The first solar eclipse of 2012 tomorrow is hot stuff – and not solely because the sun will look like a ring of fire. Depending upon your birth chart’s aspects, the strength of the upcoming solar eclipse will vary. Regardless of personal aspects, this eclipse brings the life experiences needed to grow and evolve.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, partially or totally obscuring the image of the sun from Earth’s viewers. Metaphysically, eclipses remove what you don’t need from your life. In some cases, the change is dramatic and immediate. Other times, a big transition may not occur until the corresponding lunar eclipse occurs in several weeks (sorry, I said months originally).
Either way, solar eclipses are known for creating new beginnings. Often the change includes a twist or surprise. This celestial event works from the outside in, kicking us from our ruts. Eclipses also assist in overcoming the fear generated with giving up a known pattern while acting as great reminders that we can’t control life.
With all this etheric energy flying around us, news of life-changing events may come your way soon. But don’t jump into action just yet! Consider ideas and transitions carefully before taking action. A week or so after the eclipse is a safe waiting period. Solar eclipses accent the start of new projects and ways of being in the world. Enjoy your ring of fire tomorrow!
