Solar Eclipse 8 March 2016 Growing Pains

Solar Eclipse March 2016 AstrologyThe solar eclipse on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at 18°55′ Pisces falls in Pisces decan 2. The solar eclipse astrology focuses on the healing of a deep wound in your soul, represented by Chiron alongside the solar eclipse. It may be an old or new wound affecting your body, mind or spirit. Growing pains due to challenging aspect from Jupiter and Saturn are relieved by the recuperative and evolving power of Pluto. Freedom from pain allows for a spiritual transformation, the evolution of your soul.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

Like any new moon, a solar eclipse represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. The strongest and most important aspect in all of astrology is the Sun conjunct Moon. It means that all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future.

Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start and start writing down a to-do list on a blank sheet of paper. The impulsive and enthusiastic nature of a solar eclipse means that not all new projects will succeed, however a solar eclipse in not only one point in time.

The horoscope for a new moon or solar eclipse is like a snap shot in time, but like old style photography, it takes time to develop. This solar eclipse will remain active until the next solar eclipse in September 2016. As the eclipse cycle progresses, planetary aspects to the eclipse degree will mark more active times when events relating to the eclipse will likely unfold. The strongest of these  being Mercury on the eclipse degree on March 15 and Venus on March 27.

Solar Eclipse March 2016 Astrology

The March 8 solar eclipse degree of 18°56′ Pisces contains no major fixed stars or asteroids. Astrological interpretation therefore relies on planetary aspects but this area of the sky does contain some small fixed stars in the water steam at the end of Aquarius Constellation.

A solar eclipse in Constellation Aquarius suggests events connected to aviation, flooding of rivers and its impact on agriculture. Revolution and war will continue but with a greater focus on new directions and humanitarian organizations. Another small star in this area of the sky between Constellations Aquarius and Pisces is π Pegasi on the Hoof of the Flying Horse.

I have written about the Astrological Ages and suggested we are in the Age of Pegasus. An era of climate change and rising oceans, carrying us from the Age of Pisces to the watery Age of Aquarius.

Solar eclipse conjunct Chiron gives the strongest indication of what your new goals or new focus for the next six months is about. To the Greeks, Chiron was the wise Centaur who brought astrology to humanity. To Christians he is Jesus Christ who counted the number of the stars and called names to all of them. Both were healers of wounded souls who used natural methods like hands on healing, herbs and the power of the mind.

Think of all the healing techniques you can that start with the word chiro, the Greek word for hands. Even palm reading is termed chiromancy. Chiron was not part of the establishment and he mingled with other outcasts. He was seen as maverick who used unorthodox methods to heal others and promote spiritual enlightenment.

The major theme of solar eclipse March 2016 therefore relates to a deep wound in your soul. This could be some existing physical or emotional pain, but may also indicate a new wound received following this eclipse. Other aspects in the solar eclipse March 2016 astrology chart and the lunar eclipse in two weeks time will give more detail about the nature of your wound and the healing process.

Both Chiron and Constellation Aquarius have the new age feel about them. The wounding/healing may manifest physically or emotionally but will involve a spiritual component, especially during healing. Your new start or new goals may involve natural or alternative methods but also new breakthroughs in science and technology. Air travel and the Internet have a part to play in both wounding through the spread of disease, and healing through information sharing.

Your wounding and healing journey could be in response to dramatic changes in global weather which are affecting our bodies and souls in way we cannot even image. The story of Chiron will be further understood in relation to the transition of healing from medicine, to hands, to the mind and ultimately to purely spiritual healing.

Solar Eclipse March 2016 Astrology

Solar Eclipse March 2016 Astrology

Solar eclipse opposite Jupiter means there are forces acting against your growth, prosperity and happiness. The influence of Chiron suggest health issues impeding your growth and happiness. An old wound that has been pushed inside would now manifest as unhappiness, selfishness, exaggerated pride or gluttony with food or drugs.

Unethical or immoral behavior will not be rewarded. Moderation, self-control and self-discipline will help you avoid the over optimistic and excessive nature of Jupiter. Try not to take on too much or push yourself too hard because of a tendency to over-estimate your resources and abilities.

Solar eclipse square Saturn frustrates and delays the achievement of your solar eclipse goals through setbacks, separations or loss. Fear and pessimism can lead to a defeatist attitude and melancholy. There will be a tendency to evade responsibility and give up on your goals. Saturn may indicate that your wound stems from guilt and resulting self-abuse. This would indicate the karmic repercussions of inflicting a wound on another person.

Any Jupiter unethical or immoral behavior will now be punished. If your own wound stems from guilt about hurting someone else or being disloyal, then forgiveness is critical to healing your wound. Forgive yourself but also importantly forgive anyone who has hurt you. Forgive even the person who you have harmed because they must have done something to deserve it. This aspect requires hard work, patience and discipline.

Jupiter square Saturn can limit your growth and represents the struggle to heal. Conflicting urges to move ahead or stay safe and secures leads to inner tension and stress. Disappointment and delays make it that much harder to focus on the original solar eclipse goals of healing your wounds. It tips the balance of Chiron’s wounding/healing theme to the wounding side.

Solar eclipse sextile Pluto comes to the rescue as it increases your need to succeed. You will feel more determined and purposeful than usual to achieve your goals. Any obsessive or compulsive tendencies you have can actually be harnessed to get a difficult task done. This aspect also gives tremendous healing and recuperative powers which can be used to overcome the negative influence of Jupiter and Saturn.

