Partial Eclipse of the Sun on February 15, 2018

Partial Eclipse of the Sun
February 15, 2018
1:05P PT/4:05P ET

Though the accompanying image is that of at Total Eclipse of the Sun (because we are still under the influence of the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse), the Partial Solar Eclipse of February 15, 2018, adds complications to the Energy Influences of the August 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.

Astrologically, under the Partial Solar Eclipse of February 15, the House of your Natal (Birth) Chart that holds 27 degrees of Aquarius is being “inspected”/”reviewed” for how well you’ve done in that area of your life since the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017.  This area of your life is no doubt screaming for attention if there are unresolved issues or a crisis. This is the area of your life in which there’s a need to expand the “space” you currently occupy: physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually, according to the Energy Influences of Aquarius, as an Air Sign.  This might look like the need to be more altruistic and use more of your intellect to make changes for the good of all with respect to the matters of your Aquarius House.  The energy of the opposite House in the Sign of Leo should be used to resolve any “crisis” there may be in the Aquarius House.  We have until July 27 to give adequate attention to these matters, and at that time we will be tested by the public response to  action taken since this February 15 Partial Solar Eclipse.   

The effects of the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse continue to affect us individually and collectively.  Positive possibilities and vulnerabilities are likely…especially for the Leo whose Sun is within a 5° orb on either side of this Eclipse, which is at 28° Leo 53′.  That said, wherever one has the Sign of Leo in the birth chart, the objective should be to minimize the fire and accentuate the spirit and personal fixed nature of the Leo Sign.  That may well mean that we live with whatever crisis we have to face, and just strive to maintain the status quo, unless it’s a medical emergency. Some of the positives to emphasize include: actions related to children, picnics, creative self-expression, acting on stage and or in films, videos, or YouTube; romance and love-making, other physical pleasures, entertainment, games, parties, sports, stock market speculation, building a sunroom or sun porch. Some of the negatives to avoid include: arrogance, lies, gambling, heat exhaustion, sunstroke, heart ailments and disease, inflammatory diseases, infections, political intrigue, political downfall. 

The effects of this Solar Eclipse at 28º Leo 53′ will be with us (and piled on) until the Partial Solar Eclipse in August 2018.  If we are aware of the personal and collective opportunities and challenges brought by the Total Solar Eclipse, the Partial Solar Eclipse in February 2018, can take some of the glare off us, individually and collectively, on Earth.     

For a solar eclipse to occur the Sun and Moon must be conjunct — occupying the same place in space (as in this case) or opposite the Sun Sign at the time of the Eclipse.  The term designated for the Moon, at the time of the Eclipse, is the New Moon. While it does not mean we have a solar eclipse at every New Moon, we cannot have a solar eclipse without a New Moon. The magnetic pull of the Sun and Moon eclipsing the Earth is strong enough for the Earth to receive the Energy of the Sun sign in which the solar eclipse occurs.  This, then, is the Energy of the collective UNconscious that needs active expression on Earth through people born under the sign of the Eclipse (in this case Leo), as their responsibility to the collective whole.  

Of course a Solar Eclipse affects weather patterns, as well.  Under this Solar Eclipse in Leo — being a Fire sign — there are likely to be more wild fires, Sun flairs, electrical fires, and arson of all kinds.

There is more to teach under this Solar Eclipse, and there is greater awareness to gain for all Sun Signs.  Should you wish to have a more specific Reading as to the effects of this Total Solar Eclipse on your birth chart, regardless of your Sun Sign, I will look forward to being of service.
