Lunar Eclipse: What Needs to Go?

What isn’t working in your life? Well, prepare to change it – or watch it change beyond your control. Lunar Eclipses happen to force change in situations that are overdue for change – often in the form of endings. This month’s Lunar Eclipse is in Leo. But first, let’s understand what Lunar Eclipses do in general.

An Eclipse happens when the Earth is exactly in between the Moon and the Sun. The Earth’s shadow covers the Moon, changing its color and then making it momentarily invisible (although you can usually see a glow around its border).


Eclipses cause one or more of the following:

  • A new start. Examples: You may begin a new relationship or take the next step in your existing partnership. You could get a job offer, renew a friendship, or get some sort of do-over. You might totally change your focus in some area of your life.
  • An ending. Examples: Someone could exit your life. You could finally let go of something that no longer serves you. You could leave a job or situation that isn’t working. A legal matter might be resolved. You might clean out clutter.
  • Some other change. The changes that happen during or just after an eclipse are often not what you expect. Bottom line: Eclipses bring changes that are necessary and positive.


On Friday, February 10th, 2017, a Lunar Eclipse occurs in Leo. Here’s how it will affect your sign on the broadest level:

Aries: You have limits. You need to lighten your load by eliminating something that makes you feel bad.

Taurus: Break out of a boring routine and do something more fun and creative.

Gemini: Focus on your friendships and make more time for people who make you happy.

Cancer: A financial matter or issue related to material possessions is highlighted as needing a change.

Leo: Your love life is in the spotlight. A relationship needs attention, or you might meet someone new.

Virgo: A random comment is just that – meaningless. But how you react tells you what needs to change.

Libra: Expand your mind and your physical realm by engaging in foreign cultures, people, food, etc.

Scorpio: Expect a positive work-related change or recognition… some form of newfound respect.

Sagittarius: Your social life becomes busier. You should say yes to any plans with a social element.

Capricorn: You’ll be affected by someone else’s issues. Keep a low profile/don’t take things personally.

Aquarius: What’s one thing you’d like to change about yourself that you really could change? Now’s the time to start trying.

Pisces: It’s time to check off your to-dos and get organized so you’re ready for what new things are coming.
