Partial Solar Eclipse- February 15th, 2018

The Partial Solar eclipse on 15 February 2018, occurs with the Sun and Moon in Kumbha Rasi or Aquarius Zodiac sign. This eclipse will be visible only in few countries of South America and almost entire Antarctica. Most of the habitable regions of the world would not be able to view this.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on some parts of the Earth. This partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon�s shadow misses the Earth.

Saturn and Mars will be aspecting this eclipse (Sun+Moon), which complicates things further in general.
Aquarians might suffer from depression, fever, headaches, indigestion, joint paints, inflammatory diseases.
This solar eclipse is good for people born under Moon Signs of Aries, Virgo and Sagittarius. They will experience good health and gain inner strength.
If you are born under Leo Moon sign or Ascendant, then it is time to take care of your health and relationships as the eclipse occurs in the Aquarius-Leo axis.
This solar eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius)
Those who were born between April 15 - 19, August 18 - 22, November 18 - 22 and February 13 - 17 likely to be affected too.
Also those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 25� - 29� degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius need to be careful about the eclipse.