This aspect also describes the result of your healing process, which is the evolution of your soul. The reduction of pain allows you to soar higher at the spiritual level. A rapid leap in spiritual development can actually cause physical pain as your higher self jumps ahead but leaves your physical body behind. The resulting growing pains will then need to be healing through those methods associated with Chiron.

Jupiter trine Pluto means large-scale growth and transformation due to a staggering increase in power and influence. This is one aspect that can really combat the limiting and depressing influence of Saturn. It compensates for any defeatism or lack of faith, and ensures higher moral and ethical standards. Powerful forces keep you striving ahead, and the wounding/healing balance of Chiron tips back to the healing side.

Uranus square Pluto is behind the solar eclipse, the radical, wide-ranging change over the last five years. The routine and structures in your life may have changed abruptly, requiring flexibility and a broad view to help you adapt. Old structures and routines became outdated, as children arrived, or grown up children left home. Your parents may have needed more care, or have pass away. Whatever the circumstances, they have forced you to evolve, and evolve rapidly.

Saturn trine Uranus is ahead of the solar eclipse, another transition phase in your life over the next year. This is the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic as it sometimes can. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically. You may be given more responsibility but also be allowed enough freedom to tackle the work in your own way.

March 2016 Solar Eclipse Summary

The March 8 solar eclipse shows you and your goals for the next six months. Chiron shows a wound in your mind, body or soul; an illness, disease or injury at the physical, psychological or spiritual level. It could be an existing wound from this life or a previous one, or it may come during the eclipse phase. With wounding comes healing, in some cultures there is only one word to describe both.

Jupiter shows how you need to take it easy. Don’t overdo things or take on too much, give yourself the time to heal. Saturn shows the struggle, pain and fear involved. Be patient, self-disciplined and take responsibility. Forgive yourself and others.

Pluto shows your powerful will to succeed and gives recuperative and healing powers. Growing pains come through the healing process or as your spirit leaps ahead of your body. The healing of your wound leads to a spiritual transformation and the evolution of your soul.

Chiron’s golden rule has been broken but it is easy to fix. Treat others like you want to be treated, with respect!

If this eclipse directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about its effect in your 2016 horoscope and monthly horoscope. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart see Sun Transits.

    • No, probably just more than your average news stories in the next 6 months about airline crashes, or perhaps some big development in airplane design or even those new ones that go really really fast between counties.

  1. I have my Chiron in Pisces at 18.19 Degrees. I have a few old wounds! Not sure how this works or will play out in my life! Would Love to know more. I have had a really shit past few years!

    • Hi Terry, you have just completed you Chiron return. It does station retrograde in July 2016 at 25°15′ Pisces but goes back only to about 20°30′ Pisces in December 2016.

      • Thank you Jamie, I just wish I knew what this all meant! I need a break so badly! I would love a reading but cannot afford it right now. Gemini Sun-Deacon 2, Taurus Asc-Deacon 3, Taurus Moon at 3 Deg. I know something is coming or going to happen but not sure what. 😉

        • Jamie, By the way I have been following you for 2 years now! Thank you for all your great work! I love reading your posts! xx

        • Good to hear from you Terry. I’m not doing readings this year but can tell you your intuition is good and you are anticipating a positive future with Uranus sextile your Sun. See your Gemini decan 2 horoscope. How this eclipse affects your decan will be covered in the March horoscopes. I just wanted to get this solar eclipse article out early.

          • Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That is all I needed to hear! I knew it! I think I might be Psychic! 😉 Or I am just learning from all my reading your posts! Mwahh! xxxx

  2. Awesome post Jaime! I always appreciate your astrological interpretations and the emphasis on karmic/spiritual/global evolution. Especially with your straightforward and simplistic approach. You are doing amazing things in the astrological world!

  3. thanks Jamie, a lot to look forward to!
    All this is conjunct natal moon in 8H, so more deep healing ,an old adage is “all healing takes place at the source of the wound this solar eclipse presents to me anyway just such an opportunity. If I/we approach this with courage and only a mustard seed of faith great transformation not only will occur but great healing will surely follow!
    Courage i have in spades _- Aries, patience and discipline been sorely lacking , but now I see Saturn as the brakes the moderator the ally I have always need but rebelled against .and thus the helpmate of Pluto the powerful transformer re-generator .aagh the wonderful advantages of cronehood!!!

    cheers mate
    Maggie

      • aww thanks Jamie…your comment is quite spooky in away … I have done some damn hard, hard work and been to hell and am now back !!
        I am almost ready to begin my magnum opus …they say write about what you know and all I know is nursing all areas from neonates to the very old … but I do love our elderly…honour the ancestors I say….even if they are difficult and and can appear to be devolving …and a bit rigid… there’s gold in them there oldies …!

        with Nep and NN in 4H in Scorp that is a big gig right there ( honour the drunken sailor one possibility!)… but our birth charts or as a like to call them “our sacred documents ” will show us the way if we approach it with respect and a little humility….. the answers are there when we learn to wrestle the beast fearlessly …and folks like you are very generous with your wisdom and to me it helps sort out the dross from the coal…so again many thanks ….

        “way with words ‘ might that have some to do with Merc conjunct MH with Uranus up his jacksi!!
        So do I re,main the ‘chatting machine ” annoying or amusing everyone ..or have I done enough work to become the “great orator” and write that damn play and be a voice for our elderly who in our country and globally in the west anyway are being seen as economic units and burdens … so Jamie watch this space … and I did mean what I said about Saturn …we shall be allies this second time round cos i need discipline and routine…yikes!!

