Eclipse Cycles

"Those who fail to learn from the past, are doomed to repeat it."

George Santayana

Night and Day. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Holidays. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


Our lives our filled with rhythms of time measured in a myriad of different ways. How often are we consciously aware of them?


Did you know that eclipses come in cycles? Yes, they repeat every six months, at similar degrees, and occur in the same two signs over the course of about 18 months.


But there's more.


9 years ago they were also in Cancer/Capricorn, like today, but in the opposite sign.


18.6 years ago they were in the same exact signs as now.


And so on, back in time, in 9 and 18.6 years' increments, all the way back to several hundred years ago to the year when this particular family of eclipses (also called Saros cycle) first started.


Fascinating fact, but what does it mean for me?


It means that your personal story is jump started from eclipse to eclipse, with the same themes and the same patterns. So whatever happened to you back in 2010 or in the year 2000 is still going on for you today, only as a new chapter in the story of your life. A Solar Eclipse is like a New Moon on steroids. So its all about new beginnings in the sphere of life represented by the house it falls into in your chart. Similarly, a Lunar Eclipse is like a Full Moon.


This applies if - and this is a big if - this eclipse touches natal planets or angles. If not, you can sleep like a baby. It's not your turn.


So what was going on for you then? And how is this manifesting for you now?


Find out below the critical repeating degrees for the next few eclipses, plus in which signs eclipses fell over the last sixty years.
