There are two more planetary aspects that directly add their influence to the communication and transport issues arising over the next six months. While there are no major fixed stars in this area, there are two asteroid within very close vicinity of solar eclipse February The astrology chart below for the eclipse shows just how close asteroids Juno and Hygeia are to the Sun and Moon of the eclipse and to planet Mercury. Next I will discuss how each of these planets and asteroids influence the solar eclipse astrology.
Mercury also rules rationality and reasoning, primary and secondary education, your neighborhood, siblings and cousins, short distance transport, news and information.
Mercury is fast, lively, adaptable, variable, unemotional and curious. An increase in mental activity will also come from general chit-chat and the sharing of ideas and opinions. You will want to talk about topics that interest you as well as the news of the day, in discussions, conversations, meetings and debates. This solar eclipse signals the right time to start a blog on the internet or to write a book.
It is also a good time to make plans and start business deals, to bargain, buy and sell. Juno was originally a Moon goddess. In fact, the ancient Romans called her Juno Covella, goddess of the new moon. The ancient Roman calendar was lunar and each month began with the new moon.
Juno is a lunar goddess who oversees women of childbearing age, from puberty, to childbirth and marriage. Overcoming separateness through union and becoming one with the universe. Solar eclipse conjunct Hygeia will add the topics of health and medicine to the discussions on marriage and unions. As well as health, asteroid Hygeia associated with hygiene, tradition and natural medicine, doctors and healers, disease, illness, toxins, fear of poison, fear of doctors, fear of medical results, hypochondria, hesitation to get checkups, operations, misdiagnosis, drug abuse, diet, worrying about the health of family and friends.
There are two other planets directly affecting New Moon February , plus some other significant aspects in the horoscope of the eclipse. They are listed below in order of strength.
Scientific and technological breakthroughs affecting fertilization and pregnancy will certainly be controversial and lead to ethical debates. The implications of the cervical cancer vaccine and others medical discoveries will be increasingly important topics of debate, especially in religiously conservative communities. Uranus makes this an eclipse of positive change, greater personal freedom and choice.
It will shine a light on marginalized people such as single parents and same-sex parents. People in general will feel less inhibited to choose their own independent path in terms of non traditional relationships and family structures. Solar eclipse February should expose the limitations of arranged marriages and the sexual abuse often associated with them. This positive Uranus influence on solar eclipse should bring greater awareness of young girls being sold into prostitution and sexual slavery.
You should hear more about taboo subjects like genital mutilation and other human rights violations against young women. Uranus sextile Mercury and asteroid Hygeia should lead to greater awareness of mental health issues. New medicines and greater access to the internet should make it easier to find help and the right treatment.
Wanted to share my experience with current Cancer-Capricron eclipse series occuring in my 5th — 11th house Pisces rising, WS house. Ask questions and meld minds. Take care of your bones and teeth. Together, they make up an eclipse phase which lasts until the July 12, solar eclipse. August 19th , Denver, Co. Jupiter is also right beside the sun and the moon adding a glowing component to the energy.
However, it also means you need to show respect, moderation and discipline. This is to avoid the changes in your life becoming too extreme and upsetting other areas of your life.
Try not to make too many changes as this would end up wasting your energy and getting you nowhere. Focus your energy on one or just a few positive changes. Solar eclipse will also pose ethical questions about lifestyle choices, parenting styles and medicine. Show some moderation with the changes that you know will be controversial.
This will save you from embarrassment and discrimination. Venus sextile Saturn increases your need for companionship. With an existing partner you will look for reassurance or more commitment. This is the perfect aspect to have with a solar eclipse conjunct asteroid Juno. It means this eclipse phase is ideal for getting engaged and married.
You are more likely to attract serious types or those also interested in long-term commitment. Teacher-student type relationships are possible, or you may attract someone much older or younger. New moon February conjunct Mercury makes this is a great time for dating, especially internet dating because of Uranus. Asteroid Juno conjunct solar eclipse is a good omen for meeting your soul mate and finding true love. An eclipse may bring news suddenly, but it takes weeks to understand its real meaning.
