Supermoon Total Solar Eclipse March 9, 2016

March-9-2016-eclipseThe first eclipse for the year (not visible in Melbourne and exact at 12:55pm AEDT) will pass over parts of Indonesia and spend most of its time crossing the Pacific Ocean. FYI, a supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth. There will be 6 supermoons this year: the new moons of March 9, April 7 and May 7 and the full moons of October 16, November 14 and December 14. All new and full moons create larger-than-usual tides but supermoons elevate the tides even more.

The chart of this eclipse (in effect until the next Solar eclipse, September 1) features a T-square: the Moon in a Pisces stellium, opposed by Jupiter and the North Node, all squared by Saturn in Sagittarius. Time to go out, get social, meet new people and enjoy connections that open doors to new opportunities. Extravagant Jupiter will be less jovial and quite neurotic in Virgo, which will challenge Piscean sensitivity. Plus the opposition is provocative and invites confrontations as emotions run high. So take care with your actions and watch what you say, and don’t over-analyse things. At the same time, Saturn will pull in the reins and restructure aspects of your life (including beliefs) that may have become stagnant, tired and redundant. It will be just like the season, where the leaves of some trees change colour and fall away.
