On the world stage a lunar eclipse, of course, affects politicians. We can expect the daily agitation and noisy news to crescendo. Our current President has a Leo ascendant and this February eclipse will fall in his house of hidden enemies and secrets. We shall see. The stars don’t judge or take sides they tell us the quality of energy flowing but not necessarily how it will manifest.
The next eclipse on February 26th is an annular eclipse of the Sun. The annular eclipse is when a narrow ring of the Sun is visible beyond the dark mask of the Moon. This eclipse is at 8 degrees of Pisces. It will affect the mutable signs: Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius. We can expect these very changeable signs to feel confused and hazy about how to move forward. Solar eclipses affect the actions we need to take in our personal lives yet this eclipse clouds the path forward; again a paradoxical blend.
My cosmic cosmic advice for eclipses is keep close to your center and do what you feel you can manage. In the week before the eclipse do not take major decisions or make major changes. They usually will not prove wise and will eventually be reversed.
If we imagine the ancients watching as the Moon or Sun darken we can get a feeling of how awesome an eclipse event was. Today we are not necessarily in awe of nature but we can feel the energy of an eclipse and sense that something must change. It will. Ride the feeling out and see what changes you can make in your life.
Stay tuned: the eclipse on August 21, dubbed The Great American Eclipse, should be a doozy.
