Heya, I meant to post on this a couple of days ago, but my life has been full to bursting of chaos for the past several weeks. I'll be posting a Yule seasonal forecast for all of the winter season, but I'll talk briefly about eclipses now.

Total eclipses of the moon are pretty rare. We get a lot of annular (partial) eclipises, but for the Earth's shadow to completely encompass the Moon is a marvel of orbital dynamics. As such, eclipses correspond to big, life-changing impacts on our lives that span six months to a year.

Tonight's eclipse reaches totality at 29°22' Gemini. This is the very last degree of Gemini and very nearly the beginning of Cancer. The totality of the eclipse is also the Full Moon in Gemini, with the Sun still in Sagittarius up until Yule itself tomorrow evening.

To find out how you're going to be affected by the eclipse )
