will this eclipse affect you?
This total solar eclipse will radically shift your awareness giving you a greater understanding of your love life, romantic partners and exactly what it is you want to make you happy. You may have been stuck in a cycle where you’re the one doing all the giving with the other person expecting you to dance to their tune. This is going to stop shortly and you’ll feel empowered by your own self-determination. You’ll be laying down new rules of engagement and those who aren’t prepared to get with the program better get moving pretty quickly.
If you’ve been a little apprehensive about taking risks in life now you’ll be thinking differently and won’t want to miss vital opportunities that require digging deeper for that gambling instinct in which something big may pay off. This may be related to love or it may indeed affect you financially where you want some assurance that you can improve cash wise. But gambling is never an assurance so tread carefully.
Children will also take on greater importance in your life whether you have them or not. If you are without a child, some of you at childbearing age will now be considering the ramifications on your lifestyle if you choose this path. For others who are currently parents there may be some challenges now as you try to reconnect or deal with issues that have been long-standing. In any case, you can cement your relationship and come out the other end with a better understanding both ways.
Taurus – how will this eclipse affect you?
Your family affairs will be under the spotlight as this total solar eclipse radically alters everything in this Department of your life. This should be a transformative cycle as Mars also joins the eclipse and pushes you into balancing the needs of your relatives with your own personal wants and desires.
Educational pursuits will also come under closer scrutiny and if you’ve been studying something recently you may decide that this is not exactly for you. You want to resonate with what you are doing now and peace of mind will take on greater importance. You realize that life is so short and that there’s no use beating around the bush. Some of you may have been stuck in a rut and will want to do something meaningful in your life so this is an opportunity to seek out those study courses or degrees which are going to help you not only earn more cash but to make you feel as if you now have some purposeful meaning in what you do.
The North node may also cast a shadow on some of your personal belongings such as house, car and other valuable items. You could be reevaluating what things really are of value in your life now.
Gemini – how will this eclipse affect you?
How you communicate with people is vitally important in determining the success of your future and as this total solar eclipse takes place in your sphere of communications you’ll find your interest in this area keenly growing. You will start to connect the dots and understand how speech and language have an incredible influence on others. You’ll want to study patterns of language, neurolinguistics, and the psychology of how you can better get on with others. Part of this investigation will trigger your interest in travel and if you’ve been leading a sedentary life for some time that’s all about to change.
Travel is not only physical but mental and in your case, you will find a common meeting point where the two converge. Getting out and about, meeting new people and particularly those who are of like mind and can exchange ideas will be spotlighted in the coming year or so. With Jupiter’s transit also expanding your intellectual horizons this is going to be extraordinarily powerful period and one in which you will learn many new lessons in life that you can apply practically.
Your relationship with siblings (if you have any) will also come to the fore and previous problems must now be addressed or it could be another 18 to 20 years before those issues are resolved.
Cancer – how will this eclipse affect you?
Sometimes success is unconsciously feared so whatever it is that’s been holding you back from attaining your financial goals can be worked through over the next few months and beyond. Karmic forces will be unleashed during this total solar eclipse thereby bringing your attention to issues of money, value and expanding those opportunities for you to do better and the live the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of. Now is the time to take hold of those dreams and bring them down to practical reality and go for what it is that you want irrespective of what others think or feel. In other words, this is a time of courage as you’ve been slowly been building up these resources to make the necessary changes.
Family matters may be under a cloud for the time being as you work through what you need give those in your close-knit circle the sort of life they want. But fear may surround you as well and your courage is what’s going to carry you through. If you look back 18 to 20 years ago you will find similar circumstances and planetary influences were affecting you and in fact, this period now will be one in which you can resolve some of those previous karmic obstacles.
As this cycle progresses you will find yourself earning more money and this is because of your changing thought patterns. As long as you bring your focused will to bear on these desires you’ll be successful.
Leo – how will this eclipse affect you?