        One more thing I love reading the other comments I have no way of knowing the ages of these peeps but there questions to you show me they are possibly young ..ish… At the same time I just know they are well on there way and they must begin to believe that he answers they seek are already inside them …I love the way your are very supportive of them while they begin to trust themselves now that is your gift to them and me …a fine and generous man you are Jamie … heartfelt thanks and much love Mags

        ps play working title ….”Carrying Corpses”… its going to be wild …!!!!!!!

        • Excellent, I spent a number of years working in nursing homes, mainly dementia wards. Absolute gold background for learning about astrology too. The age group commenting here is everything. A bit of a spike for 25 to 34 but otherwise fairly spread out.

  4. Wow,the Eclipse is conjunct natal Mercury 19 degrees Pisces. What are your thoughts, Jamie ?

    • My thoughts are that your thoughts are going to come in for some scrutiny. Maybe some criticism from Saturn testing your Jupiter faith in your own values and belief. While Mercury is your basic mental processing, Jupiter is your higher thought. So it might be difficult to separate the two. For example, lack of Mercury concentration will direct affect your Jupiter studies. In the end though, it all work out well with Pluto leading to a positive transformation of your though processes. Plus, the same applies to other Mercury things like siblings, kids, transport, mail etc.

  5. thanks dear Jaime! wonderful job as usual
    I want to ask you how would this eclipse affect me
    it will exactly conjunct my natal Jupiter 18 Pisces ruler of my 5th house in my 8th house
    square my natal Uranus ruler of my natal 7th house in my 5th house
    I guess it will involve my relationship in particular

    • Look forward to a happy six months ahead Lulya! The last solar eclipse was on my 19 Virgo Jupiter and I have been happier and more contended than ever before, and my business has grown amazingly.

  6. I have this one almost exactly on my natal Jupiter at 19.36 Pisces in 2nd house. It’s also sextile my AC-Sun-Mercury conjunction at 22 Cap.What could this one be about located in my natal 2nd and conjunct my natal Jupiter?
    I’m CAp with Cap rising….
    Despite all this good reviews for Cap decan 3 horoscope in February and March I’m having a really bad time
    concerning my work and love life… I wish better days would finally come..

    • I’m sure better things will come with this eclipse Burka. The previous eclipse in September 2015 was opposite your Jupiter so you can expect the March 2016 solar eclipse to bring better fortune. Even better with that natal sextile to your Ascendant. See my answer above to Lulya.

  7. This solar eclipse is conjunct my boyfriend’s descendant (and trine his Uranus and square his Neptune). Good or bad for us, your guess? I’m wondering bc I’m stepping back to see if he steps forward. Ironically the lunar eclipse in September is conj my descendant and conjunct his sun.. Any correlation?

    • Oh yes Nova, everything is linked. I would expect the trine to Uranus to compensate for any negatives from the square to Neptune, unless there was a big difference in orbs.

  8. Is the September 2015 solar eclipse or lunar eclipse linked to March 2016’s solar eclipse?

    • Yes, the September 2015 solar eclipse was 20°10′ Virgo.
      The March 2016 solar eclipse is opposite at 18°56′ Pisces.

    • Not like with the other ones but all eclipse are linked to certain others in a Saros Series which you will have to Google to learn more about.

  9. Hi Jamie, first of all thanks for all your prompt replies. This eclipse is exact opposite my Mars(18’55”) in Virgo, trine my Jupiter in Cancer at 19’20”, trine my Sun in Cancer(24’13”).and square Neptune at 15’59 Sag. Overall, how will things turn out for me. Will my efforts yield results ? Thanks again..

    • Hi Dana, I would just include your Mars and Jupiter because of the orbs. Initially frustrating but working out just fine I expect. You can look up Sun trine Jupiter transit for example. Sun trine Mars is one of the few Sun transits I haven’t done yet. You will also have to take into account your other transits like Jupiter on Mars or Saturn on Neptune if they are very close by orb. I use one degree orb for such transits, more for eclipses.

      • Jamie, thanks again. I found out that Jupiter will be at 18’18”, so that means Jupiter conjunct my mars and Saturn is 16’09”, Saturn conjuncts my Neptune too….

        Hmm..Saturn conjunct Neptune looks scary 🙁 What do you think, for ones love life? I am currently single..

        • Yes, from memory it was a dark time but nothing serious actually happened, more of a mood or attitude. Hopefully Jupiter on your Mars will attract someone special for you. Don’t let your Mars Saturn conjunction hide your sexy side.

  10. Dear Jamie, Neptune exits his shadow-phase within minutes of the new moon, I believe. A degree before squaring natal Mars/trining natal Sun. I am hoping for new clarity with this eclipse on my natal Chiron, square natal Black Moon Lilith. Jupiter trines natal Jupiter early that morning, within hours of Sun Sextile natal Jupiter. Mercury conjoins natal Saturn and Sun will trine Cancer Mercury on the day before.
    Transiting Chiron on the South Moon Node squares natal Venus, having to do with letting go.
    Lilith has been contacted by a moon and I’m spoiled to be attached and sitting with the pain of releasing beautiful love I could never expect to keep, characterized by the Venus Mars conjunction of August 31st square natal Neptune. Oxytocin poisoning. Your observations most appreciated.

