This is the energy shift we have been all waiting for, after a very long year of intense planetary energy, a year dating back to 2017.
The solar eclipse will take place Thursday, the 15th of February during the evening in the Western hemisphere and therefore will not be seen. However, the eclipse will be visible in South America and Australia, though it will only be a partial solar eclipse.
The New Moon occurs with a solar eclipse and with the New Moon on the 16th, the celebrations begin for the Chinese New Year, The Year of the Earth Dog. The Dog Year will support the underdog as more people will want to have their voices heard to promote changes which are needing to happen in our world. The truth is out there but unfortunately, it's not always the case at government levels.
This is an important time to let go of those intense and blocked energies which certainly seemed to be the recurring theme of 2017 up until now.
Now is the time now for a reset, as the Planets finally break out of the wedge that they have been in since the August eclipses which has brought much extremity into our lives. It's time to let go and let it flow!
The flow may not happen overnight (though this may occur for some), as the aftermath of eclipses often triggers our emotions, especially when Mercury is involved. Moon signifies emotions while the Sun signifies our soul.
Therefore, you may feel some anxiety hovering or escalating around you. However, this will not be long-lasting, for this is the end of a long emotional cycle which has clobbered many of us. It's a very good time to review your chart if you haven't done so in a while.
This is a great time to press the reset button, to step out of the box.
Make a list of what you wish to manifest for yourself, make a New Year’s Resolution.
Happy Dog Year!
