Capricorn: The mountain goat depictive of the Capricorn sign is a reminder of the innate ability of sure footedness, agility and determination that resides within you. You are great leaders who teach through example, not pack mules that carry the burdens of others.
Aquarius: The greatest inventions were created out of necessity or improvements. Listen, observe and evaluate. Allow the Universe to inspire your genius to create answers to what will benefit mankind and self.
Pisces: Playing by the rules makes sense and brings order, but the game of life, requires you create rules that bring you order, stability and protection not restriction, responsibility and surrender. Let this Eclipse be your Awakening.
