There will be six eclipses in 2009, and that’s more than usual. An average year has four. But it fits doesn’t it, this feeling of a new era, so of course there are more eclipses to boost the change. The first two eclipses will happen on January 26 (6° Aquarius), just as Jupiter enters Aquarius, and February 9,(20° Leo) just after the second pass of Saturn opposed Uranus. The next three eclipses will be July 7 (15° Capricorn), and then a Total Solar Eclipse (29° Cancer) will pass over China, where the earthquake was last year. The third Eclipse of Summer in the Northern hemisphere will be August 6, (13° Aquarius). The final eclipse happens just before the year ends on New Years Eve (10° ‘Cancer).
This year the Leo – Aquarius as well as the Cancer – Capricorn axes are highlighted. Those of us with personal planets in those signs will do well to welcome the new and throw out the old for a fresh new change.