You want to stand out during and following this current important total solar eclipse which takes place in your Sun sign. This pattern of behaviour and your personality type is now changing and this of course requires adaptation by you and those you live and work with. Initially, you’ll test the water to see whether, for example a new hairstyle, garments or even words have some shock value. How will people react? Well, Leo, you’ll never really know unless you try. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
This is most definitely a period of experimentation with your relationships (Uranus trines the eclipse) and more importantly how you view yourself. It is self-image that matters the most and how we project that onto the world. This is what happens when the eclipse and the karmic forces of nature bear upon your Sun sign. Over the next few months, the North node will continue to transit your Sun sign of Leo bringing with it many radical changes in your life and relationships.
You will be keenly interested in stepping outside the norm of your relationships as well. Your tastes in terms of people will be shifting and you may even surprise yourself with your choice of partners and friends during this upcoming period.
Virgo – how will this eclipse affect you?
Those things in life we fear are the things we must deal with and eradicate. Under this total solar eclipse, you’ll have to address some of those fears and incidences or circumstances that have weighed heavily upon you throughout your past life. Going back into history is sometimes painful and as the karmic forces of nature impact upon your 12th house of hidden secrets, spirituality and self-analysis, you’ll gradually work through this creating the momentum you need to have a life which is burden free.
Guilt and shame are two of the worst emotions we can feel and if you’ve been weighed down by these feelings over the years you’ll finally have a breakthrough. With the eclipse transiting this essential part of your horoscope you will be able to expand your insight and take to meditation and yoga and other self-analytical practices which will bring you to a point in your life where finally peace and satisfaction prevail. But you need to make the effort and put aside the time, and more importantly cast off your judgement and prejudice.
If you’ve had preconceived ideas about all this new age airy-fairy stuff you need to suspend your suspicion and see what happens if you do look deeply into yourself with a view to becoming a more integrated person. This seems to be the focal point of the next year or so. Charity and working with those less privileged may be keys to unraveling some of these inner mysteries.
Libra – how will this eclipse affect you?
Many of you born under the sign of Libra will be experiencing a significant shift relating to friendships over the next couple of years and all due to this very powerful solar eclipse taking place in your 11th house of friendships and social activities. You have to re-evaluate what defines a friendship and some of you will have found your long-held friendships dissolving before your very eyes. In some cases, you may not even have any idea why this is happening but you’re questioning the motives of anyone and everyone now, including your family.
This sounds like a period of mistrust, fear and dissatisfaction but believe me you can only clear the decks of useless individuals in your life by dealing with these issues fairly and squarely. You mustn’t allow others to take advantage of you and you will certainly be seen to be a little harder, more ruthless in your dealings with others generally, but this is going to spare you considerable suffering in the future.
Part of this process relates to your understanding that self-esteem and self-worth are determined by the type of people you allow into your life. You are making a statement now and will not accept anything less than what you believe you deserve. This is going to shake up your life somewhat and it could even shock those who are closest to you especially when they come under your scrutiny and they don’t live up to the new standards that you are setting for yourself.
With Saturn also influencing and also being influenced by this important solar eclipse and being in your third house of communications it could be tough for a while but you will learn to economise with your feelings and words. This is a period where you’ll be more frugal and less prone to being a spendthrift as well. Savings and future security will become a pivotal focus of your activities.
Scorpio – how will this eclipse affect you?
You have an extraordinary spiritual and material shift about to culminate with your ruling planet Mars joining this important total solar eclipse in your career sector, the most powerful 10th house of the zodiac. How you deal with these energies is up to you but with a little planning and diligent, hard work you will achieve something extraordinary over the coming months. These karmic forces indicate that you’ve already worked consistently hard for some years now and have been waiting patiently for the results. Not that it’s the results you are focused on, but good work, expertise and a refining of your skills which will slowly result in a better reputation with additional income.
This 10th house of your horoscope has to do with the development of your ego and being ruled by the Sun which is the focal point of the eclipse, indicates the importance of this event on your professional activities and also the development of your character. Having the influence of the shadowy karmic forces on you at this time indicates you’ll become much more serious about what you want in life. Your upbeat nature which is at the heart of your personality may have to be mothballed for a while as you become more attentive to success, money and material necessities. If you can bring your concentration to bear upon what has to be done you’ll come out the other end in a completely new and improved lifestyle and persona.
