Eclipsed Full Moons and New Moons are renowned for being epic game-changers. The eerie solar eclipse is an eclipsed New Moon, when the Moon is between the earth and Sun thereby blocking some or all of the light, and has fascinated humanity since ancient times. It was seen as the marriage of the Sun and Moon as the two celestial bodies joined in union or in Chinese philosophy, the dragon devoured the Sun. Always considered a potentially dangerous time, emperors would temporarily abdicate and put an incumbent on the throne during eclipse time and archers were instructed to fire arrows at the eclipse to ward off its potentially ill-effects. The lunar eclipse (eclipsed Full Moon) is when the Earth is between the Sun and Moon which was deemed even more malefic as dark and shadow forces were thought to be released into the world.

In today's astrology, eclipses are still thought to be times of powerful transition, especially for royalty and those in positions of authority. Interestingly, significant events within our royal family have an uncanny resonance with eclipses. Prince Charles and Princess Diana married on one, both Prince William and Kate Middleton were born on one, Princess Diana died on one and Prince Charles married Camilla on one. Our most recent eclipse was 10 January 2020 which coincided with the shockwave announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan stepping down from royal life.
