Eclipses Represent Change
All eclipses represent transformation and 2021 has four eclipses unlike last year which kept the changes rolling nonstop with six eclipses. We can now breathe a small sigh of relief this year. Solar Eclipses represent male aspects whilst lunar eclipses represent the feminine energies.
Eclipses force us to confront our own shadow nature or the dark side of our personal subconscious. They are also a sign from the Universe that change will soon visit us on the Earth plane and it can be unpredictable and unexpected change. Change doesn’t always occur on the exact date of the eclipse, sometimes it is weeks or many months before or after the eclipse that something truly transformative happens, which is usually a big or life changing event.
Solar Eclipses = Action
Lunar Eclipses = Integration of Experiences
The power of solar eclipses normally lasts longer than lunar eclipses but that doesn’t mean that lunar eclipses are less potent. In fact, they may be more potent in the short term. An eclipse can be connected to the original source of events, but sometimes it takes the power of another planet passing over the same spot for the effect to be fully realised or understood.
Solar and Lunar Eclipses 2021
‘Flower Moon’ Total Lunar Eclipse - 26th May 2021 21:18 AEST
5° Sagittarius 26′
Fire – Transformation is bound to happen with regard to freedom, expansion and broadening your horizons generally. You may consider study, deep research, travel or big plans. In some way, life will change for the better as you become wiser from direct personal experience. Motivation and inspiration pave the way for deep inner healing and release as you may now take the opportunity of ‘living life large’.

Annual Solar Eclipse - 10th June 2021 19:12 AEST
19° Gemini 42′
Air – Profound changes in thinking are likely. Initially, it could feel confusing or chaotic as new but brilliant thoughts race through your brain with great alacrity! Old concepts need to go but trying to sort fact from fiction could take a little bit of time. Deep down in your mind, there are some real gold nuggets so write everything down because some of these ideas could pay handsome dividends in future.
Visible from most of Europe and Asia, North/West Africa, most of North America, Atlantic and Arctic.
Partial ‘Beaver Moon’ Lunar Eclipse - 19th November 2021 20:02 AEDT
27° Taurus 17′
Earth – Challenges to your physical body, laws, structures and organisations are likely. There is change in the air which is brought down to Earth. As hard as it might seem, it’s best to go with the flow rather than try to maintain the status quo. It could be uncomfortable initially but as time goes by, the changes will start to ‘bed in’ and feelings of security will emerge again. You’ve got this so be patient and it will all sort itself out.
Visible from most of Europe, much of Asia, Australia, North/West Africa, North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic.
Partial New Moon Solar Eclipse - 4th December 2021 16:29 AEDT

Your life becomes more expansive and growth becomes normal!

2021 Gifts Us Four Eclipses!
We have eclipses in two Fire, one Air and one Earth sign with no Water signs in 2021. An eclipse magnifies energy, it’s like a Supermoon on caffeine. It forces us to wake up, go down a path and take action at some point. An eclipse shakes us turbulently to the core in order to effect change. With eclipses in fiery Sagittarius twice, there’s bound to be a lot of passion and people could be getting hot under the collar in pursuit of their goals and desires.
Earthquakes, volcanic activity and detrimental weather sometimes occur around eclipses. Cancerians will feel the May 26 and November 19 lunar eclipses very intensely as they are ruled by the Moon whereas Sagittarians will feel the solar eclipses June 10 and December 4 intensely, because they are ruled by the Sun. If your birthday occurs on an eclipse or if an eclipse occurs in your sign, you are also likely to feel it more potently. You could also watch my horoscopes for your rising sign (aka ascendant) and your Moon sign.
Earth Sign Eclipses
Earth sign eclipses such as the eclipse of November 19 are likely to involve physical actions and structure. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn embody these qualities at a physical level. Great care is needed as we often think we know when in fact we can’t see the full picture, this applies especially at work. Logic and analytical thinking may be compromised and confused when Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn would just rather get on and get the job done. There could be a shake up with your physical body, laws, procedures and structures such as systems, buildings or even governments!
Fire Sign Eclipses
If an eclipse is in a fire sign like Sagittarius on May 26 and December 4, there’s likely to be passion and fiery emotions such as frustration, aggression, generosity and big heartedness. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are also normally all about adventure, expansiveness and excitement. There’s a desire to broaden personal life experience and if this can’t be met, that’s when the fireworks start!
Water Sign Eclipses
There are no Water sign eclipses in 2021. But normally Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are likely to be more affected by the rise and expression of repressed emotions and subconscious contents during Water sign eclipses. We probably had quite enough of this in 2020!
Air Sign Eclipses
There is one Air sign solar eclipse in 2021, June 10 in Gemini. An Air sign eclipse causes issues in the mental realm affecting memory, cognition and judgement. There could be confusion or general mental chaos, so important decisions could be delayed if possible around this time. It might also be that you say things you didn’t intend to, or give too much information away. On the upside, this confusion and ‘shaking up’ of our mental realms, can result in increased creativity and intuition. Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are likely to be most affected by this eclipse.
