The most important eclipse in history occurs today.

Okay, I’m exaggerating. Eclipses are actually quite common, astrologically speaking. Although a solar eclipse takes on added importance, it’s really just a deluxe new moon. Unless the degree where the eclipse occurs is personalized in your chart, it’s really not a big deal. Anyone who tells you otherwise is practicing bad astrology.

This eclipse occurs at 10°38″ in Cancer. For someone like me with a lot of cardinal points highlighted in my own chart, this meeting of the sun and moon is unusually distant from those specific degrees. So, I’m not going to pretend to believe that this is significant event for me personally. I will treat it as any other ninth-house new moon, which means that I should pay attention to the opportunities that are all around me. I should take off my reading glasses and take in a more-expansive view. I need to be farsighted rather than nearsighted for a while.

Maybe the degree where the eclipse occurs has special significance for you. In that case, you’ll likely need a strategy of your own to deal with it, depending upon the points or planets that make that degree significant. If you’re not sure what I mean, perhaps you should visit a professional astrologer and pay them to take a look at your chart.

Or you can just keep following those astrologers on Twitter who claim that every eclipse is the most important eclipse in history . . . when you’re finished staring directly into the sun, that is.