Sagittarius – how will this eclipse affect you?
This total solar eclipse takes place in the Sun sign of Leo in your ninth house in association with Mars bringing with it incredible opportunity spiritually and philosophically and materially as well. It brings with it the promise of your past karma. The actions of your past will now meet the promise of your present and future life and those fruits, depending on those actions, whether good or bad, will likewise be reaped by you now. You will take an interest in expanding your mind, taking on new forms of education and learning and this doesn’t necessarily mean university or college degrees but a keen interest in topics which you feel a resonance with. So take this as a period of great learning and expansion.
Foreign affairs, travel and perhaps even moving offshore may be of importance to you at this time. This could be because of your desire to expand so much that you feel a little stifled by the same old environment and cultural interests you’ve had over the years. This may also have to do with Saturn which has been transiting your zone of self-development as well as self-limitation and so the eclipse is going to help lessen the resistance you’ve been feeling in your life. It’s only through rising above the concept of self-limitation that an expansion of self can take place. You’re passionate about this spiritual adventure and will do so with a sense of discovery and self-improvement.
Capricorn – how will this eclipse affect you?
A huge transformation is about to take place under this total solar eclipse which occurs in your eighth house of rebirth. With Jupiter also transiting your professional sector for the next couple of months this is going to be an extremely important period of development and depending on how you handle the elimination of those things that are unnecessary in your life, your growth will be more or less accelerated.
This is also a period where you must learn to let go of those habits which are holding you back and part of this transformative process is a release of those habits. With those habits are ingrained associations. For example, if you’re having a difficult discussion with your partner or spouse, reaching for a cigarette or a drink may have become a natural reaction and association. By cultivating a keener awareness of these behaviours you’ll be able to break the back of them and move through life less burdened by these hindrances.
Sexuality is also under the influence of this sector and the eclipse will bring with it an acceleration and amplification of your desires in this area of your life. If this has been a sore point for you, dealing with matters of intimacy it will almost certainly be high on your agenda. The problem you may have here is that you’ll be obstructed by the other person who is the second half of this equation. They may not be ready for change, transformation and the necessary process of elimination that goes with growth.
Aquarius – how will this eclipse affect you?
Relationships are going to be of prime importance and the institution of marriage itself will come under the spotlight for those of you born under the sign of the water bearer. The karmic forces released under this total solar eclipse will force you to re-evaluate your view of this institution and whether or not it suits you-married or not. Those of you currently in relationships will be thinking about alternatives, trying to make your marriage or your long-term commitments adapt to who you are and what you want in life rather than, as you have been for many years, adapting yourself to the institution which is been culturally foisted upon you. In this respect, it’s a period of independent thought where you can finally break free of your past and those pre-conditioned mental habits that seem to have been superimposed upon you by others.
With Uranus, one of your ruling planets transiting the third house as well, you have excellent opportunities for lifting your level of communication during these coming months. Approaching any relationship either existing or new with the spirit of free thought and enquiry can only help to solidify those relationships. This ensures the future will be built on a solid foundation of what you want and of course what your partner wants too ( not what society determines is right! ).
This seventh house is all about negotiation and dealing with what others in the world also want. The coming months almost certainly be a period of adaptation but with the correct perspective, you can expect a whole lot of good luck in your relationships if you can accept the changes that is inevitable.
Pisces – how will this eclipse affect you?
This eclipse will impact upon your working life and the way you manage your day-to-day activities. This is going to be particularly notable in terms of how you and your co-workers agree. Your desire will be to collaborate more easily with a view to increasing profits and further professional opportunities. Health matters which have been swept under the rug will no longer be able to be ignored and so this is a wake-up call that you need to pay more attention to those things that are impacting you adversely and also can help you turn the corner in terms of your well-being.
You’ll be looking at changing your philosophy of work and although others may look down upon you for this you know in your heart of hearts that it’s time for a big change. Those who have been taking advantage of you will sense the change and may not like what they see because there’s nothing in it for them any longer. Changes in this respect will also be noticed in your domestic environment with family members who have had some measure of emotional control over you feeling their grip lessening. It’s time to celebrate and start making those changes in your life you know are going to create a difference.
