What Happens During an Eclipse
During a lunar eclipse, the earth is between the moon and the sun which means the moon is not getting the light from the sun. Think of a lunar eclipse as like an uber full moon! Lunar eclipses are always on full moons and they usually indicate endings of some kind in our life.
During a solar eclipse on the other hand, the moon blocks the sun from the earth’s perspective. Astrologically speaking, it’s like an uber new moon because solar eclipses always happen on new moons.
What it means for you
Eclipses often show up as the wild cards to shake up areas in our lives that need shaking up! They often bring about unexpected events and sometimes make us do a 180-degree turn. Though this can be challenging, it is always for our highest good and in order bring us something better and shift us into new levels of consciousness.
By knowing which house the eclipse falls in your chart you can get a better sense of how you will be impacted.