  11. Worried about this eclipse. It is conjunct my sun in the eighth house opposite Jupiter and trine my natal Neptune in the 4th house. Also Uranus is nearly conjunct my natal Jupiter (exact in may) which I know can cause inflammation the other way around. I just got sick yesterday and my doctor sent me for tests. On the other hand I have been paying off my debts for the last six months and should clear them by about this time. I was planning to continue evening work until September to cement my financial stability.

  12. Hi Jamie, I’ve also been a little worried about this one. My Moon is at 20º49′ Pisces in my 6th house. I’ve been reading that an important feminine figure in my life could be “eclipsed”. Or that I could get ill, or pass away. That this will be about loss or leaving the body. Well, the fact is 19 years ago, when I was totally unaware of the astrological impact of eclipses, this very same Solar Eclipse happened in the same degree of Pisces, right next to my Moon. And a few weeks later my grandmother passed away. She was a very old lady by then. So I find myself worrying: will it be my mother now? me? Although I’m entering my forties, I feel like I just got here 🙂 So I wanted to ask you, Jamie, what are the possible effects of a natal Moon being eclipsed? Thank you, and take care *

    • Hi Alexandra. It might be worth comparing the outer planet transits you have now and had back then. For example, a hard aspect from an outer planet may have accompanied the eclipse 19 years ago. Whatever the case, you may expect some similar influences though, but I’m appalled you read anything from an astrologer suggesting illness or death.

  13. What might my financial outlook be like for march? As a just-divorced mom of a 6 year old and an almost 2 year old dog, I am very, very concerned. I have been unemployed for the last year. The main source of income just moved out and will not be returning. I do not have much family/friends left to rely on, if at all, until I can secure another job. I am very scared about losing my home and my son due to lack of funds. My sun is in aquarius 15°21′ and my moon is in aquarius 15°59′. My jupiter is in Libra 10°12′ and my 6th house is in Scorpio 22°15′ or so I’ve been told.

  14. Hi Jamie

    I hope you can help me, I read your yearly horoscope for Aries for 2016 and I cant believe how relevant it is for me. more so the deacon 1. My Birthday is 31st March 1986.

    I am currently going through my Saturn return and it is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. I am really worried about Saturn going retrograde on the 25th of March, and then in April my ruling planet mars goes retrograde too.

    I met someone on the day my Saturn return started and the day their Saturn return ended (November 2015) while ashamed to say during a 10 year relationship, it really has through my life in a spin and I am at a major crossroads. Can you advise me on how to handle a Saturn return turning retrograde when so much other major transits are happening around the same time in my sign?

  15. I think it’s interesting that during this time period Pholus and the Galactic Center are conjunct. The exact conjunction took place on February 3, 2016 at 27Sag4. On March 8, 2016 Pholus will be at 27Sag49 conjunct the Galactic Center at 27Sag5.

    from Zane Stein’s site:
    What does the G.C. indicate? Phil talks a little about that in an article on his website: http://www.philipsedgwick.com/Galactic/GalacticCtr.htm
    I’d like to quote a bit of his writings on the GC:

    “the Galactic Center surges like a Roman candle of infrared energy. Emanations of infrared energy (IFR) blast down upon us and perform two primary functions on our awareness.

    “First, IFR opens up the subconscious mind. This opening asks us to release and forget emotional trauma. Of course, this also means relinquishing your greatest emotional grievances. Perhaps this contributes largely to the popular metaphysical model of cellular reprogramming. Second, IFR blasts open the root chakra in the energy system. This chakra releases the old, regenerates our energy, and lifts us off our duffs with renewed inspiration and a sense of real progress.”

    AND

    “The Galactic Center acts like a satellite dish, directing divinely inspired information straight to the potentially receptive gray matter of our brains. If you believe in God, this might be the voice you hear. Regardless, within this connection you have the ability to pull down wild information which you would otherwise have no way of knowing.”

    In his book Phil writes that when an individual ignores this transpersonal link he can experience stress and confusion, but when the link is consciously utilized the individual can grasp information that they may seem to have no outward way of knowing.

    Pretty heavy stuff, isn’t it?

    from WakAnimaLuna site:
    Pholus is:
    – the small start of a major event (like the butterfly and the huricane)
    – a turning point (like the first domino stone in a range)
    – a situation involving three generations at the time (grandparents, parents, children)
    – curing addictions
    – something happens that you can’t get a hold on and that is escalating (like the first stone in a revolution)
    – the catalyst (something that triggers a lot of events)
    –quote by WakAnimaLuna

    So, if Pholus is a catalyst and the Galactic Center is this hugely powerful infrared energy, I think something major is going on. This is significant for me, as my Mars is at 27Tau58 inconjunct this conjunction. As you can no doubt surmise, I’ve been strongly affected by this energy!!!

    Oh! I would also like to mention that on March 8, 2016, Varuna will be at 27Can18Rx inconjunct the conjunction of Pholus and the Galactic Center. Varuna supports our return to natural law and the sacredness of life. So, with the inconjunct, that would mean some adjustments need to be made to help us return to a more sane and sustainable way of life.

