The April 25th Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio will impact each of us in a different way, depending upon what area of your astrology chart it happens to fall in. For those of you who are new to astrology lingo, it may be helpful for you to know that your astrology chart is divided into 12 houses and each house pertains to a different area of your life.
Now, if this is more information then you feel you need, all you have to do is read about your particular Sun sign and you’ll have the gist of what I mean.
Keep in mind that the effects of an eclipse can be felt up to 30 days prior to the actual event. It is not just the exact day of the eclipse that is important. We can also feel the impact of the eclipse up to a year following the event.
Also remember that the Lunar Eclipse, which is a full moon, is a time when emotions tend to run very high and people tend to overreact. So you might want to try to keep a clear head and steer clear of any volatile situations.
As I explain in my book, “An Astrologer’s Journey,” understanding and working with the lunar cycle, especially the eclipses, can make your journey through life a lot more enjoyable.
