An eclipse typically makes you aware of certain things, pushing you in the right direction in some way. Solar eclipses specifically typically correspond with new beginnings and opportunities. For many people, solar eclipses are when we realize we need more than what we’re currently receiving, and we send cosmic invitations to the universe to welcome abundance.
This eclipse is also about fixing an imbalances in your life. It might help you close some parts of the past that you don’t need to be focused on anymore, or bring about some kind of revelation.
