Eclipses in 2017

Eclipses are astrological events that bring the unexpected in our lives. But then change would be a good thing to expect in life, isn't it!!

This is a list of the solar and lunar eclipses that take place in year 2017. We humans like to live in our comfort zones but once in a while we need a kick in the butt to keep us on our toes. The eclipses act on this and they visit us around four to six times a year, putting us back to action. Eclipses break patterns in our lives and shift our focus. It is best to remain low until the eclipse has gone and the dust settles down before we venture out into action.

Solar Eclipses

During Solar Eclipses the Moon is directly between the Earth and Sun, where the Sun and the Moon are said to be in conjunction. For some time the puny little Moon would have the capability to block out the Sun and turning off the lights on the earth. This might take away our perspectives in life. Solar eclipses are said to take away fixed patterns and push us into unknown realms. Though this might cause upheavals in our life, they are excellent growth promoters.

Lunar Eclipses

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the Sun and the Moon where the luminaries Sun and Moon are said to be in opposition. Then we can see the Earth’s shadow turning the luminous Full Moon intense shades of reds, browns and grays. Lunar eclipses help us to know about our true self and not how we project ourselves to the outside world. Lunar eclipses are great time for self-discovery.
