What Does A Partial Solar Eclipse Mean?

A partial solar eclipse means new beginnings.

With new beginnings come a lot of questions and confusion. Think about it: whenever you enter a new journey in your life you're a bit like a newborn lamb. Your legs are a bit shaky until you get your land legs and figure it all out.

This partial solar eclipse will feel the same way.

You aren't going to feel exactly like yourself. On top of that, you may be presented with news that throws you off balance.

It's important to remember that this is, usually, a positive change. Even if what is presented with you originally appears to be negative, these journeys are what make you stronger mentally and emotionally.

While this is set to happen on one day, February 15, it may take you a few weeks to smooth these feeling over and become your "new normal."

It is a good time to think about your future and your goals. This is your chance! Maybe a door was shut on one dream, but a window has been open leading towards a new path — you just have to have the guts to take the leap.
