Eclipses occur when Earth, Sun and Moon Line Up On the Line of Nodes
In my 2018 annual Astro forecast I had indicated likelihood of two turbulent periods in 2018. Well, the first one (mid-January to mid-March) is here. And within that turbulence we may likely see a peak disturbance, which is the subject of this post. Each of us may experience this disturbance differently.
For approximately two weeks from January 27th to February 10th, 2018, the gravitational force fields connecting the Earth to Venus, Sun and Mercury will pass through a zone of turbulence. The turbulence zone is being created by the Moon’s orbit passing through the Earth-Sun gravitational force field.
One of the outcomes of such orbital intersections are eclipses which can be seen by the naked eye. In this case, a lunar eclipse on January 31st and solar eclipse on February 15th. However, it is not the physical outcome of the eclipses that impacts us: it is the gravitational field disturbance which arises due to the orbital intersections that gives rise to the impacts discussed and indicated here.
Such disturbed gravitational force field zones begin to be created approximately 6 weeks prior to the first of two eclipses (the solar and lunar eclipses usually happen in rapid succession, not necessarily in the same sequence, within two weeks. These sets of eclipses generally happen twice a year). The turbulence in the Sun-Earth gravitational field usually lasts 6 weeks after the second eclipse.
Turbulence in this field, which channels differently through each of us, and the Earth in general, may become apparent in different areas of our lives. The disturbance is further stirred and nuanced when the gravitational fields of other planets pass through the turbulence generated by the Moon’s orbit through the Sun-Earth force field.
The ascendant signs, that I am using to provide impact indications in this post, are based on the Systems Approach to Vedic Astrology framework. This framework uses sidereal computations to map the skies (which is the same as how NASA maps the skies), not the tropical zodiac (used by Western Astrologers, which does not take Earth’s precession into account).
If you do not have your Vedic astrology birth chart, please use the information on our contact information page. Connect with us via email with birth details (birth time, date, place). We will get back to you with your ascendant sign and ascendant degree in your birth chart.
Level of Impact of disturbance by Ascendant Sign
The January 27th to February 10th 2018 disturbance is likely to impact ascendant signs as follows:
Gemini, Leo, Aquarius: Relatively higher impact.
Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Libra, Aries, Taurus, Scorpio: Relatively moderate impact.
Sagittarius and Cancer: Relatively Low Impact.
Impact may be amplified on those with their birth chart ascendant degrees between 19 and 21, within each of the impact ranges identified above.
Having an accurate Vedic astrology ascendant degree is likely to help you understand your alert / readiness requirement level in this context.
Impact Assessment on Each Ascendant Sign (January 27th – February 10th 2018)
Aries: Some moderate impact may be seen in children, health and romance and partner / spouse relationship areas.
Taurus: Some moderate impact may be seen in home, assets, children, romance, and health areas.
Gemini: A relatively higher impact may be seen in areas of new initiatives, younger siblings / team members, home and asset issues and children and romance.
Cancer: Relatively low impact likely on general sense of well-being, younger siblings / team members, home and asset issues.
Leo: Relatively higher impact likely on health, career, younger siblings / team member issues.
Virgo: Some moderate impact likely on social status, health and general sense of well-being.
Libra: Some moderate impact may be experienced in income from investments / pensions, social status and health.
Scorpio: Some moderate impact may be experienced in career, passive income and relationship with spouse.
Sagittarius: Some low level impact likely on being less travel, good fortune, career and passive income.
Capricorn: Moderate impact may be experienced in health, travel, good fortune and career areas.
Aquarius: Relatively higher impact may be experienced in health, travel, good fortune and relationship with spouse / partner.
Pisces: A moderate level of impact may be seen in health and relationship with spouse / partner.
How to make use of and manage these potential impact indications
- The impact indications are to be seen as possibilities (with a high, moderate or low chances of being realized), not certainties.
- The alert is to help you pay attention to specific indicated areas and be a little more prepared.
- Slowing down, keeping low profile, being focused and attentive helps.
