A solar eclipse is when the Moon is exactly between the Sun and the Earth and blocks the light of the Sun from the Earth. Solar eclipses are very powerful New Moons and are the harbingers of important endings and beginnings. The effects of a solar eclipse are equal in years to the number of minutes the eclipse lasts. The immediate visible effects of the eclipse can be seen in intervals of six months for a period of two years. You get an opportunity to break an old pattern and see a metamorphosis of your life that brings growth and healing.

The New Moon begins at 17°44 February 7, 2008 and the solar eclipse occurs at 3:56 am EST at 17°56 degrees of Aquarius. Peole with Sun signs in the fixed signs (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio) will be most strongly affected, as will those with Aquarius and Leo Ascendants. Those with Leo Ascendants will especially see a difference in their partnerships marriage and business relationships and dealings.

With Mercury retrograde, Chiron and Neptune also in Aquarius, those people who are Water-Bearers are experiencing a time when it is crucial to heal the body, spirit and mind. The opportunities to do this are now presenting themselves. If nothing has alreayd begun to occur or does not occur within three (3) days of the eclipse, they will within six months. Now is the time to work on healing the sexual wounds that have prevented full and healthy sexual expression and left you feeling wounded about your body and about sharing your body with another person; now is the time to release the thoughts that are hindering you from contributing all you can to the world in terms of your brilliant progressive mind; now is the time to open your spirit to the forms of spiritual expression from which you have been hiding…keep your mind open to science but also open up to astrology, intuition and other religions which have mystified you.

Change is the keyword when eclipses occur. One primary way eclipses affect humankind is in relationships. It is very common that the relationship which breaks on an eclipse or within a week of it, is permanently broken. It means it is time to release. However, the relationship that comes together and begin at this time will stand strongly for the future. It may all leave you feeling like your life is out of control, but really it is not; it is that you resisted change in the previous months and finally it has been forced upon you.