      • Melanie Reinhart has a long on-line article on the Centaurs and the Galactic Center at http://www.melaniereinhart.com. Here is a small excerpt:

        “The word ‘galaxy’ comes from the same root as the word for ‘milk’ or ‘milky’ [Greek: galaxias], and our home galaxy is called the Milky Way. Its origin is portrayed in the story of Hercules, the son of Zeus and famously hated by Hera who was the first wife of Zeus, but not the mother of Hercules. His name ‘Herakles’ is an ironical one, meaning ‘the glory of Hera’. Zeus is said to have put Hercules to Hera’s breast while she was asleep, so that the baby Hercules could be assured of immortality by drinking her milk. Hera awoke to find a suckling baby, not her own, at her breast. She withdrew her nipple, causing her milk to spray into the sky.

        “In this poignant story, we have a hint about the meaning of the ‘Galactic Centre’ … that which we seek, externally, to confirm our ‘immortality’, and from which we must be weaned in order that the natural inner connection with our own Deeper Self may be nourished by a ‘higher voltage’ energy. Hera’s milk streams across the sky, forming the galaxy, the ‘Milky Way’ – symbolising our own ‘way through the stars’.

        “When the Galactic Centre is activated, Hera’s breast is withdrawn, metaphorically speaking. Meaning that the places, people, ideas, notions and events in our life where we have previously projected our own sense of ‘Higher Self’, or ‘Deeper Centre’ may collapse, let us down, crumble, or simply quietly depart. Our ‘tribal’ associations, national or racial identities, while valuable, are relinquished, not permitted to hold us back. Through these transitions or crises, our consciousness develops. This may require a great deal of psychological processing, coming to terms with things, allowing grief and confusion to give way to peace and clarity. Our physical bodies and subtle bodies too may need attention as toxins both emotional and environmental begin to be eliminated.”

        • Also… there’s an article at http://www.astro.com, on the home page, about the Galactic Center:

          Whistleblowers at the Galactic Centre
          by Mandi Lockley
          © Mandi Lockley – first published by The Astrological Journal, 2016 / The Astrological Association of Great Britain / 01.03.2016

          “At the heart of our galaxy, the Milky Way, is the Galactic Centre – a super-massive black hole (or a “giant cosmic broom”) positioned in late Sagittarius – which plays a key role in chart signatures of people who spill the beans on organisations and governments, as many famous cases attest”

  16. Hi, I am from march 7, one day before the eclipse, and I will be traveling by air during the solar eclipse back home after celebrate my 50 birthday. Just curiosity any other tip.

    • Happy birthday! Uranus rules air travel and accidents and it makes no transits to your chart. Nothing to worry about!

  17. This eclipse falls exactly on my birthday … I read on some sites that something bad will happen ..

    • Hi Mary, sorry you have come across some bad astrologers. This is out dated superstition. We now know that the Sun will reappear after the eclipse. See your monthly horoscope for more info.

  18. After a 15yr hiatus from astrological studies which i planned to resume this year… I just found out about the upcoming eclipses and suddenly I’m doing a crash course in order to chime in to them. I’m a Virgo/Pisces with Pisces Ascendant, Moon, Chiron, Saturn and Virgo Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Pluto. What’s closest to 18/19 degrees in my chart are Moon, Mercury, & Chiron. I’m feeling anxious because I’ve been on a cycle of loss for way too many years and am still feeling fragile with recovery & regaining strength. sigh. What wisdom might you offer me as i journey through this year’s eclipse events ? (beyond the ‘dont panic it will be alright’). Thank you kindly, Nicole

    • Take a look at the September 2015 solar eclipse because it was opposite this one. I would expect a similar theme as the last six months but with you now expressing your stellium through intuitive writings or words about Chiron astrology.

      • Thank you for taking the time to respond 🙂 I believe the September 2015 solar eclipse was about a ‘surprising/shocking to me’ health issue which results were made known to me a couple weeks after the bloodwork of 9/10 which showed hi blood sugar. I was able to set right that right within 3 months. I was also suffering from asthma due to three enormous wildfires that hit this county in aug/sept – one of which went through my place 6 weeks earlier and the third one actually started on Sept 12 (but did not impact my property). Not sure what to expect this time around… health is doing good. Tarot work needs to be updated but was certainly showing a drama card by equinox… which is what got me to look at my astrology.

        • You know astrology and the Tarot can be closely related. One psychic I used to visit used both techniques but really relied more on the Tarot. It’s definitely better suited to intuitive astrologers.

          • I agree, Jamie ! I actually did study them both side by side years ago and learned a lot more about astrology than i think i would have otherwise. I’d like to return to that study method… when and if I stop being bombarded by difficult transits year after year throwing my intuitive skills out the window. sheesh. lol

            • I know the feeling. Over the last few years I have stopped doing monthly horoscopes for a few months here and there.

  19. Hi Jamie! The solar eclipse will be flat on my solar return. I am Pisces (Cancer ASC conj. Sirius by half a degree). My question: I have read that one should wait with launching new projects directly before and after an eclipse. I tend to go with the flow, anyway, no matter what, however: does this apply, generally? Working on a new blog project. It looks like it will be ready to launch around this time.

    • Hi Dana, I agree with you about going with the flow. But generally new projects are best started following a beneficial solar eclipse or new moon.

  20. Hi Jamie, I have been told that This Solar eclipse on March 8th at 18 degrees Pisces is triggering a Grand Fire Trine in my chart between Saturn/Sagittarius in 7th/Aires /Mars in 10 and Leo in the 2nd ( I am a Cancer rising, Virgo sun 18degrees). I don’t know what this means

      • September 11th/1957 at 1:13am born in New York, you’ll see there is a grand trine, with a kite at the bottom. I am so grateful to you for responding.

