Why is the upcoming Solar Eclipse such a big deal and what affect might it have on your life according to your Sun Sign? Russell Grant explains:
The total Solar Eclipse on March 8/9th depending on where you are in the world will be the first Eclipse of the year. Eclipses are intensified New and Full Moons and this Solar Eclipse is also a Super Moon which means that the Moon is really close to the earth in its orbit. This further intensifies its energetic impact so we will see higher tides, increased volcanic activity and extreme weather. The eclipse will be at 18 degrees Pisces and as well as the Sun and Moon, we also have Mercury, Neptune, Chiron and the South Node in Pisces while Jupiter will be opposite the Eclipse. So, there’s going to be a lot of activity in the skies.
New Moons and Solar Eclipses can represent new beginnings that have consequences that could last for six months to a year. Eclipses occur in 19 year cycles and the last Solar Eclipse to occur at 18 degrees Pisces was on March 8th 1997. Look back to this time in your life and think about what changes you went through at that time. You might also think back to last September when we had a Solar Eclipse in Virgo as the upcoming Eclipse might continue themes from then.
Pisces represents love, compassion and understanding and is connected to intuition, imagination, creativity and healing. Exploring new spiritual and religious dimensions can help unlock the door to your subconscious and put you in touch with the inner you.
