February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse In Pisces

February, 2017 is eclipse season. We’ve already experienced a lunar eclipse in Leo on February 10. Now, we will experience a solar eclipse on February 26, and it occurs at 8 degrees  and 12 minutes Pisces. Eclipses generally affect the masses - events that affect most people in a large area or even worldwide. Since this eclipse occurred in Pisces, this eclipse could affect health issues and organizations that deliver health care and also matters of a spiritual nature and/or the Divine. This eclipse could indicate major events at sea or in and around large bodies of water.

For the US, this eclipse will affect our friends. Neptune is the lord of this eclipse, and nations which we have considered longtime friends and allies will be unsure of and/or confused about our current policies and our continued support. Mars and Uranus are conjunct in the twelfth house of this chart over Washington DC, and surprise and unexpected sneak attacks are not out of the question because this can be a volatile combination. The Mars/Uranus conjunction squares Pluto in the ninth house of foreign nations and could add to the danger. These aspects could also indicate airline disasters or other difficult issues with regard to the airline industry. Jupiter opposes Mars/Uranus and squares Pluto from the sixth house of health and work in this chart (which sets up a t-square in cardinal signs). There will be continued controversy with regard to health issues and what to do with and about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Venus in the twelfth house in this chart indicates that diplomacy and compromise are missing. This placement also indicates major events with regard to the creative arts, Hollywood, and the motion picture industry.

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 6 and 10 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 February as well, which means that this could be a very active and eventful period of time. We may need to fasten our seatbelts.

February 10, 2017 Lunar Eclipse In Leo

The month of February is eclipse season in 2017. The first eclipse, a lunar eclipse, occurs on February 10, 2017 at 23 degrees Leo . You will be affected by this eclipse if you have planets or points between 21 and 25 degrees of Leo and/or Aquarius. Most folks will simply experience the eclipse as a full Moon. Full Moons usually indicate a climax or coming to fruition of something, and we are normally more emotional during a full Moon. The emphasis is on creative self-expression through innovation, originality, and/or just being different or unique.

The lunar eclipse in Leo will affect the entertainment industry and children worldwide. Also, Leo brings world leaders into view or prominence. Transiting Uranus, Jupiter, and Saturn all form favorable aspects this eclipse point (and, Saturn, Uranus, and the eclipse point form a grand trine in fire signs). So, I would expect positive results from the eclipse. However, there will still be difficulty because transiting Pluto is inconjunct the eclipse point. And, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a t-square in the eclipse chart. Mercury is the lord of the eclipse, so communications issues, negotiations, and agreements are important.

For the US, the eclipse falls in the twelfth house in the eclipse chart over Washington DC. Health related issues will be prominent. The Affordable Care Act could be repealed (resulting in loss) or it could get new life with some needed changes. Congress will face serious challenges to repealing and replacing the law. Mars and Uranus challenge Pluto by square aspect in the chart, so there will be more protests, rebellion, upheaval, and possibly even violence. Chiron on the Descendant indicates that we will be dealing with painful issues related to others - partners and enemies.

This eclipse occurs fairly close to President Trump’s natal Mars. He already has a fairly fiery personality under the best of circumstances. What occurs from this eclipse as well as the August solar eclipse at 29 Leo could produce some very dramatic results.

Opportunities are more difficult to find in whatever area of your life that Jupiter is transiting. It’s a time to review and revise but maintain a positive outlook.
