Lunar And Solar Eclipses: October 25, 2022 Is The Next One To Observe!

An eclipse is the apparent disappearance of a star A due to the interposition of another star B between the light source C and this star A. In astrology, we regularly talk about lunar and solar eclipses that we observe from Earth. We encounter at least 4 eclipses (2 solar and 2 lunar per year) but we can go up to 7 eclipses (solar and lunar combined) per year. The eclipse phenomenon occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are almost aligned!

1. What is a lunar eclipse? Here's the definition

A lunar eclipse forms whenever the Moon is in the Earth's shadow. So, if you were on the Moon at that time, you would not see the Sun at all because of the Earth. This pattern occurs only during Full Moon, when the Moon is in opposition to the Sun.

2. What is a solar eclipse? Read the definition here

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is positioned in front of the Suncompletely or partially obscuring the image of the Sun from the Earth. This pattern can only occur during the New Moon, when the Sun and Moon are conjunct ("next to each other"). Even though the Moon is much smaller than the Sun, it’s also much closer to the Earth. This means it can obscure the Sun because an object is always bigger when it is closer to us.

An eclipse can be total or partial:

  • When the light source is completely blocked by the eclipsing object, it is called a total eclipse.
  • If the star that eclipses the other one does not completely block its light, it is called a partial eclipse.

Partial eclipses can be distinguished as follows:

  • Simple partial eclipses (for the Sun and Moon): This event occurs when the stars aren’t perfectly aligned, so the eclipsed object is only partially eclipsed.
  • Annular eclipses (for the Sun): the annular eclipse is a particular case of partial eclipse where the three "objects" concerned are perfectly aligned. However, this occurs when the one that eclipses is too small (or the eclipsed object is too big!): there then remains a luminous ring still visible! In this case, the Moon cannot completely eclipse the Sun because it is not close enough to the Earth at the time of the eclipse.
  • Penumbra eclipses (for the Moon): we speak about penumbra eclipses when the Moon passes only in the cone of penumbra of the Earth (and not in the shadow).

Why do we have eclipses?

The Moon's orbit around the Earth is elliptical and inclined to the plane of the Earth's revolution around the Sun (the ecliptic). Most often, the Moon passes above or below the Earth-Sun axis. It sometimes occurs that the lunar star cuts this axis during a New Moon or a Full Moon.

In the first case, our satellite hides the sun from us, causing a solar eclipse; a total, annular or partial eclipse of the Sun. In the second, the Moon passes through the shadow of our planet and disappears momentarily, in whole or in part, creating a lunar eclipse.

What are the astrological effects?

Astrologically, a solar eclipse acts like a powerful New MoonWe therefore experience the notion and vibes of birth and new beginnings. Everything we do on that particular day will be important and will have a great impact on the future (sometimes up to 6 months afterwards). So, if something positive is sown, you can hope that it will amplify in the following days and months... On the contrary, if you argue with someone on that day, there are significant risks that afterwards, the relationship might not last... (All this is to be nuanced according to the aspects of the other planets in the sky on that date).

Astrologically, a lunar eclipse acts as a powerful Full MoonIt therefore acts as a revealing phase, meaning we soon become aware that either we feel good because we have sown good things previously, and we reap the fruits; or we feel bad and in crisis mode. If this happens, you must reposition yourself and adjust to the given situation.


NB:

Be careful, if you are nervous and anxious (which can often happen under the effect of a solar or lunar eclipse), try to channel your aggression and keep a minimum of composure. If not, you’ll only make irreparable mistakes.

April 30: New Moon in Taurus and a partial eclipse of the Sun (at 10 degrees 28)

On April 30, the New Moon in Taurus is also a partial eclipse of the Sun. Linked to Mars and Uranus, it gives us extraordinary energy crowned with an excellent flair for business. This gives us a sense of improvisation and strengthens our ingenious side. It pushes us to act concretely, without fear, nor false excuses to see our various enterprises progress. Thanks to the Venus-Jupiter conjunction present during the eclipse, love is also in the spotlight, with the possibility of fulfilling a wish dear to our hearts...

May 16: Full Moon in Scorpio and Total Eclipse of the Moon (at 25 degrees 18)

On May 16, the Full Moon in Scorpio is also a total eclipse of the Moon. Here, let's take the opportunity to take stock of ourselves and meditate. Let's listen to the messages of our unconscious or the signs of destiny. The Moon being well-connected to Mars, Neptune, and Pluto, we can count on a fertile imagination and on a particularly awakened creativity. Saturn’s square can however slow us down in our emotional impulses and bring us complexes, doubts about the validity of our creations, our works, our desires...

November 25: New Moon in Scorpio and a partial eclipse of the Sun (at 2 degrees)

On October 25, the New Moon in Scorpio is a partial eclipse of the Sun. It is conjunct Venus, trine Mars and square Pluto. On the one hand, Venus and Mars make us want to act to satisfy our passions, to conquer, to live to the full the pleasure that is offered to us. On the other hand, the square to Pluto indicates that we must be careful not to step into a complex situation: to be attracted by a mysterious person, with powerful magnetism but with a dubious life, to start an extramarital relationship, to accept a destructive passion. This New Moon asks us to think carefully and to analyze a relationship with lucidity, to try to understand the intentions of a person before giving our consent.

November 8: Full Moon in Taurus and Total Eclipse of the Moon (at 16 degrees)

On November 8, the Full Moon in Taurus is also a total eclipse of the Moon. Linked to Mercury, Venus and poorly connected to the Uranus-Saturn square which is almost reformed (2 degrees of orb), this Full Moon and eclipse can point out to us a relational dysfunction, give us news concerning a close person (love, friendship, family...), wake up a deep frustration with regard to our individual freedom, bring a disappointment. This can lead to a break-up or a distancing, and then to a new start.
