A powerful Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Pisces on February 26, 2017, pulls the wool over our eyes as it joins confusing Neptune. We may be at the start of a new emotional cycle, yet our view of reality will likely go through several iterations of change before clarity returns. It may take a while to sort out the facts surrounding our experiences, but it’s nearly impossible to avoid the shock of awakening to the truth.
Warrior Mars hooks up with revolutionary Uranus during this eclipse, reactivating the long-lasting Uranus-Pluto square that reveals new information, agitates social unrest, and demands personal involvement. Integrating unexpected events also presents challenges, because this Solar Eclipse forms stressful aspects to Mars, Uranus, and Pluto. Instead of giving up and slipping into denial, it’s healthier to keep coming back to the facts. A bit of discomfort is a small price to pay for staying in touch with reality.

:: Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Surprise repairs or other unplanned expenses can turn your finances upside down. A perplexing Pisces New Moon Eclipse upsets your 2nd House of Money and may be somewhat hazardous to your checkbook.
