This Total Solar Eclipse is a personal cosmic re-set, an opportunity not to be missed, so take it easy, spending the day occupied with yourself!
The ruler of the New Moon appears in your fourth house, drawing you inward. Consider ‘home base’, identify with your heritage or come home to roost! Sensitivity could be high, emotions impossible to ignore.
This is your familiar sector of nurture, nourishment, clans and nostalgia so there could be a sense you’re actively dealing with the past, ready to show enthusiasm around household matters, parenting, a parent or members of your family.

Pause liberally, without resistance or struggle…
Move beyond yourself and into a profoundly spiritual solution. Take time in reflection, behind the scenes, mourning or retreating to explore a mystery or fantasy – dreams and escapism may lure you in, with (death and) the more elusive side of life before you…
