Prenatal Eclipses
- Written by Philip Graves - 21 Jan 2004
What is a prenatal eclipse?
prenatal eclipse
is the last eclipse of the Sun to have occurred before birth. It isconsidered by karmic astrologers such as the late Rose Lineman to be the primarysignificator of the karmic path of the individual, indicating all past life karma (debts andassets alike) that is relevant to the current lifetime; the kinds of relationships andperplexing situations in the present incarnation required for karmic progress; the meansof resolving karmic problems; a path to spiritual understanding; and certain facets of evolutionary progress. Non-believers in reincarnation and karma will find the theoriesoutlined in this article tenuous. They are presented here nonetheless for informationpurposes.Eclipses occur in groups of between four and six spread over about a year. Each group isknown as belonging to a particular
Saros series
, the full cycle of nineteen of whichrecurs once every approximately 18 years. Eclipses always occur at the lunar nodes,since they are where the Moon's orbit of Earth intersects the ecliptic, or plane throughwhich the Earth orbits the Sun, thereby providing a necessary condition of geometricalignment for an eclipse to occur. Each Saros series manifests as at least two North Nodeeclipses, marked N in the prenatal eclipse table linked below, and at least two SouthNode eclipses, marked S.
Finding the prenatal eclipse
Use the accompanying table
for births between 1940 and 1999. The last solareclipse in the table below to have begun before your moment of birth is your
(PE). The accompanying lunar eclipse(s) (LE), as defined below, are validwhether they occur before or after birth.
Prenatal eclipse interpretation
In natal interpretation, the prenatal eclipse (marked PE on a figure) is consideredtogether with the
initial eclipse
of its series (marked IE), as shown in the table below;and with any lunar eclipses that occur a couple of weeks before or after the prenataleclipse
(there is always at least one, and occasionally two)
, which always occur at theopposite lunar node from the prenatal eclipse, and are known as
accompanying lunareclipses
(marked LE). Also considered is the
key planet
, as explained below.The PE is interpreted in the nativity with reference to its sign and house placement, andaspects, using the same orbs as are used for any planet for the type of aspect concerned.Its
placement shows the common interests and causes of the PE generation; andthe gift of awareness that the generation is responsible for sharing with the collective.But on a personal level it will be more strongly expressed where there is found an angleor a strong planet or multiple planets in the same sign; and the positive and negativesign potentials will be brought out by harmonious and inharmonious aspects to the PE inthe figure. [The domicile rulers of the
sign colorations further colourthe sign influence.] Its sign
shows characteristics of personality that have beeninsufficiently developed (or misused) in previous incarnations, and therefore requirepersonal focus in the current life; and also indicates a suitable manner for the resolutionof karmic problems, but this will require adjustment if it conflicts with the overallelemental balance of the nativity. Its
placement describes activities and
relationships that teach karmic lessons, produce karmic progress, and can be used towork out karmic situations and resolve karmic debts. Its
link the generalpotentials of the PE as indicated by its sign and house placement to problems (shown byinharmonious aspects) and resolutions (shown by harmonious ones), taking intoconsideration the general nature and placement of each aspected planet. Harmoniousaspects act as channels to spiritual growth, while inharmonious ones tend to inhibit it,requiring effort for this blockage to be overcome.In karmic astrology, quincunxes are considered to qualify as major aspects, and areaccorded special significance as indicators of a disposition to repeat karmic errors, theresolution of which inclination requires individual effort.The
of the PE
(the almuten of its sign and degree placement)
sheds furtherlight, by its sign and house position in the figure, upon the karmic resources andsituations that will manifest in the life.Where two prenatal solar eclipses occurred since the last lunar eclipse before birth, theindividual (and his / her PE generation) has the responsibility to share two lessons withhumanity.In predictive astrology, aspects thrown by transiting or progressed planets to the natalPE activate the release of the latent potentials of the PE, taking into account the aspecttype as well as the general nature and placement of the aspecting planet. Conjunctionsand inharmonious aspects by transit and progression trigger events, whereas harmoniousaspects produce conditions or circumstances that aid the individual to vanquish karmicblockages.In synastry, aspects from the prenatal eclipse of one individual to planets in the nativityof the other indicate certain karmic functions of the relationship.
Types of prenatal eclipse
solar eclipses show a need for initiative and hard work in order to utilise thepotential of the PE.
solar eclipses bring an innate consciousness that assists inthe realisation of how to make the most of karmic assets, although not directly openingthe way to them.
solar eclipses bring not only awareness of but also easy accessto the situations and relationships in life that serve as karmic assets.
North Node
solar eclipses indicate an evolutionary state characterised by relative easeof access to spiritual enlightenment, and freedom from negative preconceptions that mayhave prevented karmic progress in previous incarnations.
South Node
solar eclipsesindicate the inheritance from previous incarnations of deeply ingrained negative biasesthat inhibit spiritual development, which, until the individually consciously overcomesthem, will be inclined to prevent the resolution of karmic problems.
Finding the Initial Eclipse
In the table below are listed the initial eclipses for the North Node (N) and South Node(S) manifestations of each series. Series marked '-E' are the earlier version of twoconcurrent versions of the same series.

Initial Eclipse Interpretation
The IE acts similarly to the dispositor of the PE, in linking the PE's scope formanifestation to another area of the figure. In interpretation, its sign placement acts as asubtle filter through which the sign placement of the PE must function, while its houseplacement links the affairs of the house concerned to those of the house tenanted by thePE, showing issues auxiliary and supplementary to those of the PE house. Where the PEand IE occupy signs of the same element or are related by likenesses in the domicilerulerships of the secondary and tertiary sign influences conferred by each of their decanand dwad placements, the sign placement of the IE will support and strengthen that of the PE.Aspects from the IE, the consideration of which is restricted to a 2º orb and to majoraspect types only, describe innate attitudes that may help or hinder characterdevelopment and spiritual growth, in accordance with the aspect type, and the generalnature and sign and house placement of the aspected planet or angle. Harmoniousaspects indicate positive attributes inherited from previous incarnations, whileinharmonious ones warn serve as warnings against the negative potentials of the houseplacement of the aspected planet or point in connection with the sign placement of theIE.Any natal aspect from the IE to the PE is of particular importance, elevating thesignificance of the IE in interpretation to almost equal ranking with the PE.Aspects by transit or progression to the IE activate the latent potentials of the PE.
The Accompanying Lunar Eclipse
The LE shows instinctual responses to the karmic situations connected with the PE, andunconscious attributes of the inner self inherited from previous incarnations. Its signplacement indicates the manner of instinctive response to karmic situations and events;while its house placement shows situations and relationships that bring spiritual supportto the individual, and activities that constructively release inner energies.Aspects to the LE are considered only by major aspect types and restricted to a 2º orb.Harmonious ones show appropriate instinctive reactions which the individual should
