It’s eclipse season again, and out first one is on September 1, 2016 (on the West Coast) at just after 2 AM PDT. This is a solar eclipse, and it occurs at 9 degrees and 23 minutes Virgo. Eclipses generally affect the masses - events that affect most people in a large area or even worldwide. Since this eclipse occurred in Virgo, this eclipse could affect health issues and organizations that deliver health care and also work related issues. For the United States, homeland security is an issue, and we could be dealing with deceptive and subversive enemies (the Russian computer hacking fits this symbolism). There could be issues related to sudden changes in the airline industry, issues related to foreign nations and cultures, and our own judicial system. The Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus (out of sign) conjunction bodes well with regard to financial issues and the economy. A national leader might have some problems, but has very powerful backing.
As always, this eclipse will affect you personally if you have planets and/or points conjunct or opposite the eclipse point (only a two degree orb). Those planets or points between 7 and 11 degrees of Virgo or Pisces are included. Eclipses are Uranian in nature in that what happens is unexpected, and you might not even be certain as to what is happening for six months. For a solar eclipse, it takes about a year for the event to completely mature. Whether the eclipse is experienced as positive or negative depends on the planet that is conjoined, it’s place in your chart, the condition that the planet is in, and whether and how you might have prepared for what is happening (i.e. free will). If you’d like to know if you have planets or points that fall into this range, let me know. For most people, it will be experienced simply as a New Moon type event. Those are generally felt as the start of something new or a new beginning.
A number of previous eclipses are activated in September as well, which means that this could be a very active and eventful month. We may need to fasten our seat belts.
