Solar Eclipse will be March 8th @ 8:54 PM ET and a Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd in Libra @ 8:01 AM ET. This forecast is intended to help you direct your energy in a positive light and take advantage of opportunities that come your way (love, money, career, developing your creativity, or spending more time with your family). Where does your focus lie during this lunar cycle? It has been my experience that the effects of an eclipse cycle last from six months to a year, and in some cases you may begin to feel the impact up to 30 days prior, depending upon how strongly it is impacting your chart.
This information will resonate with you, depending upon the sign that your sun, moon or ascendant are in. For example, if you are an Aries with a Taurus Moon and Leo Ascendant, you should read the forecast for each of those signs. If you are not sure of your ascendant or moon sign please feel free to contact me.
