Lunar Eclipse Meaning
Like any full moon, a lunar eclipse focuses your attention on relationships of all kinds. The Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse. This lets you take an objective and balanced look at your close personal relationships. Being in touch with your own needs and intentions, and those of others, you can clearly see any relationship imbalances causing disharmony.
With a lunar eclipse in particular, the blotting out of the Moon represents a resetting of emotions, clearing away the emotional baggage of the previous six months. The horoscope for a lunar eclipse is like a snapshot in time, but like old style photography, it takes time to develop.
The February 16 lunar eclipse marks the end of an eclipse phase which began with the challenging September 2016 solar and lunar eclipse. Together with the February 26 solar eclipse, this February 10 lunar eclipse will remain active until the August 2017 lunar eclipse.
Lunar Eclipse February 2017 Astrology
Lunar eclipse February 2017 is located at 22°28′ Leo Sign as well as in Leo Constellation. At 21°40′ Leo in the Head of the Lion, fixed star Ras Elased Borealis will have some typically brash Leo influence but is not a major player among the stars. The full moon/lunar eclipse aspect itself, Sun opposite Moon, is much more powerful and highlights relationship dynamics and the polarities between partners, home and work, friends and family etc.
Jupiter opposite Uranus complicates those personal issues by exaggerating your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. There may be a sudden event that releases your built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances. The more restricted you have felt, the more upsetting this change is likely to be.