If you should suffer under an eclipse, consider that perhaps that situation is being swept away so that the universe can provide you with something better. Be patient and keep an open mind. In the fluid situation it creates you can find ways to benefit. Here is one example. Mary has worked at the same company 15 years and does her job well.
Her raises have been so little as to be almost non-existent, but she was so loyal to her employer she would never think of leaving. Now comes the eclipse and she is downsized. Mary is terribly upset, worried about how she will pay her rent, and if you asked Mary, she would say that the effect of the eclipse on her has been catastrophic. However, the universe, in its wisdom, knows Mary can parlay her experience and qualifications for a much more interesting and well-paying job. The universe clears her basket so it can provide her with something infinitely better.
In two months, Mary found a wonderful new job, and she only then realized what a blessing in disguise the eclipse had brought her. Eclipses can show you that you are capable of much more than you assumed.
You may be offered a chance to write a book or to record an album, for example or head up an entire department of your company. Eclipses sometimes will suddenly open a door, and it would be one that was previously bolted shut and impossible to enter. Here is a good analogy of an eclipse. You are riding a horse in unfamiliar, beautiful terrain. Distracted by the lovely scenery, you completely forget about the fence until it looms suddenly, straight in front of you. It is so much bigger than the trainer let on — this fence is huge.
You cannot imagine going over that fence and surviving! This is a big stretch for you! Yet, it would be something you wish you could do, but in panic, you try to pull on the reins of the horse to try to stop him. However, the horse has been trained to jump, and before you know it, you are flying through the air over a fence you feel is scary high. Each second you are in the air you feel you are moving in slow motion, for as up, up you go and over the massive stone fence.
Remember I had said earlier, eclipses play with your sense of time. The horse is doing the jump for you. You land perfectly. The horse is fine and so are you — but you feel very shaky and breathless, and you are counting your fingers and toes. You did it! You feel proud! That is often the experience of an eclipse. The eclipses that will touch you are the ones that are mathematically significant to your natal Sun, moon, and planets.
Those are the ones that touch the same degree or are close to it of your Sun, moon, or one or two planets in that part of the sky on the day you were born. In each chapter and on my website , be sure to check the birthdates and degree of the eclipse that I will mention in association with each eclipse.
It is true that eclipses in a family of signs that highlight your Sun sign will be vitally important. Typically we will get six to eight eclipses in any one series family of signs in an tomonth period, but you may only feel two or three of those, not all six or eight. The other eclipses, in any series, may have only a mild effect, or none at all. Unless you know astrology, it is hard to tell you how that eclipse will affect you. It would be wise for you to keep a little notebook of events that happen near each eclipse and the sign, date, and degree of each eclipse because in time you will see a pattern every time that planet, your Sun, or moon is visited by an eclipse.
Even if nothing happens, write that down, too. If you ever see an astrologer, that information will prove very valuable.
If your Venus is well aspected in your natal chart that means friendly to one or more planets on the day you were born , then it means that the new eclipse will trigger that happy natal configuration, and the eclipse would likely prove to be positive. If your Venus is afflicted at birth, meaning not friendly to other planets at the time you were born, you may have problems at the eclipse, for that sore point will be triggered occasionally. The difficult eclipse will unlock underlying feelings or factors swirling around you and help you come to terms with that configuration in your chart.
You can and probably will address the topic forthrightly now. Treat your rising sign just like you would your Sun sign. They are equal in importance. Furthermore, if you have a planet near your rising sign, note if the mathematical degrees of the planet and the eclipse are close. The closer the degrees within five degrees , the more likely you will feel something. Your rising sign or ascendant can only be determined by doing your natal chart using the day, month, year, city, and precise time, to the minute, of your birth.
Once you know your rising sign, you must always read for your rising sign as well as your Sun sign. Your rising sign has the same significance as your Sun sign — they are equal in importance in your chart. The rising sign partially explains why every one of the same sign is not alike — you are a combination of both.
