Eclipses represent changes, sometimes small, sometimes major. Think of it as something ending or going away to make room for something else that must come in. But with the Solar Eclipse at the end of February 2017, it looks like the word ‘change’ may be too mild a descriptor.
I’ve set the eclipse chart for Adelaide because the eclipse will quite angular there…right on the 4th house cusp (home, roots, foundations), but the eclipse will be felt by people all around the world.
The first thing you might notice is that the chart has NOTHING in a fixed sign. There is a strong cardinal influence (a strong need for action), and also a strong mutable influence (a need to disseminate), but what the chart doesn’t have is any fixed need to keep things as they are, to sustain things.)
Looking at the Sabian Symbol for the eclipse degree emphasizes this need to move, to take action, even more: “The race begins: a jockey spurs his horse to great speed.”
And the strong cardinal influence is enhanced even more by Mars, the principle of action, of attacking a problem, is extremely strong being in Aries, the cardinal sign it rules, and right next to the planet of the unexpected and of breaking with the past (Uranus), and the planet of discord, of shaking up the status quo (Eris). This eclipse will see some major world shakeups.
Will it effect you? If you have something in you in your chart between 5 and 11 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, you can expect major changes in your life; things will never be the same after the dust settles as they were before. If you have something between 18 and 25 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you will feel a need to take action, to make changes in your life, and you won’t be able to rest until you feel you have conquered some obstacle or defeated a problem.
