February 2018 Partial Solar Eclipse Astrology Predictions That Every Sign Should Know

Ad failed to load

Thanks to Bonnie Tyler's 1983 hit, it's total eclipses (of the heart and other things) that we're most familiar with, but there are other kinds too. Partial solar eclipses are also a thing, and they can impact our lives here on Earth just as much as their more complete counterparts. We'll experience a partial solar eclipse on Feb. 15, and I have all of your February 2018 partial solar eclipse astrology predictions right here. The good news? It's basically all positive.

During a partial solar eclipse, the moon, sun, and Earth don't quite line up perfectly, which means that the moon only casts the outer part of its shadow on Earth, according to Time and Date. From our perspective, it looks like the moon has taken a bite out of the sun. (Note that, during a total solar eclipse, the moon more fully blocks the sun from our view.) The next partial solar eclipse will start at 1:55 p.m. EST, per Time and Date, and will be visible primarily in southern South America and Antarctica, and from some areas of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

While the visual impact of the partial solar eclipse might be somewhat diluted, the same can't be said for its astrological impacts. "A partial solar eclipse is just as potent as a regular full blast solar eclipse," NYC-based astrologer Lisa Stardust tells Bustle. "In the sign of Aquarius, it's really focused on how we relate to the collective through action and communication. It will force us all to step outside our comfort zones."
