There will be a New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 9 (at 19 degrees of Pisces for those of you who know your charts) and a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on March 23 (at 3 Libra, echoing the eclipse of September 28 last year).
Eclipses mark endings and beginnings; the ancients were able to predict the rise and fall of kings by understanding them thousands of years ago. While emotions run high during and after the eclipse period, so does the possibility of revelation and change – as what is normally hidden is revealed.
Eclipses are particularly powerful when they contact a planet or point in your (or a country’s) chart directly. Hillary Clinton’s Moon is around 22 degrees of Pisces while Donald Trump’s Neptune is at 5 Libra. It will be interesting to watch the political temperature this month in the United States, especially as Hillary’s Moon will be reactivated by another eclipse later this year on September 16 (at 24 Pisces).
In between the two March eclipses the Aries equinox on March 19-20 sounds the gong for the start of the astrological year as the Sun moves out of Pisces and into 0 degrees of the first sign of the tropical zodiac. Yet in spite of this energetic and fiery Mars energy, sensitive energy is still very much available as Mercury, Venus and Neptune remain in watery Pisces. Are you able to watch the Sun rise on the equinox and take a moment to reflect on your place in our solar system?
