From the Author

I’m thrilled that Eclipses is now available for astrologers! This book will be a valuable reference no matter your level of astrological expertise! Even non-astrologers will find it an interesting read. Writing the book was a labor of love. Everything an astrologer needs to interpret any eclipse is provided in a concise format that is easy to navigate and apply.

Each eclipse bears a distinct message, not just as it relates to world changes but also as it relates to individual evolution. Understanding this helps make the most of the transformational energy that is provided only through an eclipse.

Part 1 discusses each of the basic components of an eclipse, such as the distinctive influence of the Dragon’s Head or Dragon’s Tail. The Lord of an eclipse helps identify those industries, companies and individuals an eclipse will impact. The life span of an eclipse is a critical component and you’ll learn to accurately judge and time events.

Part 2 explores world events-- past, present and future-- as they connect to eclipses. Part 3 discusses personal eclipses and how to interpret an eclipse falling in a house or on a planet in an individual’s horoscope. This knowledge helps navigate your life and helps you supply clients with pertinent information and guidance. Appendixes furnish all you’ll need to track eclipses in your personal life, for your clients, for your business or company, or around the world for the next decade and beyond! Annotated eclipse charts are included to the year 2012!

This book thoroughly explains eclipses and how they impact your life.
Candace Czarny
This is a well written and easy to read book that touches on a subject that is not well discussed in the astrological literature.

She is right on in this book, Alot of things in this book has already happen.

Celeste Teal has put together a thoughtful and well researched book on eclipses. She has clearly done her homework and read the relevant literature, but with a questioning mind. Rather than take traditional beliefs about eclipses for granted, she has put them to the test and come up with some new findings of her own. For example, she demonstrates convincingly that lunar eclipses have an effect for much longer than was traditionally taught. She explains that there are two ways to "end" an eclipse, either by its natural cycle or by a pass of Saturn, which was new to me. She gives a useful rating system for determining how powerful an eclipse is likely to be in world events. Much of the book is devoted to mundane astrology with a discussion of charts of world leaders or events. She does spend some time on the charts of ordinary individuals but does not provide their birth data, so the reader does not have the opportunity to study the individuals' charts along side the eclipses that affected them. I found myself wishing for that data as I read the chapter on Real People & Their Eclipse Stories. For the reader's convenience there is an appendix with a listing of all solar and lunar eclipses from 1900 through 2054.
Unfortunately this listing has some minor errors and typos. The absence of the "real people's" charts and the typos in the appendix are the reason I gave only 4 stars. Otherwise, this book is well worth the effort. I learned a lot about eclipses and have been using them more in my astrological work as a result. This book would be a valuable addition to any astrologer's library.

I have long been curious about the astrology of eclipses and was glad to find Teal's book. I had forgotten that a while ago I had purchased her previous book, "Identifying Planetary Triggers" but never had time to read it. I set aside time to read "Eclipses," and was hooked. I was so impressed with "Eclipses" that I purchased a used, yellow-highlighted and underlined copy of her first book, "Predicting Events with Astrology," and have embarked on a program of reading all her books. She is a master teacher. Her writing is so clear that a hobbyist like myself can follow the principles without getting lost. She expresses her ideas compactly in beautifully clear English. Her enthusiasm for astrological research is infectious. Soon I was using her charts to find correlations between eclipses and events in my life. There was an eclipse negatively aspecting my natal Mars before each of my three surgeries. Looking at recent eclipses, I correctly foretold an event in my son's life, based on an eclipse that touched planets in my wife's and son's birth charts. Teal has a deep memory for all she has learned in 30 years of study and is able to meld conclusions reached by ancient researchers with her own unique theories. This is a pioneering work.

This is NOT one of those books on astrology with a title that sounds like its something you need, that starts off well-intended and becomes a wallowing, multi-tangented meandering about the landscape, dragging you through endless cul-de-sacs of examples you can never use in real life.

Then there are other astrologers who seem intended on using astrology like a pipe wrench to twist your perspective to their world view with a seemingly Stalinist interpretation of an innocent Zodiac. When will astrologers get it through their heads that we, the book-buying public want the principles of astrology, not the endless chopstick-picking through of individual natal charts or their useless, blind personal biases?

I was looking for clarity. I found it here in Eclipses, and this book eclipses those mindsets!

I found "Eclipses" to be everything I'd hoped (but hadn't expected) it to be when I'd ordered it. First off, it was a truly interesting read the first time through. Rather than slogging through a few chapters at a time, holding my nose and eating Rolaids while taking notes of the precious few details of information as I would with most other astrology books, I was surprised to find myself looking forward to each successive chapter, and ended up reading it in one enjoyable sitting. I really must commend Ms. Teal on this book. It must have a nice natal chart.

It's logical in format, uncluttered and concise, intelligent, precise in content, unbiased and yes, I actually have it at my desk to use frequently as a reference. This book is remarkable in how it spotlighted the information and cut a path from a logical beginning through the present and into the future. Great information included up through 2012.

Format: Paperback
Astrological software so easily prints out page after page of predictive measurements. Every day seems special by virtue of some transit, progression or solar arc to every planet, midpoint, star or hypothetical. In this book author, Celeste Teal, takes a yellow highlighter pen to such printouts by shining the light of Eclipses on astrology's other measurements.

Eclipses track the cycle of the Nodal axis through time somehow providing a conduit for the underlying energetic logic of astrology. In this volume the author certainly applies eclipses to their traditional field of application within mundane astrology. But the eye opener for me was how useful they are for dynamic extension of the client's natal chart through time. The question of whether any one transit or progression will amount to much is answered to a surprising degree by checking to see if the planet or point in question has been touched by an eclipse or not. The Author's original research suggests such degree areas remain hot for three or more years depending on various features of the eclipse. Insight into how a transit or progression may manifest in the life a client can be further refined by considering the nature of the eclipse in question: solar, lunar, north node or south node.

After applying the author's approach to my own biographical data and that of my clients, I believe I could make a credible case for a workable astrology that ignores everything that has not been first highlighted by an eclipse. At the very least Ms. Teal's treatment of eclipses provides a powerful tool for separating significant astrology from the background noise of today's computer-enabled largess of technique and measurement.
