"It's vital you guard your health if an eclipse falls within five days of your birthday, or if it falls almost exactly opposite your birthday. and If an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows that particular birthday will be a critical one for you." Susan Miller

About Eclipses

"An eclipse is a far more potent lunation. Look to the house the eclipse falls in your natal chart. The affairs of that house will be activated. Does the eclipse fall on a planet in your natal chart? That planet will also be activated. The sign of the eclipse plays a role in the likely events that the eclipse will trigger.

Many people tend to fear eclipses, simply because they often bring about a crisis of sorts that leads to a significant event or change. However, this event or change can be very positive.

Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, we are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because our "inner guides" know that we need it. Human beings are progressive by nature, and although we might stay in situations that are making us miserable for longer than we should, deep down inside we know that change is necessary for growth."

Setting Your New Moon intention when there is an Eclipse

Normally we want to set our intentions for the next month on the New Moon or just after it becomes exact, watching to not do it when the moon is void of course.  When there is an eclipse we want to wait about 48 hours because the energy is intensified.  You may want to wait until we feel more grounded.

What Sign is the Moon in?

First we can consider the sign that the Moon is in, in general.  The moon changes sign about every 2.5 days, taking a lunar month to traverse the sky and our charts.
When the Moon is in Pisces
"We are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a wistful, sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate time. We are especially imaginative, and our intuition reigns under this influence. Boundaries and walls come down, as Pisces energy merges and blends. It's a time when details are overlooked and feelings defy description.
The Moon in Pisces generally favors the following activities: Imaginative undertakings, mystical or spiritual pursuits, inner development, music and drama, going on a retreat, activities involving water."
Water Eclipses: bring water related tragedies or storms  
  • Pisces: depression, oceans, lack of boundaries, mysticism, sleepy, meditation
Pisces: depression, oceans, lack of boundaries, mysticism, sleepy, meditation

What is happening at the lunations?

Every new moon (and full moon) is different because it falls in a different sign.  When the moon is new it is in the same sign as the Sun because, by definition, they are conjunct and the moon is between the earth and the sun.  When the moon is full it is in the opposite sign from the Sun because, by definition, they are the farthest from each other, with the earth between them.

What is happening at a solar eclipse?

  1.  A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves in front of the Sun as seen from a location on Earth. During a solar eclipse, it gets dimer and dimmer outside as more and more of the Sun is covered by the Moon. During a total eclipse, the entire Sun is covered for a few minutes and it becomes very dark outside.

What houses are the new and full moon eclipses falling in your chart?

So an important thing to consider is the house in your natal chart where the lunation is falling, as well as any planets that might be nearby.

"The job of an eclipse is to shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of your life that is being touched, and truth will likely arrive in a startling way. " Susan Miller

So you will need to look at your chart.  I recommend pulling it up at (use the free extended charts, natal and transits option) or you can order from me.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in my Third House
THIRD: The focus is on intellectual and communicative needs. Self-satisfaction is likely to be achieved through learning and teaching - not always in the areas of teaching in the professional sense, but teaching by outwardly articulating ideas and knowledge in conversation or in written form. Intellectual pursuit might take on various forms, and the effort is rewarded with a increased aware of the personal environment.- See more at:
