A New Moon partial Solar Eclipse occurs today at 1:06 PM PST, in the sign of Aquarius; visible in Antarctica and South America. This planetary transit is also the next reset button in direct response to our last solar eclipse in Leo (at the end of last August).
An eclipse is never a solo event.
A solar eclipse occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. Most often, there are two eclipses in a row but, there are on occasion three during an eclipse season.
The New Moon phase of the lunar calendar signals launching new beginnings. In conjunction with a Solar Eclipse, the effects of this New Moon can impact us for up to six months following this event.
Aquarius is ruled by the unconventional and free spirited Uranus, and one of the most forward thinking and independent signs of the zodiac. People born under this sign usually view the world as a place full of possibilities, and spend time thinking about how things can be improved. For this reason, this New Moon Solar Eclipse is the perfect time for fellowship, social pursuits, group projects, humanitarian efforts, or trying something new.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 27 degrees and 8 minutes of Aquarius, affecting people born with planets and points at approximately 21 to 30 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius), and 0 to 3 degrees of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) the most.
