An eclipse season always has at least two sets of eclipses, two weeks apart, with usually one Lunar – now on the rise – and one Solar, with a New Moon 26th Feb. Influences, geo-cosmic and geo-physical, generally begin to show a few days before an eclipse, with effects that last weeks, months or even years later. Due to the length of the actual eclipse, the effects of this particular Lunar eclipse could last up to four and a half months; and the Solar even longer.
Eclipses always present important turning points. It’s worthwhile checking the degrees activated in your personal scope, to see where and how a potentially defining moment may be expressed in your own unique birthchart

Our wants and wishes make things happen; and when things go the way we want we think we’re happy; yet all-too-often and with no particular effort from our side, our desires can also make us miserable, especially if our demands are unfulfilled, or laden with obstacles and frustration. So, how do we deal with desire from the astrological point of view?
In the words of Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher who taught about an ever-changing universe, change is our only constant. As the winds of change now begin to blow into a potential hooley, in the midst of such daily whirls and flow all we really want is to be happy.