        • Not this eclipse but the lunar eclipse today at 3 Libra, close to your Jupiter at 6 Libra which is the reaction point of your kite. Yes you have a grand trine with Jupiter turning it into a kite. Best info I have found is in Major Configurations. The author has a kite.

          • Thank you Jamie. It is so generous of you to respond to people and I have learned a lot by reading the posts.

        • Hi Jamie, I read your forecast for Cancer 2nd Decan and feel better. I’ve always mostly read for my rising sign even though i have 4 planets in Virgo and this Eclipse is DIRECTLY opposite my Sun at 18 degrees Virgo. I am wondering whether my 3rd House will be enhanced or disrupted by this eclipse.
          Thank you.

  21. Actually, I think it doesn’t trigger the trine but is just opposite my sun. so confusing to me.

  22. Dear Jamie
    What a great post! Thank you for your work!
    It will be so interesting.
    Although eclipse is not directly affecting me (only sextiles my Pallas) the Eclipse degree will play its part around me!
    My mother’s Sun is 18 Pisces.
    mMy partner’s Imum Coeli is 19 Pisces…Opposite his Mercury and Mars .i expect big changes. And I want changes.
    My father has Saturn 18 Pisces in 6th house square Chiron in Sag – he had surgery just today 1 march (gall bladder) after several pain attacs before last full moon.

    • Wow Alice, it really does impact on your life then. I always say this about daily transits even if it does not affect your chart chances are that someone around you will feel it and affect you in some way.

  23. Hi Jamie! So love your insight…you rock! I am a little concerned about the upcoming eclipse/season. My chart ruler Mercury is at 18degrees Pisces in the 7th opposite Pluto at 22degrees in Virgo and semi sextile Saturn in the 8th. My Chiron is cazimi my sun in the 8th at 3degrees Aries opposite Jupiter and Uranus in the second in Libra. Seems like a lot of my natal chart is going to get hit over the next month. I’ve been trying to get over a very deep and life changing relationship that finally ended last December after 6 years of on and off. Could I expect these wounds to finally come to heal? Or that they will be retriggered?

    • Hi Linnea, i would think that a solar eclipse conjunct your Mercury has to be much better than the previous eclipse opposite your Mercury. Yes you have the opposition to Pluto but 4 degrees is not that strong for an outer planet orb. maybe a similar theme carries over but much brighter. The March 23 lunar eclipse at 3 Libra seems more significant for your relationship issues. This one will be more powerful than the previous one at 5 Libra because of the orb. Again, similar themes but it is difficult to fathom because either the Sun or Moon is on your Sun both lunar eclipses. best of luck anyway and than you for your kind words.

  24. SUN in CANCER 10 july born (18 degree)=CANCER DECAN 2
    ASC in Aries 4:08 degree =ARIES DECAN 1
    MOON in PICESS 7:40 Degree =PISCES DECAN 1

    hey dear Jamie will i feel this eclipse and luner eclipse in march 2016 ??is it good or really bad for me … i already having so much bad time and loneless in my life :(i guess i feel eclipse energy before a month 🙁

    will it will effects all cardinal signs ???ill have satrun 15 degree and mars in 17 degree close cunj in my 7 house libra too???

    • The solar eclipse is well aspected to your Sun, so read Sun trine Sun transit. No major aspect to your Mars-Saturn.

      The lunar eclipse on your Descendant is also strong. The September 2015 lunar eclipse was conjunct your Ascendant, so a similar theme but more emphasis on partners and enemies. No major aspect to your Moon.

      • THANKS JAMIE DEAR … can u xplain little bit more how The lunar eclipse effects on my Descendant???as i already feel painful circumstances from last month in relationship 🙁

        • It means you should feel more emotional about close relationships. Descendant rules one to one relationships, marriage, but also open enemies.

  25. Eclipse is opposite natal Saturn in Virgo, square natal moon and Neptune in Sag.it is also trine natal Uranus in Scorpio.

    • Hi Jalila. Thanks god for Uranus giving you some higher awareness about that very difficult Saturn aspect.

  26. Thankyou Jamie
    I wonder if you can comment?
    I am a little aphrenhensive about preparing for the next solar eclipse.it falls directly on my (end of 4th house) Mars 19 Pisces conjunct Venus 21 Pisces ( and also trines natal Uranus 16 Cancer and squares natal Neptune 23 Libra and by association natal Saturn 27 Libra.) My natal MC is at 21 Leo conjunct MC Pluto 22 Leo is inconjunct and my progressed MC is on 22 Virgo with Jupiter, opposing the eclipse. Pluto transiting Capricorn in my third house is and has been conjunct natal Chiron at 15 Cap. The natal sun /black moon midpoint at 19 Scorpio is also triggered as well.
    My primary relationship is under stress, I just learned my job is being restructured, elderly parents are very frail and a hoped for working connection has stalled, to my great sadness. The last eclipse in Sept 15 brought me a experience of extreme cathartic release of grief, I think from past lives, that began in a workshop and lasted two weeks taking me, eventually to a much deeper connection with planet earth. If that was preparation what now?
    Thank you for consideration, Tig

    • No need to worry. You know it is going to be similar to the last six month and actually gives you the extra energy and initiative to fix any problems. It has to be better than the opposition to your Mars surely.

  27. Hi Jamie, or anyone else who might be of service: This March 8th Solar Eclipse is perfectly conjunct my natal moon which perfectly trines my Cancer ascendant. Any ideas as to what I can expect from this conjunction?

