I keep hearing how the house in which eclipses occur and any strong tight aspects to natal chart points usually show where a person needs to make a decision or is taking action.
Robert Jansky in his Interpreting the Eclipses claims that the Pre-Natal Eclipse is a key chart indicator. This is the Solar Eclipse prior to one’s birthday. He contends its house is an area that needs to be expanded in one’s life. The sign on the cusp and its element show how that expansion should occur, and on what level: fire corresponds to spiritual, earth corresponds to physical, air corresponds to mental, and water corresponds to emotional.
