Solar Eclipse February 26 2017
February 26 2017
The New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in the intuitive and watery sign of Pisces on February 26th. Pisces energy is all about inner reflection, intuition and higher consciousness. This is a wonderful energy that will join us for the months ahead, making it a perfect time to think about your spirituality and the deeper meaning behind your life.
This Solar Eclipse is the first of the year and is going to set the tone and energy for the months ahead. In fact, whatever energy transpires on this Eclipse is likely to create a theme that will last until the next Solar Eclipse on August 21st. Solar Eclipses are all about new beginnings. Whatever emotions or events were stirred earlier this month are likely to melt away and shift in a new direction as February draws to a close.
This Eclipse is dominated by the spiritual planet Neptune in Pisces. It can bring hope of a brighter future. Good fortune and lasting happiness come from the stars in this region of the sky. Sun conjunct Neptune increases our sensitivity, intuition and empathy. There is great difficulty holding onto the ego. Boundaries between ourselves and others can dissolve. It is good to set some boundaries in your close relationships to avoid any manipulation or deceit. This is especially important for people with health issues to do with immunity and people who are prone to addiction and escapism. Moon conjunct Neptune increases your emotionally sensitivity. With conscious self-awareness provided by the Sun, you can filter out any background noise and use your sensitivity for good.
Mars conjunct Uranus makes these minor aspects even more like squares. This increases the danger of over reaction, rebellion and greed spoiling the other benefits from the Neptune eclipse. This aspect makes freedom fighters and activists. It will campaign for liberation in all forms, but probably mostly in the area of sexuality. Neptune shows how we rise above physical limitations. Spiritual development involves feeling more at one with people around you and with life in general. There is something scary about stepping into the unknown but the positive side of Neptune will be more noticeable following this solar eclipse.
This eclipse has the potential to be extremely euphoric and inspiring. It really depends on what you make of it. This kind of energy doesn’t do well in idle hands! Pick up a guitar, paintbrush or keyboard and get creative