The rising sign has another critical function, and without my getting too technical here, it gives further information of the timing of events in your chart. As an aside, if you would like me to write a custom book about your chart, go to SusanMillerMyPersonalHoroscope. The book I write will be just for you — it cannot be sent to anyone else. Be sure to have all of your precise birth information ready when you order. Request the original or vault copy of your birth certificate. You need the original, handwritten birth certificate the nurse recorded.
It is available if you ask for it. At dawn, you have the same rising sign as your Sun sign. I can tell you where all eight planets were based, however, and more information about your Sun. Once you have your explanation of your natal chart, you need never do it again. Your natal chart will remain the same for life, so memorize your rising sign and degree.
This is a very important point to remember. As said above and bears repeating , you have two charts: your solar Sun-sign chart, and your rising sign, custom chart done by the day, month, year, time, and city of birth. Both charts are vital to have and to read! Everyone, everywhere has two charts. If you read one without the other, you will only have half the information you need. So if you are a Capricorn, read for the section on Capricorn, and if you know you have Taurus rising, read for Taurus too.
If you have a planet, or the moon, at the same or in close degree to the eclipse, pay attention to that planet, its placement in the chart, and the house that planet rules. I realize this may be way to complicated to comprehend, so just circle that planet and see what happens later. What if the news of the two charts conflict? Then the one with the more severe news will find comfort from the better aspected chart.
The best way to learn astrology is simply to observe! You are likely to see the area of life that the house rules will become important to you, as well as the area of the chart that the planet rules. You may not know enough astrology to figure these things out, but in time, you will. Taking notes on each eclipse is a good way to get acquainted with the movements of eclipses.
Just read for your rising sign and your Sun birthday sign, and I will take care of the rest for you. With all eclipses, something ends and something else begins. Each eclipse in a series is united in theme and is strung together like pearls on a necklace. It will be triggered by an event happening elsewhere, and that is completely outside your control, but at eclipse time bring vast changes will come straight to your doorstep.
Eclipses speed your sense of time and change the timetables. The job of an eclipse is to shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of your life that is being touched, and truth will likely arrive in a startling way. An eclipse, especially a full moon lunar eclipse, will help you to see the true character of someone close — brace yourself, you may not like what you see. Take any message you hear from an eclipse as non-negotiable and firm, so accept it, and then move on.
Take notice of all news and signals you get near an eclipse, and take them seriously, even if news comes as subjective and ambiguous as gossip. Eclipses almost always bring up all kinds of unexpected changes of direction, assuming your Sun, moon, or a planet is touched. Events brought on by an eclipse always have much more weight than events brought on by a normal new or full moon. Try not to issue ultimatums or make big actions under an eclipse. If an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows that particular birthday will be a critical one for you.
Eclipses that are in the same element fire, air, water, or earth as your birth sign are generally friendly and helpful. At eclipse time, keep your schedule light and elastic. No matter what is on your agenda at the time, something else will come in to demand immediate attention. Leos tend to feel new moon solar eclipses strongly, because the Sun is their ruler. Said another way, the Sun rules Leo. Cancers tend to feel full moons and lunar eclipses strongly, as the moon rules Cancer. Once a family of signs is finished, it will not be back for seven or eight years.
Gold Star Point: Eclipses repeat in nearly exact degree and sign every 19 years. The four eclipses coming up each year will arrive in the same degree, sign, and precise day as those that came by nineteen years earlier. You might ask, does an eclipse deliver its news on the very day of the eclipse? Not always. This is important, so be sure to read this!
You may be feeling more emotional than usual under an eclipse, especially if the eclipse is lunar full moon. Do not have an over-packed schedule at eclipse time. Eclipses can help you do things you never thought you could do! Not all eclipses in a family of signs will affect you. Math will make the difference. The eclipse does not have to fall in your sign or rising sign to affect you. At the other extreme — from the temperate regions of northeastern Siberia — you may catch the final stages of the partial eclipse low in the eastern sky for a short while after the sun sets and the moon rises on January That July 27, , production gave us the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century to The lunar disk often exhibits a coppery color during a total lunar eclipse.
