The Meaning of an Eclipse
Meaning of Eclipses An eclipse occurs when the Earth stands between the Moon and the Sun or the Moon stands between the Sun and the Earth. The former is called a lunar eclipse and the latter is called a solar eclipse. Note that a lunar eclipse canít occur in a way that we can view it unless there is a full moon.

Both types of eclipses usually mark big changes in our lives with the solar eclipse pointing to changes to do in our rational, practical everyday lives and the lunar eclipse pointing toward shifts in our feelings and subconscious. Both types also usually mark endings or culmination points in our lives.

Although the events that can take place around an eclipse shake up our lives and can make us uncomfortable, they force us to move from one level of evolution and maturity to another. After an eclipse, we often see a period of painful yet optimistic growth.

Eclipses, especially the solar ones, bring news of lifeís big events such as a marriage, birth of a baby, a big move, the signing of a vital business deal, the purchase of a house, or the acquisition of a family pet. An eclipse can also bode surgery, a graduation, or a big break up. No matter what happens, keep in mind that this is the universeís way of being intent on moving you forward in life.

Events that take place just before and just after an eclipse have more weight to them than usual. This is especially true of the lunar eclipses that take place on a full moon.  Eclipses also bring on events that seem fated or part of our destiny. An eclipse does not have to fall into your sign to affect you, but you are probably more profoundly affected by it if it does.

If an eclipse falls on your birthday, the year that follows certainly will be quite eventful. You may experience a big change in lifestyle or in one specific part of your astrological chart depending where the eclipse falls. Guard your health if you are having an eclipse on your birthday, near your birthday, or if it is in your rising sign because you will be a bit more run down than usual.

Take any message or communication that you hear near an eclipse seriously. If you get bad news, like a message about a break up, there is not much chance it can be reversed.
Eclipses also have away of revealing any secrets in your life. They illuminate a condition that you were not aware exists. This can also lead to having to make a major life decision. If you are having trouble with a  relationship, you might finally understand the true character of a person near and dear to you. Many people make big decisions around the time of an eclipse because they finally have all of the pieces of a puzzle and feel like they can make a move.

Not everybody is affected strongly by an eclipse. What happens as the result of one usually has a lot to do where it falls in your chart and what planets it affects. Even if it does not affect you, you might notice that life gets quite lively. Even if you do not have a lot of drama in your personal life, there will quite a bit in the lives of friends, family, and coworkers. You might also notice that the media will be reporting strange news story after strange new story. It is also quite usual for an eclipse to bring news of earthquakes, storms, and bizarre celebrity deaths.

It is best not to overwork yourself during an eclipse. You may be called in to help others, so keep your schedule light. Usually, time feels speeded up and many people experience more coincidences than usual. Sometimes there is also a feeling of anxiety in the air.

Although an eclipse bodes endings, they also signify beginnings. During an eclipse period, you may feel like you are walking across a bridge to a brand new place, with no turning back from where you started. The door behind you closes and locks. You canít go backwards.

To avoid excess drama, try not to issue ultimatums or initiate big moves during an eclipse. Whatever you start will likely not stop. Stay reactive rather than proactive. It is better to avoid knee jerk reactions and to listen rather than act. For instance, if you were thinking of having a major talk with your girlfriend or boyfriend, it is better to do it after the eclipse rather than after as there is a greater chance that relationship issues could escalate into a difference that cannot be reconciled. The ancients always wrote that if you act under an eclipse, the plan would not work out quite the way you expected.

You might also be feeling more emotional than usual, especially if it is a lunar eclipse. Since your judgment may be impaired, try to take as much time as you can to think of what you have heard.

News could also be unexpected and surprising. This does not necessarily mean its going to be bad news, but it could hit you like a bolt out of the blue!  Sometimes the sudden change it bodes means that the universe had something better for you in mind. It is important to be patient and let things run their course. Fighting against negative events that occur during an eclipse can be futile.

Eclipses can also propel you into action. You may be suddenly able to do things you never thought you could before. Even though chaos can result as the result of an eclipse, there is often opportunity available with them as well.

Astrologers say that the message of an eclipse is not usually right on the eclipse, but delivered within four days before or after it. That is why it is so important to pay attention to all news that you hear around the event of an eclipse.