    Thank you!

    Kenny

    • My natal Cancer moon is making close trine with natal Jupiter which will make conjunction with the eclipse.
      And yours like Cancer Ascendant, interesting.
      I think because the feeling and nuances of this eclipse is really familiar with us, as long you know yourself really well, you will making adjustment just fine, you’re in tune with this eclipse. If you’re a teenager who doesn’t really know yourself, you probably having hard time adjusting.
      But I think my emotion will cooperate with this eclipse just fine and for you, the circumstance (representing moon transit) will be favorable in the time of change.

  28. Hi Jamie

    Once again your posts are enlightening 🙂 Guess what? The eclipse is just opposite my natal Jupiter which was already touched by previous eclipse ….an yeah I have a deep wound in my soul right now! I was not treated with respect but I don’t see how Chiron will fix the mess. Someone was unethical and disloyal but this person does not seem to be punished or even feel guilty about hurting someone that was supposedly important in its life…. so I have some questions running on my head:

    1) As it is just opposite the previous eclipse could it work as a closure? or because Jupiter is in transit and conjunct my natal Jupiter we are heading to a new ride on the same topic?
    2) Would the “obstacle” that appeared with previous eclipse be now eclipsed?
    3) Could it be possible to feel this eclipse 3 months ago? (beginning Dec 2015)
    4) Would Chiron (8 house) opposite my natal Jupiter (2 house) explain financial and emotional setbacks??

    Thank you

    • I think first you gotta make yourself familiar with Jupiter in Virgo- interpretation because that Jupiter is you.
      Unethical or disloyal aren’t something Jupiter in Virgo known for, that must came from Jupiter in Pisces, because they’re seem lofty/ out of place. Maybe the payback is for them, not yours. ^^

    • I don’t think it matters if the other person goes unpunished because that should be unrelated to your healing. I have a similar thing with this eclipse also opposite my Jupiter.

      1. Yes, and the Jupiter return means a new start or new cycle of growth beginning.
      2. I hope so.
      3. I don’t believe so but some other astrologer believe that moon phases can be felt beforehand.
      4. Maybe, Jupiter is wealth but I’m not so sure about emotional.

  29. Hi Jamie, back again, 3rd decan leo..8/19/33. My asc is Gemini, March 8th solar will take place in my 11th house
    sextile to natal part of fortune in Taurus….12th house…ruled by Aries. What can I expect, anything good
    Nancy…..thank you so much….appreciate

    • Simply sextile your POF is good for the happiness of your soul and material gain. I ignore houses and signs.

  30. Do these interpretations apply to Pisces decan 2 specifically?

  31. Hi Jamie.
    It seems I never looked up eclipse that really could be interpreted as direct slap to my face.

    ~Firstly, the March 8 Solar eclipse located exactly at my natal Jupiter.
    ~I have natal chiron and lilith both in 20-21 degree Gemini
    ~I have natal Jupiter square chiron, this alignment also make transit chiron (20 Pisces) square natal chiron (20 Gem), how painful that would be?
    ~current Jupiter transit isn’t really making conjunction with anyone but 18-19 degree Virgo is my vertex, if you familiar with that astrology point.
    ~ Transit Neptune in opposition with my natal sun (7 degree Virgo)
    ~ Transit mercury will making opposition with my natal sun shortly..
    ~ I just had my Saturn return last year, probably will experience again this year (rx).
    ~ Transit Mars on that day (1 degree Sag) will squaring my natal mercury.
    ~ and the solar eclipse will be visible from Indonesia, I came from Indonesia 🙂

    Good or bad, I’m so eager to see..
    Hopefully I won’t blow up that day 🙂

    • That’s interesting… my Chiron is at 18 degrees Taurus so it trines my natal Jupiter and I was wondering if this eclipse and Chiron transit would also have a word with my natal Chiron….I guess that because I have a trine it might hurt but less than a square … although I hope it can heal in both cases at the end…

      And btw you are right with your comment (“Unethical or disloyal aren’t something Jupiter in Virgo known for”) as my professional and personal cicle tend to say that I am too ethical and loyal ….maybe my Saturn in Virgo also helps.

    • I have Jupiter opposite you so I experienced the same thing with the September 2015 solar eclipse at 19 Virgo.A very good thing , my business grew, more income and now I am fat. The best information I found on the Vertex Point: What is the Vertex? by Alice Portman.

  32. Somehow I’m getting hunch with your description about “giving up” because of personal incapability. Oh lord.

  33. That’s interesting… my Chiron is at 18 degrees Taurus so it trines my natal Jupiter and I was wondering if this eclipse and Chiron transit would also have a word with my natal Chiron

  34. Great stuff! Thank you Jamie. The Solar ecliose will be in my 6th house 1degree from my Vertex. I’m very curious to see what will come, I’ve only recently begun to learn about the Vertex.
    All the best and thanks for the brill forecasts and otger information. Top websits 🙂

  35. My birthday is also March 8, although I am fairly young the past few years have been really against me it seems. Tho the energy of change is very strong the last few weeks, I have a new reinforced will to heal my body and mind so it’s strange to keep reading about this.

