This morning in the UAE, a partial solar eclipse took place. The partial eclipse lasted three hours between 8am and 11am, and was broadcasted live from Abu Dhabi by the UAE Space Agency’s social media channels. Not only did this solar eclipse welcome Cancer season, but it also coincided with the official start of summer, making it a 'solstice summer eclipse.’ The last time an event like this happened was on June 21, 2001. 

Eclipses, very similar to astrological Retrogrades, bring many changes into your life. They are celestial phenomenons that are meant to 'activate your destiny,' so don't be wary - get excited!

It's a great time for you to reflect on your realities and consider any major changes that you would like to make in your life, because chances are, the coming summer solar eclipses will kickstart them! 

This level of coverage of the solar disk isn't going to happen until the next 25 years, but don't worry if you weren't able to watch the skies this morning. Because the next eclipse will be taking place on July 5, and this time it'll be a lunar eclipse.

Make a note in your calendars astrology-lovers! And don't forget to adhere to the safety guidelines that come with watching eclipses, for example using special sunglasses with special filters.
