A solar eclipse occurs when the moon appears to cross in front of the sun, like the eclipse that took place on August 21, 2017.
The eclipse in Aquarius on February 15 will be only be a partial eclipse. It will begin over the Antarctica and the surrounding ocean and move up and over South. Astrologically, solar eclipses are like double new moons in that they often bring twice the number of opportunities or a regular new moon. The planet Uranus – symbolic of sudden, unexpected change – forms a fairly close angle to the eclipse degree, suggesting that new opportunities may surface suddenly, out of the blue. Mercury, the planet of communication and travel, is closely conjunct the eclipse (by 2 degrees), indicating that communication may be impacted in some way.
This should be a positive eclipse for air signs – Gemini, Libra, and of course Aquarius- and for fire signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. Leo, however, is the polar opposite of Aquarius and may have to be especially vigilant for the opportunities that surface.
Take a look at your own natal chart for where you have Aquarius.That house represents the area where the new opportunities could surface. If you have a planet at 27 degrees, it will be impacted.
Here are the areas the houses represent:
1st self, personality
2ND finances, values
3rd communication, siblings
4th home & family
5TH creativity, fun, romance, children
6th daily work and maintenance of health
7th business & personal partnerships
8th other people’s resources, the paranormal
9th worldview, spirituality
10th career, public face
11th wishes and dreams, networks of friends
12th personal unconscious, what’s hidden
