How To Deal With Eclipses: 9 Points
here for eclipse dates
The following will give you points consider
when you are preparing for an eclipse. First however, let?s
define two terms: the solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon stands
between the Sun and Earth, cutting off the light of the Sun.
A solar eclipse is always a new moon, and tends to mark new
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth stands
between the Moon and the Sun, cutting off the light of the
Sun from the moon. A lunar eclipse is always a full moon and
usually marks endings or culmination points.
Now let?s review the points to keep in mind
about eclipses so that you can better deal with them should
any touch you in an unexpected way.
1. Eclipses are dramatic "wild cards" in our
horoscopes. They shake us up so that we can move from one
level of evolution and maturity to another, higher phase,
2. Eclipses bring news of life's big events:
a birth of a baby, a marriage, a promotion or career breakthrough,
important travel, the signing of a vital business deal, the
start of one?s own business, the sale or purchase of a house,
a cross country move, the acquisition of a family pet (or
loss of one), surgery or see an important health development,
college graduation (or the eclipse may mark the start of study),
divorce, publishing a book, and so forth. Monumental meetings
and breakups or changes on one?s job are also common on eclipse
dates. No matter what occurs, it will become evident that
the universe is intent on moving you forward.
3. Events that follow an eclipse have more
weight than events brought on by a normal new or full moon.
In fact, an eclipse is like a turbo-new or full moon?qit packs
much more energy and punch. An eclipse may even bring on an
event that seems "fated". Eclipses always bring unexpected
changes of direction if you have a planet that will be touched.
The eclipse does not have to fall in your sign to affect you.

4. If an eclipse falls on your birthday, the
year that follows certainly will be quite eventful. You may
experience a big change in lifestyle or in one specific part
of your chart.
5. Guard your health if you are having an eclipse
on your birthday, near your birthday, or on your rising sign
degrees because you will be a bit more run down than usual.
6. Take any message you hear at the time of
an eclipse seriously. There usually is no way to get a situation
reversed. If someone brings news you don?t like on an eclipse
realize that there is little chance you can get it reversed,
at least not for four months, if ever. See the news as essentially
a non-negotiable decision and try to move on.
7. Eclipses shine the bright light of truth
to the part of your life that is touched by the eclipse. Most
of the time, eclipses act as brilliant illuminators, revealing
a condition that you were unaware existed. They can also act
as catalysts to a major life decision. Also under an eclipse,
you may finally understand the true character of a person
Imagine that a puzzle piece fell out of the
sky into your hands. This new piece of information, when added
to the overall picture of your puzzle, will change your understanding
of it and bring you a flash of insight. You may say to yourself,
"For the first time, I understand!" Now you have a full picture
of the situation and can make a fuller, more realistic appraisal
of what that it means to you, and what you must do next. You
will gain maturity and seasoning.
8. Even if an eclipse won't affect you (and
I will tell you in your forecast), you will nevertheless notice
that there is plenty of action around you, not only in your
own circle but also in the world at large. The news media
will be filled with information.
In your personal life, you will hear of many
monumental life events (the kind we listed earlier in #2)
in the lives of people you know, both friends and family.
You may be called on to help others at this time, so try to
keep your schedule light. There is a feeling of life moving
on speedily, fast forward, of great acceleration.
9. With all eclipses, something ends and something
else begins. During an eclipse period, you may feel like you
are walking across a bridge to a brand new place, with no
turning back from where you started. The door behind you latches,
and locks. You can?t go back because after the eclipse you
will know more and understand things that were never clear
to you before. In that sense, you really can?t go home again.
10. Try not to issue ultimatums or make big
actions under an eclipse. Bide your time and act in a few
weeks when there will be less static in the air. It?s best
to respond to others? messages but try not to initiate your
own. Said another way, it is better to listen than to act.
Let?s say you need to sign a contract?qthat
is OK to do if you are presented with one at eclipse time.
You didn?t initiate that contract?qsomeone else did. However,
let?s say you want to have a major talk with your boyfriend
or girlfriend because you are unhappy. Do so later, well after
The first is an action someone else is asking
you to respond to (good) but the latter is an action you chose
to take under the eclipse (not so good). The ancients always
wrote that if you act under an eclipse, the plan would not
work out quite the way you expected. That?s why it?s better
to consider the ideas of others at eclipse time but not to
make proposals or decisions of your own at that time.
11. You may be feeling more emotional than
usual under an eclipse, especially if the eclipse is lunar
(full moon). Since your judgment may be impaired or pieces
of information missing, try to get as much time as you can
to think about what you heard. If you can, wait a week's time
before deciding. If someone comes to you with a proposal,
consider it carefully. If after looking at it from all sides
and you like it, proceed.
12. A quick response to news generated by the
eclipse?qoften quite out of the blue---may be required. Have
your wits about you! As said earlier, keep your normal schedule
light as you might have something new to focus on that will
need your immediate attention.
13. Don?t be too quick to judge an eclipse
as ?goodO?L or ?badO?L?qeclipses may act suddenly but it takes
weeks to understand their real meaning. If you should suffer
under an eclipse, consider that sometimes the universe had
something better for you in mind. Be patient and keep an open
14. Eclipses can help you do things you never
thought you could do. You may be offered a chance to write
a book or to record an album, for example. Eclipses sometimes
will open a door?qone that was previously impossible to enter.
15. Eclipses play with our sense of time. They
bring events that you assumed were months or years away, to
your doorstep now. Here is an example of how an eclipse often
You are riding a horse in unfamiliar, beautiful
terrain. You were told that you would have to jump a tall
stone fence (a substantial obstacle or big-deal project) five
miles down the road (later in life). Distracted by the scenery
(life) you forget about the fence, until it looms suddenly
in front of you. You don't feel ready to jump (take a risk).
You cannot imagine going over that fence and surviving! This
is a big stretch for you! Yet, it symbolizes something you
want to do, so you feel conflicted (fear vs. wanting). Perhaps
you momentarily panic or try to stop. However, the horse (your
inner power) has been trained to jump and before you can pull
on the reigns, you find yourself flying through the air. The
horse is doing it for you. You land perfectly. The horse is
fine and so are you--but you feel Shaky.
It all happened so quickly! You knew the fence
was coming up, but being distracted by the scenery (everyday
life), you didn't expect it so soon. Now, however, you feel
quite accomplished--proud of what you did, and rightly so!
Had it not happened without time to think, you may not have
had the courage to try. This, dear reader, is the feeling
brought on by an eclipse.
16. A word on the timing of an eclipse. A message
brought to you by an eclipse is usually delivered within four
days of the actual date of the eclipse, but not always. Yet
you can sometimes feel a full moon lunar eclipse as early
as two weeks prior to it or up to six months later when another
planet is needed to trigger the news. (Most likely however,
news will occur either at the eclipse or a month to the day
later, plus or minus four day--that is your zone to watch
if things don't happen immediately).
17. Take notice of ALL news and signals you
get near the eclipses. While often news is delivered in a
dramatic and obvious way, sometimes the news will come in
much more subtly, as a secret or as a piece of gossip. Nevertheless
it will foretell dramatic changes to come.
18. 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.
I hope you have found this helpful! Perhaps
you may want to refer to this list as you move through the
eclipses of this year.