  36. “Solar eclups sq. Saturn”,
    How long will it be felt, the entire 6 months?
    Thx, Coliberi
    *Have a speedy recovery*

  37. My ascendant is 18 degrees 55 minutes Virgo, and my Saturn is 0 degrees Sag (Sun 12 Taurus) so this eclipse is a bullseye on my chart. I’m having trouble seeing my way through this one, so far noticing urges to leave everything behind. But that may be the healing – Chiron on 7th house cusp – not to give in to separateness. Any thoughts anyone?

    • Maybe you need change, Nina? As you said about ‘leaving everything behind.’ Maybe the old is no longer serving you. Keep the hope and faith, you never know what will/could happen in the future. It’s unpredictable and even beyond astrology. Astrology doesn’t have all the answers to our destiny. Where you were born with Saturn in Sag, you will be effected by this transit, as it’s your Saturn Return. It’s a karmic time, as you probably already know? What you can do to help this Karmic Saturn Return transit, is to try to give out as much good karma as you can, to help ease some of the Karmic effects of your Saturn Return. I too am going through my Saturn Return with it being in Sagittarius. Although, I experienced most of the karmic events when it was travelling through my Sun sign Scorpio. I’ve had my fair share of karma! We can’t escape it! Good luck, Nina. Give out good. Embrace the new and unfamiliar, and don’t be afraid of change and exploring a different way of life/career, whatever it might be for you.

        • Hi Nina, you’re welcome. Sometimes life can get so hard. I’ve had quite a difficult life, but many hight points too. The only thing that ever got me through these really hard times, was having hope. And hope worked. It can take time, but things can only get better.

      • Nina, mirecules can & will happen…
        Trust yourself. Take action.
        You will see.
        Best of luck & joy

  38. Great words. I haven’t had the chance to read all of this right now, but will do at a later point. I’ve read parts and the summary. It’s interesting, because I’ve started Yoga lessons recently that are coinciding with this solar eclipse and I think that it will help heal my body. Release energy, open up the chakras, stretch out muscles that get too tight, relax the nerves etc. We all need healing on this earth. Also, I just wanted to mention that on your map, this total solar eclipse is moving past the deepest part of the Ocean, next to Japan. It makes me think of; emotion, hidden depths of the soul, somethings that’s deep rooted – at the deepest parts of the water – literally. There’s something to that.

    • I’ve just finished reading the other parts of this article. It makes me think of the poem titled ‘Pain,’ by Khalil Gibran in his book ‘The Prophet.’ Here’s part of the poem.

      “It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
      Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity:
      For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
      And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.”

      The potter makes me think of Chiron. And “the tender hand of the Unseen,” sounds quite spiritual and esoteric. When you look up at the stars tonight. Think about it.

        • Aww, thanks Colibrie. That’s kind of you to say! I feel like I’m stealing the ‘limelight,’ whilst Jamie’s having a few days to heal! Haha 🙂

  39. I was the absolute archetype of the wounded healer and have had to work diligently the fast few years to successfully release a lifetime of emotional wounds. I recently decided this is the year to begin writing, speaking and creating a business model with a focus on spiritual and energetic healing. In regards to Chiron, I think its very interesting (and hopefully highly fortuitous) that I enrolled in a Reiki Healing class earlier today.

    I believe I am in perfect alignment with these energies, and because I’ve done all the grunt work so to speak, it seems as if Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto can actually assist me in creating and manifesting some new goals and in helping me to recreate myself in the image I most desire to be.

    I’m a new student of astrology, but Jupiter is in my 12th House (Gemini), Saturn my 9th (Pisces), and Pluto and Uranus are in my 3rd (Virgo). Totally clueless how it all fits within this New Moon and Eclipse and would welcome any feedback.

    Namaste, peace and healing.

    Anam Cara

  40. Jamie — not sure whether you can sense this: by reading your this article, heavy loads of wounds in my spirit and soul suddenly started to go through a brand-new healing process. Came to your article without knowing much of hope of understanding, as I didn’t know anything about astrology. But within seconds after I was done with it, ‘a bright light lit in the darkness’ and showed me the path that I was unable to see previously. Renewed confidence, renewed hope, renewed spirit… . Also your idea: spirituality combined with practicality. In order for the body syncs with spirit, to serve longer and serve better, serve more, on this earth.
    Virgos are healing the world. Thank you Jamie.

  41. What happened with everyone with the eclipse? My bf broke up with me yesterday!!

    • Know the feeling – The love of my life broke up with me on the Saturday (12th March) 🙁

  42. I have been in bed with a terrible fever for the past two days and today, right at the time of the eclipse my ex-husband, who I have been in the process of breaking up with for the past year walked in and started pushing and shoving and throwing chairs like a maniac. Although it has been painful, I have realized over these days that yet another one of his tentacles has been broken and even though I am really feverish and weak I feel optimistic that I can and i will make it out of this sick relationship, even if it means I have to crawl out. So, yes, wounded healer…. I have five planets in Pisces and my birthday is on the 23rd. He has moon in Pisces. All healing thoughts and prayers are welcome.

  43. Uranus is now at 19Ari18 inconjunct my Sun at 20Vir52, trine my Saturn at 19Sag27 and semi-sextile my Midheaven at 17Pis04. I’ve got my whistle out. It’s making a shrill noise.

  44. I remember this date. It was the culmination of a build-up (attitude-wise) from the 22nd Feb. full moon whence I quit my present job in Spirit while on vacation to attend a faraway family wedding. “See what the next 18+ months brings…”, I smiled inwardly to me. Am a Saggitarius decan 3, 19th Dec. ’72, 0240 hours.
