On March 8, 2016, around 6:00 PM Pacific Standard Time, there is a Total Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees of Pisces. It is visible in the southern half of China, Indonesia, Northern Australia, North and South Korea and the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. This is the first of five eclipses that will occur in 2016. It is a Super Moon eclipse, so the energy is intense. “Eclipses occur when the Sun, Moon and Earth align more closely, focalizing a greater concentration of cosmic energies,” says Astrologer Stephanie Austin in the February/March 2016 issue of The Mountain Astrologer.
Where18 degrees of Pisces falls in your chart, some aspect in your life will be ready to be completed or taken to the next level. On March 7, 1989 there was a Solar Eclipse at 17 degrees of Pisces. Think back to that time in your life. Do you remember a big change?
This is a South Node Eclipse. It means that the eclipse is on the South Node of the Moon. It brings in more significant interactions with other people that leaves you with a new perspective. There is a “We” orientation. According to Astrologer Dietrech Pessin, it foretells separation from situations that are no longer working in our lives. A South Node Eclipse brings public exposure. Information is uncovered and facts come out into the open.
This is an 18 South Saros Series Eclipse. This family of eclipses is concerned with endings or separations. “Wherever you have 18 degrees of Pisces in your chart, you may be dealing with a parting,” says Astrologer Bernadette Brady. She states, “The pain of separation is lessened by encountering new situations leading to positive outcomes.”
The Sabian Symbol for 18 degrees of Pisces is the image of a “Gigantic Tent.” Astrologer Marc Edmund Jones says, “It is a genius for organizing divergent capabilities in a common cause.” This speaks to what is going on in America today.
