Ready for liftoff? A solar eclipse this Thursday in Aquarius is your ticket to leaving a boring existence behind you! There will be a number of eclipses in this part of your chart between now and 2019, each one designed to take you into unchartered territory. For some of you, this may mean applying to college, grad school or night classes. For others it could mean sailing a yacht across the Caribbean. Still others might get in touch with their inner entrepreneur and get a startup going.
Chances are you won’t be doing all of this by yourself, either. Uranus is in a good angle to the eclipse from your house of friends and networking, indicating that someone (or a group of people) might be interested in teaming up with you. Even if you’re not in the mood for taking on partners, a mentor could offer their wisdom to you, so don’t be too proud to ask for help.
The eclipse could also bring a big change to your love life, as it will encourage you to break out of a rut. If you’re already coupled up, this might mean traveling to a funkier place than you and your partner are used to, or trying a daring new sport. Those Geminis looking for love should keep their minds open as someone who’s a break from the old mold could come your way: a different ethnic group, perhaps, or someone who has a different philosophy about life.
Let’s not forget that Valentine’s Day occurs the day before, so this year could be quite more adventurous than last! You could also be hearing wedding bells as Mars is in a terrific angle on the 14th from your commitment zone. Singles, this “new type” could be more than a fling…it could be the real deal. And those of you who are dating could end up taking your romance to the next logical level.
At the office you could be stymied by paralysis by analysis. This is especially true on Monday and Tuesday. Either you, co-workers or clients could be too fixated on the small stuff rather than focusing on the big picture. Major projects have the energy to leap ahead, thanks to the eclipse, but make sure that everything is spit and polished before you release them to the world (especially online or through social media and other marketing platforms).
Making sure that everything is good to go will become even more critical once Mercury enters your career zone on Saturday. The next three weeks are terrific for interviewing, strategizing and developing more presence in your field. The Sun enters the same sector next week, so the spotlight will definitely be on you.
