Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces 8-9 March 2016: New Possibilities Come Alive!

Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces 8-9 March 2016: New Possibilities Come Alive!

March 2016 brings a total Solar Eclipse in the sign of Pisces throwing the cosmic dice and blowing the field wide open to new possibilities. The eclipse takes place on March 9th at 01:54 GMT in the UK and on March 8th at 20:54 EST/17:54 PDT in the US.

Get ready for your world to be flooded with dreams and visions. The veil between fantasy and reality is already quite thin in Pisces and this eclipse rips this veil wide, opening the floodgates to a deluge of feelings, insights and delusions. Such a tear in reality’s fabric makes you conscious of that magical space between sleep and wakefulness. This eclipse may feel to you like a lucid dream, when you’re suddenly aware that you are dreaming. Or it may feel so ‘out of this world’ that you will have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming.  Developments may leave you tired with a very thin grip on events, as it happens when you have gone a few days without sleep and are living on the edge of your senses.  If you’ve had a powerful dream, you can always check in with us to find out the dream's meaning.

So what can you do with such a powerful spiritual awakening? The best advice is to let it all wash over you - dreams, visions, illusions, feelings, reverie, inspiration, insight, longing, confusion and a whole other cloudburst of data, false and true. This way you can sidestep a danger of getting sucked down a rabbit hole. Another way to make the best of this would be to immerse yourself into a creative project or anchor yourself in some other imaginative or meditative activity that provides a safe framework for this deluge. Then, once the flood subsides, you can open your eyes and see what untold jewels of the deep the great waters may have left behind for you.

This eclipse amplifies and distills your goals. This sets you on a new path, as time undergoes a magical rearrangement, branches of your past falling away just as new possible futures start to grow... You will not see the real upshot of all this for another six months and events may even influence you for nine years.  We had another new moon total solar eclipse in Pisces in March 2015 and the current one follows hot on its heels. So whatever began for you last March now gets a powerful new injection of energy. 

There are helpers and challengers to aid your journey through this magical land. Saturn in Sagittarius is putting up a valiant fight to help you discern what’s real. Meanwhile Jupiter in Virgo is shouting from the far side of the ocean, illuminating your goals and calling you back ashore. But the real challenge may be Chiron in Pisces, making you keenly aware of your insecurities and human fragility. If you are feeling at a low ebb, then let Pluto in Capricorn unlock your powers of healing and regeneration. This is a very rich and potent eclipse indeed. Plan as little as you can and get ready for life to pick up pace.

The eclipse affects you most if you have planets/points between 13-23 degrees Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini. Check out your birth chart to find out for sure. You can also read more about what eclipses are and about the eclipses that are coming your way in 2016.

This eclipse’s lost dream-like energy is very unlike your own dynamism, overwhelming you with strange images and feelings.

Taurus likes things to be solid, but your world suddenly becomes soft and malleable like putty during this eclipse. Let’s hope it’s putty in your hands so that you can mould it as you wish, because if it falls in someone else’s hands, wishful thinking won’t get you far. If your calendar is looking rather full, why not check out this week’s fashion horoscope? You gotta look the part after all. Here’s a few things that can happen: 
1. A new friend: This may be a brand new start in your friendships, whether this means reuniting with old friends, making new ones or getting rid of hangers on.

5. Welcome to the club: You may gain entry at an elite and dreamy group or club. 


Do you crave fame? Notoriety? Maybe it’s all the same to you and this eclipse will make it hard for you to discern the difference. Up-up you go to be deified or…down, down to be vilified. Which? Read more in your 2016 career horoscope! Your ideas of success are undergoing a magical transformation and so are your goals as a result. Here’s what could happen:
1. Bye Bye to old bosses: Who is to have authority over you? Here’s an idea. Maybe no one, or at least no one who abuses that privilege. 
2. New goals replace obsolete ones: This is the moment for you to consult your inner compass and change direction if need be.
3. Reinvent your public image: What do you want others to see when they look at you? You have a chameleon-like quality and can be anyone you wish. So what do you wish for?
4. Hit ‘reset’ with a parent: Time to clear the decks with your mother, father or other relative you consider older and wiser.
5. Fame and fortune here we come: Put the world under your spell!


This eclipse is a dream within a dream within a dream. Whatever you thought was possible for you, you are probably not using your imagination enough! Unless you are following your keen intuition of course, which tells you that something magical is taking place, calling you to distant shores and to do something totally different with your life.

5. Try new experiences: This is no time to stay in your comfort zone!


You may have been hurt before by trusting someone who proclaimed to be one thing and then turned out to be completely another. If that was only last year, then it’s time to undo the damage that’s been done. Just let the floodgates of your soul open up again and release any grief. Trying to figure someone out?

5. It’s good to be vulnerable: Opening up to someone, especially when you know the dangers, is the bravest thing you can do. And there is no love without intimacy. Dare to get close again.

5. Popular much? You may be an absolute hit just now and swamped by fans…


This eclipse may wreck havoc with your physical body. Watch out for contagious bugs and the like that could find their way through your lowered defences. Sleep it off.

1. A new lifestyle: Inject your everyday life with music, fashion, magic and romance!
2. Changes at work: If it’s all a bit disorienting wait for the dust to settle before you focus on the details.
3. Health craze: Something as simple as a deep tissue massage or juice cleanse can make you feel like a brand new person. But don’t take it too far.
4. Pet(ty) matters: Don’t get lost in a sea of detail. Alternatively a little furry friend may need your attention.
5. Routine? What routine? Everything is all up in the air just now.

Here are some clever tips about how to improve your finances through astrology. You may feel slightly weak and ethereal just now too, so give your body plenty of fluids and time to rest. Here’s what to look out for:
1. Show me the money: Expenses may be boring a hole into your pocket. Let your imagination guide you toward greater riches…but avoid get-rich-quick schemes that may leave you worse off.
2. Flesh and blood: Your body is extra sensitive now. Treat it gently.
3. Changing priorities: What’s really important? The eclipse is about to turn the tables.
4. Discover latent talents: Waste not want not - and especially so regarding a hitherto untapped resource that this eclipse brings to light.
5. Lost and Found: Have you misplaced something? Or are you giving things away? It's all part of an urge to travel lighter...

In fact, why not take advantage of our special offer and see your destiny revealed? Let the past fall away and reinvent your identity. Here’s a few matters that may intrigue you:

3. A fresh outlook: Whatever you did want all these years, this is rapidly changing. New desires are born.
4. Take the lead! Time to focus on what you want, put yourself first and go after it in no uncertain terms.
5.  Shapeshifting... You are transforming yourself in broad daylight. Let the morphing commence. Show everyone how it’s done!
