Solar Eclipses and Astrology

Eclipses are very important in astrology. They take place on New Moon days and tend to be powerful and transformative, as they mark major and unexpected events in life. Such events could be happy or heartbreaking. Eclipses often bring marriages, divorces, promotions, relocation, childbirth, breakdowns, new beginnings, meeting a soulmate, the arrival or death of a pet, etc. The events have karmic nature; they are destined to happen.


Based on where the eclipse falls in your birth chart or for your zodiac sign, there will be a big change in a particular area of your life. Solar eclipses usually bring new beginnings and opportunities, while lunar eclipses bring endings and breakdowns.

An eclipse will push you out of your comfort zone. Eclipses are how the Universe makes sure that we are not stuck in one place for too long.
