An Eclipse falls on one of the Planets in my birth chart.
What does this mean for me?
When an eclipse affects one of the planets in your birth chart, this will have a big meaning in your life and definitely needs to be understood.
Remember, eclipses undam dammed up energies, so whether an eclipse’s effects on you are positive or negative will depend on how well you are on course for your meant destiny in life. It is essential to realize that if you are off course, and eclipse will bring downfall, but of course here we hit the issue of phenomenology, because if your life is off course, then you need collapse of that life-style to have any hope of getting your life on-course again.
So, you do need to take into special note is the Eclipse falls on one of your natal planets.
Essentially, we are talking about the Eclipse Moon falling on one of your natal planets, but we also need to consider other key planets from the eclipse chart and also its Nodal axis or Ascendant falling on one of your natal planets.
Here is a simple ‘one size fits all’ meaning for Eclipse impact on one of your natal planets:
