CAPRICORN, this eclipse falls in your 11th House - Your friendships and your reputation come sharply into focus during this eclipse. Friendships, group activities and what other people think will matter more as your reputation could be analyzed by others, for better or for worse.
You’re pursuing your dream and it’s exciting, as you start to see things take shape over the next few months. Relationships with friends or acquaintances also become more clear this month as some matter comes to climax, and the dust slowly settles over the next while. A female association may get lost in the process. Certainly any activities you do within a community of people with common interests are highlighted and positive opportunities should come out of it.

Or, it may be time to release some part of your professional identity.
PISCES, this eclipse falls in your 9th house and awakens questions about the meaning of your life and the direction you’ve been taking.
How can I expand my world and better reach my potentials? You might be thinking of studying, formally or not, or teaching and passing on what you know. There’s an academic or IT theme here. Maybe you’re completing some certification or program? Writing or publishing a book or magazine? You’re feeling philosophical; what is the big picture and where do I fit in? What stimulates both my intellect and soul for higher growth?

This is likely something that you’ve been building on over the last 2 years, and now, it seems to show signs of coming magically to life, or alternatively, coming to an end.

Maybe you’re renovating, selling, or buying a new home; or fixing it up in some way. Or maybe you are buying a second property or even a property-based business.
