Lunar and Solar Eclipses: How They Affect Us

Annular Solar Eclipse

Understanding the Deeper Meaning of an Eclipse
The moon has no natural light. When we see a bright full moon in the sky, it’s actually reflecting the light of the sun. Solar eclipses happen when the moon stands between the sun and the earth, and lunar eclipses occur when the earth stands between the moon and the sun.

Eclipses come in pairs and always occur in two opposing signs, each coinciding with full moons (lunar eclipses) and new moons (solar eclipses). Once a group of signs is done in the cycle, they will not repeat for seven to eight years.

2012 Eclipses
Groups of eclipses can cross over each other. The two remaining eclipses of this year will occur in November. The upcoming new moon solar eclipse taking place on November 13 in Scorpio is the start of a new group of eclipses (Scorpio-Taurus) which ends in 2014. The current Sagittarius-Gemini group of eclipses will end with the full moon lunar eclipse in Gemini on November 28.
