~ Eclipses ~

Q. Why is the eclipsed Moon a deep orange colour? A. It comes from sunrises and sunsets around the globe, refracted into the earthís shadow, which then fa ll on the moon. Amazing, isnít it?

There was a lunar eclipse very early this morning. You may have seen the full moon a deep orange colour. Eclipses usually come in pairs, a fortnight apart, at six-monthly intervals. The other in this pair is on May 31; the next on November 9 and 23. Several readers have asked if they should postpone travel on the day of an eclipse. If it makes you feel better, then do it; but eclipses arenít necessarily bringers of evil. Far from it. Like most astrological phenomena, eclipses only affect you if they tie in with your birthchart. If the eclipse is on your birthday, for instance, then your life will indeed change, but by no means always for the worse; in my experience, eclipses are usually very positive, though the changes they bring are frequently unexpected. I see them as a push from the powers above to steer us in the direction we need to go, but probably wouldnít take if left to our own inclinations. They are a road junction, if you like, a chance to take a different route. So letís assume youíre bothered by the eclipse, and change your flight. On the new booking, you find yourself next to an attractive stranger, and your life is changed forever. Chance? Of course. Eclipse? Well, Iíd say so, but then Iím an astrologer. The eclipse gives you the opportunity Ė but what you do with it is up to you.
