Eclipses of 2022 – How to prepare for these events
The year 2022 will have four eclipses: two solar and two lunar, in the Taurus-Scorpio axis through which the Lunar Nodes pass.
Eclipses occur in a certain order, they are phenomena that arouse curiosity and generally affect the collective. Astrologically, eclipses can trigger crisis situations that can unfold over the course of a few months.
The period of eclipses requires caution with imprudent behavior, and due to the increased tension generated, it is a good time to seek counseling and carry out therapeutic work.
Definitions of Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse
The lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon is in its Full phase. The Sun and Moon transit in opposite signs, for example: Sun in Taurus and Moon in Scorpio. The Moon is eclipsed, it is hidden, and since astrologically the Moon represents the past and emotional security, people become more insecure, reactive, and afraid.
The lunar eclipse can cause a departure from the comfort zone, external situations can generate temporary or definitive changes.
The solar eclipse happens in the New Phase, when the Sun and the Moon transit in the same sign. The Sun is obscured and as the Sun in Astrology represents consciousness, the power of choice, and the future, with the Moon superimposed over the Sun, situations from the past can return.
The eclipse has a strong influence near the date it occurs, but its effects can manifest themselves over a period of six months, until the next eclipse, lunar or solar.
The unfolding of the eclipse in some situations can extend beyond six months and have effects for up to two years.
Changes and Uncertainties
The eclipse affects the natural order of things and this event can create uncertainty about three weeks before and after the phenomenon. Critical and problematic situations may be increased as there is a tendency to precipitate.
Changes and discoveries can occur within the period of six months or more after the eclipse. Unexpected events, reversals, changes in behavior, and reversal of situations, especially if eclipses trigger any planet or point in the Star Chart.
