Solar Eclipse: 9th Mar 2016 1:54 a.m. GMT
Location of New Moon: 18 Pisces 55

A lot of astrologers believe that we should not limit our focus just to the day of an eclipse when we predict what influences they might bring forth, and they often have their own perspectives on this. Some suggest that the influence of a solar eclipse would last for six months, while some believe that it would last for three years. To me, the influence of solar eclipse is extensive, and its effect starts from three months prior to the day of eclipse to one year after it; for lunar eclipses, the influence is rather weak and is easily manifested in our living, and will dissipate 6 months after the eclipse. However, astrologers tend to agree that when Sun and lunar nodes are in square, the effect of the eclipses would become prominent, a period which some astrologers call “Moon Wobble Time”. It refers to the period which starts from two weeks prior to the Sun-lunar node square to one week after its exact degree.
2016 Moon Wobble Time
11 Mar Sun-South node conjunction duration 26th Feb- 18th Mar
7 Jun Sun-Lunar nodes square duration 24th May – 14th Jun
4 Sep Sun-North node conjunction duration 21st Aug -11th Sep
29 Nov Sun-Lunar nodes square duration 15th Nov – 6th Dec
The moments when Mars, Saturn and other outer planets start to influence eclipse degrees we often witness major incidents. Saturn is in hard aspect with the new moon at the time the solar eclipse happen in March, it will begin retrograde at the end of March which will trigger this degree again twice when at 18° Sagittarius. We predict that major social incidents, which reflect the properties of the planets profoundly and directly, will be triggered during the time as the eclipses happen; these events may be related to organisations and institutions governed by Saturn, or they could be related to the conservative atmosphere among the countries. Mars, on the other hand, will first trigger the new moon of the March solar eclipse, then the full moon of the March lunar eclipse, while Saturn will once again trigger the solar eclipse point, the influence of which will last to the end of 2016.
If the ecliptic degrees at which a new moon, full moon and first quarter or last quarter moon are in important aspect to the location of the new moon of solar eclipses or the axis of full moon of lunar eclipses, events of similar nature could be triggered also. Triggers by a new moon or full moon usually last for one month, while those triggered by first quarter moon or last quarter moon will last for two days. If there is interaction between Mars, Saturn, the outer planets or Chiron with the eclipse point, as previously discussed, lunar aspects are found at the same time, or there are significant outer planet placements or stationary outer planets, the possibility of major social upheaval becomes very high.
For those months whose new moon is influenced by the March eclipses, the influence could last up to a month.
5 Jun 2016 new moon at 14 Gemini (Moon Wobble Time)
1 Oct 2016 new moon at 8 Libra (Mars triggers the Sun-Moon opposition of lunar eclipse in March + stationary Pluto)
29 Dec 2016 new moon at 7 Capricorn (Saturn triggers the new moon of solar eclipse in March + stationary Uranus)
The months where the full moon is influenced by the March eclipses, the influence could last up to a month.
14 Dec 2016 full moon at 22 Gemini in square with the new moon of solar eclipse (Saturn triggers the new moon of the March solar eclipse)
For the months where the first quarter moon is influenced by the March eclipses, the influence could last up to two days.
12 Jun 2016 (Moon Wobble Time + stationary Neptune)
9 Sep 2016 (Moon Wobble Time)
7 Dec 2016
For the months where the last quarter moon is influenced by the March eclipses, the influence could last up to two days.
27 Jun 2016 (stationary Mars)
23 Sep 2016 (stationary Pluto)
Regions influenced by solar eclipses and ACG map
In ancient time, astrologers believe that regions over which the solar eclipse was visible would suffer the most severe influence. In spring 2015 when the solar eclipse occurred, most of the Europe could see it happening. At the time we also found Mars at the ascendant of the 2015 September lunar eclipse charts of Paris and Brussels, highlighting the issue of the European refugee crisis and the Paris terrorist attack. It reminds us that the observations of the ancients are still relevant and valid and worth taking notice of. The solar eclipse of March 2016 will be over South-east Asia and Australia. The solar eclipse back in 1998, belongs to the same Saros Series as this March the 2016 eclipse. In 1998 South-east Asian countries were undergoing the most severe financial crisis they had ever confronted. The regions therefore directly affected by the eclipse South-east Asia and Australia, which witnessed the 2016 March solar eclipse, deserve our meticulous attention. Extra consideration should be paid to any outer planets also showing over these regions in the ACG map of the solar eclipse.
In the national charts of the countries listed below, the Sun, Moon, the ascendant or MC form hard aspects to 18 degree of mutable signs, the point at which the solar eclipse happens.
Sun: Brazil, Egypt, Denmark (constitution), Italy, Kenya, North Korea, Lithuania, Norway, Syria, Vatican
Moon: Germany, Northern Cyprus, Latvia, Poland, Malta, Portugal, Syria
Asc: Denmark (constitution), Ethiopia, Laos, Libya
MC: Mali, Turkey, Russia (1917 chart), Mauritius, Namibia
In the national charts or important charts of the countries listed below, Sun, Moon, the ascendant or MC form hard aspects to 3° degree of cardinal signs, the point at which the lunar eclipse happens. Many astrologers believe that important placements or aspects at the first few degrees of cardinal signs often pull the more influential global powers or countries into major events.
Sun: China, France (the chart of the First Republic), Croatia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Venezuela
Moon: Estonia, Greece, Indonesia, South Korea, Ireland, Laos, U.K (1066 chart), Spain, Turkey
Asc: Bahamas, Czech, Taiwan, Iceland, India, Kuwait, U.K (1801 chart)
MC: New Zealand, Uganda, Salvador
In addition to determine which regions can visibly witness the solar eclipse, we can also use the ACG map, a modern astrology technique, to predict which regions or areas would obviously be subject to the influence of solar eclipse, especially for those which has Mars, Saturn, the outer planets or Chiron at the angles of their eclipses charts. These regions would be under severe influence of the eclipses.
