The general consensus on eclipses is that New Moon eclipses are “good” and full moon eclipses are “bad”. I’d like to hash this out a little!!
I watch eclipses carefully in my kids’ charts, just as a heads-up, a little early warning system for changes in their lives that I might get a phone call about (my kids are grown and gone; my son’s 19 and my daughter is 35). This last eclipse at 22 Leo had me holding my breath because my daughter’s Sun is 24 Aquarius. Hmmmm, which way was this going to swing? She applied for internship at 5 different hospitals last month, criss-crossing across the country while battling a severe case of bronchitis. This is her 2nd year of applying; last year she didn’t match with a facility and she had to stay in grad school for an extra year. My daughter is DRIVEN, Pluto trine Sun, and yet, also has Uranus square Sun, the “shoot yourself in the foot” aspect, as I like to call it.
So a full moon eclipse, on her Sun, was, to me, going to be the “seal the deal” aspect. Either she gets an internship, or she is going to have to look at something else to do for the rest of her life, because her options were getting slim. I knew it really could swing either way, because full moon eclipses do indeed bring things to a culmination. An in-your-face culmination, especially when they impact personal planets.
She got the email from John Hopkins accepting her as an intern on Friday. Her grad school days are over. She gets to go on to the next phase of her life as a neuropsychologist.
My point in all this is that full moon eclipses CAN certainly bring “unwanted” endings, but they can also relieve us from gridlock. If you have a full moon eclipse happen on a sensitive area in your chart and “nothing happens”, I suggest you look carefully at what is “trying” to happen, and see if you have any old patterns of hanging on that may be blocking the change. Ask a friend if you’re not seeing something, and try to keep an open mind.
By the way, one month to the day prior to an eclipse (when the Moon is at the same spot as it will be during the eclipse) and one month AFTER the eclipse are sensitive, trigger days. I have had many an “event” happen on those days.
In hindsight, have you seen how a Full Moon eclipse has liberated you from something?
