Things have been going easy for you so far this year, so it’s time to have a few challenges to keep you on your toes, and to prevent you from getting too complacent. We have two eclipses this month that shake things up in the world and in your environment.

The solar eclipse of the 9th (in America it happens on the 8th) occurs in your money house and announces important financial changes. Generally these changes happen as a result of some unexpected expense or financial upheaval. You’re forced to change your thinking and strategy. The eclipse will show you why your previous thinking was unrealistic.

Every solar eclipse tests love and partnerships and this one is no different. Sometimes these tests happen because of suppressed grievances – dirty laundry – being forced up by the eclipse. Sometimes it is due to some drama in the life of the spouse, partner or current love. If the relationship is fundamentally sound, it will survive and get even better. It’s the flawed ones that are in danger. Though the beloved seems more affected than you by the eclipse, it won’t hurt for both of you to reduce your schedules over this period.

This solar eclipse impacts on Mars, so it will be a good idea to drive more defensively at this time. There can be communication failures and glitches. Communication equipment will get tested and might need replacement or repair. There are dramas in the lives of siblings, sibling figures and neighbours – and often disruptions in the neighbourhood. Students can change schools or education plans. This eclipse also impacts on Saturn, which shows spiritual changes for you; changes in practice, attitude and perhaps even teachings. There are shake-ups in a spiritual or charitable organization that you belong to, and dramas in the lives of guru figures.

The lunar eclipse of the 23rd occurs in your 9th house. This also indicates educational changes for students. The previous eclipse affected students below college level; this one affects college or post-graduate students. Children and children figures are affected too. They should stay out of harm’s way. Communication problems are likely with this eclipse too, as Mercury is affected, and as before it will be a good idea to drive more carefully. Every lunar eclipse tests the current health regime (as the Moon is your health planet), and there will be changes here over the coming months. Job changes could also happen – either within your present company or with another one. There are shake-ups in the place of work.

Career is less of a priority this month but there is success happening from the 12th to the 20th. Friends seem helpful here. Your technology expertise plays a role too.
